Daedelus touring, playing Round Robin Duets & Undead Music show with Shigeto (dates)
Apr 17, 2014 11:51am | Brooklyn Vegan

Daedelus in Austin in 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)

Instrumental hip hop/electronic production vet Daedelus has a number of dates coming up this year, including multiple US festivals like Moogfest and Hangout Fest. Just before Hangout Fest, he'll be in NYC for two appearances.

The first is part of this year's Red Bull Music Academy Night of Improvised Round Robin Duets which happens on May 14 at Town Hall, and also features fellow electronic producer Shigeto guitar greats Marc Ribot and Nels Cline, David Byrne/Amanda Palmer collaborator Jherek Bischoff, New Orleans R&B veteran Allen Toussaint, ex-P-Funk member Amp Fiddler, free jazz veteran David Murray, that dog. member Petra Haden, and more. Tickets for that show are on sale now. More info on the event, which is curated by RBMA and Undead Music, here.

The day after the Round Robin Duets show, Daedelus and Shigeto will team up once again for another Undead Music-presented show at Littefield (5/15) in Brooklyn. That show is with jazz drummer Mark Guiliana, bassist Eivind Opsvik, and cornetist/trumpeter Graham Haynes. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Meanwhile, you can also see Daedelus not far from NYC TONIGHT (4/17) at Princeton University in the college's Terrace Club. Joining him is Delaware's No Sir E.

La Sera Running Wild
Apr 17, 2014 11:50am | StereoGum

Vivian Girls breathed their last breath earlier this year, and now former Vivs bassist/vocalist Katy Goodman, once known to the world as Kickball Katy, is soldiering on with her La Sera solo project and getting ready to release the new album Hour Of The Dawn. We’ve already shared first single “Losing To The Dark,” and now Goodman has given us another one, the sprightly and welcoming “Running Wild.” It’s a fun song, and you can download it below.


Percussions Sext
Apr 17, 2014 11:49am | StereoGum

Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet aka no-really-he’s-not-Burial just blessed us with two new tracks under his Percussions alias yesterday, and now he’s given us a third. Just over an hour ago Hebden tweeted a link to “Sext,” maybe the finest of the three excursions into experimental four-on-the-floor thump. I could actually imagine provocative SMS messages sounding like this while traveling through circuits, getting ready to digitally titillate whoever’s on the other end. Listen below and be titillated yourself.


PREMIERE: DAS RADs Vacuum video gives April snow one last hurrah (sludge, too)
Apr 17, 2014 11:47am | Chart Attack

Following the annual mid-April snow day (and subsequent freakout), Toronto's weather finally seems to be settling down for the spring. We're giving winter one last hurrah with the premiere of DAS RAD's "Vacuum." Directed by Dean Tzenos of Odonis Odonis (who's almost as passionate about B-movies as he is about industrial music), the video plots the members of the Toronto sludge-pop band in the middle of a snow-covered forest. And when you look into the vacuum of their eyes, you just know something's about to go down. Something about those mutton chops...

DAD'S heavy new Radiation EP will be out this spring on Pleasence.

Listen: Chromeos new song Ezras Interlude, featuring Ezra Koenig
Apr 17, 2014 11:46am | Cosequence Of Sound

After busting a move at Coachella last weekend, Chromeo break off another piece of their forthcoming LP, White Women, with the short but sweet “Ezra’s Interlude”, featuring — you guessed it – Vampire Weekends Ezra Koenig.

Momentarily stowing away their funky dance kicks for two minutes of tenderness, the track’s a downtempo love song perfect for soundtracking a 1984 high school prom. “I just can’t pretend I’m gonna make you mine,” Koenig croons over a bed of plushy piano chords. Take a listen to the swoon-worthy track below.

(Watch: A Conversation With Chromeo)

White Women is due out May 12th via Atlantic Records. For more sounds, be sure to check out the Toro y Moi-aided Come Alive”, Sexy Socialite, “Jealous (I Ain’t with It)”, and Over Your Shoulder.

Hopscotch 2014 Lineup
Apr 17, 2014 11:40am | StereoGum

Each year, music festival Hopscotch has grown bigger and better. Spread out across various dive bars, elegant theaters, and art spaces in Raleigh, NC, you can find whatever you want among the well-curated blend of hip-hop, rock, metal, and experimental music. They’ve just announced the lineup for the 2014 festival, which will be held from 9/4 – 9/6. This year’s biggest acts are Spoon, Mastodon, St. Vincent, and Sun Kil Moon, but look a little lower on the bill and there’s just as exciting stuff.


