Prince holds dance party in tribute to Freddie Gray
May 4, 2015 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Prince recently announced a new song titled “Baltimore”, written in tribute to Freddie Gray, the man allegedly killed while in police custody, and all other citizens of the Maryland city who have found themselves persecuted as a result of social injustices. However, the musician’s involvement doesn’t end there.

Over the weekend, Prince held Dance Rally 4 Peace at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Fans were alerted of the surprise concert via social media, and were encouraged to wear the color gray in honor of Freddie Gray.

The concert saw Prince and 3rdEyeGirl perform “Chaos & Disorder”, “Dreamer”, “Crimson & Clover”, and “Guitar”. The encore included



Rolling Stones reissuing 'Sticky Fingers' in new deluxe editions (stream an alternate version of "Bitch")
May 4, 2015 11:59am | Brooklyn Vegan

Rolling Stones are reissuing their classic 1971 album Sticky Fingers on June 8 worldwide (June 9 in North America). It's coming out, via Universal Music, in a variety of formats including a deluxe double-LP edition that recreates Andy Warhol's original cover design complete with real zipper. There are also Deluxe and Super Deluxe box sets that include: the alternative version of the chart-topping single "Brown Sugar" featuring Eric Clapton; unreleased interpretations of "Bitch," "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" and "Dead Flowers"; an acoustic take on "Wild Horses", and five tracks recorded live at The Roundhouse in 1971 including "Honky Tonk Women" and "Midnight Rambler." We've got the premiere of an extended, alternate version of "Bitch" which was recorded in 1970 at Mick Jagger's country home, Stargroves. It features different horn lines than you may know from the original album version. You can stream that below.

The Super Deluxe edition also has a 120 page book with new liner notes and unseen photographs. It's also got Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out!, a 13-track audio recording of the Stones' gig in Leeds in March 1971, shortly before their "exile" in France began. The set included versions of the then-brand-new "Brown Sugar," "Bitch" and "Dead Flowers."

Pre-orders are available now. You can also get digital versions of the various editions, and if you pre-order the Deluxe edition on iTunes, you get instant downloads of the acousti...


Vince Staples
May 4, 2015 11:53am | StereoGum
One of last year's best rap albums wasn't an album at all; it was Hell Can Wait, an EP from the Long Beach rapper Vince Staples that lasted seven songs and 24 minutes. In that brief window of time, Staples perfected an icy, minimal, intense, politically charged, emotionally seething form of rap -- something … More »



Q&A: Johanna Warren On The Spiritual Awakening That Wrought Her New Album + Stream n
May 4, 2015 11:46am | StereoGum
Johanna Warren is frequently depicted as an all-seeing celestial body. Even without knowing Warren's unique spiritual leanings, it's near-impossible to listen to her sophomore album and not consider the Portland-based singer to be some kind of unassuming sage. n

The Rolling Stones
May 4, 2015 11:41am | StereoGum
For many people, Sticky Fingers represents the height of the Rolling Stones' power, between Andy Warhol's suggestive cover art -- which you can see the band posing with above -- and the album's triple-platinum status due to the success of "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses." Over four decades later, the Stones are reissuing their … More »

Austin, TX’s Dana Falconberry surprised this morning with the unveil of new EP, The Lower Night. According to her, the EO is a “return to the organic way I used to find refuge in songwriting” after the business of music “muddied the process” for her (full letter found here). After listening once through already, we can say for certain this is some of her best work in a long while showcasing her angelic voice over a fluttering acoustic guitar.

Bully
May 4, 2015 11:27am | StereoGum
Feels Like, the debut album from the enormously promising Nashville fuzz-rock quartet Bully, is coming out next month, and we've heard the early singles "I Remember" and "Trying." The band has just shared the "I Remember" video, and it's about as raw and minimal as a music video can be. The whole clip … More »



Sleater-Kinney @ Hollywood Palladium: May 1, 2015
May 4, 2015 11:26am | CMJ


Almost three months into Sleater-Kinney’s first tour since 2006, and they are seriously rocking. Starting last Friday night’s show in L.A. with hair flips and stiff-leg marching, guitarist and vocalist Carrie Brownstein waited until about seven songs in to start high jumping on stage and consistently knocking down her mic stand. It was almost laughable how often the band’s roadie needed to scurry on stage with the speed and agility of a Wimbledon ball boy to return the stand to its upright position before it immediately found its way back to the ground. Drummer Janet Weiss kept the energy up as she was constantly thrashing and flipping her hair out of her face as the wind machine meant to blow the backdrop kept sweeping past her.

Before playing their new single, A New Wave, the band dedicated the song to Tina Belcher, of Bob’s Burgers fame, who is in the music video for the song. It wouldn’t be surprising if comedian Dan Mintz, who voices Tina, was in the crowd that night considering the who’s who of comedians in attendance, including Kumail Nanjiani and the voice of Gene Belcher himself, Eugene Mirman.

For most of the show, guitarist and vocalist Corin Tucker stood at her mic screaming intensely or looking at the crowd doe-eyed, only occasionally stepping away to shred alongside Brownstein. Finally though, when the band started to reach the end of its initial set, Tucker began to thrash about on ...


Giorgio Moroder and Charli XCX team up on
May 4, 2015 11:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

Giorgio Moroder is gearing up to release his first album in 30 years, Déjà Vu, this June through RCA. The star-studded affair has already been previewed with the Sia-aided title track, “Right Here, Right Now” featuring Kylie Minogue, and his Britney Spears-assisted cover of “Tom’s Diner”. Now, he’s gifted fans with “Diamonds”, his collaboration with Charli XCX.

Here, the “Boom Clap” singer’s glitzy pop prowess and Moroder’s frenetic mix combine for a lustrous, nightclub-ready anthem. The disco icon may have been out of the game for some time, but there’s a reason he’s regarded as a legend — even after three decades, he sounds as lively as ever and can easily give any modern-day producer a run for his money. Listen in below.

The highly-anticipated Déjà Vu hits shelves on June 12th.

Déjà Vu Tracklist:
01. 4 U With Love
02. Déjà Vu feat. Sia
03. Diamonds feat. Charli XCX
04. Don
