Watch the year in pop distilled into one impressive video
Dec 4, 2013 3:03pm | Fact Magazine
The appropriately-named DJ Earworm returns with his annual United State Of Pop mix-video.
Subtitled “Living The Fantasy,” the video tosses the year’s top 25 Billboard singles into a blender and spits out a surprisingly coherent pop mash-up, in both audio and video.
Daft Punk, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, and Lady Gaga are joined by less FACT-friendly pop acts (Imagine Dragons, Macklemore) in the five-and-a-half-minute clip. If pop music isn’t your bag, use this opportunity to comment on how interchangeable its biggest stars and songs are, catch up on what teenagers were listening to this year, or marvel at an impressive bit of mashcraft.
Watch Jack White perform Were Going to Be Friends at only concert appearance of 2013

Maybe the most meta concert film of all-time, Another Day, Another Time will chronicle the concert celebrating the release of the Coen brothers’ latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis. That’s right, it’s a film about a concert inspired by a film.
The concert, which took place in September at New York Citys Town Hall, was headlined by Jack White. In fact, aside from his appearance at the Grammys, it marked White’s only live performance of the entire year. Below, you can watch footage of him performing The White Stripes’ fan favorite “Were Going to Be Friends” (via Vulture).
Another Day, Another Time premieres December 13th on Showtime, while Inside Llewyn Davis hits theaters on December 20th
The Cult kicking off more 'Electric 13' dates, including 2 NYC-area shows this week (win tix!)
Dec 4, 2013 2:49pm | Brooklyn Vegan
The Cult have been celebrating their 1987 LP, Electric, the album that marked their change from post-punks to hard rockers, this year with a double album reissue, Electric Peace, and they've also been playing it in full on tour. Another North American leg of that tour begins this week with two stops in the NYC-area, including Wellmont Theatre on Thursday (12/5) in Montclair, NJ and Paramount Theatre on Friday (12/6) in Huntington, NY. Tickets for both of those shows are available, and we're also giving away a pair to the Wellmont date. Contest details and all tour dates below.
In a Spanish interview from earlier this year, the band also revealed plans to release a new album in 2014, which would be the followup to 2012's Choice of Weapon.
Check out a full set video of the band's Electric 13 Live tour stop in San Diego from this past July, along with the list of upcoming dates and contest details, below...

Homosexual Relationship Edited Out Of Morrisseys Autobiography In The U.S.
Dec 4, 2013 2:48pm | StereoGum
Morrissey’s much-discussed memoir Autobiography came out in Europe first, but now there’s an American edition out. And according to people who have compared the two, the American version is markedly different from the European version, especially in one big way. The book discusses the two-year relationship that Morrissey had with photographer Jake Owen Walters in the ’90s, but, as SPIN reports, the American edition of the book downplays that relationship. Plenty of details have been altered: A photograph of Walters as a boy is gone, Walters’s name has been edited out of one narrative, and various other changes have been made. It’s not currently known whether the changes came from Morrissey himself or from the book’s U.S. publisher G.P. Putnam’s Sons.
Listen: Doldrums, Dive Deep Pt. 1
Dec 4, 2013 2:47pm | Chart Attack
Step 1: Connect your video camera to your VCR. Step 2: Set your TV to display what your camera captures. Step 3: Point the camera lens towards your TV. Stare at that image long enough, and for a few moments you're trapped in some kind of precipitous techno-hypnosis, barely balancing between soothing and insidious.
Doldrums' Dive Deep Pt. 1 is the soundtrack to that weird digital proto-Matrix, its soothing electronics projected in glimmering waves as the percussion trundles along like a shopping cart filled with damp, rusty pans. This dialogue continues for as long as Airick Woodhead moderates it with his equally emotionally ambidextrous vocals, but once these drop out in the song's closing third, a more cynical tone resembling Boards of Canada's Tomorrow's Harvest takes hold. But by that point, you probably be too far gone to snap out of it.

