Spoon at Le Poisson Rogue (June 9, 2014)

By Will Oliver, June 24th 2014

On June 9 Spoon played a intimate show at Le Poisson Rogue that and followed up their set at Governors Ball only a few days before. The show was hosted by NPR Music and was actually an early matinee show that took place at 2 p.m and was RSVP only – which understandably sold out immediately. The time preventing the room from being as packed as it should of been, making it all the more intimate.

The 11-song set was more or less a trimmed version of their Gov Ball set, with the addition of Girls Can Tell’s “Anything You Want.” along with the premiere performance of new single “Rent I Pay” which was then broadcasted online by NPR (the video is posted below). It’s off the band’s upcoming new album They Want My Soul, which will come out on August 5 via Loma Vista.

The performance might have been even sharper than Governors Ball, especially with the premiere of “Rent I Pay”, which sounded terrific along with other new songs “Rainy Taxi” and “Knock Knock Knock.” The addition of Alex Fischel does a lot for them live, as he brings a tremendous amount of energy and can seemingly do it all, whether its rock out on the guitar, add some vocals, or hammer out the keys.

Find the “Rent I Pay” video below, along with the show’s setlist.

Ty Segall Announces New Album: ‘Manipulator’

By Will Oliver, June 24th 2014

Ty Segall - Manipulator

The man, the legend, Mr. Ty Segall will return with a new album titled Manipulator. In fact, it’s a giant album loaded with 17 songs. This will be Ty’s sixth album in the last four years, which is absolutely insane considering how consistently solid all the albums are. It will be released via Drag City on August 26.

Here’s the epic description that graced the press release I received:

To see these peeps, to realize their dreams and visions, Ty kept working, kept writing, laying down more tracks than ever. New musical expressions pop and surprise relentlessly throughout all the knockout tunes of Manipulator which feature Ty’s helium-cooled vocals, sounding more powerful and dynamic than ever, and many sounds in the mix, but most of all, SO many guitars! Strangled-neck solos recalling the good old days down by the river with Neil, numbed-and-unplugged discursions, three-quarter quartets raising their din in a few key places, waves of sparkling acoustics with ominous, Love-ly undertones – and then, torrents of filthy git-grunge, exploding into the chorus, washing everything away, fusing the blackness of Sabbath with the grime and grab-ass of the Stooges and the sweet swinging tones of the Stones. All in the name of getting higher on the music. Why have one guitar solo when you can have a few in the same space? There’s so little time, and a LOT to say.

You can get an early taste of what the album has to offer via the 3-minute long epic video teaser that features various song clips. You can find that posted below, along with the album’s tracklist.

Eric Frisch

Earlier in the year New York City singer-songwriter Eric Frisch released his debut (self-produced) full-length entitled Goodbye Birdcage. Eric’s sound combines elements of 50s and 60s pop music with a modern touch, creating a unique call to the past while still pushing forward into unchartered territory.

He’s released a music video for one of the album highlights “Learn To Swim” The video, which was directed by Stephen Tonti features a reflective Frisch playing the song alone in a studio, offering various clips of him playing the song. It’s a simple, yet effective approach to the lovely folk song that has a familiarity about it that makes it feel like a classic song that you always knew was there, but just needed a friendly reminder.

We have the exclusive premiere of the video, which you can watch below.

Washed Out at Governors Ball 2014

By Will Oliver, June 10th 2014 — with 1 comment

Summer festivals are actually the perfect setting for an artist like Washed Out. Originally billed as a “chillwave” genre artist, the good vibes of a warm summer festival are more than fitting for Ernest Greene and his band.

I last saw them perform during the cold winters months at MHOW (when Ernest had long hair), and it was a great performance from the band. However, there was just something about seeing them perform outside at Governors Ball (even if under a tent) that made the show that much better. Greene’s vocals were off at first, but his band picked him up until he was able to get back on track. The set choices were perfection from “Feel It All Around”, “Amor Fati”, “New Theory” and the uplifting “All I Know.” It was a wonderful mid-afternoon set that Washed Out was built for.

Below, check out some more photos, along with the new video for “Weightless.” Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

Morrissey - World Peace Is None Of Your Business

Morrissey
is set to release his new album World Peace Is None of Your Business on June 15 via Harvest/Capitol. So far he’s already let us hear two singles from the album “Instanbul” & the title track, “World Peace is None of Your Business.”

Now he’s let go of a third track, called “Earth Is The Loneliest Planet. It has a upbeat nature to it, to go over some fairly familar vocals from Morrissey. WWhen you’re Morrissey, I’m sure you mean it when you say “Earth Is the Loneliest Planet.”

Stream the track below. I’ve also shared the spoken word video of the video, which features fellow PETA member Pamela Anderson.

Parquet Courts - Black And White - Music Video

It’s only appropriate that Parquet Courts have released a black and white video for “Black and White” the stunning punk-anthem off their new album Sunbathing Animal, which was released today via What’s Your Rupture?/Mom + Pop.

The video was co-directed by the band’s Austin Brown along with Johann Rashid. It was shot in Bed Stuy, home of frontman Andrew Savage. The video was inspired by the experimental films of William Burroughs and Brion Gysin and meant to “represent the depth and complexity of the personal stories which exist in a simple city stroll.”

Watch it below.
