Stream Karen Meat On The Couch EP
May 25, 2016 4:22pm | StereoGum
Karen Meat make bouncy, sunny pop songs with surprisingly dark and emotionally manipulative gooey centers. Lead single "On The Couch" is a nostalgic take on falling in love; it also foreshadows the anxieties that will inevitably tear the pairing apart. "I Made You A Card" and "Who Cares?" sound cute and precious on the … More »

Director Adam Wingard sure looks like he wants that Halloween gig
May 25, 2016 3:51pm | Cosequence Of Sound
It’s been an exciting week for Halloween fans.
Director Guillermo del Toro tipped off the fun with an entire Twitter rant over the weekend detailing his love for John Carpenter. Then, Jason Blum dropped the biggest bombshell of them all on Monday night by announcing a new sequel to be executive produced by the one and only Carpenter.
Since then, the door’s been left wide open for all sorts of wild theories, mostly involving the big key question, “Who’s going to direct the damn thing?” We suggested five filmmakers on our own, shortly before word leaked that Blumhouse was talking to Hush director Mike Flanagan.
Now, it would appear one of our own suggestions is lobbying for the job. Director Adam Wingard, whose love for the franchise knows no bounds, has been mysteriously posting various Halloween-related tweets for the last day.

Academy Award-winning director Francis Ford Coppola will soon publish the notebook he kept while making 1972s classic gangster drama, The Godfather.

Regan Arts is hailing it as the most important unpublished work on one of the greatest films of all time, with promises that it will reveal the intense creative process that went into making Coppolas vision a reality. The Godfather Notebook will also come with an introduction by Coppola himself and exclusive photographs from on and off the set.
If youre curious about how all those notebook pages translate to a formal book, scans are now available to preview on the Regan Arts website. The Godfather Notebook will be priced at $50, with a signed limited edition available for $250 if that’s an offer you can’t refuse.
Video Vault: Bruce Springsteen steals show as opening act at his very first gig watch
May 25, 2016 3:04pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Video via YouTube user Springsteenfan
Decades before fans chanted “Bruuuce” in daringly deep octaves, and long before he earned his Boss moniker, Bruce Springsteen was a relative unknown, a novice musician simply trying to make a name for himself. Still, even in his early years, Springsteen showed incredible potential, hinting at the rock legend that he would later become.
Case in point: Springsteen’s first-ever gig. Footage from the 1972 concert at Max’s Kansas City in New York shows a young (and bearded) Springsteen performing his inaugural set as a signed artist with Columbia Records. He was booked as the opening act for Dave Van Ronk and Doris Abrahams, but clearly made a strong impression — the kind usually attributed to seasoned, headliner types.
In the clip, he’s introduced by MC and booking agent Sam Hood as “a fine young songwriter” and a “special talent.” As Springsteen settles on his stool, guitar in hand, he says, “This is a song about being new in town,” before diving into “Henry Boy”.
The track was included on a list of possibilities for Springsteen’s debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., but still remains to see an official release. A studio version of the song can be found on a handful of bootlegs, though.

