An excellent show! Silver Apples was just Simeon with oscillators and synths and beats and it was incredible. -justinpaszul

Silver Apples @ Abrons Arts Center
It's not every day you have the opportunity to step into the 5th dimension (and hitting up one of those smokey Chinatown mall raves that are all the rage lately doesn't count.) However, if you happened to find yourself at Brooklyn's Coco66 last night to see electronic-psych pioneers the SILVER APPLES, chances are you felt like you were visiting the other side...That's a review of Silver Apples' show on Sunday, May 16th at Coco66. It was one of two shows for the legendary project, the other being a Friday, May 14th gig as part of the Joshua Light Show Fest at Abrons Arts Center. At that show he shared a bill (and stage for a few songs) with BK psych-rockers Oneida. Behind them, Joshua Light Show projected trippy visuals, which you can see for yourself in the pictures and videos below.
Before a fawning and awe-inspired crowd, esteemed godfather of experimental electronics and surviving member of legendary psych duo Silver Apples, Simeon Coxe III greeted us with waves and smiles. And then came the oscillations we had all been waiting for! Promptly making the magic happen on his historic, eponymously named, personally devised synthesizer, The Simeon, Coxe performed a handful of Silver Apples/Contact-era favorites ("A Pox on You," "Seagreen Serenades," "Oscillations"), as well as a healthy dose of newer, nerve-perking vibrations. Transcendental, dance-inducing, and euphoric, last night's mystical Silver Apples set truly had us seeing stars. [Opening Ceremony]

DOWNLOAD: Trans Am - Apparent Horizon (MP3)
Thrill Jockey: You've spoken before about a desire to transcend music. Do you think this album accomplishes that?Trans Am will put out their ninth (!) LP, Thing, on April 20th, and you can hear a tight, vocoder-riffing rack from it above.
Trans Am: Absolutely. This album isn't about music at all. It's about being prepared mentally and physically. It's about training 8 hours a day for the past two years. You know, too many people today are results-oriented. We want to win as much as anyone, but we're not going to abandon our system now. That's what got us where we are and we're not going to throw everything away and just play for music's sake.
The band is currently on tour with Portland noise-rock band Nice Nice and Jonas Reinhardt (a group not a person). They play two NYC shows. The first is at Santos this Saturday (4/17). Tickets are still on sale.
Their other NYC show, on Sunday (4/18), was relocated from Market Hotel to the Knitting Factory. Oneida (who headlined the venue in March and who play the Joshua Light Show fest this May) is also on the bill. Tickets are on sale.
Album art, tracklist and all tour dates are below...
Joshua Light Show behind Yo La Tengo @ Roseland Ballroom last September
The iconic Joshua Light Show, led by multimedia artist Josh White, remains one of the most visible proponents of the psychedelic lightshow discipline popularized in the 1960s as a means to enliven the experience of live music -- an experimental cinematic medium that is also essential to the visual culture of rock. Artist and curator Nick Hallett has selected four evenings of incredible musical artists, including Silver Apples aka Simeon Coxe (who performed with the original Joshua Light Show at Bill Graham's Fillmore East on a bill with no less than The Fugs and Norman Mailer) and pioneering English electronic musician Sonic Boom and his band Spectrum, sharing an evening with Dean & Britta. Younger talent, culled mainly from Brooklyn's ultravivid music scene, rounds out this mini-festival, focusing on visionary, visual music.Besides those bands, the four-night mini-fest at Abrons Art Center, which runs May 12th-May 15th includes MV+EE on a bill with Woods, Oneida with the aforementioned Silver Apples, and itsnotyouitsme with Steve Moore.
Tickets to all four shows are on sale.

DOWNLOAD: Sightings - Tar and Pine (MP3)
Brooklyn psych-rockers Oneida have already played out quite a bit in 2010. Videos from their January 29th set at Market Hotel, their January 30th in-store at Toronto's Sonic Boom Records, and the band's Ocropolis 3 show at Monster Island on February 6th are all posted below. If the clips are any indication, all three of dealt in extended improv. Most recently, their People of the North (side?)project also played with The Sadies at Mercury Lounge on Februay 27th.
Oneida play another hometown show on Friday, March 19th at Knitting Factory. Also on the bill are Sightings, The Library Is On Fire (at who also play Mercury Lounge on Tuesday), Spreaders and DJ Dr. Z PHd. Tickets are on sale. We also have two pair to giveaway. Details at the bottom of the post.
Sightings have a new record, City of Straw, coming out April 13th on Brah Records (distributed by Jagjaguwar/Secretly Canadian), and they'll play a record release show for that on April 15th at Death by Audio. MP3 from that album above. Cover art and tracklist below.

