Twin Peaks

This week young Chicago rockers Twin Peaks released their sophomore album Wild Onion this week via Grand Jury Music. It’s a rock-sold album, one that you should be spinning right about now.

Next Wednesday night they bring the fun to New York City for a show at Mercury Lounge (with support from fellow Chicago natives The Lemons). Tickets are still available for the show (for now). Don’t miss this intimate showing at what is guaranteed to be a wild good time.

Below, check out the band’s newly released video for Wild Onion track “I Found A New Way.”  Read the rest of this entry »

[music video]: The Drums – Magic Mountain

By Will Oliver, August 4th 2014

The Drums - Magic Mountain - Music Vide

The Drums music video for current single “Magic Mountain” shows the band (now duo) having an enjoyable evening in the woods, showing some pyro-tendencies. There’s also an odd dedication to the late Elizabeth Taylor towards the end.

The video was directed by The Drums themselves, and shot by Gorjan Lauseger. “Magic Mountain” is off the band’s upcoming album Encyclopedia, due out on Minor Records on September 24.

Interpol – All The Rage Back Home

By Will Oliver, July 26th 2014 — with 1 comment

Interpol

Interpol’s new album El Pintor will be released on September 9, and first single “All The Rage” got the full Interpol treatment, shot in black and white. Makes sense that singer/frontman Paul Banks co-directed the video with Sophia Peer.

I heard Interpol play the song at Governors Ball and was pretty satisfied with how it turned out. The recorded version lives up to that promise, and then some. It honestly may be one of my favorite Interpol songs of the new era.

Check out the “All The Rage Back Home” video below. I’ve also shared their upcoming U.S. dates for this fall, which includes two nights at Terminal 5 with Hundred Waters.

[music video]: Harriet – Ten Steps

Harriet - Ten Steps

L.A. outfit Harriet have a new album on the way that is awesomely titled It’s Totally Cool I Wouldn’t Even Worry About It. They already shared the video for first single “Burbank”, and they’ve since followed that up with a video for new single “Ten Steps.”

The video has to be one of the best of the year to date. It features all kinds of choreographed dancing and some brilliant cinematography that begs other bands to step up their music video game up. Oh, it also helps that the song is killer good. It explores a very dance-funk area that just keeps grooving along with some perfectly placed vocals from Alex Casnoff. It’s super smooth and easy on the ears.

Enjoy the video below. I’ve also shared a mp3 of the song, which was made available on their soundcloud page.

[music video]: Tweedy – Summer Noon

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

By Will Oliver, July 7th 2014 — with 1 comment

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.”
