Jack Ü Release Surprise Album Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü
Feb 26, 2015 11:05pm | StereoGum
Skrillex and Diplo have just released their debut album as Jack Ü. Their new production team-up got their start last year, and made waves with their Kiesza-featuring lead single “Take Ü There,” which recently got an awesome remix from Missy Elliott. All day on Thursday, the two of them DJed on a livestream as a […]

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

This Will Destroy You, Sannhet, Planning For Burial @ Saint Vitus
Epic post-rockers This Will Destroy You conclude their BrooklynVegan-presented two-night stand at Saint Vitus tonight. Different openers both tonights, tonight being fellow post-rockers Sannhet and the gloomy Planning for Burial.

Sleater-Kinney, Lizzo @ Terminal 5
Sleater-Kinney aren't on some nostalgia reunion -- they're picking up right where they left off with a killer new record and this is tour is as much about that as it is about old favorites. Tonight's the second of two sold-out shows at T5 shows.

Radical Dads, Dead Stars, Doe, Life Size Maps, Left & Right @ Shea Stadium
Couldn't get tickets to Sleater-Kinney? Radical Dads (who probably went to T5 last night) are Brooklyn's leading torch-bearers of classic '90s-style indie rock. They celebrate their terrific new album, Universal Coolers, tonight with a great bunch of openers, including UK band Doe.

Museum of Love, Oneida, Blondes @ Bowery Ballroom
For those used to Pat Mahoney behind the drum kit (LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip), seeing him behind a mic might be a bit of a shock. With Museum of Love, he's a confident frontman with a nice, soulful voice -- which may also be a shock. Tonight's show has...

Tools new album is progressing nicely according to Maynard James Keenan
Feb 26, 2015 8:58pm | Fact Magazine

Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan has provided an update on the progress of the band’s long-awaited fifth studio album.

“I’ve been making regular trips to LA to check on the writing progress of my Tool brethren,” Keenan wrote on Instagram, below a photo of the band in a recording studio. “Things a progressing nicely. Slowly, but definitely progressing. Nothing is recorded yet, but the guys are confident that the pieces are coming together swimmingly and will be ready for me to begin writing melodies and content soon.”

He continued: “I’m as anxious to get this album completed as everyone else. But as history will show, you can’t rush these gents. Patience is Gold in this Sound Mine. In the meantime, as always, other things are simultaneously occurring. Life is too short not to create something with every breath we draw.”

Tools new album is progressing nicely
Feb 26, 2015 8:17pm | Cosequence Of Sound

It seems every time there’s a positive development on the Tool album front, it’s immediately shot down or backtracked by the band. Just last week video surfaced of guitarist Adam Jones in the studio with Motörhead, but Maynard James Keenan disputed Tool was there to record.

Now, though, Keenan has offered a progress report on Instagram. He says the album is “progressing nicely” and he’s been making regular trips to Los Angeles to check in on the writing process. “Nothing is recorded yet, but the guys are confident that the pieces are coming together swimmingly and will be ready for me to begin writing melodies and content ‘soon,’ he adds, “I’m as anxious to get this album completed as everyone else.”

Tool’s last studio album 10,000 Days was released in 2006. In the meantime, check out drummer Danny Carey’s new collaboration with Mastodon’s Brent Hinds, the Legend of the Seagullmen, or watch him jam out with Neil Peart and Stewart Copeland.



Kanye West Publicly Apologizes To Beck (And Bruno Mars)
Feb 26, 2015 6:00pm | StereoGum
Kanye West has officially told Beck that’s he’s sorry: “I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, I’m sorry Beck,” he tweeted earlier today. Does this mean it’s over? Please? After Kanye called Beck out on his so-called “artistry” following his win over Beyonce for the Album Of The Year Grammy, he’s spent the past […]



Kanye West publicly apologizes to Beck for Grammys incident
Feb 26, 2015 5:57pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Kanye West has taken to his Twitter account to publicly apologize to Beck for his behavior and comments at this year’s Grammy Awards.

As you’ll recall, West walked up on stage while Beck accepted his Album of the Year award, apparently ready to interrupt his speech as he had done years before to Taylor Swift at the MTV VMAs. Though he waved off the incident with a smile, he later commented that “Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé.”

Now, the controversial rapper has reached out to make amends:

I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, Im sorry Beck.

— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 26, 2015

For his part, Beck was never too offended by West’s actions. I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody, he told US Weekly.

But West wasn’t done; he went on to apologize to Bruno Mars, whom he has repeatedly dissed in his infamous live show rants. He even offered Mars a spot on a track produced in collaboration with Puff Daddy and 88 Keys, which apparently has Tyler, the Creator lined up to direct the video!

I also want to publicly apologize to Bruno Mars, I used to hate on him but I really respect what he does as an artist.

