Billboard Music Awards: Swift Rules, Bieber Defends, and Miguel Dropkicks Fan...
May 20, 2013 11:48am | The Daily Swarm
The 2013 Billboard Music Awards happened yesterday and Taylor Swift essentially ruled the night. She won eight trophies in all – including Top Artist, Top Female Artist and Top Billboard 200 artist, Top Female Artist, Top Country Artist, Top Digital Songs Artist, and the highly-coveted Artist of the Year award. Gotye still seems to be getting plenty mileage out of “Somebody That I Used To Know” because he swept four major categories and Rihanna scored big in the R&B department. Via Billboard Biz:
In addition, Justin Bieber scored a Milestone Award and addressed recent criticism in his speech.
James Blake announces fall tour
May 20, 2013 11:48am | Cosequence Of Sound
James Blake will return to North America this fall for a new leg of tour dates in support of his sophomore album, Overgrown. His travels will begin in mid-October with a pair of shows in Los Angeles, including an intimate performance at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, and stretch through late November.
For a quick preview, read Sam Willett’s review of Blake’s recent show in Chicago. Also replay Blake’s performance of “Retrograde” on Late Show with David Letterman.
James Blake 2013 Tour Dates:
Butter The Children signed to Downtown, playing shows; Ovlov on tour, releasing debut LP (dates & MP3s)

Butter The Children
NYC pop shoegazers Butter The Children (members of Sweet Bulbs, Night Manager, and Le Rug) play local shows a lot and it's recently been announced that they've signed to Downtown Records. Last year they self released their impressive self-titled EP, and Downtown will presumably put out its followup at some point this year. You can download the EP for free at bandcamp and stream in full below. One track, "Lupus," can be downloaded above as well. The EP is a quick blast of punchy pop rock with MBV-inspired guitar wails, and if you've yet to see them at one of their many shows, they bring that same kind of power to the stage too.
As usual, they have upcoming local dates, including one this Friday (5/24) at Big Snow with Big Muff, Roses, (ex-Deer Tick), and Ceramics. They also have a show scheduled at Death by Audio on June 27 with Ovlov, Suns, and Flagland. Both shows are all ages and admission for both shows is $7 at the door.
Newton, CT's Ovlov, who also play that DBA show, are set to release their debut album, Am, on July 2 via Exploding in Sound, who are becoming pretty consistent in supplying good '90s-inspired indie rock (like Speedy Ortiz, who since signed to Carpark). And lik...

Comedy character makes return for new online series
May 20, 2013 11:34am | StereoGum
In the starkly arty black-and-white video for their charged-up anthem “Best Of Friends,” we see the members of the anarchic, party-starting British band Palma Violets rocking out before a bored and hostile crowd and committing petty acts of street crime. It’s a far cry from the drunken revelry of their “We Found Love” video, but it has its own kind of energy to it. Watch the video below.

James Blake returned this year with his excellent new album, Overgrown, and has been touring in support of it. He recently wrapped up the North American portion of the tour which came to NYC for two Terminal 5 shows (and a DJ appearance) and he's now just announced another North American leg that will go down this fall and bring him back to Terminal 5 on November 6 and 7 for two more shows at the Manhattan venue. Tickets for those shows are not on sale yet but check ticketmaster for updates.
All dates are listed, along with the video for "Retrograde,"

James Blake announces North American tour dates
May 20, 2013 11:33am | Fact Magazine
The Overgrown troubadour returns to North America this Autumn.
After performing at Drake’s OVO Fest in August and a slate of UK dates in September, Blake will return to North America for two dozen dates in the US and Canada.
Blake just finished his most recent tour of the continent last week. Read our review of Overgrown, an album that FACT’s Angus Finlayson described as “a heartening step in the right direction, and reassurance that Blake
Hangout 2013 Sunday: Stevie Wonder, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Best Coast, & More
May 20, 2013 11:32am | StereoGum
You don’t throw a music festival on the beach and neglect to invite Best Coast. Gulf Shores isn’t what Bethany Cosentino had in mind when she named her band, but even she saw the parallels: “This next song, it’s about California, but all of the things I talk about in it you guys have here.” They then commenced with “The Only Place,” one of the nearly indistinguishable (but identically awesome) sunshine refractions they performed at the Chevrolet Stage just after noon Sunday. Cosentino is one of those pop savants whose every lazy melody seems like the product of divine intervention; you can count on her songs to hit you in the heart. That said, half the charm of a Best Coast show is her rambling between songs. She fielded questions about her pet
Liars @ Le Poisson Rouge: May 19, 2013

Art-rock three-piece Liars brought their synthy drone-pop to Le Poisson Rouge last night, and managed to keep the audience satiated despite the notable absence of celestial opening act Doldrums. The band played tracks from last year’s expectation-crushing WIXIW as well as some suspenseful new material. Guess it just goes to show, sometimes one is enough.

Will the woman who lost a small baby please come to the stage...
Two days after their appearance on Fallon and one day after they headlined Wellmont Theater in Montclair, the Flaming Lips played a 6:15pm set in Prospect Park as part of the first day of the second year of GoogaMooga (which ended up not having a third day). They want on in the light after the Darkness and before Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Here are some pictures, the setlist and video from their set. It all continues below...

Premiere: Hear a second snippet of Ü
May 20, 2013 11:18am | Fact Magazine
It really does what it says on the tin.
Originally released on FRAK’s influential Börft imprint, Ü’s Great Dose of Monotonous Techno still sounds as great, and as monotonous as it no doubt did back in 1992. Produced by the sadly departed Joel Brindefalk, this snippet is the second we’ve heard from the record and excels with a blend of thick, pounding techno and the kind of haunting analogue electronics Aphex Twin made his own back in the early 90s.
Remastered by Swedish producer Andreas Tilliander (aka Mokira and TM404) who was a friend of Brindefalk, we now get to hear the track at its beefy best and while the omnipresent cassette hiss gives the track character, it’s nice to hear things spruced up a bit.
Great Dose of Monotonous Techno will be released in June on vinyl and digital via Digitalis.
Listen to John Fogerty and Foo Fighters
May 20, 2013 11:15am | Cosequence Of Sound
Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty’s guest-heavy ninth studio album, Wrote a Song for Everyone, hits stores on May 28th via Vanguard Records. In anticipation, Rolling Stone premiered his electrified rendition of “Fortunate Son” that he put together with Sound City pals the Foo Fighters. Granted, they played it live on-stage every night at this past Spring’s Sound City Players gigs, but it’s nice to hear the studio version finally. Regardless of the rock, I’m still a sucker for the original, but it ain’t me, it ain’t me…yeah, you get the point. Stream it here.

Strangeways, here we come: see The Smith

Graphic design, transit, and The Smiths, united at last.
This is pretty neat: BuzzFeed points to this graphical representation of The Smith’s intertwined discography as a tube map, designed by Proof Spirit.
Click below for an enlarged version. Last year saw the usual rash of Smiths-reunion rumors, but it appears that we’ll have to settle for 30-year-old rehearsal footage.
