Spoon perform new song, cover David Bowie and Prince watch
May 26, 2016 11:28am | Cosequence Of Sound
It’s been about six months since Spoon performed together, but that doesn’t mean the band members haven’t been working. Over the weekend, Britt Daniel and Alex Fischel performed an acoustic set at Mexico City’s Festival Marvin. During the show, the pair debuted a brand new song apparently called “I Ain’t the One”. It’s hard to tell what the track might sound like as a full band piece, but the duo presented it as a lightly droning number based on heavy keyboards and a steady pulsing beat. Check out video of the performance above.
At the end of their set, Daniel and Fischel also paid tribute to two of rock music’s recent fallen greats. They covered David Bowies “I Can’t Give Everything Away” from (Blackstar) as well as Princes “Under the Cherry Moon”. Watch clips of both those covers below. (Daniels previously covered Bowie’s “Never Let Me Down” earlier this year.)

As the streaming war escalates, SoundCloud will now master your music for free
May 26, 2016 11:17am | Chart Attack
The war is now total. The big streamers are using whatever artillery they can muster to attract users: exclusive releases, family plans, licensing options, free trials, extended free trials, Tidal will probably come wash your car. Now, SoundCloud, which has a long history of catering specifically to creators, says it'll master your music for free.
The company launched its consumer subscription service last month, SoundCloud Go, but has quickly returned its attention to uploaders. In partnership with the online mastering service LANDR, all SoundCloud users free or paid will soon be able to have their tracks optimized for the streaming platform. This isn't LANDR's tippy-top HD service, but an enhancement designed especially for the platform.
We use exactly the same algorithms," a LANDR spokesman told Resident Advisor, "but we did some research to find the best output for optimising the sound of any track on the SoundCloud streaming...

May 26, 2016 11:15am | Fact Magazine
It’s been a pretty big week for celebrating Detroit’s contribution to the history of electronic music.
After the city’s mayor Mike Duggan officially dapped it Detroit Techno Week, the Detroit City Council honored many of the Motor City’s techno and house pioneers with the Spirit of Detroit Award.
The award, which acknowledges “outstanding achievement or service to the citizens of Detroit” was given to Carl Craig, Jeff Mills, Eddie Fowlkes, Kelli Hand, the Belleville Three (Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins and Derrick May) and group Underground Resistance. Institutions like Submerge – Detroit’s “secret” techno museum – and Movement Festival, which takes place this weekend, were also awarded.
“It feels great when you know something we’ve made from our hometown has touched the world,” Saunderson wrote on Facebook. “As they said yesterday, Detroit techno brings people together, Detroit love, our vision of music, the world dancing as one united, it’s true and it’s happened, so thanks to the city of Detroit for acknowledging this.”

Jeff Goldblum plays jazz and makes a sandwich on Facebook Live watch
May 26, 2016 11:03am | Cosequence Of Sound
By now, you’ve probably noticed Facebook Live is a thing. Your friends are doing it. We’re doing it. So is Jeff Goldblum.
On Wednesday night, the greatest living actor alive hosted a variety show for an hour and a half in an effort to raise cash for Oceana and Conservation International. Naturally, he succeeded, and all with the power of good ol’ fashioned jazz.
A longtime jazz performer, Goldblum was a total natural behind the piano and the mic. We’ve always known he’s a cool cat, but damn if he doesn’t get cooler by each passing night. He even played with The Voice contestant Maiya Sykes.
In between his sultry sounds, the former BrundleFly entertained his dedicated audience with various trivia games, mostly involving Independence Day. Speaking of which, he even made a sandwich for the film’s director Roland Emmerich.
Revisit the whole night below, and then wish, pray, or beg that he comes to your local saloon some day.
Goldblum will next fights aliens again in Independence Day: Resurgence, due out June 24th.
Stream: Paul Simons new album Stranger to Stranger
May 26, 2016 10:57am | Cosequence Of Sound
On June 3rd, Paul Simon will release his new album, Stranger to Stranger, through Concord Music Group. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full below courtesy of NPR.com.
The 11-track effort follows 2011’s So Beautiful or So What and marks his 13th solo effort to date. It sees the legendary songwriter at his most experimental, playing with electronic rhythms, African woodwind instruments, and the 43-tones-per-octave microtonal scale of music theorist Harry Parch.
There are a lot of preconceptions [about my new work] because I have been familiar to the public for 50 years, Simon told Rolling Stone. They go, Is it going to be Graceland? It is going to be Me and Julio Down The Schoolyard? Simon and Garfunkel? The Capeman? To get people to listen with open ears, you have to really make something that is interesting because people are prepared for it not to be interesting.
Frequent collaborator Roy Halee was brought out of retirement to help co-produce the LP. The 81-year-old had previously worked on all of Simon and Garfunkels albums, plus Graceland and Paul Simon.
Stranger to Stranger is preceded by early singles “Wristband”, “Cool Papa Bell”, and “The Werewolf”.
Pre-order the album here.
