Things We Love This Week: LUMP, Calpurnia, Arcade Fire, LANZ

Here’s a neat list of things that happened this week that I loved, excluding the new (and frankly ridiculous) look sported by Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys. With each press photo that drops in the inbox, he begins to look more and more like a down-and-out from Coronation Street, about to get banned from the corner shop for raising his voice at an old lady. Goatees are awful. 

I digress.

LUMP – Curse of the Contemporary

LUMP is a brand new project from Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay. The pair discovered their mutual appreciation of each other’s music after meeting at one of Marling’s shows – supporting Neil Young. Lindsay needed a vocalist, Marling was hungry for a new project. And it all worked out pretty well.

The first track shared from ‘LUMP’ the album (due May 11), sees the Lump – a furry, yeti-like creature – in all his hairy beauty, flopping around with some, ahem, interpretive dance. The song is great: the verses’ combination of Marling’s glistening, high pitched vocals with the twang of effects-laden guitars works perfectly, followed by staccato lyrics in the chorus that complement the bassline. Check it out.

The duo are taking LUMP on tour, too, with in-store performances confirmed for London and Bristol’s Rough Trades, and two shows per night at London’s Oslo, Manchester’s Band on the Wall and Hebden Bridge Trades Club. They’re also set for a performance in Cardiff as part of the Festival of Voice. I’ll be at the merch stand, searching for a cuddly toy version of the Lump. How many times can you fit the word LUMP into a paragraph? Lump. Lump!

Calpurnia – Louie

Stranger Things The Band have released their second single!

Not really (although that would be fantastic). I like to think Calpurnia would get as big a following as they have (74k Twitter followers, 16k likes on Facebook) without their singer, Finn Wolfhard, being one of the lead roles of the Netflix TV show, but to be honest, I doubt it. They’re utilising their situation, and I admire that. You go guys.

The best thing about these kids (despite the fact they’re so young and adorable) is that they have an awesome FEMALE guitarist (Ayla Tesler-Mabe) in a male-led band. So refreshing.

Calpurnia’s garage-rock debut EP ‘Scout’ is scheduled for release on June 15.

Arcade Fire Interview on BBC 6 Music

The band totally dupe interviewer Tom Ravenscroft, in between playing their “fifteen thousandth” show in London on the Infinite Content Tour.

Win Butler deliberately ignores the big question asked.

“How do you feel about the reaction to your campaign?”

“I’m sorry I didn’t hear that.”

The band laugh in the background.

“I was just talking about the fake news campaign you did surrounding the release of ‘Everything Now’, were you surprised by the reaction?”

“I think there must be a bad wire or something…”

Aside from the little prank, fans really would like to know what that whole thing was. Butler said in an interview with the Guardian that “people have lost the ability to even know what a joke is.” So we know they were just tricking us the whole time. What? “Part of me hopes that this record is our stinker, our horrible record, because if it is, then we may be the greatest band of all time.” I am worried Win has gone mad with power.

Going back to what they actually do best, the full band played beautiful stripped back renditions of Put Your Money On Me and We Don’t Deserve Love at Maida Vale, which are worth listening to purely for an intricate look at how they layer their songs. It’s so clever and well put together, despite their marketing campaign being the opposite.

LANZ – Hoferlanz II

Ben Lanz is a multi-instrumentalist in all your favourite indie bands. Primarily a trombonist, he tours with the National and Sufjan Stevens. He’s in Beirut, as well as the Devendorf brothers’ krautrock collab LNZNDRF. Everywhere! Today marks the release of ‘Hoferlanz II’, the second album from his solo experimental art-pop-alt-rock project. Wrap your ears around this for some fun – including an 10 minute conquest at the end. Enjoy.

Au revoir, mes amis. But not you, Alex. We need to talk.

