listen to a new song from Justin Vernon's Volcano Choir
Jun 17, 2013 3:58pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
As mentioned, Volcano Choir (aka Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and the members of Collections of Colonies of Bees) are releasing their sophomore album, Repave, on September 3 via Jagjaguwar. We heard a little clip of it in the album trailer, and now they've revealed the full song, titled "Byegone." From the sound of things, this is already shaping up to a stronger album than Volcano Choir's debut. Check out the new single below.
Volcano Choir will bring their tour to NYC on September 14 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still available.

This High School Senior Has the Most Gangster Yearbook Entry...
Jun 17, 2013 3:38pm | The Daily Swarm
We would like to officially award Jessica Lee from Garfield High School the award for “Best Yearbook Entry Ever.” To the untrained eye, listing periodic elements under one’s picture may seem like the surest way not to get invited to the cool after-prom parties, but let’s take a closer look, shall we?

See what she did there? Yes, that’s right; she took a page out of Biggie’s book to bid farewell.
Lil Wayne steps on U.S. flag during
Jun 17, 2013 3:28pm | Cosequence Of Sound
As the self-professed greatest rapper in the world, Lil Wayne’s no stranger to controversy. Late last year, the Young Money honcho made headlines by threatening a lawyer during a deposition. Then, just recently, there was the whole non-apology to the Emmett Till estate over unsavory lyrics. Now, Weezy finds himself in more hot water as footage has surfaced in which he appears to walk all over an American flag.
The footage is taken from the set of Wayne’s video for “God Bless Amerika”, off his album I Am Not A Human Being II. A large U.S. flag drops down behind Wayne, at which point he performs on top of it.
It’s worth noting that “God Bless Amerika” has a number of different interpretations. Conceptually, it’s either 1) a meditation of America’s aggressive nature and military mindedness, or 2) a sweeping look at how mankind creeps closer to outright godlessness and moral decay.
Light Asylum, Young Magic, Psychic Twin, O Paradiso, Adventure @ Cameo Gallery, Brooklyn 6/16/13
Jun 17, 2013 3:27pm | StereoGum
It was clear things would be ending better than they began when I showed up in Williamsburg for the last day of Northside Festival. Everyone seemed to be in good spirits thanks to a false weather forecast — we showed up on Sunday expecting more rain and got surprised with a pretty nice day. Not that it mattered once you got to the dark, dingy Cameo Gallery for a showcase culminating with Light Asylum‘s stunning performance. If you haven’t been to the Cameo Gallery it deserves a little bit of explanation. Walking in makes you feel like a character in Goodfellas as you move to the back of a crowded bar, go down a hallway past the kitchen and finally find an unmarked white door splotched in paint. Go through and you’re in another world. A small intimate space that’s dimly lit at best

Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines': Catchy Summer Anthem or Misogynous Manifesto?
Jun 17, 2013 3:19pm | The Daily Swarm
Robin Thicke’s Pharell-featuring song “Blurred Lines” is quickly becoming a contender for anthem of the summer, but the combination of the NSFW video (three naked models parading around the fully-clothed Thicke and Pharell) and morally ambiguous lyrics have some women really pissed off.

Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Red Bull Sound Select is an ongoing series of monthly $3 shows in multiple cities around the country. Each show has a headliner and three local openers chosen by a curator. BrooklynVegan is one of the curators in NYC -- maybe you came to our Foxygen show at Knitting Factory. Stay tuned for our next show which is happening in September.
The series is already bringing big shows for a small price but in July they're going even bigger and even cheaper with 10 really big free shows in 10 cities all happening over the same weekend (7/26 & 7/27) including NYC at Irving Plaza on July 27 with The Gaslight Anthem, Dave Hause (of The Loved Ones), The Scandals, and Frances & the Foundation. Head to their page and click on the show of your choice to "request a ticket." Good luck.
That NYC date comes right inbetween The Gaslight Anthem's two big outdoor shows at Hudson River Park's Pier 26. The first of those shows is being opened by the Bouncing Souls (7/26), and the second by The Hold Steady (7/28). Tickets to both shows are still available.
Meanwhile. look for the continuing series of RBSS shows each month in NYC, Austin, Chicago, LA and Nashville, with more cities coming soon. NYC's next one is curated ...
Speedy Ortiz, Pile, Two Inch Astronaut, Grass Is Green & more played the Exploding In Sound showcase at Big Snow

Speedy Ortiz at Big Snow - 6/15/13 (via BrooklynVegan
After catching Chance the Rapper at Europa on Saturday (6/15), I finished my day 3 of Northside Festival at Big Snow for the Exploding In Sound showcase. The place had already hit capacity by around 9 PM (not an everyday feat for Big Snow), and every band I saw was pretty great. The similarly styled stop-start post-hardcore of Grass Is Green and Two Inch Astronaut (who were playing much of the material from their new album, Bad Brother, out this week) was totally on point. Not only do both bands have the chops for their sometimes-technical sounds, but they've got a ton of power on stage too.
One of the main attractions of the night was Speedy Ortiz, whose debut album, Major Arcana comes out on July 9 via their new label home, Carpark Records. Speedy's a great band recorded, but they bring even more rage live. Singer Sadie Dupuis screams more, their guitars ring with layers of distortion, and guitarist Matt Robidoux ended up crowd surfing at least once. They have a great time on stage too. Performance stuff aside, one of the most memorable moments of the show was the drummer singing "Started From the Bottom" and then dedicating their next song to Yeezus.
And though Speedy was t...

Premature Evaluation: Kanye West: Yeezus
Jun 17, 2013 2:44pm | StereoGum
Just over a minute into Yeezus, Kayne West is riding the malfunctioning-star-destroyer glitch-screams of “On Sight” when he poses a rhetorical question: “How much do I not give a fuck? Let me show you right now, ‘fore you give it up.” He repeats the question, as the screaming robots underneath him disappear into empty black space. Then, welling up like a chorus of angels, we hear a classic-level Kanye soul sample, one of those things that once made his music sound so life-affirming. It’s actually a gospel sample, a full choir pleading that “He’ll give us all we need,” their voices just slightly decayed, like they’re coming through an old speaker. And then that choir disappears just as abruptly, the robot roar returning, the laser-sounds pretty soon working like they’re fighting each other, like they’re pushing themselves so hard that they’re falling apart, while Kanye barks about dicks in mouths. He’s dangling his beloved old self before us, then snatching it back. A few songs later, as “New Slaves” — the defiant blast of wrath that weaponizes the so-self-conscious ambivalent consumerism that Kanye was doing way back on “All Falls Down” — is fading out, soul-sample Kanye comes back, cooing that he can’t lose in Auto-tune over celestial strings while Frank Ocean answers him back. That’s where the old Kanye becomes triumphant. He’...
NSFW: Is Bob Dylan Painting Nude Women In Central Park?

Artist Richard Prince – known for pissing off copyright scholars with his questionable appropriation – recently set up in NYC’s Central Park for an afternoon of reading and nudity. He was also joined by Bob Dylan (they’re friends), who was seen painting in the background. Eventually the painting found its way online. The whole thing was confirmed by a source to Marina Galperina of Animal New York:
