Hear Seltzer Boys (Suckers’ Austin Fisher, Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder, Delicate Steve, Al Carlson) In This Snowboarding Video

Next year, Suckers’ Austin Fisher, Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder, Delicate Steve’s Steve Marion and producer Al Carlson will put out a record as Seltzer Boys, a project borne of the group’s one-time live collaboration during a December 2011 stop at NYC experimental venue the Stone. In attendance happened to be pro snowboarder Lukas Huffman, who wa… More »

Suckers – “Turn On The Sunshine” Video (Feat. Das Racist’s Dapwell) (Stereogum Premiere)

Suckers’ “Turn On The Sunshine” is the sort of mild-euphoric/shambolic-pop nugget that the band nails at will, a standout from the Candy Salad LP released this spring. Its video is one for the memory banks as well, honoring the subtle and bright strains of psilocybin streaming through its heart with a handsomely hallucinating human who’… More »

Download Snacky Tunes, A Free Live Comp Feat. Frankie Rose, Suckers, Surfer Blood, Freelance Whales

The team that created the food-and-music minded IFC show Dinner With The Band are serving up Snacky Tunes Vol. 1, a free collection of live tracks recorded over the course of 68 some-odd installments of the similarly food-and-music minded web-radio show Snacky Tunes. I was going to reach out to Finger On The Pulse, the… More »

The 8 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we’ve got new videos from Scissor Sisters, Adele, Broken Social Scene, Suckers, and Fujiya & Miyagi. One thing I noticed about this week’s top five videos — they were all directed by foreign directors. I’m not sure why that is. There are also less videos since things are slowing down for the holidays. More »

Yeasayer + Suckers Cover Alanis, Live, Blind Melon, The ’90s

Williamsburg is a Camel cigarette, the new Bedford Ave. Duane Reade has a wine bar inside of it, the yuppies are part of the firmament. Along with the latest wave of high-end gentrification in this neighborhood comes the inevitable migration of its resident, and now transient, artist population. It happens. Brooklyn is a brand. But… More »

Suckers – “A Mind I Knew” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

BTW Suckers debut LP Wild Smile is an emotional, shambling, art-pop grab bag, one that we’ve recommended and that’s given us one video so far, for the stomping single “Black Sheep.” The next track getting the visual treatment is “A Mind I Knew.” Four visual treatments, actually. Each member of Suckers is turning in their… More »

Suckers – “Black Sheep” Video

The stomping, Modest Mouse gone Glasslands Wild Smile standout “Black Sheep” gets a Todd Yeager directed video and it’s exactly what a Suckers video should look like: colors and kitsch, green screens and ’80s VHS era visual tropes rendered in digital-rate resolution. The band’s wrapped a tour with Local Natives (dig the commemorative remix) and… More »

Local Natives – “Wide Eyes (Suckers Remix)”

Here’s a tour document of sorts, coming a month into Local Natives’ seven-week tour with Brooklyn’s Suckers. Both bands have had Yeasayer thrown out as reference points — Local Natives for their occasional dips into African rhythms, Suckers for their colorful and ebullient aesthetic and vocals (not to mention Anand Wilder’s production of their BTWMore »

Suckers Release Wild Smile Cover Art, Acoustic Bonus Tracks

When Suckers released their stomping, modestly Mouse-ing Wild Smile promo cut “Black Sheep,” we had a chance to detail a few of their forthcoming LP’s many finer points. It’s a great album, which deserves a great cover, and that primate whose face ostensibly is grinning and certainly is as colorful as any Quinn Walker photo… More »

Suckers – “Black Sheep”

After BK BTW Suckers’ super set at the IAMSOUND party our first night in Austin, the songs from their forthcoming Wild Smile would’ve stayed in my head as a hotel-room soundtrack even if someone hadn’t slipped their new record to me as I arrived at the airport the day before. But someone did do that,… 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 »

SXSW 2010: Wednesday In Photos

Here’s a tip if you’re going to one of these industry festival type things: If IAMSOUND is having a party, you should attend that party. Just like this past CMJ, the L.A.-based imprint owned their night, pulling together an eclectic lineup that showcased the right bands, all having a moment: Scott already posted some videoMore »

CMJ ’09: Thursday In Photos

On Thursday at CMJ the xx played theIr 66th and 67th shows of the week — one at the Apple Store SoHo, another as the “x-rated” secret guest at the horribly delayed, horribly sweaty Club NME showcase at the Delancey. The sound dudes couldn’t get it together, the subterranean, reverse-gradient pit is perfect for sweltering… 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’s day party… More »
