Run the Jewels giving away their new LP for free (download)
Oct 24, 2014 9:04am | Brooklyn Vegan

Killer Mike and El-P's new Run the Jewels album RTJ2 comes out next week (10/28) via Mass Appeal, but apparently it leaked ahead of time. El-P and Killer Mike found about it, but instead of being bad sports, they each tweeted links to a free download of the album themselves. You can grab it HERE.

The duo are also working with Zola Jesus, Just Blaze, Baauer, Portishead's Geoff Barrow, the Alchemist, Boots, Dan the Automator and more to make a cat-themed remix album called Meow the Jewels. If you're a cat, you can audition to be part of it.

Watch Gerard Way Cover Sleater-Kinneys I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone At CMJ
Oct 24, 2014 8:58am | StereoGum

The entire universe, it seems, is ridiculously amped about the coming Sleater-Kinney reunion, and former glam-emo stars are no exception. Gerard Way, the onetime My Chemical Romance frontman who just launched a solo career with his Britpop-inspired album Hesitant Alien, played a CMJ show at New York’s Webster Hall last night. During his set, he covered Sleater-Kinney’s “I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone,” the most anthemic song on their feverish 1996 album Call The Doctor. He really yelled the hell out of it, too, which is the only way to do it. (He’d actually done it in New Jersey the night before, too; maybe it’s just going to be a part of his setlist now.) Watch a fan-made video of the performance below.

FULL SCREEN: Panda Bear meets a recurring dream, Scott Walker + Sunn O)))s domestic distress
Oct 24, 2014 8:57am | Chart Attack
Full Screen collects all of the remarkable videos we've seen in the last 24 hours. 

Panda Bear, "Mr Noah"

"Mr Noah" goes. Panda Bear's played this song both times I've seen him live this year, and even as his other melodies rang throughout the venue, his masterful harmonious repetition - those "eh eh ehs!" - stood out. And today we learn it's not even on his upcoming new album Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, but from a standalone EP. He's sneakily raised the bar for himself, especially now that the fantastic studio version is available in this also-amazing video, directed by AB/CD/CD. It seems to take place in a neighbourhood's recurring dream, with a good dog as its barking alderman. I think a loop crafter like Noah Lennox will appreciate the repeating views of skewed domestic scenes, like we're half woken up from the extended REM sleep of "Let Forever Be"'s elaborate theatre. The camera is especially remarkable; it's so fluid it's enough to make Gaspar Noé nauseous.

Panda Bear's new album Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is out January 13 via Domino. Pre-order it here and you can get the Mr Noah EP right now, with three tracks not on the new record.

Scott Walker + Sunn O))), "Brando"

I'm still trying to decipher Scott Walker's "Epizootics!" music video, and I'll probably be sitting on Gisèle Vienne's "Brando" video for some tim...

The third night of the Sofar Sounds CMJ Music Marathon series took place last night at yet another secret living room somewhere in this big city. The night featured sets from Morningsiders, Beast Coast (not Pro Era), Iska Dhaaf and Frances Cone.

Drake surprised SOB's last night, Dev Hynes played with Kindness, Mac DeMarco DJ'd & more (it's CMJ)
Oct 24, 2014 8:43am | Brooklyn Vegan

Drake @ SOB's (via)

Though Drake didn't make an appearance with his friend iLoveMakonnen at SOB's on Tuesday (maybe he could have broke up the fight), he did show up last night at the same club to make a CMJ guest appearance with his other friend Partynextdoor. Video below.

iLoveMakonnen plays CMJ again at Fader Fort.

Speaking of not-so surprising CMJ guest appearances and Fader Fort, Dev Hynes joined his friend and collaborator Kindness on stage at Fader Fort late last night. Rapper DeJ Loaf (who brought out Remy Ma and her mom at Santos Tuesday) also joined rappers Rae Sremmurd (who played SOB's Tuesday before iLoveMakonnen who also joined Rae Sremmurd at their show).

Last night was also the late Joey Bada$$ and Vince Staples show at Highline Ballroomm, but more about that one later.

Mac DeMarco, who DJs again at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday night, showed up to DJ the Captured Tracks day party at Baby's All Right yesterday, after a DJ set by PP's Meredith Graves.

Noel Gallagher joins Johnny Marr and covers Iggy Pops Lust For Life and The Smiths How Soon Is Now?
Oct 24, 2014 8:34am | Cosequence Of Sound

By now, it’s safe to assume that we may never see those hotly-anticipated reunions from The Smiths and Oasis. How’s this for a consolation prize, though: members of both bands coming together as some two-headed beast of Britpop majesty? That’s what happened Thursday evening, as Noel Gallagher joined Johnny Marr during for an encore performance at London’s O2 Brixton Academy.

Both The Smiths and Oasis may be familiar with interpersonal drama, but Marr and Gallagher are practically BFFs. “I’d like to introduce someone who has been a friend of mine for 20 years,” Marr told the crowd beforehand. “One of the greatest songwriters from this country. He’s a good man, I think he’s got a big future ahead of him. Mr. Noel Gallagher.” From there, the duo launched into a spirited cover of Iggy Pop’s “Lust For Life” and straight into an equally inspired rendition of The Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now?” The pair ended everything with a rather sincere embrace, proving that not everybody in iconic British bands hates each other.

Check out fan-shot footage of both performances below.

“Lust For Life”:

“How Soon Is Now?”:

The duo also recently spent time together in the studio for Gallagher’s new album as High Flying Birds. “The Ballad Of Mighty” appears on Chasing Yeste...


