Ultimate Painting - Ultimate Painting
Oct 23, 2014 1:28am | Drowned In Sound

Veronica Falls and Mazes. Mazes and Veronica Falls. For those of us whose knowledge of these two acts extended little further than listening to and enjoying their music, this collaborative record between Jack Cooper and James Hoare, under the moniker Ultimate Painting, will be a surprise a pleasant one at that. The melding of their two distinctive styles is equally pleasant; so is the entirely analogue production, the good ol fashioned DIY split cassette spirit and the album art. Unexpected or not, this is a welcome collaboration.

Recalling post-John Cale Velvets, mid-period Beatles and many other bands of the Sixties era from that period before things turned more in favour of heavy psych and hard rock, Ultimate Painting is a record that not only bears witness to a duo that understand each other extremely well, but one that brings about further realisation in the listener as to how memorable each of the members are within their own acts.

You can hear Jack Coopers fizzy guitar lines and playful vocals and instantly recognise them as the prime mover of Mazes krautrock-indebted psychedelics; likewise James Hoares hypnotised, low voice and introspective lyrics work as well here as they do as in the infectious goth-C86 of Veronica Falls. Together the band work wonders: Ultimate Painting is a seamless collaborative effort that, while by no means groundbreaking, is a notable success.

iLoveMakonnen Assaulted Onstage At CMJ
Oct 22, 2014 8:30pm | StereoGum

Last night during a CMJ performance at SOBs, iLoveMakonnen was assaulted while performing “Club Going Up On A Tuesday.” Judging from a video of the incident that Makonnen tweeted out earlier today, a man in the front row reached out to the rapper and then grabbed his hand and dragged him down, punching him multiple times. The fight was quickly broken up by someone that was on stage who jumped down after the attacker and cleared the floor.

Tobias Jesso Jr. Preps Debut Goon With Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Carney, Chet JR White
Oct 22, 2014 8:07pm | StereoGum

Singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. has captivated us since “True Love” earlier this year and it seems like we’re not alone. In a new interview with Pitchfork, he details some big-name collaborators that he’s working with for his debut album, Goon, which is due out next year. In addition to former Girls bassist Chet “JR” White (who produced “True Love”), the album will feature production from Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Carney, and the New Pornographers’ John Collins. That’s a pretty interesting team, and it looks like Jesso will be putting out one of the most anticipated debuts of next year. Read the full interview here.





Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer leaks, causes worldwide nerdgasm watch
Oct 22, 2014 7:48pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Less than 24 hours after Marvel announced that they’d be premiering the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron following next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the whole thing has leaked online. Let the nerdgasms commence.

Our first taste of Joss Whedon’s superhero team sequel presents a much darker tone than its predecessor. Over a creepy rendition of “I’ve Got No String” from Pinocchio, we see images of Captain America’s shield shattered, Thor’s hammer dropping, and a very defeated looking Tony Stark. We also get a first look at newcomers Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch in action (outsider of the Winter Solider stinger, that is), as well as a spine-chilling introduction to James Spader’s villainous Ultron. Oh, and there’s a freakin’ Hulk-Buster armor. Watch below (via MovieWeb).

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits US theaters May 1st. (It’s worth noting that the trailer clearly says “This April,” meaning there’s a good chance this is an international version and the trailer coming with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could be different). Whedon returns to direct the talents of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smuld...


Watch 2 Chainz try out the most expensive toothbrush in the world
Oct 22, 2014 6:49pm | Fact Magazine


“5000 motherf*ckin’ dollars for a toothbrush?”

2 Chainz has tested out the world’s most expensive toothbrush in the latest instalment of GQ’s ‘Most Expensivest Shit’ series. The rapper tested the German-made Reinast luxury toothbrush which retails for a cool 3200. The toothbrush is made from solid titanium and features a patented anti-bacterial coating.

The video also contains some useful advice on the correct way to floss. 2 Chainz’ dental advisor demonstrates that you’re supposed to do it before you brush and that flossing is much more effective when you wrap the floss around your middle fingers as opposed to your index fingers, just in case you were wondering.


Automotive Songwriter/Author/Inventor Neil Young Announces Art Show For His Car Watercolors
Oct 22, 2014 6:22pm | StereoGum

Looks like Neil Young has a thing about (for?) cars. Let’s recap: His 2009 album, Fork In The Road, was inspired by his Lincoln Continental, which he had retrofitted into a more fuel-efficient version that he called the LincVolt, and which ended up being totally flammable. He just published a book called Special Deluxe: A Memoir Of Life And Cars that’s all about the various cars he’s owned throughout his 68 years on Earth. And the cover art for his latest album, Storytone features … you guessed it: a car! It turns out that artwork is part of a larger collection of watercolors that Young has painted over the years. This collection will be on display at California’s Robert Berman Gallery for an exhibition that will take place at the end of November. I miss the good old days when he was just talking about cotton or trying to bring down the iPod. You can find out more info about the car exhibition at the gallery’s website — Young will appear at the opening reception on 11/3.

Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and 9th Wonder join forces as Indie 500
Oct 22, 2014 6:06pm | Fact Magazine

The hip hop trio combine to carry on the spirit of Native Tongues.

Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and 9th Wonder have come together to form a new collective called Indie 500. The collective will pull together the rosters of Kweli’s Jamla Records, Monch’s W.A.R. Media and 9th Wonder’s Javotti Media to form a much greater force independent from the major label system.

We looked at each other and we were like, we should do business together and music together.” said Pharoahe Monch.  ”Not just on the rap side, but on the touring side, the business side and sharing of information. Its empowering, its beautiful, and its important for that to be known. To inspire younger generations to not only rap, but to start companies and corporations.

9th Wonder gave fans an insight into what they can expect from the trio, stating Indie 500 is a kind of continuation of the Native Tongues sound all the way to the Rawkus sound. Badu, Jill Scott, Slum Village anywhere that has that texture of sound that feels good with good lyrics Indie 500 is a continuation of that and a new generation. Were trying to continue on the tradition of classic what they like to call traditional hip-hop. Grass roots, deep-rooted hip-hop music.

Watch all three rappers discuss their plans for Indie 500 in the video below. [via OkayPlayer]