Wand share "Reaper Invert" from new album, expand tour (dates, streams)
Feb 26, 2015 5:34pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Wand are offering up another dose of their forthcoming album, Golem which is out March 17 via In the Red. Set to a martial, stomping beat and thick analogue synth drone, "Reaper Invert" is a superior slab of psych. Says guitarist Cory Hanson:

We wanted to make a song like if 'Fat of the Land' was slowed down to 33. I can remember recording it...a little bit. Adding a synth that mimicked the sound of rustling leaves in the left ear. Chris said, 'that's some artsy shit.' We were destroying his perfectly balanced mix, which was pretty exciting. Daniel laid down some nasty spaghetti-western style guitar which I was stoked on. For this song we tuned the low E string to C because it makes the guitars sound trashy, like KoRn or something. Maybe we should get 7 strings? Someday (sigh).
Listen to "Reaper Invert" below and Golem is out March on In the Red.

It won't be long till Wand are back in NYC when their tour with Babes stops for two shows: Baby's All Right on March 28 with Scully (tickets) and Mercury Lounge on March 29 with Honey (tickets). They've added a lot more tour dates since we last posted, and all are listed below...

NYC dance roundup: Rone, Nadastrom, Fort Romeau, Eskmo, Obey City, Psychemagik, Future Brown, Leon Vynehall, more
Feb 26, 2015 5:03pm | Brooklyn Vegan

As always, there's a ton of good electronic music to experience live in NYC, including two great shows tonight (2/26). We don't get a chance to post about all of it, so here's a roundup of some good upcoming shows that we haven't talked about yet.

One of tonight's shows is Output's weekly INPUT party, headlined in the man room by Detroit house vet MK. Joining him are Detroit techno originator Kevin Saunderson and Justin Miller. In the venue's Panther Room it's LA-via-DC duo Nadastrom (aka Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom), who just released their self-titled debut album on Friends of Friends. Listen to "House Shoes" (ft. Nina K) from that album below. Tickets are available.

Also tonight at Verboten it's a stacked lineup with Sweater Beats (who opened for Chance the Rapper in NYC two nights ago), Drake remixer Kastle, and the NYC debut of LA duo Vindata. Tickets are available.

Moving on from tonight, Paris/Berlin producer Rone returned earlier this month with the followup to 2012's Tohu Bohu. It's called Creatures and it's out now on InFiné. You an watch the animated video for its song "Sing Song" below.

Rone has dates coming up, including a US release party for the album on May 29 at Good Room in NYC with solid local support from FaltyDL. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates at his website.

Radioheads Jonny Greenwood is recording an album in India
Feb 26, 2015 4:58pm | Fact Magazine

Greenwood has been working on a record with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur in India.

Speaking to The Sunday Guardian, the Radiohead guitarist revealed that he and other musicians have been working out of the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. “We’ve been living here for nearly three weeks and recording an album here, in the fort,” he said. “The Maharaja allowed us use of the fort, and we’ve basically been living here with 12 Indian musicians and we’ve made a record.” According to The Sunday Guardian, the record incorporates “Arabic, Indian and western music.”

Greenwood continued: “It’s been amazing, actually, working with Indian musicians. They have such a different energy and enthusiasm for music. It’s just, it’s part of life here, it feels, rather than just being an occupation. It’s different; there’s music everywhere. Like when we’re playing and recording or rehearsing with these musicians, when they take a break, they go and play more. That’s not true in England. We just take a break. But here, it’s just this urge to make music, and it’s really inspiring.”

Earlier this month, Greenwood revealed that Radiohead’s new album was “coming along nicely,” with the band to enter the studio again in March. According to the guitarist, t...

Jonny Greenwood recording new album in India
Feb 26, 2015 4:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound

In an interview with The Sunday Guardian, Jonny Greenwood revealed that he’s currently holed up in a fort in India recording with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and a dozen local artists.

“We’ve been living here for nearly three weeks and recording an album here, in the [Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur],” the Radiohead guitarist said. “The Maharaja allowed us use of the fort, and we’ve basically been living here with 12 Indian musicians and we’ve made a record.” Greenwood had just performed with the troupe at the World Sacred Spirit Festival, where they tested the material live before heading to the Fort studio to record a mix of “Arabic, Indian and western music.”

“It’s been amazing, actually, working with Indian musicians,” Greenwood adding, saying the local culture makes music a part of life “rather than just being an occupation. It’s different; there’s music everywhere. Like when we’re playing and recording or rehearsing with these musicians, when they take a break, they go and play more. That’s not true in England.” He went on to say that watching the musicians work has been particularly inspiring. “Some of the musicians are so young, it’s great. One of the dholak players, he’s 16, and I just sit and watch him play and learn so much from how he thinks about musi...
