When My Bloody Valentine play a show in your neck of the woods, you go and see them. I was lucky enough to catch them a few years ago at All Points West 2009, which now feels like ages ago. All I remember was that it was a hot day, and the large amounts of Tool fans in the crowd didn’t make for the best atmosphere, so I didn’t get the best experience. I do remember it being extremely loud, to the point that ear plugs are mandatory, not optional – if you want to keep hearing that is. Read the rest of this entry »

[music video]: DIIV – Wait (NSFW)

By Will Oliver, February 20th 2013

DIIV

There’s a lot going on in DIIV’s music video for “Wait.” Firstly, if you’re at work, don’t watch. The video features lots of boobs and ass and all that good stuff. It even features Sky Ferreira, who just happens to be dating DIIV’s Zachary Cole (of course they’re dating).

The video was directed by Sandy Kim who shot it on a Super 8 camera, and edited it stoned (via The Fader). All of these revolving factors give us one hell of a video.

Dive Change Name To DIIV, Share Single: “Doused”

By Will Oliver, May 2nd 2012 — with 1 comment

Dive the side-project of Beach Fossils’ Zachary Smith has changed their named to DIIV out of respect to the original band Dive, a Belgian industrial band formed in the early 1990s.

The band also included a stream of a new single “Doused” from debut album Oshin. The song channel’s the power of new wave acts such as New Order with some very danceable guitar riffage.

Check out another song from Oshin, “How Long Have You Known?” here.

Oshin
is out June 26 via Captured Tracks.

Beach Fossils @ Bowery Ballroom (February 23, 2012)

By Will Oliver, February 24th 2013

Beach Fossils | Bowery Ballroom | 2.23.13

The last time I saw Beach Fossils was at 285 Kent in the summer of 2011. It ruled. I was with some good friends and had an absolute blast rocking out with the Brooklyn boys. At the time, the band featured Zachary Cole Smith (frontman of DIIV) and John Peña (Heavenly Beat) in the lineup. Those guys have now moved on to those projects, leaving Beach Fossils with an alternative lineup.

I remember their live show featuring the songs played at a blitzkrieg like speed with a punk edge that left the crowd going wild. This was not really found tonight at Bowery Ballroom.

The band was making their first NYC headlining show in a year or so to celebrate the release of their new album Clash The Truth. Maybe with all these factors at play I was unfairly expecting too much.The band wasn’t the same. They started out relatively strong, but had me lost during the middle duration of the set, lacking the energy and punch that made them so enjoyable before. Their sound wasn’t nearly as tight, which made me realize how much losing Smith & Peña affected the band.

Save for the finishing touch of “Daydream”, I left Delancey Street with an underwhelming performance, a drastic change from the euphoric night I spent with the Brooklyn boys in the summer of 2011.

Pretty solid lineup. I may have to make it out just to catch Sir Paul already. Tickets go on sale this Saturday at noon.

About 200 of you guys participated in our annual readers poll, and the results were tight. You had the chance to vote for 5 albums, and I gave each album a point value, decreasing with each vote. So first place got 5 points, second place got 4, etc…

The race was very close between Frank Ocean & Tame Impala, but in the end, Frank Ocean took home the Orange gold. All in all, the taste of you faithful bunch alligns quite well with mine, minus Mumford & Sons. In total, 252!! albums were voted for, which is insane. That pretty much sums up how much music we digest. Which makes these top 25 albums that much more impressive.

See the results below with the points earned. Well done guys, and here is to a happy 2013! Here is my favorite albums of 2012 as well as my favorite songs.
