RZA Gives Raekwon 30 Days To Get On Board Or No New Wu-Tang Album
Apr 23, 2014 2:24pm | StereoGum
In recent months we’ve been witness to an escalating feud between Wu-Tang Clan members RZA (who’s desperately trying to assemble one last group LP called A Better Tomorrow) and Raekwon (who declared himself on strike from the Wu because he thinks RZA is an out-of-touch control freak). RZA tried to win Rae over with kindness Monday, telling Hot 97, “When you form Voltron, you need every piece. We need [Raekwon] there. I want him there. I ask him over and over to be there. Lets just come together.” Now, in an interview with SI Now, RZA has laid down an ultimatum: If Raekwon doesn’t come on board within the next 30 days, the new Wu-Tang album won’t come out. RZA told host Maggie Gray that A Better Tomorrow is slated to come out in July and that as things stand currently he’ll have to decide whether to shelve the album or release it without Raekwon. Because RZA can’t imagine releasing a Wu-Tang album without every living member, he said the more likely scenario is that the record will never see the light of day. He did say he believes he and Rae will work things out, but given the trajectory of this conflict so far, that seems like wishful thinking. Watch the interview below.
A Victim of Society releasing debut LP (stream a track)
Apr 23, 2014 2:20pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
If you're from North America and you're not familiar with Athens, Greece psychedelic rock duo A Victim of Society, they may be familiar to some of your favorite psych bands. They've played recent Athens shows with The Black Angels, Moon Duo, Dirty Beaches and Disappears, and if you're a fan of any of those bands, you'll likely dig AVOS too. Their debut album, Distractions, comes out soon via Greek label Inner Ear Records (also home to their art rock neighbors The Callas), and you can get a taste of that from its single "Certain Sense," which premieres in this post. The track is a total trip through spacey guitar effects, distortion-drenched vocals, and demonic surf-rock melodies.
Check it out below...

Founding Veruca Salt members Nina Gordon, Louise Post, Steve Lack, and Jim Shapiro are currently working on a new full-length and will hit the road this summer, marking their first tour with the original lineup since 1995. Consult their full itinerary.

Sigur Rós Jónsi scores atomic bomb TV show Manhattan
Apr 23, 2014 2:12pm | Fact Magazine
Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi is set to dip his toe into scoring yet again.
At this point the singer/songwriter is an old hand – aside from helping out Cameron Crowe on numerous occasions, Jónsi has also collaborated with pal (and regular foil) Alex Somers on recent indie flick The Wilderness of James, and this isn’t even mentioning all the times Sigur Rós have ended up used as cinematic catnip.
Well now Jónsi and Alex Somers are set to make a jump to the small screen, penning music for upcoming US TV show Manhattan. The series is set in the midst of the Second World War, at the point when the pursuit of new destructive technology led to the development of the frightening atomic bomb. Codenamed The Manhattan Project, the device was eventually deployed in Japan, and is seen as the action that brought the war to a bloody conclusion.
Manhattan is helmed by The West Wing‘s Thomas Schlamme, and written by Masters of Sex scribe Sam Shaw, and if anyone can help bring a sufficient blend of horror and triumph it’s Jónsi. The show is set to debut on WGN in July. [via Exclaim]
Joey Bada$$ Mr. Wonderful
Apr 23, 2014 2:10pm | StereoGum
The young Brooklyn boom-bap nostalgist Joey Bada$$ is apparently way more of an MMA fan than anyone realized. His new song “Mr. Wonderful” is an ode to the UFC light heavyweight fighter Phil Davis, and Davis will use it as entrance music before his forthcoming bout against Anthony Johnson. The song is only two minutes long, and it’s literally entirely about Davis and all the ways he’ll beat you up. The beat, from producer Kirk Knight is a weird bleepy thing and a welcome sign that Bada$$ might move beyond ’90s-rap pastiches. Listen below.
Listen: PAWS Owls Talons Clenching My Heart

