School of Seven Bells reissuing Put Your Sad Down EP for Record Store Day
Apr 17, 2014 8:37pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In December, School of Seven Bells co-founder Benjamin Curtis lost his battle with cancer. Prior to his death, however, his bandmate, management, and friends organized a charity concert featuring the likes of Paul Banks and The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr. The August event at New York’s Bowery Hotel also included an auction, during which 500 extremely-limited copies of SVIIB’s 2012 EP Put Your Sad Down were sold.
Now, Alejandra Deheza has decided to release the remaining 300 copies of the EP for Record Store Day (April 19th). Serving as some of Curtis’ final recordings, the 10-inch features a dust sleeve designed by graphic artist Blanda Eggenschwiler (who has also done work for Obey and Ego Jewelry).
Below, check out the EP standout “Secret Days”:
The 10-inch is apparently just the beginning of a surge of forthcoming SVIIB news. In a recent Facebook post, Deheza wrote, “Were excited to say that we have some new School of Seven Bells news to share with you in the upcoming days, weeks and months.” She also took time to acknowledge fans’ support, adding, “All the letters of support and caring words that so many of you have sent in, every one of them appreciated.”
Watch: Future and Kanye Wests video for I Won
Apr 17, 2014 7:01pm | Cosequence Of Sound
While you’re heading home for Law & Order reruns and Hot Pockets, Future and Kanye West hit up the beach in the video for their collaborative single “I Won”.
Helmed by legendary director and longtime Kanye associate Hype Williams, the clip features the two emcees roaming around some sandy shores while a few models frolic about in the water. While the black and white video proves to be a cinematic slice of sweltering sex appeal, there’s just a few noteworthy tidbits to pick up on: 1) Kanye doesn’t bother to remove his chain, even during a day at the beach; 2) I need to know where Future bought his white suit; and 3) one of the models looks far too much like Kim K. to be mere coincidence.
Enjoy a little surf as you watch below. I can almost feel the warm sand on my toes.
“I Won” is off Future’s sophomore album Honest, due out April 22nd via Epic Records. It’s streaming over here.

Mark Kozelek announces live album, shares track
Apr 17, 2014 4:20pm | Fact Magazine
A live album from the Sun Kil Moon mastermind.
Mark Kozelek’s sixth LP as Sun Kil Moon, the death-obsessed Benji, is as astounding as it is bleak and it’s an early album-of-the-year contender around these parts.
Most of the album’s songs appear on Live At Biko, which was recorded in Milan on April 6 and will be released on July 1 on Kozelek’s Calo Verde imprint.
The cover art and tracklisting are below; head to Pitchfork to hear the live version of ‘Richard Ramirez Died Today Of Natural Causes’.
Joey Ramone Birthday Bash returning to Bowery Electric
Apr 17, 2014 4:14pm | Brooklyn Vegan
To honor Joey Ramone (who would have turned 63 this year) and the Ramones (who celebrate their 40th anniversary as a band this year), the annual Joey Ramone Birthday Bash returns. Here's the details:
Following the tradition, this year's BASH will take place on May 19th, the actual date of JOEY RAMONES' birthday, which this year falls on a Monday. The evening will be hosted at the Bowery Electric, to allow for a more intimate "up-close-and-personal" setting than in previous years. The venue is located on the corner of the Bowery and Joey Ramone Place, just one block from the location of the original CBGBs.
Watch FKA Twigs Debut Give Up In NYC
Apr 17, 2014 4:00pm | StereoGum
FKA Twigs played a packed show at Glasslands in Brooklyn last night and debuted new music. A recording of a new one seemingly titled “Give Up” is now available and shows that Twigs sounds just as otherworldly live as she does in the studio. Check out the bewitching new song below.
The Week In Pop: 5 Seconds Of Summer And The Evolution Of Pop-Punk Boy Bands
Apr 17, 2014 3:59pm | StereoGum
“She looks so perfect standing there/ In my American Apparel underwear” is the new “I like girls who wear Abercrombie & Fitch.” Fifteen years ago, at the height of boy-band mania, America was bombarded by LFO’s “Summer Girls,” in which bros with magnificently sculpted haircuts and bodacious bods sing-rapped clumsy couplets between harmonious refrains about the reigning prep attire of the day. These days it’s marvelously coifed Aussie mall punks 5 Seconds Of Summer serving up choruses about lovely ladies wearing name-brand garments — or, in the case of breakthrough single “She Looks So Perfect,” undergarments. 5 Seconds Of Summer presents as a rock band, but they register as a boy band. They are teen idols no different from the NKOTBs and 98 Degrees of yesteryear but for a Stratocaster in hand and their logo emblazoned on a kick drum.
Lets raise $5 million and buy Wu-Tang Clans one-of-a-kind album
Apr 17, 2014 3:57pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Earlier this month, no doubt between bouts of bitter in-fighting, Wu-Tang Clan announced plans for a one-of-kind album: some 20 years in the making, The Wu Once Upon a Time in Shaolin is to be released as a single, intricate copy and toured across the world’s museums and art galleries, like the rap game Mona Lisa, until sold at auction. While the idea originally seemed laughable, RZA quickly assured the public that the Clan had already received offers upward of $5 million for the musical artifact.
Now, in the hopes of securing the album and distributing it to fans worldwide, two Wu faithful have launched a Kickstarter to raise the aforementioned $5 million. In their pledge summation, Russell Meyers and Calvin Okoth-Obbo, both of Queens, wrote that they launched the campaign to avoid “some Saudi oil baron’s kid spending his dad’s money to collect a trophy and then (keeping) the album to himself and fans the world over will suffer.”
Reasoning aside, their overall logic is fairly sound. “For all the fans who won’t be able to pay 30-50 bucks to listen to a double album in one sitting, let’s raise enough money to buy this album and then turn around and give it away for free,” they write. “Wu members can still get their CREAM and the rest of us get to enjoy an epic album instead of some uber rich bastard keeping it to hims...
The Hold Steady Easy (Deer Tick Cover) & Deer Tick Constructive Summer (Hold Steady Cover)

