On November 5th, Bob Mould will be kicking off his last run of tour dates on what has been a rip-roaring series of shows in support of his album Patch The Sky (Merge). From headline sets at packed clubs to a recent main stage set before tens of thousands at Riot Fest Chicago, critical and popular response to Bob’s recent live shows has consistently matched the energy and vitality put forth on each and every performance:

“The guitarist spun his bearish frame on one foot, as if being knocked around by the hurricane force of his solos. The notes poured out in thick, hyperspeed flurries. His attack conjured a 10-car pileup of tones and overtones, an orchestra of reverberation. There were two speeds –- fast and fastest -– as the bespectacled 55-year-old blended the blast-furnace intensity of hardcore with classic pop hooks.” – CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“Mould had his amp cranked up loud and ripped more than a few sick leads when he wasn’t on the mic.” – LA RECORD

“Bob Mould and his crack-backing band attacked everything at full velocity, making it all sound like the work of a scrappy basement punk band determined to break through and conquer the world…Mould is on a hell of a run in both the studio and on the stage at the moment. His song craft and energy shame most younger acts and most of his veteran peers. – STEREOGUM

While in Los Angeles for his debut performance at The Hollywood Bowl, Bob and longtime band members bassist Jason Narducy and drummer Jon Wurster filmed an episode for “Last Call With Carson Daly” at The Echoplex. Watch their high-octane performances of “Black Confetti” and “The Descent”.

‘Skeleton Tree’ Out Now On Bad Seed Ltd. via KLS
‘One More Time With Feeling’ Returning to Cinemas December 1


Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ newly announced North American tour will kick off at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY on May 26, 2017. The 19-date tour will make its way across the continent and will conclude June 29 at Los Angeles’ historic Greek Theatre.

The band were last in North America in 2014 with critical response being best described as ‘blown away en masse’:

“Visions of murder, catastrophe, transfiguration and desperate love issued from the stage, set to dirges, stomps and inexorable crescendos.” – NEW YORK TIMES

“Right up there amongst the best frontmen of this or any generation. No one on the circuit can both command and terrify a crowd quite like Nick Cave.” – DALLAS OBSERVER

“Thanks, Nick Cave, for ruining pretty much every other show we’re going to see for the rest of the month. Or year. Or ever. There’s no way anybody is going to top what we saw on Saturday night… it was a mind-blowing evening of rock ‘n’ roll.” – NASHVILLE SCENE

“Towering over everyone else, however, were… the Bad Seeds, whose merciless performance, delivered with the fury of hellhounds unleashed, easily stole Sunday from any up-and-comers…” – OC REGISTER

September saw the release of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ 16th studio album ‘Skeleton Tree’ and the companion film ‘One More Time With Feeling’ directed by Andrew Dominik. The theatrical success of the film was such that a second run is now confirmed nationwide starting December 1 (Tickets available for purchase at ‘Skeleton Tree’ topped the chart across the globe and achieved the bands highest US chart position to date.

Iggy Pop
Austin City Limits TV Appearance To Air October 29 
UK Music Video Award-Winning Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall Concert Video Out October 28
Triple Vinyl Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall Out February 10, 2017



On Saturday, October 29, Austin City Limits TV will air a once in lifetime performance by the immortal Iggy Pop backed by the crack outfit led by Joshua Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age. This chance to witness one of the barely two dozen shows supporting Iggy’s wildly acclaimed Post Pop Depression (Rekords Rekords/Loma Vista/Caroline International) should not be missed. Accompanied by Post Pop Depressionco-creator Homme and his A-Team of his Queens Of The Stone Age cohorts Dean Fertita and Troy Van Leeuwen, Matt Helders of Arctic Monkeys and journeyman bassist/guitarist/producer Matt Sweeney, Iggy rages through a once in a lifetime set  focused almost entirely on the new album and his two 1977 David Bowie-produced classics, The Idiot and Lust For Life. 

