Watch a 12-minute Kanye West freestyle from 2005
May 24, 2013 12:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Eight years ago, Kanye West stopped by the Tim Westwood radio show in the UK and freestyled for about 12 minutes and it’s great. The year is 2005, so of course Yeezy is rapping about conflict diamonds in Africa, but many topics are broached, including how to make the best rap songs (get a beat from Kanye), and a verse that starts from reading messages fans are sending to him in real-time. Any number of lines could be highlighted, but here’s one that cracked Kanye up after he said it: “I’m out in UK, and I ask ‘em who’s the best and the say, ‘You, K.’” Watch the playback below (via Fake Shore Drive).

The Decemberists in Austin in 2011 (more by Tim
It's been a while since we've heard from The Decemberists, but the band's members are still finding ways to keep busy. Their side project, Black Prairie, whose lineup now includes four of the five Decemberists members (Chris Funk, Nate Query, Jenny Conlee, and John Moen -- aka everyone except Colin Meloy), released a new album this year which is a "soundtrack" for New York Times magazine writer Jon Mooallem's book, Wild Ones. You can stream that album in its entirety below, and read what Jon Mooallem had to say about it at Slate.
Black Prairie are also going on a tour which includes previously discussed stops at Bonnaroo and Newport Folk Festival. The tour hits NYC for a show with Michael Hurley at City Winery on July 29, the day after they play Newport Folk Festival. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Colin Meloy plays Newport Folk Fest too, so if he and his bandmates don't team up for at least one Decemberists song, that's just cruel and unusual. It's one of three solo shows Colin has scheduled (all festivals, none in NYC). All upcoming Black Prairie and Colin Meloy dates are listed below.
Finally, as mentioned, John Moen is releasing a new solo album, Revise Your Maps, on June 25 via Jealous Butcher Records. We already posted the song "Ramble Scramble" from t...

May 24, 2013 12:01pm | The Daily Swarm
Writer John Lingan examines the impact of Patsy Cline — and modernity — on the singer’s hometown of Winchester, Virginia for The Morning News. Her home in Winchester, where she lived between 1948 and 1957, was restored two years ago. Of course, like so many things in a small town, it came with its fair share of controversy.

watch Grizzly Bear perform "Yet Again" on... Ellen?
May 24, 2013 11:35am | Brooklyn Vegan
Indie bands have been mainstays of the late night talk show circuit for years now, but they're starting to infiltrate morning shows too. Case in point: Grizzly Bear just played Ellen this morning (5/24), which most certainly introduced their music to a new audience. (Yesterday, Michael Bolton was the musical guest.) You can watch them do Shields' track, "Yet Again," below (via P4k).

If it seems as though we’ve been talking about the National’s excellent new record Trouble Will Find Me for weeks now it’s because we have. Even though the record was just released this week, fascination with the band and a buzzing curiosity about how they might follow up 2010′s powerhouse High Violet have kept music writers (and our own comments sections) very busy over the past month or so. Initial reactions to the album have been largely positive, with our own Tom Breihan claiming that Trouble‘s “soft, majestic intensity is a reassuring and comfortable thing.” It’s a sentiment that seems to be at the core of what so many people love about the National — a band continues to age gracefully, not through a series of radical reinventions or extreme left-turns, but by playing to their own particular strengths as songwriters … which seem to have grown more formidable with each consecutive record.

Listen to Ghost B.C.
May 24, 2013 11:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
Here’s another Japanese bonus track for you: Swedish metal lords Ghost B.C. take Depeche Mode’s most serene, meditative track in their catalogue — ahem, “Waiting for the Night” — and turn it into the sort of rock ‘n’ roll theatrical flair that Dream Theater or Roger Waters might conjure up.
As Exclaim.ca points out, the cover comes stripped off the Japanese edition of the band’s latest album, Infestissumam. Save yourself the shipping on eBay, however, and stream it below.
Infestissumam is now available via Loma Vista Recordings.
