Watch the video for Blaqstarrs Baltimore club classic Hands Up Thumbs Down, helmed by 12 OClock Boys director

The Baltimore anthem gets a long, long overdue video.

Earlier this year,Blaqstarr reissued ‘Hands Up Thumbs Down’ as part of Blaq Files , an EP of hard-to-find material that was released by Mad Decent.

Blaq has continued his trip down memory lane with a video for the impossibly catchy anthem. The video was directed by Lotfy Nathan, the man behind 12 O’Clock Boys, a recent documentary that chronicled illegal West Baltimore dirt-bike crews.

Watch the video below. For more Blaqstarr, check out FACT’s interview the Baltimore club mystic.



The Hanged Man (ex Those Dancing Days) released debut and new video (streams)
Nov 21, 2014 8:50am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Some of you may remember Swedish indie pop band Those Dancing Days whose update of girl group / northern soul was pretty charming. The bandwent on hiatus in 2011 but guitarist Rebecka Rolfart continues to make music with her new project, The Hanged Man. Their debut, First Quarter Moon, was just released via Kning Disk/Telegram Studios and displays a darker side than her old band ever did. There are still poppy moments, and danceable ones too, but these days are grayer. You can stream the whole mini-LP (via Rdio) below.

We've also got the premiere of the video for "The Island" which opens the record. Filmed on the island of Gotland in Sweden, directors Sheila Johansson and Michelle Claesson Eismann capture the mood of the song in gorgeous monochrome. Watch it below.

Hamilton Leithauser Room For Forgiveness
Nov 21, 2014 8:42am | StereoGum

The former Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser released his debonair, lived-in solo debut Black Hours earlier this year, and it was really, really good. This morning, Leithauser shared a new non-album song called “Room For Forgiveness,” previously available on a tour-only 7″. It’s an emotional, sozzled number, with backing vocals that push it into straight-up drinking-song territory. Leithauser’s voice remains an absolute wonder, and he really uncorks it toward the end of this one. It’s a really good song, and you can listen to it below.

Listen to Sun Kil Moons The Possum, featuring ex-Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley
Nov 21, 2014 8:29am | Fact Magazine

Mark Kozelek returns with a song about… dead possums.

Sun Kil Moon, backed by ex-Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, has released ‘The Possum’, due out December 1 on his Caldo Verde imprint. Subject matter aside, the nine-minute song is certainly refreshing after his juvenile, one-sided feud with indie rockers War on Drugs.

Stream ‘The Possum’ below and read Maya Kalev’s review of Kozelek’s gobsmacking Benji LP. [via Stereogum]


Sun Kil Moon premieres new single The Possum listen
Nov 21, 2014 8:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

Lest we all forget, Mark Kozelek (aka Sun Kil Moon) does record music that doesnt involve slamming the bejesus out of The War On Drugs. Next month, Kozelek will follow-up the excellent Benji LP with a new, nine-minute single called “The Possum”.

Featuring former Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, the song is equal parts ballad and literary narrative, an intense and winding journey through the various stories and reactions one could expect upon finding a dead possum in the road. A decidedly hokey gimmick for sure, but Kozeleks subtle choices, from the range of emotions explored to the undulating piano line, make this a deeply gripping experience.

Heres an idea, Mr. Kozelek: if you really want to call someone out for being creatively inferior, do it with songs like this and not ones involving bad oral sex jokes. Listen in below.

“The Possum” will be available December 1st via Kozeleks own Caldo Verde imprint.

Watch Metallica Play Enter Sandman On The Late Late Show
Nov 21, 2014 8:15am | StereoGum

Last night, Metallica played the fourth night of their five-night residency on Craig Ferguson’s not-long-for-this-world Late Late Show. They’d been busy the three previous three nights, running through “Hit The Lights,” “Fuel,” and the great “For Whom The Bell Tolls.” Last night, they trotted out arguably their best-known song, the 1991 anthem “Enter Sandman.” That is a pretty rude song to play to a bunch of television viewers who are trying not to fall asleep! But the performance pretty much ruled, and it’s still fun to watch James Hetfield doing the evil-laughter thing a couple of decades later. Watch it below.

Joyce Manor Tame
Nov 21, 2014 8:14am | StereoGum

Joyce Manor’s Never Hungover Again is a riotously fun record that deals with some insanely depressing shit, and that carries over to “Tame,” a heartily improved version of “See How Tame I Can Be,” an older track that first appeared on their sophomore album Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired. It’s a rip-roaring track that burns out just as soon as it kicks in and contains some great cutting lyrics like, “See how tame I can be; in the reflection I watch myself watching TV/ And it’s too much to take and so I say to myself, ’I never told you that I loved you because I don’t.’” The track is on a new split 7″ with San Pedro punks Toys That Kill. Listen below.

PAN announces another gritty Black Sites 12 from Hamburgs Helena Hauff and F#X
Nov 21, 2014 8:13am | Fact Magazine

The Golden Pudel residents line up a sequel to last year’s 12″.

Hamburg’s Helena Hauff and F#X were supposed to release their second collaboration back in April, but for whatever reason we’re finally getting hold of the latest Black Sites 12″ just in time for Christmas.

Leading with the abrasive ‘Unit 2669′, which pairs a gamelan-esque pitched percussion melody with ominous whirring drones to spectacularly banging effect, the two-track is completed by ‘’, or ‘Moscow’.

Hear the lead track in the player and nab the 12″ from PAN  who’ve had another very good year with strong records from Objekt, Valerio Tricoli and others on December 15. The release coincides with a solo 12″ from Hauff on Lux Rec, ‘Shatter Cone’. [via JunoPlus]



Band Aid 30 probably wont make Christmas number one after all
Nov 21, 2014 8:13am | Fact Magazine

Bob Geldof may have dug deep in his celebrity phonebook (and, judging by vlogger Zoella’s involvement, the Related Videos tab on Youtube) for Band Aid 30, but it doesn’t seem to have got him Christmas number one.

The charity single, which features some of pop’s biggest names (but was also knocked back by Adele and Ghanian superstar Fuse ODG, who criticised Geldof’s portrayal of Africa in an op ed earlier this week), is currently behind the as-yet-to-be-named X Factor winner on both William Hill and Paddy Power.

According to a William Hill spokesman, Band Aid 30′s sales have been “slightly lower than expected”.

Granted, the X Factor winner’s single will be released much closer to Christmas, giving it a a significant advantage, but if we can’t take pleasure in a minor festive kick to the teeth of Geldof, Smith, Zoella and co then is it really Christmas time at all?

Read FACT’s interview with Fuse ODG, and vote for a real song to be Christmas number one here.

Nov 21, 2014 7:59am | StereoGum

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars will perform their new single “Uptown Funk” on Saturday Night Live this weekend and NBC has released the promos for the show which feature the two of them going head-to-head with host Cameron Diaz. They do some Nardwuar-esque awkward still posing and Diaz gets frustrated with them for not saying anything funny. No one gets a piggyback ride, but they’re okay. You can watch below.
