Album Of The Week: Le1f Hey
Mar 11, 2014 9:39am | StereoGum
Chances are great that you, the reader sitting at home, give barely half a fuck (if that) about SXSW. Maybe you think it looks like fun, maybe you’re hoping to go one year, maybe you’ve been before, but the particulars of which barbecue place has the scariest line and whose RSVP list filled up the first are not going to rivet you. You just want to know what music is worth your attention. It’s not your fault the entire music industry has taken this week to descend on a mid-sized Texan city to gossip and drink and see bands and schmooze, but that is the reality. And given that so many people within the music business intend to spend the next five or six days eating tacos and nursing hangovers, very few of them want to go through the hassle of actually releasing music this week, and so we’re looking at a new-release slate as uninspiring as any we’ve seen since the first week of the year. So this week’s bad/weird news is that this week’s Album Of The Week isn’t an album at all; it’s a short EP, and one of that EP’s five songs is two years old. But the good news is that Le1f’s Hey is still really great.
Watch Chvrches Cover Lorde On BBC Radio 1
Mar 11, 2014 9:28am | StereoGum
We’ve gotten used to the sublime Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches doing covers of other great artists; in the past year they’ve tackled works by HAIM, Whitney Houston, Bauhaus, Janelle Monaé, Arctic Monkeys, and the Game Of Thrones theme. They added to their repertoire today on BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge, where they performed Lorde’s “Team,” a song especially suited to their skill set. Before the performance, they answered some questions including which artist they’d like to hear cover their own “Recover,” to which they replied Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins, Cat Power, or Tegan and Sara. Let them take you to chvrch below.

Great Scotts, they’ve done it again! CHVRCHES appeared on BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge on Tuesday morning, where they unveiled a synthtastic cover of Lorde’s latest chart-topping single, “Team”. Watch a replay of their full session below (the “Team” cover kicks in at the 3:44 mark).
It’s the latest in a string of stunning cover songs from the Glasgow outfit. Previously, we’ve heard them tackle Arctic Monkeys’ “Do I Wanna Know?”, HAIM’s “Falling”, Bauhaus’ Bela Lugosis Dead, Janelle Monaes Tightrope, and Whitney Houston’s “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay”. Their own catalog ain’t half bad either.
CHRVCHES will be on the road this summer, hitting festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Primavera Sound. Click here to see their full tour docket.

Motörhead reveals lineup for Motörboat: Anthrax, Megadeth, and more
Mar 11, 2014 9:05am | Cosequence Of Sound
Motörhead has announced the first group of acts set to perform on its appropriately (obviously?) named Motörboat festival cruise. Heavy metal heavyweights Megadeth and Anthrax will join Lemmy’s crew aboard the good ship Carnival Ectasy this September 22nd-26th.
In addition, Ozzy Osbourne guitars Zakk Wylde, Canadian rockers Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, and Wilson will all be on hand to rock the boat. Also on the lineup is comedian Jim Breuer, AKA Brian from Half Baked. The press release for the cruise promises “some big surprises”, with more bands being added soon.
“The Loudest Boat in the World” will set sail from the port of Miami on September 22nd and dock in Key West, FL and Cozumel, MX before dropping anchor for the last time on September 26th. The ship that will house the cruise, the Carnival Ecstasy, was recently refurbished and features “a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area, multiple dining options (including a 24-hour pizzeria), 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival health club, a jogging track, as well as 12 lounges, bars and nightspot.”
Fans and stowaways attending Motörboat will have opportunities to interact with the bands between sets on various stages throughout the ship. “This will be everything you’ve come to expect from a night out with us,” promises Motörhead’s Captain Lemmy, “except even louder, with more gr...

5 Questions with: The Front Bottoms
Mar 11, 2014 8:59am | Brooklyn Vegan
The Front Bottoms last released Talon of the Hawk in 2013. This coming week, they'll come to Austin for SXSW where one of their shows is the official BrooklynVegan showcase on Wednesday night after playing the Run For Cover/Brixton Agency day party the same day (flyers below). Meanwhile, we cornered the band and asked them 5 QUESTIONS:
1) What is your favorite venue to play in the country and why?
FB: One of our favorite venues to play in the states is Firehouse Pizza in Normal, IL. The main reason is because Zak is a god of a man. He knows how to take care of a band and is super generous.

