Stone Roses Fan Dies After Collapsing at Glasgow Gig...
Jun 17, 2013 12:21pm | The Daily Swarm
A 24 year-old woman has died after collapsing during a Stone Roses concert on Saturday in Glasgow. 50,000 people were in attendance to see the reunited Manchester band perform at Glasgow Green. According to the BBC, 24 people were arrested during or after the concert for anti-social and drug offenses, though the cause of the woman’s death has not been determined. Via Spin:

Jun 17, 2013 12:15pm | The Line Of Best Fit
It’s been nearly three years since Bodebrixen graced the pages of Best Fit and, within that time the Danish duo seemed to have toned down their explosive, technicolored sound somewhat.
Their feet still very much in the depths of Gothenburg’s mid-00′s music scene – The Embassy and The Tough Alliance being obvious touchstones – new single ‘The Wave’ is more restrained than previous work.
A welcome return from a thoroughly charming duo whose time in the spotlight may finally be upon them.

Painting by Thom Yorke, Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood heads to auction
Jun 17, 2013 12:06pm | Fact Magazine
Subterranean homesick artists.
The ten-foot canvas, emblazoned with the title “Business School for the Dead,” was painted by Thom Yorke and longtime collaborator Stanley Donwood in 2005 as part of a fair trade protest.
“Hope someone in the financial industry buys this,” Yorke tweeted, “what a novelty to have a painting at auction ha!” The painting is being auctioned to benefit the Trade Justice Movement and is expected to cost between £3,500 and £4,000 ($5,500 to $6,300 US).
Yorke and Donwood (the alias of Dan Rickwood) met as art students at the University of Exeter, and Donwood has created all the album and promotional art for Radiohead and Thom Yorke’s solo projects since 1994. For more information, head to the website of auctioneer Bonhams.
For Every Coachella, There's a Vegoose...
Jun 17, 2013 12:05pm | The Daily Swarm
You know all of the big, successful music festivals: Bonnaroo, Coachella, SXSW, Sasquatch! It may seem as though there’s an endless supply of three-day lovefests backed by ambitious investors who are willing to take big risks to start their own franchise. A few years ago, that assertion would be more or less correct, but take a look at this list of deceased festivals if you need a reminder of how hard it is to be sustainable in the live music game.

Yale alumni San Fermin craft family drama with their video for “Sonsick.” The chamber-pop track sounds easy-breezy, but the lyrics are just as heavy as the visuals. You feel the emotional pull from singers Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe, especially in the multi-layered hook. Check it out below.
Moby relaunches database of free music for filmmakers, including remixes by David Lynch, Apparat and more
Jun 17, 2013 11:56am | Fact Magazine
Take it from a guy who once had every single song on his album licensed for use in a film, TV show or commercial.
Veteran electronic producer Moby has relaunched MobyGratis.com, a database of free music available for use by film students, not-for-profit ventures and independent filmmakers.
The relaunched site adds even more music from Moby’s back catalogue, including his last two albums Wait For Me and Destroyed, his recent collaboration with Mark Lanegan and remixes from David Lynch, Apparat, Photek, Yeasayer and others.
The music is completely free as long it’s for a non-commercial venture. If the music is used commercially, any money made goes to The Humane Society, a charity chosen by Moby, who’s well-known for his veganism and stance on animal rights. At no point does the producer himself make any money from the venture, he’s at pains to add

The Postal Service played two nights at Barclays (night 1 pics & setlist)

The Postal Service @ Barclays Center, 6/14/2013
With a decade of perspective, the Postal Service didn't change the songs much. Along with Mr. Gibbard, Mr. Tamborello and Ms. Lewis, the touring Postal Service now also includes Laura Burhenn from the Mynabirds on keyboards and vocal harmonies. They played the group's repertory with the songs' old proportions, and probably their original electronic parts, largely intact. The set also included "This Is the Dream of Evan and Chan," the 2001 song from Dntel that featured Mr. Gibbard and led to the formation of the Postal Service; its staticky intro was replaced with something more melodic and arena-friendly. A backdrop of geometric lights could look like level meters in a recording studio or dance-club strobes. - [NY Times]The Postal Service's Give Up 10th Anniversary tour finally hit NYC over the weekend for two shows at Barclays Center. At Friday's (6/14) sold-out show, they played the entirety of their only album, Give Up, in addition to a Dntel song and a cover of Beat Happening's "Our Secret." Pictures from the show (though unfortunately none of openers Mates of State) and the setlist are in this post. They played again on Saturday (6/15) with Ra Ra Riot opening.

I Don't Give A F*ck" title="DJ Rashad announces EP for Hyperdub, I Don't Give A F*ck" width="685" height="402" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-160300" />
The Teklife footworker returns to Kode9′s Hyperdub imprint.
Earlier this year, DJ Rashad released the superb Rollin’ EP on Hyperdub. On July 22, he will release I Don’t Give a Fuck. No word on whether it’s an EP or an LP; Rashad released his second album, Teklife Vol 1: Welcome to the Chi just about a year ago.
Other than the cover (below), there are no further details yet. However, we have heard the title track; watch Ashes57′s video for the track below.
Stream Mac Miller Watching Movies With The Sound Off
Jun 17, 2013 11:21am | StereoGum
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been low-level fascinated with the idea that Mac Miller, the goonish Pittsburgh rapper, somehow embraced his inner stoner weirdo and found a way to get good. His recent collabs with Flying Lotus, Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, Jay Electronica, and Schoolboy Q have all been varying degrees of strong, and his new album Watching Movies With The Sound Off also has appearances from Action Bronson and Tyler, The Creator, which would further support the idea that maybe this guy is worth caring about now. This Yeezus Premature Evaluation isn’t going to write itself, so I haven’t had time to test out the theory yet, but you can! Because Watching Movies With The Sound Off is now streaming at Miller’s website. Hear it here.
Watching Movies With The Sound Off is out 6/18 on Rostrum.
Portico Quartet to bring their innovative sound to London
Jun 17, 2013 11:21am | Fact Magazine
Portico Quartet plot out their next live endeavor.
Experimental fusion outfit Portico Quartet‘s last London show was a sell out, which might explain why we’re announcing this now even though it’s actually happening way down the line in November. The band’s devastatingly original blend of sounds will be complemented this time by silky-voiced vocalist Cornelia which promises to add another dimension still to this Village Underground show.
The band released their new album Live/Remix in March and you can hear a taster below.
