Morrisseys 1984 Single Reviews From Unearthed Smash Hits Are Perfect
Oct 25, 2014 5:09pm | StereoGum

Back in 1984, Morrissey did a feature with British music magazine Smash Hits where he reviewed some popular singles from that year. It was unearthed recently by Brian McCloskey, a collector of the magazines who has been uploading his archives digitally on his blog Like Punk Never Happened. It’s all pretty great. Here’s Moz on Cyndi Lauper’s “All Through The Night”: In homecountry America, Cyndia Lauper is probably filed under ’New Wave.’ This record is grossly unmusical. Squeezing the rag dry, it is lifted yet again from her LP, She’s So Incredibly Ordinary.” Woof, Moz! Tell us how you really feel. You can check out the whole thing below to see his reviews of Siouxsie, Duran Duran, XTC, and more.

Drake shares three new songs: 6 God, Heat Of The Moment, and How Bout Now listen
Oct 25, 2014 4:52pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Friday was the 28th birthday of Drake, and if you didn’t get him a new lint roller or basketball lessons, it’s actually quite alright. Instead, the actor-rapper is the one doing the gifting, offering up three new songs. Based on the accompanying artwork (above), they could be previews of his upcoming fourth album, Views From The Six, due out sometime next year.

Debuted this past August, “6 God” is an especially powerful banger, one highlighted by rattling bass and lots of swagger-laden boasts. Slowing things down a bit, “Heat of the Moment” is an especially delicate and contemplative R&B ballad. Finally, “How Bout Now” splits the difference, part bragadocious anthem with some pronounced undertones of emotionality. Drizzy’s not exactly reworking his formula, but there’s a bit more confidence being exuded, building off last fall’s Nothing Was The Same, and some more sonic nuances.

Listen to all three tracks below.

“6 God”:

“Heat Of The Moment”:

“How Bout Now”:

Drake 6 God, Heat Of The Moment, & How Bout Now
Oct 25, 2014 4:42pm | StereoGum

Drake posted three new tracks on his website earlier today. They’re called “6 God,” “Heat Of The Moment,” and “How Bout Now,” which leaked last week. There’s no information yet about whether the tracks are from his upcoming new album, Views From The 6 (due out next year), but it is accompanied by some artwork that hints that it’s connected to his new material in some way. Listen to all of them below.


Deafheaven Promise New Album In 2015
Oct 25, 2014 4:20pm | StereoGum

Deafheaven have hinted on Facebook and Twitter that the follow-up to last year’s Sunbather should be expected next year. Michael speculated what their third album could sound like when we posted “From The Kettle Onto The Coil” earlier this year, which was a one-off single produced for Adult Swim. Here’s what he had to say: “So the next stage of Deafheaven’s career will be worth watching, if for no other reason than its sheer unpredictability — the band really have no clearly blazed path to follow. They could make another album that sounds exactly like Sunbather; they could make an album that veers as far from Sunbather as that album did from the band’s 2011 debut, Roads To Judah. Or they could veer further still.” We’ll see what path the band takes in 2015.


CMJ: Blue Hawaii, Ballet School, Lydia Ainsworth @ Glasslands, Brooklyn 10/24/14
Oct 25, 2014 2:22pm | StereoGum

Ever since we named Lydia Ainsworth’s dual EP debut Right From Real Stereogum’s Album Of The Week almost a month ago, I’ve been hooked on it. Going into last night’s PopGun showcase at the not-long-for-this-world Glasslands, Ainsworth’s presence was the main hook for me. And, well, unfortunately I ran late and only caught the last couple of songs, which included the eerie “Moonstone” and her cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” (watch below) as a closer. From what I heard, her performance is as haunting and moving as you’d expect from the impressive music she’s released so far.


David Rees Aphex Swift Is The Best Aphex Twin/Taylor Swift Mashup Album Of The Year So Far
Oct 25, 2014 1:04pm | StereoGum

Mixing together Aphex Twin and Taylor Swift is a weird idea at first, but it makes so much sense the more that you think about it. They may be pretty far apart sonically, but both of them have released albums this year that challenged the boundaries of where pop music can go. Enter cartoonist David Rees, who has just put out an eight-track album that mixes the two artists to pretty good effect! Putting together “Avirl 14th” and “You Belong With Me” just somehow works. In a Tumblr post, Rees laid out his reasoning for working on the project: “I actually think Richard D. James (Aphex Twin) and Taylor Swift have a lot in common besides their songwriting talents or, at least, they each have characteristics more commonly associated with the other.” Read his full explanation and listen to the mix below.


