Stream Future Honest
Apr 15, 2014 10:10am | StereoGum
Pluto, the last album from Atlanta sing-rap auteur Future, was one of those albums that absolutely changed the face of rap, and Future’s voice has been possibly the most inescapable presence on rap radio over the past two years. He is a big, big deal. And for many of us, his new album Honest, which was originally supposed to come out last year, is one of the most feverishly, painfully anticipated LPs of the year. It’s here now. After we’ve posted early tracks like the amazing Pharrell/Pusha T/Casino collab “Move That Dope” and the Kanye West team-up “I Won,” we can finally stream the whole album. It’s below.
Listen: Cloud Control Praise You (Fatboy Slim Cover)
Apr 15, 2014 10:05am | The Line Of Best Fit
Austrailian Blue Mountains dwellers
Cloud Control are
currently on a relentless tour from Oz to America, pursuing
the promotion of their celestial second album, Dream
Cave. Today hears the gang try something really quite
different: a cover of a Fatboy Slim
The band’s brand-new track is a blissful cover of Slim’s 1999 big beat hit, Praise You. Abandoning the piano-heavy composition of the original (then promoted by Spike Jonzes standout music video) Cloud Control infuse the song with psychedelic chanting and endless keyboard loops. The quartet excitedly seem to create a tear in the space-time continuum, in which 1960s American mind-expanding-hippies meet up with 1970s German electronic-pioneers. The lyrics, weve come a long, long way together, have never felt so appropriate.
“Praise You” is featured on 5, a new limited edition vinyl album released as part of Infectious Music’s fifth birthday celebrations for Record Store Day (19 April). The LP features a range of new and exclusive material from Temper Trap, Drenge, Local Natives,
Woods With Light And With Love
Apr 15, 2014 10:00am | CMJ
Brooklyn’s Woods have combatted the “jam band”
label for almost 10 years now by releasing albums filled with
intricate folk-rock tunes. But tracks like the instrumental
September With Pete from 2009′s Songs Of
Shame have made this an uphill trudge, courtesy of those who
associate seven-plus-minute songs with the jam band tag. So
admittedly, Woods are not without blame for this impression. While
you may not hear too much Garcia or Allman in the mix, the
band’s tendency to venture into festival-ready rhythms and
guitar noodling has remained an integral constant on their
releases. With Light And With Love is no exception,
but it also finds the band exercising their unique roots-pop
expertise to an even deeper effect than before.
Weed touring, playing NYC shows w/ Audacity + Coathangers and Laced (new band ft. Dustin of Beach Fossils) (dates)
Apr 15, 2014 9:59am | Brooklyn Vegan
Vancouver sludge rockers Weed released their debut album, Deserve, last year and they're currently over in the US continuing to support it on tour. The tour brings them to NYC for two shows this week, including Shea Stadium on Wednesday (4/16) with Tonstartssbandht, Laced and Nandas, and the next day they open the Baby's All Right (4/17) stop of the Coathangers / Audacity tour. Ex-Humans are on the Baby's show too, and tickets for that one are still available. All Weed dates are listed below.
For Laced, the Shea show will be their first-ever live gig. The brand new band features Beach Fossils singer Dustin Payseur and former Cairo booker Ian Kim Judd. They're not to be confused with the UK band of the same name, who Shea's site actually links to in the show listing. No music from them yet, but stay tuned. (Also yes, this does mean you can see "Laced with Weed" at Shea this week.)
All dates are listed, with a stream of Weed's LP, below...

Twin Shadow To The Top
Apr 15, 2014 9:57am | StereoGum
Between Swans and the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, this has already been a ridiculously strong morning for new music. And now Twin Shadow have taken a break from their UNDER THE CVRS project, in which George Lewis, Jr. has been persistently knocking out beautiful covers on YouTube, to give us a brand-new near-masterpiece of their own. Lewis is currently working on a new Twin Shadow album, and now he’s shared a new song called “To The Top.” It’s a beautifully rendered piece of ’80s-style slow-dance prom balladry, and it’s possibly the biggest, grandest thing that Lewis has ever recorded. Download it below.
The 10 Best Galaxie 500 Songs
Apr 15, 2014 9:56am | StereoGum
If rock-critic clichés never existed, Galaxie 500 would have had to invent them. Named after a classic model Ford that none of the band members had ever actually driven, Galaxie 500 — vocalist/guitarist Dean Wareham, bassist/vocalist Naomi Yang, and drummer Damon Krukowski — began like many eighties bands reared on rock and roll radio and back issues of Trouser Press: as imitators, not innovators. Luckily, something got scrambled in the translation, serendipitously resulting in the organic compound that is Galaxie 500. Like contemporaneous visionaries Sonic Youth, the Jesus & Mary Chain, or Public Enemy, Galaxie 500′s music suggested innate greatness; because of this, there has always been something more than a little fluke-ish about their rise to glory.

Listen: The Pains of Being Pure at Hearts new song Eurydice
Apr 15, 2014 9:48am | Cosequence Of Sound
If you’re unfamiliar with Greek mythology and/or didn’t listen to Arcade Fire’s Reflektor, the saga of Eurydice is a sordid tale of a young woman dragged to the Underworld. Her husband, Orpheus, braves legions of monsters and fiends with nothing but the aid of his “enchanting” music in order to win her back. (Spoiler Alert: it more or less ends OK for the two lovebirds).
Now, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have penned their own track entitled “Eurydice”, which serves as our second taste of their upcoming third album Days of Abandon. On the one hand, they’ve maintained their pledge of music’s that “joyful and full of light”, crafting an anthemic slice of dance-pop whose bright harmonies and shimmery synths would be the perfect soundtrack to some saccharine rom-com. Even under all that warmth, though, the romanticism of Kip Berman’s vocals strike at the kind of earnest commitment and dedication that serves as the true heart of the Eurydice fable.
Listen in below:
Days of Abandon hits stores on April 22nd via Yebo Music. For more sounds, check out lead single “Simple and Sure”.
Days of Abandon Tracklist:
Swans share new song 'Oxygen' listen
Apr 15, 2014 9:46am | NME
It's the second song lifted from band's forthcoming album 'To Be Kind'
Listen: ULYSEE Wounds
Apr 15, 2014 9:45am | The Line Of Best Fit
Rapidly rising up to sky-high status in the blogosphere, Belgian trio ULYSEE make intelligent, subtle and worryingly catchy electronic tunes.
“Wounds” is freshly cut from the band’s debut EP, U as in ULYSSE, blending all kinds of off-beat electronic sounds into a stuttery but equally melodic mix. It’s got the same slightly distorted vocals, European flair and nursery-rhyme feel as Breton and the same electronic groove as Arthur Beatrice.
This, of course, is no bad thing. ULYSEE manage to sound like two brilliant electronic bands whilst also maintaining a certain je ne sais quoi that makes their own sound – well – their own. Best of all, the track features a vibrato-type guitar riff and throbbing drumming beat that makes it incredibly catchy, rendering “Wounds” – ULYSEE’s latest incision into the underbelly of the music world fiercely infectious.
Track Premiere: Lore City The Days
Apr 15, 2014 9:41am | CMJ
There are only two members of New York’s Lore City, Laura Mariposa and Eric Bessel, but their music sounds like the product of a small marching band. Guitar, piano, lap steel, ebow, percussion, clarinet and Mariposa’s lush, blue croon, all make an appearance on the band’s upcoming album, Kill Your Dreams, out in June via Already Dead/1980. Today we’re premiering Lore City’s new single, The Days. The track is billowing with dark tension and raw vocals, like a sad country ballad stuck in a hurricane. Check it out below.
The post Track Premiere: Lore City – “The Days” appeared first on CMJ.
Preview Trent Reznors score for David Finchers Gone Girl
Apr 15, 2014 9:36am | Cosequence Of Sound
As previously reported, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have once again been enlisted by director David Fincher, this time to score his upcoming film Gone Girl. Yesterday, a new website for the film went live and includes a snippet of brooding, atmospheric music that’s presumably taken from the score. Listen to it below (via Fuck Yeah Atticus Ross).
Based on the novel Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl tells the story of a women (played by Rosamund Pike) who mysteriously disappears on the day of her wedding anniversary. The male lead is being played by Ben Affleck. The film is set to premiere on October 3rd. Watch a new trailer below.
Reznor and Fincher previously collaborated on The Social Network, which earned Best Original Score at the 2010 Academy Awards. Their next project, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, was nominated for Best Original Score at the 2011 Golden Globes.
watch Real Estate's "Crime" video (directed by Tom Scharpling) ++ updated tour dates
Apr 15, 2014 9:35am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Where has crowd-funding led us? Perhaps the direction of Real Estate's new video for "Crime" (from this year's Atlas). In it, director Tom Scharpling (as played by Andy Daly of Comedy Central's The Review) explains that the video was paid for by different people in exchange for product placements and video concepts. So it becomes a cinematic edsel with undead skateboarders, ceramic figurines, a tribute to yesteryear, celebrity cameos and...maybe the Westboro Baptist Church. You can watch it below.
Having wrapped up their North American tour, Real Estate will be
in Europe starting next month before returning for North American
festival dates and then their biggest NYC show yet at
Terminal 5 on October 2. Tickets are still
