By Will Oliver, August 29th 2014

Mount Eerie

Phil Elverum, a.k.a. Mount Eerie, has announced a new album titled Sauna that will be released in early 2015 via his own label P.W. Elverum & Sun.

The theme of the album is described as “vikings and zen and real life.” It comes after “over 15 months of solo production in The Unknown,” a studio in Anacortes, Washington housed in a reclaimed church. There are 12 songs, “some very short, some very long.” The press list honestly adds that “Not much else is known at this point.”

He has some upcoming tour dates this month that will see him perform “extremely stripped down” versions of the new songs. Find the tour flyer posted below. Read the rest of this entry »

Aphex Twin Announces New Album ‘Syro’

Aphex Twin

A few weekends ago green blimps were seen flying over London with both 2014 and the Aphex Twin logo on it. Then people started spotting the logo on the streets of New York City. Speculation turned towards the release of a new album, and that is indeed the case. I

t’s a new album titled Syro, and it’s his first in 13 years (since 2001′s Drukqs). He made the announcement on the site Tor, which revealed the tracklist and the image posted above.

He recently spoke to The Fader, and they provided the following bits of information ahead of the full interview which is coming soon: Read the rest of this entry »

The Juan MacLean – A Place Called Space

By Will Oliver, August 19th 2014

The Juan MacLean - A Place Called Space

The Juan MacLean is the duo of John MacLean and Nancy Whang (formerly of LCD Soundsystem). They will return with their new album In A Dream on September 16 via DFA.

According to MacLean, the new album is Whang’s time to shine, and based on first single and opening track “A Place Called Space”, this is very much true. It’s an epic 8-minute dance treasure that is an electronic-based disco revival. It takes its time to build up, releasing all tension through Whang’s ever-so familar vocals.

Enjoy it below.

Foxygen - And Star Power

Foxygen had a wild 2013, one that most people will remember for all the drama that the band endured. Unfortunately all that seemed to overshadow the fact that they released We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, an album that landed on my best albums of 2013 list.

I assumed it would be a while before we heard new music from the guys, but that’s far from the case. They’ve announced that they got a new album on the way, and it’s an epic. It’s called …And Star Power and features 24-tracks, running at a lengthy 82-minutes. Wow.

TV On The Radio Announce New Album: ‘Seeds’

By Will Oliver, August 11th 2014

TV On The Radio

This fall TV On The Radio will return with a new album titled Seeds, set for release on Harvest Records. The album was recorded at Federal Prism in Los Angeles and produced by the band’s very own Dave Sitek.

They’ve been playing some new material live, including at their Governors Ball set this year, which I caught.

Here’s what vocalist Tunde Adebimpe had to say about the album:

We’ve been through a lot of stuff in the past few years that could have stopped the band cold; but I’m glad we got it together and took stock of the unique connection we have between each other because the record is, 1000%, without a doubt, the best thing we’ve ever done.”

The announcement came with a 25-second teaser video, which you can find below.

The Drums Announce New Album: ‘Encyclopedia’

By Will Oliver, July 29th 2014

The Drums - Encyclopedia

The Drums will return with new album Encyclopedia on September 22 via Minor Records. The album will mark the first time since the Summertime EP that The Drums have recorded with just Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham.

We already heard first single “Magic Mountain”, and now the band have revealed the album’s tracklist and some insight into the album. Here’s a quote from Jonny about Encyclopedia:

Encyclopedia is full of magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout. We were feeling very angry, confused, and alone when we made this album; and we wanted to be very honest this time around, even if being honest meant making some people uncomfortable. We’ve left the beach for higher ground, always searching for hope.

Based on the new directed heard on “Magic Mountain,” the band are staying true to their hearts and taking the ship wherever it needs to go. Got to respect them for that.

Can’t wait to hear the record. Check out the tracklist below.

