Perfume Genius – ‘Too Bright’, Streaming Today At NPR First Listen

By Gerard on Monday, September 15th, 2014

‘Too Bright’, the 3rd album from Perfume Genius is out one week from tomorrow (September 23) and is streaming in full today via NPR First Listen. NPR’s Jacob Ganz, while suggesting the Adrian Utley / Ali Chant helmed-recording was “designed to overwhelm”, calls Mike Hadreas’ masterwork, “awe-inspiring”.

(photo by Luke Gilford)

Over at The New Yorker, Sasha Frere-Jones is equally effusive in his praise, opining that ‘Too Bright’ is “a profoundly beautiful record that remains intense throughout its brief, thirty-three-minute running time” (“one of the most encouraging albums of the moment, in its delivery of exuberant sounds by a spiky, unbiddable performer. It is outside most conceptions of pop, whether gay or straight; emotional heaviness isn’t an easy sell, no matter who you are. Hadreas is developing not by becoming easier to like but by becoming more fully himself. If it’s hard to take, the warning is right there in the title”). The New Yorker’s “Annals Of Sound” features Hadreas performing ‘Too Bright”s “I Decline”.

Coming October 6 : Iceage – ‘Plowing Into The Field Of Love’, “Forever” Video, North America/EU/Australia Tour Dates

By The Management on Thursday, September 4th, 2014

“Forever” – directed by Catherine Pattinama Coleman

On October 6 (October 7 in North America, Matador will be releasing the 3rd Iceage album, ‘Plowing Into The Field Of Love’. Recorded by Jens Benz and Nis Bysted at Koppom, Sweden’s Silence Studios (and produced by Bysted and Iceage, the new record channels the rage and emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship, ‘Plowing Into The Field of Love’ features piano, mandolin, viola and organ atop Johan Suurballe-Wieth’s razor-sharp guitars and the lolloping, synchronized rhythm section of Jacob Tvilling Pless and Dan Kjær Nielsen. The record has a clear, uncompressed sound, and Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s desperate vocals are out front, nakedly accountable for the words.

On this album, Rønnenfelt sings of what it is like to be out in the world, dizzy with its offerings, perched on a plateau of false confidence, bliss, fantasy and delirious self-denial. The autobiographical “Forever,” for which Iceage have shared the video today, begins with a pretty repetitive motif over the words, “I always had the sense that I was split in two,” and climaxes with a sunburst of horns recalling South African spiritual jazz great Mongezi Feza: “If I could dive into the other, I’d lose myself forever.” At the other extreme, the album evokes a sort of euphoria, especially in the unexpectedly upbeat country number “The Lord’s Favorite,” and even humor. Yet desperation and loss lurks behind. This is an album about seeing, learning, and rejecting things, in a cycle that repeats and builds. The reference points are wildly varied, but the sound is uniquely and darkly Iceage as the record fights with itself, in the story it tells, and the sound it makes. It is not, however, a remotely difficult record. It is the anthemic sound of a band in motion, unafraid of change, filled with curiosity, musicality and ambition.

Iceage will be touring Australia, North America and Europe this fall.

1. On My Fingers

Coming October 21 : Thurston Moore’s ‘The Best Day’

On October 21, Matador will be releasing the latest solo album from Sonic Youth co-founder Thurston Moore, ‘The Best Day’. Recorded in London with his new band — featuring guitarist James Sedwards (Nøught), bassist Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine) and SY drummer Steve Shelley, ‘The Best Day’ is a staggeringly confident, expansive work, one that not only rivals much of Moore’s past work, but also suggests his relocation to England has inspired a creative rebirth of sorts. Keep in mind, we’re already dealing with one of the harder working, prolific characters in modern music, rock or otherwise.

(NOTE : viewers in Germany can click here)

The newly dubbed Thurston Moore Band will be playing dates in Europe, UK, and North America, including Riot Fest in Denver, Chicago and Toronto as well as a West coast run with Sebadoh (all dates are below).

STREAM : The Young’s ‘Chrome Cactus’ via Spotify/Noisey

By Gerard on Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

While at least one observer has declared The Young’s 3rd album, “HIGHWAY RECORD OF THE SUMMER” (“two guitars peel each other’s skins in empathy, acoustics are layered over top of wuzzy crunch and the groove is cinched,”), we’re pretty adamant the Austin quartet’s latest is a stone killer even if you’re at a desk, comfy chair or riding the subway. You can find out for yourself starting today, as Spotify and Noisey are streaming ‘Chrome Cactus’ in advance of the August 25 release date.

Though the band’s next batch of US touring kicks off August 29 in Los Angeles, Austin residents have the following events coming up in the next several days ;

1) LISTENING SESH :

THIS IS NOT RADIO HUT. Smiling (?) label functionaries (functionary?) will hand out the beers.

2) WATERLOO INSTORE

Monday, August 25 at 5pm, The Young will be performing live at Austin’s Waterloo Records, with refreshments provided by Austin Beerworks. A special edition of the ‘Chrome Cactus’ LP featuring a limited 12″ X 12″ screen print will be available at this instore.

By Gerard on Tuesday, June 10th, 2014


“This is a celebration record. After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down and the music reflects that. We wanted Xanadu and we wanted Sigue Sigue Sputnik, which translated into sparklier and faster.” – A.C. Newman

On September 9, we’ll be releasing INTERPOL‘s first new album in 4 years, ‘El Pintor’ on LP, compact disc and all digital formats in North, Central and South America (Soft Limit will be handling the rest of the world). Recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in New York City with engineer James Brown, the band’s fifth album – taut and epic in equal measure – finds Interpol recharged, and ready to reclaim their mantle as one of the planet’s best. ‘El Pintor’’s songs (track listing below) were written and produced by Interpol, with Daniel Kessler playing guitar & piano, Samuel Fogarino on drums, and Paul Banks on vocals, guitars, and taking over bass duties for the first time. The album also features contributions from The Secret Machines’ Brandon Curtis (keyboards), Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. (Beck, Air) playing keyboards on “Tidal Wave,” and Rob Moose (Bon Iver) playing violin and viola on “Twice as Hard.” ‘El Pintor’ was mixed by Alan Moulder at Assault and Battery Studios, and mastered by Greg Calbi.

Coming 12/3 : A Lower-Than-Low Priced Compilation LP Of Matador 2013 Highlights

By Gerard on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

OK, we missed Black Friday by a few days, but if that means ONE LESS TRAMPLING this holiday shopping season, it was totally worth it.  On December 3, we’re releasing a limited edition, one-time pressing of a $5.99 list LP , ‘It’s Been A Business Doing Pleasure With You‘, featuring 9 songs from (most of) our 2013 releases. In addition to album tracks from Chelsea Light Moving, Majical Cloudz, Body/Head, Lee Ranaldo & The Dust, Iceage and Kurt Vile, there’s a live version of Queens of the Stone Age performing “If I Had A Tail” at the 2013 iTunes Festival (Roundhouse, London),  Savages’ “City’s Full” from last summer’s KEXP session, and Yo La Tengo performing “Before We Run” in those same KEXP studios.

We don’t have any copies for mail order, sadly, but hopefully you’ll find one at your favorite record store after they’re done sweeping up all the broken glass, blood, etc. from Black Friday.  If you prefer, you can order a digital version of the comp. right now at the Matador Store.

Coming November 29 : Queens of the Stone Age – ‘…Like Clockwork’ (Black On Black Edition)

By Gerard on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

A week from Friday, a limited edition, black vinyl / black artwork 2XLP edition of Queens of the Stone Age’s album-of-2013 candidate ‘…Like Clockwork’ will be available in stores.  There’s only 1200 of these in the USA, with another 1200 earmarked for the rest of the planet.  So get up early.
