Kanye Shares New Kanye-isms In Oxford University Lecture
Mar 2, 2015 2:44pm | StereoGum
Kanye West has been on a tear lately as he promotes his recently confirmed new album So Help Me God.

One last jab on the rapper following his public apology last week.

If you thought that Kanye West apologizing to Beck on Twitter was the end of the Grammy’s controversy, a quick visit to www.loser.com will change that. Someone, presumably a Beck fan, has purchased the domain name and caused it to redirect to West’s Wikipedia page. Kanye has yet to respond to the joke.

In other news, West revealed his newest single ‘All Day’. Listen to it here.

Depeche Modes Martin Gore announces solo LP, shares Europa Hymn listen
Mar 2, 2015 2:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Martin Gore, co-founder of Depeche Mode, has announced a new solo album under the abbreviated moniker MG. The self-titled effort features 16 instrumental tracks and is due April 28th via Mute Records.

Gore began recording the album in his Santa Barbara, California home following Depeche Mode’s 2013 tour. “I wanted to keep the music very electronic, very filmic, and give it an almost sci-fi like quality,” said Gore in a press release. “Music is a necessity for me. I go into the studio at least five days a week, every week, so once I had the idea and the template, the process was quick and fun.”

The MG handle originated for 2012’s VCMG project with former Mode member Vince Clarke. “As the album is very electronic and has no vocals,” Gore explained, “I felt it deserved another persona so decided to carry on the MG concept from the VCMG album.”

Below, listen to the album track “Europa Hymn”, and find the full MG tracklist.


MG Tracklist:
01. Pinking
02. Swanning
03. Exalt
04. Elk
05. Brink
06. Europa Hymn
07. Creeper
08. Spiral
09. Stealth
10. Hum
11. Islet
12. Crowly
13. Trysting
14. Southerly
15. Featherlight
16. Blade



Wu-Tang Clan detail likely final album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, secure 88-year copyright
Mar 2, 2015 2:28pm | Fact Magazine

Coming soon to a digital auction house near you.

The Wu-Tang Clan have revealed the auction page for Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, their one-of-a-kind album-cum-art piece. The page on Paddle8 includes music, artwork, essays by RZA, Chris Norris and a conversation betwen RZA and Cilvaringz, and more.

“When I think of who will come to own Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, I want them to recognize the historical value of what they’re collecting,” says RZA. “Im not one for hoping as a rule, but I really hope its guardian is the kind of person who finds appreciation and value in every artistic expression. Because this work was made to be appreciated.”

To prevent the commercial proliferation of the album after the sale, RZA and company have secured an 88 year copyright, landing at that particular length of time through a typically RZAian bit of numerology and mathematical symbolism.

RZA also admits that “a scenario where a philanthropist buys the album and releases it for free” is a “possibility,” noting that it would be unlikely due to the large investment required to secure the album. In addition, the team has decided to let the buyer decide how to publicly exhibit the album, if they so wish.

And confirming what many have speculated, considering the mammoth undertaking and the tepid response to last year’s A Better To...

Mumford & Sons announce new album & traveling festival tour (NJ w/ Flaming Lips, Alabama Shakes, Jenny Lewis, more)
Mar 2, 2015 2:27pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Mumford & Sons' traveling festival Gentlemen of the Road returns this year, with a stopover not far from NYC in Seaside Heights, NJ on June 5 & 6 with The Flaming Lips, Alabama Shakes, The Vaccines, The Maccabees, Dawes, the Very Best, Jenny Lewis, Little May, JEFF the Brotherhood, Blake Mills and more TBA. Tickets go on sale Friday (3/6) at 10 AM. There's other stopovers in Iowa, Scotland, Washington, Colorado, and more TBA. All current lineups below.

The Mumfords have also announced that their third album, Wilder Mind, is due out May 4 via Glassnote. A new article about the album on Rolling Stone says, "Mumford & Sons have mostly removed their signature elements - banjo, acoustic strumming, stomping kick drum - and replaced them with U2-sized guitars, synths, spacey mellotrons and even some drum machines." The album was produced by Arctic Monkeys' go-to guy and Simian Mobile Disco member James Ford, and they also recorded part of it in The National's Aaron Dessner's studio in Ditmas Park (inspiring the song "Ditmas"). Artwork, tracklist, and teaser video below.

Mumford & Sons also have other non-GOTR festival dates, including Bonnaroo.

Action Bronson Baby Blue (Feat. Chance The Rapper) (Prod. Mark Ronson)
Mar 2, 2015 2:24pm | StereoGum
Action Bronson’s latest Mr. Wonderful single “Baby Blue” reunites him with Chance The Rapper, who contributes one of his signature raspy, sing-song hooks (co-written by Zane Lowe!) and raps the final verse. Bronsolino delivers plenty of quotables as usual, and Mark Ronson’s beat is a bright and radio-friendly callback to his work with Amy Winehouse […]



GOASTT @ Babys All Right: February 28, 2015
Mar 2, 2015 2:15pm | CMJ


Local indie moodies, Invisible Familiars, led by Jared Samuel, warmed up the packed Brooklyn club, though banjo-led, nerd-grass locals, Tall Tall Trees, did an even warmer job and even got some crowd members screaming along. Summer Moon is the new band project of the Strokes’ bass player, Nikolai Fraiture. He plays bass here too, but also lead sings in front of the Like’s drummer Tennessee Thomas, Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone on keyboard and guitarist Lewis Lazar. They’re sort of silky post-punk was most propulsively powered by Ms. Thomas.

Finally, Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger, less gangly-known as GOASTT, sauntered onstage. Led by Sean Lennon Ono and his wife, musician/model Charlotte Kemp Muhl, the band has really worked hard to lay a trail of dues paying over the last year or so, going from big festival slots they can probably procure in their sleep to off-the-cuff packed club shows. And while their morphy folk-a-delia isn’t world-beating, they’ve become a more sure-footed band and spread fine vibes all through their Saturday night set. And the way it’s been outside, noone seemed to mind the hot, sweaty box that Baby’s All Right became. Good time!

Action Bronson and Chance the Rapper team on Baby Blue listen
Mar 2, 2015 2:02pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Later this month, Action Bronson will drop his highly-anticipated major-label debut, Mr. Wonderful, through Vice/Atlantic Records. Already we’ve heard previews in “Easy Rider”, “Actin Crazy”, and “A Light in the Addict”. Now, the New York rapper’s let loose “Baby Blue”, his collaborative track with Chance the Rapper, produced by Mark Ronson.

Premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 program, it’s a soulful mid-tempo jam that sees Bam Bam lamenting a relationship gone awry. “Why you always all on my back, why you gotta do me like that?” he says during the chorus, offering up a rarely seen vulnerable side to the otherwise braggadocious MC/foodie.

Meanwhile, Chance does his part towards the song’s end, delivering matter-of-fact lines perfect for a breakup letter that’s both silly and spiteful: “I hope you get a paper cut from a razor”; “I hope every soda you drink is already shaken up”; “I hope there’s always snow on your driveway.” Listen in below.

Mr. Wonderful arrives on March 24th and features additional production from The Alchemist, Fuse, and 88 Keys. Last week, Action premiered the video for “Actin’ Crazy” here.

Mr. Wonderful Tracklist:
01. Brand New Car
02. When I Rise (feat. Big Body Bes)
03. ...
