The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
Aug 29, 2014 1:28pm | StereoGum

Labor Day Weekend is upon us, and with it, the unofficial end of summer. So, in hindsight, what was the Song Of Summer 2014? “Fancy”? It was probably “Fancy.” What else even came close? “Anaconda” arrived too late, “Happy” peaked too early … ” “Rude”? “Problem”? Eh. Feel free to shout out your own Songs Of The Summer in the comments. As for Songs Of The Week? See below.

Watch Thom Yorke Play Another Surprise DJ Set At Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
Aug 29, 2014 12:49pm | StereoGum

Radiohead main man Thom Yorke apparently really enjoys showing up at random gatherings and playing music for whoever’s there, even if it’s just eight people in a field in Cornwall. Way back in 2009, he showed up at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles and spun records. On Tuesday night, he was back there again, doing an unannounced DJ set at the weekly Nightswim party at the Tropicana pool. This time, quick-thinking partygoers got a few video clips of Yorke at the CD turntables; check them out below.

The Heavy Lowdown: Slayer, Iron Maiden, Blake Judd, YOB, Roadburn 2015 lineup, Opeth, weekend shows & more
Aug 29, 2014 12:37pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey

The above pic was posted on Slayer's Instagram earlier in the week. Does it herald, as many expect, a new Slayer album in 2015? Is it the genesis of their pivotal post-Hanneman/Lombardo/Rubin album? Or is Kerry King just a huge Fraiser fan? I guess we'll let time decide.

At least we know Dave Lombardo isn't planning a Slayer comeback. He's more than content with his current project PHILM, telling Metal Hammer regarding a possible return to Slayer's drummer's stool: "No. That's it. I'm done now. I've got lots of other things on my plate and I now know that, when it comes to money, you don't have any friends in this business. I won't ever be going back." No friends in this business? Maybe my friend George Washington will change your mind! (Sorry, I need that back for the parking meter.)

Speaking of money, here's a name that might send shivers down the spine of your PayPal account: Blake Judd. The Nachtmystium frontman is again accused of making away with fans' money without delivering the merch. Whether or not there's any validity to the allegations, the Nachtmystium Facebook page is no more.

As for albums that have a good chance of finding your hands, Iron Maiden have embarked on a huge reissue project. Not only will their entire '80s run get repressed on vinyl, but the original singles are making their way back in print, too. Che...


30 More Songs Arcade Fire Should Cover
Aug 29, 2014 12:33pm | Chart Attack

Arcade Fire are one of Canadas most widely beloved (and reviled) bands with four studio albums to their name, but on their current world tour, theyve mostly made headlines for singing other peoples songs rather than their own. Now theres nothing wrong with a well-placed cover, and you cant fault music publications for posting poorly-shot fan YouTube videos on slow news days, but the groups regionally friendly choices (Fugazi in Washington! Feist in Calgary!) have lacked, shall we sayinspiration.

This weekend, the band finishes Web Content Tour 2014 (Toronto tonight and Montreal on Saturday), which means they have just two more chances to fuel blogs with content for the rest of the year, so they'd better make it count. Heres a list of 30 other songs that they could cover. Some of these choices are so obvious, its hard to believe Arcade Fire havent thought of them already, while others are less predictable but surefire crowd-pleasers.

Joni Mitchell, A Case Of You

A no-brainer really.

Neil Young, Heart Of Gold

Do you think Win Butler invested in Pono?

Gordon Lightfoot, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

Q: Whats more quintessentially Canadian than this song?

The Dr. Penfield, I smell burnt toast Heritage Minute

A: This.

Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX, Fancy

Are you really going to let The Killers one-up you?

Death Grips, Ive Seen Footage

R.I.P. Death Grips (...


Lemonade Minus Tide & OST
Aug 29, 2014 12:17pm | StereoGum

The New York trio Lemonade made their name by crafting hazy synthpop jams, and three albums into their career, they’re sticking with the sound that brought them to the dance. The band’s new LP Minus Tide arrives in a couple of weeks, and they’ve already let the world hear their songs “Stepping,” “Orchid Bloom,” and “Come Down Softly.” Today, they’ve shared two more, “Minus Tide” and “OST,” and both of them are shimmering, rippling sighs, though “OST” has more of a thumping rhythm track than anything we’ve heard from these guys lately. Listen to both songs below.

The Best Soundtrack Moments Of August 2014: Gone Girl, The Hateful Eight, Guardians Of The Galaxy, & More
Aug 29, 2014 11:52am | StereoGum

August is, generally speaking, not such a great month. It’s the dead zone between blockbuster season and Oscar season, and the moment before TV’s fall schedule kicks off. So then, this month my favorite soundtrack moments came from all over — from one glorious blockbuster to end the summer, to good-but-not-amazing movies I happened to stumble upon, to snippets pointing toward the future.

Wand released debut album, playing NYC next week before tour with Ty Segall (dates, LP stream)
Aug 29, 2014 11:49am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Los Angeles band Wand just released their debut album, Ganglion Reef, this week (8/26) via Ty Segall's GOD imprint through Drag City. It's fuzzed-out, very catchy psych-rock in the late '60s style. If you dig Ty's new album (and you should), definitely give Wand a listen. You can stream two tracks below and listen to the whole thing at Hype Machine.

Wand will be out on tour with Ty Segall next month, including the September 17 date at Webster Hall in NYC (tickets). (The 9/18 show is with La Luz). Before that tour starts, Wand will play NYC this Tuesday (9/2) at Mercury Lounge with Lazer Cake and Water. Tickets are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with the song streams, below...

UPDATE: The Mercury Lounge show we had originally listed for Tuesday is a different Wand. One of these Wands needs to change their name....we'll let them work it out.

Hear Diplo Debut Jack Us Kiesza Collaboration Take U There At Mad Decent Block Party
Aug 29, 2014 11:48am | StereoGum

Jack U is the EDM wonder-twins super-team of Diplo and Skrillex. Though they’ve been recording together lately, their music only seems to exist in the form of tracks that Diplo plays during festival DJ sets. One of those tracks is “Take U There,” a collaboration with Kiesza, the singer behind the monster house-pop anthem “Takeaway.” Diplo played it during a recent Mad Decent Block Party, and a live recording has since made its way to the internet. This probably isn’t the ideal way to hear the song, but it’s fast and catchy and insistent, and it will probably feel like the end of the world to anyone who didn’t like Grimes’ “Go.” You should probably familiarize yourself now, since there’s a decent chance this song will be inescapable in a few months. Check out the live recording below.

Riff Raff to Sam Smith: thanks for cutting me out, you chubby little f**k factory
Aug 29, 2014 11:45am | Fact Magazine

The FACT Singles Club has speculated about Sam Smith and the illuminati in the past, and now it seems Riff Raff is fighting the system too.

After Sam Smith cut Riff Raff out of a photo on his Instagram, the Mad Decent-signed rapper came back with the following tweet. And nothing was the same:
