Julien Baker / Torres / Palehound
The highly conceptual quality of the record is just as apparent in the lyrics. With the ambitious arrangements adding dimension, Elena Tonra's words combine prosaic straightforwardness and poetic complexity. Whether they're banal inner monologues, such as "I hate walking alone -- I should get a dog or something..." or more abstract lines such as "Structures of whispers/pass through our veins," Tonra's words cut straight to the marrow with a powerful lyricism. The narrative style of songs such as "Doing the Right Thing" immerses the listener in a commentary on life using sentiments that are at once individual and universal.Read the whole thing here. Julien is on tour now, and just crossed paths with the Torres / Palehound tour for a Tomorrow Never Knows show in Chicago (a great triple bill). The show happened Friday night (1/15) at Lincoln Hall, and we've got pictures in this post.
In interviews, Tonra concedes the "sadness" of the lyrics but remains unapologetic about it. The forlornness and isolation carry over from the band's previous work, but here, Tonra approaches with more candor than before. Open declarations such as "I don't want to belong, to you, to anyone" (from "To Belong") mark a liberated determination that denies ownership of the self to anyone but the speaker.
Julien's tour hits NYC on Thursday (1/21) at Mercury Lounge (sold out), and Monday (1/25) at Rough Trade (tickets), both with Eskimeaux opening. The Torres/Palehound tour also hits NYC on Thursday, at Bowery Ballroom (tickets).

London trio Daughter follow their 2013 debut If You Leave today with Not To Disappear on Glassnote/4AD. They recorded with producer Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, War On Drugs, Animal Collective) in Brooklyn, and it's a very pretty sounding album. Almost the entire thing is slow and minimally arranged, but the album's real strong point is its lyrics. Singer/guitarist Elena Tonra sounds like she wrote it during a sad time in her own life, and it's the kind of thing you'll want to hear when you're wallowing in your own sadness too. Perfect listening for those dimly lit, post-midnight nights alone in your bedroom. Her words are deeply personal -- take "No Care," which would stand out anyway for being the album's only consistently fast song, but it's also one of the most devastating ("Oh, there has only been one time where we fucked / And I felt like a bad memory, like my spine was a reminder of her"). Listen to the album below.
Daughter have a number of European and North American dates coming up, including Northeast stops in Philly, Boston and DC, but unfortunately not NYC. All dates are listed below...
Last night, the Bonnaroo 2016 lineup briefly leaked on the Bonnaroo app (part of it at least), and it was quickly taken down but not before someone could grab it put it on Reddit. A commenter suggests it's just the first wave, and the artists listed as headliners -- (Grateful) Dead & Co., LCD Soundsystem and Pearl Jam -- are just speculated headliners. (The poster also has misspellings like "Fidler.") The rest is listed in alphabetical order, and includes Big Grams, Blood Orange, Bully, Clutch, Death Cab for Cutie, Dungen, Father John Misty, Jason Isbell, Kamasi Washingotn, Kurt Vile, Lamb of God, Leon Bridges, M83, Mavis Staples, Miguel, Purity Ring, Shamir, Tame Impala, Vince Staples, Waxahatchee, Ween and more.
The lineup will officially be announced on Tuesday, January 19 on an episode of Conan, airing at 11 PM EST on TBS. The fest happens June 9-12 this year in its usual home of Manchester, TN. It's the festival's 15th anniversary, and in honor of that they're introducing some new improvements:
For the first time, Great State Park, home of Bonnaroo, will now feature its own permanent water line, allowing for the installation of more than 400 permanent toilets (38% of the total toilets onsite will be flushable), hundreds of permanent shower stalls (35% of the total shower stalls onsite), and a large number of water filling stations newly installed throughout the site.More improvements for the 2017 festival are being planned too.
Tickets go on sale January 22 at noon EST.

The Austin City Limits festival returns to Zilker Park from October 2-4 and October 9-11, and though the lineup wasn't supposed to be announced until this Tuesday, Austin 360 points out that the festival's website leaked it early. The posting was quickly taken down, but not before 365 Things Austin could screenshot it. It was accurate and the ACL 2015 includes Foo Fighters, Drake, The Strokes, The Weeknd, Disclosure, Deadmau5, Bassnectar, Alt-J, Alabama Shakes, Of Monsters and Men, Tame Impala, Sturgill Simpson, The Decemberists, Brand New, TV on the Radio, A$AP Rocky, Billy Idol, Chance the Rapper, Father John Misty, Brandon Flowers, Run the Jewels, Sylvan Esso, Kurt Vile, Waxahatchee, Florence + the Machine, Modest Mouse and more.

