Tobacco Thinks Nickelodeon Ripped Off His Song, But Doesnt Really Care
Aug 20, 2014 1:46pm | StereoGum

This is a weird one, so buckle up. It would appear that a promotional video for Nickelodeon’s Animation Studio ripped off a song by Black Moth Super Rainbow member and electronic producer Tobacco. And Tobacco has acknowledged that it does seem like a rip but he doesn’t care. Got it so far? If you take a moment to follow me down the rabbit hole, however, you’ll witness one of the grandest clusterfucks of re-appropriation I’ve come across in a long while. Ready? First, listen to Tobacco’s “Creepy Phone Calls” (off his second album, Maniac Meat):


Stream Rusties New Album, Green Language, Via An Interactive Video Game
Aug 20, 2014 1:45pm | CMJ

Scottish producer and electronic prodigy Rustie is due to release his second album, Green Language, on August 26 via Warp. We’ve already heard the euphoric single Raptor and the Danny Brown banger Attak. Now, courtesy of Warp and Hunter Loftis, fans can stream the entire album.

The catch (or bonus): in order to stream the whole thing, you have to play an online, interactive video game. Each level unlocks one of the album’s thirteen songs, and upon beating the game the player is rewarded with a full stream. Warp recommends Chrome or Safari for optimal gaming, and the controls (arrow keys to move and space bar to jump) are pretty intuitive. Check out the game (or at least hear the album’s first track, Workship, which plays automatically) here, and scope the full tracklist for Green Language below.

Tracklist For Green Language:
01. Workship
02. A Glimpse
03. Raptor
04. Paradise Stone

The 25 Most Popular Clubs, according to Billboard
Aug 20, 2014 1:38pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Billboard has released its list of the 25 most popular clubs in the United States, based on total attendance between May 1st, 2013 – April 30th, 2014. Coming in at No. 1? Of all places, the House of Blues in Orlando, Florida, which drew nearly 350,000 attendees in the last year. House of Blues’ Boston location follows close behind with a total attendance of 323,000, and Washington, DC’s iconic 9:30 Club takes third place after drawing 269,000. Check out the full top 25 list below.

Interestingly enough, Billboard also released a list of the top 5 must-play clubs for up-and-coming bands, and only one of the top-grossing venues (9:30 Club) made the cut. The other four — New York’s Bowery Ballroom, New York’s Mercury Lounge, Chicago’s Metro, and Los Angeles’ Troubadour — all are much smaller venues in comparison.

Top 25 Most Popular Clubs:
01. House of Blues — Orlando, FL (339,470 attendance)
02. House of Blues — Boston, MA (322,755)
03. 9:30 Club — Washington, DC (268,727)
04. House of Blues — Dallas, TX (222,988)
05. House of Blues — Chicago, IL (211,446)
06. House of Blues — Houston, TX (209,799)
07. House of Blues — Anaheim, TX (192,424)
08. The Tabernacle — Atlanta, GA (185,769)

S Brunch
Aug 20, 2014 1:34pm | StereoGum

The first song from Jenn Ghetto’s latest S album Cool Choices, “Vampires,” presented a shimmering uptempo take on melancholia. It was fantastic, as was Swim Good’s transformative remix. Now comes “Brunch,” another Cool Choices track that operates in the same emotional and sonic space as “Vampires” with the added bonus of immediately striking lyrics about coping with a nasty breakup. Ghetto’s fragile yet confident songwriting reminds me of Elliott Smith, and Chris Walla’s production is both recognizable and welcome. The Pacific Northwest has always been so good at making despondent longing sound so impossibly romantic, and that tradition continues here. Listen below.


Deaf Wishs St. Vincents Single To Be Released On Sub Pop
Aug 20, 2014 1:25pm | CMJ

Deaf Wish’s St. Vincent’s is a heavy guitar-punk jam for the ages. The tune has the ferocious attitude of The Pretenders’s Precious, coupled with the blistering bombast of Screaming Females at their loudest. Sub Pop has just announced their plans to release St. Vincent’s, along with three other tunes, via 7-inch vinyl LP and digital download on October 6 in the U.K. and October 7 in the U.S. Although the fiery Melbourne punk band has three LPs under its belt, this 7-inch will mark their first of (hopefully many) releases in the U.S. The band will also bring their famously chaotic live show to North America in the fall, immediately after a hometown blowout at Melbourne’s John Curtin Hotel. Check out the tune and the band’s fall tour dates below.

