Killer Mike and El-P are back to take care of some unfinished business with the stunning Run The Jewels 2.

Dizzee Rascal Couple Of Stacks Video
Oct 31, 2014 10:28am | StereoGum

At this point we are all well aware that Dizzee Rascal puts out some hyper-stylized and weird, objectively “cool” music videos, like the one that we saw last year for “I Don’t Need A Reason.” However, his new video manages to exit the realm of the “weird and cool” and can instead be found categorized under the “supremely fucked up.” The video for “Couple Of Stacks” was directed by Emile Sornin, and is well-suited for a Halloween premiere — its content is so gory that it comes accompanied with a note of caution. Taking on exhausted horror movie tropes, Dizzee Rascal sneaks around a haunted mansion while brutally murdering its inhabitants in a variety of somewhat humorous, mostly disgusting ways. What I find to be particularly disturbing about the video is not so much the fact that these deaths are nausea-inducing (albeit slapstick), but rather, that every single person murdered in the video just so happens to be an attractive young woman. Oh, and two guys get some of their appendages chopped off. Maybe that’s just another horror movie trope that I’m looking too far into, but I doubt it. You can watch the video on Noisey.

U2s Concert Reviews: Bono Loves Future Islands, The Edge Thinks Neutral Milk Hotel Arent That Great
Oct 31, 2014 10:23am | StereoGum

It’s become so easy, of late, to think of U2 in international-corporation terms that it’s weirdly surprising to imagine them as human beings who listen to music sometimes. But in a new Rolling Stone story, both Bono and the Edge have a few words on younger bands. Bono, for instance, is all the way into Baltimore synthpop weirdos Future Islands, which means Bono has good taste: “Have you seen them? That song, ’Seasons’? A miracle, that is.” Yes, Bono! Yes, it is! I can’t wait for “The Miracle (Of Samuel T. Herring)” to open the next U2 album. Meanwhile, the Edge went to Coachella this year, and he spent enough time watching Neutral Milk Hotel to dismiss them as “strange hippie stuff.” Here’s what he says:


The BBCs rescore of Drive is the most horrifying thing youll see this Halloween
Oct 31, 2014 10:12am | Fact Magazine

The controversial rescore of Drive aired last night on BBC Three.

Masterminded by Zane Lowe, the updated version of Nicolas Winding Refn’s modern classic has been stripped of its Cliff Martinez score and After Dark-inspired synth-pop, and now features a collection of exclusive new tracks by BanksBaauerJon HopkinsSBTRKT, The 1975, Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, CHVRCHES, Eric Prydz, Foals, Laura Mvula and The Neighbourhood.

The bold idea didn’t go down too well with fans of the film when it was announced earlier this month, prompting Lowe to defend the concept as a parallel experience that you can choose to watch or not.

Decision time, then, because the movie was broadcast on BBC Three last night. Perfect timing if you’re looking for a Halloween frightfest watch if you dare on iPlayer (um, but only in the UK, of course).

Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Warg sentenced to over three years in jail
Oct 31, 2014 10:10am | Fact Magazine

The charges are for hacking, not copyright infringement.

Gottfrid Warg, the co-founder of torrent mecca The Pirate Bay, has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison for hacking into Swedish tech giant CSC. He and a co-defendant downloaded police and social security files in what prosecutors say is the “largest hacking case to date”.

The hacking incident took place in February 2012. Warg and his lawyers maintained that he didn’t steal the files, alleging that his computer had been taken over by another hacker; the judge and jury found it “unlikely” that others were involved.

