At Stereogum’s Range Life party during SXSW way back in March, Kitty, the self-proclaimed rap game Taylor Swift, shared her stage with the partied-out Das Racist associate Lakutis, and it was a for-real sweet moment. Together, they performed “Ay Shawty,” a track from Kitty’s D.A.I.S.Y. Rage EP. (Like “Barbie Jeep,” the Adult Swim single that Kitty released yesterday, “Ay Shawty 3.0″ is a Hot Sugar production.) And now there’s a video for “Ay Shawty 3.0,” and it’s sweet, too, all slow dissolves and sunstruck cinematography. Peter Wu directed the video, and you can watch it below.

We’re quite familiar with Star Slinger’s propensity for cracking songs at their center and re-imagining them into glittering dance jams. Here, he’s flipped Miguel’s yearning “Adorn” into a kinetic, house-imbued cut but still kept its romance in tact. Check it out below.

Sub Pop grunge-core throwbacks Metz are still punishing ears and bodies behind their noisy and wonderful self-titled debut record. The hardcore squonk of album highlight “Get Off” now comes packaged an animated video produced and directed by labelmate Chad Van Gaalen. If you want to learn about “The Origins of Smahmpy: The Flying Retriever” via some Robert Crumb meets Metalocaplypse animation, the strange tale below is just for you (via Stereogum).
The Canadians will head out on yet another tour this summer and fall, full of festivals and European dates. Check those dates below.

Guards @ Brooklyn Bowl: June 18, 2013

Guards – Photo by Eric Gossett
Garage-gaze trio Guards performed to a packed-house at Brooklyn Bowl Tuesday night as part of the Local X Local showcase in Williamsburg. The event celebrates local beer, art, food and of course, music. This was Guards’ first time playing in New York since December of last year. Sadly, this would also turn out to be the last time the band would play together (sort of).
At first glance, some might mistake Guards for the long-haired indie-pop group Cults. That’s probably because a few of them are actually former band members of the New York band: Drummer Loren “Ted” Humphrey and lead singer Richie Follin, who is also the older brother of Cults frontwoman Madeline Follin. Richie and Loren parted with the band in 2010 and began playing shows as the newly formed Guards. The visual aspect is about the only thing the two groups have in common. With Guards, Richie has taken his sound in a more rock-driven direction, as opposed to the dream-pop stylings of Cults. The band released their debut album In Guards We Trust earlier this year via Black Bell Records and have been touring heavily over the last few months, playing music festivals like Coachella and Primavera.
Although In Guards We Trust is a high-powered album full of intensity, it hardly reflects the driving energy of Guards’ live shows. Follin’s animated performance sustained the e...

Deniro Farrar @ NXNE 2013
North Carolina rapper Deniro Farrar had a bit of breakout moment last year with Kill or Be Killed, his collaborative mixtape with Shady Blaze, and this year he caught ears with his solo mixtape, The Patriarch, which came out this past March. He's got ties to the cloud rap scene (he works with Ryan Hemsworth, Main Attrakionz, Keyboard Kid, etc), but similarly to what A$AP Rocky did on this year's Long. Live. A$AP, Deniro expands on the sound and at the rate that he's producing interesting material, he isn't fated to be pigeonholed with it. Deniro's already got the followup to The Patriarch, titled The Patriarch II, out now. You can stream the entire thing below, and it's available to download for $1 at bandcamp.
Deniro Farrar just played a big free rap show in Toronto's
Yonge-Dundas Square for NXNE, which also included Ludacris,
Joey Bada$$, The Underachievers, Fat Tony, and more. A full set of
pictures from that show is

Jun 19, 2013 10:59am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Brooklyn's Ski Lodge have finally announced details of their debut album, Big Heart, which will be out August 20 via Dovecoat. That's the cover art above. The record was made in Los Angeles with producer Louis Pescov (of Fool's Gold), who produced Best Coast's debut. The LP's first single is ultra-catchy "Boy," which owes more than a little to The Smith's "Ask," and you may have seen them play in our BV Sessions video. You can stream the studio version below.
Ski Lodge have a few local dates coming up: Saturday (6/22) at Cameo with Superhumanoids and Bowmont (tickets); June 26 at 285 Kent with The Denzels, Haybaby and TOONS (tickets); and the Ace Hotel on July 14.
That Cameo show initially included Vancouver's Gold & Youth, but they've unfortunately dropped off the show.
All dates are listed, along with the single stream, below.

James Murphy writing new music for Broadway production starring Daniel Craig
Jun 19, 2013 10:55am | Cosequence Of Sound
James Murphy remains busy. When not designing an actual soundsystem or aiding Arcade Fire with their new studio album, the former LCD Soundsystem frontman is writing music for a new Broadway production.
But wait, it gets even better. As Vulture reports, said Brodway production, an adaption of Harold Pinter’s 1978 play Betrayal, stars Mr. James Bond himself, Daniel Craig. Maybe, if things go well, Murphy can write the new James Bond theme song. Please?
The production, also staring Rachel Weisz (Oz the Great and Powerful, The Bourne Legacy), is set to premiere in October.
Oneohtrix Point Never R Plus Seven Details
Jun 19, 2013 10:51am | StereoGum
Ever since releasing his queasy 2011 album Replica, the synth-drone experimenter Daniel Lopatin, the man behind Oneohtrix Point Never, has stayed busy. He’s recorded an improvised album with Tim Hecker, he’s played in Ducktails, he’s contributed music to Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring. And now he’s getting back to the business of releasing OPN music. Lopatin’s new album R Plus Seven is coming this fall on new label Warp, and a press release claims that it “comes as close as Lopatin has ever gotten to anything resembling traditional song structure.” Check out the album’s tracklist below.

Jun 19, 2013 10:39am | Fact Magazine

Underground Resistance collective Timeline will be headlining, and with Mad Mike Banks playing conductor this should be a slice of live techno that you won’t want to miss under any circumstances.
It doesn’t stop there though, sci-fi techno legend Jeff Mills, scene stalwart Robert Hood and Blueprint’s James Ruskin will all be dropping sets, making this a veritable explosion of serious, bullshit-free techno.
