Fashion Meets Music Festival pulls R. Kelly from lineup following backlash
Jul 28, 2014 10:46pm | Brooklyn Vegan

R. Kelly at Pitchfork 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

We recently mentioned that Saintseneca (and other local artists) dropped off Columbus, OH's Fashion Meets Music Festival due to R. Kelly being booked as a headliner. The festival continued to receive backlash, including local radio station WCBE recently withdrawing as a sponsor. Turns out the backlash actually achieved something though. The festival posted the following:

FMMF and R. Kelly have decided to part ways. We appreciate the ongoing support of our Festival partners and look forward to kicking things off next month.
USA Today points out that R. Kelly's publicist issued the following statement: "R. Kelly is sorry to disappoint his fans but looks forward to seeing them in the near future during one of his upcoming tours."

This followed a June 25 Columbus Alive article where festival co-founder Bret Adams was quoted saying, "He's a nationally known name. He was not convicted of anything. He was acquitted," followed by, "We're running a festival to help brand the city of Columbus. We're not the morality police."

R. Kelly previously performed at the 2013 editions of Pitchfork Festival and Bonnaroo.

Pussy Riot are suing Russia
Jul 28, 2014 7:02pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Pussy Riot members Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova are suing the Russian government for various human rights violations, reports the Guardian. The lawsuit, filed recently in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), stems from the groups May 2012 arrest and subsequent 21-month prison sentence. Court documents indicate that Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova are seeking $161,000 each in compensation for treatment during both their sentence and “pre-trial confinement,” plus another $13,437 in legal fees.

The human rights legal group Agora is representing the two women. Agora originally initiated a complaint back in 2012, shortly after Alyokhina, Tolokonnikova, and a third member, Yekaterina Samutsevich, were arrested for hooliganism after performing their song “Mother of God, Drive Putin Out” at the Christ the Savior Cathedral. (Samutsevich was given a shortened sentenced and released six months later in October 2012.)

Among Agoras chief complaints, Russia violated at least four articles of the European convention on human rights, specifically the rights to “freedom of expression, liberty and security and a fair trial, and prohibiting torture.” Agora alleges that the schedules for the pairs trial hearings were unnecessarily strict and that the officers use of glass detainment cells and escort dogs between hearings were...

Song : Nicholas Nicholas : Cave
Jul 28, 2014 6:59pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Nicholas Nicholas, the musical outlet of Brooklyn-based Chris Masullo has a new LP, Wrong, coming out on August 19th via Miscreant Records. He already revealed the remarkably moving “Meet Me In the Park” and now he has given us another one named “Cave”. The song is a slowly unwinding puzzle of beautiful caliginous tones and patinated new wave sheen. Listen below.


Video : Kid Wave : All I Want
Jul 28, 2014 6:19pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

London’s Heavenly Recordings have been on a nice little streak as of late with their roster that includes the likes of Temples, The Wytches, TOY, and more. Their latest addition is a London-based quartet that goes by Kid Wave. Featuring members Harry Deacon, Lea Emmery, Serra Petale, and Mattias Bhatt, their debut single “All I Want” captures the unkempt energy of being young in the ’90s without being derivative. Watch the video for it below.

Tombs @ Saint Vitus - 7/25/14

Local sludge rippers Tombs celebrated the release of their new LP, Savage Gold, at Saint Vitus on Friday night (7/25), and we've got pictures and videos of the show in this post. They were joined by death/math freakout Relapse labelmates Pyrrhon, as well as Batillus-related industrialist StatiqBloom and sludge heavies Passage Between. It was an absolutely loaded bill. Anyone try Tombs' new Savage Gold beer that Vitus had flowing at the bar for the night?

Tombs will be back at Saint Vitus in October as part of their tour with Pallbearer and Vattnet Viskar. Pyrrhon will also be back in August with Gigan and Artificial Brain.

Below, check out more pictures from the Friday show as well as those videos, including the entirety of the Tombs set.

His contribution is the smoky song “Strong Love” perfect to backdrop a night of skinny dipping in the lake as you lament the fading summer with your friends. Listen wand watch the video below.

Song : Sophie : Lemonade
Jul 28, 2014 5:13pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

UK producer Sophie came out of nowhere setting the internet ablaze last year with “Bipp” and “Elle”, so it only makes sense that he does the same this summer. Today, he dropped crazy sample-heavy new song “Lemonade”. It has a child-like quality in its appeal (and in its samples), but there is so much more to this sugary, experimental track with every listen. The sounds heard are absolutely insane with dropping bass and revving synths creating sort of a musical maze. It will be out on August 4th via Numbers as a single paired with yet-to-be-heard “Hard”. Listen below.

