Download Run The Jewels RTJ2
Oct 24, 2014 2:27am | StereoGum

RTJ2, the second album from the Killer Mike/El-P rap juggernaut Run The Jewels, was not supposed to come out until Monday. But El suddenly dropped the free-download album, a legitimate contender for Album Of The Year, two hours ago, in the middle of the fucking effing night. (Maybe he wanted to make sure you’d get to hear it before ebola overtakes New York?) The album pushes what these two were doing on their amazing self-titled debut even further, and it will absolutely hurt your brain from the opening seconds on. It is just a beast of a thing. We’ve posted the early songs “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry,” and the Zack De La Rocha collab “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck).” And right now, you can, and absolutely should, download the whole thing right here.

Just call in sick to work tomorrow and just let this thing rip your whole shit up completely. You deserve it. Let’s talk about this thing in the comments section.





Album Stream: Twilight Sad's 10/10-awarded masterpiece Nobody...
Oct 24, 2014 2:19am | Drowned In Sound

To say that DiS loves gloom-shattering Scot's The Twilight Sad, would be a bit of an understatement.

Call us predictable, but a bunch of world-weary men making euphoric, intense, melodic, poetic and late-late-night dark-night-of-the-soul shoegaze gone rogue-pop is 'music we like' in a nutshell. Throw in the fact that they have that exotic (to my South Coast dwelling ears anyway) Scottish burr, and you've got the recipe for a band we love. And since their incredible debut LP seven years we've championed the band, inviting them to perform whenever we're asked to curate a festival stage or book a show, and now they've delivered a new record to further underscore why we - and so many of our readers - adore their hefty 'rock'.

With their new album, Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave, our love has turned into that dangerous kind of love. In fact, restraining orders may be in order, as Dan Lucas has awarded their new album 10/10 and our editor (er, that's me!) thinks this dark-hearted opus should be an eleven outta ten, placing the band up there in the DiS canon with The National, PJ Harvey and Deftones.

In his review, Dan said:

The Twilight Sad gave birth to one of the greatest British debut albums in living memory. That was in 2007 and just seven years later theyve given us an indication that they could attain greatness on a par with MBV or The Jesus and Mary Chain. Hell, carry on like this and well be comparing t...

Skrillexs Chicago show leaves sixteen fans hospitalised
Oct 23, 2014 11:56pm | Fact Magazine

Most of those taken to hospital received treatment for drug overdose.

A total of sixteen people were transported to hospital from a Skrillex show in Chicago last weekend continuing a worrying trend at large US EDM events. An Emergency Medical Services source confirmed this week that the majority of transports were the result of drug overdoses. Several of those transported were taken to children’s hospitals due to being under age.

“The policy in Chicago has been to take anyone who presents to the hospital,” said Andrew Bazos, who oversaw safety for the concerts promoter. “Were there for people who havent been smart, and safety is number one.”

Bazos claimed that “If their parents were there, they would have gone home with their parents… Its not fair to make the promoter take care of kids who dont know how to behave. … Theyre young, and theyre often irresponsible.”

A total of 10,000 people attended the event held at Chicago’s Navy Pier.

Ebola scare hits New Yorks CMJ Music Marathon
Oct 23, 2014 11:20pm | Fact Magazine

Man diagnosed with the virus had been at The Gutter venue in Brooklyn.

New York City has confirmed its first Ebola case in a man who attended a show as part of this week’s CMJ Music Marathon. Dr. Craig Spencer attended Williamsburg venue The Gutter on Wednesday night (October 22) and was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center yesterday suffering from a high fever, where he later tested positive for the disease.

Last nights Goodnight Records showcase at the Gutter (featuring performances from Heaven, Big Sleep, Friend Roulette, and Sun Club) was cancelled as a result of the news. Initial reports in the New York Times suggested that Dr Spencer, who had recently returned from Guinea where he was working with Doctors Without Borders to combat the Ebola outbreak, had been at the Brooklyn Bowl as well, but officials have confirmed that he only attended The Gutter.

The NYC Department Of Health said it had begun “to actively trace all of the patients contacts to identify anyone who may be at potential risk,” but the message seems to be that anyone who was at The Gutter on Wednesday shouldn’t panic. At a press conference last night, Mayor Bill de Blasio said: Our understanding is that very few people were in direct contact with him.” [via Stereogum]

On Saturday night, Skrillex performed a concert at Navy Pier in Chicago. According to NBC Chicago, a number of attendees suffered drug overdoses and were transported to area hospitals.

Of the 16 individuals hospitalized, several were underage and taken to children’s hospitals. In an interview with NBC Chicago, Andrew Bazos, who oversaw safety for the concert’s promoter, said, “If their parents were there, they would have gone home with their parents … Its not fair to make the promoter take care of kids who dont know how to behave. … Theyre young, and theyre often irresponsible.”

In recent months, several EDM concerts have experienced similar problems with drug overdoses. Two attendees died at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, and 118 fans at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival needed medical attention. Meanwhile, a Avicii concert in Toronto left nearly 30 attendees hospitalized.

The Gutter bowling alley issues ebola statement (while Brooklyn Bowl repeats "not us")
Oct 23, 2014 10:45pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Despite official confirmation that it was Williamsburg bowling alley and music venue The Gutter, many still think and are reporting (officially or to their friends on Twitter), that the 1st New Yorker to have ebola went to Williamsburg bowling alley and music venue Brooklyn Bowl. Questlove is DJing Brooklyn Bowl tonight and posted this message to Instagram:

Don't believe the hype. We are open. #BowlTrain bowling alley mentioned was another alley not @BrooklynBowl. (Side note on the real we should stop the mindless panic and pray for the brother's recovery and health, we can do better than ignint comments NYC)
Meanhile, the Gutter (where CMJ shows were cancelled tonight), has finally broken its silence with this statement:
To all our customers, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
We've been in constant contact with the health department and they have determined that there was no risk to our customers.
Closing today was simply a precautionary measure.
I'm not sure if there was an event at The Gutter last night, but regardless, as a CNN reporter quickly figured out, bellabellejane was not also there.
