Mysterious white flags appear on Brooklyn Bridge ('cyclist' John Joseph was on the scene)
Jul 22, 2014 2:28pm | Brooklyn Vegan

This story would have been funnier if it was a 'black flag', but punk and hardcore fans should nonetheless be amused by the eyewitness interviewed towards the end of this ABC report. Check out the news video below...

Song : Shura : Just Once
Jul 22, 2014 2:23pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

The relatable sentimentality of “Touch” from 23-year-old Londoner Aleksandra Denton, aka Shura, will make certain it appears on many best of lists at the end of the year, including ours. “Just Once”, her latest offering, proves that she is no one trick pony. Following a similar tone of “Touch”, this down-to-earth pop star (see Lorde) shows her insecurities with refreshing lyrical honesty. Her pillowy delivery and production just add to the idea that she is the type of girl everyone wants in their circle of friends. “Just Once” just dropped, but we already can’t wait for more from Ms. Denton. Listen below.



Apple ripped off Run The Jewels logo, says EL-P
Jul 22, 2014 2:16pm | Chart Attack

Today on Twitter, EL-P accused Apple of lifting the logo for Run The Jewels, his rap supergroup with Killer Mike, for a new ad.

His tweets are quoted below, though they've since been deleted. Here is the original Run The Jewels album cover for comparison.

OH COOL APPLE FIGURED OUT A WAY TO NOT PAY RUN THE JEWELS FOR OUR LOGO pic.twitter.com/BAGXSqW3MI

OH NO IM SURE ITS JUST A COINCIDENCE pic.twitter.com/2bKOsnw3Q2

@therealelp @xskywlkr They lifted Dilla's donuts logo too, but tweeked it so they didnt have to pay pic.twitter.com/TR4ImWlpo1

.@_KevL they re-appropriated several artist logos for an artist logo themed commercial so that they didn't have to pay the artists. so yeah. el-p (@therealelp) July 22, 2014

(The original Dilla cover looks far more appetizing.)

If you watch the ad in full, the copyrighted creations used as stickers are too many to list: they include characters from The Simpsons and Disney, cartoons of Breaking Bad and Questlove, and even unaltered logos for a number of record labels and brands, like Beats, Fools Gold, Warp, Supreme, Tokidoki and many more. It's highly unlikely that these were used unlawfully (an...


EMA playing NYC w/ Doldrums after Spoon tour (dates)
Jul 22, 2014 2:15pm | Brooklyn Vegan

EMA at Rough Trade in May (more by Amanda Hatfield)

As discussed, EMA is one of the openers on the upcoming Spoon tour, though she doesn't open their NYC date happening 9/10 at Central Park Summerstage (it's also not with Hamilton Leithauser who opens many of their dates, and does play Central Park with Broken Bells). She will, however, play her own NYC show after that tour at Bowery Ballroom on October 5. Montreal's Doldrums are on that show too, making for an excellent double bill. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/25) at noon.

Spoon, who put out two videos from their new album yesterday (7/21), also recently expanded their tour. An updated list of their dates is below. Still no opener announced for Central Park though.

EMA released her great sophomore album, The Future's Void, earlier this year. Doldrums' last was 2013's Lesser Evil. Watch videos from those, with the list of dates, below...

Franz Ferdinand drop Boards of Canada and Oneohtrix Point Never on LateNightTales mix
Jul 22, 2014 2:09pm | Fact Magazine

Franz Ferdinand have been tapped to provide the next in the LateNightTales series of compilations, and it looks as if their offering will be a good ‘un.

The post punkers have long declared a love for all things noodly and electronic (the did choose to sign to Warp Records after all), but they confirm it here dropping Oneohtrix Point Never’s ‘Zebra’ and Boards of Canada’s ‘Reach for the Dead’. Elsewhere they touch on krautrock with Can’s ‘Connection’, funk with James Brown’s ‘King Heroin’ and dub with Lee “Scratch” Perry’s ‘Disco Devil’, and there are plenty more surprises.

The mix is bookended by two tracks from frontman Alex Kapranos and the crew – it kicks off with a Franz Ferdinand cover of Jonathan Halper’s ‘Leaving My Old Life Behind’ and ends with a spoken word track from Kapranos himself.

LateNightTales: Franz Ferdinand will be released on September 15, on CD, digital and double 180g vinyl. [via Resident Advisor]

Tracklist:

01 Franz Ferdinand – Leaving My Old Life Behind (Exclusive Cover Version)
02 R. Stevie Moore – I’m Only Sleeping
03 The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Eighteen Is Over The Hill
04 Sandy Nelson – Let There Be Drums
05 Life Without Buildings – New Town

SBTRKT New Dorp, New York (Feat. Ezra Koenig)
Jul 22, 2014 2:05pm | StereoGum

Three years ago, the masked, mysterious London dance producer SBTRKT released his self-titled debut album, which showed how sparse, architectural club music could absolutely work as pop if you did it right. The album helped introduce singers like Jessie Ware and Sampha, and when Drake jumped on a remix a few months later, that just sounded right. SBTRKT went away for a little while after that, returning a few months ago with an instrumental EP called Transitions and a new Sampha collab called “Temporary View.” And now he’s announced the release of Wonder When We Land, his next proper album. The first single is called “New Dorp, New York”; it’s a bubbly, inviting banger with a slippery, sidelong vocal from Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, who sounds right at home on this. The song is an absolute monster, and it debuted on BBC radio earlier today. Listen to it below.

Kendrick Lamar Has 40 Songs Ready for Next Album; Dr. Dre's In There, Too...
Jul 22, 2014 1:48pm | The Daily Swarm



With the immense out-of-nowhere success of Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city, the world is wondering how rap’s new king would follow up the effort. Fear not, for Kendrick doesn’t slack off. In a new interview with Complex, the TDE artist revealed that he has around 30 to 40 songs recorded for his new album. And among them, there’ll be a few joints featuring production from Dr. Dre:

Expectations are high. After good kid, good simply wont be good enough. Unlike GKMC, which Kendrick planned years in advance, theres no cover art in mind for the follow-up. As for a title, Kendrick says hes flirting with ideas. Hes been working primarily with TDEs in-house producers, Tae Beast and Sounwave of Digi+Phonics, but has also gotten in the studio with Dr. Dre. Hes still just getting his ideas down, but so far Kendricks recorded 30 to 40 new songs for the album (he recorded 60 to 70 songs for GKMC). He says hell be ready for a fourth quarter release.

Hooray – we’re so ready!
