In about two weeks, Santigold will let loose her long-awaited new album, 99¢. The LP collects 12 tracks, some of which we’ve already heard: lead single Cant Get Enough of Myself, the iLoveMakonnen-aided Who Be Lovin Me, and the soaring “Chasing Shadows”.
Today, she’s back with another preview in tow, “Banshee”. A colorful and bubbly pop anthem that’ll have you wishing the weekend was already here, it features rousing shouts of “C’mon!” and snappy handclaps.
The song was premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program and can be heard below.
99¢, the follow-up to 2012’s Master of My Make-Believe, hits shelves on February 26th through Atlantic Records. In support of the record, Santigold has a North American tour set to kick off in March; find the dates here.
Grant-Lee Phillips readies 'The Narrows' (listen to "Cry Cry"), will be back as 'Gilmore Girls' town troubadour
Feb 11, 2016 1:26pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
News of casting for Netflix's Gilmore Girls revival have been flying as the show's dialogue ever since the official announcement came two weeks ago. Most pertinent to this blog is Grant-Lee Phillips will return as the town troubadour (who was last seen leaving Stars Hollow to tour with Neil Young at the end of Season 6). He talked with Salon about the show's impact:
When I first started appearing on that show, I couldn't really get a sense of how it would impact my notoriety, my profile. But what I have experienced is there's a younger crowd especially--and this exists all over the world where I tour--they have discovered me through the "Gilmore Girls." They show up to my gig in Hamburg with their "Gilmore" DVDs. I think it's quite amazing. I don't know how else they would have discovered me otherwise, because this particular generation would've been too young to have seen the videos on MTV or heard the band on the radio. I mean, they might hear me on the radio now, but I feel like my career kind of exists despite the state of radio. It's not really what it's all about for me, these days. I'm very grateful for "Gilmore Girls," and the fact it's turned on a whole new generation to my stuff.Watch a compilation of Grant-Lee Phillips' appearances on Gilmore Girls...
River Tiber No Talk Video
Feb 11, 2016 1:24pm | StereoGum
Toronto electronic musician River Tiber's "No Talk" is best-known for being sampled on Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late highlight "No Tellin'," but the song is perfectly great on its own, and it now has a gloomy video to go along with it. Crisp black-and-white cinematography highlights Tommy Paxton-Beesley's home base, … More »

DOOMSTARKS appears to finally be happening.
We’ve been hearing about Ghostface Killah and MF Doom’s collaborative album for years at this point, but recently the pair have given us good reason to expect it soon.
Late last year, Ghostface confirmed that he and Doom plan to release the album — referred to as DOOMSTARKS — in February. Now that we’re in the promised month, Ghostface appears to be making good on the promise by posting this teasing artwork (designed by Digital Death & Grime) to his Facebook page.

Flying Lotus pays tribute to J Dilla with hour-long mix listen

J Dilla passed away on February 10, 2006, just three days after celebrating both his 32nd birthday and the release of his seminal record, Donuts. As a tribute to the acclaimed producer, Flying Lotus spun a special live mix that same day on the non-profit online radio station dublab.
Now, ten years later, and in honor of Dilla, dublab has released the mix in full, as Pitchfork notes. In addition to Dilla’s own original material, the 60-minute collection includes tracks that Dilla himself sampled throughout his discography.
In an interview with Westword a few years ago, FlyLo talked about the deep connection he has with Dilla’s work, saying:
“I think my connection with J Dilla’s music really justified a lot of the experiences I was having in music. When I heard it, it sounded like someone was having spiritual experiences in the process of making it. I felt like, wow, it’s okay to have that experience and you can still be funky and you could still be searching within yourself and you could still be sounding big.
It could be so many things and still be deep and heartfelt. A lot of his music you can hear, and be like, ‘Damn!’ and connect with something that almost makes you close your eyes to hear it. He didn’t need any voices on top, and he didn’t need any rappers for that feeling. I think he set a standard and an aesthet...
listen to Somos' new song "Reminded/Weighed Down"
Feb 11, 2016 1:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
Somos already revealed two songs off their new album First Day Back, which is due out next week (2/19) via Hopeless (pre-order), and we've got the premiere of a third. Like the first two, "Reminded/Weighed Down" is more proof that this album is gonna top everything they've done. It's a very dynamic song, going from delicate verses to a chorus that veers into "epic" territory, with lots of subtle changes in between. It's got welcome remnants of radio rock (ca. '97 - '03) but there's a modern twist here for sure. Check it out below.
The band's tour with Petal and The Superweaks hits NYC on March 5 at The Studio at Webster Hall with local support from Adult Mom. Tickets for that show are still available. All dates are listed below.

The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die release new song "Katamari Duquette" (listen)

The always-prolific The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die put out a career-best album with last year's Harmlessness, and they're already back with two new songs. The Long Live Happy Birthday 7" comes out March 25 via Topshelf (pre-order), and "Katamari Duquette" off of that is streaming now. It's not a million miles away from what they were doing on Harmlessness, but this is no throwaway b-side. It opens up sounding like clean slowcore and it ends with something that borders on metal. They build up and back down and up again in between those two bookends, and even when they're structuring songs like a post-rock band they're lyrical as ever. Listen below (via NPR).
The band will soon be touring with Into It. Over It., The Sidekicks and Pinegrove. That tour hit NYC on April 22 at Irving Plaza (tickets).
