Nov 25, 2014 7:25pm | Fact Magazine
The Donnie Trumpet-led quartet give the first taste of their forthcoming album.
The Social Experiment is a four-piece band comprised of Chance The Rapper, Donnie Trumpet, Peter Cottontale, and Nate Fox. The Social Experiment are about to release their debut album, Surf, and have just unveiled ‘Sunday Candy,’ the first track off the new LP.
Surf is led by the band’s trumpet player, the aptly-named Donnie Trumpet, who said of the album: “We’re working on all this music together, but this project in particular is a Donnie Trumpet project. My music, with their influence and ideas, plus us all coming up with crazy shit to do. But at the end of the day, it’s my directing.”
According to Trumpet, ‘Sunday Candy’ is “a great representation of [The Social Experiment's] collaborative efforts. It’s my curation, but then bringing it to the table with all these beautiful people and including them in their own way. Jamila sang on that hook, then I brought it to the collective. Peter added some great layers of texture and helped produce, Nate added a bunch of drums, tons of our friends from Chicago played instruments and added their ideas.”

Chance The Rapper has shared “Sunday Candy”, the first track from his upcoming album with The Social Experiment, entitled Surf. As per the album art (above), and a recent interview with Billboard, Surf is officially credited to The Social Experiment and trumpet player Donnie Trumpet (aka Nico Segal).

Burroughs’ rare Throbbing Gristle-assisted project to be reissued for the first time.
Beat Generation icon William S. Burroughs’ released a number of spoken word projects throughout his recording career, both on his own and with collaborators such as Arthur Russell and Kurt Cobain.
One of Burroughs’ more difficult to find records was 1981′s Nothing Here Now But The Recordings, an experimental tape recorder project that featured Throbbing Gristle. The project began in 1980 when Throbbing Gristle’s Genesis P-Orridge and Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson met with Burroughs in his New York apartment to go through his experimental sound recordings. The Throbbing Gristle members compiled various pieces of Burroughs’ work to form the album, which includes ”spoken word ‘cut-ups’, collaged field recordings from his travels and his flirtations with EVP recording techniques.”

Post-punk goliaths The Pop Group announce first new album in 35 years
Nov 25, 2014 6:10pm | Fact Magazine
The reunited rockers have recorded a new album with the help of pop producer Paul Epworth.
The Pop Group first gained notoriety in the late 1970s for their dissonant brand of experimental post-punk that incorporated elements of dub and free jazz. The influential four-piece split up in 1981 before reuniting in 2010 and embarking on their first ever UK tour earlier this year.
The Pop Group have today unveiled Citizen Zombie, their first album since releasing For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? way back in 1980. Although the band are known for their envelope-pushing, experimental sound, they have enlisted none other than pop super-producer Paul Epworth (the man behind Adele’s 21) to produce the album.
“The energy is still there, the ideas are still there, it still fizzes with a life that most young bands just dont have,” Epworth said of working with The Pop Group.
The Pop Group’s Citizen Zombie will be released on February 25. You can stream the album’s title track below.

Williamsburg venue/bar Spike Hill is closing soon
Nov 25, 2014 5:49pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Spike Hill during NYC Popfest 2012 (more by
Death by Audio closed last weekend and New Year's eve will be the last night for Glasslands, both making way for Vice's new offices. And now comes word of another Williamsburg live music venue closing: Spike Hill, which is right by the Bedford Ave. L stop, will likely shutter for good before the end of 2014 reports Gothamist.
The employee, who asked to remain anonymous, was cagey about offering a final date for the closure, but conceded that "early December" was a workable timeline. He wasn't sure about future plans for the space, whether it would be kept intact or torn down, but said he didn't think "the building is worth anywhere near what the real estate is worth." One thing was definitely clear: "The building's under contract for a lot of money."Spike Hill's venue hosted bands most nights, often without cover, and was home to NYC Popfest events for the last few years. The last show currently on Spike Hill's calendar is December 6 with Cold Blood Club, Of Clocks & Clouds, The Highway, Bondage & Discipline and Exiles.
December 6, incidentally, is the same day Glasslands is hosting an event called "A Dance Party Funeral for the neighborhood of Willamsburg." $10 at the door for that one.

Young Ejecta Your Planet
Nov 25, 2014 5:24pm | StereoGum
Young Ejecta has followed up “Welcome To Love” with “Your Planet,” another new track from their forthcoming mini-album The Planet. It’s a cool one for the duo: after a short vocal intro from Leanne Macomber, her voice fades into the background as Joel Ford’s spacey production takes the wheel. Steady synths pulsate in the background as little bubbles shoot forth from around it. Ejecta tracks are usually pretty free-flowing and loose, but this takes it to a new level. It’s exploring some new territory for the group, and the title even hints at some otherworldliness: “your planet,” not mine. Listen below.

Jian Ghomeshi Withdraws Lawsuit Against CBC
Nov 25, 2014 4:55pm | StereoGum
The CBC fired longtime on-air personality and Canadian music-scene champion Jian Ghomeshi last month amidst allegations that he beat several women against their consent during BDSM encounters. Ghomeshi sued his former employers for $55 million, a lawsuit the CBC moved to dismiss. Now a CBC spokesman has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Ghomeshi has withdrawn the lawsuit and “will pay the CBC’s $18,000 in legal costs as part of his settlement agreement.” Ghomeshi was originally scheduled to be the guest at Amanda Palmer’s concert tonight in Toronto, but Palmer wisely decided to remove him from the lineup. The Toronto police department has opened an active investigation into the allegations against Ghomeshi.

Tim Vocals made his name singing about gruesome activities in angelic tones. On the new single “I’m Sick,” he gets weird, and it’s wonderful.

Ariel Pink takeover: Im Ready to Sacrifice
Nov 25, 2014 4:00pm | Gorilla Vs Bear
“Pliny states that on the 6th day of the moon, Druid priests dressed in white robes would prepare a banquet beneath the tree and bring up to it two white bulls. A priest would then climb the tree and cut down a branch of mistletoe with a golden sickle. The white bulls would be sacrificed while the attendants prayed to a god; the mistletoe was then given to livestock in a drink which, it was believed, was an antidote to all poisons and would make any barren animal fertile.” — Jorge Elbrecht
Jian Ghomeshi quietly withdraws $55 million CBC lawsuit
Nov 25, 2014 3:43pm | Chart Attack
In October, Jian Ghomeshi was fired from his popular CBC culture program Q, following a string of sexual violence allegations. He has remained hidden since then despite a claim that he will "meet allegations directly", and deleted his Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Now, it seems less likely he'll emerge from his hole anytime soon: his former employer and The Toronto Star report that Jian Ghomeshi's $55 million bad faith lawsuit against the CBC has been dropped, and a settlement reached. The terms dictate Ghomeshi must pay $18,000 to the CBC "in legal expenses." But it's far from over. Toronto police are still investigating Ghomeshi, and the CBC will undergo a (dubious at best) third party internal probe.
You can sign a petition of support for Ghomeshi's accusers here, and read Kelli Korducki on the Canadian media culture that allowed Ghomeshi to thrive.
