Madonnas new album leaks before its even been announced
Dec 17, 2014 8:56am | Fact Magazine

Update: Madonna has dismissed the leak as “unfinished demos stolen long ago”.

The singer took to Instagram to tell fans that the tracks were “not ready to be presented to the world.”

She wrote: “Thank you for not listening! Thank you for your loyalty! Thank you for waiting and if you have heard please know they are unfinished demos stolen long ago and not ready to be presented to the world.”

Madonna’s new album has surfaced online in unfinished form before it’s even been officially announced.

The album she’s been working on this year is titled Iconic on the leaked version, and features 13 tracks including the previously confirmed songs ‘Rebel Heart’, ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’, ‘Joan of Arc’ and ‘Make the Devil Pray’, as Digital Spy reports.

Madge hasn’t even announced an official title or release date for the album yet, but it was expected to appear some time in 2015. We already know that she’s been collaborating with a wide range of producers and songwriters, including Diplo, Nicki Minaj and cute-pop whizz SOPHIE and that’s just on one tantalising track. Other collaborators could include Brit producer MNEK and the Midas touch of Vampire Weekend producer Ariel Rechtshaid, or even dance...

Laura Marling Short Movie Video
Dec 17, 2014 8:27am | StereoGum

In 2013, the British folk singer Laura Marling released Once I Was An Eagle, one of those albums that sneaks up on you, where you might not realize how good it is until it’s been in your life for a few months. Early next year, she’ll follow that one with a new album called Short Movie. The album’s title track, which Marling just shared, is a pretty great hard-driving indie-folk song with a confident build to it. The song comes packaged with a pretty Art & Graft-directed animated video about a horse running across the desert. Below, watch the video and check out the album’s tracklist.

Laura Marling announces new album, Short Movie, shares title track listen
Dec 17, 2014 8:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

Laura Marling will release her fifth studio album, Short Movie, on March 23rd, 2015 via Virgin/EMI.

Serving as the follow-up to 2013s Once I Was an Eagle, the 13-track effort was recorded in London with frequent collaborators Matt Ingram and Dan Cox. Additionally, Marling recruited a number of her friends to perform in her backing band, including Noah and the Whales Tom Hobden, cellist Ruth De Turberville, and bassist Nick Pini.

According to a press release, the album is inspired by Marling’s attempts to find a sense of stability, after permanently relocating to Los Angeles last year. She explains, “I realised that I hadnt been in a place for longer than two or three weeks since I was 16. I thought, I wonder what will happen if I try and root myself somewhere [and] look back over the past eight years.”

To accompany todays announcement, Marling has shared the albums title track. Sonically, its the same kind of dazzling pastiche weve come to expect from the UK singer, who deftly blends the earnest melodies of folk with strands of ornate classical and dusty desert rock. Check out the song below via its accompanying animated video. Thats the albums cover art above.

Short Movie Tracklist:
01. Warrior
02. False Hope
03. I Feel Your Love
04. Walk Alone
05. Strange
06. Don’t Let Me Bring You Down
07. Easy

Watch Paul McCartney Joke Around With Jon Stewart On The Daily Show
Dec 17, 2014 8:17am | StereoGum

Paul McCartney was interviewed on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart last night. He was there to talk about his original song “Hope For The Future” that he made for the video game Destiny — which McCartney says he hasn’t played much, though his grandkids have — but they mainly riff off of each other for a few minutes about the ridiculousness of the former Beatle writing a song for a video game and why he’d rather be getting interviewed on Ellen. Watch the full interview below.

Watch Lorde, Disclosure, Alt-J, Skrillex, & More In A Very Austalian Year-End Sketch For Triple J
Dec 17, 2014 8:10am | StereoGum

The Australian radio station Triple J is about to launch its year-end Hottest 100 countdown. And to build up anticipation (or whatever), it put together a comedy sketch that stars as many musicians as possible. It’s pretty obvious that none of these people in were in the same room at the same time, but it’s still fun to watch the avalanche of dumb puns and the constant barrage of cameos: Lorde! Disclosure! Alt-J! Skrillex and Diplo! Ben Folds! First Ait Kit! Reggie Watts! Flume! Rick Astley! So many Australian groups who I don’t recognize! Check out the sketch below.

Charli XCX and Vampire Weekends Rostam perform on Letterman watch
Dec 17, 2014 7:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

Charli XCXs week in New York City isn’t all fun and pizza: The UK pop singer followed up her stint on Saturday Night Live by appearing on last night’s episode of Late Show with David Letterman. Accompanied by Vampire Weekends Rostam Batmanglij on piano, Charli supported this week’s release of Sucker with the bombastic anthem “Need Ur Luv”. Watch the replay below.

If you’re wondering, yes — Letterman did in fact hand Charli a sex toy at the end of the performance. Well, sort of. Earlier in the show, Anna Kendrick and Letterman concluded that one peculiar-looking cat toy may have an ulterior purpose.

