QOTSA announce new Canadian dates release Smooth Sailing video

16 April 2014

Having returned from a triumphant co-headlining Australia/New Zealand jaunt with NIN, Queens Of The Stone Age have wasted no time in teaming with director Hiro Murai for the just unveiled cinematic mini-epic for “Smooth Sailing,” the latest single from the hailed, hailed and more hailed international #1 album … Like Clockwork (Matador).

The definitely NSFW “Smooth Sailing” follows QOTSA’s Joshua Homme and cohorts on a delirious adventure that blossoms from garden variety drunken shenanigans to possibly the most nightmarishly accurate live action interpretation of a QOTSA song to date. Seriously, “Smooth Sailing” lends a new meaning to 3-D musical cinema—that is, it turns the 3 D’s into Drinking, Drugs and Death.

The band has also confirmed new concert dates in London, Oshawa, Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec City in July as below:

Saturday, July 5th – Oshawa General Motors Centre
Sunday, July 6th – London Budweiser Gardens
Tuesday, July 8th – Ottawa Bluesfest
Wednesday, July 9th – Montreal Bell Centre
Thursday, July 10th – Festival D’ete de Quebec

COPENHAGEN’S LOWER SIGN TO MATADOR, ANNOUNCE DEBUT FULL-LENGTH, SEEK WARMER CLIMES, OUT 6/17

3 April 2014

Copenhagen quartet Lower have announced that they’ve signed with Matador, and their eagerly anticipated debut album, Seek Warmer Climes, will see release June 17th.

The record sparkles with the harmonic dissonance and high-strung urgency of their underground rock forebears, but Lower ­– Adrian Toubro (vocals), Simon Formann (guitar), Kristian Emdal (bass) and Anton Rothstein (drums) – also channel the romance and drama of great singer-songwriters, from late-period Scott Walker to Bryan Ferry. The result is a hugely ambitious and affecting rock album that enters deeply personal and unusual sonic and topical spaces.

Certainly, you don’t have to dig deep to hear how far Lower’s music sits from the traditional concerns of modern rock music. Toubro’s lyrics are finely wrought emotional dramas that, in their poetic construction and raw honesty of delivery, gesture to the music of Walker or Leonard Cohen. “Every song on the record deals in some way with personal development, be it emotional or cosmetic,” says Toubro. “How to act in different social contexts, and to acclimatize oneself into a given situation without losing face.”

They’ve shared the first single off the record, “Lost Weight, Perfect Skin,” a perfect representation of the trauma inherent in “cosmetic improvement.”

LISTEN TO “LOST WEIGHT, PERFECT SKIN” HERE

Seek Warmer Climes Tracklist:
01. Another Life  
02. Daft Persuasion
03. Lost Weight, Perfect Skin
04. Unkempt And Uncaring
05. Expanding Horizons (Dar Es Salam)
06. Bastard Tactics  
07. Soft Option  
08. Craver  
09. Tradition  
10. Arrows

Coming May 5 – Savages: Fuckers / Dream Baby Dream 12″

27 March 2014

Can you believe it’s nearly a year since the release of Silence Yourself?

In that time I moved house, reached an age milestone and got a dog. Not to mention changing my hair colour three times and going on a juice cleanse. Pretty sure some sorta midlife crisis thing is going on, especially as I’m sharing all this on the www right now.

To mark their milestone of one year since the release of their debut album, Savages are releasing a 12″ of two new tracks.

Recorded live at the London Forum show on November 6, 2013 – exactly halfway through the band’s year – the record captures the full sonic intensity of Savages live performance on the 10-minute-plus ‘Fuckers’, the live set’s notorious closer; as well as their more mesmeric side on a sinuous cover of Suicide’s timeless ‘Dream Baby Dream’.

Fuckers / Dream Baby Dream is out May 5/6 dependent on what side of the ocean you’re on. 12″ vinyl and Digital Download.
