MIA unveils new single 'Bring The Noize'
Jun 17, 2013 2:33pm | NME
She explains that finishing her new album 'Matangi' has not been easy
Song : M.I.A. :
Jun 17, 2013 2:30pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
Mantangi, the long-awaited fourth LP from M.I.A. has gone through some issues since its announcement. It was supposed to be released in April, but supposedly was deemed too positive by her label Interscope Records. Since, she has been reworking to darken the subject matter a bit and should anticipate a release around early fall. Over the weekend, we heard a snippet of a new song “Bring The Noize” via Vine, but now get the song in full via Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 show. Listen below.

MIA has returned once again, in a maelstrom of Yeezus and RAM and such, to deliver the new-new. The track, which sounds like a Switch beat, has MIA bringing through all the noises, fierce delivery and a strobe light instrumental:
Chief Keef is arrested in Chicago. Again.
Jun 17, 2013 2:26pm | Fact Magazine
That’s the shit he don’t like.
Bitches might love Sosa, but it seems the police are not so eager to throw Keith Cozart a bone. Literally moments after he brushed off his recent speeding charge with nothing more than a warning, the Chicago rapper was arrested outside of the courthouse by local police officers and is now detained in the city’s Southside.
There’s no word on what the charge is yet, but after the last year of brushes with the law we’re guessing it really could be anything. Eating a footlong sub in public maybe, or possibly the cops just took a listen to Keef’s frankly criminal new single (below). [via Fake Shore Drive]
This story is developing and will be updated.

UK rockers Foals have once again teamed up with director Nabil Elderkin, this time shooting an epic video for the Holy Fire standout “Bad Habit”. After the band’s adventure’s in Romania for “Late Night”, this latest clip sees frontman Yannis Philippakis chasing a naked woman through a desert. (And here we thought The Proclaimers were the pinnacle of dedicated lovers.) Watch what is a truly stinging allegory of this writer’s love life below.

Son Volt @ MHOW, 6/15/2013
Of course, sales of albums and tickets aren't necessarily the true measure of achievement, and Farrar and his bandmates seemed quite happy to be perched on their own rung on the ladder of success. Well, maybe "happy" isn't exactly the right word, because no one has ever accused Farrar of being a happy guy. His stage presence is nearly nonexistent, and he spoke only a handful of words throughout the band's 90-minute show. His singing voice doesn't have much range, either, but it rings true, and in country music, that's what matters most. Fortunately, guitarist Gary Hunt and bassist Andrew Duplantis stepped in to add some occasional vocal harmonies because a night of nothing but Farrar's vocals could prove quite soporific. - [Albany Times Union]After hitting Albany (where the above review is from), Son Volt's tour rolled into NYC over the weekend for two shows -- Friday (6/14) at Bowery Ballroom and Saturday (6/14) at Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of the Northside Festival. Colonel Ford (aka all of Son Volt except frontman Jay Farrar) opened the show. Pictures from Saturday's show (including one of the setlist) are in this post.

If Anyone Could Drum for 24-Hours Straight, It's Andrew W.K....
Jun 17, 2013 2:09pm | The Daily Swarm
As part of Viacom’s O Music Awards 24-hour live-stream, Andrew W.K. will attempt to perform the longest drum solo ever in a retail space (in case you’re wondering if the “retail space” distinction in needed – it is, the overall record is 121 hours). The self-appointed “Party King” will begin at 7 p.m. EST on Wednesday, June 19th with Questlove from the Roots being helping to kick things off.
W.K. will be joined by several legendary drummers, but is remaining tight-lipped on who exactly. He told The Hollywood Reporter that he’s been practicing by air drumming with weights instead of sticks (so badass!) saying, “I’d rather be over-prepared.”
Listen to M.I.A.
Jun 17, 2013 1:52pm | Cosequence Of Sound
M.I.A. should stand for Monday Is Alright: As promised, Ms. Maya debuted her new single, “Bring the Noize”, on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show this afternoon. Take a listen to the hyper-glitchy, politically-charged banger below.
Speaking to Lowe, M.I.A. said the song’s release comes at an appropriate time in America’s history. “Having to deal with the concept of freedom in more ways than one, and I’ve been in America since September with all the numbers of front pages, now is a good time to release it,” she explained, no doubt alluding to Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden, and recent revelations of the country’s intelligence efforts. She added, “Conceptually, it’s everything, everywhere. People anywhere can listen to it.”
Presumably, “Bring the Noize” is taken from her long-in-the-works fourth studio album, Matangi, due out later this year. She told Lowe that she’s had difficulties finishing the album, and it’s likely that Matangi will be her last full-length effort. “It’s just one of those things where I’ve given up at this point. I was literally going to start putting out records from my bedroom. This was my last stab at it– I’m going to hand it in and wait for it to go out the way albums go out. If I didn’t get it out right now, I would’ve definitely exploded.”

Your Guide to 'Yeezus' Talking Points...
Jun 17, 2013 1:47pm | The Daily Swarm
Hooray! Yeezus is here! Now, you just need some insightful things to say about Kanye’s biggest artistic statement to date. If you’re like us, West’s sixth album left you a little speechless; so it helps to have a gander at what the top critics are saying.
Alexis Pretridis of The Guardian can’t decide whether the album was created by someone extremely delusional or touching greatness, but Yeezus succeeds in being the provocative album that music needs, either way.

Despite an initial April release date, M.I.A.’s fourth studio full-length, Matangi, has been temporarily shelved for allegedly being “too positive.” Over the weekend, we heard a snippet of skittering but spritely and “Me And Bobby McGee”-referencing new cut “Bring The Noize” but it was debuted in full on Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 show this afternoon. She told Lowe on-air that she keeps handing in her album, but the label will not accept it. It is, however, slated for release in the fall. Check out “Bring The Noize” below.

Co.Fee, aka Kofi Sefa-Boakye, in ‘Not A Beat, Not A Scene’
Daedelus, aka Alfred Darlington, and a handful of producers team up with director Tom MacVicar to document L.A.’s beat scene in a new 10-minute film. Soundtracked by the music of Shlohmo, Juj, and Daedelus, the documentary, Not A Beat, Not A Scene, finds Darlington speaking about the importance of the L.A. club Low End Theory and the various backgrounds many of the artists come from. The music emerging from L.A. has captured the minds of young artists for better part of the last decade and it’s fitting that someone that has been a staple in the scene has been tapped to help document it. Not to mention the film has a killer soundtrack.
Since 2001 Daedelus has explored IDM and beats through the lens of a classically trained musician. He’s released music on Plug Research, Warp Records, Ninja Tune, Stones Thrown, Soul Jazz, and many more. Besides creating a handful of challenging records he’s known for his distinct live show that revolves around controlled chaos. Watch Not a Beat, Not a Scene via Daily Swarm, below.

Torche @ 285 Kent, 6/14/2013
285 Kent has seen it's share of wildness over the years, but Friday night during Northside Festival was a different animal. Floridian bubblegum-sludge favorites Torche headlined the space along with KEN Mode, Lo-Pan and Inter Arma, one of only a handful of metal shows to grace the space (Pitchfork's Show No Mercy was another). More photos and video from the show are up at InvisibleOranges.
The show was one of two Inter Arma shows in Brooklyn, with the band also hitting Union Pool the next day as part of an Invisible Oranges event for Summer Thunder where they were joined by Anicon and Pyrrhon.
