10 NYC artists to see at CMJ this week
Oct 21, 2014 11:33am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher and Bill Pearis
Some may not think so, but CMJ is still a festival than brings in folks from out of town: mainly college radio programmers and jocks on mid-semester vacation. While we at BV get excited about bands from out of town (and we have a separate list for that) who are here for the fest, there are also lots of local acts we'd recommend to anyone visiting NYC. Here are 10 that are worth seeing, no matter where you live.
Clicking on the artist name takes you to their corresponding page on our NYC Show Calendar with a list of all of their upcoming NYC shows. We also made a Soundcloud playlist featuring songs from all the bands. Check them out below...

Chief Keef dropped by Interscope
Oct 21, 2014 11:30am | Fact Magazine
The controversial rapper’s stint on a major label might be over.
This certainly seems like a long time coming: Interscope Records has reportedly dropped Chief Keef. It isn’t quite surprising; Keef has had legal issues for years and his relationship with the label always seemed contentious.
Keef and his people tried to keep the label accountable [once Keef moved to Los Angeles)] but Interscope didnt seem interested in dropping a new album. Keefs team tried to have formal meetings but nothing moved, an anonymous source tells AllHipHop.
While Keef’s long-promised Bang 3 has possibly been scuttled earlier, the mostly self-produced Back from the Dead 2 is due out on Halloween. AHH reports that Keef has a new album that will “probably” be released next year through his Glory Boyz Entertainment imprint.
Until any of these releases drops, check out FACT’s rundown of Chief Keef’s weird-and-wonderful releases.
Update: Keef has confirme the news via Twitter, promising that everything will still drop on schedule.
El-P auditions cats for Run the Jewels Meow the Jewels watch
Oct 21, 2014 11:25am | Cosequence Of Sound
With a star-studded list of guest contributors and more than enough funding, rap BFFs El-P and Killer Mike (tka Run the Jewels) have just one more item to check off before beginning work on their Meow the Jewels remix album: find the cats.
Run the Jewels have chronicled the recruiting process in a new video. It mostly breaks down to El-P hilariously rapping at cats and gauging their reaction — which ranges from total disinterest to minor meowing. At one point, he quips, “This is going to be tough. They keep showing me their assholes.”
I won’t spoil whether he finds a Rum Tum Tugger (that’s a Cats reference, folks), but it does make this dog-loving writer re-think his opinion on cats as heartless fiends who will one day drive their owners to madness. Watch it below.
(Ed. Note: If El-P is looking for real talent, CoS Publisher Alex Young’s three cats — Zooey, Dorian, and Maggie — are available for recording in Chicago).
The “Meow the Jewels” Kickstarter page has already raised nearly $60,000 (of an original goal of $42,000), with six more days to go. Any additional profit will go to benefit the families of Eric Garner and Mike Brown.
Meanwhile, Run the Jewels’ sophomore album, RTJ2, arrives on October 28th via Mass Appeal. The 11-track effort eatures collaborations with Rage Against the...
Watch El-P Audition Cats For Meow The Jewels
Oct 21, 2014 11:19am | StereoGum
Meow The Jewels started as a goof, and now it’s gonna be an album. It’s still a goof, obviously — you can’t watch this trailer and expect otherwise. Same goes for the new video of El-P “auditioning” cats at Brooklyn’s BARC Animal Shelter: “No? Nothing? Do you like rap?” El asks one cat who seems unimpressed with the beats he’s hearing. Ultimately, El decides, “I don’t feel like the project’s completely come together yet.” However, even though these particular animals might not be right for this particular project, El suggests that anyone with “the wherewithal and the love” come to BARC and adopt. That’s not a goof. Watch.

Oct 21, 2014 10:59am | Brooklyn Vegan
Jerry David DeCicca has produced albums for cult folk legend Ed Askew, and is also a member of the band Black Swans, who also toured with Ed in recent years. Earlier this year, he put out his debut solo album, Understanding Land, which featured collaborations with Will Oldham (aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), The Breeders' Kelley Deal, and Bob Dylan/Neil Young collaborator Spooner Oldham. Its track "Another Bad Dream," a soft early '70s-style folk song, was just given the video treatment (dir. Matt Bauer) and that premieres in this post.
Jerry also has two shows coming up, one in Philly and the other in Brooklyn on Saturday, November 15 at Union Pool with the new project of Purehorsehair's Garrett Devoe. That's an afternoon show (3 PM) and takes place before the Holy Sons / Elisa Ambrogio show happening at the venue that night.

mp3 premiere: Blue Hawaii Get Happy / Get Happier
Oct 21, 2014 10:40am | Gorilla Vs Bear
( ) ‘Get Happy’ is a song we recorded one day in January 2014 but laid to rest as we got lost in the commotion of touring and moving to separate cities. As the year progressed, we found our live show intensify but still had all these softer recordings which would never be released. Hence we present Get Happy / Get Happier, where we explore both sides: the original demo and a fun, double-time edit made one day in August.
Montreal duo Blue Hawaii drop a beautifully conflicted new jam/mantra ahead of their CMJ dates: Listen to + download the hypnotic “Get Happy“, along with its more frantic, double-time counterpart, below. Raph and Agor bring their amazing live show to NYC this week for CMJ, check those dates after the jump…

Stream: Scott Walker and Sunn O)))s collaborative album Soused
Oct 21, 2014 10:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
This week, experimental singer-songwriter Scott Walker and drone metal outfit Sunn O))) release their collaborative album, Soused, through 4AD Records. Spotify users can also stream the LP in full below.
Walker was originally approached to appear on Sunn O)))s 2009 album Monoliths & Dimensions, but ultimately declined. However, in late 2013, he returned to Sunn O))) with new music he had written specifically for a potential collaboration. The album was recorded earlier this year and produced by Walker, his longtime collaborator/partner Peter Walsh, and musical director Mark Warman.
In an interview with The Quietus, Walker discussed how he and the band found a common ground in a general aesthetic and overall musical philosophy: “If you look at the last track on my last few albums its just me and its quite small or otherwise its a cast of thousands. They were a great compromise in that way because of the weight they have. I mean theyre so loud. When we recorded them [laughs] it was shockingly loud. Wed go into the studio and ha ha ha! We all had to wear earplugs. The first day we heard it – that brought new meaning to the phrase ‘guitar levels.'”
He also discussed how not knowing the band was actually a plus for the creative process: “Id never met them before, wed never spoken, we just turned up at the studio,” Walker said. “I thought it was the best way to do it. So ...
Prosumer to mix fabric 79
Oct 21, 2014 10:27am | Fact Magazine
The house maestro gets tapped for the next entry in the long-running series.
Achim “Prosumer” Brandenburg is no stranger around these parts, having delivered one of FACT’s best mixes in 2013. Thankfully, fabric have followed our lead, enlisting the DJ/producer for their next mix.
It was a bit like the process when packing for a gig: records that, for some reason, you think are a good fit for the club you are going to, some all-time favourites and some tracks you just discovered that you want everyone to hear,” says Prosumer. “I mixed it in my living room, using vinyl, a computer and mixer. The ducks outside my window were a hard crowd to read.”
The mix moves from “definitive house tracks of the late 80s and early 90s” to “groovier and deeper cuts from the world over,” and journey Prosumer is more than qualified to lead. fabric 79 is due out on December 8. The cover art and tracklist follow.
