Jonny Greenwood recording new album in India
Feb 26, 2015 4:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In an interview with The Sunday Guardian, Jonny Greenwood revealed that he’s currently holed up in a fort in India recording with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and a dozen local artists.
“We’ve been living here for nearly three weeks and recording an album here, in the [Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur],” the Radiohead guitarist said. “The Maharaja allowed us use of the fort, and we’ve basically been living here with 12 Indian musicians and we’ve made a record.” Greenwood had just performed with the troupe at the World Sacred Spirit Festival, where they tested the material live before heading to the Fort studio to record a mix of “Arabic, Indian and western music.”
“It’s been amazing, actually, working with Indian musicians,” Greenwood adding, saying the local culture makes music a part of life “rather than just being an occupation. It’s different; there’s music everywhere. Like when we’re playing and recording or rehearsing with these musicians, when they take a break, they go and play more. That’s not true in England.” He went on to say that watching the musicians work has been particularly inspiring. “Some of the musicians are so young, it’s great. One of the dholak players, he’s 16, and I just sit and watch him play and learn so much from how he thinks about musi...

Radiohead have been in and out of the studio since last fall. Presumably they’re working on their next album, but word has been mum about what exactly is going on. Jonny Greenwood broke that silence today, though, with an interview in Indian newspaper The Sunday Guardian. Here’s what Greenwood had to say about Radiohead’s progress: […]
Will Butler Madonna Cant Save Me Now
Feb 26, 2015 4:50pm | StereoGum
Will Butler’s song-a-day project for The Guardian marches on. So far, he’s taken inspiration from newspaper articles about the Greek debt criss, the Soviet Union, and water scarcity in Brazil. Today’s track is called “Madonna Can’t Save Me Now,” and it’s about the scientific discovery of a black hole that’s 12 billion times bigger than […]
Will Butler premieres new song Madonna Cant Save Me Now listen
Feb 26, 2015 4:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Arcade Fires Will Butler planned on writing a new track about the BRIT Awards for the latest installment of his song-a-day project with The Guardian. However, something actually more pressing loomed larger than the awards ceremony that gave us Kanye’s “All Day” and Madonna’s infamous spill: the discovery of a black hole 12 billion times larger than the sun and nearly as old as the universe.
“Im not terrified were going to get sucked into a black hole,” Butler wrote of the epic scientific finding. “Im terrified that all of human art is only 50,000 years old and that nothing anything any of us do will ever matter. jk lol Bwahahahhahahahhaha. Madonna cant save us now.” He contemplates the black hole and humanity’s existence on a song fittingly titled “Madonna Can’t Save Me Now”. Listen in below.
For more of Butler’s newspaper-inspired songs, check out “Clean Monday”, “Waving Flags”, and “You Must Be Kidding”. Meanwhile, he will release his solo debut, Policy, on March 10th through Merge.

UK act SOAK releasing debut album on Rough Trade, playing NYC before SXSW (dates, streams)
Feb 26, 2015 4:12pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
UK artist Bridie Monds-Watson makes music under the name SOAK. Nominated for the BBC's Sound of 2015 Poll, SOAK's music is delicate, sometimes beautiful, heartfelt stuff. Monds-Watson's beyond-her-years voice carries much of the emotion. (It's a little like Camera Obscura...with a widescreen lens.) With two 2014 singles under her belt, SOAK will release her debut album, Before We Forgot How to Dream, in June via Rough Trade. You can watch the video for the album's first single, "Sea Creatures," and listen to a few other songs (including a cover of Chvrches' "The Mother We Share"), below.
SOAK is coming to North America for SXSW and will stop in NYC on the way there, playing Rockwood Music Hall on March 12. It's presented by the Communion folks and tickets are on sale. All dates are listed, along with videos and song streams, below...

Feb 26, 2015 3:43pm | StereoGum

Eartheater released an LP (listen), celebrating tonight; Greg Fox playing solo shows before Liturgy tour (dates)
Feb 26, 2015 3:38pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
As you may know, Eartheater is the solo project of Alexandra Drewchin, who sings in Liturgy drummer Greg Fox's band Guardian Alien. She just put out her newest album, Metalepsis, this week on Hausu Mountain, and it's an out-there psychedelic record but still more digestible than the abrasive Guardian Alien. It's diverse too. Some parts are ambient pop, others are drone folk. Sometimes electronics lead the way, but other times it's stabbing guitar and other times it's lush strings. You can listen to the full thing below and purchase it at Bandcamp for $4.20.
Eartheater celebrates the new album with a release show tonight (2/26) at Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn. Extreme Animals, Haribo and HIGHLIFE are on the bill too, and tickets are available.
Meanwhile, ahead of Liturgy's tour, Greg Fox has three solo shows in NYC. The first is under his GDFX moniker on March 4 at Trans-Pecos with Daniel Pearce / Andrew Smiley duo, Kate Henderson's Drone Acupuncture Installation and Sapropelic Pycnic (tickets). Then he has a "special solo event" on March 7 at Museum of the Moving Image (more info TBA), and finally a solo show at Union Pool on March 8.
Liturgy's tour hits NYC on April 15 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show are still available. No openers announced for Vitus yet, but the rest of the tour is with Sa...

Kanye West brought to tears while discussing Louise Wilson in new interview with Zane Lowe watch
Feb 26, 2015 3:23pm | Cosequence Of Sound
This evening’s episode of Zane Lowe’s radio program on BBC Radio 1 featured an interview with Kanye West. If you recall, the two men previously spoke following the release of Yeezus in September 2013, a conversation which generated headlines and late-night TV parodies for Kanye’s inflammatory comments on classism and his stature in the industry (e.g., “Rap is the new rock and roll, we bring culture, we the real rock stars. And Im the biggest of all of them.”).
Their latest meeting was much more mild-mannered, as Kanye discussed the events of the last 18 months, specifically the launch of his collaboration with adidas. He also spoke more on classism, as well as the Grammys, fatherhood, and his relationship with Drake.
Perhaps the most surreal moment of the interview came when Kanye spoke about his relationship with fashion designer Louise Wilson, who passed away in May 2014. She was “notorious for not letting people atop at a 7 or 8, pushing people to a 12,” Kanye said of her ideology, which he has no doubt taken to heart. He then recounted a dinner they had together prior to her passing, and the words of advice she gave him: “When a child does something good, parents generally clap. ‘Kanye, don’t clap.'” Moments later, Kanye broke down in tears, leading Lowe to briefly pause the interview.
Despite his best efforts, Lowe was only able to get a f...
The Week In Pop: The Grand Rehabilitation Of Lady Gaga
Feb 26, 2015 3:19pm | StereoGum
Less than a year ago I published a post with the headline Watch Lady Gaga Get Doused In Neon Vomit While Riding A Mechanical S&M Pig At SXSW, Brought To You By Doritos. The garish excess of Gaga’s performance-art spectacle was typical of the obscene brand-mania that has infected SXSW to its core, but more […]
Watch Kanye Wests new interview with BBC Radio 1s Zane Lowe
Feb 26, 2015 3:17pm | Fact Magazine
After last night’s explosive Brits performance, Kanye West found time to sit down with Zane Lowe once more.
Kanye West’s 2013 interview with Zane Lowe was one of the polarizing rapper/producer’s most honest and upfront to date, so the promise of a follow-up is very exciting. This time around Kanye talks to the Radio 1 jock about what’s been happening in the last two years, and got so emotional speaking about his late friend Louise Wilson – a fashion design lecturer – he was moved to tears. Read some quotes below the video.
On his new album, which he’s previously called “cookout music”:
“[I’m] just working hard on it and it’s fun, it’s fun to be inventive and I’ve still got a lot of opinions and perspectives that are important and could be inspiring to people who fight. College Dropout, the album, came out of a fight to rap and this new album’s coming out of a fight to design … it’s a joyful noise unto the Lord.”
On working with Paul McCartney:
“I like the differences of views in our approach… I come in and have this list of complaints — “this happened!” and “that happened!” — and he’s like “Yo man, it’s all cool though — how about we make a song?” And we just make song after song after song after song.&...
