Sturgill Simpson touring, playing Bowery Ballroom & MHOW
Oct 29, 2014 7:59am | Brooklyn Vegan

Sturgill Simpson at Joe's Pub in July (more by Chris La Putt)

Earlier this year, country singer Sturgill Simpson released his new album Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, and he's continuing to play shows in support of it at increasingly larger venues. A few months ago he opened for Pokey LaFarge at Bowery Ballroom, and in early 2015 he'll return to headline that venue and another of its size. He plays Bowery Ballroom on February 11 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 12. Tickets for both shows go on sale Saturday (11/1) at noon with an AmEx presale starting today (10/29) at noon.

Sturgill has a bunch of other shows coming up, but his only other 2015 date announced so far is Indio, CA's Stagecoach Festival. Presumably more will be added, but all currently announced dates are listed below...

Beck returns to Conan to perform Wasting Light watch
Oct 29, 2014 7:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

When last Beck performed on Conan, he was there to honor George Harrison with a cover of “Wah-Wah”. Last night, he returned to the TBS late night program to support his own music — specifically, the release of his latest solo album, Morning Phase. Below, replay his performance of “Wasting Light”.

In addition to Morning Phase, Beck recently released an all-star cast recording of his sheet music album, Song Reader. He performed material from both releases during the premiere episode of Austin City Limits’ 40th season, which you can revisit here.




Watch Daniel Radcliffe Rap The Shit Out Of Blackalicious Alphabet Aerobics On The Tonight Show
Oct 29, 2014 7:50am | StereoGum

This must be late-’90s underground rap week. First, we’ve got El-P doing his best work ever with RTJ2, and Harry Potter’s out here doing a Blackalicious song on The Tonight Show. If Shabaam Sahdeeq was ever going to stage a comeback, it better be now. “Alphabet Aerobics” is a classically gimmicky rap workout from Bay Area duo Blackalicious’ 1999 EP A2G, and it features the Gift Of Gab focusing on one letter at a time — “Artificial amateurs aren’t at all amazing,” etc. — and speeding up his cadence as the beat keeps getting faster. And when he was on The Tonight Show last night, Radcliffe rapped the whole thing, with actual late-’90s underground rap overlords the Roots backing him up and Fallon holding big cards that helpfully let everyone know what letter he’s rapping. It’s a ridiculous and pointless and deeply impressive feat, and you can watch it below.

Watch Daniel Radcliffe attempt to rap Blackalicious tongue-twisting Alphabet Aerobics
Oct 29, 2014 7:36am | Fact Magazine

That overachieving Potter bastard.

The annoyingly affable Daniel Radcliffe was on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night talking about his love of hip-hop (um, Eminem and Plan B).

The host challenged him to prove his professed knack for memorising lyrics with a performance Blackalicious’s tongue-twisting ‘Alphabet Aerobics’, so he got up there and did it, with backing from The Roots as per.

See how he did in the video below, and check out Dev Hynes’ Blood Orange performance on the same episode, which featured some major choreography and an appearance from Dita Von Teese.


Blood Orange makes his TV debut with stunning performance on Kimmel watch
Oct 29, 2014 7:35am | Cosequence Of Sound

Dev Hynes has been operating in the music industry for nearly a decade, but only recently found mainstream success as Blood Orange. Fittingly, it’s under this moniker that Hynes gave his network TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night. Making the most of the spotlight, he performed stunning renditions of “It Is What It Is” and “Time Will Tell”, accompanied by Friends singer and girlfriend Samantha Urbani and several choreographed dancers. Watch the replay below.

The performance came in support of Blood Orange’s 2013 album, Cupid Deluxe. He also recently scored James Franco’s latest film, Palo Alto, and has been collaborating with a number of artists, appearing on UK R&B act Kindness’ new record as well as the Arthur Russell tribute album from the AIDS charity Red Hot Organization.

