Watch FKA twigs premiere new song Figure 8
Jan 30, 2015 9:05am | Fact Magazine

A tantalizing taste of what’s to come.

FKA twigs is touring the world in support of last year’s masterful LP1, and while her sets are loaded with fan favorites from her debut album and the two EPs that preceded it, it appears that she’s also toying with new material.

Last night in Melbourne, twigs performed ‘Figure 8′; watch fan Ryan Teki’s footage above, via Dazed. Time will tell if this the first glimpse of her rumored EP3.

Jazmine Sullivan released 'Reality Show,' touring (dates and album stream)
Jan 30, 2015 8:58am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Philly neo-soul singer Jazmine Sullivan has been active for over a decade, releasing albums and collaborating with Missy Elliot, Robert Glasper, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and others. Earlier this month, she put out her third album, Reality Show, on RCA, which followed 2008's Fearless and 2010's Love Me Back.

The album features Meek Mill on the excellent opening track "Dumb," and after that it's just Jazmine in the spotlight atop masterful production from Key Wane (Big Sean's Hall of Fame, Beyonce's "Partition"), DJ Dahi (Drake's "Worst Behavior, Kendrick Lamar's "Money Trees") and others. Not unlike recent albums by Frank Ocean and Beyonce, it's got a foot in traditional '60s/'70s soul, but an eye on the recent progressions the genre has been making too. It's really good. Listen to the whole album for yourself, below.

Jazmine has three shows coming up this March, including one in NYC happening March 11 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for that show go on sale at 10 AM today (1/30).

All dates are listed, with the LP stream and the video for one of the songs, below...

Hozier Problem (Ariana Grande Cover)
Jan 30, 2015 8:55am | StereoGum

Full disclosure: I tend to hate covers. If you’re going to cover a song, make it really different, make it unusual, or don’t record it at all. It can, however, be interesting to listen to someone genre-bend a track and transform it from pop R&B into something that anyone listening to classic rock radio wouldn’t mind hearing during their morning commute. Enter Hozier, Irish troubadour and unlikely pop sensation who we’ve heard cover the Arctic Monkeys in the past, a band that is definitely a bit more in-line with his aesthetic than Ariana Grande’s massive single, “Problem.” If anything, the cover reinforces all of my prejudices — he doesn’t even attempt to belt out Iggy Azalea’s verse at the end. Instead, he turns it into a halfassed take on Warren G’s “Regulate.” (Scott likes the cover, though.) Decide for yourself below.


Coyote to release vinyl edition of Last Japans Harca: stream Tom E Vercettis remix
Jan 30, 2015 8:54am | Fact Magazine

Rising grime label Coyote continue their white label series with a vinyl pressing of Last Japan.’s ‘Harca’.

The Bow-based producer – who went Against the Clock on FACT TV this week – featured ‘Harca’ on last year’s cassette / digital mixtape Ride With Us, and Coyote enjoyed the track so much they’ve decided to grant it a release on wax. Remixes come from ex-Cult member Forever Forever and new Coyote recruit Tom E Vercetti.

Speaking to FACT, Vercetti says that “‘Harca’ was the standout track from Ride With Us, so I was really pleased to be asked to remix it. Its a really colourful track so I wanted to retain that feeling while adding my own twist to it. I wanted to take a melodic approach and tried to expand on some of the melodies in the original, rather than stripping it back too much.”

“Having written and released ‘Harca’ in the first half of 2014″, says Last Japan. “It has probably been one of the only tracks of mine that I’ve consistently played in every set since. Only releasing it digitally meant the record, to me, felt like it had lost some of its tangibility, so when Coyote approached me to release it as a white label, it was a no brainer. The remixes compliment the original perfectly as two great interpretations of the track – I couldn’t be happie...

It Sure Seems Like Neil Youngs Pono Player Is Bullshit
Jan 30, 2015 8:50am | StereoGum

Last year, Neil Young launched a Kickstarter campaign to create a new digital music player called Pono, the idea being that it would serve as a high-quality alternative to the MP3s that he felt had degraded sound quality and fucked up the way everyone heard music. Young raised more than six million dollars on the campaign, exceeding his goal many times over. And now you can buy a Pono player for a cool $400, and you can pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 for a whole lot of classic-rock albums at the Pono store. But does Pono actually offer an audible upgrade over what the way-less-expensive iTunes store offers? A lot of tech people seem very, very skeptical.

Múm Slow Down Video
Jan 30, 2015 8:33am | StereoGum

Icy Swedish electronic band Múm have shared a video for “Slow Down,” a track off of their 2013 album Smilewound. The video is an experimental, impressionistic look at the opposing forces of “elemental man” and “elemental woman,” which is what directors F.D. Cristian and Elma Dögg Steingrímsdóttir call the two main characters that appear. “Essentially what we ended up with was a man and a woman each caught in a netherworld, each seeking warmth, surrounding an urban interior scene of people who are a little bored, distracted and maybe looking for some meaning in stories and music,” they explained to The Reykjavík Grapevine.

Eddie Murphy to return to Saturday Night Live for first time in 30 years
Jan 30, 2015 8:30am | Cosequence Of Sound

Eddie Murphy made his mark on Saturday Night Live in the 1980s before going on to become one of the highest grossing actors in the history of cinema. Now, for the first time since he left the program over 30 years ago, Murphy will be returning to the SNL stage.

