Cymbals Eat Guitars – “Warning” Video

The members of the New York indie rock band Cymbals Eat Guitars don’t appear in their video for “Warning,” the wound-up fuzzblast from their great LOSE album. Instead, the fresh-faced kids from the British band Crosshair lip-sync the song in a bedroom. It’s a impeccably shot, relentlessly adorable piece of filmmaking. Matthew Reed directs. Check… More »

Cymbals Eat Guitars – “Laramie” Video

Last week, the New York indie rock band Cymbals Eat Guitars released their titanic, surging, beautiful album LOSE, and if it had been up against anything less monstrous than Ty Segall’s Manipulator, it would’ve been Album Of The Week for sure. The album is built out of overdriven guitar and unrestrained emotion, and the band’… More »

Stream Cymbals Eat Guitars LOSE

Later this month, the Staten Island indie rock band Cymbals Eat Guitars will release LOSE, their grand, expansive, generally awesome new album. The LP is inspired by the death of a guy who was friends with the band, but the LP doesn’t sound depressive or numbed. Instead, it’s huge and alive and bursting with melody… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

This week’s 5 Best Songs cover a pretty big age range, career-wise. We’ve got the old guard still kicking ass and taking names (in a really pretty, gentle way), a relatively young band taking a step forward, and — perhaps most excitingly — the top three slots are all taken by artists who have yet… More »

Cymbals Eat Guitars – “Warning”

LOSE, the forthcoming album from the Staten Island old-school indie rock guitar maulers Cymbals Eat Guitars, is shaping up to be something really special. We’ve posted the early tracks “Jackson” and “Chambers,” and both of them rule. And now the band has shared the wracked, speeding-out-of-control new one “Warning,” and it rules just as hard. More »

TV Party: Cymbals Eat Guitars Talk The Real Housewives Of New York City

Cymbals Eat Guitars is a frenetic, emotional, catchy, wildly great band from New York City. The Real Housewives Of New York City is a frenetic, emotional, catchy, wildly — well, ah — wild reality show from New York City (and the mind of Bravo’s Andy Cohen). It’s enough to make you think, “Man, can thi… More »

Q&A: Cymbals Eat Guitars’ Joe D’Agostino Opens Up About The Pain Behind LOSE + “Chambers” (Stereogum Premiere)

There’s a moment early on in LOSE, the third album from Cymbals Eat Guitars, that immediately leaps out. Frontman and lyricist Joe D’Agostino describes his best friend looking like David Bowie on Soul Train, a reference that’s strikingly similar to one of the many memories recounted on Sun Kil Moon’s Benji. On Soul Train, Bowie… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Music has the ability to communicate a wide emotional spectrum, and this week’s 5 Best Songs do just that. Whether it be Porter Robinson giving us some anthemic waves of synth, or Cam’ron going in on a vintage Dipset banger, the emotions translated this week tend to be chill-inducing. Fucked Up growls about drinking sangria… More »

Cymbals Eat Guitars – “Jackson”

Today New York band Cymbals Eat Guitars announced their third album, LOSE, and from the sound of it, frontman Joseph D’Agostino has a lot to get out. That’s because LOSE was written and recorded (with longtime Dinosaur Jr. producer John Agnello still pretty fresh off Kurt Vile’s incredible Wakin On A Pretty Daze) as a… More »

Last year, New York indie heart-on-sleevers Cymbals Eat Guitars released their Lenses Alien album, recruiting legendary indie producer John Agnello to man the boards. And today, they’ve got a spare track called “Hawk Highway” for us, with Agnello once again twiddling knobs. Download it below. More »

Cymbals Eat Guitars – “Definite Darkness” Video

The video for “Definite Darkness,” a triumphant guitar-rager from Staten Island ’90s-indie revivalists Cymbals Eat Guitars, consists entirely of footage from some sort of drill-team tryout. In the fuzzy vintage imagery, we see huge choreographed routines, emotional reactions to news of cuts, and the visceral difficulty of maintaining a rictus smile for a long period… More »

Under The Influence: Cymbals Eat Guitars Lenses Alien

Despite the fact that they’re really young, Staten Island indie rockers Cymbals Eat Guitars are already the masters of grandiose, guitar-driven rock. On their new LP, Lenses Alien, they push it a little further into a bigger, bolder direction. Take “Rifle Eyesight (Proper Name),” for example. Or “Definite Darkness.” Lead singer Joseph D’Agostino and bassist… More »

Cymbals Eat Guitars – “Definite Darkness”

At just under five minutes, “Definite Darkness” is a full 3:30 shorter than the expansive and muscular, shoegazy indie rock epic “Rifle Eyesight (Proper Name).” But just under five minutes is still plenty long, long enough that Cymbals Eat Guitars veer through myriad ideas, vocal and guitar layers, transitions. It’s the second promo MP3 i… More »

Progress Report: Cymbals Eat Guitars

Name: Cymbals Eat Guitars
Progress Report: Psych-pop freakologists go for an even bigger sound on sophomore release, Lenses Alien.

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 »
