May 2, 2016 4:39pm | Brooklyn Vegan
The last time Montreal's Besnard Lakes were in town, they ended up being the only high profile band to actually play the day of Winter Storm Jonas. Hopefully snow drifts will not be an issue when the band play NYC again as part of a short East Coast tour this summer...

Swizz Beatz says new DMX album features Kanye West and Dr. Dre
May 2, 2016 4:17pm | Fact Magazine
Will this be the most exciting collection material from DMX in a decade?
DMX is reportedly working on a comeback album sorts and, according to Swizz Beatz, it will have contributions from Dr. Dre and Kanye West. (And, perhaps, Swizz’s son Egypt?)
X’s last official album was 2012’s underwhelming Undisputed, but it’s been almost ten years since he’s put out anything substantial. (It should be noted that Swizz quibbled over the authenticity of last year’s Redemption of the Beast.)
Aside from these interesting collabs – it’ll be his first time ever working with Dre; X and West haven’t worked together since 2003’s Dogs Out, a truly bizarre confluence of both artists’ styles that still totally works – this is good news for DMX fans. Earlier this year, it was reported that the Yonkers rapper was found not breathing at a Ramada Inn in his hometown after an alleged overdose.
DMX’s classic ‘How’s It Going Down?’ was interpolated on Drake’s brand new album Views. Check out our breakdown of that, X’s ‘What These Bitches Want?’ and the other samples on the album.
M.I.A. says her last album is finished, but she cant tour the US
May 2, 2016 4:04pm | Fact Magazine
The singer suggests visa issues may delay the album.
The album that M.I.A. has been teasing for over a year with videos, singles and demos is finally finished. The singer shared the news on Twitter, but explained that the release is somewhat out of her hands.
“I am handing my last LP in to my American label this week. It’ll be up to them if its released. I don’t have visa 4 states to promote or spk!,” she wrote in a tweet saying she will not be able to tour the US as of now.
“Can’t tour the US without a visa — might have to start writing songs 4 DJ Khaled and Selene [sic] Gomez to get heard,” she wrote after.
M.I.A. has had no lack of new songs recently, but it’s unclear which, if any, will appear on her new album. She’s released one-off singles with music videos including ‘Borders’ and last month’s ‘Rewear It’. She’s also dropped tracks in a more off-the-cuff manner including the recent Lion King-sampling ‘MIA OLA’.

Terrence Malicks Voyage of Time finally receives a release date
May 2, 2016 3:40pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Now that this year’s mildly disappointing Knight of Cups has drifted slowly behind him (and most filmgoers), director Terrence Malick has turned his attention toward the half dozen projects he has left to sort out. One of them is the long, long, long gestating Voyage of Time documentary that has been soaking in the proverbial ether for decades.
As The Playlist points out, a recent press release by IMAX has the film set to hit screens on October 7th of this year, which means we’ll at least be seeing one of the film’s two cuts — the 40-minute IMAX edit featuring Brad Pitts narration. However, it remains to be seen when we’ll catch the 35mm feature length version with Cate Blanchetts narration.
Here’s the official synopsis:
VOYAGE OF TIME is a celebration of the universe, displaying the whole of time, from its start to its final collapse. This film examines all that occurred to prepare the world that stands before us now: science and spirit, birth and death, the grand cosmos and the minute life systems of our planet.
Recent Oscar winner Ennio Morricone hopped on board last fall to score the film, reuniting with the director for the first time since their 1978 collaboration on Days of Heaven.
For a taste of what to expect, revisit the documentary’s partial inclusion in Malick’s 2011 tour de force, The Tree of Life....

Space Jam 2 in the works with LeBron James, Fast & Furious director Justin Lin
May 2, 2016 3:33pm | Fact Magazine
Bugs Bunny to hit em high once more.
Twenty years after the release of Michael Jordan-Bugs Bunny buddy flick Space Jam, a sequel is finally in the making. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the follow-up will star two-time NBA championship winner LeBron James and will be directed by Fast & Furious 6 and Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin.
There have been rumors circulating since last summer that this picture would soon be in development. In July 2015, Warner Brothers and James inked a deal for his SpringHill Entertainment group right around the time that the studio renewed their trademark on the Space Jam brand.
While it’s certain the Looney Tunes will be back for the second leg of this adventure, there is no word if the Monstars are still the bad guys or who will fill the Bill Murray role (maybe Bill Murray?). We might as well speculate, though, that like the original, this one will have its own killer soundtrack.
And in case you forgot, the Space Jam website from 1996 has been completely untouched.

KRS-One defends Afrika Bambaataa against sexual assault allegations
May 2, 2016 3:18pm | Fact Magazine
For me, if you keep it hip-hop, nothing can be taken away from Afrika Bambaataa“.
Hip-hop figureheads have gradually weighed in on Afrika Bambaataa’s recent child molestation allegations since they were made last month. As Complex points out, KRS-One recently defended the hip-hop pioneer, saying whatever comes of the allegations it shouldn’t tarnish the influence Bambaataa has had on the genre.
If you want to dig into dudes personal life and accusations thats being made and so on … personally … I dont give a fuck, he said in a now-deleted interview on the Drink Champs podcast, adding: “If somebody was harmed or whatever, yall gotta deal with that shit … that dont stop what you did for hip-hop.
The rapper didn’t take a side on whether he believes the allegations.
“It dont take away none of it. History is history. But deal with that. Thats personal,” he said.
Bambaataa recently dismissed the accusations, which began with Bronx politician Ronald Savage and have caused three other alleged victims to speak out.
Its people thats trying to sell a book, he said, referring to Savage’s memoir that brought up the alleged assault.

Weaves share new video for One More, announce US dates watch
May 2, 2016 3:10pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Drake isn’t the only musician reppin’ Toronto these days. After delivering one of the brightest sets at Iceland Airwaves last year, indie rockers Weaves are gearing up to put out their debut album on June 17th. Already we’ve heard two singles off the self-titled Kanine Records release, “One More” and “Candy”. Today, the four-piece continues to promote the LP with the video for “One More”.
Directed by the band’s own Morgan Waters, the clip captures the band on their first tour across the states. Singer Jasmyn Burke steals the show as a robe-clad cheerleader waving shiny pom-poms in the middle of the desert. Waters talked about the visual, telling FADER:
“This was our first American tour and we didn’t know if we were going to kill each other, being stuck in a van together the whole time. We shot the video ourselves in Rock City, New Mexico in the middle of our drive from Toronto to Los Angeles. We’re Canadians so we had to get to know the desert the old fashioned way: with pom poms and a video camera. I filmed Jasmyn from the back of the van as we both yelled at Spencer to drive the right speed while Zach did playback and offered moral support. We smelled burning and assumed it was the smell of America but the mechanic told us the emergency brake was stuck.”
In addition to the clip, Weaves have also expanded their summer tour with a batch of new Eu...
