The X-Files David Duchovny to release album of folk rock music
Mar 31, 2015 1:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Who knew 2015 was going to be such a big year for David Duchovny? He just put out his first novel (the New York Times best-seller Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale), he’s returning as Agent Fox Mulder in a new season of The X-Files, and now this: Duchovny has announced his debut solo album, Hell or Highwater. 

Due out May 12th on ThinkSay Records, the 12-track album sees the actor/writer/musician delivering “poetic lyrics and infectious melodies,” according to a press release. From a series of preview videos (which you can watch below), it seems the music will fall into the folk/rock troubadour realm of sound.

Making this record is a dream come true, but I never had this dream it’s still a shock when I think about how all this music happened, Duchovny said of the release.  What I do know is that I feel these songs represent the truest expression that I’ve ever been able to achieve and I look forward to sharing it with everyone.

The title track is available for purchase via iTunes, while pre-orders for the full record are going on here. Below, find the album art, preview clips, and tracklist.

Hell or Highwater Tracklist:
01. Let it Rain
02. 3000
03. Stars
04. Hell or Highwater
05. The Things
06. The Rain Song
07. Unsaid Undone

De La Soul Kickstarted their next album in less than 24 hours
Mar 31, 2015 1:32pm | Chart Attack

Pioneering hip-hop trio De La Soul haven't blessed us with a full-length of sunshine since 2004's The Grind Date, but Monday, they announced that they've been at work on a new record for the past three years and you, the fan, could help bring the thing to fruition via Kickstarter. At the time of publishing, just over 24 hours after the 32-day campaign went live, they've raised $196,000. That's 178% of their $110,000 goal.

You might recall that in February of last year, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of 3 Feet High and Rising, the trio made their entire catalogue downloadable for the low, low price of your email a move that backfired when the servers went down but, in hindsight, helped this latest fundraising blast land squarely in the mailboxes of their hungriest fans.

For this upcoming, yet to be titled album, Posdnous, Dave, and Maseo decided, in light of their historic legal battles around sampling, they'll exclusively sample themselves. For the last few years, they've hunkered down with L.A. studio musicians in the historic Vox studio to produce over 200 hours of original music that they can pour over, chop, edit, and sample from to their hearts' content.

To pile quirk atop quirk, the next album boasts guest spots by Damon Albarn, 2 Chainz, and David Byrne, which probably don't come cheap, especially without the help of a label.

Can De La Soul become an internet band? It seems so.

De La Soul Ki...

Refused Announce World Tour
Mar 31, 2015 1:22pm | StereoGum
When Refused reunited for a tour in 2012, it seemed to be a one-time thing. Then they fired guitarist Jon Brännström last year, which suggested the seminal Swedish hardcore band had more plans in store. As Brooklyn Vegan points out, the band has revealed some of those plans in the form of an intercontinental tour. Pitchfork also points to rumors that Refused are working on a new album. Check out the dates below, and see photos from their last tour here, here, and here.

New trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road premieres online watch
Mar 31, 2015 1:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Thus far, all previews of Warner Bros.’s upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road has been focused on the stunning visuals from the film’s “feature-length chase scene.” But in the latest trailer, we become privy to more of the movie’s plot.

It seems Max (Tom Hardy) has left a city with Furiosa (Charlize Theron), against the wishes of the city’s ruler, Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). Together with a group of women whom Joe sees as his “property,” Max and Furiosa must cross the desert and survive being hunted by Joe’s vicious army of road warriors.

Of course, the two-and-a-half minute trailer still features plenty of mind-blowing action shots, so take a look below:

Written and directed by franchise mastermind George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters May 15th. Starring alongside Hardy, Theron, and Keays-Byrne are Zoë Kravitz and Nicholas Hoult.

Is Tidal a terrible business proposition, or has Jay Z actually made another smart move?
Mar 31, 2015 1:00pm | Fact Magazine

Life has rarely resembled Zoolander quite like Tidals wackadoo press conference.

Last night, a crack team of pop stars assembled to announce the launch of Jay Zs music streaming service, then sign some kind of document in solidarity, then quote Nietzsche. Equally strange and poorly conceived was this weekends surprise announcement of the nascent service, in which the same beautiful people painted their Twitter personas turquoise. This shitshow did very little to answer important questions about Tidal, such as why?, especially when the services $19.99 monthly fee is double that of Spotify (its most obvious competition).

Its easy to clown Jay Z for the entire venture. Its easy to roll ones eyes when he drops eight figures on a Norwegian tech company. Its easy to write him off as, at best, out of touch, or, at worst, straight-up arrogant for diving headfirst into the crowded, impossible field of music streaming. But like Derek Zoolander, Mr. Carters heart might be in the right place. And if you look past the beautiful celebrities and (insert Zoolander reference here), there might actually be a plan unfolding.

To see Tidals potential, one has to understand streaming musics uphill climb thus far. As with every music-related business on the internet, the heart of the problem is simple: music is just not worth what it used to be and the recording industry has struggled to adjust. In the old, pre-internet wor...

Mourn played Mercury Lounge with Laced (pics)

Mourn @ Mercury Lounge 3/30/2015

"I'm so happy I can't believe it!" Jazz, one of Mourn's two singer/guitarists, was clearly excited to be playing her first-ever NYC shows. She then unironically introduced the next number, "This song's called 'Misery Factory'!" It was a very funny, if unintentionally so, moment at the young Barcelona band's second NYC show. (Mourn made their US debut on Sunday.) While their stage demeanor tipped their age (15-18), their PJ Harvey/Hole brand of indie rock sounded confident -- their debut album is good -- with enthusiasm in spades.

It's almost a shame that Mourn's show couldn't have been part of Monday night's late show at Mercury Lounge -- they would've fit right in with Swervedriver, sonically at least. Mourn play Boston tonight (3/31) and then head to the West Coast for a couple California shows.

Laced, which features Dustin from Beach Fossils and Ryan from Nude Beach, opened the show. I got there, unfortunately, right as they said "thank you and good night" but our photographer was on time and caught them. Pictures of both bands continue, including one of Mourn's setlist, below...

Lower Dens takeover: David Bowie live at Nassau coliseum (1976)
Mar 31, 2015 12:50pm | Gorilla Vs Bear

The light of Bowie’s stardom often obscures the names of his formidable side people. In this celebrated live show (listen to the full show here) it is impossible to ignore the energy and inventiveness of Carlos Alomar, George Murray and Dennis Davis, the core of the band which helped cement his reputation in the seventies. — Nate Nelson, Lower Dens
