Brooklyn Vegan - Tue, 2014-09-02 04:00

Blonde Redhead @ Webster Hall 2010 (more by Chris Gerbeck)

Interpol @ FYF Fest 2014 (more by Adela Loconte)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Interpol @ The Met's Temple of Dendur
Interpol's new album, El Pintor, is out today and the band are celebrating with this special show amongst the ruins of The Met's Temple of Dendur. Sold out, as is their Bowery show later this week.

Blonde Redhead @ Rough Trade
Blonde Redhead's new album Barragán, their first in four years, is also out today and they're celebrating with this in-store at Rough Trade. You need to buy the LP or CD today (store opens at 11 AM) and that gets you two wristbands to get into the show.

Mal Blum, Worriers, Arm Candy, Chandeli'ers, CCTV @ Death by Audio
The Measure [sa] is over, but Lauren Denitzio now makes similarly great poppy punk in her band Worriers. If you like them, you might wanna catch Arm Candy too.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Watch the latest visual eye-candy by the creative Icelandic force Steed Lord directed by their very own beat-maker Einar Egilsson aka Mega.

“Curtain Call” is the 1st single of their forthcoming follow-up album The Prophecy pt.2 which is the second chapter to their 2-piece album project coming out later this year.

"This cinematic clip takes you on a journey into the mind of a heartbroken soul who’s trying to cope with a lonely reality…"

Welikei Indie - Tue, 2014-09-02 02:31


The story of Gorgon City is a perfect microcosm of the story of how 21st century dance music coming in from the cold. Kye Gibbon & Matt Robson-Scott are 2 young men who each separately jumped in to clubland’s deepest + choppiest waters (at a time when halfway-decent club culture was as fragmented as it’s been the last two decades & entering a period of extreme marginalisation) + learned to swim the hard way. Since then they’ve become skilled navigators of its currents, observed as streams converged & split again, & more by accident than design were perfectly prepared to ride its current waves of mainstream popularity.

Gorgon City’s debut album Sirens is being released on October 6th via Black Butter. The lead single, “Unmissable” featuring Zak Abel precedes it on September 29th. The video was directed by the much in demand young British – Swiss director Ben Strebel (Jaevon / Dornik / Phoenix) + tells the classic story of boy meets girl & the feelings you experience in that instant, unmissable moment of mutual attraction & how you must grab it with both hands.

In addition to this, Matt & Kye are incredibly excited to announce details of their mammoth 30 date live tour in support of their debut album this coming autumn. The fully live show - which will feature a whole host of guests who also feature on the record – takes them across the UK & Europe in November + December. 1st though, they kick off a 12 date DJ tour of N. America on October 9th in Miami which finishes up in LA on the 25th. The live show then starts up in Manchester on November 7th & takes them through London on the 15th for a show at The Forum & finishes up with a show in Paris on December 20th.

See HERE for the live Gorgon City experience at this years’ R1 Big Weekend.

Welikei Indie - Mon, 2014-09-01 17:02


Vuurwerk (Flemish for Fireworks) are 3 Belgian musicians/producers based in Brussels & part of the city’s music/film/art/design/party throwing collective Run Tell Secrecy. Having previously released an album under the name Jealov for US indie Mush, home to the likes of cLOUDEAD & Boom Bip, the trio have recently focussed on their alternative Vuurwerk identity.

In 2013, as Vuurwerk, they released the ME + ONE maxi EP on Dandelion Lotus, a record that saw them pick up a ‘breakthrough artist’ award at last year’s Red Bull Elektropedia Awards & earlier this year remixed fellow Belgians School Is Cool to heavy effect.

The band are currently working on the new Vuurwerk album, due for release in 2015 & the remix below of Bon Iver’s “Minnesota, WI” was recorded during a break in the new album sessions.