Watch Jack Whites Were Going To Be Friends From Inside Llewyn Davis Concert Film
Dec 4, 2013 2:34pm | StereoGum
Inside Llewyn Davis, the Coen brothers’ upcoming film set in the early-’60s Greenwich Village folk scene, will be accompanied by a star-studded concert special called Another Day, Another Time on Showtime next week. The concert was filmed at Town Hall in Manhattan back in September, and we already saw fan-made video of Elvis Costello’s performance. Now comes our first peek at the professional footage in the form of Jack White’s folked-up rendition of the White Stripes’ twee ballad “We’re Going To Be Friends.” Hear the tune infused with twangy harmonies and plucky fingerpicking below.
Morrisseys gay relationship reportedly edited out of US copies of Autobiography
Dec 4, 2013 2:30pm | Fact Magazine
Autobiography" width="685" height="457" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-193977" />
The outspoken singer might have a new source of ire.
Initially released in the U.K. in October, Morrissey‘s Autobiography was finally released in the U.S. However, there are reports that the tell-all doesn’t quite tell-all.
In the U.S. edition, Morrissey’s romantic relationship with Jake Walters (For the first time in my life the eternal I becomes we, as, finally, I can get on with someone”) is missing or edited down. A photo Walters as a boy is no longer included, and his name has been cut out of a story detailing a night out with Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders fame.
Along with the revelations of Autobiography, Morrissey cleared up rumors about his sexuality, albeit in true Moz fashion: “Unfortunately, I am not homosexual. In technical fact, I am humasexual. I am attracted to humans. But, of course not many.”

Cloud Nothings at Terminal 5 in 2012 (more by Luis
Around this time last year, Cloud Nothings mentioned they were planning a "noisier" album for 2013, and though we heard some new songs at their shows, the album didn't come out this year, but it's being promised for 2014. They haven't announced an exact release date or title yet, but they just posted a 43-second album teaser that features a number of Cloud Nothings-sounding riffs and is enough to get us excited for the new record.
Check out the video below...

Drake put out one of our favorite albums of the year a while back, and since then has been on tour with Miguel and Future. It’s a trifecta of amazing musicians, so we sent photographer Colin McLaughlin over to the Moda Center in Portland to capture the show.

Lovefoxxx of CSS lends her face for a turn of the 24th century propaganda video Flowers, the latest freak fest from bEEdEEgEE's just released album SUM/ONE. But her porcelain face and raver eyes are only the first layer: beneath that there's what could be a real estate walk-through video for a villa located in the heart of level 1 of N64's Perfect Dark, as well as a bouquet of rotating flowers and unfurling asteroids. Surrender! Surrender!

Hear all of 2013s hit singles condensed into five-minute mashup
Dec 4, 2013 2:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound
San Francisco producer Jordan Roseman, a.k.a. DJ Earworm, has unveiled his annual “United State of Pop” mash-up mix. Splicing together 25 of Billboard‘s top hits of 2013, it’s a monster collection that’s somehow unbelievably compressed into a nifty five-and-a-half minutes.
There’s Daft Punk’s huge summer hit, “Get Lucky”, Lorde’s record-breaking smash “Royals”, Justin Timberlake’s comeback single “Suit & Tie”, Miley Cyrus twerk-anthem “We Can’t Stop”, and Eminem’s massive Rihanna collaboration “The Monster”, among others. So, if you’ve been living under a rock the past 12 months and want a quick run-down on this year’s pop music, or, if you simply enjoy hearing all your favorites in one fell swoop, this is for you. Listen in below, followed by the full tracklist.

Eight Days of Indie Chanukah: Day 8: The Ramones, NOFX, punk rock and Judaism
Dec 4, 2013 2:07pm | Chart Attack
Chanukah is early this year, so we thought itd be a good chance to go against the tinsel-covered grain and give you some latke-and-candle-friendly anthems. Eight crazy nights of them, to be exact. Today, we end the holiday with a discussion of the intersection between punk rock and Judaism.
Lets finish this thing off right. Lets talk punk.
You couldnt count the number of Jewish first wave New York punk rockers on one menorah (Lou Reed, Joey and Tommy Ramone, Jonathan Richman, Lenny Kaye, Richard Hell, Suicides Martin Rev, CBGB;s Hilly Kristal, Blondies Chris Stein, to start), but you also couldnt find a genre more fraught with its originators ethic background: in retrospect, the morbid fascination with the swastika makes CBGB nostalgia a challenge. But in recent years a few people have tried to make a case for a secret Jewish history of punk rock.
Steven Lee Beebers The Heebie-Jeebies at CBGBs, for instance, argues that punk reflects the Jewish history of oppression and a revolt against the traditional bookish, well-mannered nice Jewish boy stereotype. The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, meanwhile, gathered Tommy Ramone, Stein, Kaye and Handsome Dick Manitoba in 2009 to discuss Judaisms relationship to punk. They remained divided.
If youre looking for a nice punk rock Chanukah listen, however, (and thats what were here for, isn't it?), Fat Mike should be able to help. The NOFX leader must have been as sick o...
