New Pornographers getting 'Brill Brew' signature coffee blend
Jul 31, 2014 1:15pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Move over, James Murphy. The indie rock coffee competition is getting more crowded. In conjunction with their new album, Brill Bruisers, The New Pornographers have partnered with Intelligentsia Coffee on a limited edition signature blend called Brill Brew. Says bandleader AC Newman:

As absurd as it may seem for us to have a signature blend, I think it is important that there is some sort of marker, some flag planted in the earth, so that whoever walks into Intelligentsia, whoever drinks this, will know: 'The New Pornographers really really loved coffee.'
A 12oz bag of Brill Brew is $19.95 and comes with a download card for the new album. What does Brill Brew taste like? Stephen Morrissey (not that one)of Intelligentsia Coffee says:
After hearing The New Pornographers visit our coffee bars when they're in town, we invited them to choose an exclusive lot to call their own in celebration of their new album, Brill Bruisers. Carl tasted samples with us in the garden of our Chelsea shop in New York and chose a Kenya coffee grown by Harrison Kiongo Miti. Flavors of mango, nectarine and green apple shine in this cheerful and sweet coffee.
For those not near an Intelligentsia store, Brill Brew can be ordered online. It and the album will be available August 26.

Perhaps The New Pornographers will be selling it at their merch table on tour too? They play November 19 at Hammers...

Video : Wunder Wunder : Hail The Madman
Jul 31, 2014 1:13pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

L.A. via Melbourne producers Aaron Shanahan and Benjamin Plant, aka Wunder Wunder, released their debut, Everything Infinite, a couple of weeks back. The album has given us two fantastic singles already in “Coastline” and, one of our favorites this year, “Midnight Hours”. It is a quintessential summer album to have this year.

If you need more enticing, however, you can check out their new video for “Hail The Madman”. The song has an Ariel Pink retro quirkiness to it with the video depicting a sort of Cloverfield angle where you see the destruction, but not the thing responsible for it. Watch below.

Hear Casino and Skypad Wars Young Thug diss Dont Trust
Jul 31, 2014 1:08pm | Fact Magazine

It’s hard to argue that Young Thug’s one of Atlanta rap’s most visible characters right now.

Last year’s tape of helium-voiced drug chatter 1017 Thug was an instant favorite here at FACT HQ, and even though its official sequel was somewhat patchy, he’s still been going strong with a slew of killer one-offs and collaborations.

Not everyone’s on board with the Atlanta rapper however, and this latest track from (actual) cousins Casino and Skypad War rips Thug down pretty mercilessly. Calling Thug a “motherfuckin’ coward” and regretting his own involvement with the rapper, saying he “shoulda rolled with Silk first,” Archive’s Skypad War gives a ragged indication of why Thug’s not to be trusted. It’s gripping stuff, and yet another set of reasons why the recent Archive Nation (which finds him trading verses with FACT favorites Lil Silk and Chilly Chills) mixtape is not to be passed over.

You can take a listen below, and read what we had to say about Archive Nation here.

Download Fools Golds Draft Picks compilation, featuring new signees Brenmar, Salva and more
Jul 31, 2014 1:05pm | Fact Magazine

A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs aim for the upper deck.

Fool’s Gold is no stranger to high concept releases look no further than that Loosies rap compilation that came out on a USB cigarette. For their latest compilation, the label has looked to throwback trading card designs, with stellar results.

Draft Picks highlights the newest producers under the Fool’s Gold umbrella, including club pros Brenmar and Salva, synthscaper Giraffage, and relative newcomers gLAdiator, Hoodboi, TroyBoi, Shash’U and High Klassified.

“To me, all these new signings represent the sound of 2014 and beyond”, says A-Trak. “We bring them in and they’re immediately part of the family.” Catchdubs adds: “We all work hard to make Fool’s Gold THE best home for new music. Whether that means giving emerging artists a bigger platform to innovate, or encouraging guys we’ve rocked with forever to get even crazier in the studio, all our acts are superstars to us – we had to make them cards to match!”

The free compilation is available as a Bittorrent bundle, with eight songs joined by statistic-filled “trading cards” for each producer and a stick of gum (you’ll see). Grab the Bittorrent bundle now.

Canadians In Cars Getting Coffee: Watch Deadmau5 Take Rob Ford Out For A Quintuple Espresso
Jul 31, 2014 12:57pm | StereoGum

Last month, Rob Ford made his return to office as the mayor of Toronto after a stint in rehab and after losing many of his actual mayoral powers in the midst of a crack-cocaine scandal. But in the latest episode of the series Coffee Run, Ford spends some time with Deadmau5 in the superstar DJ’s Nyan Cat Ferrari (the “Purrari”). While you might jump in to the video expecting discussions about drugs, or how much Arcade Fire suck, it’s a very mellow 30 minutes. The two mostly talk about cars, traffic, and coffee, as they make their way to Tim Hortons where Deadmau5 gets an extra-large double-double (the internet tells me this is Canadian for “two sugars, two creams”) and Ford orders “five expressos [sic] in one cup.” Watch it below.


