Comic-Con: MGMT, Grimes to Perform on an Aircraft Carrier


MGMT and Grimes are heading to San Diego's 2014 Comic-Con International, where MGMT will play a live set and Grimes will DJ at a party for CraveOnline on July 25. The event will take place aboard the USS Midway, an aircraft carrier docked adjacent to the Convention Center, and appropriately enough TNT's "The Last Ship" will sponsor.
 
Though Comic-Con has primarily been a destination for movie studios and TV networks to hype their latest franchises in recent years, it's become a rising priority for the music industry to capitalize on all the fan activity. Metallica played a surprise show last year in support of their pseudo-documentary "Metallica Through The Never," while VH1 Classic recruited Rob Zombie to play the first-ever Opening Party in 2012. Also on tap for Comic-Con 2014 are G-Eazy and Linkin Park, who will perform at MTV's Fan Fest on Thursday, July 24.
 
The CraveOnline event is produced and booked by Mirrored Media, an L.A.-based music marketing company that has previously paired Metric with Acura for a fall 2012 tour and mobile-charging brand Mophie with key festivals like Life Is Beautiful, Coachella and Lollapalooza.
 
MGMT are touring in support of their third album, "MGMT," which was released last September. Grimes has started teasing new material for her upcoming second album, including the single "Go," which was originally intended for Rihanna.

Tame Impala & Pond’s Managers Launch New Record Label

The global success of popular psych-rock exports Tame Impala and Pond has already managed to put Perth on the map (just ask NME), and now the bands’ Fremantle-based management company is set to expand on the worldwide attention with the launch of their very own independent record label.

As previously reported, the major label deal has “a structure and reach” far bigger than Spinning Top’s own, according to the company’s doyen Jodie Regan, but will retain their proudly independent working methods.

Chiefly by owning and controlling Spinning Top Records and using Warner’s powerful distribution channels to “make our music available globally,” adds Regan, “which is important given how widely and carefully we’ve built our footprint, and how lovingly we care for our fans. ”

Kick-starting the new venture will be the re-release of an album that’s as “rare as hen’s teeth” from a band that’s a Tame Impala/Pond prototype: Mink Mussel Creek.

First formed in 2007 and having featured an on/off roster of musos since, Mink Mussel Creek’s 2011 album Mink Mussel Manticore (previously available only on USB at selected gigs) features Tame Impala linchpin Kevin Parker (on drums), Pond members Nicholas Allbrook and Shiny Joe Ryan (on vocals and guitar respectively), plus bassist Steve Summerlin and synth-tinkler Richard Ingham. 

“Perth may be the most geographically remote city in some ways, but Spinning Top can bring the world to us.”
The album’s ultra-rare status changes with Spinning Top Records’ digital re-release of Mink Mussel Manticore on Friday 16th May, followed by a double vinyl release in June. A free download of 13-minute Mink Mussel Creek taster ‘They Dated Steadily’ will precede the reissue (available now online here) and is the first in a series of free digital giveaways each week in May that will herald each Spinning Top release, “to allow fans to ‘taste the rainbow’.”

The rest of that musical spectrum includes the upcoming solo albums from Gum and Shiny Joe Ryan (in June on digital and vinyl) followed by new releases from Nicholas Allbrook, his Allbrook/Avery side-project (with The Growl/Tame Impala’s Cameron Avery) – hopefully including the album they made with four-fifths of The Horrors  – plus songsmith Felicity Groom, guitarist Peter Bibby, and more.

“There is a huge amount of important music in our self-contained world and, although Tame Impala and Pond have benefitted from conventional labels, we have got a little frustrated with the rather tired strictures of the corporate world,” says Jodie Regan of the new label’s conception.

“Perth may be the most geographically remote city in some ways, but Spinning Top can bring the world to us,” she adds. “The new label will do this and let fans decide what they love and when they love it. We love that we are free to do whatever releases we fancy, and that [Warner's] ADA structure will allow us that independence.”

In related news, there’s more even more new music from the Spinning Top family on the horizon. Pond already have the follow-up to last year’s Modular Records-released Hobo Rocket in the can, with the cheekily titled Man It Feels Like Space Again set to drop soon, while Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker has confirmed he’s been busy working on new material for the sequel to Tame Impala’s award-scooping, Grammy-nominated Lonerism - using pizza analogies for the sound of the new songs which make their second album “sound like amateur hour,” in Parkers’ words.

The prolific 27-year-old has also been dallying with his psych-funk side-project AAA Aaardvrk Getdown Services, a vehicle for “all these disco, Michael Jackson megahits that he wouldn’t use for Tame because he’d be too sheepish about it,” according to bandmate Jay Watson. Parker also showed his “next-level Thriller-pop” credentials by recording a cover of MJ’s ‘Stranger In Moscow‘.

Disclaimer:  Yes, this is my video however, even if it was just a "find," I would post it here.  I'm not trying to promote my video, I just feel that this is newsy enough to warrant a thread in the MGMT section.  That being said, there is a great thread for live videos in the Show section.  Just trying to avoid a clusterfuck in this section  :-* :-* :-*
