Madeon Accuses Sony Music Of
May 21, 2015 3:40pm | StereoGum
SoundCloud might be a great streaming platform for most of the world, but if you're one of the people in charge of making sure money changes hands with the advent of this new technology, you're probably not a fan. Earlier this month, Sony started taking down the SoundCloud streams of its major artists, and … More »

Shoegaze greats Ride are in the midst of their reunion, having just wrapped a run in North America and are now back in the UK. Yesterday (5/20), Ride recorded a live performance at legendary BBC recording studio Maida Vaile for BBC 6Music. They sound really good, and you can stream the full, hour-long performance below.

Ride will be in Spain next weekend for Primavera Sound and right after that they'll head to NYC for two sold-out shows. They'll be back this fall for two shows at Irving Plaza (September 21 & 22) to which tickets are still available. If you'd like to go for free we're also giving away a pair of tickets to the Irving show of your choice. Entry form, and an updated list of Ride tour dates are below.

Wait, that's not all. We've also got a Ride prize package to give away as well, that includes a red vinyl copy of Ride's OX4 best-of compilation (which came out for Record Store Day) which is signed by the band, as well as a CD copy of the deluxe, expanded edition of of their debut album Nowhere which includes the Today Forever EP, a recording of a 1991 concert and 40-page book. This is a separate contest from the ticket giveaway and entry form is below.

Ghostface Killah Sometimes Mistakes Action Bronson
May 21, 2015 3:11pm | StereoGum
Action Bronson sounds a lot like Ghostface Killah. The comparison used to come up in just about every Bronson review, in part because the resemblance is so strong that some listeners have occasionally confused the two NYC rappers. Turns out one of those confused parties is Ghostface himself. Pitchfork points to a Vlad … More »

Billy Idol took out Broncho (who we caught again in NYC this week) on his last tour, and he'll continue to have cool younger bands open when his current tour hits NYC on May 29 at JBL Live at Pier 97. For that show, he'll have Philly indie rockers Cayetana opening, making for an awesome double bill. Tickets are still available, and we're also giving away pair. You can enter the contest below. Updated show flyer below too.

Cayetana's only other currently announced dates are this Friday (5/22) in Harrisburg, PA with Spill, and a June show in Philly with Worriers. Last year Cayetana put out their great debut album on Tiny Engines, and singer Augusta Koch recently filmed an acoustic WZBC session for opening track "Serious Things Are Stupid." Watch that below.

Juicy J
May 21, 2015 3:05pm | StereoGum
The kids in Rae Sremmurd weren't born when Juicy J started his indestructible career, but somehow it makes perfect sense to hear them on a song together in 2015. Rae Sremmurd guest on "Already," an ode to being faded and horny from Juicy's solid Blue Dream & Lean 2 mixtape. And in the … More »

While Tad Kulber is off touring in Courtney Love's band, his Hold Steady bandmate Craig Finn is currently on the road opening for Jason Isbell, and Craig's also sharing the stage with some interesting people. His current band is Joey Russo (of Furthur, Benevento Russo Duo, Cass McCombs, and much more), Cass McCombs' longtime bassist Jon Shaw, and Josh Kaufman (Josh Ritter, Dawn Landes, Trixie Whitley, Yellowbirds, etc). Craig's tour began last week in Florida, but his first two shows with that band happened in the NYC-area this week. First they hit Long Island's Space at Westbury on Tuesday (5/19) and then Westchester's Capitol Theatre last night (5/20). Tonight (5/21) they're in Asbury Park at the Stone Pony (without Jason Isbell) which is a members only event for Brookdale Public Radio 90.5 The Night. More details at wbjb.org. Updated Craig Finn dates are listed below.

Craig will also return to NYC soon to appear at the IFC Center on June 4, where The 78 Project Movie will be screening. The movie "is a road trip across America to make one-of-a-kind 78rpm records with musicians in their hometowns using a 1930s Presto direct-to-disc recorder. With one microphone. One blank disc. In one 3-minute take." After the screening, Craig will cut a record to 78 himself, in front of a live audience (like Sondre Lerche did with th...


Towkio
May 21, 2015 2:38pm | StereoGum
Towkio is the latest member of Chicago's SaveMoney crew to pop off. His new mixtape .Wav Theory is a turbulent mix of cascading, joyful tracks and tense downers. "Reflection" is one of the latter, as I noted when the song itself dropped, and now it's gotten a video to further explore all that … More »

Hit-Boy
May 21, 2015 2:35pm | StereoGum
Hit-Boy is a production mastermind capable of turning out linear stutter-stunners that always make the rapper ensconced in them sound incredible. Think of "Backseat Freestyle," "Clique" or "Trophies" -- the guy makes beats for rappers to boast over, as if they draw their power from the sound itself. I only recently shook … More »

Chicago bedroom-pop experimentalist J Fernandez is readying his debut album Many Levels Of Laughter, the follow-up to his excellent Memorize Now EP from 2014. We've already heard the MIDI-ridden soother "Read My Mind" and today Fernandez has shared a "Between The Channels," a mumbly, jangling track that occasionally includes bits of a warm, … More »
