Charli XCX Break The Rules (Tiësto Remix)
Sep 30, 2014 2:31pm | StereoGum

Charli XCX’s sophomore album is now a few months away, but with the era of “Boom Clap” probably ending soon, the record label seems to be betting on “Break The Rules” taking its place on the charts. They’ve just released a Tiësto remix for the song, which means the label’s bringing out the big guns. The remix turns the song into an absolute dance floor monster, upping the intensity level by a thousand. Listen below.

Watch: Cathedrals – “Unbound” Video
Sep 30, 2014 2:17pm | CMJ


San Francisco synth pop duo Cathedrals have a new self-titled EP out on Neon Gold this month. The glimmering Unbound is one of the EP’s lead singles, a sensual mid-tempo synth jam, aglow with a catchy interplay between male and female vocals. The newly unveiled video for the song is a beautiful portrait of love and its complications, featuring Maria Kochetkova (the principle ballerina in the San Francisco ballet) and a breathtaking lighted sculptural framework known as Sugar Cubes. Check out the video below, and catch Cathedrals at CMJ Music Marathon in the fall.

Sly Stones first drum machine experiments revisited on Stone Flower label retrospective
Sep 30, 2014 2:11pm | Fact Magazine

Light In The Attic revisits a key moment in the funk god’s artistry.

Sly and the Family Stone were riding high in 1970, with the hits Stand! topping the charts. Meanwhile, their ever-elusive frontman was occupied with Stone Flower, an Atlantic imprint that he headed.

Stone Flower only released four seven-inch singles over its brief lifespan, but the “pioneering, peculiar, minimal electro-funk sound” that the label established would inform Sly’s next step: the canonical There’s A Riot Goin’ On (a top pick in our list of the best albums of the 1970s).

While credited to individual artists, each record was “written by Sylvester Stewart/Produced and arranged by Sly Stone,” and the Stone Flower singles mark Sly’s first experiments with the then-brand new Maestro Rhythm King drum machine. In 1971, There’s A Riot Goin’ On would later become the first major record to feature a drum machine.

Stone Flower is the latest target of reissue specialists Light In The Attic. In addition to the songs of the label’s original 45s, Im Just Like You: Slys Stone Flower 1969-70 includes ten previously-unreleased cuts from the archives, remastered from the original tapes. The set also features an exclusive new interview with Sly and in-depth liner notes from the participants of the Stone Flower era...

Queen Love Kills (The Ballad)
Sep 30, 2014 1:58pm | StereoGum

In 1984, Queen singer Freddie Mercury released a solo single called “Love Kills.” The tune, a Giorgio Moroder-produced rippling-synth disco track, was somewhat poorly received at the time; it was nominated for Worst Song at the Razzies after Moroder included it in his soundtrack for the reissued 1927 silent film Metropolis. But “Love Kills” has endured in the popular imagination to the extent that Little Boots covered it in 2009, and Queen have been performing a rock ’n’ roll rendition of the song with Adam Lambert in concert lately. Turns out the rock version of “Love Kills” is not new: Today the band released a guitar-laden take on the song recorded with Mercury before his death. It’s one of the unreleased tracks on Queen Forever, the upcoming retrospective comp that also includes the group’s recently unearthed Michael Jackson collab. I don’t hate the original or anything, but “Love Kills” kills as a power ballad. Listen below.

Richmond thrashers Iron Reagan (who feature members of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, and Darkest Hour) released their new LP Tyranny of Failure earlier this month on Relapse and they've since added more tour dates to their schedule. They've got a West Coast run with Eyehategod (who they played NYC with in July) and Power Trip, but before that they'll hit NYC on October 19 at Saint Vitus opening for Only Crime (who feature members of Good Riddance, Converge, Black Flag, Descendents, Tegan & Sara, Modern Life Is War and others). Also on that bill is promising Philly band Ma Jolie and tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the new-ish video for "Miserable Failure" from the new Iron Reagan LP, below...

Chumped announce debut LP, share track, add tour dates; Beach Slang EP out now & streaming
Sep 30, 2014 1:26pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Chumped at BK Bazaar earlier this month (more by Mimi Hong)

We recently mentioned that following their two EPs, Brooklyn's Chumped would be releasing their first full length later this year. It's now been announced that the album's called Teenage Retirement and it will be out on November 18 via Anchorless Records. Its first single, "Songs About Boats," recently premiered over at Noisey and from the sound of it, Chumped are continuing to make terrifically executed real-deal pop punk. If the term "pop punk" still puts a bad taste in your mouth, "Songs About Boats" is the kind of song that could remind you that you do in fact have a scratched-up copy of Dookie at your parents' house, and that there is a part of you that sometimes wants nothing more than palm-muted power chords done right. Chumped do it right, so take a listen for yourself, below.

Chumped also have a bunch of tour dates coming up, including two in their hometown. First, they open the NYC stop of the Cheap Girls / Beach Slang / Lee Corey Oswald / Signals Midwest tour happening October 14 at Saint Vitus (tickets), and then as discussed their tour with PUP hits Mercury Lounge on November 7 (tickets). Since we last spoke, Typefighter were added to that show too. Updated list of Chumped's dates below.

Speaking of Beach Slang, their excellent new EP is out today (9/30) via Tiny Engines, and t...


Joey Bada$$ shares new single and video, Christ Conscious watch
Sep 30, 2014 1:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Following a handful of mixtapes and EPs, including Summer Knights and 1999, Brooklyn MC Joey Bada$$ is at last set to release his proper full-length debut. Entitled B4.Da.$$., the LP is due is due out in the coming months. In anticipation, he’s unleashed the lead single, “Christ Conscious”.

Over a minimal backdrop of faded beats, Bada$$ spits boastful, threatening rhymes about “coming for the top dollar.” If his slick and shrewd wordplay is any indication, Bada$$’s peers should be shaking in their Timbs. Here’s just a snapshot of the vitriol he so effortlessly doles out to both the nonbelievers and competition:

Yes, I guess the word is out, we coming for the top dollar
Top rottweiler, since I popped my collar
Niggas say they hit us, they ain’t ever shot nada
Me? I’d rather not snitch up on my own problems
Cause I’m a microphone killer
Especially when my head is gone off the liquor
Specially educated, heavily medicated
Give me that beat and I’ll put you next to Dilla, my nigga
Flow sweeter than vanilla
Tell these haters beat it, can’t Jackson thriller
I’m the nigga that you see when you’re in the mirror
Say my name five times, this what I deliver

Below, check out the video for “Christ Conscious”, which sees Bada$$...
