WEEKLY WAX: Vinyl Releases For The Week Of 12/29-1/4

The music industry is always pretty quiet around the new year, and the vinyl world is no exception.

A few noteworthy pre-orders were launched for records from Kanye West, Linkin Park, and Sunn O))), all giants in their own genres, and a number of other releases were announced, with pre-orders coming soon. Check out the full roundup after the break.


Silversun Pickups Stream New Song, Announce Retrospective Release

Bands that still have a lot of life in them should know better than to release retrospectives before they passed their prime, but I guess everybody needs a paycheck now and again.

Silvesun Pickups have been consistantly releasing great music over the last few years, but in early 2014 they are switching things up and delivering a retrospective – aka greatest hits compilation – featuring only a single new track. That song, titled “Cannibal,” is available for streaming starting today. You can experience the track in full at the end of this post.

You never really know what to expect …

Under The Gun sent Head Of Photography, Kellie Gannon, to the Agora in Cleveland August 8 for Silversun Pickups.

Silversun Pickups headlined The Agora in Cleveland recently with direct support from Mona, who are originally Ohio natives. Silversun Pickups are always a joy onstage, both from their intense sound and presence.  I had the pleasure of catching them the last time they came through Cleveland and their set was immaculate. This show was no different!

Austin City Limits Releases Schedule

Austin, TX’s slogan should include not only keeping the DIY-centered city “weird,” but musical too. Austin City Limits returns this year for two weekends, October 4-6 and October 11-13, and the schedule has just been released. Much to festival-goers’ delights, the two weekends have a pretty similar schedule. Much to festival-goers’ disappointment, there are some tough clashes to choose from. Overall, though, I think it looks better than last year’s great lineup.

Pick and plan your (dream) schedule from the set times announced on their official website. Some of the tough clashes include Jimmy Eat World/Smith

Silversun Pickups Perform On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Silversun Pickups stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform two brand new songs for the audience and did a terrific job.

The band performed their songs “Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings)” and “The Pit” off of their studio album, Neck of the Woods. This new album dropped yesterday through Dangerbird Records and it is incredible.

Silversun Pickups Stream New Album

It’s been three years since Silversun Pickups’ last album Swoon gained them a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” but the band is back with their third studio album Neck of the Woods, and it’s currently streaming over at MTV ahead of its May 8 due date via Dangerbird Records.

This album displays the same Silversun sound fans have grown to love but they’ve certainly matured and evolved as they’ve taken their time with the writing and recording process of this one. Go listen through at the MTV link provided above and let UTG know what you think of …

Silversun Pickups – Swoon

swoonArtist: Silversun Pickups
Album: Swoon
Genre: Indie
Label: Dangerbird

In April of this year, the Silversun Pickups quietly released their sophormore effort, Swoon; however, despite the quiet release, their song ‘Panic Switch’ has been taking over alternative radio, MTV2, and collegiate iPods all over. This, quite possibly, sums up the album best; it’s an album of opposites, highs and lows, silence and explosions of sound.

The album begins with ‘There’s No Secrets This Year’, selected as the second single for the album, and it’s obvious why. One of the poppiest tracks on the album, it gets stuck in your head …
