Henry Rollins Criticizes Robin Williams And Other Suicide Victims In Controversial Editorial
Aug 21, 2014 5:22pm | StereoGum

In the wake of Robin Williams’ suicide there have been many responses and reactions. Today, Henry Rollins wrote an editorial for LA Weekly titled “Fuck Suicide.” Rollins’ main point is essentially that people who are parents have no right to end their lives as it will traumatize their children, but he goes on to say that he has disdain for people who commit suicide:

Listen: Katy Perry and RiFF RaFFs This Is How We Do Remix
Aug 21, 2014 5:08pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Katy Perrys list of rap collaborations is steadily growing. Earlier this year, she teamed up with Juicy J for the trap-tinged single “Dark Horse”, and before that, she worked with Kanye for 2011’s “E.T.”. Now the Neon Icon himself, RiFF RaFF, is joining the ranks with a verse on the remix to her Prism track “This Is How We Do”.

Though RaFF’s verse is short, he packs in a bevy of his trademark punchlines. Proclaiming himself both the rap game Dr. Drew and Ted Koppel, RaFF boasts about valeting his helicopter on top of a Red Lobster and pulling up in a Lamborghini while holding Roman candles. It’s about as absurd and boastful as we’ve come to expect from Mr. Jody Highroller.

Listen in below.

Richie Sambora Reconciles With Jon Bon Jovi Thanks To Ice Bucket Challenge?
Aug 21, 2014 4:47pm | StereoGum

It’s a social media miracle! Well, kind of. Maybe. See, relations between Jon Bon Jovi and longstanding Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora have been frigid lately, and Sambora hasn’t performed with Bon Jovi for well over a year. But as Billboard points out, while participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, JBJ nominated Sambora along with bandmates David Bryan and Tico Torres. Sambora then recorded his own Ice Bucket Challenge video, but he didn’t mention Bon Jovi. Does that mean they’ve made up, or they haven’t? Watch both videos below and decide for yourself.

Nickelodeon knowingly ripped off Tobacco, according to commercial producer
Aug 21, 2014 4:27pm | Cosequence Of Sound

This week, a Nickelodeon commercial came under fire for appearing to rip off a song by Black Moth Super Rainbows Thomas Fec, aka Tobacco. Now, more evidence has surfaced suggesting blatant plagiarism: Not only has the advertisement been removed YouTube, but producer Eric Robertson, who was originally tasked to write the commercial’s music, claims that Tobacco’s “Creepy Phone Calls” was in fact the reference track.

In a statement to Stereogum, Robertson explained: “I was originally commissioned to write the music for the Nickelodeon vid. The reference track obviously was ‘Creepy Phone Calls’. I produced seven different songs/versions in a similar style to use for the vid, but I wouldnt rip it off, so apparently they found someone else who would.”

“It isnt Nickelodeons fault,” Robertson added. Nickelodeon hired it out to an ad agency and the agency made all the calls.”

For his part, Fec has been pretty nonchalant about the whole thing, telling Vice that he doesn’t plan to take legal action.



Listen: Zeahorse Career, Plus Tour Dates
Aug 21, 2014 4:25pm | CMJ


Zeahorse are towering figures of the Australian underground scene, and now they are gearing up to bring their transcendentally heavy psych-pound to the states. The band’s first U.S. release will be an EP called Pools, out in September via Canada’s Dine Alone Records. In conjuction with the EP release, the band will tour the States for the first time, bringing their genre-bending sound to the East and West coasts and sharing the stage with the likes of Ice Choir and Magic Giant.

We’ve already heard the EP’s title track, Pool, with its breathy vocals and swirling guitars, and today the band has unveiled another of the EP’s killer tunes. Career is significantly heavier, featuring huge, dissonant guitar riffs and punishing, metallic drums. Check out the tune and the band’s upcoming tour dates below.

Tour Dates For Zeahorse:
09/13 Burbank, CA – The Park Bar & Grill
09/17 Tucson, AZ – Solar Culture
09/18 Long Beach, CA – The Prospector

Watch: The Weeknds sensual video for Often
Aug 21, 2014 4:21pm | Cosequence Of Sound

The Weeknd has revealed the music video for his lusty new single “Often”.

Like the suave Casanova that he is, Abel Tesfaye welcomes an endless parade of women through his hotel room. Judging by the song’s very explicit lyrics and the R&B crooner’s penchant for the sensual, something tells me Tesfaye and his lady friends aren’t just linking up to play a few rounds of charades. Watch the NSFW clip below.

Catch The Weeknd in the flesh (see what I did there?) this fall at the dates below.

