The Fader Premieres New Shintaro Sakamoto Video -- Album out September 16


The Fader has just premiered the video for "Birth of the Super Cult," the first single off Let's Dance Raw, Shintaro Sakamoto's follow-up to his 2012 solo debut, How to Live with a Phantom. As expected coming from the singer/guitarist of the now-defunct Japanese phenom Yura Yura Teikoku, it's a wonderfully bizarre, trippy clip which finds a languid Sakamoto seated with a lap steel guitar and duetting with a ventriloquist’s dummy. The Fader writes, "I could watch the clip, and his hair, forever." We concur. Let's Dance Raw will be released in North America on September 16 (September 15 in the UK and EU) and you can pre-order the CD and LP here

Stereogum Premieres Invisible Familiar's "Clever Devil"


Invisible Familiars will be releasing the "Clever Devil" b/w "Digger's Invitation" 7" single on June 24 via Other Music Recording Co. before a full-length album due this fall. Stereogum has just premiered the A-Side, describing the song as "like T. Rex in a funhouse of horrors." The band will be celebrating its release on Saturday, July 5, in Brooklyn at Baby's All Right.

Invisible Familiars is led by Jared Samuel, a New York City-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has long made his living playing music, supporting a variety of NYC artists (most recently The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger and Cibo Matto). His talent, however, extends far beyond his work as a sideman, and when the time came for him to make an album of his own, he enlisted producer Michael Leonhart (Steely Dan/Yoko Ono), along with a group of friends and notable guest musicians, to bring his own music to full fruition.

"Clever Devil" is all at once snaky and vivid, with singer/songwriter Jared Samuel's acoustic guitar and mysterious, breathy melodies accented by little bursts of electronics and a guest spot from Stuart Bogie (Antibalas) on saxophone. 
The song provides a sneak-peek into the world of an extremely gifted musician, just starting to come into his own as a songwriter, armed with a kaleidoscopic vision, and a deft touch. Details on Invisible Familiars' debut album will be announced in the coming weeks, along with additional tour dates.

Mutual Benefit Video Premiere + Summer Tour Dates Announced


Jordan Lee's Mutual Benefit has just debuted a new video for "'Let's Play' / Statue of a Man" via The Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy blog. Directed by Stefan Grabrowski, the video was shot over the span of 6 months in and around Boston using mostly analog equipment and some experimental developing techniques. The resulting images have a frenetic, but also organic quality to them evoking the very personal and soul-searching nature of the song. As described by Jordan, " I think Stefan really captured the spirit of the song by finding the beauty of rusted train tracks and flooded ponds and mashing it all together into a colorful mess." Watch the video below and catch Mutual Benefit throughout the UK and North America this summer. They'll be touring the Northeast with Wild Beasts and playing a bunch of festivals, including the Pitchfork Music Festival, NXNE, Hopscotch, Pygmalion, Way Out West, Green Man, amongst others -- full listing of dates below the video. (Video should only be streamed at 1080p high definition.)
