SBTRKT New Dorp, New York (Feat. Ezra Koenig)
Jul 22, 2014 2:05pm | StereoGum

Three years ago, the masked, mysterious London dance producer SBTRKT released his self-titled debut album, which showed how sparse, architectural club music could absolutely work as pop if you did it right. The album helped introduce singers like Jessie Ware and Sampha, and when Drake jumped on a remix a few months later, that just sounded right. SBTRKT went away for a little while after that, returning a few months ago with an instrumental EP called Transitions and a new Sampha collab called “Temporary View.” And now he’s announced the release of Wonder When We Land, his next proper album. The first single is called “New Dorp, New York”; it’s a bubbly, inviting banger with a slippery, sidelong vocal from Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, who sounds right at home on this. The song is an absolute monster, and it debuted on BBC radio earlier today. Listen to it below.

Kendrick Lamar Has 40 Songs Ready for Next Album; Dr. Dre's In There, Too...
Jul 22, 2014 1:48pm | The Daily Swarm



With the immense out-of-nowhere success of Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city, the world is wondering how rap’s new king would follow up the effort. Fear not, for Kendrick doesn’t slack off. In a new interview with Complex, the TDE artist revealed that he has around 30 to 40 songs recorded for his new album. And among them, there’ll be a few joints featuring production from Dr. Dre:

Expectations are high. After good kid, good simply wont be good enough. Unlike GKMC, which Kendrick planned years in advance, theres no cover art in mind for the follow-up. As for a title, Kendrick says hes flirting with ideas. Hes been working primarily with TDEs in-house producers, Tae Beast and Sounwave of Digi+Phonics, but has also gotten in the studio with Dr. Dre. Hes still just getting his ideas down, but so far Kendricks recorded 30 to 40 new songs for the album (he recorded 60 to 70 songs for GKMC). He says hell be ready for a fourth quarter release.

Hooray – we’re so ready!

Nude Beach announce '77' on Don Giovanni (stream a track +++ more 4Knots pics)
Jul 22, 2014 1:03pm | Brooklyn Vegan

words by Andrew Sacher, photos by Chris La Putt

Nude Beach at 4Knots earlier this month

We mentioned not long ago that local power popsters Nude Beach signed to Don Giovanni, and the band have now announced that the label will release their new album, 77 (which may or may not be a reference to the year many of their influences were released), on October 21. Its first single is the track "I Can't Keep The Tears From Falling" and if you liked their last album, or power pop from 1977, you'll likely dig this too. Check it out below.

No upcoming dates at the moment, but they did play their hometown earlier this month at the 4Knots Festival. We already posted one set of pictures from that festival, and there's another set of Nude Beach in this post. More, with the new song stream, below...

Reading between the lines of Juicy J/Wiz Khalifa/Ty Dolla $igns Ninja Turtle rap Shell Shocked
Jul 22, 2014 1:00pm | Chart Attack

Off the bat: Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty Dolla $ign have all heard "Addams Groove" and "Ninja Rap." As accomplished businessmen who don't give a fuck what anyone thinks, they know how profitable movie-themed raps are and how quickly they go from platinum singles to pure camp in the public eye. So it's unfair to assume that recording a dubstep rap song called "Shell Shocked" for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie was done so out of ignorance. They know exactly what they're doing.

Aside from lining the artists' pockets with free Dominoes for life and winking at the past, the song exists to begin a revolution. Read between the lines, and it'll show you how anyone can battle the inequalities of the world. The proof is in the (pizza®) pie:

"That's my fam, I hold them down forever/Us against the world, we can battle whoever/Together ain't no way we can fail/You know I got your back, just like a turtle shell"

Juicy J starts with a specific reference to the accusations of corruption that plagued this year's World Cup.

"Knock knock / You about to get shell shocked"

This line is sure to be hugely controversial due to its strong and unequivocal stance on the wars and instability in the Middle East.

"By my side Imma keep my brothers / Live or die man we need each other"


Watch: Team Spirit Teenage Heart Video
Jul 22, 2014 12:57pm | CMJ


When I first started watching the video for Team Spirit’s wide-eyed pop single Teenage Heart, I thought I was in for another Bound 2 parody. Instead, it morphed into something quite different, with frontman Ayad Al Adhamy playing both the doctor and the patient in some kind of twisted game of Operation. There’s blood, guts and organs (Teenage Heart, get it?) and an obligatory sexy nurse, Blink-182-style. Team Spirit’s upcoming album, Killing Time (one of our most anticipated of 2014), is out this fall via Vice. Watch the video below.

The post Watch: Team Spirit – “Teenage Heart” Video appeared first on CMJ.


Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) A Keepsake
Jul 22, 2014 12:38pm | StereoGum

“A Keepsake” is the second single we’ve heard off the eclectically named Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)’s forthcoming album, You Will Eventually Be Forgotten, their first since 2009. Michigan couple Keith and Cathy Latinen premiered their first new song earlier this month, and “A Keepsake” is a fitting follow-up to the slow wail that was “If It’s Bad News, It Can Wait.” It’s the same delicate nostalgia delivered cleanly and sincerely, with a guest appearance from Braid frontman Bob Nanna. If these songs are any indication, the new album will be a sad symphony — but a neatly sad one. Listen to “A Keepsake” over at NPR.

Kimbra releasing a new LP, touring w/ Empress Of (dates and streams)
Jul 22, 2014 12:30pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Kimbra at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)

Kimbra quickly escalated from only being known (in the US) as the other singer on that Gotye song to someone who could headline some pretty large rooms. She's now set to release her first album since that newfound success, The Golden Echo, on August 19 via Warner Brothers. The album was produced by Rich Costey (The Shins, TV on the Radio) and features contributions from The Mars Volta's Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Dirty Projectors' Dave Longstreth and others. It's already spawned four diverse singles, which you can listen to below.

Kimbra will support the new record on a tour with NYC art pop singer Empress Of that hits Empress Of's hometown on November 6 at Bowery Ballroom, a smaller place than Kimbra's last headlining show here. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/25) at noon.

All dates are listed, with those song streams, below...
