Lord Huron - She Lit A Fire

I will be honest I was a little late on the Lord Huron bandwagon, but after diving into the new Lonesome Dreams album I can't stop listening to the band.  Several friends recommended them and finally I took the time to give the album a solid listen and haven't looked back since.  My favorite track from the album is 'She Lit A Fire' which you can watch below as part of Rolo & Grady Sessions back in August 2011.  But as a whole 'Lonesome Dreams' is one of the few incredible albums that 2012 has blessed us with.

Music Video: HAIM - "Don't Save Me"

Another awesome music video to share with you, this one from L.A. trio: HAIM.

New to the scene with only one 3-song EP under their belt, we look forward to each release from these girls, and cannot wait for more.

HAIM - Don't Save Me


Tanlines Debut Music Video for "Not the Same"

One of my/our favorites, Tanlines, has premiered their new music video for the amazing song "Not The Same" from their stellar album Mixed Emotions

Check it out:

Tanlines - Not The Same

Peace - Wraith

Peace are starting to get some credit for their tunes even outside of Britain.  This newest track 'Wraith' brings to mind a nice heavy mix of something you would hear from The Maccabees or Foals.  Their sound is getting more and more polished as they release new material and this is clearly a band that needs to be on everyones radar.

Recap: JEFF the Brotherhood and Delta Spirit - House Of Blues Chicago Nov. 19

Two heavily heralded live acts came through Chicago on Monday, and FPT was lucky enough to cover JEFF the Brotherhood and Delta Spirit at the House of Blues in Chicago.

There are many adjectives to describe JEFF the Brotherhood's sound, and all of them are probably equally overused. But the band delivers their sound: (pick one) "dark/moody/stoner/garage"-rock with such gusto that it makes the duo hard to ignore.

JEFF the Brotherhood
Based off their live show, it was clear why Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) chose to wet his production chops by co-producing JEFF the Brotherhood's latest effort Mystic Nights. JEFF the Brotherhood produce such a powerful sound for just two members, much like the glory days of Black Keys' sets. Shredding through songs like "Staring at the Wall" "Sixpack" and "Heavy Days" with such force it completely made up for the lead singer's donning of a shirt with his own album cover on it. The set was accurately accompanied by a fog machine that was heavily used; the thick mass of fog clouding the band for 75% of their set.

Through that fog, however, was a band who has mastered their craft. Both members playing on some of the most badass equipment I've seen - a completely clear guitar head and drum kit - and playing them well; Jake Orrall closed the set with his guitar neck between his legs, appearing to have lost his mind at some point while playing. This is a good thing.

After about a half hour wait, Delta Spirit took the stage.

I had long heard from colleagues and friends that Delta Spirit is not to be messed with when it comes to their live shows. To be honest, I never really gave them a decent shot. Their latest, self-titled effort was a little lackluster upon first listen, and I admittedly wrote them off. Since the album was released, however, more and more people were "tricking" me in to listening to them, highlighting their older releases. And sure, yes, fine, whatever, I liked them.

So here I am, at a Delta Spirit concert, waiting to "see the light" as someone emphatically put it.

The group came out to a mass of cheers and screams, and opened their set with "Money Saves" and "Idaho" both off their latest album. It was quickly discovered by me, in the photo pit, that the band would be a headache to cover accurately with a camera.

Delta Spirit
Watching Delta Spirit on stage is like trying to watch the Tasmanian Devil tear apart a room and pinpoint where he is at one point in time. Matt Vasquez is a mad man on stage, and seems to rupture a vocal chord every show. His voice is absolutely reckless in a live setting, and his body seems unable to stop moving, as he is either playing guitar or eliciting shout-along sessions from the crowd as he lifts the mic stand and hovers it over the front row of patrons.

Couple "'Squez"'s insanity on stage with a heavy sound that is backed by two drummers at times, a keyboardist at other times, a guitarist that never ceases to be ripping through some riff that went unnoticed in the album, and a bassist who's hair is a spectacle in itself.

Delta Spirit
And sure, yes, fine, the band puts on an amazing show.

It was the House of Blues that led a little to be desired for such a raucous show. The walls seemed too closed in on themselves, as echoes destroyed my ears and left them ringing for a couple of days. But that doesn't mean I didn't thoroughly enjoy myself. Delta Spirit blew me away with live versions of some excellent songs: "Tear It Up" "Empty House" "White Table" and "Bushwick Blues" all blew me away, and to top it off, "Trashcan" closed out the set and featured Vasquez shifting to the keys and drummer/keyboardist Kelly Winrich brought out a beat-to-shit metal trashcan lid to bang on.



