Fleetwood Mac @ MSG earlier this week (via Matt Graham)
Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac's classic lineup of Christine McVie, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham brought their first tour with the five of them back together since the '90s to NYC for two shows at Madison Square Garden this week, Monday (10/6) and Tuesday (10/7). The shows were jam packed with classic songs like "Dreams," "You Make Loving Fun," "Landslide," "Rhiannon," "Silver Springs" and so many more, plus other gems like "I Know I'm Not Wrong." Full setlist and a few videos from the shows, below.

Fleetwood Mac's tour has one more NYC-area show this Saturday (10/11) at Prudential Center in Newark (tickets), and they've now expanded the tour in 2015 including a return to MSG on January 22 followed by other area shows on January 24 at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall, January 25 at Nassau Coliseum, and February 8 at Prudential Center. Tickets for those show will be on sale via Ticketmaster soon.

Updated dates are listed, with the videos and setlist, below...

Sun Kil Moon at Pitchfork 2014 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
SKM

In case you're not caught up, Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelek, not long after he controversially called a loud North Carolina crowd "fucking hillbillies", was playing a set at Ottawa Folk Festival in September at the same time The War On Drugs were playing their set, and he called out their sound bleeding over to his stage saying, "Who the fuck is that? I hate that beer commercial lead-guitar shit." He later wrote a letter (which you can read in full below) where he challenged The War On Drugs to collaborate on a song he wrote called "War On Drugs: Suck My Cock/Sun Kil Moon: Go Fuck Yourself." We guess TWOD didn't take him up on it, but Mark's still decided to release "War On Drugs: Suck My Cock," which he just posted to his website. Listen HERE or download it above via Pitchfork.

Christine, Stevie & Mick @ Target Center - 9/30/14 (via @emilyrick)
Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac's classic lineup began their first tour with Christine McVie back in the fold since 1998 this past Tuesday (9/30) at Minneapolis' Target Center. The show included a number of Christine-fronted songs that they hadn't played since their tour with her in 1997 (the year they made The Dance), and some they hadn't played for even longer than that, including two of her Rumours classics, "Songbird" and "You Make Loving Fun." Videos of both of those, below. Full setlist, which included tons of other Fleetwood Mac classics such as "Rhiannon," "Tusk," "Sister of the Moon," "Say You Love Me," "Silver Springs," and plenty more, also below.

The tour hits NYC very soon for shows at Madison Square Garden on October 6 & 7 and will also be nearby for a Prudential Center show on 10/11. Tickets for all three of those are still available.

Stevie Nicks also has a photo show that opens in NYC soon and her new album can be streamed in full.

Videos and setlist below...

Weezer

Next week (October 7) is a pretty major album release week, which means a lot of major albums are streaming in full this week. We already posted full album streams from Zola Jesus, Godflesh, Iceage and Single Mothers, and here's a roundup of some of the other anticipated records coming out this Tuesday.

Aussie/UK's Allo Darlin make more of their charming indie pop on We Come From the Same Place, due out via Slumberland. You can listen to that one at Pitchfork. Their tour hits Glasslands in October.

A Winged Victory for the Sullen, aka the duo of Stars of the Lid's Adam Wiltzie and pianist/composer Dustin O'Halloran, release their droning new album, Atomos, via Kranky. Listen at NPR.

Dan Snaith's electronic psych dancepop return as Caribou, Our Love, is coming via Merge and can now be streamed at iTunes Radio. His tour with album collaborator Jessy Lanza hits Webster Hall twice in November.

Mary Timony's (Wild Flag, Helium, Autoclave) current band Ex Hex have been killing it as a live band for a while and their debut album Rips finally comes out next week via Merge. It's packed with ultra-catchy glammy punk and can be streamed at NPR. They're touring with Speedy Ortiz soon.

Justin Vernon associate Field Report brings in new synthy layers to his folk songs on Marigolden, due via Partisan. That can be streamed at Pitchfork.

Foxygen will release their wacky, long, psychedelic double album, ...And Star Power, in two weeks (10/14) via Jagjaguwar, but that one's streaming now too. You can listen via NPR. They'll be on tour soon too.

Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, who has also played in The The, Electronic, Modest Mouse, The Cribs and more, goes solo for his second time with Playland, coming via Warner Bros and following last year's solo debut, The Messenger. That can be streamed in full below via Spotify. His upcoming tour includes two NYC shows and a NJ show in November.

