Means To An End: Peter Hook plays the entire Joy Division back catalogue
May 23, 2015 2:53am | Drowned In Sound

May 18th 2015: Thirty-five years to the day that Ian Curtis tragically passed away. It was also five years ago today that Peter Hook And The Light played their first ever gig, performing Joy Division's seminal debut Unknown Pleasures in full. So, bearing that in mind, it was perhaps understandable that he would choose that particular date to pay the ultimate tribute to his departed singer. In March, [Hook announced that his band would play 3 sets containing Joy Division's] entire written and recorded output](http://www.peterhook.co.uk/#/news/so-this-is-permanence-the-light-perform-the-complete-works-of-joy-division-christ-church-macclesfield-mon-18-may-15) - a staggering 48 songs in total - in one exquisite performance. That he chose an 18th Century listed building in Macclesfield - Curtis's hometown - probably bore some significance. As did the decision to involve two charities - the Epilepsy Society and the Churches Conservation Trust - with all proceeds from ticket sales being split between the two.

Inevitably, tickets for the 450 capacity venue sold out in minutes, both punters and touts loitering conspicuously looking for spares right up until show time. For a band held in such reverence, Christ Church seemed a fitting choice of venue. While its acoustics undoubtedly benefited the sound emanating from the stage set-up on the altar, it gave those fortunate enough to secure a ticket - some had travelled from as far afield as Holland, Ger...

Parquet Courts, Radioactivity, Pill @ House of Vans
Part of HoV's "Almost Summer" series, this is a pretty killer free show, headlined by locals Parquet Courts, and also including Texas rippers Radioactivity and the sax-fueled, gleefully unhinged Pill. RSVP is closed at this point.

Listen to new Drake songs
May 22, 2015 5:51pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Drake needs to invest in some better anti-hacking software and get those firewalls in place, because for the second time in less than a week, the OVO magnate has new music hitting the web without his seal of approval. Earlier in the week it was his Beyoncé collaboration “Can I” which was released into the wild, unfinished and unapproved. Today, two more tracks have found their way online: “On A Wave” which features Tinashe (whose name I only recently learned is pronounced like it rhymes with Tina Fey), and the sappy but optimistic “Go Out Tonight”.

“On A Wave” has an end of the night feel to it, and meshes aesthetically with his most recent mixtape If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late, while “Go Out Tonight” has more of a loosie vibe with a Noah “40” Shebib beat that sounds like it samples mid 80’s Genesis synths and some drum machine bongos. Listen below before they’re pulled down.



ASAP Rocky premieres
May 22, 2015 5:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

East and West coast hip-hop unite on “Electric Body”, a new collaboration between Harlem’s ASAP Rocky and Compton’s ScHoolboy Q. Listen below.

The track appears on ASAP’s new album At.Long.Last.ASAP., marking our fourth preview: Other early teasers include 


A$AP Rocky
May 22, 2015 5:27pm | StereoGum
With A$AP Rocky's At.Long.Last.A$AP just around the corner, tracks are starting trickle out. We've already heard the officially released "L$D," "Everyday," and "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2," and now the Schoolboy Q-featuring track "Electric Body" has made its way online. As with most leaks, you'll have to put up with stupid tags … More »



Confirmed: Kanye West went through a McDonald
May 22, 2015 5:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Truthfully, there’s really no good reason to post this, aside from it being Friday afternoon on Memorial Day weekend and chances are you’ve already began drinking and will find this even more funny. Also, it’s just another example of Kanye West’s eccentric nature, previously seen in him ordering Chinese food from jail,


Drake
May 22, 2015 5:14pm | StereoGum
Looks like Drake has another leak problem. (Last year, if you'll recall, he was forced to release three tracks after hackers got a hold of them.) Earlier this week, an unfinished version of Beyoncé collab "Can I" made its way its way online, and now two other tracks have surfaced. Both of them … More »



The 5 Best Videos Of The Week
May 22, 2015 4:30pm | StereoGum
This was a week crammed full of great videos, way too many to fit onto this list. But my favorite subplot was this: Taylor Swift drummed up weeks of hype and probably spent a fortune to make her kung-fu feminist G.I. Joe cameo party and to unveil it in the biggest way possible for a … More »



Dan Snaith Shares New Untitled Daphni Track
May 22, 2015 4:02pm | StereoGum
Caribou's Dan Snaith appeared on Jon Hopkins' latest BBC Radio 1 Residency show and shared a new track under his Daphni alias. Snaith said the track is something he threw together to play in DJ sets and that it doesn't have a title or raison d'existence. He continues: "It's sloppily put together, poorly mixed, ineffective … More »



Chris Cornell Announces New Solo Album Higher Truth
May 22, 2015 4:00pm | StereoGum
Over the past few years, Chris Cornell has been busy with the Soundgarden reunion but, earlier this year, he let slip that he was hard at work on a fourth studio album. His last solo record was 2009's misguided Timbaland-produced Scream. Today, he's confirmed that the new album will come out in the … More »



Shut Up, Dude: This Week
May 22, 2015 3:57pm | StereoGum
This week saw more speculation and controversy about the future of streaming music. Spotify announced an expansion into video, news, and fitness (and coffee), but not before leaked documents revealed the Swedish behemoth has paid Sony Music millions in advances and ad inventory that probably weren't shared with artists. Meanwhile, Tidal has … More »



GENER8ION
May 22, 2015 3:56pm | StereoGum
May has been a big month for M.I.A. She shared a new demo and teased a potentially controversial video, and when A$AP Rocky's At.Long.Last.A$AP credits broke, her name was included alongside many of her fellow superstars. Now Ms. Arulpragasam has guested on a new track by the French producer Surkin's music/art/fashion collective … More »



50 Cent Sues Rick Ross Over Sex Tape
May 22, 2015 3:38pm | StereoGum
Sex tapes are the most effective way to shame and blackmail in the 21st century -- which is probably why I'm so proud of Kim Kardashian for turning her former shame into a multi-million-dollar empire. But I digress. This sex tape story is a much sadder tale involving 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson), Rick Ross … More »