By the time Delta Spirit finished up their encore with "California" I had already come to the conclusion that these two bands are on my must-see list from here on out.

WU LYF - T R I U M P H


As a music fan and first listening to WU LYF, I was excited to hear a new band with a new sound and was anxiously waiting to see how they could follow up to their astonishing debut (Only) album Go Tell Fire To The Mountain.  There are a lot of things in the world to be thankful for over this long weekend but the news on the band calling it quits was not one of them.  Here is what the band had to say about calling it quits....

“By the time I wrote this I was all ready gone. You know you aint got nothing but time, but time isn’t an infinite currency I want to see wasted. If this is our last month living, apocalypse looming, I am not going to spend my final hours waiting in purgatory. I am done. There is nothing here that inspires/ interests me beyond the emptiness for dreams. and I don’t want to spend my life asleep; dreaming of a….
“Wake up! We stay safe/ everything is golden/ in this place.
“WU LYF is dead to me. The sincerity of “Go tell fire” was lost in the bull shit of maintaining face in the world we live. Clap your hands chimp everybody’s watching. A year spent losing faith; Innocence lost wide eyes see clear the dark. There’s blood running down streets of every city in the world, what’s a song to do, pretend it mean everything/nothing to you. Another distraction from the world we live. I and I struggle for a based positivity; Get free or die trying; J C Hung him self up for the easy way out. so Broken Mama Cita be kind to me.”
"P E O are P L E the world over. Your beautiful and strange, and I love you. But The Great Longings calling and I'm young and free enough to try and answer."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I am gone. This isn't the end. This is the begging.
We done business to be as free as we want to be; I'm exercising this freedom. Manchester and the life we maintaining is leaving me empty. It is a beautiful/ incredible/ insane world we live and I'm done walking round in baby step circles in a self involved bubble. WU LYF isn't that important. So go do what you want to do. If you wanna play together, Play! your talented musicians so don't waste that. I am bored of the most challenging thing in WU LYF being deluding myself of its relevance. Dirty free, as that show ended it concreted my decision that a change has to come. "Be the change you want to see" said a wise old man.
I'm going to keep on doing what I do; if the time comes in the future where we all truly want to collaborate on something then that door is always going to be open; I have nothing but love for you all.
But I want to live life that's true to me."

The band did leave one last tune for us to enjoy titled 'TRIUMPH'

Other Lives Turner Hall Ballroom Live Review

Saturday the 17th at Turner Hall Ballroom, Other Lives caught me off guard in the sense that it was an unforgettable performance. I had a similar experience in Salt Lake City while checking out City and Colour and I feel like a broken record for saying this, but the best shows always seem to be the ones you attend with little to no expectations! These are the shows you walk away with more than you walked in with.

I was tardy to the venue, but fortunate enough to catch Copenhagen's "Indians," the alter ego of Søren Løkke Juul. The overall sound was rather pleasant as his soothing voice was accompanied by both keys and acoustic guitar. In all honesty, it was probably one of the more enjoyable openers that I have seen in recent months and I'm fairly certain it won't be long before Indians make their way back as the main act.

Following Indians, Other lives were accompanied by an interesting arrangement of light bulbs that flickered throughout the show, which was fitting. You will have to forgive me, as I said earlier I went into this show with little expectation so I am a little rusty on a few of the tracks. The band started off with the what I believed to be "Dark Horse" the first track off their most recent (and well praised) album Tamer Animals.  Soon after, the band dove into "As I Lay My Head Down," also from Tamer Animals. From the start it was apparent we were dealing with a well rounded group of multi-instrumentalists as lead singer Jesse Tabish switched between both piano and acoustic guitar. Cellist Jenny Hsu joined him to the left often playing violin. Drummer Colby Owens was also joined in the back by Josh Onstott (bass and percussion) and Jon Mooney (guitar, piano, horns) to the right. With such a wide variety of instruments it re-emphasized the craftsmanship of the carefully constructed folk songs.

Other Lives seemed somewhat surprised anyone showed up as the humble group often thanked the audience saying, "it's our first time in Milwaukee, thank you so much, glad to see everyone." Soon after, Tabish lead the group into "For 12" and then "Tamer Animals." They even treated us to "Dead Can" off their new EP Mind the Gap, which is a bit heavier and darker than previously released material. "Dust Bowl III" is another standout track played close to the end of the set.

For the encore Tabish took the stage solo, playing piano to "Black Tables" from their self titled debut album, Other Lives. Again he thanked the audience saying "thank you for the warm welcome" and "we didn't expect this." Also asking what kind of beer to check out, with suggestions coming from every direction, he replied jokingly, "I'll just drink 15 different beers and get piss drunk" and then went on to finish the set.

As stated above, I went into this show expecting nothing and I walked away with a feeling that I can't quite put my finger on, but it's one I get from few shows. Gaining a strong sense of what Other Lives is  capable of, especially live, I wouldn't expect them to be going anywhere soon. From the atmosphere to the sound, the overall show was perfect and I would encourage you to see them live and at the very least listen to Tamer Animals and/or Mind the Gap EP.

Japandroids - LIVE REVIEW 11/17/2012 - SLC, UT


I have already stated several times over the year that I believed Japandroids to not only be the band of the year, but also the band that has the album (Celebration Rock), and song (The House That Heaven Built) of the year.  Well after seeing the Canadian duo of Brian King and David Prowse perform at Urban Lounge in Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday night I think it is also safe to add the title of Live Act of the year.  The energy and raw emotion that they put into their live set is incredible, and you can tell that playing their music is what drives them to keep going.  There was never a dry moment in their set, and they came to play for the SLC (Johnny Utah) crowd and vowed to leave nothing on the table by the nights end. 

They dove into their entire music catalog with a solid mix of old and new tunes.  They played each song as if it was their last of the night and really never let up and gave the fans a full 90+ minutes of pure Canadian Garage-Rock (Or whatever you want to call it).  Brian would often go off in between songs in a light mannered way just chit chatting about their music, the fans, Canada, Salt Lake City, or any other random topic but once it was time to play the next song it was all business and it seemed as though each song started with a bang.   It was such a nice treat to see a band play so wreckless and loud and fast as Japandroids - It basically put all those indie bands I have been hearing over the past 2-3 years to shame. 

Some of the individual song highlights for me were 'The Boys Are Leaving Town', 'Wet Hair' and 'Rockers East Vancouver' from their 2009 effort Post-Nothing.  'Darkness on the Edge of Gastown' was also great to hear live which is the opening track from their sophomore album No Singles.  Then came the songs from Celebration Rock and as an album I have been listening to on repeat over the past few months I was thrilled.  Of couse they played 'The House That Heaven Built' to a thunderous crowd and others like 'Fire's Highway' and 'The Nights of Wine and Roses' were well received.  The highlight of the whole set for me was my favourite Japandroids song in 'Continuous Thunder'.  It is probably the slowest, calmest song from their entire catalog and when they played it they finally got to catch their breathe for a few minutes. 

It was an all around great night of music and one that will be ringing in my ears for some time.  So a specail thank you to Brain and David from all your fans here in Johnny Utah!

CONCERT PREVIEW - Delta Spirit with JEFF the Brotherhood at Chicago's House of Blues November 19th

Delta Spirit
Another fantastic show rolls through Chicago this Monday, November 19th as Fidlar and JEFF the Brotherhood opens for Delta Spirit. Tickets are still available here.

JEFF the Brotherhood
JEFF the Brotherhood are out on tour pressing the release of their latest album Hypnotic Nights which was put out via Warner Brothers Records this past July. The duo, consisting of two brothers from Nashville, TN, enlisted Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys to help produce the album. JEFF the Brotherhood member Jamin stated was the first time the group used an outside producer to assist with an album; obviously not a bad guy to bring in for the first crack at an outside influence on an album.

The band's gritty, stoned-garage-rock sound is sure to translate genuinely to a live setting; check out the group's heavy and enjoyable performance from Conan this past week... or as heavy as anything with a flute-solo could be. CoCo even gives a little bump to the show this Monday at House of Blues - Chicago before the performance as well.

California-based Delta Spirit have seemed on the rise to absolute stardom for quite a while now, and I shamefully have not listened to the hype until just recently, thanks to a staffer here at FPT. He is ultimately jealous as Delta Spirit has become one of his favorite (as well as many close friends') live performances to catch. Sorry Nick, enjoy Milwaukee Monday night.

The group is out on tour with a third studio album under their belt (Delta Spirit) which was released in March of 2012. The album features enough familiarity to offer long-time fans new tracks to get excited about, while maintaining the soulful and congregational sound that will draw in new listeners. Nevertheless, the band is known for their powerful live performances.

