Liam Hemsworth offered lead role in Independence Day 2
Jan 28, 2015 8:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Though Roland Emmerich’s long-in-the-works sequel to 1996’s Independence Day is finally getting off the ground, one big question remains unanswered: Who will replace Will Smith as the film’s leading man?

According to The Wrap, Emmerich has offered the starring role to Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth. Michael B. Jordan, who is set to appear in the forthcoming Fantastic Four film, is also up for a role.

Dubbed ID Forever, the film is scheduled to hit theaters on June 24th, 2016. Both Jeff Goldblum (David Levinson) and Bill Pullman (President Thomas J. Whitmore) are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel; however, Emmerich said Smith was too expensive to bring back. He could still appear in a cameo, though.

Emmerich will direct from a script most recently rewritten by Carter Blanchard. Emmerich and Dean Devlin will produce with Harald Kloser.

The original Independence Day opened July 3, 1996 and brought in $817.4 million worldwide. Below, watch the trailer for the sci-fi favorite. “Welcome to Earth.”

Metro Thuggin Warrior & Speed Racer
Jan 28, 2015 8:10am | StereoGum

Sometime last year, Atlanta rap world-eater Young Thug and producer Metro Boomin teamed up to from a duo called Metro Thuggin. There was talk of a mixtape, and that sadly hasn’t come to pass yet, though the tracks they’ve made — “The Blanguage,” “Cash Talk” — have been pretty incredible. And now that both Thug and Metro Boomin are heading out on tour with Travi$ Scott, maybe we’ll finally get to hear what happens when these two have some time to kill in the bus. In any case, last night, they came out with two new songs. “Speed Racer” is a madly ping-ponging truck-rattler, and “Warrior” is an intense six-minute zone-out, a real tour de force. Both of them make me want to hear more. Check out both tracks below.


Peter Ulrich (Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil) releasing new solo album, playing 1st-ever show with his Collaboration band
Jan 28, 2015 8:00am | Brooklyn Vegan

Peter Ulrich played drums and percussion in the early years of Dead Can Dance, and is on many of their 4AD albums, including 1984's self-titled debut and 1987's Within the Realm of a Dying Sun. He also contributed "At First, and Then" to This Mortal Coil's Filagree & Shadow and played on Wolfgang Press albums as well. He's released a number of solo albums, too, which don't stray too far from the gothy, orchestral folk of Dead Can Dance. Those include 1999's Pathways and Dawns which was produced by DCD's Brendan Perry, and 2013's The Painted Caravan, the first in a planned trilogy. In May, Ulrich will release Tempus Fugitives, which is the second in the "Painted Caravan" trilogy. Check out the single "Dark Daddy," which features harpist Erin Hill (who has played on records by Enya, Kanye, Moby and more), below.

His band, The Peter Ulrich Collaboration, will play their first-ever live show at Webster Hall's Marlin Room on June 20 with Erin Hill and French & the Punk. Ulrich also promises "VERY special guests" at the show. Tickets go on sale Friday (1/30) at 10 AM.

Hear Charli XCXs New Japanese Versions Of Boom Clap & Break The Rules
Jan 28, 2015 7:43am | StereoGum

Because of some weird label stuff, Charli XCX’s Sucker doesn’t officially come out in most places overseas for a few more weeks, almost two months after it was released stateside. The Japanese edition of the album — which is out 2/18 — comes with two versions of the album’s lead singles that specifically cater to that market. “Boom Clap” and “Break The Rules” get Japanese language updates, and Charli strains to adopt the mixture of Japanese and English that marks most J-pop tracks. She’s also previously made a Tokyo edition of the video for “Boom Clap,” so this isn’t her first time doing this. You can hear previews of the two new versions below.


Norwegian punks Barren Womb releasing a split with Grizzlor and going on first-ever US tour with them (dates, video)

Last year, Norwegian hardcore band Barren Womb released the album The Sun's Not Yellow, It's Chicken. Here's what we said about it:

They've been described as a blend of "hardcore punk with elements of black metal, rock 'n' roll, and country" which should be a familiar description to Kvelertak fans, but the bands don't sound alike as much as they take similar approaches (a big difference is Barren Womb sings in English). Sure, Barren Womb are a hardcore band through and through, and one that couldn't have existed til at least the '80s, but like Kvelertak, many of their influences are as classic as classic rock gets.
Its followup will be a split with Connecticut's Grizzlor, which comes out on March 17 via Riotous Outburst Records (pre-order). You can check out a teaser video for that, and stream Barren Womb's 2014 LP in full, below.

Barren Womb and Grizzlor will also head out on together in Grizzlor's home country after the release. It's Barren Womb's first-ever US tour and ends in NYC on April 4 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

DIS Monthly: January 2015 - Playlist
Jan 28, 2015 7:28am | Drowned In Sound

Every month, since forever-ago, DiS has made a playlist of our favourite tunes of the past few weeks and put them alongside a smattering choice cuts from the month's best albums.

January 2015 was a month of big returns: Sleater-Kinney, Marilyn Manson and Belle & Sebastian to name but three. The latter bunch of Glaswegians guest-edited the site for a week to celebrate the release of their fantastic sort-of-disco (sort of not) new album, which was nice.

Album of the Month

Despite a gorgeous second solo album from Supergrass' Gaz Coombes, a splendid new Panda Bear album, and the wonderfully weird-rock of The Phantom Band warming our why-aren't-they-better-known hearts, DiS' album of the month goes to Viet Cong. As you'll see from the votes from our community, in the monthly dose of 'best album' democracy, it isn't just our staff who love them. But boy, oh boy! do our staff love 'em. They've been single of the week, interviewed at length (with another feature to follow!), and this praise-filled review currently finds itself sandwiched between B&S and Bjork^ in our recommended records section on the frontpage.


Here is January 2015's 20-song, 1 hour and 20 minutes playlist:

East London students launch petition to name new graduate centre after Wiley
Jan 28, 2015 6:34am | Fact Magazine

Students from east London’s Queen Mary University are petitioning their principal to name a new building after Wiley.

A petition on has called for the Bow university’s new graduate centre to be named in the grime icon’s honour, citing his “significant contribution to the field of music”.

The Wiley Graduate Centre would “raise ambitions” in a disadvantaged area of the city, say the campaigners, and would be a “fitting tribute” to the “drive and ambition” of both Wiley and the institution:

“We want the local students to see the Wiley Graduate Centre and believe that they can create their futures by working hard, just as Wiley did. We want to develop the social enterprise work Queen Mary is already committed to doing, and simply see this as an extension of that. We believe that our university has a social responsibility to raise aspirations of those who live in the area, even if they do not attend the university itself.”

What do we think? The Wiley Graduate Centre has a certain ring to it, for sure though it’s not as cool as the proposed statue of him in Bow. Add your name to the 248 signatures so far at

A Florida collector is selling his 60,000 records for $6,000
Jan 28, 2015 6:00am | Fact Magazine

Fancy opening a record store?

A massive collection of 60,000 second hand and sealed records has been put up for sale via online classifieds platform Craigslist for $6,000.

Bought from DJs, producers, record pools and entire stores, the 500-box collection is said to include mainly records from the ’80s and ’90s, some of which are still sealed and none of which have been touched by for more than 10 years.

Too good to be true? The haul is pick-up only from a warehouse in Palm Beach, Florida. No doubt it will appeal to Brazilian businessman Zero Freitas and his desire to buy up all of the worlds records.

See the listing and find out more about the collection on Craigslist.

In related news, someone has launched a Facebook page for flagging up ridiculous vinyl ads on Craigslist.

DiS meets Emil Amos of Holy Sons + video premiere
Jan 28, 2015 4:33am | Drowned In Sound

Emil Amos is a multi-talented, multi-tasking and seemingly multi-armed multi-instrumentalist with multiple musical missions. Perhaps best known as the drummer for Grails and OM, he also plays in the hip-hop-influenced Lilacs & Champagne with fellow Grails member Alex Hall and continues to release heaps of solo music under the name Holy Sons. Last years The Fact Facer was perhaps Holy Sons strongest record to date, blanketing Will Oldham-ish alt-folk melodies in dense, murky and atmospheric layers of psychedelic experimentation. To celebrate his European tour, Drowned In Sound is delighted to unveil the new Holy Sons video for Long Days. We also caught up with Amos to pick his brain about dark humour, prolificacy, cultural appropriation and the meaning of life...

Long Days video premiere:

Where did the cheery Fact Facer cover art of a hanging man come from? Why did you choose it?

Emil Amos: I started collecting clippings and old illustrations to use for collage back when I moved to Portland, Oregon in 1999. At some point I became too busy with making records and videos to continue that tradition as deeply... and now I live in New York where theres really no room to keep it all around. The cover of The Fact Facer comes from an American mystery/detective comic that was issued in the 1940s.

Leonard Cohen is often considered to be the epitome of wrist-slashing misery when in fact hes (in the wo...
