Lorde announces new single, Yellow Flicker Beat
Sep 22, 2014 1:19pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Lorde has announced the release of a new single entitled “Yellow Flicker Beat”. Serving as the New Zealand pop star’s first new music since last year’s breakout debut LP, Pure Heroine, it’s due for release on Monday, September 29th.

The song was written specifically for the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Lorde was also charged with curating the rest of the artists appearing on the soundtrack, though she’s kept the names of those contributors close to the vest thus far.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is set to hit theaters on November 21st.

Meanwhile, Lorde is also reported to be working on new music with Kanye West amid her ongoing US tour.

Below, watch video of Lorde performing at Las Vegas’ iHeart Radio Music Festival this past weekend.




GWAR clarify who their new members are (Vulvatron & Blóthar), and what they do

Vulvatron at Riot Fest Chicago (more by James Richards IV)

After some confusion about who GWAR's new members are and what they do, most notably Vulvatron, GWAR have issued a public statement:

GWAR, the most brutal band in existence, has bolstered its ranks leading up to the GWAR Eternal Tour. The Berserker Blóthar and Vulvatron are the latest intergalactic warriors to be banished to the pathetic mudball known as Planet Earth. Blóthar; a fat, filthy, frozen space viking, will take over as GWAR's lead vocalist. The role of the red-hot cybernetic spitfire known as Vulvatron is more mysterious...Both will feature prominently in the anticipated GWAR Eternal Tour - which promises to be the most shocking and entertaining rock show of the year! Get to know your new masters before they grind you to a bloody pulp!
As previously mentioned, Blothar is played by Michael Bishop, formerly Beefcake the Mighty. More details on each character are listed below.

It was recently reported (and re-reported all over the place) that Vulvatron was "co-frontperson", but as we can see now, she is actually just "more mysterious". Both characters were already seen live at Riot Fest Chicago (and Blothar played the GWAR-B-Q). Both can be seen again on all the tour dates listed below...

Watch: SBTRKT – “New Dorp, New York” (Feat. Ezra Koenig) Video
Sep 22, 2014 1:06pm | CMJ


While I was watching the video for SBTRKT’s recent single New Dorp, New York, our art director asked me, “Are you watching a Pixar movie?” And I said, “Yes, but more apocalyptic.” That insider conversation is the essence of the Fons Schiedon-directed animation, which features the raccoon-dog thing from the Wonder Where We Land album art on the hunt in a smoky, late-night city. Alongside this, SBTRKT dropped yet another album cut, The Light, featuring Denai Moore. Watch the video and listen to that track below.

Hear jungle war dubs from Sully, Mella Dee, Etch and more
Sep 22, 2014 12:38pm | Fact Magazine

It’s war dub time again, and this time make sure you’ve got an Amen break handy.

From what we can gather, it’s Keysound jungle revivalist Sully who’s responsible for this one – he posted his dub a few days ago, and demanded a response from Epoch and Etch, who both took the bait. Etch managed to throw two dubs together and while Epoch’s was on his Soundcloud page for a while, it appears to have been removed now.

Filter Dread and Gantz also got in on the action, as did Mella Dee who hilariously went on an upbeat tip, giving a big nod to the Northern obsession with happy hardcore in the process. Take a listen to a selection of the dubs so far below.

A Sunny Day In Glasgow Double Dutch Video
Sep 22, 2014 12:30pm | StereoGum

Here’s an exceedingly literal video for A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s “Double Dutch.” Directors Jen Goma and Luisa Conlon set Sea When Absent track — barely over a minute long — to images of hopping, skipping feet that seem to be doing jumprope tricks without the jumprope. There is also a lot of white powder. Watch below.


Cloud Castle Lake Sync Video
Sep 22, 2014 12:30pm | StereoGum

Cloud Castle Lake’s EP Dandelion is released today in the UK, along with the video for “Sync.” The emotionally expansive track pairs high, wailing vocals with a funky brass section to create an almost paradoxical sound. The video features a boy trapped in a green house who spends the majority of the video pawing at the window, half-dancing, half-squirming in the tight space. The jittery dancing swells with the music, becoming more uncontrolled as the song reaches its energetic peak. The boy’s movement matches the odd but not off-putting nature of the song itself.