Daughter @ Terminal 5 - 10/5/13
The great thing about a band like Daughter? Any type of gimmicks are unnecessary. Elena, seemingly a shy-natured person, didn't have to do a whole lot at the mic; her flawless (flawless!) vocals and words spoke ethereal volumes. At any given time, the crowd was in complete awe of her, and nearly all of the audience packed into Terminal 5 seemed to hold their breath in the smokey silence between song changes, just hanging on the next guitar strum. There were points through out the show where pacing seemed a little off; a few of the songs felt more sped up than usual and Elena fumbled with her ear piece quite a bit, so it's possible that there were some technical troubles, but every now and then one couldn't help but notice a flutter of nerves underlying her vocals. Towards the end of the show, an explanation was offered in an almost whisper, incredulous: "This is the biggest show we've ever played!" The crowd went nuts, many raising their arms over their heads, forming their hands into the shape of a heart. For the encore, Daughter came out played one song: their crowd-pleasing, husky cover of "Get Lucky," sending everyone home a little after 11 o' clock feeling a little more whole, a little more sad, and a little more sexy. [Ftwelve]UK indie folkies Daughter brought their North American tour to NYC this past Saturday (10/5) for a show at Terminal 5, their largest headlining NYC gig yet. They played a bunch of their debut album, If You Leave, and encored with a cover of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." Pictures, including openers Bear's Den, the setlist, and videos from the show are in this post.

Dawes, Dave Hill, Christen Thomas, some dude & King Tuff
Like at Lollapalooza and Firefly, and like we'll be doing again at Bumbershoot, BrooklynVegan was set up each day of Outside Lands in the Soundwave tent where our hosts Christen Thomas and Dave Hill DJ'd, told jokes and interviewed and hosted bands that were playing the fest. Stay tuned for the audio. Meanwhile. pictures from all three days of the tent at the San Francisco fest, though mostly all from Sunday when we had a packed schedule, are in this post.
Taylor from Dawes played three songs, two with his brother singing, before chatting with us. Foals and King Tuff were also great to talk to. MS MR were not only huge crowd pleasers, our host Christen Thomas was pleased to realize during the performance that Lizzy was her intern at Vice many years ago. Camper Van Beethoven performed three songs for us too... total pros.
Pictures from the rest of OSL HERE. More from the Soundwave tent below...

Empire of the Sun have released the video for their new single, "Alive," from their forthcoming album Ice on the Dune. Like most of their videos it's slightly over the top. You can watch it below.
Kelis, who has always been one of the more adventurous artists in popular R&B, is set to release her next album, FOOD, this September. The album was produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek and it will come out on his Federal Prism label. The first single, "Jerk Ribs" (which surfaced a few days ago, but was mislabeled as "Call on Me") sees Kelis soaring over a clattering beat and some anthemic horns, and it's one of her strongest singles in years. You can stream/download it below. - Andrew

The Walkmen @ T5, 10/18/2012
Forefathers of NYC's current indie rock scene, The Walkmen headlined Terminal 5 last Thursday (10/18) which was the penultimate date on their fall tour supporting their seventh album, Heaven. The show ended up being opened up to CMJ badges, which made it probably the biggest show of the festival. In addition to their rousing set, the T5 show also featured Dum Dum Girls (who played Glasslands the night before) and the spooky, beautiful sounds of Daughter, who also played other CMJ shows. Pictures from Terminal 5 (and The Walkmen's setlist) are in this post.
In other Walkmen news, Hamilton Leithauser (who we spotted in the crowd for Father John Misty's MHOW show this week) recently spoke to FUSE about Heaven, Frank Sinatra and other subjects, and you can watch a video of that below. Also below, Sandy, Jules and Malia of Dum Dum Girls visit Japanese monster chat show Gorburger and things get strange.

"Savages absolutely killing it at Mercury Lounge #CMJ2012" - Will Barton
"@Savagesband Ruling Mercury" - Daron Watson
"Being blown away at Mercury Lounge by Savages." - Cheryl Waters
If there's any band who universally lived up to their hype at this year's CMJ, it had to be London's Savages. Everyone at BV loved them, we caught their sets at the Stereogum showcase and at our own day party. We also went over to Mercury Lounge after our Friday party (10/19) to catch them again, where they were headlining a sold out show with Choir of Young Believers, Daughter, San Cisco, and Emma Louise (who recently signed to Frenchkiss). J. Thoven was on that bill too but we missed their set. Pictures from the rest are in this post.
Meanwhile, Choir of Young Believers (who were also great at our Saturday day party) and Daughter are on a tour that hits Chicago tonight. Daughter also played the Glassnote CMJ showcase while they were in NYC.
Videos of Savages tearing it up during "Flying to Berlin" and "Husbands" at Mercury Lounge, and more pics from the show are below.

Daughter at The Slipper Room, 10/17/2012
Glassnote Records, home to Mumford & Sons and Phoenix among others, showcased some of their newest signees at a CMJ showcase on 10/17 at snazzy, newly-renovated Lower East Side club The Slipper Room. Daughter, who've been through NYC before and will release their debut album in early 2013, were headliners but the buzz came from Dublin, Ireland's Little Green Cars who seem to be very much in the Mumford way of radio-friendly folk (but who also aren't afraid to cover "It's a Long Way to Tipperary."
Sandwiched in between those two was Seattle's Robert DeLong who makes cheery electronic pop and who is currently on tour with The Faint. All tour dates for him and Daughter are below along with more pics from the Glassnote CMJ showcase.

Death Grips @ LPR, 10/17/2012 (via @brooklynvegan)
On Wednesday (10/17), CMJ was well under way and day parties were widespread across the Lower East Side yesterday (and to a lesser extent, Williamsburg). Andrew was out and about, like at the Terrorbird party at Cake Shop:
Prince Rama (via @brooklynvegan Instagram)
Says Andrew: "It was pretty easy to go in and out so it probably never hit capacity, but Cake Shop was still packed all afternoon for the Terrorbird party. I got there around 4 and caught great sets by Pictureplane, Prince Rama, Mykki Blanco, and Jerome LOL. How were the earlier ones that I missed?"
Meanwhile, BV photographer Amanda Hatfield roamed around the city, hitting the KEXP day show at Union Square Ballroom where she saw Daughter, High Highs, Cody ChesnuTT and Interpol frontman Paul Banks who was sharp-dressed as usual:
Paul Banks at CMJ Union, 10/17/2012 (via @brooklynvegan Instagram)
Stay tuned for better pictures from that. She later crossed paths with Andrew at Cake Shop, but also spent time at the Tell All Your Friends Party at Pianos where she caught Braids, and then they both headed over to Le Poisson Rouge for Ali Shaheed, Buke & Gase, Death Grips, and Flying Lotus which was by all accounts a bananas show.
Indians at Brooklyn Bowl, 10/17/2012 (via @brooklynvegan)
My CMJ Wednesday started a little later than planned a quick plop-down in the couch turned into an hour disconap, but I made it down to Brooklyn Bowl for Hype Machine's party to see Danish artist Indians. Andrew wrote a nice little recap of his Tuesday set at Living Room which I agree with but will say a bowling alley is maybe not the right place to see a one-man electronic act that is mostly downtemo, somber music. That said, he's got a great voice and would love to see him again not in a 7-10 split situation.
The big news from his set was that Indians pressed 500 copies of his 4AD debut on vinyl in plain brown sleeves to sell just at CMJ. The album won't actually be out till January, so this is a real treat. I wanted one, but wasn't going home anytime soon, so maybe I'll pick one up at one of his other shows this week.
I left the Hype Machine party before The Neighborhood went on, but the band did give me a glow-in-the-dark sticker while I was looking at the Indians vinyl at the merch table. Thanks, guys! I hoofed it up Wythe to South 2nd and poked my head in to Death by Audio to see what time METZ were going on (late) and then rounded the corner onto Kent to hit Glasslands for the Stereogum party where the line stretched long outside. I was lucky I managed to get in, but others weren't. The NY Times was there in the weeds, talking to folk in line, "many of them in fashionable clothes and carrying iPods."
When I got inside, I found things running late and heard the "Thank you, goodnight!" from Io Echo (who play our day party on Friday [10/17). Port St. Willow, who also played the NYC Taper show at Cake Shop today, were up next and sounded nice, but were maybe a little to mellow to follow a dance-y act.
Savages @ Glasslands 10/17/2012 (via @soundbitesnyc)
After their set I worked my way up front to catch Savages, the real reason I was there. As I wrote earlier, they kinda knocked me out. (Their rhythm section is insane.) Mind you, I am a sucker for this kind of sound (gothy post punk a la 1981) but Savages are the real deal. They play our day party Friday (10/19, 2:30) which you should totally try to make. Skip class, call in sick...whatever you have to do. It's a great line-up (The Intelligence! METZ!) and totally free.
Pitchfork loved Savages too.
Guards at Glasslands 10/17/2012 (via @brooklynvegan)
Guards (ex-Cults member Richie Follin's band) we up next and played a fine set of rousing, sing-a-long rock. Follin remarked it was nice to be back at Glasslands where they played their first-ever show.
Dum Dum Girls @ Glasslands, 10/17/2012 (via @soundbitesnyc)
Dum Dum Girls took the stage about 12:30 and seemed in good spirits, delivering the kind of all-killer-no-filler showcase set that makes festival attendance a plus sometimes. They even did their cover of Pale Saints "Sight of You" again (just like at Europa). New bassist (and talented photographer/filmmaker) Malia James is a great addition to the band, adding a little sass to DDG's otherwise cool demeanor. (She also looks more than a little like Jessica Paré [aka Megan Draper].)
And that was it for me for that night, but BBG was just getting started with a late night WIERD show at Home Sweet Home that featured Cult of Youth and Slug Guts. But elsewhere in the world...
Hundred Waters, who you can see tonight at Brooklyn Bowl with Lee 'Scratch' Perry, and who play the free BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly Saturday, started their CMJ run at Mercury Lounge last night with Pitchfork on hand.
We also got a peak at the renovated Slipper Room last night. BV's Dominick Mastrangelo stopped by for the Glassnote showcase set by Daughter (who open for the Walkmen and Dum Dum Girls at Terminal 5 tonight). "Very cool space. Look forward to catching more shows here", he tweeted. Stay tuned for more on that.
Local Natives headlined a one-off show at Bowery Ballroom.
The few who stuck it out till the end at the 285 Kent hip hop show last night are probably tired, as we know Sasha Go Hard went on some time after 3am... she came straight from the airport too, and then went right back to the airport and back to Chicago right after the show!
Speaking of our day party Friday, you can see Sky Ferreira there. Last night she played Union Hall., Check out a video below...
Complex is throwing a big, free, multi-genre, non-CMJ party during CMJ at Brooklyn's House of Vans on October 18. The show's got two stages -- a rap and a rock stage -- with the rap stage being headlined by Action Bronson and the rock stage by Interpol frontman Paul Banks. The rest of the lineup includes The Alchemist, Ratking, Ka, Spaceghostpurrp, Savages, Savoir Adore, and a surprise special guest. RSVP is required for the free show and you must be 21+. The flier is below.
Meanwhile, you can catch Action Bronson in NYC even sooner when he plays a free show at Public Assembly on October 10, and he'll also be back for a show at Highline Ballroom on October 30 with Cypress Hill.
We also just mentioned that Hot Charity signees Ratking have CMJ shows scheduled including free shows at Glasslands and Mercury Lounge on October 19 and a not-free show at Glasslands on October 20.
Savages have a number of CMJ shows scheduled too. They're playing Mercury Lounge on October 19 with Choir of Young Believers, Daughter, San Cisco, Emma Louise, and J. Thoven. Advance tickets for that show are sold out but you can still try to get in with your CMJ badge. They also play the Stereogum showcase with Dum Dum Girls, Guards, Port. St Willow, IO ECHO, and Icona Pop (DJ) (tickets), and it was just announced that they'll play the free Bowery Presents day party on October 20 at Pianos with The Orwells, Foxygen, Born Ruffians, Little Green Cars, Ava Luna, J. Thoven, San Cisco, Sky Ferreira, Opossom, Murals, Zulu Pearls, and Blessed Feathers.
The flier for the Complex show and an updated list of Action Bronson and Paul Banks dates are below.
KEXP is always good for some intimate & live-broadcasted CMJ performances, and this year is no different, except for the venue:

It's a place where ideas and information can be exchanged through exclusive mixers and parties, where guests can experience artist performances broadcast live by KEXP, and where tips on where to go and who to see ping back and forth across the room.
KEXP LIVE BROADCAST
As part of the festivities at CMJ Union, CMJ and Seattle radio station KEXP have teamed up for an exclusive broadcast event. KEXP returns to the festival to host a live transmission. KEXP DJ's John Richards and Cheryl Waters will spin in between sets.
