Comedic success doesnt always look so funny in the new trailer for Dont Think Twice watch
May 24, 2016 3:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Not to be confused with anything Bob Dylan-related, Don’t Think Twice actually veers away from the songwriter’s affirmation that “It’s alright.” Because as most 20-30-somethings pursuing passion rather than a paycheck know, that’s not always the case. Director and lead actor Mike Birbiglia certainly does.

In his latest directorial effort, Don’t Think Twice chronicles the comedic pitfalls of being in an improv troupe that’s looking for success à la Saturday Night Live. The film’s official trailer, which surfaced today, gives us a peek into how the characters’ keep their audience, and themselves, continuously entertained (even during the most mundane moments, like offering samples of pita chips to uninterested customers). More importantly, it exposes a pretty harsh truth behind all the jokes and humorous stunts: The climb to comedic success doesn’t always look so funny.

Watch it above.

In addition to Birbiglia, Don’t Think Twice stars Keegan Michael-Key Gillian Jacobs, Tami Sagher, Chris Gethard, and Kate Micucci. The film premiered at SXSW back in March, but is finally due to hits theaters on July 22nd via independent company Film Arcade.

The X-Files Gillian Anderson wants to be the next James Bond
May 24, 2016 3:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Another actor has joined the race to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond. Sorry, did we say actor? Make that actress. The X-Files star Gillian Anderson has taken an internet rumor to heart and decided she wants to be the next 007.

An unknown fan made a poster of Anderson standing tall as James Jane Bond, and Anderson couldn’t resist. “It’s Bond. Jane Bond,” she tweeted. “Thanks for all the votes!”

It's Bond. Jane Bond.
Thanks for all the votes! (And sorry, don't know who made poster but I love it!) #NextBond pic.twitter.com/f8GC4ZuFgL

— Gillian Anderson (@GillianA) May 21, 2016

However, Anderson admitted in a Tumblr Q&A that this is nothing but a fantasy at the moment. “Well, it’s not news, it’s a fantasy,” she said in response to fan’s question about the Bond rumor. “Someone made a fabulous poster and it started an intriguing conversation. Will it ever happen in the real world? More than probably not.” Still, she did say that the idea of her being the next Bond was the best rumor she’d ever heard about herself.

The Kills share new song/video for Siberian Nights watch
May 24, 2016 3:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

On Monday, The Kills teased their new single “Siberian Nights” with a 15-second preview of its corresponding music video, captioned “TOMORROW.” As promised, the song and its full-length clip have been revealed today.

The hook of “Siberian Nights” shares similarities to the duo’s previous single, “Doing It To Death”, but the “Ooh Ooh Oohs” are instead replaced with “Da Da Doos” and supported by steady drumming that serves as the skeletal framework of the song. The band’s Jamie Hince can be heard singing “I got a love” for everyone from “the tyrants in a rut” to “the cruel youth.” However, he repeatedly questions a lack of reciprocal affections: “Wont you tell me please?/ Why they got no love for me?”

As for the video, director/actor Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar, Ted) captures captures beautiful imagery despite primarily filming amongst shadows. Its narrator appears to operate in the same way, unawares and stumbling in the dark when it comes to matters of the heart.

In a message on the band’s Facebook page, The Kills write:

“Our dear friend Giovanni Ribisi followed his wonderful imagination and set out to the salt flats, capturing for us, a wild dream scene of run run run, snarling teeth and beautiful eyes. It’s a weird and wonderful, ...

What we learned from Chance the Rappers interview with Zane Lowe
May 24, 2016 3:18pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Chance the Rapper appeared on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio program on Tuesday. Over the course of their hour-long discussion, they discussed the making of Chance’s excellent new mixtape, Coloring Book, his ongoing collaborations with Kanye West, as well as his decision to not sign to a record label.

— On “All We Got”, the opening track to Coloring Book, the lyric “music is all we got” came from Kanye. The beat was originally written for Grace Weber, but he was able to convince Donnie Trumpet and Nate Fox to give him the song.

— Francis and the Lights, who contributed to “All We Got” and “Summer Friends”, also brought the prismizer sound to Kanye and Frank Ocean’s new album. “He sings or takes a vocal, and he builds chordal sound around. It sounds like 15 cyborgs all signing in autotune.”