Eric Copeland, DJ Dog Dick and more currently on "Bushwick Small World Tour" with four Brooklyn shows this week

DJ Dog Dick at Mercury Lounge in 2013 (more by Jonathon Bernstein)

Black Dice's Eric Copeland,  as well as DJ Dog Dick, King Conqubine, Robot Death Cult and Fluct are currently on what they're calling the "Bushwick Small World Tour", which is a "conscious tour" of six small venues all within the Brooklyn neighborhood. The idea is being pitched as "a funny way to point out the insane amount of hard work and spaces coming out of a 20 block radius." The tour started Saturday (7/26) at Body Actualized Center and then moved to Secret Project Robot on Sunday (7/27). But you've still got four more  chances to witness this, including tonight (7/28) at Trans-Pecos. with Marley G, DJ Jacksy and a mix tape party with Max Alper and Diamond Terrifier too.

The different shows will feature slightly different lineups, with special guests each night. The rest of the tour looks like this:

July 29 @ Shea Stadium with Beech Creeps

July 30 @ The Ho_se with Kneeling Bus, Alaina Stamatis and DJs Prince Rama

July 31 @ Silent Barn w/ Hollow Bush, Non Horse, DJ Scooba Ooba and video art by Arron Warren

Meat Puppets' classic Meat Puppets II turned 30 earlier this year. Stream it, with a Cass McCombs video and a list of all currently known dates, below...

Sharon Van Etten at Pitchfork Fest 2014 (more by James Richards IV)

Following the release of her most recent album, Are We There, Sharon Van Etten has been all over the place lately. Back in early July, Sharon brought her band for a 20 minute live performance on KEXP, which you can now watch in its entirety online. Then last week, right before playing Pitchfork Fest, she stopped by on Letterman for a fantastic performance of "Every Time the Sun Comes Up." She also has a new video out for "Our Love." You can check out all those videos below.

She's also been featured performing on some other artists' songs. In addition to appearing on a recent Leverage Models song and video last year, she's featured on two tracks on the upcoming She Keeps Bees album, Eight Houses, which is out via Future Gods on September 16. (Sharon and She Keeps Bees are old pals.) There's a video for one of the songs featuring Sharon, titled "Is What It Is," which you can also watch below.

Sharon also has added some fall dates to her ongoing tour, including a run of dates with Tiny Ruins. Nothing with the two in NYC, unfortunately, but Tiny Ruins do have two smaller club shows here: August 9 at Mercury Lounge (tickets) with Cassie Ramone and August 10 at Baby's All Right (tickets) with Tashaki Miyaki, Weyes Blood and Belle Mare. The New Zealand folk a...

Vybz Kartels Beautiful Girl gets an unofficial video starring Jamaican LGBTQ youth
Jul 28, 2014 3:54pm | Chart Attack

After a career spent denouncing homosexuality, Vybz Kartel made a small movement towards acceptance, but it wasn't enough to fully atone before he was sentenced to life in prison for murder. So we can say with almost absolute certainty that the Jamaican dancehall star would not approve of this unofficial video for his song "Beautiful Girl," co-directed by Andy Capper and Adri Murguia.

It was filmed on location during a shoot for a Vice documentary in Kingston, Jamaica, where the city's LGBTQ youth have been marginalized from society by discrimination and violence to live in the city's storm drains and sewers. With a fog machine, a generator and some studio lights, the gyrating youth take the genre's powerful sexuality and turn into an occasionally direct confrontation the society that produced it. Brave doesn't even begin to describe. Give it a much-needed upvote on YouTube.

Meatbodies Tremmors
Jul 28, 2014 3:53pm | StereoGum

L.A. rocker Chad Ubovich has done time on guitar and bass in Mikal Cronin’s band and on bass with the Ty Segall-affiliated garage rock project FUZZ. He’s now fronting his own band, the marvelously named Meatbodies, and they’re putting out a self-titled LP on In The Red this fall. Lead single “Tremmors” matches straight-up Zeppelin crunch with colorful psych-rock flourishes that remind me of ’90s Flaming Lips and Tripping Daisy. Fans of humongous power chords, shit-kicking drums, and wildly wailed melodies must listen below.
