Tim Hecker Albums From Worst To Best
Apr 29, 2016 9:54am | StereoGum
Tim HeckerThere are few ambient electronic artists as consistent and groundbreaking as Tim Hecker, even if the terms "ambient" and "electronic" barely encompass the scope of his work. He does use electronic manipulation to create drone-infused atmospheres, but in recent years, he has increasingly relied on live recordings of orchestral elements to form a base for … More »

Local Natives premiere new song Past Lives listen
Apr 29, 2016 9:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

With the exception of a few one-off remixes and covers, Local Natives have kept a low profile since the release of 2013’s stellar album Hummingbird — that is, until this week. Following social media teasers and the last-minute announcement of an intimate San Francisco gig, the LA indie rockers have put out a brand new song called “Past Lives”.

Effervescent, busy percussion and lush harmonies highlight the track, with Local Natives operating in their comfort zone but pushing for something a little deeper. “Save me from the prime of my life,” they plead, before nifty guitar work and lustrous keys cut in around the 2:40 mark.

Stream it below.

While this is the first official release of “Past Lives”, the song has been played live in the past and featured in an episode of Netflix’s Flaked.

It’s unclear whether a new album is on the way, but the band has revamped its website, uploaded a new press photo (seen above), and reportedly played new material at last night’s Bay Area show. Local Natives are also scheduled to appear at a handful of festivals this summer, including Lollapalooza and End of the Road.

Courtney Love dumped Billy Corgan after he refused to pay for her airline flight
Apr 29, 2016 8:47am | Cosequence Of Sound

Prior to her relationship with Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love was romantically involved with another ’90s grunge icon, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan.

As Alternative Nation points out, Love discussed her relationship with Corgan in an extended interview that appears on the DVD version of Brett Morgen’s Cobain documentary Montage of Heck. Specifically, she revealed that Corgan “kind of lost me” after he refused to pay for an airline flight.

“When [Kurt and I] were still platonic, I was on the ferry, Billy Corgan would not pay for my flight back from Roskilde, and Nirvana had played with the Pumpkins at that show, so I was on the ferry with the Nirvana guys,” Love explained.

“I had a crush on Kurt, he was gorgeous, I mean he was beautiful, and enigmatic, and evasive. This was after Reading, but I still was dating and sleeping with Billy Corgan, but he kind of lost me at this moment, this wasnt the moment that he specifically lost me, that would be about six to eight months later, but he kind of lost me at this moment.'”

Thanks to Corgan’s penny pinching, Love and Cobain began dating in the fall of 1991 and were married within six months. Only recently did Love and Corgan reconcile.
