Slowdive Are Back with Their First New Album in Twenty-Two Years

November 10th, 2017

Shoegaze pioneers Slowdive—now Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar and keys), Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar and keys), Nick Chaplin (bass), Christian Savill (guitar) and Simon Scott (drums)—formed in Reading, in South East England, back in ’89. They’d go on to employ what AllMusic calls “atmospheric harmonies, rippling processed guitars and an ambient production sensibility” in releasing three beloved albums, Just for a Day (stream it below), Souvlaki (stream it below) and Pygmalion (stream it below), between 1991 and 1995. But afterward, with Britpop on the rise, Slowdive (above, performing “No Longer Making Time” live in studio for KCRW FM) took a break with members engaging in an assortment of musical endeavors. But a few years ago, a rumbling began: a world tour in 2014 followed by working on new material in 2016. And this May, the band put out a self-titled LP (stream it below) on Dead Oceans. “It’s strange to call Slowdive a comeback album, because it seems so sure of itself. Instead, it feels like a completely logical next step in their discography,” according to Consequence of Sound. “The record fits snugly inside the band’s canon, so much so that it makes the 22 years since Pygmalion all the more difficult to believe.” And per PopMatters, “Beneath all the stylish and escapist waves of sound and texture, there is a profoundly human core waiting to be sought out and unearthed.” Make your weekend last a little longer when Slowdive return to New York City to play Terminal 5 on Sunday night. L.A. noise-pop outfit Cherry Glazerr open the show.

The Used Bring Terrific New Album to Terminal 5 on Wednesday Night

November 6th, 2017

Hailing from Orem, Utah, the Used have been doing a unique, noisy take on post-punk (think: the Venn diagram overlap of emo, post-hardcore, heavy metal and screamo) since forming in 2001. The band—original members Bert McCracken (vocals and piano) and Jeph Howard (bass and vocals) with Dan Whitesides (drums and vocals) and Justin Shekoski (guitar and vocals)—has been busy ever since, relentlessly touring while still finding time to put out a host of singles alongside five EPs, two live albums and seven full-lengths, including the more mature, 17-track The Canyon (stream it below), released just before Halloween to much praise. While writing the album, one of McCracken’s good friends took his own life, which looms large over the LP. “There’s a huge amount of sadness and death within The Canyon, but the music brims with life,” says Drowned in Sound. “Once content to artlessly bludgeon their way through existence, the Used now stand proud as a complex, insightful collective that demands to be heard. With no warning whatsoever, this is an incredibly thoughtful, articulate modern rock record that stands toe-to-toe with anything released this year.” And AllMusic agreed: “Drawing dichotomous inspiration from happy childhood memories and the devastation following a friend’s suicide, the Used explore mortality and the big picture on The Canyon, their seventh and most ambitious effort to date…. For a band that has evolved from screamo to such thoughtful artistry, The Canyon is a stunning offering.” Making their way down the East Coast, the Used (above, doing “The Bird and the Worm”) play Terminal 5 on Wednesday night. Long Island progressive-hardcore outfit Glassjaw open the show.

Two Nights of RL Grime This Weekend at Terminal 5

November 3rd, 2017

He’s only 26, but producer (and member of the electronic-music collective WeDidIt) Henry Steinway has been forging a name for himself for several years now. First as Clockwork, crafting bouncy electronic house music and playing big stages, from Holy Ship! to Ultra. But since 2012, he’s been making a name for himself with big-time trap anthems as RL Grime, walking the gritty line between hip-hop and electronic beats on a host of singles, remixes—for the likes of Kanye West, Rihanna and Drake—and EPs before finally releasing his first studio LP, Void (stream it below), in 2014. Renowned for Sound called it “a pretty damn impressive debut from someone so enviably young. Just as adept on his own as he is in collaboration mode, RL Grime’s first full-length album is a comprehensive introduction to the myriad of different tastes, technologies and talents in his possession and will undoubtedly continue to see his star deservedly rise.” He’s steadily been releasing singles (one of them, “Stay for It,” featuring Miguel, above) for his much-anticipated second LP, Nova, and now in the middle of his fall tour, energetic performer RL Grime lands at Terminal 5 this weekend for a pair of shows, on Saturday and Sunday. DJ-producers Graves and Kittens open both nights.

Let Shpongle’s Psychedelic Trance Be Your Halloween Soundtrack

October 30th, 2017

Mashing together world music, ambient techno and psychedelic trance, Simon Posford (who also goes by Hallucinogen) and Raja Ram have been forefathers of the chilled-out psybient genre since teaming up in mid-’90s South East England to form Shpongle. Their debut full-length, Are You Shpongled? (stream it below), came out in 1998. “Most of the sounds seeping from the album are borrowed from two distinct categorizing themes. One spawns from the electronica influences of the album, and that is the spacey, sci-fi based sounds laden in a lot of the synthesizers,” according to Sputnik Music. “The second and equally as dominant style is a very earth-bound and tribal influence found in the instrument and vocal samples. Both these styles are juxtaposed so fluidly, the mood given off is celestial and other-worldly while also staying very natural and organic.” With Posford and Ram also involved in other musical endeavors, Shpongle (above, performing “Divine Moments of Truth”) have recorded periodically—their sixth LP, Codex XI, dropped last week—but toured even less, oftentimes without Ram. And with the recent release of new music, Shpongle: Simon Posford Presents the Shpongletron comes to Terminal 5 on Halloween. Producer-DJ and multi-instrumentalist Space Tak (Takuya Nakamura), opens.

A Couple of Shots to Catch Electro-Swing Pioneer Parov Stellar Live

October 25th, 2017

Marcus Füreder began working as a DJ in Austrian nightclubs in the ’90s, which eventually led to production and publishing work around the turn of the century—before he began releasing downtempo electronic songs under the name Plasma. And while that moniker didn’t stick, the musical path did: Under the name Parov Stelar (above, the video for “Everything of My Heart”), the prolific musician has released a host of singles, EPs and LPs—2007’s Shine (stream it below) earned him the label of “promising producers active in Europe today” from BBC Music—filled with his pioneering electro-swing sound. Stelar’s most recent studio release, The Burning Spider (stream it below), which features jazz and blues artists like Lightnin’ Hopkins and Muddy Waters, came out earlier this year. And now on a North American tour in support of it, Parov Stelar lands in New York City this week for a double dip, tomorrow at PlayStation Theater and on Friday at Terminal 5. South African dance group Goldfish open both nights.

Catch Ministry and Death Grips Live at Terminal 5 on Tuesday Night

October 13th, 2017

Chicago’s Ministry began as a New Wave synth-pop act prior to becoming industrial-metal pioneers in the early ’80s, before the likes of Nine Inch Nails. The band—founding member Al Jourgensen (vocals and guitar) joined by Cesar Soto (guitar), Derek Abrams (drums), Jason Christopher (bass and vocals), John Bechdel (keys) and Sin Quirin (guitar)—went on hiatus around turn of the century, but otherwise Ministry (above, doing “Hail to His Majesty (Peasants)”) have remained busy touring and recording. Their most recent album, From Beer to Eternity (stream it above), came out in 2013, but with their 14th studio album, AmeriKKKant, due to arrive next spring, Ministry are out on the road, touring the country with Death Grips (below, doing “Guillotine”)—Stefan Burnett (vocals), Andy Morin (keys) and Zach Hill (drums). The Sacramento, Calif., experimental hip-hop trio’s fifth full-length release, Bottomless Pit (stream it below), came out last year. “Everything sounds so precise, crisp, hard-hitting and indomitable,” said AllMusic. “For that exact reason, Bottomless Pit is an ideal effort for longtime fans and newcomers alike. Needless to say, whatever the type of listener, it won’t be forgotten.” Ministry and Death Grips come to NYC next week for a pair of shows. Monday at Brooklyn Steel is already sold out, but some tickets still remain to see these two on Tuesday at Terminal 5.

Spend the Weekend with Trombone Shorty at Terminal 5

October 10th, 2017

Troy Andrews is a trombone player from way back (although he also more than capably handles the trumpet, organ, drums and more). He graduated from the same New Orleans high school music program as Branford and Wynton Marsalis and Harry Connick Jr. Having grown up in a musical family in NOLA’s Treme neighborhood, Andrews, despite only being 31, has already been playing the trombone for more than 25 years. Getting his start at such a young age earned him the name Trombone Shorty: He first played Jazz Fest, taking the stage alongside Bo Diddley, when he was only four. And these days, he’s got the honor of closing out America’s best festival every year. But it’s Andrews’ talent, not his age (or his height), that’s the reason Trombone Shorty (above, covering the Meters’ “It Ain’t No Use” live in studio for KCRW FM) has toured the world, playing an exhilarating combination of funk, hip-hop, jazz and rock—not to mention working alongside the likes of Foo Fighters and Lenny Kravitz. His fourth studio album, Parking Lot Symphony (stream it below), and first on Blue Note Records, arrived this past April, earning him comparisons to Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind & Fire. AllMusic said he “fully embraces the organic ’70s-style R&B he’s heretofore only touched on.” Further adding that the album is one of his “most balanced productions, equal parts New Orleans R&B sophistication and loose, block-party fun.” That fun is what makes Trombone Shorty such an engaging, don’t-miss entertainer and performer. Catch him live at Terminal 5 on Friday and Saturday. L.A. four-piece Vintage Trouble open both shows.

Come Dance with Craig David Presents TS5 on Saturday at Terminal 5

October 5th, 2017

What began as international chart-topper Craig David (above, performing “One More Time” at the Great Escape in 2016) hosting and DJing in his Miami penthouse as pregame festivities on Sunday nights has become the (occasionally traveling) dance party known as Craig David Presents TS5. The perfect hybrid of charming MC and talented singer, he plays music from across his own catalog, a blend of R&B mixed with dubstep, including last year’s Following My Intuition (stream it below)—which the Guardian called “a welcome return”—and covers of well-known songs, in addition to taking amped-up crowds on a joyful ride through decades of popular music. But you don’t have to head down to South Beach to get in on the action because David brings the party north this weekend to Terminal 5 on Saturday night. And who knows? You just might hear some of his seventh studio album, The Time Is Now, due to arrive next January.