Things We Love This Week: Arcade Fire, Breakfast Muff, Sohn

Happy Friday to you, dear reader! If you’ve come for a steaming hot latte and a buttery crumpet, you’ve come to the wrong place. Instead, go and get your snacks, then come back for a nice read about what happened in the music world this week.

Arcade Fire – Money + Love

Let’s face it. ‘Everything Now’ was a bit of a flop. Arcade Fire are playing half-full arenas, and their die-hard fans (hi) are desperately hoping they’ll pull it all back. We’ll grab onto anything at this point. Might their new short film, Money + Love, be the answer?

Probably not. Although this on-the-nose attempt to blame last year’s bizarre ‘Infinite Content’ marketing strategy on money-hungry corporations instead of the band at least gives me some hope that they haven’t gone completely mad with power.

Additionally – doesn’t that 100% marshmallow cereal look delicious? Maybe that whole product placement thing is working…

Breakfast Muff – Crocodile

From cereal, to breakfast, to Breakfast Muff. I had never listened to these Glaswegian pop-rockers until today, but I will from now on. And you should too. Their latest single, Crocodile, hits all the right notes: call-and-response vocals and marching rhythms make for a short, simple and great song. Once you know that mixing duties landed with MJ of Hookworms, it’s easy to see the clarity of his work on the instrumental layering. It’s really well done.

Check out the video, too, which features the band playing around with cardboard sea creatures. Such fun. PLEASE can I join the band?

Sohn – Hue

Now for something a little different.

If you’re not already familiar with Sohn, then you should be. The producer is signed to 4AD – home to some pretty awesome bands like the National, Tune-Yards, the Breeders, Deerhunter, Beirut, et al – and put out two new songs this week. You’ll be hooked by the initial piano melody on Hue, which is alternatively fed through the left and right stereo channels in a see-saw of melancholic echoes. Then there’s this guy’s voice. Reminiscent of maybe Chet Faker/Nick Murphy or a softer Sampha, it has that slightly raspy tone that makes me weak at the knees. *swoons*

He’s off on a European tour soon, including a stop at the Roundhouse in London.

That’s all for this week, folks. See you next week!

Things We Love This Week: Arcade Fire, Teen Creep, MGMT

Oh hi there, it’s me again! Glad to have you back.

Thank heavens January has come to an end. It was dark and dreary and terribly miserable. Hang on a minute, though. Somehow the weather seems to have got even colder, and I’m not at all happy about it. But hey, look at the plus side: it’s not pitch black when I leave work anymore, and there’s definitely a chance of a snow day soon. Let’s celebrate the approach of spring, however far away it feels, with a cup of tea and some merriment. 

Arcade Fire – Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!)

This the most cheerful music around at the moment. Fact. It’s loud, brazen and obnoxiously happy. Be transported to a carnival of song, dance and colour with the foot-tapping, horn-wielding, maraca-shaking song of the week.

Its lyrics translate to “We will dance / We will play / We will pray / We will continue to make the world a better place for all” and this collaboration between Arcade Fire and the Preservation Hall (for Krewe Du Kanaval, which was held on Tuesday) is truly a celebration of the human spirit.

Listen on the Krewe Du Kanaval Website. Obtain dancing shoes with immediate effect.

Teen Creeps – Sidenotes

Teen Creeps are a trio from Belgium, and they’ve just announced their debut album. It’s set to be a blend of ’90s alt rock and hard hitting punk. This week, the band released the record’s first cut, Sidenotes, and an accompanying video. Let’s focus on the video. It is just so fun. He’s not even dancing, really, just flailing around. It’s brilliant.

Teen Creeps described the video as an “entire dance routine that perfectly translates the vibe and energy of the song”  and that’s exactly what it does. I’ll be bringing these moves to a dance floor near you very soon.

MGMT – Me and Michael

While we’re on the subject of bonkers new videos, here’s another that caught the eye of this bonkers lady. 

MGMT’s new album ‘Little Dark Age’ is out today through Columbia, and features the new single Me and Michael, which dropped yesterday. Its video begins with a note stating “An Afghan a day keeps the doctor away” and a drawing of an Afghan hound. Dog lovers will be hooked initially, but ultimately disappointed.

The rest of the video features little to no furry friends. Instead, viewers get squelching raw meat and characters constantly licking their fingers, tied up in the (supposedly fictional) narrative of MGMT stealing the song from a (real) Filipino band called True Faith. They get found out, and their music career ends in tatters. Where do they come up with these things? What happens in their brains? And who the fuck is Michael?

When speaking to BBC 6 Music yesterday, MGMT said of the track: “It’s super meta. We’ve really confused everybody, including ourselves.” I am definitely confused. Maybe that’s the point?

That’s it for Things We Love This Week, dear readers. Over and out.

Staff Picks: Helen Payne

 

GIGS

As I reminisce on the gigs I’ve been to throughout the year, a sudden realisation washes over me after a painful, head-scratching 10 minutes. Disappointingly, I can only count a meagre seven, in addition to two day-long festivals and one weekend festival. That’s a hugely unsatisfactory effort on my part, and I blame this entirely on being forced to spend my final uni days moping around a library, struggling through essays on existentialism and a dissertation on music and mental health (well, should’ve been – I actually spent most of my final year bingeing on Fargo and pretending Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency was “research”). For this reason, alongside the fact that Exeter’s Cavern had been largely destroyed in a fire, I didn’t go to anywhere near as many as I wanted to. The shameful list of shows I actually attended in 2017 goes as follows, in chronological order:

  • Fickle Friends @ Exeter Phoenix (Attended at the suggestion of a friend. Even after several G&Ts, it was distinctly average, with the weirdest support act I have ever laid eyes on.)
  • Bear’s Den @ Exeter Lemon Grove (Amazing.)
  • Redfaces @ Exeter Phoenix (My band were the support act. They’re actually getting pretty big now, and all of them were absolutely lovely. My four friends were the only audience members.)
  • Laura Marling @ Exeter Lemon Grove (Last minute press pass. Beautiful.)
  • Exefest @ Exeter University (Cascada, The Hoosiers, Wheatus… we left promptly after Example started a DJ set.)
  • Poltimore Festival @ Poltimore House (An adorable local grassroots festival that gets bigger and better every year – Matthew and The Atlas headlined.)
  • Isle of Wight Festival (Attended solely for Arcade Fire, who did not disappoint. Also featured the inimitable and fascinating Rod Stewart.)
  • The National @ London Eventim Apollo (Battled with the flu to drive from Cardiff to London and back, almost didn’t make it through. Finished the night with Lemsip and a headache. So rock and roll.)
  • This Is The Kit @ Cardiff Globe (Birthday. Sent from heavenly folky Bristol Gods.)
  • Mutation @ Cardiff Globe (Really fun night with Laura, worst hangover I’ve had for years. I don’t think I fit into the raging metal vibe very well.)

Best Gig

Looking back, the show that sticks with me the most (in a self-aware attempt to shift my attention away from the National) has to be Bear’s Den, as one of the most intimate, special moments I can remember from the year – and probably at any gig I’ve ever been to. The end of their set saw the bespectacled, bearded fellows huddle in the middle of the crowd, playing an entirely unplugged performance of a track from their debut album, ‘Bad Blood’. It would’ve been rude to whisper during such a breathtaking, intimate and profound moment such as this, and I was absolutely blown away.

ALBUMS

Most of my favourite music this year stemmed from getting my first real-life-full-time-actual-adult-job here at Stereoboard, which somehow, miraculously for me, involves spending all day writing about and discovering new bands, while listening to BBC 6 Music in the background all day. In doing so, I’ve stumbled across some amazing things. Here are just some of them.