Oneida @ ATP NY (more by Ryan Muir)
Oneida had an eventful 2009 to say the least. They released a swirling, epic three-disc album, Rated O, on Jagjaguwar. Three tracks from it are above. They also played a ten and a half hour collaborative set, which they dubbed Ocropolis, at ATP NY in September. More recently, they closed the year with a limited-run cassette Fine European Food and Wine, via Scotch Tapes, which has already sold-out online (so actual stores and shows only). The tape captures the band's show-opening improvisations during their 2003 Italian tour, a trip driven by a cover story in a mag they describe as "basically the Rolling Stone of Italy (so we've been told)." Their full blog post on the trip and tape is below.
As for 2010, they report: "we are working on a couple of additional projects and programs and titles for you in 2010...there will be some shows added very soon and maybe another private-style Ocropolis show in our studio." The first announced 2010 gig for the band happens Friday, January 29th at Market Hotel with Red Dawn II.
The above-mentioned words, and videos of Oneida at ATP NY (including their jam with Akron/Family) and at a 2009 Dublin gig are below...

'And for like ten minutes she would just do these fucking amazing animal yelps and screams and growling and all this shit.'
Its a beautiful warm Sunday morning at Kutscher's and Wayne Coyne is waiting for me in a golf cart near the main stage. Clad in his trademark light colored suit, I shake his hand and exchange pleasantries. Then he notices that I'm with photographer Ryan Muir.
"You want to take some pictures? Lets head to the pool."
One problem. The pool is separated by a chain-link fence and there is no way around.
"Let's just jump it" Wayne says, but he's already on the other side.
Wayne is a gracious, charismatic ringmaster/shaman who is up for anything, as long as it leaves a lasting impression, much like the lovable oddballs The Flaming Lips that he fronts.
Starting over 25 years ago as an acid-drenched punk band with a Butthole Surfers obsession, The Flaming Lips have aged gracefully into their current role as quirky pop elder statesmen by keeping their punk rock spirit and freak-out tendencies. 1999's The Soft Bulletin began the band's current trajectory towards poignant and epic melodies, which continues with the release of their new LP Embryonic. It impacts record stores on October 13th, and you can listen to it now courtesy of the Colbert Report.
As you probably heard, The Flaming Lips were invited to headline All Tomorrow's Parties New York (ATP NY) as well as curate the final day of shows at the festival this year. We sat with the Oklahoma native on that sunday (9/13), while a team of men in orange jumpsuits (read: The Lips crew) carted around giant lighting sets, trashcans filled with stuffed animals, and yeti costumes....

some of the stars of ATP NY 2009
What's almost the exact opposite of a soothing set of Seven Swans performed by one of the most delicate singers in indie rock? Try nine drummers (including Hisham Bharoocha, Zach Hill, and Kid Millions among other notables) bashing your fucking skull for so long that the stage manager has to come out to unplug their gear and remove toms from underneath them! That's how I started my ATP Day 3... with the Boredoms blowing my mind.
Starting off with sparse chords on the monstrous multi-neck guitar/percussive device, Eye set a calm and reflective mood... and then the cymbals. And then the toms. And then eight drummers pummeled away led by Yoshimi P-We. And then the synced rimshots that recalled an Animal Collective beat. All of this happened before a ninth drummer was carried into the show like an emperor while doing a call and response with the other eight.
Within about 10 minutes, I knew that Boredoms would take the prize as best show at Kutsher's that weekend. The sheer power of the coordinated drums, along with pregnant pauses and killer synth effects performed via keys, CD-DJ tables, and broomsticks (!) were beyond jaw dropping.
Following Boredoms, I poked my head into Oneida's Ocropolis for the first of many times. For 10+ hours, Oneida basically had the small and very decorated room all to themselves for a long jam session with their friends. Reportedly, the band had tape rolling the whole time (Ocropolis is the name of their Brooklyn recording studio) and had visuals provided by the Mighty Robot AV Squad. With local standbys like BJ Warshaw of Parts & Labor/Shooting Spires fame, Chris Weingarten (ex P&L), Todd P, and many others spotted in the Sportsman's Bar, it seemed like Brooklyn in the Catskills. Unfortunately, I missed every single special guest appearance (word is, and in part according to a sign on the door, Soft Circle, Yoshimi, Aaron from Tall Firs, Zach Hill, Steven Drozd and many others all popped in) but the band was very interesting to watch, alternating between songs, and droney ambient jams.
Caribou was next in the main room and the 16-piece(!) band including Sun Ra Arkestra member Marshall Allen, Koushik, Kieran Hebden (Fourtet) and many others. I had no expectations heading into the set and was pleasantly surprised, although I found the mix to have waaay too much low end.
I ducked out of Caribou early to catch the last twenty minutes of Hopewell who was billed to be playing "The Desperation Suite," "complete with a female choir and avant-garde saxophonist Mark Marinoff". From what little I saw, the three person "choir" did little but coo, ooh, ahh, and coordinate a dance, but the band did close with a rousing cover of Jane's Addiction's classic "Of Course".