The day before the ACL TV broadcast, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release the UK Music Video Award-Winning Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall on DVD, Blu-ray, DVD+2CD and Digital. This film captures the penultimate performance of the historic limited run of Post Pop Depression shows as Iggy, Homme and crew peeling the paint off the bones of one of the world’s most prestigious venues with an utterly electrifying performance. Reaction to the show was equally over the top from the crowd (as seen in the video) as from the UK media: The Independent hailed the show as “as downright brilliant a rock n roll show as it is possible to see, the NME called it “one of the most memorable gigs of the year… the performance of a lifetime,” and the Guardian raved “a five-star spectacle that proves just how peerless Iggy Pop is.” That unforgettable evening’s performance of Lust For Life classic “The Passenger” can be viewed at:

Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall will also be available as triple vinyl concert album, out February 10, 2017 via Rekords Rekords/Loma Vista/Caroline International.

Post Pop Depression is equal parts a dream come true for co-creator Homme as it is a record that defiantly takes its place in Iggy’s storied discography alongside the twin towers of The Idiot and Lust For Life–two records and the mythic Berlin era of their creation canonized as much lyrically (“German Days”) as sonically (“Sunday“) on this new record. The album is a singular work that bears its creators’ undeniable sonic DNA while sounding like nothing they’ve done before. Entering the U.S. chart at #17, Post Pop Depression instantly became the highest U.S. charting album of Iggy’s storied and tumultuous career—an all-too-rare instance of commercial reception to one of Iggy’s finest works matching an enthusiastic critical response that included:

“Post Pop Depression runs the gamut from quiet introspection to brash rebellion — and stands tall as some of Pop’s most essential work in years.” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“There exists nobody on Earth quite like Iggy Pop, and his great new album is further proof.” — NEW YORK

“Picks up where Lust for Life left off… At once brutally effective and utterly clear: a crystalline hammer.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Iggy in finer form than ever and Homme’s distinctive driving guitar melodies firmly anchoring his florid vocals. Basically: it’s shit hot stuff” — NOISEY

“The 68-year-old proto-punk icon will not be stopped… Awesomely gnarled” — ROLLING STONE

“A legendary rock n roll character like no other… one of the most vital and engaged works of his career” — TIME

LAZARUS CAST ALBUM 2CD / 3LP / Digital Album Featuring Three Final David Bowie Recordings To Be Released October 21 On ISO / Columbia Records


“Killing A Little Time,” one of three new David Bowie original tracks included on the Lazarus Cast Album  has premiered on

Set for release this Friday, October 21 on ISO/Columbia Records, the Lazarus Cast Album features interpretations of classics from the Bowie canon as performed by the cast and house band of the acclaimed off Broadway production.

Exclusive to the album are three final David Bowie studio recordings. Co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti and recorded with Donny McCaslin and his quartet (the same band that played on Bowie’s ★ album), these songs —“Killing A Little Time,”  “No Plan,” and “When I Met You” — bring completely new dimensions to their Lazarus cast counterparts. The original ★ version of “Lazarus” is also included on the cast album.

The Lazarus Cast Album was produced by the show’s musical director Henry Hey, who had previously worked with Bowie on The Next Day, and features vocals from Hall, Caruso, Cristin Milioti, Michael Esper, Charlie Pollock and other cast members backed by the seven-piece house band Hey assembled for the New York run. The album was recorded January 11, 2016. Upon arriving at the studio, the musicians and cast were shocked and saddened to learn that Bowie had passed away the evening before. Their emotional performances that day are captured on this recording.

Written by Bowie and Enda Walsh, directed by Ivo Van Hove and produced by Robert Fox, Lazarus opened December 7, 2015 at the New York Theatre Workshop to great critical acclaim. The New York Times raved “Ice-cold bolts of ecstasy shoot like novas through the glamorous muddle and murk of Lazarus, the great-sounding, great-looking and mind-numbing new musical built around songs by David Bowie,” while Rolling Stone hailed it as a “Surrealistic Tour de Force… milk-swimming, lingerie-sniffing, gin-chugging theater at its finest.”

Lazarus begins its London run November 8 at The Kings Cross Theatre.

Following its surprise premiere on KCRW yesterday morning, the remix of Beck’s smash Day-Glo psych hop anthem “Wow” by Los Angeles producer TOKiMONSTA is now available to stream and download across digital platforms:

The “Wow (TOKiMONSTA Remix)” adds yet another dimension to Beck’s “outrageous pop anthem” (ROLLING STONE) and its “kaleidoscopic chorus” (USA TODAY), as did last month’s mind-bending video directed by Beck and Grady Hall.

