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

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.

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

Pink Floyd Announce New Album: The Endless River

By Will Oliver, July 20th 2014

Pink Floyd

It’s been 20 years since Pink Floyd released their last album, The Division Bell. The band will finally break that spell, with a new album called The Endless River, which will be released this October.

The band posted the following message on their website:

Pink Floyd can confirm that they are releasing a new album, The Endless River, in October 2014. It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer.

As you can tell from that, the album won’t include former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters. This is exciting news for Pink Floyd fans, who have waited two decades for this moment.

Alex and Miles

So I’m playing a bit of catch-up here, so no need to roll your eyes and tell me this is old news. I’m sure at least one or two of you somehow missed this bit of news over the last few weeks. So this is for you.

Apparently the always loveable Alex Turner and Miles Kane, who you know as The Last Shadow Puppets, have their sights set on Hollywood. According to Digital Spy, the duo are reportedly always talking about getting the group back together for another album, but they also have plans for the movie business.

In an interview, Kane told Digital Spy that the film has “a sort of X-Men kind of vibe and sort of set in the ’60s,” but that was all that he would give away. They don’t plan on starring in the film themselves, other than a cameo.

Part of me is skeptical about it actually happening, but if it does, we can only imagine the results. Plus, it would pretty much guarantee that they would soundtrack the score themselves, so if it means new music from The Last Shadow Puppets, sign me up.

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.
