Trailer for Ghostbusters remake is the most disliked trailer in YouTube history
May 1, 2016 8:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound

When Sony dropped the trailer for Paul Feigs reboot of Ghostbusters, the reaction wasn’t even mixed — it was universally hated. Now, the preview’s underwhelming status has been solidified in the annals of YouTube history, as it’s officially the site’s most disliked movie trailer of all time.

As of this writing, the official stream of the trailer has a staggering 604,702 dislikes against 213,228 likes, with 29,698,622 total views. Not only does that make it the most disliked trailer ever, it’s the 23rd most disliked video in general. By comparison, generally deplored movies like 2015’s Fantastic Four and Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous Six have only 20,175 and 5,803 dislikes, respectively. That kind of vast difference brings up an interesting query: Why all the hate?

For one thing, the Internet is a hive of mob mentality, and that often manifests as hatred. Many of the other videos on the most disliked list are things that have largely been appreciated by the general public, but that detractors abhor with passion. Justin Bieber’s “Baby” video sits at No. 1 with a hearty 6,042,981 dislikes. While there are objectively some terrible things about that clip, the song also helped launch an international superstar and has gone 12 times platinum. It’s also simultaneously the 10th most viewed YouTub...


My Morning Jacket cover Purple Rain at New Orleans Jazz Fest watch
May 1, 2016 8:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Since My Morning Jacket returned to the road last week, each of their shows have included a tribute to Prince in the form of a few covers. During their headlining gig New Orleans Jazz Fest on Friday evening, they broke out “Purple Rain” (above) and “Sign O’ the Times”. They’ve been mixing those two songs plus “Raspberry Beret” into their recent gigs’ setlists, performing all three in a row to close out their tour-opening concert at Oklahoma City’s The Criterion last Wednesday. Check out footage of that triumphant tribute trilogy below.

“Sign O’ the Times”, “Raspberry Beret”, and “Purple Rain”:

MMJ aren’t the only ones to use Jazz Fest to pay tribute to the passing of the Purple One. The weekend prior, Janelle Monaé dedicated her entire set to her mentor and friend, performing “Take Me With You” and “Let’s Go Crazy”.

Radiohead have disappeared completely
May 1, 2016 1:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Radiohead are quite literally disappearing completely. Earlier today, the band’s website slowly decreased in opacity to the point where it is now completely white. Meanwhile, all postings on the band’s Twitter and Facebook channels, including Thom Yorke’s own, have been deleted and the profile pictures are now white.

Yesterday, Radiohead apparently mailed out cryptic leaflets reading, Sing a song of sixpence that goes/ Burn the Witch/ We know where you live, with an embossed Radiohead logo. Burn the Witch is the name of an unreleased Radiohead song dating back to the mid-2000s.

All indications point to the imminent release of Radiohead’s ninth album.



Radiohead speculated to drop new album tonight after website disappears
May 1, 2016 1:15pm | Fact Magazine

Something’s happening.

Radiohead have deleted their entire web presence, sparking speculation their new album will arrive tonight (May 1).

Fans have been on the lookout for some kind of development this weekend after mysterious leaflets were sent to fans in the UK featuring the phrase ‘Burn The Witch’. April 30, the day the leaflets were received, is celebrated in Germanic folklore as Witches Night, while the first Sunday in May is traditionally International Dawn Chorus Day referenced in the name of the company the band founded in the run-up to the release.

Early today, fans began to notice the Radiohead website appeared to be “fading”. The opacity of the site was dropping every 10-15 minutes, as noted by Reddit users. It was speculated a new website and album may be launched when opacity reached zero.

At roughly 6pm GMT, as the website went blank, so did the group’s social media accounts: their Twitter and Facebook profile pictures were replaced with a white, blank image, with the group’s previous posts disappearing.


Anderson .Paak stitches together three album cuts for new Malibu video medley
May 1, 2016 12:35pm | Fact Magazine

New video features BJ The Chicago Kid, SA-RA, Krondon, and Donald Trump.

Anderson.Paak has unveiled a new video that stitches together three songs from his second album, Malibu, released in January this year. Co-directed by .Paak and Chris Le, the video uses green screens and animation to bring to life the story .Paak tells in the music.

The songs featured in the video, shared via Apple Music, include ‘The Season’ and ‘Carry Me’, which are joined together on the album, and ‘The Waters’, featuring BJ The Chicago Kid who appears in the video.

The scene moves from country house to dead end jobs, including a cameo by presidential candidate Donald Trump as a fire-breathing monster, and onto a baptism-like ceremony before ending in an underwater rebirth. Other cameos include SA-RA Creative Partners’ Om’mas Keith and Shafiq Husayn as well as L.A rapper Krondon (with whom Husayn debuted as White Boiz last year), who take on the roles of psychiatrist and baptists respectively.

It’s been a good year for the Oxnard native who signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label shortly after the release of Malibu and performed at Coachella, with his show one of the highlights for many critics and fans. A short Beats-sponsored documentary was released this week detailing how .Paak and Dre collaborated on the Coachella set.

Watch Flying Lotus and Pharrell discuss the current state of hip-hop
May 1, 2016 11:28am | Fact Magazine

As long as the beat’s hitting.

Los Angeles producer Flying Lotus is the guest on the latest episode of Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener’s Beats 1 radio show OTHERtone.

The trio discuss the current state of hip-hop in the show, and have shared a video of part of the conversation ahead of its broadcast today at 3pm EST via Apple Music’s radio streaming service.

The shared segment kicks off with Vener asking if hip-hop is in a good place right now leading to an interesting discussion of the shifts that the music has seen over the past decades both lyrically and sonically, including the growing importance of the producer in the conversation. Flying Lotus and Pharrell both argue that the current state of things is a reflection of the changes the music has always gone through and that fighting it is to refuse progression.

Flying Lotus, real name Steven Ellison, begins by admitting that this is a difficult conversation to have before stating that there is space today “for all kinds of different lyricists” and that “as long as the beat’s hitting” things are ok. Pharrell for his part makes the case that we shouldn’t get caught up in “how the system used to be” and that today’s rap reflects a reality where people would rather feel good than hear a story.

Watch the conversation below. The live broadcast will also feature a gues...
