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.

Tweedy

Tweedy is the father/son duo of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy and his 18-year-old son Spencer, who plays drums. On September 16 they will release their debut album Sukierae, which will be release via Wilco’s label dBpm. Joining in on the fun live on tour are bassist Darin Grey, guitarist Jim Elkington, and keyboardist Liam Cunningham.

Earlier this month they released their debut track “I’ll Sing It” on Wilco World. It’s a lovely little number that features backing vocals from Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius. Spencer holds is own very well alongside his dad. After all, he does have the mans genes.

Interpol Announce New Album: ‘El Pintor’

By Will Oliver, June 5th 2014

Interpol - El Pintor

With their headline spot at Governors Ball this weekend, now is a good time for Interpol to announce news of their new album. It’s titled El Pintor and will be released sometime this September via Matador. Hopefully they will play plenty of the new material over the weekend, as they did in England this March, where they played “My Desire”, “Anywhere” and “All The Rage Back Home.”

Here’s the message that Matador shared about the album today on the Matablog:

On September 9, we’ll be releasing INTERPOL‘s first new album in 4 years, ‘El Pintor’ on LP, compact disc and all digital formats in North, Central and South America (PIAS/Co-op will be handling the rest of the world). Recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in New York City with engineer James Brown, the band’s fifth album – taut and epic in equal measure – finds Interpol recharged, and ready to reclaim their mantle as one of the planet’s best. ‘El Pintor’’s songs (track listing below) were written and produced by Interpol, with Daniel Kessler playing guitar & piano, Samuel Fogarino on drums, and Paul Banks on vocals, guitars, and taking over bass duties for the first time. The album also features contributions from The Secret Machines’ Brandon Curtis (keyboards), Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. (Beck, Air) playing keyboards on “Tidal Wave,” and Rob Moose (Bon Iver) playing violin and viola on “Twice as Hard.” ‘El Pintor’ was mixed by Alan Moulder at Assault and Battery Studios, and mastered by Greg Calbi.

Interestingly Paul Banks will handle bass duties for the first time.

They’ve shared a making of video/trailer, which Adam Levite directed. There’s some short clips of new material included. Find that below, along with the El Pintor tracklist. Read the rest of this entry »

Caribou - Our Love

This year will see Dan Snaith release a new Caribou album called Our Love. It’s out on October 7 via Merge Records. It’s his sixth studio album as Caribou and the first since 2010′s Swim. The album features collaborations with Jessy Lanza and Owen Pallett.

He’s released “Can’t Do Without You” a sensual electronic exploration that takes over the senses in a powerful and overwhelming fashion. It’s not your traditional love song, but when you hear Snaith repeat the chorus of “Can’t Do Without You” over the bubbling electronic effects, its hard not to get swept up with all the commotion.

Stream “Can’t Do With You” below, where I’ve also shared some newly announced tour dates and the album’s tracklist.

Tennis

Denver husband-and-wife duo Tennis have announced that their new album Ritual In Repeat will be released on September 9 via Communion Music. It’s their quick follow-up their Small Sound EP, which was released last November. Production duties were handled by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, Jim Eno of Spoon, and Richard Swift of The Shins & The Black Keys.

First single “Never Work For Free” is available to stream, and it’s a delightful track bouncy and bubbling, something of a pop song that be right at home in the 80s. Imagine if the radio actually recognized pop music like this? The world would be a much better place.

The song is available to download for free (ironically, of course) right now at their website (in exchange for your e-mail). Otherwise, you can stream it right now, below.

Foo Fighters Will Release New Album In November

By Will Oliver, June 3rd 2014

Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters have announced that their new album will be released this November. It’s currently untitled, but will be released via Roswell/RCA. It was recorded in eight different cities (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Washington, D.C., Nashville, New Orleans, and Seattle).

That aspect ties into the band’s HBO series: Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, which documents the recording of the album through the various cities.  The album, the bands eighth, is their most ambitious yet; with at least one song from the album having been recorded in each of the cities, with local legends of the city sitting in on the sessions. Dave Grohl would hold off from putting down words to the songs until the final day of each session, in order to write lyrics inspired by the experiences.

HBO has released a teaser for the series, which features a sample of a new song that we can only assume is from the album. Find that below. Read the rest of this entry »

Merchandise - After The End

Merchandise are back and will release a new album titled After The End on August 26 via 4AD.

They recorded and produced the album themselves (they got some mixing help from Gareth Jones) over a six-month period at the house they shared together in Tampa, just like they did with their previous albums. The band has expanded from the trio of Carson Cox, David Vassalotti, and Patrick Brady, to a 5-piece, adding Chris Horn and Elsner Nino.

Clearly this is a new chapter for them, and you can hear this very clearly in the album’s first single “Little Killer.” The band heads in a more clean-cut pop direction that really hits its stride and runs with it. That guitar riff is simply irresistible. Throw in those trusty vocals from Carson Cox and we got a real winner on our hands.

Enjoy “Little Killer” and check out some new tour dates below.

By Will Oliver, May 29th 2014

Anand Wilder and Maxwell Kardon

Break Line is the passion project Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder. He’s been working on the project along with Maxwell Kardon since 2009, and now the time has finally come for the album to be released.

The project looks back to rock concept albums of the early 70′s, “following the classic arc of lost love, betrayal, and pride.” The album is described with the following description:

Inspired by this golden age of musical theatre and an old folk song taught in Quaker schools in the 50s, they created their own version of a classic story of betrayal, pride and lost love.

The album includes many collaborations, from fellow Yeasayer bandmates, to members of bands such as Vampire Weekend, Man Man, Dirty Projectors, Suckers, MGMT, and Dragons Of Zynth.

Break Line The Musical is the name of the album that they’re releasing, and will be released July 15 via Secretly Canadian. You can get a taste of the album with the lovely album cut “Wedding Day” which is available to stream below.