If there's a way to end a five-day music festival, when you're beyond tired and maybe in a funny mental space, and somehow it's 2:30 in the morning...it's seeing Fat White Family. Which is how our 15-hour BV takeover of Baby's All Right on Saturday of CMJ (10/25 which included a day party and official evening showcase) ended. It didn't even matter that they had played hours earlier as part of our day show, they brought the insanity all over again. The day show had crazier lights and fog and opened with a psych jam, but this one was definitely more casual and got right into their best songs. The last minute late crowd was understandably not as big as the day crowd (we announced Fat Whites' 2:30am set after midnight), but almost everyone who was there was going wild, very wild, for the Fat Whites. Beers were flung to and fro, bodies atop the crowd and at least one couple was slow dancing in the middle of all this. The band was going wild too, and as he's been known to do, frontman Lias Saudi let it all hang out. (Though one helpful audience member hilariously pulled his briefs back up.) The crowd included J. Spaceman of Spirtualized (who played NYU with the Joshua Light Show earlier in the evening) and Har Mar Superstar who, at one point, joined Fat Whites on stage. They finished their set wit...

Samantha Urbani also lends her vocals to Blood Orange’s TV debut.

Prolific pop dude Dev Hynes appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night to perform ‘It Is What It Is’ from 2013′s Cupid Deluxe, making the most of his first TV performance by bringing along a cast of dancers to back up his own impressive choreography.

Striptease queen Dita Von Teese was also on hand to hold up his sheet music (as if he needed it) during the shredtastic guitar solo.

Watch the performance below. Meanwhile, check out the rejected Britney Spears demos Hynes revealed a while back and hear his contribution to a new album of Arthur Russell covers.

Our First eBook: Get a free Mercury Prize '14 guide
Oct 29, 2014 6:09am | Drowned In Sound

Tonight is the night! After 12 days of focussing your attention on each of this year's nominated albums, the wait to find out who has won this year's Barclaycard Album of the Year Mercury prize is almost over.

Will it be Damon? FKA twigs? Will Jungle become this generation's Klaxons? Or will Jungle become this generation's Klaxons? Or perhaps a big upset from Young Fathers, Polar Bear, East India Youth or GoGo Penguin could occur? Quite frankly, given music's answer to the Booker/Turner prize's track record, we really don't have a clue, but we've really enjoyed revisiting each of the nominees this year, and finding out about them all in a little more detail.

The past 12 days have been in partnership with Naim Audio's new wireless music system, mu-so, and to top it all off they suggested we compile all of the editorial into an eBook. What a 'novel' idea, we hollered, and having never done one before, this first was an interesting exercise. Sign up to our mailing list (if you haven't already done so entering our competition to win a mu-so + Mercury-related prizes) and we'll send you the free eBook this afternoon, ahead of tonight's award show, which is being broadcast on More4 and we'll also have an "irreverent" live-blog on DiS of all the action.

Here is a form to join the mailing list:

You can of course read all of the editorial compiled over here on Di...

Taylor Swift set to become the first act to sell 1 million albums in a week on three occasions
Oct 29, 2014 5:56am | Fact Magazine

The country-gone-pop star is heading for a million sales of 1989 in its first week on release.

Taylor Swift’s new album you’ve seen it around, right? is now virtually guaranteed to sell at least one million copies in its debut week of release, a feat which would make it the singer’s third million-selling first week album sales in a row, following 2010′s Speak Now (1.05 million) and 2012′s Red (1.21 million).

It would also make 1989 just the 19th album to sell a million in its debut week since Nielsen SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991. Sales will be announced next Wednesday, November 5, when she’s also expected to nail her fourth number one album. Stay tuned for FACT’s review of 1989, Swift’s poppiest effort yet.

In a year when not a single artist album has gone platinum so far, it’s a boost for the record industry at the very least. The two top-sellers of 2014 are the Frozen soundtrack (3.2 million) and Beyonce’s self-titled album (787,000), both of which actually came out in 2013.

Here’s Taylor Swift mashed up with Aphex Twin. [via Billboard]
