The Rosebuds Esse Quam Videri
Jul 29, 2014 9:56am | StereoGum

On Sand + Silence, the forthcoming sixth album from the North Carolina indie duo the Rosebuds, the band teamed up with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, who co-produced the album and also added guitars and synths. I’m pretty sure you can also hear Vernon’s voice deep in the mix on “Esse Quam Videri,” the latest song we’ve heard from the album. (It follows “In My Teeth” and “Blue Eyes.”) “Esse Qua Videri” is grand, towering jangle-pop, done with the sort of production sheen that you’d hear on, say, a mid-’80s Don Henley record. Listen to it below.

Watch The 8-Bit Grunge Medley You Didnt Know You Wanted
Jul 29, 2014 9:56am | StereoGum

What if all the angst and aggression of grunge were filtered through the sound chips of the very same video-game systems those artists grew up on? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves many, many times, but finally someone has done something about it. The Youtube channel Filthy Frackers has crafted an animated medley of grunge’s greatest hits, reworked so they could fit nicely on an NES and paired with some fun visuals (that’s 8-bit Kurt Cobain in the picture above singing “In Bloom”). It’s not hitting the masterpiece chiptune levels of something like Ducktales or Megaman 2, but it’s definitely fun to pretend this is what Rock Band would have sounded like had it come out in 1993. Check it out.

Papercuts touring, playing two NYC shows (dates, streams)
Jul 29, 2014 9:54am | Brooklyn Vegan

Papercuts released their fifth album, Life Among the Savages, back in May. If you dig rainy day baroque pop, Papercuts (the moniker of San Francisco's Jason Quever) do it very well and the new record's quite good. You can stream the whole thing via Rdio.

Quever will be bringing Papercuts eastward for a few dates in September, including two in NYC: September 5 at Baby's All Right with Olson, Rydholm and Forester (of Ladybug Transistor) and Michael Nau playing too; and September 6 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets to Baby's All Right are on sale now; tickets to Mercury Lounge go on sale Friday (8/1) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (7/30) at noon.

All dates are listed, along with the video for Life Among the Savages's title track, below...

Missy Elliotts comeback album is almost here, says Timbaland: We got the bullet in the gun
Jul 29, 2014 9:52am | Fact Magazine

Timbo promises “something you ain’t never heard Missy do”, and reveals he’s never seen her lay down a track.

Missy Elliott’s first album in nine years could be on the way sooner rather than later, according to her long-term collaborator and pal Timbaland.

“It’s coming,” the producer told Rolling Stone. “It’s on her. She got the first single, it’s just a matter of when she wants to do it. We got the hollow-tip bullet in the gun. We have the game-changer right there.”

Asked about the sound of the album, which would be her first full-length since 2005′s The Cookbook, Timbaland was pretty vague: “It’s something you ain’t never heard Missy do. It sounds today, but the future.” Which, considering how future Missy was sounding back in her millennial heyday, is almost a step back for the rap icon.

Timbaland also revealed that, despite their close working relationship, he’s never seen her record: “I do it, she be like, ‘OK, I got it,’ and I leave the room. She kicks us out. That’s how she do it: She does everything herself.”

Back in his own studio meanwhile, he’s at work on his new solo album, Opera Noir, which he reckons his very own Purple Rain. “I have no features on it,” he said. “It’s all abo...


Listen: Sufjan Stevens covers Arthur Russells A Little Lost
Jul 29, 2014 9:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

As previously reported, the AIDS charity Red Hot Organization is paying tribute to singer-songwriter Arthur Russell with a star-studded charity compilation. Russell died from complications of the disease in 1992.

The 26-track Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell features contributions from Robyn, Hot Chip, Phosphorescent, Devendra Banhart, and Sufjan Stevens, who has covered Russell’s 1994 single “A Little Lost”. The rendition may be a bit more abstract musically, with harsh drums peddling over lithe keys and strings, Stevens maintains the songs core sensibilites of heartache and vulnerability.

