"No band is an island. Felt like one sometimes, in those budgetless and obscure early days, Satomi and me locked in the basement trying to figure out how our clashing personalities and ideas could turn into a band. If we hadn't had that crazed mid-90s Bay Area punk scene to call home, I doubt we'd still be here to chat about a 20th anniversary." - Greg Saunier

In many ways Deerhoof hasn't changed. Their new record La Isla Bonita was recorded in guitarist Ed Rodriguez's basement. Situated next to a parking garage, it was perfect for making noise till the wee hours. They recorded live, DIY style, "a weeklong sleepover arguing over whether to try and sound like Joan Jett or Janet Jackson, cracking each other up, one guitarist whose name starts with J always putting too much red chile into the rations," says Greg. But more than that La Isla Bonita is about the eclectic worldwide community that has supported them.

To co-produce the record they tapped former journalist-turned-label owner and producer Nick Sylvester, one of first writers to have an eloquent take on Deerhoof's harsh and erratic sound. You'll hear them pay musical tributes to their improbable list of heroes-turned-fans: David Bowie, Ric Ocasek, The Roots, Lou Reed, David Byrne, Sonic Youth, The Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Beck. Of course their intent is never reverence, but provocation. They are always on the hunt for that perfect union of the hilarious and the terrifying that one hears in other bands of their generation like Bikini Kill and Lightning Bolt. 2014 has been a killer year for young, aggressive female-fronted bands (St. Vincent, Tune-Yards, Perfect Pussy, Karen O, Speedy Ortiz) and La Isla Bonita is also partly a discourse with them.

Every song is an exercise in duality, alternating between minimalism and bombast, melody and dissonance, and dynamism and tranquility. This all builds to a greater dual theme throughout the album between gloom and joy invoking the feeling of standing at the edge of the precipice and dancing your way off. "We don't set out to create masterpieces. The Deerhoof fan is a thrill-seeker. This is the latest volley in an ongoing conversation we've been honored to hold for 20 years," says Greg.

First single “Exit Only” bursts forth with heavy riffs brimming with purpose and Satomi sneering with bold punk attitude. "Exit Only” premiered with Pitchfork and is available to post + share HERE.

Jamaican Queens is a three-piece pop act based out of Detroit. A songwriting collaboration between Ryan Spencer & Adam Pressley, rounded out by percussionist Ryan Clancy, the band has quickly become renowned for their effortless ability to combine classic pop hooks with some of the more abrasive elements of grime & industrial music. The trio has just announced their new single, Bored + Lazy- set for release November 4th via their own label, Freakish Pleasures.

The title track, which the band describes as “if Ian Curtis were to be the cure to Destiny’s Child’s depression,” is a dark, haunting oeuvre with an infectious chorus that lingers with the listener long after it’s been played. Check out the Entertainment Weekly-premiered “Bored + Lazy” track where it’s available to post & share HERE!

Jamaican Queens released their debut full-length album, Wormfood, early last year to critical acclaim. Spencer draws inspiration for his lyrics from his mercurial relationship with modern love, the undeniably violent tendencies of the human spirit, and his sometimes-debilitating bouts with anxiety & depression. Combined with the eccentric personalities of Pressley & Clancy, the result is an encyclopedia appreciation of everything pop- rendering their songs challengingly unique & wistfully familiar.

Stay tuned for more news from Jamaican Queens coming soon, and be sure to catch their charismatic live show when they take to the road on a fall tour across the US & Canada!

"There are some guitar players that are good, and there are some guitar players that are really fucking good. And then there's Kaki King." – Dave Grohl

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Over the past 10 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released six extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s “Into The Wild”, and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.

Everybody Glows: B-sides & Rarities, out November 4, features a collection of outtakes, demos, covers, live versions and never before heard recordings culled from scratched demo CDs, long forgotten hard drives, and the fuzzier corners of her memory. The collection reveals the evolution of her songwriting while offering a glimpse of a young guitarist doing daring things on her instrument before she grasped the significance of any of it. The album comes with a track-by-track explanation of each song, along with liner notes written by her biggest supporter and fan: her father.

