A-Trak: Let's Talk About Drugs...
May 20, 2013 4:49pm | The Daily Swarm
FYI: MDMA is hot right now. The mainstream hip-hop culture has embraced the drug as a party starter. It almost seems like a requirement that at least one verse of any song must include some reference to molly. Promethazine cough syrup, also very “in” right now. But as much as this lifestyle is glorified – the consequences are many. Lil Wayne has been in and out of the hospital – claiming that it had nothing to do with the purple drank – and we lost Pimp C a few years ago. Also, apparently molly results in sweating profusely, according to Dr. Trinidad James. DJ A-Trak is fine with all the glamorizing of hip-hop’s drugs of choice, but he feels that we should at least have a conversation about it. Via The Huffington Post:

R.I.P. The Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, 1939-2013
May 20, 2013 4:34pm | Fact Magazine
The co-founder and keyboardist of The Doors dies at 74.
According to The Doors’ Facebook page, Manzarek died earlier today after a lengthy battle with bile cancer.
Manzarek is best known for his time with The Doors, a band he founded with Jim Morrison after a chance encounter in 1965. The Doors were one of the most controversial bands of the psychedelic era until Morrison’s death in 1971, with Manzarek’s signature sound provided by a Fender Rhodes piano and the Vox Continental combo organ.
After The Doors, Manzarek continued performing as a solo artist, with Nite City, and, beginning in 2002, with Doors’ guitarist Robby Krieger. In lieu of flowers, his family is asking that donations be made to Standup 2 Cancer.

That Moment When You Land Your Dream Interview With Prince...
May 20, 2013 4:26pm | The Daily Swarm
After decades of chasing the elusive Purple One, Jon Bream finally scored his dream interview. Prince isn’t punctual, nor is he even reliable. He doesn’t allow interviewers to write or record because he wants to have an honest conversation. There are a lot of hoops to jump through, but imagine the feeling of ecstasy that Bream felt when he finally got to speak with Prince. It’s a great read. Via Star Tribune:
Watch Swedish House Mafia
May 20, 2013 4:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound
When DJs Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso formed Swedish House Mafia in 2008, the first track they ever wrote together was “Leave The World Behind”. Having called it quits earlier this year with a monumental set at the Ultra Music Festival, the trio is bidding their super final adieu with a brand-new version of the track.
Featuring vocals from French singer Lune, the remake also comes paired with a music video as part of a collaboration with Volvo. In the clip, the threesome take the song’s title quite literally, leaving the world behind for picturesque mountains and ocean villas, each in their own Volvo XC 60. Watch it below.
The Volvo XC 60 is built in the style of Scandinavian simplicity, with a floating stack, accented leather interior, and folding rear seats for additional storage. It epitomizes Volvo’s new approach to design, combining the high waistline of the XC range and the sporty contour of the coupes for those with the most active of lifestyles. And for the music fan, the new Sensus Connected Touch allows users to connect to Spotify and play their favorite track just by just saying its name. For more on the XC 60, head to Volvo’s official website.

Liars @ The Met's Temple of Dendur, 5/17/2013
As mentioned, Liars were in town over the weekend for two shows. We already posted pictures from their Le Poisson Rouge show, but the main event this weekend was their performance on Saturday at the Temple of Dendur exhibit in The Met. Having the band play amongst Egyptian ruins as the windows darkened into dusk with projections behind them was, in the words of our photographer Amanda Hatfield, "nearly an hour of weird creepy awesomeness." Some might claim that sound was not ideal, but getting to see them in such a genuinely epic setting is certainly a fine tradeoff. Pictures from their performance are in this post.
The next show happening at Temple of Dendur is on July 19 when Om will play their track "At Giza," which is now sold out. More pictures from the Met below...

Following up his 2011 EP Gabriel, Joe Goddard of Hot Chip is slated to put out a follow-up called Taking Over some time this year. Its first offering is “She Burns” featuring English singer Mara Carlyle. Their union is an interesting one, as Carlyle is famous for her use of ukelele and a musical saw, but on top of Goddard’s disparate, laser-laden lounge licks, she sounds like the main performer at a cabaret on Mars. Get into the groove below.
Yahoo's Billion Dollar Deal for Tumblr...
May 20, 2013 4:11pm | The Daily Swarm
Yahoo has taken the big plunge and bought Tumblr for $1.1 billion dollars – all cash. CEO Marissa Mayer left Google 10 months ago to oversee the rebirth of the tired internet brand; focusing on the youth market to help Yahoo rebound. It’s a huge risk seeing as how it’s a big chunk of Yahoo’s remaining cash, but at least they have the good sense to let Tumblr operate independently. Via Billboard Biz:
But could the move alienate Tumblr’s devoted user base?

Coming in at No. 19 on that list was Queens Of The Stone Age. As we wrote in that space:

Welcome to Wee Waa! Despite the Leak, Daft Punk's Premiere Party Was Still Magical...
May 20, 2013 3:57pm | The Daily Swarm
Choosing to premiere Random Access Memories in the small Australian town of Wee Waa, Daft Punk definitely turned a few heads. RAM was set to premiere at a hybrid music/farming festival and accommodations were soon booked completely. However, on May 14th, the album popped up online and the Wee Waa Motel saw “37 out of 60 cancellations in the day following the leak.” But in the end, it didn’t matter. Via Wired:
Stream Mount Kimbie Cold Spring Fault Less Youth
May 20, 2013 3:54pm | StereoGum
The London production duo Mount Kimbie came up making evocative post-dubstep dance music around the same time as James Blake, and there seems to be a pretty good chance that their long-awaited new album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, their first for a bigger label, could push them into Blake’s cultural circles. Whether or not that happens, it’s a pretty great showcase for their foggy, atmospheric blips and bloops. We’ve posted “Made To Stray,” “Blood And Form,” and the King Krule collab “You Took Your Time,” and now you can stream the whole album at NPR.
Cold Spring Fault Less Youth is out 5/28 on Warp.
