Deerhoof release Family of Others Video

October 22, 2008

Maybe I would have stayed in science class if it had had an appropriate soundtrack.  It was pretty satisfying once I got the microscope properly focused…. the only problem was that from the 8th grade until my sophomore year in college all I got was a pinkish blur.  Maybe it wasn’t so much that I decided to leave the sciences but that the administrative powers that be wouldn’t let me continue.  Whatever, now I have this kick ass blog so who’s laughing now.  *sound of laughter turning into pitiful weeping*

That’s enough of that, here’s “Family of Others” set in the majestic world of the Petri dish. Directed by Sara Magenheimer and Eben Portnoy of Flying; who, incidentally, are touring with Deerhoof now.

The Sword Premier New Video, Hit The Road With Metallica

October 20, 2008

I first heard about The Sword because Conrad Keely from …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead championed them and did their album covers.  So generally whenever I hear about these guys I pretty much just think of them as those dudes that have Keely album covers but they’ve been so active recently that it’s probably going to be impossible for me to do that again and I’ll probably have to apologize for being so dismissive.  Now though they’ll probably end up being inextricably tied to my birthday as they start a huge media push on the 21st (aka tomorrow) including a massive tour including supporting dates for Metallica and video premier for “How Heavy This Axe” on MTV2 and discussed on the Headbangers Ball 20th anniversary show.

Here’s all the tour info Read the rest of this entry »

Dears Release Two Tracks off Forthcoming Missiles, Tour w/ Secret Machines

September 24, 2008

Montreal’s favorite Smiths fanatics The Dears have released a new song, the energetic and decidedly unmilitary, “Money Babies” off of their new album Missiles, which will be seeing release October 21st (irrelevant stereocache fact: my birthday) courtesy of Dangerbird Records.  But wait, theeere’s more.  You can check out “Meltdown in A Major” at their Myspace and head over to the ultra cool Wired site to hear their exclusive stream of my favorite track so far, “Berlin Heart.”  They are really spreading this album out over the internet.  It’s like an album scavenger hunt where each site shows a different aspect of the album.  And the lesson here is that Canadians are crafty.  Happy hunting cache-ites.

Ryan Adams and The Cardinals Tracklisting, Tour Dates

September 23, 2008

Prolific blogger and musician, avid comic collector, courtney love feuder and Mandy Moore dater Ryan Adams is all set to release his newest endeavor with The Cardinals descriptively titled Cardinology.  Apparently we are to study this album, or maybe this album is a study of the cardinals.  I’m not exactly sure what’s going on here.  The album will hit stores on October 28 on Lost Highway.  Alot of blogs out there have taken issue with the artwork and wonder if its even the final cover but with the album on the way so soon I would have to guess that this is or at least was intended as the actual cover.

Cardinology Tracklist:

1.  Born Into A Light
2.  Go Easy
3.  Fix It
4.  Magick
5.  Let Us Down Easy
6.  Crossed Out Name
7.  Natural Ghost
8.  Sink Ships
9.  Evergreen
10.  Like Yesterday
11.  Stop

The band will be touring behind the album starting September 25th with a pause to appear on Letterman on the 29th. Click for more info. Read the rest of this entry »

Jaguar Love, Polysics, Black Gold To Tour

September 17, 2008

Pretty Girls Make Graves and Blood Brothers alums Jay Clark, Johnny Whitney and Cody Votolato are hitting the road as Jaguar Love and they’re bringing friends.  Jaguar Love will be joined by Japanese synth punkers Polysics and the more harmonious Black Gold out of Brooklyn.  Should be interesting as both PGMG and Blood Brothers gained most of their dynamic out of sonic conflict, be it dueling guitars or screaming vocalists.  We’ll see what happens when neither has anyone pushing back on them.  dates after the jump.
