Jeremih Money Do (Feat. Gucci Mane)
Apr 20, 2015 4:56pm | StereoGum
"I don't like to show off but my money do." How can anyone on earth pretend that Gucci Mane isn't a genius? While the whole R&B-loving world waits for Jeremih to drop his oft-delayed Late Nights album, he continues to make music with unlikely collaborators like Bobby Brackins, Flo Rida, and now Gucci … More »

Take a three movement techno journey on Cio DOrs atmospheric new album All In All
Apr 20, 2015 4:34pm | Fact Magazine

Stream the German producer’s first album in five years.

Cologne producer Cio D’Or has crafted impeccable minimal techno for over a decade, but is only getting around to releasing her second LP this year. It’s also one with a unique structure. All In All is composed of three suites, each consisting of four tracks, that can be experienced over multiple formats. The vinyl release opens with the warm up side After And Before before picking up speed in the taut bleeps and acid drips of Floor X on the next side. The final section is a foggy, clanging comedown titled Yocta To Yotta which comes on it’s own separate EP.

Though they appear on different records, the three pieces come together on the CD release which you can now stream below. Grab All In All on CD May 19 via Semantica and look for the LP release a week earlier.

New York's Alright happened (videos) ++ Impalers EP stream and new Sheer Mag video & EP stream

Glue at The Wick - 4/19/15 (photo via Maria Sherman)

Multi-venue NYC punk festival New York's Alright went down this past weekend, beginning with an unofficial kickoff show on Thursday night (4/16) and running through yesterday's (4/19) all-day show at The Wick. Yesterday's show was the only one I caught, with wild locals Dawn of Humans, Austin's Glue, Tokyo's Raw Distractions, Austin's Impalers, Oslo's Urbanoia, and Toronto's Gaucho. The whole day was great, but as far as I was concerned the two Austin bands were the most memorable. Glue played a wild set that had their singer hurling himself into the crowd several times and climbing a tower of PA speakers (more on them and a stream of their recent s/t 7" here). Impalers may not have climbed speakers but they were definitely as towering.

Last year, Impalers followed their 2013 debut album with the Psychedelic Snutskallar EP (on 540 Records/Static Shock), which is five tracks of d-beaty hardcore with layers of noise and an extended guitar freakout that earn it the "psychedelic" title. Frontman Chris Ulsh (also of Power Trip, Hatred Surge and Mammoth Grinder) is a beast on this thing and he was at yesterday's show too. Download it (name your price) at bandcamp and stream it below. A video from their set is below too.

The rest of the festival had the US debut of UK '80s deathrock greats Part 1

Was Drake the worst headliner in Coachella history?
Apr 20, 2015 4:07pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Drakes Coachella debut featured high-profile cameos from Madonna and Nicki Minaj, and also indirectly led to Justin Bieber getting put in a stranglehold. But the reviews of Drake’s own performance have been anything but kind, and that’s including the rapper’s own personal opinion.

Truncated versions of songs and an awkward cameo from Madonna led Philip Cosores to call Drake’s weekend one headlining performance “a missed opportunity to turn in something truly special,” and Drake is inclined to agree. In a post-weekend one profile posted to Four Pins, Ernest Baker reveals how Drake felt less than stellar over the performance. I took an L for the first time. I just have to reassess what went wrong with my judgment,” he quotes Drake as saying in a text message.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go much better during weekend two. Billboard said Drake “underwhelmed in every way possible, making very apparent that the Toronto rapper and singer is not yet ready for a stage this big.” That’s without mentioning the awkward surprise appearance from Nicki Minaj, who neither spoke nor sang the entire time she was on stage.

Drake is a rare breed whose superstar stature within the industry is matched by a critically acclaimed discography. His booking at Coachella was a no-brainer. Until ...

Now Hear This is a daily dive into the standout songs of the... well, whaddya know? It's 4/20. Happy holiday, pot fiends! Here are a bunch of leafy jams to help you feel right.

Slim Twig, "Cannabis"


Toronto rock 'n' roll time traveller Slim Twig probably had a blast recording his cover of Serge Gainsbourg's "Cannabis," trying to capture a sound as wobbly, preposterous, and fried as the era from which it came. If A Hound At The Hem was his take on '60s pop, "Cannabis" announces a revival of the '70s with that same keen ear towards composerly arrangement. "I've been obsessed with this song for a long time," Twig says, "and as my new album is so much about a refinement of my arrangement ability, it made a perfect canvas for a new take. The new album is a total inner headspace production rabbit hole. Sex, smoke, protest and mystery wrapped into one."

Slim Twig's Cannabis 7-inch is out now on DFA Records and available for download here.

Fucked Up, "California Cold"


After nearly two decades straight edge, Fucked Up frontman Damian Abraham has come out as a vocal advocate for the efficacy of medical marijuana. Now, I'm exactly the kind of person who would snicker at the idea that you could hear that in their music. Fucked Up have always played with psychedelia. But, then, there's those flutes. And I wonder if you can hear it.

Father John Misty sang with Florence & the Machine at Coachella, shares RSD15 single, expands tour (dates, stream)

Father John Misty put out a heart-shaped single for Record Store Day 2015 (4/18), which featured an acoustic version of I Love You Honeybear's title track, retitled "I Loved You, Honeybee" on the a-side, and unreleased song "Never Been a Woman," on the flip. You can stream both sides of that below.

The same day, he performed at the second weekend of Coachella and included a cover of Leonard Cohen's "I'm Your Man" which you can watch here. He also made a surprise appearance with Florence & the Machine (who played sitting down after breaking her foot at Weekend 1) during her set on Sunday (4/19) for a duet of "Love Hurts." You can watch that below.

Father John Misty will be back in NYC for a show at Central Park Summerstage's Rumsey Field on August 5 with Angel Olsen, and Summer Moon. Tickets are still available. He's just announced more tour dates, saying "Touring can be really lonely. You feel isolated, disoriented. Even sort of socially catatonic. That's why it's so important that I see your beautiful little stupid faces. You are my lifeline to the world of mankind." All dates are listed below...

Photo Recap: Pit Stop Music Festival
Apr 20, 2015 3:39pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Festival season is upon us. People will inevitably trek across the country to see the largest and most well-known festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo in order to have the typical festival experience: seeing most of the bands you want to see from a few hundred yards away, overpaying for beer, and getting a painful tank burn before falling back into your friend’s car for the seven hour drive back home. It’s a long, messy, unpredictable but memorable weekend that’s become quintessential to what summer is all about.

The Pit Stop Festival in Bloomington back in March, however, brought a little intimacy back to that festival feeling. Held over three nights at a handful of local venues, Pit Stop’s goal was simple: “Bloomington isnt flyover country; its where great independent music puts wheels on the ground. Pit Stop is a three-night sprint of live music featuring national, regional & local acts. Like SXSW for the Upland South, catch the best of indie rock, Americana, hip-hop and more as they roll through our town.” It brought a few of the same pitfalls as its larger festival brethren (due to show times I couldn’t see everyone I wanted to see), but it also found a few of the same unmissable draws in its list of headliners and local talent. Even though I was left with the same sense of exhaustion and slight dehydration at the end of Pit Stop tha...
