Animal Collective celebrate Bob Dylans birthday with Dont Think Twice, Its All Right remix listen
May 24, 2016 11:58am | Cosequence Of Sound
Bob Dylan turns 75 years old today and Animal Collective are marking the occasion with a new remix. Band members Deakin and Geologist have reworked “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right”, off 1963’s The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.
Here, they turn the Dylan classic into a loopy and jubilant jam, complete with speckles of rainbow synths. “Happy 75th Birthday!” they write in the song’s SoundCloud description. Here’s to many, many more years ahead for the iconic songwriter.
Stream the remix below.
Here’s the original for comparison:
Dylan recently released his latest album of Frank Sinatra covers, Fallen Angels.
Is this Kanye Wests first beats tape?
May 24, 2016 11:45am | Chart Attack
In September 1997, Kanye West was 20 years old. That's the year he dropped out of college and still seven years before he'd release his debut about it. Can you imagine a baby-faced Kanye, not yet filling out his polos, peddling beats by the cassette-full to other struggle rappers? Well, SoundCloud user Trilly Madison believes he's obtained what could be Yeezy's first beat tape. And he bought it for $55 on eBay.
Posted Sunday on KanyeToThe, user mls.louden (Madison) dropped off eight instrumental tracks ripped from a cassette he said he purchased from the online auction site in December 2014. He wanted to know: did he get ripped off? Was this the real thing? The Kanye stan squad sprung into action and found that two of the tracks turned up in Grav's "City to City" and Infamous Syndicate's "What You Do To Me," both songs with production credits for West.
The seller, who goes by the username rod-key, told Genius that he, too, acquired the tape on eBay. He collects rap demos and, in 2012, while scanning the photos that accompanied an auction for a collection of cassettes which supposedly belonged to a deceased Miami record exec, the handwritten label "KANYE'S BEAT SEPT. 97'" caught his eye. He knew this was a find, so he set his bid at $300. The auction ended and he collected his Kanye tape for just 27 bucks.
He ripped the tracks and thought some Kanye superfan might be willing to fund his retirement in exchange for t...

Billie Marten Milk & Honey Video
May 24, 2016 11:21am | StereoGum
Sixteen-year-old Yorkshire folk-rock balladeer Billie Marten makes exceptionally gauzy, sweeping songs. Her latest offering was the gorgeous "Milk & Honey." It has one of the most devastating and simultaneously catchy choruses I've heard in a while: "But all you want is milk/ More than you can drink/ And all you want is honey/ You … More »
The Essential Mood II Swing
May 24, 2016 11:21am | Fact Magazine
For old school house heads of a certain era, the mere mention of Mood II Swing is enough to get the nostalgia flowing.
The duo behind the name, Lem Springsteen and John Ciafone, are true standard-bearers of the time before Discogs, back when you had to read the labels thoroughly to even begin to understand who was producing the tracks and influencing the conversation.
Since the early 90s, under a variety of names including Wall Of Sound, The Club Kidds and Full Swing, Springsteen and Ciafone have made the kind of records that people quietly enthused about to friends, secret weapons to those who stumbled across them, treasured them, and shared them. They didnt do interviews, as was the norm for studio producers at the time, and they didnt go out and DJ or go on tour either. Their voice was heard purely through their prolific outpouring of music on classic labels like Strictly Rhythm, Eightball Records and Nervous.
Steeped in the New York and New Jersey house and hip-hop scenes, and closely mentored by Masters At Work’s “Little” Louie Vega, Mood II Swing’s sound mirrors the tougher Masters At Work and Kerri Chandler dubs of the era that Shelter-style euphoria of gospel garage but with a uniquely percussive syncopation to the groove. It’s that groove which simultaneously built them a big underground fanbase in the UK and helped lay the rhythmic foundations for UK garage, in the same way ...

New Orleans' Sweet Crude is a seven-piece band that includes Alexis Marceaux and Sam Craft (who also play together as Alexis & the Samurai), Sam's brother Jack, and more; and notably they have a strict "no guitars allowed" rule. Also notably, they sing in a mix of English and Cajun French, a dying language in their home state of Louisana.

Wild Beasts announce new album, Boy King, let loose Get My Bang watch
May 24, 2016 10:50am | Cosequence Of Sound
On August 5th, Wild Beasts will put out a new album titled Boy King. The Domino release marks their fifth studio effort following 2014’s Present Tense. It collects 10 tracks, all recorded in Dallas, Texas with renowned producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Explosions in the Sky).
“It became apparent that that guitar almost became the character within the songs, that phallic character, the all-conquering male,” frontman Hayden Thorpe said of the LP. “Im letting my inner Byron fully out, I thought Id tucked him away, but he came screaming back like the Incredible Hulk.”
Apparently, his version of the Incredible Hulk’s also got a strong libido. “I think Boy King is an apocalyptic record,” he added. “Its about swimming in the abyss. When you think about sex, youve got to think about death, theyre one and the same.”
Wild Beasts have given us our first taste of the Boy King with “Get My Bang”, a swaggering cut laced with Thorpe’s sleek falsetto. Check it out above via its accompanying music video, directed by Olivier Groulx.
Additionally, the UK indie rockers have mapped out a lengthy European tour which kicks off next month. Find the dates below the album artwork and tracklist.