Watch: Sabina Ddumba Scarred For Life
Mar 11, 2014 8:55am | The Line Of Best Fit
Having initially cut her teeth as guest vocalist on Katy Perry‘s nineties throwback anthem “Walking On Air” and Adam Kanyama‘s “Golden Child”, Swedish newcomer Sabina Ddumba strikes gold with her debut single “Scarred For Life”.
A powerful ballad that showcases Ddumba’s soulful vocal to wonderful effect, “Scarred For Life” cuts as deep as the lyrical content. Building slowly towards the gut wrenching chorus – “cuts are getting deeper, you really fucked me up this time” – the track destined to soundtrack endless heartbreaks.
Jay Z & Kanye West Will Play Samsungs SXSW Show
Mar 11, 2014 8:47am | StereoGum
Three years ago, Kanye West closed out SXSW with a late-night G.O.O.D. Music showcase at a converted power station. At the end of the show, Kanye brought out Jay Z for a quick set of collaborative songs. Not long after, they announced their collaborative Watch The Throne album. And now it’s time for an encore. Tomorrow night, Mashable reports that Jay and Kanye will headline a Samsung show together at an undisclosed location. (Brazos Hall seems like a likely spot; right now, its bill features Kanye buddies Pusha T, Big Sean, King Louie, and CyHi Da Prince.) To get tickets to the show, you’ll have to have a Samsung smartphone and its Milk Music radio-streaming app, then show up to pick up a wristband at a Samsung pop-up at Trinity and 2nd tomorrow at 10AM.

Watch: SZA Babylon
Mar 11, 2014 8:45am | The Line Of Best Fit
Fresh from her spots all over fellow TDE signee Isaiah Rashads Cilvia Demo, SZA has come into her own with the video for new track “Babylon”, taken from her Z EP.
The APLUS.FILMZ-directed clip takes place by the side of a lake, where we voyeuristically watch the popstrel undress. She methodically places her possessions on her cardigan (money, a pencil, a cracked iPhone in case you were wondering what she keeps in her pockets) before wading in and submerging herself in the dark water.
The cut itself is another example of the kind of stripped-back RnB that defines her sound, with the focus on vocals that languish somewhere in the grey area between haunting and sickly sweet, relishing the pseudo-spiritual abandon that defines the power of young love (“are you losing yourself?/will you lose it for me?”). Meanwhile a pared-down trap beat supports droning synths and brooding lyrics that repeatedly veer towards the theological (crucify me). The tone balances neatly with the image of SZAs self-baptism, her descent into the black abyss, leaving only a note for her boyfriend as a lingering farewell.
Z is released on 8 April.
Listen: Brody Dalles new single Dont Mess With Me
Mar 11, 2014 8:31am | Cosequence Of Sound
Ex-Distillers frontwoman Brody Dalle has delivered another slice of her debut solo LP, Diploid Love. Serving as the the album’s first proper single, “Don’t Mess With Me” is a resolute rocker that sees Dalle pumping herself up over squiggling guitars and a runner of a chorus. ”I got the feeling I can break out of anything that is standing in my way,” Dalle belts out during the hook. “You’re the reason I can stay and fight until the death / ‘Cause what I stand for will not give up.” Take a listen below.
Diploid Love is due out April 29th. For more sounds, check out the Shirley Manson-aided “Meet The Foetus / Oh The Joy” and “Parties for Prostitutes”.
Dalle also recently detailed her 2014 tour itinerary, and you can consult it out below.

Stream Skrillex Recess
Mar 11, 2014 8:25am | StereoGum
It’s not quite the same thing as pulling a Beyoncé, but a little more than a week ago, nobody even knew that the divisive dubstep moppet Skrillex was working on an album, and now that album, entitled Recess, is set to come out next week. The album is actually Skrillex’s full-length debut; to this date, he’s made his name on EPs and remixes and his face-melting DJ sets. The LP features collaborations from people like Chance The Rapper, Diplo, Niki & The Dove, Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos, and K-Pop stars G-Dragon and CL. The album is streaming right now on Skrillex’s free Alien Ride app. (It’s supposed to be on iTunes Radio now, too, but that doesn’t appear to be working at the moment.)
Recess is out 3/18 on OWSLA.
