- Delorean

BrooklynVegan is excited to be presenting Delorean's full-band show at Baby's All Right this Saturday.

Tickets for Delorean are on sale now (if you went to Full Moon Fest you should have a discount code emailed you), and we're also giving away a pair. Details below.

Delorean also play Montauk's Surf Lodge on Sunday (8/17) which is a free show that's worth checking out if you're out that way (and lah di da if you are!).

Hiro Kone
Hiro Kone

Hiro Kone, aka former Effi Briest and Up Died Sound member and visual artist Nicky Mao, released her debut EP, The Unmoved Mover, earlier this year via Group Tightner. The EP is five songs of blissed-out, downtempo electronics and you can stream it below. Recently, Spanish dance troupe Delorean remixed the EP's "Phantom" and you can stream that (via Fader) below as well.

Both Hiro Kone and Delorean have NYC shows this summer. Delorean will be here for Governors Island's Full Moon Festival in August, and they'll also play a free show at Montauk's Surf Lodge on August 17. In between those two shows, Delorean will also play Philadelphia and Washington, DC and all dates are listed below.

As for Hiro Kone, she plays Body Actualized on Wednesday, July 2 with TBA lineup. Then she'll play Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on August 2 as part of a lineup that includes Simian Mobile Disco, Daniele Baldelli, Charanjit Singh, and Maria Chavez. Tickets for that Warm Up are still available.

Like in past years, the Montauk restaurant/hotel/vacation spot The Surf Lodge is once again hosting a free concert series.

Delorean @ MHOW 1/24/2014
IMAGE

Spanish synth-pop four piece Delorean made their way back to New York on Friday (1/24) after having to cancel their previously-announced tour last fall, due to the band falling prey to a "virtual kidnapping." Despite the city being slowly blanketed by a sticky snowfall, a sold-out crowd slowly filled up Music Hall of Williamsburg to welcome the band back.

Though the room was only half-full when opener Mas Ysa situated himself behind a table of carefully balanced electronics, there was a palpable excitement in the air. The solo project of producer and former 285 Kent resident Thomas Arsenault, Mas Ysa can be viewed as a study in limitations -- he performs with the exact rig he uses for recording, choosing to let a minimal sound palette guide his path. Throughout his set, Arsenault explored the depths of each of his chosen timbres fully -- juxtaposing pounding 909 kicks, riotous tom fills, and ethereal choir pads with his own stinging vocals while pouncing around the stage with mic in hand or hunched over his mixer, mouth agape in concentration. It was easy to imagine him in his bedroom, unraveling these complex and embattered songs with no thought of the outside world -- much less the music industry -- and that singular focus sold Mas Ysa's solo performance, no easy task in front of an anxious crowd waiting to be swept away by the multihued ebullience of Delorean.

Luckily they didn't have to wait long, as the True Panther-signed band took the stage after a short break and immediately launched into their own interpretation of fellow Spaniard John Talabot's remix of "Seasun." Delorean has clearly mastered the art of careful, measured builds, as each member weaved his own strand of sound into an arpeggiated quilt that leaped into every corner of Music Hall. Drawing from last year's Apar, much of the set featured tracks that relied on consistently 4/4, disco-inspired rhythms, though the more energetic songs they did bring back from their idiosyncratic 2010 debut Subiza drew shouts of indelible excitement.

More pictures from Friday's Delorean / Mas Ysa show are below, as well as the rest of Delorean's tour dates.

Closing Fun Fun Fun Fest, Slayer treated Austin to greatest hits and then some: "Raining Blood," "South of Heaven," "Dead Skin Mask," "Seasons in the Abyss," etc. They also dug out the aforementioned "Die by the Sword," a high point off their 1983 debut LP, Show No Mercy.

After fooling no one with a false ending of "South of Heaven," the third backdrop of the night unfurled at the back of the stage: a parody of the Heineken logo reading "Hanneman" and bearing his life dates. The top read "Angel of Death." Reign in Blood's terrifying opening track - and closing number on Auditorium Shores - now serves as an epitaph for Slayer's fallen co-founder. - [Austin Chronicle]

The eighth Fun Fun Fun Fest happened last weekend (11/8 - 11/10) at Austin's Auditorium Shores, hosting three days of music and fun (fun fun), with such acts as MIA, Deerhunter, Slayer, Television, Thee Oh Sees, Kurt Vile, Cut Copy. Johnny Marr, The Walkmen, Jurassic 5, Killer Mike and loads more. Many of them played again as part of the FFF Nites shows, including shows presented by BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges.

