Latimer House – Birdcage Walk

By Will Oliver, July 23rd 2014 Listen New Stream

Latimer House - Birdcage Walk
I first shared the sounds of Prague-based band Latimer House back in March. Their debut single “This Is Pop” won me over with devilish charm and clear cut melodies.

The group has since returned with a new single called “Birdcage Walk” and its as equally enjoyable as “This Is Pop.” They make finding a feel-good groove seem easy, with pop elements that work into your head like pure earworms.

Enjoy “Birdcage Walk” below.

Clocks and Clouds – Aliantha

By Will Oliver, July 23rd 2014 Listen Stream

Clocks & Clouds

Minneapolis 3-piece group Clocks & Clouds explore a world where classical music intertwines with electronic music on their track “Aliantha.”

The track starts out with a haunting string section, but soon works in a world of electronic flourishes and bass throbs. Things tread a bit too closely to dub-step for me at times, but it’s an interesting combination to say the least.

It was released as a single on July 15, and can be found below.

Death From Above 1979

It’s still hard to believe that we are actually getting a new album from Death From Above 1979, a totally “pinch me”, “is this really happening” sort of moment. Well, the new album The Physical World is on its way, with a release day set for September 9 (via Last Gang Records/Warner Bros). The band are currently offering exclusive bundle pre-orders, as well as on good old iTunes.

Our first taste of the album comes in the form of first single “Trainwreck 1979″ and its exactly what the doctor ordered. It’s a bit of a different sound from the band, but hey, it’s been a decade. “Trainwreck 1979″ is more pop-infused with a catchy chorus and back-up ooh and aahs. It still hits as hard as any DFA1979 song should.

Damn, it’s good to have these guys back! Stream “Trainwreck 1979″ below.

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.

Alt-J – Left Hand Free

By Will Oliver, July 22nd 2014 Listen New Stream

Alt-J

Alt-J’s sophomore album This Is All Yours will be released on September 23 via Canvasback Music. We already heard the Miley Cyrus sampling “Hunger Of The Pine”, which served as our first preview of the album.

The band followed that up with the album’s first official single, a track called “Left Hand Free.” The song is nothing like the band has done to date. It’s apparently a song that the band wrote with the goal of making the “the least Alt-J song ever”, working on a “joke riff” giving it a straight run through. The rest is a sort of 90s Beck sounding track. When you learn that “Left Hand Free” is a song that the song that the band wrote after their label questioned “Hunger Of The Pine” serving as a single, it starts to make sense.

It takes a few listens to really sink into what the band are doing, but once it clicks, it makes a lot more sense. One thing is for sure, This Is All Yours will be one of the more diverse and unpredictable albums of 2014.

The Full Moon Fest returns to Governor’s Island on August 8 for the fourth installation of the dance beach-themed mini-festival, which takes its inspiration from the full moon parties of Thailand, set beneath an August full moon.

This year the festival sports a lineup that includes Delorean, The Knocks, Son Lux, Le Youth, The Aston Shuffle, Penguin Prison, Wave Racer, Young & Sick, Chela, Emefe, and JDH & Dave P.

Tickets are still available for the fest, and at a limited bargain price of $50. Not bad at all, considering how many acts you would get to see. Don’t wait too long, as the next pricing is set at $125 (but it’s VIP).

Below check out two mixes from the festival, cleverly titled “The Waxing Moon” and “The Crescent Moon”: Read the rest of this entry »

Interview: Peter Matthew Bauer (Of The Walkmen)

With The Walkmen on indefinite hiatus, it has given its members new freedom to venture out on their own. Such as member Peter Matthew Bauer, who released his debut album Liberation! on Mexican Summer last month. I’ve seen Bauer’s live show now, and can confirm that he’s made the full transition into a solo musician.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to speak with Bauer over the phone, where we talked about life as a solo musician, the influence behind his album, and if he would ever consider getting the band back together.

Find our full discussion posted below.

Pink Floyd

It’s been 20 years since Pink Floyd released their last album, The Division Bell. The band will finally break that spell, with a new album called The Endless River, which will be released this October.

The band posted the following message on their website:

Pink Floyd can confirm that they are releasing a new album, The Endless River, in October 2014. It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer.

As you can tell from that, the album won’t include former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters. This is exciting news for Pink Floyd fans, who have waited two decades for this moment.
