Brooklyn artist Tim Fite is releasing a new album, iBeenHACKED (not a reference to the U2 album) (or the name of a giant corporation), on October 7. He describes it as "a music/art project satirizing and celebrating the highs and lows of digital culture, examining the ways technology and connectivity are hacking our daily lives, and altering the codes that we live by." The project will include:
• a limited edition series of hand made glass "Phonies."Its newest single, "Like," is just as satirical as you'd expect, and it premieres in this post. You can listen below.
• a Brooklyn storefront turned into a giant smart-phone.
• alternative digital-music monetization strategies such as the sale of advertising space and personal shout outs in songs.
• a body of songs that are wickedly insightful and often laugh out loud funny - wrestling with subject matter ranging from the at nauseum action of online "liking" ("Like"), smart-phone addiction ("Check Yo Cell"), the cult of macintosh products ("Big Mac"), the binge-watching epidemic (4 Seasons), and plenty more.
Tim's also got a European tour planned with Berlin's wild Bonaparte, who he's played NYC with before. All of those dates are listed, with the new song stream and album trailer, below...
Angel Olsen @ MHOW in May (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Jagjaguwar is releasing a deluxe digital edition of Angel Olsen's Burn Your Fire for No Witness on November 18 that comes with a bonus disc of five bonus songs, two of which were on the 7" that came with early pressings of the vinyl LP. You can stream one of the bonus cuts, "All RIght Now," and the video for "High & Wild," below.
Olsen has been touring for the better part of 2014 and has just added dates to that, wrapping things up here in NYC with three shows: a solo show at Brooklyn's Roulette on December 6 with old pal Jay Bartell, and then two nights at Bowery Ballroom on December 8 & 9, both with Lionlimb. Tickets to all three NYC shows go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (9/17) at noon.

BrooklynVegan is very excited to be presenting the first American show by UK duo Sleaford Mods, which will happen in NYC at The Wick on November 29. Supporting bill is still TBA but tickets are on sale now. Here's what we wrote about the 'Mods earlier this year:
Somewhere between punk, hiphop and spoken word lie UK duo Sleaford Mods. (They are neither mods, nor from Sleaford. They're from Nottingham.) Jason Williamson spews a tapestry of bile over low-tech, muscular backing by Andrew Fearn, the result is somewhere between The Fall, McClusky, Happy Mondays and John Cooper Clark. The pair have been making music for eight years now but really started to get attention with last year's terrific Austerity Dogs and look to go even wider with the just released Divide and Exit. On it Sleaford Mods are in full rebellion mode. Who against? Whadda you got? Like Protomartyr's Joe Casey, Williamson hold equal contempt for the rich, conservatives, liberals, phonies in general, idiots, "jolly fuckers," etc all via a nonstop torrent of brilliantly, hilariously profane lyrics.You can stream Divide and Exit, as well as previous releases and a few videos and a short Quietus documentary about the band, in this post.
The Wick show is Sleaford Mods' only North American date at the moment but they're on tour in the UK and Europe throughout the fall. All dates are listed, along with videos and streams, below...
Manchester Orchestra at Lollapalooza 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
Manchester Orchestra put out their grungy new album Cope earlier this year, and they've now followed it with a stripped-down version of all the songs called Hope which is already available on iTunes and will be out physically on November 18 via Loma Vista. They're also going on a stripped-down tour in support of it which brings them to more intimate venues than their last tour, including NYC's The Bell House on December 9, a much smaller place than their Terminal 5 show in May. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Chris Staples opens all dates.

Alt rock vet Mark Lanegan will release his new album, Phantom Radio, on October 21 via Flooded Soil/Vagrant. The first single from the record is "Floor Of The Ocean" which might supprise Screaming Trees fans who haven't checked with Mark in a while. It's heavy on synths and drum machines, with a little Peter Hook style bass in there as well. You can stream that below.
Mark will be touring this fall, and he'll play NYC at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall on November 8. Tickets go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon.
You can also hear Mark on the new Stooges rerecordings that guitarist James Williamson is putting together. All tour dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...
APTBS @ MHOW, 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Austin Psych Fest is one of the cooler annual conclaves for headtrip rock n' roll, and they're bringing a bit of that flavor to NYC during CMJ for a showcase at Rough Trade on October 25 with A Place to Bury Strangers, White Fence, Moon Duo, King Gizzard & the Wizard Lizard, Wampire, Bo Ningen, Spires, The Wytches and The Paperhead. It's a 6 PM start with "special guests to be announced." Tickets go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon. Flyer for the show is below.
This is the only current date for A Place To Bury Strangers, though it seems likely that the band will play Death by Audio before it closes, seeing how frontman Oliver Ackerman runs the successful Death by Audio pedal company that's housed in the back of the venue (which will be locating to new digs) and if anybody's the DbA house band, it's APTBS.
Nashville's The Paperhead, meanwhile, just announced they'll be releasing Africa Avenue this fall via Trouble in Mind, their first new music in two years. Bo Ningen will be at CMJ following their tour with Kasabian. White Fence and King Gizzard have other CMJ shows together too.
Moon Duo also play with The Horrors at Stage 48 on October 21 (tickets), though most of their tour together was postponed, and then they'll play with The Kills at Bowery Ballroom on 10/23 (sold out but you can try to get in with a CMJ badge if you're gonna have one).

Lightning at the Door album art
Nashville's psych-rockers All Them Witches are giving their album, Lightning at the Door, a proper release today (9/16). It's a heady brew of swirling tones and heavy blue-eyed blues rock. The tracks also have that bracing spontaneity of crack improvisers. Says singer/bassist Michael Parks, Jr. regarding their approach: "In terms of the music, we're so loose, and that's where the magic comes from. There's no controlling factor. We do exactly what comes naturally. We go in a room without any idea about what will happen, get in the groove, and it works. That's supernatural." You can check out a couple of its tracks below.
All Them Witches are currently on tour with crushing doomers Windhand. This Saturday's (9/20) show at NYC's Saint Vitus with Ilsa and Polygamyst is on the very near horizon. That show is also very nearly sold out according to Saint Vitus's Facebook: "If you want tickets to Windhand, act soon. There are less than 30 left." Tickets are, indeed, available now.

Kevin Morby is set to release his second solo album, Still Life, via Woodsist on October 14. Like his solo debut, the new album was produced by Rob Barbato but sounds a bit more fleshed-out, production wise, than his first. You can check out a video for "All of My Life" which is an homage to country music variety shows of the '60s and '70s and features White Fence's Tim Presley as the host. Watch that and check out another track, "Parade," below.
While Kevin lives in Los Angeles these days, he does tend to make it back to New York pretty often. He'll be here during CMJ, playing the Aquarium Drunkard showcase at Rough Trade on October 24 with Twin Peaks, Modern Vices, and Geronimo Getty. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon. He's also playing a free set at Academy Annex on October 25, details TBA.

Diplo has a few dates coming up this year, and he'll be ringing in the new year in a big way when he teams up with Skrillex for a New Year's Eve show at Madison Square Garden. The show will include solo sets from each producer, plus a set as their collaborative project Jack U. Tickets are currently on AmEx presale with a Live Nation presale beginning Thursday (9/18) at 10 AM and the general on-sale starting Friday (9/19) at noon. All Diplo dates are listed below.
The pair have also premiered the studio version of their collaboration with pop singer Kiesza, "Take Ü There," on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show. You can stream that below. Maybe Kiesza will show up on NYE? We know for sure she'll play NYC in October though, for the Downtown Music Festival.