Drive Like Jehu played their first show in 19 years with Rob Crow of Pinback and organist Carol Williams (full set video)

Brooklyn Vegan - Mon, 2014-09-01 16:59

"Drive Like Jehu set was great. Hoping for more gigs & that this is not a one off despite what John Reis says. Worth 3.5 hour drive. sinews!" - Toddrick Spalding

"Drive Like Jehu, best show of the summer man." - Madison Woodward

"Wow Drive Like Jehu just sounded amazing. Like no time had passed. And with Rob Crow from Pinback joining. They need to tour. No question" - P Squared

"Words I never thought I would ever get to say: 'Drive Like Jehu sounded amazing live.'" - Luke Sigler

"drive like jehu concert was short but they sounded tight as hell" - Justin Hogg

"Pretty sure Drive Like Jehu just played the loudest show in the 99-year history of the Spreckels Organ Pavilion. " - Matthew T. Hall

"OMG drive like jehu!!!! jk I dunno who the fuck that is lol" - Tennie Marie B.

Drive Like Jehu in San Diego's Balboa Park - 8/31/2014 (photo by Tod Seelie)

Legendary, influential post-hardcore band Drive Like Jehu reunited for their first show in 19 years last night (8/31) in their hometown of San Diego. The free show, which they're saying was a one-off, happened in Balboa Park and was a chance for them to perform with the outdoor venue's Spreckels Pipe Organ (played by organist Carol Williams), one of the world's largest pipe organs and one that's been used for concerts since 1914. Their 5-song set included four songs from their final album, 1994's Yank Crime, as well as one from their 1991 self-titled debut. For their closing track, "Luau," they were joined by Rob Crow of fellow San Diego band Pinback. The show streamed live online last night, and you can now watch videos of the entire show, with the setlist, below.

Though they're saying that's the only Drive Like Jehu reunion show (but our fingers are crossed that it won't be!), the band has members in other bands including Hot Snakes who play Riot Fest Chicago in September, Rocket from the Crypt who play Fun Fun Fun Fest in November, and others.

Welikei Indie - Mon, 2014-09-01 15:35


One of the most critically acclaimed Dub Police artists returns… Subscape, the man behind 2013’s blazing “MyStyle 003” mix, is back! Previously featured on Dub Police’s Past Present Future album, “I Would Have Loved You” was so well received that its imminent single release was inevitable.

Charging with a pumping groove, crystalline piano riff, undulating bass & purring vocals, this track is a rare moment of party positivity & dancefloor unity that’s seldom found in deep dubstep. These distinctive motifs echo throughout the remixes, too. LA’s AWE lays down a head-twisting hybrid where formative house organs combine with dreamy overlays + dramatic rolling beats. Meanwhile Atlantic Parade – a brand new act scouted by the sharp ears of Subscape himself – serves up a soul-soothing blend that struts + jacks with timeless deep house majesty.

The packet also comes with the brand new production “Angels”. Taking inspiration from the LA beat scene, it’s a whirlwind of emotional synths, anchor- like kicks, deep immersive subs & stunning guitar lines that shimmer with sonic beauty. Just like the EP title track, it acts as a great teaser for Subscape’s forthcoming album.

Welikei Indie - Mon, 2014-09-01 13:03


Trentemøller’s recent album opus Lost already served as the logical continuation of his varied work & delivered his signature sound intact, yet it really didn’t sound like anything he’d ever produced before. Streamlined, song-structured + guitar-driven, Lost boasted a dozen tracks, each offering something of interest for anyone who has ever been a fan of the Copenhagen producer.

As original as it is classic, Lost mixed the tried-&-tested with all sorts of sonic surprises, merging the extrovert & introvert qualities the man has in his command. Also notable for being his most collaborative effort yet, Lost paired him with a vibrant & varied cast of guests - the legendary duo Low, Jonny Pierce from The Drums, Marie Fisker, Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead, Jana Hunter of Lower Dens, Ghost Society + Sune Wagner of The Raveonettes.

Now the new Lost Reworks release gleefully rips up the rule book again, as Trentemøller is joined by some carefully-chosen conspirators - Toydrum (aka James Griffith + Pablo Clements of UNKLE), Jenny Wilson, T.O.M. & His Computer, Unkwon, Pinkunoizu + Trentemøller himself - in dismantling the intricate musical tapestry of the album, recon-textualising the instrumental experimentation, the trashed analog consoles, & the entire sweep of influences, from krautrock to classical.