In that time, the original “Wow” single and its video have racked up listens and views in the cumulative tens of millions, with digital track sales in the hundreds of thousands and a spot in the top 100 songs sought out on Shazam this week.

“Wow” follows last year’s summer smash “Dreams” as the second single from Beck’s forthcoming 13th album, his first full length studio effort since 2014’s Album of the Year GRAMMY winner Morning Phase (Capitol).



Vinyl box set of classic mono recordings to be released
December 16, 2016
The Mono Collection contains 10 albums spanning 1964 to 1969,
all on 180g vinyl plus lavish hardcover 48-page book
Available For Pre-Order Now Through Amazon


The Kinks –The Mono Collection packages the band’s first 8 albums in glorious mono, including the previously out of print in the U.S. mono mix of ‘Live At Kelvin Hall’. The set also includes the bonus double LP compilation ‘The Kinks’ (aka ‘The Black Album’) PLUS a lavish hardcover 48-page book including never-before-seen photos and new interviews with Ray Davies, Dave Davies and Mick Avory.

With the recent renewed interest in analog recordings in the vinyl format, these essential Kinks albums have been collected together, as their original vintage 1960s equivalents continue to command major sums on the collectors’ market. From the real-time invention of the punk and heavy metal riff on “You Really Got Me”, “All Day And All of The Night” and “I Need You”, the melodic mellotron swirls throughout “Autumn Almanac” and “Days” to the bold brass characterising “Victoria” and “Shangri-La”, the full spectrum of The Kinks In Mono is here to be appreciated and enjoyed anew.

Brash, loud, quirky, reflective – are just some of the opposing adjectives that have been applied to The Kinks. While hailed as one of the great British singles bands of the 1960s, the superlative run of albums they released during those years chart a fascinating career trajectory – from young, white London boys emulating black Chicago R&B on their debut through to ambitious thematic works like ‘The Village Green Preservation Society’ and ‘Arthur’ that anticipated Ray Davies’ ambitions in film and theatre.

In between, ‘Kinda Kinks’ and ‘The Kink Kontroversy’ testify to the relentless, white hot pace of creative output demanded by their record label Pye in the mid ’60s (both were released within the year 1965). ‘Face To Face’ and ‘Something Else By The Kinks’ illustrate Ray Davies’ vision expanding beyond the traditional ’60s pop format, containing such evocative character vignettes as “Rosie Won’t You Please Come Home”, “Two Sisters” and “David Watts” (later a hit in its own right for The Jam). There was even room in the catalog for a primitively recorded but excitingly executed audio vérité concert document (‘Live At Kelvin Hall’). The quality of the albums was further bolstered by the inclusion of such timeless Kinks hits as “You Really Got Me”, “Tired Of Waiting For You”, “Till The End Of The Day”, “Sunny Afternoon” and “Waterloo Sunset” as well as Dave Davies’ solo emergence with “Death Of A Clown” and “Susannah’s Still Alive”.

Throughout the 1970s and beyond these classic recordings were mainly available in stereo – sometimes rechannelled stereo which blunted their dynamism. This state of affairs overlooked a key thing – the albums were originally conceived with Mono in mind. Unlike America, until the late 1960s, stereo was considered something of a novelty in Britain. For the leading players in the British beat boom, all efforts were directed at perfecting recordings made to be heard on radiograms, Dansettes and tinny transistor speakers. “I wanted the tracks to sound how we would play them live,” Ray says of the Kinks’ early recordings. “I wrote lots of songs for a particular sound and production.”

The Kinks – The Mono Collection will be released December 16, 2016 by BMG and is available now for pre-order:

Los Angeles, CA – September 20, 2016  – Since introducing himself to the world in 1994 with his genre-defying, multi-platinum debut, Mellow Gold, Beck has blazed a path into the future while simultaneously foraging through the past. Throughout his singular career he has utilized all manners and eras of music, blurring boundaries and shattering expectations with each album. From the world-tripping atmospherics of 1998’s Mutations and the florescent funk of 1999’s Midnite Vultures through the somber reflections of 2002’s Sea Change, 2005’s platinum tour de force Guero and 2006’s sprawling The Information, no Beck record has ever sounded like its predecessor.

