Spoon Inside Out (Demo)
Apr 17, 2015 1:11pm | StereoGum
Spoon are a great studio band, one that knows how to hold back. Their records often feel painstakingly assembled, stripped of everything the songs might not need. So it's fascinating to hear them at the barest possible level. Last August, Britt Daniel and Jim Eno appeared on the podcast Song Exploder to talk about … More »

Watch A New Trailer For Dope, A$AP Rockys Feature Film Debut
Apr 17, 2015 1:10pm | StereoGum
We saw a brief trailer for Dope, A$AP Rocky's feature film debut, when it premiered at Sundance. Now a much longer, more detailed trailer has emerged, and it makes the movie look pretty awesome. The story revolves around Malcolm (Shameik Moore), a straight-A student from Inglewood, California who plays in a punk band and … More »

Justin Vernon covers Spoons Inside Out watch
Apr 17, 2015 12:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Over the last couple months, Justin Vernon has covered the likes of Bruce Springsteen and The White Stripes. This week, he turns his attention to Spoon, who, like Bon Iver, is set to perform at the inaugural Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival this summer.

From the dark depths of a forest, Vernon and his lonely piano tackle Spoon’s “Inside Out”, a highlight off one of 2014’s best albums They Want My Soul. It’s a sparse, haunting rendition done in true Bon Iver fashion, and a fine way to build up anticipation for the upcoming festival. Watch a video of the cover below.

Spoon has also shared its own piano demo of the track, which can be streamed here.

Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival, which was curated by both Vernon and The National’s Bryce Dessner, takes place on July 17-18 in Vernon’s hometown of Eaux Claires, Wisconsin. Other acts scheduled to appear include The National, Sufjan Stevens, The Tallest Man on Earth, Poliça, Sturgill Simpson, and Sylvan Esso, among others.

UK rockers Basement announced a US summer tour earlier this month, and today they revealed the openers for the East Coast leg (not counting the NJ show, which is co-headlining with Title Fight). They'll be joined by their punky Run for Cover labelmates Adventures, and two Exploding In Sound bands, LVL UP and Palehound. Here's what Basement said about the openers:

We are really excited to announce that ADVENTURES, LVL UP and PALEHOUND will be the support bands for the second leg of our USA tour this summer. The bands we get to support us are bands that we have chosen ourselves because we either love them as people, as a band or both. If you haven't heard of one of the bands don't just dismiss them because you haven't heard their music before, go check them out and listen to them. Excited to tour this summer with these awesome bands.
That leg of dates includes the NYC show happening August 17 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for that show are still available. All dates are listed below.

Adventures were in NYC last week, and related band Code Orange returns to open for Poison the Well in May, and they'll be in the area this July on the Rockstar Mayhem Fest tour with Slayer, King Diamond and more.

LVL UP and Palehound also have a NYC show together this Saturday (4/18) at Silent...

Paper Foxes (WCSF), Goodbye Party (WRGW) And More
Apr 17, 2015 12:29pm | CMJ

The Goodbye Party (via Facebook)

Each week the CMJ staff sifts through thousands of radio playlists that contribute to the weekly CMJ charts. In the Chart Discovery column, we highlight exciting artists, albums and songs brought to our attention by the charts of our reporting panel of college and non-commercial radio stations. This round’s picks come via WCSF in Joliet, IL, and WRGW in Washington D.C.

Paper Foxes on WCSF

How many bands with fox in their name can you think of? Id bet quite a few. While the popularity of foxes has slowed down a bit recently, it is far from obsolete, and Paper Foxes are here to throw their name on the list. Come to think of it, paper is another often used one. But this Phoenix-based group wants to stand out from the crowd. Their lo-fi garage-pop is loaded with fuzzy washed-out riffs and reverberating vocals.

Love & Schizophrenia by Paper Foxes

Goodbye Party on WRGW

The Goodbye Party is the gloomy, lo-fi, power-pop project of Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist Michael Cantor. He on tour opening for college radio favorite Waxahatchee, but we discovered the Goodbye Party on the playlist at WRGW.

Silver Blues by The Goodbye Party

From afrobeat to experimental fuzz rock to dark R&B, check out some of the other exciting artists we discovered on the charts this week: Waterstrider on KXRN, Strange Relations on Radio K, Abra...

Blur to celebrate Record Store Day with The Magic Whip ice cream truck
Apr 17, 2015 12:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Have you looked at the cover to Blurs forthcoming album The Magic Whip and thought, “Mmm, I could go for a sundae right about now”? Well, fans in the Los Angeles area are in luck. In celebration of Record Store Day, the band will have its very own Magic Whip ice cream truck perched outside select record shops in the LA area.

“Any fans who show their store receipt will get FREE ice cream!” notes a poster for the dessert-mobile. “And, if you use the secret code “THE MAGIC WHIP”, you will receive a collectable “Lonesome Street” flexi disc!” Whether or not you’ve got a sweet tooth, it’s admittedly a nice cherry on top of the comeback LP, Damon Albarn & co.’s first in 12 years.

The Magic Whip hits shelves on April 27th/28th. If a tasty cone isn’t incentive enough, consider the fact that the band may just schedule a North American tour if the album sells well.

Below, check out the ice cream truck poster for more details and revisit “Lonesome Street”.

After A Decade, Where Is Mike Jones?
Apr 17, 2015 12:17pm | StereoGum
In his industrious resolve to deliver Houston hip-hop to the widest possible market in the mid-2000s, rapper Mike Jones assumed the role of carnival barker. The carnival, though, was Mike Jones himself. He yapped his name on every track he could, usually prefaced by a "Who?", and doled out T-shirts emblazoned with his cell phone … More »

Keita Sano preps Holding New Cards for 1080p, flips Yeah! Woo! sample on its head with Onion Slice
Apr 17, 2015 12:13pm | Fact Magazine

The Japanese producer flips the classic ‘Yeah! Woo!” sample into a dazzlingly trippy techno burner.

Next month the always charismatic label 1080p will put out Holding The Cards, a new release from Keita Sano. Though he began his career in jazz music, Sano’s massive album finds him putting his own infectious, psychedelic take on techno and house for over 70 minutes. One of the best examples of that is ‘Onion Slice’, which finds Sano taking the iconic “Yeah! Woo!” sample best remembered from Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock’s ‘It Takes Two‘ and breaks it apart in constantly surprising ways and entertaining ways.

Listen to it below and grab Holding The Cards on cassette on May 5 through 1080p.

Green Day reunites with original drummer and performs as Sweet Children watch
Apr 17, 2015 12:05pm | Cosequence Of Sound

This weekend, Green Day will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In anticipation, the band played an intimate gig for fans at Cleveland’s House of Blues on Thursday night, marking their first US gig in two years.

The setlist spanned a whopping 35 songs and included several special moments. The evening opened with Billie Joy Armstrong and Mike Dirnt reuniting with original drummer John Kiffmeyer and performing several rarities under their original moniker, Sweet Children. Of note were the first live performances of “Sweet Children”, “I Was There”, “Dry Ice”, and “Green Day” in two decades.

During their proper Green Day set, the band performed “Private Ale” for the first time since 1992, and invited Tim Armstrong on-stage to cover Operation Ivy’s “Knowledge” and “Minority” as well as Rancid’s “Radio”. (Green Day has long cited Operation Ivy as one of their biggest influences.)

Watch a few fan-shot videos below followed by the complete setlist.
