Simian Mobile Disco

This Sunday night Simian Mobile Disco bring the tour for their recently released new album Whorl to New York for an intimate showing at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

As far as electronic shows go, you don’t want to miss Simian Mobile Disco right now. After all, Whorl was recorded from a live performance at Pioneertown using two modular snyths, two sequencers, and a mixer. So getting to see them live, just like it was created, will be a special experience. The show will be my first time catching the group live. I’m very excited, to say the least.

Tickets are still on sale for now, but don’t wait until the last minute for this. And stay tuned, we may have a surprise coming for some of you.

Swans at Basilica Soundscape 2014

By Will Oliver, September 14th 2014

1_Swans_Basilica Soundscape 2014

One by one the members of Swans came out to their drawn out opening number. First it was percussionist Thor Harris who began his work on his gong, then out came drummer Phil Puleo who added his own strikes. The percussion only groove was broken up by lap steel guitar player Christoph Hahn who joined them for a few minutes until the rest of the group, led by Swans head honcho Michael Gira, joined them. This opening number went on for nearly 20-minutes, giving you a clear understanding of what exactly you can expect from a Swans live show.

Truthfully, I’m not much of a metal guy. If you frequent this blog, that won’t come as a surprise. But I’ve heard nothing but glowing praise from mostly everyone I could think of about black metal band Deafheaven, even from the sort of people who don’t normally have anything to say about metal at all. Last night I got to see the perform at Basilica Soundscape and see what all the talk was about.

Tim Hecker at Basilica Soundscape 2014

By Will Oliver, September 13th 2014

Montreal-based electronic musician Tim Hecker makes the type of brooding electronic music that was practically created to be shared in a place like the old factory Basilica Hudson where Basilica Soundscape takes place.

For those unfamiliar to Hecker, his electronic style is one of the brooding ambient/drone nature. While the earlier moments of his set were comprised of slow-stirring ambience, the set gradually built to levels of thick layered bass that literally shuck your entire body. The bass so thick that many ear-plugless fans were seen sticking there fingers in their ears.

Jessie Ware – Want Your Feeling (Live at the Barbican)

By Will Oliver, September 12th 2014

Jessie Ware - Tough Love

Jessie Ware’s new album Tough Love is sounding like it’s going to be a strong follow-up to Devotion. At least based on the strength of “Say You Love Me” and “Tough Love.”

“Want Your Feeling” is the most recent cut shared from the album, and it’s actually a collaboration that Ware did with Devonté Hynes (Blood Orange). It’s a golden pop-song with a soulful core, with the fingerprints of Hynes all over the place. Throw in production from James Ford (of Simian Mobile Disco and producer of most of Arctic Monkeys stuff) and you got quite a team credited on the track.

Check out the live video of the song that was recorded as her performance at the Barbican in London. It’s posted below.

Yesterday hotly tipped L.A.-based recording artist Banks released her debut album Goddess via Harvest Records. To celebrate the occasion, and reward fans who purchased the album, she played a short but sweet intimate set at Rough Trade NYC. The performance was one of the venues “instore” performances that rewards fans with the performance as well as a meet and greet with the artist, who will sign their album.

The War On Drugs at Boston Calling 2014

Going into Boston Calling, one of the sets that I was most excited for was from Philadelphia’s The War On Drugs. I’ve seen them before, but not on their current tour for new album Lost In The Dream, an album which is one of the year’s best for sure (get on it if you haven’t already). Based on every late night performance and live clip I’ve seen online, the group sound like they are in the best form of their career, slaying at a moments notice.
