Courtney Barnett & San Fermin played Webster Hall with Mikhael Paskalev (pics)

"Courtney Barnett's ramshackle gigs are now serious fucking rock shows" - Eve Barlow

"Came to New York just to see Courtney Barnett. Totally worth it" - Steph Mangan

Courtney Barnett was one of the artists to see at last year's CMJ, and it turned out that the hype was real. She's gotten increasingly (and deservingly) more popular since then and returned for just one CMJ show this year, a Webster Hall show on Wednesday (10/22) on her co-headlining tour with San Fermin. Courtney went on first, but it felt like it should have been reversed considering a good portion of the room left before San Fermin's set.

Norwegian artist Mikhael Paskalev opened. More pictures from the show, below...

Iggy Azalea teams up with MØ on Beg For It listen
Oct 24, 2014 9:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

As previously reported, Iggy Azalea‘s next release will be Reclassified, a deluxe reissue of her debut album, The New Classic, packaged with five brand new songs. Of those tracks, we’ve already heard the boisterous “Iggy SZN”, and today the Aussie rapper teams up with Danish pop singer MØ on one of the album’s three duets, “Beg For It”.

Structurally and aesthetically, the track has a lot in common with Azalea’s lusty collaboration with Rita Ora, “Black Widow”. Only this time around, the MC’s creepy brand of love is replaced by near-endless sass, as Azalea gloats about an ex that “wants to bring the feeling back, but I got a new thang, baby I ain’t feeling that.” For her part, MØ’s hook is a lot more bubbly and playful, adding a much-needed counter to this barrage of braggery. If nothing else, though, Azalea has further demonstrated that she’s pretty versatile when it comes to musical hook-ups.

Listen in below.

Reclassified is due out November 24th via Island/Virgin EMI. The 12-track effort also features collaborations with Ellie Goulding and Jennifer Hudson.

Azalea will perform “Beg For It” when she appears as the musical guest on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live.

Sub Pop: Obits, Protomartyr, Lee Bains & The Glory Fires @ Knitting Factory: October 23, 2014
Oct 24, 2014 9:21am | CMJ

Last night, Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory played host to a truly epic showcase of artists connected to iconic indies Sub Pop and Hardly Art. Hardly Art signee S, fronted by Jenn Ghetto (formerly of Clarissa’s Wierd), kicked things off with a compelling and emotionally vulnerable collection of tunes from their recent debut Cool Choices. Next up was Gem Club, whose gorgeous drone-pop was augmented by an intricately arranged string quartet. After an intimate set from Australian duo Luluc, things got progressively rowdier with blistering sets from Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires, Obits and finally Detroit post-punkers Protomartyr.

Watch A Preview Of 60 Minutes Foo Fighters Story
Oct 24, 2014 9:20am | StereoGum

You’d think that the Foo Fighters’ HBO show Sonic Highways and their recent week-long Letterman residence would be all the TV exposure the band needs. Apparently not! With their new album Sonic Highways on the way, the band are about to be the subject of a 60 Minutes piece with Anderson Cooper. Cooper caught up with the band as they played a secret show at the old-timey New Orleans jazz venue Preservation Hall and talked to him about why he’s doing this HBO thing. The episode airs Sunday night, and you can watch a preview here.

The Gutter hoping to open tonight, sanitizing venue, say they closed voluntarily (show may still be cancelled)
Oct 24, 2014 9:18am | Brooklyn Vegan

Yesterday it was revealed that the doctor with ebola in NYC spent the evening at Williamsburg concert venue and bowling alley The Gutter before realizing he had symptoms. Last night The Gutter was closed as a result. The CMJ show scheduled to take place there was cancelled. Late last night the Gutter issued their first statement. This morning they posted this second one:

We voluntarily decided to close The Gutter yesterday evening as a precautionary measure while we gathered more information. We are working with the NYC Health Department to have the bar cleaned and sanitized under their supervision and expect to be open sometime today after that is completed. Doctors advising the Health Department have told us that our staff and customers were at no risk.
Meanwhile, tonight's CMJ show at the bowling alley is also cancelled, though show presenter Gimme Tinnitus says maybe the show will uncancel itself if they do open. If it does, they're asking for donations to Doctors Without Borders.

The Village Voice recently said The Gutter has the best bowling lanes in NY.

The bands scheduled to play the Gutter tonight were/are Dott, Be Forest, The Flag, Kindling, Night Powers, and Lia Mice. It was/is a $5, no-badges show.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn Bowl continues to spread the word, that "As confirmed by New York City's health commissioner, Dr. Spencer visited another bowling alley and not Brooklyn Bowl."

Oct 24, 2014 9:04am | Brooklyn Vegan

Killer Mike and El-P's new Run the Jewels album RTJ2 comes out next week (10/28) via Mass Appeal, but apparently it leaked ahead of time. El-P and Killer Mike found about it, but instead of being bad sports, they each tweeted links to a free download of the album themselves. You can grab it HERE.

The duo are also working with Zola Jesus, Just Blaze, Baauer, Portishead's Geoff Barrow, the Alchemist, Boots, Dan the Automator and more to make a cat-themed remix album called Meow the Jewels. If you're a cat, you can audition to be part of it.