More info on Monster Island, and live clips of Oneida playing Dublin this August, are posted below...
All Tomorrow's Parties (ATP) is happy to announce its return to Kutsher's Country Club in Monticello, New York for the 2nd annual ATP New York festival. The event will be held Sept 11-13, 2009. Last year's festival, co-curated by My Bloody Valentine, was a critical and cultural success with rave reviews from media and fans. This year's Fest will be co-curated by The Flaming Lips.ATP has announced the final lineup additions to this year's festival. That includes the comedians who will be joining David Cross on Friday night, and official confirmation that it will in fact be Bob Mould who will be playing Husker Du songs (a whole LP to be exact) with No Age (who also just announced some NYC shows). Every act who plays Sunday will be playing some kind of special set...
Recently added were Crystal Castles, Super Furry Animals, Boris performing Feedbacker, Low Lows and "Oneida presents the Ocropolis" - where Oneida will transport the impetus, spirit and community of their multidisciplinary studio/performance space, The Ocropolis, to ATP for a full day of improvisation, collaboration, and recording, combined with the astounding Mighty Robot Visuals light crew. Other announced acts include Boredoms continuing their BOADRUM series, performing with 9 drummers on stage. Deerhoof will perform with special visuals by Martha Colburn. Caribou will perform as Caribou Vibration Ensemble, with a 4 piece horn section, 4 drummers and a choir and guests that include Kieran Hebden (Four Tet/Fridge/Kieran Hebden & Steve Reid), Koushik (Stones Throw Records), John Schmersal (Enon, Brainiac), Kathryn Bint (One Little Plane), Ahmed Gallab (Sinkane), Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra) and more.Other brand new additions to Sunday are Menomena, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Birds Of Avalon, and Hopewell.
Circulatory System, was added in the last announcement, and have since revealed an entire tour. Dead Meadow play ATP on Saturday and will perform on a boat in NYC that same week. The Feelies have a Brooklyn show scheduled. Super Furry Animals play NYC and NJ in addition to ATP. The list of related shows goes on...
Unfortunately missing from the ATP NY schedule is Nick Cave - not that he was ever supposed to be there, but in addition to being very involved with ATP in general, he was recently confirmed to be only a short car ride away just one day after the festival ends. Full 2009 lineup below...

Om live at ATP 2008 (more by Zach Dilgard)
It's been over a year, but they haven't been forgotten. Om, who will declare that God Is Good on Sept 8th, have announced a string of US tour dates including TWO in NYC... Europa on Oct 11th and Bowery on Oct 13th. Tickets for Europa are on sale. Bowery details are still TBA.
Om is bringing some pretty strong support with them as well, all of which were recently featured on Al Cisneros's compilation for Arthur Magazine, Transmissions from Sinai (available here). Look for Lichens on all dates, with Grouper on a pair of dates and Six Organs of Admittance (Ben Chasny) bringing up the rear of the tour which includes both NYC dates.
Although Grouper is NOT scheduled to play at any of the Om dates in NYC, look for Liz Harris at ATP NY on Sept 11th, as well as on few US dates in September. Om played ATP NY in 2008.
Meanwhile, Ben Chasny's previous collaborators, Sunburned Hand Of The Man, have scheduled a show with Oneida (who are also playing ATP NY in 2009) at Broadway backyard, one of a four tour dates scheduled for the pair.
All tour dates below...

Stevens, who will be releasing Run Rabbit Run (a re-arrangement of his 2001 album Enjoy Your Rabbit) in October, has not played a US show in over two years, and this is sure to be a special performance. [ATP NY]Sufjan is one of the most recent additions to ATP NY, running September 11th-13th in Monticello, NY. It'll be his first show in a while, though over the past year Sufjan has made appearances joining St. Vincent at BAM, The Welcome Wagon at St. Paul's Lutheran and the Clogs with My Brightest Diamond (which you can see above) again at BAM .
Sufjan will be joined on the Saturday bill by new additions Shellac, Circulatory System and Grouper (who we previously announced).

Ongoing coverage of ATP NY and related NYC-area shows HERE. Full lineup so far below...
Oneida @ The Yard 8/29/08 (more by Chris La Putt)
Welcome to Rated O, the triple album and second installment of Oneida's much-anticipated "Thank Your Parents" triptych of releases. In August of 2008 Oneida released the first installment, Preteen Weaponry, and now, Rated O, the centerpiece of the "Thank Your Parents" trilogy, has been bestowed upon us.Oneida's Rated O comes out July 7th on Jagjaguwar. Three MP3s from that record are posted above.
For the recording of Rated O the band expanded to five members, adding longtime brahs Shahin Motia and Barry London to the regular lineup. Motia has been performing with Oneida for several years; London is the sound engineer who has recorded the last several Oneida albums and is chief brah at the Ocropolis (Oneida's Brooklyn recording studio). [Jagjaguwar]
The band will be touring North America in support of Rated O this summer. Those dates so far include a Friday, July 10th show at Maxwell's in Hoboken with This Moment in Black History and Dump (James McNew). Tickets are on sale.
Who is Dump?
Dump is a vehicle for releasing the four-track home recordings of Yo La Tengo bassist James McNew. His recordings occasionally feature guest performers such as Sue Garner and Fontaine Toups. For live performances McNew has been joined at various times by Ira Kaplan (who also plays with A-Bones when not playing with Yo La Tengo), Georgia Hubley, Todd Barry on drums, and Dave Ramirez on guitar. [Wikipedia]Oneida's summer tour also includes a Todd P show Friday, July 24th in a venue tba.
The band is visiting Europe for Primavera Sound on May 30th, then again in August. All dates, album art, and track list, below...
Gothamist: So you're curating this New Year's Eve show. What does curating a concert entail?also on New Years Eve in NYC....
Miles Seaton of Akron/Family: Oh, man, you should ask my girlfriend; she's a curator. The Knitting Factory wanted us to get all the bands together for this last night at the club, and it's been a lot of back-and-forth during a really busy time for us and the club. But it means the opportunity to have Dirty Projectors and Deerhoof play, and also our friend Greg Davis and our other friends like Megafaun play. And also, to keep an eye on what the night looks like for people and the pacing of the night.
How is this going to work in terms of set times? Are people going to have to choose between Deerhoof, Dirty Projectors and Akron/Family?
You know, that's the thing that curating would normally entail but we haven't really had a chance to communicate with the club a lot about the production end of things. So I can't answer that, to be honest with you. But I imagine they'll try to stagger it a bit, you know; start one show on the hour and another show on the half hour. And we also just got two of the guys from Oneida to play; they call themselves Groover's Paradise.

The above drawing is a segment of the songsheet Oneida passed out at Sunday night's show at Maxwell's in Hoboken (12/21). It was the first of eight Yo La Tengo Hanukkah parties at the NJ venue this year, and, as promised, the Brooklyn band (Oneida) opened the night. As also promised, comedian Paul F. Tompkins opened with a set of comedy. AND, I'm feeling really good right now because two (sort of) of my guest guesses also came true last night. Both Britt Daniel and Janet Weiss (I guessed Britt and "Quasi") joined Yo La Tengo for some songs. To quote an email I got from Josh,
Oneida opened.Anonymous adds that there were covers of P.I.L., Amy Winehouse and Burt Bacharach as well.
Then Paul F Tompkins.
Then YLT with Janet Weiss
For the encore - Paul F Tomkins joined the band and sang a Hannukah version of [Johnny Cash's] "Ring of Fire"
Then Britt Daniel joined and sang a few songs including "Mother and Child Reunion" [by Paul Simon]
The shows continue tonight (Monday, Hanukkah night two). We now know the openers for night eight, but who will open tonight? Will it be Titus Andronicus? Will it be Antietam? I'm not sure. Post your guesses and facts in the comments.

