Bon Iver at Bonnaroo 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Bon Iver recorded an iTunes session at East West studios which is available exclusively from iTunes starting today. It includes six tracks off 2011's great Bon Iver, Bon Iver and a cover of Bjork's "Who Is It?," which the band has played live many times. You can stream the session's opening track, "Beth/Rest" below.
As mentioned, Bon Iver is touring internationally throughout the summer and fall and will come to NYC on September 19 and 20 at Radio City Music Hall. Both of those shows are now sold out. All Bon Iver dates, including a recently announced European leg, are listed below.
Speaking of Bjork, she's teaming up with the New York Public Library (NYPL) and the Children's Museum of Manhattan to create interactive educational programs for middle school-aged students based on her Biophilia app. Speaking about the program, Bjork said:
"It's not a bookish thing. You cannot learn to make music from a book." "I love books; they're like the best ever," she added. "There are things you can only learn from books, but it's also important to introduce the physical aspects. So for me, it was very important to make, somehow, music education that was physical." (via NY Daily News)Both Bon Iver and Bjork are set to play Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway this summer (Aug 7-11) with The Stone Roses, Refused, The Afghan Whigs, Bob Mould (performing Copper Blue), Chromatics, Cloud Nothings, John Maus, Purity Ring, Saint Etienne, SBTRKT, Screaming Females, St. Vincent, and more. Full list below.
Way Out West (Aug 9-11) in Gothenberg, Sweden features many of the same bands as Oya like Bon Iver, Refused, Afghan Whigs, St. Vincent, Purity Ring, John Maus, and Bob Mould in addition to Blur, Wilco, I Break Horses, Hot Chip, The War On Drugs, Mark Lanegan Band, Adolescents, Swans, and more. Check out the spotify playlist. The full lineup is listed below.
As mentioned, the reunited Mazzy Star is set to play both of those European festivals. Full lineups and the Bon Iver dates and song, below...

Emmy the Great at BV-CMJ 2011 (more by Chris La Putt)
On May 7, Emmy the Great released a new single for the track "God of Loneliness," which was originally written for her 2011 Virtue LP but did not appear on the album and was since reworked. The single came out on Close Harbour in the UK and is backed by a cover of Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You." You can stream "God of Loneliness" below and also check out videos of performances of both songs at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall from this past March. She nails Hope Sandoval's breathy vocals in "Fade Into You" pretty well. (Hope Sandoval herself performed "Fade Into You" recently at 6 California shows).
In addition to the single, Emmy is planning to release an accompanying short film and remixes of "God of Loneliness" and a few Virtue cuts by Dan Le Sac, Dems, Banjo or Freakout, and CSS. There's also a series comic strips for "God of Loneliness" created by Paul Shinn, which feature the remixers as characters. Check out the strips with Banjo or Freakout and Dan Le Sac below. You can download the Banjo or Freakout, Dan Le Sac, and Dems remixes above, or stream those below.
"God of Loneliness" is available as an iTunes download but the Mazzy Star cover isn't included. The single will be included with the deluxe edition of Virtue, which is due out in the US on May 22. The deluxe edition also includes bonus tracks from the Virtue sessions, "Paper Forest (Birds)" and "Emily."

Mazzy Star/Hope Sandoval @ Coachella Week 2 (more by David Andrako)
One of my all time most anticipated reunions happened earlier this month when Mazzy Star (a band, not a person) once again took the stage six times across California (two of those times were Coachella). The touring continues this summer with a few select shows and festivals in Europe - Oya, Primavera Sound, Field Day, Optimus Alive, and Way Out West included. All dates are listed below. While we patiently await for more North American dates to be announced, let's recap what the reunion has looked (and sounded) like so far.
To quote Wikipedia, "On October 12, 2011, [it was] confirmed the duo would release their first new material in fifteen years later that same month. The double a-sided single 'Common Burn/'Lay Myself Down' was released digitally on October 31, 2011. A limited edition blue-coloured 7" vinyl was also announced for release on November 8, though a manufacturing delay resulted in its release being pushed back to January 24, 2012. Their fourth studio album is expected to be released in the latter half of 2012, following completion of a tour earlier in the year."