Check out my favorite track off the new album (and one of my favorites of the last year), "Tear It Up" being performed live at Austin City Limits in October.

Album Review - Melody's Echo Chamber

Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Melody Prochet, or more commonly known as Melody's Echo Chamber released her debut album of the same name on September 25th. The album was recorded and mixed with Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) in Perth at her grandparents house in France.

The debut album Melody's Echo Chamber took the music world by surprise, being quite an impressive and unique album by means of being easily labeled a "pop" album; but not exactly. The first track "I Follow You" immediately hooks you with a simple guitar riff, and is soon followed by Melody's beautifully smokey vocals. The song eventually ends with a grainy guitar solo, which brings you to the second track, "Crystallized" another standout similar to the first.

The album takes you for a ride, from a more straight, pop-driven sound to (for lack of a better term) dream-pop at times. By the third song, "You Won't Be Missing That Part Of Me" the album becomes more layered, introducing a rougher sound with a wide variety of instruments and more synth. "You Won't Be Missing That Part Of Me" is the turning point where the album becomes more psychedelic with just the right amount of darkness, while maintaining it's core sound and dreamy vocals. The only downfall of the album is that its easy to get lost in, as some of the tracks blend together too well. But, that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

In the end Melody's Echo Chamber is a solid debut album from front to back bringing an interesting and unique pysch-pop sound, coupled with her pleasant smokey voice when it is added into the mix. Without over doing it, the album has just the right amount of effects, which add a nice touch the the songs to give the album more depth. Keep your eye out for Melody's Echo Chamber in the future, and check out a couple of tracks below.





Phantogram "Don't Move" Video

Phantogram quickly hit the scene in 2010 with the critically acclaimed Eyelid Movies. The following year they released Nightlife, which can we described as a mini followup LP. They recently premiered the video for "Don't Move" on Pitchfork, which can also be seen below.


Nada Surf Premiere "Jules and Jim" Music Video

"Jules and Jim," the third single from Nada Surf's most recent The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy was recently released. Directed, animated and edited by Rachel Chaiya Blumberg, The video has been said to "bring you into the dreamlike world of three characters who are both intertwined and isolated and into three different worlds which are also intertwined and yet isolated."

Nada Surf is also on tour and will be stopping in Milwaukee at Turner Hall Ballroom on December 7th, be sure to check this one out.

 

Read FPT's review of The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy HERE.

Ninetails - Maybe We

When I first heard the Ninetails tune 'Maybe We', my initial reaction was WOW this is one moody guitar jam. The track comes from the bands new Slept and Did Not Sleep EP that you can stream over at the 405.  The song itself is a momentum builder and one that may need a couple of listens to fully appreciate its texture.  The lyrics themselves don't hit until the 3 minute mark and even then they only last for maybe 30 seconds. 

Look for the EP to be released November 26th as a pay what you want download via Superstar Destroyer Records.

Purity Ring - Lofticries VIDEO

The Halifax/Montreal duo known as Purity Ring have turned a few heads with their debut album Shrines. Take a listen to their newest single 'Loficries' from the album and see its accompanied video. The video was directed by AG Rojas, and tells a story or a feverish dream, one of which shows the ideas of conception, birth, sickness and death.

Father John Misty & La Sera: Lincoln Hall - Chicago - October 30 LIVE REVIEW


In the city of Chicago, if you're going to see a live concert, the experience is going to be based heavily on the venue of said entertainment. The venues can go from just plain off-putting (i.e. The Congress and their intense security presence and horrible sound) to incredibly enjoyable (for example, The Metro on the city's north side). Lincoln Hall in the heart of the Lincoln Park area of the city, has quickly grown to be my favorite venue in the city, if not the entire Midwest region. The sound is great, the drinks and food are reasonably priced, and the layout of the venue is perfect, with a wrap-around balcony that leaves no bad spot to watch/listen in the house.

Jeffertitti's Nile
On the day before Halloween this year, Lincoln Hall welcomed Father John Misty and La Sera (with special guest Jeffertitti's Nile) for a sold out show. Being that it was Halloween eve, there were a few people dressed up in attire, but this wasn't going to be a costume ball (go to the Congress for that).

The opening act, Jeffertitti's Nile was spectacular; their attire just as varied as their sound. The act proved to be another suitor in the ever-expanding independent alternative music scene, and featured Father John Misty frontman, Josh Tillman, on drums. His previous experience drumming with Fleet Foxes proved to be useful, although this music was a little more demanding of a capable drummer.


