FACT at SXSW 2015 Kilbourne on the importance of engaging with mainstream pop
Mar 26, 2015 11:24am | Fact Magazine

This year, FACT TV’s Bryan McKay, Chris Kelly and John Twells packed up and headed to Austin, Texas for South By Southwest 2015 and talked to some of the festival’s most exciting artists.

New Orleans-based club producer Kilbourne is indicative of a new wave of genre-mashing beatmakers who pay little regard to the stuffy, grey technoid sounds of Europe. We spoke to her about her wide range of influences and more.

Rihanna unveils new single Bitch Better Have My Money listen
Mar 26, 2015 11:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Rihanna returns with her latest single. Entitled “Bitch Better Have My Money”, the track follows the Kanye and Paul McCartney collaboration “FourFiveSeconds”, along with “Towards the Sun” and “As Real As You and Me”, which appear on the soundtrack to Rihanna’s new animated film Home. Presumably, “Bitch Better Have My Money” serves as the latest taste of her forthcoming eighth studio album. Listen below.

The as-yet-untitled LP, which serves as the follow-up to 2012’s Unapologetic, is due out later this year. In support, Rihanna will reportedly head out onto the road with Kanye West.



Carly Rae Jepsen, Mumford & Sons Booked For SNL Next Month
Mar 26, 2015 11:12am | StereoGum
Saturday Night Live just announced the details of a couple of next month’s shows. On the 4/4 episode, Michael Keaton will return to host for the third time, and Canadian crystalline-pop queen Carly Rae Jepsen will be the musical guest. That should be a fun show! Possibility of a Tom Hanks cameo seems high! Meanwhile, […]

Rihanna Bitch Better Have My Money
Mar 26, 2015 11:10am | StereoGum
Rihanna’s followed up “FourFiveSeconds” with the second single from her upcoming eighth studio album. It’s called “Bitch Better Have My Money,” a reference to the 1991 AMG album (and song) of the same name. On first listen, it sounds like a pretty decent bop from an artist that’s brought us 11 #1 hit singles. The […]



Q&A: Royal Thunders Mlny Parsonz On The Crushing New Crooked Doors + Hear One Day (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 26, 2015 11:10am | StereoGum
“I will come back here one day, my love,” sings Mlny Parsonz, bassist and vocalist of Atlanta’s Royal Thunder, on the band’s new “One Day.” I’m not sure I believe her. This is the kind of ballad that is trying to break your heart — along with the rest of you — and Royal Thunder […]



Captured Tracks Is Releasing An Album From Ben Stillers Forgotten 80s Punk Band
Mar 26, 2015 10:57am | StereoGum
When Ben Stiller was a teenager, he played drums in a quirked-out punk band called Capital Punishment. The trio released one album, 1982’s Roadkill, a piece of music that freely employs both fake British accents and Captain Beefheart scraggle-growls. The album’s songs found their way to YouTube, and last year, word got around that Stiller […]

30 Essential Max Martin Songs
Mar 26, 2015 10:51am | StereoGum
The thought came to me in a drug store. Or a department store. Or the backseat of a taxicab. I don’t remember where it was, exactly, except that it was the type of place where, in 2015, one might hear Taio Cruz’s 2010 hit “Dynamite” playing in the periphery. That is to say: anywhere in […]

Mar 26, 2015 10:50am | StereoGum
California hardcore band Ceremony have announced their fifth album, The L-Shaped Man, and shared two-part video by director Ross Thomas. “The Separation” + “The Understanding” isn’t just split in its title; at about the 3:30 mark “The Separation” ends and “The Understanding” begins.

Villagers played two NYC shows (pics & setlist from Union Pool with Zachary Cale)

Villagers @ Union Pool - 3/25/15

Villagers (aka folk singer Conor O'Brien) has a new home-recorded album on the way, which (from what we've heard of it) is sounding like his barest material yet. He came to NYC this week to open Laura Marling's post-SXSW show at Warsaw on Monday (3/23) and then to play his own smaller show at Union Pool last night (3/25). Last night's show was about half new stuff, and half older ones. He was also accompanied by a harpist (who also played some keys and did some background vocals), and the two of them sounded lovely together.

Zachary Cale opened the show. More pictures (including one of Villagers' setlist) below...

Brian Wilson Reveals Why Frank Ocean & Lana Del Rey Are Not On His New Album
Mar 26, 2015 10:36am | StereoGum
Last year, it was rumored that Brian Wilson would be collaborating with Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey on some new tracks for his brand new album, which is due out in April. But when the tracklist surfaced in January, they were nowhere to be found. A rep told Pitchfork at the time that both […]



Built To Spill Living Zoo Video
Mar 26, 2015 10:35am | StereoGum
About a month ago Built To Spill announced their first album in six years, Untethered Moon, and shared lead single “Living Zoo.” Today, they’ve premiered a video for the song directed by Jordan Minkoff, and it’s a campy, tongue-in-cheek riff on a much-anticipated big trip. In a very “Bill & Ted” fashion, the two guys […]