Raekwon says RZA has compromised Wu-Tang Clan with mediocre shit
Apr 17, 2014 11:39am | Cosequence Of Sound

RZA and Raekwon have been publicly feuding for months over the direction of Wu-Tang Clan’s 20th anniversary album, A Better Tomorrow, and it appears the two rappers are no closer to settling their differences. In a biting new interview with Rolling Stone, Raekwon said Wu-Tang has been “compromised” by RZA’s creative vision, which he referred to as “mediocre” and out of touch with the state of current hip-hop.

“RZAs the type of dude where, in the 90s, he ruled,” Raekwon told Rolling Stone. “Now its a new day. Youre not attached no more. Its like being a coach and you won rings back in the day, but now your team is in ninth place. Its time for a new fucking game plan. I sit here with integrity all the time. When it comes to my music. When it comes to my business. When it comes to the fans. Im always going to give them the best of me. And I know the Wu-Tang Clan is built like that, but if theyre sitting there listening to one man, aint no “I” in “Team.”

Raekwon specifically singled out the album’s lead single, “Keep Watch”, which he referred to as “mediocre shit.” He said, “I hate it. I hate it. I dont hate shit, but I hate that fuckin record. It aint the gunpowder that my brother is spitting; its the production. And I aint shitting on the producer because hes one of our soldiers. But if it aint where it need...

Major Lazer Aerosol Can (Feat. Pharrell) Video
Apr 17, 2014 11:34am | StereoGum

Pharrell is still having a moment. And while his mug (and his hat) seems to be everywhere these days, in Major Lazer’s new video for “Aerosol Can” we hear Pharrell, but instead of seeing his age-defying face, we get to watch graffiti and tattoo legend Mike Giant tag up a white room with Pharrell’s lyrics.


Chromeo Ezras Interlude (Feat. Ezra Koenig)
Apr 17, 2014 11:31am | StereoGum

One of my revelations during Coachella’s first weekend was that Chromeo has become a really big deal, in part because the duo’s eternally throwback electrofunk evokes many of the same sensations as the EDM festival-killers who now rule the summer. They’re masters of putting a smile on the faces of everyone around, themselves included, and despite their kitschy inclinations they’re absolutely serious about their craft. In a show of strength and versatility, this latest preview of Chromeo’s upcoming White Women leaves the sense of humor behind in favor of muted melancholia. Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig duets with Chromeo singer David Macklovitch on “Ezra’s Interlude,” a piano ballad gone digital that wouldn’t have sounded all that out of place amidst the synthetic wonders of Modern Vampires Of The City. Listen below.


Brainfeeders Matthewdavid announces In My World LP, shares warped title track
Apr 17, 2014 11:30am | Fact Magazine

In My World, shares warped title track" width="685" height="685" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-211161" />

The Los Angeles producer pushes his voice to the front of the stage on his latest album.

Brainfeeder beatmaker and Leaving Records boss Matthewdavid will return this summer with a follow-up to 2011′s Outmind. While the largely ambient Outmind could be described as “one long, broken jam”, In My World focuses on the producer’s vocals as he expands his sonic palette.

Press materials promise “ethereal love jams” and “IDM breakbeats,” and “a unifying theme of love” the latter understandable, considering the producer’s recent marriage and the birth of his first child.

Listen to the title track below: a dubbed-out, tape-melted R&B ballad that flashes both loverman cooing and silver-tongued rapping. In My World is due out on June 30/July 1 via Brainfeeder.

Cut Copy Like Any Other Day
Apr 17, 2014 11:27am | StereoGum

Cut Copy gave us the deeply likable dance-rock odyssey Free Your Mind last year, and they’ll follow it up this Saturday with a new Record Store Day 10″ single that features two new songs. We’ve already heard one of those songs, the twinkly but bottom-heavy “In These Arms Of Love.” And now they’ve shared the B-side, “Like Any Other Day.” The song is not really like any other Cut Copy song; it’s built on an acoustic strum, and it’s full of blown-out psychedelic effects; you could almost call it the group’s take on the old Mercury Rev sound. Listen to it below.


Watch Eagulls Play Jools Holland
Apr 17, 2014 11:26am | StereoGum

One of the best songs off Eagulls’ very nice self-titled debut was the shoegaze punk of “Possessed.” The band stopped by Jools Holland to perform it this week, and now the video is available online. Watch it below.


Matthewdavid In My World
Apr 17, 2014 11:19am | StereoGum

The just-released title track off Matthewdavid’s upcoming In My World begins appropriately with disorienting vinyl scratches. It quickly falls into a smooth soul groove, but always stays slightly off. The hazy R&B definitely sounds off-balance, but that’s the state in which the producer sounds his strongest. Listen to it below.
