Waxahatchee seems all grown up since its 2013 appareance at Pitchfork. Back then, crowd chatter and indifferent fans drowned out a majority of leader Katie Crutchfield's lyrics on the small stage. Here, Crutchfield receives support from a backing quartet that adds muscle, volume and thickness to her musings. In her world, holding back emotions is for sissies. Framed by fuzz-rock and elastic pop arrangments, she navigates gray areas of romantic relationships and insecurities of getting older. Her deceptively sweet voice relays the worries, wishes and misgivings common to almost every 20-and 30-something. For 45 minutes, Waxahatchee functions as a personal diary, complete with smart analogies that spare no one blame, including Crutchfield herself. [Bob Gendron for Chicago Tribune]

Sinkane

Sinkane will warm up for his appearance at this weekend's Bonnaroo fest with a Brooklyn show on Thursday (6/11) at 501 Union in Gowanus. The show, which is presented by GAP, also features a set from Prefuse 73 keyboardist Ryan Rahseed. Tickets are on sale now. You can also catch Sinkane opening for Caribou at East River Park Summerstage on August 6. That show is free. You may recall Sinkane played as part of the Caribou Vibration Ensemble a few years back.

In other news, we've got the premiere of a remix of Sinkane's "New Name" by Coral D, aka Duncan Stump, one half of DFA artists Mock & Toof and who also runs Tiny Sticks label. Stump maintains the tribal vibe of the original song (from last year's Mean Love), but takes it below the topsoil into darker (more minimal) territory. Stream it below.

Outside Lands

Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly and Starr Hill, in a partnership with the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, have announced [the] lineup for the eighth annual Outside Lands Festival. After four consecutive sold-out years, the world's only gourmet music festival that Rolling Stone hailed as "one of America's best," and the Huffington Post called "a well-rounded cultural event," will once again take place in San Francisco's historic Golden Gate Park August 7 - 9, 2015. While the Eager Beaver on sale had the fastest sell-out in the history of the festival, a limited number of 3-Day General Admission and VIP regular tickets go on sale this Thursday, March 26th at 10am PDT via SFOutsideLands.com.

Caribou's terrific 2014 album Our Love has just been given an expanded digital edition with seven remixes, including "Second Chance" by Cyril Hahn and two different versions of "Mars" by Head High, all of which can be streamed below. Says Caribou's Dan Snaith:

The Cyril Hahn remix is a beautiful ethereal slowed-down version of 'Second Chance' and came about in the way that many of my favorite remixes from this album did: Cyril made a bootleg mix from the album version which caught my attention and I loved it and sent him the parts to finish for the full released version...

...The Head High remixes illustrate the prowess of one of house and techno's don's - Germany's René Pawlowitz aka Head High aka Shed aka Wax aka WK7 aka Evil Fred aka The Traveller aka Wax aka... I've been hammering Head High's tunes in my DJ sets (alongside everyone else) for years. He's infallible - almost inhumanly so. His tracks reliably pulverize everything in their path.
Full tracklist for the expanded Our Love is below.

Having played two sold out shows at Webster Hall last year, Caribou will be back in NYC during the warmer months to play a SummerStage show. (SummerStage is announcing it's 2015 slate one performer a day all this month.) Date and venue have yet to be announced. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Caribou's SummerStage show happens August 6 at East River Park. It's a free show

All announced dates, plus those remix streams and live video of Caribou playing "Can't Do Without You" and "Back Home" on Later with Carson Daly, below...

The 2015 Primavera Sound Festival goes down in Barcelona, Spain from May 28 - 30.

photo::: Caribou Vibration Ensembe @ ATP NY 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)

You may remember that Caribou toured as the Caribou Vibration Ensemble back in 2009 which featured Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Four Tet's Kieran Hebden, Enon/Braniac's John Schmersal, Sinkane's Ahmed Gallab and more. CVE released a live album in 2010 and have now released a second, this time coming from two shows in December 2011 in Belgium and London with a slightly different lineup of the Ensemble, most notably minus minus Allen. You can stream that in full below and they'll have vinyl copies on tour this spring.

Meanwhile, there's also a live video of Caribou Vibration Ensemble from their ATP UK performance in 2011 that does feature Marshall Allen and the other folks on the live LP (ATP UK was just a few days later). That video was shot and directed by Savages drummer Fay Milton and you can watch that below as well.

