Conrad Shawcross The Ada Project ARTEFACT 006
Nov 20, 2014 12:00pm | Fact Magazine
For Conrad Shawcrosss ADA Project, four renowned female artists were invited to create compositions in response to a dancing robot, programmed and hacked by the London-based artist himself. The idea was to reverse the traditional commissioning process rather than a machine responding to music, instead the machine is the primary source of inspiration. The result is a unique, collaborative artwork consisting of four robotic choreographies, each with an intrinsically connected composition.
Youth Funeral releasing an EP on Twelve Gauge (hear a song)
Nov 20, 2014 12:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Rob Sperry-Fromm
New Hampshire screamo group Youth Funeral are putting out a new EP called See You When I See You on January 27 via Twelve Gauge Records, also home of Nervous, No Sir and others. We're premiering the EP's new single "When It Pours."
"When It Pours" is a complex, heavy slab of screamo in the Orchid/Loma Prieta/Deathwish Inc/etc vein. One thing that sticks out about them is the technically proficient instrumentalism. The song moves from section to section seamlessly, starting with grind-y blasts of aggression and moving towards a subtler, more emotive coda. It manages to be technical, emotional, and tightly composed at the same time. The EP was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Will Killingsworth, whose work with Orchid, We Were Skeletons, My Fictions and others proves he knows how to make bands like this sound great in the studio. Here's looking forward to what the rest of the EP sounds like.
Stream "When It Pours" below...

Eminem unearths lost demo version of Lose Yourself listen
Nov 20, 2014 11:58am | Cosequence Of Sound
As the theme to his biopic 8 Mile, “Lose Yourself” became one of Eminems biggest hits. It was his first #1 single and the first rap song ever to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Its legacy is massive, but it was almost something entirely different. Another version of the track exists, even if Em admits he doesn’t remember recording it. The early version was brought to his attention as he set about putting together the Shady XV compilation, and he decided to include it on the release. Now, he’s revealed an early listen to the full alternate take.
The demo’s beat is identical to the version we all know, but the difference in the lyrics is apparent from the first verse. Instead of bars about nerves and spaghetti vomit, Eminem spits, “If I was froze inside of a moment/ If I could capture time inside a capsule/ Then I could try to channel it through Cadillacs and Buicks/ And that’s when you hit the roof because you can’t sit through it/ Just lose yourself in this music, this moment.” And that’s just the first verse. Check the whole thing out below.
The double-disc Shady XV will be released on November 24th. Disc one will feature new material from the likes of Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, D-12, and Bad Meets Evil. So far we’ve heard Eminem and Sia’s “Guts Over Fear” and&nbs...

The track's a fuzzed-out intro is a beguiling misdirect; the London outfit soon delve into punk-rock territories and use the squirmy squeal of wavy bass to contort your brain.>
Song : Paradis : Sur Une Chanson En Francais
Nov 20, 2014 11:55am | My Old Kentucky Blog
This coming January will see the release of a new EP from Parisian duo Paradis. Having already garnered over a half-million plays for their previously released EP track “Garde Le Pour Toi”, they are back once more with what we consider to be an even better song “Sur Une Chanson En Francais” highlighted by some stylized, seducing horns, soothing vocals, and casually-paced tempo held throughout. Stream below.
Artist Jesse LeDoux Will Watch Cartoons With You Anytime
Nov 20, 2014 11:50am | CMJ
And not only are the musical surprises aplenty, but this time all the single art and the shmancy box you get to put them in have been created by artist Jesse LeDoux. Known primarily for his work on the early Shins records, LeDoux has gone on to become one of the most recognizable and sought after rock poster artists and more. How much more? Let’s ask him.
So, the basics: where are you from, and how/when did you start as a working artist?
I grew up in the boonies outside Portland, Oregon, trying to spend all my time playing in the woods. But when the weather was lousy, Id stay inside and draw. After high school, I moved to Seattle and got a job at Up Records, developing their website. Ups office was originally in the same building as Sub Pop, which is how I met all the Sub Pop folks, including creative director, Jeff Kleinsmith. Within a year or so, Jeff hired me as the art grunt (scanning images, resizing ads and va...
EXPOSURES: Photos from Pitchfork Paris 2014
Nov 20, 2014 11:50am | Chart Attack
EXPOSURES captures the moods and experiences of fans and artists, both onstage and off.
Kate Killet shot Pitchfork Music Festival for Chart Attack back in July, capturing some of our favourite artists redeeming drink tickets in the Chicago sun, tattoos accessorized with summer dresses. But her festival spirit wasn't dampened by the change of season. For Halloween weekend, she ordered a plane ticket to Paris, grabbed her camera and film, and headed out for the bizarro version of her summer experience: indoor performances, considerably more "bonjours," artists replaced by vampire and skeleton versions of themselves. Check out her photos from Pitchfork Music Festival Paris below.
My home for the Halloween weekend, Pitchfork Paris takes place at Grande Halle de la Villette, a stunning 19th century glass & metal structure that stands in the centre of the Parc de la Villette.

