Jessie Ware Say You Love Me (Shura Remix)
Aug 22, 2014 1:27pm | StereoGum
The British soul singer Jessie Ware is a couple of months away from releasing Tough Love, her sophomore album, but anticipation is high around these parts because the three songs we’ve heard — the title track, “Share It All,” and “Say You Love Me” — are all fucking beautiful. “Say You Love Me,” in particular, is notable because it’s the first time Ware has really departed from her usual soft reserve and swung for the big-pop fences. The London-via-Moscow singer Shura, whose own single “Just Once” is also a recent Stereogum favorite, has taken a crack at remixing “Say You Love Me,” and her version removes all the big-pop signifiers and coats Ware’s voice in sharp, icy electronic atmosphere. The song, and its sentiment, still shine through boldly. Check it out below.
Video : Pisces : Being With You
Aug 22, 2014 1:21pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
When Los Angeles’ Sarah Negahdari isn’t fronting The Happy Hollows, she has another project under the moniker Pisces. It serves as an outlet for songs that don’t necessarily fit the mold for the Hollows and has more of a psych-folk vibe about it. One of her songs “Being With You” received the visual treatment capturing the fading warmth of summer full of washed out colors and underwater fun with LA serving as the backdrop. Watch it below.
Uber Spokesman Diplo Preps Collabs With Lorde, Cat Power, Madonna, Chris Brown
Aug 22, 2014 1:19pm | StereoGum
In a cover story for Billboard, reigning pop king Diplo shared a wealth of information about upcoming collaborations, his “perpetual motion machine” lifestyle, and his sponsorship deal with Uber. Here are the goods: In 2015, he’s putting out a new Major Lazer album and launching a Major Lazer cartoon on Fox about a “Rasta superhero,” the soundtrack for which will include collabs with Cat Power and RiFF RAFF. His new project with Skrillex, Jack U, also features Canadian dance-pop singer Kiesza on a song originally intended for Usher. He put in some work on Usher’s upcoming album, and he’s been working on new music with Lorde, Chris Brown, and Ty Dolla $ign. Finally, he’s already gotten through three studio sessions with Madonna and producer Ariel Rechtshaid for Madonna’s new album. According to Diplo, three of songs they’ve been working on are “just like amazing, smashes,” while one is “super weird. Late one night in the studio we got a little bit drunk and she improvised a little hook and we made a song out of it. I think it’s going to be a breakthrough if she can manage to get everything together and get it out properly.” Basically, Diplo is now the Kevin Bacon of the pop world.
Coldplay True Love Video
Aug 22, 2014 1:12pm | StereoGum
Coldplay released their new album, Ghost Stories, earlier this year. The theme of that album was Chris Martin’s conscious uncoupling from wife Gwyneth Paltrow. Martin has apparently moved on: He’s now consciously coupled with It Girl Jennifer Lawrence. And Coldplay’s new video for Ghost Stories track “True Love” finds Martin in a notably playful mood — wearing an inflatable fat suit in which he skitches, dances with a mop, and eventually couples with another inflatable-fat-suit-wearing skinny person. Watch.
John Reis Discusses Upcoming Drive Like Jehu Reunion
Aug 22, 2014 1:05pm | StereoGum
Earlier this week, we learned the utterly badass news that San Diego post-hardcore heroes Drive Like Jehu would reunite for a free 8/31 show in their hometown’s Balboa Park, their first show back together since their 1995 breakup. It’s been so long since Jehu were together that Hot Snakes, the band that Jehu co-frontment Rick Froberg and John Reis started after that breakup, have already been through their own breakup-and-reunion cycle. And in a new interview on the Kreative Kontrol podcast, Reis, who also leads the recently-reunited Rocket From The Crypt, talks a little bit about why the band got together.
Watch: Coldplays feel-good video for True Love
Aug 22, 2014 12:59pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Appropriately, “True Love” serves as the inaugural Coldplay video in the Chris Martin-Jennifer Lawrence era. Sadly, the Oscar-nominated actress fails to make an appearance in the Jonas Åkerlund-directed video, but it’s still worth a viewing. Martin and actress Jessica Lucas star as “two-ballet loving outsiders” in this feel-good clip about inner beauty and accepting people for who they are. In typical Coldplay goofiness, these two outsiders are unique for their inflatable body size. Watch below.
“True Love” serves as the latest single off Coldplay’s latest LP, Ghost Stories.

