FYF Fest 2011 In Photos

FYF Fest, which has had issues with security and crowds in previous years, seems to have moved past those problems and evolved into a healthier, happier festival. Standout sets included Girls, who played heavily from their upcoming Father, Son, Holy Ghost, buzzbuilders Purity Ring and steady, show-those-tikes-how-it’s-done vets like Guided By Voices and the Descendents.

No Age Cover The Urinals, Play With Black Flag

In case you forgot, No Age are keen punk/underground fans/historians. For starters, the Los Angeles duo covered the Urinals “Male Masturbation” for the aptly titled Beat LA, a compilation featuring current L.A. groups like Best Coast, Crystal Antlers, etc., taking on songs from bands of the city’s past. In that vein, original Black Flag vocalist… More »

Dunes – “Tied Together” Video

Here’s a video from Dunes, the LA trio featuring ex-Mika Miko member Kate Hall. The affiliation is relevant for purposes of fingering their track “Tied Together”‘s sound — female-fronted post-punk with less spike, more wooze — and the cameos in its iPhone-cam video, a Google+ circle’s worth of friends from Mika Miko’s old Smell-y scene… More »

80 Other Bands With Official Sneakers

Last week the Animal Collective bros released an official mixtape for their new … sneakers. That is a thing now. Gotta keep fans on their toes (ouch, sorry). The shoes which you can see here benefit the Socorro island Conservation Fund, and they are cruelty free, except to your eyes.

I did some… More »

The 8 Best Videos Of The Week

The best videos this week include new clips from Sleigh Bells, Cloud Nothings, Talib Kweli, No Age, and Warm Ghost. It’s too bad Sleigh Bells’ video didn’t come out last week — it would have fit the theme of inter-band violence. Maybe being in a two-person band means you can only take your anger out… More »

Crystal Castles – “Baptism (No Age Remix)”

This No Age remix of “Baptism” from Crystal Castles’ second self-titled album sounds like the version of “Baptism” you’d find on Dean and Randy’s forthcoming Everything In Between. If you’ve heard “Glitter,” “Inflorescence,” or “Life Prowler” you’ll know what I mean. If not, think about a fuzzy, ambient, propulsive, dark-side-of-the-boom-box moment on some past No… More »

No Age – “Life Prowler” Preview

“Live Prowler” is the opening track on No Age’s forthcoming Everything In Between. Randy Randall created this video teaser using the song as its soundtrack. And tease it does. Get pumped. More »

No Age – “Glitter” & “Inflorescence”

No Age recently announced their next album, Everything in Between, and now you can sample it via swooning first single “Glitter.” It’ll be out on 7- and 10-inch on August 24. Both come with non-album tracks: the 12-inch has “In Rebound” and “Vision II,” and the 7-inch has “Inflorescence.” Listen to both “Glitter” and “Inflorescence”… More »

Cap’n Jazz, No Age, Lightning Bolt, TheDeathSet @ JellyNYC Brooklyn Bowl Party 7/25/10

Sunday’s scheduled free show, bringing the temporarily reunited emo heroes of Cap’n Jazz to the East River Waterfront in Williamsburg for an inspired bill along with No Age, Lightning Bolt, and the Death Set, went from being a pleasant plan to an amazing race: rain forced the relocation of the event to the lanes of… More »

No Age Get Beat Up In Lisbon

No Age are in Lisbon on their way to the Primavera Sound festival in Spain. Unfortunately Dean Spunt will be nursing injuries when they get there. He, along with some of the band’s friends (Randy Randall stayed in for the night) were jumped by bouncers at a Lisbon club that said they didn’t want “English”… More »

SXSW 2010: The Wrap Up

We saw a bunch of bands this past week. Not every set was memorable, but there were more than enough highlights to make the stiff necks and barking feet worth it. Here’s Wednesday, Thursday, Gibbarday, and SXSW’s metal shows, and more. This last post contains our notes, and photos from our intrepid photographers — RyanMore »

Meat Is Murder Turns 25

When I was in high school I had a Meat Is Murder t-shirt. The one with the lyrics to the album’s title track on the front: “It’s not natural, normal or kind / The flesh you so fancifully fry / The meat in your mouth / As you savor the flavor / Of murder,” etc. More »

The 25 69 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2010

This year in music was great and we’rea gonna let it finish (sorry), but in terms of notable album releases the ship has sailed. No offense, 30 Seconds To Mars. While the Gummys’ virtual poll booth remains open for a few more days (did we mention filling out the ballot enters you to win the… More »

Pixies/No Age @ Hollywood Palladium, Los Angeles 11/4/09

When Kim Deal’s not singing through a distorted mic with sister Kelley in an elaborate Mayan World Series in Brooklyn, she’s back in the fold with the reunited Pixies. The group hit the Palladium in Los Angeles (for the first of three nights) to launch their nine-city 20th Anniversary Doolittle tour. Speaking of distortion, No… More »

New No Age Video – “Losing Feeling”

Gil Kenan directs this video for “Losing Feeling,” the title song from No Age’s EP released this year. Dean and Randy wrap the track’s underlying urgency in a luminous gauze, a cool effect that gets visualized by frantically chopped editing of mice running loose through the city. But it’s not all just manic, citymouse-POV camerawork… More »

Stereogum Spends The Weekend At ATP NY

ATP was the year’s finest festival. We’ve already covered that. But the band performances are only half the (All Tomorrow’s) party. For a weekend, the mountain resort that inspired Dirty Dancing is a surreal estate, overrun by music-heads and artists; everyone’s in the same boat (some literally in boats), enjoying the same kitschy diversions. You’ll… More »

ATP NY 2009: Wayne’s World

Our second year at Kutsher’s was rainier than the first, but that didn’t matter so much to us or, seemingly, the other attendees: If anything, this year felt more celebratory (and debauched) than 2008. You wouldn’t be faulted for noting a certain hippie vibe. Visually, there were the tie-dyed shirts and hoodies (purchased at the… More »
