DJ Dodger Stadium (Jerome LOL + Samo Sound Boy) released an LP, celebrating in NYC tonight (video & streams)
Jul 25, 2014 8:33am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy teamed up as DJ Dodger Stadium back in 2011 (maybe you caught them at last year's Warm Up), and earlier this month they put out their debut album, Friend of Mine, on LA label Body High. Musically speaking, the album pulls mostly from house, but not in the way Disclosure or their peers have reimagined thumping '90s dance pop, and definitely not in the way the EDM world has embraced the genre. It's an understated take on the types of tracks you'd hear in a Detroit or a Chicago or a NYC club in 1992, but it's fit for the current era where so much dance music has made its way from the club to a pair of headphones.

As much as the album makes you nod your head, the album makes you feel. Many of its songs repeat and toy with a single vocal loop for their entirety, and though that's not a new trend, there's a level of emotion here that makes it more similar to James Blake repeating "My brother and my sister don't speak to me, but I don't blame them" than Daft Punk repeating "Around the world." Album standout "Love Songs" begins with a warped vocal, "Lately I've been singing love songs to myself," that gets progressively clearer as the beat slides in, and by the end is a gorgeous choir. Like Blake's lyric, though it's just one phrase, it continues to take new shape and can be as effective as someone spilling their heart out over pages of lyrics. Watch the video for "Love Songs" wi...

Sebastien Tellier released new album, made a live video, got remixed by Hercules & Love Affair (streams)
Jul 25, 2014 8:25am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Groovy dude Sébastien Tellier released L'Aventura this month via Record Makers. The concept for this one is its recollections of his childhood, reimagined as if he grew up in Brazil instead of France. Tropical heat and French cool have long been a winning combo and with flutes, strings and "bah bah" choruses (arranged by Brazilian music legend Arthur Verocai), this coulda been released by Sergio Mendes (or Serge Gainsbourg) in 1975. Also appearing on the album: new age / synth icon Jean Michel Jarre and percussionist Robertinho Silva. It's well worth checking out and can stream it via Rdio.

Meanwhile, Tellier has given one of the album's synthier tracks, "Aller Vers Le Soleil," to Hercules & Love Affair to remix, who give the ethereal track a solid disco thump. We've got the premiere of that in this post. We've also got the premiere of a Red Bull Session that Sebastien did, performing the new album's "L'adulte" and "Cochon Ville" live. Watch that, and the music video for "L'adulte" as well, below...

Watch Tweedy Breeze Through Summer Noon On Fallon
Jul 25, 2014 8:19am | StereoGum

Spencer Tweedy, son of Wilco frontman Jeff, has probably watched his dad perform on TV at least a handful of times. Last night, Jeff was on TV again, and Spencer was up there with him. The two Tweedys have formed the new band Tweedy together, and their Sukierae, their first album as a unit, is out in a couple of months. Last night, Jeff and Spencer performed on The Tonight Show together, doing the breezy, strummy midtempo track “Summer Noon,” with members of Lucius backing them up. Watch the performance below.

Eddie Vedder had a lot more fun at the Cubs game than Jack White did
Jul 25, 2014 7:54am | Cosequence Of Sound

It’s been a star-studded, rocker-filled week at Wrigley. Unlike Jack White, however, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder seemed to relish his time with the Cubs on Thursday night. The longtime fan threw out the first pitch, led the audience in singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”, and even spent time in the booth discussing his fandom.

Vedder and his family attended last night’s game in tribute of his uncle John, who took him to his first game. During the bottom of the ninth inning, the entire family, turned their back to the camera to reveal John’s name on all of their jerseys.

Watch the various clips below.

Turns Out Its Possible For A Rock Star To Enjoy A Cubs Game
Jul 25, 2014 7:50am | StereoGum

We’ve all been having fun with that photo of Jack White at a Cubs game, looking furious that his life had taken such a turn. But if you’re a rock star at Wrigley Field, your evening doesn’t have to be barren and joyless. When White showed up at Wrigley on Tuesday night, he was there with Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, a noted Cubs fan who’s been to a ton of games. (Pearl Jam also played a big show at Wrigley Field last summer.) Vedder was back at the stadium again last night to watch the Cubs lose badly to the San Diego Padres, and he more or less taught a master class on how to enjoy the game if you’re a visiting rock star. He sang “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.” He threw out the first pitch — a bit inside, maybe, but a legitimate pitch, something 50 Cent couldn’t manage. And he autographed a ton of balls for the team to sell. Below, watch a glowing-with-delight Vedder throwing out that first pitch and singing the traditional seventh-inning stretch song.

Watch Sharon Van Ettens Stunning Letterman Performance
Jul 25, 2014 7:22am | StereoGum

It’s always a bit obnoxious when indie bands roll into their late-night TV debuts looking like they just rolled out of bed, so I’m weirdly delighted to note that Sharon Van Etten and her entire backing band seemed to be rocking their very best outfits when they appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman last night. SVE seems to be developing one of those telekinetic bonds with her current touring band, and that was in full evidence last night, as they played a version of “Every Time The Sun Comes Up” that was full of quiet, confident little instrumental flourishes. It’s becoming more and more apparently everyday that she’s someone you should go see if she’s coming to your town. Watch the performance below.

Strip club rap, Bay Area ratchet and Zuse: the weeks best mixtapes
Jul 25, 2014 7:16am | Fact Magazine

Each week, FACTs Mixtape Round-Up trawls through the untamed world of free mixes, radio specials and live blends so you dont have to.

Weve now decided to break this into two features: the weeks Best Free Mixes (think Soundcloud, Mixcloud) and the weeks Best Mixtapes (think DatPiff, LiveMixtapes). Naturally, therell always be some level of crossover between the two, but for now weve split the columns up, with Mixes running every Thursday, and Mixtapes every Friday.

After an admittedly slow one last week we’re back to full power with a brace of absolute killers. This week’s haul includes a collaboration between two of Atlanta’s finest, a massive statement from Bay Area’s HBK Gang, a slice of Young Money R&B and loads more.

UKs new anti-piracy measures will see illegal downloaders issued with four letters  and thats it
Jul 25, 2014 7:01am | Fact Magazine

UK gives up on punishing pirates.

In what amounts to a massive ¯\_()_/¯ from the government and ISPs, the UK’s new anti-piracy measures will no longer see illegal downloaders threatened with disconnection.

Instead, people suspected of pirating music, movies and TV shows will be sent up to four warning letters annually from 2015 onwards. And if they ignore them? Well, nothing.

The government says the aim of the new Voluntary Copyright Alert Programme is to give people alternatives by pointing them in direction of compelling, legal alternatives such as iTunes, Spotify and Netflix (which also raises the question of precisely which legal services people will be nudged towards, and whether the government should be endorsing specific companies).

The UKs biggest ISPs – BT, Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk – have already agreed to the £3.5 million campaign, and others are expected to sign up later.

The programme is a drastically watered-down version of the “three-strikes” approach put forward in 2012, which would have seen persistent illegal downloaders disconnected from the internet after three warning letters.

Meanwhile, copyright holders are fighting back without the help of governments or ISPs, serving Google with a record 5.9 million takedown requests in just one week last September. [via Digital Spy]
