James Blake shares new song Modern Soul listen
Feb 11, 2016 6:10pm | Cosequence Of Sound

While the world was busy watching Kanye Wests spectacle unfold live at Madison Square Garden, English producer and singer-songwriter James Blake unexpectedly dropped a new song of his own. The track, called Modern Soul, premiered during Blakes BBC Radio 1 residency. The next one is a new song from me, he casually told his listeners before diving right in. Check out the track below.

Blakes BBC Radio 1 residency has proven to be a continual source of surprises. Previously, the crooner debuted his cover of Simon & Garfunkels The Sound of Silence and also welcomed Bon Ivers Justin Vernon into the studio. Rumors have since surfaced that Blake would rejoin Vernon as a member of Fall Creek Boys Choir at Vernons second annual Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival this August.



Martin Shkreli offers to buy Kanye Wests new album for $10 million
Feb 11, 2016 5:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Martin Shkreli is at it again. After threatening to destroy Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album he purchased for millions (and starting some major beef with Ghostface Killah in the process), the mega pharmadouche has now set his evil sights on a new target: Kanye West.

In a series of tweets this afternoon, Shkreli expressed his desire to buy Yeezy’s new album, The Life of Pablo, before it receives a commercial release. While at first glance it may sound like a bit of fanboy gibberish, it’s clear Shkreli has a (surprise!) douche-y agenda, and that’s to stop the highly-anticipated LP from ever making it into the public’s hands. “aiyo @kanyewest last minute can i buy your album out so it dont get released publicly,” he writes.

In a follow-up tweet, Shkreli posted the image of an actual offer letter in the amount of a whopping $10 million. “I am writing to you in hopes of convincing you to withhold the release of your forthcoming studio album,” the message reads.

Here is my initial offer for the album. @kanyewest Thanks for your consideration and ...

And he’s legally trying to delay it’s release.

Pharmaceutical weasel Martin Shkreli has apparently moved on from pestering the Wu-Tang Clan and set his sights on Kanye West. The man accused of profiteering from AIDS drug has publicly offered West $10,000,000 to sell him his new album The Life Of Pablo with the intention of withholding it from fans. He shared his offer letting on Twitter and claims, “Kanye and his label are legally required to take my offer letter to their Board of Directors. This should delay the album by a few days”.

What he’s looking for isn’t too different from when he bought Wu-Tang’s one-of-a-kind album — a record he has refused to release and has threatened to destroy.

James Blake shares powerful new track Modern Soul
Feb 11, 2016 5:37pm | Fact Magazine

James Blake returns with a blistering new single.

While the rest of the world had their eyes glued to Tidal, James Blake quietly dropped a new track on his BBC Radio 1 show. Called ‘Modern Soul’, it shouldn’t surprise fans of his wistful crooning, pitting his unmistakable vocals against a backdrop of noisy, percussive sounds and shimmering reverb. Who needs Kanye, anyway? [via Stereogum]

Kanye West has turned Only One into a video game starring his mom
Feb 11, 2016 5:14pm | Fact Magazine

Kanye previews the game at his album launch.

After debuting his new album The Life Of Pablo, Kanye West did several things: He thanked his collaborators, he spoke to the crowd about fashion, he played some new music by a few of his contemporaries.

He also previewed a video game he’s developed based on the song ‘Only One’ where players take control of his late mother, Donda West, in order to help her reach heaven. He has referenced this game before, but words truly do not do it justice. The preview includes scenes of his mother flying on a pegasus and earning wings of her own as you can see below.

Kanye West made a video game about his deceased mom flying through heaven
Feb 11, 2016 5:05pm | Cosequence Of Sound

A new album and fashion line weren’t the only things Kanye West debuted at Madison Square Garden this afternoon. He also gave fans a preview of his first video game, Only One. “The idea of the game is my mom traveling through the gates of heaven,” he said before airing a short trailer, which you can watch below.

No word on when the game will see release, or what platform it will be available on. Or how you actually win, for that matter. But knowing Kanye the whole thing will be a spectacle.

FULL SCREEN: Peaches has yet another great video with Free Drink Ticket
Feb 11, 2016 4:48pm | Chart Attack
Full Screen is our rumination on the remarkable music videos of the day. Today, three standout videos from three standout Canadian acts.

 Peaches, "Free Drink Ticket"

The target of Peaches' "Free Drink Ticket," maybe the most simultaneously vulnerable and vicious song she's ever written, is a monster - so coked up they become it, drink tickets never redeemed because they're worth more as a status symbol. Here, the monster becomes literal. And Peaches is so vulnerable she's naked (for Peaches that's usually a sign of strength). But is her pain and resentment turning her into a monster?

Peaches is killing the video game right now. It's no surprise "Rub," her least SFW video yet, is on the long-list for the Prism Prize. It may have even brought Guided By Voices out of retirement.

River Tiber, "No Talk"

YouTube Video

Is there a name for the feeling when a young Toronto producer/singer puts out a stylish black and white video for a smooth late-night electronic R&B track with a low-key Drake co-sign and another from Jazz Cartier and you can tell they're about to break in a big way? 6ixess? No? I'll think on it. In the meantime, enjoy the new video from River Tiber.

River Tiber's When The Time Is Right EP is out now.

Kanye West raps about Taylor Swift on new album: I made that bitch famous
Feb 11, 2016 4:07pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Kanye Wests new album The Life of Pablo contains a not-so-friendly lyric about Taylor Swift. On track four, “Famous”, Kanye raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous”

Kanye famously interrupted Swift at the 2009 MTV VMAs after she won Best Female Video over Beyoncé. The incident had serious repercussions for both artists: After his co-headlining tour with Lady Gaga was canceled, Kanye spiraled into a deep depression, re-locating to Asia and then Europe, all of which culminated in his self-reflective opus My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Taylor, meanwhile, ascended to pop superstardom.

However, at the 2015 VMAs, the two made amends and had grown to become close friends, to the point where they went out to dinner and even talked about collaborating on music.