The first live show was April 6th in Petaluma, CA, and the live lineup for all six shows has been primary Mazzy Star writer, producer and band member David Roback along with vocalist Hope Sandoval, original keyboardist Suki Ewers, original drummer Keith Mitchell, and two more touring musicians playing bass and guitar: Paul McQuillan and Colm Ó Cíosóig. You also know Colm as the drummer of My Bloody Valentine and 1/2 of Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions (who were active again in 2009 and 2010).
The setlists were very similar at all the shows and ranged between 9 songs (Coachella week one) to 12 songs (Sacramento and Santa Cruz). The setlists included new/unreleased songs "Spoon" and "Flyin' Low", and every show got hit song "Fade Into You". Check out the exact setlists below.
Audio, video and pictures of the shows have been popping up, and I compiled a lot of it in this post too. Previously posted week 2 Coachella pics are HERE and week 1 Coachella pics are HERE. The rest, including bootleg links, full videos, the setlists and tour dates, below...

Mazzy Star/Frank Ocean - Friday @ Coachella
This week we're mixing up the photo coverage a bit. We wouldn't normally go to a festival Pulp is playing and miss them, but after seeing them at Coachella last week and two times in NYC, it seemed like it would be better to give others on the five-stage lineup a chance. That's also why you won't find any Black Keys (who were joined by John Fogerty), Madness and Amon Tobin in this post. Unlike last week though, you will find Explosions in the Sky, WU LYF, Frank Ocean & Yuck. No Hasselhof this time, but David did spot Richie Sambora checking out Gary Clark Jr.. More pictures from Friday (4/20), below...

M83 / The Black Keys / Refused
"Coachella's new dueling weekends have unwittingly started a bitter turf war between those at the festival now and those who plan to come next week.After sets by Jimmy Cliff, Madness, Kendrick Lamar, Jimmy Cliff, Arctic Monkeys, EMA, Ximena Sarinana, Gary Clark Jr, Death Grips, and many more, night fell and the massive crowds at Coachella's first of two Fridays were treated to sets by Pulp (setlist & video HERE), Mazzy Star (more on their set in a second), Refused (more on their set HERE), The Black Keys (setlist below), M83, Amon Tobin (more about him HERE), and others (that we didn't get pictures of).
In years past, if you were the socially adept, party-minded type, you could pretty much bank on the fact that all the cool kids in your social satellite system would be somewhere on the Empire Polo Field, in line for Spicy Pie pizza, or wearing next-to-nothing at the Ace pool party.
This year, however, a text bearing the age-old Coachella rallying cry, "Dude! VIP lounge, now. Shots!" has a 50% chance of being met with the reply, "Dude. I'm coming next weekend. Too bad for you cuz it's so cold there right now."" [LA Times]
Our first set of Coachella Friday pics is HERE. The rest, along with the Black Keys setlist, below...
Good idea for a cover...
Four more Mazzy Star California shows, all before Coachella (still none in NY). All on sale today/Friday (2/3), and listed with ticket links below...
As promised, Mazzy Star are playing 2012 gigs in support of new material. So far that includes the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Field Day in the UK, a show at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in the UK, Optimus Alive in Portugal, and now Coachella in the U.S. too! Stay tuned for more dates (I hope).
Radiohead @ Roseland Ballroom in 2011 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Coachella which is taking place over the course of two weekends this year (April 13-15 and 20-22) revealed their 2012 lineup. Last week, Azealia Banks was the first artist confirmed, and earlier today they confirmed The Weeknd (maybe he found a band?), and before that, Jimmy Cliff, Breakbot, and Housse De Racket. The reunited Pulp then announced itself. The full lineup also includes headliners The Black Keys, Radiohead, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, not to mention, as predicted, the reunited At the Drive In and the reunited Mazzy Star (!), and Madness and Refused (!) and Jeff Mangum and many, many more that you can see below...
