Hear Diplo Debut Jack Us Kiesza Collaboration Take U There At Mad Decent Block Party
Aug 29, 2014 11:48am | StereoGum

Jack U is the EDM wonder-twins super-team of Diplo and Skrillex. Though they’ve been recording together lately, their music only seems to exist in the form of tracks that Diplo plays during festival DJ sets. One of those tracks is “Take U There,” a collaboration with Kiesza, the singer behind the monster house-pop anthem “Takeaway.” Diplo played it during a recent Mad Decent Block Party, and a live recording has since made its way to the internet. This probably isn’t the ideal way to hear the song, but it’s fast and catchy and insistent, and it will probably feel like the end of the world to anyone who didn’t like Grimes’ “Go.” You should probably familiarize yourself now, since there’s a decent chance this song will be inescapable in a few months. Check out the live recording below.


Riff Raff to Sam Smith: thanks for cutting me out, you chubby little f**k factory
Aug 29, 2014 11:45am | Fact Magazine

The FACT Singles Club has speculated about Sam Smith and the illuminati in the past, and now it seems Riff Raff is fighting the system too.

After Sam Smith cut Riff Raff out of a photo on his Instagram, the Mad Decent-signed rapper came back with the following tweet. And nothing was the same:

Riff Raff To Sam Smith: Your Face Is Super Huge
Aug 29, 2014 11:23am | StereoGum

This past Sunday, Riff Raff was Katy Perry’s date to the VMAs. They wore matching denim leisurewear, an apparent tribute to the outfits that Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears had worn to the show during the peak teenpop era, and they looked terrifying. Both of them were seated in the front row, so the world got to see plenty of reaction shots. Sam Smith was also sitting nearby, and Riff, Perry, Smith, and Charli XCX posed together for a few I-guess-this-is-what-pop-music-is-now photos. Smith made the controvsersial decision to post one of those photos on Instagram, cropping Riff Raff’s terrible fanged visage out of it, and he thus incurred Riff’s wrath. Here’s what Riff Raff wrote on Twitter: “THANKS FOR CUTTiNG ME OUT OF THE PiCTURE U CHUBBY LiTTLE FUCK FACTORY P.S. YOUR FACE iS SUPER HUGE @samsmithworld.” Seriously. “Chubby little fuck factory.” If I could be as funny as Riff Raff on Twitter, I would probably have an SNL writing job by now.


Video Rewind: Led Zeppelin joins Foo Fighters at Wembley Stadium
Aug 29, 2014 11:17am | Cosequence Of Sound

Dave Grohl called Foo Fighters June 2008 performance at Wembley Stadium “the greatest fucking night in the band’s life,” and for good reason. Riding high following the release of 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, Grohl and co. cemented their place as one of rock’s all-time greatest bands with two sold-out concerts at the London stadium, featuring audiences of 85,000-plus.

It was the second of the two nights that proved most special, however. “We knew from the beginning this wasn’t going to be any other show,” Grohl commented before welcoming John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page to the stage. With Grohl on drums and Taylor Hawkins handling lead vocals, Led Zeppelins founding members proceeded to perform “Rock and Roll” and “Ramble On”.

It proved not only to be the definitive moment of Foo’s career, but the closest thing we’ve seen to a Zeppelin reunion ever since. Revisit the historic moment below.

This Weeks Top 4 Music Videos: Grimes, Chad VanGaalen and more
Aug 29, 2014 11:09am | Chart Attack
Watch the best music videos of the week, fresh from the YouTube oven.

Chad VanGaalen, "Monster"

" amateur cryptozoologist's wildest dreams. Or, the beta design for an extremely dark Pokémon game. "

Chad drew for us.

Grimes, "Go"

(watch at MuchMusic)

"She's said that the energetic clip was their "take on Dante's Inferno" with 'circles of hell [that] reflect more contemporary issues.'"

The devil's in the details.

Shabazz Palaces, "#CAKE"

"There's no story for the marathon man or the giant faces, bodies and snake he encounters during his tour of abandoned buildings, but the energy crackling off the composition of the images is enough to mesmerize."

An excellent entry in the sci-fi/hip-hop canon.

Pional, "It's All Over"

"Every frame of the video, from the pre-party party to the party to the tragedy, displays different styles of post-production animation."

Painted party.

This Weeks 5 Best Songs: Jennifer Castle, Deafheaven, and more
Aug 29, 2014 11:07am | Chart Attack
Play these songs during your office's designated music hour. It's worth it, we promise.

Jennifer Castle, "Nature"

 "The tender, soaring folk full of melancholy and wit feels like a relic, but with too much singular personality to be just some curio."

