Stream Nicolas Jaars fantastic John Lennon tribute mix
Dec 9, 2013 2:40am | Fact Magazine
Nicolas Jaar turns the John Lennon catalogue inside out on a new mix.
Yesterday marked the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon’s murder at the hands of Mark Chapman. Jaar has noted the occasion with a new mix in Lennon’s honour, titled ‘Our World’.
Jaar’s mix certainly isn’t a conventional tribute session – instead, he uses processed fragments of classic Lennon material (‘Imagine’ included), news reports, and assorted Jaar productions to build a trippy, oneiric hour. Click below to listen/download (and you really should, it’s ace).
Jaar has recently been dedicating himself to his Darkside
project, who dropped the prog-minded
Psychic LP in October. He’s
also recently become commander-in-chief of a new label, Other
Earlier this year, Lennon’s childhood home sold at auction for £480,000. The three-bedroom terrace house on Newcastle Road was expected to go for between £150,000 and £250,000, but the final price doubled expectations, with an anonymous American filing the winning bid.

Bob Dylan's Strat sells for $965k, "Born to Run" Lyric Sheet a steal at $197k
Dec 8, 2013 10:41pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Wyatt Marshall
Bob Dylan's sunburst Fender Stratocaster that he played at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 just sold at auction for a cool $965,000, the peak of a string of high profile music-related auctions held last week. The guitar was the axe Dylan used the first time he went electric in a live setting, an occasion that may or may not have elicited boos from the crowd in attendance (a 24-year old Dylan said they "certainly booed"). It was also the first time Dylan performed with a backing band. The auction marked the highest price ever paid for a guitar, electric or otherwise. Sorry, Eric Clapton, Blackie only sold for $959,500.
Bruce Springsteen didn't fare too badly at auction either. His handwritten lyrics for "Born to Run", which apparently are quite different from the lyrics to the finished song, sold for $197,000 just the day before the Dylan Stratocaster sale. Also for sale that day were some Mick Jagger love letters and a letter from John Lennon. Last time Mick's love scribbles went up for auction, they sold for over $300,000. Those letters were addressed to Marsha Hunt, Jagger's former muse/lover who is said to be the inspiration for "Brown Sugar".
As the New York Daily News put it, "Tramps like us, baby we were born to bid." SMDH.
Bruce Springsteen recently announced yet another new album.

Listen to Young the Giants new single Crystallized, watch the video
Dec 8, 2013 10:18pm | Cosequence Of Sound
More than three years after releasing their smash self-titled debut, Young the Giant return January 21st with their sophomore effort, Mind Over Matter. Following our first taste of the new record, “It’s About Time”, the indie rockers today revealed the video for their new single “Crystallized”.
Lead singer Sameer Gadhia’s vocals have always reached beyond the atmosphere, and it’s no different here as he belts, “When the beat of my drum meets the beat of your heart / You know I couldn’t love any other.” Fittingly, the clip matches his celestial vocals with some astral imagery. As the band lays down some effervescent SoCal vibes, meteors careen through space, spinning and crashing into each other in a cosmic dance. And like the best choreography, the space rocks pull their fanciest moves just as the band hits their biggest moments. Lock in the helmet on that spacesuit, and launch the clip below.
You can also listen to the track sans visuals below.
Mind Over Matter is out January 21st via Fueled By Ramen. Pre-orders are currently on-going via iTunes.

Morrissey NYC book signing NOT happening; 'Your Arsenal' getting reissue in February
Dec 8, 2013 6:41pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Sorry Morrissey fans. The NYC book signing that was announced for this Thursday (12/12) at Barnes & Noble Union Square is not happening. Don't blame Moz, though. Says B&N:
There was a miscommunication solely on the part of the store and Morrissey was not scheduled to make an appearance here on 12/12/13 as we had announced in error. We hope to see him in the future, but there is NO scheduled signing for Morrissey at this time. We greatly apologize to his fans and our customers for any inconvenience this has caused.Well that's a bummer.
In other Morrissey news, February 24 sees a reissue of his 1992
album Your Arsenal on heavyweight gatefold vinyl or a CD

Listen to Michael Jacksons isolated vocals for Man in the Mirror
Dec 8, 2013 11:58am | Cosequence Of Sound
Michael Jackson has been pretty busy since his death in June 2009, thanks to a litany of posthumous projects. Whether it’s Timbaland’s mysterious project with L.A. Reid, the long-buried duet with Freddie Mercury, or the atrocious Justin Bieber collabo “Slave 2 The Rhythm”, money-hungry insiders continue to trample on his grave. To be fair, it’s not that difficult to see their reasoning: Jackson’s death has left a gaping hole in the industry, and it’s only natural they try to fill it with whatever echoes of the King they can.
Fortunately for them, there’s still plenty of his legacy to uncover online. Case in point, this isolated vocal track of “Man in the Mirror”, a song we ranked as the fourth best of all-time. Without the percussive reverb or the layers of harmonies, the nuances of Jackson’s performance become utterly clear. He sounds gritty, intense, and almost brooding. What truly stands out, though, is his penchant for grunts and yelp, which now display a raw emotionality that further enhances the song’s tale of social outrage and existential uncertainty. Listen below.

Spotify hints at possible move into free mobile streaming, starting with the U.S
Dec 8, 2013 9:43am | Fact Magazine
Streaming giant may make free streaming available on mobiles in the new year.
Following its recent moves to better clarify how it pays musicians, details have emerged of a possible move by Spotify to add free music to its mobile versions. The move would put the Swedish company directly up against Apple’s iTunes Radio.
A press event scheduled for December 11 is expected to have more details. Currently mobile users can only use Spotify if they are paying subscribers, while desktop users can make use of the ad-supported free version. Early details gleaned from the Wall Street Journal indicate that Spotify has reached licensing deals with “three global music companies to use their recordings on the new service”, leaving some to wonder what this means for independent labels. Additional details include limitations to the amount of songs you can play on demand. Most likely the idea here is to push people to the paying service for more freedom, much like Rdio and Deezer already do.
iTunes Radio is currently only available in the US, as will Spotify’s free mobile version on launch, but is expected to go global in 2014. [via The Guardian]
