Childish Gambino calls out Drake and Kendrick Lamar

Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, had his very own “Control” moment during a concert in Sydney over the weekend. The actor-turned-emcee delivered a blistering freestyle in which he deemed himself “the best rapper” and called out Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and ScHoolboy Q.

Gambino rapped: “I’m the best rapper, definitely top five. If these other rappers think they’re better, they’re fucking not alive. I cut their head off, that’s every rapper living. That’s Kendrick. That’s Drake. That’s ScHoolboy. That’s everyone. I don’t give a fuck, I’ll kill niggas.”

Later, he took another shot at Drake, rapping: “This nigga think he Drake. Nah I aint Drake. I sing better, I do better, my shit wetter.”

Veruca Salt played Bowery Ballroom & Music Hall of Williamsburg (pics, setlist, video from MHOW)

Veruca Salt @ MHOW 7/25/2014

Towards the end of the evening, Louise confirmed that the band were in good spirits, telling the crowd "So, this great thing happened. Nina and I got over our shit." She also thanked us for selling out the show in 4 minutes (!), saying this was proof that we were the best New York audience. By the time the time came for their most notable hit "Seether", the crowed lost its mind, singing back every word, almost overtaking the band. Right before they played it, a guy next to me screamed "here it is, don't fight it!" He had no reason to be worried, every single body in the Bowery Ballroom lost their shit. - [We All Want Someone to Shout For]
The reactivated original lineup of Veruca Salt played their first NYC shows since the Clinton years last week, hitting Bowery Ballroom on Thursday (7/24, same night as their onetime DGC labelmates Teenage Fanclub were playing River Rocks), and Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday (7/25). In addition to new songs "It's Holy" and "Museum of Broken Relationships," the band delivered '90s faves like "Seether," "Number One Blind," "Shutterbug," and "Victrola." Setlist, pics and video of "Number One Blind" from the MHOW show are in this post.

Portland, OR band Battleme opened both NYC shows. Pics from their MHOW set, plus more of Veruca Salt, below...

Strand Of Oaks Same Emotions Video
Jul 28, 2014 10:00am | StereoGum

Not too long ago, Timothy Showalter, who records as Strand Of Oaks, released an intense and deeply satisfying rock album called HEAL. And after making videos for the album tracks “Goshen ’97” and “Shut In,” he’s got a new one for “Same Emotions.” This one works as a mini-horror movie, with Showalter playing a vampire pimp who helps a trio of lovely bloodsucker ladies lure a few coked-up bros to their doom. Watch it below.

Black Cobra at SXSW 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)

Deafening duo Black Cobra will be heading out on the road for a month long tour with fellow thick-tone rockers Lo-Pan. The tour gets rolling at the end of August and winds through places like Austin, Boston, and Chicago. On September 18, the two will roll into NYC's Saint Vitus for an Invisible Oranges-presented show. Kings Destroy and Godmaker are also on the bill along with another supporting act to be named later. Tickets for Saint Vitus are available now. All dates are listed below.

Black Cobra have racked up the miles this year, including a short jaunt with the recently reformed Cutthroats 9. They'll also be working on their next full-length with a prospective release window of early 2015. Tourmates and brothers in heft Lo-Pan will be dropping their new album Colossus through stoner sanctuary Small Stone Recordings on October 7. NYC doomers Kings Destroy are riding the positive press wave of sophomore release A Time of Hunting which came out last year. Finally, sludgesters Godmaker have been bringing the riffs at dates like the recent Mortals record release show.

All dates are listed, with streams of all 4 bands on the Vitus show, below...

The Lees Of Memory We Are Siamese Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 28, 2014 9:57am | StereoGum

The Lees Of Memory are a superb new Tennessee shoegaze trio comprising ex-Superdrag members John Davis and Brandon Fisher plus Nick Slack, who drummed for another Davis-fronted band called Epic Ditch. They’ve just signed to SideOneDummy and will release debut album Sisyphus Says this fall. The lead single is “Sisyphus Says,” a song that shows an almost supernatural understanding of the sonic trickery that made Loveless such a game-changer. If you squint, you can hear traces of good old-fashioned American rock ’n’ roll under the ethereal swell. But yeah, mostly it’s just expertly executed shoegaze. For the video, director Elvis Wilson shot the band around producer Nick Raskulinecz’s Rock Falcon, Tennessee compound and applied heavy visual effects to match the music. Raskulinecz appears in the video on bass to honor his massive contributions to the record. Watch and enjoy below.

Watch: Karen O Rapt Video
Jul 28, 2014 9:50am | CMJ


Late last month we got word that Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O would be releasing a solo album inspired by the “ever-continuing love crusade” of her late twenties, called Crush Songs. Rapt is the album’s first single, which debuted in the form of a video directed by Karen O’s husband, Barney Clay.

Rapt is a grainy, lo-fi song, with intimate, vulnerable vocals and a lonely acoustic guitar offset by lyrics like, “love’s a fucking bitch.” Crush Songs arrives in September on Julian Casablancas’ label Cult Records. Listen to Rapt below.

