Coliseum White Magic Punks (Justin K. Broadrick Sorcerer Remix) (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 25, 2014 11:48am | StereoGum

Last year, Louisville post-hardcore trio Coliseum gave the world a shot of adrenaline in the form of their best LP yet, the ferocious Sister Faith. And now, in December, they’re putting out a remix 12″ of Sister Faith lead single “Black Magic Punks,” featuring reinterpretations by the likes of Cold Cave, Atsuo of Boris, and Jawbox’s J. Robbins, who also produced the album. The first cut we’re hearing from that release is “White Magic Punks,” billed as a “Sorcerer” remix from Justin K. Broadrick of industrial metal titans Godflesh (who just put out an album of their own for the first time in 13 years). In Broadrick’s hands, the energetic stomp of the original becomes a slow, pummeling beast, a towering, continuously cresting tidal wave of sludge that doesn’t let up until its four minutes are over. Let it wash over you below.

The Black Market: The Month In Metal November 2014
Nov 25, 2014 11:32am | StereoGum

If you care about metal, you really should subscribe to Decibel, because as far as I’m concerned, it’s not only a source of great writing — not only a place to discover new music and have new light shed upon familiar music — but a barometer for the genre. It’s the authority, the standard, the publication of record. In many ways, all other metal journalism today is either a reaction or alternative to Decibel. That’s not to say I agree with everything written in its pages, but I never feel like anything written in its pages is wrong. Anyway, Decibel’s Best Of 2014 issue dropped in my mailbox last week, and that issue included the magazine’s list of the year’s 40 best albums. I’m gonna go ahead and spoil that list below, so if you’re still waiting for your copy and you want to initially experience the list as it was intended to be read (counted down from #40 to #1, on glossy pages, with writeups for each record), then you should close this page right now, and come back when you’ve had a chance to peep the magazine. (You can buy the print edition here.) But I like to talk about lists, and so do you, so let’s talk about this one:

Authorized Kurt Cobain documentary Montage of Heck to feature unheard originals
Nov 25, 2014 11:31am | Fact Magazine

HBO will air the first “fully authorized” doc on the late-great Nirvana frontman.

Montage of Heck will premiere on HBO next year. Directed by Brett Morgen (the director of the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary documentary Crossfire Hurricane), the film is being billed as the first “fully authorized” documentary about Cobain; it was made with participation from his family, and daughter Frances Bean Cobain served as an executive producer.

The documentary features “dozens of Nirvana songs and performances as well as perviously unheard Cobain originals,” along with “no-holds-barred access to Kurt Cobains archives, home to his never-before-seen home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals, demos, personal archives, family archives and songbooks,” according to a press release. Morgen says:

I started work on this project eight years ago. Like most people, when I started, I figured there would be limited amounts of fresh material to unearth. However, once I stepped into Kurts archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media.

Montage of Heck is titled after ...


Jurassic World trailer premieres online watch
Nov 25, 2014 11:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park film franchise and first in 13 years, will hit theaters on June 12th, 2015. In anticipation, the first trailer for the film has been released. Watch it below.

The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D’Onofrio, and is directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed). Steven Spielberg, who helmed the first two Jurassic Park films, serves as an executive producer.

Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, the trailer makes three things clear: 1. There are dinosaurs underwater now, 2. There are genetically-modified, super dinosaurs, and 3. Chris Pratt’s saving next summer again — with raptors.



Petite Noir Chess Video
Nov 25, 2014 11:07am | StereoGum

“Chess” is the lead single off of Petite Noir’s forthcoming debut EP The King Of Anxiety. Today Yannick Iluga’s project released a retro video by director Cieron Magat that emanates the dream-like, solitary quality of the song. Iluga sings in uncanny falsetto before his voice sinks to unimaginable depths about two minutes into the track. Watch below.

I cant f**king stand EDM anymore: Skream bites back
Nov 25, 2014 11:06am | Fact Magazine

10 years on from Midnight Request Line, its safe to say that Skream has become a different artist entirely.

You already know salad days Skream – the spirited teenager who became one of the defining faces of the early ’00s Croydon sound, and, through his various productions, collaborations and remixes, brought dubstep into the charts and the public consciousness. Recent years, however, have seen him focus his energies on 4×4, ranging from disco to none-more-’14 house (his recent Essential Mix, featuring tracks from Hot Natured, Route 94,  Jess Glynne and M.A.N.D.Y, says it all).

Once an industrious producer, cranking out his Skreamizm releases at a rate of knots in the ’00s, Skream’s output has slowed in recent years. Still, the last year has brought us a new label, Of Unsound Mind, the occasional single (including a release on 4×4 imprint Boysnoize) and a few choice WTFs for good measure (covering Smiths tunes with a Morrissey impersonator, crashing an episode of Newsnight)

Although not the first of the dubstep diaspora to have defected to house or techno, Skreams got the most stick for it – and whether you have him pegged as a nomad or a dilettante, hes certainly been willing to push out of his comfort zone. FACT caught up with Skream at Italy’s Movement f...


Joni Mitchell pulled plug on biopic over Taylor Swifts involvement
Nov 25, 2014 11:05am | Cosequence Of Sound

Music biopics have emerged as one of Hollywood’s favorite trends as of late. Currently in the works are films about Brian Wilson, Hank Williams, N.W.A., Guns ‘n’ Roses, and, as confirmed just last week, Janis Joplin. However, don’t expect to see a biopic about Joni Mitchell anytime soon.

In a new interview with The Sunday Times (via NME), Mitchell revealed plans for a 2012 film adaptation of Sheila Weller’s book Girls Like Us, which chronicled the legacies of Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon. The film would have starred Jessica Pare (Mad Men) as Simon, Alison Pill (The Newsroom) as King, and none other than Taylor Swift as Mitchell.

However, as Mitchell explained, she shot down the project due to Swift’s involvement and gossipy nature of the plot. “I squelched that! I said to the producer, ‘All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones’. It’s just a lot of gossip, you don’t have the great scenes. There’s a lot of nonsense about me in books, assumptions, assumptions, assum­p­tions.”

In related news, Mitchell recently released a new career spanning anthology called Love Has Many Faces.



HBO Announces First Fully-Authorized Kurt Cobain Documentary Montage Of Heck, Exec Produced By Frances Bean
Nov 25, 2014 11:01am | StereoGum

There have been more than enough unauthorized documentaries and biographies about Kurt Cobain. Next year, though, HBO will release the first fully authorized Cobain documentary. The film will be called Montage Of Heck, and its executive producer is Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean. It will be written, directed, and produced by filmmaker Brett Morgen (Crossfire Hurricane, The Kid Stays In The Picture). Said Morgen in a statement, “I started work on this project eight years ago. Like most people, when I started, I figured there would be limited amounts of fresh material to unearth. However, once I stepped into Kurt’s archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media.” Here’s something that’s maybe worth mentioning, too: The name “Courtney Love” does not appear once in the Montage Of Heck press release. Here’s the important stuff that does appear in that release:

No Devotion Stay (Ricky Eat Acid Remix)
Nov 25, 2014 11:01am | StereoGum

If you follow Geoff Rickly, the former frontman of post-hardcore greats Thursday, on Twitter, you’ll notice that he’s forged a deep bond with the twinkly Brooklyn dance-music tinkerer Ricky Eat Acid. Rickly currently splits his time between United Nations, the roiling hardcore band, and No Devotion, his new synth-rock band with the non-monstrous former members of Lostprophets. And now Ricky Eat Acid has remixed “Stay,” No Devotion’s debut single, turning it into a disorienting pileup of sped up voices and drums that come down like rain. Listen to the remix below.

TV On The Radio @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg: November 21, 2014
Nov 25, 2014 10:45am | CMJ


During one of three sold-out shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg last weekend, TV On The Radio showed few signs that this was some sort of “comeback,” though the band has been under wraps for a while. But with a fine new album and no slippage in the live department on this night, expect TVOTR to resume their place at the top of the alt-rock world.

Natasha Kmeto set up the evening with her impressive vocie and creatively skronky soul-pop mixes.

Killer Mike delivers tearful speech on Ferguson decision
Nov 25, 2014 10:39am | Chart Attack

Last night a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri refused to indict police officer Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown. The black teenager was gunned down in August, and his death has sparked protests across the world. Once again, musicians are collecting their voices against police brutality and the racist system that protects it.

After the jury's decision and during the resulting rage that swept through Ferguson's protests, Killer Mike and El-P took the stage at St. Louis's Ready Room to promote RTJ2, their second album as Run The Jewels. Before the show a choked up Killer Mike spoke on the decision.

"Tonight, I got kicked on my ass when I listened to that prosecutor," said Mike as El-P stood silently besides him. "I have a twenty-year-old son and a twelve-year-old son and I am so afraid for them."

But Killer Mike also tried, as he has done for months, to turn Brown's death and the aftermath into a teachable moment. "It is not about race, it is not about class, it is not about colour, it is about what they killed him for. It is about poverty, it is about greed, it is about a war machine that uses you as a battery."

Protesters also filled the streets of New York. Okayafrica captured video of rapper/producer Q-Tip chanting with a crowd.

RZA says "a better tomorrow is a vegan tomorrow"
Nov 25, 2014 10:39am | Brooklyn Vegan

Vegan and Wu-Tang Clan member RZA helped PETA out by speaking in their new promotional video, where he says he wants you to go vegan for "a better tomorrow." It's also a pretty good cross-promotional tool considering one of Wu Tang's two new albums is called A Better Tomorrow and is due out next week (12/2) via Warner Bros. Watch the new PETA video and stream A Better Tomorrow's recent single, "Necklace," below...

Michael Fassbender to play Steve Jobs in biopic
Nov 25, 2014 10:38am | Cosequence Of Sound

It appears the forthcoming Steve Jobs biopic being helmed by Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle has finally found its leading man. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Fassbender has signed on to play Apple’s co-founder.

Fassbender’s casting comes after both Leonard DiCaprio and Christian Bale dropped out of consideration for the project. The revolving door cast reportedly spooked Sony Pictures, who dropped the film last week. However, just days later, Univerial Pictures adopted the film with Sorkin, Boyle, and Fassbender in tow.

It was previously reported that Seth Rogen was in talks to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in the film — however, that casting has yet to be confirmed.

Sorkin and Boyle’s film will be the second Steve Jobs biopic since the death of the Apple co-founder in 2011. Ashton Kutcher previously starred in Jobs, which was released in 2013.



Joni Mitchell Squashed Biopic Starring Taylor Swift
Nov 25, 2014 10:38am | StereoGum

Back in 2012, Taylor Swift was attached to star in a movie based on the 2008 book Girls Like Us, a biography that detailed the rise of Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon. Swift would have starred as Mitchell opposite a cast that could have included Mad Men’s Jessica Pare as Simon and The Newsroom’s Alison Pill as King. The film never got past the idea stage, however, and in a new interview with The Sunday Times (via NME), Joni Mitchell is taking credit for halting the film: “I squelched that! I said to the producer, ’All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones.’ It’s just a lot of gossip, you don’t have the great scenes. [...] There’s a lot of nonsense about me in books. Assumptions, assumptions, assumptions.”
