Listen: Deafheaven From The Kettle Onto The Coil
Aug 22, 2014 11:55am | CMJ

Black metal heavyweights and critical darlings Deafheaven have just shared a stream of a new song called From The Kettle Onto The Coil, which will be available for free download exclusively through Adult Swim on August 25. The six-and-a-half minute jam begins in a typically pulverizing fashion, in a swirl of double-bass drums and frantic guitars. The song opens up about halfway through with a characteristically blistering, melodic guitar solo and eventually builds back to a gorgeous, soaring climax. Like all Adult Swim singles, it’s well worth a listen. Check it out below.

The post Listen: Deafheaven – “From The Kettle Onto The Coil” appeared first on CMJ.

Major Lazer cartoon series to air on Fox in 2015
Aug 22, 2014 11:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

Back in 2011, both Odd Future and Diplos alter ego Major Lazer were slated to get their very own Adult Swim shows. While the series from Tyler, the Creator and co. did come to fruition spawning lots of hilarious moments Major Lazer’s never saw air-time and seemed to be shelved indefinitely.

However, according to Billboard, Fox has now picked up the show and it’s finally set to debut in 2015. The animated series will reportedly follow a “Rasta superhero” (likely Major Lazer). It will also come with its own soundtrack, featuring new collaborations with Cat Power and RiFF RAFF.

Billboard reports that the launching of the Major Lazer cartoon will also coincide with the third Major Lazer album and follow-up to 2013’s Free The Universe. At the moment, he has 30 tracks already in the works.

In the meantime, Diplo has been busy collaborating with a handful of musicians, including Lorde, Sia, Skrillex, and yes, even Madonna. The highly-influential producer also just released his album, Random White Dude Be Everywhere. His estimated earnings for 2014 alone total about $12 million.

According to the Guardian, a 31-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy have been arrested on suspicion of raping a 19-year-old woman at this weekend’s Reading Festival in Reading, UK.

According to police, 21 crimes have been committed since the festival began on Wednesday night, including five alleged drugs offenses and 13 suspected thefts.

Watch: Shabazz Palaces #CAKE Video
Aug 22, 2014 11:23am | CMJ

Sub Pop has just shared an official video from much-buzzed experimental hip-hop group Shabazz Palaces. #CAKE is one of the most impressive tracks on the thoroughly impressive Lese Majesty, and showcases the deliberately unsettled and unsettling sound that Shabazz Palaces are already known for. It also features two striking verses from THEESatisfaction’s Catherine Harris-White. Every time she sings, the song’s groove shatters and slowly reassembles around her to incredible effect. Directed by Hiro Murai, who has also directed videos for the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, St. Vincent and the Shins, the video for #CAKE matches the song’s dark, mystical ethos.

Check out the video for #CAKE and the band’s tour dates, including a date at this weekend’s AFROPUNK fest in Brooklyn, below.

Tour Dates For Shabazz Palaces:
08/22 – Philadelphia, PA – Union Transfer**
08/23 – Brooklyn, NY – AFROPUNK @ Commodore Barry Park**

Reunited Babes In Toyland Are Rehearsing
Aug 22, 2014 11:17am | StereoGum

A couple of months ago, Kat Bjelland and Maureen Herman of ’90s alt-rock group Babes In Toyland confirmed that they’re getting back together to write new material and play shows. They’ve remained relatively quiet since then, but now we have evidence! A photo of the newly reunited band, including drummer Lori Barbero, has emerged on Tumblr, and you can see it above.


Orenda Fink released a new LP, touring (dates & video)
Aug 22, 2014 11:13am | Brooklyn Vegan

photo by Bill Sitzmann

Orenda Fink's been quite the prolific Saddle Creek artist for the past decade-plus. She spent time in the now-defunct (and missed) Now It's Overhead, she's in the long-running Azure Ray, has done one-off collaborations like Art in Manila (with members of The Anniversary, The Good Life and more) and O+S (with a member of Remy Zero), and has put out a handful of solo albums as well. Her newest, Blue Dream, came out this week (8/19) via the Omaha label and it's more of her quality work. It's singer/songwriter alt-pop made both with electronics and organic instrumentation. She's mentioned Kate Bush was an influence and that definitely shines through. Check out the video for "Ace of Cups" and stream another album track, below.