Music fans have reason to celebrate today: Californian duo Mazzy Star's first new release since 1996 is available now! Streams of the new single Common Burn/Lay Myself Down appeared last week on the internet and quickly lead to early rave reviews and a coveted "Pitchfork "Best New Track" tag for the sultry stunner, Common Burn. This new single is out on all digital platforms via their own imprint Rhymes Of An Hour Records. A limited edition 7-inch vinyl release will follow in the coming weeks. The band, comprising of Hope Sandoval and David Roback, will perform a string of live shows in early 2012. A full album of brand new material will follow. The music of Mazzy Star has enthralled music fans around the world since their stunning debut She Hangs Brightly in 1990. After releasing another two impressive and captivating albums, So Tonight That I Might See (1993) and Among My Swan (1996), both members spent time working on separate projects as well as working together. The new tracks were recorded in California, London and Norway.A video of Mazzy Star performing on Jools Holland in 1994, below...
While uses of songs I like in commercials can sometimes make me want to puke, I admittedly have been dusting off my Mazzy Star albums a bunch lately thanks to that commercial for the "Dust to Dust" video game which leaves me feeling teased and wanting more every time I see it. You can see it for yourself below.
In more exciting news, HopeSandoval.com reports that "Hope and David Roback are back as Mazzy Star! Two songs will be released digitally on October 31, 2011. There will also be a limited edition color vinyl released on November 8, 2011!" That's the cover art above, and you can find the two songs on Amazon.
Kurt Vile at Brooklyn Masonic Temple (more by Lori Baily)
It's almost final and official, ATP New York is ruling. The best Hudson Valley festival to ever be held in a 1960s time capsule has announced the "final additions" including two comedians chosen by Syd Butler of Les Savy Fav (more to come... that's all "so far"), as well as a few new and interesting additions to the Jim Jarmusch curated date. Behold:
Boris @ ATP NY 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
There aren't many music news items that get me excited as ATP lineup additions. This one is no different. Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions, Torotoise, Bardo Pond, Beak> featuring Geoff Barrow of Portishead, Sleepy Sun, Avi Buffalo, Sunn O)) & Boris performing material from their collaborative album Altar, Dungen, and White Hills have all been added to the already-stellar bill of the 2010 festival at Kutsher's Country Club in Monticello, NY (Sept 3-5). All confirmed artists and more details below...
Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions kicked off their second NYC show in three days much like they did the first, with the song "Blanchard" and with not enough vocals in the speakers. By song three, an early highlight ("Courtin Blues"), the sound was better. Hope's vocals were coming through loud and clear. I wasn't as close to the stage as I was at Music Hall, so maybe my perspective was different, but the Manhattan crowd seemed way happier to be there than the Brooklyn crowd. The cheers seemed louder and more in line with the return of someone who we haven't seen in seven years. Song four was "Willow" and all signs pointed towards a great show. The projections, though exactly the same at Music Hall, were maybe even better because Bowery Ballroom seemed to have a bigger screen.
Then, 3.5 songs in, all of a sudden the music stopped. Hope couldn't hear herself in the monitors. Some audience members, possibly misunderstanding the problem, started screaming that it sounded great. They weren't lying and it didn't help. Hope continued to stand there. She was growing increasingly frustrated as she expected someone to make it work again. She said she was sorry for embarrassing everyone, and mentioned that they had spent three hours soundchecking earlier in the day.
"It's OK Hope, we love you," someone screamed. "I'm on the verge of throwing a tantrum," Hope replied. Killing time, someone asked if she loved NY. Unexpectedly, Hope answered, "I absolutely fucking hate NY... but I love everyone who is here. I'm a country girl". She may have lost a few people there, and then she spoke again. It was definitely the most I've ever heard her talk on stage. "There's gonna be some heads chopped off... Sorry about this you guys," she said. Someone else yelled, "We love you Hope". Then next thing you know, faster than you can say Fiona Apple, Hope made one final frustrated gesture forward, and then stormed off the stage. Her confused band followed soon after.
LA Weekly spent a considerable portion of their Hope Sandoval cemetery show review talking about the NO-photo policy. Now I know why. Hope Sandoval didn't just deny photo passes. She didn't just post warning signs all over the venue (see above). She didn't just have someone give a stern, pre-show announcement. Hope basically had her own security detail on hand to blind and humiliate would-be-photographers (and anyone near them) with flashlights. During the second song, one of the security guys actually jumped into the crowd and rammed through a group of people to stop someone.
