Thurston Moore - The Best Day
Oct 23, 2014 1:29am | Drowned In Sound
Try as you might, you wont find much in the way of pained post-divorce angst in Thurston Moores latest solo album, though that hasnt stopped people obsessively looking for it. Moore, having swapped New Yorks grimy sidewalks for the artisan-coffee-and-craft-ale paradise of Stoke Newington in north London (essentially swapping the Big Apple for the Organic Pear), and having got his art-rock noise out the way on last year's Chelsea Light Moving album, has returned to business as usual for The Best Day, only his fourth full solo record in a 30+ year career.
Much DNA is shared with the more grown-up, muso-y, shoegazy end of Sonic Youths output, to the point long-time collaborator Steve Shelley has been flown in especially to thump the tubs behind it all. Hes completed the line-up with shoegaze royalty as well: theres My Bloody Valentines Debbie Googe screwing in her over-used ear plugs to perform bass duties, while weirdo-British-alt-rock legend James Sedward is sparring with Moore on guitar. The quartet are clearly having a ball playing together too you can tell because most of the songs go on for about a million years.
Its not just the length thats the giveaway though. The Best Day is a shiny record, with an exuberant freshness across the whole thing; it practically sparkles. It comes off as understated, unshowy stuff that revels in establishing satisfying grooves and running with them and it feels extremely comfortable: ...
Ultimate Painting - Ultimate Painting
Oct 23, 2014 1:28am | Drowned In Sound
Veronica Falls and Mazes. Mazes and Veronica Falls. For those of us whose knowledge of these two acts extended little further than listening to and enjoying their music, this collaborative record between Jack Cooper and James Hoare, under the moniker Ultimate Painting, will be a surprise a pleasant one at that. The melding of their two distinctive styles is equally pleasant; so is the entirely analogue production, the good ol fashioned DIY split cassette spirit and the album art. Unexpected or not, this is a welcome collaboration.
Recalling post-John Cale Velvets, mid-period Beatles and many other bands of the Sixties era from that period before things turned more in favour of heavy psych and hard rock, Ultimate Painting is a record that not only bears witness to a duo that understand each other extremely well, but one that brings about further realisation in the listener as to how memorable each of the members are within their own acts.
You can hear Jack Coopers fizzy guitar lines and playful vocals and instantly recognise them as the prime mover of Mazes krautrock-indebted psychedelics; likewise James Hoares hypnotised, low voice and introspective lyrics work as well here as they do as in the infectious goth-C86 of Veronica Falls. Together the band work wonders: Ultimate Painting is a seamless collaborative effort that, while by no means groundbreaking, is a notable success.

iLoveMakonnen Assaulted Onstage At CMJ
Oct 22, 2014 8:30pm | StereoGum
Last night during a CMJ performance at SOBs, iLoveMakonnen was assaulted while performing “Club Going Up On A Tuesday.” Judging from a video of the incident that Makonnen tweeted out earlier today, a man in the front row reached out to the rapper and then grabbed his hand and dragged him down, punching him multiple times. The fight was quickly broken up by someone that was on stage who jumped down after the attacker and cleared the floor.
Tobias Jesso Jr. Preps Debut Goon With Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Carney, Chet JR White
Oct 22, 2014 8:07pm | StereoGum
Singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. has captivated us since “True Love” earlier this year and it seems like we’re not alone. In a new interview with Pitchfork, he details some big-name collaborators that he’s working with for his debut album, Goon, which is due out next year. In addition to former Girls bassist Chet “JR” White (who produced “True Love”), the album will feature production from Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Carney, and the New Pornographers’ John Collins. That’s a pretty interesting team, and it looks like Jesso will be putting out one of the most anticipated debuts of next year. Read the full interview here.
Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer leaks, causes worldwide nerdgasm watch
Oct 22, 2014 7:48pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Less than 24 hours after Marvel announced that they’d be premiering the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron following next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the whole thing has leaked online. Let the nerdgasms commence.
Our first taste of Joss Whedon’s superhero team sequel presents a much darker tone than its predecessor. Over a creepy rendition of “I’ve Got No String” from Pinocchio, we see images of Captain America’s shield shattered, Thor’s hammer dropping, and a very defeated looking Tony Stark. We also get a first look at newcomers Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch in action (outsider of the Winter Solider stinger, that is), as well as a spine-chilling introduction to James Spader’s villainous Ultron. Oh, and there’s a freakin’ Hulk-Buster armor. Watch below (via MovieWeb).
Avengers: Age of Ultron hits US theaters May 1st. (It’s worth noting that the trailer clearly says “This April,” meaning there’s a good chance this is an international version and the trailer coming with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could be different). Whedon returns to direct the talents of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smuld...
Watch 2 Chainz try out the most expensive toothbrush in the world
Oct 22, 2014 6:49pm | Fact Magazine
2 Chainz has tested out the world’s most expensive toothbrush in the latest instalment of GQ’s ‘Most Expensivest Shit’ series. The rapper tested the German-made Reinast luxury toothbrush which retails for a cool 3200. The toothbrush is made from solid titanium and features a patented anti-bacterial coating.
The video also contains some useful advice on the correct way to floss. 2 Chainz’ dental advisor demonstrates that you’re supposed to do it before you brush and that flossing is much more effective when you wrap the floss around your middle fingers as opposed to your index fingers, just in case you were wondering.
