Watch: Run The Jewels Blockbuster Night Pt. 1 Video
Nov 20, 2014 9:50am | CMJ

Let’s set up a hypothetical: You’re sick—say it’s your appendix—and you need to go to the hospital. You’re feeling pretty bad about it, nervous, unsure; until the ambulance comes to pick you up. The EMTs are Killer Mike and El-P, and you suddenly feel a whole lot better…or worse? That’s the premise behind RTJ2’s Blockbuster Night Pt. 1 video, which sees Mike and El-P trading verses while they fuck up various medical procedures in their new ride. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it! Trevor Kane directs. Watch the clip below.

Joywave Tongues (Giorgio Moroder Remix) (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 20, 2014 9:49am | StereoGum

“Tongues” is a track off the Rochester-based band Joywave’s How Do You Feel? EP, which was released back in March and features a collection of indie-pop tracks. Giorgio Moroder, the Italian producer and certifiable disco legend, sucks most of the sweetness out of “Tongues” and sculpts it into something more nefarious. Moroder announced he will be releasing a new record in January, titled 74 Is The New 24, which will be his first full-length in more than 30 years, and will include collaborations with Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, and Kylie Minogue. Listen below.


Alex Calder Lola (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 20, 2014 9:46am | StereoGum

At this point, the Canadian musician Alex Calder is probably best known for his cross-dressing performance in Mac Demarco’s “Only You” video and playing in Demarco’s now-defunct band Makeout Videotape. Calder recently signed to Captured Tracks and is set to release his debut full-length, Strange Dreams, early next year. As the title suggests, Strange Dreams is a mellow record, maybe even a sleepy one. At just barely two minutes long, the second single, “Lola,” is atmospheric and almost chronically chill. Listen below.


Iceage Against The Moon Video
Nov 20, 2014 9:42am | StereoGum

Danish punks Iceage have already made videos for “The Lord’s Favorite” and “Forever,” two of the songs from their skronky, Americana-haunted new album Plowing Into The Field Of Love. Their new video for “Against The Moon” is a stark, black and white study of weathered faces and damaged bodies. It seems to tell a story of a man with a smashed-in nose cruising for prostitutes, but you have to figure out the story yourself from what little the video gives you. And while it never quite shows anything, there’s a lot of implied sex and violence, so you might want to think twice before watching this one at work. Martin Masai Andersen and Kim Thue directed the video. The clip will stick with you, and you can watch it below.


Controversial Marilyn Manson video features Lana Del Ray rape scene
Nov 20, 2014 9:37am | Cosequence Of Sound

Marilyn Manson has made a career out of making people uncomfortable, but a video he filmed with director Eli Roth (Hostel) proved “so sick, it’s been locked in a vault for over a year,” Roth told Larry King in an interview last year. Now, though, that footage has surfaced online, as Pitchfork points out.

The video features several disturbing scenes, including a bloodied woman submerged in water and a man firing an automatic weapon onto a suburban highway. Most upsetting, however, is a scene which depicts Lana Del Rey being raped.

Del Rey was romantically linked to Manson several years back.

Underground Resistance hero Rolando shares his unbeatable Aztec Mystic Mix from 1999
Nov 20, 2014 9:17am | Fact Magazine

Detroit selector Rolando has made a brilliant session from his archives available on Soundcloud.

The Aztec Mystic Mix was originally released on CD in 1999 and is known to Underground Resistance heads as one of the finest mixes from the legendary techno crew. The 72-minute journey comprising a handful of Rolando productions under his alias The Aztec Mystic plus cuts from Drexciya, Mad Mike, The Suburban Knight and other UR affiliates.

As you’d expect, it’s 24-carat material all the way, grounded in angular, abstract funk while reaching to the cosmos with rushing pads and extra-terrestrial bleeps and stutters  a cherished memory for vintage ravers, but probably sounding fresh as anything to the youngers.

Hat tip to Chris SSG for bringing this one to our attention. Tracklist below via MixesDB. Rolando also launched a new label this year, R3, kicking off with his own three-track EP Juu.


