Secret Mockingjay Soundtrack Song Revealed: Ariana Grande x Lorde x Diplo
Oct 29, 2014 5:54pm | StereoGum
Last week when the tracklist for the Lorde-curated Hunger Games: Mockingjay soundtrack was announced, one song was left off: the mysteriously unlabeled “Track 5.” (Lorde tweeted that it wasn’t meant to be a mystery and that it just hadn’t been finished yet.) In a livestream with her fans today, Ariana Grande revealed that she’s the artist behind the song. It’s called “Love Me Harder” and is a collaboration with Lorde and Diplo. “It’s a very interesting song. It’s very different,” she said. To be honest, I’m a little disappointed! I was hoping it would be an original Kanye track or a new Taylor Swift song. Oh well. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 OST is out 11/18 via Republic.

Tickets go on sale to Friends of Lincoln Center on November 6 and the general public on November 17.

Young Fathers Dead crowned UKs best album
Oct 29, 2014 5:10pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Scottish hip hop group Young Fathers has won this year’s Mercury Prize for Dead. The annual award honors the best album from the UK and Ireland as voted on by a panel of musicians, executives, journalists, and other industry figures.
Young Fathers beat out the likes of Damon Albarns Everyday Robots, Bombay Bicycle Clubs So Long, See You Tomorrow, Jungles Jungle, and Anna Calvis One Breath. Prior to tonight’s announcement, FKA twigs’LP1 was a 2:1 frontrunner, according to BBC News. Kate Tempest’s Everybody Down was also considered a favorite.
In addition to bragging rights, the group will receive a handsome £20,000 in cash.
Listen to Dead below via Spotify.
Last year, James Blake took home the award for Overgrown. Other past recipients include Alt-J, The xx, Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, PJ Harvey, Portishead, Primal Scream, Badly Drawn Boy, and Antony and the Johnsons.

Young Fathers Win 2014 Mercury Prize
Oct 29, 2014 5:06pm | StereoGum
For many Americans, this year’s Mercury Prize nominees comprised a whole lotta “Who the heck is that?” I mean: GoGo Penguin? East India Youth? Polar Bear? Did any of those records even get a Stateside release? Yeah there were a few familiar names on that shortlist — FKA Twigs, Damon Albarn, Anna Calvi … Bombay Bicycle Club, I guess — but then you’ve got Nick Mulvey, Kate Tempest … Seriously, who the heck are those people? Yes, they’re accomplished musicians, of course, but besides that! Anyway, the winner of this year’s Mercury Prize Album Of The Year is Scottish hip-hop group Young Fathers, who take home the gold for their album Dead. I can honestly say I have never heard a Young Fathers song (not proud of this cultural ignorance, btw, just being honest with you guys). I guess that will change now! Young Fathers follow James Blake and Alt-J, who won the award in 2013 and 2012, respectively. Congrats! Here’s the list of nominees who did not win:
Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era, Smoke DZA, Cozz and more played Highline Ballroom during CMJ (review)
Oct 29, 2014 4:32pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Sean O'Connell
During a week where it seems anyone with a guitar is playing a show, the 7th annual CMJ Takeover brought hip hop heads from across the region to bask in a late-night showcase at Highline Ballroom on Thursday (10/23) featuring a different genre's hottest up-and-comers. In true hip hop fashion, the already late show (billed as 11pm) had trouble getting people into the venue, and festivities only began around 12. An otherwise jovial crowd struggled with the Sandman, and after standing in line upwards of three hours to get into the free show, they were hard to rouse. Still, the host Low Key didn't miss a beat during interludes, handing out anything - including weed and half-drunk beer - to get the crowd involved. The usual roll call of boroughs occurred multiple times throughout the night, and Bobby Shmurda viral hits spun between sets were shown more love by the young crowd than Biggie classics.
As for performances, the majority of the crowd was there to see 19-year-old Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew, but that didn't stop the other performers from winning the crowd over. Raz Fresco, another youngblood from Toronto, brought his '90s revival style to the stage, quick-fire rapping over a medley of beats with a lyrical prowess that the crowd certainly appreciated. Sporting an oversized jacket and accompanied by slapping boom bap instrumentals, Raz fit in nicely with the Beast Coast caliber artists that value pure lyric...
CMJ Charts, October 30, 2007: Stars In Our Bedroom After The War
Oct 29, 2014 4:27pm | CMJ
I never knew that death and heartbreak could be so beautiful until I heard Stars. All seven albums from Canadian orchestral synth-pop band are consumed by themes of darkness, but their alluring melodies slightly obscure these tones to make their music approachable.
Emerging in 2001 alongside friends and collaborators Broken Social Scene, Stars have kept themselves busy, releasing an album every couple of years and touring consistently. Their fourth release, In Our Bedroom After The War, has been their high-point in college radio. While the band was already adored by college radio with previous releases, In Our Bedroom After The War peaked at No. 2 on October 30, 2007. Their previous chart peak had been No. 6 with Set Yourself On Fire.

