Watch Billy Corgans Speech At The Alternative Press Music Awards
Jul 22, 2014 7:54am | StereoGum
Last night in Cleveland, Alternative Press held its first-ever Alternative Press Music Awards show, and it presented its first-ever Vanguard Award, a lifetime-achievement type of thing, to the Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan. At the show, the recently-retired pro wrestler CM Punk (and fellow Chicago contrarian) presented Corgan with the award. And as he accepted the award, Corgan said some very Billy Corgan things: “Over 25 years ago, I made the decision that I was going to push your buttons, or the people that came before you, or the people that came before you. I like to think that Im receiving this in humility because I’m willing to push your buttons, because I’m willing to tell you to go fuck yourself. I didn’t start a band to be anybody’s bitch, I started a band to kick your fucking head in.” Watch the speech below.
George Harrison memorial tree killed by beetles
Jul 22, 2014 7:46am | Fact Magazine
Here comes a real knee-smacker.
A tree planted in an Los Angeles park in memory of George Harrison has been killed by beetles.
Need we say more? Alright then the sapling was planted in Griffith Park in 2004 to commemorate the green-fingered former Beatle, who lived his final days in LA where he transformed the overgrown gardens of his rundown mansion into lush grounds.
The memorial tree had grown to more than 10 feet tall before the fatal infestation of tree beetles, but Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge assured LA Times that a new sapling would be planted in its place.
Next time they should plant a Norwegian Wood, eh! No? Right then. [via CMU]
Surprise! The Raveonettes release new album today! Exclusive interview!
Jul 22, 2014 7:46am | Drowned In Sound
DiS has been long term fans of Danish duo The Raveonettes. In fact, it's fair to say that from the moment first EP Whip It On arrived amidst a hail of feedback and doo-wop harmonies in the summer of 2002, we were fairly smitten. Since then, they've gone on to release six albums, culminating in 2012's Observator. We were a little heavy hearted to hear murmurings toward the end of last year that Observator would probably be their last release.
Imagine our shock and joy then when we get a call from their label asking if we'd be up for a chat about the band's top secret (until today) new album.
The new album is entitled Pe'ahi and is released today (22nd July 2014), with a follow-up provisionally entitled #2 also imminent. Taking their PR up on his offer, DiS' Dom Gourlay quizzed singer, guitarist and songwriter Sune Rose Wagner about what inspired the new record, what he's been up to since Observator, longevity and breaking rules.
Pe'ahi - Album Stream
DiS: What have you been up to since we last spoke during the summer of 2012?
Sune Rose Wagner: I moved house. I was living in New York for ten years but I've been based in Los Angeles for almost two years. I live in the downtown area now but when I first moved I had a house in an area called Mount Washington. It's a really nice area but also kind of boring! And then just same ol...
Listen: Hudson Mohawkes incredible new single Chimes
Jul 22, 2014 7:43am | Cosequence Of Sound
Former TNGHT member Hudson Mohawke will release his new solo EP, Chimes, on September 30th via Warp Records. Spanning four tracks, the record is preceded by its title track, which is now available for download on iTunes. You can also stream it below. Spoiler alert: It’s straight fire.
“Chimes” also soundtracks a new commercial for Apple, which should no doubt please Mohawke’s G.O.O.D. Music boss, Kanye West.
A full-length solo debut from Mohawke, which is reported to feature guest verses from several heavy-hitting rappers, is expected to follow the EP’s release.

Watch Mumdance and Novelist review the weeks singles
Jul 22, 2014 7:43am | Fact Magazine
Mumdance and Novelist tackle this week’s FACT TV Singles Club.
On the regular FACT Singles Club, a team of our reviewers tackle the best and worst of the week’s new music. On FACT TV, however, we put the artists in charge. Mumdance has enjoyed one hell of a banner year (well, year and a half), releasing the excellent Twists & Turns mixtape and contributing to labels like Tectonic and Keysound, while also forming an alliance with London’s Boxed collective. His crowning glory, however, surely comes with ‘Take Time’, a collaboration with young Lewisham MC Novelist that’s amongst 2014′s very best singles.
They rated and slated music by Randomer, Young Thug and more.

George Harrison Tree killed by infestation of, yes, beetles
Jul 22, 2014 6:37am | Cosequence Of Sound
If you’re looking for a real-life example of irony, look no further than the fate of the George Harrison Tree. The 10-foot tall pine, planted in memory of the former Beatle near Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory in 2004, was recently infested by — wait for it — beetles, causing it to die. So to recap, beetles killed The Beatles member’s tree.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the tree will eventually be replanted. In the meantime, the commemorative plaque still remains, greeting visitors with the following message: “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener.” It also includes a quote from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: “For the forest to be green, each tree must be green.”

My Favourite Record: Gary Numan
Jul 22, 2014 6:35am | Fact Magazine
My Favourite Record is a new weekly feature where we ask musicians we rate from across the spectrum to pick their most cherished album – a development of our occasional On Record feature, and a chance to take a peek at the albums that maketh the artist. Today’s entry:
Picked by: Synth-pop pioneer Gary
“This album came along at a time when my own career was all but dead and buried.
I had lost all direction musically and I was floundering. I had no idea how to fix things, how to get my spark back, and then, in 1993, I heard Songs Of Faith And Devotion.
“It had a darkness to it that that took me to places I found fascinating and exciting, and more than a little disturbing. The melodies were beautifully constructed, the lyrics thought provoking and intriguing and the performances, on every level, still send shivers up my spine. The production itself is a work of genius, so multilayered that even after a hundred listens you were still hearing things you hadn’t heard before.
The epic ‘Walking In My Shoes’ I thought for a long time – incorrectly as it turned out – was about a man whose light had faded, someone goi...
All the worst people in music are on Aviciis new album
Jul 22, 2014 6:15am | Fact Magazine
Avicii’s new album is going to be very, very strange.
Not content with dominating the weird world of EDM, the Swedish producer combined big room dance music with bluegrass on his debut album True, and his second album is shaping up to be even more bizarre. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Avicii reveals that he’s collaborating with a rogue’s gallery of artists to rival Paul Oakenfold’s Bunkka (which, for the youngsters amongst you, featured everybody from Hunter S. Thompson to Crazytown’s Shifty Shellshock, plus Tricky and Ice Cube).
Jon Bon Jovi is on board, as are System of a Down’s Serj Tankian and Billie Joe Armstrong, who has collaborated with Avicii on a track titled ‘No Pleasing a Woman’. There’s also a reggae duet with Wyclef Jean and Matisyahu (Avicii “doesn’t know what to do with it yet”) and songs with Chris Martin, who “has been like a brother, and “helps out with [Avicii's] nutritionist.”
“He needs every part to be perfect”, says Avicii of Martin. “I’m not like that”. The jokes write themselves.
Watch: Reggie Watts performs on Conan with members of ZZ Top, Coheed and Cambria
Jul 22, 2014 6:09am | Cosequence Of Sound
Between his day job on Comedy Bang! Bang!, opening duties for the likes of Nick Cave, and guest appearances on long-awaited records, Reggie Watts found the time to record a fresh album of his own. Last night, the multi-talented funny man previewed that upcoming release, an LP entitled Scarves & Cabbages, on Conan. No stranger to odd-couple collaborations, Watts brought along ZZ Tops Billy Gibbons and Coheed and Cambrias Travis Stever for a performance of the delicate ode, “I Once Knew A Horse”. Check the replay below.
Not much is known yet about Scarves & Cabbages, but if the general state of comedy in 2014 is any indication, expect it to be funny as hell. A release date is expected later in the year.
