Help Weezers Career By Choosing Their New Single
Oct 21, 2014 3:25pm | StereoGum
Weezer’s Everything Will Be Alright In The End has been received as a return to form here and elsewhere. But the album didn’t exactly set the charts on fire, debuting at #5 with 34,000 in first-week sales, and lead single “Back To The Shack,” despite charting at #4 on the Rock Airplay chart and #5 on Mainstream Rock Songs chart, isn’t quite a world-beating smash. So I guess it’s not that crazy that the band posted a survey on Facebook today asking fans to help them choose their next single. Three options are presented: “Ain’t Got Nobody,” “Da Vinci,” and the Bethany Cosentino duet “Go Away.” Humorously, the question originally read, “How much do you think each of these 3 songs would help Weezer’s career if released as the next single?” It has since been altered to read, “How much do you think each of these 3 songs would help Weezer long-term, if released as the next single?” Participate in the survey here.
Cult Of Fire Vltava
Oct 21, 2014 3:22pm | StereoGum
Prague’s Cult Of Fire were responsible for one of 2013′s best metal albums, (gonna have to check the pronunciation on that one): a swirling, immersive black metal record that looked to India for its inspiration, both musical and lyrical. The band is back this year with a two-song EP, tvrtá Symfonie Ohn (translated: “The Fourth Symphony Of Fire”), which returns them to their own roots: The record is dedicated to Czech composer Bedich Smetana, as well as the Czech rivers Vltava and Slovak Váh. “Vltava” is the title of the new EP’s A-side, and while the Indian elements have been replaced by Central European motifs — and the vocals are altogether absent — it showcases the same fierce musicianship, vitality, and commitment as found on the band’s last LP. Once again, it’s a bizarre and intoxicating experience. Listen.
50 Cent, Sufjan Stevens Playing Cyndi Laupers Home For The Holidays Benefit
Oct 21, 2014 3:18pm | StereoGum
Sufjan Stevens has presumably been dreaming of playing a show with 50 Cent ever since he picked out that outfit for Sisyphus’ “Booty Call” video. Later this year, he’ll get his chance. It’s for a good call, too. Both Sufjan and 50 are on the bill at Cyndi Lauper’s Home For The Holidays benefit, which goes down 12/6 at New York’s Beacon Theatre and which raises awareness of LGBT youth homelessness. The diverse-to-the-point-of-insanity lineup also features Salt-N-Pepa, the Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines, Patty Griffith, Emily West, STRFKR, Liv Warfield, and The Today Show’s Hoda Kotb. Rosie O’Donnell and Laverne Cox will co-host. You will find all relevant info here.
Puddles Pity Party playing Joes Pub tonight & other dates

Puddles Pity Party at Webster Hall 2013 (more
by Chris La Putt)
How do you feel about clowns? They aren't so much the stuff of kids entertainment anymore, more likely the stuff of nightmares. One clown that's in the "misunderstood monster" department is Puddles Pity Party, a 6'8" clown dressed up as a modern-day Pagliaccio, both terrifying and possessed with a sonorous voice. ("The Sad Clown with the Golden Voice.") Those pipes are used on an array of covers, from Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" to Lorde's "Royals." Videos of both are below.
We caught Puddles when he was part of Eels' opening lineup last year and he's back in NYC, playing two back-to-back sets at Joe's Pub tonight (10/21) -- 9:30 is sold out, but tickets to the 11:30 PM show are still available.
Puddles has some other dates this month and all are listed, along with videos, below...

