Radio Round-Up: Power Increases, Remote Broadcasts And Connecticut Stations
Sep 19, 2014 2:35pm | CMJ

Welcome to Radio Round-up, wherein we take a look at what went down in college radio over the past week.

  • As of last Friday, September 12, 2014, CJAM quadrupled its broadcasting power 2,084 watts. This increase in wattage means that their signal now has a reach of 15-20 km (10-12 mi) radius. The station manager, Vernon Smith, said that along with the power increase the station will also be working on implementing higher quality programming.
  • One of the things that makes college radio so great is that no two stations are the same. Every station has their own format, different things they focus on and a unique way of programming. The Hartford Courant ran a feature on college radio stations in Connecticut, where it profiles stations throughout the state and sheds some light on what makes each station unique. The stations featured are: WNHU at the University of New Haven, WCNI at Connecticut College, WQAQ at Quinnipiac, WVOF at Fairfield University, WSIN at Southern Connecticut State University and WHRT at Sacred Heart University.
  • KFJC, the Foothill College station, is heading across the pond to Liverpool, U.K., where they will be presenting a live broadcast of the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia. For the past 20 years KFJC has been doing live remote broadcasts around the country and overseas. This broadcast will be available online as well as on the air at 89.7 in the San Francisco Bay Area. KFJC will also have live video footage a...

Jeremih Dont Tell Em (Remix) (Feat. Migos)
Sep 19, 2014 2:29pm | StereoGum

Earlier this week, we heard a remix of Jeremih’s explicit club anthem “Don’t Tell ’Em,” which featured new verses by Ty Dolla $ign and French Montana. Now, another remix of “Don’t Tell ’Em” is released, this time accompanied by verses from Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset, the three Atlanta natives who comprise hip-hop group Migos. Unfortunately the YG verse from the album version doesn’t make a comeback (“I got a missed call from your bitch”), but in other ways adheres closely to the original. The first two minutes are essentially identical to the first two minutes of the original mix, which makes the eventual appearance of Migos’ Dirty South trap verses, which reference Mike And Ikes, Fight Night, and “Peter Piper” even more exciting. Check out the new remix below.

SBTRKT releases song The Light listen
Sep 19, 2014 2:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound

This week, SBTRKT offers up not one, but two new tracks off his much-anticipated sophomore album, Wonder Where We Land. On Monday, the UK producer shared “Look Away”, his beguiling collaboration with Chairlift’s own Caroline Polachek. Today, he premiered “The Light” on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. A glitchy, lovesick number, it features the lush vocals of soul singer and fellow Londoner Denai Moore.

Speaking on the LP’s many guests, SBTRKT told DJ Annie Mac that he often finds himself “gravitating” towards collaborations because he loves “the meeting of two minds, the clashing of two ideas.”

Listen to “The Light” below.

Wonder Where We Land is due out October 7th via Young Turks. For more sounds, check out “New Dorp.New York” featuring Ezra Koenig, “Temporary View” featuring Sampha, “War Drums” featuring Warpaint, “Higher” featuring Raury, and “Voices In My Head” featuring ASAP Ferg.

Wonder Where We Land Tracklist:

02. Wonder Where We Land feat. Sampha
03. Lantern

Karen O @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery: Septmeber 18, 2014
Sep 19, 2014 2:20pm | CMJ

Last night was the second of three intimate performances with Karen O at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery’s Masonic Lodge. While the first show was seated with less bodies on the evening when the two-week heatwave in Los Angeles finally broke, the second evening was not so cool. Although outside it still was providing temperature relief, inside the Masonic Lodge the show was standing-only and the security guards needed to keep people on the edges of the room pressed together in order to allow Karen and her team to walk to and from the stage. With limited air conditioning the room soon became a hot box, one of the security members looked at the overcrowded room and joked, “Tonight we don’t care about the fire marshal.” (NOT hot: the fact that photographers were only allowed to shoot for a bizarrely alotted “three minutes.”)

Almost the entire set was songs off Karen O’s new album Crush Songs, so above the four throne-like chairs that sit on the temple stage was a neon sign that read “Crush Palace,” and whose light flickered and shifted with the changing tone of the music. Karen though broke from her crushing for the third song of the set when the lights suddenly shifted from harsh reds or blues to a warm light as she sang a cover of the Doors, Indian Summer. Then, because the show was entirely accoustic and there were no drums, Moses Sumney (who along with Holly Miranda was one of Karen...

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:

Ex-Against Me! / E Street Band drummer Jay Weinberg joins Slipknot, Laura Jane Grace dubs him a shitbag
Sep 19, 2014 2:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

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

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.
