Foo Fighters set premiere date for Sonic Highways, first song from new album
Aug 1, 2014 11:00am | Cosequence Of Sound

Foo Fighters have set a premiere date for their HBO series, Sonic Highways, during which they’ll debut the first track from their upcoming eighth studio album. The inaugural episode will air Friday, October 17th at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, with the other seven episodes debuting subsequent Fridays at the same time.

Sonic Highways will document Foo Fighters’ sessions in eight different cities — Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, DC, and New York — as they record the album in various legendary studios. Each episode will see the band recording a song inspired by the city they’re in. Often times, the band was joined by a local musician of note; Gary Clark Jr. (Austin), Eagles Joe Walsh (Los Angeles), and Cheap Tricks Rick Nielsen (Chicago) are all said to have contributed to the record.

Frontman Dave Grohl explained to The Hollywood Reporter: “Each city has a theme. As we’re telling the story of not only the music but the history of the city, I had to find the theme first and then match it to the music. The lyrics I don’t write until the night before I sing them or sometimes an hour before. So once the music and the theme of each city was set, we traveled to each place and spent a week there. Wed get there, start recording and I would just run around town filming and interviewing as many people as I can. I did over 100...



Listen: Diarrhea Planets new song Spooners
Aug 1, 2014 11:00am | Cosequence Of Sound

For his entry in the 2014 installment of Adult Swims Singles Program, Auto-Tune impressario Future upped the anty by pairing the silky “Coupe” with a cartoon video ripped from Adult Swims own nightly programming block. So, just how could any other band/artist hope to match trap music, sweet luxury cars, and Ultraman cameos? How about with four blistering guitars.

Thats right, this week’s Singles release features the stylings of Nashvilles own Diarrhea Planet, who unveil a brand new song entitled “Spooners”. Here, the six-piece shift slightly away from the quirky pop punk sheen of last years Im Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. Instead, the focus becomes about generating an even more physically-jarring wall of noise, which they accomplish with four-to-the-floor riffs, anthemic vocals that leave them practically hoarse, and heaps of feedback. Its sort of like running head-long into a mosh pit, if the other attendees were all NFL linebackers.

Listen in below:

In addition to Future and Diarrhea Planet, the 2014 Singles Program has already featured Giorgio Moroder, Speedy Ortiz, Machindrum, and Sleep, who offered up their first new track in 20 years.

The Singles Program will continue each Monday for the next seven weeks and features new music from Run The Jewels, Mastodon, Deafheaven, Captain Murphy, and more. Consult the full schedule below.

This Weeks 5 Best Music Videos: Vybz Kartel, Bill Callahan, Future and more
Aug 1, 2014 10:58am | Chart Attack
This week we had two great cartoon music videos, one cartoonish one, and one with literally face-melting effects. Which is great if you're tired of looking at boring old humans in three stupid dimensions. Also, if Vybz Kartel knows about this unofficial music video for "Beautiful Girl," he's going to be mad. As mad as a dude in jail for murder can get! Watch the five best music videos of the week below.

Vybz Kartel, "Beautiful Girl"

"With a fog machine, a generator and some studio lights, the gyrating youth take the genre's powerful sexuality and turn into an occasionally direct confrontation with the society that created it."

Filmed during production of Young and Gay: Jamaica's Gully Queens.

Future, "Coupe"

"It's a brand new song for the Adult Swim Singles series, so it's not too shocking that its video bears a strong resemblance to China, IL. Like that late night cartoon, the humour feels on-the-fly with a lot of very funny cameos..."

Including an appearance from this guy.

Woods, "New Light"

All the books you dawdled away math class sketching in are coming to life for "New Light"....John Andrews, organist for the Brooklyn psych folk group, animated the whole thing from drawings by the band's frontman Jeremy Earl."


This Weeks 5 Best Songs: FKA twigs, Rustie and Danny Brown, B L A C K I E and more
Aug 1, 2014 10:57am | Chart Attack
Our roundup this week is organized in ascending order of hypeness. We start with a little bit of lethargic drone, and end on some trenchant fear-noise. Let us know if you flip your desk.

FKA twigs, "Pendulum"

"It's close to the reverential moments of Jessie Ware and Blood Orange, though FKA twigs may be even more comfortable at using her sources as navigational tools rather than goalposts, as landmarks for exploring her own sound."

