John Carpenter returns to the Halloween franchise
May 24, 2016 12:13am | Cosequence Of Sound
Lock your doors, bolt your windows, and turn off the lights! Don’t go away ’cause here’s a piece of news that’ll make your bones jump right out of your skin: Director John Carpenter is returning to the Halloween franchise.
That’s right. As we previously reported back in December, The Weinstein Company and Miramax were allegedly shopping the franchise and looking for new distributors. Well, let’s just say Michael Myers has come home, and it’s Blumhouse.
Tonight, Blumhouse founder/CEO Jason Blum, Halloween producer Malek Akkad, Miramax, and Trancas International Films came together at a press conference to announce a “team-up of historic proportions” and one that will “bring a new Halloween to the big screen.”
(Read: Halloween Returns: A Guide to Make One Good Sequel)
They’re smoking gun is Carpenter himself, who will serve as the Executive Producer and Creative Consultant, which will undoubtedly get him all the money he reportedly never received from the incredibly lucrative 1978 original. Even better, Blum dubbed the Master of Horror this project’s “Godfather.”
Halloween needs to return to its traditions, Carpenter explained. I feel like the movies have gotten away from that Michael is not just a human being; hes a force of nature, like the wind. Thats what makes him so sca...
Good guy Bruce Springsteen gives Adele the jacket off his back
May 23, 2016 10:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Adele Springsteen will be proud of the good deed her son did recently for Adele Atkins. Bruce Springsteen played a show at Rock in Rio Lisbon last week, and pop goddess Adele made a point to attend. However, the noted winey had a bit too much to drink and forgot to dress for the weather.
Over the weekend, the pop star played her own concert in Lisbon and told the crowd of Springsteen’s act of chivalry.
I was wearing a ridiculous skirt, which was silly. It gets quite windy in Lisbon. I had a little thin jumper on, and Bruce came out and said: Youre going to be cold. I was a bit drunk, Id had four glasses of wine, so I said Id be fine.”
He gave me his coat – so I was watching the show, wearing his coat,” Adele added. “I was too embarrassed to try to put my arms in because, obviously, too small. So I just wore it on my shoulders.”
Like I said, Adele Springsteen taught her son well.
Netflix nabs exclusive streaming rights to Disney, Marvel, LucasFilm, and Pixar movies
May 23, 2016 8:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Beginning in September, there will be only one place to stream the likes of Captain America: Civil War, The Jungle Book, Finding Dory, or Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Netflix.
Netflix and Disney struck a deal way back in 2012 for exclusive pay TV rights for all Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios, and LucasFilm movies released from 2016 onward. That deal finally takes effect beginning in September of this year.
Prior to the unprecedented agreement, Netflix would have to wait until after networks like HBO or Starz had their own exclusivity windows. That typically came well after a movie’s Blu-ray/DVD release, meaning Netflix subscribers would have to put up with huge, often seemingly random wait periods before they could watch the latest animated Pixar masterpiece of Marvel superhero extravaganza. With this new deal, not only will the streaming service get first-look at all the films from these companies, they’ll get the only look.
Until Netflix’s first-run TV window expires, HBO, Hulu, Amazon, and all other streaming or pay services will be blanked my Disney-owned properties. The deal won’t affect movies released prior to January 1st, 2016, but for things like Civil War, The BFG, and Alice Through the Looking Glass, Netflix will be the one and only place to stream.
“From September onwards, N...
Eminem sells bricks from his childhood home with reissue of The Marshall Mathers LP
May 23, 2016 8:25pm | Fact Magazine
Get a piece of the house on the album’s iconic cover.
Eminem is currently selling the actual bricks from the childhood home famously depicted on the cover of The Marshall Mathers LP. They have been released as part of the cassette reissue for the album, which follows the cassette reissue of The Slim Shady LP.
The bricks come in a special case along with a plaque and are in a limited edition of 700. They were salvaged from the house which was torn in 2013 (it appeared that same year on the cover of The Marshall Mathers LP 2).
Also available are dog tags made from wood salvaged from the home. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Marshall Mathers Foundation, which provides funds for organizations working with at-risk youth.
Take a look at the bricks below and head to Eminem’s website to order one.
The Avalanches share teaser trailer pointing to release of new song this Friday
May 23, 2016 8:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound
The Avalanches are the all-time kings of the tease. Since releasing their debut (and only) record, Since I Left You, in 2000, the Australian have been working on a follow-up, but it never seems to be ready for release. It was on our most anticipated in 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014, and it’s still not out. (We left it off the last two years because fool us four times, shame on us, but fool us five…) However, this year, shit’s finally getting real.
The electronic outfit have confirmed their first live performances in 15 years, including spots at Primavera Sound, Field Day, and Splendour in the Grass. Now, they’ve released a mysterious new teaser clip that appears to hint at collaborators for their ever-forthcoming sophomore album.
Designed to look like a trailer for a documentary called Since They Left Us: Whatever Happened to the Avalanches?, the clip recounts the story of The Avalanches throughout most of the aughts and ’10s. Then guests begin to appear, like Jennifer Herrema of Royal Trux, Ariel Pink, and Danny Brown. All three of those artists have been connected to the new album in the past, and the latter two speak of their work with the band in this new clip. Kirin J. Callinan (formerly of Mercy Arms) also appears, as does one Father John Misty. When asked what it was like working with The Avalanches, the man aka Josh Tillman responds, Um, What are th...

