FULL SCREEN: Tegan and Saras Boyfriend video is a total cliché
Apr 28, 2016 9:57am | Chart Attack
Full Screen is our rumination on the remarkable music videos of the day. Today, Tegan and Sara pull back the curtain on the tedium of video shoots, J Dilla and Nas take us back, and Programm drop a gorgous black and white epic.
Tegan and Sara, "Boyfriend"
If you're going to shoot a music video, why not show what it's actually like? Tegan and Sara's video for "Boyfriend" shows both the glamorous side of video shoots, as well as the annoying parts... which are mostly caused by the glamorous parts. There's colourful neon backdrops that contrast the duo's all black outfits, as well as glamorous facial close ups, followed by expressions of general boredom and malaise. Hey, at least they're being genuine.
Tegan And Sara's Love You To Death is out June 3 via Warner Bros.
J Dilla ft. Nas, "The Sickness (prod. by Madlib)"
It's been almost two weeks since the posthumous release of J Dilla's long rumoured vocal album The Diary, which was originally started back in 2001. "The Sickness" serves as a reminder that Dilla was just as nice on the mic as he was behind the boards. Combine that with a Nas verse, a Madlib instrumental, and some slick graphic art ...

Blink-182 Bored To Death
Apr 28, 2016 9:42am | StereoGum
I spent most of Blink-182's initial run hating the fuck out of Blink-182, thinking they were hacky NOFX ripoffs who got lucky. Some time later, I figured something out that I probably should've known off the rip: They're one of the greatest singles bands of the past 20 years, a superbly ingratiating hook machine that … More »
Paul Simon shares new song Cool Papa Bell listen
Apr 28, 2016 9:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
On June 3rd, Paul Simon returns with his 13th solo album, Stranger to Stranger. Due out via Concord Music Group, the Roy Halee-produced record comes five years after Simon’s So Beautiful or So What. According to a press release, the LP might be his most experimental yet, as he explores electronic elements, African woodwind instruments, and 43-tones-per-octave microtonal scale of music theorist Harry Parch.
Earlier this month, Simon gave us the jazzy lead single “Wristband”. Now, he’s unveiled the lovely “Cool Papa Bell”, in which the legendary songwriter lilts over chill finger snaps and a playful melody.
Stream it below (via Pitchfork).
In support of the new album, Simon will head out on his first North American solo tour since 2011.

eLan Against The Clock
Apr 28, 2016 8:49am | Fact Magazine
MPC business from Monkeytown producer eLan.
When Modeselektor heard Elan Stouffers music, they signed the young Cali talent on the spot. After a split 10 with Falty DL on 50 Weapons, eLan dropped a trilogy of lush future-boogie and hazy hip-hop instrumentals on Monkeytown Records, later compiled on 2011s Next To Last. A member of Shlomos WEDIDIT Collective and a former resident at Critical Beatdown in San Diego, his laidback West Coast sound spins out from Dâm-Funk, Dilla and the Brainfeeder beatsmiths.
FACT TV visited eLan’s Brooklyn apartment to see what he could do in 10 minutes. You can also listen to the finished track below.
