Chelsea Wolfe

We already heard one song from the upcoming Chelsea Wolfe album, "Iron Moon," which, for someone who's always been at least somewhat associated with metal, was maybe the closest she ever came to sounding metal. Now she's got a second single out, "Carrion Flowers," which is more on the industrial side, making it seem like Abyss may be a pretty diverse album. Check it out below. Abyss comes out August 7 via Sargent House (pre-order).

Chelsea will support the new album on tour with another artist who isn't metal but does have a toe dipped in those waters, Wovenhand. That tour hits NYC on September 9 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show are on AmEx presale now, and the general on-sale starts Friday (6/5) at noon.

All dates are listed below...

Mac DeMarco / Chelsea Wolfe / Flaming Lips / Fuzz @ Levitation Fest 5/10/2015

2015 Levitation Fest Day 3

"Who wants to hear the most muthafuckin' psychedelic song of all time?" That was Mac DeMarco bassist Piece McGarry asking the crowd during the final day of Levitation Fest (5/10). The three-day event used to be known as Austin Psych Fest, so of course the crowd wanted to hear it. They immediately launched into a cover of Coldplay's "Yellow." Between Mac and the main stages' closer, The Flaming Lips, Levitation 2015 ended on a light note. And a thankfully dry one, as reports earlier in the week called for Sunday to have heavy thunderstorms and maybe even tornadoes. Instead, it just felt like it was going rain the whole time (aka hot and muggy).

Most people on Sunday were excited about the 13th Floor Elevators reunion but lots of great sets happened, including A Place to Bury Strangers, Fat White Family, Sean Lennon's The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Nothing, ZZZs, Chelsea Wolfe (subbing for Melody's Echo Chamber), and a sweaty closing-fest set from Ty Segall's proto-metal trio Fuzz.

Pictures from Levitation day 1 are HERE and day 2 are HERE. More pics from Levitation day 3 below...

Chelsea

Visual artist and designer Jenni Hensler, whose work has previously been showcased at the Guggenheim, MoMA and more, is working on a new piece exhibition which will include collaborations with a handful of great musicians. Zola Jesus, Chelsea Wolfe, Jonnine Standish (HTRK), Belong, Azar Swan, Drew McDowall of Coil and MayA are all set to feature in her new work, Persona Somnia, which Jenni is planning to debut this November at a TBA NYC location. To help get that started, Jenni launched an IndieGogo campaign, which you can donate to and receive various rewards including a music compilation from the show, leather pasties, a personal costume, and more. The campaign ends on May 10. More info here and a teaser video below.

Speaking of Chelsea Wolfe, today she released the full version of "Iron Moon" from her new album, Abyss, that we posted a clip of recently. As that clip hinted, it moves from dark, somber, folk-inspired passages to much heavier parts that near doom metal territory. Check it out below, via Rolling Stone. Chelsea also revealed the album's artwork (above) and tracklist (below). Abyss will be out August 7 via Sargent House.

Zola Jesus will also perform in NYC soon at her Northside show on June 14 at Warsaw. Tickets are still available.

Azar Swan plays NYC on June 19 at Palisades with Clay Rendering, Them Are Us Too and Pawns (tickets). She also just made a video for "Hush" off last year's And Blow Us A Kiss, which Jenni Hensler directed. Watch below.

Chelsea Wolfe

Chelsea Wolfe will follow 2013's Pain Is Beauty this summer with Abyss on Sargent House. The album has Chelsea joined by frequent collaborators Ben Chisholm, Dylan Fujioka, and Ezra Buchla, as well as Mike Sullivan of Russian Circles (whose last album she sings on) and D.H. Phillips of True Widow (who she's toured with). It was produced by John Congleton, who's worked with Cloud Nothings, Angel Olsen, Swans and more.

She hasn't put out a full song from it yet, but you can listen to a clip of "Iron Moon" in the album trailer. From the bit we've heard, it's as dark as Chelsea's best stuff, and has her distorted voice over borderline doom metal guitars. It's just a short clip, but it's making this album seem pretty exciting. Check it out below.

Hollow Sunshine

California's Hollow Sunshine is the project of vocalist/bassist Morgan Enos and multi-instrumentalist/visual artist Reuben Sawyer, who's designed the artwork for Deafheaven's Roads to Judah, Destruction Unit's Void, a Chelsea Wolfe t-shirt and more. They're releasing their second album, Bring Gold, on May 12 via Iron Pier (pre-order), the same label that released Self Defense Family's Duets EP last year.

We've got the premiere of new single "Coral," an excellent dose of heavy shoegaze that fans of Nothing, Hum, Cloakroom and their ilk would likely dig. Check it out below.

Hollow Sunshine also have West Coast dates this month with Wild Moth, who recently released a split with Creative Adult, who are currently on tour with Self Defense Family (and hopefully Makthaverskan soon).