You can listen to Lost Reworks on Soundcloud. Digital copies available now on iTunes.

If you can read this page, then that means you are based in a universe where 20Jazzfunkgreats is operational.

20 Jazz Funk Greats - Mon, 2014-09-01 08:22

Rejoice!

It could be very different. You could be in a universe where 20jazzfunkgreats lives in a constant 503 state. Or in a universe where 20jazzfunkgreats publishes complex analyses of the physics of crabcore1. Or in a universe where 20jazzfunkgreats is operational, thanks to a top notch digital infrastructure funded through advertising, product placement and other forms of revenue generation.

But you aren’t. You are in a universe where 20jazzfunkgreats is more or less the way it was when it came into existence ca. 10 years ago, a universe where 20jazzfunkgreats spends its Sundays scowling at passing children from the window of its manor, while its considers alternative scenarios for the evolution of Planet Earth, if only the multi-dimensional dice that shape cultural change had landed differently.

But before you start feeling lucky, consider this:

If you can read this page, then that means you are based in a universe where ERE Electronique 1988 video game ‘Captain Blood’ didn’t become the blueprint for a new and weird phase of interactive entertainment that would support mankind in the next stage of its evolution.

In other words, you are not based in a world where creating a H.R. Giger inspired game about an Errol Flynn obsessed video game designer exiled in hyperspace who has to hunt 5 of his clones to reconnect with humanity, by building the trust of alien species using an alphabet of 150 icons and navigating fractal landscapes wasn’t ‘the way things are done.’

Oh, and using an excerpt of Jean Michel Jarre’s Ethnicolor for the title credits.

Instead, you are based in a universe where such things are considered oddities, weird experiments described in the footnotes of a history of the evolution of the medium leading to a current situation where a not-insignificant proportion of the game-playing public behaves online in a way reminiscent of the mindless tendrils of abominable putrescence one encounters crawling down the dimly lit caverns of Dark Souls’ Blight Town.

Despair!

Jean Michel Jarre – Zoolooklogie

Zooloklogie is also featured in Zoolook, the album whence Ethnicolor was extracted, and sounds like the theme tune for Miami Vice if Miami Vice was set in a gnostic world where, after the awakening of the collective intelligence and the convergence of all languages, the only regulated commodities were complex epistemological concepts that can send its citizens into paradoxical Gödel loops where a contemporary visitor might see echoes of ‘breakdancing’.

1 Crabcore as in emaciated youngsters squatting over their guitars like priapic frogs, not the version we prefer, that EDM sub-genre developed by the secretive arthropod visitors H.P.

What's going on Labor Day? (Fool's Gold Day Off, Peter Gutteridge, Mega Bog, MV and EE, Woodsman & more)

Brooklyn Vegan - Mon, 2014-09-01 04:00

Danny Brown @ Pitchfork 2014 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Danny Brown, A-Trak, French Montana, AraabMUZIK, The Lox, Brenmar, DJ Hoodboi, Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World's Fair, Nick Catchdubs (w/ B.I.C.), Shash'u, Black Dave, Grandemarshall @ 50 Kent
If you're looking for some all-day fun to finish off your Labor Day, the annual Fool's Gold Day Off, happening at outdoor Williamsburg venue 50 Kent this year, should quench that thirst. As usual, it's a stacked lineup of electronic music and hip hop, headlined by the great Danny Brown (playing for his third year in a row). Also on the bill is veteran NYC trio The LOX (aka Sheek Louch, Styles P and Jadakiss), upcoming Queens crew World's Fair, hotshot producer AraabMuzik, label co-heads A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs (the latter joined by rap crew B.I.C.) and plenty more.

Peter Gutteridge, Mega Bog, Iji, EZTV @ Palisades
Peter Gutteridge spent time in original line-ups of both The Clean and The Chills before starting noise-rock band Snapper in the early '90s. In 1989, he put out a solo album, Pure, which was reissued recently by 540 Records and which he'll be performing in full at the show. Also on the bill: Seattle's Megabog and IJI, plus local jangle/powerpop band EZTV.