The great hip hop weirdo DOOM (aka MF Doom) seemingly never stops collaborating, and next week he'll be teaming up with the young impressive Brooklyn rapper Bishop Nehru for NehruvianDOOM, via Lex/Noizy Cricket!!. You hear that over at Pitchfork.

Brooklyn goth country collective O'Death have a super raw record, Out of Hands We Go, coming next week through Northern Spy. Listen in full (via CMJ) below. Theyll be on tour with Death Vessel and Stone Jack Jones soon.

Psychedelic duo Peaking Lights sound funkier than ever on their newest album, Cosmic Logic, coming out via Domino affiliate Weird World. There's an appropriately trippy album visualizer with the stream over at Domino's site. Check it out. They'll be in NYC to make four different appearances this week.

SBTRKT's new album, Wonder Where We Land, is weirder and less hooky than his last, and filled with an impressive cast of guests including Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, Chairlift's Caroline Polacheck, Jessie Ware, A$AP Ferg, Warpaint, Sampha, Raury and more. Listen at STBRKT's site. His tour includes two Terminal 5 shows this month.

The newest installment of Famous Class' LAMC series of split 7"s comes out next week with Speedy Ortiz's "Doomsday" and Chris Weisman's "I Took It Off A Record." The Speedy song is more of their quality indie rock and Chris's track leans more on the folk side. Stream both tracks below. Speedy are touring with Ex Hex soon.

Steve Gunn's kinda-psychedelic folk and excellent guitar playing are intact for his newest LP, Way Out Weather, due via Paradise of Bachelors. Listen at NPR.

Stevie Nicks' newest, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault, which includes songs mostly written between 1969 and 1987, one from '94 and one from '95, can be streamed at Amazon. Fleetwood Mac's classic lineup is on tour now and hitting NYC for two nights at MSG in a few days.

Cult folk legend Vashti Bunyan sounds gorgeous as ever on Heartleap, her third album (following 1970's Just Another Diamond Day and 2005's Lookaftering), reportedly also her final album, and the first she produced largely on her own. It's coming out via FatCat in Europe and DiCristina in North America. Take a listen to this gem over at Pitchfork.

Wampire's new album, Bazaar, due via Polyvinyl, is genuinely weird but also genuinely rocking. Check it out for yourself, below. They'll be touring with TOPS and also playing CMJ.

Weezer have gone for the "comeback" album a few times already, and they're going for it again on Everything Will Be Alright in the End. Does it live up? Is it a return to form? (I'd say it's a return to Green Album, personally.) Hear it for yourself on iTunes Radio.

And lastly, this one's not a full album stream, but speaking of '90s bands making returns to form, Rancid definitely sound like they're doing just that with the three songs they put out from their new album, ...Honor Is All We Know, due out 10/27 via Hellcat/Epitaph. It was produced by Bad Religion guitarist/Epitaph CEO Brett Gurewitz (whose band is also riding the "do it like we did in our prime" train). Watch a video with those three tracks below.

two of Stevie's self portraits
Stevie

This October, Steve Nicks will have a variety of her self portraits on display in NYC for a photo show called "24 K Gold," ArtsBeat reports. The shots were all taken between 1975 and 1987 and were selected by Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart. The show first happens at 201 Mulberry St on October 10 & 11 and then at the Morrison Hotel Gallery (116 Prince St) from October 12 - Halloween. If you're wondering why Stevie got engaged in self portraits, the ArtsBeat article sheds more light:

"I wanted to learn how to become a photographer," Ms. Nicks said in comments forwarded by her spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg. "And I don't sleep at night, so I thought, who am I going to ask to stay up all night, and then do a show tomorrow? So I'm not going to get Christine," she said, referring to Christine McVie, her colleague in Fleetwood Mac. "She's going to say, 'Are you crazy? I'm going to the bar. Bye.'"

In search of variety, Ms. Nicks used props and costumes, often tinkering with lighting and placement through the night. "I did everything," she said. "I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director -- it was my joy. I was the model."

Stevie's also got a similarly named solo album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault, coming October 7 via Warner Bros, just before the photo show begins. She just put out the track "24 Karat Gold" today. Stream that (via Parade), with the tracklist, below.

And she'll be on tour with Fleetwood Mac's classic lineup (Christine McVie, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and Lindsey Buckingham included) hitting NYC that month too on October 6 & 7 at Madison Square Garden. Tickets for those shows are still available.

Song stream below...

Sylvan Esso & Dana Buoy @ Emo's - 8/17/2014

Originally scheduled to be at the smaller Parish, Sylvan Esso's headlining Austin show on Sunday was moved up to the much bigger Emo's, which also sold out. Amelia told the crowd it was their biggest show yet. That definitely won't be true anymore after they headline Terminal 5 in NYC in January. Still working off just one album of material, their shows aren't the longest (Amelia apologized for that), but they are special.

Their tour-mate Dana Buoy opened the show with a set that included his cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Everywhere", which you can listen to, along with more pictures from the TX show and all tour dates, below...

Radiohead

"There was a certain amount of science to it. An entire week of work experience students left the office thinking that cutting-edge music journalism in 2014 mostly involves calculating which bands have been mentioned most in NME in the past two years, then hunting out references to the bands that influenced those acts online and finally adding up the number of times each influence came up. This gave us a rough list which our editorial team - heads swimming with all of the bands that Wolf Alice (or whoever) have raved on about over 4am ciders - then took to the pub, tore into shreds, fought and shouted about and finally reconstructed in the rundown of 100 you see in the mag today. The Beatles didn't make it. Sorry." [NME[
NME went ahead and listed who they think the 100 most influential musicians and bands are (their latest cover story). Radiohead topped the list. Read the rest with justifications at NME, or just look at their full list below...

Stevie Nicks

Fleetwood Mac fans have something new to ask Santa for this year:

Stevie Nicks will be releasing her highly anticipated new CD '24 Karat Gold -Songs From The Vault' October 7th on Warner Bros. Records which will include never-before seen Polaroid photos taken by Nicks throughout her career. A special Limited Edition Double Vinyl Album will be released on September 29th. Additionally, a Deluxe Photobook CD album will be available for fans, which includes two bonus tracks plus 48 pages of exclusive photos from Nicks' personal photo collection. Pre orders are available beginning August 5th. The artwork for 24 Karat Gold CD will include never-before-seen Polaroid photos taken by Nicks throughout her career. Produced by Dave Stewart, Waddy Wachtel and Stevie Nicks, the new album was recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles. 24 Karat Gold follows the release of her critically acclaimed 2011 CD "In Your Dreams."
Stevie says:
"Most of these songs were written between 1969 and 1987. One was written in 1994 and one in 1995. I included them because they seemed to belong to this special group. Each song is a lifetime. Each song has a soul. Each song has a purpose. Each song is a love story... They represent my life behind the scenes, the secrets, the broken hearts, the broken hearted and the survivors. These songs are the memories - the 24 karat gold rings in the blue box. These songs are for you."
And you and you and you and you!

That's one of the Polaroids above.

Fleetwood Mac on 'The TODAY Show'
Fleetwood Mac

Though the longest-running and most famous lineup of Fleetwood Mac toured again pretty recently, it was without Christine McVie. However, as rumored a few months ago after Christine briefly joined them on stage for the first time since 1998, she's officially back in the band. All five members -- Christine McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, and John McVie (who was recently diagnosed with cancer but says he's getting better) -- appeared on The TODAY Show with Carson Daly this morning (3/27), confirming the reunion. They also mentioned they'd be touring this fall, and that they'll perform at the TODAY plaza in Rockefeller Center on October 9. You can watch the TODAY interview below.

The tour, dubbed "On With The Show,' brings the band to NYC on October 6 at Madison Square Garden and Newark on October 11 at Prudential Center. Tickets for the tour go on sale Monday, April 7 at 10 AM with an AmEx presale starting Monday, March 31 at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

The band also just spoke to People Magazine about the reunion. Christine is happy to be back in the band, and when asked about the drama that plagued the band in the past, she said, "Well, it wouldn't be Fleetwood Mac without a bit of drama, you know. Of course there will be some drama, but for the most part I have to say everyone is getting along really well. At the moment the drama is kind of the fun."

John McVie at Jones Beach in June (more by Greg Cristman)
John McVie

Some sad news from Fleetwood Mac: One of the two members who has remained in the band since the late '60s, John McVie, has been diagnosed with cancer. This has forced the band to cancel their Australian/New Zealand tour. A statement from the Fleetwood Mac's Facebook reads:

Fleetwood Mac who has just completed the European leg of their phenomenally successful worldwide tour has announced the cancellation of their upcoming 14 date tour of Australia and New Zealand.

