Cigarettes After Sex are playing Barclays Center this Friday 10/26, opening for Nick Cave.

"The airy melody of the love song is soft yet strong, stringing together the messages of pain and memories of past relationships. With each lyric, the soft-spoken music group brings you back to that first moment of falling in love and the aftermath that follows behind it."
- Billboard

"Tender like your lover's hand wrapped around your ankle as he naps next to you on the couch; sad like that last fuck when you both know it's over; smutty because the private language between two is a code that keeps outsiders in the dark."
- Noisey

"Cigarettes After Sex's ambient single "K." feels almost like a slowed down and smeared '80s synth-pop cut."
- NPR (Listeners’ Pick for Favorite New Artists of 2017)

"Melancholic, androgynous pop noir set in smoke-filled darkness"
-Rolling Stone

"Cigarettes After Sex are the calm we all need right now...a sonic swirl of dopamine and serotonin posing as a four-piece band." 
-Paste Magazine

"'K.' is a bleary, understated guitar reverie that (gently) impacts like a liquid mix of the Clientele and Red House Painters." 
-Stereogum

"Hypnotic Brooklyn based Cigarettes After Sex are moody as anything. Attend this show with your festival crush and the smooches will happen almost instantly."

LITTLE DRAGON Share New "Lover Chanting" Video

LITTLE DRAGON
REVEAL VIDEO FOR “LOVER CHANTING”
WATCH HERE

TAKEN FROM FORTHCOMING ‘LOVER CHANTING’ EP
OUT NOVEMBER 9TH VIA NINJA TUNE
“Lover Chanting” Video Screenshot

Today sees Little Dragon reveal the video for their incredible, dance-tastic new single “Lover Chanting.” Directed by Jack Whiteley (Young Fathers, Spring King) and Joe Wills, the fantastically idiosyncratic visuals were shot at Allington Castle in Kent, England, and feature the band in a disco-themed RPG alongside a host of suitably off-the-wall cosplay characters. Click HERE to watch it.  

The single is taken from their brand new 3-track EP of the same name, which was self-produced by the band in their Gothenburg studio. The Lover Chanting EP is set for release digitally on November 9th, with a special 12” black vinyl release scheduled for November 16th, both via Ninja Tune.

Wanting to play on the song’s strong disco roots, director Jack notes, “We felt there were some strong parallels to draw between the late-70s disco scene and the world of online role play gaming. Two worlds worshipped for freedom of expression, pure escapism and the ability to redesign yourself in any way you want. This is our attempt at creating a hybrid between those two worlds – a surreal online gaming environment and a heated 70s disco dance-off!”

Meanwhile, in typical abstract fashion, Little Dragon divulge the following from the shoot... “Just an ordinary day in Bodin’s castle! Big hugs to director team Jack and Joe and of course all the party people! It was the most splendid day that Kent had seen in years. Sun shining over the rose garden with avatars lined up ready to lose their minds. Come full moon the disco was on. No turning back this time. Unless you level up!”

The new video comes hot on the heels of news of new material from the Gothenburg-based band. Showcasing the forward-facing, pioneering spirit that has cemented Little Dragon’s status as one of the most universally adored outfits working today, the single was a welcome return back from the band and was instantly supported by the likes ofPitchfork, The FADER, BBC Radio One’s Annie Mac, and more.

Lost Under Heaven Share New Song "Post Millennial Tension"; US Tour Begins Saturday



SHARES NEW SINGLE “POST MILLENNIAL TENSION”

NEW ALBUM LOVE HATES WHAT YOU BECOME
OUT JANUARY 18

US TOUR DATES BEGIN SATURDAY IN LOS ANGELES
Photo: Ebony Hoorn
Lost Under Heaven are proud to reveal their latest single “Post Millennial Tension,” the fourth track to be taken from new album Love Hates What You Become, due for release on January 18. The Manchester-based audio/visual duo comprised of Dutch artist Ebony Hoorn and British vocalist Ellery James Roberts will embark on a US tour beginning Saturday in Los Angeles before heading to San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and New York City. Listen to “Post Millennial Tension” here.

A sprawling ballad that continually evolves from sparse piano to full blown orchestration, “Post Millennial Tension” takes inspiration for its title from Pre-Millennium Tension, the 1996 LP from Tricky - an artist the band notes as a primary influence. “The song was written on the frustrations of our times – particularly those of the younger generation,” Ellery explains. “Through the Internet people have gained an awareness of possibility but remain entrapped in the limitations of old. In my understanding, solutions to the world’s problems seem plentiful, yet we remain restrained by the systemic inability to act & held down by those mind made manacles - thus the lyric:  “we couldn’t work it out/ we’d sooner live in doubt.” 

“Post-Millennial Tension” premiered on Vevue, a decentralised blockchain video platform. Alongside the video was a hyperlinked lyric treatment requesting fans to shoot footage as a response to the song, from which the duo shall assemble an edit, creating a collective work. Writing on Medium, Robert’s describes “Post Millennial Tension” as a song responding to the Hydra-headed regression of culture that has come to be personified by Trump, Brexiteers and the numerous other Fascist/Populist movements on the rise since the release of their debut LP, Spiritual Songs For Lover to Sing, in 2016. Read the band’s post here.

Love Hates What You Become is released January 18. Pre-order the album here and listen to previously released songs “For The Wild,” “Bunny’s Blues” and “The Breath of Light.”

Dennis and Lois Documentary at IFC Center October 30 at 10am

Dennis And Lois, A Film About Rock n Roll’s Legendary Super Fans, To Hold Special NYC Press Screening



A Documentary by Chris Cassidy, Special Screening Confirmed for October 30 at IFC Center


Featuring Happy Mondays, Peter Hook (Joy Division), Andy Rourke (The Smiths), Ramones and more

Watch the Trailer Here

Read about Dennis and Lois via The New York Times


The Dennis and Lois documentary film by director Chris Cassidy will hold a special press screening at on Tuesday, October 30 at 10AM at IFC Center (323 6th Ave. at W 3rd St.). 

There are bands, there are fans, and then there are Dennis and Lois. This is a story of a New York couple who have transcended beyond just being “music fans”, the legends behind the legends. Filmmaker Chris Cassidy has been following Dennis and Lois ever since meeting them at a show in 2010, and now with over 550 hours of footage, is ready to bring the documentary to life. The world premiere of DENNIS AND LOIS has been announced for November 15 at 9:45pm at the SVA Theater as part of theOfficial Selection of DocNYC Film Festival.

More On Dennis And Lois:
DENNIS AND LOIS is a love story about punk rock’s most dedicated couple and their 40-year devotion to the music and the musicians they love. These two road warriors live for the communal and unpredictable experience of a live concert, and the excitement it brings them in the good times and the bad. Their journey began in the mid-70’s at a gritty little club in New York City called CBGB’s where Dennis and Lois befriended an up-and-coming band, the Ramones.  They quickly became part of the Ramones inner circle, selling merchandise and assisting the future punk legends on tours around the world. This experience would change their lives forever. Through the years, Dennis and Lois continue to build friendships and sell merchandise for the bands they admire.  Happy Mondays immortalized them in song and SPIN Magazine published a comic strip celebrating their ‘War Stories from the Road’. Dennis and Lois are considered by many to be rock-n-roll Icons, but as age and illness start to threaten their lifelong tour, they need to rely on the friends they’ve collected along the way and the music that energizes them to keep it going.

Director Chris Cassidy’s Statement:
The subjects I tend to gravitate towards are musicians (or music related people) that have had a an impact on the industry but haven’t had the chance to have their stories told.  So before I knew it, I was out on the road touring with Dennis and Lois. From small dingy clubs in Brooklyn, to big concert halls in England, I documented these two legends doing what they do best, seeing more live music than anyone could ever imagine and giving back to the bands and musicians they love, all the while facing the challenges that come with getting older.
DENNIS AND LOIS is a film for everyone, no matter what age. It’s not just for music lovers, but anyone with a strong passion for doing what they love, no matter how difficult it gets.
“If you think you are too old to rock n roll, then you are.” – Lemmy

About DocNYC Film Festival:
DocNYC is the country’s largest documentary-only film festival.  The annual NYC-based festival has long been an advocate of quality documentary storytelling appearing on the big screen and mass distribution in the year to come.

Capital Punishment (Ben Stiller's high school band) announce new EP on Captured Tracks. Out 11.23

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT ANNOUNCE NEW EP 
THIS IS CAPITAL PUNISHMENT OUT NOVEMBER 23 ON CAPTURED TRACKS
AS PART OF RECORD STORE DAY'S BLACK FRIDAY
NEW MATERIAL FROM BEN STILLER AND HIGH SCHOOL POST PUNK BAND

Photo By: Dave Stekert

Hot on the heels of Captured Tracks' reissue of Capital Punishment's 1982 album Roadkill, thequartet of Kriss Roebling, Ben Stiller, Peter Zusi, and Peter Swann return with This Is Capital Punishment - an EP of new material recorded almost 35 years after the group disbanded.
Recorded at the Garden in Brooklyn, This Is Capital Punishment came about when Captured Tracks boss Mike Sniper asked Roebling for bonus material for the Roadkill reissue. Along with two unreleased tracks that made it on to Roadkill, the original members got back together and did a remake of their track "Confusion." A blistering, motorik take on the original, the new version reimagines "Confusion" as a much louder and sinister track. It was so loved by the label - and the band had so much fun recording it - that they decided to record more new material.
Ben Stiller says, "It was so much fun after 30-plus years to be playing again... and feeling like I actually got a tiny bit better!" 

With Roebling at the helm in New York and the other band members scattered across the globe, the band had to get creative with their recording process. "Nobody recorded simultaneously with anyone else except me," Roebling explains. "First, Ben and I simply jammed at the studio. From the recordings of those jam sessions, we got some amazing material out of Ben which we then picked through and structured along with my guitar parts into proper songs. From there, Peter Zusi came in from London and recorded some wild progressions and aural textures on his old Les Paul. Peter Swann flew in from Arizona to lay down some melodious bass and also contributed synthesizer to 'Hot Love.' Nobody was told exactly what to do for their parts, so each member's contribution had a marked effect on the direction the songs took, and what ultimately they developed into."
With the "Confusion" remake leading off the EP, Capital Punishment burn through four other tracks that all explore the darker edges of rock 'n' roll. From the strangely sultry "Drumming Out Time Inside Me" and "Grey And Illuminate" to the band's favorite "Hot Love," Capital Punishment may not be teenage punks anymore, but they certainly haven't lost their edge. Pressed on translucent blue vinyl, This Is Capital Punishment is limited to 1500 copies worldwide and will be available November 23 as part of Record Store Day's 2018 Black Friday.