  • Sampha – ‘Process’
  • Nadine Shah – ‘Holiday Destination’
  • Alex Lahey – ‘Love You Like A Brother’
  • Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile – ‘Lotta Sea Lice’
  • The War on Drugs – ‘A Deeper Understanding’
  • Grizzly Bear – ‘Painted Ruins’

Since being here, I’ve also done a handful of reviews of varying opinions – one astounding, one fine, and one I didn’t like at all.

Best Album

The National – ‘Sleep Well Beast’

The National are one of my favourite bands, and their latest record only skyrocketed this opinion further. It is triumphant, having reached number one status in the UK and received a Grammy nomination, and holds nothing back with a one-two punch of daring guitar solos by the Dessner brothers and Matt Berninger screaming his face off to Turtleneck, then hitting home with that graceful lyricism, gorgeous instrumentation and a style of storytelling that never ceases to amaze me on some of the softer songs. Each record sees the band develop further, honing their craft to perfection, and ‘Sleep Well Beast’ is no different.

OTHER COOL STUFF OF 2017

Campaign I Have Eternally Mixed Feelings About And Need To Voice (But Ultimately Dislike)

Arcade Fire – ‘Everything Now’

‘Everything Now’ is a particularly on the nose, self-aware critical commentary. Everything is monetised, capitalism is bad, massive corporations bring emptiness to everyone’s lives, and the current culture of immediate gratification will be the ruin of us all. Fine. This isn’t groundbreaking territory though – for years people have dissected and critiqued the way we live our lives through screens and massive corporations. So why make the point? And why make it in such an extravagant fashion?

Arcade Fire are not the type of band to create a fictional company to take over their marketing strategy, a fictional social media co-ordinator (who, when it all went to shit, released a fictional statement about taking his fiction too far, and got sacked from his fictional role), ridiculous, diva-esque demands and strict dress codes to their shows. On the flip side, it’s impossible to know whether any of these things hold any truth (#FakeNews), or if everything was calculated to go down as it did. The whole thing is bizarre, and it’s not the same band who wrote ‘Funeral’ or ‘Neon Bible’, which, incidentally, make similar points more eloquently. I’m not convinced the lack of depth on the album can be excused by such an obvious, and frankly embarrassing, conceptual point.

Solo Debut

Mr Jukes – ‘God First’

Having recently re-listened to ‘So Long See you Tomorrow’, the final material from Bombay Bicycle Club before they parted ways on an indefinite hiatus, it’s clear to see the direction Jack Steadman, frontman, was desperate to go in, pulling the band towards sampling, more electronic sounds, and complex rhythms. On his solo (well, not so solo, given the number of collaborations including De La Soul, Horace Andy and Lianne La Havas to name a few) debut ‘God First’, Steadman takes the listener on a journey through modern jazz styles, old school RnB samples and breakbeats to meld genres into one awesome listening quest.

Musicians Doing Cute Non Musician Things

Orlando Weeks – ‘The Gritterman’

After announcing the end of bill-topping indie band The Maccabees (RIP) with huge farewell performances this summer, it is refreshing to see frontman Orlando Weeks injecting some adorable goodness into the world. His latest project, The Gritterman, is a children’s book-come-album-come-live-show about an ice cream man whose big dream is to help his community during the winter months by gritting the roads. Wholesome and heartwarming, perfect to get you in that Christmas spirit.

New Songs I Discovered and Can’t Stop Playing

  • Pip Blom – Babies Are A Lie
  • Hatchie – Sure
  • NARCS – Raus!
  • Allusondrugs – I’m Your Man
  • Weaves – #53
  • Alvvays – Not My Baby
  • This Is The Kit – Hotter Colder
  • Django Django – Tic Tac Toe
  • Manchester Orchestra – The Gold
  • Everything Everything – Night of the Long Knives
  • Esper Scout – Compass
  • Drahla – Form of Luxury

 

All in all, I leave 2017 with a desperate need to see more gigs, a desire to increase my band t shirt collection and with a heavy heart, as this has been an ultimately life changing year for me. What’s next?
