Raspberry Bulbs announce new LP, share a track (listen)
Sep 22, 2014 10:19am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

This past march, raging punks Raspberry Bulbs played new material at Baby's All Right that they said would be on a new full length coming this fall. It's now been announced that their sophomore LP, Privacy, will be released November 15 via Blackest Ever Black and the new single "Light Surrounds Me" is out now. It's in a similar raw, killer vein to their 2013 debut, Deformed Worship, and it might just be exactly the jolt of energy you need on this Monday morning. Check it out, with the tracklist, below.

Song : Cepasa : But You Dont Know
Sep 22, 2014 10:14am | My Old Kentucky Blog

“But You Don’t Know” is the latest song from Ukrainian producer Pavel Lenchenko, known under the name Cepasa. The fluttering percussion and looping piano create necessary tension to really pull in the modified vocals. The song is precisely composed emotional electronic pop, nothing groundbreaking, but exceptional nonetheless. Stream below.

Dream Police (mem The Men) streaming a track from debut LP, add dates including release show at Vitus & tour w/ Honey
Sep 22, 2014 10:07am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

We already posted two upcoming NYC shows for Brooklyn's Dream Police, another project of Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi of The Men, and now a third's been announced. So has a tour (that doesn't hit NYC) with another intriguing Brooklyn band, Honey (mems Psychic Ills, Amen Dunes, Stupid Party). In addition to Dream Police's sold-out David Lynch Foundation benefit at Saint Vitus on 9/25 with Earth and Cult of Youth, and the Sacred Bones CMJ showcase at Trans-Pecos on 10/24 with Moon Duo, Amen Dunes and Marissa Nadler (tickets), Dream Police will play a release show for their debut LP on November 8 at Saint Vitus. Ticket info coming soon. All dates are listed below.

Dream Police have also put out the first single/title track from the album, "Hyponotized," which, as the LP teaser suggested, is a more experimental affair than The Men's recent output. It brings brooding post-punk, bright synths, and riffy guitars together for a truly interesting mix. Check it out below. The LP is due out November 11 via Sacred Bones.

Watch Kanye Perform With Common In Surprise AAHH! Fest Appearance
Sep 22, 2014 10:06am | StereoGum

Over the weekend, Chicago rap icon Common headlined AAHH! Fest, a rap festival in his hometown. Or anyway, Common was billed as the headliner. Things didn’t really work out that way. The festival, which Common curated, also featured appearances from Dave Chappelle, Jay Electronica, Lupe Fiasco, and De La Soul. And Kanye West, who apparently everyone knew would be a surprise guest, came through to do a full 16-song greatest-hits performance. Consequence Of Sound reports that Kanye brought Common, Jay Elec, and Vince Staples to the stage when he performed “Clique,” but no video of that performance has yet made it to the internet, and I haven’t been able to figure out whether those guys actually rapped on “Clique” or what. Also of note: Someone crowdsurfed in a wheelchair while Kanye was on; that’s what’s happening in that video. Below, you can check out fan-made video of Kanye and Common doing the College Dropout oldie “Get ’Em High” together. (Warning, though: You can’t hear much of anything.)

Andy Stott Violence
Sep 22, 2014 9:56am | StereoGum

Manchester producer Andy Stott has been making music for about a decade, but he truly found his voice with a pair of grim and dubby EPs in 2011. Then, more importantly, he found another voice. Pairing with opera singer Alison Skidmore, Stott crafted 2012′s Luxury Problems, a breakthrough in every possible way. Though he did work Millie & Andrea, this year’s fun, jungle-heavy side project with Demdike Stare’s Miles Whittaker, we’ve only just now gotten the news that Stott will return with the follow-up to his career defining album. Faith In Strangers (which once again includes contributions from Skidmore) will be out this November, and from the first single there’s a lot to be excited about. “Violence” is a hugely spacious track that sounds miles away from the claustrophobia of something like “Numb.” If anything, however, Stott’s production has only become more aggressive and atmospheric, as “Violence” gradually introduces crushingly heavy beats that sound as sharp as razor blades. Listen to it below.


Leonardo DiCaprio raps A Tribe Called Quests Scenario watch
Sep 22, 2014 9:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

Leonardo DiCaprio delivered his latest Academy Award-esque performance in Los Angeles last week. As TMZ points out, the actor gave his best Phife Daw impersonation by rapping the first verse of A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario” during a birthday party celebrating club promoter Richie Akiva.

