Like so many other fans we thought Gustavo Cerati was going to get out of that coma. His last album is so full of beautiful messages about life, it really was a goodbye :(
Autumn is in the air with Other LIves! This is a beautiful performance that has everyone on the comments asking “where is Jenny?”. Here’s hoping she’s still around.
FKA twigs - ‘Hide’ (Live in Tulum, Mexico)
We’re not feeling Twigs as much as many people are these days but there’s no doubt this girl is talented. While most of her songs are pretty much misses for me, this version of ‘Hide’ stopped me in my tracks. Her voice literally made chills go up and down my spine! Incredible. —Cheep
SBTRKT - War Drums (feat. Emily Kokal of Warpaint)
Aaron Jerome + Emily Kokal are a match made in our dreams come to life!
Operators - Full Performance (Live on KEXP)
Missing Operators like crazy. That dance party at Baby’s All Right was everything!
Last night, we unofficially said goodbye to summer the same way we welcomed it in — by seeing Interpol perform at one of our favorite places in NYC. At Governors Ball, we saw them together for the first time, outdoors, as the sun set, dancing in the breeze. This perfect scenario only managed to open up a hunger for them in a live setting that could not be quelled. We needed the music and the tidal wave of swoon caused by the glowing happiness that emanated from that stage, ASAP. Seeing them at T5 was not an option but thanks to our Moz’s keen eye we didn’t have to miss their NYC return last night at our homegirl, Sekhmet's house aka The Met's Temple of Dendur. For a whole hour, we were sighing puddles in the crowd (too far to take a decent phone pic but close enough to jump up there and kiss em if we were so inclined) watching them play an ultimate death set filled with classic hits, a couple of deep cuts and of course some new favorites from El Pintor.
Oh, the intimacy! Oh, the sound! We hadn’t seen such a magical mix of our modern and ancient loves since Liars played there a while ago. And just like that, only a few months later, Interpol managed to outdo their own perfection in our eyes with this exclusive all-too-New-York-in-the-best-way event. That’s not to say the hunger has satiated, with Interpol it never is. They are just too good a live band, always leaving us feeling like when people first fell in love with Coca-Cola, “Me, me, me, me, me, me! I want more!” If we didn’t have a date with Werner Herzog at BAM tomorrow night, surely we’d be trying to get into that Bowery Ballroom show, oh well! Maybe we will cave and try to go to Terminal 5 in November if the feels are stronger than our hate for that venue. —Cheep

Well, catching up with what’s been up with our boys from Rocketnumbernine and discovered this remix they just did for HK119… and of course it is the shit.
