Song : Dan Lissvik : Airwalk
Jan 27, 2015 9:42am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Prior to that, he will be unveiling a series of 12″ with the first out on February 10th titled Shuvit!. The A-side is this chill-out, disco-infused song “Airwalk”. You can stream it below.

Heres why Tom Petty wont win a Grammy for Sam Smiths Stay With Me
Jan 27, 2015 9:39am | Cosequence Of Sound

As previously reported, Sam Smith has given co-songwriting credits of his hit song Stay With Me to Tom Petty and ELO’s Jeff Lynne. The concession came after similarities between the song’s chorus and that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Full Moon Fever classic I Wont Back Down were noticed by the older song’s publishers. Though Smith maintains “the likeness was a complete coincidence,” the parties amicably settled out of court, with Petty and Lynne gaining a 12.5% writing credit.

The question that arises from the settlement is whether or not the newly added co-writers would receive golden gramophones should “Stay With Me” win the 2015 Grammy Awards for Best Pop Performance and Record of the Year. Well, the Senior Vice President of Awards for the Grammys, Bill Freimuth, has now provided an answer to the Wall Street Journal. In short: No, but they wouldn’t walk away empty handed.

“Since Lynne and Petty did not do any new writing for this work, we are considering their original work to have been interpolated by Napier, Phillips, and Smith for Stay With Me’, Freimuth said. Lynne and Petty will not be considered nominees nor will they be considered GRAMMY recipients, should the song win. Rather, they would be given certificates to honor their participation in the work, just as any other writers of sampled or in...

Hear Two Songs From Migos And Bobby Shurmdas Shmigo Gang Mixtape
Jan 27, 2015 9:38am | StereoGum

Even though Bobby Shmurda is still in jail, that hasn’t stopped him from rapping. In fact, two new songs from his forthcoming joint mixtape with Migos Shmigo Gang just emerged today. “Computers (Freestyle)” features messages recorded by Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel from behind bars, and “What You Talmbout” is a Rich The Kid track that Shmurda produced. No word yet regarding an official release date for the project, which is certainly delayed due to Shmurda’s impending trial. Listen to both songs below.


Four Tet & Eminative Makondi (Don Cherry & Ed Blackwell Cover)
Jan 27, 2015 9:33am | StereoGum

Yesterday, the way-out electronic-music great Kieran Hebden, better known as Four Tet, released a whole surprise album of music he’d recorded under his Percussions alias. He does not appear to be slowing down. Today, he’s got a new song. Nick Woodmansey, the British jazz drummer who records as Emanative, has but together The Light Years Of The Darkness, a compilation that pays tribute to the late percussionist and Four Tet collaborator Steve Reid. And along with Four Tet, he’s recorded a tingly and insistent interpretation of “Makondi,” a 1982 piece from the jazz greats Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell. Listen to their collaboration below.

Dan Lissvik of Studio releasing solo singles (listen), plans LP
Jan 27, 2015 9:23am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Swedish balearic revivalists Studio called it quits in 2012, with Rasmus Hägg and Dan Lissvik going their separate ways. Lissvik has been the more visible of the two, producing albums by Young Galaxy and Taken by Trees, as well as lots of remix work. Dan is getting back into making his own music and is planning a series of 12" singles and EPs, leading up to an album in late 2015. The first of those, Shuvit!, will be out February 10 via Smalltown Supersound. You can stream "Airwalk," which sounds very Studio-like, below....

The track surfaces as part of a charity compilation.

Four Tet has teamed with Emanative (aka percussionist Nick Woodmansey) for a cover of Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell’s 1982 song ‘Makoni’. Four Tet plays thumb piano on the song, which appears on Emanative’s The Light Years Of The Darkness, an album released to benefit the Steve Reid Foundation.

Stream the song below and head to Bandcamp to pick up the entire compilation. Four Tet recently released 2011-2014, a full-length album cataloging his work under the Percussions alias.

Zola Jesus performs Nail on Brooklyn street during winter storm watch
Jan 27, 2015 9:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

Winter Storm Juno pummeled parts of the Northeast last night, forcing the cancellation of thousands of flights and compelling officials to impose statewide travel bans. Still, singer Nika Danilova, aka Zola Jesus, forged on with her scheduled concert at Brooklyn’s St. Vitus, moving up the show time in order to avoid the brunt of Juno’s impact.

