Converge releasing 'You Fail Me: Redux' in June
Apr 29, 2016 3:20pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Converge have announced a reissue of their seminal 2004 album You Fail Me. The follow-up to the slightly more famous Jane Doe is every bit the masterpiece that that record is, and as is always the case with Converge, is as searingly beautiful as it is furiously ugly...
Melt Yourself Down - Last Evenings On Earth
Apr 29, 2016 3:13pm | Drowned In Sound
Oh its getting heavy Kushal Gaya sings during the opening salvo of Dot to Dot, the first track on Melt Yourself Downs new album Last Evenings on Earth. Gaya isnt joking. MYDs 2013 self-titled debut is pop music next to Last Evenings on Earth. The compositions are more complex, the music tighter and everything has an immediacy that was missing before.
Three years ago, MYD sounded like no one else. Their debut was the perfect mix of jazz time signatures, punk attitude, Afro-Beat rhythm section and electronic blips and beeps filling in the gaps as if Fela Kuti was fronting Antibalas while they ran through some punk numbers. Now theyve returned and its business as usual, and that business is making forward thinking music.
The real power of Last Evenings on Earth comes from its
intensity. Dot to Dot kicks the album off in fine form. Hip-hop
rhythms are interspersed with one of the tightest horn sections
since the J.B.s, while the while the bass rumbles on with enough
power to cause landslides along the Jurassic coast. Lead single The
God of You follows and MYDs blueprint is in full effect, except
everything has a slightly aggressive slant to it. Wareham and co
are pissed off and have something to say. This focused fervour is
refreshing and gives the album an edge over its predecessor.

Five Notable Releases of the Week (4/29/16)

This week of course includes Beyonce and Drake, but also three other albums that are very worth hearing. What was you favorite release of the week?
Erik Blood (ex The Turn-ons) released gorgeously shoegazy new LP featuring members of Shabazz Palaces & more
Apr 29, 2016 2:34pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Erik Blood these days is best known as a producer, having long worked with Shabazz Palaces and THEESatisfaction, and recently twiddled knobs for Tacocat's new album.

Premature Evaluation: Drake Views
Apr 29, 2016 2:25pm | StereoGum
It's been five years since Drake discovered the wonders and mysteries of his own ass. On 2011's Take Care, his second album, Drake managed to turn himself into a compelling and fully-formed character: an ascendant rap god, excited but freaked out by his own ...
What would Drakes Views have sounded like if it wasnt an Apple Music exclusive?
Apr 29, 2016 2:17pm | Chart Attack
Drake's Views dropped exclusively on Apple Music last night, as I'm sure anyone with an internet connection knows by now. I've been listening to it all day, but I can't help but wonder: what would Views have been like if it wasn't being used as a chess piece in the ongoing streaming wars?
As I'm sure is the case with a lot of you, I was tuned into Beats 1 Radio last night in hopes of catching Drake's interview with Zane Lowe, scheduled to air at 9 pm EST, then pushed back to 10:45. Well, 10:45 came, and still no interview. 10:55 came, and I was impatiently listening to a Rae Sremmurd song on Beats 1. Then, as Twitter was virtually exploding with anticipation, boom, the album drops.
"Alright, screw the interview," said me and everyone else. "I'm listening to Views."
CN Tower employees are tired of answering questions about Drake
But, wait... what happened to the Jay Z and Kanye West verses on "Pop Style" that dropped before the Throne-less version he played on OVO Sound Radio a few days later? What gives?
"I was just having conversation with Kanye that just landed in my lap, so I just dealt with it accordingly," sa...
Details of Princes death currently suppressed due to criminal investigation
Apr 29, 2016 2:14pm | Fact Magazine
Carver County Sheriffs Office cite criminal probe exception to public-record laws.
A week after Prince’s death, details have remained tightly under wraps and there’s a good reason for it: The rockstar’s death has now become part of a criminal probe according to a report from the Carver County Sheriffs Office, the Star Tribune.
Though neither suicide or foul play are suspected in Prince’s death, the law plainly states: “investigative data collected or created by a law enforcement agency in order to prepare a case against a person, whether known or unknown, for the commission of a crime or other offense for which the agency has primary investigative responsibility are confidential or protected nonpublic while the investigation is active.
Currently police are investigating whether an opioid overdose played a role in Prince’s death and whether the prescription pills found at Paisley Park were prescribed to Prince and where they came from. The DEA is currently not involved in the case, according to Carver County Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud, who released the criminal probe report.
It remains unclear who made the 911 call from Paisley Park or if anyone in the building spoke to investigators after Prince’s death.
Recently, sources close with Prince’s family said the singer had a long-standing addiction to the opiate painkiller...
Beyonce's new album 'Lemonade' is vital, and maybe her best yet
Apr 29, 2016 2:14pm | Brooklyn Vegan
If you're still thinking Beyonce is too pop or not authentic due to working with songwriters, you're boring and you're missing out on one of the most vital artists around. She made the jump from Singles Artist to Album Artist with 2011's retro-soul-inspired 4, she blew that album away and turned "alternative R&B" into "mainstream R&B" with 2013's self-titled LP, and it's quite possible that the newly-released Lemonade blows its predecessor away as well...