Tour Dates For Deaf Wish:
09/13 – Melbourne, AU – John Curtin Hotel
09/20 – Columbus, OH – Ruby Tuesday
09/21 – Detroit, MI – PJs Lagerhouse
09/22 – Cleveland, OH – Now Thats Class
09/23 – Kalamazoo, MI – Louies
09/24 – Chicago, IL – Empty Bottle
09/25 – St. Louis, MO – CBGB
09/26 – Memphis, TN – Gonerfest
09/27 – Atlanta, GA – The Earl
09/28 – New Orleans, LA – Siberia

Gucci Mane sentenced to over three years in prison
Aug 20, 2014 1:20pm | Fact Magazine

Troubled Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane was sentenced to 39 months in prison today.

The rapper was arrested last fall and pulled up on a number of infractions – marijuana possession, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon, and today he was sentenced over the firearms charge. Since he’s been languishing in jail for the last 11 months, he’ll only actually have to serve another 28, but that will be followed by a three year period of probation.

Interestingly, Gucci has filed a request to be shuttled to a West Coast prison, saying he wants to cut ties with negative influences in Atlanta and undergo treatment for his drug addiction. If you remember, it’s an addiction that supposedly led to a very public meltdown last year.

Even though he’s been behind bars, it hasn’t prevented Gucci from machinegunning a series of patchy mixtapes this year, and there are plenty more to come, including his eagerly-awaited collaboration with Chicago driller Chief Keef. [via Complex]

Hooray For Earths Say Enough music video has an afternoons worth of bad CGI puppet sex
Aug 20, 2014 1:17pm | Chart Attack

Apparently it is possible to conjure a stirring romance from pirated Playstation 1 caliber visuals. At least that's what Hooray For Earth has managed in their "Say Enough" clip. Over the stadium-sized synth rock track, the memory of happier times becomes too strong to bear for one recently finished couple, but their path back to each other is blocked by abusive boyfriends, sexy barflys, and long load times. Turns out the biggest memory card of the heart.

Hooray For Earth's new album Racy is out now via Dovecote.

Injured Dev Hynes Discusses Lollapalooza Assault, Ferguson At SummerStage
Aug 20, 2014 1:11pm | StereoGum

Blood Orange singer Dev Hynes and his girlfriend Samantha Urbani (formerly of Friends) were assaulted by security guards after their set at Lollapalooza several weeks ago, during which they spoke about racism and police brutality and wore homemade shirts with the words “Stop Police Brutality” and the names of victims emblazoned on them. On Saturday, Blood Orange played a free SummerStage show in Central Park, where, onstage and in an interview with Okayplayer, he again spoke out against racism and “this fucking police state we’re all starting to live in,” addressing both his own shocking assault and the recent tragedy in Ferguson:


Frontier Ruckus @ Mercury Lounge: August 19, 2014
Aug 20, 2014 1:05pm | CMJ

Last night, Michigans Frontier Ruckus brought their unique brand of sprawling, literary Americana to Manhattans Mercury Lounge. Taking the stage at 11 p.m. on a Tuesday night, the band played to a modest crowd of close friends and die-hard fans. For an hour, they treated the crowd to a sampling of songs taken from their three existing LPs as well as their upcoming fourth, and transported us from New York City to a larger, intangible, folktale version of rural and/or suburban America.

The band, whose instrumentation features banjo, horns and musical saw, has always had a sound and thematic coherence all their own. Their first two records, The Orion Songbook and Deadmalls & Nightfalls, are piercingly sincere portraits of romance and youth, ripe with close harmonies and meditations on complicated, tender love. The bands preoccupation with this side of Americana went from silver screen to IMAX on 2013s staggering double-LP Eternity Of Dimming, which veritably overflows with images of middle-class American youth in the 1990s. Songwriter and singer Matthew Milia obsesses over his childhood milieu, treating junk drawers, garage sales, mini-van floors and the parking lot behind the 7-Eleven like hallowed ground. On Eternity Of Dimming, the band dissects and explodes childhood memories, treading and retreading the lines that bleed when the darkness of adulthood infringes upon the brightness of childhood.

Song : Hiss Golden Messenger : Mahogany Dread
Aug 20, 2014 1:03pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

So far the M.C. Taylor-lead project Hiss Golden Messenger are two for two with “Saturday’s Song” and this new one “Mahogany Dread” from their upcoming Lateness of Dancers LP (out September 9th via Merge). Music is a funny thing. When you think you have heard this type of music over and over, there is always someone that comes around and does it in a way that sounds both throwback and fresh at the same time. The song is just a well-executed sprawling folk-rock track ideal for that next road trip. Listen below.