At one point during her set, Danilova took her music to the streets — literally — where she performed the Taiga highlight “Nail” as strong winds and snow swirled around her. As frigid and blustery as her “stage” was, it’s one that strangely fits Zola Jesus’ brooding music and chilling vocals, which often soar like sirens warning of the impending apocalypse. (For what it’s worth, one of the best Zola Jesus sets I’ve ever seen was during a torrential thunderstorm on Randall’s Island.) Watch fan-shot footage of her “Nail” performance below.

wish i could only play in snowstorms

Avi Buffalo Break Up
Jan 27, 2015 9:17am | StereoGum

The Long Beach, California band Avi Buffalo, led by Avi Zahner-Isenberg, released their long-awaited sophomore album At Best Cuckold in September of last year, and a week ago we premiered a video for the song “Think It’s Gonna Happen Again.” As the blog Kicking The Habit points out, the band announced that they’re calling it quits last night via Facebook. Zahner-Isenberg details the reasons behind the breakup in a fairly lengthy status update:


Travi$ Scott Nothing But Net (Feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR & Young Thug) & High Fashion (Feat. Future)
Jan 27, 2015 9:16am | StereoGum

The young Houston rapper and producer Travi$ Scott is as much a curator as anything else, and his 2014 mixtape Days Before Rodeo showed that he knows what he’s doing on that score. Stereogum readers seemed remarkably pissed that I didn’t name it Mixtape Of The Week or put it on my list of the year’s best rap albums, so the guy’s got an audience. Scott just announced an American tour with Young Thug and Metro Boomin, and he’s also shared a couple of songs that bring him together with some other looming rap figures. On “Nothing But Net,” he teams up with Thug and with the rising Drake protege PARTYNEXTDOOR. And on “High Fashion,” he gets together with Future, the guy basically gave him his “straight up” ad-lib. They’re both squirming, nervous, uneasy Southern rap bangers, and you can hear both below.


Death Cab playing MHOW with Say Hi on Wednesday
Jan 27, 2015 9:09am | Brooklyn Vegan

Death Cab for Cutie announced a tour with The Antlers yesterday that includes some pretty big venues and none in NYC. However, now they've added a NYC show, and it's a very small one happening TOMORROW: January 28 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Rather than The Antlers, this one is with Say Hi, who are currently on Death Cab's former home of Barsuk Records. Tickets go on sale at noon today (1/27).

Death Cab's new album, Kintsugi, comes out March 31 via Atlantic. Listen to lead single "Black Sun," with their updated list of dates, below...

Four Tet premieres new song Makondi listen
Jan 27, 2015 9:05am | Cosequence Of Sound

Less than 24 hours after releasing a best-of compilation under his Percussions moniker, Kieran Hebden returns today with new music from Four Tet. Entitled “Makondi”, it sees the DJ/producer teaming with British drummer Nick Woodmansey, aka Emanative, to re-interpret the titular 1982 single from jazz greats Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell. It’s a lithe and deeply rhythmic tune that blurs the lines between folk, tribal music, and freestyle jazz. Listen in below.

“Makondi” is off a new tribute album called Light Years of Darkness, a tribute album commemorating the legacy of late drummer Steve Reid. It’s available now via Emanative’s BandCamp page.

Ultimate Painting Riverside Video
Jan 27, 2015 9:02am | StereoGum

UK duo Ultimate Painting have shared a video for “Riverside,” a wobbly, daydream-like track off of last year’s self-titled debut. The video is made up of some home video-esque shots of a father and son, but it’s a little more heady than it appears. Director Elizabeth Skadden explains: “I was inspired by the theme of autonomy within the song to create this piece featuring a small child testing his independence on a day out with his single father. Shot on discontinued super 8 film, the pair wake up and have a run around a cemetery before dad carries our protagonist back home. We see the son riding a park train all by himself in the organ break, foreshadowing his future autonomous self.” Watch below.

Father John Misty streaming new album I Love You, Honeybear on his new digital music platform
Jan 27, 2015 8:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

Never one to do things by the book, J. Tillman is taking a different approach when it comes to streaming the latest album from Father John Misty. Rather than make it available through traditional mediums such as NPR or iTunes, Tillman has “invented” his very own “digital music streaming service.”

It’s called SAP (short for Streamline Audio Protocol) and, as Tillman explains, it’s goal is to “prevent anyone from spending money ever.” He writes, “As an artist, it has been thrilling to see how a decade or so of increasingly free music on the internet has facilitated a veritable anarchic consumer utopia for fans of sharing, rating, discovering and music. Within the last year or so, I started to ask myself a question: We all know free is great for the fans, but how can we extend this freedom to artists as well? Is there a way to ensure that no one, artist or fan, ever has to spend, or lose, any money on music ever?”

Here’s how it “works”: Albums are “‘sapped’ of their performances, original vocal, atmosphere and other distracting affectations so the consumer can decide quickly and efficiently whether they like a musical composition, based strictly on its formal attributes, enough to spend money on it. SAP files sound incredible when compressed and streamed at low resolutions over any laptop speaker or cell phone. They are cheap to produce and take up even less...
