Mary J. Blige Is the Latest Singer Who Doesn't Like to Pay Taxes...
May 20, 2013 3:03pm | The Daily Swarm
Mary J. Blige has just been slapped with a tax lien by the government. The IRS claims that Blige owes around $3.4 million. Damn, that’s a lot of dough. But if you think the R&B songstress is just trying to swagger-jack Lauryn Hill, you have it wrong – Blige has been in heavy financial trouble for a while now. Via TMZ:
Katie & Allison Crutchfield
May 20, 2013 3:03pm | StereoGum
Well, this is pretty dope. Rookie has commissioned a theme song for the month of May, and it’s badass both in theory and in execution. Waxahatchee leader Katie Crutchfield and her twin sister, Swearin’ leader Allison have recorded a punked-up cover of a song that never exactly screamed for a punked-up cover: Grimes’ ethereal burble “Oblivion,” which is already pretty punk in its own way. The end result, with ragged guitar-jangles and beautifully sunny harmonies, works as a refreshing take on an already-great song. Listen to it below.

The Blind Boys of Alabama @ Town Hall, 5/17/2013 (via
The Blind Boys of Alabama tour hit NYC on Friday (5/17) at Town Hall with Betty LaVette. The group have just announced they've signed with Sony Masterworks who will release their new album this fall. "We are thrilled to be on our new label, and we have a real surprise on the way with this new album. I think it's the coolest thing we've ever done," says 80-something singer Jimmy Carter who is the last original member still touring with The Blind Boys. That surprise, or at least one of them, is that Justin Vernon of Bon Iver will produce the album. Special guests are promised too and we'll just have to wait to find out what's in store.
In the meantime, Blind Boys of Alamaba's tour rolls on. All dates are listed below.

San Francisco producer oOoOO has put out a few solid EPs on the Tri Angle label over the past couple of years, and now he's finally set to release his debut full length, which is called Without Your Love. The album will come out on June 24 via his own label which is called Nihjgt Feelings, and no, that wasn't a typo. oOoOO has released two singles from the album so far, including the super-dark "Mouchette" and "Stay Here," which features some auto-tuned R&B vocals from ML. Check those out, along with the album art and tracklist, below.
As mentioned, oOoOO will be going on a tour with Groundislava, and though that tour doesn't hit NYC, both artists will play their own shows at Brooklyn venue Glasslands before the tour begins. oOoOO's show is a previously discussed date happening on May 23 with Selebrities and Dark Sister. Tickets for that show are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win tickets are below.
Groundislava's Glasslands show is a previously discussed date happening exactly a week later on May 30 with Fur and Time Wharp. Tickets for that show are still available too.

Get your earplugs ready.
Last year’s full-length The Seer was a brilliant and succinct culmination of the Swans catalogue to date, and stood as one of the finest albums of 2013. It’s only right then that the album should get a proper tour, and Michael Gira’s boys are due to traipse through the US and Europe from now until the end of the summer.
For those Swans fans who want to see something a little different, Sacred Bones’ Pharmakon will be supporting the band on their Iowa, Kentucky, Ohio and Buffalo, New York dates bringing her particular brand of gruesome, overdriven noise to the party. [via Pitchfork]

Where's Kevin Bacon When You Need Him? Japan's Anti-Dance Laws Are Ridiculous...
May 20, 2013 2:33pm | The Daily Swarm
Japan’s laws governing “adult entertainment” are squeezing the life out of Osaka’s club scene. Venues must close by midnight or 1 AM, provide an impossible amount of square footage on the dance floor, and apply for a license if they wish to host events where people will dance. We’ve seen this before in Footloose, so we know there’s hope. Via The Guardian:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Flaming Lips, The Darkness @ Great Googa Mooga

The Great Googa Mooga took over Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on Friday night, and though the food and music festival did battle with the forces of nature on Sunday, the Friday night festivities were considerably calmer. Well, actually, with a lineup built around the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Flaming Lips and the Darkness things couldn’t get too calm. Each band brought a distinct sense of style to the event: Wayne Coyne wore a cool turquoise jacket, Justin Hawkins busted out of a striped jumpsuit and Karen O sported a killer box hat.
