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).

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.

Weezer

Weezer have announced that their new album is titled Everything Will Be Alright In The End. They made the announcement via a teaser video that they shared on their tumblr.

No release date has been annoucned yet, but it will be released on Republic, the band’s first for the label. Cars frontman Ric Ocasek produced the album.

I just saw the band at Firefly, and although they didn’t play any new songs, they played my favorite set of the festival. They still got it, and part of me is hoping that they finally put out the album that we all know that they have in them. We shall see.

Until then, check out the teaser video below. It’s the 9th in the series. Find all the rest on their youtube channel.

Death From Above 1979 Announce New Album: ‘The Physical World’

By Will Oliver, June 25th 2014 — with 1 comment

Death From Above 1979

It’s about damn time. That’s what I said when I read the news that Canadian noise-rock duo Death From Above 1979 will finally release a new album. It’s titled The Physical World, and will be released on September 9 via Last Gang Records. It’s the long-awaited follow-up to their debut album You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine which came out a decade ago. Feeling old yet?

The duo broke the news during an interview with NME. Singer/drummer Sebastien Grainger shed some light on their thought process on the record and the possible reception it will receive from fans and the press.

No matter what Jesse and I do, on whatever scale of success it’s sat on, there’s always some kind of reference to Death From Above. It’s only frustrating because it’s so lazy. So we’re putting out a Death From Above record and if the press is like, ‘It’s not what we expected,’ or however they react to it, it’s like, ‘Well, you’ve been fucking asking for it.

This record is a key for us. It will permit us to go play the shows we want to play and it gives us the freedom to do what we want.

It’s amazing to think that we are actually getting a new record from these guys (although its been known that it was on the way) It’s something I never thought would actually happen. A true “pinch me” sort of moment. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.

Bear In Heaven - Time Is Over One Day Old

Bear In Heaven will release new album Time Is Over One Day Old on August 5 via Dead Oceans.

Here’s what singer Jon Philpot had to say about the album:

We’re setting aside the things that most people focus on [and instead] staking our claim in some ethereal place. A lot of shedding, getting rid of layers and pre-conceptions… breaking up with old ways of thinking, old ways of being, starting to look at this thing in a new way and finding something positive.

The announcement came with the release of single “Time Between”, a synth-based song that dives deep into its trippy waters (sorta has a British vibe to it) and drowns you with all its layers. I’m enjoying it more and more with every listen.

Find it posted below.

[new]: Spoon – Rent I Pay

By Will Oliver, June 25th 2014

Spoon - They Want My Soul

Spoon will release new album They Want My Soul on August 5 via Loma Vista. They played some new material from the album at their Governors Ball set earlier this month, as well as their NPR-hosted show at Le Poison Rogue, where they premiered the album’s single “Rent I Pay.”

The live performance blew me away in person, and the band hit the same highs on the recorded version. It’s the album’s opener and it sets the tone right with sharp riffs, persistent percussion from Jim Eno and some well placed organ bits. It’s available to stream below. You can also find a quote about the album that the band shared on their facebook, as well as the album’s tracklisting and some new tours dates, which include a Central Park show on September 10.

The New Pornographers - Brill Bruisers

It’s been four years since The New Pornographers previous album, Together. So it’s good news to hear that they will release their new album Brill Bruisers on August 26 via Matador Records. The album does include both Neko Case and Dan Bejar

Here’s a quote from frontman A.C. Newman about the album:

This is a celebration record. After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down and the music reflects that.

This vibe is certainly felt throughout their fantastic comeback single (and title track) “Brill Bruisers”, which is just classic New Pornographers in every sense. Big bristling riffs over collaborative vocals that unite for some colorful moments throughout the tracks awesome run. They’re big in full swing.

Enjoy it below, where I have also shared the album’s tracklist and their new tour dates, which includes a November 17 performance in NYC at Hammerstein Ballroom.

Ty Segall Announces New Album: ‘Manipulator’

By Will Oliver, June 24th 2014

Ty Segall - Manipulator

The man, the legend, Mr. Ty Segall will return with a new album titled Manipulator. In fact, it’s a giant album loaded with 17 songs. This will be Ty’s sixth album in the last four years, which is absolutely insane considering how consistently solid all the albums are. It will be released via Drag City on August 26.

Here’s the epic description that graced the press release I received:

To see these peeps, to realize their dreams and visions, Ty kept working, kept writing, laying down more tracks than ever. New musical expressions pop and surprise relentlessly throughout all the knockout tunes of Manipulator which feature Ty’s helium-cooled vocals, sounding more powerful and dynamic than ever, and many sounds in the mix, but most of all, SO many guitars! Strangled-neck solos recalling the good old days down by the river with Neil, numbed-and-unplugged discursions, three-quarter quartets raising their din in a few key places, waves of sparkling acoustics with ominous, Love-ly undertones – and then, torrents of filthy git-grunge, exploding into the chorus, washing everything away, fusing the blackness of Sabbath with the grime and grab-ass of the Stooges and the sweet swinging tones of the Stones. All in the name of getting higher on the music. Why have one guitar solo when you can have a few in the same space? There’s so little time, and a LOT to say.

You can get an early taste of what the album has to offer via the 3-minute long epic video teaser that features various song clips. You can find that posted below, along with the album’s tracklist.

The Rentals – Thought Of Sound

By Will Oliver, June 24th 2014

The Rentals

The Rentals is the band of Matt Sharp, who you may know best as Weezer’s former bassist. Back in the early 90’s he left Weezer to form his own band, The Rentals, who went on to release two albums. However, it’s been nearly 15 years since the band released their last album.

That changes on August 26 when they release their new album Lost in Alphaville via Polyvinyl. Sharp wrote and produced the album with a band that consisted of Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, Jessica Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, Lauren Chipman of The Section Quartet, and Ryen Slegr of Ozma.

The band have made up for lost time in a big way on first single “Thought Of Sound” which sounds like it just woke up from a big 90s nap, ready to share its nostalgic vibes. It hits all the right marks, giving off plenty of power-pop vibes that are too good to resist. Enjoy it below.