1. Magic Mountain
2. I Can’t Pretend
3. I Hope Times Doesn’t Change Him
4. Kiss Me Again
5. Let Me
6. Break My Heart
7. Face Of God
8. U.S. National Park
9. Deep In My Heart
10. Bell Laboratories
11. There Is Nothing Left
12. Wild Geese

Karen O - Crush Songs

Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O has finally announced her first solo album. It’s titled Crush Songs and it’s coming out on September 9 via Julian Casablancas’ label Cult Records. The solo album feels overdue, after various guest contributions and soundtrack appearances over the last few years (such as the lovely Moon Song for last year’s fantastic film Her).

The album was actually recorded back in 2006 and 2007, described as an intimate lo-fi bedroom recordings, similar to the style of “The Moon Song.” O describes the album in a letter that she posted on her site. Find that below.

We’ll have more on the album shortly. I’m very excited to hear it.

Philip Selway - Weatherhouse

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway will release his new solo album Weatherhouse on October 7 via Bella Union.

He’s shared the spaced out and dreamy “Coming Up For Air”, which serves as the album’s open track, as well as its first single. Here’s what Selway had to say about the song:

“It’s very much about taking stock of my life. I wanted to convey a sense of release and affirmation. This was the first song that we recorded. Immediately it felt in a very different space from Familial.

There are some Radiohead aspects to it, but there’s definitely a shift that is very much of his own.

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz - Tyranny

Julian Casablancas and The Voidz have been playing shows as early as March this year (as well as Governors Ball) but they did so without any official word of an official release. That changed last week, as Casablancas announced that the album is called Tyranny, and it will be released on September 23 via his own Cult Records.

If you pre-order the digital version of the album now, you can pick it up at the discounted price of $3.87.

Tyranny was written and recorded over the past year and was produced by Shawn Everett. The Voidz band features Casablancas and fellow Voidz band members: Jeramy Gritter, Amir Yaghmai, Jeff Kite, Jake Bercovici, and Alex Carapetis. The album incorporates world underground music from the 70s and 80s, along with hardcore/punk and “modern harmony”, using modern and analog recording and sampling techniques. In reference to the album’s title, Casablancas says:

Tyranny has come in many forms throughout history. Now, the good of business is put above anything else, as corporations have become the new ruling body. Most decisions seem to be made like ones of a medieval king: whatever makes profit while ignoring and repressing the truth about whatever suffering it may cause (like pop music, for that matter).

With the announcement comes the latest album teaser, with some more songs clips along with footage from the bands South American tour. With that said, you can find the bands fall tour dates posted below (along with the trailer).

October 16 Philadelphia, PA Electric Factory
October 17 Washington DC 9:30 Club
October 18 Charlottesville, VA Jefferson Theatre
October 20 Chattanooga, TN Track 29
October 21 Nashville, TN Marathon Music Works
October 22 Atlanta, GA Masquerade

October 30 Austin, TX Emo’s
October 31 Houston, TX House of Blues
November 6 Los Angeles, CA Wiltern Theatre
November 9 San Francisco, CA Regency Center
November 11 Portland, OR Crystal Ballroom

Simian Mobile Disco Announce New Album ‘Whorl’

By Will Oliver, June 29th 2014 — with 1 comment

Simian Mobile Disco - Whorl

Simian Mobile Disco, the British-based electronic music duo of James Ford (often Arctic Monkeys producer) and Jas Shaw. They have announced that they will release their new album Whorl on September 9 via Anti-.

The duo rehearsed over a period of three days in April in the desert, resulting in a one-off sold out live show at Pappy & Harriet’s, Pioneertown, This performance allowed 900 fans to witness part of the recording process. Those sessions in the desert were taped and became the basis for their new album and live project. They didn’t use computers, but rather: two modular synths, two sequencers, and a mixer.

The duo has also announced a U.S> tour which is aimed to re-create the recording sessions live. The tour will bring them to Brookyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 21. I’ve shared the full list of tour dates below, along with the album’s tracklist and an album trailer. First single “Tangents” will be released on July 1.
