Mar 31, 2015 2:54pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Long-running, genre-crossing Norwegian band Jaga Jazzist are releasing a new album titled Starfire on June 2 via Ninja Tune. The title track is out now, and it's a jammy, proggy, synthy epic that covers a lot of ground in its nearly 9-minute running time. Listen below.

The band, whose leader/composer Lars Horntveth recently relocated to LA, will also go on a North American tour this June in support of the album. The tour brings them to NYC on June 20 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/3) at 10 AM.

DeJ Loaf On MY Own & Kid Ink Be Real (Feat. DeJ Loaf) Videos
Mar 31, 2015 2:47pm | StereoGum
The predisposition toward immediacy over longevity has doomed many an artist in today's popular music landscape, regardless of genre, but especially in hip-hop. After the success of DeJ Loaf's breakout "Try Me" died down, it was unclear if the Detroit rapper would remain relevant, but she took the electricity from the buzz generated by that hit and fed it into her mixtape, Sell Sole, which earned a top 20 spot on our best rap releases of 2014. A string of show-stealing guest verses and hooks has established her place as well. Today, we get the latest visual installment off of Sell Sole for the self-affirming "On MY Own" as well as a video for her Kid Ink assist "Be Real" off his Full Speed album. Oh how quickly the rags turn to riches. In her video, DeJ is in black and white, accentuating the gleaming Rolls Royce Phantom she whips around between cuts of behind-the-scenes footage in which she rubs elbows with hip-hop A-listers. In Kid Ink's clip, she flashes jewelry with the best of them, and is the perfect complement to his opulent flash and shirtless exploits. "On My Own" up top, "Be Real" down bottom. Watch.

Kanye Wests headlining slot at Ottawa Bluesfest sparks competing petitions
Mar 31, 2015 2:46pm | Chart Attack

When this year's Ottawa Bluesfest lineup leaked last week, the biggest controversy was that the artists weren't "bluesy" enough. In retrospect, that just seems quaint. Yesterday, Kanye West was added as a headliner. And, considering everything he does seems to court controversy on at least a couple of levels (case in point: just later that day he was at the TIDAL "declaration" signing), it's caused an online backlash.

Echoing his appointment at Glastonbury, but on a smaller-scale (because, you know, Ottawa), an embarrassing petition has sprouted up to replace Kanye, arguably one of the biggest headliners in Bluesfest history, with someone "better."

Of course, "better" is as coded a term as it is subjective, but it hasn't stopped 832 fans from signing the petition, and another 118 people from joining a Facebook group called "Stop Kanye West At Ottawa Bluesfest." Reasons for signing include "Because fuck off."

If you don't like it, start a petition. Otherwise, we'll see you in Ottawa on Friday, July 10.

The Black Market: The Month In Metal March 2015
Mar 31, 2015 2:41pm | StereoGum
It seemed like every day of March brought with it a new controversy or calamity worthy of coverage here: There was the Ghost Bath hoax; the revelation that Lars Ulrich was to blame for the absence of bass on ...And Justice For All; the bizarre dissolution of Lord Mantis; the Liturgy album and its concurrent stream of notable quotes (e.g., "I didn't make a record that tells a story; it's a story that tells a record. I wanted to make the most important thing possible -- to invent a new philosophy that goes with a new music and a new way of making art and living life"); the ugly breakup of the mighty Immortal; and -- of course -- the news that H&M had created a line of black metal-inspired Coachella duds, which was ALSO revealed to be a hoax.

Lower Dens takeover: David Wojnarowicz
Mar 31, 2015 2:40pm | Gorilla Vs Bear

Along with people like Kathy Acker and Robert Mapplethorpe, David Wojnarowicz worked to bring gay culture out of its campy, self-mocking state and turn it into something that could stand beside as opposed to in opposition to straight culture. His is also one of the queer and AIDS activism stories that helped open my eyes to the nature of oppression in the US. The last line of his collection of writing, Close To the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration: Smell the flowers while you can. — Jana Hunter, Lower Dens

Banditos share new song Still Sober (After All These Beers) listen
Mar 31, 2015 2:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Banditos don’t operate under the guise of subtlety. The Nashville alt-country outfit has built a reputation off of their gritty, whiskey soaked sound. It’s a vibe carried over from lead vocalist Corey Parsons and banjo player Steve Pierce’s days as buskers in Birmingham, Alabama. This gruff nature found balance when they added two classically trained musicians, drummer Randy Wade and guitarist Jeffrey Salter, as well as church choir vocalist Mary Beth Richardson and bassist Danny Vines.

Three years and over 600 shows later, the dirty rockers are finally ready to release their debut full-length. The self-titled LP was recorded with producer Andrija Tokic (Alabam Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff), and is due out May 12th through Bloodshot Records. As a taste of what the country sextet will deliver on the album, they’ve shared their latest rowdy single, “Still Sober (After All These Beers)”.

“I wrote the first verse and chorus for this song about the same time we moved into our band house in Nashville,” Pierce told Consequence of Sound. “It just sort of came to me one morning as a general complaint from each morning after having so much fun with all our friends, but I knew it wasn’t going to stop anytime soon … and really, why should it? Corey, as usual, could read my mind and helped me finish it up lyrically while keeping it humorous … We coined &#8216...


Watch Ad-Rock Give Advice To Teenage Girls
Mar 31, 2015 2:24pm | StereoGum
Rookie puts out a lot of great editorial and video content, but one of my personal favorites is their series "Ask A Grown Man" in which older male celebrities answer teen girls' questions about relationships, both social and romantic. TV On The Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, Pavement's Stephen Malkmus, and Run The Jewels are among the musicians who've participated in the past, and today the magazine published their latest installment. Normally I would hate watching older dudes pander to the sensitivities of young girls, but so far most of the musicians have shared some really pointed advice, and the Beastie Boys' Adam Horovitz (bka Ad-Rock) is married to the very cool Kathleen Hanna, so he probably knows a thing or two about how to not act like a jerk. In this video, Horovitz responds to a series of questions about burgeoning relationships, consoling one girl that a first kiss is really not that big of a deal ("There's something really special about being really close for like, a moment") and assuring another that boys aren't always as intuitive as girls might like to think they are ("I don't like to generalize, but I'm going to. Boys for the most part are not very observant, or all that smart, for that matter"). Horovitz also shares some sound advice on what to do when you feel desperately self-conscious and depressed. Watch the entire video below.

Meat Wave touring, playing Elvis Guesthouse before Perfect Pussy's Weekend at Baby's (dates & EP stream)
Mar 31, 2015 2:23pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Chicago garage punks Meat Wave are one of the bands playing Perfect Pussy's Weekend at Baby's All Right this weekend. They're on the sold-out 4/3 show with PP, Sick Feeling and Mannequin Pussy, and it turns out that show's part of a short tour for the band.

The tour has them in NYC a night before the Perfect Pussy show to play a smaller gig at Baby's sister venue Elvis Guesthouse on Thursday (4/2). That starts at 10 PM and is totally free. All dates are listed below.

Earlier this year, Meat Wave put out their new EP, Brother, which follows 2012's self-titled LP. It's seven tracks of fast shakin' punk, and certainly doesn't overstay its welcome.

Jerry Paper celebrating new LP 'Carousel' at Silent Barn, playing Northside w/ Beach Fossils, Frankie Cosmos & more
Mar 31, 2015 2:21pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Brooklyn's Jerry Paper (aka Lucas Nathan) could almost have come straight of the Tim & Eric screen: defiantly weird, part hotel lounge act/Harry Nilsson/Brian Wilson with a little laptop R&B, and yet oddly appealing. (So Ariel Pink-ish? Kinda but not really.) His new album, Carousel, just came out today (3/31) via Bayonet and you can check out the strange album trailer and an Rdio stream of the whole album, below.

Jerry will be celebrating Carousel's released on Wednesday (4/1) at Silent Barn with Helado Negro, Trabajo, and Macula Dog. If you've never seen Jerry live, well, like his records, it's a little different. Tickets are on sale.

Jerry will also play the Bayonet Records Northside showcase at Rough Trade on June 12 with Frankie Cosmos, Warehouse and headliners Beach Fossils. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/3) at noon.

Video and streams below...

Beastie Boys Ad-Rock gives relationship advice to teenage girls watch
Mar 31, 2015 2:19pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Over the course of more than 30 years, Adam Horovitz, aka Ad-Rock, has built up a career that most people can only dream of. From his historic run with the Beastie Boys (three Grammys, a Diamond-certified album) to his ongoing acting career (most recently starring in Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young), the New York native is pretty much a legend in his own right, with a serious wealth of knowledge at his disposal.

This week, Horovitz passed along some of that wisdom as part of Rookie Mags “Ask A Grown Man” series, which features questions submitted by the publication’s teenage readership. Following in the footsteps of past guests Run The Jewels and Radiohead, the MC offered up advice on first kisses (“Go ahead and do it!”), how to properly breakup with someone, and personal insecurities, among other topics. Watch the full video below.

In related news, Ad-Rock confirmed that the Beastie Boys were officially done, but still have a treasure trove of unreleased music “in the vault.”



Marching Church King Of Song Video
Mar 31, 2015 2:18pm | StereoGum
Elias Bender Rønnenfelt is the frontman for Iceage, a Danish punk group that's better-known stateside than his solo project Marching Church. He's been gearing up for the release of a new Marching Church album called This World Is Not Enough, and previously shared "Hungry For Love" and "King Of Song" from the project. The album comes out today, so he's shared the video for "King Of Song" to commemorate its release. A black and white affair, it was directed by Catherine C. Coleman, and it follows Rønnenfelt through a dramatic performance of the song. Watch it below.

33 1/3 series preps book on Super Mario Bros. score for May
Mar 31, 2015 2:15pm | Fact Magazine

In addition to Mario, the music criticism series will also release books on Devos Freedom of Choice and The Dead Kennedys Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables at the same time.

33 1/3 is a running series where one music critic dedicates a book’s worth of words to a single album. The next run of books is due this May and will deliver a first in the series: A book dedicated solely to the score of a video game. It’s not just any videogame either.

Writer and composer Andrew Schartmann will write an entire book dedicated Koji Kondo’s groundbreaking original score to Super Mario Bros. It’s a fascinating challenge and not just because it’s the series’ first stab at a long form analysis of video game music, but because Kondo’s groundbreaking score only amounted to a couple minutes of music.

The books will be available May 21st via Bloomsbury, find more info on 33 1/3’s website. Revisit Kondo’s the musical world of Super Mario Bros. below.

Watch Future Islands Debut The Chase & The Haunted In The UK
Mar 31, 2015 2:06pm | StereoGum
Future Islands are in the UK recording at Abbey Road, and they debuted two of their new songs Sunday at Sheffield Plug. "The Chase" is an uptempo new wave number in the vein of "Seasons (Waiting On You)," while "Haunted" is slightly more laid-back; imagine Future Islands putting their own melancholy spin on Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days," and maybe you're close. Watch fan-made video of both songs below, and read our recent Future Islands cover story while you're at it.
