Watch Drake Join PartyNextDoor At SOBs, Do The Shmoney Dance At His Dave & Busters Birthday Party
Oct 24, 2014 1:38pm | StereoGum
Drake turns 28 today, so last night, after making a surprise guest appearance with his OVO Sound artist PartyNextDoor at legendary New York rap venue SOB’s, he headed to Dave & Buster’s in Times Square for his birthday party. As Fader points out, there he did Bobby Shmurda’s trademark Shmoney Dance while wearing a very Drake-ish sweater in the company of ILoveMakonnen, Rita Ora, and Mack Wilds. Watch video of Drake joining PartyNextDoor on “Recognize” (he shows up about three minutes in), then check out various Vines and Instagrams from his birthday party.

Pink Floyd release new teaser for The Endless River, the bands first album in 20 years
Oct 24, 2014 1:21pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Pink Floyd have share a third audio teaser of their new album, The Endless River. Whereas the first two clips previewed a guitar solo from David Gilmour and insights into Richard Wright’s contributions, today’s clip features snippets of several unreleased songs. Between the snippets, Gilmour and Nick Mason discuss the album’s recording process, including why they waited so long and how they went about adapting the original recordings from back in 1994. “We set up, just like the old days, so the three of us could play together,” Gilmour said of the 20-year-old sessions. “Just so we could play along together, just to see how it came out like. Out of that, this album grew.”
Due out November 10th, The Endless River marks the bands first new release in 20 years. The album was recorded by Gilmour and Mason in November 2013 alongside Roxy Music guitarist and producer Phil Manzanera. The album utilizes unreleased lyrics and music written by multi-instrumentalist Richard Wright prior to his death in 2008. Other contributors include theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and UK-based electronic string quartet Escala.
For a more substantial taste of the album, check out lead single “Louder Than Words”.
Listen to all three album teasers below.

Tweens / PAWS / Lee Bains III @ Arlene's Grocery
While Amanda was at Pianos on Wednesday (10/22), fellow BV photographer Chris La Putt was at nearby Arlene's Grocery for the Never Better CMJ day party where there was a rockin' bill of grungy Scottish trio PAWS, southern sleazy riffmongers Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires, poppy/punky Tweens, and Manchester, UK's attitude-heavy PINS. Then, as a palate cleanser, he swung by Rockwood Music Hall to catch soulful Brooklyn duo She Keeps Bees.
Pictures from those sets are in this post, with more below...

CMJ Releases Statement On Ebola
Oct 24, 2014 12:46pm | StereoGum
Yesterday, we learned the troubling news that Dr. Craig Spencer, the first New York resident to test positive for Ebola, had been out on Wednesday night at the Gutter, a Williamsburg bowling alley that had been hosting unofficial CMJ events. The coming shows at the Gutter were all canceled, with good reason. But the people behind CMJ have now issued a short statement saying that the festival would go on as planned. As Billboard reports, CMJ officials wrote this: “We have been diligently following the news on Ebola and will continue to be proactive of the situation and circumstances. At this time CMJ will continue on as scheduled and if anything should change we will act accordingly.”
Watch David Gilmour & Nick Mason Preview New Pink Floyd In Endless River Teaser
Oct 24, 2014 12:46pm | StereoGum
So far Pink Floyd have shared one song from farewell album The Endless River, “Louder Than Words.” The latest teaser video with David Gilmour and Nick Mason doesn’t reveal an entire track, but there are snippets of several unreleased songs. They also talk about the making of the album and how they didn’t want to alter the original 20-year-old sessions at first but eventually gave into their desire to keep creating. Check it out.
Led Zeppelin Rock And Roll Video
Oct 24, 2014 12:39pm | StereoGum
I love Led Zeppelin, but I’d say there’s a good third of their catalog that I can’t hear anymore. I don’t mean I don’t want to listen to it; I mean I cannot hear it — I’ve heard it so much that it’s just white noise, like the sounds of midtown traffic outside Stereogum’s offices. And for me, no song has been worn thinner than “Rock And Roll,” from “Led Zep IV,” which might as well be “Happy Birthday” by this point. So I love hearing alternate versions of these tracks, because if even one aspect of the mix is different, it can change my entire listening experience. Next Monday, Zep will release re-mastered, expanded versions of both “IV” and Houses Of The Holy, and those reissues will include a bunch of alternate takes, including this one, of “Rock And Roll.” Frankly, this take hews too close to the album version to actually reinvigorate the song for me, but according to Pagey, it offers a “different perspective.” Read his explanation and watch the lyric video for the track below.
Morrissey Contends With Shockingly Abysmal Italian Venues, Shops World Peace Re-Release
Oct 24, 2014 12:29pm | StereoGum
Morrissey’s latest True To You monologue includes a takedown of the venues he played on tour in Rome and Milan (“both abysmal — Milan quite shockingly abysmal”), but it’s more positive than your average Moz bitch-sesh. He also expresses an “over-emotional thanks” for those who attended his shows in Italy, Spain, and Portugal: “It has been fantastic for us, and it brings a new sense of accomplishment for which, again and again, we thank you.” He has kind words for the press in Spain and Italy and seems very excited that somebody finally invited him on TV to promote World Peace Is None Of Your Business.
CMJ: Twin Peaks, Happyness, Nai Harvest @ Rough Trade 10/23/14
Oct 24, 2014 12:11pm | StereoGum
Yesterday was a disgusting day in New York, and this is coming from someone whose favorite season is winter: wet coldness due to the obnoxiously persistent rain, and a particularly bone-cutting kind of wind (especially if you were, like me, near the East River). Given that, spending the day indoors, at an afternoon showcase at Rough Trade’s Williamsburg outpost, was a solid refuge for a Thursday.

Maxwell's open with new owners, hosting live music again
Oct 24, 2014 12:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Maxwell's in 2013 (more by Matt Schiels)
Hoboken venue Maxwell's closed as a music club in 2013 only to be sold and re-opened as a bar/restaurant earlier this year. When we last posted, we mentioned the new owners aren't ruling out live music, and now NJ.com reports that there will in fact be live music. It's a little different than the stuff Maxwell's used to have though:
"We definitely want to have music back in Hoboken," said [new co-owner Pete] Carr. "We're trying to engage the local community and offer a stage for the town's local indie bands to play." And with an initial spate of concerts that includes veteran NJ cover band the Nerds next Thursday, an Eric Clapton tribute band on Nov. 7, and DJ nights on Halloween weekend, Carr and [Evan] Dean seem enthusiastic about making original live music a staple at the venue again.
Klaxons Announce Final Tour
Oct 24, 2014 11:59am | StereoGum
Klaxons have been kicking around the music world since 2005, at the height of something called New Rave, when every young band in Britain seemed to be playing spunky, angular, dance-infused indie rock. Along with Bloc Party and the Arctic Monkeys, Klaxons were one of the best of them. They’ve accumulated a strong discography over the years, but their moment has come and gone, and they seem to realize it: Today on Facebook and Twitter the band announced that their upcoming tour dates will be their last.