Chance the Rapper to drop free album this year; working with Frank Ocean, Migos, more
Oct 21, 2014 3:07pm | Fact Magazine
The Chicago rapper plans a major project with his Social Experiment band.
Since releasing Acid Rap last year, Chance the Rapper has been relatively quiet, aside from some guest spots and one-off tracks co-credited to his band, the Social Experiment and it turns out the latter is a clue of what’s to come.
Chance and the Social Experiment have announced plans for a series of projects to released over the coming months. First up is Surf, an album that features trumpet player Nico “Donnie Trumpet” Segal and will be released for free this year.
In addition, Frank Ocean, Rick Rubin, Migos, J. Cole, Emily King and more have been in the studio with the band. “There’s been a lot of just people in the studio watching us work almost like a house band. People come in just to watch us jam out,” he tells Billboard.
Chance and company are currently working on a live show inspired in part by the Lion King musical. Listen to the latest Social Experiment dispatch ‘Know Betta Blues’ below.
Radio Moscow expand tour, headlining dates after tour with Pentagram (whose NYC show w/ Blood Ceremony is soon)

Radio Moscow at Bowery Ballroom in 2012 (more by Greg
As discussed, Iowa psychedelic band Radio Moscow are going on a tour with doom-metal institution Pentagram, though they're not on the NYC stop which happens November 1 at Gramercy Theatre with Blood Ceremony, Bang and Kings Destroy (tickets). Instead, Radio Moscow will be in California that day for Day of the Shred with Red Fang, Weedeater, Windhand, Bongripper, ASG, Danava and more; but they've since added their own NYC show happening right after the Pentagram tour.
The riffers will team up with Black Wail and more TBA for a NYC gig on November 4 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Updated dates are listed below.
Radio Moscow's newest album, Magical Dirt, came out earlier this year. Check out a stream of its track, "Death of a Queen," with the list of tour dates, below...

Mitski I Will
Oct 21, 2014 2:39pm | StereoGum
All of the songs we’ve heard so far from Mitski’s forthcoming full-length have been killer: There’s the wistful dream-pop of “First Love/Late Spring,” the crunchy pummel of “Townie,” and what’s perhaps my favorite song of the year so far, the guttural and vulnerable “I Don’t Smoke.” Our next taste of Bury Me At Makeout Creek is “I Will” and it’s a testament to Mitski’s vast talent as a songwriter that it sounds nothing like the tracks that came before it, yet still retains her individuality and unique perspective. Mitski lays her emotions on the table, satisfied but still wanting — “stay with me, hold my hand/there’s no need to be brave,” she sings as the music bellows behind her. It’s another stunner, and you can listen below.
Chief Keef Says Hes Been Dropped By Interscope
Oct 21, 2014 2:29pm | StereoGum
Chief Keef says he has been dropped by Interscope. The embattled Chicago rapper confirmed his departure from the label in a series of tweets today. “100% of everything goes to me now,” he wrote. “Jimmy [Iovine] it was cool splitting it with U But u gave yo spot up!”
Jerome LOL All That I Am (Feat. Sara Z)
Oct 21, 2014 2:10pm | StereoGum
The L.A. producer Jerome LOL is half of the techno duo DJ Dodger Stadium, and their swooping, gorgeously produced Friend Of Mine is probably my favorite dance album of the year. Jerome also makes music on his own, though, and he’s contributed a new track called “All That I Am” to Five Years Of Friends Of Friends, an new double-CD compilation that celebrates the anniversary of the L.A. label Friends Of Friends. Shlohmo, Tomas Barfod, and Daedelus also have tracks on the comp, and people like Nicolas Jaar, Ryan Hemsworth, and Star Slinger contribute remixes. “All That I Am” is a swelling, melodic techno track with a great diva vocal from Jerome’s frequent collaborator Sara Z. Listen to it below.
Wray released an LP, playing CMJ w/ a member of Jurassic 5 and more (dates & videos)
Oct 21, 2014 2:09pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
Like many indie bands, the members of Birmingham, AL's Wray have roots in punk, but the only thing sound-wise that's really carried over from that to this band is a love of distortion. Wray's self-titled debut LP came out earlier this year via Communicationg Vessels and it's mostly shoegazy guitars over krautrock rhythms. You can stream the album in full on RDIO and watch the videos for two tracks below.
The band only has two shows announced at the moment. One is their label's CMJ showcase happening Wednesday (10/22) at Lit Lounge with Sanders Bohlke, The Champions of Truth (Shaheed and DJ Supreme w/Akil The MC of Jurassic 5), The Dirty Lungs and The Green Seed. That's $10 at the door or free if you have a badge. Their only other show is in their hometown this November with The Octopus Project.
All dates are listed, with the videos, below...