As you may know Milton and the rest of Savages are in NYC this month for a nine-show club residency. Marshall Allen, meanwhile, will be here with Sun Ra Arkestra for a free show at the Seaport's inflatable venue Sugarcube on January 31.

Video and live album stream below...

We love year-end lists -- reading them, making them, arguing about them. BrooklynVegan editors Andrew Sacher and Bill Pearis have once again figured out their favorite albums of the year which you can check out, with commentary, below. Someday we may be able to come to an agreement on an official BV year-end list, but as you'll see there's not a lot of commonality between their two lists. (Specifically, there is zero commonality.) Which is ok! Diff'rent Strokes to rule the world. This year, they've also added their Top 20 favorite songs as well.

Find out what made their lists, below...

Glasslands

As mentioned, Glasslands will be closing out their time on Kent Ave with a New Year's Eve Party featuring four "special, secret" guests, all of whom have history with the venue. None of those guests have been revealed yet, but the night includes a one-hour open vodka bar early and a midnight champagne toast. Tickets go on sale today at 10 AM.

We asked Glasslands/Popgun's Rami Haykal and Jake Rosenthal for Top 10 lists. Rami gave us his favorite albums of 2014 (many of the artists have played Glasslands over the years); Jake gave us his 10 favorite Glasslands shows ever. You can find out who ended up their lists, below. What was your most memorable show at Glasslands?

Rami and Jake also asked us to let folks know that they are looking to collect any physical memorabilia from Glasslands, be it flyers, posters or whatever. If you have something, please get in touch at booking@theglasslands.com.

Pitchfork

First tracks, then honorable mentions, and now Pitchfork has put out their Top 50 Albums of 2014. There's nothing entirely out of left field, but there's definitely some surprises here. Taylor Swift, whose album was not reviewed at all (I guess it was a pretty obscure one), comes in at #31 with her album, 1989. Sun Kil Moon, which was the only 2014 album in their Top 10 Albums of the Decade So Far this past August (and seemed like a sure bet for #1) dropped down to #7 and was beaten out by his enemies The War on Drugs. TWOD actually came in at #3 themselves, and the two ahead of them are two you may not have seen coming.

We already knew that Pallbearer, the only Best New Music metal album of 2014, was an honorable mention, which unsurprisingly left zero metal albums on this list. No other BNM album got snubbed (save for a Hyperdub compilation and the Beyonce album, but that was probably because it was technically a 2013 release), and there's not really any glaring omissions in terms of what Pitchfork appeared to champion this year.

See the list for yourself below...

Caribou

Caribou's most recent album, Our Love, has gotten much acclaim this year, showing up on a number of publications' Best of 2014 lists. If you're wondering what Caribou main man Dan Snaith's favorite albums and songs of the year are, you're in luck -- he was nice enough to give us his lists for both. The same artist tops both his LP and tracks list and you can find out who that is below.

As mentioned, Caribou's latest release is Carl Craig's "c2's Set U Free RMX" of "Your Love Will Set You Free" which is out now digitally and will be out on 12" vinyl soon. Caribou will be touring the West Coast in February.

Pitchfork

Pitchfork have begun rolling out their year-end coverage, and today they posted their Top 100 Tracks of 2014. Like every year, it's a very diverse list, with songs from Taylor Swift, The New Pornographers, iLoveMakonnen, Protomartyr, Cloud Nothings, Rae Sreummurd, Makthaverskan, Ty Segall, Parquet Courts, Azealia Banks, White Lung, Perfect Pussy, Dej Loaf, Migos, Alvvays, Against Me!, Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, Bobby Shmurda, Charli XCX, Grouper, Beyonce, Perfume Genius, Shamir, Michael Jackson, Tinashe and more. And their #1 seems to be the most ubiquitous #1 of 2014.

Sleafords

The Guardian has been sloooowwwlllyyyy revealing their Top 40 Albums of 2014, having rolled out the top 10 one by one over the past 10 days. If you've been following along, you probably already guessed their #1 by now, but if not you can browse their full list of 40 below. It's got a lot of this year's list regulars, and like many of the British publications have, it gives some major love to Sleaford Mods (maybe you caught their US debut in NYC?). Also The War On Drugs shuts out Sun Kil Moon once again (they're not #1 but close). Sorry Koz.
