Video Session : Bob Log III at Sun King Brewery
Dec 17, 2014 10:23am | My Old Kentucky Blog

MOKB Presents teamed up with our best buds at Sun King Brewery to bring in Bob Log III, before his show at The HI-FI, to give us an impromptu balloon-poppin’, beer-guzzlin’ private session.

Madonnas Entire New Album Reportedly Leaks Before It Was Even Announced
Dec 17, 2014 10:11am | StereoGum

Madonna’s reportedly been working on a new album for a while now, but she hasn’t even announced the album yet. It was probably going to come out next year. But now, who knows. 13 brand-new Madonna songs — possibly the entire finished new album — leaked to the internet this morning, as Oh No They Didn’t points out. Madonna recorded the tracks with Diplo, Avicii, Natalia Kills, and Ryan Tedder. Rumor has it that the album is called either Unapologetic Bitch (awesome title) or Iconic (less so). (That’s presumably a fan-created cover up there.) The album, or whatever it is, has one song called “Unapologetic Bitch” and another called “Bitch I’m Madonna.” It’ll be interesting to see how Madonna handles this — whether she retools the album or bumps up the release or ignores it entirely. But it’s out there now. Ask Sony Pictures about that: There’s nothing you can do about that now.

Watch: Laura Marling Short Movie Video
Dec 17, 2014 10:10am | CMJ

It’s been over a year since soft-spoken folk musician Laura Marling dropped her excellent album Once I Was An Eagle, but today we’ve got news of a new one coming early next year. The album, Short Movie, won’t be out until March, but its title track is here, accompanied by a simple Art & Graft-directed video. As a horse gallops across dreamy southwestern landscapes, the track billows and blossoms into a lovely, shadowy pop song. Watch the video for Short Movie below and check out the album tracklist after that.

Tracklist For Short Movie:
01. Warrior
02. False Hope

Justin Vernon Officially Announces His Eaux Claires Music Festival
Dec 17, 2014 10:09am | StereoGum

A few months back, it was rumored that Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon was bringing a music festival to his hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Vernon has officially announced the festival today, which will be co-curated by the National’s Aaron Dessner. Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival will take place next year on July 17-18. The lineup will be announced in early 2015. A limited amount of presale tickets will be available tomorrow starting at noon CST. Here are some words from Vernon and Dessner on putting together the festival:

Tiny Mix Tapes posted their Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2014, and as TMT lists usually are, it's a pretty eccentric one with a lot of stuff that wasn't making everyone's list this year. Sure you've got Grouper, Andy Stott, Sun Kil Moon, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, Arca, Pharmakon, Perfume Genius, Ariel Pink, Swans and FKA twigs, but you've also got Ninos Du Brasil, Gem Jones, James Ferraro, Call Super, C L E A N E R S, Kevin Drumm & Jason Lescalleet and more.

Petite Noir Till We Ghosts (Feat. Yasiin Bey)
Dec 17, 2014 10:02am | StereoGum

Petite Noir’s King Of Anxiety EP already gave us one splendid single in “Chess.” Now here’s another excellent track from Cape Town “noirwave” king Yannick Ilunga with an assist from Yasiin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def. “Till We Ghosts” actually premiered two years ago in a different form, but this new version with Bey is as fresh as can be. It’s one of those songs that could have been utterly corny, with Bey rapping over what amounts to driving rock music with an ethereal touch. Instead, this particular rap/rock hybrid turns out to be as electrifying as Yeezus, but with the elegant poise of peak TV On The Radio. Run The Jewels’ collaboration with Until The Ribbon Breaks comes to mind as well, though this trades out sharp-edged aggression for a dreamier kind of forward motion. Listen below.

Protomartyr tell us about 10 movies they saw on tour this year, part of new flexi series w/ Cloud Nothings, Wye Oak & more
Dec 17, 2014 9:45am | Brooklyn Vegan

Protomartyr's second album, Under Color of Official Right, is one of the year's most acclaimed albums, matching witty if bleak observations to snarling postpunk backing. The band spent most of the year on the road, out on tours with Spray Paint, Whatever Brains and Parquet Courts, making space for both SXSW, CMJ and one of DbA's final shows, too. Which leads to Protomartyr's Top 10 of 2014 list they sent us, which could have only been sent by them. Here's the setup:

As is often the case with touring, all you have is time and it must be killed. Going to see a movie, any movie, is our default band activity. We go to the theater and whatever is showing next is what we see. We'd like to think this is the reason why we saw so much shit, but honestly, seeing something awful became an addiction. Other than that, the only criteria was that the theater had to sell booze. That became an addiction as well.
You won't find Boyhood or Birdman or Grand Budapest Hotel on this list, but it's a funny read and works as a travelogue as well. Protomartyr's "Ten Movies We Saw This Year" are listed with commentary below.

In other news, Protomartyr are part of a Joyful Noise Recordings' new subscription record club, the 2015 Flexidisc Series where "some of our favorite artists to release never-before-heard recordings on a fleeting analog format." Other artists contributing to the...

Future Brown Vernáculo (Feat. Maluca) Video
Dec 17, 2014 9:44am | StereoGum

Future Brown have followed up their magnificent “Talkin Bandz” with “Vernáculo,” another track from their recently announced debut album. The song is another genre-bending take from the production enclave and features NYC-based singer Maluca. It’s accompanied by a video that premiered at Art Basel earlier this month that serves as an indictment of the beauty industry. “Appropriating the advertising language of global beauty brands like LOreal and Revlon, ’Vernaculo’ is an exercise in capitalist surrealism,” the Perez Art Museum Miami explains. You can watch the video over on their website.


Laura Jane Grace Reviews 2014: The Against Me! Leader On Transitioning In Public, Getting To Know Her Fans, And Seeing A Ghost
Dec 17, 2014 9:44am | StereoGum

Since coming out as transgender in 2012, Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace has been living in a kind of whirlwind, having not only spent the past two years navigating her new identity under the watchful gaze of the public, but also touring nonstop in support of one of the year’s best albums Transgender Dysphoria Blues, AND — if that weren’t enough — filming a web series, True Trans, that explores Grace’s own personal journey and helps illuminate the transgender experience. While all of this might be enough to leave most people feeling physically and emotionally exhausted, Grace seems to have happily taken it all in stride. I called her up to chat about the highs and lows of 2014, the making of True Trans, and what people can expect next from her band.

Flying Lotus, Kaytranada and Jon Hopkins join Radio 1s Residency
Dec 17, 2014 9:37am | Fact Magazine

Hannah Wants, George FitzGerald and Solomun complete the diverse line-up.

BBC Radio 1s Residency kicks off again on January 8 with a cast of DJs and producers bringing us their pick of goodies from all corners of the electronic milieu. This time round the show, which airs on Radio 1 in two slots on Thursday nights from 10pm to 1am, will see Brainfeeder boss Flying Lotus paired with Montreal hot property and XL signee Kaytranada.

“I still can’t believe this is about to happen,” said FlyLo of his appointment. “It’ll be a pleasure to invade the UK airwaves for the months ahead.”

Kaytranada commented: “During my high school days, I used to listen to my favourite DJs mixes on BBC and now, here I am. Damn. Im going to play the best music for yall.”

Immunity producer Jon Hopkins is packaged alongside house don George FitzGerald, who returns to the Residency after a stint in 2014. Skream is also back and paired with Hannah Wants, while Heidi makes another Residency appearance alongside Solomun.

The outgoing DJs are Moxie, Sohn, Jackmaster, Martin Garrix, Steve Angello and, sadly, James Blake, who’s provided us with plenty of entertainment during his Residency.

Screaming Females Ripe Live Video (Dir. Lance Bangs) (Stereogum Premiere)
Dec 17, 2014 9:26am | StereoGum

New Jersey punks Screaming Females will unleash Rose Mountain early next year, a record that’s bound to be a total shit-kicker. We’ve already heard the single “Ripe,” and today the band shared a live performance of the song. Lance Bangs has directed an impressive roster of videos, the most recent of which was for Kim Deal’s new track “Biker Gone,” and he helmed the forthcoming Slint documentary Breadcrumb Trail. This is a high-contrast, stark video — the carefully coordinated cinematography rubs up against Screaming Females’ purposefully raw sound. Although the audio was professionally recorded, the band chose to not overdub it, maintaining some auditory semblance to a live performance. Maybe it always looks this way, but Marissa Paternoster’s guitar appears to be speckled with blood as she tears through the song’s absurdly awesome inaugural riff. Watch below.


Olof Arnalds released 'Palme,' opening for Jose Gonzalez on 2015 tour (updated dates & LP stream)
Dec 17, 2014 9:16am | Brooklyn Vegan

As discussed, Jose Gonzalez is going on a 2015 tour, and since we last spoke it's been announced that Icelandic folk singer Ólöf Arnalds will be opening on both European and North American dates. That includes the NYC show happening April 10 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that one are on sale now. Full list of tour dates below.

Olof's newest album, Palme, was recorded with longtime collaborator Skúli Sverrisson and múm's Gunnar Örn Tynes, and it came out earlier this fall via One Little Indian. You can stream that in full below, via The Line of Best Fit, and also head to that link to read Olof's own track-by-track thoughts on the record.

Jose Gonzalez's new album, Vestiges & Claws, will be out next year. It's his first solo album since 2007, but he did contribute music under his own name and with his band Junip to last year's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty soundtrack (which also features Arcade Fire and other bands). You can stream "Step Out" from that soundtrack, with the Olof LP stream and list of dates, below.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon nerd out and sing Third Eye Blinds Jumper watch
Dec 17, 2014 9:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

On last night’s episode of The Tonight Show, Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon teamed up for the latest in a series of reoccurring sketches about two geeky best friends’ summer at Camp Winnipesaukee. Heavy on the ’90s nostalgia, li’l Justin and Jimmy are obsessed with Pop Rocks, Full House, and Third Eye Blind. (So, yes, essentially me in 1998).

Much to the dismay of their stuffy camp counselor (it’s light’s out, after all!), they can’t help but stay up all night, hopped up sugar, singing 3EB’s “Jumper” at the top of their lungs. They nail the a cappella cover like any 12-year-old would awkwardly and without a damn care in the world which is no small feat considering those thick-as-hell braces. Watch the sketch below.

This Third Eye Blind cover comes just a week after Timberlake tackled a different ’90s hit, Garth Brooks’ “Friends In Low Places”.
