Major Lazer – Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do (Downtown/Inertia)

Posted: 06 Nov 2009 07:59 PM PST

Major Lazer

Separately, both US Baile Funk champion Diplo and UK-based fidget house figurehead Dave ‘Switch / Solid Groove’ Taylor have spent the last few years developing into producer / remixers du jour, with working relationship culminating in collaborative efforts on both MIA’s recent ‘Kala’ album and Santigold’s debut. This debut collaborative effort as Major Lazer sees the duo crafting something of a loose concept album based around a Jamaican commando hired as a renegade soldier by a rogue section of the US government, who lost his arm in the secret Zombie War of 1984. Indeed, there’s certainly a spaghetti western meets GI Joe comics aesthetic to the cartoonish sleeve art, something that’s also brought out more explicitly in the faux-Morricone guitar twangs and horse hoof sound effects that open ‘Hold The Line’ – an electro-Baile Funk excursion featuring Mr Lex and Santigold that manages to work the sampled noise of a mobile phone vibration alarm into its relentlessly cut-up grooves, with knowingly cheesy yet amusing results.

While the aforementioned track is certainly one of the most outwardly Baile Funk-centred moments on offer here, for the most part the stylistic aesthetic here falls more upon electro-dancehall, and indeed it’s no real surprise to find out that ‘Guns…’ was recorded and mixed at Bob Marley’s legendary Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica. If the Ms. Thing-fronted ‘When You Hear The Bassline’ offers a more streamlined, electro and vocoders-laden take on the dancehall genre that calls to mind Ms Thing and Switch’s prior collaboration on the ‘2 Culture Clash’ compilation, ‘Anything Goes’ featuring Turbulence gets far more sparse and bleepy, with the addition of sampled gunfire and eerie minor key cinematic orchestration contributing just the right edge of uneasy undercurrent. Elsewhere, ‘Mary Jane’ offers up the obligatory bong suck-sampling weed anthem complete with brass band tubas and tweaked out Daft Punk-esque backing vocals, and while it’s suitably infantile, it actually fits quite well alongside the likes of ‘Bruk Out’, which basically revolves around T.O.K. Telling us just how many women he’s gonna shag and how. While a lot of the 13 tracks here don’t exactly offer up too much in the deep stakes, those tickled by Diplo and Switch’s previous production outings for MIA and Santigold should find that ‘Guns…’ provides some decent party fodder.

The Walkmen with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart @ Irvine Auditorium, Philadelphia

Posted: 07 Nov 2009 01:13 PM PST

Last night, mostly local The Walkmen performed at the University of Pennsylvania’s Irvine Auditorium in University City, Philadelphia. Despite some parking issues and then list frustrations (i.e.- not being on it, but thanks Matt Barrick, The Walkmen’s drummer, for taking care of business), I was impressed when I walked into the space. Built in 1926, it appears to have been a church at some point, mostly it was the high vaulted ceilings, but it’s a wonderful live performance space with a capacity of over 1,000 and great acoustics.Pains of Being Pure at Heart

Openers The Pains of Being Pure at Heart put on an impressive performance that was equal parts sentimental, lively and poppy. Front man Kip Berman, whose soft vocals were complimented beautifully by those of keyboardist , beseeched the audience to not heckle (which they did not), as his grandparents were in the crowd and he wanted them to “think we’re cool.” It was rather endearing, but unnecessary as the entire audience was either transfixed by the sweet indie pop songs or dancing along with the catchy beats emanating from the stage.

For all the energy that The Pains of Being Pure at Heart produced with their energetic sound, the atmosphere took on a much more relaxed feel once the Walkmen took to the stage. The band’s lack of energy throughout the beginning of the set brought down the entire room, save for the one really drunk [he had to be] guy jumping up and down the entire set. While aforementioned drummer Matt Barrick really amped up the energy behind his kit throughout the entire set, it wasn’t until about halfway through the set that the rest of the band began to visibly enjoy being on stage.

Front man Hamilton Leithauser announced that the fivesome had been in the studio all week writing a follow up to last year’s You and Me, which the crowd applauded with vigor. The only portion of the set which the crowd wasn’t thrilled about was Hamilton’s mention of the Yankees, who is seems he’s a fan of, but quickly won back the crowd with letting us know that most of the band are Phillies fan.


Baseball rivalries aside, the Walkmen put on a great show. If you’re the Chicago area this week, you can catch the guys playing Schubas 20th Anniversary Concert, which is already sold out, so I hope you’ve got your tickets. If not, we’ve all got a new album to look forward to in 2010.

New Raveonettes Bonus Track

Posted: 07 Nov 2009 09:00 AM PST

“While Supplies Last.” “Quantities Limited.” These phrases are really cool if you are one of the few who gets the exclusive, but if you are too late, they can be highly depressing.raveonettes

Perhaps that was the case with Record Store Day’s Raveonette’s exclusive featuring unreleased “The Chosen One” and “Planes Do Crash.”

Despair no more, you can now stream and download “The Chosen One” and if you want to get your hands on both, buy the full album at and get both the songs.

Butch Walker @ Hotel Cafe, Hollywood CA

Posted: 07 Nov 2009 08:00 AM PST

The Hotel Café in Hollywood has become known for it's intimate setting and drawing the greatest singer/songwriter acts in the industry. Butch Walker is no stranger to this kind of setting, nor to the Hotel Café. In the month of November, he's inhabiting the stage every Wednesday night, playing his solo albums from start to finish. img_1421

From the time I re-located to Los Angeles, I had been incredibly eager to go to a show at this now notable venue, and with great luck, it happened to be Butch: an artist I've been known to obsess over, following him across state lines for shows. It had been a couple of years since I'd been to a show of his, and my excitement mixed with a bit of nerves, not knowing if I could expect the same dynamic experience I'd been privy to in the past.

I was anything but disappointed. On November 4, Butch Walker treated fans to a performance of his 2nd solo album, Letters. If you're familiar with the record, you don't really need to be informed of the setlist. Save for "#1 Summer Jam" and "Thank You Note" he played every track. And fans also needn't be worried about anything that happens onstage. Walker still possesses all of the talent and humor he always has.

The highlight of the night may have been during "Uncomfortably Numb." The crowd was delighted with an entirely new arrangement, featuring Butch playing the mandolin (a first for me to see, and I've seen him 14 times" and a segue into a cover of 's "You Belong With Me." It was also exciting to see him take the one-man-band approach, consistently working a bass drum with one foot and switching between an array of guitars spread over the stage.

And what would a Butch Walker show be without the entire audience softly singing along? Proving that he's completely aware of this fact, Walker turned the mic on the audience for "Best Thing You've Never Had," letting the crowd sing the entire song while he played, like group-live-band-karaoke. The sing-along spectators also saved his ass at one point, when he couldn't remember the words that started the ultimate apology song, "Promise." As he vamped the opening chords, a pensive yet blank look washed over his face as you could see him struggle to remember the lyrics, until a fan audibly prompted, "Well, I fumbled…!" But that kind of slip-up comes off as irrelevant when grading the quality of a Butch Walker show. It's only remembered as a funny moment and proves how devoted his followers are.

Next week, Butch Walker will play through The Rise and Fall of Butch Walker and the Lets-Go-Out-Tonites. I will be there with bells on, trying not to become my old fan-girl self as he plays all the way from "Hot Girls in Good Moods" to "When Canyons Ruled the City." And hopefully, you will be too.
