VIDEO : King Krule - "Biscuit Town"





(photo by Charlotte Pattmore)

Today King Krule releases a music video for "Biscuit Town," the opening track from his Mercury Prize nominated album 'The OOZ'. The video comes as the first of a three-part collaboration with WeTransfer, which sees King Krule explore the creative process with each video’s director, hosted on their WePresent platform. Directed by friends and long-term collaborators cc. Wade (aka Michael and Paraic Morrissey), the video sees King Krule (aka Archy Marshall) inhabiting his own noir "Biscuit Town” — waking up and retracing his footsteps through the city, piecing together the remnants of a hazy, half-remembered night before. A reflection of his futuristic, jazz-inflected, film-inspired sound, the video serves to compliment the warm, dreamlike quality of "Biscuit Town."

Coming November 9 : boygenius






(photo : Lera Pentelute)

The rumors are true: boygenius, the band of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus will release their self-titled EP debut on November 9th on Matador. The illustrious trio is comprised of the most exciting and visionary young songwriters in independent rock, whose critically acclaimed albums were all released in the past year ('Turn Out The Lights', 'Stranger In The Alps', and 'Historian', respectively). To celebrate today’s announcement, boygenius has released a captivating triumvirate of new songs titled “Stay Down,” “Me & My Dog,” and “Bite The Hand,” which can be heard HERE.

Baker and Bridgers will hit the road in North America this fall for a co-headline tour, with Dacus opening. Each artist will play her own individual set of tunes, but fans just might be able to hear some boygenius songs along the way – though that’s another rumor we can’t yet confirm. The tour kicks off at Nashville’s  Ryman Auditorium on November 4th, and hits major markets in the Northeast, Midwest, and West Coast, culminating at The Wiltern in LA on November 30. The full list of tour dates, as well as each individual artist’s itinerary, can be found below.

Algiers - New US Dates This Autumn



photo : Tatjana Rüegsegger

It would be the height of exaggeration to say Algiers' nearly two years on the road in support of 'The Underside Of Power' is unprecedented. For instance, Thirty Seconds To Mars hold a Guinness World Record for an 309 show jaunt between 2009 and 2010 which you have to admit is an awful lot of effort simply to avoid people who wanted refunds after renting "Chapter 27" on DVD. But that unfortunate example aside, Algiers' nearly two years on the road in support of 'The Underside Of Power' has firmly solidified their status as one of the most electrifying & provocative live bands on this or any other circuit and if you don't agree after attending one of these shows, I will personally refund the cost of your ticket*

( * - DISCLAIMER :  Algiers headlining shows only, refund requests must be received within 45 minutes of the end of Algiers set and must include a PDF or JPG of your ticket stub & credit card statement, and a notarized affidavit including the signatures of two witnesses who can attest you watched the entire set and weren't just fucking around on your phone the whole time.  Offer not valid in the states of Maryland, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire or the District of Columbia.)

VIDEO : Kurt Vile - "Loading Zones"





This morning, we're pleased to present the Kurt Vile video, “Loading Zones,” the first new music to surface from him since 2015. Directed by Drew Saracco, the video is a paean to Kurt's City of Brotherly Love, and a farcical tribute to the song’s lyrics, a loose account of his peculiar parking strategy. Law enforcement is played by Kevin Corrigan and Matt Korvette.

Kurt and The Violators (Rob Laakso, Kyle Spence, and Jesse Trbovich) hit the road this fall on an extensive global tour. Tickets are on-sale now for the full world tour, which commences in Hamburg, Germany on October 12th. The North American leg, where fans can expect a further taste of new music in addition to the band’s iconic catalogue, kicks off on November 24th in Boston. The band has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 per ticket sold will go to support the ACLU’s work defending and protecting our individual rights and liberties.  The full list of tour dates can be found below.

VIDEO : Iceage - "Under The Sun"



Following a seven-week US tour on the heels of the recent release of their new album, Beyondless, Iceage have shared a new video for album stand-out track, “Under The Sun.” The video was filmed in Tokyo during their ‘Opening Nights’ residencies, which was an inter-continental exhibition that saw Iceage collaborating with their favorite visual artists (also staged in NYC and LA).

Directed by XXX, the “Under The Sun” video features the vibrant, eye-catching floral designs of renowned flower sculptor, Azuma Makoto, who handpicked Iceage for his flower-music installation series titled “Crazy Garden x Iceage.” The band’s darkly beautiful and chaotic live performance is an unexpected, yet fitting, foil to the delicate blooms

(stream/order 'Beyondless')



After a North American co-headline tour with The Black Lips in November, Iceage will return to London for a special performance at the Hackney Arts Centre on December 7th, with Helm and Astrid Sonne opening, and set design by Christian Friedlander. The full list of tour dates can be found below.