Darkside, "Gone Too Soon"

"'Gone Too Soon' knows what it is from the beginning: oil-slick funk casting a long a thick shadow across Jaar's dismal mutter, a jam session of distorted bongos and paranoid licks, approaching a sunrise."

Deafheaven, "From The Kettle Onto The Coil"

"Like their breakout album Sunbather (one of the albums that defined 2013), the operative words seems to be "woosh," but never without a few twists."

Bobby Shmurda, "Hot N*gga (Reggae Mix)"

"...the New York rapper's song has the world dancing in a way that transcends Vine memes: The proof is in the remix, featuring dancehall legends Elephant Man and Junior Reid as well as the still-breaking-out Mavado."

Old and Weird, "Am I Dumb"

What I Saw by Old and Weird

"Like early Happy Mondays missing its Xanax, Old and Weird trying to e...

Rivers Cuomo getting a sitcom about his life on Fox; Weezer streaming clip of new song ft. Best Coast
Aug 29, 2014 10:56am | Brooklyn Vegan

Weezer at Firefly 2014 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)

The story of Weezer's Rivers Cuomo extended break from being a famous rock frontman to attend Harvard University is now getting turned into a sitcom on Fox. Deadline reports:

Psych creator Steve Franks has teamed with rock musician Rivers Cuomo for DeTour, a single-camera comedy inspired by the Weezer frontman's real-life experiences. The project, from 20th Century Fox TV, has landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment. DeTour centers on a thirtysomething rock star who, unable to rationalize his success and worried that he may not have the tools to repeat it, walks away from the spotlight at the height of his fame in an effort to rediscover the parts of his life he missed while he was busy becoming a massive success.

...The series would mirror and embellish Cuomo's journey with a fictional character and the small band of misfit friends that make it possible for one another to get through these formative years.

I guess maybe it's better than a Broadway musical? Maybe?

In other news, Weezer's new Ric Ocasek-produced album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End (due 10/7 via Repulbic), will feature Best Coast singer Bethany Cosentino on the track "Go Away." A clip of that was recently revealed and can be streamed below...

VIDEO REVIEW: Ty Segalls Manipulator critiqued with hot dogs
Aug 29, 2014 10:31am | Chart Attack

Ty Segall's Manipulator should have been the album of the summer. If this was a few years ago, the prolific California rocker dude would have knocked out three albums, some compilation appearances and a split EP by now. Instead, he took his sweet time crafting a glammy double album studio epic, and released it right before Labour Day. Now it has just one long weekend to make its case before the surfer kids head back to skipping school.

So we took the challenge and assigned Manipulator to our BBQ host Chris Locke, who reviewed it the only way he knows how: with hot dogs. How much mustard does the Manipulator dog get? What kind of relish represents how damn old this album makes Chris feel? Is he pronouncing Ty's name right? Find out above.

Chris Locke's new album The World Is Embarrassing is out now on iTunes. Watch him review Ab-Soul's These Days here.
Ty Segall's Manipulator is out now via Drag City. Want to know where to start? Read our Ty Segall PRIMER right here.

Aphex Twin To Hold Syro Listening Parties Around The World
Aug 29, 2014 10:20am | StereoGum

Next month, Aphex Twin will release SYRO, his first proper studio album in 13 years. This is both a big deal and a weird one, and Richard D. James has concocted an interesting way to let the world hear the record for the first time. Next week, around the world, James will hold SYRO listening sessions. But rather than letting members of the media or the elite hear the album, he’s opening it up to the world. The sessions are in secret locations in a few big cities in North America and Europe, and the only way to get in is to enter a ticket lottery. Below, check out where and when you might get to hear SYRO.


Nai Harvest Buttercups Video
Aug 29, 2014 10:09am | StereoGum

We named Nai Harvest a Band To Watch because they’re fucking great, and your latest chance to witness that greatness in action is their new video for “Buttercups” from their recent split 12-inch with Playlounge. The band tells Crack, “Washing machines are cool dude! At the time Ed Crisp; who shot the video, had the idea of putting flowers in a washing machine then we decided to hit the laundrette to keep a little theme going. But, now you mention it thinking a little deeper I guess it’s a hint towards our album. That may sound weird but you’ll get it when it’s out.” Mysterious thematic foreshadowing aside, it’s a neat portrait of the Sheffield duo and an introduction to their most recent sonic evolution. They’ve already grown from twinkly emo to shoegazey alt-rock, and is that a touch of Oasis I’m now hearing in their fuzzed-out guitar pop? It’s essentially a conglomeration of everything good about melodic ’90s guitar music, so go ahead and watch below.
