Hundred Waters at Pitchfork Fest 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
100 waters

Hundred Waters will soon kick off their tour supporting Interpol which includes the two sold-out Terminal 5 shows (11/24 & 11/26). There's still no opener announced for the third, not sold out T5 show on 11/25, but we can probably assume it's not Hundred Waters, as they'll be headlining their own NYC show that day at Rough Trade NYC. Tickets for that show go on sale Wednesday (10/22) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.

In related news, Interpol just put the video for "My Desire" from their new album, El Pintor. The video was directed by Markus Lundqvist and can be watched below...

Beck / Sun Kil Moon / disgruntled Death Grips fan
2014 Pitchfork Festival - Day 1
2014 Pitchfork Festival - Day 1
2014 Pitchfork Festival - Day 1

The 2014 Pitchfork Music Festival began on Friday afternoon (7/18) in Chicago's Union Park with a variety of acts packed into the compressed schedule. Friday headliner Beck was led up to by sets from Giorgio Moroder, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks, Sun Kil Moon, Sharon Van Etten, Factory Floor, and others...

LA via Florida experimentalists Hundred Waters kicked off the festival with a 3:30PM set on the Red stage. The quartet's delicate arrangements translated surprisingly well to the festival setting -- standout tunes "Cavity," "Out Alee," and "Down From the Rafters" were awarded additional layers of gauze-y production and live percussion. The crowd grew steadily throughout their set, and were extremely attentive on quiet numbers like the a cappella The Moon Rang Like a Bell opener "Show Me Love." -ZP

Post industrialists Factory Floor performed on the Blue stage and effectively disrupted everyone's nap in the shade with their looped heart-thumping beats and nightmarish soundscapes. The band's show was as much an experimental art performance as it was a musical one, combining everything from arpeggiated synths to random strikes on a wooden block. In addition, the band's singer created some brooding soundscapes by clanging what looked like a drum stick against her guitar's strings, occasionally making a few heavily processed vocals in a nearby mic. Overall the band performed a challenging set that rewarded anyone tough enough to stay for the whole thing. If Swans and Kraftwerk had a baby it would most likely sound like Factory Floor. -MM

Neneh Cherry's appearance at Pitchfork Fest was only her second-ever in North America despite a twenty-some-odd year career. Frequent collaborators RocketNumberNine backed the singer, and the trio delivered a fun performance. Blank Project cuts "Spit Three Times" and "Everything" saw Cherry's energy at its highest point, while Ben and Tom Page churned out their great industrial clamor. And yes, she finished her set with the classic "Buffalo Stance." -ZP

British musician and producer Bobby Krlic, otherwise known as atmospheric drone artist The Haxan Cloak, brought a live drummer to add intensity to his dark afternoon set. Familiar songs from his 2013 record Excavation morphed into grooves that were nearly danceable. (If you're wondering why this is so surprising, listen to his dropless song, "The Drop.") While fans enjoyed the tension and release of the forty-five minute set, one couldn't help but imagine it might be more appropriately suited for a small, dark room, rather than a bright, mid-afternoon festival stage. -AG

Sharon Van Etten
2014 Pitchfork Festival - Day 1

As I continue to see Sharon Van Etten live, her performances only get better and better. This time around, she was joined by new-ish live members Brad Cook (Megafaun) on bass and Darren Jessee (Ben Folds Five) on drums, in addition to usual suspects Doug Keith and Heather Woods Broderick. Sharon and her four-piece band were heavy on this year's great Are We There, but older tunes like "Save Yourself," "Don't Do It," and "Serpents" were also played. SVE provided a welcome, laid-back, early evening set, and it served as a great precursor for Sun Kil Moon. -ZP

