Stream Sisyphus Sisyphus
Mar 7, 2014 10:43am | StereoGum
When we first heard s / s / s two years ago, it seemed like a goofy one-off. But against all expectations, Sufjan Steves, Son Lux, and Serengeti have decided (with the improved new name of Sisyphus) to follow through and release a full-length of their anxious experimental hip-hop. If you’ve been following the recent singles like “Alcohol” and “Rhythm Of Devotion” you’ll know these songs are all about menace and aggression — something the full album explores even further. Listen below.

Wes Anderson soundtrack box set coming in 2014
Mar 7, 2014 10:41am | Fact Magazine
Nico, Love, The Clash and more collected in bumper package.
A box set of soundtracks from the movies of tweedy cult director Wes Anderson is on its way this year, following the release of his latest picture, The Grand Budapest Hotel.
The release celebrates the long-running collaboration between Anderson and his music supervisor Randall Poster, who has worked with the American director since his debut feature, 1996′s Bottle Rocket.
Due out on ABKCO Records, the box set will include 10 soundtracks, including Seu Jorge’s Portugese language reworkings of David Bowie songs for The Life Aquatic.
The news popped up in Rolling Stone’s interview with Poster, who picked seven of his favourite musical moments in Anderson movies, including Love’s ‘Alone Again Or’ from Bottle Rocket and The Clash’s ‘Police And Thieves’ from The Royal Tenenbaums.
Last year U.S. record label American Laundromat put together a tribute to Anderson featuring songs from his films covered by the likes of Black Francis, Kristin Hersh of Throwing Muses and Matt Pond.
Just for kicks:

Nightwave‘s records have been getting heavier and heavier of late, and Hit It – a new EP featuring ghetto-house legend DJ Deeon – is one of her hardest-hitting yet.
Released on April 7, we’re premiering the EP’s second track, ‘Fire Hoes’. It’s a straight-down-the-line banger, and fans of Nightwave’s womping edit of Pharrell and Twista’s ‘Give It Up’ should be all over it. Stream it below, and toast ‘Hit It’ at the record’s launch party at Glasgow’s La Cheetah on April 4.
Earlier this week, DJ Deeon, Parris Mitchell, Bok Bok and more contributed to the Oral History of Dance Mania on FACT.
Morrisseys New Album Is Called World Peace Is None Of Your Business
Mar 7, 2014 10:33am | StereoGum
Besides being treated to some of Morrissey’s trademark vitriol regarding hot topics royals and animals, so far this year we’ve heard about the 2013 beef king’s plans to write a novel, tour the United States, and release a new album on Harvest Records. Today he’s released official details on the latter: According to a post on Morrissey fan site True To You, his first LP since 2009′s Years Of Refusal is called World Peace Is None Of Your Business and will be out in late June or early July. Reports True To You, “Morrissey is said to be ’beyond ecstatic’ with the album, all 12 tracks of which were produced by Joe Chiccarelli in France.” Here’s to a Moz album title every bit as curmudgeonly as we could have hoped, and here’s hoping we hear some of it soon.
Frank Ocean, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, & Diplo Write A Song For Converse
Mar 7, 2014 10:32am | StereoGum
Converse do a good job of integrating their brand among music types. If you’re at SXSW next week, for instance, you will see no shortage of One-Star logos plastered across Austin. (You probably have a reasonable chance of going home with a free pair of Chucks or two, honestly.) Anyway, the sneaker company will head into SXSW with some self-financed buzz, in the form of the new installment of their Three Artists One Song series. The new track has been written and recorded by none other than Frank Ocean, Diplo, Paul Simonon, and Mick Jones. Technically four artists, although Simonon and Jones here are presumably just lumped together as the Clash. (Still technically four artists.) The song drops on Monday, which you can confirm over at Converse’s Tumblr, although there’s no more information there than you’ve already got right here.

Flume at FYF Fest 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
Australian producer Flume has been posting studio pics which hopefully means we'll soon get a followup to his 2012 self-titled debut. But what we do know for sure is he'll be coming to North & South America soon for Lollapalooza Chile/Brazil and Coachella, and after that he'll be playing a few club dates including NYC at Highline Ballroom on April 14. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
All dates are listed, with a video, below...

Listen: Kendrick Lamar and Tame Impalas new song Backwards
Mar 7, 2014 10:13am | Cosequence Of Sound
What’s likely one of the most anticipated tracks off the star-studded Divergent soundtrack has finally been unveiled. Even with Kendrick Lamars recent infatuation with Imagine Dragons and indie-rock, his collaboration with Aussie psych-rockers Tame Impala still seems right out of left field. Bust as he did with the “Radioactive (Remix)”, Kendrick proves he’s a force to be reckoned with no matter the setting.
“Backwards”, an updated version of Tame Impala’s own “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards”, begins with an all-out assault from K-Dot, as he rallies his troops with a series of battle cries. Meanwhile, Tame Impala’s radiant soundscapes have been fleshed out by a lush string section.
Listen to the track and the rest of the Divergent soundtrack at Pitchfork. The soundtrack is due out on March 11th. The film hits theaters on March 21st.

