Track Premiere: Futurecop! Eyes Feat. Lyon
Apr 24, 2014 10:20am | CMJ
Priming us for this sugar-coated blast to the past is the albums single, Eyes, featuring Toronto crooner Lyon. It sounds exactly like what we might expect from the albums title: a ’90s saccharine vibe that perfectly balances smooth vocals, simple synth and a mix of dopey optimism and underlying teen angst. The track features dreamy synth droplets and breathy vocals that remind us of some original ’90s, female-led groups like the Eurythmics. The chorus, of course, is irresistibly catchy, with longing lyrics and a starry-eyed soundscape that could perfectly soundtrack a contemplative, cathartic beach scene on a reality show of years past. In the spirit of throwbacks, this track is a refreshing reminder of how perfectly sparkly the ’90s were and the t...

We Are Scientists Sprinkles Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Apr 24, 2014 10:16am | StereoGum
Veteran pop-rockers We Are Scientists have a new album out called TV En Français. In keeping with that title, they’ve made a video for single “Sprinkles” that features the band traipsing around Europe playing rock shows and having the time of their lives. Incidentally, I played pool with these guys and Oxford Collapse backstage at Stubb’s once during SXSW and can confirm that they’re actually chill bros as depicted. The song is multi-tiered and richly harmonic, and its groove is as freewheeling and fun as director James Perou’s video. Watch below.

Slayer leave American Recordings, sign to Nuclear Blast, release first new song five years (listen)

Slayer at MSG Theater, 2013 (more by Caroline
Revolver Magazine's Golden Gods Awards were last night. I'm not typically one for awards shows, but this one was notable for a surprise (read: tweeted about several hours in advance) live appearance by thrash metal legends Slayer, who are down to two original members following the death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman (RIP) and the departure of drummer Dave Lombardo. In true post-2000 Slayer fashion, the Golden Gods appearance was timed to coincide with a business announcement -- the band have ended their relationship with Rick Rubin's American Recordings (which goes all the way back to the Reign In Blood days) and signed to a worldwide deal with long-running German label Nuclear Blast where they'll have their own imprint.
The band also announced a tentative early-2015 release date for their upcoming, still-untitled 12th album. They both debuted a song from it, "Implode," live at Golden Gods last night and posted a studio version on their website as a free download. It's their first new studio cut in five years and you can stream it below.
"Implode" pretty much picks up where Slayer left off before the lineup shuffle of the past few years -- which sounds better on paper than it does in practice. The groove section that opens the song aims for 'tense,' but predictably misses and ends up with 'goofy' instea...
Watch Neil Young Cover Bert Janschs Needle Of Death In Jack Whites Voice-O-Graph Booth
Apr 24, 2014 10:03am | StereoGum
Last week Neil Young released the vinyl-only A Letter Home, a collection of covers recorded in single takes on acoustic guitar in Jack White’s Voice-O-Graph booth at Third Man Records. About the size of a phone booth, the machine records you to vinyl as you play, which is exactly what Young did, giving the album a unique vintage quality. It became a surprise release on Record Store Day via Third Man, but now Reprise will issue a deluxe version of the album, which contains a CD, standard LP, “audiophile” LP, seven 6″ vinyl singles, picture book, and a DVD of videos of Young recording the various covers, which include songs by Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Willie Nelson. Below you can watch a video of Young playing Bert Jansch’s “Needle Of Death.”
Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi to score television show about The Manhattan Project

Following his cameo on Game of Thrones, it seems as if Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi has been bit by the TV bug. As Billboard points out, the Icelandic singer has joined forces with his partner Alex Somers to score the upcoming WGN show Manhattan. Yes, WGN airs stuff other than Cubs baseball.
Set to premiere in July, Manhattan tells the story of the 1940s’ Manhattan Project, America’s race to build the first atomic bombs at the Los Alamos labs in New Mexico. It’s further described as following “the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families as they attempt to co-exist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.”
The show is being executive-produced by Sam Shaw (Showtime’s Masters of Sex) and directed by West Wing veteran Thomas Schlamme. It stars John Benjamin Hickey (The Big C), Olivia Williams (An Education), and Daniel Stern (a.k.a. Marv from the Home Alone series).
The project marks Jónsi’s first foray in television score. He previously scored 2011′s film We Bought a Zoo, which Somers also co-roduced. The two have performed together as Jónsi & Alex since 2003 and even released an album together, 2009′s instrumenta...

Tobacco explores a creepy massage parlour in NSFW Streaker music video
Apr 24, 2014 9:37am | Chart Attack
Tobacco - the solo project of Black Moth Super Rainbow frontman Thomas Fec - made its own place in the beat scene with a hellish gargle of hip-hop that no one could touch or imitate for fear of losing a finger, or some sanity. With the world now dominated with brutal, banging music, on "Streaker," Tobacco's watching the throne he cast for himself in 2008. It's bigger, more urgent, and less humourless, and Eric Wareheim (of Tim & Eric) seeks to match it with his story of a freaky family-run massage parlour. The Devils Rejects meets Jacob's Ladder body horror and this scene from Blue Velvet, all wrapped up neatly in a late night local TV package.
Tobacco's Ultima II Massage is out May 13 via Ghostly; pre-order it here.