In an interview with Pitchfork, Stevens discussed why he chose the Another Thought standout:

I like “A Little Lost” because its all about kissing. I love kissing. If I could kiss all day, I would. I cant stop thinking about kissing. I like kissing more than sex because theres no end to it. You can kiss forever. You can kiss yourself into oblivion. You can kiss all over the body. You can kiss yourself to sleep. And when you wake up, you cant stop thinking about kissing. Dammit, I cant get anything done because Im so busy thinking about kissing. Kissing is madness! But its absolute paradise, if you can find a good kisser.

Arthurs music is all over the place, but most of it seems to be about embracing darkness (loneliness) and ambiguity (confusion) with the bigges...


Watch: BANKS Beggin For Thread Video
Jul 29, 2014 9:45am | CMJ


Last week BANKS shared Beggin For Thread, a raspy, tough track—different than most of what we’ve heard so far from her upcoming debut, Goddess. The video for the song dropped today, and it’s a simple black and white affair with flashes of strained muscles, bursts of fog and BANKS hard-eyeing the camera. It’s not too different than her video for Brain, but it’s worth a watch for the song alone. Check it out below.

The post Watch: BANKS – “Beggin For Thread” Video appeared first on CMJ.


Sufjan Stevens A Little Lost (Arthur Russell Cover)
Jul 29, 2014 9:42am | StereoGum

Six months ago we heard about a pending Sufjan Stevens contribution to Red Hot’s long-gestating Arthur Russell tribute comp, which also includes covers by Robyn, Hot Chip, Blood Orange, Phosphorescent, Jose Gonzalez, and many more. The comp has been renamed Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell, and Sufjan’s take on Russell’s “A Little Lost” has emerged online. Whereas the original was a woozy, intimate chamber-pop love song, this version is a blown-out affair that pays homage to Russell but sounds distinctly Sufjan. The arrangement brilliantly bridges Stevens’ early orchestral twee-folk and latter-day electronic pop experiments; on first listen, it’s the best thing he’s done in years. Here’s what Sufjan had to say about it:

TV on the Radio announce new album, Seeds
Jul 29, 2014 9:35am | Cosequence Of Sound

TV on the Radio have announced the long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s Nine Types of Light. Entitled Seeds, the band’s fifth album to date will arrive this fall through Harvest Records.

In an accompanying statement, frontman Tunde Adebimpe said: “We’ve been through a lot of stuff in the past few years that could have stopped the band cold, but I’m glad we got it together and took stock of the unique connection we have between each other because the record is, 1000%, without a doubt, the best thing we’ve ever done.”

Below, watch a teaser video for the album, along with fan-shot footage of the band performing a new song at BottleRock Music Festival earlier this year.

Today’s announcement marks a surprising change in stance for TVOTR, who previously said they were no longer interested in releasing full-length albums. In the months since that proclamation, they’ve released a pair of standalone singles: “Mercy” and “Million Miles”.

Seeds" width="685" height="385" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-224077" />

The Brooklyn band announce their first album since 2011′s Nine Types of Light.

TV on the Radio re-emerged last year with ‘Million Miles’ and ‘Mercy’, satisfying singer Tunde Adebimpe claims that “smaller things” would precede the band’s fifth album.

The band has shared the name of that album, Seeds, which will be released by Harvest Records this fall; the band previously split with long-time label Interscope.

No details or release date yet, but watch a brief teaser for the album below.


Newcomers Canine Teeth and Dominic Robinson team for smoky R&B ballad Thunderstorms
Jul 29, 2014 9:31am | Fact Magazine

A new producer from Washington, DC inaugurates the city’s newest imprint.

