Health - Death Magic
I'm super bummed that I'll be out of town for this.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯'s approach to songwriting is just too flippant to be taken seriously for this vital conversation.
The obvious, correct answer to this question is Spoon.
For those on the fence, some more $75 3-day passes were just released and with only $3 in fees: http://thechurchonyork.bigcartel.com/
For those who dig The Cyclist, or who enjoy the "cassette house" sound in general, Beat Detectives' Climate Change is well-worth seeking out. Their release on 1080p last year (ASSCOP) was really...
Nah, not really interested in either day of HARD actually. Free music + free tacos + 5 minute drive is a nice alternative.
And I was able to grab one for Death Grips right at 10 - you going to be...
^ I just RSVP'd since it's free and minutes from my place; kind of a weird event/location but whatevs. Link.
I've been digging that RP Boo one too; you might want to check out this comp called Foodworks Vol. 1 from some label in Argentina, as it's stuffed with some really interesting tracks:...
Cool! I won't be going to FYF and didn't think I'd have the chance to see them otherwise.
Onsale this Friday 7/10 (although there's a presale for Thursday), and tickets are $27.
I enjoyed it a lot on my first listen; I have a feeling this shift away from guitars (it's really only "Eventually" that has a pronounced guitar part) to a more keyboard/synth-driven, R&B-esque...
Something else you could try in terms of breaking it up a bit is to go disc by disc, as technically it's split across three:
Disc 1 (titled "The Plan") is "Change of the Guard"--"The Rhythm...
PC Music is a UK label which puts out pretty awful tongue-in-cheek electro pop; as a micro-genre it strikes me a bit like vaporwave in that it's appropriating/re-purposing throw-away music for the...
I'm just giving you a hard time, Mitch :lips
"Important Messages Delivered in 50 Minutes or Less or Your Album is Overwrought and Long-Winded!"
A couldn't even make it through the whole album on my first listen, although the second listen was a bit better. Still nowhere near as good as their first two albums, though.
I've been enjoying a...
I guess it's technically not a leak as he just put it up on his own Bandcamp page, but...
Four Tet - Morning/Evening
I've been digging the collaboration between the Gnawa Maalem (master) Mahmoud Guinia, Floating Points, and James Holden called Marhaba, which was released a month or so ago.
I'm with Patrick,...
Ducktails - St. Catherine
This album is just too good; it's certainly in the same vein as his EPs from the last couple of years, but there's an intensity and focus to this one which really puts it over the top for me.
I really love this release as well (I think I may have mentioned it in this thread a few months ago too); a lot of stuff with that "decaying VHS" sound (which is a really great description, by the...
So I've actually been having a lot of fun with research for this festival, as I was/am unfamiliar with close to 2/3 of the artists listed. Thanks to Zach for the rec on Dead Moon, Bryan for Low Life,...
Jenny Hval's Apocalypse, girl has really grown on me, as it took some time to unpack the way she blends the more straightforward tracks, like the excellent "This Battle is Over" and "Sabbath," with...
The 2nd (Alexis' tap-in) was certainly onside but honestly a draw was a fair result for both teams - what a phenomenal game that was! Hopefully Argentina v Uruguay is equally as entertaining this...
I'm super excited that Strut, a fantastic reissue label out of London, has just made their entire catalog available to stream for free on Bandcamp: https://strut.bandcamp.com/
Come to Berserktown! We've got a couch for you to crash on for the weekend.
Not that big ticket, but with the credit I picked up:
Pere Ubu - Dub Housing (OP US)
Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou - "The Vodoun Effect" 1972-1975: Funk & Sato from Benin´s Obscure Labels (2LP...
Yay MST3K! Too much good stuff on this lineup to pass up.
Now the question is do I use the credit for one or two "big ticket" items or use it for a handful of decent ones...Atomic here in Burbank always has really awesome stuff on both ends of the spectrum.
Damn, I think I'm going to have to go to that Savages show at the Casbah - fantastic venue for them!
Damn, ods, great scores! How was the NHK show btw?
Thee Oh Sees - Mutilator Defeated at Last (colored vinyl)
On my most recent visit to my parents' house I was sent home with the...
This happened twice to me as well, had to use my wife's card and that finally took. The weird thing is, though, that I have pending transactions from FrontGate for the layaway payment on the two...
Looks like TallGuy beat me to it in making a Spotify playlist! Lots of these bands are on Bandcamp too, especially those on the bottom half of each day.
The JCO thing was something I heard...
Frog Eyes opening the 9/18-20 and 10/16-17 shows
I'll see what I can put together over the next few days.
Sunday is absolutely stacked! Friday is going to be a blast too, although (for me anyway) Saturday is a bit light; I guess that just...
So I finally got around to doing some basic research on the full lineup after a roadtrip and found that there's LOTS to see each day; I also like that even with all the additions there's a nice...
I'm a bit bummed by the change too, mainly because it just means a much longer drive back and forth each day. As long as they don't oversell the new venue I'm sure it will be fine.
THE TREES STAGE IS MEANT FOR BANDS THAT BRING A LOT OF ENERGY.
^ I really liked what I heard from them in doing a bit of research for Berserktown.
Full lineup with day-by-day breakdown (updated the OP with it) and website (berserktown.com) now up!
3 stages held at the Observatory in Santa Ana; parking lot will be used for...
6/25 - Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver
6/30 - The Fillmore, San Francisco
7/2 - Teragram Ballroom, Los Angeles
LA & SF on sale Friday at 10
^ That's really good!
I made a quick pass through the lineup last week and am going to dig in a bit more today, but even with just a quick pass I'd be happy to see half of the bands on the bill so...
Try the SF thread too: https://www.coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?37636-Just-announced-shows-in-San-Francisco
Full lineup to be announced next Wednesday (5/13) on KXLU 88.9 sometime during the 6-9AM slot!
They also hinted a second time at Royal Trux being there by attaching a photo of the two of them to...
I had no idea he had a new album coming out!
Daughn Gibson - Carnation
Write a bit about them/share some songs! With so many less-than-familiar bands on the bill we should try and educate each other about who we're excited for on it.
August 14, 15, and 16
The Observatory Santa Ana
3-day Pass is $125; single day tickets are $55 - get tickets here
Vendors include Sacred Bones, La Vida Es Un Mus Discos, East 7th, Come Tees &...
Jenny Hval - Apocalypse, girl
That Riovh album is SO GOOD! Probably my favorite release from them last year, along with Lnrdcroy's.
For those missing the punk/hardcore this year, maybe Berserktown II would be the better option.
In fact, the more I dig into this lineup the...
