Song : The War on Drugs : Red Eyes
Dec 4, 2013 9:58am | My Old Kentucky Blog
The War on Drugs, the Philly band headed by Adam Granduciel, is ready to follow up one of our favorite albums of 2011, Slave Ambient, with their third released titled Lost in a Dream on March 18th via Secretly Canadian. The album was recorded by Granduciel over the last couple of years in Philadelphia, North Carolina, New York and New Jersey.
The first single is “Red Eyes.” It continues the trajectory of the classic, no-fuss rock that the band revived along with their friend and sometime collaborator Kurt Vile. Find it below along with an extensive tour itinerary beginning at the end of this month.
The Hold Steady launch PledgeMusic campaign in honor of late fan club member (5-song covers EP included)

The Hold Steady at Pier 26 in July (more by Tracy
Fans of The Hold Steady may be familiar with their fan club, The Unified Scene. One of the best-known members of The Unified Scene was Mike Van Jura (aka Jersey Mike), who passed away last year, and in honor of him, The Hold Steady have launched a PledgeMusic campaign to help better The Unified Scene and offer fans a 5-song covers EP. I'll let the band take it from here...
A$AP Mob Trillmatic (Feat. Method Man) Video
Dec 4, 2013 9:51am | StereoGum
A$AP Rocky is already a star, A$AP Ferg is already a cult hero, and next year, we’ll hear from the rest of the A$AP Mob. The crew’s as-yet-untitled compilation album will be out in a few months, and first single “Trillmatic” is almost entirely a solo showcase for crew member A$AP Nast. But the ’90s-style boom-bap track also has a verse from Method Man, and Meth sounds nasty on this thing. The video sticks with the Timberlands-era aesthetic, going hard on the dudes-rapping-in-project-hallways style that used to dominate the Box and Rap City. Watch it below.
Behemoth Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel Video (NSFW)
Dec 4, 2013 9:51am | StereoGum
There’s really no such thing as a “big” black metal band, but Poland’s Behemoth are probably as big as they come. The band has charted a fascinating arc since forming in 1991. Along with Vader, they more or less gave birth to Poland’s extreme metal scene, and they’ve produced a deep catalog of ambitious and audacious records that have also sold well enough to make them actual legitimate stars at home — frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski was at one point engaged to the singer Doda, aka the “queen of Polish music,” aka Poland’s Britney Spears. In August 2010, Nergal was diagnosed with advanced-stage leukemia — reportedly too advanced to be treatable with chemo — which more or less shut down the band entirely. But Nergal fought the disease and, with the help of a bone marrow transplant, beat it. Last year, with Nergal fully recuperated, the band headlined a massive North American tour also featuring the Devil’s Blood, In Solitude, and Watain. Those are three very good bands. But from every account I’ve heard (and based on the one show I witnessed), Behemoth absolutely blew them all off the stage, putting on one of the most transcendent and transformative shows I’ve ever seen. Anyway, Nergal and Behemoth are back for real next year, with the scheduled release of their 10th album (and first since 2009), The Satanist. It’s probably as much an “event̶...

The War On Drugs Red Eyes
Dec 4, 2013 9:42am | StereoGum
We’ve heard barely a peep from Philly’s ambient heartland rockers the War On Drugs this year — our only post about them in 2013 prior to this one regards their involvement in the Dessner brothers’ Grateful Dead tribute — but it seems like 2014 will be far busier for them. Frontman Adam Granduciel has been hinting at a new album called Lost In The Dream since summertime, and now we’ve got confirmation that the record is coming in March along with a lead single to remind us how awesome this band is. The song’s called “Red Eyes,” and it picks up right where 2011′s Slave Ambient left off, riding the night train to some ethereal destination with blurry vision and Springsteen on the brain. It’s an immensely pleasant way to begin your Wednesday, and you can do that below.
Spotify explains how royalties are paid to artists
Dec 4, 2013 9:40am | Brooklyn Vegan
You may have heard by now that there's a ton of artists bashing Spotify, like Beck, Thom Yorke, David Byrne, and more. Spotify might not be able to answer every problem these artists have, but on the often brought up topic of how they're paid, Spotify just shed some light on how that works. They just uploaded a long post titled Spotify Explained, which they go into detail about the service. Here's how the royalties work:

IFC & R. Kelly Reunite For More Trapped In The Closet Chapters
Dec 4, 2013 9:33am | StereoGum
One of this century’s great absurd pop-culture moments happened in 2005, when R. Kelly sat down with IFC TV host (and my college buddy) Matt Singer to discuss “Trapped In The Closet,” his super-fun multi-part R&B radio-play opera. Since then, Kelz and IFC have become inextricably intertwined, with Kelly pushing “Trapped In The Closet” to 33 chapters, casting Will Oldham in a brief supporting role, and letting IFC air all of them. And it’s not going to stop anytime soon. IFC is partnering up with Kelly to debut more “Trapped In The Closet” chapters next year. And on Saturday, starting at 5:15 eastern, IFC will air a marathon of all 33 “Trapped In The Closet” chapters. Also, on Tuesday, Kelly is set to release his freaky new album Black Panties.
Video: Young Galaxy, Hard To Tell
Dec 4, 2013 9:30am | Chart Attack
You can watch the new Young Galaxy video Hard To Tell below, but only if you're prepared to spend 45 minutes daydreaming about what kind of animal head to replace your normal human one, if you had to choose. That's because Carine Khalifé's done a wonderful job rotoscoping different animals onto a single oil-painted walk cycle through enchanted lands. I would pick a camel, in case you were wondering.
Celebrate the Montreal pop group's game-changing year by picking up the Hard To Tell EP, out now via Paper Bag Records.

The War on Drugs announce new album, Lost in the Dream, stream Red Eyes
Dec 4, 2013 9:20am | Cosequence Of Sound
Everyone’s favorite Philadelphia mumblers The War on Drugs will return next year with Lost in the Dream. Due out March 18th, the follow up to 2011′s rather excellent Slave Ambient will once again be issued by Secretly Canadian.
The album is led by its synth-heavy single, “Red Eyes”, a title that pretty much sums up my vision for this week. Ah, Adam Granduciel, you wise prophet you. Catch it below.

Jay Z & Beyoncé Plan To Go Vegan
Dec 4, 2013 9:19am | StereoGum
Today is Jay Z’s 44th birthday, and last night, he posted a note on his Life + Times website claiming that he and his wife Beyoncé are making a life change, at least temporarily: They’re going fully vegan for 22 days. It would be pretty amazing if they’d come to this change of heart because they’d been reading all the stuff Morrissey’s been writing lately, but no: the physiologist and Jay buddy Marco Borges has an initiative called the 22Days Project, based around the idea that 22 days are all you need to break a particular habit. Below, read Jay’s note and watch Jay rapping about what he’ll be missing.
Hear Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestras tribute to late Pro Era rapper Capital Steez
Dec 4, 2013 9:13am | Fact Magazine
Thee Canadian post-rock group salute a young genius.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor offshoot Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra will release their new album Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything (we know, we know) next month, and among the band’s new songs is surprising tribute to Brooklyn rapper Capital Steez, who tragically committed suicide a few days before Christmas last year.
A founding member of the Pro Era crew, Steez’s impressive debut mixtape AmeriKKKan Korruption helped make his name as a formidable young talent, but his fame was quickly overshadowed by that of younger crew member Joey Bada$$. The Fader recently shed some light on the mysterious circumstances of Steez’s death in a fascinating profile mapping the young rapper’s increasingly eccentric political, theological and mystical beliefs.
‘Rains Thru The Roof At Thee Grande Ballroom (For Capital Steez)’ was played on Belgian radio show Sterrenplaten yesterday you can hear it below at the beginning of the radio broadcast.
Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything is out on January 21 through Constellation. [via Stereogum]
