Glass Ghost releasing 'LYFE' (stream a track), performing at Sound + Vision Fest at Lincoln Center

Brooklyn Vegan - 12 hours 24 min ago

Glass Ghost, whose lineup includes vocalist/producer Eliot Krimsky (also of Here We Go Magic and founder/drummer Mike Johnson (also of Dirty Projectors), are set to release a new album, LYFE, on September 16 via Western Vinyl. The album features contributions from Brian Betancourt of Hospitality, Joan Wasser of Joan As Police Woman, Dirty Projectors' Nat Baldwin, and ex-TEEN member Jane Herships. We've got the premiere of a new single from the album, "Sound of Money," which is a nice dose of arty pop that should appeal to fans of the other projects these guys are in. You can stream that, with the LP tracklist, below.

Glass Ghost are also performing during the Sound + Vision Festival. They play the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater on August 5. Here's what Lincoln Center's site says about the performance:Centering around the music of the band Glass Ghost, the visual component of this show is based on audience data, which is mined by LYFE™, a fictional company that identifies, analyzes, and advertises users emotions. Pre-show, participants take the MyLyfe™ survey, which asks them for a selfie, their online behavior, and drawings of a better future. During the show, as the music of Glass Ghost plays, audience members witness themselves and their data on the a screen--watched, quantified, and advertised, and then digitally disrupted as the LYFE™ software acquires an error and all data is erased and forgotten. The audience is then given a chance see their authentic selves laid out in front of them. LYFE™ is a music-video concert and audience participatory work in progress set for its world premiere in April 2015.Tickets are still available.

Joel Gion of Brian Jonestown Massacre releasing LP w/ his solo band (streams); BJM released a new album too

Brooklyn Vegan - 12 hours 34 min ago

by Bill Pearis

You may know Joel Gion as the mutton-chopped tambourine player in Brian Jonestown Massacre whose sense of humor and wry asides made him a scene-stealer in BMJ doc DiG!. (You may also know him from that one episode of Gilmore Girls.) Joel is still with the BJM but he's got a solo album, Apple Bonkers, out on August 19 via The Reverberation Appreciation Society.

If you're a Jonestown follower, you might recognize some of the people who play on the album: Matt Hollywood, Daniel Allaire, Miranda Lee Richards, Pete Holstrom (to name a few). Says Joel of the album:With all the BJM members now living  so spread out across the world, I found myself increasingly missing the album making process. This feeling of disconnect is what kick started me into exploring my own song writing process and turned out to be a hugely important piece of self discovery. No more time for my beloved laziness. So I made my own music with a with bunch of friends in the studio coming and going and having a great time creating. I think a lot of people are going to be surprised by this album.With the musicians involved, it's no surprise that sonically it's firmly in the BJM's psychedelic '60s wheelhouse, but this is pretty together stuff and Gion has more up his sleeve than a tambourine. (He's not a bad singer, either, if you were wondering.) Hear for yourself, we've got the premiere of the Apple Bonkers' "Dart" which you can listen to, along with another track from the album, in this post. If you pre-order the LP you get an instant download of those two tracks.

No North American tour plans at the moment, but Joel Gion (with members of the BJM) are currently in the UK and those dates listed below. (He has another band, The Primary Colours, but that's not who is on this tour.) Joel says the band plans to be on the road on our continent later this year, stay tuned.

While we're on the subject, the Brian Jonestown Massacre released their 14th album, Revelation, earlier this year and it's by far the best thing they've done in ages. Post-DiG!, it's been easy to forget that people liked the BJM for the music before the onstage bust-ups. Anton Newcombe seems to have it together these days and Revelation is full of memorable melodies and not too much of the lengthy jamming which the band's late-'00s LPs were full of. If you dug Take it from the Man and Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request, you should definitely give this one a spin. It's streaming on Rdio. No North American BJM dates either.

Hessismore releasing new album (stream a track), celebrating with five-night NYC run ++ other dates

Brooklyn Vegan - 13 hours 57 min ago

Mikkel Hess has been making music as Hess is More for a while now and is set to release a new album next month. With it comes a typographic shift (or perhaps just a broken space-bar on his keyboard), changing the name of his group to Hessismore and the album, due August 19, is titled Myheadisaballroom / Whoneedsaplaceanyway. That's the cover art above. Where his previous releases were more of a solo venture, the new LP was made with a steady band that's been gigging pretty regularly over the last couple years, and was recorded by Andrew Raposo (Midnight Magic, Hercules & Love Affair). We've got the premiere of the LP's groovy "Bearsong" in this post.

To celebrate the new album, the eight-piece Hessismore ensemble will perform five nights at East Village club Nublu from August 18 - 22. Tickets are on sale now. If you've never seen their live show -- tight, jazzy, krauty disco -- it's highly recommended.

