Bleached shares "Love Spells" music video for Halloween

BLEACHED SHARES "LOVE SPELLS" MUSIC VIDEO VIA THE FADER

RIDE YOUR HEART AVAILABLE NOW VIA DEAD OCEANS

Watch: "Love Spells" - http://youtu.be/pULd8HpFAMY

Bleached are proud to share a new music video for "Love Spells" which they made in honor of Halloween. The band is fresh off a tour that included gigs with Best Coast, White Lung, and The Men, but they return to the road for dates that include London Calling Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and The Weezer Cruise in the new year. Also, click here to visit The Fader for a picture of Jennifer and Jessie in Halloween costumes as children. Jennifer explains the concept of the video below. 

"Halloween and October are my favorite time of year so I was excited when I realized we had a month to put together a rad B-Horror style music video before Halloween gets here! So with the help of some amazing friends, and taking inspiration from our girl sunbathing in the graveyard shirt we got it all together. We made it past the obstacles like getting kicked out of our first filming location, leaving the next morning for our Europe tour, editing it on the road in the van, and keeping it all pretty DIY. Xoxo."  - Jennifer Clavin

Cate Le Bon - Mug Museum

Cate Le Bon - Mug Museum

Street Date, November 12th, 2013, Wichita Recordings



  
Cate Le Bon returns this Autumn with Mug Museum, perhaps her most beguiling and complete song cycle to date, which will be released November 12th on Wichita Recordings in North America and November 11th on The Elite Meat Supply (Turnstile) in the rest of the world.



Having finished live commitments for CYRK towards the end of 2012, Le Bon returned to Wales to write the songs that would become Mug Museum.The album is informed by a period of taking stock after a bereavement. "Following the death of my maternal Grandmother I felt a very palpable shift in the roles that we'd all become accustomed to within the female line of the family which, for the first time, had me mulling over the importance of my place and purpose within this female chain" says Le Bon "The album's theme emerged from and circulates around these maternal familial relationships and this period of a calm, lengthy, intent consideration in turn drew other relationships into the Mug Museum".

With Le Bon subsequently relocating to California, Mug Museum was recorded at the recently opened Seahorse Sound studios, Los Angeles. Produced by Noah Georgeson (who is perhaps best known for his work with Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart) and Josiah Steinbrick, Mug Museum is an album that lets in the sunlight and space and relocates the West Wales lilt in Le Bon's voice to an equally apposite West Coast setting. In the studio Le Bon assembled a band of friends from both continents such as multi-instrumentalists Sweet Baboo and H. Hawkline and Nick Murray from White Fence.

As well as describing the personnel involved in Mug Museum, 'Welsh - Californian' is a phrase that captures the album's sound: melodic, confident and wrapped in a hazy psychedelic gauze."I wrote the majority of the record in the home country but a few songs were finished out here in the run up to recording" says Le Bon "I'm sure Los Angeles has bled into the recordings somehow but exactly how I do not know".
Throughout Mug Museum Le Bon's voice changes register to both dramatic and emotional effect. This is beautifully exemplified on 'I Think I Knew', a duet with Perfume Genius, one of the album's most atmospheric tracks and one on which two distinctive personalities combine to produce a performance of rare alchemy. Click here to listen to and download the track from SoundCloud.

From the bewitching circular riff of the album's opener 'I Can't Help You' to the closing title track that sees Le Bon accompanied by piano and the occasional burst of double-tacked clarinet, Mug Museum's reflective song-writing weaves around a richly detailed framework. Like all museums it is a contemplative space, a personal world that is open to everyone.As these ten songs attest Mug Museum is also a unique and dreamlike edifice, created by an artist at the height of her powers.