Legendary Italian producer and composer Giorgio Moroder closed off the Red stage last night with an eclectic and seamless DJ set that drew from his long list of hit collaborations. Morodor, now 74, no doubt looked a little out of place on stage alongside the psychedelic visuals, perplexing some of the younger fest goers, but he was as lively as DJs a quarter his age, enthusiastically pointing his fingers in time with the mix, and starting a few waves and clap-alongs with the crowd, appearing to have as good of a time as his audience. The mix, a career retrospective of sorts, followed a chronological timeline, playing his disco hits including Donna Summers' "I Feel Love" (which Beck later covered in his set on the Green stage), before transitioning to the '80s anthem "Take My Breath Away" which was accompanied by visual snippets from Top Gun, featuring the vampire ageless Tom Cruise. Not content with just playing old hits, Morodor also threw in some of his more recent work into the mix, including last year's collaboration with Daft Punk, as well as his excellent new track "Giorgio's Theme". For a guy in his 70s, Moroder showed he still has the chops to get crowds moving, cueing enough buildups and drops to satisfy any Monster guzzling EDM fan in attendance. -MM

Alt-rock legend Beck played a career-spanning set with heavy emphasis on his most recent records. He didn't shy away from the hits, pleasing both longtime fans and casual listeners. Opening with the classic Odelay cut "Devil's Haircut", Beck and his band were possibly the tightest act of the entire day. Particularly exciting was his tribute to fellow performer Giorgio Morodor, a cover of Donna Summer's Morodor-produced hit, "I Feel Love." Beck kept the crowd excited for his entire ninety-minute headlining set with a palpable energy during "Loser" and a particularly rousing rendition of "Where It's At." Peep his full setlist below. -AG

Pitchfork Festival continues today (7/19) with sets from Neutral Milk Hotel, St. Vincent, Danny Brown, tUnE-yArDs, Cloud Nothings and more. If you're not there, you can stream it online.

UPDATE: Day 2 pics are up HERE and HERE and Day 3 are HERE. More pictures of day 1 at BV Chicago and below...

Hundred Waters
Hundred Waters

Hundred Waters brought their ongoing tour to NYC over the long weekend, where they played Glasslands with local indie popster Mas Ysa on Saturday (7/5). The electronic-tinged art pop of their recently-released sophomore record, The Moon Rang Like A Bell, sounded great and the band had a spectacular light show to go along with it. Pictures of the show are in this post.

Hundred Waters' tour continues throughout July, including a stop at Pitchfork Music Festival, where Mas Ysa will also be playing. More pictures from Glasslands below...

The Fourth of July falls on a Friday this year and for those not using Independence Day Weekend to get away from the city -- or for those who will be visiting from out of town -- there's never a shortage of things to do. We've got a bunch of mostly musical suggestions for you.

If you wanna start your weekend off early, Thursday (7/3) has a few good options: The Black Lips and Night Birds will play a free show at House of Vans with "special guest" (RSVP is full); You could also go see Au Revoir Simone at MoMa Nights (free with museum entry); and Erasure/Depeche Mode's Vince Clark will be DJing with Mute Records founder Daniel Miller at Bowery Ballroom (tickets)

Macy's annual 4th of July fireworks extravaganza moves back to the East River (where they belong!) so Brooklyn can enjoy them again. Once again, they're also being broadcast on NBC that also features live performances from Lionel Richie, Enrique Iglesias, and Ariana Grande. Here are best spots to see them.

Though it looked like they might not get a permit, Coney Island will be having its own fireworks this year on the Fourth. You could make a day of it, with the Nathan's hot dog eating contest, the beach, take in a Cyclones game, ride the Cyclone rollercoaster, see some freaks, and end the night with fireworks.

There's not a whole lot in the way of shows on the 4th (with Maxwell's closing, so goes The Feelies annual shows), but there are a couple options for those in need. Brooklyn Night Bazaar will have old-timey folk band Spirit Family Reunion, with Odetta Hartman and Gunfight. That's free and you can RSVP to skip the line.

If shaking your hips is more your thing, DJ Danny Tenaglia will give one of Brooklyn's best new dance clubs a tribal taste of the 90s with an extended DJ set going from 10pm to 6am (tickets).