Hessismore have a few other dates lined up as well, including the Wassaic Project festival in Wassaic, NY next weekend (Aug 1). All are listed, along with the new song stream, album tracklist / trailer and a live video, below...

Brooklyn Vegan - 14 hours 31 min ago

Falls of Rauros at The Acheron in 2012 (more by Samantha Marle)

Two of the northeast's best atmospheric black metal bands, Falls of Rauros and Obsidian Tongue, along with the NYC electronic/synth/guitar wizard Oneirogen, will be playing an Invisible Oranges-presented show at Union Pool on August 27. Advanced tickets for the Brooklyn show aren't on sale yet, but we'll let you know when they are.

Falls of Rauros just released a song on a split with Panopticon and has a new LP, Believe in No Coming Shore, due out this summer. The tracklist is below. The NYC show is part of an as yet unannounced string of dates that includes Southern Darkness Festival in Tampa, Florida on August 23rd with Pelican, Phobia, Black Tusk, Weekend Nachos, Bongripper, A Storm Of Light, Lord Mantis, Primate, Magrudergrind, Mouth Of The Architect, Yautja, Sannhet, Maruta and many more.

Obsidian Tongue released one of the best atmospheric black metal albums of 2013 in A Nest of Ravens in the Throat of Time. They can also be found on 9/6 at Waterfront Tavern in their home state of Massachusetts.

Oneirogen is a blast to watch, a one-man force of nature that blends looping electronics with memorable guitar leads to inundating effect. You can meanwhile catch him this Saturday (7/26) at Trans Pecos as part of 'Escape From New York', " one last big celebration megashow in the city" before Matt from Skeletons moves out of the city ("This is not necessarily "THE LAST" Skeletons show, but it will be the last show by Skeletons as a local act - and the last Skeletons show until sometime around a year from now, or even later..."). PC Worship, Zs, Hubble, Charlie Looker (now also of Psalm Zero who just opened for Black Anvil), and more are on the Todd P venue Queens bill. "The party will start in the afternoon, with BBQ and baby pools - and continue with DJs into the night." More details below.

Listen to streams from the bands playing Union Pool with the other stuff below, and head over to Invisible Oranges for more about them and the show.

Speedy Ortiz @ 4Knots 2014

Modern Life Is War recently announced two club dates to happen this summer at Philly's First Unitarian Church on 8/29 and NYC's Bowery Ballroom on 8/30. Since we last spoke, openers have been announced for both shows. Direct support on the Philly date will come from MLIW's Deathwish labelmates Self Defense Family, and on the NYC show it's heavy shoegazers Nothing (who were in NYC a few days ago for a free show with Ceremony and Iron Lung). Opening both dates will be DC punks Give and Iowa psychedelic band Land of Blood & Sunshine. Tickets for Philly and NYC are on sale now.

Speaking of bands who just played free NYC shows being added as openers to hardcore shows, Speedy Ortiz, who just played 4Knots, were added to the Fucked Up show happening at Irving Plaza on September 6. Tickets for that show are still available. Speedy will return to NYC not long after that for two shows on their tour with Ex Hex.

We already posted one set of pictures of 4Knots, and another batch of Speedy's set is in this post. They continue, with lists of Speedy and Nothing dates, below...

Brooklyn Vegan - 14 hours 53 min ago

by Bill Pearis

Death Valley Girls dropped their debut, Street Venom, earlier this year as a cassette-only release on Burger. It's snarly, punky, attitude-heavy rock n' roll and you can stream it below. (The cassestte is sold out.) There weren't a lot of details about the band at the time -- no press pics, a cagey bio -- but turns out this is the new band from Patty Schemel (Hole, Upset). Her brother Larry is in the band too on guitar, with singer Bonnie Bloomgarden (who some may remember from NYC band The Witnesses; she's on the new King Tuff album too) and Rachel Orosco on bass. Death Valley Girls have a new EP, Electric High, out August 19 and we've got the premiere of its title track in this post.

The band will be on the road this fall, opening West Coast dates for Shonen Knife (who play NYC in September). Nothing for the East Coast yet, but stay tuned. All dates, along with streams, below...

Saintseneca drop off Fashion Meets Music Festival because R. Kelly is headlining

Brooklyn Vegan - 15 hours 28 min ago

Saintseneca at BV-SXSW 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)

Columbus, OH indie folk band Saintseneca were set to play this year's Fashion Meets Music Festival in their hometown, but they've dropped off the fest due to the headliner that was booked: R. Kelly. Here's an excerpt of what Saintseneca had to say:Fashion Meets Music Festival happening in Columbus was a very exciting prospect to us; a way to represent our city and help form its identity, as well as a symbol of new things to come. We were very honored and excited to be asked to be a part of it.