Sacred Bones celebrates 100 releases by unveiling lost LP

SACRED BONES CELEBRATES 100 RELEASES WITH LOST LP FROM NYC POST-PUNKS THE HUNT
STREAM A TRACK VIA PITCHFORK

Sacred Bones Records is proud to be celebrating 100 releases by unveiling the lost LP from The Hunt,The Hunt Begins
 
The first ever release on Sacred Bones was a 7" from The Hunt. The band was formed by Jasper McGandy & Christian Kount (both now members of Cult of Youth) in 2007. They crafted a unique style of post-punk influenced by The Southern Death Cult and New Model Army. The artwork for their first release depicted an androgynous wild banshee wearing warpaint, clad all in leather and animal bones, holding a sacrificial knife pointed at the sky. This debut single was The Hunt’s lone statement.
 
The Hunt played tons of shows including some of the first Wierd Records parties at Home Sweet Home in NYC, they did a few short tours and in then 2009 after multiple tumultuous attempts at recording a full length The Hunt decamped to their collective hometown, Boston, to record the ultimate document of their time on earth. Buses begat buses, couches begat couches, and slowly the songs began to come together as they should have all these passing years. On the edge of perfection their time was cut short and they disbanded. Leaving this document shelved for years. 
 
Now, four years after it was recorded & shelved, The Hunt Begins will finally see the light of day in honor of both the first and one hundredth release on Sacred Bones Records, we will finally see and hear the toils of New York’s most enigmatic post punk band of recent.  

The Hunt will play one final show in celebration of the release of "The Hunt Begins" on November 20th at Home Sweet Home in NYC for the Nothing Changes party. 

Stream "Fifteen Minutes" off of The Hunt Begins & pre-order the album below!

Tennis-Pitchfork Premieres Exclusive EP

PITCHFORK PREMIERES EXCLUSIVE EP STREAM OF TENNIS’ SMALL SOUND

OUT NOVEMBER 5 ON COMMUNION RECORDS
FALL TOUR DATE STARTS NOVEMBER 3
 
Pitchfork EP Stream of Small Sound HERE
 

 “Tennis have broadened their horizons just the right amount, adding rock’n’roll muscle and a more purely pop clarity.” Pitchfork
“Their dreamy, nostalgic pop laps and recedes like waves hitting the shore.”—The New York Times
“The group turns up the volume and starts downright rocking.”—TIME

Celebrated Denver based husband and wife duo Tennis return with Small Sound, a new EP out November 5.Pitchfork has premiered an exclusive stream of the EP that can be heard HERE.
 
Tennis will be the headline act on the November run of Communion’s monthly club night series in nine cities with additional performances in several markets including Chicago, Toronto and their beloved Denver. The band will kick off their run of dates with a November 3 performance at the “School Night” show at Brooklyn Bowl.
 
Small Sound follows their much lauded previous full length efforts, 2011’s Cape Dory and 2012’s Young and Old. Four of the tracks were produced by Richard Swift (Foxygen, The Shins, The Mynabirds) with the fifth track “Cured of Youth” produced by Jim Eno (Spoon, Polica, Gayngs). The band inked a new deal with Communion Records and will return to the studio to work on new music for a Spring 2014 full length album. Small Sound will be made available as a limited 10” vinyl release, as well as CD and digital formats—all of which can be purchased via pre-order directly from the band’s website, www.tennis-music.com.
 
Tennis was born Aliana Moore and Patrick Riley’s nearly seven-month sailing trip. Upon returning home, the duo began writing music together as a way to document the history of their shared experience. The result was Cape Dory, an intimate and concise recollection of life on a 30-foot sloop.
 
Moore and Riley followed Cape Dory with Young and Old, which The New York Times called “striking indie-pop” and The New Yorker described as “winsome as it is ebullient.” The album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart, #1 on CMJ Top 200, where it remained for three weeks in a row and debuted on Soundscan’s “New Artist Chart” at #1, remaining there for nine consecutive weeks. The band performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Conan” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.”

Black Lips release Middle East tour film

BLACK LIPS TO RELEASE KIDS LIKE YOU & ME, A MIDDLE EAST TOUR FILM
ANNOUNCE FILM SCREENINGS AND LIVE TOUR

In 2009, The Black Lips started investigating the possibility of a bridge building tour of the Middle East with stops throughout the region. After two years of planning, several uprisings, a civil war, the tour finally came to fruition in the fall of 2012. It wasn't easy either. Promoters in Jordan and Alexandria, Egypt backed out at the last minute because the band had played shows in Israel and a show in Erbil, Iraq had to be changed when an explicit video of the band was viewed by a government official. Suprisingly, It all worked out in the end though and the shows in Alexandria and Erbil turned out to be highlights of the tour.
  
Kids Like You & Me: A Middle East Tour Film documents this journey through one of the most exciting regions in the world including three groundbreaking stops in Egypt. (The last known American rock band to play Egypt being The Grateful Dead in 1978!) Get on the bus with The Black Lips and their good friends, Lebanese indie rockers, Lazzy Lung. See the people of the Middle East the way they really are. Shopkeepers and restaurant owners. Skaters, graffiti artists and musicians. Revolutionaries and dreamers. Kids like you and me. You'll never look at the Middle East the same way after seeing this film.  

The Atlanta Film Festival premiered the screening on October 27th.

GOLDFRAPP - 'TALES OF US' SPECIAL BOX SET



‘TALES OF US’ SPECIAL BOX SET

ALISON GOLDFRAPP CURATES LOWRY EXHIBITION

‘LATER WITH JOOLS’ & JIMMY FALLON PERFORMANCES

LIVE FROM MAIDA VALE

EUROPEAN TOUR


Goldfrapp have announced details of a very special box set version of their top five album ‘Tales Of Us’, which was described by The Guardian as a “mesmerising soundscape’, ‘intoxicatingly vital’ by Metro and ‘luxuriant’ by The Independent.

In addition to the regular version of ‘Tales Of Us’ the box set also comes with a bonus CD containing a selection of remixes and live performances of album tracks, including three tracks recorded at this year’s stunning Manchester International Festival, complete with orchestra and choir.

Remixes include one from Will Gregory (who has created a Moog version of Stranger). The bonus disc also contains an extract of the soundtrack to Sam Taylor Wood’s film about John Lennon, ‘Nowhere Boy’, written and performed by Goldfrapp.

The box also contains a DVD with Tales Of Us in 5.1 surround sound, a documentary of the making of Tales Of Us and the breathtaking short films for Drew and Annabel.  Watch the film for ‘Annabel’ here: http://youtu.be/-Vnk_j1iKMA

Completing the box is a beautiful 40 page hardback book compiled by Alison with exclusive images from ‘Tales Of Us’, the vinyl album with gatefold sleeve and poster plus a 12" lithographic print.

Goldfrapp have been performing tracks from ‘Tales Of Us’ live in a series of TV broadcasts around the world including ‘Later With Jools Holland’ on the BBC and ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ on NBC in New York. Performances from ‘Later’ can be seen at www http://youtu.be/JfUE7y5A4Fg and ‘Fallon’ at http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/blogs/2013/09/goldfrapp-performs-their-song-drew/

The TV performances precede the band’s forthcoming sold-out European tour, which includes a UK headline show at Hammersmith Apollo on 1 November.


In the interim the band have just performed for BBC 6Music ‘Live at Maida Vale’ in a live session for the Lauren Laverne show highlights of which can be heard at http://www.bbc.co.uk/events/eqp8q9

Meanwhile Alison Goldfrapp has been busy curating her first ever art exhibition which opened at The Lowry gallery in Salford at the weekend and runs through to next March. This is the first exhibition within The Lowry¹s new ‘Performer As Curator’ series which sees artwork selected from international collections by Alison. The exhibition offers a glimpse into her personal inspirations - through the painters, filmmakers, illustrators and photographers who have shaped her inimitable artistic vision. This diverse and high profile selection of works will portray the artist¹s fascination with folklore and the noir through traditional and contemporary artworks by internationally renowned artists including Anna Fox, John Thezaker, Jan Pienkowski, Anya Gallaccio and Hans Bellmer. The Independent called the show an “opportunity to get inside the mind of an undeniably serious talent… Enjoyably disturbing.”