Reddits list of the Top Albums of the 2000s is a lot better than GQs list
Jul 31, 2014 12:49pm | Cosequence Of Sound

GQ Magazines recent list of the 21 best albums of the 21st century caused quite a stir, namely for its omission of acts such as Radiohead, Arcade Fire, and Wilco. But could a think tank of four million music fans do any better? The Reddit subdomain r/music has generated its own list of the best albums from the 2000s, culled from thousands of user submissions.

The results were broken down between three categories: most popular, very popular, and popular. Just four albums appear in the first category: Radiohead’s Kid A, The Strokes’ Is This It, Arcade Fire’s Funeral, and Kanye West’s The College Dropout.

The “very popular” category, meanwhile, includes two albums from The White Stripes (Elephant and White Blood Cells), Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Radiohead’s In Rainbows, LCD Sounsystem’s Sound of Silver, and Gorillaz’s Demon Days, among others.

The 12 albums comprising the “popular” category include Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP, Sufjan Stevens’ Illinoise, Modest Mouse’s The Moon & Antarctica, and Arctic Monkeys’ Whatever People Say I am, That’s What I’m No.

Among the noticeable omissions? Jay Z, Elliott Smith, The Postal Service, Ryan Adams, The Mars Volta, and The Shins &md...

Melvins team up with Butthole Surfers for new album and tour
Jul 31, 2014 12:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Over the course of their 30-plus-year history, Melvins have continually shuffled around their lineup. With frontman Buzz Osborne and drummer Dale Crover serving as the sole long-term members, the band has enlisted a bevy of musicians to accompany them both in the studio and on the road. (For example, bassist Trevor Dunn is a member of the “Lite” lineup, while the Melvins’ 1983 lineup, featuring original drummer Mike Dillard, released last years Tres Cabrones.)

For the sludge-rock veterans upcoming 23rd (!) studio album, Osborne and Crover have recruited members of another band, tapping Butthole Surfers guitarist Paul Leary and bassist J.D. Pinkus to record Hold It In. That album is due out October 14th via Ipecac Recordings.

(Read: Melvins: Three Bastards, 30 Years)

The album marks the first time since 2010s The Bride Screams Murder that Melvins have recorded as a four-piece. The album reportedly spans 12 tracks and was produced in Los Angeles and Austin this past spring.

In a press release, Osborne described Hold It In as “a refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullshit. Paul is one of the best guitar players I have ever heard and Pinkus has an outside the box type of approach to both guitar and bass that you just have to let it ride. I cant believe this actually happened. I&#8217...

Song : Lil Silva : Dont You Love (ft. BANKS)
Jul 31, 2014 12:44pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Lil Silva has his new EP, Mabel, out on August 5th on True Panther/Good Years. We have already heard the fantastic title track from it, now we get his collaboration with one of the undeniable new stars of 2014, BANKS. “Don’t You Love” builds off a funky, almost bluesy guitar rift slowly morphing into a grimy funk meets R&B slow jam. It is smooth as hell and an excellent listen. Stream it below.


Watch Deadmau5 and Rob Ford go on a coffee run
Jul 31, 2014 12:38pm | Fact Magazine

The EDM mousehead takes the embattled Toronto mayor for a ride.

Deadmau5‘s “Coffee Run” series is like Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, if Seinfeld’s web series was an unedited, mundane snoozefest.

With that in mind, here’s your chance to watch Deadmau5 take a ride with Toronto mayor Rob Ford as they shoot the shit about the city, politics, music and more. And while Deadmau5 might have been, we’re not quite surprised by Ford’s five espresso shot order caffeine’s a helluva drug.

Mike Birbiglia says "Thank God for the Jokes" on new tour, including BAM show in September (dates)
Jul 31, 2014 12:38pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Arielle Gordon

Comedian, actor, and master of deprecating storytelling Mike Birbiglia is no stranger to BAM, having recently appeared in This American Life: One Night Only at BAM (which actually ended up having two nights). He returns to the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House on September 5, this time to premiere his new show/tour, Thank God For Jokes. His new batch of jokes should be equal parts embarrassing and hilarious, as always, and it's definitely worth grabbing tickets before they're gone. Tickets for his BAM appearance go on sale August 5 for BAM members and August 7 for the general public.

The BAM show is the kickoff to what will be a busy fall of touring. All tour dates, which include shows in NJ and Purchase NY, are listed below...

Song : Mother : Centerfold
Jul 31, 2014 12:34pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

We think the Penn Badgely-led band Mother might have some legs to it. After two well-received singles “Victim” and “Easy”, they have offered up another song, “Centerfold”, from their forthcoming The Mother EP. This one is brooding like the others, but has sort of a post-punk, dark-wave feel to it. Badgely’s vocals vibrate in a deep baritone to further sell the overall mood of the song. Listen below.
