Listen: M.I.A.'s Chaotic New Single, 'Bring the Noize'...
Jun 17, 2013 4:50pm | The Daily Swarm
It’s been in the making for what seems like forever, but the first sign of M.I.A.'s new album, Matangi, is finally here. “Bring the Noize” is a audio-clashing overhaul, employing samples of creaky rocking chairs and cut-up vocals over a paradoxically sparse beat. The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC1 radio show and there’s apparently a video on the way. M.I.A. spoke about her frustration leading up to the album’s completion. Via Pitchfork:

Phosphorescent played McCarren Park, expand tour, playing Prospect Park w/ Robert Plant & XPoNential Music Festival

Phosphorescent at McCarren Park - 6/15/13 (via
Matthew Houck's indie folk collective Phosphorescent have been touring behind their excellent new album Muchacho, and just played a free show in Matthew's current hometown of Brooklyn. The show was the first of two free Northside shows in McCarren Park and also included The Walkmen, Friend Roulette, and Abadabad. Did you go to that show? If so, how was it?
Phosphorescent's tour includes another NYC-area date happening at Montauk's Surf Lodge on June 30, as part of that venue's free Summer Concert Series, and now Pitchfork points out that they've just expanded that tour to include many more dates. A couple of the dates are supporting Robert Plant (who used to be in some band called Led Zeppelin), including his previously discussed Celebrate Brooklyn! show on July 27 at Prospect Park. Tickets for that show are still available.
The day after that show (7/28), Phosphorescent also play Camden, NJ's XPoNential Music Festival, which runs that whole weekend (July 26-28) in Wiggins Park and Susquehanna Bank Center. Other artists playing include Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Dr. John, Lord Huron, and more. Tickets for that festival are available.
Updated dates are listed, along with a stream of Muchacho's standout single, "Song for Zula," below...

Watch: Joni Mitchell in a Rare, Career-Spanning Interview...
Jun 17, 2013 4:33pm | The Daily Swarm
Joni Mitchell doesn’t really do interviews, so you can understand the endorphin-overload we experienced when we came across this comprehensive two hour-long interview with one of our all-time favorite artists. Brace yourself; you’ll probably need to revisit the clip a few times to let it fully sink in. Via TwentyFourBit:

Sonny & The Sunsets have delivered a quirky animated video for their track “Green Blood.” The tune comes from their most recent album, Antenna To The Afterworld, which is about space and death, but here they explore interplanetary romance. Watch for the Crystal Pepsi reference. Check it out below.

The National @ Younge-Dundas Square, 6/14/2013
While the Northside Festival was going on here in Brooklyn, and Bonnaroo was going on in Tennessee, Toronto was hosting its annual NXNE festival. Day 2 of NXNE had some great shows like Buke & Gase and more at Horseshoe Tavern, Julian Lynch/Luyas, Majical Cloudz and more at Sneaky Dee's (pictures of both of those coming soon), Odonis Odonis, The Soft Moon and more at The Garrison, and more. It also had one of the most exciting free Yonge-Dundas Square concerts of the weekend with headliners The National. Pictures of that show (including openers CTZNSHP and Hayden) are in this post.
We already posted NXNE day 1 pics, and more coverage is still on the way. More pictures of the National's Yonge-Dundas Square show below...

more pics from Invisible Oranges Northside showcase with Torche, KEN Mode, Lo-Pan & Inter Arma

Torche by Keith Marlowe
As discussed previously, Torche played the Invisible Oranges showcase during Northside Festival at 285 Kent on Friday (6/14). Backed by strong support from metallic Am-Rep lovers KEN Mode, blues-y riffers Lo-Pan and groove-leaning black metal badasses Inter Arma, the sold out show was a monster. More pictures from the IO showcase are in this post.
The IO show happened at basically the same time as Kylesa at Music Hall of Williamsburg , just a few blocks away and also part of the greater Northside Festival.
More 285 Kent pics are below.

Bjork / Empire of the Sun @ Bonnaroo, 6/15/2013
There's no shortage of kooky costumed folk at Bonnaroo, but it's usually the antendees who are eccentrically attired. On Saturday (6/15), though, the main stage gave them a run for their money. Ever fashion forward, Bjork wore a headdress that either made her look like a dandelion or an extra from Hellraiser. (She wore it at the Hollywood Bowl too.) Australia's Empire of the Sun was a close runner up with their over-the-top headlining set that could've been from Flash Gordon. Mumford & Sons had to cancel (replaced by shoe-phobic folkie Jack Johnson), but Saturday also main stage sets from Billy Idol, R. Kelly, Nas, Cat Power, Matt & Kim, Portugal. The Man, The Lumineers and more. Pictures from those sets are in this post.
Elsewhere at Bonnaroo on Saturday, Mac DeMarco, JEFF the Brotherhood, Lord Huron and others on the smaller stages, a live episode of Scott Aukerman's Comedy Bang Bang, and in the Cinema Tent, Police Academy's sound effects wiz Michael Winslow (who played with Animal Collective the night before) did a one man show.
Pictures from Thursday are HERE and Friday are HERE, with Sunday still to come. More pictures from Saturday below...

Lil Wayne steps on American flag during

Weezy jumps from one controversy to the next.
Just as Lil Wayne’s Emmett Till controversy disappeared in the rear view mirror, the confounding rapper has stepped in it again, or rather, stepped on it.
While shooting the video for I Am Not A Human Being II‘s ‘God Bless Amerika’, Weezy performed in front of and then on top of an American flag. The cell phone footage is below; US readers should prepare for Fox News-types to call for Presidential action.
Recently, Wayne announced plans to reform the Big Tymers, but replacing Mannie Fresh with himself and Drake. Elsewhere, comedian Jay Pharoah does a spectacular impression of Wayne’s recent streak of awful lines.
Chief Keef pleads guilty to speeding charge, then gets arrested again
Jun 17, 2013 4:08pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In news you couldn’t make up: Keith Cozart, a.k.a. Chief Keef, was arrested in Chicago today only minutes after pleading guilty to a separate charge.
According to The Chicago Tribune, Cozart appeared at the Skokie Courthouse to face charges stemming from last month’s arrest on the Edens Expressway. Cozart was clocked going 110 in a 55 mph zone, and was also cited for having too many passengers in his vehicle (Cozart currently has a learner
Chief Keef Arrested, and No, We Didn't Accidentally Repost an Old Story...
Jun 17, 2013 4:06pm | The Daily Swarm
Chief Keef getting arrested is becoming such a common occurrence that “shit,” “don’t,” and “like” is the most searchable three-word combo on the Daily Swarm. Incredibly, Keef was arrested upon leaving a Chicago courtroom after appearing in traffic court. The reason for the arrest is still unknown (we’ll keep you updated), but as FACT point out, “it really could be anything. Eating a footlong sub in public maybe, or possibly the cops just took a listen to Keef