Holly MacGibbon and Andy Simmons form two halves of this dreamy
synth outfit. But dont get them confused with the
analogously-named, but completely unrelated, The Weeknd. Unlike
that raunchy hip-hop musician, Weeknight veer towards tamer subject
matter with more tranquil tones, giving you more work-appropriate
music to round out every day of your calendar.
Listen: Bry Webb continues his solo project with AM Blues amid Constantines reunion
Mar 7, 2014 10:06am | Chart Attack
In the Constantines recent reunion letter, frontman Bry Webb wrote: I thought I was old when we started the band. Twenty One, facing growing up, and trying to preserve some youth in songs In a lot of ways, the eleven years that we were active as a band was a suspended adolescence. The Guelph singer may be reclaiming that adolescence, which had too much life…t o only exist in the past, but hes continuing the grapple with fatherhood and grown-up responsibility he started on his NPR-friendly 2012 solo album, Provider, with his upcoming sophomore album Free Will and its first single, AM Blues.
Webbs gruff voice, a powerful growl in the beloved Constantines, becomes a weary croon over the countrified shuffle of Blues, again showing off his versatility as an ex (and current) punk songwriter as a symphony of guitar feedback creeps in before the final chorus without ever overwhelming it. Listen to the song below, then check out an album trailer directed by Colin Medley. And have a listen to a 50 second preview of the bonus track “Someplace I’m Supposed To Be” on – yup - This American Life.
Bry Webb’s new solo album Free Will comes out May 20 on Idée Fixe. Catch the Constantines at Toronto’s Field Trip festival on June 7/8.

London clubs back campaign to end sexual harassment on nights out
Mar 7, 2014 10:02am | Fact Magazine
As anyone who’s experienced it can attest, sexual harassment on the dancefloor is not only incredibly annoying and occasionally threatening, it’s also commonplace.
So annoying and commonplace, in fact, that London venues including Fabric, Ministry of Sound and Dance Tunnel have just signed up to a campaign aimed at making the city’s clubs, bars and pubs into harassment-free zones.
Organised by the London branch of the global Hollaback network, the Good Night Out campaign is calling on bars, clubs and venues to take a zero-tolerance attitude to harassment and send a message to patrons that bad behaviour won’t go unchallenged.
Julia Gray, co-director of Hollaback London, said: “Groping, bum-slapping and sexually aggressive behaviour are all too common aspects of nights out in London. We started this campaign because so many women and LGTBQ people submit stories of harassment and even assault in clubs and pubs to our website, and these experiences are now so commonplace that theyre actually putting people off going out altogether.
She added: “Were challenging our nighttime economy to create safer nights out for all their customers.”
Venues that have signed up to Good Night Out include Village Underground, The Old Blue Last and Dalston nightspots Birthdays, The Alibi, Dalston Superstore, Dance Tunnel and the Shacklewell Arms.<...
Ramona Lisa Backwards And Upwards
Mar 7, 2014 10:01am | StereoGum
Last month Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, who has become one of Brooklyn’s most in-demand collaborators in recent years, announced her debut solo album as Ramona Lisa. It’s called Arcadia, it was recorded on a laptop in Rome, and it represents Polachek’s stab at “pastoral electronic music.” We already heard the eerie title track; now comes a second single, a clattering, dystopian electro-pop tune called “Backwards And Upwards.” Check it out below in a lyric video with artwork that seems to be inspired by Italy’s many ornate cathedrals.
Listen To The Five Best Songs This Week
Mar 7, 2014 9:56am | The Line Of Best Fit
Well, another week’s shot by. Here’s our pick of the best new tunes from the last seven days.
San Fran duo CATHEDRALS were added to our list of “impossible bands to Google”, but quickly forgiven nonetheless. “Harlem” is a fine trap-clap of Sleigh Bells-inspired beats stacked upon layers of off-beat harmonies and slugged-out guitar riffs.
At the other end of the spectrum was the rock ‘n’ roll snarl of “Shoe Prints In The Dust” by Midlands pair, God Damn. Growling guitar crunches and deafening drums run at full pelt on this new single, preceding the boys’ long-awaited studio time to file their debut LP. There’s too much yearning to imagine what this might sound like live, so while we wait for their Camden Rocks Festival appearance in May, let’s just turn the speakers up loud.
It’s been a short while since London’s Kaleida were on tastemakers’ lips, and the duo were back with their first 2014 offering in “Picture You”. This is a no-show-er, but a surefire grower, with its prickly xylophone-like kisses, witchy vocal chas...
Thurston Moore slams 'Jezebel' for calling him a dick for cheating on Kim Gordon
Mar 7, 2014 9:51am | Brooklyn Vegan
Thurston Moore at FFF Fest 2013 (more by Tim
Thurston Moore recently talked to The Fly about his divorce with Kim Gordon and his new relationship with Eva Prinz, not long after Kim Gordon talked to Elle about the divorce. Following The Fly interview, feminist website Jezebel posted an article about it, headlined "Thurston Moore Confirms He Is A Dick."
Pitchfork now points out that Thurston has responded to Jezebel with a Facebook post where he calls the website "gender fascism":
Jezebel is gender fascism. By not having any real critical facility to understand, in their case, men in relationship to women (presumably them) they opt to promote hate by imperialist blather. By couching it in feminism is a distinct lack of class, but i'm sure they're having a bit of online fun and when they grow up maybe they'll glean the complexities of real life and love.If you missed them the first time, you can read Thurston's interview here and Kim's interview here.