La Sera
La Sera graced the stage next, as more and more people began to filter in to the main area of the venue. Her sound was filled with much more excitement and enthusiasm than is left to be heard on her sophomore album Sees The Light. Even the slower tracks featured a more electric sound to them, resonating more of a Pop Punk vibe than I expected to hear. La Sera was fun and bright, playing along with friendly banter from the crowd, and acknowledging the stereotypical "I Love You" shouts from a few of the crowd's male patrons. I was especially pleased with her performance of "Real Boy", "Break My Heart" and "Drive On" - three of my favorite tracks off the newest album. I was reminded of a Smith Westerns meets Rilo Kiley style of stage presence and performance, with front-woman Katy Goodman sipping on (what I believe was) whiskey and smiling gracefully in between songs.

Up next, after a short set break, was Father John Misty, which featured multiple members of the first group, Jeffertitti's Nile as contributing members behind Josh Tillman.

To be honest, it's hard to believe Josh Tillman wasn't a front man from birth, and it's reasonably easy to see why he took the opportunity to head his own group. His charisma and comedic banter between songs killed me, and his hip movements and stage presence would make Jim Morrison blush and got many members of the audience swooning where they stood.

The humorous thing about Tillman is his affection for being inebriated  Videos have surfaced online featuring Tillman either drinking whisky, smoking marijuana, or even singing karaoke whilst on acid (a rousing version of "I Believe I Can Fly" can be found on YouTube). But with this notion can often come nervousness for a member of the audience. Bands (or members of them) can become so distractingly fucked up on stage that it can really ruin a show - Smith Westerns and Alkaline Trio come to mind as the biggest culprits.

Father John Misty

But with Tillman (and fellow members), his inebriation was never a distraction. In fact, if anything it helped him let loose on some songs. At one point, Tillman walked around stage spouting hilarious quips with his band members, then realized it and said "I got too high backstage and now I'm aimlessly talking to the band..." which drew a large amount of cheers and laughs. The star of the show was undoubtedly Tillman; his falsetto in "Nancy From Now On" and "Fun Times In Babylon" gave me goosebumps and "Hollywood Cemetery Forever Sings" played more like a jarring rock song than it allows to be heard on headphones. The band closed out with a medley of covers including "Nevertheless, I'm In Love With You" (Dean Martin) and an awesome rendition of Canned Heat's "On The Road Again" into "Green Onions" by Booker T & The MGs.

Below you will find some photographs I snatched while covering the show. You can see the full album over at our Facebook page!

Them Swoops - Work Around It


Them Swoops are a band out of Australia that bring a very refreshing pop sound to the start of a cold winter here in America. Their debut single 'Work Around It' is taken from the bands forthcoming EP which is due for release in early 2013. Them Swoops, you better start remembering the name, as the world can always use some more catchy Australian songs.

The 1975 - Woman

The 1975 are a band out of Manchester and are set to have a couple of EP's to their name. The first EP was released earlier this year and is titled the Facedown EP, the second is called the Sex EP and is set for a November 20th release date via Vagrant Records.

Take a listen to the track 'Woman', which is taken from the Facedown EP.  It really is one of the better slowburner tracks that I have heard all year.  Also get a taste of the new Sex EP with the track 'You' below, as it carries on in the same light as what the band have offered on their debut EP.

This is a band that has caught my attention early on, and I will be listening going forward.



Shields - Pharaohs (SBTRKT cover)

Most times you see or hear a band perform a cover song and it is pretty direct and to the point. This is not the case with Shields as they took SBTRKT's 'Pharaohs' and created a truly unique version of the song. The video shows off the band performing in their own makeshift masks in homage to SBTRKT.

Look for the cover song to be featured on Shields upcoming EP Kaleidoscope, on November 19th.

Watch Father John Misty Perform on Conan

Foals - Inhaler

Foals have just premiered their first track from their forthcoming 'Holy Fire' album over at NME.  The new track 'Inhaler' proves that the Foals have grown up and are continuing to push their music forward. 

The video was directed by Dave Ma, and lead singer has this to say about it... 
"It's a lot to do with rhythm and basic movement. Dave took a lot of influence from Japanese Butoh dancing and there is an almost sinister air to it. It's a very homegrown video; we went to a special place that Dave converted."

Mumford & Sons - Lover Of The Light VIDEO

The new single 'Lover Of The Light' from Mumford & Sons has a brand new video. The song is taken from the sophomore album Babel, which is available now. The video was directed by Idris Elba and Dan Cadan.
