PS I Love You working on new stuff, playing NYC in January
Dec 10, 2013 4:50pm | Brooklyn Vegan
PS I Love You at Mercury Lounge in 2011 (more by Chris La
Canadian indie rock duo PS I Love You has been relatively quiet as of late, having last played NYC in November of 2012. But it looks like they've got something up their sleeves, because they'll be coming to NYC to play a one-off at Pianos on January 29, and they're promising new songs. Hopefully that means a new album is on the way. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Johnny Cashs lost album Out Among the Stars to be released
Dec 10, 2013 4:48pm | Cosequence Of Sound
By the early 1980s, Johnny Cash had reached a career precipice: after years of success in country music, the Man in Black was struggling with personal issues and an uncertain creative direction. To help jump start his career, Columbia Records sent Cash to work with Nashville icon Billy Sherrill, a producer noted for the pop-influenced “countrypolitan” sound. While the resulting album, entitled Out Among the Stars, was shelved when Cash and Columbia parted ways in 1985, it’s since been unearthed from the archives and will be released on March 25th through Columbia/Legacy.
Material from the 12-track album was recorded at Nashville’s Columbia Studios in 1981 and Los Angeles’ 1111 Sound Studios in 1984. Along with Cash-penned tracks like “Call Your Mother” and “I Came To Believe”, the record features duets with his wife June Carter Cash and friend/collaborator Waylon Jennings.
In an interview with Billboard, Cash’s son John Carter Cash said he found the tapes early last year in a stash of belongings from his parents’ home. “They never threw anything away,” he said. “They kept everything in their lives. They had an archive that had everything in it from the original audio tapes from The Johnny Cash Show to random things like a camel saddle, a gift from the prince of Saudi Arabia.”
Restoration of the tapes were handled by John Carter...
Blood Orange playing Webster Hall in February
Dec 10, 2013 4:45pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Dev, Dev and little friend outside Bedford Ave L stop
Blood Orange's new album, Cupid Deluxe, is definitely getting a lot more attention than his first, with widespread acclaim and appearances on year-end lists. Maybe it's the increased ad budget (see above).
The week of its release, he celebrated with an uber-packed,
guest-filled show at 285 Kent that was also the debut of his new
full live band. (Sound/feedback issues aside, they were really good
at 285.) While he hasn't made any full tour plans, Dev has
announced his next NYC show which happens February 6 at
Webster Hall. Is that close enough to be considered a
Cupid Deluxe Valentine's Day show? Tickets go on
sale Friday (12/13) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday
(12/11) at noon.

Cults High Road (Baio Remix)
Dec 10, 2013 4:35pm | StereoGum
When he isn’t busy playing bass with Vampire Weekend, Chris Baio makes catchy dance tracks — his latest EP, Mira, was released in October. Baio is a master of good vibes, so naturally, he remixed the chronically sad-but-sunny Cults track “High Road” off of their sophomore album Static. Baio gives Madeline Follin space to stretch out her saccharine voice amidst a blown-out drumbeat and a disco keyboard progression that almost sounds out of place until the Brian Oblivion’s hushed harmony carries the track into a slow build-up. There’s a murky subtext that bottom-feeds on the vast majority of Cults’ tracks, but Baio makes “High Road” sound almost weightless. Listen below.
Watch ScHoolboy Q On The Pete Holmes Show
Dec 10, 2013 4:32pm | StereoGum
Pele Holmes is a popular comedian and podcaster who hosts the new-ish nightly talk show after Conan on TBS. Most of Holmes guests so far have been comedians, but last night he had a chat with Black Hippy member ScHoolboy Q, who admitted he does not get on TV much. That’s probably why this interview was so endearingly awkward. Holmes learns that Q lies about his shoe size and suffers from acid reflex, and asks whether white people should stop rapping along at his concerts when the lyrics contain the N-word. Watch below.

Eagulls releasing new single this month, ready debut for March, playing NYC in January (dates & streams)

Eagulls @ CMJ 2013 (more by Amanda
Leeds postpunk quintet Eagulls will release their self-titled debut album on March 4. Prior to that, the band will have out new double a-side single "Tough Luck / Opaque" on December 16. "Tough Luck" shows a little more nuance, arrangement-wise, than the full-bore rippers the band have released so far, and you can stream it below. Both sides will feature on their debut -- album art and tracklist are below.
Eagulls, who were one of the most talked about bands at CMJ this year, will be coming over for press for the album next month and are making time for a couple NYC shows while here. They'll play Mercury Lounge on January 29 and Rough Trade on January 31. Tickets for both those shows go on sale Friday (12/13) at noon, and there's an AmEx presale for the Merc show starting Wednesday (12/11) at noon. Those are the only dates for now, though a tour once the album comes out seems likely.
Speaking of CMJ, NYC taper just posted the full set from Eagulls' Glasslands show during the fest. You can download the whole thing at NYC Taper and stream one track from that below.

Zula Twin Loss Video
Dec 10, 2013 3:52pm | StereoGum
Back in August we premiered Zula’s “Twin Loss,” an understated yet emotive digi-fried rock song whose Thom Yorke influence Noisey wisely points out. It’s about the trauma of losing a twin sibling at birth, with Nate Terepka’s words set to music that sounds more like lingering melancholy than overwhelming grief. The band’s self-directed video only amplifies that feeling. It’s well worth a viewing or two, so do that below.
R. Kelly Cookie Video
Dec 10, 2013 3:43pm | StereoGum
We just anointed R. Kelly’s Black Panties as Album Of The Week, and one of the best reasons to check it out is “Cookie,” an absolute monster of an R&B song that compares cunnilingus to sumptuously licking the cream out of an Oreo. Now that song has a hyper-misogynist video in which Kellz inhabits a mansion staffed by scantily clad ladies who do his bidding. Really takes the charm out of an otherwise first-rate sex romp! Anyway, watch below.
Download Flying Lotus Ideas+drafts+loops Featuring Black Skinhead Remix
Dec 10, 2013 3:37pm | StereoGum
Looks like Christmas is coming a little early for fans of electronic music. Flying Lotus just took to Twitter to release a zip stuffed with, as he puts it, “Ideas+drafts+loops.” The best surprise you’ll find is a remix of Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” (download that below) featuring his long time collaborator and bass guitar virtuoso Thundercat, but that’s only the beginning. There are collaborative tracks with Shabazz Palaces, Baths, and the Underachievers (who had one of our Mixtapes Of The Week). Fly Lo is putting the finishing touches on his new album, due next year, and if this is what the sort of stuff that gets scrapped it’s pretty hard not to get excited for the release.

The track is taken from current album 'Black Panties', which was released last Friday (December 6)

Dec 10, 2013 3:24pm | Chart Attack
Flying Lotus, who's finishing up a new album right now, just uploaded a .zip file called Ideas+drafts+loops to Mediafire. It's taking a long time to download, probably because all of you are doing it right now. But the producer promises it contains tracks with Shabazzz Palaces, Thundercat, DJ Mehdi [RIP], Baths, Niki Randa, Andreya Triana, Viktor Vaughn, Earl Sweatshirt, Mapei and Yeezus...[as well as] The Underachievers and Captain Murphy. Phew. Here's the producer on what the collection sounds like:
Here's some of that old stuff to tide us over while we wait for our downloads to finish.
