Pond Sitting Up On Our Crane Video
Dec 16, 2014 5:37pm | StereoGum
Tame Impala offshoot Pond are releasing their sophomore record, Man It Feels Like Space Again, at the beginning of next year, and they’ve just shared a video for a new track from it called “Sitting Up On Our Crane.” The video follows a 3D figure as he dangles off the edge of a crane and eventually falls into a psychedelic vortex before landing in a digitized Pangea. The track mimics the uneasiness songwriter Jay Watson would get when visiting empty construction sites during his youth: “We’d sit at the top and I’d always be afraid that we were gonna fall off, kill ourselves. That’s what the song is about. Kind of an anxiety power ballad,” he explained. The video was directed by Alejandro Miguel Justino Crawford. Watch below.
Jonathan Toubin DJ gigs: Soul Clap w/ Charles Bradley, a benefit w/ Citizens Band & Budos Band, NYE w/ Kid Congo, more
Dec 16, 2014 5:18pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Jonathan Toubin knows his way around a party which is to say he's an in-demand dude during this festive time of year. He's got his fingers all of the following events...
On Wednesday (12/17) at Baby's All Right he'll be DJing the Peace & Love Holiday Ball which features live sets from The Budos Band, The Citizens Band and "surprise guests." The Citizens Band and the Budos Band ( who just played the Daptone Super Soul Revue) usually play bigger places than Baby's so here's a good chance to catch them somewhere more intimate. Tickets are on sale and benefit The David Lynch Foundation and the Ringo Starr Peace & Love Fund.
Then on Saturday (12/20) at Brooklyn Bowl, it's the holiday edition of Soul Clap and Dance Off with special guest selector Charles Bradley. It doubles as a release party for Norton Records' Souvenirs of the Soul Clap Vols 1 & 2. Tickets for Brooklyn Bowl are on sale now.
On New Year's Eve at Home Sweet Home, Nothing Changes is presenting the "New York Night Train Annual New Year's Ball" featuring live performances from Kid Congo Powers & The Pink Monkey Birds, Andy Animal's All Male Revue, and the debut of PMS and the Moodswings
Lil B says Facebook has blocked him for speaking his mind
Dec 16, 2014 5:15pm | Fact Magazine
Based God banned from Facebook.
Rap space cadet Lil B claims he has been blocked from posting to Facebook for 30 days as a result of “speaking his mind”. Lil B took to social media yesterday for a rant against Old World politics, slavery, rape and animal rights.
The Based God first took to Twitter to spread his message, sharing such status updates as ”THERE ARE ANIMALS WHO ARE RAPED AND KILLED BY HUMANS EVERYDAY SO YOU CAN EAT THAT FOOD YOU ARE UNITED WITH, ONE DAY A VEGAN JOURNEY,” and “THERE ARE DIGUSTING PARENTS AND FAMILY MEMBER THAT PRAY ON THERE OWN CHILDREN SEXUALLY AND EXPOLIT PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT AWARE, PITTY.”
Later, in a Facebook post, Lil B declared ”If you were born in the 1950′s or before and your family did not push to have segregation and slavery stop ur grandparents are pussy.”
Lil B’s ironic use of the word “niggers” throughout his rant clashed with Facebook’s policy on hate speech. It was likely that Facebook’s algorithms automatically banned the Based God, unaware that Lil B is all about spreading the love.
Last month, Lil B “made history” when he manually followed his one millionth user on Twitter. [via The FADER]
The 10 Best Late Night Performances of 2014
Dec 16, 2014 4:49pm | Chart Attack
The late night performance is an increasingly important arena for new music. Not only do the spots get millions of eyeballs from TV audiences, but millions more online (where you're spared Fallon's Pros and Cons and aren't forced to watch Letterman coast into retirement). Then again, maybe old Davey ain't so bad; in drafting this list, it became pretty clear: he and his music producer, Sheryl Zelikson, have the game in a chokehold. Just ask Future Islands.
Future Islands on Late Show with David Letterman
Handily a defining moment of music in 2014 (evidence of the power of the late night stage, we've argued here) and certainly the buzziest such gig, we watched a workaday band enter a higher orbit in an old world, "this is your big break, kid"-type way. From his modified Grapevine to the emphatic growls, Samuel T. Herring's charisma campaign doesn't let up all along, he just needed the right vehicle to deliver this bomb to the masses.
Kendrick Lamar on Saturday Night Live
Some people said "i" was soft, that the prodigal son had left for the pop charts, but here on this SNL spot one of the most breathless televised musical performances I can remember "i" is fire. Kendrick's message of self-love isn't meant to be cute (he isn't doing "Happy"), his is an expression aimed at moments of overwhelming fear and pain and unrest. It's a protest song right when we need one.
David Byrne and the Atomic Bomb! Band on ...