The Avalanches release teaser video featuring Danny Brown, Ariel Pink, Father John Misty and more
May 23, 2016 7:42pm | Fact Magazine
The list includes previously reported collaborators and new faces.
The Avalanches really are reuniting and it looks like that won’t be all judging from a new teaser video they’ve released.
Framed as a movie trailer, “Since They Left Us” traces clips of the band’s long awaited second album while showing interviews with collaborators including Danny Brown, Ariel Pink, Royal Trux/Black Bananas founder Jennifer Herrema and Kirin J. Callinan.
Involvement from Brown, Herrema and Pink has been part of the album’s lore for years, but Father John Misty and Callinan’s involvement has not been mentioned before.
Watch the video below.
Can we say it yet? Can we please say it’s going to finally happen?

Eminem is selling a brick, a cassette tape, and a t-shirt for $350
May 23, 2016 7:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Traditionally, the 1st anniversary is celebrated with gold, the 5th with sapphire, the 10th with diamond, and the 25th with silver. But do you know what type of stone is used to mark one’s 16th anniversary?
For Eminem, it’s brick.
To celebrate the 16th anniversary of The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem is reissuing the album as a limited-edition cassette tape. But the real highlight is what comes packaged alongside the cassette: a t-shirt, dog tags, and an actual brick from the rapper’s childhood home in Detroit.
Famously featured in the artwork for The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem’s home at 19946 Dresden Street was recently torn down by the city due to structural safety issues. Prior to its destruction, however, Eminem and his team were able to “salvage the brick and wood materials from the home” so that they could later be re-packaged for the reasonable cost of $350.00.
That’s right — the price tag for Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP reissue is $350.00. If you prefer only the cassette and brick, the price is a more affordable $313.00.
Interested buyers can grab the limited-edition set here. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Marshall Mathers Foundation, which provides funds for organizations working with at-risk youth in Michigan and throughout the U.S.

Joanna Newsom delivered a dazzling two-song performance on Kimmel last week. Today she’s back in the spotlight as the latest guest on Marc Marons WTF podcast.
The singer-songwriter talked about her stellar 2015 LP, Divers and how she’s evolved musically over the last decade, what it was like growing up in California’s Nevada City, a weed-growing community, and her experiences with producers Van Dyke Parks and past WTF podcast guest Steve Albini.
Newsom also discussed her relationship with husband and comedian Andy Samberg (“I’m awestruck by what he does”), as well as Fleetwood Macs Rumours, the first-ever LP she purchased at age 16 (“That album has to have influenced me more than anything…”).
Listen to the whole episode here (the interview portion begins around 11:40 mark).
Radiohead actually played Creep during their concert in Paris this evening
May 23, 2016 5:03pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Video via YouTube / Netranger09
“Creep” will forever be emblematic of the radio-friendly alt-rock that Radiohead grew to despise mere minutes after Pablo Honey hit record shelves two decades ago. The band has affectionately described their best-selling single as “crap,” and deemed fans who requested it in concert as “anally retarded.”
A 1996 feature in the Guardian saw the band detail the emotional distress the song caused, with Thom Yorke describing the subsequent two-year world tour as akin to “[sucking] Satan’s cock.”
“Their first Ep in May 1992, Drill (first chorus: ‘I’m better off dead’), was refreshingly dark and insistent, invigorating enough immediately to win them a fiercely loyal following. But disaster struck when their second, ‘Creep’ (with the chorus: ‘I wish I was special/ You’re so fucking special/ But I’m a creep’), became a one-song phenomenon, an American anthem of alienation and self-loathing, propelling their first album, Pablo Honey, into the American Top 40. In a self-fulfilling prophecy, Yorke became ‘the Creep guy’.
“Far from providing a sort of palliative to their neuroses, Radiohead turned success into something that only made matters worse. Encouraged by their American record company to capitalize,...
