Sonic Roundup 11/15

  • As you probably know by now, Sonic Youth frontcouple Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon have called it quits. The future of the band remains uncertain, as Moore continues his solo tour, so if you’re looking to relive that live Sonic Youth experience, look no further than this pretty-good recording of what may become their final show, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Below is part one of the 70-minute set; catch part two and part three, respectively.

  • On the Morning Show today, John Richards debuted a new song from Seattle singer/songwriter Damien Jurado‘s forthcoming album, Maraqopa, just announced for a February 12 release on Secretly Canadian. Now you can download it and listen to it for yourself:

Damien Jurado – Nothing is the News (MP3)

  • Mysterious garage-rock group WU LYF have a new video for “We Bros,” in which kids run at breakneck speed through wooded areas. Really, that’s one of the only things you can do when listening to WU LYF, but the clip manages to capture their anarchist spirit pretty well. Check it out for yourself, and be sure to catch them at the Crocodile in Seattle this Saturday!

  • Black Lips probably didn’t time their latest video release this way on purpose, but their new clip for “Raw Meat” sees the band don NYPD uniforms, riding around in a 1970s police car. No word yet on whether or not they aided in the police raid of the Occupy New York protest.

  • Controversial witch house trio Salem have announced a follow-up to their 2010 album King Night in the form of a four-song EP, I’m Still In The Night. Included in the tracklist is a cover of Alice Deejay‘s “Better Off Alone,” which has an accompanying video below, featuring “found footage” of Gisele B√ľndchen being followed by paparazzi. I’m Still In The Night drops November 22nd via IAMSOUND.