La Femme at Bowery Ballroom in March (more by Amanda Hatfield)
La Femme

France's La Femme have an addictive sound pulling from psychedelic pop, surf rock, ye-ye and more, and as good as their recorded music is, their live shows are crazy on another level. So lucky for us, they've announced that they'll be returning to the US this fall where they have three shows announced so far -- NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on October 16, LA's Echoplex on October 23, and San Francisco's Beach Goth Party on 10/25 with The Growlers, The Drums, DIIV, GZA, Cherry Glazerr, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Chelsea Wolfe, The Spits, Atlas Sound and more. CMJ is right in the middle of that gap, so it doesn't seem impossible that they'll play some shows during that as well. Tickets for LPR go on sale today (8/15) at noon.

All dates are listed, with a couple videos, below...

Kevin Drew

It's been a while since we've done one of our video roundups, but there were just too many good videos this week to pass up the opportunity. (Plus, in honor of Valentine's Day, there's some v-day-themed ones worked in here.) We already posted a bunch this week, like Little Dragon, Thurston Moore, Metronomy, The Notwist, Thundercat, OFF!, Marissa Nadler, Arctic Monkeys covering The Beatles, Mission of Burma covering The Beatles, Polica, DTCV, La Femme, The Marked Men's return to NYC, and more, yet there were still plenty of cool ones we didn't get to. Check out recent videos from Kevin Drew, The National, Ariel Pink & Jorge Elbrecht, Phantogram, La Dispute, The Front Bottoms, Guided by Voices, Blouse, Chelsea Wolfe, S. Carey, Death Grips, Quilt, Shellshag and Twin Shadow & Samantha Urbani covering The Smiths, below.

Chelsea Wolfe at FYF Fest 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
Chelsea Wolfe

Chicago post-rock/post-metal band Russian Circles are set to release their fifth studio album, Memorial, on October 29 via Sargent House, and they've just revealed the album's title track. For this song, the instrumental band have tapped goth entrancer (and Sargent House labelmate) Chelsea Wolfe to provide lead vocals. It's a swirling, atmospheric cut that's more similar to Chelsea Wolfe's first two albums than most of Russian Circles' prior output. You can stream it (via Rolling Stone), along with another album track, "Deficit," below.

Chelsea Wolfe's own new album Pain Is Beauty is out now, and she's currently supporting it on a tour with the equally dark slowcore trio True Widow, whose new album Circumambulation is out now via metal label Relapse Records. Their tour hits NYC TONIGHT (9/13) at Bowery Ballroom, and Tickets for tonight's show are still available.

Speaking of Sargent House and Bowery Ballroom, three of the label's bands, Tera Melos, Fang Island, and Zorch are touring together this fall, and will play Bowery Ballroom on October 30. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

FYF 2013 - Day 2
FYF 2013 - Day 2
FYF 2013 - Day 2

Before My Bloody Valentine performed, screens on the sides of the stage encouraged fans to pick up complimentary pairs of earplugs. It was not an idle warning: My Bloody Valentine was the loudest band I heard perform at the main stage all weekend, though a friend insists that The Melvins were louder.

Shortly after the band's eagerly awaited m b v was released this year, I recall reading that after blowing out a few amps and multiple bouts of tinnitus, My Bloody Valentine was never quite able to fully re-create the Loveless tones in concert. Most of last night's songs sounded a little different, notably "Only Shallow," but the variances in guitar tones kept things interesting. Bilinda Butcher's voice still sounds the same and Kevin Shields still creates the swirling guitar sounds by using countless effects pedals.

The band performed quite a few Loveless tracks, with "When You Sleep" being an early stand out track. m b v's "New You" followed, once again showing off the band's digital effect skills. Even though m b v was released over two decades after Loveless, the band's old and new material meshed together seamlessly. [Phoenix New Times]

LA's two-day FYF Fest wrapped up on Sunday (8/25) with one of the few US appearances of 2013 from shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine (who unfortunately didn't allow photographers), the continuously more psychedelic MGMT, and a mix of metal (Baroness, The Melvins), hardcore (Touche Amore), dream pop (Beach House, Washed Out), garage rock (The Orwells, Mikal Cronin) and more. In this post, we've got shots of MGMT, Beach House, Baroness, and Washed Out, plus Solange, Kurt Vile, Yo La Tengo, Chelsea Wolfe (who is currently streaming her new album), and more.

Pictures of day 1 are HERE, and more of day 2, below...

True Widow

Fans of slowcore, keep your eye out for True Widow. The Texas band, who we've written about before, shows glimmers of Low and Codeine amongst their stoner-y darkness, a comparison that rings true on the band's latest LP Circumambulation. Stream some tracks from the band below including the new one "Creeper", and look for it via Relapse on July 23rd (order yours).

