Anyone that's been keeping up with Tim Barry's solo career knows that the former Avail frontman has left the punk roots of that band behind in favor of old-timey folk. He's got a new album, Lost & Rootless, coming out this Friday (11/28) via The Bouncing Souls' Chunksaah Records (pre-order) and this one's no exception. We've got the premiere of its new single "Solid Gone" which is steeped in the same American folk tradition his pal and fellow punk frontman Chuck Ragan explores in his solo work and on his Revival Tour (which Tim has taken part in). Check out the new song, along with the lyric video for the title track, below.
Tim also has dates coming up in the UK and on the West Coast of the US. Those are also listed below...

Watch Most Of Wu-Tang Clan Reassemble On Letterman
Nov 26, 2014 8:29am | StereoGum
Anytime you go to a Wu-Tang Clan show, it’s always interesting to see how many of the crew’s nine members will actually show up. (The most I’ve ever seen is eight; the least is four.) This apparently holds true even for the group’s late-night TV appearances. While the entire group managed to come through for The Daily Show back in August, the version of the Wu that appeared on Letterman was notably missing Raekwon and GZA. Still, the Wu-Tang Clan knows what to do onstage even when they’re down a couple of guys. On the show, the group performed “Ruckus In B Minor,” the single from their new album A Better Tomorrow. And even the song is, but the crew’s ridiculously high standards, a bit underwhelming, these guys are all 20-year pros who know how to hold a stage and play off of each other. It’s always fun to watch them go off, and you can see it happen below.
Drake rumored to be prepping new mixtape for January
Nov 26, 2014 8:29am | Fact Magazine
Could Drake’s follow-up to the acclaimed So Far Gone mixtape be just around the corner?
It’s been widely speculated that Drake’s next album – entitled Views from the 6 is set for a Spring 2015 release, but apart from a few leaked tracks (blame hackers, apparently) we’ve heard little else. That is, until now.
Toronto Raptors player DeMar DeRozan spilled the beans last night in an NBA TV interviewer, and while talking about Drake’s role as the team’s global ambassador, gave away a juicy piece of new information.
I talked to him the other night, actually he said he wanted to give me his mixtape that come out in January, DeRozan stated, hinting that that the follow-up to his breakthrough 2009 tape So Far Gone will be out in the new year. [via Stereogum]

In addition to his work on the Inherent Vice score and soundtrack, Jonny Greenwood has been focusing on his classical music. He recently worked with the Australian Chamber Orchestra on his new work “Water” and performed with the London Contemporary Orchestra last month at Manchester’s Albert Hall. During the performance, he plays some bits of his score for There Will Be Blood and The Master and sneaks in a few new pieces as well. The performance is streaming live on a loop for a limited time, and you can watch it below while it lasts.
Wu-Tang Clan performs Ruckus in B Minor on Letterman watch
Nov 26, 2014 8:17am | Cosequence Of Sound
Earlier this year, Wu-Tang Clan announced plans to commemorate its 20th anniversary with a new album, A Better Tomorrow, the collective’s first since 2007’s 8 Diagrams. In the months that followed, a feud broke out between two of the crew’s biggest members, RZA and Raekwon, that threatened to capsize those plans. Fortunately, the pair made peace, and Wu collectively set to work promoting the LP with an August appearance on The Daily Show.
Now, with less than week to go before the record’s December 2nd release date, Staten Island’s finest made just their second, post-reunion television appearance with a stop to Tuesday’s Late Show with David Letterman. Though without three core members in Ghostface Killhah, Raekwon, and GZA, Wu-Tang still managed to deliver an impressive performance of “Ruckus in B Minor”. Watch the replay below.

Watch a collaboration between Dirty Threes Jim White and lute player George Xylouris
Nov 26, 2014 8:06am | Fact Magazine
Xylouris White is the collaboration between Greek lute player George Xylouris and Dirty Three percussionist Jim White.
Their debut album Goats, which was incidentally produced by Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, appeared earlier this fall on the esteemed Other Music Recording Co. imprint and has been rapturously received. A hero in his native Crete, Xylouris takes the folk music that pushed him into the spotlight and juxtaposes it with White’s unmistakable percussive twists and turns.
This particular video, for the album highlight ‘Chicken Song’, was put together by director Jem Cohen to celebrate the fact that the duo are currently traipsing throughout the world on tour. Take a look at the dates below.

New Drake Mixtape Coming In January?
Nov 26, 2014 8:02am | StereoGum
Just last month, Drake dropped three new tracks on the internet that he “knew some hackers had,” but it looks like he could be planning something a bit bigger in between now and the release of his next album, Views From The 6. (Per some lyrics on “0 to 100,” that’s expected to come out in the spring.) As MissInfo points out, Toronto Raptors player DeMar DeRozan was interviewed on NBA TV last night and talked about Drake’s role as the team’s global ambassador. “I talked to him the other night, actually he said he wanted to give me his mixtape that come out in January,” DeRozan revealed. You can watch DeRozan possibly spill the beans at the 5:10 mark in the interview below.
Download New Jamie xx, Four Tet, Koreless, & John Talabot Tracks From Sofia Mattiolis Continuum Score
Nov 26, 2014 8:00am | StereoGum
Earlier this year, the British artist Sofi Mattioli worked with Jamie xx to make a conceptual music video for his “Sleep Sound” single, filming people dancing to the song at the Manchester Deaf Centre. Mattioli, along with her longtime collaborator Rebecca Salvadori, has just made a new short film called Continuum, and she’s called on Jamie xx and some of his electronic music contemporaries to help her out with it. Jamie xx, Four Tet, Koreless, and John Talabot have all recorded new pieces of music for Continuum. Each of the pieces — respectively, “Sunrise,” “Dew,” “Horizon,” and “Aim” — is exactly two minutes long. Each of them gets a segment of the short film. Below, watch the film and download all four tracks.
Lorde dazzles Fallon with Yellow Flicker Beat watch
Nov 26, 2014 7:56am | Cosequence Of Sound
Lorde didn’t release an album in 2014, but her job curating the latest Hunger Games soundtrack has kept more than busy. Not only did she round up A-list talent (Kanye West, HAIM, CHVRCHES, Miguel, Charli XCX, Q-Tip, Pusha T, and The Chemical Brothers) and feature on a number of its tracks, but the New Zealand pop star even contributed her own original single, “Yellow Flicker Beat”.
To coincide with the theatrical release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, Lorde stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to perform “Yellow Flicker Beat”. Not unlike her appearance on Sunday’s American Music Awards, the late night performance was dazzling from start to finish.
She also sat down with Fallon to discuss her relationship with Taylor Swift, the story behind her stage name, recording “Royals”, and more. Catch the replay below.

Watch Lorde Talk About The First Time She Met Taylor Swift, Perform Yellow Flicker Beat On Fallon
Nov 26, 2014 7:41am | StereoGum
Fresh off a performance at the American Music Awards and the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde was interviewed and performed on Jimmy Fallon last night. She talked about the first time she met Taylor Swift at a Shake Shack in New York, that time she pretended to be Swift’s manager at a Grammys pre-show party, and how she came up with the name Lorde. (Bill O’Reilly — the other guest for the night — looks on suspiciously the whole time.) After the interview, she performed “Yellow Flicker Beat,” which was her second time on The Tonight Show stage after she made her TV debut there with “Royals” last year. Watch the interview and performance below.

stream Anwar Sadat's 'Obedience' EP in full
Nov 26, 2014 7:30am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Rob Sperry-Fromm
Last week we told you about the new Anwar Sadat EP, Obedience. After sharing the new song "Rotted Out", we're now pleased to premiere a stream of the full EP, which is out next week (12/2) via Sick Room Records.
Obedience marks a continued step forward for these noisy post-punks after their strong 2013 LP Gold. The elastic baselines, cacophonous drumming and screeching guitar lines are still on display as their musicianship continues to develop. All the riffs on Obedience stick in your head long after the first listen, and the ground these guys cover over a mere four tracks is pretty impressive.
As mentioned Anwar Sadat start their tour this weekend, and will hit NYC soon, playng Shea Stadium on 12/13 with Tropical Trash, Bad Behavior, and Chat Logs.
Listen to Obedience below...
