Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile : KCRW Session Today, Amoeba Hollywood Instore Thursday ‘Sea Lice By The Seaside’ Webcast Next Monday,

We’re a few days away from the release of Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile’s hotly anticipated collaboration album, ‘Lotta Sea Lice’ and as you’d expect, they’re an insane amount of activity surrounding this momentous event. After a Sunday afternoon set at San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival the duo visit KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic for a live broadcast starting at 11:15am pacific time TODAY. Thursday, there’s a free show at Hollywood’s Amoeba Records, who’ve somehow managed to obtain copies of ‘Lotta Sea Lice’ one day early. And on Monday afternoon, there’s a Pitchfork Live webcast taking place from what’s said to be Jimmy Page’s former Malibu residence (this seems suspicious as we had it good authority he took his holidays in Cliftwood, NJ…or maybe that was Southside Johnny. Hard to remember sometimes)

Belle and Sebastian – ‘How To Solve Our Human Problems’ EP’s & Box Set, “I’ll Be Your Pilot” premiere

Harkening back to their 1997 release of three consecutive EPs (‘Dog On Wheels’, ‘Lazy Line Painter Jane’, and ‘3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light’), Belle and Sebastian will release three new EPs under the umbrella title ‘How To Solve Our Human Problems’, with the first EP coming out on December 8th, the second on January 19th, and the third on February 16th  (vinyl and digital only).  The EP trilogy will culminate with a compilation CD and a limited vinyl box set containing all three EPs, with the option of a box just for EP3 for those who have already purchased 1 and 2.

Belle and Sebastian has revealed a new song titled “I’ll Be Your Pilot”, which can be found on EP2.  The single takes as its subject Stuart Murdoch’s young son: “Having your first kid is a huge event, so I wrapped a lot of things I felt about Denny into the song. Being a dad made me feel a little like the pilot in The Little Prince, hence all the references to the Sahara!”

Just as those three early EPs are a crucial part of the Belle and Sebastian canon, these three new releases aren’t merely a detour between albums, but as definitive releases in their own right. ‘How To Solve Our Human Problems’ is both an era of its own, and part of a long, rich history. ‘How To Solve Our Human Problems’ is, if you like, Belle and Sebastian Redux.

When Belle and Sebastian felt new music percolating, they decided to break from the working methods of the recent years and instead stay at home, record the tracks as and when, often producing themselves, working with friends and collaborators to see what emerged. Working in Glasgow gave them the freedom to work without the constraints that making an album can impose: they could take their time honing and experimenting.

One thing that has defined Belle and Sebastian has been their relationship with fans, and that’s apparent in the new EPs. For the three sleeves, the group issued a call to fans to come to be photographed by Murdoch at a studio in Belsize Park in North London. Fifty were selected, and all those photographed were also recorded answering the question: “How do you solve your human problems?”

The 3×12″ boxset is available with two different purchase options. You can buy the set as a subscription which will ship an EP to your door each month, starting with the first EP on December 8th, the second EP on January 19th and the third EP and box + poster on Febraury 16th.

OR you can buy the 3×12″ boxset as a complete set, which will ship to arrive on February 16th, 2018.
Alternatively, you may purchase a CD compilation of the 3 EPs, which will also ship to arrive on February 16th, 2018.

The 3 EPs are also available individually, without the boxset and poster, on each of the dates listed above. You can buy EP 1 HERE, EP 2 HERE and EP 3 HERE.

Joshua Homme & Dean Fertita of Queens of The Stone Age perform on ‘Later… with Jools Holland’

Last night saw Josh Homme & Dean Fertita strip back the stage set-up and unplug the pedalboard for a scintilating version of the album closer ‘Villains of Circumstance’ on BBC Two’s Later… with Jools Holland.

The pair were joined by a string sextet who added sweeps of emotion to an already sentimentally charged track. Dean providing the key accompaniment to Josh’s unmatched crooning.

You will be able to see the second part of the ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ show this Saturday at 22:30 BST

Queens of The Stone Age recommence their US tour this week, and will be touring in Europe come November.

VIDEO: Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile + “Continental Breakfast” + Amoeba Hollywood In-Store Announced

This morning, we’re happy to share the next take from the upcoming album from Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile, Lotta Sea Lice. The video for “Continental Breakfast” was directed by Danny Cohen (@DannyZCohen), who was also behind the lens for the “Over Everything” video released last month. This new video also spans a great distance (does not get much further than Melbourne and Philly. It’s a really special video and we don’t throw that world around too much. Watch and you’ll see why.

Director Danny Cohen says:
‘Continental Breakfast’ was made while spending time with Courtney and Kurt in Melbourne and Philadelphia, it’s an intimate home movie into their lives and the time spent with family and friends between recording /touring. Shot on 16mm, the mini-documentary captures honest moments that show the loving and playful nature of both Courtney and Kurt. It was such a treat to experience life with Courtney and Kurt in their natural habitats. It really left me feeling like part of the family and hopefully fans can feel that too.

VIDEO: Perfume Genius – “Wreath” + Tour Dates

Today Perfume Genius released a video for No Shape track “Wreath”. The video features footage from a contest asking fans to submit themselves dancing to the song. The winning entry, from Esperanza Kroger—dancing freely in
the streets of Cholula, Mexico—can be seen here. After teasing other great entries from throughout the week, the video is finally here.

Mike has said the song is partly about feeling betrayed by his physical body and wanting to be freed from it. The album title is taken from the lyrics — “I wanna hover with no shape…I wanna peel off every weight” — and his goal with the contest and video was to encourage the same sense of ecstatic freedom and abandon that he felt in the studio.

Check out the other videos from No Shape: “Slip Away” and “Die 4 U”.

Perfume Genius will be on the road throughout this Fall, opening for The xx for several dates and headlining a tour of his own.

Snail Mail Signs To Matador, Watch Tiny Desk Session


(photo by Bryan Regan)

Brooklyn-via-Baltimore singer /songwriter/guitar prodigy Lindsey Jordan aka Snail Mail is the latest addition to the Matador Records roster.  Snail Mail will release a full-length album in 2018, following Sister Polygon’s 2017 12″ reissue of the of the introductory cassette, ‘Habit’.  Snail Mail’s NPR Tiny Desk concert premiered this morning, and might provide a hint or several why press, musical peers (including but not limited to Waxahatchee, Priests and Girlpool), and yeah, record labels have taken so much interest in a short spell..

(prior praise for ‘Habit’)

“There’s no grandstanding here, no attempts at hiding how truly confusing it is to be young and feel like the world is simultaneously infinite and hopeless. Perhaps that is why Snail Mail sound so alive despite much tangible optimism: there’s no person behind a curtain, the ugly resides in reality.” – Quinn Moreland, Pitchfork

“Jordan has a voice that only comes along every now and then … she is able to fit a universe of emotion into a single turn of phrase without any vocal affectation … whether she’s muttering or shouting, you feel the heartbreak, the frustration, the joy that came with writing these lyrics” -Stereogum

 
a minimalist swirl of drowsy tempos, unassumingly meticulous guitar parts, and the sort of entry-level existentialism that’s too pure to be pretentious.”  – Patrick D. McDermott, The Fader