Murphy will appear during the show’s three-hour 40th anniversary special airing Sunday, February 15th. The comedian let the news slip during an interview with Roland Martin on NewsOne Now. Martin asked why Murphy had never appeared on the show since his departure, to which he replied, “Its just timing. It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it. He added, “Theyre actually having a 40th anniversary I think in two weeks. Im going to that, and thatll be the first time Ive been back since I left.

Watch the whole interview, during which Murphy also discusses his return to music, at Mediaite.

(Read: Saturday Night Live’s Top Musical Performances)

In a 2011 interview on Ellen, Murphy explained that he felt SNL treated him poorly after he left, but that he’d put it behind him. I would go back if it was the right stuff, situation, he said. It was years ago. I dont have any bad blood with that show. And that show is such a big part of my past. I love being part of it. Yeah, I wanna go back.

Drake returns to headline Londons Wireless festival after last years no-show
Jan 30, 2015 8:30am | Fact Magazine

Drake is headlining this year’s Wireless festival.

Sound familiar? That’s because Drizzy was supposed to play last year’s weekender, but was forced to pull out at the last minute on doctor’s orders. Kanye West stepped in to fill his slot on the London leg of the festival, while Birmingham fans got a dose of Rudimental.

But all is forgiven because Drake is having another go at headlining the event he’s booked to play the Friday of the rebranded New Look Wireless, which takes place from July 3-5 at London’s Finsbury Park (no Birmingham leg this year).

Avicii and David Guetta will bring the EDM pyrotechnics to their headline slots on Saturday and Sunday respectively, while elsewhere on the line-up there’s hip-hop from Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar and Joey Bada$$, chart-dance from Gorgon City, Clean Bandit and Duke Dumont, and some old school teachings from Grandmaster Flash and Arrested Development.

Day tickets cost from £62.50 – £69.50 across the weekend and multi-day tickets will also be available. All passes will go on sale from 9am on February 3. [via Time Out]

Sufjan Stevens performed 'Round-Up' at BAM; tour tickets on sale today
Jan 30, 2015 8:30am | Brooklyn Vegan

The music is performed by Mr. Stevens, on keyboards and electronics, and Yarn/Wire, a contemporary chamber group of two pianists and two percussionists. Although one segment had a beat on drum and rattle, vaguely suggesting Native American music (the rodeo includes a Native American parade in traditional costumes) the score avoided Oregon's local color for what might be BAM's local color: minimalist contemplation. It was full of glimmering sounds -- bowed vibraphone, pretty piano chords -- with, now and then, something staticky or sprockety from Mr. Stevens's electronics. For each segment -- concentrating on one rodeo event, intercutting various competitors and performers -- Mr. Stevens chose a strategy and stuck to it: a certain texture, a certain beat, perhaps with chromatic meanderings, perhaps not. Calf roping got running, Bachian counterpoint, while a segment with a lone calf had Yarn/Wire singing a cappella harmonies. [NY Times]
Sufjan Stevens wrapped up the world premiere of his new piece, Round-Up, earlier this week, which ran from January 20-25 at BAM. The quote above is from NY Times' review of one of the performances. Did you catch one?

As you may know, Sufjan's next project is his upcoming album, Carrie & Lowell, which is due out March 31 via Asthmatic Kitty. He's calling it a return to his folk roots, which is what made us fall in love with him in the first place. Tickets for hi...

Marilyn Manson is back (?), cancels Long Island, but played rescheduled Terminal 5 show (pics)
Jan 30, 2015 8:20am | Brooklyn Vegan

"I'd just like to reiterate here: it's 2015, I'm seeing Marilyn Manson tonight, life is wonderful" - Nick DeSimone

"It's 2015 and I'm listening to a new Marilyn Manson album and not hating it and WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING?" - Steven W Beattie

"It's 2015. I'm 32. And I'm thoroughly enjoying a new Marilyn Manson record." - Jordan Campbell

"At Marilyn Manson's concert tonight @ Terminal 5 & was shocked 2 hear him dedicate "Sweet Dreams" 2 his friend of 20 years, Michael Alig!"" - Michael Alig

Marilyn Manson released his ninth album, The Pale Emperor, this year which some are calling a comeback. He's on tour in support of it now, and hit NYC last night (1/29) at Terminal 5, which was rescheduled from January 26 due to Winter Storm Juno. Did you catch the show? Do you agree that he's once again risen to relevance? Was he ever relevant to begin with?

Opening the show was Unlocking the Truth, the very young Brooklyn metal band with a $1.8 million deal with Sony and an upcoming Bonnaroo appearance. Pictures of the night are in this post.

Marilyn was also supposed to play Long Island's Paramount Theatre on 1/27 but due to the weather, that show was 100% cancelled and won't be rescheduled. Refunds are available.

Death Cab for Cutie performs Black Sun on Letterman watch
Jan 30, 2015 8:17am | Cosequence Of Sound

The new look Death Cab for Cutie made their TV debut on Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday night. Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer, and Jason McGerr, along with new members Dave Depper and Zac Rae, previewed their forthcoming album Kintsugi by performing the lead single “Black Sun”. Watch the replay at CBS’ website (the band’s performance begins at the 38:00 mark).

For his part, Letterman seemed more interested in whether the Washington-based band had ever climbed Mount Rainier.

Death Cab will release Kintsugi on March 31st via Atlantic Records. In addition to “Black Sun”, the band has offered live performances of album tracks “No Room in Frame” and “The Ghost of Beverly Drive”.

In support of the release, the band recently announced an extensive North American tour. Consequence of Sound contributor Dan Bogosian caught their gig in Brooklyn this week and says they successfully demonstrated the ability to survive guitarist Chris Walla’s departure.
