Watch Weird Al Perform Lame Claim To Fame On Craig Ferguson
Oct 18, 2014 12:25pm | StereoGum

Weird Al stopped by Craig Ferguson last night to talk with the late-night host and give a performance of Mandatory Fun track “Lame Claim To Fame,” which is a parody of North Carolina rockabilly band Southern Culture On the Skids. In his pre-performance interview, Yankovic talked about his album cover and poked fun at the fact that his new album was released on vinyl — “you don’t really appreciate the jokes until you hear the scratches on the vinyl.” Watch below.

Pond @ Bowery Ballroom 10/17/2014

Australian head trippers Pond will drop their sixth album, Man, It Feels Like Space Again, in January via Modular and you can stream first taste "Waiting Around for Grace" below. North America can get a bigger taste, though, as Pond just started their North American tour with fellow countrymen Doctopus, and are currently halfway through a two-night stay in New York City, having played Bowery Ballroom last night (10/17) with Aussie ex-pat Fascinator on the bill as well. Pics from that show are in this post and the same lineup plays Rough Trade tonight (10/19) and tickets are still available.

Pics of Doctopus (and a stream of their album) and Fascinator, plus more of Pond and their new songs stream, below...

Watch Foxygens Wild Performance On A Chicago Morning News Show
Oct 18, 2014 12:06pm | StereoGum

Foxygen gave a wild performance on the WGN Morning News show in Chicago yesterday. They played …And Star Power track “Brooklyn Police Station.” Frontman Sam France did a lot of jumping around and some guttural screaming and was joined by three backup dancers who joined in on the fun too. As Pitchfork points out, it’s similar to a performance that Ty Segall gave a few years ago on the same show that left the news anchors shocked. Watch the spirited performance right here.

Foo Fighters return to site of Dave Grohls first concert and deliver a historic performance watch
Oct 18, 2014 11:30am | Cosequence Of Sound

Foo Fighters celebrated the premiere of their new HBO series, Sonic Highways, with an intimate 800-person capacity concert at the Cubby Bear in Chicago, Illinois on Friday night. Dave Grohl repeatedly told the audience that this was “the weirdest night of my life,” as the Cubby Bear was the place he saw his first concert in 1983. Even more surreal, the band was joined on-stage by Jeff Pezzati, frontman of Naked Raygun, the band who Grohl saw perform live at that concert.

After screening the first episode of Sonic Highways, Foo Fighters hit the stage just after 11pm CT and proceeded to play a 22-song set of greatest hits, rarities, and covers, along with the live debut of their new single, “Something From Nothing”.

Highlights included “Up in Arms”, which Grohl dedicated to Chicago producer Steve Albini; covers of Cheap Tricks “Stiff Competition” and “Surrender” featuring the band’s founding member Rick Nielsen on guitar; an extended jam version of “This Is A Call” during which Grohl played from atop the bar; and a cover of Naked Raygun’s “Surf Combat” featuring Pezzati on vocals. The setlist ended with Neilsen returning to the stage to perform on”Something From Nothing” before the band concluded the evening with “Everlong”.

The only thing preventing Foo Fighters from continuing on with their p...


Camron Is Selling Ebola Masks
Oct 18, 2014 11:18am | StereoGum

Ebola panic is in full swing, so let’s be thankful that Cam’ron is looking out for us. The New York rapper is now selling Cam’ron-branded Ebola masks in his online store. “Wrap it up and protect yourself from Ebola just like Killa Cam!” the website advertises. “Provides complete protection while remaining light and comfortable. Polypropylene outer facing offers a soft, fluid protection barrier while the cellulose inner facing assures comfort and breathability. A full-width nosepiece guarantees proper fit. Latex-free ear loops.” It’s the greatest celebrity protective gear since Peter Sarsgaard’s SARS Guards. Check out a better view of the mask below.

Weird Al Yankovic performs Lame Claim to Fame on Craig Ferguson watch
Oct 18, 2014 10:56am | Cosequence Of Sound

Craig Ferguson doesn’t invite nearly as many musical guests to The Late Late Show as his fellow late-night hosts. So, when he actually does, it’s usually something special or an artist truly close to the Scotsman’s heart. Case in point: Friday night’s episode featured an appearance from one “Weird Al” Yankovic.

