RÖYKSOPP & ROBYN

Last week Röyksopp and Robyn announced they were going on tour together. This makes sense as they’ve worked together much in the past. Now they’ve announced they will release a new mini-album (only 5 songs) called Do It Again on May 26 via Cherrytree/Interscope Records.

Here’s what Röyksopp had to say about the album:

This 5 track mini-album is the accumulation and embodiment of the synergy between Robyn and ourselves. We’ve intended this to be a diverse yet cohesive and thought through musical venture; it’s meant to be an expression where pop & art reign side by side.

This doesn’t sound like Röyksopp featuring Robyn or Robyn produced by Röyksopp, it’s just something else entirely

This announcement came with a snippet preview of one of album track “Monument.” It’s only about a minute and a half, but it’s enough to give you a taste. It’s sounding quite good.

Find the snippet posted below as well as the album’s tracklisting. Read the rest of this entry »

Create The Tins New Logo

By Will Oliver, April 13th 2014

The Tins

The Tins have some big things on the way this year. But first, they need your help in creating their new official band log. That’s right, you can design the band’s logo.

For the next two weeks (April 11-April 25) you can submit an original logo design for The Tins that they will use as their official look. To submit, you can post it to their facebook page, twitter page, or any other social media outlet.

They will choose the best one and will give the winner a very special prize package, and you will have the the honor of having your logo live on in the rock and roll history books forever.

Here are the suggestions from the band, taken straight from the official entry page:

Think outside the box, and be as creative as possible. Nothing is off limits!

We are looking for something unusual yet exciting! Surprises are welcome!

And that’s everything! Very simple, but the potential is infinite. Let the right side of your brain take over, and unleash creative fury the likes of which the world has never seen!

Good Luck!

So there you have it. What are you waiting for? Get to it. And enjoy some “Whiteout” below.

[new]: How To Dress Well – Repeat Pleasure

By Will Oliver, April 3rd 2014

How To Dress Well

How To Dress Well has shared a new track called “Repeat Pleasure”, the latest from his newly announced album “What Is This Heart?” The LP is out June 24 via Weird World. This comes after “Words I Don’t Remember.”

“Repeat Pleasure” is a glossy track that showcases Tom Krell’s artistic growth. Well produced and full of emotion, only in a more upbeat poppy manner. “Repeat Pleasure” is an appropriate name, for sure.

Enjoy it below.

Alexis Taylor

Hot Chip frontman/vocalist Alexis Taylor has announced his first solo album in nearly six years (since 2008′s Rubbed Out). It’s titled Await Barbarians and will be released via Domino Records on June 10.

“Elvis Has Left The Building” is the first track that Taylor has previewed off the album, and it’s a lovely affair. An intimate ballad of sorts, Taylor lets hit voice do the work over some light piano chords with some minor electronic effects and hi-hat taps.

Give it a try below.

WYR0514tubejktnoguidlines

Parquet Courts have shared the details of their new album. It’s called Sunbathing Animal and out June 3 via What’s Your Rupture?/Mom + Pop.

They’ve shared the first single and title track, a ball of energy that comes right at your bursting hard out of the gate. I can already imagine myself moshing along to this in the crowd at Brooklyn’s Sugarhill Supper Club this summer. Tickets for that show are still on sale. Get them while you can.

Stream “Sunbathing Animal” below. Catch the album tracklist and their 2014 tour dates below that.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah -

Only Run is the new album from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and it’s out June 3 (they’re self-releasing it). They’ve let go of the album’s first single, a heavy hitting track that features the vocals of the one and only Matt Berninger (of The National).

It’s weird hearing the strained vocals of CYHSY’s Alec Ounsworth and the deep rich vocals of Matt Berninger working together and even dueting. As a longtime fan of both bands, it’s a very cool (if not surreal) moment.

Stream it below and head to the song’s soundcloud page to grab a free mp3 download.

The Antlers Announce New Album ‘Familiars’ | Listen To “Palace”

By Will Oliver, April 2nd 2014 — with 1 comment

The Antlers

It’s been three years since Burst Apart, the last full-length from The Antlers. Sure, we got two EP’s ([together] and Undersea) but it’s been too long since we got a full album full of their heartbreaking beauty. We’re in luck, as they have announced that their new album Familiars is out June 17 via Anti-.

Familiars was recorded, engineered and produced by the band in their Brooklyn studio. Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Beach House) mixed he album at DNA Downtown Studios.

The band has released the video for first cut “Palace” and as you expect, it’s a heart-breaker. What starts with light piano cords and a lonely horn turns into a devastating piece from frontman Peter Silberman. A heartfelt confession that lays it all out on the table.

Stream it below via the music video, which was directed by Hana Tajima. I’ve also included the tracklisting for Familiars which is posted after “Palace.”

White Lung

White Lung have announced that their new album is titled Deep Fantasy and will be released via Domino Records on June 17.

Now a trio, guitarist Kenneth William also handled bass duties, with Wax Idols’ Hether Fortune handling the bass live on tour.

Below, take a stream to the album’s opening track “Drown With The Monster”, a fierce gut-blistering track of fury.

Jack White - Lazaretto

Jack White will release his new album Lazaretto on June 10 via Third Man Records. Which makes sense as to why he has a fair share of Festival dates lined up this summer (including Governors Ball).

He also delivered the first taste of the album in the form of an instrumental album track titled “High Ball Stepper.” It’s as bluesy and dirty featuring some fizzy guitar riffs as you’d expect from White, even if it’s a bold choice for the first song shared. But it’s Jack White, he does as he pleases. The first single will follow sometime soon.

The album will feature a limited edition pressed by Third Man Records as a part of their Vault subscription. It will be the only limited edition that they press, so don’t sleep on it. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Read more about the package at Jack White’s website, and if you like what you see go ahead and treat yourself to the album here.

Stream “High Ball Stepper” below through the cool video directed by Ben Swank & James Cathcart. Read the rest of this entry »

Lollapalooza Anounces 2014 Lineup

By Will Oliver, March 27th 2014

Lollapalooza

The 2014 Lollapalooza lineup was announced yesterday, and it seems to be garnering some mixed reactions. Headlining the fest are Outkast (duh), Eminem, Kings Of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Lorde, The Avett Brothers and Foster The People. I can understand the disappointment. While it’s (of course) great to see Arctic Monkeys there, the rest of the list is pretty subpar.

From there, here are some artists listed that caught my eye: Interpol, Cut Copy, Portugal. The Man, Nas, Childish Gambino, Broken Bells, Spoon, Young The Giant, Lykke Li, Chance The Rapper, Phantogram, Grouplove, CHVRCHES, Chromeo, Darkside, The 1975, Jenny Lewis, Phosphorescent, The Temper Trap, Bombay Bicycle Club, White Denim, Typhoon, Warpaint, Kate Nash, Kodaline, Lucius, Blood Orange, Jagwar Ma, Parquet Courts, Temples, NoNoNo, Papa, The Districts, Ratking, The So So Glos,

While the headliners aren’t all that spectacular, the other acts playing the festival are solid. So basically the day section of Lollapalooza may be where the real action is.

Check out the full lineup with the photo above, or check out a day by day breakdown below.