TOUR DATES

In other news, Kaki is preparing an entirely new show, The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, for 2015, featuring high-concept projection mapping in collaboration with Glowing Pictures.  A recording of The Neck is a Bridge to the Body will also be released in 2015 in conjunction with extensive international touring. Don't miss these upcoming shows:

Dec 12  San Francisco, CA @ Kanbar Hall @ JCC
Dec 13  Santa Cruz, CA @ The Catalyst

Jan 9    New York, NY @ The Highline (w/Neneh Cherry)


LIVE SHOW w/ETHEL in SEATTLE 

In addition to her own solo work, Kaki sometimes performs in collaboration with NYC-based string quartet ETHEL, and will appear in special performance with them on Thursday, Oct 30 in Seattle. The program will feature works by yours truly, John Zorn, J.S. Bach, and Aleksandra Vrebalov, among others.  It's been wonderful to work with such a dynamic group so don't miss one of the last performances of this particular line up.  You can also watch a video of me performing with Ethel in a beautiful church -- watch HERE.

OCT 30  Seattle, WA @ Edmonds Center for the Arts (Tickets HERE)

NEW DIGITAL MUSIC STORE

Last but not least, Kaki’s new website launches today @ kakiking.com, and will feature a new digital music store. In addition to featuring Everybody Glows: B-sides & Rarities, the store will include several of her older albums: Everybody Loves You, ...Until We Felt Red, Dreaming of Revenge, Junior and Glow.

Electro-pop singer-songwriter & producer extraordinaire Nanna Øland Fabricius, better known as Oh Land, today announces her fourth studio album, Earth Sick- set for release November 10th via her own independent imprint, Tusk or Tooth, in collaboration with Kobalt Label Services! Immersed in her signature soundscape of lush vocals, rich string arrangements & infectious melodies, the album is a hybrid of masterfully woven symphonic & electronic sounds, and marks a full-circle return to the artist’s bedroom production style.

Earth Sick first single “Head Up High,” featuring bouncing synth rhythms & infectious, hook-laden vocals, was written for a friend going through a tough time in her life as encouragement to, quite literally, keep her head up high. Nearly forgotten about by Nanna, the same friend reminded her a year later whilst deep in the throes of recording Earth Sick. The song was finished almost instantly & added to the album. For an early taste of the record, fans can give “Head Up High” a spin where it’s available to post & share HERE!

Frustrated by the struggle to keep her head above the waves and hold onto a sense of idealism despite the complexities of life, Oh Land grasped the struggle as the inspiration for her lyrical exploration on Earth Sick. Anchored by melancholic anthem “Machine,which opens the album with delicate yet industrial textures, tracks “Little Things” and “Earth Sick” continue the existential lyrical journey combined with the singer’s love for orchestral arrangements.

Oh Land began her career rather unconventionally following a ten-year budding career in ballet, which was ended abruptly by an injury. Searching for a new way to incorporate music into her life, she began recording in her bedroom and discovered an early knack for production. In 2008, she released her debut album Fauna to much critical acclaim, and has spent the better part of the past four years supporting her following releases, Oh Land & Wish Bone, and supporting artists including Katy Perry & Sia on the road.

Stay tuned for more news from Oh Land coming soon, and be sure to catch her when she plays New York City’s Bowery Ballroom on October 21st during CMJ- marking her first NYC show in a year!

Black Beauty, the masterpiece by Arthur Lee’s legendary psychedelic rock band Love, is making its first-ever official release on CD, out November 11th via High Moon Records.  The album had never been released in any format until High Moon Records put it out on vinyl in 2012. In November, Black Beauty will be available as a TrueSound Audiophile CD, packaged in a Hardbound Eco-Book.  With its unparalleled sound and state-of-the-art packaging, Black Beauty is being hailed as an instant classic by critics worldwide.  Read and share the exciting announcement courtesy of Rolling Stone.

The Deluxe CD comes with a 62-page photo-filled booklet with over 35 never-before-seen photos by Herbert W. Worthington and a revelatory essay by Ben Edmonds. Bonus tracks feature explosive live Black Beauty-era Love performances, an unearthed Arthur Lee interview from 1974, and two unreleased Arthur Lee studio cuts.  The ultra-rare title track from legendary filmmaker Max Julien’s “Thomasine & Bushrod’, recorded a few months after the completion of Black Beauty, was Arthur Lee’s first and only foray into film soundtrack composition.  Recorded in 1973 for HairExecutive Producer Michael Butler’s Buffalo Records, Black Beauty remained unreleased when the label folded. Finally, after 40 years High Moon Records is honored to fulfill Arthur Lee’s wish that Black Beauty be heard by music fans worldwide on CD.

