Phox at Music Hall of Williamsburg (February 15, 2015)

By Will Oliver, February 16th 2015 — with 1 comment


2014 saw Wisconsin group Phox release their delightful (self-titled) debut album (which made our honorable mentions for albums of the year) and tour throughout the country opening for acts like The Head and The Heart, Paolo Nutini, as well as a headlining tour of their own. Things are just getting started for the band, who have embarked on yet another tour, with many major festival dates already lined up.

By Dana Pacifico, December 30th 2014

New Build is the side-project of Hot Chip members Felix Martin and Al Doyle, as well as engineer Tom Hopkins. With the release of new album Pour It On earlier in the year, the electronic group returned to the states for a mini U.S. tour in early December.

The band rolled in to New York on December 3 to play Mercury Lounge, which we covered with a set of photos. But before the show, I met up with Felix Martin to talk about the new record, members roles within the group, and the difference of releasing their music on a label, as opposed to self-releasing.

Allah-Las – No Werewolf

By Will Oliver, August 19th 2014


Allah-Las will play out our summer out with new album Worship The Sun which comes out on September 9 via Innovative Leisure.

If you haven’t already, check out the simple but dazzling video for album track “No Werewolf.” It doesn’t seem like much at first, but you won’t be able to look away from the art that Mikhail Sadovnikov has created. The track itself is a sunny instrumental that would be perfect for a long walk on a beach.

Milagres - Bowery

This Thursday Brooklyn’s Milagres headline Bowery Ballroom to celebrate the release of their new album Violent Light. The album came out earlier in the year but this is their homecoming show, a delayed celebration of sorts.

They will be joined by the equally excellent Conveyor, as well as Leisure Cruise. Tickets are still on sale, but we got a pair to give away to one of you guys.

To enter, simply leave a comment below. I’ll pick one at random and they will be notified asap. Good luck!

[new]: Allah-Las – Every Girl

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2013 — with 1 comment


Allah-Las are not a live show to be missed. I caught them twice in one day at SXSW, and was blown away by how effortlessly cool and tight they were live.

They’re still touring, and will stop by NYC on September 26 to play an early and late show at the Mercury Lounge. They will be selling a limited, tour-only 7″ vinyl (you can also buy it online, right here) featuring two previously unreleased songs, probably taken from their debut album’s recording sessions.

One of them is called “Every Girl.” It’s another 60s-inspired rock jam that will get in your head instantly. It just grooves along, hard, and well. These guys are just float out cool. Grab a free download below.

Allah Las – Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind)

By Will Oliver, November 19th 2012 — with 1 comment

Been digging on “Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind)” from the L.A. record mavens Allah Las’ self titled debut LP. It’s a straight to the point pop-rock gem that hits a psychedelic note. You could get away with telling a new listener that these guys are a band from the 60s. Definitely hearing a Rolling Stones influence.

The album is out now via Innovative Leisure.

[new]: Nosaj Thing – Eclipse/Blue (Feat. Kazu Makino)

By Will Oliver, September 20th 2012

Nosaj Thing marks his return with “Eclipse/Blue” an ethereal night-time track that features guest vocals from Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino. The combination of his beats and her vocals create a feeling of being lost & isolated at sea,  left only to fumble with your cold breath and your thoughts.

It’s been three years since his debut album Drift, and now it’s time for his new album, Home. It will be released sometime early in 2013 via Innovative Leisure. The album will also see guest work from Toro y Moi. Turntable will release a 10″ vinyl of the single next month. You can pre-order that here.

Aesop Rock Announces New Album Skelethon

By Will Oliver, March 27th 2012

Aesop Rock hasn’t released a new album in 5 years, since 2007’s None Shall Pass. That changes when he releases new album Skelethon on July 10 via Rhymesayers.

It’s the sixth studio album from the San Francisco-based rapper/producer. It’s the first album that he self-produced. A press release from Rhymesayers says the album “follows in the wake of several deep personal losses and highlights subject matter that deals with the sometimes-futile ways people try to cope with serious issues.”

Find the tracklisting for Skelethon below.

We All Want Someone To Shout For’s September 2011 Mix

By Will Oliver, October 2nd 2011 — with 4 comments

So I’m finally 21. I turned 21 on September 30th, which explains why this month’s mix is somewhat delayed. The wonderful Camilo Bejarano (the genius behind all these fantastic mixes) and I, decided to have fun with it’s art. Sure me turning 21 doesn’t affect you personally, but it may make this blog a little more interesting. I can now drink at ease, and enter any show that I want without any concern. Not like it stopped me anyway, but you get what I’m trying to say. Who knows maybe I can throw in some drunk(ish) posts for you all.

Anyway, here’s to September which was surely an interesting month. The mix is posted after the jump. You know the deal. Stream each song, or just download the entire thing as a beautiful package with the correct tracklisting, and artwork. And remember to check out Camilo’s work. He deserves it.
