Simian Mobile Disco – “Fourteenth Principles”

On Simian Mobile Disco’s website, the dance duo is promising the imminent release of something called Unpatterns, which we can probably assume is a new album. And on their Soundcloud page, SMD have posted a quick two-minute instrumental called “Fourteenth Principles,” which sounds like an intro track and seems like it should be followed by… More »

Simian Mobile Disco – “Gizzard”

“Gizzard” is a track taken from Simian Mobile Disco’s forthcoming split with the techno outfit Psychotron. This audio comes from SMD’s recent stop in Annie Mac’s BBC1 radio show, where James Ford and Jas Shaw talk about their next record (“weirder … fuzzy, and psychedelic, and warmer”); “Gizzard” is not in it. You’ll find it… More »

The 10 Best Videos Of The Week

This week’s clips from Arcade Fire, Rokysopp, Simian Mobile Disco, No Joy, and White Lies show off what’s possible when your videos don’t have to fit particular television formats and time limits. The suburban dystopias in Rokysopp’s and Arcade Fire’s extended videos are a little long and a little much for TV, especially with the… More »

New Simian Mobile Disco (Feat. Beth Ditto) – “Cruel Intentions”

“Cruel Intentions” is Simian Mobile Disco’s Temporary Pleasure dance track with the Gossip’s Beth Ditto. Just a few days ago we heard the duo go “Off The Map” with Jamie Lidell. Before that Yeasayer’s Chris Keating helped James Ford and Jas Shaw represent their “Audacity Of Huge.” We’ve yet to hear the vocal turns of… More »

New Simian Mobile Disco (Feat. Jamie Lidell) – “Off The Map”

Sonic soul sorcerer Jamie Lidell says this collab cut, from Simian Mobile Disco’s forthcoming Temporary Pleasure LP, has been sitting in his vault with the title “Disco Fascist.” And with a hook that spells out the “D.I.S.C.O.,” why not turn it over to the UK beat mavens. The result of their joint tinkering is a… More »

New Simian Mobile Disco (Feat. Yeasayer’s Chris Keating) Video – “Audacity Of Huge”

Simian Mobile Disco’s second album Temporary Pleasure includes guest spots from Beth Ditto, Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, Gruff Rhys, Telepathe, and others. One of these others, Yeasayer’s Chris Keating, adds his pipes to the collection’s first single “Audacity Of Huge.” The words? A million and one references to pop culture, art, literature, etc: The title’… More »

New Simian Mobile Disco Video – “Synthesise”

When you go to see Simian Mobile Disco live, make sure you are seeing the “proper set” as opposed to the DJ set. You’ll likely get SMD tunes either way, but only one comes with a massive light rig and a billion knobs spread across towering audio equipment to provide you with visual comfort that… More »

Iceland Airwaves ’08 Report

Before we kick off the bulk of this week’s CMJ coverage, we’re gonna look all the way back to last week’s Iceland Airwaves Festival. Stereogum sent photog Abbey Braden overseas to take it all in. When not commiserating with locals about our countries’ financial crises, Abbey caught dozens of sets from familiar standbys (Fuck Buttons,… More »

SXSW: Stereogum’s Texas Music Trivia – Round 1

The people of Austin are nice enough to welcome thousands (and thousands) of vagabond music fans into their city for a few days each year, so we decided to pay their stomping ground homage with a friendly game of Texas Music Triva. Keeping the music theme airtight, we had our friend Shea Hess ask a… More »

SXSW: Wednesday In Photos

Welcome to our night one photo spread. Every year we forget that we can’t be in every place at once … until we wind up waiting in line for two hours. But at least for last night, the lines were so worth the wait. Our first proper showcase of this year’s fest came compliments of… More »

SXSW: Wednesday Featured Showcases

You don’t need us to tell you that if you want to see R.E.M. tonight you should have started lining up at Stubb’s two days ago. Also you know how big these SXSW crowds are getting every year. The best bet for the sake of your legs — and for the sake of not standing… More »

New Simian Mobile Disco – “Hustler” (Shackleton Remix)

You likely remember Simian Mobile Disco’s video for Attack Decay Sustain Release standout “Hustler.” You know, that game of telephone transformed into an all-girl make-out session, complete with some television interference and that one gal who can’t stop rocking out even amid the puckers? No? Hell, here it is again.

Now that… More »

Stereogum Does CMJ: Black Ghosts @ 200 Orchard (‘Sup Magazine Party)

While we were watching Voxtrot stretch into the wee at Bowery, Abbey Braden (who’s back and snapping shots to help us rove as many day parties, showcases, and afterparties as possible) made her way to 200 Orchard for ‘Sup Mag’s afterparty, featuring a set from Black Ghosts. Maybe you already know ‘em. Or… More »

New Celebration – “Hands Off My Gold (Ruby Beats Remix)”

We offered propers to Celebration for their big step-up album The Modern Tribe, so named for Katrina’s deep love for friends and musical collaborators. The afrobeat stomp/wicked chanting of “Hands Of Gold” are just one of the LP’s many highlights, and one of the best samples of Celebration’s collaborative spirit. The album cut of “Hand… More »

New Celebration Video – “Evergreen”

Last we checked in with Celebration was on the rainy, TV On The Radio McCarren Pool Sunday, when Katrina came out, matching Tunde hop for reverse-punching-bag-windmill and belting on “Wolf Like Me.” Time’s coming for the Baltimore trio to take the stage on their own again, though, with sophomore LP The Modern Tribe (so named,… More »

New Simian Mobile Disco – “3 Pin Din”

Thursday afternoon dance fix. Though a sign at stage front read “This is NOT our live show, we’re just DJing” during their appearance at P4K’s SXSW party, Simian Mobile Disco’s record-spinning set was one a fest highlight (crazy daytime drunkards dancing spastically to the big beats helped). And extending a bloglines grabbing stretch (producing Klaxo… More »

SXSW: Friday In Austin

Despite the excellent lineups all over town, our daylight hours on Friday had been spoken for well before we made the trek to SouthBy (and particularly after spending Thursday systematically missing a bunch of the acts we’d hoped to see); Pitchfork assembled a stellar bill at the Emo’s complex — including RJD2 (with… More »
