Stream Young Thug Barter 6
Apr 16, 2015 3:06pm | StereoGum
After a whole lot of anticipation, and a not-small amount of controversy over the album title, Young Thug's Barter 6 is finally out in the world. As it turns out, the mysterious project is an album and not a mixtape, and rap Twitter had a collective heart attack this morning when someone figured out … More »




Ryan Gosling in talks to star in Blade Runner sequel
Apr 16, 2015 2:52pm | Fact Magazine

The Drive star would act alongside a returning Harrison Ford.

Ryan Gosling is in negotiations to star in the sequel to 1982 dystopian sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner. Earlier this year, Harrison Ford signed on to reprise his role as Rick Deckard.

Blade Runner director Ridley Scott is executive producing the film, which will be directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy). Shooting is set to begin next summer from a script written by Michael Green and original co-writer Hampton Fancher.

While movie news is often outside our purview, the Blade Runner soundtrack is nearly as iconic as the film itself read our beginner’s guide to Vangelis. Plus, the Drive soundtrack notched a spot in our list of the 100 best albums of the decade so far. [via Deadline]

Pupppy Puking (Merry Christmas)
Apr 16, 2015 2:47pm | StereoGum
From what we've already heard off Pupppy's forthcoming Father/Daughter debut, it's clear that the record narrates a purging. Not just an emotional letting go, but a very literal physical purging; the album's called Shit In The Apple Pie, after all. There are a lot of references to bodily upsets found throughout Will Rutledge's lyrics that … More »

Ryan Gosling to star in Blade Runner sequel opposite Harrison Ford
Apr 16, 2015 2:43pm | Cosequence Of Sound

According to Variety, Ryan Gosling is in negotiations to star in the long-gestating sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner.

Harrison Ford is already on board to reprise his role as Rick Deckard, with Prisoners director Denis Vilenueve set to helm the film. Ridley Scott will produce.

No word on Gosling’s role, though the likelihood of him playing a son-type character to Deckard seems the safest bet.

Based on Philip K. Dick’s novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, the original film was set in a dystopian Los Angeles of the not-so-distant-future, where Ford’s character hunt down genetically engineered replicants living on Earth illegally.



Van Morrison released a duets album, touring, playing Forest Hills w/ Taj Mahal (dates)
Apr 16, 2015 2:17pm | Brooklyn Vegan
The duets album is often a stroke session that involves a minimum of thought -- but not for Van Morrison. Duets is as cantankerous and eccentric as any of the man's other projects. Rather than just bring in a few glossy names to decorate his greatest hits, he digs up deep cuts from mostly overlooked albums. (You won't find anything from Moondance or Astral Weeks here.) And his partners range from grizzled vets -- Steve Winwood, Mavis Staples, Taj Mahal -- to surprise guests like Natalie Cole, Mark Knopfler and Michael Bublé. Even if the artists probably figured they were signing on for "Into the Mystic" or "Tupelo Honey" karaoke, they rise to the Van challenge, helping him rescue songs that only die-hards know. [Rolling Stone]
Music legend Van Morrison's new album Duets: Re-working The Catalogue is out now, and he'll be doing a good amount of touring this year in support of it.

The tour includes a NYC show with Duets collaborator Taj Mahal happening June 19 at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium. Tickets for that show go on sale April 25 at 10 AM with a Citi presale starting Tuesday (4/21) at 10 AM.

All dates are listed, with a video of Van and Taj, below...

Magma @ Le Poisson Rouge (pics)

"Don't even try to understand the lyrics," Mr. Vander told the audience on Monday night at Le Poisson Rouge, where Magma finished the United States part of an international tour. "It comes from the heart and the beat."

True to prog-rock custom, Magma's set featured suites, not songs. It played long excerpts from three of its albums: "Köhntarkösz" from 1974, "Mëkanïk Dëstruktïw Kömmandöh (M.D.K.)" from 1973 and "Slag Tanz" from 2015; its encore was "Zombies (Ghost Dance)," a song from its 1976 album "Udu Wudu." The pieces were more consistent than their chronological spread might suggest, partly because Magma was never exactly trendy and partly because Mr. Vander's initial template for the band was so broad. That template was certainly of its time. Magma's music glances toward the jazz-rock of Weather Report and Return to Forever and toward the 20th-century classical repertory that informed Yes, Frank Zappa and Genesis. [NY Times]

French prog legends Magma recently wrapped up a North American tour at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on 4/13. As the review above points out, they only played four songs (or suites, technically), but the very intense show lasted two full hours. Pictures are in this and post and continue below...

The Rap Round-up: transatlantic trap, booty bass and soulful instrumentals
Apr 16, 2015 2:12pm | Fact Magazine

Welcome to FACT’s new-and-improved Rap Round-up.

Originally conceived to shine a light on the wealth of free music that crops up daily on SoundCloud, Datpiff, Livemixtapes and beyond, FACT’s Mixtape Round-up has seen its share of tweaks and changes over the last two years.

In 2015, we’ll be presenting a Rap Round-up every other Thursday (the week’s best free mixes will be posted every Friday). Along with mixtapes, we’ll be featuring the albums (free and otherwise) that need to be a part of the rap conversation but might not be covered otherwise.

Today’s haul features one of our rappers to watch, an under-appreciated trio, an Atlanta producer branching out on his own and jams, both West Coast-flavored and R&B-styled.

an interview with Shlohmo (on running a label, dealing with others, Flying Lotus, Burzum, Yung Gud, Tidal & more)
Apr 16, 2015 2:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Milos Markicevic

LA producer Shlohmo is currently out on a headlining tour in support of his new album Dark Red. The album was a split release with the Matador Records-owned True Panther and Shlohmo's own label WEDIDIT. That tour, with WEDIDIT labelmates Purple and Nick Melons, hit Irving Plaza in NYC on Saturday (4/11). FACT was there and wrote, "Shlohmo and his live band hit the stage bringing a longing gothic romance punctuated by chunky rhythms and melancholy guitar, exhibiting the same energy we heard on his brand new album". We caught up with Shlohmo ahead of his Friday Chicago show, to discuss life on the road, running a label, hip hop, metal, Flying Lotus, future and past collaborations and more.

---

BV: Congrats on the release of the new album, how's the tour so far? Any stories?

Shlohmo: Oh man, a few things! The first show we did was at SXSW. We played two shows there, the first was at Fader Fort and then the second one-- we did a WEDIDIT showcase (our label). This blacked out girl just jumped up on stage and fell onto a stack of DI inputs. *laughs* Her hands just went only on the DI inputs and pushed them all over and I almost had to throw her off stage. but I composed myself and said "excuse me, can you please leave?" So that was like our second show. That almost got ruined by a drunk girl. Besides that, most of the shows have been pretty good. Nothing too crazy! We've had like three o...

Tyler, The Creator talks Cherry Bomb and his borderline genius on Tavis Smiley watch
Apr 16, 2015 1:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Tyler, the Creator was a charming highlight at weekend one of Coachella, despite having some choice words for the festival’s “soft” and “boring” VIP section. The animated and outspoken Odd Future MC is currently out touring in support of his surprise new album Cherry Bomb, and his most recent stop was the set of Tavis Smiley’s PBS show.

There, he touched on the new LP, his Golf Media app, his collaboration with jazz musician Roy Ayers, his love of N.E.R.D.’s debut In Search Of…, and life in Los Angeles. Additionally, Tyler spoke about his own perception of himself, describing his artistry as “annoying” and “obnoxious”, yet “smart, very bright” and “borderline genius.”
