Coming February 16 : Car Seat Headrest - 'Twin Fantasy' ; "Nervous Young Inhumans" Video Premiere




(photo credit : Dos Rios Films)



Car Seat Headrest fans, new and old alike, will be elated to learn that Will Toledo’s 2011’s Bandcamp masterpiece, 'Twin Fantasy', has been re-recorded and re-imagined for release on February 16th (*pre-order breakdown below). With a seven-piece band in tow (including members of Naked Giants), Car Seat Headrest will bring its explosive and live show to Australia, Europe, and select West Coast cities through the first half of 2018, with a full US tour to be announced at a later date.

Today’s album announcement comes with the release of “Nervous Young Inhumans” and its accompanying video, which can be seen above. It is a frenetic, anthemic, split-screen choreographed crescendo, and the result of Toledo’s visionary work as a first-time director.

Toledo always knew he would return to 'Twin Fantasy'. He never did complete the work. Not really. Never could square his grand ambitions against his mechanical limitations. Listen to his first attempt, recorded at nineteen on a cheap laptop, and you’ll hear what Brian Eno fondly calls “the sound of failure” - thrilling, extraordinary, and singularly compelling failure. Will’s first love, rendered in the vivid teenage viscera of stolen gin, bruised shins, and weird sex, was an event too momentous for the medium assigned to record it.

Even so, even awkward and amateurish, 'Twin Fantasy' is deeply, truly adored. Legions of reverent listeners carve rituals out of it: sobbing over “Famous Prophets,” making out to “Cute Thing,” dancing their asses off as “Bodys” climbs higher, higher. The distortion hardly matters. You can hear him just fine. You can hear everything. And you can feel everything: his hope, his despair, his wild overjoy. He’s trusting you - plural you, thousands of you - with the things he can’t say out loud. “I pretended I was drunk when I came out to my friends,” he sings - and then, caught between truths, backtracks: “I never came out to my friends. We were all on Skype, and I laughed and changed the subject.”

You might be imagining an extended diary entry, an angsty transmission from a bygone LiveJournal set to power chords and cranked to eleven. You would be wrong. 'Twin Fantasy'is not a monologue. 'Twin Fantasy' is a conversation. "You know," he sings, "that I’m mostly singing about you." This is Will’s greatest strength as a songwriter ; he spins his own story, but he’s always telling yours, too. Between nods to local details - Harper’s Ferry, The Yellow Wallpaper, the Monopoly board collecting dust in his back seat - he leaves room for the fragile stuff of your own life, your own loves. From the very beginning, alone in his bedroom, in his last weeks of high school, he knew he was writing anthems. Someday, he hoped, you and I might sing these words back to him.

“It was never a finished work,” Toledo says, “and it wasn’t until last year that I figured out how to finish it.”
He has, now, the benefit of a bigger budget, a full band in fine form, and endless time to tinker. According to him, it took eight months of mixing just to get the drums right. But this is no shallow second take, sanitized in studio and scrubbed of feeling. This is the album he always wanted to make. It sounds the way he always wanted it to sound.

It’s been hard, stepping into the shoes of his teenage self, walking back to painful places. There are lyrics he wouldn’t write again, an especially sad song he regards as an albatross. But even as he carries the weight of that younger, wounded Toledo, he moves forward. He grows. He revises, gently, the songs we love so much. In the album’s final moments, in those “apologies to future me’s and you’s,” there is more forgiveness than fury.

This, Toledo says, is the most vital difference between the old and the new: he no longer sees his own story as a tragedy.

Lucy Dacus - 'Historian', Coming March 2, "Night Shift" Premiere






(photo by Dustin Condren)

On March 2, Matador is releasing the hotly anticipated 2nd album from Richmond, VA's Lucy Dacus, 'Historian', the followup to her unanimously hailed 2016 debut, 'No Burden' that established her as one of modern music's top new voices & songwriters.   The album's first single, "Night Shift", can be heard above.

'Historian' is a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent that finds Dacus unafraid to take on the big questions — the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It's a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos.

Dacus and her band recorded the album in Nashville last March, re-teaming with 'No Burden' producer Collin Pastore, and mixed it a few months later with John Congleton. The sound they created, with substantial input from multi-instrumentalist and live guitarist Jacob Blizard, is far richer and fuller than the debut — an outward flowering of dynamic, living, breathing rock and roll. Dacus' remarkable sense of melody and composition are the driving force throughout, giving 'Historian' the immersive feel of an album made by an artist in full command of her powers, on a new level of truth-telling and melodic grace.

The past year, with its electoral disasters and other assorted heartbreaks, has been a rough one for many of us, Dacus included. She found solace in crafting a thoughtful narrative arc for Historian, writing a concept album about cautious optimism in the face of adversity, with thematic links between songs that reveal themselves on repeat listens — touching on everything from systemic racism to creative burnout to the death of her grandmother. "It starts out dark and ends hopeful, but it gets darker in between; it goes to the deepest, darkest, place and then breaks," she explains. "What I'm trying to say throughout the album is that hope survives, even in the face of the worst stuff."

Global touring in support of 'Historian' kicks off  on release date at Brooklyn's Music Hall Of Williamsburg.  The album is available for preorder now on the format of your choice.

Tracklist :

1. Night Shift
2. Addictions
3. The Shell
4. Nonbeliever
5. Yours & Mine
6. Body To Flame
7. Timefighter
8. Next Of Kin
9. Pillar Of Truth

(photo by Jacob Blickenstaff)

On the heels of selling out all 8 nights at NYC's Bowery Ballroom for their most-certainly-on-again Hanukkah Residency, Yo La Tengo have confirmed a long list of North American shows below (new gigs in bold). Much like the previously announced European tour, you are free to speculate whether or not these shows may or may not have something or other to do with new recordings that are typically played on turntables, compact disc machinery, car stereos, telephones, etc. Though we shall not confirm or deny anything of the sort, we are powerless (sadly) to stop you from wondering out loud just what's happening.

VIDEO: "The Way You Used To Do" (directed by Jonas Akerlund), Ellen Performance Announced

The music video for "The Way You Used To Do" is officially out worldwide today. This might be old news to you if you have an Apple Music account or are some kind of hacker where no paywalls can stop you.



Follow the band on YouTube HERE.

Buy/stream Villains HERE.

When the Jonas Akerlund-directed (and Josh Homme-dancedhisassoff) video was first released back in August, Villians had yet to be released. At this point the band has been around the world touring nonstop, and they don't have any plans to slow down. (I broke a sweat typing all the tour dates below, just imagine how they feel.)

In other news, Queens of the Stone Age will be back on television, this time appearing on Ellen on December 14th. Check your local listings for specific air times and get it on your calendar.
