Radiohead perform 2 + 2 = 5 for first time in seven years watch
May 25, 2016 9:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
Video via YouTube user Music-A-Live
Thus far, every setlist of Radioheads A Moon Shaped Pool Tour has brought with it a major surprise. During their tour kick-off in Amsterdam last week, they opened the show by performing the first five tracks from their new album, and also dusted off “My Iron Lung” after seven years. The following night, they drastically mixed up their set by playing 10 different songs, and in Paris this week, they actually played “Creep” as well as “No Surprises” and “Creep”, none of which had been played live prior to 2009.
Last night, Radiohead returned to the Le Zenith in Paris. In addition to the tour debuts of “Climbing Up the Walls” and “Airbag”, the band performed Hail to the Thief favorite “2 + 2 = 5” for the first time in seven years. They also closed the show with “Karma Police” which included an audience-wide singalong.
“Climbing Up the Walls”:
Radiohead’s tour continues tomorrow night in London, and I’m really hoping I get to write an article about Jonny wailing on “Anyone Can Play Guitar”.

Dogbreth Cups And Wrappers (Stereogum Premiere)
May 25, 2016 9:16am | StereoGum
When I listen to Dogbreth, I can't picture them performing anywhere but a DIY basement venue reeking of sweat and stale beer. Split between Phoenix and Seattle, the four-piece power-pop band is releasing their new LP Second Home on Asian Man Records, and today we're premiering the album's first single, "Cups And Wrappers." It takes … More »
Bad Boy, Mobb Deep, And The Endurance Of 90s Rap Nostalgia
May 25, 2016 9:13am | StereoGum
In the Bad Boy era, I hated Bad Boy. I loved Biggie, and the rest of it was an abomination to me. It was the cartoonish glitz of the videos. It was the obviousness of the samples. It was all the R&B. It was Mase's rapping-like-his-mouth-was-full-of-marshmallows delivery. It was Puff's everybody-look-at-me dancing. It was the … More »
Empress Of drops The Range remix of debut album highlight Icon
May 25, 2016 9:04am | Fact Magazine
The remix is part of a limited edition cassette.
Ahead of her London Field Day performance on June 12, New York synth-pop artist Empress Of has shared a remix of her ‘Icon’ track by Brooklyn-based producer James Hinton, aka The Range.
For his plumped-up version of the song, Hilton has added piano notes to a scrambled palate of clicks and beats – hear it below.
‘Icon’ is taken from Empress Of’s debut album Me – out now on XL Recordings/Terrible Records – which explores “the isolation an artist experiences when making their art, before it enters the world.”
The remix will be available to buy on tour, as part of a limited edition Empress Of cassette that includes other singles ‘Woman Is A Word,’ ‘Agua Agua’, along with exclusive remixes. It is also available to buy from the Terrible Records web store.
Empress Of plays this year’s Field Day, alongside a host of other names for the festival’s Sunday bill: Air, Adam Green, D.D Dumbo, Empress Of, Fat White Family, Kimmo Pohjonen Skin, Mind Enterprises, Mystery Jets, Steve Mason, The Temper Trap, and many more.

Dinosaur Jr. share new song Tiny, perform it on Jools Holland watch
May 25, 2016 9:00am | Cosequence Of Sound
Yesterday, Dinosaur Jr. announced their forthcoming 11th studio album, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not. Just a few hours later, the Massachusetts rockers appeared on Later… with Jools Holland to unveil the record’s lead single, “Tiny”.
The track is a classic piece of Dinosaur Jr. alternative rock, aggressively loud while unavoidably catchy. Even J Mascis couldn’t help from swaying back and forth during the performance when he wasn’t ripping out a guitar solo like some sort of wispy haired rock wizard. Lou Barlow delivered a happy bass line in perfect contrast to the song’s themes of self-doubt, striking at his instrument in a way few bassists would dare. And of course Murph was there to keep a steady and hard-pounded rhythm.
Watch the performance above, and check out the studio version of “Tiny” below via Spotify.
Dinosaur Jr. will drop Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not,, their first record in four years, on August 5th via Jagjaguwar. They’ll support the release with a massive tour, the dates of which can be found here.
Jenny Hval announces new album 'Blood Bitch' & tour, shares "Female Vampire"
May 25, 2016 8:55am | Brooklyn Vegan
"Blood Bitch is an investigation of blood. Blood that is shed naturally. The purest and most powerful, yet most trivial, and most terrifying blood: Menstruation. The white and red toilet roll chain which ties together the virgins, the whores, the mothers, the witches, the dreamers, and the lovers."

Jenny Hval explores menstruation, goth pop and black metal on the horror-inspired Blood Bitch
May 25, 2016 8:49am | Fact Magazine
The singular artist unveils her “most fictional and most personal” album to date.
Jenny Hval has announced her new album Blood Bitch with the release of its haunting first single ‘Female Vampire’. Hval describes Blood Bitch as a concept album inspired by blood and menstruation or “the white and red toilet roll chain which ties together the virgins, the whores, the mothers, the witches, the dreamers, and the lovers.”
The story focuses on a vampire named Orlando and is influenced by images of 70s horror and exploitation films, as well as the goth pop and metal music. Those qualities all burst on ‘Female Vampire’ – Hval’s ghostly voice glides over a minimalist pulse of percussion, horns and glassy drones, both mesmerizing and fraught with tension. The album was co-produced with noise musician Lasse Marhaug who also collaborated with Hval on the brilliant Apocalypse, girl.
The album cover – which you can see hints of in the SoundCloud below – is a reference to Ingmar Bergman’s Persona, which Hval told FACT last year was a major influence on her work.
Listen to ‘Female Vampire’ below and look for Blood Bitch September 30 via Sacred Bones.
