Theophilus London backflips on Kanye West statements, says Kanyes album isnt finished
Sep 30, 2014 10:39pm | Fact Magazine

Contrary to last week’s statements that he had heard Kanye West’s new album, Theophilus London now says that the follow-up to Yeezus is not yet complete.

Last week the Brooklyn singer claimed on Instagram that he had heard Kanye West’s new album “three times in a dark room of 20 people”. He then took to Twitter to reveal that he wasn’t just on the album, but on the album’s lead single.

Today the singer backflipped on last week’s revelations. Oddly enough, London attempted to blame “hypebeast bloggers” for the rumours that he perpetuated. London tweeted “Kanye west album isn’t finish for all you Hypebeast bloggers out there writing for your magazine blogs”.

So, no new Kanye for now but after Yeezus we know these these things can drop in the blink of an eye. Exactly what Mr. London heard three times in Paris remains to be seen, but we’ll make sure our hypebeast magazine bloggers keep you up to date on any new developments.

Prince hosts fan Q&A on Facebook, answers just one question
Sep 30, 2014 10:36pm | Cosequence Of Sound

These days, pretty much ever artist uses social media to interact with fans — even those who are reclusive and notoriously anti-technology. With the release of not one but two albums this week, Prince officially joined Facebook today. He quickly announced a live Q&A, encouraging fans to submit their questions. However, it took all of three hours before he answered the first question, and it was an insanely obscure one at that: “Please address the importance of ALL music being tuned to 432hz sound frequencies??” to which he responded with a link to an article. As of publication, and nearly 10 hours after the initial announcement, he hasn’t answered any further questions.

At the very least, he could have given us a look inside his fridge before returning to his weekly Tuesday marathon of New Girl.

David Byrnes Luaka Bop Holding 25th Anniversary Events In NYC Elevator Museum, Old-School Italian Restaurant, Karaoke Bar
Sep 30, 2014 9:15pm | StereoGum

David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label is turning 25 sometime soon (the label admits they don’t know exactly when it began — “some time in the late 1980s,” they speculate), and they’re throwing a three-day anniversary event in New York City. The celebration will take place over three nights (10/1 – 10/3) and will all pretty much run the same: Things will kick off at Mmuseumm, a “modern natural history museum,” with performances by Javelin, Janka Nabay, Kings Go Forth’s Andy Noble, and Delicate Steve & Friends. Then, the party will move to an Italian restauraunt called Forlini’s for dinner before ending at Winnie’s Bar, a karaoke hangout that will feature Jungle, Diane Birch, and a few secret guests hopping on the mic. All events are free. Check out an event poster below and click here for more information.


Wu-Tang Clan Unveil A Better Tomorrow Bluetooth Speaker
Sep 30, 2014 8:49pm | StereoGum

A few months back, the Wu-Tang Clan appeared on The Daily Show and said that their 20th anniversary album, A Better Tomorrow, would be out later in the year. Now that album has an official release date: Black Friday, which is on 11/28 this year. In a new interview with Billboard, RZA revealed the plans for the release of the new record. One of the biggest things he talked about was the existence of a limited-edition version of the album that will only be available on a portable Bluetooth speaker (pictured above). The Wu-edition Boombot Rex will come with the “W” logo on it and will be limited to only 3000 speakers. Here’s what RZA had to say about why he went this route with the special edition:

Ryan Adams performs Gimme Something Good on Ellen watch
Sep 30, 2014 8:24pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Ryan Adams is well-known around the late night TV circuit — just ask David Letterman. But with two albums to support (his self-titled LP and the garage punk 1984 EP… make it three if you count the three-track Jacksonville EP), Adams saw fit to make an appearance on a daytime show, too. He stopped by Ellen this morning to deliver a performance of his single “Gimme Something Good” and give everyone in the audience a copy of Ryan Adams. Watch the replay below. (Ed. Note: Ryan Adams is probably the first person ever to wear a Black Flag t-shirt on the set of Ellen.)

(Read: Ranking: Ryan Adams)

In related news, Adams recently appear on NPR’s “World Cafe”. In addition to delivering the first-ever performance of “The Door” from his yet-unreleased Blackhole, he also performed a ridiculously fantastic cover of Foreigner’s classic “I Want To Know What Love Is”. Audio of the performance has since found its way online, and you can hear him turn the schmaltzy ballad into a tender burner below.

Adams will return to late night on Thursday when he visits Conan. That appearance coincides with the start of his next leg of North American tour dates, which you can find here. At recent live shows, Adams been known to jam with the likes of Bob Mould and Johnny Depp, so you n...