Canine Teeth is the alias of electronic producer Erik Anderson. Next week, he’ll release his debut EP, Leviathan, on new label DRKrts. The woozy, haunting four-track EP mines similar, post-Weeknd R&B territory as Shlohmo and Jeremih’s just-released No More, pairing Anderson with vocalists Dominic Robinson, Miryam Gabrielle, and Brandon Moses of DC band Laughing Man.

Lead single ‘Thunderstorms’ is the EP’s strongest song, at times reminiscent of Usher’s massive ‘Climax’. DRKrts’ Miguel Lacsamana describes the song’s origin via email. “On a particularly grueling week in July, Erik was discouraged by not having the right vocalists for the project, so I invited Erik to come in early for my session with newly transplanted vocalist, Dominic Robinson.”

“The chance meeting of Erik at his lowest point and Dominic celebrating one year sober seemed almost unreal. In that moment of providence, Canine Teeth had found his voice.” Stream ‘Thunderstorms’ below; the EP will be available on iTunes and Amazon on August 5.


Listen: Simian Mobile Discos new song Dervish
Jul 29, 2014 9:30am | Cosequence Of Sound

U.K. electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco have unveiled “Dervish”, the latest track from their fourth studio album, Whorl, due out on September 9th via ANTI- Records.

As the pair recently told Rolling Stone, the especially quirky tune, marked by the oddish warmth of vintage synth tones, dub-esque drums, and glitchy effects, is “probably one of the more overtly techno tracks on the record. Its the most dance-floor orientated, especially compared to some of the more ambient tracks on there.”

Listen in below:

For more sounds, check out the futuristic lead single, “Tangents”.

Whorl Tracklist:
01. Redshift
02. Dandelion Spheres
03. Sun Dogs
04. Hypnick Jerk
05. Dervish
06. Z Sphere
07. Nazard
08. Calyz
09. Jam Side Up

TV On The Radio Announce New Album Seeds
Jul 29, 2014 9:22am | StereoGum

TV On The Radio have been dropping new songs over the last half year or so — some studio recordings, some in the live setting — so it’s not a huge surprise that they’ve got a new album on the way. Not a surprise, but still great, great news. As the band announced in a short YouTube trailer today, the new album will be called Seeds and it’ll be out via Harvest Records this fall. Beyond that, there’s not many details to speak of, but you can watch the Seeds album trailer below.

Led Zeppelin announce deluxe reissues of IV and Houses of the Holy
Jul 29, 2014 9:21am | Cosequence Of Sound

Led Zeppelin have announced the next two releases as part of its massive archival campaign. After releasing deluxe reissues of their first three studio albums back in June, the legendary outfit will give similar treatment to Led Zeppelin IV and Houses Of The Holy on October 28th.

Both reissues have been remastered by Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and come accompanied by a second disc of unreleased music. According to a press release, “the Led Zeppelin IV deluxe edition includes unreleased versions of every song appearing on the original album, including alternate mixes of ‘Misty Mountain Hop’ and ‘Four Sticks’, mixes of ‘The Battle Of Evermore’ and ‘Going To California’ heavy with guitar and mandolin, and the fabled, alternate version ‘Stairway To Heaven’, mixed at the Sunset Sound Studio in Los Angeles which lets fans hear one of the most revered songs of all time as they have never heard it before.”

Meanwhile, the companion disc for Houses Of The Holy includes rough and working mixes for “The Ocean” and “Dancing Days”, a guitar mix backing track for “Over The Hills And Far Away”, and a version of “The Rain Song” without piano.

Bloody Knees Stitches (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 29, 2014 9:20am | StereoGum

Bloody Knees are a British pop-punk band that alternate between grungy drone and rapturous vigor. “Stitches,” the title track from their upcoming EP on Dog Knights, is sort of like Blue Album era Weezer if they’d hewed closer to Nirvana than Pavement. Although the band name is Bloody Knees, the song is about when frontman Bradley Griffiths smashed his face open while on tour with Wolf Alice. “I’m covered in blood/ But at least I’m having fun” goes the chorus. Here’s the gory visual evidence:
