Listen to an early version of George Harrisons Dark Horse
Sep 16, 2014 1:05pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Next week, the first six solo albums from George Harrison will be released as a deluxe box set. Spanning eight discs, George Harrison: The Apple Years 1968-1975 features the newly remastered LPs accompanied by a bevy of unreleased live recordings and various demos and outtakes. Today, the Harrison estate has unveiled one such bonus track in the form of an early version of 1974s “Dark Horse”.
The title track to Harrisons fifth solo album, the original “Dark Horse” featured nearly a dozen accompanying singers and musicians. This demo strips away the added layers and leaves only Harrison, his lithe acoustic guitar, and the gentle noise of a few backing harmonies. Though not that much different from the final product, this truly “solo” rendition feels a bit more romantic, especially as Harrison delivers slightly cleaner, more robust vocals.
Listen in below (via Rolling Stone).
George Harrison: The Apple Years 1968-1975 is due out September 23rd via Capitol Records. Pre-orders are ongoing.
In addition to the throngs of archival material, the set also includes a DVD of several video features, notably a short film by Harrisons widow Olivia, and a book of essays and unpublished photos. Other standout tracks include a previously-unreleased alternate take of “The Inner Light,” the previously-unreleased “Almost Shankara”, the CD debut o...

WKRP in Cincinnati to be reissued with most of its original soundtrack
Sep 16, 2014 12:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound
For a show about a rock radio station, the music in the classic sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati was an integral part of its charm. There were running jokes involving songs like “Fly Me To The Moon”, and a soundtrack featuring everyone from AC/DC to Blondie to Neil Young. However, when the show’s music licensing deal expired, producers decided to avoid expensive royalties by using generic “sound-alikes” recorded by studio musician. Even when its first season was initially reissued on DVD, the episodes were still bogged down by replacement music.
As God as my witness, I thought turkeys would fly before the show’s original soundtrack would get restored for a DVD release. Fortunately WKRP In Cincinnati, which ran for four seasons from 1978 to 1982, will soon re-released with most of its iconic, classic rock-heavy soundtrack.WKRP in Cincinnati: The Complete Series is set to hit stores on October 28th via Shout! Factory.
Though Shout! Factory managed to get the rights of most of the show’s extensive soundtrack, they didn’t get everything they wanted. In a press release, the label admitted, in a few cases, it was simply impossible. A notable absence is Pink Floyd’s “Dogs”, which was heavily featured in the show’s most popular episode “Turkeys Away”. Other choice songs missing include The Beach Boys’ “Surfin’ USA&rdq...

THE CATCH UP: Progress Night.Rhetoric mixtape and fixation in the digital age
Sep 16, 2014 12:44pm | Chart Attack
The Catch Up is Anupa Mistry's monthly look at Canadian hip-hop and R&B. In this first edition, the new mixtape from a Toronto rapper offers a possible solution to constant online satiation.
When I was asked to put together a monthly feature about local and national hip-hop and R&B, I felt unsure. One of the downsides of being a writer living in todays future is that youre never not into something. Yes, I called it a downside, but Im old: I remember life before the internet, when a single album would seize my mental for months. Right now, sated is the new neutral state. These are times of musical abundance and were always full, the daily harvest of SoundCloud and Bandcamp links is bountiful. While Im still totally clueless as to how much money the new, wide open musical marketplace provides or how new players can accrue longevity its undoubtedly a really fucking great time for anyone everywhere who wants to make, or listen to, music. But, to continue with the farming metaphors (all apologies to rural Canadians): it can be difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.
When was the last time you heard something by a new artist and it set off an internal "yooooooooooooooooooo" lasting longer than, like, three listens?

Sleaford Mods playing first US show at NYC's The Wick (BrooklynVegan Presents)
Sep 16, 2014 12:28pm | Brooklyn Vegan
BrooklynVegan is very excited to be presenting the first American show by UK duo Sleaford Mods, which will happen in NYC at The Wick on November 29. Supporting bill is still TBA but tickets are on sale now. Here's what we wrote about the 'Mods earlier this year:
Somewhere between punk, hiphop and spoken word lie UK duo Sleaford Mods. (They are neither mods, nor from Sleaford. They're from Nottingham.) Jason Williamson spews a tapestry of bile over low-tech, muscular backing by Andrew Fearn, the result is somewhere between The Fall, McClusky, Happy Mondays and John Cooper Clark. The pair have been making music for eight years now but really started to get attention with last year's terrific Austerity Dogs and look to go even wider with the just released Divide and Exit. On it Sleaford Mods are in full rebellion mode. Who against? Whadda you got? Like Protomartyr's Joe Casey, Williamson hold equal contempt for the rich, conservatives, liberals, phonies in general, idiots, "jolly fuckers," etc all via a nonstop torrent of brilliantly, hilariously profane lyrics.You can stream Divide and Exit, as well as previous releases and a few videos and a short Quietus documentary about the band, in this post.
The Wick show is Sleaford Mods' only North American date at the moment but they're on tour in the UK and Europe throughout the fall. All dates are listed, along with video...

Mondkopf debuts grindcore-influenced project Extreme Precautions
Sep 16, 2014 12:13pm | Fact Magazine
The truth is, Paul Régimbeau, aka Mondkopf, was sick of techno.
After finished off the last Mondkopf LP Hadès, he was thinking of following it up with another techno EP, but since he was mostly listening to “Brutal Truth, Assuck, Napalm Death and Pig Destroyer at that time,” something else emerged instead. Replacing the usual 4/4 with blast beats, Régimbeau finished I, his debut album under the Extreme Precautions moniker, in a week and the results are, shall we say, explosive.
You can hear the first taster of the record below, and it does exactly what it says on the tin, grubbing up the rust-clad spirit of the Birmingham-birthed grindcore sound and giving it a fresh lick of electronic paint.
I is due for release on November 10 on Régimbeau’s own In Paradisum imprint, and you can pre-order the album here.

Cleansides Finest 3" width="685" height="685" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-228766" />
The self-described shitbag drops an eagerly-anticipated mixtape and shares another video.
Yung Gleesh secured a spot in our list of rappers to watch in 2014 with his combination of Guccish menace and based irreverence, and he’s back with a new mixtape that delivers on both counts.
As promised in his interview with FACT TV at SXSW, Cleansides Finest 3 is a more personal mixtape than last year’s Your Favorite Rapper’s Favorite Rapper, a genre-hopping effort on which Gleesh tried to “snatch” other rappers’ fan bases.
Including previously-premiered singles ‘Water’, ‘Gleechie’ and ‘Since When’, the mixtape features production by Atlanta regulars Zaytoven, Dolan Beats, YDG, TrapMoneyBenny and more. Stream/download the mixtape and watch the video for ‘Trappin Benny’ below.