Catch True Widow on tour supporting Chelsea Wolfe this fall, including at Bowery Ballroom on 9/13.

Chelsea Wolfe

Chelsea Wolfe returns this year with a new album, Pain Is Beauty, due out on September 3 via Sargent House. We've already heard some clips of it in an album trailer, and now she's finally revealed its first full song, "The Warden," a characteristically dark tune, but with electronics and beats running through it that are new ground for her. Check out the song below.

Chelsea's tour in support of the album hits NYC on September 13 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are still not on sale yet, but you can keep checking Ticketmaster.

Swans

The Northside Festival kicked off last night (June 14) with a number of performances across north Brooklyn, including Swans and Chelsea Wolfe at the Warsaw. Wolfe played her haunting, mellow set better suited to a quieter, smaller venue, but it provided a pleasant contrast for the aural onslaught of Swans.

"Fun" is not a word you usually hear used to describe the infamous New York band Swans. They formed in the early 80s when much of New York City -- and famously Alphabet City, where they practiced -- was a horrifying shit-hole. Their early material embodies the stress, the pain, the aggression, the terror of living in the city at that time. They play painfully loud live shows. Enigmatic front man Michael Gira is known for throwing fits on stage. The first time I saw them play, he stopped a performance mid-song to yell at multi-instrumentalist Thor Harris.

But during last night's performance, the band was visibly enjoying themselves.

I saw band members actually smile at one another. Craggy pedal steel player Christoph Hahn pulled faces at Thor. Michael Gira cracked jokes. When taking their bows, Gira even called Thor Harris "the hairiest nipples in the west." (... Accurate)

Yet their music was still as punishing as ever. Those foolish enough not to bring earplugs most certainly regret it today. Early in the set Gira sneered through the menacing "Coward." The band hammered out a fifty-minute version of "the Seer," the title track off their last album.

Tonight Torche, KEN mode, Lo-Pan, and Inter Arma play the Invisible Oranges showcase at 285 Kent. Greg Ginn's Black Flag plays Warsaw with The Men, among others (not to be confused with FLAG, even though you probably wish you could forget both bands ever "reformed") . Check out our guide to this year's Northside Festival for other awesome stuff that's happening, including the free McCarren Park shows.

Chelsea Wolfe

The artfully gothy Chelsea Wolfe already has two great albums and an acoustic LP under her belt, and she's set to release a new album, Pain Is Beauty, on September 3 via Sargent House. Chelsea hasn't revealed any full tracks from it, but you can hear some snippets in an album trailer below. It's short, but from the sound of those clips, there's plenty to be excited about.

As mentioned, Chelsea Wolfe will open for Swans at Warsaw on June 13 as part of the Northside Festival, which is a great (and terrifying) pairing. Tickets for that show are still available, or you can try to get in with your Northside Badge.

After that show, Chelsea will take a couple months off, and then kick off a full North American tour beginning with her slot at LA's FYF Fest. That tour brings her back to NYC for a headlining show at Bowery Ballroom on September 13. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check Ticketmaster for updates.

All dates are listed, along with the album trailer and tracklist, below...

Check out streams of MGMT's new single, "Alien Days," Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' Push the Sky Away b-side, "Animal X," Chelsea Wolfe's "Fight Like Gods" from her split with King Dude, Nicolas Jaar's remix of Grizzly Bear's "Sleeping Ute," and the video for Garbage and Screaming Females' Patti Smith cover below.

As mentioned, Pharrell was promising something "extra special" for his House of Vans show on Friday (4/19), and though Daft Punk didn't show up, he did play his new collaborative single with the duo, "Get Lucky." Three times. Check out a video of that below (via CoS).

Ex Cops DJing at Other Music, RSD 2012 (more)

We're about a week out from Record Store Day 2013. When it began in 2008, RSD was a celebration of brick-and-mortar stores in the face of digital downloads, offering up exclusive releases to get people out to stores. It's blown up considerably since then, with hundreds of RSD-only releases. (Many of which fall into the hands of folks who turn it around on Ebay that same day, but what can you do?) While it is a mob scene these days, there is no doubt it helps what record stores there are left -- though not enough, as Record Store Day will be the last day for Williamsburg's Sound Fix. Participating stores around the country are listed here.

There are always some pretty cool exclusives too, items that may have never seen the light of day without RSD. With that in mind we've gone through the list of North American RSD exclusives to highlight a few things to keep an eye out. This isn't comprehensive, just stuff we wanna get. What records are you trying to get this year?

We've written about the Sacred Bones comp, the Astralwerks comp, Old 97s, Frightened Rabbit, Austra, Sonny & the Sunsets, and Titus Andronicus Check out our new list below...