— Chance will kick off a world tour in support of Coloring Book beginning in September with plans to hit Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond.

— His long-in-the-works mixtape with Childish Gambino could be released before year’s end.

— Big Sean, Jeremih, and J. Cole all recorded music for Coloring Book, but their contributions were not cleared by the artists’ various record labels. “It will never happen like that,” Chance said of the unclea...

Graphic designer turns Star Wars Episode IV into one long infographic
May 24, 2016 2:58pm | Cosequence Of Sound

“The Internet: You will never find a more vibrant hive of obsession and ingenuity. We must be cautious.”

If the last couple of years didn’t clue you in, there’s no limit to Star Wars fanaticism. It used to be that anyone who owned every Kenner figure was considered at least a demigod, but now that’s all padawan stuff. These days, you need to go the extra 12 parsecs to turn anyone’s heads.

Our latest Jedi Knight is Zurich illustrator and graphic novelist Martin Panchaud, who curiously took it upon himself to adapt 1977’s Star Wars into one long infographic. How long? Well, 123 meters long; we’re talking 1024 x 465152 px / 27 x 12307 cm / 10.6 x 4845.3-inch long. Yeah, that long.

“This long ribbon reminds [me of] the ancient Chinese script rolls that had to be rolled in and rolled out simultaneously in order to be read,” he writes on his website. “I like this stretch between ages, cultures, and technologies. However, [the] internet likes short stories and summaries, quickly understandable content. With my work, I aimed to create a contrast to that.”

The Force is strong with this one. Using Adobe Illustrator, Panchaud offers a mostly bird’s eye view of the entire adventure, capturing every piece of dialogue, every ship, every character, and even every sound effect. The end result is something you’ll likel...


Shura premieres pleading new song Whats It Gonna Be? listen
May 24, 2016 2:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Nothing’s Real is the forthcoming debut album from Shura, due out on July 8th via Polydor. The CoSigned songwriter’s teased the release thus far with a string of stellar singles in 2Shy, Touch, Indecision, and “White Light”. She returns this week with another solid offering in “What’s It Gonna Be?”.

Sentimental yet body-moving pop is Shura’s forte, and it shows up in full force here. “If you let me down, let me down slow,” she pleads, her voice a dead ringer for ’80s-era melancholic Madonna. The song has zero in common with Busta Rhymes and Janet Jackson’s 1999 track of the same name, though it’s worth noting Shura is a *big* Janet fan.

“It’s about fancying someone and maybe having a kind of connection and then realizing that it’s probably not going to happen,” Shura told BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac. Stream it below.

You missed a lot of music this long weekend
May 24, 2016 2:42pm | Chart Attack
Now Hear This is a daily dive into the standout songs of the day. Today, fuck it, here's 12 things.

If you're anything like me, you spent your long weekend as far away from your day job as possible. For me, that meant detaching from the bountiful stream of new music and just listening to whatever I heard other people blasting while day-drinking in the park (mostly Chance and Drake). And so here I am today, faced with a huge pile of new and great music (including, hey, some Chance and Drake). Rather than horde it, here's the good stuff.

YG ft. Drake and Kamaiyah, "Why You Always Hatin'"

YouTube Video

YG debuted the track, which features Oakland rapper Kamaiyah and perhaps the world's leading scholar on haters, Drake (just follow a Raps-Cavs game on Twitter and wait for the camera to catch him courtside), on the professor's own OVOSOUND Radio. - Chris Hampton

YG's Still Krazy is out in June on Def Jam.

Chance The Rapper, "Waves" + "Nina Chop" (Kanye West demos)

Kanye West has been "fixing" songs from The Life of Pablo since it came out, so it's not like we haven't been able to see his process, but this Beats1 interview with Chance The Rapper is a whole new peek behind the curtain. Starting at 20:45, Chance plays his original demos for "Waves" and "Nina Chop" (which became "Famous") and talks a...


Revocation announce 'Great is Our Sin,' share first track "Communion"
May 24, 2016 2:41pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Boston tech-death monsters Revocation have announced a new album and shared the first song from that album. Great is Our Sin drops on July 22 via Metal Blade, and the new song is called "Communion." It's the kind of turn-on-a-dime, hyper-precise-but-still-groovy death metal that these guys have essentially perfected at this point. Riffs, time signatures -- they fly by with abandon.
