[music video]: Tweedy – Summer Noon

By Will Oliver, July 22nd 2014

Tweedy

Tweedy is the wonderful duo of Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, and his son Spencer. They’re debut album is titled Sukierae, and it comes out on September 16 via Wilco’s label, dBpm Records.

We already got to hear the album’s first single “I’ll Sing It,” and they’ve since followed it up with a music video for another wonderful track by the name of “Summer Noon.”

It’s a bright shimmering track that is perfect for a relaxing summer day. The video, directed by Allison House, can be found below.

Wild Beasts at Pier 84 (July 10, 2014)

By Will Oliver, July 13th 2014

On Thursday night Wild Beasts played a free show at Pier 84 for the first of Hudson River Park’s River Rocks free concert series. The weather was as perfect as one could hope for for an outdoor show, setting the tone for a wonderful night of music.

Considering it was a free show, getting an opening set from Mutual Benefit in addition to Wild Beasts was a treat. Their gentle orchestrated blend of folk-rock was ideal for the setting of Pier 84, with the winds of the Hudson River keeping us cool. Mutual Benefit’s brainchild Jordan Lee always delivers witty dry-humor that can get lost on unsuspecting members of the crowd, but for those who have seen the band before, we are used to his sense of humor by now. Even so, the music comes first, and getting to hear elegant tracks such as “Golden Wake” and “Advanced Falconry” just as the sun started to set was more than ideal.

As of right now, I’m hard pressed to name anything other than Wild Beasts latest album Present Tense as my favorite record of 2014 so far. It just has everything going for it. From start to finish, there isn’t a weak track. Every listen brings a new discovery, a new sound or detail that was previously lost on me. Their show at Music Hall of Williamsburg earlier in the year was just when the album was released. This time around I was much more familiar with the material, and ready to take it in completely.

Watch Real Estate’s La Blogothèque Session

By Will Oliver, July 9th 2014

Real Estate

A few weeks back La Blogothèque posted the session they did with Real Estate in Paris. It all went down in a living room, where the band (just Martin, Matt and Alex) did an acoustic set that featured their usual material, plus a few treats. They played unreleased track “White Light” as well as a fun cover of Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.”

It’s a great session. Enjoy it below.

Foo Fighters at Firefly Music Festival 2014

Foo Fighters will release their long-awaited new album later this year. Their set at Firefly didn’t feature any news songs, but that’s alright. Foo Fighters have a storied career full of songs that made up for the lack of new material shared – plus some surprises as well. Firefly did well by scheduling no one else around the Foo’s, giving everyone who wanted to see them the rightful chance.

The last (and only other) time I saw the Foo Fighters was at MSG back in 2008, and as far as I can recall, they came out with just as much fire and passion as that show. Dave Grohl was eager to please the Delaware crowd, bringing up the lovely memories he had of past visits, recalling the smell of Delaware food spot, Grotto Pizza. Guitarist Chris Shiflett played sitting down as he is healing a broken ankle, but even so the band came out fighting, opening incredibly with “Times Like These.”

[music video]: Hundred Waters – Murmurs

Hundred Waters - Murmurs - Music Video

Hundred Waters released a powerful music video for “Murmurs”, a lovely offering from their newly released album Moon Rang Like a Bell.

The video, which was directed by Bangs features numerous construction works that came to a house that lead singer Nicole Miglis is in. It’s sharply directed, and certinly has a meaning to be taken away from it.

Find it posted below.

Beirut at 50 Kent (June 14, 2014)

It’s been three years since Beirut released The Rip Tide, and a year since their last show in New York City, which took place last year at Governors Ball. We can only hope that a new album is around the corner, but there’s no official word. The fact that they performed a few weeks ago at the new Brooklyn outdoor concert space 50 Kent is an encouraging sign either way. The show took place on June 14 as a part of the Northside Festival.

[music video]: Arctic Monkeys – Snap Out Of It

Arctic Monkeys - Snap Out Of It - Music Video

Arctic Monkeys latest music video is for current AM single “Snap Out Of It.” As usual, it’s directed by Focus Creeps, and features one of the bands more interesting (and experimental) concepts to date.

In it, we see a girl hanging by the pool, cooking some food, as well as some studio footage of the guys in the studio. Soon her world gets mixed in with Arctic Monkeys, causing some interesting results. The girl is played by Stephanie Sigman, and all the studio footage is pretty damn awesome.

Catch the video below, and stay tuned for my coverage of their show at Firefly over the weekend.