Black Beauty is that rarest of rock artifacts: a full-length studio album, from an undisputed musical genius. The album is the missing link in a catalog that includes Forever Changes, the classic 1967 Love album the New York Timescalled “one of the most affecting and beguiling albums of all time.” With Black Beauty, Arthur Lee manages to combine searing 70’s-rock with gorgeous melodies and stellar songwriting—topped off by his most powerful, soulful vocals ever. With its wonderfully eclectic collection of songs, the album offers Love fans a rare glimpse into a previously undocumented phase of Arthur Lee’s fabled career, while shining a light for new fans to discover the unique genius that is the music of Arthur Lee and Love.

There will be a Love exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opens in 2015.  Love’s Black Beauty album will be featured in the exhibit.

Hear Deerhoof’s Critically Acclaimed New Album Streaming in Full at NPR First Listen

“Mirror Monster” Video Premiered Today at The Wall Street Journal

La Isla Bonita Out November 4 on Polyvinyl Records 

This record is for you if you think the naked emperor’s violin playing is out of tune and has too much reverb. It you aspire to never graduate from the underclass. If you think Coke and Pepsi taste the same. If you think emotion stirred by a computer simulation is as worthless as a bad Chaplin mustache.

If there is one thing that Deerhoof has consistently achieved over their 20-year spanning career, it is keeping listeners on their toes. But that’s the extent of their consistency. From album to album and tour to tour, the prolific foursome has fused pop, art, noise, classical, politics and punk, messaging in a way that is never expected.

"Americanization used to mean copying our entertainment and sports, now it means sharing in our financial disasters. This record is meant to be like waltzes: dance music from a decadent society that is crashing." from drummer Greg Saunier's track-by-track guide

On the surface La Isla Bonita is already being hailed as a playful and very catchy punk rock record. MOJO calls it "maverick pop genius," saying, "It shouldn't work. But it does, delivering surrealist pop of such unforced immediacy, such joyful invention, it could brighten any day." NPR First Listen’s love-letter of a review cuts to the core: "For 20 years, Deerhoof has found special and exciting ways to make you feel as if you head might explode."

But as always, the flowers and pandas are not what they first appear. Deerhoof plays on the absurdity of art and music in the face of a cold world seemingly awash in no-win scenarios. This is exemplified in the “Mirror Monster” video revealed today. Filmmaker Todd Chandler shot the autumnal footage one year ago in a Queens parking lot, and happened to show it to Greg just as Deerhoof was starting to write a new record. The poetic footage helped solidify dark themes of a decaying empire whose dubious legacy it is too late to erase. "When I saw these cars getting smooshed, the lyrics just came.”

Line of Best Fit calls "Mirror Monster" "a melancholy meditation on identity, and quite possibly what it is like to come of age as a band." Michael Azerrad hears "an exquisite ballad, one of the most beautiful things Deerhoof has ever done, with classical chords and prismatic guitars and dramatic key changes, but it's also an angry, post-apocalyptic song." Cheers to The Wall Street Journal for having the guts to premier “Mirror Monster” today.

Primus & The Chocolate Factory Debuts in Top 20 On Billboard Chart, #2 On Independent Album Chart + On Tour Now

In celebration of National Chocolate Day – TODAY -- October 29th, we are delighted to share Primus’ new delicious lyric video for the track “Pure Imagination”.  The video brings viewers into the inner workings of a chocolate factory, the same factory where the Primus Wonka Bars were made. Watch and share the lyric video from the new Wonka-inspired album Primus & The Chocolate Factory, courtesy of the Gawker site io9.  Also, Primus will be performing a very special, intimate show at WNYC’s The Greene Space on October 30th, which will be available on livestream at 1pm EST.

Primus’ full-length studio album, ‘Primus & The Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble’ is out now via ATO Records.  The album debuted in Billboard’s Top 20, reaching #2 on the Independent album chart.  In support of their album, the definitive Primus line up -- Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde and Tim Alexander –have started their nationwide tour

"The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record,’ says Claypool. I think like a good portion of the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the 'Willy Wonka' movie - the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film [1971's 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,' starring Gene Wilder] that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that's what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit…twisted them up a lot."

