U2 Releasing Sirens In September According To UMG Tweet, Album Rumored For November
Jul 24, 2014 8:47am | StereoGum

First U2 were supposed to release a new album this year, then they weren’t, then nobody really knew what to think but there was some nice new music playing on the beach. Now an Irish Examiner feature asserts that the band’s as-yet-untitled thirteenth LP will arrive in November now that Bono has overcome a bout of writer’s block. Meanwhile, a tweet in Spanish from the Colombian branch of Universal Music Group suggests U2 will release something called “Sirens” in September. My Spanish is a little rusty, but the tweet seems to be saying Sirens is an album title, not a song title. Whatever it is, let’s hope it continues the return to form that was “Invisible.”


Iceage The Lords Favorite Video
Jul 24, 2014 8:44am | StereoGum

Danish punk Iceage released their last album You’re Nothing just last year, and today, they’ve already returned with a new song, a slurry and falling-apart rockabilly number called “The Lord’s Favorite.” The track comes with a new video. More than any other Iceage video, this one gets a lot of mileage out of the fact that the band’s members are extremely handsome young men, and it’s full of undertones of sticky and vaguely transgressive sexuality. There’s no new-album news yet, but the band promises “more new music coming soon,” and they’ve also announced a North American tour. Below, check out the video, which Cali Thornhill DeWitt directed, and check out the band’s tour dates.

Redinho announces long-awaited debut album on Numbers; stream Playing With Fire
Jul 24, 2014 8:30am | Fact Magazine

It’s finally here, the glossy debut from Numbers‘ secret weapon Redinho.

The talkbox crooner (aka Londoner Tom Calvert) has been astonishing with odd drops and collaborations (his collaboration on Rustie’s upcoming new album Green Language is a doozy), but now it’s time for him to show his grand scheme on this self-titled LP. The record features a host of tracks we’ve heard before – anthems Stay Together, Stinger and Searching are all present and correct, and joined by a host of killer new material.

The album’s first proper single is ‘Playing With Fire’ and typifies its slithering nu-R&B coming across like the UK’s answer to soul sensation The-Dream. You can take a listen below, and take a peep at the record’s extensive tracklist (which also includes a few live faves).

Redinho will be released on September 23, via Numbers.


01 Stinger
02 Jacuzzi
03 Playing With Fire
04 Dive
05 Searching
06 Shem
07 Bubbles
08 Sharp Shooter
09 Making Up The Rules
10 With Or Without You
11 Get You Off My Mind

Watch: Lily Allens video for As Long As I Got You is a fitting tribute to Glastonbury
Jul 24, 2014 8:28am | Cosequence Of Sound

Lily Allen has shared the video for arguably Sheezus most feel-good track, “As Long As I Got You”. As a reflection of its saccharine vibes, the accompanying visuals find Allen documenting the sentimental role that Glastonbury Festival has played in her life. “Ive been to Glastonbury pretty much every year since Ive been born,” Allen said, offering up a few photos from festivals past, including some adorable baby pics, before launching into walking tour of this years festivities. By now, Allens prowess for satire is well documented, but its sort of nice to see her embrace a sense of poppy romanticism without all that underlying snark.

In a press release, Allen shared further insight into Glastonburys significance: “Glastonbury has always been a huge part of my life, and I wanted to make this video there to celebrate the spirit of the festival and also to show how my life has changed since the last time I played there. From being there as a child with my Dad, to my wilder days in the 2000s, to this year when I was back on the Pyramid stage, and taking my husband and own daughters along!”

Watch it below:

In continued support of Sheezus, Allen will be on tour this fall, including a U.S. stint supporting Miley Cyrus. Consult her full schedule here.

Iceage working on third LP, release video for new single, announce tour w/ Helm (dates)
Jul 24, 2014 8:27am | Brooklyn Vegan

Iceage in Portland in 2013 (more by Autumn Andel)

Denmark's Iceage already have two albums of dark punk/post-punk out, and it now seems they're pulling a The Men by abandoning those dark punk roots for something closer to country punk on their new single "The Lord's Favorite." The song's video (dir. Cali DeWitt) just came out and can be watched below. No exact details on a third album yet but they're working on one.

The band also announced a North American tour with London experimentalist Helm, who toured the US not long ago with Iceage's Copenhagen pals Damien Dubrovnik (mem Lust for Youth). That tour culminates in their appearance at Fun Fun Fun Fest and hits NYC on October 12 at Bowery Ballroom, the same venue they played in 2013 with White Lung and Parquet Courts. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon via Ticketmaster.

All dates are listed, with the new video, below...

Watch Ryan Adams Debut Stay With Me In His First Live Show Of 2014
Jul 24, 2014 8:18am | StereoGum

Lately, Ryan Adams’s output has dwindled from “three albums a year” to the more conventional “one album every three years,” and his dip in productivity may have something to do with suffering from an inner-ear disorder called Ménière’s disease. In the new Rolling Stone, Adams describes the disease’s symptoms — “All of a sudden you start seeing double, and then my hand starts shaking, and then its like youre in an elevator and the bottom just drops out” — and says that he’s been successfully treating it with medical marijuana and hypnotherapy. And now he’s getting ready to release his new self-titled album; we’ve already heard first single “Gimme Something Good.” On Tuesday night, Adams played his first show of the year in Portland, Maine, and he debuted the new album track “Stay With Me,” which is not a Sam Smith cover and which sounds like a particularly kickass piece of late-’80s studio-rock. (He also debuted a few more songs, but videos of those songs haven’t shown up online yet.) Below, watch fan-made video of him playing that song and the Heartbreaker classic “Come Pick Me Up,” and check out the show’s setlist.

