Tame Impala announces sweeping Australian run, pledges to donate tour proceeds to bushfire reliefTame Impala Kevin Parker Press October 2019

The mastermind behind Tame Impala, Kevin Parker has announced that his psychedelic pop-rock outfit will embark on its most expansive tour of the New Zealand and Australia area to date. Come April, Parker and company will touch down in Auckland, New Zealand for the inaugural show of the five-date run in the region. From there, they’ll make their way through Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and finally, Parker’s hometown of Perth. The leg will mark Tame Impala’s first slate of performances in Australia in four years. The Tame Impala live ensemble will be joined by Khruangbin at each of the five stops.

In addition to setting dates for their Aussie return, Tame Impala also stated that a portion of the band’s 2020 tour proceeds would be donated to support the country’s bushfire relief efforts. “I’ve been hanging out to tour Australia for a long time now, so I’m super excited to finally be able to announce [these dates],” Parker said in a statement. And it seems he’ll be putting the money to good use.

In the past few weeks, I’ve been devastated to see what’s been happening with the fires at home and we want to do our bit to help, so we’re going to be donating $A300,000 ($206,000 USD) to bushfire relief charities.

-Parker

The Australia dates are part of Tame Impala’s larger 2020 tour fabric. The indie fan favorite will also be making an entrance for several US and Mexican dates in support of their forthcoming LP, The Slow Rush, due February 14.

Jai Wolf drops new anthem ‘Moon Rider,’ along with new tour dates

Right off the bat, Jai Wolf‘s latest invokes strong feelings of being in the open air under the stars at Red Rocks, and if that doesn’t excite fans to see the Cure To Loneliness producer there later this summer, maybe nothing will.

Jai Wolf’s latest delivery, “Moon Rider” is an anthemic stadium pop track featuring a wide open synth, vocal chops on the drop, and tom hits that sit in the background to give the song an even bigger feel. Wrabel‘s affectionate singing (reminiscent of Sam Smith) adds the final layer to make “Moon Rider” an ideal show-stopper, just in time for Jai Wolf’s newly announced upcoming tour.

The Cure To Loneliness tour, named after his 2019 LP, starts at Coachella (as all good things do). The first iteration of the tour last spring hit 33 towns. On the second leg, only eight shows make the list, most notably a late-May show at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater.

It’s been ten years since legendary electronic music trio The Glitch Mob released their momentous debut album Drink the Sea. The album was pivotal to the group’s rise to fame, and to celebrate its ten year anniversary, The Glitch Mob is hitting the road once again. Featuring stops in 36 different cities, the Drink The Sea X tour is sure to bring old and new fans together in celebration of the group’s breakthrough.

Drink the Sea played a monumental role in the development of Los Angeles’ now vibrant beat scene. Featuring the hugely cinematic masterpiece “Fortune Days” and the viciously dark “Animus Vox,” the album was an innovative achievement from start to finish. Now well past their critically lauded third studio album, 2018’s See Without Eyes, a celebratory look back at the group’s genesis seems like the perfect segue into what new material 2020 and beyond will bring.

Justin Bieber to break four-year hiatus with 2020 album, tour, docuseries

The Biebs is back.

After a four-year hiatus from solo productions, Justin Bieber will make his return to music with the release of “Yummy” on January 3. “Yummy” precedes Bieber’s still untitled fifth studio album. The LP will follow 2015’s Purpose. With its commercially embraced inclusions, “What Do You Mean?” and “Sorry,” Purpose further cemented Bieber into pop culture and the musical mainstream.

Entitled “#BIEBER2020,” the promotional video announcing Bieber’s album, tour, and docuseries depicts the “Baby” singer quietly and unimposingly toeing Los Angeles’ dusty landscape.

“As humans, we are all imperfect,” Bieber says. “My past, my mistakes, all the things that I’ve been through–I believe that I’m right where I’m supposed to be and God has me right where He wants me.”

Although the news of Bieber’s sonic resurrection will surprise some, for many, it is not unexpected. Bieber notably returned to stage for the first time in two years during Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival‘s second weekend of 2019 programming. Coachella headliner, Ariana Grande, brought out the Biebs to perform “Sorry,” but Bieber did more than just deliver the Skrillex-produced hit: “New album coming soon,” he told the crowd in Indio Valley.

For the most part, Bieber has been voluntarily absent from the music scene, but has nevertheless enjoyed success in recent years by lending his voice to several high-profile productions, such as the Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee-led remix of “Despacito” and “I Don’t Care,” with Ed Sheeran. Following its April 2017 release, “Despacito” became the most streamed record of all time, garnering 4.6 billion streams and subsequently displacing “Sorry,” the former title holder.

