Rare and unreleased Sun Ra recordings remastered and reissued on vinyl
May 22, 2015 2:34pm | Fact Magazine

A new series is announced on what would have been Sun Ra’s 101st birthday.

The Manimal Group will reissue a series of Sun Ra recordings, a project that is being overseen by Sun Ra LLC administrator Irwin Chusid and Sun Ra Music Archiver Michael D. Anderson.

Billboard reports that the releases include a set of recordings from the basement of the Choreographers Workshop (where Sun Ra recorded in the early 60s), an exotica collection spanning his career, and a series of singles compiled by Anderson.

The series includes music from the reissues that were released last year. In addition, the Sun Ra LLC have partnered with the Virtual Label to release Sun Ra’s catalog on CD and LP later this year.

Last year, Mr Beatnik interviewed Peter Dennett, the space-jazz supremo

Superheaven @ The Studio at Webster Hall - 5/15/15

Superheaven kicked off their BrooklynVegan-presented tour with Diamond Youth and Rozwell Kid this past Friday (5/15) at NYC's Studio at Webster Hall, before all three of those bands played NJ's Skate & Surf festival. Locals Soda Bomb opened the night, with a set somewhere between King of the Beach-era Wavves and Blue Album-era Weezer. With their fizzy, explosive pop punk, Soda Bomb is pretty much the perfect name for them.

Rozwell Kid were up next, and they were also kinda Weezer-y but with classic rock bombast that's maybe more Maladroit than Blue Album. And them came Diamond Youth, who, with their sultry vocals over crunchy riffage, sounded more than a little like Queens of the Stone Age. QOTSA is one of those bands that I like, but I almost never like bands people tell me "sound like QOTSA." Diamond Youth are an exception to that rule -- it's good stuff. Their new album, Nothing Matters, came out this week on Topshelf. You can order one from the label or enter to win a copy at the BV Facebook. It's also streaming below.

Finally Superheaven wrapped up the night, and wasted no time getting to the good stuff with the banging "I've Been Bored" as their first song. Co-frontman Taylor Madison recently told Red Bull that he doesn't like being called "grunge" ...

Next week, the combustible Baton Rouge rapper Boosie BadAzz releases his absolutely furious new album Touch Down 2 Cause Hell, his first in years because of a prison term that interrupted his career for a long time.

Nicki Minaj has been teasing the video for one of The Pinkprint's few club bangers "The Night Is Still Young" on Instagram and Twitter for a while now, and today she's released it exclusively to Tidal. Just like the "Feeling Myself" video, though, it quickly made its way onto the internet. I still … More »



NOW HEAR THIS: Daniel Caesar goes acoustic, Destroyer is the anti-Springsteen
May 22, 2015 1:36pm | Chart Attack
Now Hear This is a daily dive into the standout songs of the day. Today, Toronto whiz kid Daniel Caesar goes acoustic, Destroyer is the Anti-Springsteen, and Willow Smith goes to Mecca.

Daniel Caesar, Acoustic Break EP

As if we need another reminder that the most exciting music is a conversation, not a statement, Toronto psych-soul up-and-comer (who honestly can't come up fast enough) Daniel Caesar has recorded a new EP, three-quarters of which are remade live-in-studio versions of his Praise Break EP. In her glowing Chart Attack review of that EP, Anupa Mistry called the production "refined, and almost suspiciously good." That might seem like something you wouldn't want to mess with, but these new, certified organic versions (plus the new track "Japanese Denim") emphasize another side of the young north Frank Ocean-ite. Namely, that voice. It's like velvet melted into a pile of butter heating in a silk farm. If that sounds like a room you'd want to be in, this EP takes you right into it. - Richard Trapunski

Destroyer, "Dream Lover"

Destroyer's first in four years blasts forth with Springsteenian zeal


Tame Impala

Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker has a pretty busy summer coming up, what with his band releasing the extremely anticipated album Currents and all. But Parker is making time for a friend, too. Parker sang three of the non-"Uptown Funk!" songs on Uptown Special, the really good and weirdly underrated album from his … More »



The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
May 22, 2015 1:28pm | StereoGum
Memorial Day weekend is upon us, but for the most part this week's best singles aren't the ideal soundtrack for your cookout. (Speaking of which: We're still waiting for those BBQ bangers you promised, Kanye.) The songs that struck us this week are mostly serious and/or introspective, and even the loud ones are a … More »

Video : Heather Woods Broderick :
May 22, 2015 12:34pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Known by performing and recording with artists such as Horse Feathers, Sharon Van Ettten, and Efterklang, Heather Woods Broderick is set to make a mark of her own with new album, Glider, set for release on July 10th through Western Vinyl. Her most recent song from it, “Wyoming”, is really something to behold. Laced with melancholic tone, the track truly pulls the listener into the pain and sadness which was “written about unrealized love.” The video maintains this sentiment showing Broderick roaming the Oregon Coast shot with super 16mm film beautifully. Watch below.