Black Myth Zone Chant, "Centre of the Universe"

"...hypnagogic beats and moonshine-drunk vocals mumbling demonic oaths."

HOMESHAKE, "Cash Is Money"

"His sound is a bit shinier...with glitched vocals prattling off odes to wealth, but he hasn't lost his talents for a funny and catchy conceit."

Rustie feat. Danny Brown, "Attak"

"On 'Blueberry' Darq E Freaker flipped a dapper organ sample into neon peel-out, and Danny Brown's verse responded in kind. Rustie's 'Attak' magnifies that formula, echoing with self-destruct sequence synths over a kit so huge Hudson Mohawke is probably sweating."

B L A C K I E, "None Above"

"Utterly swamped in the nihilism of the title, B L A C K I E spews his "verses" like a man c...


Lil Wayne faces $1 million lawsuit for unpaid private jet bills
Aug 1, 2014 10:56am | Fact Magazine

Fly in?

Let’s get this straight first – creative drought or not, Lil Wayne is still undoubtedly one of the world’s biggest rappers, so if you see a picture of him reclining in a private jet, double cup in hand, you’d think nothing of it. The guy has cash, right? His label’s called Young Money for fuck’s sake.

Well, according to a new lawsuit filed by aircraft rental company Signature Group, he’s not actually been paying his tab. The company has demanded a million dollars from Wayne and his Young Money Entertainment group, as it claims that Tunechi has been flying around the world in luxury on their dime.

The documents filed seem disdainful of the rapper’s lavish lifestyle (which is somewhat rich coming from a private jet rental company), saying, “”As with many such artists, Mr. Carter appears to enjoy the finer things in life: expensive cars, a mansion in La Gorce Country Club on Miami Beach, and private aircraft travel for himself, his agents, and members of his entourage, to worldwide destinations of his choice.

“Naturally, the enjoyment of such luxuries is not free, and Mr. Carter and his putative Florida limited liability, defendant Young Money, have failed to live up to their obligations and now owe plaintiff, Signature Group, over one million dollars in fees and charges relating to Mr. Carter’s jet-setting around the globe on private a...

Virgin Mobile FreeFest not returning in 2014
Aug 1, 2014 10:47am | Brooklyn Vegan

Virgin Mobile FreeFest, which has happened in one form or another for the last five years at Baltimore/DC-area Merriweather Post Pavilion, will not return for a sixth:

Virgin Mobile FreeFest, the one day music festival produced by Seth Hurwitz IMP Productions, has ended its run.

The festival, originally held at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore in 2006, moved to the Merriweather Post Pavilion five years ago and in the wake of the financial crisis went 'free', offering tickets in exchange for donations to festival sponsor Virgin Mobile's RE*Generation initiative to help homeless youth, or for volunteer work.

"We'll be making a difference, in a different way," Virgin Mobile spokeswoman Jayne Wallace wrote in a statement. "Instead, Virgin Mobile will continue its tradition of helping make a difference and support the youth homelessness cause by making a significant donation directly to the Sasha Bruce RE*Generation House." - [Encore]

The 2013 edition featured MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Washed Out, Icona Pop, CHVRCHES and others.

It will soon be legal to make parodies of any copyrighted music you want
Aug 1, 2014 10:20am | Fact Magazine

For many years, there’s been a grey area in the UK where parody is concerned.

Long the staple of sketch shows and comedy performances, amusing parody versions of hit songs often had to be changed just enough from the original track to stay on the right side of the law (a different melody here, a new harmony there), but that’s all set to change.

Back in 2010, ‘Newport (Ymerodraeth State of Mind)‘ debuted on YouTube, and re-tooled Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ iconic ‘Empire State of Mind’ to represent their Welsh locale. After racking up millions of views, it was pulled by EMI who cited copyright infringement as the reason. Now this couldn’t have happened in the USA – the country has a ‘fair use’ policy which allows parodies to be exempt from the usual copyright laws. This exemption is why artists such as Weird Al Yankovic can get away with having a career reworking songs such as Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’, and why Nathan Fielder’s recent (and very high profile) Dumb Starbucks store was technically legal.

Thankfully, Parliament have now voted in favour of a law that will actually prevent parodies from being the target of copyright takedowns. Entitled The Copyright and Rights in Performances (Quotation and Parody) Regulations, the new regulations will come into force on October 1, and will allow far more ...