The Bug Vs. Earth Cold
Nov 20, 2014 11:36am | StereoGum
The adventurous producer Kevin Martin, who records as the Bug, has teamed up with Dylan Carlson’s long-running drone-metal project Earth to record The Bug Vs. Earth, a two-song collaborative EP that’ll be out as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday festivities. We’ve already posted “Boa,” their first track together. “Cold” is their second, and it does a nice job displaying how these wildly different entities make sense together. Earth supplies one of its classic windblown spaghetti-western riffs, while the Bug chops it up a bit and adds a huge, thundering beat. This is epic head-nod music, and you can hear it below.

Grooms releasing 'Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair' in February (stream a track)
Nov 20, 2014 11:22am | Brooklyn Vegan

Brooklyn's Grooms underwent a radical lineup change last year with singer/guitarist Travis Johnson remaining as the only original member. With new bassist Jay Heiselmann (who mixed most of their other records) and drummer Steve Levine, the new lineup of Grooms shifted directions, experimenting with synthesizers and krauty grooves. The dissonant guitars are still there, but the new rhythm section seems to have put a fire under them, creatively. The result is a radically different record, Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair, which will be out via Western Vinyl on February 17. A good first taste of the album, "Doctor M," makes its premiere in this post and you can stream it below.
Grooms don't have any live dates announced at the time, but they've practiced at Death by Audio since the days when they were known as Muggabears. Travis played a few Muggabears songs solo the night that Dirty on Purpose reunited, but it would seem strange for Grooms proper not to play DbA before it closes forever in three days.

Watch Action Bronson and Killer Mikes hilarious attempt to battle rap while on treadmills
Nov 20, 2014 11:15am | Cosequence Of Sound
Action Bronsons a pretty busy guy these days, what with his tour de force of a culinary series, Fuck, That’s Delicious, and the prepping of his major label debut, Mr. Wonderful. However, this week Bam Bam’s set aside some time to hit the treadmill to flex not only his muscles, but his spitfire flow in a rap battle for the ages. His fierce challenger? One half of Run The Jewels and all-around badass Atlanta MC, Killer Mike.
Despite the top-notch rap talent on display, the battle a wacky segment taken from the equally absurd Adult Swim program The Eric Andre Show is basically 20% rhymes and 80% heavy breathing, a gentle yet hilarious reminder that running is a damn hard thing to do. Props to Action and Killer Mike, though; I don’t know the last time I stepped foot on a treadmill, let alone while “hella high.”
Watch the funny antics below (via Paste).
Beverly Madora Video
Nov 20, 2014 11:13am | StereoGum
Drew Citron’s indie-pop project Beverly released the debut album Careers earlier this year, and they’ve already made videos for a bunch of its songs: “Honey Do,” “Out On A Ride,” “All The Things,” “Yale’s Life.” And now the Breeders-esque “Madora,” possibly the best Beverly song to date, also has a video. It’s an animated clip in which a little girl rides a big wheel across an increasingly surreal landscape. The whole thing is hand-drawn, which adds a nice tangible quality to all the dreamlike imagery. David Lamain and Martine Rademakers of Alpaca Animation & Sound directed the video. Check it out below.
