  2. SXSW: Pitchfork's Show No Mercy With Skeletonwitch, Trash Talk, Pallbearer, and MoreThu, 14 Mar 2013 14:40:00 -0500
    Photos by Trent Maxwell. Above: Trash Talk. For all of our 2013 SXSW coverage, head here. There were blues skies and warm spring breezes for a packed house at Pitchfork's Show No Mercy Day Party at House of Vans atMohawkon Wednesday. Not exactly the most metal weather, but it didn't matter. The afternoon kicked off with Brooklyn industrial doom metal bandBatillus and Chicago's Encrust. Richmond, Virginia experimental sludge crew Inter Arma came armed with a water stick and expansive songs, while Brooklyn crusts Mutilation Rites delivered a raw, filthy set. Encrust Forth Worth doomy deathrock duo Pinkish Black played songs from their self-titled debut. Royal Thunder vocalist Mlny Parsonz has a powerful voice that crosses genre lines, and their songs felt especially ready for a crossover on the Mohawk outdoor stage. Austin's Wet Lungs, featuring onetime Locust drummer Gabe Serbian, played a set of power violence-influenced noise rock. Arkansas doom bandPallbearer appeared at the Show No Mercy party for the second year in a row, this time with a year of touring-- and the excellent album Sorrow and Extinction--under their belts. Trash Talk vocalist Lee Spielman had a cast on his foot, but that didn't stop him from climbing a wall or spending much of his band's typically intense set somewhere in the crowd. Pallbearer Next, Trash Talk's Austin cohorts and tour buddies Power Trip destroyed the indoor stage with their crossover thrash. The day was capped by Athens, Ohio quartet Skeletonwitch, who flew in for a one-off set of super tight, anthemic, and flat-out fun blackened thrash, and escaped the snow to do it.

  3. Echo Chamber: DIIV: "Fuck SXSW"Thu, 14 Mar 2013 13:04:00 -0500
    Photo by Erez Avissar "Hi Austin. Fuck SXSW. There I said it. Here, the music comes last. 5 minute set-up, no sound check, 15 minute set. The 'music' element is all a front, it's the first thing to be compromised. Corporate money everywhere but in the hands of the artists, at what is really just a glorified corporate networking party. Drunk corporate goons and other industry vampires and cocaine. Everyone is drunk, being cool. 'Official' bureaucracy and all their mindless rules. Branding, branding, branding. It's bullshit sorry." -- DIIV's Zachary Cole Smith is not enjoying his time in Austin. (via Tumblr) More...
  4. SXSW: EagullsThu, 14 Mar 2013 12:50:00 -0500
    Photo byErez Avissar/Weird Magic. For all of our SXSW 2013 coverage, headhere. The Leeds-based melodic punk band Eagulls are not the sort of group that seems to be comfortable inside the corporate shit-show of SXSW. (Revisit their handwritten blog postfrom January, in which they decry the music industry and "all beach bands sucking each others' dicks and rubbing the press' clit.") But their set last night at the SESAC showcase at Friends, following some astonishingly terrible electro-rock-dubstep hybrid thing, was at least a sort of interesting glimpse into the types of hyper-industry showcases international bands get tacked onto when they happen to score funding to travel to the fest. Eagulls' set was nonetheless just as engaging as when I saw them Saturday afternoon in Monterrey, Mexico for the NRMAL fest. The band's live show is more raw and amusingly deadpan than the slightly slicker EP they re-released on Deranged earlier this year, adding more deliberate nods to late 70s post-punk. (One of the guys was clad in a Gang of Four shirt.) Frontman George Mitchell and the drummer's throttling rolls carried the set forward. Mitchell, T-shirt tucked in, stumbled about shouting and gazing out entranced, a strong presence. He saved his one bit of appropriately bratty banter for the end, after slamming down his mic stand and then his mic. "We're Eagulls. If you wanna see us again then come and do it again and bring me some beer." More...
  5. Lil Wayne Was Hospitalized for Seizures AgainThu, 14 Mar 2013 12:38:00 -0500
    TMZ reports that Lil Wayne was taken to a Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. on Tuesday night after apparently suffering "multiple seizures" following a music-video shoot. He was apparently released a few hours later and is "doing much better now." This comes after multiple hospitalizations last year, which were also pegged to seizures. More...
  6. SXSW: Eddi FrontThu, 14 Mar 2013 12:25:00 -0500
    Photo byTrent Maxwell. For all of our SXSW 2013 coverage, headhere. Behind the record-hiss atmospherics of singer-songwriter Eddi Front's recent self-titled EP, her songs take on an air of mystery. Accompanied by a pianist in a long chapel, though, there wasn't anything separating her from her audience, or her words. The stripped-down performance highlighted Front's range, or rather, lack thereof. She joked about how all of her songs are about "the end of a relationship" at one point, and her performance made that clear. The piano playing often fell into melodrama, and soon enough, her sometimes-surreal lyrics turned into the musings of a high schooler sulking during a recital. Luckily for Front, perhaps, only about 20 percent of the pews were filled for her unadorned tales of woe. More...
  7. SXSW: Blue HawaiiThu, 14 Mar 2013 12:16:00 -0500
    Photo by Trent Maxwell. For all of our SXSW 2013 coverage, headhere. "Is that Grimes?" asked a fellow concert-goer upon seeing Blue Hawaii frontwoman Raph Standell-Preston flail and wail in front of projected jellyfish at Resident Advisor's showcase at Elysium last night.The confusion is understandable. Blue Hawaii are from Montreal. They are on Grimes' Canadian label, Arbutus. And Standell-Preston moves onstage with an endearing awkwardness-- think post-drop "Harlem Shake" moves-- just alike you know who. Blue Hawaii's recent album Untogether offered a sparse and chilly take on the increasingly common male beatmaker/female vocalist archetype. But live, they try to be something like a proper dance act, pushing up the bass and dissolving much of their nuance in the process. "If you feel so inclined as to move, please do," said Standell-Preston at one point. Judging by the rough 50 percent head-nod ratio of this gig, Blue Hawaii are on a kind of precipice. But when inevitably judged against current like-minded artists such as Purity Ring-- who came into SXSW with a much more compelling visual and aural presentation last year-- they can't help but fall short. Number of whoops sent up by the audience after skinny button pusher Alexander Cowan unbuttoned his shirt to reveal a tank top underneath:1Admirably emo pre-show confession: "We just need a second to ourselvesto, like, hug-- I'm sorry if that's unprofessional." -- RaphStandell-Preston Times Standell-Preston's voice reminded me of Bjork's: 12Phrases that could describe Blue Hawaii's dance moves: hippity-hoppity, excitable toddler after eating four lollipops, panicked air traffic controller, contagiously amateur More...
  8. SXSW: ChvrchesThu, 14 Mar 2013 12:04:00 -0500
    Photo byTrent Maxwell. For all of our SXSW 2013 coverage, headhere. Up and coming Glasgow three-piece Chvrches have songs. Good ones. And quite a few. Several of the songs they played last night are not yet released, and they sounded like the types of tracks many people could volunteer to listen to many times. Some of the packed crowd already knew most of the words to singles "Recover" and "The Mother We Share". And with their upcoming LP due out this fall on Glassnote (Phoenix, Mumford & Sons), it should get the chance it deserves to find an even more rapt audience. (While Red 7's outdoor space was full during the Windish Agency's showcase, most of the assembled seemed about as interested in their own conversations as they were with the band onstage). But still, Chvrches are not ready for prime time just yet. Singer Lauren Mayberry is gifted with an expressive singing voice and a fine, simple taste for melody, but at this show she didn't seem totally convinced of her own talents. For most of the night, she was front and center, flanked by her two keyboard-pushing bandmates. But she may have looked more comfortable on the one track in which she played keys herself while Martin Doherty took the center of the stage. Doherty's voice is much less distinctive than Mayberry's, though his intensity, his in-the-moment-ness was superior. The hard part is pretty much done: Chvrches have the right songs. Now it's time to make them really connect live. More...
  9. SXSW: Yeah Yeah YeahsThu, 14 Mar 2013 11:47:00 -0500
    Photos byTrent Maxwell. For all of our SXSW 2013 coverage, headhere. Karen O should never, ever be taken for granted. Ten years into the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, she has reached national treasure status-- a fact pushed forth by her giddy, silly, terrifying, colorful performance at the NPR Music showcase at Stubb's. Giddy because she could not stop smiling, clearly reveling in being back onstage after a few years elsewhere. Silly because she's still pulling out that insane, bratty Gremlins voice to maximum effect, often instantly juxtaposed with her more human voice. Terrifying because she can curdle blood as well as any metal howler. And colorful because of her yellow jacket and shiny silver vest (not to mention a fluffy tinsel boa). There were old songs (including a priceless rendition of "Art Star") and new songs (the satisfyingly twitchy title track from their forthcoming album Mosquito, a creepy slow-mover that brought to mind Fever Ray, a stomp through the single "Sacrilege" with a full gospel choir pumped in, and more). And there was "Maps", which was introduced by both Karen's Gremlin voice and non-Gremlin voice. It's like she's still a little self-conscious about "the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' love song" amidst the corroded tones of nearly every other one of the band's tracks. But it's that tension between the common and the bizarre-- the sweet and the horrible-- that has helped these guys endure. Number of people taking videos and photos in front of me with their iPad: One, which is one too many. Note to the world: This is not an OK thing to do. When you take a picture/video with your iPad at a concert you are ruining the lives of those behind you as well as your own because those pictures will not turn out well. Number of Karen O horror-movie-murder yelps: At least 20Best light-giving costume piece: Karen's miner's headlampNumber of uncontrollable grins from Karen: At least a dozenRatio of joy-based grins to possibly-demon-possessed grins: 1:1 More...
  10. Listen: The-Dream Raps, Gets Pissed Off on New Track "Tron"Thu, 14 Mar 2013 11:39:00 -0500
    The-Dream: "TRON" on SoundCloud. The-Dream: "Parental Advisory" on SoundCloud. Update: The-Dream has also shared "Parental Advisory", a 50-minute "retrospective mix" he made with Mick Boogie. It cycles through an assortment of his old stand-bys, from "Shawty is the Shit" to "Roc" and beyond. Listen above. On his new single, "TRON", the-Dream attempts an angry rap track. He applies a warped filter to his vocals, rapping, "The fuck I look like, hatin' R&B niggas?/ I am R&B, nigga." Sounds like someone's been listening to "5AM in Toronto" on repeat and feeling inspired. "TRON" is set to appear on the-Dream's upcoming album, IV Play (formerly stylized Fourplay), which is out on May 7. Watch Dream in an episode of Pitchfork.tv's "+1": More...