Modern Baseball have created a hotline to ensure the safety of their fans on tour
May 25, 2016 2:55pm | Chart Attack
Tonight Modern Baseball will kick off their tour with Joyce Manor and Thin Lips in Nashville, Tennessee. The hefty 34-date road trip is in support of Holy Ghost, MoBo's recently released third album, a concise pop-punk coloured record that has gotten the band some well-deserved attention. Despite the praise, Modern Baseball are still as down to earth as you can be, and for this tour they're making an effort to ensure the safety of their fans.
Recognizing the inappropriate behaviour and aggression that seems to have found a home in the pop-punk scene at large, Modern Baseball have taken the lead from Speedy Ortiz and set up a hotline for audience members to text or call if they feel unsafe at any of their upcoming shows. By calling or texting 201-731-MOBO, you'll be able to contact the band's tour manager who can then notify security.
Speaking to MTV, lead-singer Brendan Lukens discussed the need for some sort of safety mechanism at their shows:
"I feel like enough people were just coming up to us after shows and hitting us up via Twitter in general and just giving us subtle hints or just flat-out telling us that they were having a weird time or an uneasy time at our shows. So after we saw bands like PWR BTTM and Speedy [Ortiz], all these sick bands, do really great things to help their fans o...
David Cronenbergs Crash, Dead Ringers and Naked Lunch scores come to vinyl
May 25, 2016 2:46pm | Fact Magazine
The scores to three of the horror master’s best films come to vinyl.
Canadian composer Howard Shore is best known to most for his Oscar winning scores to The Lord Of The Rings, but now some of his earlier (creepier) finally being released on vinyl.
Mondo has revealed vinyl releases for Shore’s scores to David Cronenbergs Crash, Dead Ringers and Naked Lunch. Though each of the scores received CD releases, this marks the first time they’ve ever been pressed to vinyl and, as expected, Mondo has pulled out all the stops to give them a lavish debut.
In addition to their usual high pressing standards, the label has commissioned new artwork for each release. You can grab Naked Lunch today (to coincide with the film’s 25th anniversary) through Mondo’s store and find Dead Ringers in June, followed by Crash in July.
Take a look at the new artwork for all three below.
Beck joins Flume on new song Tiny Cities listen

Australian producer Flume pulled in some big guns for his forthcoming sophomore album, Skin. Already he’s shared collaborative tracks with Kai , Tove Lo, and Vince Staples and Kuka. Now, he’s revealed his biggest guest feature yet with the Beck assisted “Tiny Cities”.
The glossy song opens with a skittering, slow beat over which Beck sings about being haunted by the ruins of a relationship. “It was never perfect/ It was never meant to last,” he reiterates over and over before the song shifts directions. After the halfway point, the sparse, anthemic instrumentation is superseded by thudding low end and glass scratching synths. As the song falls from the climax, however, there’s a pleasant blend of the two moods, one part heady rhythms, one part airy romance.
Check out the song, bookended by a discussion Beck and Flume had with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 Radio about how the song came together, below.
Skin is out May 27th via Mom + Pop. The entire thing will stream beginning at 5:30 PM EST today (May 25th) during a Facebook Live event.
Snooker champion Steve Davis to DJ Glastonbury
May 25, 2016 2:32pm | Fact Magazine
From the snooker table to the turntables.
Six-time snooker champion Steve Davis will be DJing Stonebridge Bar during this year’s Glastonbury Festival in June. In the 1980s, Davis was ranked #1 in the world for seven consecutive seasons and won the World Championship in the game six times. He now hosts a radio show in Essex playing all sorts of FACT-friendly music.
When asked what he’ll be playing at the fest, he told the BBC: “Stuff that’s a bit more complicated and a little bit more leftfield than ‘doof, doof, doof’.” Davis, who presented a pool competition at this year’s Bloc, also said: “It’s not necessarily techno. We’re playing some stuff that’s electronic and some that will appeal that people who are into IDM.”
“It’s quite strange. I’ve been doing a radio show in Brentwood, and I’ve joined forces with a musician, Kavus Torabi, who’s been in a few bands over the years,” he said of his post-snooker following. “We’ve got quite a mini following online, it’s a little bit culty.”
Glastobury takes place June 22-26 and will feature performances from PJ Harvey, Skepta and Grimes, among others. Coldplay is set to headline.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra recently contributed to The National’s massive Grateful Dead tribute album, Day of the Dead. Now, they’re back with “First World Problem”, their first original release since one of the best LPs of 2015, Multi-Love.
The track is ushered in by a surge of rich brass and glittering synths, followed by some of the grooviest, most soulful arrangements we’ve heard from the psych rock outfit. “You’ve got to understand that I could be your man, or a first world problem,” UMO sing. According to a press release, the song was recorded this past March while the band was on a break from the road.
Stream it below.
