WATCH // Pink Mountaintops Shares “Shakedown” Video Dir. By Simon Chan ft. J. Mascis, Plays FYF Fest This Weekend, EU Dates Start 8/28


A few days in front of their appearance at FYF Fest, Pink Mountaintops have shared a new video for “Shakedown“, off of their latest LP Get Back. Premiering via Stereogum this morning, the video stars Mandy-Lyn Antoniou and dives into a world fueled by headphone sounds, video games and mixed drinks, all the while featuring a cameo by the legendary J. Mascis. ‘Shakedown’ also marks a reunion between Stephen McBean and director Simon Chan, who previously worked together on Black Mountain’s “Hair Song”. For those of you across the pond, be sure to catch the band on their upcoming upcoming European tour. Watch the video above or on Scry Pictures YouTube page here.

ON TOUR // Oneida Announce Summer Tour, Stream New “RPT” Via BrooklynVegan

Brooklyn legend Oneida may be at a venue near you this summer! Starting July 17th at Glasslands in Brooklyn the band will hit ten cities along the East Coast and Midwest. Bringing along the usual merch the band also have limited edition cassettes called The Brah Tapes which include original live and studio material from the last five years and will only be available on this tour.

To preview the tapes, this morning Brooklyn Vegan premiered “RPT”, which you can listen to above.

Here’s what Bobby Matador had to say on the track,
“A total burner. Recorded live at the Ocropolis with an audience, at one of our public in-studio events that inspired the remote Ocropolis performance installations of 2009-2011. Showtime plays the bass. Titled “RPT” at its birth, this tune is usually known within the O as “Kaddenium” or “Kaddenmium,” after the uncatalogued element discovered by renegade scientist David Kadden. The scientific establishment, unable to reach consensus on its precise atomic weight, has at least agreed that this shit is extremely heavy.”

Fantastic reviews have already started to come in:

“Even as she has settled into a successful solo career, Van Etten continues to write incisively about the volatility of love, with no loss of urgency or investment – Van Etten never sounded quite so self-assured musically”

- Pitchfork // 8.2

“Are We There offers an artist in full command of her voice and her instrument, a woman who knows exactly what she wants to offer listeners and who isn’t afraid to accompany the barest streaks of sunlight with thousands of clouds.”

- The A.V. Club // A-

“Are We There functions best as the portrait of an artist coming into her own, while hopefully putting some of her demons to rest.”

- Consequence of Sound // A-
