new Jacques Greene No Excuse
Mar 10, 2014 10:45am | Gorilla Vs Bear
[taken from Jacques Greene's Phantom Vibrate EP, out April 28 on LuckyMe]
Listen: Ruben Haze Phoenix [Premiere]
Mar 10, 2014 10:45am | The Line Of Best Fit
Formed by Dragan Roganovic of Australia’s Dirty South and vocalist Rudy Sandapa, new “collaborative live-act” Ruben Haze unveil “Phoenix”, a compelling slow-burner from their debut EP City Of Dreams. It premieres today on Best Fit.
Opening with Spanish-inflected guitar kisses and simmering synth wobs, “Phoenix” appears as an unusual acoustic/electronic crossover, albeit doused in pop sentiments with studio-fit vocals. There’s certainly a live sound to it – from fingers slides to breathy huffs – all bolstered at the end by padded stomps, gospel-like harmonies and grave string progressions. A promising first listen.
“Phoenix” features on Ruben Haze’s debut EP (out on Phazing Records), available to pre-order from iTunes tomorrow (11 March).
Stream La Dispute Rooms Of The House
Mar 10, 2014 10:41am | StereoGum
The Michigan punks La Dispute make grand, intense, emotionally wracked post-hardcore without the slightest twinge of self-consciousness, and on their new album Rooms Of The House, they dive headlong into feelings like it was still 1996. La Dispute don’t really fit into the right-this-minute emo revival because their music clangs and bangs too hard, but it mashes some of those same nostalgic buttons while still feeling absolutely vital. We’ve posted the single “Stay Happy There” and the band’s “For Mayor In Splitsville” video, and now you can stream the whole album at Noisey.
Rooms Of The House is out 3/18 on the band’s own Better Living label.

Since we last spoke, it's been announced that the release show will be opened by Andy Kim, aka the Montreal songwriter who co-wrote "Sugar, Sugar" for The Archies in 1968, and has also released his own singles, like "Rock Me Gently," which was a #1 in 1974. Tickets for the show are still available.
Kevin was also added as an opener to Feist's four-date solo tour, including the NYC-area stop happening on April 10 at Tarrytown Music Hall. Tickets for that show are still available.
All of Kevin's dates are listed, with a stream of his new LP and a couple Andy Kim videos, below...

Listen: Glitches RGB (We Were Evergreen Remix)
Mar 10, 2014 10:30am | The Line Of Best Fit
Originally released on 2 December last year via Jen Long’s Kissability label, Glitches number “RGB” has been remixed by Parisian electro-pop trio We Were Evergreen.
Currently recording their debut album, East London based three-piece Glitches got together with We Were Evergreen after putting them on at their Halcyon Nights club and now the soaring ethereal pop of “RGB” has been given a tropical twist. Breaking up the uninterrupted smooth croons of the original come organ beats and fluttering vocal loops, sighing trumpet howls and calypso style keys making for an uplifting, light weight listen that only further serves to highlight the original’s emotional intensity.
Glitches play the Kissability x I OH YOU SXSW showcase in association with The Line of Best Fit on 15 March at Wonderland in Austin Texas.
Listen to Jacques Greenes No Excuse, off forthcoming LuckyMe EP
Mar 10, 2014 10:25am | Fact Magazine
Phantom Vibrate is due out next month.
First teased last week, the next EP by dance cupid Jacques Greene is due out on April 28 via LuckyMe. That’s the cover above (which is a bit of a departure from LuckyMe’s usual aesthetic).
The lead track, ‘No Excuse’, flips an R&B sample (Marques Houston, is that you?) over a bold, garage-tinged house beat. Fans of Greene’s earlier work will not be disappointed.
Stream it below; the tracklist follows. Greene will debut his new live show at SXSW this week here are his tour dates.

Stream Coffinworm IV.I.VIII (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 10, 2014 10:24am | StereoGum
In the January installment of our monthly metal column the Black Market, Stereogum contributor Aaron Lariviere wrote the following of 2014′s then-emerging storylines: “Only one month in, this year should be too young for trends to reveal themselves, but the narrative already looks clear: This is the year of hideous sludge.” Here he was writing specifically about Chicago band Indian, but mentioned in the same breath the forthcoming releases from Thou, Lord Mantis, and Coffinworm.
The Snow Memory Loss
Mar 10, 2014 10:21am | StereoGum
The Snow is a new supergroup featuring three frontmen of dreamy new wave and post-punk bands: Beach Fossils’ Dustin Payseur, Wild Nothing’s Jack Tatum, and Holograms’ Andreas Lagerström. Their first single together, a Record Store Day release called “Memory Loss,” sounds exactly like you’d think — ethereal haze, gleaming guitar arpeggios, driving melodic bass, steady backbeat, melancholic moan — and it’s as good as you’d expect. Hear it below.

True Detective Season 1 ends -- listen to a Spotify playlist of the songs that T Bone Burnett chose
Mar 10, 2014 10:15am | Brooklyn Vegan
The series' brooding atmosphere is framed by an expertly crafted soundtrack--some of the songs are haunting, some are bluesy, some are both. The music is selected by none other than T Bone Burnett, the Oscar-winning producer and musician.Listen to a Spotify playlist of the music T Bone chose, below.
HBO hasn't posted a list of the songs from last night's True Detective episode like they did for episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, but that might just be because there wasn't much to list.
What did you think of the ending? Stream the soundtrack playlist below...

MOKB Premiere : Lockets : Wrecking Ball (Miley Cyrus Cover)
Mar 10, 2014 10:13am | My Old Kentucky Blog
We have spoken on a couple of occasions about Philadelphia project Lockets. The duo make romantic dreampop cinematic in scope and sound. Like with many projects in their infancy, they fell victim to lineup reshuffling with previous singer Dani Mari choosing to pursue other avenues. To remedy this, producer Todd Mendelsohn recruited Catie Parker to takeover vocal duties.
To introduce her to the world, the pair decided to showcase her powerful vocal abilities covering one of the better mainstream pop tracks from last year, “Wrecking Ball” from Miley Cyrus. While many might take issue with Ms. Cyrus’ persona, you can’t deny the appeal of the song. With the cover, Mendelsohn continues Lockets masterful use of fluttering synths complimenting the epic highs during the chorus. While emotional gravitas from the original is maintained, this version just might make it soar even higher. Listen below.
The Clashs Paul Simonon and Mick Jones team with Frank Ocean and Diplo for free song, Hero
Mar 10, 2014 10:12am | Chart Attack
OG dub fiends Paul Simonon and Mick Jones of The Clash have cut a free track called “Hero” for Converse with contemporary Jamaica lover Diplo with vocals by Frank Ocean, who doesn’t attempt an accent because he’s better than that. It’s slickly produced and clearly mindful that some would call this collaboration auspicious – a massive, brawny hook and a starry bridge from The West Los Angeles Children’s Choir reveal a song that’s eager to please.
Here’s Diplo’s statement about the song, which he totally wrote himself:

A Beginners Guide to No Wave
Mar 10, 2014 10:11am | Fact Magazine
More often than not, the official history of New York’s late ’70s scene ends in the scuzzy confines of CBGBs, and the birth of American punk (or New Wave, to use its proper nomenclature).
Equally reductive is the historian’s conception of the American punk bands themselves, who often are assessed only in relation to the role they would play in the genesis of British punk, with CBGB acts like Richard Hell & The Voidoids, The Ramones and Television reduced to mere footnotes in the greater story of the Pistols and co.
But as attentions turned to London, back in Manhattan and just at the point the history books end, something very exciting was happening. They called it No Wave.
