Drive Like Jehu

Legendary, influential post-hardcore band Drive Like Jehu reunited for their first show in 19 years last night (8/31) in their hometown of San Diego. The free show, which they’re saying was a one-off, happened in Balboa Park and was a chance for them to perform with the outdoor venue’s Spreckels Pipe Organ (played by organist Carol Williams), one of the world’s largest pipe organs and one that’s been used for concerts since 1914. Their 5-song set included four songs from their final album, 1994′s Yank Crime, as well as one from their 1991 self-titled debut. For their closing track, “Luau,” they were joined by Rob Crow of fellow San Diego band Pinback. The show streamed live online last night, and you can now watch videos of the entire show, with the setlist, below.

Though they’re saying that’s the only Drive Like Jehu reunion show (but our fingers are crossed that it won’t be!), the band has members in other bands including Hot Snakes who play Riot Fest Chicago in September, Rocket from the Crypt who play Fun Fun Fun Fest in November, and others.

Videos and setlist below…

What’s going on Labor Day? (Fool’s Gold Day Off, Peter Gutteridge, Mega Bog, MV and EE, Woodsman & more

Danny Brown @ Pitchfork 2014 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
CROCODILES

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…

Danny Brown, A-Trak, French Montana, AraabMUZIK, The Lox, Brenmar, DJ Hoodboi, Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World’s Fair, Nick Catchdubs (w/ B.I.C.), Shash’u, Black Dave, Grandemarshall @ 50 Kent
If you’re looking for some all-day fun to finish off your Labor Day, the annual Fool’s Gold Day Off, happening at outdoor Williamsburg venue 50 Kent this year, should quench that thirst. As usual, it’s a stacked lineup of electronic music and hip hop, headlined by the great Danny Brown (playing for his third year in a row). Also on the bill is veteran NYC trio The LOX (aka Sheek Louch, Styles P and Jadakiss), upcoming Queens crew World’s Fair, hotshot producer AraabMuzik, label co-heads A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs (the latter joined by rap crew B.I.C.) and plenty more.

Peter Gutteridge, Mega Bog, Iji, EZTV @ Palisades
Peter Gutteridge spent time in original line-ups of both The Clean and The Chills before starting noise-rock band Snapper in the early ’90s. In 1989, he put out a solo album, Pure, which was reissued recently by 540 Records and which he’ll be performing in full at the show. Also on the bill: Seattle’s Megabog and IJI, plus local jangle/powerpop band EZTV.

MV and EE @ Baby’s All Right
MV & EE, aka duo Matt Valentine and Erika Elder, have collaborated with J. Mascis and members of Chelsea Light Moving in the past and released new album, Shade Grown, earlier this year. If you dig jammy trips through droning atmospheres and psych-rock guitar noodling, that should be in effect tonight.

Jozef Van Wissem, Woodsman, Ancient Ocean @ Baby’s All Right
If you are coming to see MV and EE, you might consider sticking around for this later set: Woodsman will released their self-titled third album earlier this year via their new home Fire Talk. The band make bold steps into mid fidelity on this one and it suits them well. It’s rhythm-heavy in a Can/Neu! kind of way, still with their dark, droning textures swirling around. Gothy lutenist Jozef Van Wissem headlines.

Christines, VANIISH, Interval, Winkie @ Glasslands
You can finish up your holiday weekend — if you’re not wiped out — with an evening of goth and shoegaze at Glasslands. San Francisco’s VANIISH (members of Wax Idols and Soft Moon) are playing their first of two NYC shows tonight, with glide guitar experts Christines, INTERVAL and Winkie, as well as Weekend’s Shaun Durkan on DJ duty

Smoke Fairies @ Rough Trade
With their name alone, UK folk act Smoke Fairies conjur up images of early ’70s rolling green, wistful dreamy melodies and the like. The band’s new album heads a little more into adult contemporary territory, but their harmonies still beguile.

DJ Marfox, DJ Cortega, DJ Underdog, Kashaka @ Output
Portugal electronic musician DJ Marfox just played Warm Up this past Saturday, but that wasn’t the only chance you’ll get to see him during the day outdoors during this long Labor Day Weekend. He plays Output’s roof this afternoon, 2 PM start.

Blut Aus Nord releasing ‘Memoria Vetusta III’

by Ian Chainey

ban

Blut Aus Nord love their trilogies more than Hollywood. The French black metallers have a new album on the way and it’s adding another chapter to a series started in 1996. Memoria Vetusta III – Saturnian Poetry will be released on October 10 via Debemur Morti Productions.

As you can see in the art above, Memoria Vetusta III should shift Blut Aus Nord away from the Lovecraftian and industrial creepy-crawlies and back to the epic, synthy, and lead-heavy black metal typical of the Memoria Vetusta collection. The previous entry, Memoria Vetusta II: Dialogue with the Stars, was released in 2009. Blut Aus Nord already have two 2014 releases under their belt, the celebratory Debemur MoRTi EP and the Triunity split with P.H.O.B.O.S. In 2011, leader Vindsval talked with Bob Furtado in an interview translated for Invisible Oranges.

The Memoria Vetusta III tracklisting along with streams from the previous Memoria Vetustas appears below.

Drone guitar master Noveller (aka Sarah Lipstate) recently wrapped a tour opening for St. Vincent, during which she kept a video diary. It’s 40 videos and just over an hour and a half long. You can watch the whole thing below.

Sarah will also play a duo set with Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo in the Amphitheater space at Lincoln Center on November 20, along with a screening of Sarah’s filmwork.

All dates are listed, with the video diary from the STV tour, below…
