YG Do It To Ya (Feat. TeeFLii) Video
Sep 29, 2014 1:30pm | StereoGum

The Compton rapper YG released his debut album My Krazy Life way the hell back in March, and it’s still the best rap full-length of 2014, at least until RTJ2 comes out. The videos for My Krazy Life singles like “Who Do You Love” and “Left, Right” have been sunny throwbacks to the early-’90s era of West Coast rap videos, all lowriders and barbecues and golden-hour sunlight. The new video for “Do It To Ya,” a collaboration with the R&B singer and fellow DJ Mustard protégé TeeFLii, takes that aesthetic even further, filming its raucous pool party in smeary VHS-quality images. Check it out below.

Lewis Fountains (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 29, 2014 1:19pm | StereoGum

Next month, Summersteps Records is putting out a cassette run of Love Aint No Mystery, the third album uncovered from mysterious Canadian artist Lewis, and the tape comes with two exclusive tracks not found on the digital version that came out earlier this year. One of those unreleased songs is “Fountains,” a heavy seven-minute piece featuring sparse guitar work and Lewis’ trembling and sorrowful vocals. It’s an epic track, muffled and heartbreaking and absolutely worth a listen, which you can do below.

It’s just about the end of festival season, but Portland gave us one more this past weekend: Project Pabst, the Milwaukee beer company’s music festival. The festival brought together Modest Mouse, Built To Spill, GZA, Speedy Ortiz, and more. It also included some local heroes such as Shabazz Palaces and Red Fang. We sent photographer Colin McLaughlin to capture the entire event — check out that gallery above.





Joel Michael Howard Pete And Mary (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 29, 2014 1:12pm | StereoGum

New York songwriter Joel Michael Howard has been releasing some superb melancholy guitar pop lately. “Pete And Mary,” from Howard’s upcoming full-length Love All Night, continues that streak. There’s a simple, powerful song at the core, built on Howard’s charismatic falsetto and some classic chord changes. But by the end it’s been expanded into an epic, buoyed by eerie strings, a steady bass hum, dramatic piano, and heavenly choral oohs and ahs. Imagine Destroyer covering something off the Shins’ Chutes Too Narrow and you’ll be in the ballpark. Hear “Pete And Mary” below.

Listen: Stars – “No One Is Lost”
Sep 29, 2014 1:10pm | CMJ


Next month, Stars will follow-up 2012’s The North with No One Is Lost on ATO. We’ve already heard the jittery club banger From The Night and the tender, soft-focus track Turn It Up and today the band dropped the album’s title track. No One Is Lost goes back in the other direction, favoring big, bold synths over sepia vintage passivity. It’s worth noting that despite the fact that the track sounds happy, its lyrics are, “Put your hands up cause everybody dies.” So there’s that. Listen below.

The post Listen: Stars – “No One Is Lost” appeared first on CMJ.


DJ Mustard Ghetto Tales (Feat. Jay 305 & Tee Cee) Video
Sep 29, 2014 1:08pm | StereoGum

DJ Mustard already produced our favorite rap album of the year so far — YG’s My Krazy Life — but he’s also releasing an album of his own called 10 Summers, the follow-up to his fantastic 2013 mixtape, Ketchup. The new video for “Ghetto Tales” features Jay 305 and Tee Cee, who are driven around Los Angeles by Mustard in an Impala. You essentially become a passenger in the car with them, and the visuals slide by with relaxed ease of hot summer day. Head over to MissInfo now to watch it.

The Bug Function / Void Video
Sep 29, 2014 1:06pm | StereoGum

British producer the Bug worked with South London directors Factory Fifteen and the Creators Project to create a stunning music video/short film that combines two songs — “Function” and “Void” — from his recent release, Angels and Devils. The black-and-white clip chronicles a man’s monotonous routine in a futuristic totalitarian society, until suddenly his world crumbles around him — literally. It’s a fittingly bleak narrative for a pair of thought-provoking and mournful songs. Watch below.

Weezer jam out on the Moon in video for Back To The Shack watch
Sep 29, 2014 12:53pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Weezer has shared the video for “Back To The Shack”, the nostalgia-heavy lead single to their excellent new album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End. Directed by Warren Fu (HAIM, Daft Punk), the clip portrays the band rocking out on the Moon, including some sweet slow-motion, zero-G guitar heroics. It’s a great clip and all, but knowing how nerdy Weezer is collectively, I think they would’ve made it at least a little realistic by wearing some kind of protective suit. Or maybe they’re all just wearing some futuristic, invisible suits ripped out of some anime most of us have never seen?

Take one giant leap for all mankind and watch it below (via Noisey).

Everything Will Be Alright In The End is due out October 7th via Republic Records.

In related news, frontman Rivers Cuomo recently appeared on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. They discussed Cuomo’s writing process for the new album, the release of Pinkerton, the multitude of myths surrounding Cuomo’s personal life, and more. Check out the full discussion here.

Robert Plant @ BAM - 9/27/14

Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifts released their new album lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar earlier this month and just brought their tour to the NYC-area for three dates. First, they hit Port Chester's Capitol Theater on September 25 and then came to BAM for shows on Saturday (9/27) and Sunday (9/28) which were part of Nonesuch Records at BAM. We caught Friday's show, which included five songs from the new album and seven Zeppelin songs including "Thank You," "Going to California," "Whole Lotta Love" and more. Olivia Chaney opened and the drummer of the Sensational Space Shifters sat in with her. Pictures of that one are in this post.

As you may know, Led Zeppelin are in the process of reissuing albums and the next two up are IV and Houses of the Holy which come out October 28. They've now shared the "mix minus piano" version of "The Rain Song," which you can hear below (via Pitchfork).

More pictures and Plant's setlist from Saturday, also below...

Stream Zola Jesus Taiga
Sep 29, 2014 12:52pm | StereoGum

On her new album Taiga, the former noise-goth queen Zola Jesus moves completely into the light, delivering an LP’s worth of music that welcomes way more than it repels. The songs on Taiga, like “Go (Blank Sea)” and the glorious first single “Dangerous Days,” still have that old epic, slow-motion incandescence to them. But the arrangements are cleaner and clearer than they’ve ever been, and they do more to highlight the melodies. Meanwhile, the mix foregrounds Nika Roza Danilova’s enormous voice; it’s way more prominent than it’s been on previous Zola Jesus records. And right now, you can stream the full album at The New York Times.

Taiga is out 10/7 on Mute.