We were there in the thick of it and, as mentioned above, you can check out pics from Day 1  HERE and HERE, pics from Day 2 pics HERE and HERE; and pics from Day 3 are HERE and HERE. See you again in 2014 Austin.

Delorean

Spanish synth pop band Delorean recently faced an unfortunate "virtual kidnapping" and have since needed to postpone some tour dates, including their NYC show which would have happened on October 23 at Webster Hall. They haven't announced the fully rescheduled tour yet, but they did announce that the new NYC date will happen on January 24 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for the new show go on sale today (10/16) at noon and all tickets purchased for the Webster Hall show will be honored.

UPDATE: All rescheduled dates have been announced, and they're listed below.

Delorean @ BVSXSW 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Delorean

You may have read that Spanish dance troupe Delorean were recent victims of "virtual kidnapping" in Mexico City, where they were held captive for 30 hours and subjected to psychological torture. The band hare since released a statement on the whole ordeal:

On Monday morning October 7th we received a phone call at our hotel room in Mexico City from a person posing as a hotel security officer. We were informed that there was a security threat at the hotel.

What followed for the next 30 hours was an experience where the threat of death was real due to the psychological manipulation inflicted on us by our kidnappers. Thanks to the fantastic work of the National Police in Spain, Ertzantza, Interpol and the Federal Police in Mexico, we were successfully rescued yesterday morning.

While it would be convenient to blame Mexico, that would not be sound. This could have occurred anywhere in the world. Our hope is that this situation will bring attention to the abuse that we were subjected to by our kidnappers, so that other travelers do not fall victim in the future.

This has been extremely difficult for us and our families. At this time we have no further comment and we ask that you respect our privacy so that we can return to normality in our lives.

We're glad to hear that Delorean were lucky to escape such a horrible thing. Perhaps it's no surprise that the band would maybe want to take some time off to be with their friends and families, instead of mounting a North American tour which was supposed to have started October 9. While there has been no official announcement, dates up through October 14 have already been canceled and it was just announced that the NYC date -- 10/23 at Webster Hall -- has been canceled with the follow short statement:
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Delorean concert scheduled for October 23 has been postponed. A rescheduled date is being arranged and will be announced as soon as possible. Tickets will be honored at the rescheduled show, refunds are available at the point of purchase.
Says their label, True Panther, "We'll have comments on the upcoming tour dates when the dust settles a bit."

Deerhunter @ MHOW - 9/17/13
Deerhunter
Deerhunter

Deerhunter have been on the road for a few months this year, and this week they came to NYC for three sold-out shows: Music Hall of Williamsburg on Tuesday (9/17) followed by two nights at Webster Hall (9/18 & 9/19). When they were last in NYC -- for Governors Ball in June -- they focused their set mainly on this year's Monomania, but for this three-night run they mixed things up well, hitting many favorites from their last four full lengths, and some cuts from the EPs too. We've got a set of pictures from the MHOW show, and the setlists and videos from all three, in this post.

I caught the second Webster Hall show, and it had all the elements you'd expect from a Deerhunter show (killer light show, noise freakouts, and a Bradford Cox speech), but still found ways to take you by surprise. Like supernatural live bands Sonic Youth or Swans, Deerhunter have a way of bringing new life to a song every time, and never really try to replicate the version on their record. Last night, live staple "Don't Cry" was the maybe heaviest I've seen it yet. The sensory overload at the end of "Monomania" was thrilling as ever, but the way it faded into "Twilight at Carbon Lake" was possibly the most satisfying moment of the night. Those masterful transitions -- another being when they worked in the glammy rocker "Neon Junkyard" after the noisy, atmospheric build of "Octet" -- is what keeps them interesting and unpredictable each time.

The MHOW show was opened by Mas Ysa (who also opens for Delorean at Webster Hall and just released a new song that you can stream below) and Lonnie Holley (more on him here). Both Webster Hall shows were opened by Crystal Stilts (who play NYC again on Halloween), and the first night also featured Sleepy Doug Shaw, while the second had Blues Control. After the final show, Bradford Cox headed to Glasslands to DJ the afterparty. Did you check that out? How was it?

Delorean

Barcelona synth pop band Delorean had been popping up a few times earlier this year, after we hadn't heard much from them in a while.

We thought it was weird that Delorean were coming all the way to Philly without stopping in NYC so we're pleased to learn that one day before the Philly show they'll be stopping in Brooklyn for a show at 285 Kent on April 11. The Philly show is with Autre Ne Veut, Doldrums and Jacques Greene, but for the NYC show Delorean will play with Mas Ysa, Van Rivers, and True Panther Sound System. Tickets for that one are on sale now.