That being said, we were disappointed that the artist selected to headline the festival was R. Kelly. We feel his selection as a performer ignores his very serious allegations of sexual violence and assault. We feel it is an affront to all survivors, who are already often overlooked and forgotten in our society.

As a result, we've decided to withdraw from the festival. This is in no way meant to be a direct attack on the festival or its organizers; in fact, we genuinely appreciate their hard work and their commitment to bringing something new and exciting to our hometown. It is just that being so closely associated with this artist, especially here in our own hometown, is something we are not comfortable with.Jim DeRogatis points out that electronic duo Damn the Witch Siren dropped off the fest for the same reason too. Read Saintseneca's full statement, with a video from this year's Dark Arc, below...

Watch Jack White enjoying a Cubs game (like everyone watching live on TV did), Eddie Vedder too

Brooklyn Vegan - 15 hours 41 min ago

(pic via @mobute)

If you watched yesterday's Cubs-Padres game on TV, you may have seen Jack White in the stands. That Cubs jersey almost fits in with Lazaretto's sapphire color scheme, with a bit of the old White Stripes palette in there too. While he probably had a good time, the screencap above could inspire Sad Keanu-like memes. (UPDATE: It has already.)The ever-fact-filled announcer notes "his new record is really really good" and also recommends It Might Get Loud, the documentary with White, The Edge and Jimmy Page. Eddie Vedder was there too and this is part of a "3 ballparks in 3 days" run for White.

Watch a clip (via CoS) of the Cubs game, and check out a pic with Vedder, below.

Baltimore's Dope Body have announced they'll follow 2012's Natural History with a new album, Lifer, on October 21 via Drag City. Its first single, "Hired Gun," is a punk rager filled with noise guitar heroics that you should definitely play loud. Turn up and do so below.

Boyd Shropshire (Kurt Vile, Human Television) releasing new solo album (stream it), playing NYC release show

Boyd Shropshire has been playing in Philly bands for years. You may remember him from mid-'00s indie rockers Human Television and he's also spent time with Kurt Vile & the Violators. Shropshire will release his second solo album, Victory Weather, next week (7/29) via Wonderland Archives. As you might expect from a former Vile associate, it's hazy, lazy and quite lovely. You can listen to the whole thing right now -- we're premiering a stream of the whole album in this post.

There will be a NYC release party on August 5 at Union Pool. Jess Williamson and Matt Bauer are also on the bill with Boyd. No advance tickets, $8 at the door.

Joyce Manor celebrated their new LP at Rough Trade (pics)

Brooklyn Vegan - 17 hours 21 min ago

"there is a 2 year old up in the balcony rocking out harder than most people at Joyce Manor right now." - Jenna L

photos by Amanda Hatfield, words by Andrew Sacher


California punks Joyce Manor put out their third album and first for Epitaph, Never Hungover Again, yesterday (7/22) and came to NYC for a release show at Rough Trade NYC. Pictures are in this post.

It was technically an "in-store," which at Rough Trade still means it happens in their concert room, but all you had to do get in was buy the record at the store and the band played an early opener-less show that started just after 7 and was over by 8. One might assume an early show like that would be a calmer one, but that wasn't the case. Joyce Manor went from 0 to 60, beginning their set with "Catalina Fight Song," the first single and most aggressive song off the new LP, and the crowd was already ready to raise fists and yell back every word. The next few songs came with maybe a second of space between them, packing one minute and a half punch after another.

The band split their set pretty evenly between the new album and their 2011 self-titled debut (and with the lengths of their songs, they got to play almost all of both), but threw in some treats too. The last time I saw them, "Violent Inside" was the only song played off their under-appreciated second album, and that was played last night but so was a revved up version of that album's "See How Tame I Can Be," which the band pointed out they've only ever played a few times before. They reached back to their 2010 EP for early fan favorite "Five Beer Plan" too. The wildest moments came from S/T standouts "Leather Jacket" and "Constant Headache," which by far triggered the most stage diving of the night and ended up with both singers' mics in the crowd, but the response for the new material was great too. Perhaps the reason Joyce Manor don't play much of their second LP live is that they see the more ambitious record as more of a studio project, but the new album successfully combines the first two. It gives them the chance to rock out like their earlier material, but it was clear hearing a song like "Schley" next to a song like "Constant Nothing" that their songwriting and structures are continuing to progress.

Joyce Manor will be back in NYC when their proper tour hits Bowery Ballroom on September 15 with The Exquisites and Mike Bell & The Movies. Tickets for that show are still available.
