Mar 25, 2015 11:58am | Fact Magazine

This year, FACT TV’s Bryan McKay, Chris Kelly and John Twells packed up and headed to Austin, Texas for South By Southwest 2015 and talked to some of the festival’s most exciting artists.

If you weren’t listening to Sicko Mobb in 2014 you were doing it wrong. The Chicago duo’s infectious bop sound went from local parties to dancefloors worldwide, and we caught up with the duo at SXSW and got the word on their next mixtape, Super Saiyan 2.

The Week In Rap: Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, & Major-Label Raps Age Of Weirdness
Mar 25, 2015 11:51am | StereoGum
Not that long ago, major recording companies employed whole offices full of people whose whole purpose was to shape and mold rappers, to turn them into hitmakers. Maybe those people still exist. Maybe they’re up late at night, trying to figure out how to make Kid Ink happen. But the big labels, for the most […]



Tink Ratchet Commandments Video
Mar 25, 2015 11:47am | StereoGum
Tink and Timbaland continue their partnership in the video for her latest song “Ratchet Commandments.” The Chicago rapper dons a series of costumes from choir girl to Egyptian queen to preach her anti-Instagram “you can’t sit with us” message that might be catchy but suffers from some serious slut-shaming vibes. The song takes place in […]



Q&A: OK Go On 10 Years Of Making Viral Videos
Mar 25, 2015 11:35am | StereoGum
One Of Those Treadmill Guys. Regardless of how many years he is eventually blessed to squeeze out of this corporeal existence, this is the epitaph OK Go vocalist/guitarist Damian Kulash is absolutely certain will be carved into his tombstone. And he might very well be right. After all, the Los Angeles-by-way-of-Chicago indie rockers’ 2006 video […]



ASAP Rocky announces new album At.Long.Last.ASAP
Mar 25, 2015 11:30am | Cosequence Of Sound

ASAP Rocky has revealed details of his next studio album. The follow-up to LongLiveASAP is titled At.Long.Last.ASAP, and features contributions from Lykke Li, FKA twigs, and Clams Casino.

The new album was executive produced by Danger Mouse and recorded in both London and Los Angeles.

In an interview with GQ, Rocky explained the album’s title: Im claiming ownership of my legacy. Look at it: At.Long.Last.ASAP. A-L-L-A. Like slang for Allah. Its the return of the god MC. Im named after Rakim, and Im finally facing what it means: I was born to do this shit. And I hope I get to do it for a very long time.

In a separate interview with Billboard, the Harlem MC discussed the diversity of the album: “People really don’t know the other side of me. The deeper side, the more musical side, the more intellectual side. When I first came on the scene it was more of this trendy, bourgeois, pizazz attitude. That’s still me but at the end of the day I think that kind of overshadowed the whole purpose of me doing what I do. I’m an incredibly diverse artist, I’m a universal artist. At least that’s how I see it.” As such, the album will feature “psychedelic ’60s London and introspection,” Rocky singing, and acoustic guitar, according to GQ.

A release date has not yet been announced, but Rock confirmed the album is ...


Action Bronson played his 1st of 2 T5 shows, threw a fan off stage (pics, review, video), made a song w/ Earl Sweatshirt
Mar 25, 2015 11:25am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Sean O'Connell

It's safe to say Action Bronson's image has reached a hyperbolic magnitude. From a humble beginning of playground raps and obscure chef references, Action has grown over the past few years into a king-size connoisseur of all things absurd. While his lyrics have morphed from hard-nosed Queens-centric wordplay purism to impossible fantasy, Action's live performances have remained crowd-pleasing spectacles from the jump. The Flushing rapper's on-stage antics have been well documented on social media, and through the marketing maelstrom that Vice has orchestrated since signing Action back in 2012. Whether it be throwing televisions into the crowd or running out of the venue with fans, Action has continuously raised his own bar on noteworthy performances.

Last night's (3/24) show at Terminal 5 featured many of these same stunts, with Bronson throwing packages and stage rushers into the crowd (video of the latter below), unsuccessfully attempting to crowd surf, and finding his way to the bar at the back of the venue. Yet Bronson, who was celebrating the release of his major label debut Mr.Wonderful, seemed to have more interest in slowing things down. Action came out with his entire crew in tow: producers Party Supplies, longtime collaborator Meyhem Lauren, producer Alchemist as DJ, and fan favorite hypeman Big Body Bes. Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg provided a DJ set before Meyhem Lauren warmed the crow...


Plucking heart strings and melting faces: Slow To Speaks month in house and techno
Mar 25, 2015 11:23am | Fact Magazine

Slow to Speak, the duo behind New York record store Dope Jams, have taken over FACT’s house and techno column.

For almost a decade now, Francis Englehardt and Paul Nickerson have run dance music’s most iconoclastic record store, and are as enthusiastic and enlightening with their recommendations as they are ruthless with their takedowns – just ask any of the high-profile DJs who’ve found themselves in their line of fire.

Every month, Slow to Speak round up the best new 12s around or at least, thats the plan. In case you havent noticed, these dudes march to the beat of their own drum so stuff from other years and genres invariably features alongside newer club-ready material.

If you’re by any chance drifting through Brooklyn this weekend, make sure you stop by the Dope Jams Spring Bash which will be taking place on Friday March 27 at Good Room. You can snag tickets right here.

Thin Lips Nothing Weird (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 25, 2015 11:22am | StereoGum
“Nothing Weird” initiates with an anxious torrent of situational descriptions, visible conversational pauses that indicate some kind of internal conflict. Allusions to nail biting, tongue biting, and nervous glances surface before Chrissy Tashjian sings, “You’re leaving today/ But I’m staying put/ I’d follow you there/ But I would just shadow you into a rut.” This […]



PJ Bond releasing new LP on Xtra Mile/Black Numbers (listen)
Mar 25, 2015 11:20am | Brooklyn Vegan

PJ Bond has a long history of playing in punk-related bands including Outsmarting Simon, The Color Fred and more. And like many others with punk histories have done, he now makes folky singer/songwriter stuff. He's got a new album called Where Were You? coming out May 5 on Xtra Mile Recordings worldwide (who have put out music by other artists who like folk and punk, like Against Me! and Frank Turner) and Black Numbers in the US. We've got the premiere of new single "The Better Option," which you can check out below.

Toro y Moi releases new single Run Baby Run listen
Mar 25, 2015 11:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

Chaz Bundick returns as Toro y Moi on April 7th with his fourth full-length release, What For? (via Carpark Records). Previously revealed singles “Empty Nesters” and “Buffalo” have teased Bundick’s new fascination with ’70s disco and funk sounds. While the album’s latest track “Run Baby Run” continues to mine retro styles, it plays in a slightly different genre sandbox.

The song still shines bright and easy like what we’ve heard from What For? so far, but the hip-swaying grooves are replaced with head-bopping psych-rock jams. There’s a very “peace and love”, mellow vibe that contradicts lyrics like, “Run baby run/ You’ve got so many things to do/ Sleep while you can/ ‘Cause tomorrow will not feel new.” Check it out:

What For? Tracklist:
01. What You Want
02. Buffalo
03. The Flight
04. Empty Nesters
05. Ratcliff
06. Lilly
07. Spell It Out
08. Half Dome
09. Run Baby Run
10. Yeah Right



Hollow Sunshine Careful Travel (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 25, 2015 11:18am | StereoGum
Hollow Sunshine’s music occupies some liminal space in between shoegaze and sludgy metal, imbued with all the melodic sensibilities of the former while embracing the slow build-up and attention to detail of the latter. “Careful Travel” — the second single from their upcoming sophomore LP Bring Gold — is on the softer side of the […]
