(We also posted Lampchop’s cover a little while ago.) Listen to the Neko version below.

DOOM and Bishop Nehru team up on Caskets listen
Sep 19, 2014 2:05pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Masked hip-hop vet DOOM and rising 18-year-old MC Bishop Nehru are gearing up to release their joint album, NehruvianDOOM. Following previous album cuts “Om” and “Darkness (HBU)”, the collaborative duo return with a slick number entitled “Caskets”. Here, the two rappers trade plucky verses, each showing off their differing spitting styles over a retro, Motown-esque backdrop.

Listen in below (via Noisey).

Originally set for release on September 23rd, NehruvianDOOM will now arrive on October 6th via Lex Records.

NehruvianDOOM Tracklist:
01. Intro
02. Om

Ex-Against Me! / E Street Band drummer Jay Weinberg joins Slipknot, Laura Jane Grace dubs him a shitbag

Just before recording Transgender Dysphoria Blues, Against Me! parted ways with their drummer Jay Weinberg in rather unceremonious fashion when Weinberg simply announced his departure on Twitter, without informing the band first. When asked why Weinberg had left, Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace told Spin, “To be honest, I have no idea. He never said a word. I just woke up one morning and read on Twitter that he was leaving the band.”

Now Weinberg has found a new home with Slipknot (do we need to remind you that this guy once play with the E Street Band?), and Grace had some choice words for the drummer and his nu metal band. “Dear Slipknot, good luck with that. #shitbag,” she wrote on Twitter.

But that’s not all she had to say. Apparently fueled by a “salty” feeling due to a lack of caffeine, Grace revealed a few stories about Against Me!’s time with Weinberg.

We once had a drummer who sprained his ankle and wanted our tour manager to call 911 and have an ambulance come for him #entitlement

Bear in Heaven finished their tour with two NYC shows with Young Magic and WIFE (pics from MHOW)

Bear in Heaven @ MHOW 9/17/2014

Was it less of a challenge to create things intuitively without agonizing over them?

JP: Oddly not. It's like when you do things like that, other things become challenging. Most of our songs are, at first inception, generally layered--lots and lots of stuff going on, lots of parts. And then as we went on making it, we just kept pulling parts out, pulling sounds out. I think by the time we were done, we really got to the point where we were like, "We're sort of at the core of this music." That's what we were looking for--trying to find the center.

It's tricky, you know, because we historically are this band who sort of, like, have big sound, you know, lots of things going on. So to do something going in the opposite direction, it's a little frightening. The last song on our record starts a cappella. Playing it live, it's crazy. - [Columbia Spectator]

Bear in Heaven wrapped up their North American tour for their new album with two shows in NYC: Tuesday (9/16) at Bowery Ballroom and then Wednesday (9/17) on their home turf of Music Hall of Williamsburg. Opening both shows were the well-matched, vibe-wise, fellow Brooklynites Young Magic and WIFE (the electronic solo project from Altar of Plagues frontman James Kelly). Pictures from the night are in this post.

NehruvianDOOM Caskets
Sep 19, 2014 1:41pm | StereoGum

The teenage Brooklyn rapper Bishop Nehru has teamed up with the masked underground rap eminence DOOM to form a duo called NehruvianDOOM, and their self-titled album is coming out later this year. We’ve already heard two of the LP’s tracks, “Darkness (HBU)” and “Om,” but we haven’t heard one thing from the LP yet, and that’s DOOM delivering a proper verse on the album. But on “Caskets,” the latest track from the EP, DOOM opens things up with a nicely grizzled appearance before Nehru takes over the track with young-scholar energy. DOOM also produced the track, and it’s got his woozily melodic dusty jazz-influenced fingerprints all over it. Listen below.

Check Out Haims New Alana-Shaped 7
Sep 19, 2014 1:33pm | StereoGum

Haim have allegedly started work on their follow-up to last year’s highly rated debut album Days Are Gone, which — and this seems crazy to me — isn’t even a year old yet. So although the album already feels like an old, weathered classic, it isn’t that crazy that Haim are still releasing singles off it. The next one, a limited-edition 7″ picture disc of “My Song 5,” will be extra-special: As CoS points out, the vinyl comes shaped like Alana Haim, with arms and legs stretching well beyond the circular outline. The B-side will be the “My Song 5″ remix with A$AP Ferg, for which they also made a star-studded music video recently.