The Weeknds King of Fall 2014 Tour Dates:
09/19 Brooklyn, NY @ Barclays Center
09/21 Toronto, Canada @ Molson Ampitheatre
10/09 Hollywood, CA @ Hollywood Bowl
10/10 San Francisco, CA @ Bill Graham Civic Auditorium



Nite Jewel Hounds Of Love (Kate Bush Cover)
Aug 21, 2014 4:19pm | StereoGum

“Hounds Of Love” is one of many Kate Bush songs that have been covered again and again; the most famous version around these parts is the ace Futureheads version from a decade ago. Now Nite Jewel, aka Ramona Gonzalez, has taken a swing at it, and man is it different from that Futureheads cover — and the original, for that matter. This one casts “Hounds Of Love” as ominous bass music and then, suddenly, misty R&B-informed funk. Gonzalez recorded this as part of Mojo’s new tribute to Bush. Hear it below.

The Weeknd Often Video (NSFW)
Aug 21, 2014 4:08pm | StereoGum

The Weeknd’s new video for “Often,” the loose track he released earlier this summer, is peak Weeknd. Abel Tesfaye spends the whole thing in a stylish hotel room, staring dispassionately at nothing and singing about nasty sex while ignoring the many beautiful and sometimes naked women who slide through the room. The camera dizzily whirls around Tesfaye throughout, seemingly jumping randomly through time. But Tesfaye never changes. He hasn’t really changed since we met him, has he? Watch the video below.

The Week In Pop: On Not Hating Taylor Swifts Much-Hated Anti-Hater Anthem
Aug 21, 2014 4:02pm | StereoGum

“Shake It Off” is hater-proof, which is a good thing because damn do people ever hate it. Not everyone, of course: The lead single from Taylor Swift’s 1989 is projected to become her second #1 hit next week. That makes sense because “Shake It Off,” while no masterpiece, is built to be an irrepressible smash. A series of professional-grade hooks set to simple, meme-ready lyrics with a “Hey Ya”-meets-”Hollaback Girl” pep rally for a bridge, it is the kind of song that you end up internalizing without ever really thinking about it. But people who do think about it have shared a lot of thoughts this week, and most of them have manifested some combination of disappointment and disgust. Wondering Sound’s insightful roundtable is a one-stop shop for critiques of “Shake It Off” and its video, a laundry list of crimes against good taste including but not limited to ripping off a relatively recent Mariah Carey song title, draining Swift’s music of its distinguishing factors, lazily relying on tired “persecution pop” tropes, disingenuously presenting the relentlessly poised and put-together Swift as a clueless dweeb, and — as has become the unfortunate standard for white female pop stars — perpetuating harmful stereotypes about black women.

ONWE released 'jk bb,' made videos, playing shows
Aug 21, 2014 4:02pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

ONWE, the "Bushwick cyberpunx" project led by David Welles, recently released a single, "jk bb" / "Unpaid Internship," via Capitalist Records. The label's logo looks a lot like Capitol Records' logo, and ONWE's single artwork (above) looks a lot like Sacred Bones artwork. Both tracks can be streamed for free or downloaded for $1,000 or more on bandcamp and they've got videos for both songs too, which you can watch below. Both videos begin with the Capitalist Records logo, and their love of irony doesn't stop there. The "Unpaid Internship" video appears to be mocking the same things the Brooklyn Girls video (which came out a month and a half later) is celebrating, and the "jk bb" video looks like it's mocking the Tumblr aesthetic, while also using the Tumblr aesthetic, of course.

ONWE have a few shows coming up, including two in their hometown. The first is Friday (8/22) at Bowery Electric with Beiju, Madam West, The Yin Yangs and their Capitalist Recs labelmate Bodega Bay. Then, the following Friday (8/27), they play a Showpaper benefit at Trans Pecos with Bluffing, Matt Holden and Fern Mayo.

All dates are listed, with the videos, below...

Taylor Swift video director responds to accusations of racism
Aug 21, 2014 3:58pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this week, Taylor Swifts new video for “Shake It Off” garnered heavy criticism for what some viewers believed was a racially-motivated appropriation of African Americans. One of the more prominent critics of the video was Earl Sweatshirt. In a series of tweets, the young rapper called the clip “inherently offensive and ultimately harmful” for the way in which it perpetuated stereotypes to the “same demographic of white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture.”

Now, the videos director, Mark Romanek, has responded to Sweatshirts comments in a new interview with Vulture. Though he admitted to being a fan of the MC, Romanek said that Sweathshirts admission of not having seen the video “sort of invalidates his observations from the get-go.”

Responding to the accusations of racism, Romanek said that he, Swift, and the entire production crew originally set out to create something that was both satirical and light-hearted. “We simply chose styles of dance that we thought would be popular and amusing and cast the best dancers that were presented to us without much regard to race or ethnicity,” he explained. “If you look at it carefully, it’s a massively inclusive piece. It’s very, very innocently and positively intentioned. And let’s remember its a satirical piece. It’s playing with a whole...