Bieber additionally made a cameo on Post Malone‘s debut album, Stoney. His vocal served as a silky complement to Malone’s angelic pipes on track three, “Deja Vu,” of the 2016 LP.

Bieber can be expected to share more details about the forthcoming album and docuseries in the near future. A complete list of tour stops is available, here.

Audien kicks off Escapism Tour at Chicago’s Concord Music Hall [Review/Photos]

Progressive house poster child, Audien‘s had this EDM game down pat for some 10 odd years now.

At just 27 years old, he’s among the most tried-and-true talent in the new wave of dance music’s ever-expanding rolodex. His most recent studio album released this year, Escapism, spanned the length of his technicolor production pedagogy. Within the LP, he by no means “reinvents the wheel” as he noted, but rather harnesses the progressive and dance pop prowess he’s been cultivating for a decade now, with some warranted experimentation to boot.

Audien’s Escapism Tour commenced at Concord Music Hall, a rather intimate venue known to invite a range of artistry in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood. The Grammy-nominated DJ filled the space, which allowed for multi-platform lower-level and balcony vantage points of Audien’s aerial cityscape visuals—which felt fitting for the tour’s Windy City debut. Attendees got, unsurprisingly, a fair diversity of music, doused in nostalgia, with Audien’s own sprawling catalog filling the lion’s share of the track list.

What he may lack in stage presence he more than accounts for in song curation. Audien played to his eager, predominately early-20-something crowd with precision. He unfurled spirited selections accessible for any fan of popular music, like his future bass Halsey remix, “Colors,” and his collaborative venture, “Something Better” with country crossover trio, Lady Antebellum.

Mixed in with the chromatic dance pop landscapes of the set were, of course, progressive gems like Eric Prydz’s “Every Day,” and even some dubstep—as he’s known to sprinkle on his sets from time to time.

Audien’s tour will run through the end of this year, wrapping things up in in Vancouver on New Year’s Day. More information and tickets to the remaining stops are available here.

Skrillex and TroyBoi are both legends in their own regards. Seeing either one of them live is always an unforgettable experience. Seeing them share the stage to perform their massive collaboration, “Warlordz,” is almost too good to be true, yet it’s exactly what lucky attendees of TroyBoi’s Los Angeles headline show experienced on Nov. 22.

On the 22nd, TroyBoi shut down Los Angeles’ famous venue The Shrine in the midst of his Nostalgia Tour. Fans were in for quite the night, with opening sets from both Argenil and Destructo, followed by TroyBoi’s signature trap sound. As the clock neared midnight, the music cut out, and TroyBoi’s friends and crew took to the stage to wish him a heartwarming happy birthday. To both the audience and TroyBoi’s surprise, Skrillex joined in on the action. As the birthday celebration drew to a close, the natural next move was to jointly perform their hit 2019 collaboration.

Moody Good heads back to Deadbeats for ‘Kush’

Moody Good heads back to Deadbeats for ‘Kush’Moody Good Press Shot

Eddie Jefferys, known now musically as Moody Good, has been disseminating his dastardly dubstep earmark for years—both on his own and formerly, as one half of the bass outfit, 16bit. Since launching his solo project, he’s released with NGHTMRE and SLANDER‘s Gud Vibrations, Skrillex‘s OWSLA imprint, and most recently, Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label.

The “Hotplate” producer’s return to Deadbeats is marked by “Kush,” an aural nod to the island-y dominion of rhythmic dub, all the while employing melodic sensibilities to its audacious approach. The track’s bass grinds alongside bubbly, video-game reminiscent synth lines pack an enticing punch for bass consumers on any side of the dubstep continuum.

Moody Good is currently executing his Sunny Side Up headlining tour. Tickets are available here.

Cashmere Cat cancels Princess Catgirl tour

Prior to its scheduled beginning, Cashmere Cat has canceled his nationwide Princess Catgirl tour. According to his tweet announcing the cancellation, problems with the live production and putting on a quality show are to blame for the cancellation. However, Cashmere Cat will still perform his scheduled New York and Los Angeles shows.

Cashmere Cat’s latest album is a bright and innovative concept album centering around the character of Princess Catgirl. The album’s roll out included videos for the tracks “For Your Eyes Only” and “Emotions,” which were each his most visually ambitious works to date. In a recent Reddit AMA, Cashmere Cat described his creation of the Princess Catgirl character:

I started having strange ideas of this character maybe 2 or 3 years ago?? it seemed so impossible and far away.. like it could never be real… but then we worked on it forever and brought her to life.. now I feel a lot more confident that I can imagine something and make it real… I think Catgirl will be part of cc forever.
