Middle-aged men in Grinderman announce new album and European tour, finally talk openly with their doctors about their erectile dysfunction

Middle-aged men in Grinderman announce new album and European tour, finally talk openly with their doctors about their erectile dysfunction http://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/news-10-05-grinderman.jpg

Everyone’s favorite raving lunatic Nick Cave is back! Cave’s career-jolting, psycho-sex beatnik blues project Grinderman will release their new studio album of pyscho-sex beatnik blues, Grinderman 2 via pyscho-sex beatnik blues label Mute on September 13 in beatnik-blusey Europe (and via psycho-sex beatnik blues label ANTI- on September 14 in the pyscho-sexy United States)

Grinderman 2 was recorded in 2009 at London’s RAK, State of The Ark, and Assault and Battery studios. It was co-produced by Grinderman and Nick Launay and mixed by Launay at London’s British Grove in August 2009 and LA’s Seedy Underbelly in April 2010. There’s also a pretty, um, ferocious teaser video for the album playing now at the band’s website. And to celebrate their triumphant return to the throne of The Kingdom of Old Dudes Who Still Write Seriously Fucked-up and Cool Rock Records, Cave and co. are going on a 20-date European bender starting September 25 (which gives them each plenty of lead time to talk to their doctors about their overactive bladders).

Lou Barlow goes on tour, keeps living the dream

Lou Barlow hates free time. At least, I assume he must. Dinosaur Jr. have been putting out records and touring on a pretty regular basis; Sebadoh’s reunion tour has gone plural multiple times by now; and Barlow even found some time to release Goodnight Unknown, a new solo record, last year (TMT Review). A lesser man might take 2010 off to relax, but Barlow’s not a lesser man. Instead, Lou’s taking his capitalization-impaired backing band the missingmen on the road for their first headlining tour since Goodnight Unknown came out. Keep living the dream, Lou — just, you know, get some sleep, too.

Lou Barlow + the missingmen dates:

06.10.10 - San Diego, CA - The Casbah
06.11.10 - Tucson, AZ - Plush
06.12.10 - Santa Fe, NM - Santa Fe Brewing Co.
06.14.10 - Austin, TX - Mohawk
06.15.10 - Dallas, TX - The Loft
06.16.10 - Norman, OK - Opolis
06.17.10 - Kansas City, MO - Record Bar
06.18.10 - Denver, CO - Larimer Lounge
06.19.10 - Salt Lake City, UT - Urban Lounge
06.21.10 - Seattle, WA - Tractor Tavern
06.22.10 - Vancouver, BC - Media Club
06.23.10 - Portland, OR - Doug Fir Lounge
06.25.10 - San Francisco, CA - Cafe Du Nord
06.26.10 - Los Angeles, CA - Bootleg Theater

Superchunk announce fall tourdates! Supernice!!!

Ah, superlatives. Where would we be without them? How could I convince my girlfriend that I refuse to apply for jobs because I know that I’m destined to be the most important songwriter of the 21st century? And how would my annoying friends ever qualify LOST as the “best show ever” on Facebook every 18 seconds? How the heck would my mom try to convince me for the millionth time that Catholicism is the ONE TRUE FAITH? I don’t mind telling you that it’d be hard. Damn hard.

And hey, what about Superchunk? They might be the most superlative indie rock band there is right now: the “most indie” band on the “coolest” label with the “best” use of “super-” in its name. I mean, without superlatives at their disposal, the name of their band would be “Chunk.” And who the hell would care that fucking Chunk have festival dates planned this summer followed by East Coast dates in September to support their long-anticipated new album Majesty Shredding (their first studio full-length since 2001’s Here’s to Shutting Up)?? I submit to you that no one would.

Don’t believe me? Well, fine. Here’s a list of CHUNK tourdates. Have fun being the only one there, man. The rest of us will be at the Supertramp show rocking out to/empathizing with the protagonist in “Goodbye, Stranger.”

06.19.10 - Denver, CO - Westword Music Festival
06.20.10 - Chicago, IL - Taste of Randolph Street Festival
07.24.10 - Omaha, NE - MAHA Music Festival
09.17.10 - Washington, DC - 930 Club
09.18.10 - New York, NY - Bowery Ballroom
09.19.10 - Brooklyn, NY - Music Hall of Williamsburg
09.21.10 - Boston, MA - Royale
09.22.10 - Philadelphia, PA - Trocadero

Grizzly Bear flesh out tour, including US shows, because there are a couple of folks in the US who want to see them

Did you know that Grizzly Bear are extremely popular? It’s true. Last year, the Brooklyn group released Veckatimest (TMT Review), which sold a whole ton of copies, ended up on about every major publication’s year-end list, and gave thousands of college freshmen new ringtones in the form of “Two Weeks.” Basically, Grizzly Bear are all sorts of popular now. So, what do you do when you’re all sorts of popular? If you’re smart, you go on tour and enjoy that string of almost-certainly sold-out shows. If you’re really smart, you add some US dates to that tour. Grizzly Bear are really smart.