Previously, Warg was arrested in Cambodia and deported to Sweden, where he served a jail term for copyright theft; he also had a two-year sentence for hacking into a bank’s computers reduced to one year. In November 2013, he was deported to Denmark to face charges in the hacking case. [via BBC]

Download Chief Keef Back From The Dead 2 & Big Gucci Sosa Mixtapes
Oct 31, 2014 9:51am | StereoGum

Chicago drill star Chief Keef isn’t going to let a little thing like being dropped from his label stop him. Today, Keef has two new mixtapes out in the world. We already knew he was readying Back From The Dead 2, the sequel to the 2012 mixtape that helped put Keef on the map. We already posted one track, the Gucci Mane collab “Paper,” but that turns out to be the only collaboration on the whole tape. Keef produced much of the tape himself, as well. But speaking of Gucci, it turns out that Keef has another mixtape out today as well: Big Gucci Sosa, a full-length collaborative tape with the incarcerated Gucci. This one is presumably all repurposed vault material, whereas Back From The Dead 2 is an all-new full-length statement. Still, two new Keef tapes! That is a bounty of material! Check out both of them below.

Video Premiere: Mode Moderne Times Up
Oct 31, 2014 9:45am | CMJ

Vancouver’s Mode Moderne dropped their album Occult Delight back in January, but they just made its cloudy post-punk cut Times Up available in single form at the start of this month. In celebration of that, we’ve got the premiere of the song’s video. It’s a lo-fi, hazy kind of thing featuring pixelated images of body builders, leather gloves with nails, burning photos of Greek figureheads, and, um, a banana. Watch it below.

New Bob Dylan Album Shadows In The Night Confirmed For 2015
Oct 31, 2014 9:32am | StereoGum

Bob Dylan has confirmed that he will release a new album next year called Shadows In The Night. There’s no details about the record yet, but it seems likely that it will be a covers album that contains his cover of Frank Sinatra’s “Full Moon And Empty Arms” that came out earlier this year. When that track was released in May, Dylan also revealed the above album artwork. The Basement Tapes boxset that will be released next week apparently has a note inside that says, “Bob Dylan, Shadows In The Night, new album coming in 2015.” Dylan’s last studio album was 2012′s Tempest.

Anderson Cooper mocks Billy Corgan for appearing on pet magazine, furniture store commercial
Oct 31, 2014 9:30am | Cosequence Of Sound

Billy Corgan has found himself entangled in countless feuds over the years, with everyone from his former Smashing Pumpkin bandmates to Courtney Love to Soundgarden. His latest beef, however, is not with a fellow musician but rather Anderson Cooper. Yes, Corgan has managed to draw the ire of CNN’s favorite black t-shirt-wearing, Vanderbilt heir of a newsman.

As Alternative Nation points out, Corgan was called out in a recent edition of “RidiCulist” on Cooper’s CNN program, Anderson Cooper 360. Specifically, Cooper threw shade at the Pumpkins frontman for appearing on a recent cover of PAWS Magazine and his involvement in a commercial for a local furniture store.

So perhaps Billy Corgan is I dont know, off his alternative rocker,” Cooper commented, “but I think maybe theres more to this, maybe hes being ironic, or maybe when the cool rock stars start doing less rock starry things, it kind of makes us face our own morality. See I want R.E.M. to stay just the way I know and love them, I dont want Everybody Hurts to suddenly be used in an Excedrin commercial. I dont ever want to see a product called Eddie Vedders Prune Jam. I want to see neither Stephen Malkmus nor Thom Yorke on the cover of AARP magazine.”

Corgan responded to Anderson on Twitter, defending his association with PAWS, while also referring to Cooper as a “globalist shill.”

Nas The Season (Prod. J Dilla)
Oct 31, 2014 9:26am | StereoGum

Nasty Nas is in your area. He’s about to cause mass hysteria. And by “mass hysteria,” I of course mean “deep and appreciative head-nodding.” Yesterday, we posted footage of Nas showing up at Run The Jewels’ record-release party and debuting his new song “The Season.” The track is out now in all its hi-fi studio-version glory, and it’s a good one. On the track, Nas raps over “Gobstopper,” the J Dilla instrumental that originally appeared on Dilla’s 2006 album Donuts. Nas projects wizened regalness all over it, and it’s just an all-around good look. Listen below.