Kurt Vile reunites with The War on Drugs in Philadelphia watch
Sep 19, 2014 1:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Before Kurt Vile ascended into solo stardom, he was a co-founding member of The War on Drugs. Vile and frontman Adam Granduciel actually formed the backbone of the group in 2003, collaborating together in spurts before making it a full-time gig in 2005. Vile helped write and record much of the groups debut LP, 2008s Wagonwheel Blues, but departed following the band’s subsequent world tour.

Last week, the band got back together, as it were, as Vile sat in and jammed on a few songs during The War on Drugs’ September 12th show in Philly. The collective tore through an especially epic version of Lost in the Dream standout “Under Pressure”; unfurled Wagonwheel Blues mighty roots anthem “Arms Like Boulder”; and delivered a hallmark of recent TWOD gigs, a cover of Bill Fays “I Hear You Calling”. While the evening may have been a one-time occasion, the “reunited” band demonstrated a real sense of cohesion, as if Vile had never really left at all.

Local station WXPN was on hand for the show, and you can watch their footage below.

The Dictators playing NYC on NYE w/ Dirty Fences & Hector's Pets, FFF Nites, touring West Coast (dates)
Sep 19, 2014 1:13pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Patti Smith isn't the only NYC punk legend celebrating the new year in her hometown this year. The Dictators, whose 1975 album Go Girl Crazy! was highly influential on the early punk scene and included a cover of "California Sun" two years before the Ramones released one, will hit the small Bowery Electric on New Year's Eve with support from two younger garage punk bands, Dirty Fences and Hector's Pets. There will be a champagne toast at midnight, and tickets are on sale now. Their current lineup includes lead singer Handsome Dick Manitoba with other longtime members Ross The Boss and JP "Thunderbolt" Patterson, plus Daniel Rey and Dean Rispler.

Before that, The Dictators will be in Austin for one of the FFF Nites shows which are all free with your Fun Fun Fun Fest wristband. Stay tuned for more info on the exact show they'll play. After NYE, The Dictators will go on their first west coast year in over ten years.

It's been a busy day for '70s NYC punk, with Blondie and Johnny Thunders news too.

All Dictators dates are listed, with a couple classic song streams, below...

Another New David Bowie Album Definitely Soon Says Tony Visconti
Sep 19, 2014 1:12pm | StereoGum

Last year, out of nowhere, David Bowie returned to the public eye with The Next Day, his first album in 10 years and best in far longer. Although Bowie hasn’t been making a lot of public appearances in support of the record, a few months back he issued a vague statement promising more new music “soon.” When news broke a few weeks ago that unreleased material will appear on the Bowie greatest hits collection Nothing Has Changed, it tempered expectations that the Thin White Duke might have an entirely new project in the works. But no, Bowie “definitely” does have another album coming “soon,” The Next Day producer Tony Visconti reiterated in a new interview with CNN. “There’s gonna be another album, definitely,” was Visconti’s exact quote.

Song : Allegories : Funny Way of Loving You
Sep 19, 2014 1:12pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Get ready to hear the latest artist or artists going mysterious, Allegories. There is nothing out their on the project other than some masked photos on their facebook page and a location of “Aknee Wear”. What we do have is a stream and video for lush song “Funny Way of Loving You”. While he and his band U2 are not the most popular people on the planet at the moment, there is a certain epic quality about the song where the vocals and sounds elevate in a very Bono way. It is an amazing introduction that has us wondering if this is some new kids on the block or a more established artist. Stream and watch below.


Porches. Prism
Sep 19, 2014 1:05pm | StereoGum

Porces. is Aaron Maine, a New York resident who makes spindly, idiosyncratic homemade pop music and who’s been putting out a steady stream of smaller releases for a minute now. He’s now linked up with Terrible Records, the label that Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor co-founded, to release two new songs on a 7″ single. The A-side is “Prism,” a slippery and insinuating synthpop jam, and you can hear it below.