According to sources close to the scene, DiCaprio was researching for his role in the upcoming crossover biopic, A Tribe Called Quest: I’m Still Here, which will be shooting simultaneously as The Departed II: Staff Sergeant Dignam Goes to Vegas. Look for it in theaters never.

Q&A: John Waters On Using Musicians As Actors
Sep 22, 2014 9:50am | CMJ

John Waters, 2014 – Photo by Sean DiSerio

Baltimores favorite black sheep, director John Waters, is well known for his transgressive films—who wouldve thought when Hairspray first came out it would end up being a Broadway musical “mom thing” years later? The recent, brain-blowing Film Society of Lincoln Center full retrospective of his work (most of it screened on actual film stock from Waters’ own collection) revealed just how out this cat was in the late sixties. Most notably in Multiple Maniacs and Eat Your Makeup, Waters utilized extremely violent editing and embraced the grimiest edges of his sleazy locations (i.e. his crap apartment, garbage-strewn Baltimore alleys, or his parents suburban backyard). His crude humor was not only a decade-plus ahead of the most underground flicks of the ’80s (when Waters was off in Hollywood making subversive mid-budget comedies), but continues to be a low-brow high water mark for aspiring offenders today.

But whats less heralded is the amazing music Waters always slips into his flicks. Digging up lost, bizarre novelty nuggets or creating new goof-tunes himself, Waters is on a Crampsian plane of deep, weirdo-sounds knowledge. Plus, hes gone and grabbed some of his favorite musicians to be in his films. We caught Waters on the phone (were hoping it was a big pink landline with a springy chord) in the after-glow of the Lincoln Center events ...

Watch The Black Keys Cover Edwyn Collins A Girl Like You
Sep 22, 2014 9:44am | StereoGum

Since embarking on their latest U.S. tour at the beginning of this month, the Black Keys have been covering Edwyn Collins’ early ’90s hit “A Girl Like You.” Collins’ punchy instrumentation on the orgiinal almost sounds like a proto-Black Keys production, so it didn’t take much tinkering for the group to adapt the song to their live set. Watch video from a recent Columbus, Ohio tour stop below.


Kissing Is A Crime Crown Royal (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 22, 2014 9:43am | StereoGum

Among Matt Molnar’s previous projects is Friends, the Samantha Urbani-fronted New York metropolitan pop Band To Watch that seemed to be on the verge of a big breakthrough before apparently dissolving last year. Lately, besides loaning his practice space out to DIIV, Molnar has been working on a new group called Kissing Is A Crime. The band’s self-titled EP is out next month, and “Crown Royal” is its lead single and opening track. The song shimmers as it grooves along, its simple, steady percussive loop giving way to brash live drums and very pretty less-is-more guitar work. Pleasingly, the lead vocal reminds me of Billy Corgan, especially on the line, “I’d sell my soul/ For a taste of you/ A kiss, a kiss, a kiss/ Your cherry lips.” Hear “Crown Royal” below.

Iceage Glassy Eyed, Dormant And Veiled
Sep 22, 2014 9:35am | StereoGum

On their upcoming Plowing Into The Field Of Love, Danish punks Iceage show what happens when they pour all the sneering dull-blade brutality of their previous post-punk/hardcore incarnation into jangly Mekons roots-punk. The results so far have been fascinating, and new single “Glassy Eyed, Dormant And Veiled” continues to challenge our ideas of what Iceage can be — an ominous, shapeshifting piece of work that somehow synthesizes chiming acoustic guitars, machine-gun drums, and eerie horn parts into something coherent. It’s bizarre and unsettling, like listening to a cowboy turn into a werewolf. Hear it below.

Pink Floyd Reveal The Endless River Details
Sep 22, 2014 9:32am | StereoGum

For their first album in more than two decades, it appears that Pink Floyd are going full art-rock. We learned over the summer that the band was planning to release The Endless River, the follow-up to 1993′s The Division Bell, this year. And today, the band revealed the details of the album. It’s a four-sided mostly-instrumental double-LP, though one song, “Louder Than Words,” has lyrics from David Gilmour’s wife Polly Samson. According to the band, it works as a sort of tribute to multi-instrumentalist Richard Wright, who died of cancer in 2008. The band used music they’d recorded during the Division Bell sessions as a starting point, and Wright’s playing is on the album. Gilmour co-produced Endless River with Phil Manzanera, Youth, and Andy Jackson. Below, check out the tracklist and some words from Gilmour and Nick Mason.
