South Parks Kanye West parody My Bitch Aint No Hobbit to be released for Record Store Day
Oct 21, 2014 11:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

Long before Lorde ever felt the mighty satirical gaze of South Park, Kanye West has been a favorite target of creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone. Thanks to his colossal ego and occasional overblownedness, West is perpetually ripe for a good old-fashioned spoofing. He was first reimagined as a “gay fish” in the 2009 episode “Fishsticks” and, last year, appeared alongside his “hobbit” wife Kim Kardashian in “The Hobbit.

Now, South Park is once again cracking wise at Yeezy’s expense by releasing a special 7-inch for Record Store Day’s Black Friday event on November 28th. One side contains “My Bitch Ain’t No Hobbit”, the show’s parody of Kanye’s Yeezus closer “Bound 2″. It’s backed by “James Cameron”, in which creators take aim at the equally grandiloquent director and his billion-dollar blockbusters.

(Read: Ranking: Every South Park Song from Worst to Best)

The vinyl comes in the form of a 7-inch picture disc featuring characters from the show. The album’s front cover is above.

In lieu of the actual song, check out cartoon Kanye’s enthusiastic explanation of why Kim K. is definitely not a Hobbit.

Song : Blue Hawaii : Get Happy
Oct 21, 2014 11:37am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Montreal’s Blue Hawaii are streaming a new song “Get Happy” and a double-time edit of the song they have dubbed “Get Happier”. According to the pair, the song has existed since the beginning of the year, but got lost in the shuffle of moving and touring. The original is more softer in presentation, while the edit creates more of a chaotic mood. It is a nice contrast. Stream both below.

Oct 21, 2014 11:35am | Brooklyn Vegan

OBN IIIs in Austin in January (more by Tim Griffin)

We just posted a list of 10 NYC artists we think are worth catching this week at CMJ, but CMJ is also a great time to check out bands from other cities and countries passing through for the multi-venue music fest. Hundreds of artists will be here for shows over the next five days (10/21-25), so if you're feeling overwhelmed about who to see we've narrowed things down to a list of 20 we think you should check out. Of course we'd love for you to come to the official BrooklynVegan showcase at Baby's on Saturday night (10/25) with The Jazz June, Pity Sex, Beach Slang, Cayetana and Sport, but we talked a lot about those bands here and decided to highlight 20 different ones here. Clicking on the artist name takes you to their corresponding page on our NYC Show Calendar with a list of all of their upcoming NYC shows. We also made a Soundcloud playlist featuring songs from all the bands (except Slowdive who are on Rdio) which you can stream below.

Our picks are below...

Gwen Stefani Baby Dont Lie Video
Oct 21, 2014 11:35am | StereoGum

Gwen Stefani’s “Baby Don’t Lie” video is here. Directors Sophie Muller and Weirdcore set Stefani and her dancers against a colorful smattering of green-screened backgrounds not too far removed from the single artwork. When they rewind it back, some of that color seeps into the black-and-white imagery that kicks off the clip. There’s also some Beats Music product placement; Stefani did attend the Apple product launch with Dr. Dre, after all. Watch below.

10 NYC artists to see at CMJ this week
Oct 21, 2014 11:33am | Brooklyn Vegan

PC Worship

Some may not think so, but CMJ is still a festival than brings in folks from out of town: mainly college radio programmers and jocks on mid-semester vacation. While we at BV get excited about bands from out of town (and we have a separate list for that) who are here for the fest, there are also lots of local acts we'd recommend to anyone visiting NYC. Here are 10 that are worth seeing, no matter where you live.

Chief Keef dropped by Interscope
Oct 21, 2014 11:30am | Fact Magazine

The controversial rapper’s stint on a major label might be over.

This certainly seems like a long time coming: Interscope Records has reportedly dropped Chief Keef. It isn’t quite surprising; Keef has had legal issues for years and his relationship with the label always seemed contentious.

Keef and his people tried to keep the label accountable [once Keef moved to Los Angeles)] but Interscope didnt seem interested in dropping a new album. Keefs team tried to have formal meetings but nothing moved, an anonymous source tells AllHipHop.

While Keef’s long-promised Bang 3 has possibly been scuttled earlier, the mostly self-produced Back from the Dead 2 is due out on Halloween. AHH reports that Keef has a new album that will “probably” be released next year through his Glory Boyz Entertainment imprint.

Until any of these releases drops, check out FACT’s rundown of Chief Keef’s weird-and-wonderful releases.

Update: Keef has confirme the news via Twitter, promising that everything will still drop on schedule.


El-P auditions cats for Run the Jewels Meow the Jewels watch
Oct 21, 2014 11:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

With a star-studded list of guest contributors and more than enough funding, rap BFFs El-P and Killer Mike (tka Run the Jewels) have just one more item to check off before beginning work on their Meow the Jewels remix album: find the cats.

Run the Jewels have chronicled the recruiting process in a new video. It mostly breaks down to El-P hilariously rapping at cats and gauging their reaction — which ranges from total disinterest to minor meowing. At one point, he quips, “This is going to be tough. They keep showing me their assholes.”

I won’t spoil whether he finds a Rum Tum Tugger (that’s a Cats reference, folks), but it does make this dog-loving writer re-think his opinion on cats as heartless fiends who will one day drive their owners to madness. Watch it below.

(Ed. Note: If El-P is looking for real talent, CoS Publisher Alex Young’s three cats — Zooey, Dorian, and Maggie — are available for recording in Chicago).

The “Meow the Jewels” Kickstarter page has already raised nearly $60,000 (of an original goal of $42,000), with six more days to go. Any additional profit will go to benefit the families of Eric Garner and Mike Brown.

Meanwhile, Run the Jewels’ sophomore album, RTJ2, arrives on October 28th via Mass Appeal. The 11-track effort eatures collaborations with Rage Against the...


Watch El-P Audition Cats For Meow The Jewels
Oct 21, 2014 11:19am | StereoGum

Meow The Jewels started as a goof, and now it’s gonna be an album. It’s still a goof, obviously — you can’t watch this trailer and expect otherwise. Same goes for the new video of El-P “auditioning” cats at Brooklyn’s BARC Animal Shelter: “No? Nothing? Do you like rap?” El asks one cat who seems unimpressed with the beats he’s hearing. Ultimately, El decides, “I don’t feel like the project’s completely come together yet.” However, even though these particular animals might not be right for this particular project, El suggests that anyone with “the wherewithal and the love” come to BARC and adopt. That’s not a goof. Watch.

Jerry David DeCicca of Black Swans released a solo LP, made a new video, playing shows
Oct 21, 2014 10:59am | Brooklyn Vegan

Jerry David DeCicca has produced albums for cult folk legend Ed Askew, and is also a member of the band Black Swans, who also toured with Ed in recent years. Earlier this year, he put out his debut solo album, Understanding Land, which featured collaborations with Will Oldham (aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), The Breeders' Kelley Deal, and Bob Dylan/Neil Young collaborator Spooner Oldham. Its track "Another Bad Dream," a soft early '70s-style folk song, was just given the video treatment (dir. Matt Bauer) and that premieres in this post.

Jerry also has two shows coming up, one in Philly and the other in Brooklyn on Saturday, November 15 at Union Pool with the new project of Purehorsehair's Garrett Devoe. That's an afternoon show (3 PM) and takes place before the Holy Sons / Elisa Ambrogio show happening at the venue that night.

Full tour schedule with the new video, below...