Beady Eye Break Up
Oct 25, 2014 12:39pm | StereoGum

Liam Gallagher announced on Twitter today that Beady Eye has broken up: “Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support.” The band, which featured former Oasis members Andy Bell and Gem Archer, was formed in 2009. They released two albums: their 2011 debut, Different Gear, Still Speeding, and BE, which came out last year. In recent years, the band took to playing Oasis songs at their live shows. Here’s what the band’s members had to say on Twitter about the breakup:


Liam Gallaghers post-Oasis band Beady Eye announce breakup
Oct 25, 2014 12:08pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Beady Eye, the post-Oasis outfit of singer Liam Gallagher, has called it quits. Gallagher broke the news Saturday morning, tweeting simply, “Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support. LGx.”

Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support. LGx

— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) October 25, 2014

Gallagher formed Beady Eye in 2009 alongside former Oasis guitarists Gem Archer and Andy Bell and drummer Chris Sharrock. (The lineup also featured ex-Kasabian bassist Jay Mehler.) Beady Eye originally came together as a direct attempt to continue the lineage of Oasis, with the members deciding they would “not quit making music together” despite Gallagher’s rather messy departure from Oasis in August 2009. They released two studio albums, 2011’s Different Gear, Still Speeding and 2013’s BE.

While Gallagher offered no reasoning behind the split, Beady Eye may have just simply petered out. Last fall, Archer suffered a skull fracture when he fell down the stairs of his home, leading to the cancellation of a string of tour dates. They returned to the UK for another series of shows earlier this year, but have remained all but inactive since a brief Japanese leg in March and Coachella in April. As NME points out, the band also split with longtime manager Scott Rodger this past January.

R.I.P. Jack Bruce
Oct 25, 2014 12:04pm | StereoGum

Jack Bruce, the legendary Scottish bassist and Cream member, has passed away. Bruce’s family announced the news with a note on his website: “It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.” According to the BBC (via Bruce’s publicist), he died from liver disease at his home in Suffolk with his family. He was 71. His last album, Silver Rails was released earlier this year. Cream recently announced the release of a massive career-spanning vinyl reissue.


R.I.P. Jack Bruce, Cream co-founder and bassist, dead at 71
Oct 25, 2014 11:16am | Cosequence Of Sound

Jack Bruce, the bassist and co-founder of influential rock trio Cream, has died. He was 71.

News of Bruce’s passing was confirmed by his family via his official website, though no cause of death was noted. In the statement, Bruce’s family wrote, “It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all around legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.”

As a child, Bruce attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music, originally on a cello scholarship, but dropped out when the school wouldn’t allow him to play his beloved jazz. By 1962, he began his career as a bassist, first playing with Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated and then Manfred Mann in 1966. Bruce would also play in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, which is where he met Eric Clapton for the first time.

Hoping to embark on a more experimental path, Bruce and Clapton recruited drummer Ginger Baker, who was also a member of the Blues Incorporated, and formed Cream in late 1966. Cream operated as a tight-knit trio, writing and recording collaboratively, but Bruce was behind several of the band’s most iconic cuts, including “I Feel Free” and “Sunshine of Your Love”. Cream toured the world throughout their two-year career, helping to redefine the sounds of roc...

Cream bassist Jack Bruce dies aged 71
Oct 25, 2014 10:45am | Fact Magazine

Jack Bruce, bassist in 1960s supergroup Cream, has died aged 71.

The band he formed with guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker sold millions of albums in the two years they were together, with Bruce writing and singing most of the songs, including ‘Sunshine Of Your Love’ and ‘I Feel Free’.

Cream split in November 1968 at the height of their popularity, but they reunited for a series of concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in 2005. Before joining the band, Bruce had played in a number of other early ’60s groups including John Mayall’s Blues Breakers and Manfred Mann.

A statement on his official website said: “It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father and granddad and all-round legend.

“The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.”
