The Lumineers - Ophelia. Clear Language | Balmorhea. A decade-plus on the road, near-constant musical output, and shifting creative priorities caused the revered Austin duo, comprised of multi-instrumentalists Rob Lowe and Michael Muller, to soberly assess the band's future. What, in the form of Balmorhea, was there left to say? And did they have the energy to say it? Stranger, the group's maximalist, genre-leaping full-length from 2012, had already seemed to trace the group's farthest bounds. And, over the years, they'd worked with a roving cast of accomplished string and rhythm players to craft a glassy-eyed, sage-brushed, instrumental Americana that, while celebrated in The New Yorker, Pitchfork and The Atlantic, among myriad other press, and attracting the film, ad, and television worlds risked pigeonholing them for good.
As they had in the beginning, in 2006, Muller and Lowe worked simply and with restraint, letting intuition guide them as they molded the 10 elegant, spacious gestures that comprise Clear Language.

Feist : le Pleasure est pour nous. “Pleasure” chante d’emblée Feist et l’on devine sur ce premier extrait qu’il s’agit de plaisir autant que de son contraire ; et plutôt qu’un album ambigu c’est un disque de nuances que livre la chanteuse canadienne. Feist que certains connaissent depuis presque 15 ans (son premier album Let It Die 2003) au titre très Beatles en moins optimiste, on y découvrait une belle voix, avec ses fêlures.
Le succès a suivi pour ses albums suivants (The Reminder 2007, Metal 2011) après l’Europe et les Etats-Unis elle a joué dans le monde entier, au Japon en Amérique latine… Pas mal pour celle qu’on aurait pu prendre pour “une vedette”, comme on disait dans les années 60, qui s'avère être une artiste intéressante sur le long cours. Avec ici une tension, une électricité que peut-être on ne soupçonnait pas. (interview Grazia n°393) A Man Is Not His Song : un homme ne se résume pas à sa chanson.

Kurt Vile Talks 'All Over the Place' New Album | SPIN | Profiles | In The Studio. Kurt Vile keeps late hours. "Somewhere between midnight and three," the singer-songwriter says, "maybe the best stuff happens. " It's late February and the 35-year-old has taken a chunk of time out of his busy schedule — family life as a husband and father of two daughters, professional life as one of indie rock's most gifted guitarists — to discuss his work habits as of late.
At the moment, he's in his native city of Philadelphia, but recently he's been traveling around the country, assembling his sixth full-length, the follow-up to 2013's radiant Wakin on a Pretty Daze. So far, recording of the new LP has been split between the East Coast and the West: Vile says he's logged time in studios in Brooklyn, Athens, and Los Angeles. "It's a really vibey house. You can't really call it a studio, it's more of a house," Vile says, before adding an important distinction: "A house with ProTools. " Other details, such as release date and track list, have yet to be finalized.
Warpaint: prepare for combat. One thing that takes the tension out of an interview with a notoriously guarded experimental rock band is being surrounded by pets pooing in public. “This dog’s taking a massive shit,” laughs Warpaint’s drummer Stella Mozgawa, struggling to keep her composure. “I’m trying to engage with everyone, but… it’s a big one.”
We’re in LA’s hippest doggy playdate spot – the gentrified former ganglands of Echo Park Lake. Guitarist Emily Kokal has been trying to make a serious point about rock ’n’ roll mythology. The problem is that she’s wound up in the same line of view as the rear end of a giant husky relieving itself. It’s hard to make profound statements about your music in these circumstances. Emily and her fellow guitarist Theresa Wayman, childhood friends since the age of 11, are originally from Oregon, Stella is from Sydney and Jenny from Nevada; the band celebrated their 11th anniversary just a few weeks ago. In performance, the band seem to experience almost shamanic highs. “OK!” Come Worry With Us! DVD – The Catbird Productions Boutique.

Bust out the Kool-Aid Bursts as Peaking Lights tour the West Coast in December By Emceegreg on Nov 11 2014 Whenever I hear a husband-and-wife pop duo are touring the West Coast, I immediately head to my local Wolmart and buy a case of Berry Blue Kool-Aid Bursts for a cool one spot.
Talkin’ one dollar bill, y’all. Today I received an SMS from my best bro Dunny, telling me about Peaking Lights going on tour in December. Took the bus to Wolmart and got my Bursts.

The Decemberists’ last album, The King Is Dead, is one of the least likely albums ever to enter the US charts at No 1 – wordy folk pop from a group who look like supply teachers? What was going on? It certainly makes their follow-up, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, an intriguing proposition.
Will it once again feature pop songs? Or will it be a return to the lengthy, conceptual pieces of previous records? “I think the idea was let’s just go into this blessedly free of concept,” says frontman Colin Meloy. “The idea was let’s give ourselves time and let the songs dictate what that cohesiveness would be. That was something we had never done. The result is a lush, gorgeous and at times deeply personal album. Panda Bear's MoMA PS1 Boiler Room Set Streaming Right Now.