The Albums That Defined 2014: Future Islands Singles and the new golden age of the late night stage
Dec 16, 2014 4:22pm | Chart Attack
The Albums That Defined 2014 explores how this year's most influential records have shaped and reflected the wider music landscape. Today, examining how that old school discovery tool - the TV performance - is spreading to the digital water cooler.
PLUS: The Top Ten Late Night Performances of 2014.
I, like many of you, had never heard of Future Islands before March 3 when they played the Late Show with David Letterman. Actually, I, like many of you, had never heard of Future Islands before March 4 when CBS upped the performance to YouTube and the whole internet seemingly caught the train at once. The Baltimore synth-pop act had already been a journeyman band pounding the pavement for 11 years, but in those three-and-a-half minutes, encoded somewhere in Samuel T. Herring's jazzed up side step routine, the chest beating, his improbable growls, the band recorded its breakthrough 3 million views and counting.
"Seasons (Waiting For You)" wormed its way up the Billboard 200; Singles, their fourth album, landed on the radars of every major reviewer and managed sales magnitudes better than anything they'd done before; they sold out shows from L.A.'s Wiltern Theatre to The Roundhouse in London; arguably all because of the attention fetched by that one video clip.
While they might be the best example of a band that's made their name household straight off the late night stage (in recent me...

by Arielle Gordon
Famed bearded New York comic Dan St. Germain is bringing his stand up to Union Hall tonight (12/15). He's truly redefined the comedy hustle, performing at every venue from The Stand to Conan in the past few months.

In his final role, Robin Williams voices a talking dog in Terry Jones Absolutely Anything watch
Dec 16, 2014 3:28pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In his final performance before tragically dying in August 2014, Robin Williams contributed his iconic voice to Absolutely Anything, the new film from Monty Pythons Terry Jones and starring Simon Pegg.
Set to hit theaters early next year, Absolutely Anything is about a disillusioned school teacher (played by Pegg) who is given the power to do anything he wants at the behest of a group of aliens watching him from space.
In anticipation, Deadline has premiered a scene from the film in which Pegg gives his dog (voiced by Williams) the ability to speak. Watch below.
Absolutely Anything also stars Kate Beckinsale along with the voices of Jones’ Monty Python troupe mates Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, and Eric Idle.
Tiny Engines co-founders Will & Chuck, Cayetana, Frontier(s) and Runaway Brother list their favorite LPs of 2014
Dec 16, 2014 3:15pm | Brooklyn Vegan
intro by Andrew Sacher
There were a lot of great labels in 2014, but one label I think had an exceptionally good year is Tiny Engines. Between the second Beach Slang EP of the year, the Places to Hide EP, Cayetana's debut album, the latest EP from Frontier(s) (ex-Elliott, Mouthpiece), Somos' debut album, The Hotelier's breakthrough album and still others, TE was one of the most consistently great homes for indie rock, punk and emo in 2014. (If you haven't heard any of those releases, strongly recommended!)
Now that the year's coming to a close, Tiny Engines co-founders Will Miller and Chuck Daley (who also both run Beartrap PR) told us about their favorite albums of the year, as did TE bands Cayetana, Runaway Brother (debut LP and BV-presented NYC show coming in 2015), and Matt from Frontier(s)/Mouthpiece.
Find out who made their lists (and read the entertaining intro Chuck wrote for his) below...

Sinkane got remixed by Busy P, touring after show w/ Neneh Cherry, tells us his Top 10 Grateful Dead songs for 2014
Dec 16, 2014 2:48pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Sinkane, aka multi-talented Brooklynite Ahmed Gallab, was a busy man this year. He helmed the multi-city William Onyeabor Atomic Bomb tribute concerts, released his fifth album, the underrated Mean Love, and kept an active solo touring schedule. He's not slowing down either. Recently, Ed Banger domo Busy P remixed Mean Love track "New Name," turning it from a shuffling soul number into an electrofunk workout. You can stream that, and a few tracks from Mean Love, below.
As mentioned, Sinkane will be opening for Neneh Cherry at her first-ever NYC show which happens January 9 at Highline Ballroom. Tickets are still available. After that, Sinkane has a late winter tour planned which includes another NYC show, Rough Trade on February 15. Openers are still to be announced, but tickets go on sale Friday (12/19) at noon. All dates are listed below.
And finally, we asked Sinkane to give us a Top 10 of 2014 list
and he returned with "Top 10 Grateful Dead songs for me this year."
No irony in that t-shirt he's wearing at the top of this post.
Check out his list, plus streams and tour dates, below...

Adia Victoria touring in 2015 (dates & song stream)
Dec 16, 2014 2:19pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
Nashville singer/songwriter Adia Victoria put out her debut single "Stuck in the South" this year, and it didn't take long for the track to catch on -- it's already gained praise from Nashville Scene, Rookie, American Songwriter, and Wondering Sound, who included it in their list of their favorite songs of 2014. Adia also caught the attention of Those Darlins, who had her join them in a recent Nashville Scene video session with Caitlin Rose (video below). Adia's single has a Southern twang to it, but it's also got dark doomy riffs that aren't too far removed from '90s PJ Harvey. Listen for yourself below.
Adia also has a tour announced for 2015, including a NYC show happening on January 27 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
All dates are listed, with the song stream and video, below...
