Pattern Is Movement – “Climb To Me” (Stereogum Premiere)

Pattern Is Movement are always exploring interesting new sounds (and putting out awesome covers), and judging from this new single, their upcoming self-titled album will keep that going. "Climb To Me" is surprising in how it throws itself in so many directions without ever seeming to spread itself thin. Throughout the song, the… More »

The 10 Best Indie Rock Beyoncé Covers

It's going to be impossible to claim that Beyoncé Knowles has "quietly" put together a vicious song catalog, stocked with everything from heart-wrenching ballads to shamelessly fun bangers, but she has done it without some of the fanfare associated with other pop stars. And, you know, the musical work is stellar; it make… More »

Pattern Is Movement – “Light Of The World”

It's been a minute since we've heard from Pattern Is Movement, last seen jamming with the Roots and D'Angelo at Brooklyn Bowl late in 2009, or turning in another of their inspired covers (check their Daytrotter version of "Crazy In Love," and their title-track contribution to our own Enjoyed comp). But new… More »

Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Rock

We've seen indie rockers reach out to hip-hop's most recognizable collective (or at least the most recognizable hip-hop collective to indie rockers). But lately, it's been Wu-Tang Clan making the moves. This week Judgment Night 2009 is in full force, with genres meshing again and RZA, GZA, and company at the heart of it. Of… More »

Broken Social Scene And Land Of Talk Join For “7/4 (Shoreline)” At NYU

Well not all of Land Of Talk -- and as is generally the case, not all of Broken Social Scene. Last minute distractions kept me from hitting the Mystery Concert semester kickoff party at NYU (featuring BSS, Pattern Is Movement, and the French Kicks) last night, but Pop Tarts Suck Toasted made it to… More »

New Pattern Is Movement Live Video – “Sound Of Your Voice”

Man, how good is Pattern Is Movement? I get the sense that far too few people have seen or heard much from the experimental Philly duo. People should change that.

5. Pattern Is Movement – “Enjoy”

Pattern Is Movement On "Enjoy" "Björk's music informs nearly every one of Pattern is Movement's songs.

Quit Your Day Job: Pattern Is Movement

Philadelphia duo Pattern Is Movement are about to release their unclassifiable third album All Together. Looking too deeply into childhood influences can get dicey, but maybe some of Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward's excellently unique sound came from their beginnings: They both grew up in "strict" Pentecostal households and met as teens while part of… More »
