Latest updates about “Brooklyn Vegan”

Ezra Furman tells us about her Top Five Records of 2022
Brooklyn Vegan

“As is widely known, I have the correct music taste,” Ezra Furman says, tongue perhaps in cheek, in presenting us with her list of favorite music of 2022. “Other people are in error. For example, the number one album of 2022 seems to be something called Mind-Nights by Tailor Swift. The most talked-about artist of the year is Conye West, who very clearly said ‘slavery was a choice’ in 2018, giving decent people reason to ignore him forever, and yet he is still selling lots of records and commanding the public eye. Meanwhile the transgender rock’n’roll artists creating the great classics of our era (Alex Walton, Asher White, Harmony’s Cuddle Party) go mostly unheard and unheralded.”

Brooklyn Vegan

“OSEES have shared a video for “Scum Show” from this year’s very punk A Foul Form. Directed by Malo Sutra Fish on a Super 8 camera with hand processing and animation by l’Etna Collective Lab, the video is as raw and visceral as the song itself. You can watch that below.

The band have also shared the video of their recent KEXP session which has John Dwyer and crew blazing through tracks off the new album — watch that below as well”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard share “Hate Dancin’” video from new album ‘Changes’
Brooklyn Vegan

This Friday, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard release Changes, their third album of October 2022 following Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava and Laminated Denim. That will also be their fifth album of the year, not counting the remix album they dropped in January. They’ve just shared the video for “Hate Dancin'” from the album and it’s on the group’s poppier side. “I started writing a song about how I hate dancing, but then I realized that I love dancing,” says KG frontman Stu Mackenzie. The video has the band showing off their moves and you can watch that below.

Brooklyn Vegan

“King Gizzard are very busy this month; in addition to being on tour in North America they’re releasing three albums in three weeks. Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava was released last week, and now here’s Laminated Denim, the band’s 22 album in 10 years. They call this a “spiritual successor” to Made in Timeland from earlier this year — “Laminated Denim” is also an anagram of “Made in Timeland” — and it consists of two very jammy 15-minute songs, “The Land Before Timeland” and “Hypertension.”

Brooklyn Vegan

Indie Basement’s quiet but very hot August continues, and this week includes: the swaggering debut album from Speedy Wunderground-signed The Lounge Society; new DFA signees JJULIUS; cinematic guitarist Rachika Nayar; Ezra Furman finds empathy at the edge of the apocalypse; Pantha du Prince gets one with nature; and ’90s electronica producer William Orbit returns with his first album in eight years featuring Beth Orton and more.

“After a long day of truck stop fights, hitchhiking and getting kicked off trains, our beloved rapscallion protagonist decides to spend the night in an abandoned junkyard,” says Murlocs frontman Ambrose Kenny-Smith.

The latest single from Ezra Furman’s new album All of Us Flames is “Poor Girl A Long Way From Heaven.” “The spiritual life ain’t all pious platitudes,” Ezra says.

Ty Segall announces new album “Hello, Hi” and shares title track
Brooklyn Vegan

‘Ty Segall has announced his 14th solo album “Hello, Hi” that will be out July 22 via Drag City. After the synthesized gleam of Harmonizer, he’s going in a different direction this time: “Tossing down straight acoustic shots with electric guitar back, ‘Hello, Hi’ rides through the valley of yer ol’ Canyon legends, finding an isolated place to unspool Ty’s copious reserves of nervous energy beneath an open sky.’

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard share “KEPLER-22B,” add third Red Rocks show
Brooklyn Vegan

‘King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s sprawling new double album Omnium Gatherum is out this Friday. Where previous albums find the Australian group focusing on a style (thrash metal, boogie, pop) or concept (microtonal instruments), Omnium Gatherum is more of a smorgasbord, offering up little tastes — and some big ones — of everything they’ve dabbled in over the last 10 years.’

11 New Songs Out Today – EZRA FURMAN – “BOOK OF OUR NAMES”
Brooklyn Vegan

‘Ezra Furman says new single “Book of Our Names” is “what it feels like to live together under an empire that doesn’t value your lives. I sing it as a Jew and as a trans woman, knowing well the stakes and consequences of being part of a hated population. But it is a protest song intended for use by any movement for collective survival and freedom.’

Indie Basement (1/21): King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard – Butterfly 3001
Brooklyn Vegan

‘King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard made their biggest zag yet with last year’s Butterfly 3000 which found the tripped-out, microtonal-loving Aussie psych band successfully exploring danceable pop music. It makes sense then, that they’d farm out the record for remixes. As someone who was into dance music and indie/alt in the ’90s, I am a fan of remixes and still own many CD singles of wild Andrew Weatherall, Terry Farley, Todd Terry and Fred Falke reworks of Saint Etienne, Bjork, etc. Butterfly 3001 is very much in that spirit and there’s a lot of great stuff here.’

King Gizzard share DJ Shadow rework of “Black Hot Soup” & its amazing video
Brooklyn Vegan

“In awesome late-’90s style, DJ Shadow grabs hold of one line from King Gizzard’s original and turns it into an entirely new, banging club track full of breakbeats, killer basslines and lots of turntablism. The remix also comes with great music video made by John Angus Stewart that stars Australian radio DJ, humorist, and filmmaker John Safran as an aging club kid who is past his prime but still goes hard. It’s one of those videos, like Spike Jonze’s video for Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You,” that make the song better.”

King Gizzard announce remix album ft DJ Shadow, Flaming Lips, Confidence Man, more
Brooklyn Vegan

‘King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are releasing a remix album, titled Butterfly 3001, which will be out January 24 via KGLW. It features remixes and reworks of songs from this year’s Butterfly 3000 by DJ Shadow, The Flaming Lips, DāM-FunK, Geneva Jacuzzi, Peaches, Peaking Lights, Confidence Man, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, and more.’

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard announce new album ‘Butterfly 3000′
Brooklyn Vegan

‘Because it’s been almost three months since they released a new album, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced they’ll be back with Butterfly 3000 on June 11 via their own KGLW label. It’ll be their 18th album and according to the press release it’s a suite of 10 songs that “all began life as arpeggiated loops composed on modular synthesisers” before being fleshed out and transformed by the six-piece band. The band describe this one as “melodic + psychedelic.”

17 New Songs Out Today: JESS CORNELIUS – “BODY MEMORY (PEACH FUZZ VERSION)”
Brooklyn Vegan

‘LA based Australian artist Jess Cornelius released Distance last year and she’s now shared an alternate version of that album’s “Body Memory.” “I’d started playing the song for myself in a totally different way – on echoey guitar instead of keys, with a dreamy, melancholic mood, and wanted to record it as a sort of ‘part two’,” says Jess.’

Listen to King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s new album ‘L.W.’
Brooklyn Vegan

“King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s 17th album, L.W., is out Friday and you can stream it now because it’s already Friday in Australia and the band have flipped the switch on their Bandcamp. This is third album in their “microtonal” series (that includes 2020’s K.G. and 2017’s Flying Mictrotonal Banana) that explores “the notes between the notes.” The record ranges from psychedelic folk to doomy heaviness.”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard detail new album ‘L.W.’ (listen to “Pleura”)
Brooklyn Vegan

“King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have made it official — thier 17th album is titled L.W. and it will be out digitally next week (Feb 26) via Flightless, with physical editions out in the spring. The band are calling it a companion piece to last year’s K.G. and an extension of the musical explorations of the “notes between the notes” first heard on 2017’s Flying Mictrotonal Banana.”