It felt so good, in fact, that he decided to take Primus into the studio to prepare the soundtrack for an album release.  Claypool admits that he’s always, “in some way, wanted to be Willy Wonka,” and, also, that he’s always wanted to work a cover of “The Candyman” -- a memorable number from the film’s soundtrack -- into Primus sets. 

With Primus & The Chocolate Factory scheduled to drop on October 21, Primus plans to tour the Chocolate Factory beginning the very next day.  “We’re going to do some touring with it and we put together this pretty abstract stage production,” says Claypool, “We’re going to take it out there, around the planet, and see what happens. And, in light of the record business being gutted by the Internet, we’ve made some PRIMUS brand chocolate bars to peddle as well.”  

Of course, Claypool realized that it was risky business to adapt a cinematic classic that is so close to so many people’s hearts.  And, naturally, he realized that it was dangerous waters to swim in the wake of Gene Wilder, who portrays Willy Wonka in the original film.  The band pulls it off by making something that is truly their own, without taking anything away from the movie.

“Our project is an homage to Gene Wilder and David L. Wolper’s, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the effect it had on me in my youth,” spouts Les, “Now we get to sell PRIMUS bars and hang out with demented Oompa Loompas. Plus to top it off, it gives me an excuse to wear a purple, velvet waistcoat and brown top hat for the next 18 months.”

Jordan Klassen has been touring his 2013 album Repentance non-stop since its release 12 months ago, embarking on tours across North America, UK, Europe and Australia. As a seasoned songwriter, Jordan has created a unique blend of self-described “chamber folk-pop music.” He was named CBC’s Canadian act to watch of 2014, earning a wonderful description from them that truly expresses how "Klassen takes both his emotion and imaginative insight and melds together poetic lyrics and melody into songs that are warm, meaningful and intimate."

The poppy “Firing Squad”, released today via Stereogum, illustrates a new direction in Klassen’s writing. While it may not necessarily fully foreshadow a direction to expect in a new album to come sometime in 2015, it certainly expands the artist’s colour palette, which makes this track an exciting new single for Jordan Klassen. This is a transitional song for Klassen, it will open up new doors as he continues to write and prepares to record his new album. 

Jordan continues to wow today with the premiere of a fun cover of HAIM’s 2013 hit “Falling”, also on Stereogum. His cover has the song taking on an alluring twist, with his masculine vocal replacing the Haim sisters’ soft three-part harmonies. The arrangement sounds out of this world, having added various instruments common to Klassen’s sound, as opposed to the trio’s guitar, bass and drum set-up.

Jordan will be performing Firing Squad, along with more new songs and songs from his previous release Repentance on his upcoming tour which includes dates in the United States, Canada and Europe.

Lucius have unleashed a head-turning music video for the catchy track, “Hey, Doreen.” The video is a cinematic play on a murder mystery filmed by the same Canadian duo, Leblanc + Cudmore, that captured the album track “Tempest.” Click HERE to check out the mini-film.

The video premieres as the Brooklyn-based quintet treks across Europe for a headlining tour (including sold out shows in London and Dublin). The band will join Jack White as direct support for eight dates at the end of their current headlining tour, culminating with a show at London’s O2 Arena. The band will then return home to headline New York City’s Terminal 5 on Dec. 6. (Full tour dates below).

The video and tour dates are a continued celebration for the one-year anniversary of the band’s debut album Wildewoman. Earlier this month, the band released their Wildewoman Deluxe Edition, which features a collection of covers, live versions and remixes from the past year. The physical and digital Wildewoman Deluxe Edition is available now on iTunes, Amazon + Lucius’ webstore. The bonus tracks will be released on limited edition vinyl on 11/25, which is available for pre-order now.

The past month on tour allowed fans to witness impromptu live collaborations with Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Dave Simonett (Trampled by Turtles), as well as members of The Head and the Heart. The former marks a continuing relationship between the two groups, with the girls having contributed to numerous tracks on Tweedy’s new album Sukierae, as well as on-stage appearances at Newport Folk Festival, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Colbert Report. For a taste of the love the band absorbs during their live performances, watch the crowd-filmed video of “Strangers” (The Kinks cover).