MV and EE @ Baby's All Right
MV & EE, aka duo Matt Valentine and Erika Elder, have collaborated with J. Mascis and members of Chelsea Light Moving in the past and released new album, Shade Grown, earlier this year. If you dig jammy trips through droning atmospheres and psych-rock guitar noodling, that should be in effect tonight.

Jozef Van Wissem, Woodsman, Ancient Ocean @ Baby's All Right
If you are coming to see MV and EE, you might consider sticking around for this later set: Woodsman will released their self-titled third album earlier this year via their new home Fire Talk. The band make bold steps into mid fidelity on this one and it suits them well. It's rhythm-heavy in a Can/Neu! kind of way, still with their dark, droning textures swirling around. Gothy lutenist Jozef Van Wissem headlines.

Christines, VANIISH, Interval, Winkie @ Glasslands
You can finish up your holiday weekend -- if you're not wiped out -- with an evening of goth and shoegaze at Glasslands. San Francisco's VANIISH (members of Wax Idols and Soft Moon) are playing their first of two NYC shows tonight, with glide guitar experts Christines, INTERVAL and Winkie, as well as Weekend's Shaun Durkan on DJ duty

Smoke Fairies @ Rough Trade
With their name alone, UK folk act Smoke Fairies conjur up images of early '70s rolling green, wistful dreamy melodies and the like. The band's new album heads a little more into adult contemporary territory, but their harmonies still beguile.

DJ Marfox, DJ Cortega, DJ Underdog, Kashaka @ Output
Portugal electronic musician DJ Marfox just played Warm Up this past Saturday, but that wasn't the only chance you'll get to see him during the day outdoors during this long Labor Day Weekend. He plays Output's roof this afternoon, 2 PM start.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Crocodiles, SISU, Young Boys @ Baby's All Right
Crocodiles just put the finishing touches on their new album and are headlining this family affair kind of night, with opening slots from SISU (featuring Sandra and Jules of Dum Dum Girls) and Young Boys who are signed to Crocodiles/DDGs-owned label, Zoo Music.

Seattle's sludgy Darto headline this bill that also features the back-in-action Weed Hounds, and jangly shoegazers Gingerlys.

Mineral played their first show in 17 years at Austin's Mohawk with Jess Williamson (pics & setlist)

Mineral @ Mohawk - 8/17/2014

Veteran emo band Mineral are reuniting for their first tour in 17 years, which begins with four sold-out NYC shows next week (starting 9/4). However, like American Football did in Chicago, the Austin band decided to bless their hometown with a surprise show last night (8/29). Billed as "The Parking Lot" (whose name is a Mineral song and whose logo resembled The Power of Failing's artwork), Mineral strongly hinted on their Facebook that it would be them, and opener Jess Williamson later revealed it on Instagram, writing:The secret's out: I'm very honored to announce that tonight I will be opening for "The Parking Lot" which is all the members of Mineral playing Mineral songs. Just me and my band at 10 and then they play at 11. EndSerenading was one of my favorite records as a wee little 14 year old girl trying to find my angsty place in the word. You can probably still email me at lastwordsrejoice@aol.com. so honored and excited for tonight!!Doors for the show opened at 9 PM, and the line was already down the block by 7. The show (a benefit for SXSW Cares) took place in the venue's smaller indoor room, and was (of course) entirely sold out. Mineral split the set pretty evenly between their two full lengths, though leaned a little more heavily on EndSerenading, and also included both sides of the "February / M.D." single. Were you one of the lucky ones who got in? How was it?

Mineral's tour begins in proper at NYC's Saint Vitus on September 4, followed by three nights at Bowery Ballroom. All four of those NYC shows are sold out, but you can get tickets to most other tour stops (including the New Haven, CT stop) at their website.

A-Trak played the ongoing Electric Zoo festival on Randall's Island yesterday (8/29), but we now know that won't be the only time he plays NYC this long Labor Day weekend. He's been added to Fool's Gold Day Off (he co-runs Fool's Gold with Nick Catchdubs), happening all day Monday (9/1) at 50 Kent (2 PM to 10 PM). He joins the previously-announced lineup of Danny Brown, French Montana, AraabMuzik, The LOX, Benmar, Hoodboi B2B Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World's Fair, Nick Catchdubs (feat. B.I.C.), Shash'U, Black Dave and GrandeMarshall. Tickets are still available.