John McVie, one of the co founding and original members of Fleetwood Mac is now scheduled to be in treatment for cancer during that period of time.

"We are sorry to not be able to play these Australian and New Zealand dates. We hope our Australian and New Zealand fans as well as Fleetwood Mac fans everywhere will join us in wishing John and his family all the best."

Earlier this year, their tour hit the NYC-area for shows at Madison Square Garden and Jones Beach.

Best of luck to John on his treatment!

Fleetwood Mac @ Jones Beach - 6/22/13
Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac (Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, John McVie, and Mick Fleetwood) have been on the road for the past couple months for their first full tour in a few years, which already hit MSG, and returned to the NYC-area for a show at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on Saturday (6/22). The tour is in celebration of a lot of things. They're supporting a new EP (their first new material in ten years) and the 35th anniversary reissue of Rumours. And as Lindsey mentioned on stage, they're celebrating the fact that when you go against the music industry's formula (in Fleetwood Mac's case, when they released the "difficult" double album, Tusk, as the followup to Rumours), sometimes time can treat the artistic decision well.

The Jones Beach show was my first time seeing Fleetwood Mac, so I can't comment on how it compared to seeing them in their prime, but besides all the retrospective stuff they were talking about on stage, they seemed more like a band hungry to tour again than a nostalgia act. Lindsey is a wildly impressive guitarist to watch, and not only does he still have the stage presence, but he would often put so much into a song that by the end of it, he was panting, stomping the ground, and triumphantly throwing his fist in the air. He practically screamed all of "Not That Funny," pulled off an intricate solo-acoustic rendition of the usually multi-layered "Big Love," and stole the show with his song-ending guitar solo on "Go Your Own Way." Stevie is still great on stage too and her voice is commanding as ever. She had many show-stealing moments too, leading the crowd in sing-alongs with "Dreams," "Landslide," and one of her solo cuts, "Stand Back," but if I had to say, she was most in full force during "Silver Springs," the "Go Your Own Way" b-side that ended up on the new Rumours reissue.

Not only was this my first time at Jones Beach Theater in a long time, it was also my first time this year, which means it was my first time seeing the venue since it re-opened after being severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy. (The only other two shows there this year so far were Rascal Flatts or Pitbull.) The brand new stage and boardwalk look great again, and Stevie mentioned on stage that they've got all new dressing rooms too. Mick also mentioned how happy he was to see the place back in good shape during the speech he gave at the end of the show. The next Jones Beach show is Rush tonight (6/23).

As mentioned, Nine Inch Nails are back with a new album, Hesitation Marks, which is due out on September 3 via Columbia. They've already released its first single, "Came Back Haunted" (which has a David Lynch-directed video on the way) and now they've revealed more details on the album, including its tracklist and full list of collaborators, via Rolling Stone. It does include King Crimson/Talking Heads/David Bowie/etc guitarist Adrian Belew (who is no longer part of the touring lineup), in addition to bassist Pino Palladino (The Who, D'Angelo), and most perhaps interestingly/surprisingly Lindsey Buckhingham of Fleetwood Mac. Check out the full tracklist and album credits below.

Nine Inch Nails are supporting the album with a tour that comes to the NYC-area for shows with Godspeed You! Black Emperor in Brooklyn on October 14 at Barclays Center and Newark on October 15 at Prudential Center. Tickets for both of those shows are still available.

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac, whose new EP is out now, are also on a tour which hit MSG back in April and returns to the NYC-area this weekend for a show at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on Saturday (6/22). Tickets for that show are still available, but Ticketmaster is saying "not many left."

Before and after: Nikon at Jones Beach Theater
ones

As you surely remember, last October's Hurricane Sandy put a lot of things underwater. One of them was outdoor concert amphitheater Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre. Live Nation has been busy renovating ever since the water receeded:

Along with much of the coastal regions throughout New York and New Jersey, Superstorm Sandy inflicted catastrophic damage on the venue. Sandy generated a storm surge of 8--10 feet, and the ground floor, sub-structures and pathways under Jones Beach Theatre, which sits right on Zachs Bay, were submerged. Much of the 14,000 seat venue was impacted from the surge, from the stage to the seats, the backstage and concessions and VIP areas were all severely damaged.