Oneida @ the Yard
Oneida @ the Seaport
There have been no shortage of Onedia shows this summer. One of them took place back in July at the Yard. Another was just this past Friday at South Street Seaport. They played, strangely, after Raphael Saadiq at the latter. Their next NYC show is this Saturday in Williamsburg (Sept 6). More photos from the Yard & SSS below...

DOWNLOAD: Onedia - Preteen Weaponry (edit) (MP3)
Williamsburg's Monster Island arts center, home of Secret Project Robot, is throwing its 3rd annual Monster Island Arts and Music Festival Block Party Saturday, Sept 6 from 2pm-10pm.
The not-for-profit on the corner of Kent Ave and Metropolitan claims to be "the only block in this section of Brooklyn that has not been rezoned for high-rise condominiums."
Bands playing the free show include Oneida, Golden Triangle, Ex Models, Red Dawn II, The Trilateral Commission, K-Holes, The Gimme Five,
2 surprise bands booked by building mate and NYC phenomenon Todd P. Cassie, Katy, & Ali and Psychothriller.
Psych-rockers Oneida, recently back from a tour in support of "Preteen Weaponry" (the first part in the "Thank Your Parents" triptych the band is releasing on Jagjaguwar/Brah), and also playing the free Seaport Music show this Friday, will be recording a new single for Social Registry during the show ("Limited to 35 tickets - first come first serve").
The East Village Radio Festival at South Street Festival is the same day. Full line-up of Monster Island events, and some tour dates, below:
Earl Greyhound @ All Points West (more by Jefferson)
In additon to the previously announced record-taping shows coming up in September, Earl Greyhound are playing a free show at Southpaw in Brooklyn this Wednesday night (Aug 20, 2008). Smokewagon and Changing Holes are also on the bill.
The Ex with Gétatchèw Mèkurya (renowned Ethiopian saxophone legend), and if that weren't enough, Lincoln Center added two amazing East African/American collaborations to the bill: Either/Orchestra with Mahmoud Ahmed and Alèmayèhu Eshèté, plus Extra Golden.Also free, also thanks to WFMU: The NYC stop on Wire's October tour. September 3rd is the day to get tickets.
Aug 29th @ South Street Seaport:
"Oneida, Endless Boogie + VERY SPECIAL GUEST"
Who is the special guest? I have no idea, but if Endless Boogie can be considered a clue, there's a really good chance it will be a band on Matador Records. Speaking of which, Matador's Yo La Tengo are playing the very last McCarren Pool Party in Brooklyn on Sunday August 24th. That would be kind of cool and weird if Yo La Tengo played the Pool and the Seaport both in less than a week.
That's it for now. Take a look at the free show calendar for much, much more, but not THAT much more because unfortunately the free show season (aka Summer) is soon coming to an end. Summerstage is already done now that Sharon Jones played and actually I just realized that the Bill Withers tribute was the final 'Celebrate Brooklyn' show in Prospect Park this year too.
This has turned into THIS.........

No lack of Oneida shows lately, but there are only two that they'll be playing an entire album at.
Titus Andronicus played Bowery Ballroom last night with Los Campesinos! and they have another outdoor show happening in June.
Oneida will be performing their 2005 album "The Wedding", in its entirety, two nights in a row at The Kitchen in NYC...
Backed by a live string quintet under the direction of Brian Coughlin, along with pianist Emily Manzo, the album is revisioned within the tradition of the song cycle as an abstract narrative. Art Direction by Mighty Robot A/V Squad, longtime provider of Oneida's lightshow, contextualizes the work as a unique hybrid of multimedia concert and non-didactic rock opera.Tickets are on sale for: June 13 & June 14.
Oneida are also playing a show in Brooklyn much sooner - this Saturday actually (May 10th). It's a benefit for Eat Records at Secret Project Robot and Ex Models are also on the bill. All dates below....