Sep 30, 2014 7:54pm | StereoGum

Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr have released a new single to promote their upcoming U.S. tour. It’s called “James Dean” and it’s the first new music we’ve heard from the pop group since last year’s sophomore album The Speed Of Things (not counting the rap mixtape they put out earlier in the year). It’s a low-key electronic ballad featuring pitch-shifted vocals and subsumed by a desire to “be cool like James Dean.” You can listen below.

Sep 30, 2014 7:35pm | Fact Magazine

The hotly-tipped imprints first full-length will be a vinyl re-release of the producers 2012 cassette for Pretty All Right.

Almost a year to the day since the release of their first 12″, it is fair to say that the Lobster Theremin camp has enjoyed a fantastic first twelve months.

This reach is set to expand even further with Lobster Theremin annoucing their first excursion into album territory, an LP from Windy City-based producer Chicago Jim.

Released at the end of this month, Chicago Jim contains 11 tracks and will come packaged in a reverse-printed gatefold sleeve with full cover artwork. The LP explores the territory of  Chicago house, early Acid, Detroit techno, ambient, synth, slow juke and proto-booty works without the filthy lyrics”.

Bass Drum Of Death Left For Dead Video (NSFW)
Sep 30, 2014 6:59pm | StereoGum

Bass Drum Of Death’s badass video for “Left For Dead” is a raunchy affair that gradually turns into a nightmare. It starts off with a lot of touching and sexy girls walking around with eyepatches and riding motorcycles, which transforms into people aiming guns at each other and screaming and getting knocked out. It’s a wild ride, and also a total blast to watch, which you can do below.


The brick and mortar idea of music is gone: RZA to release Wu-Tang Clans A Better Tomorrow on special edition portable speaker
Sep 30, 2014 6:51pm | Fact Magazine

Visionary Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA has announced that A Better Tomorrow, the group’s sixth studio album, will be available to purchase as a special edition portable speaker.

RZA has long been critical of modern methods of music consumption and has teamed with music lifestyle company Boombotix in an effort to minimise the damage done by bootleggers and illegal downloaders.

The special edition portable speaker will be limited to 3000 units. The device comes pre-loaded with A Better Tomorrow but can play music files from any Bluetooth device. The special edition also contains one exclusive track ‘Big Horn B’ as well as two instrumentals unavailable elsewhere.

“It’s a record to me that merges the way music was made in the classic essence, in an analog way. As well as merging what’s going down the digital way” said RZA.

“There’s something transcendent about being able to physically hold music,” reads a statement from the Wu-Tang capo. “Back in the day, holding a vinyl helped you appreciate just how much time and sweat goes into creating a single track, let alone an entire album. Over the last decade, we’ve lost that sensation. With this project, we hope to strengthen the bond between fan and artist. Boombotix puts the music back in your hands so you can stay connected to your favourite artists wherever you go.”


Tricky Disses Damon Albarn, Bono, Massive Attack In I Am Adrian Thaws Mini-Doc
Sep 30, 2014 6:28pm | StereoGum

British trip-hopper Tricky was recently the subject of a documentary for FACT TV based around his new album Adrian Thaws. In the mini-doc, he talked about his experience collaborating with Damon Albarn, who he worked with for a song on 1996′s Nearly God that was never released. “I wouldn’t work with Damon Albarn again,” he said. We were walking through Leeds and we were in this fucked up area and I looked around and I said ’these kids got nothing’, and he said to me ’they’ve got us’ and I just thought ’these kids are going in and out of jail they ain’t go no money, how are we, especially, you … maybe you could say that about me, but I haven’t got that arrogance to say … these kids they’ve got nothing, they’re out hustling, but they got me’ — I wouldn’t be that arrogant.”


Primordial Where Greater Men Have Fallen
Sep 30, 2014 5:40pm | StereoGum

We just posted this month’s Black Market a few hours ago, which means the new song from Primordial — which just dropped a few minutes ago — won’t be eligible for inclusion till October’s column. But you can rest assured, it will be included. I was actually under the impression the Irish band’s upcoming eighth album, Where Greater Men Have Fallen, wasn’t out until next March, but either my intel was bad or it’s been moved up by four months, because apparently it’s now set to arrive in November. That’s a pretty good time of year to listen to Primordial: cold, windy late autumn, on the verge of winter: a good time for leather jackets and over-ear headphones and loud, burly, epic Irish heavy metal. And this record delivers just that. Primordial had been trending away from harsher black-metal sonics and toward a more traditional metal sound for some time, but Where Greater Men Have Fallen goes all-in: This thing is almost Maiden-esque in its majesty. The album’s opener/title track is a snarling, wild beast; it is available to stream now, and I encourage you to do just that.
