First Listen: Perfume Genius, 'Too Bright'
Mike Hadreas, better known as Perfume Genius, offers us a first listen of his new album Too Bright. More than on his two previous albums, Perfume Genius explores musical possibilities to transfer his most personal stories. We can't wait until his performance at Le Guess Who? on Friday November 21, together with Dr. John & The Nite Trippers, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Ought, Rodion G.A. and many others.
Stream a Rediscovered Early 80s Track From Rodion G.A., the Romanian Syd Barrett | NOISEY
‘The Romanian Syd Barrett’; Noisey on Rodion G.A. On October 20, Rodion G.A.’s Behind The Curtain - The Lost Album will be released. Recorded at the height of Romanian dictator Ceausescu’s suppression and censorship, this music was truly innovative and against the grain. The album was feared missing since the late 80s when Rodion lost his mother and turned his back on music. Listen to the first track Dans Macabru via the link below. Rodion G.A. will play Le Guess Who? on Friday, November 21.
Steve Gunn - Way Out Weather (Official Video)
In October, guitarist Steve Gunn will release a brand new album. As a warm-up you can watch and listen to the wonderful first single & title song Way Out Weather. Photographer/director KT Auleta took a cross-country motorcycle trip through Mongolia and put these beautiful images together with the song:

Amen Dunes "Splits are Parted" Official Music Video
Check out Amen Dunes' new video for the charmingly unpolished Splits Are Parted, from his latest album Love. The flickering, disjointed images by Jesse Hlebo and Damon McMahon are best watched in full-screen mode and with the lights out. Amen Dunes will play Le Guess Who? Sunday November 23 with Selda, St. Vincent, tUnE-yArDs, Sleaford Mods, Steve Gunn, Daniel Norgren, Peter Walker and lots more.
There’s a magnificent story on the legendary Dr. John in the new issue of MOJO Magazine. It involves his debut album Gris-Gris, voodoo, a guided tour of his hometown New Orleans and that time Art Blakey pulled a gun on him... Dr. John & The Nite Trippers will play Le Guess Who? Festival on Friday November 21 together with Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Perfume Genius, Owen Pallett, Ought, The Fresh & Onlys, Rodion G.A. and lots more.
Next week, September 15-21, the Incubate Festival will take place in Tilburg, NL. Here is our list to a perfect #incu14 (in random order): 1. Tweens Garage rock & roll with a bit of doo-wop and girlie charm. This trio from Cincinnati makes us wanna shimmy and shake at a high school prom and we’re sure that this is going to be a legendary show hosted by the cool kids from Nightbirds. 2. Gazelle Twin Pushing the boundaries with her videos and music, Gazelle Twin (the mysterious Elizabeth Bernholz)’s art rock is sure to make this a night worth remembering. Trust us, she’ll shake your bones with her hauntingly music. 3. Goat Goat equals explosion. Enough said. 4. The Wytches This UK dark surf/psych band from Brighton sometimes sounds haunting and hectic both lyrically and musically, like a dark cloud before a storm. Dudok is the place to be on Sunday. 5. Audacity Denim jackets and tie dye at the ready! These guys, part of the Burger Records family, write power pop songs with a dash of punk and garage. If you’re knackered from the previous days of Incubate you’ll feel refreshed after their performance.
