Alice Glass responds to Ethan Kaths Crystal Castles comments, teases new music
Apr 17, 2015 4:25pm | Fact Magazine
The singer responds to her former bandmember’s comments.
Yesterday Crystal Castles returned with new music. This was a surprise for many who assumed the project was over since the duo of Alice Glass and Ethan Kath split last year.
When Kath posted his new song ‘Frail’ it came with a note underplaying Glass’s role in the project, and mentioning how she took credit for lyrics that he wrote. The post was deleted shortly after, but Glass has now responded to the comments on Twitter with a very different take.
On a more positive note, she followed her comments with a promise that new music is on the way.

Liturgy at Saint Vitus - 4/15/15
Liturgy brought their tour in support of their new album, The Ark Work, to their hometown of Brooklyn for a sold-out show at Saint Vitus on Wednesday (4/15). The new album abandons the harsh vocal style of their previous material and is closer to art rock than anything you'd call "metal," but it does retain some of their more aggressive elements like drummer Greg Fox's punishing blastbeats. They're focusing mostly on the new stuff for this tour but including a couple from its predecessor, 2011's Aesthetica, too.
Opening was another band who walk the line between metal and non-metal, Psalm Zero, and the new-music ensemble Mivos Quartet. Pictures of all three bands are in this post and continue below...

Young Thug Constantly Hating (Feat. Birdman) Video
Apr 17, 2015 4:06pm | StereoGum
Yesterday, Young Thug released his deeply absorbing Barter 6 album, though he's now saying that it's really just a mixtape and that the real album, called Hy!£UN35, is coming in August. In any case, Thug just shared a video for the strange, bloopy, amazing Barter 6 opener "Constantly Hating," which has a pretty incredible … More »
Jack White taking a break from performing after short acoustic tour +++ pics, video & setlist from Coachella weekend 1

Jack White @ Coachella 4/11/2015
White is one of indie music's most revered figures, a musician who would certainly go into a Coachella hall of fame inaugural class alongside the likes of Beck, Radiohead and Daft Punk. As a result, he could have walked out on Saturday night, waved to the crowd and taken his victory lap. Instead he did just the opposite, attacking the audience with drums that sounded like an explosion on songs like opening 10-minute version of the White Stripes' "Icky Thump." Perhaps the Weeknd closing out the main stage instead of the rocker gave White a chip on his shoulder, or maybe he just connects best with the Indio desert; whatever the reason, White was fired up on Saturday night compared to his many other festival gigs over the past two years. - [Billboard]Jack White has been a tireless performer for the last 15 years or so, but has decided he needs a break. After his performance this weekend at Coachella, he'll be playing acoustic shows in the five states in which he has yet to perform. The shows' states and cities won't be announced till the day of the performance, though it's speculated that he'll be playing Alaska, Idaho, the Dakotas and Wyoming. Jack will be performing as part of a quartet featuring Fats Kaplin, Lillie Mae Rische and Dominic Davis and the shows will be totally acoustic, with the only amplification being ribbon...
Alice Glass Responds To Ethan Kaths Manipulative Statements About Crystal Castles
Apr 17, 2015 3:59pm | StereoGum
Looks like the Crystal Castles beef is officially ON. Yesterday, the band's producer/instrumentalist Ethan Kath released a new song called "Frail" under the Crystal Castles moniker, and in the process, slagged off former bandmate/singer Alice Glass, saying, "she didn't appear on Crystal Castles' best known songs," and, "people often gave her credit for my … More »
Chromeo announces Las Vegas residency at Drais Nightclub
Apr 17, 2015 3:54pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Las Vegas residencies aren’t just for magicians anymore. For a long time, an extended Vegas gig was a business proposition for musicians no longer reaching past levels of radio success — the Celine Dions, Boyz II Mens, and Guns N’ Roses of the pop world. Things changed with the rise of EDM, as acts like Avicii and Kaskade set up shop in Sin City, and then came the pop stars like Britney Spears and, um, Taylor Hicks.
Now, things are gonna get funky as Chromeo has announced a summer residency at Las Vegas’ Drai’s Beachclub Nightclub. Yes, the White Women pair also scheduled to play festivals like Glastonbury, Sasquatch!, and Governors Ball has joined the ranks of Penn and Teller and Shania Twain. It’s a bit of a left field signing for a hotspot like Drai’s, but that’s actually precisely why they were booked.
Chromeo leads a part of the music industry that the nightlife scene hasnt experimented with much, until now, Drais managing partner Ryan Michael Craig said in a press release. They exude a specific sound and energy that resonates with all kinds of people. Their participation in our Drais LIVE concert series will bring a completely different dynamic to the current state of headliners throughout Las Vegas.
Dave 1 and P-Thugg’s first scheduled performance at the venue is July 31st, with shows on August 28th and October 9th al...

Today In Black Sabbaths Facebook Feud
Apr 17, 2015 3:16pm | StereoGum
A quick update on Black Sabbath's public infighting this week: First, drummer Bill Ward posted to Facebook that he wouldn't play with Sabbath again until Ozzy Osbourne apologized to him for saying he was too fat and out of shape to participate in recording sessions for 2013 album 13 and the accompanying world tour.

Take a look inside Platten Pedro, Berlins hidden gem of a record store
Apr 17, 2015 3:15pm | Fact Magazine
The eccentric store has built a dedicated word of mouth following over four decades.
Platten Pedro opens every weekday morning at 10:07. That’s not because they’re a few minutes late, their website literally lists the opening time as 10:07 am — except on weekends when the doors open at 9:59. That is just one example of the wonderfully eccentric habits of Platten Pedro, which is both the name for the store and a nickname for its owner Peter Patzek which has become one of the best kept secrets of Berlin.
Opened by Patzek and his wife in what was originally West Berlin, Pedro’s collection grew to what is now over 100,000 records. There are no genre sections — rock, rap, classical — it’s all categorized alphabetically, with artists measured by the length of space they take up on the shelf. It’s a store you need to see to beleive, and now you can.
The Vinyl Factory recently headed to Platten Pedro and over the next several pages you can take a look at photos by Graeme Vaughan from the strange and wonderful store.

The album will follow the just-released Barter 6 mixtape.
Young Thug just dropped Barter 6, and news about his next project is not far behind. Thugger will release his proper debut album, Hy!£UN35 (allegedly pronounced “hi-tunes”) on August 28, via Atlantic sub-label 300 Entertainment.
“300 is proud to present Young Thug! We believe he is a unique artist who will have a special place in the future of hip hop,” says 300 Entertainment boss Lyor Cohen in a statement.

A streaming tally of Record Store Day 2015 exclusives you can hear now
Apr 17, 2015 2:54pm | Chart Attack
Say what you want about Record Store Day, but it sure does create a lot of new music. Most of it is music you have to line up for early in the morning and hope - just hope - that your local shop got inventory. But, though it's pretty antithetical to the vinyl-centric brick and mortar mentality of the event, a lot of this music has already made its way online. And a lot more of it still will. So, both in advance of Record Store Day 2015 (Saturday, April 18) and after, we're collecting streams below. Let us know what we missed on Facebook or Twitter.