tUnE-yArDs perform Water Fountain on LaterWith Jools Holland watch
Oct 29, 2014 4:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Last night, tUnE-yArDs brought her Nikki Nack highlight “Water Fountain” to Later…With Jools Holland. While U2 previously tried to wow the program’s audience using a host of grandiose lighting effects, Merrill Garbus and her band relied solely on their ability to bring the gleefully intricate song to life in real-time. Judging by the reaction of Robert Plant, who was in attendance as one of the episode’s guests, it’s safe to say that tUnE-yArDs killed it.
Watch the performance below.
Shinobu releasing a new album (stream two tracks), playing The Fest this weekend & other dates
Oct 29, 2014 4:19pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
San Jose's Shinobu, the band fronted by Mike Huguenor whose other band Hard Girls also put an album out this year, will release their fifth album, 10 Thermidor, later in the year. The album's coming out via Really Records and Lauren Records, and they're currently trying to raise $3,000 from pre-orders and will release it as a free download via Quote Unquote Records once they do.
They've been promising to put out a new single for every $1,000 raised and it looks like they just hit the $2,000 mark because they've put out a second single, "The Void," via Punk News. Both "The Void" and previous single "Culture, Inc" are nice doses of distorted '90s-style indie rock that fans of Built to Spill or early Weezer should check out. You can stream them below.
Shinobu will be at The Fest this weekend and they have two California shows in January. Meanwhile, Hard Girls, who made their NYC debut at a BV-presented Death by Audio show in August, will return on their tour with Antarctigo Vespucci (aka Jeff Rosenstock and Chris Farren) which hits Palisades on November 15.
List of Shinobu dates, and song streams, below...

Allman Brothers played their final show (videos & setlist)
Oct 29, 2014 3:36pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Allman Brothers final show (via
The Allman Brothers Band came out of the gates with "Little Martha" > "Mountain Jam" just before 9 p.m. and finished the third set just before 1 a.m. with the second half of "Mountain Jam" before putting a cap on the evening with one last "Whipping Post" encore and even tacked on "Trouble No More" for good measure (The Allmans recorded a rendition of the Muddy Waters' classic for their 1969 debut album, but more importantly it was the first song the original band ever played). In between there were tons of emotional moments as the lineup put their all into the final performance of such beloved and fitting songs like "Ain't Wasting Time No More," "Midnight Rider," "One Way Out," "Southbound," "The Sky Is Crying" and "Revival."
Angelo De Augustine You Open To The Idea
Oct 29, 2014 3:15pm | StereoGum
Angelo De Augustine stays making gorgeously fragile intimate acoustic ballads on that Elliott Smith tip. “You Open To The Idea” is the latest song he’s shared from debut album Spirals Of Silence, and like “How Past Begins” and “Old Hope” before it, it’s just unimaginably pretty. Listen.
Jenny Toomey (Tsunami, Grenadine) forms Human Hearts with Franklin Bruno, her first new music in 12 years (listen)
Oct 29, 2014 3:10pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Jenny Toomey has a great indie rock CV -- she cofounded influential label Simple Machines Records (which led to writing a guide on how to do it yourself), and has played in such bands as Tsunami, Grenadine and Liquorice. But it's been 12 years since she made any new music. (She's been busy as an activist working for the Ford Foundation.) But she's got a new project called Human Hearts which is a collaboration with old friend Franklin Bruno (Nothing Painted Blue). Their first single is due out next week (11/7) via WIAIWYA's singles club. The A-side, "Loyal Oppostion," is jazzy with lush strings (shades of early Everything but the Girl), and the B-side, "Distracted," is bouncy indiepop. Jenny, glad to have you back.
You can stream "Distracted" below...