To celebrate the kickoff of their tour together the Hold Steady and Deer Tick have covered each other’s music.

Watch: Belle and Sebastian cover Journeys Dont Stop Believin
Apr 17, 2014 3:42pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Belle and Sebastian performed for a very special audience recently, joining the Songs for Kids Foundation at the pediatric hospital Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. To help raise the spirits of a group of sick children, the Scottish indie-pop outfit offered up a cover of Journeys mega-hit “Don’t Stop Believin’”. Rather than a typical arena-ready rendition, however, theirs is cute, quaint, and most importantly, totally aww-inspiring. Watch a short clip of the performance below (via Stereogum).
As previously reported, the Glasgow outfit is gearing up for the release of a new album, due out later this year through Matador Records.

Brooklyn school Bishop Ford - where R.E.M., Drake, Miley Cyrus, Juicy J & others made videos, is closing
Apr 17, 2014 3:38pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Protests are underway after Bishop Ford students found out on Monday that the 50+ year old Catholic high school on 19th Street in Windsor Terrace was being shut down due to low enrollment and no money. If you'd like to help try and save it, there's a petition.
You may have never heard of Bishop Ford but you may have heard about their breakdancing teacher and might recognize the school via its iconic radio tower south of Park Slope near GreenWood Cemetery and the Prospect Expressway. You might also recognize some of its interior via vidoes by R.E.M. (directed by Michael Moore), Drake (directed by Kanye West), and Mike WiLL (starring Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J). Watch the (not-very-Catholic) videos filmed at Bishop Ford, below...

Watch: The Wytches Robe For Juda Video, Plus Tour Dates
Apr 17, 2014 3:35pm | CMJ
Wytches – Photo by Steve Gullick
Before Brighton-based garage-psych trio The Wytches embark on their first North American tour, they were kind enough to share with us the video for their dissonant sludge-song Robe For Juda. Captured in Peterborough’s town hall on a VHS camera, this is the home video you wouldn’t show the relatives come Christmas time. The band, along with a few friends, take the stage for a nightmarish talent show that would make even the most proud parents cringe in their folding chairs.
After just a few singles but loads of touring in their native land since 2011, the band is planning an album for release later this year. For now, take a peek below and check out their tour dates while you’re down there.
