Neil Young makes an ear of corn explode, slams Trump and modern pop on The Late Show watch
May 27, 2016 9:29am | Cosequence Of Sound
Neil Young is hanging around New York City this weekend to promote his forthcoming live album with The Promise of the Real, EARTH. Hell be at The Museum of Modern Art this evening to host a playback of the album in PONO high-fidelity audio, but last night he stopped by the set of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk up the music player, slam modern pop, and take a few shots at Trump.
Incidentally, the folk rock icon happened to visit Colbert on the same day Donald Trump officially wrapped up enough delegates to clinch the GOP presidential nomination. Young, an outspoken Bernie Sanders supporter, has recently come under criticism for saying hes now OK with Trump using Rockin in the Free World as his campaign theme song. Well, in the pre-taped opening segment, he clarified that though Trump has a legal right to use the song, he’s still not thrilled about it. “I didn’t like that idea because of the misogyny and the racism,” he told Colbert.
Later on in the night, Young sat down as Colbert’s guest for a two-part interview. After professing his love for love and Colbert, he discussed the current political climate and why he’s so vocal despite not being able to vote as a Canadian citizen (“I’m a neighbor, and as such I’m affected by what happens, even though I live here”). In talking up EARTH, he quacked like a duck and beeped like a car h...

The Raveonettes Scout
May 27, 2016 9:12am | StereoGum
This year, rather than releasing an album in any sort of traditional way, Danish space-poppers the Raveonettes are dropping one new song every month, and they'll have an album's worth of new material by the time 2017 arrives. We've already heard a handfu...
Watch Win Butler & Régine Chassagnes Surprise DJ Performance At The Louvre
May 27, 2016 8:59am | StereoGum
Yesterday, the street artist JR opened a show at the Louvre, which, as I understand it, is a pretty famous museum in Paris. (Sadly, this JR is not JR Smith; I would absolutely pay for a transcontinental flight if that guy had a Louvre show.) And as part of the opening festivities, he brought … More »
Gordi Nothings As It Seems Video (Stereogum Premiere)
May 27, 2016 8:59am | StereoGum
We named Gordi an Artist To Watch on the strength of her stunning Clever Disguise EP. The young Australian singer-songwriter's winsome ballads course with complex currents of emotion, and they're lifted to new heights by rich electro-organic production. One great demonstration of that formula at work is EP opener "Nothing's As It Seems," which … More »
Outer Spaces made a video for "Born Enemy," streaming LP, on tour, playing NYC with Kino Kimino
May 27, 2016 8:56am | Brooklyn Vegan
Outer Spaces, the current band of Cara Beth Satalino (ex-Witches), release their debut album A Shedding Snake today on Don Giovanni. Like early EPs and singles hinted, it's poppy/punky/folky indie rock that fans of the Hop Along/Waxahatchee crowd or You Are Free-era Cat Power should probably give a spin...

May 27, 2016 8:43am | StereoGum
Last night, Radiohead, one of the most dependably mind-warping live acts in the universe, played a smaller show at the Roundhouse in London. And the band stopped their performance of "Nude" midway through so that he could (mostly nonverbally) make ...

The Avalanches launch hotline for fans to hear new music
May 27, 2016 8:36am | Fact Magazine
The Australian act are strongly rumoured to be releasing a new single soon.
The Avalanches continue to lay breadcrumbs for their expected comeback album, with a hotline number you can ring to hear what we’re assuming is new material.
As a Reddit user noticed on some posters spotted by journalist Matthew Horton around London, you can call +44 800 098 8938 for “preview screenings” of their recent teaser video. What you actually get is a loop of what’s believed to be new Avalanches music.
On putting the track through Shazam, it was recognised as an Avalanches track called ‘Subways’, which definitely isn’t on 2000’s Since I Left You.
The track first featured on a teaser video that emerged earlier this week called ‘Since They Left Us’, which featured interviews with artists strongly expected to appear on their next album including Danny Brown and Ariel Pink.
As Stereogum points out, another new track from the video has been recognised by Shazam as a track called ‘The Wizord Of Iz’ by an act called ...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens soundtrack vinyl etched with ridiculous 3D spacecraft holograms
May 27, 2016 8:28am | Cosequence Of Sound
The music in Star Wars: The Force Awakens might not measure up to John Williams greatest work, but the Force is undeniably strong with the vinyl soundtrack. Vinyl geeks and Star Wars nerds alike will be able to appreciate the soundtrack’s unique artwork, which features 3D holograms of a TIE fighter and the Millennium Falcon etched into the actual records.
Created by Tristan Duke — the same artist responsible for the floating angel artwork on Jack Whites Ultra Lazaretto vinyl — the holograms spin around as the record moves on the turntable, creating a hovering effect that’s well, its pretty goddamn cool, is what it is. At this rate, the soundtrack for Episode VIII will come in the form of an actual spaceship, so better start saving up those portions.
The double-LP Force Awakens vinyl will be released via Disney Music Emporium on June 17th, and its currently available to pre-order from Amazon for $47.99. Seems like a pretty fair ask for the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. Check out a photo of the vinyl below, and see the video above for an in-depth look into how it was made.
Watch A Loopy Neil Young Talk About PONO & GMOs On Colbert
May 27, 2016 8:22am | StereoGum
Earlier this week, crotchety old rock legend Neil Young turned heads when he said that he was totally OK with the idea of Donald Trump using his music at campaign rallies. That's pretty weird! And you'd think it would be the sort of thing that Stephen Colbert would bring up when he had Young … More »
