Le Tigre Roar Back for First Tour in 18 Years
“Electro-punk outfit will kick off a global trek in May”
“Electro-punk outfit will kick off a global trek in May”
“Mac DeMarco — fresh off his annual Christmas cover — will kick off 2023 with his first new album in four years, Five Easy Hot Dogs. The instrumental album will arrive on Jan. 20 on digital/CD, while a vinyl drop is scheduled for May 12 via Mac’s Record Label.”
“Book of Our Names” follows “Point Me Toward The Real,” which Furman released last month, marking her first solo offering since her 2019 album Twelve Nudes. “Point Me Toward the Real” and “Book of Our Names” also mark her first new music since coming out as a transgender woman in 2021.’
‘Jack White’s Supply Chain Issues world tour will feature a dozen special guest openers across the scheduled 59-date international trek. Among them are punk outfit Be Your Own Pet, who will reunite after 14 years to perform two opening gigs.
Be Your Own Pet will take the stage for the first time since splitting in 2008, first in Atlanta for White’s third night at the Tabernacle on April 28 and again on April 30 to perform a hometown show in Nashville at the Ascend Amphitheater.’
…“Spit” is another blast of blown-out, big riff rock from a group that’s always reliable in that realm, with drummer and singer Ty Segall presiding over the crunch with a vocal performance that edges on the serene. While the song packs an immediate punch, in a statement, guitarist Charles Moothart noted it was designed to have “a subtle tweak that over time gets more obvious. The verse riff almost feels like you’re falling asleep at the wheel then the chorus opens up with a melodic but sharp riff that adds to the punch-drunk feeling of the verse.”
““Returning” is a three-minute blast of big riffs, bruising bass and battering drums, with Segall howling the song’s final refrain, “There is no sum greater than one.”…”
Fuzz — the trio of Ty Segall, Charles Moothart, and Chad Ubovich — will embark on their first North American tour in five years this May.
The run kicks off May 27th at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco and crisscrosses the United States and Canada over the next month, with a special three-night run at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles June 5th through 7th. Fuzz will wrap the trek June 28th at Mr. Small’s Theater in Pittsburgh.
Tickets for the tour go on sale January 31st at 10 a.m. CT. Per a press release, additional Fuzz news will be announced in the coming weeks.
The band will kick off their tour on March 13th in Olympia, Washington with a special Interfaith Benefit show. Interfaith Works Nightly Shelter is a shelter/homeless program that works specifically with women and LGBTQ adults in that area. After that, the band will remain on the road through a Milwaukee gig on May 24th. Tickets go on sale November 8th.
Rock royalty Joan Jett joined legendary punks Bikini Kill onstage Tuesday night, for a live performance of their anthemic 1993 single, “Rebel Girl.” Set in Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre, it was the band’s seventh stop on their prodigious reunion tour.

Ezra Furman Rebels Against Broken Society in ‘Calm Down aka I Should Not Be Alone’ Video

On Tuesday Ezra Furman announced a new album, Twelve Nudes, and released its first single, “Calm Down aka I Should Not Be Alone.” The song is accompanied by a surreal animated video by Beth Jeans Houghton, a.k.a. Du Blonde.
Mac DeMarco is hanging out at home in Los Angeles, playing video games on the couch, when he picks up the phone. “I don’t really know what’s going on, but let’s rock and roll!” he says.
This might be the most Mac DeMarco way possible to begin a conversation. His unflappably chill folk-rock tunes, laced with a surreal sense of humor, have made the Canadian singer-songwriter an unlikely star. Since breaking through with 2014’s Salad Days, he’s gone from a cult hero to a bankable live draw with hundreds of millions of Spotify streams — all despite making virtually no effort to keep up with contemporary music. (He’d rather listen to “Japanese music from the ’60s and ’70s, and The Beatles.”)
Ty Segall makes a lot of noise. Since 2008, the California garage-rocker has released nearly a dozen solo albums, plus quite a few collaborations, EPs, one-off singles and more. This summer and fall, Segall will explore his back catalog with a series of multi-night residencies in Los Angeles and New York at which he’ll perform several of his best-loved albums in full.
Mac DeMarco unveiled “Nobody,” a desolate track set to appear on his next album, Here Comes the Cowboy. It’s out May 10th via his own Mac’s Record Label. “Nobody” is stripped down and ambling: Built around prickly guitars and a steady clop of drums and bass. DeMarco sings, “There’s no turning back/To nobody/There’s no second chance/No third degree.”
Feminist punk pioneers Bikini Kill have announced they will reunite for a handful of dates this spring. The lineup includes singer Kathleen Hanna, drummer Tobi Vail and bassist Kathi Wilcox, along with guitarist Erica Dawn Lyle who replaces guitarist Billy Karren.
As his band releases its 20th album, the prolific musician and label head explains how ‘D&D’ and a “zen” work ethic fuel his underground empire
Mac DeMarco’s head voyages through time and space – on the nose of a pug – in the psychedelic, virtual reality video for “This Old Dog.”
Lo-fi rocker unveils first two songs, “My Old Man” and “This Old Dog,” from first full-length album since 2014’s “Salad Days”
Garage rock hero Ty Segall wanders through a dystopian Los Angeles filled with blood-sucking cops and phone-faced drones in the surreal short film for his new album, Emotional Mugger.
You could accuse Ty Segall of having an old-school work ethic – he even circulated early copies of this album on VHS tape. But there’s nothing dusty about him. The San Francisco garage-punk wunderkind flaunts all his frantic energy and wild-eyed humor on Emotional Mugger.
As Melbourne ensemble takes a breather with experimental folky album, it readies its most ambitious release to date.
“Impish indie-rock prince Mac DeMarco treks from the relaxing oceanside edge of Far Rockaway, New York, to a sold-out show in front of a sea of faces at Manhattan’s Webster Hall in our day-in-the-life mini documentary…”
“A boy hero to indie-rock fans who prize delicately demented pop, Mac DeMarco has the casual grace of early Beck, bringing a shambolic scuzz to the creamy sounds of Seventies soft rock…”
Mac DeMarco will release his new mini-album Another One on August 7th, and on Monday, the indie oddball shared “The Way You’d Love Her,” the first track off that eight-track EP.
Indie rock’s favorite goofball Mac DeMarco will follow up his 2014 breakout album, Salad Days, with a new mini-LP titled, Another One, scheduled for release August 7th via Captured Tracks.
Metal guru Ty Segall plays nearly all the instruments, overdubbing himself into a shaggy-ass arena band.
The 24-year-old Canadian singer-guitarist’s second album – a warm, polished set of sun-drenched folk-rock jams – feels like it could have been a lost used-vinyl-bin treasure from the Seventies. DeMarco channels Harry Nilsson, the Beach Boys, Steely Dan and the Beatles, but the offbeat stoner vibes are all him.
