Charli XCX London Queen Lyric Video
Oct 21, 2014 8:45am | StereoGum

Charli XCX’s Ramones-inspired new single “London Queen” has been growing on me the more I listen to it. It’s certainly kitschy, but it’s also pretty damn catchy, even if the lyrics leave a lot to be desired compared to the goth-pop of something like “Nuclear Seasons,” which was Charli’s first major collaboration with producer and songwriter Justin Raisen. (He worked on some other songs from Charli’s first record, had a hand in “Boom Clap,” and co-produced Sky Ferreira’s debut alongside Ariel Rechtshaid.) The lyric video for “London Queen” is done in the colorful and bubbly animation style of basically every ’90s edutainment computer game. Watch below.


R.I.P. Orbital electronic duo announce breakup
Oct 21, 2014 8:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

British electronic duo Orbital have once again called it quits.

Co-founder Paul Hartnoll announced the group’s breakup Tuesday in a statement posted to their official website. “Weve had our ups and downs, and its not always been easy, but Ive loved my time with Orbital,” he wrote, before adding, “But nothing lasts forever and it’s time to stop.”

Comprised of Paul and his brother Phil, Orbital emerged out of London’s acid house scene in the late 1980s. The duo made a name for themselves thanks to their distinct knack for improvisation and roots in both electro and punk rock. They really hit their stride, however, with the back-to-back releases of their second and third LPs — 1993’s Orbital 2 and 1994’s Snivilisation — which featured several simultaneously charting singles and parlayed into soundtracking gigs for The Saint and Mortal Kombat, as well as a spot at Glastonbury.

Orbital initially broke up in 2004, but reunited in 2009 to headline The Big Chill Music Festival. They subsequently released what would be their final album, 2012’s Wonky, and performed at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony alongside Stephen Hawking.

In the same statement announcing Orbital’s disbandment, Paul Hartnoll also revealed the formation of a...

Orbital Break Up; Watch Paul Hartnolls 8:58 Video
Oct 21, 2014 8:28am | StereoGum

The British duo Orbital were one of the most important group’s of the early days of rave in the UK, and their 1989 single “Chime” was one of the anthems of its day. The group stayed busy throughout the ’90s and broke up in 2004, but they got back together in 2009 and released two more albums. But now, the brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll are once again calling it quits as Orbital. Paul, who has been composing music for movies and TV shows, is starting a solo project called 8:58, and his first track under that name, also called “8:58,” is a largely beatless piece of warm and sunny electronic music. Its new video, which has narration from the actor Cillian Murphy, is a piece of black-and-white expressionism about a couple who fantasize about leaving behind workaday drudgery and becoming, like, old-timey circus folk. Watch it below, and read some words from Paul Hartnoll.


Pearl Jam perform Yield front to back in Milwaukee watch

On Friday, Pearl Jam shocked fans attending their concert at Moline, Illinois by performing their fourth studio album, 1996’s No Code, in its entirety to kick off the set. According to Eddie Vedder, it marked only the second time in the band’s illustrious history that they had performed any one of their albums front to back in a live setting. Seems like the band enjoyed it as much as we did, because last night in Milwaukee, they gave a full performance of their fifth LP, 1998’s Yield.

Also of note was a cover of The Who’s “Baba O’Riley”, which featured a surprise appearance from Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen. It marked Nielsen’s second major gig in less than a week, as he also sat in with Foo Fighters for their Chicago club show on Friday night. Later, Vedder celebrated Tom Petty’s 64th birthday by covering “I Won’t Back Down”.

Watch fan-shot video from last night’s show along with the full 36-song (!) setlist below. Fans of 2000’s Binaural may want to grab tickets to PJ’s show in Denver tomorrow night — just sayin’.

Ringo Starr Is The New Face Of Skechers
Oct 21, 2014 8:19am | StereoGum

Ringo Starr is officially the new face of Skechers. According to a press release, the Beatles drummer “will be bringing his legendary talent and style” to the Skechers line of Relaxed Fit shoes. Star will join an esteemed group of endorsers that includes Britney Spears, Joe Namath, Pete Rose, and Mariano Rivera, all of whom have represented the Skechers brand in the past, which is mostly sold in shopping malls around the world. “We can’t wait for everyone to see how Ringo’s charm and cool charisma makes him the perfect ambassador for Relaxed Fit,” the statement says. His campaign begins in the spring, when he’ll appear in his first TV commercial for the shoe company. Hope the paycheck was worth it… (It probably was.)

Lorde recruits Kanye West, HAIM, Bat For Lashes for Hunger Games soundtrack
Oct 21, 2014 7:46am | Cosequence Of Sound

Lorde was charged with the curating the soundtrack to the forthcoming installment of The Hunger Games, and she did not disappoint. Due out November 17th, the OST to Mockingjay, Pt. 1 spans 14 tracks and promises contributions from Kanye West (which may explain why the he and Lorde were recently spotted in the studio together), as well as HAIM, Bat For Lashes, CHVRCHES, Charli XCX, Pusha T, Q-Tip, and Raury.

Already we’ve heard two tracks: Lorde’s original contribution, “Yellow Flicker Beat”, and a collaboration between The Chemical Brothers, Miguel, and Lorde called “This Is Not A Game”. Listen to the former below.

In a statement, Lorde said, “Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance. The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, The Hunger Games Mockingjay Pt. 1 hits theaters on November 21st.

Girlpool Plants And Worms Video
Oct 21, 2014 7:38am | StereoGum

“Plants And Worms” is one of the many standouts on Girlpool’s self-titled EP. According to a new interview with the band for Rookie, the song “is about how scary life can be and just feeling afraid to step out of your comfort zone, and then realizing thats how we grow.” That’s what artist Catleya Sherbow gets at in the sullenly-animated video for the track. It starts with one of those mornings when all you can do is pull the covers back over your head and go back to sleep and continues into a watercolor fantasy world haunted by an anxiety monster that our protagonist eventually fights with a pair of scissors. You can watch below.