Save the Toronto rave forum The Vault with this crowdfunding campaign
Oct 21, 2014 2:06pm | Chart Attack
The Vault (link now dead) was a forum started during the glory days of Toronto's rave scene by Chris Smart, and was "an amazing resource of flyers, MP3s and general flashbackery" according to James Applegath, co-creator of Toronto's rave newsletter-turned-archive The Communic8r. Recently, The Vault has been taken down due to unpaid hosting fees, and will be totally erased from its servers on November 1. In response Applegath has started a crowdfunding campaign with GoFundMe to raise the $500 needed to restore The Vault and move it to The Communic8r.
But is it worth the money? A quick Google search reveals a list of similar websites (though many of the links are dead). I wondered if The Vault offers anything other sites don't, so I asked Applegath to justify for an outsider why the forum deserves to be saved. Given how Toronto dance culture was once recognized around the world, it's not surprising that The Vault's collection has been visited by at least one very important figure in jungle:
Song : Ghost Loft : Be Easy
Oct 21, 2014 2:02pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
Danny Choi, aka Ghost Loft, was the creator of one of our favorite tracks last year with “So High”. The elusive producer is back after a break letting us know that not everything is a big deal and, sometimes, you just need to “Be Easy”. The song has that shadowy feel to like his previous songs, but hits with a little more urgency. Hopefully, this signals a proper EP or LP from him in the coming months. You can watch the video or stream the song by itself below.
Stream Rancid Honor Is All We Know
Oct 21, 2014 1:48pm | StereoGum
Berkeley punk rock lifers Rancid, my favorite band of all time, haven’t released an album since the slept-on Let The Dominoes Fall in 2008. That changes next Tuesday. The band has a new one called Honor Is All We Know loaded up and ready to go, and we’ve posted its songs “Face Up” and “Already Dead,” as well as a video of them playing three of the album’s tracks. On first listen, the new LP isn’t quite as frenzied and anthemic as the stuff they were making two decades ago, but that only seems biologically sensible. And they’re still doing an amazing job packing giddy, beyond-catchy hooks into fast, assaultive punk rock pummels. They still sound happy to be alive, and they are incapable of making a bad album. Right now, you can stream the whole thing at iTunes Radio.
Honor Is All We Know is out 10/17 on Epitaph.

Fairly new Brooklyn venue Radio Bushwick had a busy CMJ week planned until yesterday something caused all their shows to be moved/canceled.

Todd Terje makes a used car commercial in his video for Delorean Dynamite watch
Oct 21, 2014 1:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound
After notable appearances in the Back To The Future series, the DeLorean DMC-12 became one of several go-to images for just how wacky and out-of-whack the ’80s truly were. Todd Terje was no doubt touched by the vehicle’s storied legacy, having paid sonic tribute in his own way with the single “Delorean Dynamite”, from his debut full-length, It’s Album Time. Now, in the accompanying video, Terje’s offering fans a chance to own an actual piece of history by purchasing their very own DeLorean.
Directed by Espen Friberg, the clip follows the chrome cruiser in action, hypnotizing potential buyers with its sleek design and impeccable handling. According to the car’s sale page, it’s going for 279,000 Norwegian krone, or roughly $43,000 US, which may or may not be a steal considering the car only has around 14,000 miles on it. If you’re interested in building your own time machine, or just cruising the neighborhood, contact Frank, the seller, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a statement, Frank described the power of the DeLorean:
