Stream: Julian Casablancas new solo album Tyranny
Sep 19, 2014 9:23am | Cosequence Of Sound

The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas will release his sophomore solo album, Tyranny, on September 23rd via his own Cult Records. In anticipation, the album is streaming in full below (via Rolling Stone).

The follow-up to 2009’s Phrazes for the Young is the first by Casablancas with his backing band The Voidz, which includes Jacob “Jake” Bercovici (bass guitar, synthesizers), Amir Yaghmai (guitar), and Jeramy “Beardo” Gritter (guitar).

In a recent promotional piece, Casablancas says he and The Voidz are dabbling in “an in-between area in music that hasnt been explored.” As Gritter contends, “He wanted you to have the ability to play technical stuff, but also be able to thrash on three chords. So, for me, this was the band I needed to be in.”

“Ive always felt like the best cool things are never in their time, it always takes years,” adds Casablancas, before using Slayer as a metaphor. He goes deeper, saying, “I just feel like art musically, if you can do something really good and make it popular, you can inspire a lot and that parallel in other areas in the world.”

Speaking to NME regarding the 12-track album’s title, Casablancas said, “Tyranny has come in many forms throughout history. Now, the goo...


Trust Fall releasing debut LP (stream a track)
Sep 19, 2014 9:19am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Virginia Beach's Trust Fall are releasing their debut album, Secret Keeper (which follows a few splits and EPs), on November 18 via Flannel Gurl and its new single "Dampé Mimicry" is premiering in this post. Trust Fall echo the raw '90s post-hardcore of anything from Drive Like Jehu to I Hate Myself. They do it well, and it's nice to hear a band going after the darker sounds of that era. Check it out, with the LP artwork and album trailer, below.

Hear Another New James Blake Song Premiered On BBC Radio 1
Sep 19, 2014 9:18am | StereoGum

Lately, James Blake has been doing regular DJ sets on BBC’s Radio 1, which we can add to the long lists of reasons that living in America is stupid and that we should all be in England instead. Blake has been using those shows, in part, to debut new songs. Blake’s most recent set was last night, and it included a whole lot of good music. It also had Blake interviewing Connan Mockasin and playing a remix that mashed UGK’s OutKast collab “Int’l Players Anthem” up with is own Airhead collab “Pembroke.” And he also played an untitled instrumental track of his own, a foggy low-key dance number that sounded something like an itchier Burial. The track plays near the 1:51 mark of the show, and you can stream the whole thing here.

Tory Lanez Mama Told Me (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 19, 2014 9:07am | StereoGum

One of the last things the promising young rapper/producer Tory Lanez says on “Mama Told Me” is “I’m a rich young nigga from the 416,” and yeah, his delivery is bound to remind you of Toronto’s most famous hip-hop export, especially when matched with the booming yet ethereal production he crafted alongside Ryan Hemsworth and Play Picasso. But there’s a frenetic urgency lingering underneath Lanez’s bars here that reminds me less of Drake than of one of Lanez’s early supporters, Meek Mill — fitting considering “Mama Told Me” feels both dreamy and nightmarish. The verbal jabs here unfurl in quick succession, and their cumulative effect knocks me out. Hear the song, from his upcoming Lost Cause project, below.

Band 2 Band: Tokyo Police Club give life advice and get banned from Chart Attack
Sep 19, 2014 8:56am | Chart Attack

Upon request from the band (there was no request from the band) I am supposed to dedicate a few sentences of this post to Goldie. Gone but not forgotten, she was only one year old when Dave and Graham woke up, devastated to find their surrogate child belly up in its fishbowl. In respect, they played a round of Band 2 Band, pulling questions out of the very fishbowl that Goldie lived so richly in.

Tokyo Police Club have been around for a while (9 years! That's 42 in indie years!), and after all the interviews they've been through, somehow no one has asked them to give advice for the children of our world and no one has banned them from their website forever. We just did both. Goodbye, Tokyo Police Club. No more Nickelback for this publication.

Tokyo Police Club's new album Forcefield is available on iTunes through Dine Alone Records. Listen to it below.

Iranian fans in viral video for Pharrells Happy sentenced to jail and 91 lashes
Sep 19, 2014 8:55am | Fact Magazine

Six youths handed suspended sentences for “hurting public chastity” with fan-made music video.

The Iranian fans arrested for appearing in a viral video dancing to Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ have been sentenced to jail time and 91 lashes each.

The video, which featured three men and three unveiled women singing and dancing in the streets of Tehran, was watched more than 150,000 times views before authorities arrested the group for breaking Irans strict vulgarity laws, which ban public dancing.

The group was found guilty of participation in the making of a vulgar clip and illegitimate relations between members” in court on Wednesday. Five were handed six-month suspended jail sentences, while the director received a one-year suspended prison term, and the whole group was told they would receive 91 lashes each.

However, the suspended sentences mean that the verdict will not be carried out unless a similar offence is committed in the same period of time, according to the group’s attorney.

The brother of one of the video’s stars told the Telegraph that their confessions on state television were “outrageous”. Siavash Taravati said: The IRIBs (Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting) action in showing the ‘confession’ of my sister and her friends (…) is just outrageous.

Apparently they first arrest people without any charge or civ...

Alvvays Next Of Kin Video
Sep 19, 2014 8:50am | StereoGum

“Next Of Kin” is one of the many highlights off of Alvvays’ very pleasant self-titled debut album, and now it has an equally pleasant video to go along with it. Directed by Connor Gilhooly, the clip takes a collage-style approach, filled with what look like sun-drenched postcards from the beach, abstract watercolors, and lead singer and guitarist Molly Rankin dancing around in stop-motion jitteriness. Watch below.
