Trent Reznor Discusses Failed Hesitation Marks Sessions With Arcade Fire Producer, Skepticism About Rock Hall Nomination, U2s Devaluing Music
Oct 31, 2014 5:45pm | StereoGum

Trent Reznor recently sat down with Billboard for a great interview which touched on a wide range of topics, including his Gone Girl score, failed Hesitation Marks recording sessions with Arcade Fire producer Markus Dravs, his Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame nomination, and his new role at apple as chief creative officer for Beats Music. Here are some interesting tidbits:


Panda Bear releases new teaser for '...Meets the Grim Reaper' starring a panda bear & the Grim Reaper (happy Halloween!)
Oct 31, 2014 5:20pm | Brooklyn Vegan

First Avey Tare put out a spooky video today and now his bandmate Panda Bear has followed suit. Those Animal Collective guys sure love Halloween! This one's a second teaser for his new album, Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, and it stars the Grim Reaper and a stuffed panda bear. How appropriate. Watch it below... and Happy Halloween!

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
Oct 31, 2014 4:38pm | StereoGum

If you were expecting to see some spooky songs in this week’s 5 Best, you might be a little disappointed. Yes, it’s Halloween, but nothing here is particularly Halloweeny. This week did bring the return of the holiday-appropriate Marilyn Manson, and he was nominated, but he didn’t make the cut. Da Mafia 6ix, the resurrected zombie of Three 6 Mafia, also treated us to a horror-filled new mixtape, but that arrived too late for consideration; they’ll have to wait till next week. The only thing spooky about the songs here is how great they are. Check ’em out and have a happy Halloween!


Billy Corgan Responds To Anderson Coopers Dumb On-Air Insults
Oct 31, 2014 4:15pm | StereoGum

On last night’s Anderson Cooper 360, Cooper featured Billy Corgan in his recurring RidicuList segment for appearing on the cover of PAWS Chicago magazine — something that happened more than five months ago, mind you — and went on to ridicule the wrestling-themed furniture commercial Corgan appeared in last year (apparently he didn’t hear about the eight-hour Siddhartha performance?) before lamenting that watching his alt-rock heroes age is reminding him of his own mortality. Here’s the segment:


Watch Another Spooky Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper Teaser
Oct 31, 2014 4:12pm | StereoGum

Panda Bear has put out another teaser for his upcoming new album, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper. It features the same Grim Reaper as the first teaser, but things get a lot crazier this time: it starts freaking out and rips the stuffed panda bear in half until there’s nothing left, all while the screen flashes with bright colors and discordant noise escalates in the background. Pretty spooky stuff! Watch below.


An Interview With Nuns
Oct 31, 2014 4:00pm | CMJ

We sat down with Hank Hanewinkel III, the mastermind behind CMJ 2014 performing artist Nuns, on the evening of their set at the Bowery Ballroom as a part of Champion’s official CMJ showcase with The Kills, Moon Duo and Slothrust. Hanewinkel told us all about Nuns’ transition from a solo project into a full band, the songwriting process, and the cover bands of his youth.

Directed by Ted Maroney.

The post An Interview With Nuns appeared first on CMJ.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week
Oct 31, 2014 3:56pm | StereoGum

Last week in this space, I wondered where the hell all the Halloween-themed videos were. They all finally showed up this week — including a few today, which puts them out of contention for this week’s list. But some of the best videos of the week weren’t dark or spooky at all. They were technicolor joy explosions. “Techinicolor joy-explosion,” it turns out, is probably still the most dependable music-video context. This week’s picks are below.


Musics Biggest Trolls: 8 Artists Wed Like Better If Theyd Just Stop Talking
Oct 31, 2014 3:49pm | Chart Attack

Being a musician in the 21st century is strange terrain. Record sales are plummeting. You can toil over a record for months, even years, and there's still a good chance few will buy it, let alone hear it. If there's one certainty in this unexplored new frontier, it's controversy. Call out another artist, go on a rant, tweet something racist, yell at a crowd and you'll find yourself on the front page of Pitchfork in no time. I know this, you know this, artists know this. It's no wonder we've seen so much trolling lately. Artists desperate for coverage have been living by one simple maxim: if you don't have anything to say, say it loud. And make it clickable.