Charli XCX continued her Sucker promotional tour with a stop by David Letterman where she played album closer “Need Ur Love.” She was joined by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, who she wrote the track with, and a few backup singers. Charli dances around on top of the piano for most of the performance, wearing lingerie and a pair of glittery wedges. Letterman comes up on the piano with her at the end of the song and gives her a special Christmas gift. Watch below.

Meet Koyote, French club musics best-kept secret
Dec 17, 2014 6:28am | Fact Magazine

FACT TV and Sound Pellegrino presents Meet Koyote, a documentary about one of French club music’s best-kept secret. 

Although he’s far from a household name, key figures in French clubbing such as Teki Latex, DJ Orgasmic and Manare – all featured in Meet Koyote, along with Detroit’s DJ Nasty and others – revere Koyote for his encyclopaedic knowledge of dance music, his musical approach (a healthy combination of wide-eyed naivety and not giving a fuck) and his contribution to the Paris scene as a booker, DJ and producer.

Speaking to FACT, Teki Latex – whose Sound Pellegrino label have just released Koyote’s latest EP, Let Me Tell You What I’ve Got – compares Koyote’s music to Matt Groening using high school bands to play music in The Simpsons, despite it being arranged by professionals. “This EP reminds me of that approach”, he explains, “anti-elitist sounds and instruments serving a very confident release that stretches our personal definitions of House to spy movie scores played by children, characterised with playfulness and radiating the pure joy of creating music.”

Let Me Tell You What I’ve Got is out now on Sound Pellegrino on both vinyl and digital (the vinyl version features a track exclusive to the 12″, ‘Brigitte’. You can stream the EP below, and buy it here...


Future Brown make a fake beauty commercial for new track Vernáculo
Dec 17, 2014 6:28am | Fact Magazine

Warm tones and capitalist surrealism.

Warp’s underground supergroup Future Brown have appropriated the glossy advertising language of cosmetics brands in a video for their new track ‘Vernáculo’, featuring Maluca.

The slick clip was commissioned by Pérez Art Museum Miami, who describe it as “an exercise in capitalist surrealism” you’ll have to head to their website to watch it. It was unveiled Art Basel last week as part of a Future Brown show featuring Fade To Mind singer Kelela.

‘Vernáculo’ is taken from the group’s debut album, which sees the team of Fatima Al Qadiri, J-Cush and Nguzunguzu collaborate with Chicago upstart Tink, bop stars Sicko Mobb and grime vets Riko Dan, Roachee, Prince Rapid and Dirty Danger, among many more. It’s due on February 24. Check out previous single Talkin Bandz, featuring Shawnna and DJ Victoriouz. [via RA]

Buffalo Stance

or Why I didnt go and see Mclusky play at the Buffalo Bar

Last night, I didn't go and see Mclusky play at the Buffalo Bar because I went to my works Christmas drinks instead. Actually, they didn't even clash, I don't even have that as an excuse. Without too much of a problem, I could have been in the pub at one, had a tie round my head by four, photocopied my balls by five, persuaded a pissed up Graham from Accounts to come watch some real music by six, and been in the Buff by eight, or at least in the Highbury spoons until game time Im not made of money. But I didnt.

Instead I drank too much, went home, irritated my wife and woke up in the morning with a crippling 34 year olds hangover and a Facebook feed filled with tales of greatness from the leaky red womb of Highbury Corner. The timeline stories seemed to scream 'How last night at the Buffalo Bar completed me spiritually as a human being'. And this is what makes small venues great. Why all great bands should reform and start doing important things (I think Falco already went over that, to be fair). And why I was facing the wrong direction when it was all going on.

As you may have read, along with London venues like Madame Jojos, The Enterprise, Vibe Bar and pretty much all of Denmark Street, the Buffalo Bar is closing. After 14 y...


DAngelo pushed Black Messiahs release forward from 2015 after Ferguson verdict
Dec 17, 2014 4:52am | Fact Magazine

D’Angelo‘s tour manager has revealed that the r’n'b recluse pushed his album release forward due to the Ferguson protests. 

Speaking to The New York Times, Alan Leeds explains that the album was originally planned for a 2015 release, but after protests in Ferguson and elsewhere over the death of Michael Brown, the people involved in the record wanted to release it as soon as possible. According to Leeds, D’Angelo stated that ”the one way I do speak out is through music. I want to speak out.”

D’Angelo’s co-manager Kevin Liles recalls another conversation, immediately after a US grand jury didn’t convict the police officer who killed Brown. D’Angelo called Liles and said “‘Do you believe this? Do you believe it?’ … And then we just sat there in silence. That is when I knew he wanted to say something.

Elsewhere, the piece reveals that D’Angelo’s label RCA didn’t hear the album until Sunday night, December 14, at an industry listening party the night before its release. The album was finished in late November.