There was supposed to be a rooftop edition of Q-Tip's #OFFLINE party earlier that day at Output, but that has been canceled. In it's place Joey Anderson, GE-OLOGY, and Turtle Bugg will be DJing on the roof from 3 PM - 10 PM. It's free with RSVP bound to be a great place to watch the fireworks.

Speaking of 90s hip hop group musicians turned DJs, Questlove of the Roots has been DJing at Brooklyn Bowl for 5 years now. It's a long weekend, maybe his 11pm set on Thursday (73) is your chance to finally check 'Bowl Train' out. Head back to Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday (7/5) for food, beer and the World Cup quarter finals followed by some Guns N' Roses tribute bands and, late night, LCD/Juan Maclean cohort Nancy Whang DJing.

You'd never risk being seen in a strip club, so head to the classier wine-themed music venue City Winery after the fireworks on July 4th for a special late WASABASSCO burlesque show starring Amber Ray, BooBess, Doc Wasabassco, Dolly Debutante, Medianoche, Mischief Molly, Nasty Canasta, Penny Wren, Sydni Deveraux and more. 10:45 doors, 11 PM show, $20 to get in.

There's also Lincoln Center's "Midsummer Night's Swing" which on the 4th features Puerto Rico's Willie Rosario y Su Orquesta Salsa. And if you can't mambo or otherwise, dance lessons are given before the main event. Tickets are still available.

Another option that includes two shows on the fourth and others throughout the week is Ascetic House's long Independence Day weekend in NYC. It begins with a Destruction Unit show at The Studio at Webster Hall on Thursday (tickets). Then on the fourth, D Unit's Jes Aurelius will bring his Marshstepper project to Palisades with a bunch of other experimental musicians, and late that night D Unit hits Silent Barn. The psych punk crew's shows are always intense, but this intimate Silent Barn one should get real wild (and hot). There's multiple other shows over the next few days including D Unit drummer Andrew Flores' Jock Club project at Bossa Nova Civic Club on 7/6 (free late show) and an 8 PM show at Baby's All Right on 7/7 with a band called Lucifers Stoned Disciples who don't appear to be an actual band. Any idea who it might be? (PS, D Unit's new Adult Swim Single is out now and can be streamed below.)

UPDATE: Destruction Unit's July 4 show at Silent Barn also includes Tomboy (the other band of Ali from Potty Mouth), Emily Reo, Cuddle Formation, Arm Candy, Alice and "Mute Benny" who may or may not be a band whose name rhymes with Schmutual Schmenefit. Starts at 2 PM.

Another all-day July 4 option is the big DIY show at The Ho_se with Mitski, Hello Shark, Attic Abasement, Small Wonder, Told Slant, Crying, Old Table, Pill Friends and High Pop. 3 PM start.

If you're looking to get (not too far) away for the Fourth, you can head to Montauk where Philly shoegaze rippers Nothing are among a lineup of bands playing Red Bull Sound Select's 'A Weekend In Montauk.

A closer beach option is Rockaway, where at Rippers you can see Heliotropes, Wild Yaks and Friend Roulette. Bands start at 5:30 PM, it's free and more info here.

Further into the weekend, Union Pool's Saturday afternoon series "Summer Thunder" is a good one this week (7/5) with Widowspeak and Zachary Cale. It's free, outside, with drink specials and the taco truck in the backyard (that actually serves brunch stuff), and a pretty fun way to spend your day. Later that night in UP's performance space it's Long Island punks Iron Chic with Great Thunder and more.

Another Saturday afternoon option is the ever-popular Warm Up series at MoMA PS1. The 7/5 edition features UK garage titan DJ EZ, plus Todd Edwards, Maxmillion Dunbar, Ramona Lisa (aka Chairlift's Caroline Polachek), and J-CUSH (tickets). Later that night, DJ EZ will play Output's Panther Room with Kissy Sell Out. Jamie Jones and David Berrie will be in the main room. Tickets are available now.