[00] UR – Intro
[01] Aztec Mystic – Jaguar
[09] Martian 044 – Dreamdancing
[14] Aztec Mystic – Aztec Mystic
[17] Octave One – Daystar Rising
[21] DJ Rolando – Aztlan
[24] The Martian – Firekeeper
[31] Aztec Mystic – Ascesion
[34] Dark Nrg – Witchdokta

Elvis Costello, Jim James, Marcus Mumford perform as The New Basement Tapes on Jimmy Kimmel Live watch
Nov 20, 2014 9:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Last week, Elvis Costello, Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), and Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops) — released Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes, their T-Bone Burnett-produced album made from previously unused Bob Dylan lyrics. The New Basement Tapes since appeared twice on network TV to promote the record, and last night they made it thrice with a stop at Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The folk supergroup delivered two songs: James first took lead on “Nothing To It” and delivered a scorching guitar solo to boot. Later, Giddens stepped forward to sing “Duncan and Jimmy”. Watch both performances below.

“Nothing To It”:

“Duncan & Jimmy”:

Costello sang when they did the title track on Fallon and Mumford was lead for “Kansas City” on Ellen; we can only assume Goldsmith will take the mic next time. A making-of documentary about the album called Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued will air November 21st at 9pm ET on Showtime. After that, we can only hope for a tour (or a headlining spot at Newport Folk Fest, perhaps?).

Nov 20, 2014 9:02am | Fact Magazine

The Ultramajician steps up for the long-running series.

Jimmy Edgar will mix Fabriclive 79, which is due out on January 19. The mix focuses on what’s next for his Ultramajic imprint, as well as the music of his beloved hometown Detroit techno.

I went through a bunch of unreleased tracks we are going to put out on Ultramajic and decided to launch them with this mix,” he writes. “I got some exclusive material from my good friends Danny Daze, Crystal Bandito, and Kris Wadsworth. This mix explores the different vibes of Ultramajic.”

The mix bounds from techno veterans Terrence Dixon and Patrice Scott, to unreleased Ultramajic tracks, to his contribution with the late-great DJ Rashad and beyond. The cover art is below.

Metallica perform For Whom the Bell Tolls for Late Late Show residency watch
Nov 20, 2014 8:56am | Cosequence Of Sound

Metallica hit the midway point of its week-long residency on CBS’ Late Late Show Wednesday evening. They’ve already serenaded exiting host Craig Ferguson with Hit the Lights and “Fuel”, and last night they pummeled him once again with “For Whom the Bell Tolls”. Watch the replay below.

Soundgarden Kristi (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 20, 2014 8:53am | StereoGum

Next week, Soundgarden will release the three-CD rarities collection Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path, which has already yielded the songs “Storm” and “Twin Tower.” One of the set’s unreleased songs is “Kristi,” a crushing riff-rocker that the band recorded during the sessions for their 1996 album Down On The Upside. According to a press release, it’s drummer Matt Cameron’s favorite Soundgarden song, and it seems crazy that it didn’t make the album, since it’s an absolute monster. The band only ever played “Kristi” live once, at the 1995 Reading Festival. We’ve got a stream of it below.


Watch The New Basement Tapes Play Two Songs On Kimmel
Nov 20, 2014 8:52am | StereoGum

The New Basement Tapes — which features Elvis Costello, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, and Mumford & Sons’ Marcus Mumford, among others — is a supergroup that exists entirely to finish up unfinished songs from Bob Dylan and the Band’s Basement Tapes. The group released its own Lost On The River album recently, and they’ve already played their songs on Fallon and Ellen. Last night, they were musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they played the smaller indoor studio. On the show proper, James led them through “Nothing To It.” As an online bonus, they also did “Duncan & Jimmy,” which works as a lovely showcase for the Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Rhiannon Giddens and which stands, right now, as the strongest thing I’ve seen from this band. That lady is a total star. Watch both performances below.


Watch Sturgill Simpson Play Life Of Sin At Austin City Limits Americana Music Festival (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 20, 2014 8:48am | StereoGum

Sturgill Simpson will be featured on a special episode of Austin City Limits this weekend. ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival 2014 features lots of talent both old (Loretta Lynn, Robert Plant & Patti Griffin), new (The Milk Carton Kids, St. Paul & The Broken Bones), and in-between (Jason Isbell), but it’s going to be hard for any of them to beat Simpson’s rendition of “Life Of Sin,” the song that made a believer out of Letterman last summer. Check out Simpson’s rip-roaring performance below.