Orenda will be going on a tour from September through November. The tour stops in NYC for CMJ, but the exact shows she'll be playing that week are still TBA. Stay tuned.

All dates are listed, with the video and stream, below...

Listen: Deafheavens new song From The Kettle Onto The Coil
Aug 22, 2014 11:11am | Cosequence Of Sound

Last month, Deafheaven debuted a new song entitled “From The Kettle Onto The Coil” during their set at Pitchfork Music Festival. Today, the studio version has made its way online as the latest entry in the 2014 installment of Adult Swims Singles Program.

After re-invigorating the black metal scene with last years excellent Sunbather LP, Deafheaven return to basics with this latest single. The furious percussion and wailing guitars still crunch with similar monstrous intensity, but George Clarke’s snarling vocals make the whole thing feel more raw and primalistic. Theres some soaring tendencies ala Sunbather, but the band prove they absolutely smash when they want to.

Listen in below.

The 2014 Singles Program has featured new music from Giorgio Moroder, Speedy Ortiz, the Flying Lotus side project Captain Murphy, Future, Diarrhea Planet, Machinedrum, and Sleep, who offered up their first new track in 20 years, The Singles Program will continue each Monday for the next four weeks and features new music from Run The Jewels, Mastodon, and more. Consult the full schedule below.

Week 13 (September 1st) RP Boo
Week 14 (September 8th) Mastodon (feat. Butthole Surfers Gibby Haynes)
Week 15 (September 15th) Run The Jewels
Week 16 (September 22nd) KA

Deafheaven From The Kettle Onto The Coil
Aug 22, 2014 11:03am | StereoGum

We all know about “difficult” second albums and the notorious sophomore jinx, but what’s the cliche for a band that achieves modest success on their debut, but breaks big on LP2? What’s the common career arc for that band? What’s a reasonable expectation? It’s actually a pretty unusual phenomenon, one without enough relevant recent examples (those having occurred within, say, the last 25 years) to support a narrative. You’ve got, like, Nirvana, of course, who followed their second album, 1991′s Nevermind, with the comparatively ugly and challenging In Utero in 1993 before Kurt Cobain killed himself in ’94. You’ve also got Amy Winehouse, who died in 2011, five years after the release of her second album, Back To Black, having never released a follow-up. You’ve got My Bloody Valentine, who went 22 years between their second and third albums (1991′s Loveless and 2013′s m b v, respectively). You’ve got Neutral Milk Hotel, who released their second album, In The Aeroplane Over The Sea, in 1998, and as of today, 16 years later, have yet to even begin work on LP3. And then you’ve got the Fugees, who broke big with their sophomore LP, The Score, in 1996, but had more or less imploded by 1997, and have yet to stage even a successful reunion tour. Those are just some names that jump to my mind — I’m surely leaving out lo...

Watch: Tom Vek Pushing Your Luck Video
Aug 22, 2014 11:00am | CMJ

London’s Tom Vek has always had a knack for delivering infectious, talk-y synth pop with a distinctly punk attitude. The multi-talented Vek unveiled a brand new music video this morning for his song Pushing Your Luck, which finds him lip-syncing and individually performing each of the song’s instruments wearing sunglasses and an unchanging, badass deadpan. Pushing Your Luck is the second single and one of most brutally catchy tunes from his excellent third LP Luck, which was released earlier this summer on Moshi Moshi. Check out the video below, along with Vek’s upcoming U.K. and U.S. tour dates.

Liam Gallaghers Ice Bucket Challenge is quintessential Liam Gallagher
Aug 22, 2014 10:47am | Cosequence Of Sound

Even when donating to a good cause like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher manages to be his usual Liam Gallagher self  erratic and sometimes unnecessarily abrasive.

From his quirky ALS Ice Bucket Challenge nominations:

“I accept this challenge and nominate Spongebob Squarepants, Ivor the Engine, and, while we’re on cartoon characters, Noel Gallagher.”

To his priceless, grumbled comment after being doused in ice water:

“…fucking c*nt…”

Liam Gallagher accepting the challenge is quintessential Liam Gallagher:
