Son Lux announces new album, premieres Change Is Everything listen
Mar 27, 2015 11:10am | Cosequence Of Sound

Last year, Son Luxs Ryan Lott released a number of high-profile collaborations, including a track with global pop star Lorde and a full-length album with Sufjan Stevens and Serengeti as the supergroup Sisyphus. Now, Lott is turning his attention back to Son Lux, with plans to release a new album called Bones on June 23rd through Glassnote Records. The LP follows 2013’s Lanterns and is the first featuring the band’s expanded lineup of Ian Chang (drums) and Rafiq Bhatia (guitar).

In anticipation, the newly minted trio has revealed “Change Is Everything”. Exhilaratingly unpredictable at every turn, it’s a glowing number that sounds like Polyphonic Spree in overdrive. Listen in below.




Ben Stiller's high school band Capital Punishment getting album reissued by Captured Tracks (listen)
Mar 27, 2015 11:08am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

When in high school in New York, Ben Stiller and a couple of his friends formed a "ridiculously weird band" called Capital Punishment. Ben played drums and said on Howard Stern, "We were listening to a lot of Bowie and Eno...we recorded an album. It's not great but some songs were okay." That Capital Punishment album, 1982's Roadkill, was self-released but is being reissued by Captured Tracks this fall. Ben told Howard:

What happened was some outsider music label, which I didn't know those existed, but people who are just into weird music; I guess it's been found and they asked us if they could re-release it. They're called Captured Tracks. They're a real company.
You can stream a few tracks below and the Bowie/Eno influence can definitely be heard. (It's actually pretty good.) Frontman Kriss Roebling ("the one with the talent" says Stiller) shared a little info on the album's creation:
Emboldened by an intensive audio engineering tutorial that I had recently taken, we submerged ourselves in all of this amazing analog studio gadgetry, and often wrote whole songs around the capabilities of a specific piece of gear. This endless world of sonic potential felt like it had opened up to us, and we used this experience to get our freak on in a big way. To hell with tuning the instruments, or singing in key, there are amazing soundsca...


MG Europa Hymn Video
Mar 27, 2015 11:03am | StereoGum
Depeche Mode founding member Martin Gore previously announced his solo album MG and shared the single "Europa Hymn." It's a calm, galactic song that has the "sci-fi" and "filmic" qualities that Gore says represent the sound of the entire album. In that vein, the video for the clip is a simple, drawing-based clip directed by M-I-E that incorporates musical equipment like knobs and piano keys into landscapes that slide by. I love the use of color in the video, shifting from simple black and white to swaths of rainbow colors. It reminds me of the rainbow scratch paper I loved as a kid, simple enough for a child but still elegant in the hands of a deft artist. Watch it below.



CMJ Chart Recap: March 24, 2015

In Chart Recap we take a look at what’s happening on the CMJ charts each week. Check out the CMJ Radio 200 top 20 for the week. CMJ NMR Subscribers can login to view the complete charts.

Spring has arrived, although less apparently so than we would like in New York. In college radio, this transition to Spring means things slow down a little bit on the charts as music directors head out for spring break. But this season also means there are lots of heavy hitting albums making a go of it in college radio right now. So when you take lots of competition and fewer reporters what do you get? Well this week it meant Father John Misty easily kept his chart topping spot. With Dan Deacon at No. 2, José González at No. 3 and Purity Ring at No. 4, next weeks No. 1 could be anybodys game. Of Montreal is holding down No. 5, but likely will have stiff competition with the albums in the preceding slots, as well as with the albums that will be making moves towards the top over the next couple of weeks.

Twin Shadow’s Eclipse, after coming in as the most added album last week, jumped up to No. 33 from No. 129. After just coming in as the 10th most added album last week,
Tobias Jesso Jr. has lived up to the hype and anticipation of Goon by debuting at No. 38 this week. The most added album this week, was unsurprisingly Modest Mouses Strangers ...

FULL SCREEN: Run The Jewels fight day and night, LIDS take a beating
Mar 27, 2015 10:35am | Chart Attack
Full Screen collects all of the remarkable videos we've seen in the last 24 hours. Today, Run The Jewels are tired of fighting, Brian Borcherdt takes one for the team, and Pile are rebels without anything even close to a cause.

Run The Jewels, "Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)"

For the angriest cut on an album full of rightly angry cuts, RTJ throw a curveball. This could have been revolution a torched police car, vigilante justice but months removed from the fieriest flashpoints, a battle cry seems unnecessary, insensitive even. Now we need to sustain a dialogue. Director AG Rojas pictures a police-civilian brawl that lasts all day and all night; so long, in fact, that they forget why they're entangled. As if they, the police officer and the unarmed young black man, are just chemically opposed a predator and his prey. - Chris Hampton

RTJ2 is out now (duh) via Mass Appeal.

