British music mag Q just put out their latest issue which has Coldplay on the cover and also includes their Top 50 Albums of 2015 list (not including the new Coldplay album, which isn't out yet). It's got a lot of the bands that the UK press tends to favor more than the American press (Palma Violets, Wolf Alice, Years & Years, Slaves, Everything Everything), tons of the stuff we'll probably see on most lists (Tame Impala, Sufjan Stevens, Kendrick Lamar, Courtney Barnett), and a few surprises.
Check out the full list below...
Bad news / good news for American fans of UK's Everything Everything. The band have had to cancel their appearances at SXSW. On the plus side, their shows in L.A. and NYC are still on, including the previously-mentioned show at Bowery Ballroom on March 25 with Dinowalrus opening. Tickets are still available. Additionally, the band have scheduled another show here a couple days before Bowery: March 22 at Brooklyn Bowl with Swim Deep. Tickets ($10) to that show are on sale now.
Updated dates are listed, with a stream of new single "Duet," below.

Producer James Rutledge has taken Arc, the new album by Everything Everything (who play here next month), and remixed/mashed it down into one seven-minute, super-condensed track. You can stream that below.
The Bronx have a new video for "Youth Wasted" off their recently released album, Bronx IV. Check it out below.

Everything Everything released their second album, Arc, last week and if the kitchen sink bombast of their 2010 debut is a bit more focused this time out, it still pulls in so many disparate styles and elements one wonders how a group could ever arrive at a sound like this. There's a bit of Foals precision, but also flashes of R&B, '80s widescreen pop, marching band music, you name it. And they mostly make it work, at least into a sound that could only be described as "Everything Everything." You can stream the album via Spotify and check out videos for singles "Cough Cough" and "Kemosabe" below.
The band are coming to America to play SXSW and will swing through NYC on the way back, playing Bowery Ballroom on March 25. Tickets go on AmEx presale today (1/23) at noon and the regular on-sale is Friday (1/25) at noon.

Everything Everything have released the first video from their new album, Arc, which is out in January. You can watch "Cough Cough" below.
Julia Holter has a new video for "Goddess Eyes I," which you can watch below. Her tour with Hundred Waters hits NYC this Friday (8/31) for a show at Bowery Ballroom with Moon Diagrams.
Sigur Ros made a video for "Dauoalogn." Check it out below.
The shortlist has been revealed for the 2011 Mercury Prize. The list includes some major albums like James Blake's incredibly striking self titled debut, PJ Harvey's massive comeback Let England Shake, and Adele's 21, in addition to some other interesting choices like Anna Calvi's self titled debut and King Creosote & Jon Hopkins collaborative album Diamond Mine.
Katy B, who paid a brief visit to the US in June, is also nominated.
King Creosote & Jon Hopkins were just in NYC for two shows, including Thursday (7/14) at Mercury Lounge and Sunday (7/17) at The Rock Shop. The shows were part of a short tour which ends this week. They also play some shows together in August and September.
It's also interesting to note the absence of Radiohead on this list. The King of Limbs is the first of the band's album not to be nominated since Amnesiac's nomination in 2001 (though they've never actually won).

Blood Red Shoes @ MHOW
After Chris left the BV Loft Party all the way back on Friday, October 22nd, he headed over to Music Hall of Williamsburg for the Blue Flowers-presented CMJ showcase for a lineup of mostly UK bands including Chapel Club, Everything Everything, and Blood Red Shoes (who toured North America with Sky Larkin in October). Pictures from that show are in this post.
The occasion (to post these belated pics)? SXSW has already announced an initial lineup of bands playing in Austin from March 16-20, 2011, and Chapel Club is on that list (and I wouldn't be surprised of the other 2 mentioned bands end up coming too). Also on the list: Lia Ices, Braids, Asobi Seksu, Wye Oak, Suuns, Sun Airway, A Place to Bury Strangers and more. Full list under the rest of the MHOW pictures, below...

Manchester's Everything Everything make their NYC debut during CMJ next week, playing Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday, October 22 and then a day party on Saturday, October 23 at Arlene's Grocery (with 12pm - Light Pollution
1pm - Lower Dens, 2pm - Kisses, 3pm - Young Empires, 4pm - Everything Everything, 5pm - Shilpa Ray).
How to describe their sound? Their name kind of says it all -- as in "...and the kitchen sink." Their 2009 single "My Kz Ur Bf" really exemplifies that, and is kind of like a collision between ABC and Muse... and I mean that in a good way. Their new single, "Schoolin'" (downloadable above) still kind of sounds like that, but with a hook that might make some think of a PC Richards commercial. There's a whole lot of seemingly disparate elements going on in any one song. Sometimes it works, sometimes less so.
The band's debut album, Man Alive, came out over the summer (in the UK, no American label yet) to somewhat polarizing reviews in the press, that tended to fall on which side of the Atlantic they were from. For example, the NME gave it 8/10, saying:
Thanks to the slackers, there are three dirty words in indie right now: ambition, intellect and effort. Everything Everything don't just fit those terms, they pole-vault over them. It probably goes some way to explaining why, over the past nine months, they've not become the chart-bothering megastars they deserve to be.On the other end of the scale is Pitchfork, which gave the album a 3.8:
But stuffing everything humanly possible into your songs can be overwhelming, if not identity-sapping. The first 10 or so seconds of this record is pretty much the only span with any negative space-- and even that resembles the obelisk-staring intro of Coldplay's "Square One". From there on, Man Alive is jacked up with bizarre key changes, superfluous time-signature switches, electro noodling, and half-rap lyrics delivered in run-on melodies, and you ultimately think, "hey, what would happen if Dismemberment Plan got a crash course in Pro Tools and a record deal with Fueled By Ramen?" Everything Everything aren't afraid to answer those tough questions...credit Everything Everything for finding their own niche, but it's one that's been unoccupied for good reason.I caught them at SXSW this year and thought they were pretty good. That they can even pull off these crazy songs live is an achievement in itself.
