Watch: The Hippest Episode of 'Jeopardy!' Ever...
Dec 12, 2013 9:18pm | The Daily Swarm
We can’t decide if Tuesday’s episode of Jeopardy! was the coolest or lamest penetration of left-of-center music into the mainstream. Well, it was interesting to say the least. Via Consequence of Sound:
Kelis Finds Home at U.K. Indie Ninja Tune For Next Album, 'Food'...
Dec 12, 2013 9:10pm | The Daily Swarm
Kelis has had a trying career thus far, but with the recent news that she would be releasing her upcoming Dave Sitek-produced album, Food, on renowned U.K. leftfield indie label Ninja Tune, the R&B songstress may have finally found her groove. Via The Guardian:
Collaborations with everyone from Calvin Harris to David Guetta failed to make an impact, but TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek may just be the right man for the job:
Pussy Riot Verdict Review Ordered...
Dec 12, 2013 7:58pm | The Daily Swarm
The heavy-handed guilty verdict that sent members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot to jail is set to be reviewed. Members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina may be released earlier than expected due to a Putin-backed amnesty bill, but an even earlier release through different means could prove embarrassing for Putin and the Russian government.

Madonna Top-Earning Woman in Music for 2013...
Dec 12, 2013 6:54pm | The Daily Swarm
True to her namesake, Material Girl Madonna sits atop the list of the highest-earning musicians of 2013. Scratch that, Madonna was also the highest-paid celebrity of 2013. She made a ton of bank from her Material Girl clothing line, along with her Truth or Dare fragrance, but the majority of her earnings came from her massively successful MDMA Tour, which grossed $305 million. Via Forbes:
Madonna’s $125 million towered over the competition with Lady Gaga coming in at a distant second:
Beyoncé came in at the number four spot with $53 million.
Who Are the Hardest-Working Artists in the Biz?
Dec 12, 2013 5:46pm | The Daily Swarm
The distinction given to James Brown as being “hardest working man in show business” was more a reflection of his ability to leave everything he had on the stage and not so much a quantifiable title. But since his passing, that void has been left unfulfilled… Until now. Based on shows played and miles travelled, here are the hardest working acts of 2013. Via Consequence of Sound:

Blitzen Trapper Thirsty Man Video
Dec 12, 2013 5:38pm | StereoGum
Portland folk-rock band Blitzen Trapper recently put out their new album VII a few months ago, but only dropped this new video today. Director Robbie Augspurger turns “Thirsty Man” into the soundtrack to a very surreal and goofy take on noir tropes. There are moments that seem like things that have appeared in countless films (the mysterious woman, the bloody interrogation, etc.) but everything is slightly off in a pretty entertaining way. Why does the mysterious man have a framed picture of a poodle? Why is everyone fighting over that phone shaped like a lady’s shoe? Probably better not to ask. Watch it below.
Damon Albarn Releasing Solo Debut...

Yellow Ostrich Shades
Dec 12, 2013 5:19pm | StereoGum
We last heard from Yellow Ostrich last fall when the Wisconsin combo released 2012′s best Ghost EP not by Sky Ferreira. They’ll be back with their next Barsuk full-length Cosmos in February, and from the sound of lead single “Shades,” they’ve pumped up the volume this time. Out with the splendidly spare, R&B-inflected “Ghost” sound; in with the loud guitars and groovy bass. “Shades” is a new millennial psych-rocker worthy of Tame Impala or Temples, but it also reflects Radiohead and Coldplay if you gaze upon it from the right angle. I trust you won’t regret pressing play below.

Milk Music No, Nothing, My Shelter Video
Dec 12, 2013 4:20pm | StereoGum
Milk Music released a statement today saying they will not be playing live shows anymore. They promise that this has nothing to do with the state of the band, rather it’s an artistic decision they’ve made while they focus more on recording and making videos. Speaking of videos they also put out their newest one. It’s for “No, Nothing, My Shelter,” one of the tracks off their Album Of The Week release Cruise Your Illusion. Read the full statement from the band and watch the video below, directed by Dylan Sharp of Gun Outfit.

Julianna Barwick at the Guggenheim in 2012 (more by
Brooklyn ambient pop artist Julianna Barwick has some tour dates scheduled for February; none in NYC, but she'll be playing her hometown much sooner as an opener at the first two nights of Phosphorescent's four-night run at Music Hall of Williamsburg (12/18-21). The first night, which Phosphorescent plays solo, is still on sale, but the other three full-band shows are sold out. Heaven's Jail opens nights 3 and 4. All JB dates are listed below.

Wye Oak announces US tour dates, new album due out early 2014
Dec 12, 2013 3:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In January, Wye Oak’‘s Jenn Wasner will be one of several indie musicians touring Gene Clark’s No Other. But come March, she’ll reconvene with drummer/keyboardist Andy Stack for Wye Oak’s newest run of US shows.

Chvrches @ The McKittrick Hotel, NYC 12/11/13
Dec 12, 2013 3:47pm | StereoGum
I considered myself extremely lucky when it came to Chvrches this year. I think I am one of the very few audience members who got to see both the first show of their US Tour (at Sasquatch! Festival) and the final, Tuesday night’s private performance for SiriusXM at the McKittrick Hotel, the same building where the popular interactive play Sleep No More is performed.