Autre Ne Veut @ BrooklynVegan SXSW 2013
SXSW 2013 photos by Kevin Figueroa

"It was 85 degrees [Saturday] afternoon with the sun beating down hard on the pavement at Old Emo's. So the crowd at the Brooklyn Vegan day party instinctively packed into the shady spots by the stage for Autre Ne Veut's set. Arthur Ashin laid out a series of songs from Anxiety and, despite the punishing weather, put on a solid show." [Pitchfork]
Delorean (Wednesday), Autre Ne Veut (Saturday), and Doldrums (Saturday) all played solid sets at BrooklynVegan day parties at SXSW this year, but sadly, at the moment only one of them has NYC shows announced. That would be Doldrums whose tour dates bring them to Mercury Lounge in May, and even sooner to 285 Kent in Brooklyn on Saturday, April 13 which is one day after they share a bill in Philly with Delorean and Autre Ne Veut. That right there is a reason to be in Pennsylvania on April 12. Tickets for the $12 Making Time show at Voyeur are still available (and Jacques Greene is on the bill too).

Delorean / Savages
Delorean
Savages

We kicked off our free BrooklynVegan SXSW day parties yesterday (3/13) in Austin at the Main & The Jr (aka the old Emo's location, aka 603 Red River St) with sets from Delorean, Robyn Hitchock, Savages, Camper Van Beethoven, Caveman, Braids, Maserati, Caitlin Rose, Anamanaguchi, Indians, Marnie Stern, Team Spirit, Torres, and Deep Sea Diver. Pictures from the party are in this post, and more are on the way soon.

The biggest surprise for me personally was Torres (aka Mackenzie Scott), whose self titled debut is great, but she really takes it to another level live. Her band is super tight, loud, and confident (her guitarist has some rock star moves) and Mackenzie has some serious pipes that she doesn't even fully reveal on the album. It was a much heavier show than I expected, and if you can catch her at one of her other upcoming SXSW shows, highly recommended.

Torres was followed by other great sets on the outdoor stage (Glasslands Stage), like the noisy math rock of Marnie Stern (who played a lot of her great new album), the danceable video game punk of Anamanaguchi, and a set from post-rockers Maserati, who along with Caveman, cooled things down for a bit. But that cooling down didn't last long, because once Savages took the stage, they were possibly even more intense than CMJ. They played some new stuff that they didn't have back then, and once that album finally drops, I've got pretty high hopes for it. Finally, Delorean wrapped up the outdoor stage with a dancey set. It was nice to end the day with some familiar tunes like "Real Love." Then Maserati came out and joined Delorean for a cover over Gary Numan's "Cars." Not really.

Meanwhile, indoors Deep Sea Diver kicked things off around the same time as Torres outside and they were followed by the fun-rock of Team Spirit, Copenhagen's Indians (who were a 3-piece and were better that way than when I saw him solo), a rousing country set from Caitlin Rose, the new electronic sound of Braids (which we also heard at CMJ), and the show ended with sets from two musical veterans: Camper Van Beethoven and Robyn Hitchcock. Robyn was great and he is especially funny on stage with his in-between song banter. He referred to the overheard sounds of Delorean from the other room as the sounds of devils, and "if they had been heard 200 years earlier, marches of men would have been sent to destroy these fiends," (or something like that).

In addition to the music, Onkyo was there, sampling their new headphones which hit stores next month. mophie, maker of invaluable iPhone chargers, were giving away discount cards good at their pop-up shop which was set up right across the street on Red River. We were also serving complimentary Jameson, and Zico coconut water, and free vegan queso and chips from Food For Lovers. We also had BrooklynVegan t-shirts for the first 50 people in the door, thanks to American Apparel. Also thanks to our other sponsors, Korg, Vox, Blackstar, Creative Recreation, Signazon, WILLCALL, Mirrored Media, and Redigi.

Our day parties continue today (3/14) with sets from Cloud Nothings, Parenthetical Girls, Death, METZ, Milk Music, Beach Fossils, Widowspeak, and more.

SXSW gets underway today (3/13) in earnest, with 83,207 bands* playing SXSW this year. Trying to figure out who to see can be an overwhelming feeling. (Actually, just standing on 6th St. on Friday night is an overwhelming feeling.) Hopefully this post will give you some inspiration if you're among the throngs of people. Or maybe just some new stuff to listen to if you're not there.

Of course you could just hang out at all our day parties (our first starts at noon today!) and evening showcases, as we're really proud of our line-ups. But there are bands who we are pumped to see who aren't playing too. So here are 40 bands we're genuinely pumped to see in Austin this week. We made a Spotify playlist of all the bands (at least the ones on the service) you can stream below.

