Listen: Woods’ new song “Tomorrow’s Only Yesterday”


Consequence of Sound

Next month, Brooklyn’s Woods will follow up their newly-released eighth album, With Light And With Love, by releasing a new 7-inch featuring two non-album tracks. Already we’ve heard the summery A-side “Tambourine Light”, and today the trio has unveiled its flip side, “Tomorrow’s Only Yesterday”.

Whereas much ofWith Love felt polished, “Tomorrow’s Only Yesterday” feels slightly grittier and unkempt. Psychedelic guitars moan and drone into the ether; waves of crunchy dissonance weave in and out; and even Jeremy Earl’s vocals, cloaked in studio fuzz, feel more like an extension of the jangly noise than a real voice.

Listen in below (via The FADER):

“Tambourine Light” b/w “Tomorrow’s Only Yesterday” is due out July 8th release via Woods’ label Woodsist and Captured Tracks.

The band will be on tour throughout the summer, including stops at the Pickathon and Outside Lands festivals. Consult their full schedule here.

Album Review: Lone – Reality Testing


Consequence of Sound

There are titles on Reality Testing, like “Begin to Begin” and “First Born Seconds”, that give a pretty clear idea of the kind of experience Matt Cutler’s latest album as Lone offers. While the British producer’s 2012 LP Galaxy Garden soared on soft fronds through maximalist spaces, Cutler here incorporates some hip-hop focus in an attempt to blur the lines between our experienced reality and the brightly blurred ethereal. And while Reality Testing reaches out even further into superhuman space, the attempt feels weighed down at times by a zealous attachment to very human rhythms. Cutler seems to test out these new wrinkles to his sound, and this is just the beginning of that progression. He doesn’t quite find the stride into outer space he’s striving for.

Opener “First Born Seconds” cracks open the skull almost too literally, the high-pitched whirring that fuels the transition evoking a dentist’s drill as much as it does inter-dimensional travel. But that willingness…

Consequence of Sound

Filter Magazine, one of the last remaining bastions of the music magazine industry, will cease publication later this summer, according to Kevin Bronson of Buzzbands.LA.

The magazine’s two founders, Alan Sartirana and Alan Miller, have each launched new entertainment platforms. Sartirana’s Anthemic Magazine will begin publiciation in the fall, promising to span the “cultural landscape of music, television, film, art, travel, and everything in between.”

Miller, meanwhile, will operate his own publication and several live events under the name Culture Collide. The Culture Colide festival, which has taken place in Los Angeles over the last several years, will soon expand to San Francisco and New York.

Watch supercuts of Nine Inch Nails’ performing “Gave Up and “Hurt” over last 20 years


Consequence of Sound

In their world tour supporting Hesitation Marks, Trent Reznor has assembled three different configurations of Nine Inch Nails. “This keeps things fresh from a musician’s perspective, but also keeps things interesting for fans in an era where every show ends up on YouTube,” he recently explained.

But this is by new means a new trend; Reznor has been reinventing NIN throughout the band’s entire two-decade career. For proof, look no further than these two supercuts, which compile the band’s performances of “Gave Up” and “Hurt” from 1994 to 2014 (via Antiquiet). As you’ll see, no one rendition is the same.

Ty Segall Band – Wave Goodbye


Music Jupiter of the Skull Statement

Cannot stop listening to this song!!!

Ty Segall Band – Slaughterhouse

Wave Goodbye

I went to church and I went to school
I played by all of your mother’s rules
But now it’s time to drink the wine
And wave goodbye, bye bye!

So lay us out side by side
Once and for all we shall not hide
But now its time to taste the guilt
And wave goodbye, bye bye!
ohh…

A sit down and personal check in with the few readers who on many many days saved my life, you deserve this….


Okay, I need to write about some shit in my life. People throwing huge temper tantrums over my, for a few of them are total babes. Which just makes it suck even more.  I want it te fuck out of my mind. This is what does it. This is as opinionated as it gets on here, by me, what follows. Because of my…. I pay 100 bucks a year to  and I may get myself into some trouble disclosing this. But its that right there, However, bluntly, I dont really give a flying fuck. I’m speaking up. So sue me, dinguses. No story. No surrealist lingual collages on a digi canvass. I’m tired, I want to get this shit out….. I have learned something very important about people that I have met at rock clubs, the 3 bands that I have written, practiced, recorded, quit, literally, not even an hour of leaving one group, I for example, get a phone call from my great friend, and born musician, Tyler Hardy. I’m a bona fide  fucking bassist, I have studied bass for 20 years. I’ve made myself untouchable, and goddamn it feels good. That and writing. Poetry. Which is music. Yadayadada, point I will school your ass.  I purposefully wrote my bass lines in the band Microtia, while writing the 6 songs for the  with the intent that, had another bass player come a long, they nor the other 4 members of the band over the last year, to this day. The 28th. Last year on this day, I moved into a studio that is smaller than my practice space in the worst neighborhood in Portland, The Pearl District. Why did I move myself directly into the big fake urban tits of my hometown? Not one person in the pearl is from Portland. And there are so many extremely hot women that a southeast stoner musician with no money or doesnt own a club (cough) of My current drummer, Tyler, and I pay 100 dollars each for the space, we get a set of keys, its another Northwest Rehearsal Space, Saburbia, Bongo Fury type of place. These are big buildings throughout Portland and the saburbs built with many rooms for bands   And its great because I have made some great friends already including lead singer of the Insignificunts, James. My very good friend Matt, who was the singer of a band called Pheasant up until last year, his new band is right across the way, I’m almost positive is….. you know what, I am tired. I am moving back into my central southeast neighborhood, in a few hours. This year has been very dark. Hospitalized 4 times. Living in a neighborhood that god forbid you politely attempt to converse with a woman, well, then, you’re just a huge fucking creep. A year of that killed me. My confidence has vanished, which makes it written all over my face. How nice it feels to be smiled at by a beautiful girl, with awesome tattoos, and wants to come try out for your band? I think to myself, or not even think. I’m going to tell a story, I cant believe it, about things that will help you think and trust yourself. That said, it is also a story of, dude I dont know, life, society and what flies and what doesnt but some major shit……. one thing, another, a woman, My music-super-groovy friends Bass Shake Her Presley, have 2 brand new recorded tracks up on http://soundcloud.com/brian-hardie. Plus a track from the Microtia EP – Distance Is Oval released on SLC punk label Exigent Records in 2007. I was really proud to be creating a new style almost. And it has stood the test of time,.