Sun Kil Moon

Mark Kozelek has been toiling away in the underground since the '80s in Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon, playing for a small but dedicated audience of diehard fans. This September he accidentally made Pitchfork headlines by calling a Raleigh, North Carolina crowd "fucking hillbillies." This isn't exactly new for Kozelek - it's a big part of his live shtick - but it's the first time it'd been at the top of a music site. And he clearly got a taste for it.

Since then, he's done everything he can to stay there. That's mostly come at the expense of The War On Drugs' Adam Granduciel, a guy who's done everything he can to avoid Kozelek's homophobic "suck my cock" bait. Granduciel, clearly frustrated and hurt by the unprovoked abuse from a musician he once admired, finally&...

Cass McCombs Angel Blood (Video)
Oct 31, 2014 3:49pm | StereoGum

Cass McCombs released his seventh full-length LP, Big Wheel And Others, last year, but today we get a video for a track from that album, “Angel Blood.” The melancholy song is accompanied by footage gathered on McCombs’ last tour and in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. It’s humble yet emotionally poignant, just like McCombs’ music. Watch.


Mac McCaughan First And Last And Always (Sisters Of Mercy Cover)
Oct 31, 2014 3:47pm | StereoGum

Arcade Fire celebrated Halloween by releasing a star-studded horror film they made three years ago. That’s their style: Go big or go home. Their label boss, Merge Records founder and Superchunk/Portastatic main man Mac McCaughan unsurprisingly opted for something simpler and more direct, an eerie, shapeless cover of Sisters Of Mercy’s “First And Last And Always.” It’s good — though he missed the opportunity to call himself Mac McCoffin! Listen to it.


Tera Melos guitarist Nick Reinhart released a Halloween LP (stream it); Tera Melos opening Circa Survive/Title Fight tour
Oct 31, 2014 3:35pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Nick Reinhart, guitarist/vocalist for math rockers Tera Melos, is celebrating Halloween with Scary Sounds II, the spooky-sounding guitar-only followup to last year's similarly themed Scary Sounds. Every sound you hear on the album was made with a guitar, and it definitely lives up to its name. You can download it at bandcamp for $6.66 and stream it in full below.

Tera Melos was also added to the first leg of the Circa Survive / Title Fight tour. (Pianos Become the Teeth, who just played NYC, are on the second.) That includes the NYC show happening on November 11 at Best Buy Theater. Tickets for that show are still available.

Tera Melos also play a Halloween show in Houston tonight. All of their dates are listed, with the new LP stream, below...

Morrissey Cancels Another Show
Oct 31, 2014 3:30pm | StereoGum

Well, that didn’t take long. We just heard tell of Morrissey’s successfully completed jaunt through Portugal, Spain, and Italy, but it seems the world’s most ill-tempered (and sometimes just ill) rock star is back to his gig-canceling ways. A post on Morrissey fan site True To You tells us, “The concert at Lyon Le Radiant cannot take place due to flu amongst the touring party.” Tough luck, citizens of Lyon, but honestly you had to see this coming.

Wildflowers Turns 20
Oct 31, 2014 3:27pm | StereoGum

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, kill off the hours
You belong somewhere you feel free

The opening verse of the title track from Tom Petty’s 1994 mid-career high-water mark Wildflowers at first blush seems like little more than tattoo bait for young patchouli-spritzed women possessed of a penchant for calligraphy and easy-does-it-empowerment slogans. Listeners who dig deeper into both its songs and churning, drama-filled backstory, however, will quickly realize that, despite the second-person singular, this deliciously eclectic, sprawling fifteen-song rock ’n’ roll epic is the sort of deeply personal, fully actualized declaration of independence one rarely sees from any artist — think Dylan going electric at the Newport ’65 stuffed into a supercollider with Nebraska-era Springsteen, the National Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Byrds.


Big K.R.I.T. King Of The South
Oct 31, 2014 3:16pm | StereoGum

“Grew up on the country side of town/ Now I’m ballin’ under city lights.” So goes Big K.R.I.T.’s latest Cadillactica single, on which he makes a strong case for himself as “King Of The South.” Hear him swagger and snarl below.
