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.

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.
