Sorry for the April Fool. Here are 50 cheap tickets for Flying Lotus and DOOM in London
Apr 24, 2015 8:57am | Fact Magazine

Gift of the North Star?

So, way back (well, three weeks back) on April 1, we posted our annual April Fool, the announcement of a Flying Lotus & MF DOOM album titled Mask of the North Star, featuring Carlos Santana and a whole lot of Thundercat. Oh, and a track called ‘Baloney’, which really should’ve given the game away.

Anyway, as means of a late apology, we’ve teamed up with Soundcrash, who’re putting on Flying Lotus, DOOM and more at London’s Brixton Academy on May 1. We’ve made 50 of the remaining tickets for the soon-to-be-sold-out show available at a discount rate (£5 off): simply use this link to buy them, and you’ll have your money off. They won’t stick ab0ut. Go!

Brand New: A Cult Band for Squabbling Brothers
Apr 24, 2015 8:55am | Drowned In Sound

Growing up, my brother and I were inseparable but disagreed about basically everything. Southern suburbia was our Boulder Mobile and, as per the plot line of every Wacky Races episode, we would spend an inordinate amount of time clubbing each other over the head. His weapon of choice was a giant plush toy crocodile with a gigantic tail and these plastic eyes that would catch you on the chin and sting like hell. Mine? The immutable knowledge that I was born before him and therefore superior in every respect.

This Cain and Abel routine, minus the murder, continued throughout primary school and into our teens. When it came to choosing a football team I plumped for Southampton while he picked Newcastle, who were not only better at the time but resided 367 miles away from home. When we were selecting Mario Kart characters, he would quickly nab the most famous Italian plumber of all-time leaving me to sweep up Luigi. A role model who I would mercilessly remind him was much taller than his lesser sibling

HEALTH announces new album, DEATH MAGIC, premieres
Apr 24, 2015 8:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

On August 7th, HEALTH will release its first album in six years. DEATH MAGIC, due out via Loma Vista Recordings, follows 2009’s Get Color and spans 12 all-new tracks. For the LP, the Los Angeles experimental outfit enlisted the help of UK producer The Haxan Cloak and engineers Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Beyoncé) and Lars Stalfors (Mars Volta, Matt & Kim). That’s the artwork above.

Along with the album news, the band’s let loose a preview in “New Coke”, a foreboding and beat-heavy number, something of a cross between Purity Ring and longtime friends/past tourmates Crystal Castles. Check it out below via its corresponding clip, which was directed by HEALTH bassist John Famiglietti and features quite frankly one too many slow-motion vomiting scenes. (You may want to hold off on breakfast.)

DEATH MAGIC Tracklist:
01. VICTIM
02. STONEFIST
03. MEN TODAY
04. FLESH WORLD (UK)
05. COURTSHIP II
06. DARK ENOUGH
07. LIFE
08. SALIVA
09. NEW COKE
11. L.A. LOOKS
11. HURT YOURSELF
12. DRUGS EXIST

Elvis Costello makes his 27th and final appearance on Letterman
Apr 24, 2015 8:06am | Cosequence Of Sound

Later this summer, Elvis Costello is slated to hit the road with Steely Dan for a lengthy North American tour. Before that outing, though, the English rocker made sure to bid farewell to his long-time friend David Letterman, whose last day as Late Show host draws near.

Marking his 27th(!) appearance on the show, Costello serenaded Letterman with a heartfelt medley of Nick Lowe’s “When I Write the Book” and his very own “Everyday I Write the Book” (anyone else pick up on the theme?). Catch the replay below.

In the past, Costello has served as more than just a musical guest for Letterman; he was the first and only musician to host an episode of the Late Show, filling in for the comedian as he recovered from an eye infection back in 2003. While perhaps the two will remain friends long after Letterman signs off the air, Costello’s rockin’ performance was quite the apt send-off.

Before his final episode on May 20th, Letterman will welcome a bevy of special musical acts, including Tom Waits, David Matthews Band, The Avett Brothers, and Norah Jones.

Apr 24, 2015 7:59am | StereoGum
David Letterman is less than a month away from his final Late Show. He's in farewell-tour mode, and he's only booking his favorites to appear on his show. Last night, Elvis Costello made his 27th and presumably last Letterman appearance, and he went out on a great note. Backed only by the doo-wop-style vocal trio … More »
