Grizzly Bears Daniel Rossen Announces First Ever Solo Tour
Dec 6, 2013 11:00am | StereoGum
Almost two years ago Grizzly Bear and Department Of Eagles’ Daniel Rossen released his first solo EP, Silent Hour/ Golden Mile, but he’s never embarked on a solo tour. That changes this spring, when Rossen will travel from coast to coast playing songs from Silent Hour/ Golden Mile as well as Department Of Eagles’ fabulous 2008 release In Ear Park. The guy has accrued so many great songs in such a short time, and it’s good to see he’s not ignoring this lesser-known side of his catalog. Find the full itinerary below.

Rolling Stone says "Blurred Lines" is the worst song ever (but also the 50th best of 2013)
Dec 6, 2013 10:51am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
We've been seeing a lot of lists of what people thought the best music of 2013 was, including Rolling Stone, and now the magazine's Rob Sheffield has weighed in on his "Worst Song of This or Any Other Year": "Blurred Lines." Throughout the song's life, it's been sued by Marvin Gaye's family for plagiarizing Marvin Gaye, and it's been called "rapey" for its "I know you want it" lyric and other themes in the song and its video. Some may call it one of the most annoying songs ever, and others may call it "The Album That Justin Timberlake Is Too Famous To Make in 2013." In the Rolling Stone article, Sheffield writes:
Congratulations, Robin Thicke! "Blurred Lines" is the worst song of this or any other year. I can't remember the last time there was a hit song this ghastly - the sound of Adam Sandler taking a falsetto hate-whizz on Marvin Gaye's grave. I guess the year's not over yet so it's theoretically possible a worse contender could emerge, but I don't see it happening. Let me put it this way: Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey could pay their holiday respects to Lou Reed with a duet medley of "The Black Angel's Death Song"/"O Little Town of Bethlehem" and it would still be a distant second.He continues with multiple paragraphs of well thought-out hatred, and finally concludes:
So will "Blurred Lines" stand the test of time? Will it go on sucking for years like "Wild Wor...
Watch: Fucked Up cover four classic Toronto punk songs for the 35th anniversary of The Last Pogo
Dec 6, 2013 10:47am | Chart Attack
On December 1, 1978, legendary Toronto promoters the Garys threw their last punk show at the Horseshoe Tavern. Eight-hundred kids packed into the 'Shoe to watch their favourite acts from across the GTA. Before headliners Teenage Head could count in their second song, plainclothes cops rushed into the club and busted the whole thing up. Punks spilled out into Queen Street and caused a little brouhaha. Filmmaker Colin Brunton's short doc The Last Pogo captures the historic show, a landmark in Canadian punk rock and a vital document of first wave punk in Ontario.
To commemorate the 35th anniversary of The Last Pogo show, Brunton has released a whopping three-and-a-half-hour doc, The Last Pogo Jumps Again, using the Horseshoe show as the centrepiece in a wider exploration of punk in Southern Ontario in the 1970s. And to make it an extra special birthday, CBC Music invited Fucked Up, Canada's most esteemed, most friendly-faced ambassadors to punk rock, to cover a few gems in the same scuzzy room (our own CBGB or Max's Kansas City, as Effed Up drummer Jonah Falco says) that they were bashed out in three and a half decades back. Listen to the originals and watch the Fucked Up versions below.
The Secrets, "Teenage Rampage"
Sometimes the difference between pub rock and punk is a good amphetamine dealer. Toronto's The Secrets were a rhythm and blues-leaning punk rock act, newly formed at the time of The Last Pogo, made from the spare par...
Childish Gambino makes a sequel to Ted in the video for 3005
Dec 6, 2013 10:35am | Cosequence Of Sound
I’m calling bullshit on Childish Gambino’s new video for Because the Internet cut, “3005″. First off, there’s absolutely no way Donald Glover, star of Community and heartthrob to millions via Twitter, would ever wind up alone on a Ferris Wheel. Second, I’m pretty Seth MacFarlane’s Ted is Mark Wahlberg’s friend, so what’s he doing here? And third, the way Glover has that glum face just doesn’t add up to the freedom he was granted for wanting to back away from his NBC obligations. Regardless of my hesitations, the whole thing makes for a fitting video, though I’m still partial to his recent appearance alongside my boy Chance. Catch the teddy bear-friendly clip below and stream his new album here.

Warpaint return today with “Biggy”, the second track off their self-titled, Flood-produced sophomore LP, due out January 21st via Rough Trade Records. The foursome continue in the same lush and moody vein of lead single “Love Is To Die”, crafting a sensuous dream-pop anthem marked by falsetto harmonies, the reverb of drums, and aqueous guitars that weave in and out of the ether. Stream and/or download it below.
Update: They’ve also revealed 2014 tour dates.

Listen: Tei Shi M&Ms (MP Williams Paranoid Remix)
Dec 6, 2013 10:17am | The Line Of Best Fit
Tei Shi‘s debut “M&Ms” is a lovely one, and new producer MP Williams deconstructs and revamps the song entirely to leave us with a track that plays more like a short film.
Pop vocalist Valerie Teicher has a knack for creating ‘glacier-melting R&B,’ which is why we chose her as our UnDiscovered Act of the Day in July. “M&Ms” was the first we heard from her. She layered her vocals beautifully, using them as an instrument. Following her lead, New York producer MP Williams builds upon that idea.
Having produced for A$AP Rocky and Doley Bernays, Williams has since earned some praise for his vivid sounds. On this remix, he builds upon Teicher’s sentiment: ‘I had a dream that you left me,’ and the result is his self-described ‘paranoid’ take. Williams’s Balance EP is scheduled for release next year.
Watch R. Kelly Pay Tribute To Nelson Mandela And Improvise Some Songs On Arsenio
Dec 6, 2013 10:07am | StereoGum
R. Kelly’s 2003 single “Soldier’s Heart” was originally dedicated to the actual soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. But when he visited South Africa for the 2010 World Cup festivities, Kelly visited Nelson Mandela’s home, performed the song for him in his living room, and dedicated it to him. Appearing on Arsenio last night, on the day of Mandela’s death, Kelly once again performed a lovely solo-piano rendition of the song. But this was, after all, R. Kelly, and he is not one to remain solemn for long. So he pretty much took over the show. Cearly lip-syncing, he did “Shut Up,” an amazing fuck-the-haters song from his new album Black Panties, and staged the performance as a fake press conference. He sang an amazing rendition of “When A Woman Loves,” the beautiful old-school soul ballad from his 2010 album Love Letter. He gamely fielded Arsenio’s challenge to improvise a few sex songs for specific ladies on the audience. There was an interview in there, too, about how his own album led to all of his three kids’ conceptions. Watch it all below

+/- (Plus/Minus) Young Once (Stereogum Premiere)
Dec 6, 2013 10:05am | StereoGum
Here’s a name I haven’t heard in ages: +/-, or Plus/Minus for those of us whose brains shut down when trying to read mathematical symbols. Indeed, the indie-rock veterans haven’t been doing much; the forthcoming Jumping The Tracks is their first album in more than five years not counting the 2010 rarities comp Pulled Punches. Like so many former road warriors of the early aughts underground, the band has aged into its day-jobs-and-families stage, but it’s a good thing that stage has yielded another album rather than perpetual home studio tinkering because we’re all better with lead single and opening track “Young Once” in this world. There are so many little elements to this song, yet it still feels greater than the sum of its parts. Atop the incessant swirl of harmonic feedback, melodic percussion, and rolling toms, a spindly guitar arpeggio weaves with layered vocals, casting a melancholy mood and conjuring a sound as big as the sky. Your day will be better off if you listen to it below.