LIDS, "Sarsfest"

Brian Borcherdt is an all-around nice guy of the Toronto music scene, so he's not the first guy I would cast in a video that requires a man getting slapped in the face for nearly six minutes. But maybe Scott Cudmore has a grudge. Who knows? The team being LIDS, the supergroup of Borcherdt (Holy Fuck, Dusted), Doug MacGregor (Constantines) and Alex Edkins (METZ) Every slap is synched to a drumbeat, while changing colours, backgrounds, and Vanilla Ice cameos up the psych factor. You need this video lik...

Mar 27, 2015 10:29am | Fact Magazine

The Her Records producer takes his tools to Drippin’s 2014 banger.

Sudanim has unveiled an ultra-bouncy, windows-down remix of his Norwegian pal’s recent cut ‘Silver Cloak’, the title track of Drippin’s recent EP on Lit City Trax.

He’s roped in a massive crew to DJ on the night, with Sudanim and Drippin appearing alongside Rinse FM’s Sir Spyro and Newham General Footsie, ghostly grime producer Visionist, Her Records’ Miss Modular, vinyl devotee Riz La Teef and Sub Skank boss Akito, plus many more across two rooms.

Listen to rare recording of the Seven Dirty Words routine that got George Carlin arrested in 1972
Mar 27, 2015 10:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

Seven years after his death at age 71, comedian George Carlin is still making folks laugh. Today, his family is relaunching his website with previously unheard or rare recordings of the stand-up legend.

The first clips to be released come from Carlin’s infamous performance at Milwaukee Summerfest in 1972. Carlin closed his set with his “Seven Dirty Words” (aka “Filthy Words”) routine and was subsequently arrested for obscenity. The case was later dismissed, and ended up launching the comedian’s fame even higher.

The revamped site coincides with the hanging of Carlin’s portrait in the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian. Carlin’s only daughter, Kelly, is also finishing a memoir entitled A Carlin Home Companion, due out from St. Martins Press. SiriusXM will also be airing more Carlin material, beginning April 1st with his first HBO special, On Location: George Carlin at USC.

Check out the first two clips from the ’72 Summerfest show below. Carlin was not at his best, clearly stoned in front of a restless audience, but the importance of the show in the trajectory of Carlin’s career — and on the Supreme Court’s eventual ruling on the “Filthy Words” routine in 1978 — cannot be denied. Head to GeorgeCarlin.com for more of the relaunch.

Limp Bizkit Frontman Confirms He Is Not Robert Durst
Mar 27, 2015 10:13am | StereoGum
In one of the more amusing press mixups lately, the AP issued a correction last week stating that alleged murderer Robert Durst from HBO's true-crime documentary The Jinx was not, in fact, the frontman of Limp Bizkit. Apparently Fred Durst -- the actual frontman of Limp Bizkit -- has been hearing a lot about this. He posted the above photo to Instagram last night, a portrait of himself wearing a hoodie that makes it perfectly clear who Fred Durst isn't. The hoodie is not for sale (yet!).



Take One Car signed to Broken World for new LP (stream it)
Mar 27, 2015 9:59am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Upstate NY post-hardcore band Take One Car have been regulars on their local scene for years now. They self released two albums, 2009's When the Ceiling Meets the Floor and 2012's It's Going To Be a Nice Day, and more recently signed to TWIABP co-founder Derrick Shanholtzer's label, Broken World Media, who will release their third album, Everyone You Know Is Here Right Now, next week (3/31). You can pre-order yours.

The band's talk-singing style suggests they may have listened to a lot of early mewithoutYou and La Dispute, and like those bands, Take One Car are in dead-serious mode the whole time. You can listen for yourself -- the full album stream premieres below.

Take One Car have two shows coming up at the moment, a release party on April 18 in Kent, NY and the sold-out Broken World Fest.

H&M unveils Coachella-inspired clothing line
Mar 27, 2015 9:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this year, H&M announced  its very own Coachella-inspired clothing line. Because if there’s one thing more important than catching festival headliners Jack White, Drake, and AC/DC out in Indio, it’s making sure your BoHo-chic outfit is up to par (or as the kids say, “on fleek”).

This week, the Swedish retailer officially unveiled the lookbook for its “H&M Loves Coachella” collection, and it’s pretty much what you’d expect. Festival-going ladies can revel in fringes, lace, and flower patterns galore. For the men, there’s tie-dye and cacti designs, as well as long black t-shirts for when you really want to absorb that hot desert sun. While Coachella tickets can easily put a dent in your wallet, most of the pieces are pretty reasonably priced. (At least H&M isn’t trying to peddle fake indie rock bands.)

Below, check out some pics of the stylish threads and/or head here to purchase some for yourself.