PAWS – Photo by Martin Baker
The great thing about PAWS’ new track, Owls Talons Clenching My Heart, is its honesty. Despite the track’s super poetic title, the lyrics are simple and confused: “And I feel bad, because youll be mad/and thatll make you sad/and I dont want to make you sad.” It reads like a note written in the middle of the night from one lover (or ex-lover) to another. The echo-y nature of the vocals captivates and invites you to snuggle into its warmth. Listen to the track (via Stereogum) below, and anticipate some mixed emotions.
Tour Dates For PAWS:
04/23 – Cleveland, OH – Grog Shop
04/24 – Columbus, OH – The Basement
04/25 – Chicago, IL – Lincoln Hall
04/26 – Minneapolis, MN – 7th St Entry

Chart Attack presents Universe: A Live Soundtrack Experiment, featuring Absolutely Free and Fresh Snow
Apr 23, 2014 1:45pm | Chart Attack
Like most things in vogue with music nowadays, movies with live soundtracks are impractical, yet hold a certain spiritual and sonic allure. We still buy records, and we're strongly considering a physical subscription to Wax Poetics, so it's no surprise that we're now planning a free, all-ages live soundtrack event of our own.
On Thursday, May 15 at The Revue Cinema in Toronto, we're hosting a screening of three galactic short films of our home in space, with original scores, composed and performed live by a trio of local psychedelic acts: Absolutely Free, Fresh Snow, and Marcel Ramagnano. Each artist will bring their own musical meditations from real-life images of people and planets: a montage of archival film footage from planet Earth and its inhabitants; a look at the Apollo 11 mission and man's first steps on the moon; and sublimely abstract (but genuine) satellite photography of Saturn and its moons.
Three films, three performances, one night only. It's fuelled by Pistonhead, with refreshments on sale for $4. Again, the show's free, and you can bring your child.
It's at 400 Roncesvalles Avenue (just south of Dundas West station). Doors at 8:30PM, films start at 9PM sharp. We'll see you Thursday, May 15 for a unique exploration of our cosmic backyard.
Watch Absolutely Free's poolside performance of "Clothed Woman, Sitting" ...
Mixtape Of The Week: Gucci Mane & Young Thug Young Thugga Mane La Flare
Apr 23, 2014 1:42pm | StereoGum
Someone on Twitter (and I wish I could remember who) pointed out a fascinating factoid recently: Every time Gucci Mane goes away to prison — something that happens way too often — one of his 1017 Brick Squad understudies blows the fuck up. First, it was OJ Da Juiceman. Then, it was Waka Flocka Flame. And most recently, after Gucci went away late last year on a weapons charge, it was Young Thug. The craggy-voiced Atlanta weirdo had signed with Gucci’s 1017 Brick Squad earlier in 2013, and he made perfect sense as a new asset in Gucci’s empire. His presence gave Brick Squad an injection of all-over-the-place freewheeling energy. And signing with Gucci gave Thug a certain focus, as well as access to the upper echelon of Atlanta rap producers. Under Gucci, Thug’s music, once dizzy and sometimes impenetrable, became frantic but focused, and those qualities helped him break through on big songs like “Stoner” and “Danny Glover.” But since Thug and Gucci both move in mystery, it’s hard to say where they are with each other now, or when they might’ve made the new tape Young Thugga Mane La Flare. Gucci embraces and rejects collaborators all the time, often set off by completely innocuous offenses. Thug signed with another label immediately after Gucci went to prison, plunging himself into legal limbo with both labels. And since Gucci’s been locked up for months, the tracks on the tape have to date back ...
Touche Amore announce tour w/ Tigers Jaw & Dads (dates)
Apr 23, 2014 1:42pm | Brooklyn Vegan
LA post-hardcore rippers Touche Amore have been loving the road lately. They've already hit NYC on two tours in the past year in support of 2013's great Is Survived By (we caught them at SXSW too), and they've announced yet another string of North American dates from late June through the end of July with Tigers Jaw and Dads. There's no NYC date for this one, but they'll hit Long Island's Revolution Bar & Music Hall on July 15 and they have the day off before that, so hopefully they'll add something in NYC? Tickets for the Long Island show go on sale Friday (4/25) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
You can also catch Tigers Jaw in NYC not long before that when their tour with Pity Sex hits Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 18. Tickets for that show are still available.
All Touche Amore dates, including The Fest, are listed with a recent full-set live video from Tampa, below...
