Peter Wolf Crier play Daytrotter, Announce New Mp3, Tour Dates

pfc5025

Peter Wolf Crier embarks on their first ever U.S. tour starting June 7. In anticipation of the summer tour, Jagjaguwar is proud to release “Hard As Nails”, a new mp3 from Peter Wolf Crier’s new album Inter-Be (out May 25 in the U.S., June 7 in the U.K.). As NPR’s Carrie Brownstein describes it “Hard as Nails centers on a simple and forlorn guitar line, the song building in urgency until it’s finally swallowed by its own fervor. Despite the build-up, the final celebration is more haunted than glorious. It’s a tune played in shadows.” And for an added bonus head over to Daytrotter for a brand new session with Peter Wolf Crier. Tour dates after the jump.

DINOSAUR JR. Featured On Daytrotter, Premiere Totally Gnarly Video For “Over It”

DINOSAUR JR. made their Daytrotter debut today in what is quite possibly the best headline ever crafted for the Daytrotter site: Ears Still Bleed In The Nosebleed Section.

J, Lou and Murph dipped back into the Dino catalogue for the session, saving back the gems found on the new longplayer Farm (Released June 23). Of Dinosaur Jr. and Farm, Daytrotter’s Sean Moeller had these kind words to say: “They have honed their paradise settings and the band’s new album “Farm,” is another installation of the paralyzing ability of the group’s sheer magnitude, a devastating display of rumbling and hissing, of blaring and burning. It’s an example of three guys once again finding themselves getting most interested in making a loud and meaningful racket, something that will send the skin wobbling like the most overwhelming shivers. And it’s all that they can bother themselves to care about – this continuing yearning for loud grandiosity, their kind of beauty. Everything else is just scenery passing them by, flitting by like silence and who gives a shit about silence, they’d ask bluntly. And who gives a shit about keeping anything tame?”

Recently, the band premiered the “extreme” video for Farm cut “Over It,” which finds the trio shredding on BMX bikes and skateboards through the streets of American cities included on their Spring tour. Check out the video below:

BON IVER Performs For Daytrotter

BON IVER stopped by the Daytrotter studios in the midst of a hectic touring schedule this spring to demonstrate some alternate versions of “For Emma, Forever Ago.” Justin’s story with the making of this record has been well-documented. What occasionally gets lost is what is happening to these songs with the addition of Mike Noyce and Sean Carey to the band. While it is obvious that they are gifted musicians, it is the trio’s togetherness that has really sprung a new life into the music.

Listen HERE.

Bon Iver is currently on tour in the US with the addition of Mark Paulson of Bowerbirds to the live band. They will go from coast to coast over the course of the next month, playing with Wilco for select dates. Be sure to check them out!

OKKERVIL RIVER’s Daytrotter session up now

OKKERVIL RIVER’s new Daytrotter session is now up here

For their latest session, the band dusts off some chestnuts, beginning with a full-band version of “April Anne”, originally from former the Mamas and the Papas member John Phillips’ out-of-print 1970 solo debut. Sheff’s stark, solo acoustic renderings of a song Carole King wrote for Dusty Springfield (“No Easy Way Down”) and a Jimmy Webb song once recorded by Nina Simone, among others (“Do What You Gotta Do”) put Sheff’s quavering vocals, the emotional centerpiece of 2007′s “The Stage Names”, in a more feminine light. The session closes with a “skiffle version” of the new album’s “You Can’t Hold the Hand of a Rock and Roll Man” backed by the full band, with Sheff comping on acoustic guitar and member Brian Cassidy trading his electric guitar for piano.