But before construction could even commence, more than 3 million gallons of sea water had to be pumped out of the venue, which then had to be cleaned from top to bottom. Hundreds of tons of debris and damaged structures and equipment had to be removed from the site...

...The stage and boardwalk and their substructures had to be completely rebuilt from scratch. More than 9 miles of special MCM cable had to be replaced in the tunnels and access ways below the venue. All the doors on the main level, more than 200 in total, had to be replaced. Where possible the venue's infrastructure was redesigned to mitigate any future damages (i.e. the main electrical system was relocated to the second floor, above the 100 year floodplain) and replacement appliances and equipment were upgraded to energy efficient models.
The renovated Nikon at Jones Beach Theater was finished just in time for the 2013 season that kicks off Friday (5/31) with...Rascal Flatts.

Concerts at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater that you might be more interested in include, Fleetwood Mac on June 22, Bob Dylan/Wilco/Beck on July 27, and Depeche Mode/Bat for Lashes on September 8. The outdoor venue's entire summer schedule is below.

Fleetwood Mac at MSG earlier this month (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Fleetwood Mac

When Fleetwood Mac played Madison Square Garden, we mentioned that the new material they played would be coming out on a new EP this year. That EP, simply titled Extended Play, just came out and can be downloaded at iTunes.

Fleetwood Mac's tour brings them back to the NYC-area for a show on June 22 at Jones Beach. Tickets for that show are still available.

Watch them play the EP's opening track, "Sad Angel," at MSG below...

Stevie Nicks / Lindsey Buckingham
Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac (Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, John McVie, and Mick Fleetwood) are back this year and are currently on an extensive tour that stopped in NYC for its first area show last night (4/8) at Madison Square Garden. They, not surprisingly, played more from Rumours than any other album, with huge hits like "Dreams," "Don't Stop," and "Go Your Own Way," in addition to some of its much-loved non-singles like "The Chain" and "Never Going Back Again." More interestingly, the album they tapped into second most was Rumours' "weird" followup Tusk, which has gained much of the credit it deserves over the years.

They also played a new song, "Sad Angel," which will appear on the band's new EP. Consequence of Sound points to a video of the band playing that song at their Philly show (4/6) where Lindsey said the EP would be out "in a few days." That video and the full setlist, pictures, and a video from the MSG show are in this post.

Fleetwood Mac's tour returns to the NYC area two more times this month for shows at Mohegan Sun on April 20 and Prudential Center on April 24, and after heading around the rest of the country, makes one more stop for their big outdoor show at Jones Beach on June 22. Tickets for all three of those shows are still available.

Psychemagik

The members of UK dance duo Psychemagik, Danny McLewin and Tom Coveney, met six years ago at a music festival and after recording a track, "Valley of Paradise," the two decided they needed to make an album together. Psychemagik make the kind of disco synth-funk that we've heard from Daft Punk and Justice, and it's also the kind of thing that would feel at home on DFA Records. They've been spending the last few years dropping remixes left and right, including ones of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and Talking Heads' "This Must Be The Place" -- two songs that you could already make a case for throwing on at a party, but Psychemagik's remixes seal the deal without making them sound like that shitty "Somebody That I Used to Know" remix that you keep hearing on the radio.

In December, Psychemagik released their first EP of original material, Lunar Escape, which consisted of three songs written and produced entirely by the duo without any samples, and the only outside help coming from string arranger Richard Chester on one of the tracks. This year, they're finally set to release that full length album they've been talking about. You can stream all three EP tracks, the Fleetwood Mac and Talking Heads remixes, and that early recording, "Valley of Paradise," below.

Psychemagik are set to make their way over to the USA in February to support the Lunar Escape EP with a five-week long DJ tour. That tour hits NYC for a FIXED party on March 2 at Glasslands. Tickets for that show are on sale now. It's a late show at the Brooklyn venue which happens after The Night Marchers play an earlier one the same night.

In more related news, Stevie Nicks just told NME that she'd love to headline Glastonbury 2013:

When we were there [in the UK] in 2011, I watched it. I watched Beyonce and it was pretty amazing! I had just got home from the Hyde Park thing, so I was just home from my own show and I turned on the TV and we had a pretty big screen in the hotel where we were, so I sat and watched like three hours, four hours of it, so would I love to do it? I'd Love to do it!
The full reissue tracklist and some classic Rumours videos are below.
