Song : Alabama Shakes :
May 22, 2013 11:56am | My Old Kentucky Blog
While I have never really been able to get into the HBO show True Blood, their latest soundtrack for the series is something to get behind. Scheduled for release on May 28th via ATO Records, it features the likes of My Morning Jacket, Deep Valley, The Flaming Lips, and Warpaint to name a few. Additionally, everyone’s favorite down home mamajamas Alabama Shakes are contributing a new one titled “Pocket Change.” It is a simple little throwback ditty that would be perfect to throw on for your next backyard BBQ. Stream it below.

Watch A New Boards Of Canada Video Screened In Tokyo Yesterday
May 22, 2013 11:48am | StereoGum
The promotion for Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories was innovative, but it’s certainly rivaled by the mysterious roll-out for Boards Of Canada’s first album in seven years, Tomorrow’s Harvest. The first preview of new music came via six single edition 12″s released on Record Store Day that went from a crate-digger’s goldmine to being sold for the price of one of Diddy’s children on eBay. Yesterday, more music from the Scottish ambient duo was unveiled a la Kanye West on a screen in Tokyo. Check out the footage below.

One of the things I remember most from this year
May 22, 2013 11:36am | CMJ
Laurel Halo’s confidence in her beat making ability has
only grown in the year that’s passed since the release of her
full-length debut, Quarantine. Her latest short and
sweet EP, Behind The Green Door, displays Halo’s
versatility, taking a left turn from the sounds explored on her
full-length. Suprisingly, Halo’s new record doesn’t
contain any of the fluttering vocals to which we’ve become
accustomed. Instead, we are hit by more dance-club ready tunes.
It’s as if Halo has stumbled onto a time machine and launched
herself back a few years, because the sound is oddly familiar to
her 2010 EP Hour Logic.
Watch The xx and Jessie Ware cover Stardust
May 22, 2013 11:35am | Cosequence Of Sound
Two of London’s finest, The xx and Jessie Ware, teamed up last night at Berlin’s Night + Day concert to cover not a Daft Punk song, but the Stardust one-off hit “Music Sounds Better With You”, which written by Thomas Bangalter with Alan Braxe and singer Benjamin Diamond. Watch the sultry performance of the French house classic below, which also interpolates a little of Modjo’s “Lady (Hear Me Tonight)”.
The xx-curated Night + Day comes to London’s Hatfield House on June 22nd with performances by Solange, Poliça, Kindness, Mount Kimbie, and, of course, The xx.
Watch Jessie Ware & The xx Cover Modjo & Stardust In Berlin
May 22, 2013 11:29am | StereoGum
At Berlin’s Night + Day Festival over the weekend, the xx invited Jessie Ware, their peer in warm, poised, inward-looking London club music, to the stage for something very cool. Over the track from Jamie xx’s “Sunset” edit, they fused together two circa-2000 rave classics: Modjo’s “Lady (Hear Me Tonight)” and Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You.” The xx handled the “Lady” hook, while Ware sang the everliving hell out of “Music Sounds Better With You,” and the whole thing just sounded awesome. The Berlin crowd, bless them, knew both hooks well enough to sing along. Watch a prettily filmed, pristinely recorded video of the performance below.

People Get Ready
May 22, 2013 11:23am | StereoGum
Brooklyn’s People Get Ready are about to digitally release the Zelda Maria EP, a follow-up to their 2012 self-titled debut. “Zelda Maria” was the album’s second single and the EP that it is being re-released on will sort of function as a companion piece to understanding the band’s process as musicians and performers, including demos, remixes, and instrumentals. For the title track, the group has crafted an experimental visual, heavy on movement and image-manipulation. The dancing was choreographed by Guggenheim Fellow Tere O’Conor, while PGR founder Steve Reker worked with video artist Ty Flowers to edit the images. Check it out below.

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei shares brilliant video for metallic
May 22, 2013 11:17am | Fact Magazine
The controversial artist and political activist reveals the first song from his forthcoming album.
A leading contemporary artist known for his irreverent, politically-charged installations and sculptures, Ai Weiwei was also the victim of state oppression in China, where he was forcibly detained for over three months in 2011.
Earlier this year, Ai (and musician Zuoxiao Zuzhou) announced plans for an album, with songs that run the gamut from heavy metal to punk to pop. ‘Dumbass’ falls into the metal category, with a sludgy riff and a derisive, political message (“Stand on the frontline like a dumbass, in a country that puts out like a hooker,” according to an English translation).
Directed by Ai with cinematography by Christopher Doyle, the video dramatizes and then satirizes Ai’s imprisonment. Stark recreations of prison life quickly descend into images of sex dolls, lingerie-clad models, and several bits of eye-catching roll reversal.
Watch the video below; the song and video are available for download on Ai Weiwei’s website, as are the song’s lyrics. ‘Dumbass’ appears on The Divine Comedy, due out June 22.
Listen to CHVRCHES
May 22, 2013 11:10am | Cosequence Of Sound
Even before CHVRCHES turned the Game of Thrones theme into a slice of bedroom-born synth-pop, frontwoman Lauren Mayberry was churning out left-of-center covers like it was going out of style. Case in point: this rendition of Rage Against the Machine’s classic “Killing in the Name” alongside her pre-CHVRCHES outfit Blue Sky Archives.
Mayberry and company transformed the once angsty, riotous anthem into a sweet and delicate gem of jangly folk-pop, muting the rage while upping the sheer adorableness. (It’s about an 8.0 on the “Romantic Songwriter” meter). I double dare anyone not to absolutely swoon when she sings “Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me.”
