Listen to Bob Dylans unreleased cover of John Lee Hookers Tupelo
Oct 23, 2014 10:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

On November 4th, Bob Dylans complete Basement Tapes sessions will see the light of the day for the first time ever. Featuring a whopping 138 tracks, including 30 that were never known to have even existed until this year, the six-disc collection was written with the Band following Dylan’s infamous 1966 motorcycle crash in New York.

Although some of the 100+ songs were passed along to other artists The Byrds (“You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere) and Peter, Paul and Mary (“Too Much of Nothing”) Dylan’s own versions of these tracks went on to appear as bootleg recordings, only later seeing an official release in 1975.

Already we’ve heard a handful of Basement Tapes cuts in the previously unreleased “Dress It Up, Better Have It All”, an alternate take of “Lo and Behold”, and an early version of “Odds and Ends”. Now, another track has been unearthed: Dylan’s cover of John Lee Hookers “Tupelo Blues”, a blues song about the 1936 flooding of Tupelo, Mississippi. While it’s tad more upbeat than the somber original, Dylan adopts Hooker’s talking blues style, his scruffy voice serving as an especially beguiling narrator.

Listen in below (via Stereogum).

Pre-orders for the The Basement Tapes are ongoing. Below, check out the full tracklist.

Lone Restless City Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 23, 2014 10:25am | StereoGum

Lone’s Reality Testing jam “Restless City” was released as a single this week with a remix by Head High as the B-side. To complement the single, the original “Restless City” how has an entertaining animated video by Ruff Mercy. It’s a real sensory overload, with imagery speeding in and out of the frame before you can wrap your mind around it. That makes it a good match for Matt Cutler’s brisk, brainy techno production. Even the dark-hued color palette is a perfect fit for music that casts such a dusky tone without compromising its playful spirit. Check out the video below, where you can also hear the Head High remix.


Les Sins Talk About
Oct 23, 2014 10:22am | StereoGum

Lately Chaz Bundick has taken a break from running Toro Y Moi so that he can make patient, reticent, finely textured dance music under his Les Sins moniker. He’s been dropping singles under that name for years, and Michael, the first-ever Les Sins album, arrives next month. We’ve posted early singles “Bother” and “Why,” and now Bundick has shared “Talk About,” a subtle house track that lightly clowns the entire idea of indie rock interviews. A sampled voice asks a musician the most boring questions that an interviewer can ask a musician, and later it turns into a rapper talking about someone getting shot. Listen to the crafty track below.

Iggy Azalea shares new song Iggy SZN listen
Oct 23, 2014 10:21am | Cosequence Of Sound

On November 24th, Iggy Azalea will release a deluxe reissue of her debut album, The New Classic. Entitled Reclassified, the 12-track album features her biggest hits — the Charli XCX-aided “Fancy” and “Black Widow” — alongside five brand new tracks, including collaborations with Ellie Goulding, MØ, and Jennifer Hudson. That’s the refurbished album artwork above.

Azalea will reportedly debut “Beg For It”, her duet with MØ, when she appears as the musical guest on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live. In the meantime, she’s shared another new track in the form of “Iggy SZN”. As its title might suggest, the Aussie MC is declaring this point in history to be her time, spitting lines like “Bitches gonna hate while critics critique / I pay em no mind whenever they speak, what they make a year I can make in a week” over a vaguely electro beat of sputtering synths and hand claps. Whether you love or her not, her history-making resume does add true legitimacy to her endless swagger-drenched claims.

Listen in below (via HipHipNMore).

Gang Of Youths Benevolence Riots (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 23, 2014 10:03am | StereoGum

Australian indie-rockers Gang Of Youths play bold-yet-brooding music akin to Alligator-era the National. They’ve garnered radio spins on both sides of the Atlantic, appearances at CMJ and SXSW, and gigs with Sky Ferreira, Smith Westerns, and MS MR among others, and new single “Benevolence Riots” suggests all that attention has been well-deserved. A steady rhythmic churn and a piercing guitar riff serve as the basis for a story sung in David Leaupepe’s melodious baritone. The frontman offered some background on the subject matter:

Scott Walker & Sunn O))) Brando Video
Oct 23, 2014 9:57am | StereoGum

The enigmatic experimental music master and human myth Scott Walker just teamed up with drone-metal wraiths Sunn O))) to release an uncompromising collaborative album called Soused. And now the choreographer Gisèle Vienne has made a “short film” to accompany its opening track, the berserk nine-minute meditation “Brando.” The icily precise, cryptic video is full of near-motionless dancing and ominous tracking shots through fog-enshrouded forests. The French writer and actress Catherine Robbe-Grillet makes an appearance. Watch this strange, intense piece of work below.

Scott Walker and Sunn O))) turn Brando into bizarre horror film watch
Oct 23, 2014 9:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

Some of the best horror movies have nothing to do with how many liters of blood were used or the number of jump scares that occurred. Instead, the most frightening films bombard the audience with disturbing images and ideas and let us fill in the gaps with our own worst fears and preconceived notions. That seems to be the method adopted by Scott Walker and Sunn O))), who’ve presented something of a ’70s-inspired psycho-horror short film with their new video for “Brando”.

Directed by French artist/choreographer Gisèle Vienne, the clip is a befuddling tale of a mother and her son: what begins as apparently innocent bonding time turns in a surreal affair as the boy locks himself away and the mother undergoes some bizarre, dance-orientated break with reality. When an older, bureaucratic-looking woman arrives at the end, the flood of questions is almost physically overwhelming. With its Avant garde feel, pronounced erotic undertones, and well-timed use of a lil’ bit of gore, this clip draws true, visceral terror from the endless ocean of mystery you can’t help but dive into. Watch it below (via NPR).

“Brando” is the opening track of Walker and Sunn O)))’s collaborative album, Soused, out now via 4AD.

Bob Dylan Tupelo (John Lee Hooker Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 23, 2014 9:30am | StereoGum

For years, The Basement Tapes, Bob Dylan’s 1967 recordings with the Band, went unreleased; the heavily bootlegged album only saw release in 1975. And many of the songs that they recorded together still haven’t seen release, but that’s about to change. There’s a deluxe six-CD reissue of The Basement Tapes coming next month, and it includes songs that have never seen the light of day. We already posted one of those songs, the rockabilly pastiche “Dress It Up, Better Have It All.” Now we’ve got another, a cover of blues great John Lee Hooker’s talking blues song “Tupelo.” The original is a harrowing talking blues song about a flood destroying a town. Dylan and the Band used Muddy Waters’ “Mannish Boy” riff and played around with the lyrics, which Dylan couldn’t quite remember. Listen to their version below.