The post Watch: Karen O – “Rapt” Video appeared first on CMJ.


The Silver State The Colorado (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 28, 2014 9:48am | StereoGum

The Silver State is a “quiet psych” act specializing in dreamy vast-landscape folk-rock more befitting the American West than the band’s native Brooklyn. So it only makes sense that the lead single from the Silver State’s upcoming LP Outside is about the Colorado river. “The Colorado” has a bleary-eyed float and gentle glimmer that remind me of Wilco’s “Sunken Treasure,” but the song’s spaced-out depiction of mountainous terrain recalls the likes of Grandaddy and the Microphones. And when that guitar solo rips into the frame about two minutes in, it elicits chills on par with Built To Spill’s best work. As always, Neil Young’s spirit lingers too. There’s so much to love about this beautiful sprawl, so let it wash over you below.

Cancers releasing an LP (stream two tracks)
Jul 28, 2014 9:44am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Athens, GA's Cancers were in NYC for a show earlier this month with Iron Chic, Waxahatchee/Swearin' side project Great Thunder, and one of Mikey Erg's many bands Now People (maybe you caught it?). If you like any of those bands, you'll most likely dig Cancers too. '90s alternative rock is the biggest reference point here, and the fact that they got Nirvana/Mudhoney/Soundgarden producer Jack Endino to helm their upcoming debut record, Fatten the Leeches, couldn't be more appropriate. Their grungy guitars are more than a little inspired by those early Sub Pop bands, but singer Ella Kaspar takes an airier approach, more akin to the dream pop bands of that era. It's a good mix, as you can hear on new single "Moral Net" which premieres in this post. You can listen below, along with another LP cut, "Be Cool."

The record comes out on September 16 on CD and digital via the band's own Kandy Kane Records, and Dead Broke Rekerds (who recently put out the Crow Bait / Nona split) is releasing it on vinyl and cassette. Song streams below...

Faces bleed into each other for CFCFs Strange Form Of Life music video
Jul 28, 2014 9:43am | Chart Attack

Here I was JUST saying that we needed a "Three Transitions" for the datamosh age, in my empty office, with the lights out. Where is everyone? Are they dead? Did they hear my insightful comparison before they died? Till we find out, here's "Strange Form Of Life," a prog-synth jam from Montreal electronic alchemist CFCF. Jared Raab (Nirvana The Band The Show, The Dirties, music videos) uses a variety of transitions over a portrait of a man's face to A Scanner Darkly effect and creates someone entirely new.

CFCF's new record Outside is out now via Paper Bag.

Stream: Chromes Feel It Like A Scientist, their first album in 12 years
Jul 28, 2014 9:35am | Cosequence Of Sound

San Francisco-based experimental rock band Chrome will release their first album in over 12 years, Feel It Like A Scientist, on August 5th via King of Spades. In anticipation, its streaming in full below.

Formed in 1975, Chrome began as the solo project of musician Damon Edge, whose work focused on the fusion of punk, psychedelic, and industrial rock, all with a decidedly Avant garde flair. Chromes most renowned releases came with 1978s Alien Soundtracks and 1979s Half Machine Lip Moves, which saw Edge embrace reinvigorate rock with a sense of creative recklessness. By 1979, guitarist Helios Creed had joined the band, eventually become Chromes only other long-term member.

By the mid-1980s, Chrome reverted back to being primarily a solo endeavor for Edge, a status that was retained until his passing in 1995. From there, Creed rejoined as the band’s guiding creative force. For the next several years, Chrome performed together and released several albums and EPs. However, following the release of 2002s Angel of the Clouds and Ghost Machine, the band enacted a more reduced schedule.

For Feel It Like A Scientist, Creed recruited a new lineup of musicians, including singer Anne Dromeda, guitarist Keith Thompson, and synthist Tommy Grenas. The collective spent the last two-plus years recording at the...


I IM EYE MY New Millenium & Streetcat Bonfire Videos (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 28, 2014 9:28am | StereoGum

I IM EYE MY is a new project from Al Creedon of Bleeding Rainbow and Sean Hamilton of Spacin’, and today, they’ve shared a music-video double feature. Taken together, “New Millennium Life Implementation/Transportation Trading Company Unlimited” and “Streetcat Bonfire” (both songs are from I IM EYE MY’s cassette release, 7 Transmissions for the label Not Not Fun) illustrate the potency and dynamism of this combination. The former is a glowing, synth-fried take on psych-rock (with a futuristic, neon-colored video to go along with it), while the latter is a dark, percussive workout that brings to mind Liars circa Drum’s Not Dead, which soundtracks a black-and-white cartoon that follows the creepy hallucinogenic adventures of a cat. You might not believe it, but both are the work of one director: Japhy Riddle. Watch both videos below, and check out I IM EYE MY on tour now.
