LONDON GRAMMAR tapped for J’Adore Dior global campaign spot!

It always pleases me when artists I love achieve recognition on a global scale…it’s the reason I’m a music journalist, to help that happen.  I’ve been a huge London Grammar fan for some time now and their album, If You Wait, is one of my favorite releases from the last year.  The use of the opening track from that album, “Hey Now,” is put to use immaculately in the new Dior campaign for J’Adore Dior, starring Charlize Theron.  You can watch the spot above and for god’s sake, check out the album via this link on iTunes…you won’t regret it.  I wish I could tell you about a tour date in Chicago, but sadly there isn’t one.  If you want to drive to Indianapolis to see them (and take me with!), they’ll be performing at Deluxe at Old National Centre - tickets available here. -NMJ

FREAKY DEAKY: NERVO, KILL THE NOISE, & PEGBOARD NERDS @ Aragon on November 1st!

Chicago, are you prepared to get freaky??  The lovely folks at React Presents are bringing Nervo, Kill The Noise, and Pegboard Nerds to the Aragon Ballroom on November 1st!  I’m personally a huge fan of this entire lineup but especially Kill the Noise and Pegboard Nerds.  

It’s actually slightly astonishing that Pegboard Nerds are at the bottom of the lineup considering how much steam they’ve picked up in the last year.  Their remixes for Krewella’s "Alive" and "Live For the Night" managed to slightly outdo their original counterparts while their own original cuts like "Here It Comes" (recently dropped by Downlink in his set at Sound-Bar) and "Razor Sharp" (I prefer the VIP mix to the original) are among some of the most intelligent electronic music I’ve heard in some time.  They’re undoubtedly the golden child of Monstercat Records and are well on their way to becoming a household name.

Kill the Noise, meanwhile, is way up there on my personal list of favorite bass mechanics.  He has a sound all his own and after seeing him at the first Spring Awakening Festival a few years ago, I can personally attest to how tight his live sets are.  He’s on a level of his own and although he’s been quiet as far as releasing any new tunes, it doesn’t make it any less mind blowing to hear his stuff through a huge soundsystem.

NERVO, of course, are among the elite of what we know as “EDM” - these ladies are at the top of their game.  They churn out hit after hit after hit and are showing no signs of slowing down.  They’ve slayed crowds at all the major festivals and are now descending upon Chicago to make us all dance our asses off.  Check out their latest massive hit ripped from their Tomorrowland 2014 set, "Rise Early Morning."

You can buy tickets for this killer lineup right here - but don’t wait until this last minute, this WILL sell out!  Stay tuned for more updates and we’ll see you at the show! -NMJ

New Track “Trainwreck” || Sophomore Album Drops 9.09.2014

It’s been 10 painful years since ‘You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine’ first graced your earholes and created a musical gap that no one else could fill. Finally, DFA1979 has prepared another hit to sate your head, and a whole bushel is just around the corner! See: 'The Physical World'

To see them live, simply appear at The Riviera Theater on November 25th, 2014, even if it is just to see if Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler really do have elephant trunks.

Monday Motivation || Have a Wallpaper, you Awesome Human!
That’s a right-click and save. It may not fit your monitor (unless you turn it on its side), but it’s better than that hokey “80% of success is just showing up” ‘I’m OK you’re OK and Woody Allen is OK too’ bullshit. This is get-off your ass material for a Monday, not a massage.

Don’t miss THE CURE @ Riot Fest 2014 in Humboldt Park!

Get your happy-goth on and go see my personal favorite band, The Cure, at Riot Fest!  The fest is stretching across the September 12-14 weekend and will call Humboldt Park home once again.  This is one of the most entertaining, welcoming, and diverse festivals I’ve ever attended and it only gets better and better with every year.  With The Cure headlining, you’re already guaranteed your money’s worth.  BottleRock Festival in Napa Valley had to pull the plug on The Cure’s set this summer for overstaying their welcome a bit.  Having seen them twice, I can say in full confidence that if you’re a fan of The Cure, you’ll leave happy no matter what era of the legendary band you prefer.

Among the massive lineup for the weekend are Slayer, Failure (who we recently covered at the Metro), The Dandy Warhols, Mastodon, Cheap Trick, Patti Smith(!), and so many others.  You can check the full lineup here and buy tickets in various increments here.  Don’t miss out on this spectacular weekend…after a lackluster Lollapalooza lineup, Riot Fest is here to pick up the slack! -NMJ