This fall, UMe will begin to reissue Beck’s entire envelope-pushing DGC/Geffen/Interscope catalog on vinyl, beginning on October 28 with the trifecta of his 1996 GRAMMY® Award-winning single LP game-changer, Odelay, 2002’s beautiful, brokenhearted, Sea Change, and 2005’s Guero, which saw Beck reunite with the Dust Brothers. Sea Change will be released as a double LP while Guero will be made available for the first time ever as a single LP. Mellow Gold, Mutations, Midnight Vultures, The Information and Modern Guilt will be announced at a later date. Pre-order: Odelay, Sea Change, Guero.

Originally released 20 years ago on June 18, 1996 on DGC, Odelay was Beck’s breakthrough follow-up to his platinum bow, Mellow Gold. Selling more than two million copies in the U.S., the double-platinum-certified Odelay featured classics that loom large in Beck’s live sets to this day, including “Where It’s At,” “Devils Haircut” and “The New Pollution.” Odelay won two GRAMMY® Awards in 1997, Best Alternative Music Album and Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for “Where It’s At,” and was Beck’s first album to be nominated for Album of the Year—the top honor his most recent album Morning Phase took home last year. Produced by Beck with collaborators the Dust Brothers, Mario Caldato Jr., Brian Paulson, Tom Rothrock and Rob Schnapf, Odelay continued to demonstrate and expand upon Beck’s eclectic stylistic palette. It was universally praised upon its release, named Album of the Year in both Rolling Stone and the prestigious Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics’ poll, as well as the U.K. New Musical Express’ critics’ poll, where the album represented Beck’s platinum breakthrough in England. In 1998, Q magazine readers voted Odelay one of the greatest albums of all time, while Rolling Stone ranked it in its 2003 list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time,” and #9 on its list of the “100 Best Albums of the ‘90s.”

Pre-order Odelay: BeckOdelayLP

Beck’s seventh album, Sea Change, signified a dramatic musical shift in sound and tone from its predecessor, the funky, R&B-influenced Midnite Vultures, and as its title suggested, was a profound transformation. Inspired by the dissolution of a longtime relationship, Beck transformed his sadness into both his most personal and beautiful record to date, trading his trademark sample-filled songs and impressionistic, irreverent lyrics for pensive melodies, sweeping strings and direct, confessional lyrics. Produced by Nigel Godrich, the album, which peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200, was made with a full band which included guitarist Smokey Hormel, keyboard player Roger Manning, drummer Joey Waronker; Beck’s father, David Campbell, provided string arrangements. While widely praised upon release in 2002, the album has only grown in stature. Rolling Stone’s David Fricke hailed it as “the best album Beck has ever made,” adding it’s his “Blood On The Tracks,” and the record was listed in their 2009 definitive list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” and the “100 Best Albums of the 2000s.” In SPIN’s 10-year anniversary piece, they declared it “the best melancholy album of the millennium” while The Guardiancalled it “his masterpiece.” The album will be released as a double LP with a download card featuring 320kbps AAC MP4 audio files of the entire album.

Pre-order Sea Change: BeckSeaChangeLP

Beck kept fans and critics guessing about how he’d follow up Sea Change and in 2005 released the genre-mashing Guero which shot to #2 on the Billboard Top 200–his highest charting album to date. Beck’s eighth album saw him reuniting with the Dust Brothers with an assist from producer Tony Hoffer (Midnite Vultures), for a tour de force of Latin rhythms, rhymes, guitars, beats, samples, 8-bit electronics, turntables and vocoder for a fun and freewheeling ride through rock, hip-hop, boss nova, country-blues and soul. Album opener and lead single, “E-Pro” went to No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart, while “Girl,” “Hell Yes,” “Go It Alone” (featuring Jack White on bass) and more became instant fan favorites. The album was a hit with critics as well with New York magazine enthusing, “Beck integrates his personae into a fairly seamless whole, and his knack for synthesizing disparate musical elements (hip-hop, robot funk, blues, country, jazz, garage rock, etc.) extends beyond samples and individual tracks. The songs migrate smoothly from one to the next; there aren’t any throwaway numbers to sabotage the album’s momentum; the whole thing coheres,” while Rolling Stone dubbed it “his liveliest and jumpiest music in years.”