Ironically the security was just as distracting as people who hold cameras over their heads, but all in all it probably made for a nicer show since I think everyone learned their lesson by song three... well (speaking of irony), except the people who were being paid to video the show. They blatantly moved around the crowd near the stage. One audience member got so angry that he started motioning towards the flashlight police and pointing at the video guy's head who was at that point right in front of him. I imagine he was mouthing something like, "Where are you now? Why is this even-more-annoying guy allowed to bother us with his camera???".
Speaking of filming the show, there was also a stationary video camera back by the soundboard. I asked someone after the show, and they said the footage is going to be used for music videos that will be released online soon, not for a DVD. I also asked if the photo policy was related to their own official filming, and they basically admitted that, "no, that would be Hope".
Speaking of Hope, she is of course the star of the show, the reason approximately 600 people packed into Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday night (10/10) (the first of two sold out NYC shows), and she can basically do and say whatever she wants and we'll still love her. Someone (a few people actually) yelled, "I love you Hope!", which was followed by one of her rare speaking moments: "If you love me, then get the people talking to shut up." (or something like that) After an awkward silence in the crowd, Hope followed that with something about sending those talkers... "to the corn"!! My new favorite line, I've already used it a few times since the show.
Irish band Dirt Blue Gene opened the night and then returned to play, along with My Bloody Valentine's Colm O'Ciosoig, as Hope's backing band (aka The Warm Inventions). They were a very capable band, running through 13 psychedelic songs (2 of which were during the encore) of the the dreamiest dream pop with Hope on xylophone, harmonica, and most importantly vocals. There were many highlights throughout the set. If I was better with song names I would mention more, but "Susanne" (the "hit" off the first record) was definitely one of them.
"The set was drawn mostly from her newest CD with a few from her first. What stuck out was "Trouble" off of the new CD. Yeah brah, that song was so erie live and had this sort of smokey sexuality to it. Speaking of sexuality, Hope had on a flower dress that was pretty short on her, I couldn't help from checking out her legs, but of course I restrained myself from looking up her skirt (I'm into her, but I'm not a creep either)." [Alex Caprio]Um... No comment on that guy, but it's safe to say that there was plenty to look at during the show, not the least of which was the stunning visuals being projected on to a white sheet on the back of the stage, all seemingly-perfectly synced with the songs they were playing. I can't wait to see the videos (and the show again at Bowery).
There were a few technical issues - the mic in front of Hope's harmonica wasn't working at one point which caused her to get frustrated. She kept motioning at the sound person until she finally walked over to him (side stage), but I think the problems and funny moments only add to the show. If everything went perfectly, Hope would just stand there, quietly, do her thing, and then exit the stage as quickly as possible (which would be fine too).
Like in 2002 (when photography also wasn't allowed) (when Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions played two nights in a row at Bowery Ballroom), they didn't play even one Mazzy Star song, but like Anonymous said, it didn't matter. The new songs are great, as is most anything Hope sings on. For Mazzy, we'll have to wait for the reunion (side note: I was thinking how Hope is probably not that famous because everyone always used to think her name was Mazzy Star... "Hope Sandoval".. "who?"... "Mazzy Star"... "OHHHH".)
They do it again tonight (10/12) at Bowery Ballroom . A picture of the merch and the setlist from Music Hall (and a video), below...
Hope Sandoval @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery - September 29 (by Luz Gallardo)
"There was no photography allowed in the venue when Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions, the band featuring the revered Mazzy Star vocalist and My Bloody Valentine's Colm Ó Cíosóig, played Hollywood Forever [on September 29th] in a concert marking the release of its latest album Through the Devil Softly. Absolutely none. This rule was stated no fewer than six times on printouts that lined the entrance and parlor room. Perhaps that was for the best. The glare of camera flashes and cell phones pointed toward the stage might have ruined the carefully crafted ambience of the gathering.The above-described show happened only a couple days after Bon Iver's graveyard show in the same exact location, but got almost no attention (compared to the Bon Iver show anyway). That's partially due to the no-photography thing I guess, but still sad (I wish I planned a vacation around going to both).
With its stone facade, a courtyard lined with twinkling palm trees and mosaic floors, the venue looked like a cross between an Old Hollywood apartment building and a mausoleum. This was seemingly appropriate, as there are probably more than a few people who did time in art deco structures off of Vine or Gower or Franklin who now spend eternity interred in this famed cemetery." [LA Weekly]
Anyway, Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions' new album is out now on Nettwerk who also re-released 2001's Bavarian Fruit Bread. Buy it so that Hope knows people care and she keeps making music (though she has already admitted plans for more Mazzy Star).