The pair seemed especially buddy-buddy as they sat down for a pre-performance chat, whipping compliments back-and-forth and discussing, among other things, the power of vinyl and Al’s Putin-esque pose on the cover of Mandatory Fun. From there, Yankovic and his band hit the stage for an extra bluesy rendition of album standout “Lame Claim to Fame”. It’s hard to decide what was more entertaining, though: Ferguson’s introductory gang signs that spelled out “Weird Al” or Yankovic’s creepy, creepy cowbell solo. See, told you it’d be special.

Moneys no object: watch the surreal video for Shabazz Palaces Motion Sickness ahead of their European tour
Oct 18, 2014 10:38am | Fact Magazine

Seattle duo weave a tale of deception in new video.

Earlier this year Shabazz Palaces released their second album for the Sub Pop label, Lese Majesty. In our review of the record, Maya Kalev called it thus: “if Black Up established their status as hip-hop outliers, then Lese Majesty solidifies their place in the pantheon of raps oddball geniuses.”

Equally oddball have been the videos for Lese Majesty and the latest, for album track ‘Motion Sickness’, continues that trend with a surreal tale of drugs, undercover agents and dreaming girls. You can watch the video exclusively below.

Shabazz Palaces are hitting the road today for an extensive European tour that runs until mid-November and takes in Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, the UK, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Germany. You can see full dates and locations beneath the video.

Fans at last night’s Pearl Jam show in Moline, Illinois were treated to a pair of big surprises, as Alternative Nation points out.

The band began their set with an unannounced full performance of their fourth studio album, No Code. According to Eddie Vedder, it marked only the second time in the band’s career that they played an entire album in concert.

Equally exciting was the debut of a brand new song called “Moline” to kick off Pearl Jam’s first encore of the evening. Vedder reportedly wrote the song 10 minutes before the show and said it related to the band’s classic single, “Better Man”.

Watch fan-shot footage from the concert below. The full 36-song, two-encore setlist follows.

“Hail, Hail”:

“Smile”:

“Present Tense”:

The Weeks Best Vinyl Releases
Oct 18, 2014 6:42am | Fact Magazine

Few people are onto great records as quickly as a great record store.

After years spent discovering gems in Phonicas end of year lists, it made sense to give them a regular space on FACT. Every Saturday, staff from the Soho institution will pick out the five vinyl records you should grab this week.



GLITTERBEAT
Dubs And Versions LP
(Glitterbeat)

Barely a year after launching the Glitterbeat label, Chris Eckman and Peter Weber have pieced together this ace compilation of dubs and remixes, tapping post-punk rebel Mark Stewart, dubmaster Dennis Bovell, Basic Channel’s Mark Ernestus and Shangaan electro progenitor Nozinja to rework their stable of mostly Malian releases. Truly unique.

SEBASTIAN MULLAERT & EITAN REITER
Reflections Of Nothingness 2xLP
(Mule Music)

A deeply absorbing listen from the combined brainpower of Minilogue’s Sebastian Mullaert and Israeli cross-genre producer Eitan Reiter, flitting from tactile analogue techno (the LP was largely made on a TB303, TR808, SH101 and Juno 60) to billowing ambient interludes and back again with meditative ease.

Watch Rick Rubin return to the dorm room where Def Jam started
Oct 18, 2014 6:36am | Fact Magazine

With Def Jam turning 30, Rick Rubin revisits where it all started.

Back in 1984, a daring young kid living in New York City decided that the hip hop he was hearing on the radio and records wasn’t up to par with what he’d experienced in the clubs of the city. And so Def Jam Recordings was born, a label that would go on to shape hip hop’s rise as the last defining musical genre of the 20th century.

Much has been written and said on the history of Def Jam, the label founded by Rubin and his on/off partner Russel Simmons, notably in The Big Payback, a 2011 book that details the history of the business of hip hop. With the label turning 30 this year, those who started it all are once more taking a look back.

Rolling Stone has released a short documentary, titled Rick Was Here, that follows Rubin’s return to his dorm room at New York University, room 712 at Weinstein Hall. It was in the dorm room that Def Jam started and where it spent its first years.

With help from Simmons, Def Jam president Lyor Cohen, his ex-roommate and rappers LL Cool J and The Beastie Boys’ Adam Horowitz, Rubin recalls the early years of the label from learning how to produce a record to trying to capture the energy of the music on wax for the first time.
