One Direction has teamed up with Nabisco for a huge, multi-brand sponsorship deal. While Nabisco doesn’t always have their hand in the music game, they have consistently linked up with big pop acts to focus on the tween demographic. Via Billboard Biz:
UK quartet Syd Arthur playing NYC in June (dates, streams)
May 21, 2013 3:01pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Prog/psych/folk quartet Syd Arthur hail from Canterbury, England and released their debut album, On and On, last year, which got four stars in Mojo. While the album has its share of time signature left turns and trippy elements, pop songs are at its core -- with some nice jazzy moments too. One of the band's distinct sonic elements is violinist Raven Bush, whose aunt is Kate Bush. Paul Weller is also a fan. Maybe you saw them at this year's SXSW? You you can can stream a few tracks below and the whole record's up on Spotify.
As mentioned, Syd Arthur will be coming to the U.S. next month
for a show at Mercury Lounge on June 18 with
Celestial Shore. Tickets for that show are still
available. It's their only North American show, but all upcoming
dates (mostly in the UK) are listed below.

Apologies for those who already know, but before “Crazy” and “Fuck You” and The Voice, Cee-Lo was one fourth of the ridiculously great Atlanta rap group Goodie Mob, whose first two albums are indisputable essential classics and whose third album is kind of sneaky-great. Last year, the group reunited on (of course) The Voice and released a somewhat perplexing new song called “Is That You God.” They’ve now announced plans for a full-on reunion album with the kinda-hilarious title Age Against The Machine, and its new single is a pretty great piece of stomping circus-funk called “Special Education.” Janelle Monáe shows up to supply a showily art-rocking hook. Listen to it below.

Tommie Sunshine Muses on the House-tastic Beauty of Romanthony...

Gone, but not forgotten; Romanthony was one of the greatest vocalists that the dance floor has ever seen. When Dj/producer Tommie Sunshine heard the news – he couldn’t stop crying. But when the tears subsided, Sunshine reflected on what made the loss so devastating. Via The Huffington Post:
Listen to Daft Punk

Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories hits stores today, and while the cat’s been out of the bag for a whole week now, there’s one more surprise to enjoy: a Japanese bonus track. Titled “Horizon”, the light meditative stroll is without a doubt the most tranquil piece of music they’ve composed to date, and comes sprinkled with Eno synths, Michel Rubini guitar work, and Tangerine Dream moods. If you daydream too far, you might find end up here. Take a listen at NO BPM.
Random Access Memories is out now via Columbia. In related news, we recently bundled all of Daft Punk’s past collaborators into an easy-to-read feature — check that out here. And if you’re already tired of RAM, then perhaps you’ll enjoy its alternate version.

Chief Keef shares his thoughts on everyone’s favourite pasta.
He was only released from Dekalb County Jail this morning after being arrested for disorderly conduct and marijuana possession, but already Keith Cozart is back in the driver’s seat leaking this brand new cut. It’s business as usual for the polarizing rapper, and finds him awkwardly slurring over a decidedly synth-heavy backdrop.
‘Macaroni Time’ isn’t breaking any new ground for the Chicago drill superstar but this is Chief Keef we’re talking about, and from the sounds of things he’s been pretty busy recently. [via Complex]
Album Of The Week: Majical Cloudz Impersonator
May 21, 2013 2:29pm | StereoGum
You never, as a music dork, stop learning this lesson, but the truth behind it stands: It’s always, always a bad idea to dismiss an artist based on a terrible name. That rule is right up there with “horrendous rappers get better all the time, so stop believing it can’t happen,” and we break the rule just as often as that one. Case in point: Majical Cloudz. And, I mean, holy gods what an awful name. It’s name that conjures Trapper Keeper designs and rap-metal fake-toughness (that Z!) at the same damn time, and it makes the group seem, immediately, like a halfassed joke, like the sort of band whose music videos consist entirely of floating psychedelic CGI landscapes. And it didn’t help that, up until now, the only things that most of us knew about them were that they were from Montreal and that they were friends with Grimes; Grimes is turning into a pure force of cultural badassery, but she can still align herself with some wack shit. At SXSW, I didn’t just skip multiple chances to see Majical Cloudz live; I actually made the “pssh” noise out loud when presented with the opportunity. This was stupid. This was a mistake on par with high-school me hating on Daft Punk because they had “punk” in their name but weren’t actually punk. As their new album Impersonator makes crystal-clear; Majical Cloudz don’t just make good music; they make the sort of good music that creeps its way into ...

The Kids Are Not Alright: Festivals Are Too Expensive for the Youth Market...
May 21, 2013 2:25pm | The Daily Swarm
Yes, we all that festivals are exorbitantly expensive, but now it’s getting to the point where the average festival-goer is above 35. Will festivals lose their cultural influence if they cease to be about the kiddies? Well, thanks to online piracy, artists must demand more for live performances, but can we rightly blame kids for their filesharing ways? FACT talked to Rob Da Bank for his insight on the problem.
Austra remixed by Ital and Kevin Saunderson (listen); tour w/ DIANA starts soon
May 21, 2013 2:14pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Austra at Music Hall of Williamsburg in 2012 (more by
As mentioned, Austra are releasing their sophomore album, Olympia, on June 18 via Domino/Paper Bag, and will be touring in support of it over the next few months. That tour hits NYC for a show on June 20 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Mozart's Sister (sold out) and a BrooklynVegan-presented show on September 22 at Webster Hall (tickets).
The Webster Hall show and many of their other August/September shows are with fellow Canadians DIANA, who just signed to Jagjaguwar in the US and Paper Bag in Canada. Their debut LP, Perpetual Surrender will come out on August 20 and you can watch the video for its single, "Born Again," below.
Regarding Austra's upcoming album, in a recent interview with Stereogum, singer Katie Stelmanis talked about the differences recording this one with her band, as opposed to entirely solo like Austra's debut:
Yeah, it's something that I was kind of craving. I feel like when you hear a solo record from someone you can kind of always tell that it's a solo record. Like, if literally one person did everything on the record it's like you're following their train of thought. Everything is predictable and fits into this certain box. It's one person's idea, and I was very aware of that, and I wanted to create something that's a little more dynamic. And so doing that I wanted to bring...

Deafheaven’s George Clarke and Kerry McCoy enjoy bodysurfing of the different sort. Rather than risk the sharks and shell shards (say that three times faster), the Bay Area duo let themselves go in the raw orchestral distortion — and for 10 whole minutes. It’s the stuff meant to shake and shatter arenas everywhere. Good god. Stream below.
