Hamilton Leithauser

Hamilton Leithauser’s debut solo album Black Hours will now come out on June 3 instead of it’s original release date, May 6 (via Ribbon Music). It’s available to pre-order now, with a deluxe edition as an option.

Leithauser has followed up first single “Alexandra” with “11 O’Clock Friday Night.” There’s a strong familiarity to his work with The Walkmen here with a tropical twist, xylophone and all. It also features some light vocals (very light) from Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman. It’s a winner, another solid sign of things to come from the rest of Black Hours.

It’s available to stream  below. I’ve also shared the official music video, which was directed by The Walkmen’s guitarist Paul Maroon.

Cloud Nothings

If you’re not jamming out to Cloud Nothings new album Here and Nowhere Else (especially with this nice weather), you’re truly missing out. It hits hard as hell, and is yet another step forward for the band. They’ve released a music video for “I’m Not A Part Of Me”, the amazing album closer. In it is a slumber party that goes a bit over the edge with a Cloud Nothings twist.

It was directed by John Ryan Manning and can be found below.

Watch: Future Islands -Time For The Show

By Will Oliver, April 3rd 2014

Future Islands

The rise of Future Islands has without a doubt been one of the best stories of 2014. It’s been amazing to see the amount of success that their new album Singles has brought them.

Yours Truly captured the band right before it all went down in their latest “Time For The Show” series. They followed the band as they traveled from NYC to Baltimore for a homecoming show at a tiny Baltimore venue known as the Floristree. Director Tyler McPherron captured the drive there where the band talked about their music, Baltimore, playing live, and what success means to them. All this was mixed in with the band’s performances of “Seasons (Waiting on You)” and “A Dream of You and Me” from the show.

It’s a must watch. Find it posted below.

[music video]: Liars – Mess On A Mission

By Will Oliver, April 2nd 2014

Liars - Mess On A Mission

Liars collaborated with director Luis Cervéroand Urban Outfitters on their video for “Mess On A Mission.” It’s a simple – but cool – concept, featuring the band walking back worried and frightened in a green screen. This allows the band to be placed in a whole bunch of crazy situations, making their reactions work every time.

The band shot in in L.A. over the course of 12 hours with Luis’ capturing the band members movements from four different angles. It’s a crazy watch, absolutely hypnotic. Find it posted below.

The Antlers Announce New Album ‘Familiars’ | Listen To “Palace”

By Will Oliver, April 2nd 2014 — with 1 comment

The Antlers

It’s been three years since Burst Apart, the last full-length from The Antlers. Sure, we got two EP’s ([together] and Undersea) but it’s been too long since we got a full album full of their heartbreaking beauty. We’re in luck, as they have announced that their new album Familiars is out June 17 via Anti-.

Familiars was recorded, engineered and produced by the band in their Brooklyn studio. Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Beach House) mixed he album at DNA Downtown Studios.

The band has released the video for first cut “Palace” and as you expect, it’s a heart-breaker. What starts with light piano cords and a lonely horn turns into a devastating piece from frontman Peter Silberman. A heartfelt confession that lays it all out on the table.

Stream it below via the music video, which was directed by Hana Tajima. I’ve also included the tracklisting for Familiars which is posted after “Palace.”

I was bummed to find Julian Casablancas and The Voidz SXSW performance to be lackluster. I am still holding out hope that the recorded form will be better and maybe the band just has to get some more shows under their belt.

Last night the band released a video where they shed some light on the album as well as who exactly the bandmembers are in interview style. It’s an interesting watch, to say the least.

Find the video posted below.

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Simple and Sure

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart have released their video for “Simple and Sure” the lead single off their upcoming LP Days of Abandon. The video is a creative one as it is basically a bunch of GIF’s combined to make one insane clip.

The video, directed by Bangs, is shot and black and white showing various guests at a dinner party that they can’t leave (influenced by The Exterminating Angel?)

Nylon premiered the video and got this quote from the band’s frontman Kip Berman about the video:

I’m taken aback at how many online outlets now reduce their content to a series of GIFs, assuming a minute long video or a single paragraph of text to be too burdensome. We’re as much prisoners of our need for constant distraction and instant sensation as the trapped guests at the dinner party.

Enjoy the video posted below.

Oscar Mix || Damaged Goods Club

By Will Oliver, March 25th 2014 — with 1 comment


Oscar, the young lad who released one of my favorite songs last year, has shared with us a cool mix featuring some unheard demos mixed in with some tracks that he’s been digging. Check it out below:

With that said, Oscar has also started his own club known as Damaged Goods, where he is going to be sharing some of his favorite new british guitar music through live sets. He will be playing, along with Witching Waves and Fake Laugh. I obviously can’t be there, but if any of you guys are reading from the UK, you should head out there. It’s free.

The first one is set to take part tomorrow night. Here’s the facebook event page. Find the trailer below.

[new]: The Orwells – Let It Burn

By Will Oliver, March 25th 2014

The Orwells - Discraceland

The Orwells will release new album Disgraceland on June 3 via Canvasback/Atlantic Records.

To celebrate the announcement, the young Chiacago rockers have let loose of the video for “Let It Burn”, a great youthful anthem featured on the album. The video features some footage of their recent tour in the UK. I have yet to see these guys live but the video does a good job of making you feel like you’re there.
