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

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.

The Unicorns

I know I’m late on this, but talking to some people at Firefly over the weekend I realized not everyone heard the news. The Unicorns (who hinted at a possibly reunion earlier in the year), are officially reuniting for a few live shows.

The band will play 5 live shows opening for Arcade Fire at their shows in New York and L.A. in August. They also now have a twitter and a soundcloud page, which bodes well for future happenings. The shows will also include Dan Deacon.

If you hadn’t already purchased your tickets for Arcade Fire’s shows, here’s even more reason to do so.

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.

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.

The Whitest Boy Alive Break Up

By Will Oliver, June 5th 2014

The Whitest Boy Alive

The Whitest Boy Alive are no more. The German-Norwegian band have officially broken up, making the announcement a few days ago on their facebook page.

The message reads:

Dear Fans. We are no longer composing or playing together as The Whitest Boy Alive. The Rules we made for ourself became a Golden Cage. Thanks for all the support and love we have received during the years. Special mention goes out to: Mexico, Roskilde, Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, Colombia, Geoff McFetridge, WMF, Tape, Atilano Gonzales, Jonas Verwijnen, Mathias Powerline, Midnight Magic, Dena, The New Wine, Rubies, Kakkmaddafakka, Cafe Cairo, Trebbi, Brisbane, Belgrade, Paradiso, Sarajevo, Fred Falke, Morgan Geist, Tokyo, Cat5, Moodymann, John Selway, Jenne Grabowski, Nilgün, Jan Simon, Norman Nitzsche, GigMex, K7, Zebralution, Grooveattack, Smalltown Supersound, fuck you Ola Borgström, Sleeping Star, Aksara, KangnMusic, Marie Staritz, Saap, Markus Ellmer, Arnold and Sascha Steinfurt.

Erlend, Marcin, Sebastian, Daniel.

This isn’t surprising, considering it’s been five years since the band released new music. It’s a bummer that we won’t be hearing anymore jams like “Burning”, but hey, at least we got their songs to remember them by. They released two albums Dreams (2006) and Rules (2009).

Below I’ve shared “Burning”, which is my favorite song of theirs. Enjoy.

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.
