Watch LCD Soundsystem Cover Spacemen 3 & Joy Division At Their First Show In Three Years

A little while ago, LCD Soundsystem announced plans to play a 20-show residency at Brooklyn Steel — not a small venue by most standards, but a small one by theirs. The first of those Brooklyn Steel shows went down last night, shortly after keyboardist Gavilán Rayna Russom announced that she was leaving the band amicably. The band didn’t play any new songs last night, but they did bust out a few tracks they haven’t played in a while and a couple of covers, including one that they’ve never done be...

New Order’s 30 greatest tracks – ranked!

With the 40th anniversary of their debut single approaching, we rate the band who blend dance and rock like no otherYou can see why Movement is viewed less as New Order’s debut album than a footnote to Joy Division’s career – that is really what it is – but that doesn’t mean it is not good. The surges of The Him would have made a great Joy Division track; the lyrics, which attempt to understand the death in 1980 of Ian Curtis, Joy Division’s frontman, are powerful and heartbreaking.

Susanna – “The Vampire”

Norwegian balladeer Susanna Wallumrød specializes in melodrama hewn from folk and classical traditions, like Nico making an especially baroque form of chamber pop.

Joy Division: all of their songs, ranked!

It’s 40 years since the release of their final album, Closer. From flexidiscs to French magazine giveaways, which tracks match up to the Manchester band’s beautiful, brutal best? Failures has a very Joy Division title, but the sound is sub-Raw Power-era Stooges. Meanwhile, the fact that Ian Curtis sounds about 13 years old underlines the slightly amateur air. With the best will in the world, you would have needed powers of clairvoyance to work out that its authors would turn out to be epochal. C...

Reissue Review: Your Food, “Poke It With a Stick”

This Friday belongs to Your Food. The Louisville post-punk quartet – whose only LP, 1983’s Poke It With A Stick, is getting the reissue treatment at the end of this work-week care of Drag City – was key in its all-too-short tenure to the region’s indispensable wave of punk and post-rock in the 80s and 90s, definitely as influential on the scene as Maurice, which also has been resurrected on YouTube in these Slint AD days. The Drag City LP, in fact, is getting the re-press thanks to post-rock for...

Stream Chain Cult Demo 2018

Chain Cult, a new trio from the ancient Greek city of Athens, have an interesting take on postpunk. Their music churns and broods like prime Joy Division, and its murmuring bass and flinty guitar are pretty much exactly what comes to mind when you hear the term "postpunk." But Chain Cult play fast, and their … More »

An Animated History of Goth

"Is your teen gothic?" Don’t laugh, it’s a serious question. If your teen is a goth, there are a few paths available to you, and not all of them good. Let’s consider some, shall we? You might, in the course of some research, come across a resource called the Parents Universal Resource Experts—or P.U.R.E.—which is not a parody Evangelical band invented by DEVO. You will learn things like “the predominant color of gothic clothing is black” and “the gothic attitude is one of sadness and dep...

Formed in 1978, in the first blast of Texas punk, Terminal Mind sounds remarkably fresh and prescient today, more than three decades since the group splintered in the heat of the Lone Star sun. In its short, happy life, Terminal Mind recorded a series of catchy but aggressive songs that earned the group opening slots with Iggy Pop and drew comparisons to John Cale, Wire and Pere Ubu.
