Like Tigers Jaw, The Menzingers, and others before them, Cave People (the project of David Tomaine) relocated from Scranton, PA to Philly to further pursue music, and also like those bands they exist somewhere between punk and indie rock. Cave People's debut EP, Older, is coming out December 9 via Stereophonodon (pre-order), and its newest single "Brace" is premiering in this post. It's good stuff if you're into this sort of thing. Check it out, along with previous single "Cluster," below.

JD McPhersons Top 10 Post-50s Rockabilly Albums
Nov 24, 2014 12:03pm | CMJ

JD McPherson – Photo by Kelly Kerr

A guy like JD McPherson does not like to be called “rockabilly.” Despite having played in a fine, fairly traditional rockabilly band, the Starkweather Boys, it’s understandable. In the mainstream mind, rockabilly has long been associated with cartoon-like dress-up and eye roll-inducing combos with words like “Daddies” or “Rockin’” in their names. But to those who dig (pun intended) deeper, there’s a world of underground, post-Cramps induced greaser rock that continues to influence. And when a band is at least as concerned with layering on the music as the pomade, the traditional stuff can always summon a vintage heart-tug.

And there’s McPherson himself who, on his upcoming, second solo album, Let The Good Times Roll, out February 10 on Rounder, tamps down obvious tailfin and leopard print creeper moves and burns a lower gauged roots rumble that also doesn’t fall into sports bar blues. So he even got a little burned up when asking for his favorite post-1950s rockabilly records, but then came through like a pro. Check out his list and the lead album single, Bossy, below. Some European and U.K. dates are in the works for January, but no announced U.S. dates just yet.

Eminem Guts Over Fear (Feat. Sia) Video
Nov 24, 2014 12:03pm | StereoGum

Eminem and Sia’s single “Guts Over Fear” now has a video to coincide with the release of Eminem’s new Shady Records compilation Shady XV. The clip matches footage of Eminem rapping in a warehouse with a narrative about a boxer overcoming many life obstacles in pursuit of his dreams. He has fear, see, but what he has even more of is guts. Watch below.

Video : Marika Hackman : Drown
Nov 24, 2014 11:59am | My Old Kentucky Blog

February 16th will see the release of Marika Hackman’s debut album, We Slept At Last, through Dirty Hit. Today, she has unveiled the dark video for lead single “Drown”. The video, found below, came with the following note from Hackman:

The song itself deals with the idea of suffocating on the power of human emotion and finding it painful yet strangely euphoric in a masochistic way. With my music not a lot of people pick up the underlying violence within the lyrics so I wanted to create a video that would indulge in the dark but beautiful intensity of these words. Working with the directors, Brian and Karl, we drew inspiration from the works of American video artist Bill Viola and the way he contrasts human subjects with the black voids he places them in, to create an erie beauty and serenity which simultaneously belies the violence of what is actually happening.

Oh to drown in your mind I would, I know I would. To suffocate in your smoke Id choke on you if I could. Maybe I will.


Think Band Aid 30 couldnt get any worse? Not so fast
Nov 24, 2014 11:56am | Fact Magazine

Bob Geldof’s pick for a ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ remix won’t surprise anyone.

Since Geldof’s call for anyone who has downloaded Band Aid 30s Ebola charity single to delete the song and buy it again won’t work (iTunes doesn’t work that way), he’s got another idea to match the original Band Aids £8 million result: a dance remix… by David Guetta.

Im in France, I made contact with David Guetta, and he texted back after I asked if he was interested in the mix, and he said, ye, why not, Geldof says. So well have the whole dance scene covered.

We’d argue with that last point, and we’d be surprised if this sees the light of day. If not, Geldof also has all-female and all-male versions lined up.


Eminem premieres video for Guts Over Fear featuring Sia watch
Nov 24, 2014 11:54am | Cosequence Of Sound

Eminem has released the video for his Sia-featuring single “Guts Over Fear”. Directed by Syndrome, the same creative force behind the MC’s visuals for “Berzerk” and “3 a.m.”, the clip follows a Detroit man’s tale of triumph, as he overcomes financial hardship, family dysfunction, and more, to become a prize-winning boxer. Drawing a parallel between the protagonist and Em’s own rags-to-riches story, it’s a moving narrative about the power of persistence and passion. Watch it below.

