New Mr. Oizo EP Title and Release Date Announced...
Jun 19, 2013 2:43pm | The Daily Swarm
Mr. Oizo is the freaking best surrealist in the dance music and French-as-fuck film scenes. Thankfully, he’s as prolific as he is apparently insane, and he’s got another new EP on the way.
We can’t wait. Enjoy a clip from his last LP, Stade 3.

Jun 19, 2013 2:39pm | Chart Attack
When Kevin Gates raps, he makes his emotions as clear as his tattoos. His breakthrough EP The Luca Brasi Story positioned him as the Nicolas Sparks-reading thug and tatted up crooner who valued love to an almost painful degree. He was just doing what came naturally, and

Watch: Wavves Oddly-Striking "That's On Me" Music Video...
Jun 19, 2013 2:34pm | The Daily Swarm
Wavves is some great beachy stoner rock’n'roll, and the band’s new music video for single “That’s On Me” is a real head-scratcher, but the song is hella catchy.
Basically, the big dude goes H.A.M. on different things with a Samurai sward while some happy cheerleaders egg him on. He starts off slicing soda bottles, then moves his way up to pig heads. The cheerleaders get a little morbid when they start feverishly eating the pig flesh.
Yeah, you just have to watch it for yourself.
Watch the fan-assisted video for Tricky
Jun 19, 2013 2:30pm | Fact Magazine
The Bristol legend mines Instagram for his latest video.
The video for ‘Hey Love’ is comprised of thousands of images that were shared with Tricky after an online request for images inspired by the lyrics and mood of the lovelorn song, which features the lilting vocals of Francesca Belmonte.
‘Hey Love’ appears on False Idols, Tricky’s best-in-a-decade new album. Tricky was forced to reschedule a tour due to visa issues. However, he recently sat down with FACT TV (part one and part two) and has been frequently featured in our Talking Heads series.

Andrew WK at Santos in May (more by Dan
Professional partier Andrew WK is in the midst of some shows singing in Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg (he already did one in NYC), and today he'll attempt to set a drumming world record. At 7 PM today (6/19), Andrew will head to the Oakley Store in Times Square and attempt to drum for 24 hours straight until Thursday at 7 PM, to set the record for "LONGEST DRUM SESSION IN A RETAIL STORE."
Throughout his session, he'll be joined by other drummers, including Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Marky Ramone (Ramones), Questlove (The Roots), Liberty DeVitto (former drummer for Billy Joel), and some serious hard hitters like Nick Jonas (Jonas Brothers) and Zac Hanson (Hanson). Plus there will be some surprise guests joining him along the way too.
The session will be hosted by OMusicAwards.com, aka the people who were also behind the Flaming Lips world record attempt. If you can't make it to Times Square, you can also watch the session stream live at the O Music Awards website. More information on O Music Award's blog and Andrew WK's site.
The next NYC stop on the Andrew WK/Marky Ramone tour happens on October 3 at Irving Plaza (tickets).

Watch Dehaan, a.k.a. Metallica
Jun 19, 2013 2:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Remember a couple of weeks ago when Metallica surprised everyone as Dehaan at Orion Music + More and performed their 1983 debut, Kill ‘Em All, in full on what might have been the smallest stage they’ve rocked on since 1983? It’s okay, we lose a lot of our short-term memory from too much sodium, but truth be told, that all happened. Need proof? The entire performance is now available to stream, thanks to some rockin’ fans with killer biceps. (Seriously, how else do you hold a camera steady for close to an hour?) In celebration, throw your stapler, kick that salad into the garbage, and get your Hump Day Metal on below.
ICYMI, we covered Orion to great effect, including a full writeup; interviews with Baroness, Bassnectar, FLAG, FOALS, Gogol Bordello, and Silversun Pickups; and a short documentary, the latter of which you can watch below.

Backtrack: Gang Gang Dance God
Jun 19, 2013 2:21pm | StereoGum
Gang Gang Dance’s 2005 record God’s Money used to feel difficult. To put it in context, at the time, seeing Gang Gang Dance live was alternately the best and most frustrating experience. They’d move from long drones to these moments of percussion-based psychedelic, eyes-roll-back-in-your-head bliss. The difficult parts made everything else that came after so much better. It also helped me understand records that came before that I’d been grappling with, like Out Hud’s S.T.R.E.E.T. D.A.D., which I wrote about last week.
By the time they released their follow-up, 2008′s
Saint Dymphna, they’d largely excised the difficult
stuff, with Lizzi Bougatsos’s voice leading the band through
a series of damaged percussion-based epics. Essentially, Saint
Dymphna and what came after, are focused versions of
God’s Money. The sound of Gang Gang Dance giving us
what we thought we wanted. They’re great records with moments
of absolute perfection, but I’ve always loved God’s
Money for what it doesn’t offer just as much as what it
Inequality on the Dancefloor: Female DJs Still Fight For Their Right to Airplay...
Jun 19, 2013 2:19pm | The Daily Swarm
The dance music scene is bigger and badder than ever, taking more chart space and influence that it’s ever enjoyed, well, probably ever. But that doesn’t mean PLUR vibes are strong in the universe.
Great female DJs are not really that rare, but it is rare to hear them on the radio, find them headlining festivals or even find themselves part of the daily EDM discussion. Legendary female DJ Annie Mac recently asked just what the hell that was all about. Actually, she blurted out that the EDM world needs more of a female presence at the BBC Academy’s Radio Fast Track conference last year.
Now that EDM business is on the brain, the Guardian UK took a closer look at the female DJs modern reality:
Whirr releasing a new mini-LP, announce tour (dates, stream)
Jun 19, 2013 2:15pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
California shoegazers Whirr (whose Nick Bassett used to be one of the revolving members in post-metal crew Deafheaven) are set to release a new mini-LP, Around, on July 9 via Graveface. The first single from that release, "Swoon," is total shoegaze in terms of atmosphere, but the music itself is darker, heavier, and more similar melodically to a band like Hum than MBV. Check that song out below.
Whirr will be supporting the new mini-LP with a tour this summer. Many of the dates on the tour are with Nothing, including the NYC show happening on August 13 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but check Ticketfly for updates. All dates are listed below.
Meanwhile, Nothing also open for Deafheaven when their tour with Marriages comes to NYC for a show at Saint Vitus (7/2) (IO Presents). That show is totally sold out.
All Whirr dates are listed, along with that song stream, below...

Punk weirdos Wavves release another oddball clip with “That’s On Me.” This one is way less trippy than “Afraid Of Heights,” but still contains multitudes of absurdity. Whether it’s a suit seeking stress-relief via slicing up soda bottles or parody metal dude standing in for Nathan Williams, the video is filled with quirk. Check it out below.