Arto Lindsay @ LPR - 7/22/14

"When the singing stops, the music just kind of bursts out sometimes," Lindsay remarked about their music. "Like the band's playing the song, and then suddenly there's all this music." So it is with Lindsay's music, but reversed - the band's playing the song, and then suddenly, noise bursts out from Lindsay's little dime store Danelectro guitar. Oddly, absurdly, these are joyful moments - as when, late in Lindsay's set, the band grooved on a stomping version of Prince's "Erotic City." Just after Lindsay sings, softly: "We f- so pretty, you and me," he slashes into the song with his guitar, gutting out its core in an act of gleeful destruction. []
Brasil Summerfest is currently underway in NYC and included a show from no wave pioneer/experimental composer Arto Lindsay at Le Poisson Rouge on Tuesday (7/22). Opening the show was Bigyuki and a set from Zs that featured Greg Fox (Liturgy, Guardian Alien, etc) on drums. Pictures of all three artists are in this post.

You can catch Zs again this weekend at the last Skeletons show before Matt moves out of NYC.

UK garage pioneer Noodles returns with house project Nu-Agenda; hear a track now
Jul 24, 2014 8:11am | Fact Magazine

UK garage don Noodles hasn’t released any of his own productions since 2000.

For the reasons of why the former half of Groove Chronicles along with El-B quit at the peak of UKG’s success, and never really capitalised on his reputation as a godfather of dubstep, you can look forward to an in-depth FACT interview coming very shortly. But in the meantime, you can hear the results of his first recording sessions in 14 years here.

The Nu-Agenda project is a duo with longtime friend, the Leicester grime/bassline/dubstep journeyman Dubchild who has released several projects on Noodles’s DPR label in the last few years and is based strictly on blissed-out, synth-heavy house. As Noodles says, this is my roots, before garage I played house, jungle and techno, and as everyone knows the garage itself emerged from house.

A ten-track self-titled Nu-Agenda album is released on DPR on the 18th August (you can pre-order now), and Noodles promises there’s a lot more to come I’ve been in the studio with some of the most important names from the garage days, too… It’s been a long time coming, but now I’m back to doing what I should be!

Beyoncé re-records Crazy in Love for Fifty Shades of Grey
Jul 24, 2014 8:02am | Cosequence Of Sound

Today brings the first trailer for the Hollywood adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, and with it a big musical surprise. The trailer is soundtracked by a new version of Beyoncés “Crazy in Love”, which she recorded specifically for the film. Watch the trailer and hear the sultry recording below.

Starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey will arrive in theaters on February 13th, 2015. Sam Taylor-Wood, best known for her John Lennon-inspired film Nowhere Boy, serves as the director. Other than that, I have absolutely no idea what the film or book is about; instead, go ask your mother.

It was a perfect summer night in New York City. No humidity, not too hot, a slight breeze, and brilliant moonlit sky. It was the perfect conditions for a night in the park. As part of Celebrate Brooklyn's annual free concerts in Prospect Park, alternative hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030 performed a rare live concert with a full orchestra to help close out their current North American tour. The group, which released their latest record, The Event II, last fall, have been on-and-off the road for the last few months and Deltron fans know that if they are touring now, who knows when they could tour or play again. So, it was no surprise that the Prospect Park Bandshell was jam packed with fans from all over the boroughs, as well as curious ears who wanted to see what was happening in their park that night.

... With the orchestra, Del rapping his head off, Dan conducting, and Koala simply destroying the turntables, all being done in front of trippy images projected on a screen behind the artists, it was full on sensory overload. With a healthy mix of songs from their classic 2000 debut and Event II, the 90-minute set was just too good to end. [Officially A Yuppie]

Alternative hip hop greats Deltron 3030 kept their reunion alive with a summer tour that just wrapped up this past weekend with a free Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park on Saturday (7/19) and an Asbury Park ...

Lee Gamble shares artwork and tracklist for new album KOCH
Jul 24, 2014 7:59am | Fact Magazine

We’ve been offered a little bit more info on Lee Gamble‘s highly anticipated new full-length.

Brummie sound design wizard Lee Gamble is back this autumn, and he’s carrying with him the follow-up to 2012′s acclaimed Dutch Tvashar Plumes. As we reported a few weeks back, it’s called KOCH, but now we can take a peep at the spiffy artwork (above) and marvel at the generous 16-track selection.

It’s billed as a continuation of the themes Gamble explored on the album’s predecessors – the ambient d’n'b deconstructionism of Diversions 1994-1996 and the mutant club music of Dutch Tvashar Plumes, and from what we’ve heard of it so far, we’d have to agree. If you fancy a sneaky listen to one of the album’s highlights, make sure you tune in to FACT’s BBOX radio show tomorrow at 3pm ET (8pm UK).

KOCH will be released on 2LP, CD and digital on September 12, via PAN.

Watch Weezer Bring Back To The Shack To The Tonight Show
Jul 24, 2014 7:55am | StereoGum

Weezer’s new album Everything Will Be Alright In The End looms ever closer, and earlier this week, the band debuted its first single: the big, chunky back-to-basics statement “Back To The Shack.” The denizens of our comments section put some serious time into figuring out whether this was a good song or what, and the results may still be inconclusive. And last night, the band took the song to late-night TV for the first time, performing it for Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show and getting a boisterous “that’s the way to do it, brotha!” for their troubles. (At this point, I’m just waiting for Fallon to hate a performance, gravely shaking his head and muttering, “That’s not the way to do it, brotha.”) Weezer also get bonus points for keeping an Ace Frehley bobblehead prominently displayed on an amp. Watch their performance below.
