OK Computer was born a legend. Thom, Phil, Jonny, Ed, and Colin wrote an album that stood in the face of the classic rock that came before it and led the charge to all of the 21st century music that would come after it. It was born timeless, rooted in Brit-rock of the ’90s, but actually trying to climb on top of the cresting wave of technology. It would eventually topple all over Radiohead, and all of the mobiles quirking and chirping would inspire their 2000 album Kid A.
But in 1997, these 12 songs came unadulterated into the world, sad and lonely, angry and political, and, of course, paranoid. The guitars shimmered, Thom’s voice soared, and a Macintosh Text-to-Speak program got to sing lead vocals on “Fitter Happier”. Nothing sounded like it then, and nothing sounds like it now — 16 years later. Happy Birthday, OK Computer.

Listen: Giorgio Moroder's First DJ Set. Ever...
May 21, 2013 8:26pm | The Daily Swarm
Oh, how our little Girogio has grown. Famed producer and Daft Punk collaborator Giorgio Moroder can now add DJ to his long title. Last week, Moroder confessed that he took up DJ-ing and now has a booking agent. He’s even working with Aviici, which strikes us as odd; at the same time, pretty hip for the venerable Moroder.

Weighing the Pros and Cons of Google Play Music All Access...
May 21, 2013 7:31pm | The Daily Swarm
Everyone is trying to figure out why Google Play Music All Access is such a threat to Spotify. Hell, we’re still trying to figure it out, but this breakdown from Eliot Van Buskirk on Hypebot is sure helping. He lists the pros and cons for all of us in layman’s terms.
Hip-Hop's Latest Beef? Em's Publisher and Dr. Dre Vs. Facebook and Ad Agency...
May 21, 2013 7:21pm | The Daily Swarm
Now, here’s a weird one: Eminem’s publisher – Eight Mile Style LLC – is suing Facebook and an ad agency for using his song without permission; the ad agency is firing back, saying that the song’s production is incorrectly credited to Dr. Dre. We’re not sure how that makes sense; but let’s investigate, shall we?
According to the lawsuit, Facebook ran an advertisement by Portland, Oregon ad company Wieden + Kennedy entitled

Believe it or not, but last night disco legend Giorgio Moroder performed his first-ever DJ set. The hour-long performance, which took place at the Williamsburg, Brooklyn club Output as part of the Red Bull Music Academy, featured fully re-arranged versions and remixes of material from his own catalog, including his recent collaboration with Daft Punk,

The grandfather of modern dance music dazzles a Brooklyn audience in this 75-minute set.
On Monday night, Giorgio Moroder played what was billed as his first-ever DJ set at Brooklyn’s Output, as part of Red Bull Music Academy’s New York takeover. After a vocodered intro, Moroder launches into a retrospective set of career highlights (Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’, ‘Bad Girls’, ‘On the Radio’, and ‘Hot Stuff’), as well as Random Access Memories standout ‘Giorgio by Moroder’.
Listen to the set over on RBMA Radio. Last week, Moroder revealed that he had taken up DJing (he even has a booking agent for it) and that he is collaborating with Avicii. For all things Moroder, check out FACT mixer Mr. Beatnick’s Essential feature.

Trevor Bolder, the bassist in David Bowie’s Spiders From Mars and Uriah Heep has lost his battle with cancer. He was 62. Bolder joined Bowie’s backing band in 1971 along with Mick Ronson drummer Woody Woodmansey. He contributed his skills to albums such as Hunky Dory, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, Aladdin Sane and Pin Ups. He later joined Uriah Heep in 1976.

"So great that I made it for The National's concert. Really small venue and great vibe. Highlight of the day. #NationalTrouble" - Alejandro Masferrer
"brah I'm just so fuckin hyped to watch the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY BEE!!!" - Nic
It was a flurry of activity for Brooklyn indie stalwarts The National today. Not only did they release their great and critically-acclaimed new album, Trouble Will Find Me, but they also announced, this morning, that they'd be celebrating it with three tiny NYC club shows in one day, today. Around noon they played a free show at super-tiny Sycamore in Ditmas park. They then packed up their gear and headed to Williamsburg to play the also-very-small back room at Public Assembly (which, like the front room, will soon be closed for renovations). Pictures from Sycamore and Public Assembly, which just finished, are in this post, PA setlist included. If you got in, what time did you get there and did you wait in line?
The band, who kicked off their tour the other day in Ithaca and were on Letterman last night, will play again at Mercury Lounge tonight at 10 PM. (How many of you were able to get tickets?) Clearly these guys don't have a problem with long days. As mentioned, for those who couldn't make it to any of their release celebr...
Sucks Being the New Guy: The Five Best and Worst Replacement Singers...
May 21, 2013 6:02pm | The Daily Swarm
As the saying goes, “you’ve got some big shoes to fill,” or whatever it is. Never has that been more true than in the music business. Replacement singers are a gamble; you either ascent to the heavens of popularity or sink down into irrelevancy. Sometimes a new singer can be refreshing for a stale, old rock band; sometimes it alienates fans who can’t get over the original line-up. Consequence of Sound compiled the best and worst replacement singers ever.

Before his meme-worthy, high-flying performance at the Billboard Music Awards, the Grammy winner set a timetable for his next releases.
First announced last month, Miguel has planned another series of Art Dealer Chic EPs. The initial triptych hinted at what would come on Kaleidoscope Dream, and like that series, the new three EP series will be freely available online.

Listen to Goodie Mob
May 21, 2013 5:44pm | Fact Magazine
The Dungeon Family crew reveal the lead single from their first album since 2004.
Described by Cee Lo as “Public Enemy on acid,” Goodie Mob’s Age Against the Machine is due out on August 27. Judging by lead single ‘Special Education’, it may be more accurately described as “Public Enemy on Skrillex.” Each member gets a chance to shine over a wobbly, glitched-out beat, with guest vocalist Janelle Monae singing the (somewhat incongruous) chorus.
Listen to ‘Special Education’ below. Cee Lo recently announced plans to document Goodie Mob’s reunion in a TBS reality show.
Kisses released 'Kids in LA' (stream it), add tour dates
May 21, 2013 5:19pm | Brooklyn Vegan

As mentioned, Kisses (Jesse Kivel of Princeton and Zinzi Edmundson) just released their second album, Kids in LA, via the Cascine label. Mining '80s synthpop sounds, the duo have a strong sense of songcraft and the record (produced by Saint Etienne's Pete Wiggs) makes for great light summer listening. You can stream the whole thing below.
Kivel also features on "Borderline" from the new Classixx album (they play LPR next month) and you can stream that track below too.
You can catch Kisses and a few of their labelmates (including Selebrities, Rush Midnight and Chad Valley) at the Cascine/New Town Radio Northside Festival Showcase on June 13 at Cameo. Tickets are still available.
If you can't make that show, Kisses will be back in NYC a month or so after to play Mercury Lounge on July 19. Tickets to that show go on on AmEx presale on Wednesday (5/22) at 10 AM with the regular on-sale happening Friday (5/24) at noon. Kisses have a few other East Coast dates as well which are listed below.
