Braids 2015

Montreal electro-pop trio Braids, who were on the road with Purity Ring not too long ago, will be on a headlining tour this fall, a tour that wraps up in Brooklyn at Baby's All Right on October 22. Tickets for that show are on sale. All dates are listed below.

Braids recently made a video for "Miniskirt," from their Polaris-shortlisted album Deep in the Iris. It's a gorgeously shot video made by director Kevan Funk, and there's a little of Tarsem's '90s music video work in this. Says Kevan:

I'd been a huge fan of Braids long before I was lucky enough to be a collaborator, an element that made this video special from the outset. They came to me with a handful of very precise visual ideas that they had in mind, which in turn became my jumping off point to shape the rest of the video. I remember the first time I heard the song, I was simply kind of awestruck by the gravitational power that it seemed to imbued with and it's bold, incendiary beauty. It's a rare sort of source material to get the opportunity to work with. I wanted to create something that could compliment the track as opposed to trying to compete with it's power. When thinking about the song and it's content, I began very interested in the idea of commodification and control of femininity in a patriarchal societal construct, and liberation from that restraint. A central consideration that emerged from that was a historical relationship to nature, in terms of the patriarchal and imperial societal impulse to control, conform and dominate. That dynamic and the songs authorial resistance to that entitlement is what ultimately formed the thematic core of the video.

Blitzen Trapper

Earlier this year, Blitzen Trapper released a live cover album of Neil Young's Harvest, and now they're set to release a new album of original music. It's called All Cross This Land and is due October 2 via Vagrant Records. First single "Lonesome Angel" is the kind of folk rock you might expect a band who covered an entire Neil Young album to write (and like other Blitzen Trapper songs, there's a strong Dylan influence here too). You can check it out below.

The band will support the album with a tour, which hits NYC on October 11 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show are on AmEx presale now. General on-sale starts Friday (7/24) at noon.

All dates are listed, with the new song, below...

lou-barlow-brace-the-wave

Lou Barlow has a new, mostly acoustic solo album, titled Brace the Wave, that will be coming out via Joyful Noise on September 4. That's the cover art above and Lou says it's "nine songs without drums, without regrets." He says some other stuff about the album, some of which may be ironic, in an album trailer you can watch below. The record will be available on "500 hand-numbered VIP copies available on pink & seafoam marbled vinyl." Of those, 100 will include an "original Lou Barlow Poloroid 'selfie'". Pre-orders are on sale now.

Lou will also be going on a solo tour in September, including a stop in NYC at Rough Trade on 9/9. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/24) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Mark Lanegan

Mark Lanegan is unearthing some early-'00s demos for a new release titled Houston (Publishing Demos 2002) which will be out via Ipecac Recordings on August 21. These came shortly after Screaming Trees' breakup and many of these never made it onto a studio album. We've got the premiere of "No Cross" which you can listen to below. You can also check out the LP's tracklist and cover art, which was done by Jon Langford of the Mekons (who are in NYC this week).

Meanwhile, Mark's UK label, Heavenly Recordings, are celebrating their 25th anniversary and releasing a few special singles for the occasion. One of them is Mark Lanegan and Beth Orton covering Marc Almond's 1988 UK hit "Your Kisses Burn," which was a duet with Nico. You can stream that below as well.

Mark's got a few UK shows lined up for August, and those dates are listed below...

In town for tonight's big show at Terminal 5, Courtney Barnett had a showing of her photographs documenting her 2015 tour as well as the artwork from her new album, that happened Tuesday (7/21) at a Lower East Side gallery. The tour photos were of a theme -- hotel bathroom showerheads -- and the artwork, as you may have seen, is all drawings of chairs. You could buy prints of all of these -- the hanging prints all curiously bore the edition number (4/20) -- and proceeds went to benefit the Australian Marine Conservation Society. Like most gallery openings, there was free booze and they also had fortune cookies with Courtney Barnett lyrics in them. Torres and Sadie from Speedy Ortiz, who open tonight's sold-out T5 show, were the night's DJs. Fun time.