Ka Lost Prophet Report
Sep 22, 2014 12:28pm | StereoGum

The DIY Brooklyn rapper and producer Ka made the meditative, mythic album The Night’s Gambit, one of last year’s best rap LPs, and he’s already followed it up with the only-available-on-CD EP 1200 B.C. Now, he’s become the latest artist to participate in this summer’s Adult Swim Singles Series, which has brought us a ton of heat rocks over the last few months. Ka’s contribution is called “Lost Prophet Report,” a bleary psychedelic rap opus with some prime John Carpenter keyboards. It’s both a good example of Ka’s aesthetic and a good example of what he can do when he pushes beyond that aesthetic. Download it below.

King Crimson played 4 nights at Best Buy Theater (night 1 pics & review, all 4 setlists)

King Crimson @ Best Buy Theater - 9/18/14

The sleeping giant became the roaring beast this past week as King Crimson rolled into town for four shows at NYC's Best Buy Theater Thursday (9/18) through Sunday (9/21). Specifically titled The Elements of King Crimson, this lineup has also been referred to as KC Mark VIII. Before going any further, let it be known that yes, I am a Crim geek. I am one of those who has sat in a room with headphones on for hours obsessing over their albums and songs as well as having seen the band live previous times. So after a long exhausting week I headed into the theater for night 1, tired as hell and not sure if I would be able to stay afloat for the entire evening. Unfortunately it did not start out well. Apparently everyone decided to arrive at the same time so the lines to get into into the theater were crazy long and moving slowly. Suddenly as I got to the front, some genius (apparently from the band's management) decided to shut the doors as the band came on stage giving out the edict that no one else could come in until the second song was done. Hmm, yeah, with a much older crowd, already imbibing and having paid a lot for tickets... well you do the math on how that went over. I'm standing outside the doors listening to one of my favorite bands kick into "Larks Tongues in Aspic pt 1." Argh. Luckily they rescinded the order after the first song and swung open the doors to let everyone el...


Stream: Christopher Owens new album A New Testament
Sep 22, 2014 12:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Singer-songwriter and former Girls frontman Christopher Owens will release his sophomore solo album, A New Testament, on September 29th via Turnstile Records. For an advanced listen, it’s streaming in full at Pitchfork.

Owens’ latest 12-track effort follows up on his 2013 solo debut, Lysandre. The album was recorded with producer Doug Boehm, who also produced Girls’ sophomore album Father, Son, Holy Ghost. Owens brings over genres from his previous projects for this newest release, delving into gospel and honky tonk.

Every new album is a new testament,” Owens said in a statement. “Its a testament to honest, earnest, simple songwriting three chords and the truth,’ songs inspired by the fundamentals of American musicGospel, Country, R&B, picking the songs for this record was exciting enough for me, because theyre some of the ones that speak to me the most, of my memories, real life experiences, my battles, my victories. But hearing the record actually take form and come to life was even more exciting than I imagined.

The album is preceded by three singles, “Stephen”, “Nothing More Than Everything To Me”, and “Never Wanna See That Look Again”.

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.

A New Testament Tracklist:
01. My Troubled Heart
02. Nothing More Than Everything...


Video Premiere: The Wans – “Never Win”
Sep 22, 2014 12:15pm | CMJ


In the Wans’ new video for Never Win, the Nashville trio is down on their luck. What starts as a beautiful day soon devolves into a series of mishaps involving birds, bikes, young black-belts and some really unpleasant-looking sunburn. Here’s what the Wans frontman Simon Kerr told us about the video:

I initially came to [directors] Jason [Denton} & Steve [Voss] with a rough idea of all of us having the worst day ever, and we built the video around that idea. I was made to look as gross as possible, while Thomas [bass] wore a karate outfit the entire day and Mark [drums] wore a speedo the entire day. Jason and Steve wanted us to look as ridiculous as possible.

The video really shows our sense of humor. We take our music pretty seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. The majority of the time we’re laughing and making fun of each other in the van while we’re on tour.

Never Win is the lead track off the band’s recent album, He Said, She Said. We’ve got the premiere of the video, which you can check out below along with the Wans’ dates at CMJ Music Marathon.

Show Dates For The Wans:
10/21- BMI Showcase at Knitting Factory – NYC
10/21- Bar Matchless – NYC
10/24- Spike Hill – NYC
10/25- Arlene’s Grocery – NYC
