Trapped In The Closet chapters to IFC" width="685" height="257" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-193930" />
Kells returns with more episodes of his rap opera.
Just over a year ago, R. Kelly claimed to have written another 85 chapters of his Trapped In The Closet melodrama (Trapped in the Closet is forever. Ive got like a hundred chapters to come.). In 2014, some of those chapters will see the light of day.
IFC has announced that new chapters will air exclusively on the channel sometime next year, promising the usual “intense drama, crazy situations and tumultuous relationships” that the rap opera has offered in heaps. In addition, all previous chapters will air on IFC beginning on Saturday, and are available at any time on their website.
While we wait for more Trapped In The Closet, throw on Black Panties and check out R. Kelly’s guide to good sex.

HAIM Forever (Giorgio Moroder Remix)
Dec 4, 2013 10:42am | StereoGum
It’s been a fruitful season for mega-talented European dance music producers remixing HAIM’s Days Are Gone opener and breakthrough hit “Forever” — shouts to Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas and TCTS — and Euro dance greats don’t come greater than Giorgio Moroder. Now Daft Punk’s hero has unveiled his own take on the sister act’s signature track (OK, some of us ride for “The Wire“). Says Giorgio himself:
The 20 best Bandcamp releases of 2013
Dec 4, 2013 10:39am | Fact Magazine
So long 2013, and thanks for all the music.
Yup, its the end-of-year-list season – cue insanity comparable to the Black Friday scrum or the European launch of the PS4. At least with the internet you dont run the risk of being crushed to death while attempting to purchase something.
Over the next pages, Ive chosen 20 of my favourite Bandcamp releases and/or pages. Most of these are from 2013, though some are a little older; some I didnt get a chance to feature before despite being worthy; and there are a few that double up as this months selection, having just been released. The columns only been running for about eight months, and the idea was always to showcase the myriad sonic wonders hidden inside Bandcamps growing ecosystem rather than simply focus on the latest releases (something Bandcamp now does rather well with its own weekly radio show). There is no specific order, and Ive added a few lines of explanation for my choices.
Bandcamp has definitely come into its own this year thanks to various updates to its system, one of the many reasons we decided to start a monthly column focusing on it. Itll certainly be interesting to see how it continues to fare in the coming years. As artists and the industry continue to grapple with what the future of music production and consumption might look like, I certainly stand by my earlier claims that Bandcamp is providing one of the most essential and intelligent solutions to the conundrum were all...
Regis and Lizz Winstead appearing at tonight's 'Running Late with Scott Rogowsky' at Symphony Space
Dec 4, 2013 10:33am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Jeffrey Bergstrom
Klaus-favorite and all around awesome dude Scott Rogowsky has a recurring live late-night-talk-show-formatted show called Running Late With Scott Rogowsky. Running Late is one of NYC's only live talk shows and combines the traditional, familiar late-night format; sidekick (his dad Marty), monologue, house band, sketches, celebrity interviews etc. It's got a real old school Johnny Carson-esque vibe to it, and each installment features some pretty top-shelf, super-famous talent. Scott currently has two Running Lates on his radar. The first happens TONIGHT (12/4) at Symphony Space and features television icon Regis Philbin, along with Lizz Winstead (The Daily Show co-creator and former head writer), comedian Michael Kosta (The Tonight Show, Conan) and Scott Wiener (Scott's Pizza Tours). The show takes place at 8:30 PM and there are a handful of tickets left.
On December 18, Running Late will head into Brooklyn to the more intimate confines of Littlefield where he will be joined by Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), actor Josh Pais, as well as Simon Rich and Farley Katz (authors of The Married Kama Sutra:...

Gucci Mane faces 20 years in prison for felony gun possession
Dec 4, 2013 10:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
No ice cream for Gucci Mane, but jail time’s in order: the rapper (born Radric Davis) is facing 20 years in a federal prison after being indicted on felony gun charges. According to Rolling Stone, federal prosecutors in Atlanta said Davis will face two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Last September, Davis was twice found in possession of a loaded weapon, which he allegedly used to threaten people. He previously served stints in prison for aggravated assault and assault with a deadly weapon, and as a convicted felon, he is not legally allowed to possess a weapon. He’s currently being detained in DeKalb County Jail.
In light of the news, Davis has reportedly been dropped by Atlantic Records.

Pillar Point Eyeballs (Stereogum Premiere)
Dec 4, 2013 10:21am | StereoGum
If you know Scott Reitherman, it’s probably because you know his indie pop band Throw Me The Statue (a Band To Watch back in 2007), but that is likely to change soon with his new project, Pillar Point. “Eyeballs,” an ode to the loneliness of social networking and the first single off PP’s upcoming debut, hits every pleasure center you want when it comes to synth pop. Reitherman’s gloomy, heart-on-sleeve vocals skip along with the bright hyper-melodic synths that sound like something from a Sega Genesis rejuvenated just in time to ring in 2014. Meanwhile that keyboard sweep hook is almost frustratingly addictive. Listen and check out a trailer for the album below.
Big Ears Festival 2014 lineup (Steve Reich, Jonny Greenwood, John Cale, Television, Julia Holter, Oneohtrix & more)
Dec 4, 2013 10:12am | Brooklyn Vegan
Big Ears Festival, a three-day event that joins modern classical music and adventurous rock acts in venues around Knoxville, TN, will host its first festival since 2010 on March 28-30. Composer Steve Reich acts as the artist-in-resident, with Ensemble Signal, Jonny Greenwood and So Percussion performing his music. Also on the lineup are John Cale, Television, Nazoranai (Keiji Haino, Stephen O'Malley, and Oren Ambarchi) and Marc Ribot (playing solo as well as with Ceramic Dog and Los Cubanos Postizos), Laraaji, Tim Hecker, Julia Holter, Oneohtrix Point Never, Colin Stetson, Vatican Shadow, Nils Frahm, Mark McGuire, Bill Orcutt, Dean & Britta, Glenn Kotche, Susanna, Dawn of Midi and Son Lux.
Passes for the fest go on sale Friday, December 6 at noon and are $150.
The festival's return is a good thing as its future was in question after a three year hiatus (its organizers stay busy running Bonnaroo). Big Ears 2010 was a huge undertaking--and from a listeners stand-point, a hugely successful one--with a lineup that featured the National, Dirty Projectors, Vampire Weekend, the Calder Quartet, Joanna Newsom, St. Vincent, Andrew WK, The Ex, Gang Gang Dance, Clogs, the xx, Ben Frost and Tim Hecker and artist-in-residence Terry Riley. You can see BrooklynVegan's coverage of that fest here.

gorilla vs. bears albums of 2013
Dec 4, 2013 10:11am | Gorilla Vs Bear
Here is the list of our favorite releases of 2013: not quite as deep as last year’s list, which probably has more to do with our increasingly/intently focused listening habits (I feel like I listened to nothing but Anxiety for a month straight early this year, thus its spot at the top) than the quality of this year’s offerings. Check our selections + a very emotional accompanying BEST OF 2013 mix (and Spotify playlist) below, and as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts on anything we might have overlooked. Stay tuned for the GvsB songs of 2013 list — easily my favorite post every year — coming soon…

High On Fire Slave The Hive Video
Dec 4, 2013 10:08am | StereoGum
We haven’t gotten any word on a new album from the world-wrecking Bay Area metal power trio High On Fire, but they do have a blistering new single called “Slave The Hive,” and now they have a video for that single. The clip centers around the practice of medicine in a nighmarish Orwellian rabbit-world, and it is metal as all fuck. Watch it below.

NME names its Top 50 LPs & tracks of 2013 (guess who's #1?)
Dec 4, 2013 10:00am | Brooklyn Vegan
UK music weekly NME has just published its end-of-year issue, with their Top 50 LPs and Tracks of 2013. As for the albums list, we'll let you read on to find out what their #1 pick is, but it might just be the one NME called "absolutely and unarguably the most incredible album of [said band's] career" and "the greatest record of the last decade." It's not Palma Violets, who were last year's Track of the Year, as their debut LP came in at #32 on the list.
As for tracks, their single of the year is a pretty obvious (certainly ubiquitous) choice. Check out the full lists of NME's Top 50 LPs and Tracks below...
