You can probably guess what kind of music NYC's Acid Dad make from their name, and if you guessed psychedelic garage rock you'd be right. It's not too druggy or scuzzy though -- Acid Dad pack their songs with hooks and are clearly here to have a good time. Their debut EP Let's Plan A Robbery comes out February 26 digitally and on cassette via Knife Tapes, and we've got the premiere of its track "Don't Get Taken." Check it out, along with the previously-released "Fool's Gold," below. You can pre-order the cassette now.
Acid Dad have tour dates announced from this month through late April. Strangely enough, those don't include any NYC shows, but they play here all the time (Oh My Rockness named them one of the hardest working local bands of 2015). Surely they'll schedule another hometown show soon.

Paul McCartney is composing audio emojis, because music is dead
Feb 10, 2016 9:38am | Cosequence Of Sound
Sir Paul McCartney, of The Beatles, Wings, and Sirvana fame, has contributed a number of compositions to the world’s musical lexicon, from “Hey Jude” to “Blackbird” to “Spies Like Us”. However, his latest artistic endeavor could prove to be his lasting legacy.
In collaboration with Skype, McCartney has composed the first-ever “audio emojis”. I’ll let that sink in for a second. Like I said, his lasting legacy.
McCartney recorded the 10 audio emojis over the course of a week, “using a variety of instruments including guitars, keyboards, drums, xylophone and his voice.” Each emoji is love-themed for Valentine’s Day.
In a statement, McCartney commented on project: It turned out to be a great laugh at the same time as challenging because you suddenly realise youve got to compress a musical interpretation of an expression into less than five seconds. It was like doing a huge crossword puzzle and coming up with all these solutions. And at the same time it was musical so it was great practise for me in the studio.
McCartney’s audio emojis are now available on Skype, and you can finding a making-of video below. Personally, I’m going to hold out for some Trent Reznor-composed emojis.

Feb 10, 2016 9:22am | Fact Magazine
A new track from the Boston up-and-comer.
Black EL has a bunch in store for 2016 he’s already released the spacey Store Hours and continues with another Durkin-produced cut ‘Blueprint’ (which, as EL notes in the song, has nothing to do with the classic Jay Z album).
About the track, EL says: “I wrote Blueprint when I was at a point where my friends and I were really starting to move [and] grow as individuals in our respective crafts [and] lives. We all were figuring out who we were, what our purpose was, and how we can help each other get to our respective destinations. Life is only as enjoyable as the people you surround yourself with and the plans you make for tomorrow. Just remember to reflect, celebrate and adapt.”
Black EL is slated to drop a project called Anywhere But Here later this year. Check out ‘Blueprint’ below.

Danny Brown and Sahtyre are a force to be reckoned with on Expertise
Feb 10, 2016 9:21am | Fact Magazine
It’s a menacing meeting of flows.
Danny Brown raps back-to-back with LA’s Sahtyre on a new track. ‘Expertise’ sees the pair spit hard-boiled bars about doing bumps in ubers, smoking blunts and wearing designer jeans, against baroque-style production from Stewart Villain.
In other Danny Brown news, he popped into the Yams Day Concert at NYC’s Terminal 5 last month and hinted on Twitter that a new album is finally in the works (although no details have been confirmed as yet).

Feb 10, 2016 9:20am | Cosequence Of Sound
Deadpool doesn’t crash into theaters for another 48 hours, but will the film tracking to open somewhere between $65 and $70 million, 20th Century Fox has already commissioned a sequel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have begun writing a follow-up to the R-rated superhero flick. There’s no doubt that Ryan Reynolds will return as the merc with a mouth, and insiders say Fox also plans to bring back the entire creative team, including director Tim Miller.
For his part, Reynolds recently said he’d put another film in the X-Men universe ahead of a Deadpool sequel. “In the future, if were doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, were really going to explore the X-Men a lot,” he told FILMSTARTS. “Well see. And maybe X-Force X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in.”
In the comics, X-Force is like the Black Ops versions of the X-Men. Production on a live-action version began back in 2013 with Kick-Ass 2 helmer Jeff Wadlow hired to direct and write the film. His script received praise from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, but the film was put on hold when X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool were greenlit. The film’s team was said to have featured Cable (son of Cyclops and a clon...

Band 2 Band: Which member of Wet had a Dilbert themed Bar Mitzvah?
Feb 10, 2016 9:09am | Chart Attack
Our video series Band 2 Band helps artists learn more about each other in the most natural way we could think of: by pulling questions out of a jar and asking them to each other.
Brooklyn-based group Wet make silky R&B-tinged pop that levitates above the coastal shoreline at sunset. It's the musical equivalent of a warm hug. We hung out with the band's three members, Kelly Zutrau (who had bronchitis at the time), Joe Valle and Marty Sulkow and got to know them just as they were getting to know themselves. That's the power of Band 2 Band.
Each subsequent question provided a depth of new information even some band members hadn't known before, such as Marty's oddly themed Bar Mitzvah. They also share their music/food pairings, how they act in emergency scenarios, and how to combat negativity on the internet.
Wet's debut album Don't You is available now on Columbia Records. See them tonight (February 10th) in Vancouver at Biltmore Cabaret.

ICYMI: Donald Trump won the New Hampshire primary last night. I tried to make a snide joke about this, but it's getting harder and harder to come up with mean things to say about the man because he truly is terrifying. Fortunately, Funny Or Die released a mockumentary based on Trump's memoir/business advice book The … More »
