Watch Girl Crisis Cover Leonard Cohen (Stereogum Premiere)

The latest, eighth dispatch from Girl Crisis, the all-Brooklyn all-female concept-troupe supergroup committed to two covers a year (of a male icon in the winter, female in the sumer) via Super 8mm film in a Greenpoint apartment has just offered up their latest seasonal selection: a tribute to the bard Leonard Cohen's "More »

Apache Beat – “Tracing Sky”

It's been a little bit since we heard from Brooklyn indie rockers Apache Beat, but they're returning to the action with a new single called "Tracing Sky," a grandiose squall stuffed with mingling guitars. It stands as one of the most immediate things they've ever done. Stream it below. More »

Girl Crisis (Chairlift, Class Actress, Telepathe, Au Revoir Simone, Acrylics, Apache Beat) Cover Black Sabbath

Last year we posted some of the covers by Girl Crisis, the video-only, female-only, evolving group of Brooklyn musicians who record covers for fun (no plans for releases or touring). This time around they're covering much-loved Sabbath track "Paranoid," as per their rule of covering a female-vocaled song in the summer, a male one… More »

Typical Girls – “Our Real Is Real” (Plus Brother Bruno Remix)

Typical Girls is the Slits-referencing solo project of Apache Beat's Ilirjana Alushaj. "Our Real Is Real," which includes production assistance from CFCF's Mike Silver, doesn't conjure Ari Up in obvious ways. You may note a shared sense of compression and echo as well as sharp guitars and a chunky bassline, but this is more… More »

Stereogum & Popgun STEREO★GUN CMJ Party, Santos Party House, NYC 10/20/10

Last night our STEREO★GUN collaboration with PopGun Booking went down on both floors of Santos Party House. Sometime from when we organized it, to the actual happening, people got especially excited about Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., who found themselves with a relatively raucous, packed room by the time they played their basement set. There… More »

Stereogum & PopGun Present STEREO★GUN: ALL NIGHT LONG 10/20/10

Every autumn NYC's week-long college music marathon is a great excuse for radio promoters and DSLR-toting bloggers to hobnob with famous publicists. Those who attend on official CMJ bizness even receive a canvas tote bag of promotional garbage. Also there are panels? I'm told There Will Be Panels. Joking aside, in its 30th year CMJ… More »

Apache Beat – “Another Day” Video, Aaron LaCrate Remix

Here's a natural wonder-filled video for Apache Beat's "Another Day." After you watch the clip, directed by Cherise Payne, download this Aaron LaCrate remix. It's mostly handclaps and bassline, but it highlights the vocals, which work pretty well even without the noisy guitar build from the original. More »

Girl Crisis (The Ladies Of Chairlift, Class Actress, Apache Beat, Au Revoir Simone, Acrylics, Et Al) Cover Taylor Dayne (Stereogum Premiere)

Here it is, the latest installment from Girl Crisis, an all-female concept troupe operating on a specifically detailed concept. The idea behind it was to a) name themselves as a joke on Boy Crisis and b) exist only in web-video form featuring c) an essentially revolving cast of indie Brooklyn sirens that d) have nothing… More »

Siren Festival 2010 In Photos

Village Voice's annual Coney Island rock extravaganza turned 10 on Saturday and went down as sweaty and free as years past. Things kicked off with Dom in the early afternoon, and wrapped up many bottles of sunscreen later with Matt & Kim and Holy Fuck. In between: Ted Leo, Ponytail, Harlem, Pains Of Being Pure… More »

Apache Beat – “Another Day”

New York's Apache Beat are playing this weekend's Siren Festival. "Another Day" is a sample of what they'll bring to the show, and to their upcoming album Last Chants. You'll have to listen to all of the song to hear the change, but the guitars here transform from a Talking Heads-like naïve music… More »

CMJ ’09: Wednesday In Photos

As far as full-on noon-to-2AM marathon set hunting goes, Wednesday's spread won't be topped this year. In addition to bringing us memorable sets from two bands we'll be watching much more closely in Sleigh Bells and Golden Silvers, the day delivered solid lineups at every turn. I joined photographer Jessica Amaya at ForceField'… More »