Watch Gerard Way Cover Sleater-Kinneys I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone At CMJ
Oct 24, 2014 8:58am | StereoGum

The entire universe, it seems, is ridiculously amped about the coming Sleater-Kinney reunion, and former glam-emo stars are no exception. Gerard Way, the onetime My Chemical Romance frontman who just launched a solo career with his Britpop-inspired album Hesitant Alien, played a CMJ show at New York’s Webster Hall last night. During his set, he covered Sleater-Kinney’s “I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone,” the most anthemic song on their feverish 1996 album Call The Doctor. He really yelled the hell out of it, too, which is the only way to do it. (He’d actually done it in New Jersey the night before, too; maybe it’s just going to be a part of his setlist now.) Watch a fan-made video of the performance below.


FULL SCREEN: Panda Bear meets a recurring dream, Scott Walker + Sunn O)))s domestic distress
Oct 24, 2014 8:57am | Chart Attack
Full Screen collects all of the remarkable videos we've seen in the last 24 hours. 

Panda Bear, "Mr Noah"

"Mr Noah" goes. Panda Bear's played this song both times I've seen him live this year, and even as his other melodies rang throughout the venue, his masterful harmonious repetition - those "eh eh ehs!" - stood out. And today we learn it's not even on his upcoming new album Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, but from a standalone EP. He's sneakily raised the bar for himself, especially now that the fantastic studio version is available in this also-amazing video, directed by AB/CD/CD. It seems to take place in a neighbourhood's recurring dream, with a good dog as its barking alderman. I think a loop crafter like Noah Lennox will appreciate the repeating views of skewed domestic scenes, like we're half woken up from the extended REM sleep of "Let Forever Be"'s elaborate theatre. The camera is especially remarkable; it's so fluid it's enough to make Gaspar Noé nauseous.

Panda Bear's new album Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is out January 13 via Domino. Pre-order it here and you can get the Mr Noah EP right now, with three tracks not on the new record.

Scott Walker + Sunn O))), "Brando"

I'm still trying to decipher Scott Walker's "Epizootics!" music video, and I'll probably be sitting on Gisèle Vienne's "Brando" video for some tim...

Drake surprised SOB's last night, Dev Hynes played with Kindness, Mac DeMarco DJ'd & more (it's CMJ)

Drake @ SOB's (via)

Though Drake didn't make an appearance with his friend iLoveMakonnen at SOB's on Tuesday (maybe he could have broke up the fight), he did show up last night at the same club to make a CMJ guest appearance with his other friend Partynextdoor. Video below.

iLoveMakonnen plays CMJ again at Fader Fort.

Speaking of not-so surprising CMJ guest appearances and Fader Fort, Dev Hynes joined his friend and collaborator Kindness on stage at Fader Fort late last night. Rapper DeJ Loaf (who brought out Remy Ma and her mom at Santos Tuesday) also joined rappers Rae Sremmurd (who played SOB's Tuesday before iLoveMakonnen who also joined Rae Sremmurd at their show).

Last night was also the late Joey Bada$$ and Vince Staples show at Highline Ballroomm, but more about that one later.

Mac DeMarco, who DJs again at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday night, showed up to DJ the Captured Tracks day party at Baby's All Right yesterday, after a DJ set by PP's Meredith Graves.

Noel Gallagher joins Johnny Marr and covers Iggy Pops Lust For Life and The Smiths How Soon Is Now?
Oct 24, 2014 8:34am | Cosequence Of Sound

By now, it’s safe to assume that we may never see those hotly-anticipated reunions from The Smiths and Oasis. How’s this for a consolation prize, though: members of both bands coming together as some two-headed beast of Britpop majesty? That’s what happened Thursday evening, as Noel Gallagher joined Johnny Marr during for an encore performance at London’s O2 Brixton Academy.

Both The Smiths and Oasis may be familiar with interpersonal drama, but Marr and Gallagher are practically BFFs. “I’d like to introduce someone who has been a friend of mine for 20 years,” Marr told the crowd beforehand. “One of the greatest songwriters from this country. He’s a good man, I think he’s got a big future ahead of him. Mr. Noel Gallagher.” From there, the duo launched into a spirited cover of Iggy Pop’s “Lust For Life” and straight into an equally inspired rendition of The Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now?” The pair ended everything with a rather sincere embrace, proving that not everybody in iconic British bands hates each other.

Check out fan-shot footage of both performances below.

“Lust For Life”:

“How Soon Is Now?”:

The duo also recently spent time together in the studio for Gallagher’s new album as High Flying Birds. “The Ballad Of Mighty” appears on Chasing Yeste...

Watch Taylor Swift Shut Down Hollywood Boulevard On Kimmel
Oct 24, 2014 8:33am | StereoGum

Every once in a long while, Jimmy Kimmel Live gets a musical guest too big for its outdoor festival stage, and it has to throw up a stage in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard and wreck Los Angeles traffic for the day. That happened last night. Taylor Swift’s pop monolith 1989 looms ever closer, and she brought a massive backing band and a full complement of dancers with her to perform the early singles “Shake It Off” (complete with awkward choreography) and the great “Out Of The Woods.” She also did an interview on the show, telling a story about how Kimmel’s music booker kicked her out of the studio when she tried to score a blind audition 10 years ago. Watch the performances and the interview below.
