Twin Peaks

This week young Chicago rockers Twin Peaks released their sophomore album Wild Onion this week via Grand Jury Music. It’s a rock-sold album, one that you should be spinning right about now.

Next Wednesday night they bring the fun to New York City for a show at Mercury Lounge (with support from fellow Chicago natives The Lemons). Tickets are still available for the show (for now). Don’t miss this intimate showing at what is guaranteed to be a wild good time.

Below, check out the band’s newly released video for Wild Onion track “I Found A New Way.”  Read the rest of this entry »

Escape Music Festival

The Escape Music Festival will kick off its inaugural year this fall when they take over Pier 9 in Brooklyn on October 11 & 12. The festival has revealed Phase One of their lineup (taking one out of Marvel’s playbook!) featuring a lineup that includes Placebo, Yeasayer, The Crystal Method, Ra Ra Riot, STRFKR (DJ Set), Bakermat, Neon Indian (DJ Set), ASTR, Tesla Boy, Basecamo, Marc Mayha, Oscar Aguilera and Follow Me. The festival promises “30 dance music & indie/electro rock acts on two stages over two days and nights.” So there are still plenty of acts to be announced. Read the rest of this entry »

Preview: Full Moon Fest 2014

By Will Oliver, July 22nd 2014


The Full Moon Fest returns to Governor’s Island on August 8 for the fourth installation of the dance beach-themed mini-festival, which takes its inspiration from the full moon parties of Thailand, set beneath an August full moon.

This year the festival sports a lineup that includes Delorean, The Knocks, Son Lux, Le Youth, The Aston Shuffle, Penguin Prison, Wave Racer, Young & Sick, Chela, Emefe, and JDH & Dave P.

Tickets are still available for the fest, and at a limited bargain price of $50. Not bad at all, considering how many acts you would get to see. Don’t wait too long, as the next pricing is set at $125 (but it’s VIP).

Below check out two mixes from the festival, cleverly titled “The Waxing Moon” and “The Crescent Moon”: Read the rest of this entry »

Wild Beasts

I don’t know about you, but Wild Beasts’ Present Tense is one of my favorite albums of 2014 so far. Earlier in the year the band played a mesmerizing show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, which they will follow up this week with a free show at Pier 84 at Hudson River Park. That’s right, a free show. The awesome Mutual Benefit will open things up.

This band puts on the type of show that you would gladly pay to see. Now they’re at your part of town, and offer a free show? It’s a no-brainer. You guys have no excuse, I hope to see you down at Pier 84 this Thursday night.

Hundred Waters

I don’t know about you guys, but as of late one of the only albums I’ve been listening to is Hundred Waters’ new LP The Moon Rang Like A Bell. There’s honestly nothing out quite like it right now.

The band are playing an intimate show at Glasslands on Saturday night. Tickets look to be on off-sale currently, so if you slept on it, you may have to find secondary markets.

Just this March I saw the band play in Austin during SXSW, and they were nothing short of amazing. If you can find a ticket, I encourage you to get down to Glasslands on Saturday night. Mas Ysa is also opening.

Below enjoy a stream of Cavity and the video for Out Alee (Arcosanti Cut), both from The Moon Rang Like A Bell’s

Röyksopp and Robyn Announce Collaborative Mini-Album: Do It Again

By Will Oliver, April 16th 2014 — with 1 comment


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 »

Queens Of The Stone Age’s new album …Like Clockwork comes out June 4 via Matador Records. You already got to cherish first single “My God Is The Sun” by now. Now they’ve given us 1/2 of a new song. Today they have uploaded the first three-minutes of the six-minute long track “I Appear Missing.”

It’s sounding great, and the video comes paired with a pretty cool visual accompaniment. Check it out below.
