Childish Gambino Calls Out Peers In Own 'Control'-Esque Offensive...
Jul 28, 2014 1:04pm | The Daily Swarm
Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, went on a major coup against a few of his rhyme-slangin’ peers. During a freestyle at his concert in Sydney, Australia over the weekend, Glover called out everyone from Kendrick Lamar to Drake. Check out the explosive jabs in a fan-shot video below. Via MTV:

ASDIG @ Baby's All Right 7/26/2014
"This is the best night of our tour," exclaimed A Sunny Day in Glasgow guitarist Josh Meakim on stage Saturday night (7/26) at Baby's All Right. Maybe they said that to all their audiences, but it certainly felt true. The band were beaming at the sold-out-show and sounded genuinely terrific. Not an easy thing to do, given the complex, glitchy nature of the band's new album, Sea When Absent. Jen Goma joined the band back in 2010 (from an open-call) but her influence on the band seems especially strong now. In addition to her very strong vocal capabilities (which match great with ASDIG's other singer, Annie Fredrickson), Goma (who is also in People Get Ready and toured with Pains of Being Pure at Heart) has a genuine positive energy that seemed to flow out to all the other band members and the audience. (Touring the most celebrated album of their career doesn't hurt morale/energy either.) All smiles. Great show. Pictures from their set are in this post.
Earlier in the night were Ice Choir, the current main focus of Kurt Feldman (TPOBPAH, Depreciation Guild) and recent remixer of ASDIG's "Bye Bye, Big Ocean (The End)," who are an almost clinical recreation of 1984 New Pop (Scritti Politti, Prefab Sprout) right down to the syn-drums. Opening the show was guitar-and-loop-pedal man Jas...

Rome Fortune and suicideyear unite for romantic Trap Lady
Jul 28, 2014 12:44pm | Fact Magazine
One of Atlanta’s best rappers continues his collaborative streak.
Rome Fortune has spent the last few months linking up with a range of producers, from frequent collaborator Dun Deal to Four Tet. Next up: recent Software signee suicideyear.
No stranger to crafting woozy rap beats, suicideyear’s low-end rumble and gentle washes of synth are a great fit for Rome’s (sometimes pitch-shifted) vocals on the wistful ‘Trap Lady’ we just wish it was a bit longer.
Stream it below; the track is co-produced by suicideyear collaborator outthepound. For more suicideyear, check out his set on FACT’s inaugural BBOX radio show.

Stream Cold World How The Gods Chill
Jul 28, 2014 12:34pm | StereoGum
The Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania band Cold World have always played a sludgy, stomping, groove-centric form of tough-guy hardcore that’s found small, organic ways to nod to New York rap. But on their new album How The Gods Chill, the band makes that connection way more apparent, soliciting verses from rappers like Kool G Rap, Sean Price, and Meyhem Lauren, as well as a prison phone call from locked-up Harlem rap cult favorite Max B. Those experiments are fun, but at heart, How The Gods Chill is just a blistering hardcore record, the sort of thing you’ll enjoy if you ever had any fondness in your heart for Sick Of It All or Warzone. We’ve already posted the Kool G Rap collab “Hell’s Direction,” and now you can stream the whole album below.
DIIVs Zachary Cole Smith discusses his arrest with Sky Ferreira, drug addiction
Jul 28, 2014 12:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In September 2013, Sky Ferreira and DIIVs Zachary Cole Smith, were arrested in Saugerties, New York, charged with a number of offenses, including drug possession. In a new interview with Stereogum, Smith spoke at length about the arrest and the impact its had on both his and Ferreira’s careers.
We were driving through a really small town in the middle of the night, and a cop pulled out in front of us and a cop pulled out behind us, Smith said. I had a warrant out for my arrest, so they arrested me immediately. And then they searched the car, which was full of gear all of our music equipment, all of everything. And they just tore everything apart, and they just found all sorts of stuff It was bad.
Smith explained that he had a warrant for driving without a license. He also admitted that the truck he was driving were stolen and the drugs found inside the vehicle were his.
Ive just always been the kind of person that you cant say to me, That stove is too hot. Dont touch it,” he said of his drug use. “I have to just touch it and figure out how hot it is you know, hold my hand just above it or touch it with my little finger. I always have to push my limits. So all the sudden theres this drug that enters the scene thats this ultimate forbidden thing, and that makes it the most tempting thing around. Ive always struggled with various addictions throughout my life.
According to Smith, the arrest had severe...
Video : Yuko Yuko : Gold
Jul 28, 2014 12:29pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
If you like your music raw and extremely DIY, then you really should get yourself hip to Holland’s Elias Elgersma and his project Yuko Yuko. His latest EP, Babes (stream here), has been a favorite of ours this year. The video for “Gold” is an inexpensive, low visual effects clip as you would expect that borders on random kid uploading a homemade video to youtube. It is playful and slight off center that sort of reminds us of early Wavves or, perhaps, Mac DeMarco. Watch below.

Beastie Boys mural at Paul's Boutique corner is done (pics)
Jul 28, 2014 12:24pm | Brooklyn Vegan
We mentioned on Friday (7/25) that a Beastie Boys mural was being painted over the weekend at the LES corner of Ludrow and Rivington where the Paul's Boutique cover art was shot, in honor of that album's 25th anniversary. The mural's now finished, and SPIN points out that the artist behind it, Danielle Mastrion, has posted pictures to her instagram. That's the finished mural above. Check out a few more from the process, below...

Tobias Jesso Jr. True Love
Jul 28, 2014 12:23pm | StereoGum
There’s a certain sort of beauty that only manifests out of the static when some melancholy dreamer sets his fragile tenor against a wistful piano figure. Tobias Jesso Jr. has that magic in abundant supply. It’s as if he sighs his heartrending nostalgia into existence after poring over old love letters and family scrapbooks, encasing each outpouring of sentiment in wobbly lo-fi recordings that render them well-worn keepsakes from the start. “True Love” — the gentle yet increasingly intense solo piano ballad he released into the world today like a baby bird nursed from a hatchling and set free — introduces him as a soft-rock Harry Nilsson disciple of the highest order. It’s no wonder former Girls member Chet “JR” White decided to collaborate with this guy. Listen below.
VIDEOBURN: Get to know Madlib with 4 revealing behind-the-scenes videos
Jul 28, 2014 12:18pm | Chart Attack
I had originally envisioned this piece as something to give light to a small selection of Madlib deep cuts. Some fantastic songs that might get overlooked if you're still listening to one of the best hip-hop albums of 2014 (Piñata with Freddie Gibbs), or one of the best hip-hop albums ever (Madvillainy with MF DOOM). But prolific is too small a word to describe Otis Jackson Jr.'s careers. He's a producer, rapper as Quasimoto, a DJ of many globe and genre-trotting series (including the just released Rock Konducta Pt. 2), the sole creative force behind jazz "troupe" Yesterday's New Quintet, and so much more. His catalogue is more of an ocean: how do tell someone who's never been in the sea before where to start?
So instead, here's four clips from the video-shy artist, showcasing his method, library and the effects of his music on one of the most influential figures in hip-hop history. Fan or neophyte, they're each an insight into the process of this supremely important artist.
His vinyl collection weighs four tons, and he's got history with every single record
Four tons of records, shelved neatly into coded library stacks in his home. And Madlib seems to know where all of them are. Throughout the weird seat dancing of this uncomfortable one-on-one, we learn about Madlib's uncle's relationship with Dizzy Gillespie (played in his band), his love of Sun Ra (very vast), and...
Mixtape : Knxwledge : Hexual Sealings Pt. 7
Jul 28, 2014 12:11pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
Raised in central New Jersey and Philly, Los Angeles based beatsmith Glen Boothe aka Knxwledge aka Knx just released a new mixtape Hexual Sealings Pt. 7. You can probably gather from the title the overall vibe of it. If you dig what you hear, we recommend checking out the crazy prolific artist’s Bandcamp for further exploration or grab his Anthology compilation from that year that takes some of the best of his works the past few years and puts it in a more precise form. Expect a more formal release from him later this year through his label Stones Throw. Listen below.

The Horrors postpone North American tour dates
Jul 28, 2014 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Just weeks into the promotional campaign behind their latest LP, Luminous, UK indie rockers The Horrors have postponed a sizable number of their upcoming tour dates. In a post on Facebook, the band cites “circumstances beyond our control” as the reason for the cancellation of nearly 20 North American dates in late October/early November. So far, only their New York show at Stage 48 has been rescheduled (bumped earlier to October 21st).
“We can only apologise to anyone who already has tickets to the dates affected,” the band writes. “We hate cancelling shows but this situation was unavoidable. Well be back on the road next year and make sure we return to all the places we missed on this run.”
The Horrors will still play select U.S. shows, along with a full-fledged UK and European tour in the coming weeks. See their up-to-date docket below.