“Guts Over Fear” is the lead single to Eminem’s new career-spanning anthology Shady XV. Celebrating 15 years of Shady Records, the two-disc album features one disc of greatest hits and another of new tracks by Shady artists including Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, D-12, and Eminem and Royce da 59s group, Bad Meets Evil. Detroit Vs. Everybody features Royce and Em alongside Big Sean, Danny Brown, DeJ Loaf, and Trick Trick. To ease the wait until Shady XV‘s November 24th release date, Eminem teamed with DJ Whoo Kid to release a 66-track mixtape called Shady Classics, which you can listen to now.



Kevin Gates Perfect Imperfection
Nov 24, 2014 11:52am | StereoGum

16 days before 2014 ends, the Baton Rouge rap monster Kevin Gates will release a new mixtape, presumably because he likes making things difficult for those of us who are trying to make “best rap mixtape of 2014″ lists. Gates has already shared a generous handful of tracks that will probably appear on his forthcoming Luca Brasi 2: “Reasonable Suspicion,” “Crazy,” “I Don’t Get Tired,” “Out The Mud.” The latest is “Perfect Imperfection,” which has a name like a goofy R&B self-affirmation but which turns out to be a hyena banger about knowing that nobody understands you and maybe being proud of it. Listen below.

The Decemberists share "Make You Better" video starring Nick Offerman (watch)
Nov 24, 2014 11:49am | Brooklyn Vegan

You may have already heard The Decemberists' new single, "Make You Better" from their new album, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, but you can now check out the video. It stars their old Parks & Rec buddy Nick Offerman as host of a '70s German TV show called The Old Blue Rock Palace Show which is clearly a blend of The Old Grey Whistle Test and Rockpalast. After a brief and awkward interview with Colin Meloy, The Decemberists take the stage as a romantic drama featuring Offerman plays out behind the scenes. Funny and a little sweet, it was directed by Bill Fishman, who some of you may remember as making the 1988 cult classic Tapeheads. Watch it below.

The Decemberists' tour with Alvvays hits NYC on April 6 at Beacon Theatre. Tickets are still available but "not many left" according to Ticketmaster.

Ghostface Killah Blood On The Streets (Feat. AZ)
Nov 24, 2014 11:32am | StereoGum

Ghostface Killah has been voted the rapper most likely to release a concept album about a vigilante superhero driven by revenge every year since 1994, and now he’s doing it. 36 Seasons comes out in a couple of weeks, and we’ve posted the early tracks “Love Don’t Live Here No More,” “The Battlefield,” and “Double Cross.” “Blood On The Streets” is the latest he’s shared. Like “The Battlefield” and “Double Cross” before it, it features fellow ’90s veteran AZ, whose hardnosed understatedness makes him a nice foil for Ghost. It’s also got a warm, tough, soul-dazed beat put together by the 45 King with the Revelations. Listen below.

Lip Talk opening for Intepol, releasing a new EP (song stream)
Nov 24, 2014 11:23am | Brooklyn Vegan

Interpol, who are now successfully free of snowstorm trappage and who made one of Q's favorite LPs of 2014, are set to bring their tour with Hundred Waters to NYC for three sold-out Terminal 5 shows this week, tonight (11/24) through Wednesday (11/26). (They're also on Late Night with Seth Meyers tonight.) As discussed, tonight and Wednesday have Hundred Waters opening but they're not on the Tuesday show. Instead, that show will be opened by NYC's Lip Talk, the band formerly known as Railbird.

Lip Talk, led by the duo of Sarah and Chris Kyle and fleshed out by bassist Derek Leslie (Tiny Hazard, Asobi Seksu) and drummer Ian Chang (Matthew Dear, Body Language), are set to release a new EP in early 2015. We've got the premiere of that EP's shiny synth pop single "Ghost" which you can check out below.

Meanwhile, the night Lip Talk open for Interpol, Hundred Waters headline their own show at Rough Trade (11/25) with a solo set from Mutual Benefit's Jordan Lee (tickets). They also go on a headlining tour in 2015 that brings them back to NYC on 3/5 at MHOW (tickets).

Tirelessly innovative Norwegian troupe Jaga Jazzist have been around for two decades now, and they’re celebrating with a special show at London’s Union Chapel.

It’s set for November 29, and will feature the band’s current 9-piece (!) lineup rocking through the kind of bizarre musical experimentation that has characterized their sound all this time. They won’t be alone either, and will be accompanied by another Ninja Tune live act – Dorian Concept. Supporting his Joined Ends album he follows the success of a recent appearance at London’s KOKO as Dorian Concept Trio with a special solo performance.
