Chumped December Is The Longest Month Video
Dec 17, 2014 12:13pm | StereoGum

Brooklyn-based Band To Watch Chumped found their way into our hearts throughout 2014 by taking the risk to be explicit, and we named their debut album Teenage Retirement one of the best of this year. There’s a lot of complexity to be found on Teenage Retirement, but all of that complexity has nothing to do with challenging songwriting, and everything to do with the fact that relationships, friendships, and existence are all dauntingly difficult when you’re a young person living in the often very cold emotional vortex of New York City. So it comes as no surprise that Chumped would release a narrative video for “December Is The Longest Month,” the leading track off of Teenage Retirement. The video, directed by Andy Mendez, chronicles the aftermath of a party: We witness our protagonist attempting to fix a very broken, very sad snowglobe as she is hounded by flashbacks of the night before. There’s a lot of betrayal and heartbreak, but none of the situation seems all too tragic unless you’ve ever been in the midst of it. Watch the video at EW.

Watch: Kendrick Lamar Debuts New Song On The Colbert Report
Dec 17, 2014 11:55am | CMJ


Stephen Colbert will soon leave The Colbert Report for greener Late Show pastures, but he’s still got a few episodes left, and last night, Kendrick Lamar became the show’s final musical guest. Though he’s been dragging his feet on the good kid m.A.A.d city follow-up, Lamar’s definitely been working on something, because he debuted a new song yesterday—without a title. The cool, sly track features Thundercat and Bilal, while Kendrick skips between a slow soul flow and rapid, controlled aggression.

Colbert, in his typical straight-faced goof way, asks Lamar if, with the job of “leader of west coast rap,” it’s hard to get life insurance. We never really get an answer. Watch the live performance and interview, below.

Doomtree premiere video for Gray Duck watch
Dec 17, 2014 11:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

Minneapolis hip-hop collective Doomtree has shared the video for “Gray Duck”, the lead single from its upcoming album All Hands, due out January 27th via Doomtree Records.

It’sThe Italian Job meets Howard The Duck as the Doomtree collective swerve through dimly lit streets wearing duck masks and hoodies. Each MC spits a verse in the back of a nondescript van, picking up members and blowing smoke out of their duck bills along the way. Elsewhere, a seemingly unsuspecting security guard rides his Segway in circles around a parking garage. The anticipation between the two parties builds throughout, culminating in a high stakes, duck-centric dance battle. Check it out below.



Anthrax keep getting nominated for Grammys, now have their own bourbon called "Indians"
Dec 17, 2014 10:59am | Brooklyn Vegan

You may not even realize metal legends Anthrax released a new album this year. That's because they didn't (they're planning for one next year though), but that didn't stop them from being nominated for a Grammy for a cover of "Neon Knights" they recorded for a Dio tribute album. It's actually their sixth Grammy nomination, and their third since 2011 which is the last time they put out a new LP. Being the 12th best metal band to ever walk this earth, not to mention placement in the 'Big Four', has its benefits (sorry Pallbearer!).

ANDDDDDD....

What better way for the members of Anthrax to celebrate their sixth Grammy nomination than to toast it with a glass of their own brand of bourbon, "Indians."

Anthrax has aligned with Jefferson's Bourbon, the Kentucky-based company that produces special, limited edition "small batch" whiskeys by blending a variety of aged bourbons and rye whiskeys. Anthrax's "Indians," a single barrel bourbon, was personally chosen by the band and will taste like no other due to its particular blend and the barrel it was aged in.

"We've been wanting to come up with a special item like this, something that was unusual, one-of-a-kind, not a t-shirt or hoodie or poster," said the band's Frank Bello "and 'Indians' was perfect."

Anthrax's "Indians" bourbon is now available exclusively through Atlantic City Bottle Company - http://acbottlecompany.com/ . "Indians" will be priced at $75 per bottle (i...


Hear Wiz Khalifa Rap Over Mac DeMarco
Dec 17, 2014 10:58am | StereoGum

Having met neither man, I feel like Wiz Khalifa would get along really well with Mac DeMarco. There would be a lot of laughing, and they might even develop a secret handshake. As it stands, Khalifa decided to rap over the instrumental from DeMarco’s “Chamber Of Reflections,” turning it into a new song called “Smoke Chambers.” DeMarco’s original vocal slides into the mix for the fade-out. Hear it below, or download it for free here if you follow Wiz on Twitter.

Madonnas new, unannounced album reportedly leaks onto the web
Dec 17, 2014 10:47am | Cosequence Of Sound

A 13-track album of new music from Madonna has reportedly leaked onto the web. Oh No They Didn’t theorizes that the release could be the entirety of Madonna’s as-yet-unannounced thirteenth studio album, rumored to be titled either Unapologetic Bitch or Iconic.

Madonna’s camp has experienced a fury of unauthorized leaks in recent weeks, leading to the singer’s manager Guy Oseary to enlist the public’s help. “I would be grateful to any Madonna fans that can assist us in finding those responsible for the leak,” Oseary tweeted after a song titled “Rebel Heart” hit the web late last month. “We appreciate your help.”

However, it appears her camp was unable to plug the leak as today’s release is easily the biggest cache of content yet. As of publication, it’s unclear whether this latest leak contains demo versions of the tracks or the finished album.

For the follow-up to 2012’s MDNA, Madonna has reportedly been working with everyone from Avicii and Diplo to Blood Diamonds and Ariel Pink.

Leaked album’s tracklist:
01. Unapologetic Bitch
02. Bitch I’m Madonna
03. Addicted (The One That Got Away)
04. Borrowed Time
05. Heartbreak City
06. Illuminati
07. Joan Of Arc
08. Living 4 Love (Carry On)
09. Make The Devil Pray

Madonna says leaking of new album is artistic rape and form of terrorism

PREMIERE: The debut single from Darlene Shrugg, Freedom Comes In A Plastic Card
Dec 17, 2014 10:46am | Chart Attack

For 10+ years, Tropics functioned as Slim Twig's untethered id. While the thoughtful Toronto music veteran took apart and reassembled rockabilly, hip-hop and psych, Tropics was his place to unite with a seriously forceful drummer - Simone TB, most recently of Fiver/The Highest Order - really lean in and make some noise. But Tropics were more of a live beast than a recording project, and they left us with just one 7".

Tropics haven't so much departed as evolved, shifted, expanded and mutated. And out of that transformation comes Darlene Shrugg, a new band made up of Simone TB and Slim Twig of Tropics, plus Slim's wife/artistic partner Meg Remy of U.S. Girls and both Amanda Crist and Carlyn Bezic of Ice Cream. It's a good chunk of Toronto's east end music scene in one band.

Freedom Comes In A Plastic Card by Darlene Shrugg

Where all of the members' main projects approach genre conventions - loosely art-punk, girl group pop and minimalist post-punk - from somewhat of an intellectual (and sometimes unsettling) distance, Darlene Shrugg is a place for straight ahead (but not too straight ahead) rock music. Their debut song, "Freedom Comes In A Plastic Card," which we've got streaming above, displays their new split vocal approach and their surprisingly danceable glam rock melodies.

According to Slim Twig (whose ID makes up the cover shot), the song commemorates a simple decade-delayed rite of passage: "It was wri...


slowcore vets Spain released 'Sargent Place' (stream it), playing two NYC shows before European tour
Dec 17, 2014 10:45am | Brooklyn Vegan
The glacially paced, attention-span taxing music that's come to be dubbed slowcore would seem an unlikely export for sunny, spontaneous Southern California, but Spain goes a long way toward proving you can't always judge a book by...well, its place of publication. Led by bassist/vocalist Josh Haden (a former member of the Minutemen-damaged agit-punk combo Treacherous Jaywalkers, the son of venerable free-jazz bassist Charlie Haden and brother of that dog's Haden sisters), the quartet ambles deliberately through soundscapes that evoke the windswept romance suggested by its name. - [Trouser Press]
Slowcore pioneers Spain (aka Josh Haden for all intents and purposes) released Sargant Place, their fifth album, last month via Dine Alone Records. The record features Josh's father and jazz legend Charlie Haden's last-recorded performance, on the song "You and I," and his sister Petra (that dog., The Decemberists, etc) is on it too. You can stream the album (via The Key) below.

Spain will be touring Europe early next year and will stop in NYC on the way there, playing a free show on January 29 at Lincoln Center's David Rubenstein Atrium, and then February 3 at Rough Trade. Tickets for the Rough Trade show go on sale Friday (12/19) at noon. All dates are listed, along with the album stream, below...

Snapchat is trying to launch a record label
Dec 17, 2014 10:38am | Fact Magazine

Thus far, the Sony hacks have primarily dealt with behind-the-scenes Hollywood squabbles – but it seems the musical disclosures have begun.

As Billboard report, new leaks show that the company behind Snapchat has been attempting to edge into the music business. The information comes from emails pinched from the account of Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton, who was tapped up by Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel to help the mobile messaging company make the transition into music provision.

According to correspondence between Lynton and Sony Musics president of global digital business Dennis Kooker, Spiegels primary goal was to set up his own Snapchat label:

He doesnt want to build a music service but he would like to have a record label so he could focus on the artists that he wants to use the platform to promote.  He also wants to participate in the upside that he will create by promoting them on the platform.

Spiegel is also described as thinking that every music service in the market is shit, and having aspirations to be a curator. Lynton subsequently helped Spiegel dip his toe in the water of music provision, arranging meetings with the likes of LA Reid and Vevo CEO Rio Caraeff. A possible arrangement with Vevo to incorporate music videos into Snapchat hit the skids earlier this year.

At present, it’s unclear whether the plans have nudged any further beyo...
