The clip was premiered by Beat Magazine who said, “Londoners Shame are a force to be reckoned with…As you can see Steen’s snarlingly visceral delivery really takes on a life of it’s own live – his attitude is pure eat or be eaten.”

That means you could click play and ride off on a wave of pop chords so big your feet won’t touch the ground. What’s more, she’s touring the states this fall & winter. Scroll down to see a full list of stops.

Dead Oceans Welcomes Tom Rogerson: Tom Rogerson with Brian Eno ‘Finding Shore’ out December 8th

Dead Oceans is happy to welcome the pianist Tom Rogerson to the roster. His elegant and evocative debut, Finding Shore, a 13-track collaboration that began after Rogerson met Brian Eno outside the toilets after a gig, arrives December 8th.

Finding Shore is the sound of Rogerson distilling the essence of what he does after a protracted musical journey from childhood until now. He took the traditional route of music lessons and learning notation before starting composing “properly”. As a 17-year-old he had the odd contrast of being taught by the composer Harrison Birtwistle but also working as lounge pianist in a dilapidated hotel in Peterborough.

He spent some time in New York playing jazz, recording with Reid Anderson of The Bad Plus, and had a successful career with post-rock group Three Trapped Tigers, yet however enjoyable that experience was, he admits it was “definitely a diversionary tactic”. Everything seemed to be an escape from the classical world or, as Rogerson himself puts it, “falling out of my ivory tower very slowly”.

Upon meeting Eno, the pair didn’t speak about music at all, but bonded over their roots in the Suffolk town of Woodbridge, located on the strange flat landscape of Eastern England, all heathland, military testing sites, estuary mud and the site of the ancient Sutton Hoo ship burial.

Eno’s influence on Finding Shore began by enabling Rogerson to overcome his fear of committing any one piece to its own album. As a way to open Rogerson up, Eno suggested they try experimenting with the Piano Bar, an obscure piece of Moog gear that works by using infrared beams focused on each piano key; these are then broken as the keys are played, transforming the piano’s note into a midi signal that can then be used to trigger or generate new, digital sound. As Rogerson improvised at the piano, Eno improvised with the midi signal to create a unique piece of music.

The chance meeting with Eno and subsequent conversation about the Suffolk landscape did find its way into Finding Shore.

“I do totally hear it, I’ll listen and think ‘oh that sounds like the bells at Woodbridge, that’s the birds, the wind rustling in the reeds’. I think it permeates my music, and Brian’s ambient records. That ‘is it organic or is it electronic thing’ is so interesting”.

Bleached Shares New Skate/Music Video for “Turn to Rage”

Today, Bleached unveils a new video for “Turn to Rage” from the LA-based band’s latest EP, Can You Deal? Filmed by beloved skate videographer, editor of Boneless Zine, and friend of Bleached, Rye Beres, the video follows skateboarders across LA and features cameos of the band. It captures both the raucous energy of Los Angeles’ skate scene and the seething, rock ‘n’ roll urgency of the track.

“We were stoked to collaborate with a friend whose love for skateboarding culture reminded me of our love for music. We love Rye’s work. He had a vision for the video. We let him run with it,” Jennifer Clavin said. “There’s something special that happens when friends get together just to share and make art together without debating money and business logistics that can often pollute a project. So please enjoy!”

Bleached is currently on the road across North America in support of Against Me!, as well as playing a number of headlining shows and a set at Voodoo Fest. The full list of remaining tour dates can be found below.

Phoebe Bridgers’ Debut, ‘Stranger In The Alps,’ Out Today

To say Phoebe Bridgers doesn’t mince words almost feels like a disservice. True, she does cut to the core of the matter with an enviable economy of words. But to state it as such belies the emotional resonance and dedicated intention behind her lyrics. You’d be hard pressed to hear any track on her debut album, Stranger In The Alps, without feeling something.

At once personal and universal, the ten tracks that comprise the album run the gambit of emotion – a technicolor punch in the gut, a hand reaching through white-crested peaks. We don’t want to speak for you, but we’ll bet that as soon as you finish listening you’ll feel compelled to simply start the record over.

Give it a spin now, trust us.
