The Tins

On July 29 Buffalo three-piece The Tins will release their new EP Young Blame.

I already shared the EP’s first single “They Aren’t Evil” and since I am seeing the band play later tonight, I thought it was an appropriate time to share “Let It Go”, the EP’s second single. It’s another solid offering from the band, who sound as strong and assured as ever. It’s been amazing to see these guys develop over the years, and “Let It Go” is just one bit of proof that these guys should be much bigger than they are.

You can help with that. You can pre-order the EP right now at their bandcamp page and come out to their show in Brooklyn tonight at The Rock Shop. Tickets will be sold at the door.

In the meantime, enjoy “Let It Go” below.

Foxes In Fiction

Foxes In Fiction is the project of Toronto-native Warren Hildebrand. He’s gearing up for the release of his sophomore Ontario Gothic, which will be released via his own label Orchid Tapes on September 23.

In 2011, Hildebrand started work on the album in his Toronto apartment, writing and recording and album looking back on the past five years living in Toronto. The theme of loss played a crucial role in the album, with the passing of his brother Drew in 2008.

Owen Pallet contributes string arrangements throughout the new album, such as on the grand and sweeping gem that is the album’s first single, “Shadow’s Song.” It’s a mesmerizing song that is dreamy and meloncholic in all the right ways. Pallet’s contributions have a huge impact on the song, which wouldn’t feel the same without them.

Enjoy it below.

Ryan Adams – Gimme Something Good

Ryan Adams - Gimme Something Good

On September 9 Ryan Adams will release his new self-titled album via his label Pax-A. He’s already released the album’s first single, “Gimme Something Good.”

It’s a rollicking bit of americana-inspired rock and roll with plenty of soul and grit to go along with it. This track could have come out in the 80s, and I mean that in the best way possible.

Alex and Miles

So I’m playing a bit of catch-up here, so no need to roll your eyes and tell me this is old news. I’m sure at least one or two of you somehow missed this bit of news over the last few weeks. So this is for you.

Apparently the always loveable Alex Turner and Miles Kane, who you know as The Last Shadow Puppets, have their sights set on Hollywood. According to Digital Spy, the duo are reportedly always talking about getting the group back together for another album, but they also have plans for the movie business.

In an interview, Kane told Digital Spy that the film has “a sort of X-Men kind of vibe and sort of set in the ’60s,” but that was all that he would give away. They don’t plan on starring in the film themselves, other than a cameo.

Part of me is skeptical about it actually happening, but if it does, we can only imagine the results. Plus, it would pretty much guarantee that they would soundtrack the score themselves, so if it means new music from The Last Shadow Puppets, sign me up.

Spoon – Do You

Spoon - Do You

Spoon will release new album They Want My Soul on August 5 via Loma Vista. Last month we heard first single “Rent I Pay” and the band has since followed that up with the second single, “Do You.”

There’s a cool and breezy nature to the song that is very much Spoon. It has a chill summertime groove to it that is a perfect listen whether your speeding down the highway or hanging back relaxing on a hot summer day. The band sound as confident and assured as ever here.

I can’t wait to get my hands on They Want My Soul. Enjoy “Do You” below.

Bon Iver

Although Bon Iver are taking a break from performing, they have released a new song called “Heavenly Father” that appears on the soundtrack of Zach Braff’s new film, Wish I Was Here. The film was released today, but the song itself has been out for a little bit.

Any new music from Bon Iver is always a treat, and “Heavenly Father” is no different. It’s a magic journey that features all the emotional qualities that you’ve come to expect from the wizard that is Justin Vernon.

With …Like Clockwork, Queens Of The Stone Age released one of the best albums of 2013. They are still touring hard in support of the album, bringing their tour to Port Chester this Wednesday to play a sold out show at the historic Capitol Theatre. It is always a beautiful place to see a show, and a rather intimate place to catch an act like Queens Of The Stone Age, one of the biggest bands in rock and roll. Australian artist Brody Dalle opened the show, and is known better for her work with The Distillers and Spinnerette.