Video : JUCE : Burning Up
Aug 22, 2014 12:34pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
London trio of Georgia, Chalin & Cherish, aka JUCE have really made a splash for us in 2014. With previous songs “Call You Out” and “(H)ours” to their credit, they recently released maybe our favorite song from them to date with the “Burning Up”. The song is sort of a tribute to their home city of London and all of the vibrant energy that happens in the summertime. The video for it shows this energy floating around the city capturing the diversity and vibrancy you encounter during the warm months. The track will appear on their upcoming release Taste The JUCE! slated for sometime in the very near future. Watch below.

Spotifys new Serendipity feature shows when two people play the same song at the same time
Aug 22, 2014 12:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Ever wonder if someone else is listening to Modest Mouses “Cowboy Dan” at the exact same time as you? Of course, you might assume the odds of that occurring, what with the billions of songs in existence, is right up there with winning the Lotto on a Leap Day. However, a cool new Spotify feature called Serendipity proves that, despite the fact that nearly 20,000 songs are started every second, such a coincidence is not only possible, but quite a common occurrence.
Unveiled today, the online map points out the locations of two people whove played the exact same song at the same time. According to Spotify and the features creator, Brooklyn digital artist Kyle McDonald, its accurate to within one-tenth of a second.
As The Verge reports, Serendipity isnt live (yet) instead its website displays real-time data recently recorded over a period of 60 minutes. Admittedly, its not exactly a practical tool in terms of measuring relevant, business-oriented statistics. Even so, Serendipity is worth exploring as its a truly fascinating and visually stunning gizmo that demonstrates the global power and reach of music.
I happened to fiddle with it this afternoon, and, while I wasnt too surprised to see a pair of Californians had bumped Maroon 5s newest single, I was pretty floored to see that two people one in New York, the other in Mexico were both jamming to ...
Grace Turns 20
Aug 22, 2014 12:26pm | StereoGum
Jeff Buckley would have slayed on American Idol. We know this because Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” has become such a mainstay among TV singing contestants hoping to show off their virtuosic powers, and because nobody sang it better than Buckley. The song, originally released by Cohen in 1984, made its way to Buckley via John Cale’s 1991 cover version, which traded Cohen’s baritone deadpan and synthesized soul for piano arpeggios and annunciated dramatic flair. Buckley furthered that evolution, swapping out Cale’s reverent piano parts in favor of finger-plucked guitar figures that sound like his fingers gently coursing up and down a lover’s spine. It’s magnificent guitar work, flirtatiously pretty enough that it could probably stand alone as an instrumental. The voice, though, is the main attraction. Buckley imbued Cohen’s smirking lyrics with a deadly serious blend of reverie, agony, and lust, stretching from somber sighing whisper to earth-shaking cry with the same operatic flair he brought to every performance. He rarely lets it rip, opting mostly to let his celestially endowed esophagus emote with understated restraint. He doesn’t even break into his trademark falsetto. In those climactic moments when he does raise his voice, when the sensations he’s been holding at a simmer finally bubble up into a boil, the line between pleasure and pain is eradicated along with everything else; there is nothin...
Lollapalooza Attendee Arrested For Zombie Attack During Arctic Monkeys
Aug 22, 2014 12:23pm | StereoGum
The weirdest story out of this year’s Lollapalooza involved a man biting another man’s shoulder, zombie-style, during the Arctic Monkeys’ headlining set. Now police believe they’ve identified the culprit. Redeye reports that downtown Chicago resident Sergio Vicenteno, 33, has been charged with two accounts of aggravated battery at a public venue for sinking his teeth into Ben Lenet, 29, of Wicker Park, and tackling Lenet’s friend. Lenet was treated and released from the hospital the same day after undergoing preventative treatment for HIV and Hepatitis. Vicenteno (pictured) is being held in lieu of $60,000 bond.
Listen to Brass Cupcake, a new song from Melvins-Butthole Surfers super group
Aug 22, 2014 12:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound
As previously reported, sludge rockers Melvins tapped Butthole Surfers guitarist Paul Leary and bassist J.D. Pinkus to record their upcoming 23rd studio album, Hold It In, due out October 14th via Ipecac Recordings. Today, the temporary super group has unveiled two album tracks: “Bride of Crankenstein” is available now on iTunes, while “Brass Cupcake” is currently streaming online.
Combining Melvins grit and grim with Butthole Surfers country-fried swagger, “Brass Cupcake” balances angst-ridden dissonance with alt rock playfulness.
“‘Brass Cupcake’ is possibly my favorite track on Hold It In! We wrote this song with Pinkus and Paul in mind, once we knew this project was a go,” said drummer Dale Crover in a press release. “It is our version of what we think pop music should sound like. Get ready to freak out!”
Listen to it now over at Rolling Stone.

In support of Hold It In, the trio of Buzz Osborne, Crover, and the Surfers Pinkus will embark on a US tour in October. Consult their full schedule here.