For an even artier Saturday, the Knockdown Center is throwing a closing reception for its Anxious Spaces installation, with performances by Dutch E Germ, Bubbles, Brian Chase (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Trabajo, VenessWolfChild, Rul de Nieves, Cloud Becomes Your Head and more. Entrance is $7-15 sliding scale.

For those who like things heavy, Saturday also offers two chances to catch Thou and The Body who are currently tourmates. There's a matinee at ABC No Rio, then a late night show at Palisades (doors at midnight).

And if neither heavy nor arty are your jam (okay maybe a little arty), the great avant-pop band Hundred Waters brings their tour to Glasslands on Saturday with Mas Ysa for their first show here since the release of their new album. You can still get tickets.

Another Saturday option that won't cost you anything is heading to Prospect Park for the ongoing Celebrate Brooklyn series which hosts a great, diverse lineup of jazz/hip hop collective The Robert Glasper Experiment who will be joined on stage by veteran rap great Talib Kweli. Percussionist/composer Glenn Kotche and Brooklyn poet Aja Monet open. Doors open at 6, music at 7.

Fourth of July Weekend is also your last chance to check out the Kara Walker exhibit at Domino Sugar Factory.

Whatever you do, enjoy your weekend! Stream that new Destruction Unit song below...

Hundred Waters

Hundred Waters have been releasing singles over the past couple months, including "Down From the Rafters," "Cavity," and today's newest release, "XTalk." The new single also comes with the announcement of the band's new album, The Moon Rang Like a Bell, which will be out on May 27 via Skrillex's OWSLA label, and includes all three of those tracks. It's their sophomore album, following 2012's self-titled debut which came out on Elestial Sound but was later reissued by OWSLA, along with the release of their Thistle remix EP.

That's the artwork above. Tracklist and streams of all three singles, below...

Pains / Hold Steady
BrooklynVegan Day Show - Saturday @ Red 7 - 3/15/2014 SXSW
BrooklynVegan Day Show - Saturday @ Red 7 - 3/15/2014 SXSW

After Friday, which came after Thursday, which came after a night show on Wednesday, we said hello and goodbye to both of Red 7's stages one last time with our third and final BrooklynVegan SXSW day party at the 7th & Red River venue in Austin on Saturday (3/15).

Outside, despite the rain that plagued us that day, Palehound kicked things off with their noisy indie rock, and they were followed by the high-energy poppy punk of Cincinnati's Tweens. More poppy punk came from Northampton's Potty Mouth, and then came Mary Timony's (Autoclave, Helium, Wild Flag) riff-rockin' new band Ex Hex, who were one of the most fun bands of the day to watch. They were followed by Potty Mouth's Northampton neighbors Speedy Ortiz, who were great as always, and whose new stuff (like "American Horror") sounded great next to their older songs (like "Taylor Swift"). Wye Oak followed and previewed stuff from their upcoming guitar-less album (they did have their guitar on Saturday though), and the show closed with a super fun set from The Hold Steady.

Wye Oak
BrooklynVegan Day Show - Saturday @ Red 7 - 3/15/2014 SXSW

The indoor stage got off to a great start with Saintseneca, who had a tight blend of Fleet Foxes/Arcade Fire-isms, then it got weird for the UK's Fat White Family, who brought filth and fury not unlike  The Stooges or The Birthday Party. (They're in NYC this weekend.)  Quilt kept things trippy (but cleaner) after that, and Connan Mockasin was his eccentric self too (though he admitted he was recovering from the night before where he told everyone at Swan Dive to take their clothes off). Then came the art pop of Hundred Waters, a mostly-solo set from Braid frontman Bob Nanna which included Braid songs and some Jack and Ace action with his wife Lauren LoPiccolo, sneering Detroit post-punks Protomartyr, and finally a headlining set from the new lineup of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, which is easily their most powerful and fun to watch yet.

Shiner beer was on special and we gave away free Jameson. Veri organic soda was free, plentiful and was there to help you rehydrate. We let in 20 people each day who were taking advantage of Esurance's SXSW-wide #EsuranceAccess program.

Maybe you won a pair of Marshall Headphones? You may have if you tagged your Instagram with #BVMarshall (you may also see one of those Instagrams featured in this post).

All the music we played between bands can be found on our Nokia MixRadio SXSW playlist. Nokia MixRadio were the ones in the pink tent outside all three days.

Indiegogo was there too, though due to the rain, like Marshall, they moved inside on Saturday.

Special thanks to all of our bands and partners and sponsors for making this party possible.

Pictures from Thursday HERE. Pictures from Friday HERE. One set of pictures from Saturday is at BV Austin. More from Saturday below...

Kurt Vile in Austin in 2013 (more by Glen Brown)
Kurt Vile

South by Southwest. Maybe you've heard of it. Anyway, it starts in about a week, turning Austin, TX into one giant cacophonous concert where you can't swing a free canvas tote bag full of complimentary energy drinks without hitting a musician vying for your attention. It's actually pretty fun -- apart from the wasted spring breakers everywhere -- but it can be overwhelming. In an effort to help, we've already highlighted metal at SXSW and given you 10 NYC artists that we think are worth seeing, and here's a list of 50 artists we're excited to see at SXSW from all over the world (a few cross over from those other two lists). More than a few are playing one of BV's many events in Austin this week -- and if you're going, do stop by.

We know most people are NOT going to SXSW (and if you're in that group, you may be sick of hearing about it already), but many of these acts are touring around the US on either side of SXSW so it's maybe worth a gander too. We've also got a handy Rdio playlist with a song from each artist.

An embedded version of that playlist, plus our list of 50 artists we wanna see at SXSW (in alphabetical order), below...

Sonos Studio
Sonos Studio

Sonos Studio is a gallery and event space in LA that has been hosting a lot of good stuff lately with installations and performances by people like Beck, Janelle Monae, The Lonely Island, Dum Dum Girls, Dan Deacon, The xx, Teengirl Fantasy, Merchandise and many more.

BrooklynVegan, with Spinmedia and Sapporo's help, took over Sonos Studio on Thursday night for a show with Florida's Hundred Waters (who we also hosted at CMJ and who just finished a tour with The xx), LA's IO Echo (who we also hosted at CMJ and who are now on tour with CSS and MS MR), and LA's Groundislava (part of Shlohmo's Wedidit crew). The walls were adorned with beautiful music photography courtesy of BrooklynVegan photographers Amanda Hatfield, Dana (distortion) Yavin, David Andrako, Sarah Frankie Linder, Wei Shi and Debi Del Grande.

Speaking of photos and Wei Shi, those who tagged their Instagrams #brooklynvegan could take home a printed out copy before leaving, and we have a full set of pictures from the show by Wei Shi, in this post. Check out the rest of them below...

Alt-J's tour with Hundred Waters hit NYC for two big sold out shows over the weekend. We already posted pictures, videos, and the setlist from Friday's (3/22) Webster Hall show and in this post we've got pictures, the setlist and videos from the Terminal 5 show in this post. Their set was basically the same at T5 as the Webster show, but this time they also worked in a cover of "A Real Hero" by College and Electric Youth (which was on the Drive soundtrack).

Alt-J

Alt-J brought their tour with Hundred Waters through NYC for their biggest shows here yet this past weekend (both sold out). First, they played Webster Hall on Friday (3/22), and pictures from that show are in this post, and then they hit Terminal 5 on Sunday (pictures from that one coming soon). In between those two dates, Hundred Waters stopped by Glasslands on Saturday for their own show here too.

At Webster Hall, Alt-J played most of their 2012 debut, An Awesome Wave, and also included the track, "Buffalo," which they contributed to the soundtrack for Silver Linings Playbook (the recorded version features guest vocals from Mountain Man). More pictures, the setlist, and videos from Webster Hall (unfortunately none of Hundred Waters) below...