Brooklyn Vegan - Sat, 2014-08-30 04:00

No Joy at Mexican Summer Five (more by PSquared)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

No Joy, Black Pus, Cousin Brian, Flagland @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Montreal's great, underrated No Joy return for a second Night Bazaar show of 2014. It's part of of a night of interesting bands and its free.

Sunflower Bean, Baked, ONWE, WADE @ Baby's All Right
Lightly psychedelic with grooving basslines and sweet harmonies, new Brooklyn Sunflower Bean seem to have a firm grasp on their sound.

Single Mothers, Vomitface, Robot Death Kites @ Cake Shop
Canada's Single Mothers have been making highly promising literate punk for a few years now, and this year they're finally ready to release their long-awaited debut LP. This is their second of two NYC shows this weekend, and much smaller than last night's.

Salt Cathedral, Johnny Aries, Arc Waves @ Glasslands
Johnny Aires plays in the live incarnation of The Drums and his solo stuff isn't a million miles away from the strummy guitar pop of The Drums' earlier material and fans of that -- or The Smiths -- should find something to dig here.

Garfunkel and Oates @ Irving Plaza
Comedy-folk duo Garfunkel and Oates consists of actress/singers Kate Micucci (Scrubs, Big Bang Theory) and Riki Lindhome (Gilmore Girls, Big Bang Theory), and are named after "two famous rock-and-roll second bananas." They've got a new show on IFC and are also currently touring, hitting NYC tonight.

Handsome Family, Richard Buckner @ Mercury Lounge
True Detective may not have scored much at this year's Emmys, but the hit HBO show certainly brought deserved attention to veteran Americana gothic band Handsome Family via "Far From Any Road," which was used as the theme song.

Modern Life is War, Nothing, Give, Land of Blood and Sunshine @ Bowery Ballroom
Modern Life Is War's initial run as a band in the early-mid 2000s inspired many of today's great post-hardcore bands, and 2013's comeback album, Fever Hunting, showed they've still got it as much as any of the bands that came in their wake. Great openers too: heavy shoegazers Nothing, DC punks Give, and Iowa psychedelic band Land of Blood & Sunshine.

Benji B, Dam-Funk (live), DJ Marfox, Tessela, Dutch E Germ, Avalon Emerson @ MoMA PS1
Warm Up, the outdoor daytime show series of forward-thinking electronic music, continues with BBC's Benji B, the funky Dam-Funk, Portugal's DJ Marfox, UK bass producer Tessela, former Gang Gang Dancer Dutch E Germ, and Berlin-via-San Francisco producer Avalon Emerson.

Tessela, Teengirl Fantasy, Avalon Emerson, Contakt @ Baby's All Right
Keep the party going with Tessela and Avalon Emerson after Warm Up by heading to Baby's where they team up with NYC locals Teengirl Fantasy and Contakt.

Roger Waters, The Persuasions, G.E. Smith, Rufus Wainwright @ Perfect Earth Project
The former Pink Floyd frontman will be among a handful of performers set to delight dozens of 1%ers (the non biker kind) in the Hamptons at the Perfect Earth Project's Second Biennial Family Picnic and Concert. Tickets range from $250 to $10,000. Proceeds benefit PEP, an organization that "promotes toxin-free lawns and landscapes to protect human health and the environment."

Mount Kimbie (DJ), Aden, JDH & Dave P, Dan Wender, Blacky II @ The Wick
UK electronic duo Mount Kimbie were supposed to play a live set at this show, but are now actually DJing. Though we can still likely count on them to play some good tunes.

Heavy Blanket, Honey @ Union Pool
You may remember -- and maybe your ears are still ringing from it if you were there -- thatHeavy Blanket played Summer Thunder last year and got shut down by the cops after 15 minutes of wailing for being too damn loud. How long will they make it this year. Show up early to catch newish local psych-garage act Honey. Free.
