Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington reunite with Training Day director for Magnificent Seven
Mar 2, 2015 12:40pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington both received Oscar nods for their roles in Antoine Fuqua’s Training Day, with the latter going on to win Best Actor. Now, it looks like the trio is getting back together for MGM’s remake of Magnificent Seven.

Washington and Fuque are already signed on for the film, and reports have surfaced that Hawke has entered final negotiations. He would join a cast that also includes Chris Pratt and Haley Bennett.

Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen starred in the 1960 original, a western reimagining of Akira Kurosawa’s classic Seven Samurai from six years earlier. The story revolves around a group of seven hired gunmen who come together to protect a poor village in Mexico from constant raids by bandits. This latest remake was penned by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, The Alamo), who reworked a previous draft from Nic Pizzolatto (TV’s True Detective).

Below, watch a trailer for the original Magnificent Seven.

Caribou @ The Fillmore, S.F.: March 1, 2015
Mar 2, 2015 12:25pm | CMJ


With a sold-out crowd on hand, Caribou, aka Dan Snaith and friends, hypnotized the Fillmore with their human-crafted beats mixed with vibrant synth tones. But first, Koreless started the evening with futuristic beats mixed with down tempo bass drops. The crowd swayed yet held back, as if waiting for the real dance party to start…

With all four members decked out in white, Caribou marched on out and delivered hit after hit as the crowd pulsed and sang along to Our Love, Can’t Do Without You, Odessa, along with an encore of Sun.

Caribou started off as a solo project of Snaith, but the live incarnation has pushed him and his mates to another level. With Our Love (Merge) dropping in 2014, Caribou has continued to garner the reputation of a premiere band to see in person. Each band member seems to mix and match not just as background figure but as a large piece of the puzzle that makes Caribou so electric on stage. As the lights flickered and drummer Brad Weber laid down the hypnotic tempos, Snaith couldn’t help smile as the Fillmore heaved and bounced to each jam all night long.

The Short, Strange Music Career Of Leonard Nimoy
Mar 2, 2015 12:15pm | StereoGum
Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday at the age of 83. The actor was best known for playing the alien Mr. Spock on the 1960s TV show Star Trek and in multiple associated movies beginning in the late 1970s and running all the way to 2013. But there was much more to him than that […]



Courtney Barnett shares new song Depreston listen

Courtney Barnett has shared a new song from her forthcoming debut LP, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. “Depreston” forgoes the angry rock of previously revealed single “Pedestrian at Best”, relying more on mellowed indie folk sounds. Even so, the track puts the Australian songwriter’s playful lyricism on display (“Its got a lovely garden/ a garage for two cars to park in/ or a lot of room for storage if youve just got one) as she examines the depression of California real estate.

Check out the visuals for the song below, and find the full lyrics in the YouTube video’s description.

Sometimes I Sit is due March 24th on Mom + Pop Records. In support of the release, Barnett has mapped out an extensive world tour with stops at pretty much every festival ever, including Bonnaroo, Newport Folk, BottleRock, and Sasquatch!. See the full itinerary here, and see the album tracklist below.

Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit Tracklist:
01. Elevator Operator
02. Pedestrian at Best
03. An Illustration of Loneliness (Sleepless in NY)
04. Small Poppies
05. Depreston
06. Aqua Profunda!
07. Dead Fox
08. Nobody Really Cares if You Dont Go to the Party
09. Debbie Downer
10. Kims Caravan
11. Boxing Day Blues



Nocturnal Sunshine Take Me There
Mar 2, 2015 12:14pm | StereoGum
Two years ago on the Fourth of July I saw Maya Jane Coles play a set at one of Verboten’s all-day outdoor parties. It was scalding hot, and the party was held right on the Williamsburg waterfront. That might sound glamorous, but it’s basically just a huge slab of asphalt surrounded by old warehouses. Still, […]

Mar 2, 2015 12:07pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Oklahoma’s Broncho and their sophomore album Just Hip Enough To Be A Woman is one of those album’s that just keeps on giving despite the month or season. Today, they have their latest single “NC-17″ getting the video treatment with direction by George Salisbury. The video features a young man acting out and, according to Salisbury, shows “the corruption of youth going both ways.” He continues, “Kids run towards it, I know I did, and sometimes they have a few tricks of their own.” Watch below and make sure to look for them at a city near you in the coming months.


