This Saturday, Arcade Fires Win and Will Butler will host their annual charity basketball game, Pop Vs. Jock, at the McGill University Sports Centre in Montreal.

Matched up against college basketball players, Team Pop will feature a lineup of Win and Will, Bon Ivers Justin Vernon, The Strokes Nikolai Fraiture, as well as former and current NBA players.

Turns out the Butler brothers, Vernon, and Fraiture will also serve as their own in-game entertainment. According to Arcade Fire’s Twitter, they’ll team up for a one-time only performance as the Pop All Star Band, which presumably will take place at halftime.

Pop Vs. Jock will also feature DJ sets from A-Trak and Kid Koala. The official afterparty, meanwhile, will see Win Butler and LCD Soundsystems James Murphy on the ones and twos.

One time only! POP All Star Band feat. Win & Will/Arcade Fire, Justin/Bon Iver and Nikolai/The Strokes! Sat 2:30PM, McGill Sports Complex

Staff Picks: Track Of The Week
Sep 19, 2014 3:00pm | CMJ

The most important item of music news this week was that Lil B launched an app, Basedmoji. I don’t have an iPhone, and I haven’t been able to convince anyone to download it yet, but it looks amazing. If I could’ve chosen that as my track of the week, I probably would have. But everything else our staff picked this week is also very nice.

Allo Darlin’ – Bright Eyes

Allo Darlin’s We Come From The Same Place, out October 7 on Slumberland, is one of my most anticipated releases of the fall. This conversational duet is new territory for them, and it’s one of the most charming tracks they’ve yet produced. That muddy guitar solo towards the end gives the track some much-needed grit, which I hope to see even more of on the LP. – Zac Coe

Babe Rainbow – YHIM

Sometimes when everything around you feels cluttered and disgusting, it’s nice to listen to something that’s wordless and delicate, a slight piano sketch that seems to flutter and wriggle as it moves like a purifying force through your skull. YHIM comes off Babe Rainbow’s upcoming cassette, Music For 1 Piano, 2 Pianos, & More Pianos. More pianos, indeed. – Lizzie Plaugic

Lydia Ainsworth – Hologram


Mick Jenkins Rain (Prod. Kaytranada)
Sep 19, 2014 3:00pm | StereoGum

A few weeks ago, the young Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins made an impact with The Water[s], the sort of mixtape that turns underground rappers into stars. Today, he released his first single since that mixtape arrived. Kaytranada, the rising Montreal dance producer, produced “Rain,” which samples Missy Elliott’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” turning its skeletal thump into a hazy miasma. It’s an ideal context for Jenkins’ gravelly, incisive rap style. There’s a decent chance this guy will turn into the next Kendrick Lamar, so it might behoove you to listen to the track below.


Song : SBTRKT : The Light (ft. Denai Moore)
Sep 19, 2014 2:53pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

After starting off the week with a reveal of “Look Away” featuring Caroline Polachek of Chairlift and her solo project Romana Lisa, SBTRKT has finished off the work week with song “The Light” featuring London’s Denai Moore, who will be heading on tour with him. It is another solid cut from his new LP, Wonder Where We Land, out October 7th via Young Turks. Stream it below.

Radio Round-Up: Power Increases, Remote Broadcasts And Connecticut Stations
Sep 19, 2014 2:35pm | CMJ

Welcome to Radio Round-up, wherein we take a look at what went down in college radio over the past week.

  • As of last Friday, September 12, 2014, CJAM quadrupled its broadcasting power 2,084 watts. This increase in wattage means that their signal now has a reach of 15-20 km (10-12 mi) radius. The station manager, Vernon Smith, said that along with the power increase the station will also be working on implementing higher quality programming.
  • One of the things that makes college radio so great is that no two stations are the same. Every station has their own format, different things they focus on and a unique way of programming. The Hartford Courant ran a feature on college radio stations in Connecticut, where it profiles stations throughout the state and sheds some light on what makes each station unique. The stations featured are: WNHU at the University of New Haven, WCNI at Connecticut College, WQAQ at Quinnipiac, WVOF at Fairfield University, WSIN at Southern Connecticut State University and WHRT at Sacred Heart University.
  • KFJC, the Foothill College station, is heading across the pond to Liverpool, U.K., where they will be presenting a live broadcast of the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia. For the past 20 years KFJC has been doing live remote broadcasts around the country and overseas. This broadcast will be available online as well as on the air at 89.7 in the San Francisco Bay Area. KFJC will also have live video footage a...

Jeremih Dont Tell Em (Remix) (Feat. Migos)
Sep 19, 2014 2:29pm | StereoGum

Earlier this week, we heard a remix of Jeremih’s explicit club anthem “Don’t Tell ’Em,” which featured new verses by Ty Dolla $ign and French Montana. Now, another remix of “Don’t Tell ’Em” is released, this time accompanied by verses from Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset, the three Atlanta natives who comprise hip-hop group Migos. Unfortunately the YG verse from the album version doesn’t make a comeback (“I got a missed call from your bitch”), but in other ways adheres closely to the original. The first two minutes are essentially identical to the first two minutes of the original mix, which makes the eventual appearance of Migos’ Dirty South trap verses, which reference Mike And Ikes, Fight Night, and “Peter Piper” even more exciting. Check out the new remix below.

SBTRKT releases song The Light listen
Sep 19, 2014 2:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound

This week, SBTRKT offers up not one, but two new tracks off his much-anticipated sophomore album, Wonder Where We Land. On Monday, the UK producer shared “Look Away”, his beguiling collaboration with Chairlift’s own Caroline Polachek. Today, he premiered “The Light” on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. A glitchy, lovesick number, it features the lush vocals of soul singer and fellow Londoner Denai Moore.

Speaking on the LP’s many guests, SBTRKT told DJ Annie Mac that he often finds himself “gravitating” towards collaborations because he loves “the meeting of two minds, the clashing of two ideas.”

Listen to “The Light” below.

Wonder Where We Land is due out October 7th via Young Turks. For more sounds, check out “New Dorp.New York” featuring Ezra Koenig, “Temporary View” featuring Sampha, “War Drums” featuring Warpaint, “Higher” featuring Raury, and “Voices In My Head” featuring ASAP Ferg.

Karen O @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery: Septmeber 18, 2014
Sep 19, 2014 2:20pm | CMJ

Last night was the second of three intimate performances with Karen O at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery’s Masonic Lodge. While the first show was seated with less bodies on the evening when the two-week heatwave in Los Angeles finally broke, the second evening was not so cool. Although outside it still was providing temperature relief, inside the Masonic Lodge the show was standing-only and the security guards needed to keep people on the edges of the room pressed together in order to allow Karen and her team to walk to and from the stage. With limited air conditioning the room soon became a hot box, one of the security members looked at the overcrowded room and joked, “Tonight we don’t care about the fire marshal.” (NOT hot: the fact that photographers were only allowed to shoot for a bizarrely alotted “three minutes.”)

Almost the entire set was songs off Karen O’s new album Crush Songs, so above the four throne-like chairs that sit on the temple stage was a neon sign that read “Crush Palace,” and whose light flickered and shifted with the changing tone of the music. Karen though broke from her crushing for the third song of the set when the lights suddenly shifted from harsh reds or blues to a warm light as she sang a cover of the Doors, Indian Summer. Then, because the show was entirely accoustic and there were no drums, Moses Sumney (who along with Holly Miranda was one of Karen...
