Zack de la Rocha is making a record right now
May 31, 2016 11:43am | Cosequence Of Sound

With the election season in full gear and Donald Trump just one FBI indictment away from the presidency, now seems like an appropriate time for Rage Against the Machine to make a comeback. For a moment it seemed like a reunion was imminent, but ultimately Prophets of Rage turned out to be a super collaboration between the Rage Against the Machine members not named Zack and MCs from Public Enemy and Cypress Hill

So where’s this leave de la Rocha? Aside from a one-off collaboration with Run the Jewels, the Rage frontman has shied away from the spotlight since the band’s last reunion in 2011. In a new interview Rolling Stone, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford were asked about their longtime bandmate.

Morello and Wilk acknowledged they haven’t spoken to de la Rocha about Prophets of Rage, though Commerford said he did receive his blessing. “We’re a family and there’s support across the board,” Commerford explained. “I support him and everything he does, and vice versa. I’ve definitely been keeping him in the know. You’re never going to replace Zack, and we aren’t trying to do that.”

Most interesting, Wilk revealed that de la Rocha is busy “making a record right now.” He didn’t elaborate on the nature of the project, but undoubtedly speculation will center on de la Rocha’s long-in-the-works solo album.

Jack White wrote the theme song for Maya Rudolph and Martin Shorts variety TV show listen
May 31, 2016 11:35am | Cosequence Of Sound

Jack White, in all his peculiar mystique, is the music industry’s own Willy Wonka. White is endlessly working on something surprising and always delivers, from recent collaborations with Beyoncé (on “Don’t Hurt Yourself”) and even the Muppets, to now crafting the theme song for Maya and Marty.

Maya Rudolph and Martin Short’s new variety television show debuts on NBC tonight, but a clip from the theme song has already been shared. The funkified rock theme, written and produced by White, features him on drums and Dean Fertita (backing band member of The Dead Weather, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Iggy Pop) on organ.

Third Man Records also credits Dominic Davis on bass, Lillie Mae Rische on wah wah guitar, and Fats Kaplin on pedal steel guitar. This marks White’s first effort writing music for television, but as of most of his endeavors, so far so good.

Listen to the clip below.



Prophets of Rage has Zack De La Rochas blessing, will play RATM songs
May 31, 2016 11:25am | Fact Magazine

As well as new material from Public Enemy and Cypress Hill at their first show tonight.

Prophets of Rage, a reformed Rage Against the Machine with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real replacing Zach De La Rocha as frontman, will make their live debut tonight in Los Angeles at the Whiskey a Go Go. The ensemble will perform old Rage hits and new songs.

But don’t call it a “supergroup” as Tom Morello told LA’s rock station KROQ this morning: “I dont look at it like a super group…I look at it like its an elite task force of revolutionary musicians come together at a historical moment to stir shit up.”

According to B-Real, the group has been practicing in secrecy for a month and, as Chuck D tells it, getting De La Rocha’s vocals right has been an accomplishment: “It takes me and B-Real to do Rage-ified Zack De La Rocha songs so a marching salute out to him.”

Rage purists fret not, though. RATM bassist Timm Commerford tells Rolling Stone the group has been given De La Rocha’s blessing. “I spoke to Zack and got his blessing, and that’s really great,” Commerford said. “We’re a family and there’s support across the board. I support him and everything he does, and vice versa. I’ve definitely been keeping him in the know. You’re...

PREMIERE: HSY are done dealing with your shit in Little Man
May 31, 2016 10:43am | Chart Attack

"Little Man," the latest from Toronto sludge punks HSY, is a two-minute lo-fi blitz extra coarse grit, scorching hot and aimed like a death ray straight at your dumb face.

The track, recorded by Barry Weatherhead and mixed by Ian McPhedran, is basically a song-length "fuck off," explains HSY frontman Jude. It's a fast and dirty sandblasting that'll wash away any old scum you point it at.

"The song was written during a really angry spell for me," he says, "and luckily I don't have the same animosity now that I did then. I felt disrespected and shit on by people who fashioned themselves as leaders and innovators of a 'scene.' The whole experience has helped me realize that art or music or whatever you're creating has to say something, and above all it needs to have integrity. 'Little Man' means something to me. It means I'm done dealing with your shit, let's move on."

You can catch HSY live on their way to Sled Island  (with Psychic TV!) at any of the dates below:

May 31st - MTL @ La Plante*

June 1st - Kingston @ The Mansion*

June 3rd - Toronto @ The Horseshoe Tavern *

Aaron Sorkin to make directorial debut with poker drama Mollys Game
May 31, 2016 10:23am | Cosequence Of Sound

After decades of being showered with acclaim for his screenplays — from last year’s Steve Jobs to 2011’s Moneyball to 2010’s The Social Network to 2007’s Charlie Wilson’s War to 1995’s The American President and the list goes on — Aaron Sorkin has finally decided to give it a go behind the camera for his feature-film debut.

It’s a poker drama called Molly’s Game, based on Molly Bloom’s 2014 memoir, Mollys Game: From Hollywoods Elite to Wall Streets Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker, which Sorkin adapted alongside his Steve Jobs partner-in-crime Mark Gordon.

Here’s the book’s official synopsis:
