Listen to cassette recording of The Beatles final concert at Candlestick Park
Aug 29, 2014 2:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Yesterday, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of The Beatles and Bob Dylan meeting for the very first time (aka, the day the Fab Four smoked their first joint). Today, we look back on another historical moment in the legendary group’s career: their final concert, which took place 48 years ago on August 29th, 1966 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

(While they did perform together later in January 1969 on the rooftop of their label, Apple, the event was unannounced and thus, not considered an “official concert”.)

The Beatles’ last show in Candlestick Park, then home to the San Francisco Giants, featured an 11-song set over the course of about 30 minutes. Among the hits played were “She’s a Woman”, “Day Tripper”, “I Feel Fine”, “Yesterday”, and “Paperback Writer”.

Tickets for the event cost only about $4.50 to $6.50 a piece, and unbelievably enough, only a little more than half of the venue’s 42,500 seats were sold. (What even … ?)

As the band knew it would be their final proper concert together, John Lennon and Paul McCartney reportedly brought a camera onto the stage with them to take photos of the crowd and personally document the momentous occasion. The Beatles had also requested their press officer, Tony Barrow, to record the concert on cassette. However, since the tape could only hold 30 minutes on each side and Barrow forgot to turn it ...


Listen: Lil Herbs remix of Fight Or Flight, featuring Chance The Rapper and Common
Aug 29, 2014 2:24pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Last December, we predicted Chicago’s own Lil Herb was “ready to make the Chance The Rapper” leap into the big leagues. Just a few months later, not only does Lil Herb look more poised than ever to have his breakthrough moment, but he’s actually joined forces with Chance The Rapper and hip-hop veteran Common for a new remix of “Fight Or Flight”.

While the original version appeared on Lil Herb’s February mixtape, Welcome To Fazoland, it seems the track has come to have new meaning it’s accompanying artwork references the tragic killing of Michael Brown and the ongoing unrest and racial tension in Ferguson, Missouri. Common also recently led a moment of silence for Ferguson at the MTV VMAs last weekend.

Listen to the inspiring and insightful remix of “Fight Or Flight” below.

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
Aug 29, 2014 1:28pm | StereoGum

Labor Day Weekend is upon us, and with it, the unofficial end of summer. So, in hindsight, what was the Song Of Summer 2014? “Fancy”? It was probably “Fancy.” What else even came close? “Anaconda” arrived too late, “Happy” peaked too early … ” “Rude”? “Problem”? Eh. Feel free to shout out your own Songs Of The Summer in the comments. As for Songs Of The Week? See below.

Watch Thom Yorke Play Another Surprise DJ Set At Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
Aug 29, 2014 12:49pm | StereoGum

Radiohead main man Thom Yorke apparently really enjoys showing up at random gatherings and playing music for whoever’s there, even if it’s just eight people in a field in Cornwall. Way back in 2009, he showed up at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles and spun records. On Tuesday night, he was back there again, doing an unannounced DJ set at the weekly Nightswim party at the Tropicana pool. This time, quick-thinking partygoers got a few video clips of Yorke at the CD turntables; check them out below.

The Heavy Lowdown: Slayer, Iron Maiden, Blake Judd, YOB, Roadburn 2015 lineup, Opeth, weekend shows & more
Aug 29, 2014 12:37pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey

The above pic was posted on Slayer's Instagram earlier in the week. Does it herald, as many expect, a new Slayer album in 2015? Is it the genesis of their pivotal post-Hanneman/Lombardo/Rubin album? Or is Kerry King just a huge Fraiser fan? I guess we'll let time decide.

At least we know Dave Lombardo isn't planning a Slayer comeback. He's more than content with his current project PHILM, telling Metal Hammer regarding a possible return to Slayer's drummer's stool: "No. That's it. I'm done now. I've got lots of other things on my plate and I now know that, when it comes to money, you don't have any friends in this business. I won't ever be going back." No friends in this business? Maybe my friend George Washington will change your mind! (Sorry, I need that back for the parking meter.)

Speaking of money, here's a name that might send shivers down the spine of your PayPal account: Blake Judd. The Nachtmystium frontman is again accused of making away with fans' money without delivering the merch. Whether or not there's any validity to the allegations, the Nachtmystium Facebook page is no more.

As for albums that have a good chance of finding your hands, Iron Maiden have embarked on a huge reissue project. Not only will their entire '80s run get repressed on vinyl, but the original singles are making their way back in print, too. Che...


30 More Songs Arcade Fire Should Cover
Aug 29, 2014 12:33pm | Chart Attack

Arcade Fire are one of Canadas most widely beloved (and reviled) bands with four studio albums to their name, but on their current world tour, theyve mostly made headlines for singing other peoples songs rather than their own. Now theres nothing wrong with a well-placed cover, and you cant fault music publications for posting poorly-shot fan YouTube videos on slow news days, but the groups regionally friendly choices (Fugazi in Washington! Feist in Calgary!) have lacked, shall we sayinspiration.

This weekend, the band finishes Web Content Tour 2014 (Toronto tonight and Montreal on Saturday), which means they have just two more chances to fuel blogs with content for the rest of the year, so they'd better make it count. Heres a list of 30 other songs that they could cover. Some of these choices are so obvious, its hard to believe Arcade Fire havent thought of them already, while others are less predictable but surefire crowd-pleasers.

Joni Mitchell, A Case Of You

A no-brainer really.

Neil Young, Heart Of Gold

Do you think Win Butler invested in Pono?

Gordon Lightfoot, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

Q: Whats more quintessentially Canadian than this song?

The Dr. Penfield, I smell burnt toast Heritage Minute

A: This.

Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX, Fancy

Are you really going to let The Killers one-up you?

Death Grips, Ive Seen Footage

R.I.P. Death Grips (...


Lemonade Minus Tide & OST
Aug 29, 2014 12:17pm | StereoGum

The New York trio Lemonade made their name by crafting hazy synthpop jams, and three albums into their career, they’re sticking with the sound that brought them to the dance. The band’s new LP Minus Tide arrives in a couple of weeks, and they’ve already let the world hear their songs “Stepping,” “Orchid Bloom,” and “Come Down Softly.” Today, they’ve shared two more, “Minus Tide” and “OST,” and both of them are shimmering, rippling sighs, though “OST” has more of a thumping rhythm track than anything we’ve heard from these guys lately. Listen to both songs below.