Delicate Steve working with Paul Simon, releasing live album (listen), touring, playing SXSW, & NYC w/ No Chief

Delicate Steve and Paul Simon in the studio (via Delicate Steve)

While Delicate Steve's records, like 2011's Wondervisions, are very good, they are really a band known for their live shows, thanks in no small part to main man Steve Marion's guitar skills. So it makes sense that Delicate Steve would release a document of their on-stage prowess, in the form of Live in Las Vegas, which will be out on Tuesday (3/3) via their bandcamp page. It was recorded while on tour with Tame Impala at Las Vegas' branch of Brooklyn Bowl and you can listen to the whole album below.

As for studio news, Steve Marion has been working with Paul Simon. What fruits that collaboration will bear remains to be seen. Stay tuned.

You can also catch Delicate Steve in their element when the band heads out on tour this month, including multiple appearances at Austin's SXSW festival. The band will play NYC on the way back at Brooklyn's Brooklyn Bowl on April 23 with Sebadoh offshoot No Chief and Erica Esso. Tickets are on sale now.

Stream Never Young Never Young EP
Mar 2, 2015 12:06pm | StereoGum
The Bay Area band Never Young make an erratic, guttural racket that owes a lot to hardcore without ever quite being hardcore. Their music is dense and loud and chaotic enough that I reached for Enon and Blood Brothers comparisons the first time I heard it. Never Young’s self-titled debut EP is coming out next […]



Om Unit and Sam Binga make drumnbass sound weightless on Wei from their Transatlantic EP
Mar 2, 2015 12:06pm | Fact Magazine

The club music deconstructionists Om Unit and Sam Binga join forces once again on their upcoming EP.

When Om Unit (Jim Coles) and Sam Binga recently shared the opener ‘Onionz‘ from their upcoming Transatlantic EP they tagged it as “#weirdstep”. That silly tag doesn’t quite get across the otherworldly qualities they bring to drum and bass on their new EP, but it’s hard to think of any word that would. The two sound even more singular on the closing track ‘Wei’ which takes weighty bass tones and blends them with snaps, processed vocal choruses to create something that’s heavy, feather-light, and constantly unpredictable all at once.

Listen below and grab Transatlantic starting today.

After nearly 40 years with the B-52s, Kate Pierson has proven the band’s seemingly eternal significance with a feisty solo debut, Guitars & Microphones. The album was executive produced by Sia, with production work from Ima Robots Tim Anderson and the Strokes Nick Valensi on guitar, making for a beefed up take on the group’s […]

Since settling their 15-year feud late last year, Billy Corgan and Marilyn Manson have been seen rekindling their friendship. In December, the cat-loving frontman and The Pale Emperor himself performed the Smashing Pumpkins classic “Ava Adore” together in London. The two joined forces yet again, this time at Sydney’s Soundwave Festival over the weekend to rattle off the same Adore highlight.

Cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd, Corgan and Manson rocked side by side, feeding off one another’s chemistry as though they’d been touring together for years. Watch fan-caught footage below.

Manson’s no stranger to surprise collaborations this year; last month, he and 8th grade metal band Unlocking The Truth teamed up for a broiling performance of “The Beautiful People”.



Sub Pop astral travelers THEESatisfaction introduce their quietly thrilling new album EarthEE
Mar 2, 2015 11:55am | Fact Magazine

The Seattle duo of Stasia “Stas” Irons and Catherine “Cat” Harris-White, better known as THEESatisfaction, have a striking new album out soon on Sub Pop titled EarthEE  their first for the label in three years.

As well as contributions from friends and allied artists including Shabazz Palaces, Erik Blood and two striking turns from Meshell Ndegeocello the focus remains on the powerful interplay between Stas and Cat, with the formers MCing and the latters singing intertwining in a series of ruminations on states of mind, which play out over creative, often quietly thrilling arrangements that ground the performances as much as letting them fly.

What should have been a detailed conversation with the duo was plagued with choppy connection problems on my end, and the following conservation partially relies on notes as well as the recording. Both Cat and Stas could not have been more patient and gracious in their answers, however, as they considered the latest effort in their now seven-year partnership.

Could you first talk about your creative process in general at this point does everything tend to come together pretty quickly?

Cat: It took us a couple of years to complete the project. We had songs that we were working on before and we took a little bit of time, we were crafting it a while. But towards the end when we working together with E...
