Preview: White Lung at Baby’s All Right

By Will Oliver, May 5th 2016

White Lung

This Saturday night Vancouver punk-rockers White Lung will return to New York for a sold out performance at Baby’s All Right. It’s a release show of sorts for their new album Paradise, which comes out tomorrow via Domino Records.

The new record has a more polished and bigger sound in many ways, a little shinier around the edges but still hits every bit as hard as you’d expect from them. Their live show is always a wonderful ball of hectic energy, and I expect the show at Baby’s to be a glorious sweaty mess. Local group Wives will open the show up.

[new]: Local Natives – “Past Lives”

By Will Oliver, April 29th 2016

Local Natives

It’s been three years since we last heard new music from Local Natives, but today that changed with the surprise release of a brand new song named “Past Lives.” The band premiered it last night at a surprise show in Los Angeles, and today they released a stream to the rest of the world.

“Past Lives” features some of those ever-familiar and delightful vocals, keeping that familiar sound while also taking a big leap forward in terms of scope and incorporation of some new elements that create a much bigger sound. This song will satisfy all of the bands fans, delivering big harmonies and percussion, all under one big shiny package.

We can only assume that “Past Lives” will be included on their eventual third album, which hopefully will be released sometime this year. For now, “Past Lives’ will certainly hold us over.

Enjoy it below along with a message that Local Natives’ Taylor Rice provided along with the song:

Totemic – “Falling”

By Will Oliver, April 21st 2016

Totemic

Toronto electronic artist Totemic is gearing up to release his brand new EP Falling, set to take his epic electronic dance ideas to a brand new audience.

Based on first single “Falling,” he seems to be doing something faithful to the genre, also with some of his own unique spins and flourishes. It starts off with an almost Basement Jaxx like start, soon diving into some futuristic tribal rhythms along with some well-minded piano and shuffling dance beats. Electronic music can be very hit or miss with me, but Totemic finds a nice balance that works.

Stream “Falling” below.

Acid Dad

New York psych-rockers Acid Dad will stop in to Le Poisson Rouge next Thursday, April 28, headlining the venues “On The Rise at LPR” series. The night will also feature performances from Ron Gallo, The Yin Yangs, and Winstons.

The LPR stop is the final performance their tour in support of their debut EP Let’s Plan A Robbery, which was released in February via Knife Tapes.

Although the band hasn’t even been together for two years, they’re one of the hardest working bands in New York, literally. They’ve created a loyal and passionate following the right way, and their EP and live shows speak for this.

You can stream the entire EP below, and buy tickets for their performance at LPR right here.

Preview: Iggy Pop at The Capitol Theatre

By Will Oliver, April 11th 2016

Iggy Pop

This Thursday Iggy Pop will return for a rather intimate showing at one of the best venues in the New York City area, The Capitol Theatre.

This tour comes in support of his new album Post Pop Depression (released via Loma Vista Recordings), and features the mind-blowing lineup of Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age), Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys), and and Dean Fertita (of The Dead Weather) as Iggy’s band.

The shows featuring this amazing dream-team line-up are very limited and will only go down during this tour. There aren’t many tour dates across the U.S. this year, especially at a place as intimate as The Capitol Theatre, making it a must see for any fans in the Port Chester/New York City area.

Tickets for the show are currently on sale, but don’t sleep on it to long, they’re bound to be sold out once Thursday hits.

The Go! Team at Brooklyn Bowl (January 21, 2016)

On January 21, the multi-genre collective from Brighton, England The Go! Team made their live return to New York with a performance at Brooklyn Bowl. The show came in support of their 2015 release The Scene Between, released via Memphis Industries.

The beauty of The Go! Team is their ability to combine practically every genre in the game and create a sound best described simply as joyous. During live performances, the group takes turns on vocals or leading the performance centerstage, allowing everyone to take a turn to shine, just like the various of genres and sounds that shine a little bit more than others on certain tracks.

Seeing them perform live is as positive of an experience as one could hope to get out of a live performance, one that still has me smiling when thinking back to it.

Find some photos from the performance posted below.

Interview: The Last Shadow Puppets

By Will Oliver, April 6th 2016

The Last Shadow Puppets Interview

There was a point in time where I started to wonder if The Last Shadow Puppets would ever return. The duo of Alex Turner and Miles Kane had been gone for eight years, understandably busy with their other projects. Thankfully, this year the stars aligned and the duo are back with their long-awaited sophomore album Everything You’ve Come To Expect, which was released last Friday via Domino Records.

A few months ago on a cold day in early February, I headed to the Ace Hotel to meet up with Alex and Miles, to chat over some fine cups of tea and talk about stepping back into the spotlight, the new album, how they work together as a duo, and what what exactly fans can expect this time around. I even brought up the James Bond comparisons, and what exactly it would take for them to pen the next Bond song.

Enjoy the full interview, which is posted below.