Check out our list below...

*not the actually number of showcasing bands. But it feels accurate.

Earl Sweatshirt
Earl Sweatshirt

Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt will be making his SXSW debut this year (he wasn't there when the rest of his crew first played), and will be doing collaborative sets with Captain Murphy, aka Flying Lotus' rap alter ego (who collaborated with him on "Between Friends"). Those sets include the Life or Death showcase on Wednesday (3/13) at Scoot Inn at midnight, the Green Label Sound showcase on Friday (3/15) at Lucille at 9:30 PM, and FADER Fort on Saturday (3/16) at 6 PM. Flyers for all three of those shows with full lineups are below.

Earl just appeared at Flying Lotus' LA show at Low End Theory last week (3/7) and they performed three tracks off Earl's upcoming album, Doris, "Burgundy" (produced by Pharrell), "Hive," and "Guild." Mac Miller is featured on that last one and he was at the LA show too. You can check it all out in a video from the show, which is below. Also below is the video for previously released Doris track, "Chum," and Earl has another new video on the way too.

Earl's other upcoming dates include some festival appearances like Bonnaroo, Sasquatch!, and Coachella. All dates are listed, along with those flyers and videos, below...

John Talabot

Barcelona's John Talabot, who was supposed to play a FIXED show at LPR in March, unfortunately had to cancel the show due to visa issues. Now he's planning a trip to North America once again to DJ a FIXED show at Le Poisson Rouge on August 4. Tickets are on sale now. Hopefully he makes it over this time.

John's album, ƒIN, was released earlier this year and features guest vocals from Delorean's Ekhl Lopetegi. Here's what I said about it after its release:

The album is largely made up of impressive instrumentals, but its most memorable moments do come from the songs with lead vocals, like "Destiny," which features contributions from Pional, who has releases on the label Hivern, which Talabot runs. "Destiny" is a low-range indie pop song which covers similar ground to recent work by Matthew Dear and Nicolas Jaar. Pional also appears on the album's closing track, "So Will Be Now," which is fronted by more ghostly pitch-shifted vocals, but they're brought far closer to the forefront than the reverb-coated clips that come in earlier on the album.
All dates and some song streams below...

John Talabot

Barcelona producer John Talabot released ƒIN, his first album released under that name, this week via Permanent Vacation. It's easy to want to compare the album to fellow Barcelonians Delorean, whose singer Ekhi Lopetegi provides lead vocals on the track "Journeys," and those comparisons definitely have some accuracy to them. Both Talabot and Delorean go for polyrhythmic house music, but while Delorean pulls from tropical disco, John Talabot's sound is much darker and subdued. The album opener, "Depak Ine," uses a similar vocal clip to Delorean's "Real Love," but when placed upon Talabot's stark backdrop, it comes off sounding most like the ghostly vocal samples in witch house.

The album is largely made up of impressive instrumentals, but its most memorable moments do come from the songs with lead vocals, like "Destiny," which features contributions from Pional, who has releases on the label Hivern, which Talabot runs. "Destiny" is a low-range indie pop song which covers similar ground to recent work by Matthew Dear and Nicolas Jaar. Pional also appears on the album's closing track, "So Will Be Now," which is fronted by more ghostly pitch-shifted vocals, but they're brought far closer to the forefront than the reverb-coated clips that come in earlier on the album. You can stream both of the Pional-featuring songs below, along with the album artwork and tracklist.

John Talabot's got a few upcoming shows including a FIXED show in NYC with Permanent Vacation labelmate Tensnake happening on March 18 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets are on sale now. UPDATE: John Talabot cancelled.

Delorean @ Brooklyn Bowl
Delorean

It's probably not appropriate to mention on Earth Day that the New York Auto Show starts today and runs through May 1st. It probably is appropriate that a band named "Delorean" is playing an event related to the Auto Show, though maybe it's weird that "Delorean" is playing for "Fiat," or at least that's the rumored artist to be playing the "FIAT Gallery" at 18 Wooster in SoHo tonight, one of many events happening at the space through May 1st (RSVP is required).

Delorean is in town because they played a headlining sold out show with The Step Kids at Brooklyn Bowl last night (4/21). If you were there, maybe you got a pair of the 3-D glasses that Pitchfork was giving out:

Delorean fans @ Brooklyn Bowl

The glasses were to promote Pitchfork's new 3-D video site which now includes a Deerhunter video, and which they previewed on the Brooklyn Bowl video screens at the show.