If there’s anything I’ve learned over the years, you don’t mess with Josh Homme. That means doing right by him if you choose to partake as an audience member in his crowd. Not like the fan in the front row who was holding up an iPad right in front of Homme, who couldn’t help but take notice, and comment. “You’ve got to be kidding with that thing man.” he told the audience member, urging him to put it away and just be present in the show. Honestly, about damn time someone called an iPad holder out on that. There’s simply no need for that at a show. This brutal honestly is what I love about Homme. During the show he spilled some honest truths by telling the crowd “Fuck the set list. I just wanna have a good time. This isn’t work. This is getting drunk and having fun.” With an attitude like that, it makes sense that the guy is one of the brightest minds to grace rock and roll in the last decade or so.

As expected, the setlist was heavy on …Like Clockwork material. But they still gave plenty of room to their many greatest hits of sorts, such as “No One Knows”, “Go With The Flow”, and “Little Sister.” They also kept it interesting with choice cuts such as “Turnin’ on the Screw”, “Better Living Through Chemistry” and “The Fun Machine Took a Shit and Died”, which Josh dedicated to the late Tommy Ramone.

Over the past year I have seen the band three times. Prior to that first performance of the three, I had never seen the band live. Each performance has been as solid as the last, if not an improvement. There’s no question that they’re one of my favorite rock bands, but also one of the best that we have going at the moment.

Setlist:

1. You Think I Ain’t Worth a Dollar, but I Feel Like a Millionaire
2. No One Knows
3. Avon
4. My God Is the Sun
5. Smooth Sailing
6. I’m Designer
7. I Sat by the Ocean
8. The Vampyre of Time and Memory
9. If I Had a Tail
10. Turnin’ on the Screw
11. Little Sister
12. The Fun Machine Took a Shit and Died
13. In My Head
14. Fairweather Friends
15. Sick, Sick, Sick
16. The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret
17. Better Living Through Chemistry
18. Go With the Flow

Encore:
19. Keep Your Eyes Peeled
20. Feel Good Hit of the Summer
21. A Song for the Dead

Karen O - Crush Songs

Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O has finally announced her first solo album. It’s titled Crush Songs and it’s coming out on September 9 via Julian Casablancas’ label Cult Records. The solo album feels overdue, after various guest contributions and soundtrack appearances over the last few years (such as the lovely Moon Song for last year’s fantastic film Her).

The album was actually recorded back in 2006 and 2007, described as an intimate lo-fi bedroom recordings, similar to the style of “The Moon Song.” O describes the album in a letter that she posted on her site. Find that below.

We’ll have more on the album shortly. I’m very excited to hear it.

I’ve been trying to see Camera Obscura live as far back as I can remember. Tuesday night’s sold out performance at Le Poisson Rouge finally ended the seemingly everlasting draught, as I finally got to see the Glasgow band live in the flesh.

Speaking to fans in the crowd, it seemed like a lot of other people were there after years of trying to see the band. One girl I spoke to asked me if I too was there in order to fill the duty of my high school self. While that wasn’t quite it, a case could be made that a lot of people went into the show with a heavy sense of nostalgia. The band were playing to support their very solid (if not somewhat underrated) new album Desire Lines, which came out just last year and only saw them play in support of She and Him. So this was technically their first proper headlining show for Desire Lines, with its tracks dominating the set.

Camera Obscura are veterans to the game at this point in the career, and it shows live. The band are very capable players, laying down tight performance of theirs tracks, sounding polished and seasoned along the way. Although Desire Lines related material was the main focus, they played plenty of older tracks. A highlight of the night being the 1-2 punch of “If Looks Could Kill” and “Lloyd, I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken”, which had everyone in the crowd singing along. Man it felt good to finally get to hear those tracks live.

After waiting all these years to finally see these guys, I can say it was totally worth the wait.

This week Brooklyn-based electronic group Little Daylight released their debut album Hello Memory. On Tuesday they celebrated its release with a record release show at Mercury Lounge. The album’s summer release is pitch perfect, as its as enjoyable of a pop record as you’ll find. The band smartly pack on the hooks in a no frills, no shame sort of way. There are a lot of other bands doing the whole electronic pop thing, but not all of them play live instruments, and play with as much of a joyful confidence as I saw from Little Daylight.