Dirt Blue Gene is an Irish shoegaze band that is on tour with Hope, and shares members with her band. Some recent live videos, the setlist from San Francisco, and all dates below...
"Hope formed The Warm Inventions and released their first album called Bavarian Fruit Bread, in 2001. This album sounds little different in terms of theme, voice, and instrumentation from that of her work with Mazzy Star. Subsequently, The Warm Inventions released three EPs but received very little commercial success, one video on MTV, and very little radio play. Hope recorded a song, "Wild Roses", for a compilation CD released by Air France titled In The Air (2008). Hope and The Warm Inventions will release their second album, Through The Devil Softly, on September 29, 2009. In live performance, Hope prefers to play in near darkness with only a dim backlight." [Wikipedia]As promised, Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions will be supporting their new album on a tour of North America this fall. All dates haven't been announced, but a few are being released here and there including October 10 @ Music Hall of Williamsburg and October 12 at Bowery Ballroom!! Tickets for the NYC shows are on sale Friday at noon. All other known dates below...
Colm & Hope...
Below, you can see the artwork for Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions' new record, Through The Devil Softly, out September 29th (changed from the original 9/15 date) on Nettwerk Records. You can pre-order the album at Amazon starting Wednesday.
The album's first single, "Blanchard" is posted above. The album's first single, "Blanchard," and its second track, "Wild Roses," are posted above. "Blanchard" is the track we posted with the album announcement. "Wild Roses" is actually from that Air France compilation, but is also on the new album (it's possible the album version is slightly different) (though they are definitely both the same length).
Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions have a set of UK & Ireland tour dates scheduled for the fall (below). North American dates are still TBA.
Hope hasn't given up working with her other band, Mazzy Star, either! Rolling Stone wrote on July 7th...
Sandoval confirms her and her bandmate David Roback haven't called it quits and they are still working on their anticipated fourth album. But she declines to give many specifics. "It's true we're still together," she says. "We're almost finished [with the record]. But I have no idea what that means."Warm Inventions cover art, tracklist and tour dates, below...

"New Warm Inventions record is coming out in September. Honest. - Anonymous | July 7, 2009 1:01 PM"
"Since the release of Mazzy Star's debut album She Hangs Brightly, Hope Sandoval has defined the sound and style of California psychedelic dream pop. The world took notice when the breakthrough single "Fade Into You" (from sophomore album So Tonight That I Might See) hit the airwaves and MTV heavy rotation.It was just two months ago when I last stalked Hope. I had no clue at the time that she was coming back so completely. According to the newly redesigned HopeSandoval.com, the shows will be Hope on vocals, glockenspeil, harmonica, and Colm O'Ciosoig on drums. I wonder where they'll play. In 2002 it was two awesome nights at Bowery Ballroom.
Sandoval's trademark vocals helped to make her a modern day music icon. Now the revered singer returns along side My Bloody Valentine's Colm O'Ciosoig to deliver her long awaited sophomore album Through The Devil Softly on September 15.
Over the past decade, the sought after vocalist has collaborated with artists from across the musical landscape: The Jesus & Mary Chain, Air, Death in Vegas, The Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack and Bert Jansch, to count a few.
In 2001, she joined Colm O'Ciosoig to form Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions and release their debut Bavarian Fruit Bread. Now on Through The Devil Softly, the definitive star of the Paisley Underground scene reignites her trademark sound in an epic journey across the 11-song album. The project continues the laid-back, slowcore sound they are renowned for and places Sandoval's sensuous, hypnotic voice in the forefront. Recorded in both Northern California and the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland, the spare, subtle arrangements reinforce Sandoval's gentle vocal style.
An extensive North American tour is planned for Fall 09, with dates in the UK and Europe to follow. -[Nettwerk Records]
Track one from the new album is available for download above.

Every once in a while I go on a hunt for anything Hope Sandoval. Last time I found the track she did for Air France and news of her rumored appearance on the next Massive Attack album. This time I found a nice article on PopMatters, and the above picture! Apparently it was taken around Christmas with her relatives and given to fans on a message board by her nephew.