Watch Taylor Swift Shut Down Hollywood Boulevard On Kimmel
Oct 24, 2014 8:33am | StereoGum

Every once in a long while, Jimmy Kimmel Live gets a musical guest too big for its outdoor festival stage, and it has to throw up a stage in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard and wreck Los Angeles traffic for the day. That happened last night. Taylor Swift’s pop monolith 1989 looms ever closer, and she brought a massive backing band and a full complement of dancers with her to perform the early singles “Shake It Off” (complete with awkward choreography) and the great “Out Of The Woods.” She also did an interview on the show, telling a story about how Kimmel’s music booker kicked her out of the studio when she tried to score a blind audition 10 years ago. Watch the performances and the interview below.

video premiere: Vesuvio Solo Avion
Oct 24, 2014 8:30am | Gorilla Vs Bear

Our late night go-to jam these days (when not listening to pom pom or PBVSGR, of course) has been Favors, the stellar new cassette release from former TOPS bassist Thom Gillies and Cameron MacLean, aka Vesuvio Solo. The tape’s standout track — a gloriously warped and catchy sophisti-pop gem called “Avion” that’s become one of our most played songs of the year in a matter of weeks — gets a hazy video that only enhances the jam’s seedy, late night vibes:

Favors, which features a supporting cast of Montreal all-stars (Jane Penny on flute!), is out now on Banko Gotiti in North America and on Atelier Ciseaux everywhere else. Vesuvio Solo plays a couple of shows at CMJ this weekend; check those dates, and listen to Favors in its entirety, after the jump…


Vesuvio Solo @ CMJ 2014:

Friday 10/24 2:00 AM – Arlene’s Grocery – M for Montreal Showcase
Sunday 10/26 2:30 PM – Babycastles – Cardinal PR Showcase


Tinder for parties has arrived
Oct 24, 2014 8:26am | Fact Magazine

Mooching around on a Saturday night with no particular place to go?

Or perhaps you fancy having an impromptu house party with a bunch of total strangers? There’s an app for that!

KickOn is an “event discovery app” that its inventors have billed as “Tinder for parties”, allowing you to search for goings-on in your area and invite yourself along. Joining a party makes you visible to the host, who vets your profile before sending you a QR code that works as a ticket. Likewise, if your list of birthday guests is looking a bit thin, you can pop your event on the database and wait for unfamiliar faces to add themselves to the guestlist.

The team of web developers behind KickOn, who’ve obviously never woken up after a house party to find a blank wall where their TV used to be, are also building weekly rankings to find out who is the MVP that’s Most Valuable Partier in each university, state and country.

We must admit there’s something quite appealing about flicking through all the parties happening within walking distance of your house it saves you an Uber at least. And who knows, you might finally meet your neighbours.

The app launched this year in Australia and the US, and the developers are currently looking for university ambassadors to bring Kickon into campuses. [via Mixmag]

The Klaxons are splitting up. Probably.
Oct 24, 2014 8:21am | Fact Magazine

The nu-rave poster boys are splitting up. Well, probably.

In a pair of tweets posted today, the Klaxons announced that “after what’s been nearly nine bananas years we’d like to let you know that we’ve decided the upcoming dates will be our last headline tour”, though they “are still looking forward to playing Mexico, Russia and Japan next/this year”.

Presumably that means the end for the band, though there’s a chance they’re simply going to stop playing live (it seems unlikely, though).

After a series of singles that captured the imagination of British indie kids-turned-ravers in 2006 and 2007, the Klaxons won the Mercury Prize with their debut album Myths of the Near Future. The group released their third album, Love Frequencythis year.

RBMA heads to Leeds with Moodymann, George Fitzgerald, Daniel Avery and more
Oct 24, 2014 8:15am | Fact Magazine

Red Bull Music Academy are taking over Leeds’ Canal Mills on November 15.

They’ve certainly managed to piece together a jaw-dropping lineup too, with pioneering Detroit producer Kenny Dixon Jr. (aka Moodymann) taking the top spot, ready to bring a little slice of the 313 to Yorkshire.

Elsewhere, Hotflush’s George Fitzgerald, Spanish producer John Talabot, FACT fave Daniel Avery and Erol Alkan will be making sure the party doesn’t stop until well past bedtime, and Mike Jones, People Get Real, and The Sonic Emporium will be providing the residents’ touch.

John Nolan played No Sleep CMJ, made a video for his song from 'Bridge & Tunnel' film, playing soundtrack release show
Oct 24, 2014 8:10am | Brooklyn Vegan

John Nolan w/ TBS at T5 in 2012 (more by Devan Council)

The No Sleep Records CMJ showcase (which BV co-presented) went down this past Tuesday (10/21) at the Paper Box and was headlined by Taking Back Sunday/Straylight Run's John Nolan, who was joined by a backing band. He's now put out the video for his new solo single "Here Comes the Wolf" which appears on the soundtrack to Jason Michael Brescia's new independent drama/comedy Bridge And Tunnel. The video just premiered over at AltPress. You can watch it, with a clip of John playing "Existentialism on Prom Night" at the No Sleep show, below.

John will team up with The Movielife/I Am the Avalanche's Vinnie Caruana to headline the soundtrack's release show in NYC on December 29 at Webster Hall. (It doesn't specify which room, but presumably the Studio or the Marlin Room since Patti Smith is in the Grand Ballroom.) Ticket info is still TBA too. Vinnie also has a solo song on the soundtrack which you can stream below.

The Webster Hall show is the day before the two Taking Back Sunday holiday shows in NJ. Night 1 is with The Menzingers, night 2 is with Modern Baseball and tickets for both are still available.

Videos/streams below...
