  1. Chris Brown has been arrested in Paris, France, according to French police, on accusations of raping an unidentified 24-year-old woman. According to French magazine Closer, the attack occurred in Brown’s hotel on January 15. The woman is said to have met him at Le Crystal, a nightclub close to the Champs-Élysées. She left the club with Brown, another woman and three other men, after which they went back to his hotel, the Mandarin Oriental. Once in the room, the victim says she was left alone with Brown in his room, he attacked her, and his bodyguard and another man helped Brown abuse her. Police were notified the following Monday, January 21, and Brown, his bodyguard and another man were arrested. A police spokesman gave the following statement to the media: “He is accused of rape and is being held at the judicial police offices in the 1st arrondissement. He was arrested with two others on Monday, and interviews and other inquiries are ongoing. The offense is said to have taken place on the night of January 15 this year.” No statement has been given from Brown’s label, Sony Music, at this time. With Spotify’s new feature for blocking/muting specific artists, this should be a no-brainer. via Rolling Out This article was first published on Your EDM.

  2. Following last year’s announcement of a new album featuring the vocals of their late frontman Wayne Static, as well as guest singers, the surviving members of L.A. industrial metal group Static-X have revealed that they will be embarking on a North American tour this summer with co-headliners DevilDriver. They’ve also shared a video for a newly recorded version of “Push It” featuring as as-yet-unnamed guest vocalist. Billed as a memorial tribute to Wayne Static, this tour was set up both to promote their forthcoming album, Project Generation, and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album, Wisconsin Death Trip. “Our intention is to pay ultimate respect to Wayne and to celebrate the music that has been in all of our hearts for more than 20 years,” bassist Tony Campos said in a statement accompanying the news. “It’s all about channeling the vibe from 1999 to the best of our ability and playing those classic Static-X songs live and loud.” In addition to Static-X and DevilDriver, the tour will feature support from Dope, the heavy rockers who will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album Felons and Revolutionaries. The trek kicks off on June 18th in Tempe, Arizona. You can get tickets here. “For those who don’t know, I am the one who first discovered STATIC-X back in the day in a small club in front of about 40 people,” DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara said. “Co-headlining this first memorial tour is not only a way to pay homage to Wayne, but something I’m very excited to do. Static-X will be closing the show each night out of respect for Wayne. I’ll be there nightly, side stage, watching the unit do their thing with a big smile. I hope that Wayne will be there in spirit, watching as his brothers pay respect by bringing this music back to the fans that made the band so massive! I know he would have loved this!” The only question that remains is who Static-X has found to take over vocals for Wayne Static on this upcoming tour. The promo clip that the band released today obscures the person singing this new version of “Push It,” a tune originally found on Wisconsin Death Trip. The band insists that they will reveal this mystery guest in due time but for the moment, says drummer Ken Jay, “It would be inappropriate for us to put the focus on anyone other than Wayne, Tony, Koichi and myself. It feels like the best way for us to celebrate Wayne’s legacy, along with the 20th anniversary of Wisconsin Death Trip, with all of our fans.” Wayne Static died at age 41 in 2014 from a lethal mix of prescription drugs and alcohol. Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, with a pre-sale beginning tomorrow. Both Static-X (click here) and DevilDriver (click here) are offering meet and greets for various stops on this trek, as well. Meanwhile, details on the new Static-X album are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. You can also get tickets here.

  3. Idris Elba has been getting a ton of media attention in 2019, and it’s not for his acting. His DJ career is starting to gain steam and has only been bolstered with news that he’s performing at Coachella this year. For those that dismiss his abilities, they need only look online for various mixes he’s made public or tracks he’s put out. He’s actually just been featured on a new track “Boasty” from Wiley, Sean Paul, and Stefflon Don. And it’s absolutely fire. It has a classic dance hall riddim and bouncy vibe — each artist contributes plenty to the end product, whether it’s in vocals or support. Putting Idris on the track is just the icing on top of an already tasty treat. Check out “Boasty” below.  This article was first published on Your EDM.

  4. New music from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is on the horizon. The legendary singer-songwriter brought his “‘So What Do You Want to Know?’ Conversations with Nick Cave Tour” to his native Australia this month. The events include Q&A sessions where fans get to speak to the artist directly, and at a recent show in Melbourne, he offered an answer to the perpetually burning question of new music (via NME). Addressing the crowd, Cave said, “We’ve really nearly finished a new record, I would say. And it’s an amazing thing in my opinion.” He added that the forthcoming release, which will be the Bad Seeds’ seventeenth studio album to date date, has him “very, very excited.” The feeling is mutual. Last year, Cave’s wife and model Susie Bick revealed that her husband was holed up in Los Angeles working on an album. At the time she wrote that Cave’s newest compositions “reveal themselves at night in his fever dreams. They are his Fever Songs.” Cave’s last release was the live EP Distant Sky — Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Live in Copenhagen. His last full-length studio LP came in 2016 with Skeleton Tree. In addition to his new work with the Bad Seeds, Cave and frequent partner Warren Ellis are set to score HBO’s forthcoming docuseries The Case Against Adnan Syed, which follows the trial story that Sarah Koenig made a cultural phenomenon with the inaugural season of the podcast Serial.

  5. Dido is set for a comeback with her first album in five years, Still on My Mind, dropping March 8th via BMG. After sharing the electronically ambiance of “Hurricanes”, the English songwriter has now delivered another taste of the record with “Give You Up”. A simply exquisite piano ballad, the track vibrates on little more than simple keyed notes and resonating vocals echoing over one another. Muted heartbeat thrums punctuate the composition as Dido resiliently sings of being finally ready to move on: “I found a way to let you go/ So you don’t have to stay now/ A broken mind, but I came close/ But you can’t rip my heart out/ I’m giving up, I’m giving up/ I’ll give you up/ I found a way to let you go/ It’s gonna rip your heart out.” The empowering song was written by Dee Adams of Aussie duo The Opposite Kids. Speaking of the track in a press release, Dido called it “just so perfect. It’s a good break up song, where you’ve been hurt but feel strong. It’s that point in a relationship where you are pulling yourself out of the gutter and deciding that it’s their loss. Which I can totally relate to.” Take a listen below. Dido will support Still on My Mind with an international summer tour. It’s her first trek in 15 years, so it should come as no surprise that it’s one of our most anticipated tours of the year. Source
  6. When it comes to the music industry (or any industry for that matter), it’s important to recognize mental health as a priority. This is exactly why artists including Getter and Flosstradamus recently joined a panel to discuss mental health, during a live Q&A facilitated by Icon Collective and Back To Back. Long hours, unpredictable pay, and overall stressful situations are just the beginning of artist struggles — especially on the way up to the top. As a bigger act, that shifts into hefty tour schedules, even more time on the road, and potential tolls on health and wellness. Not to mention, DJ/producers are expected to put themselves out there with their art and social media presence. It’s a demanding gig to say the least. In the video below, Getter, Flosstradamus, Aryay, and Blaise DeAngelo weigh in on their own personal experiences and the importance of mental health in the industry. We commend these artists for being open and honest about the hurdles they’ve faced. The better we can all understand, the better we can all build a support system for the EDM community and beyond. Watch over an hour’s worth of footage from the live Q&A, posted below via Back To Back.

  7. Bring Me the Horizon continue to abandon their deathcore beginnings as they release new music from their latest album, amo, which arrives this Friday (January 25th). The UK band goes full dance-pop on their newest song, “Mother Tongue” (listen below). The track follows previously released songs “Mantra”, “Wonderful Life”, and “Medicine”. The music is a far cry from the band’s 2006 deathcore debut, Count Your Blessings, and even much different from the metalcore sound of their following three discs, ending with 2013’s Sempiternal. The band started exploring a pop-leaning rock sound on 2015’s That’s the Spirit, with amo seemingly marking a full transition. “Mother Tongue” is a mid-tempo track with electronic vibe and a dance-y chorus. Bring Me the Horizon kick off a North American tour tomorrow night (January 23rd) in Nashville, Tennessee. The trek runs through a February 16th gig in Las Vegas, Nevada. Check out a full list of dates here. Tour Preview: Bring Me the Metallica’s Top 5 Songs Tool’s Top 5 Music Videos Favorite Setlist.fm Music Moments in Behemoth's Top 5 Songs Source
  8. 2019 is here and with it is the the brand new collab between two of Italy’s finest, Danny Ores & Flaremode. It’s titled “Nutty” and lives up to the name, packing enormous hype and energy into the full three and a half minutes. Danny Ores had a massive year in 2018, releasing on Dannic’s Fonk label and earning the attention of legends like David Guetta, Bingo Players, and Fedde Le Grand. Flaremode was on a roll too, cementing a residency with Billboard Radio as well as releasing huge tunes on Smash The House Records and capping the year off with the electrifying single “Front To Back” with Rivero. Together, Danny Ores & Flaremode prove to be an amazing team and “Nutty” is a track you can expect to hear in heavy rotation all year long. This article was first published on Your EDM.

  9. Rosalía is a Catalan songwriter who embeds traditional flamenco music with elements of contemporary R&B and hip-hop. Last year she released El Mal Querer, a powerful full-length inspired by the 14th century novel Flamenca, which jettisoned her stardom to the point where she’s now headlining Spanish festivals like Primavera Sound and Bilbao BBK Live, as well as playing this year’s Coachella. Following an epic run of videos from El Mal Querer shared in 2018, Rosalía has revealed today another for the song “DE AQUÍ NO SALES (Cap.4: Disputa)” – the fifth of the album’s 11 tracks to receive a visual treatment. Directors Diana Kunst and Mau Morgó work in a great deal of compelling imagery showcasing the singer’s signature swagger, from her decked out on the back of a speeding pick-up truck encompassed by her posse to her chin-deep in a pool of ink-like water beside a stray engine. In every scene, Rosalía comes across singularly unfuckwitable. Check it out below, as well as a few of Rosalía’s other videos from El Mal Querer. Rosalía was also recently featured on the highlight “Barefoot in the Park” off James Blake’s just released album Assume Form. Source
  10. The Mountain Goats closed out 2018 with a surprise EP titled Hex of Infinite Binding. Fans will be delighted to hear that the John Darnielle-led folk outfit will be delivering even more new music in the new year, according to a press statement. In anticipation of this incoming material, The Mountain Goats have mapped out a North American tour. “Good people of the Mountain Goatsmassive, we are pleased to report that we have sojourned for a season in the cave upon the hillside where the ancient crystals tremble; and have returned from thence with much news, of which you will all be soon made aware,” Darnielle remarked in a statement. “The first bit of this news is that we are going to tour like wild hounds.” (Read: The 50 Most Outrageous Album Covers) The new trek officially begins April 26th at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC and runs until September 18th. Darnielle & co. are expected to play back-to-back nights in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco. They’ll also hit cities like Brooklyn, Toronto, Boston, Memphis, Salt Lake City, and Los Angeles. Consult the full tour schedule below, and grab tickets here.

  11. Ty Segall dished out four albums in 2018, including covers LP Fudge Sandwich and one of the year’s best in Freedom’s Goblin. The prolific garage rocker, naturally, is planning another productive 12 months, today announcing a new live album. Deforming Lobes is set to hit stores on March 29th through Drag City. It was recorded live on stage last year at Los Angeles’ Teragram Ballroom onto two-inch tape. The material was then mixed at Electrical Audio by Steve Albini, the renowned studio wizard known for his work with the Pixies, Nirvana, and Jawbreaker. (Read: The Top 50 Albums of 2018) The eight-track collection includes selections from Segall records past, such as Emotional Mugger, Twins, and Manipulator. It also notably features Ty Segall’s Freedom Band — Mikal Cronin, Charles Moothart, Emmett Kelly, and Ben Boye — and marks the “first original statement” from the group, per a statement. As a first look at Deforming Lobes, Segall has let loose a new live version of Twins track “Love Fuzz”. Stream that below. Pre-order the new album here. Peep the artwork and full tracklist below.

  12. Death Cab for Cutie will spend their summer touring across North America with the accompaniment of opening acts such as Mitski, Car Seat Headrest, and Jenny Lewis. Ahead of that anticipated trek, the group appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday to deliver a glowing performance of “Northern Lights”. The single is taken from Thank You For Today, Death Cab’s ninth LP released back in August 2018. It was recently remixed by Alessandro Cortini of Nine Inch Nails. Check out the performance below, followed by the remix. Death Cab are currently on the road in Europe, and will return with North American dates come March. They celebrated the 15th anniversary of their classic Transatlanticism record last fall. Grab tickets here. Source
  13. Thanks to various high profile artists like Tekashi 6ix9ine, Datsik and more recently R. Kelly (though “recently” isn’t as accurate as saying “again for the same thing”) becoming embroiled in high-profile PR scandals, more and more users on music services are voicing their desire to boycott these artists. Up until now, it’s been impossible to passively block an artist on Spotify — you’ve still been able to skip songs or remove their songs from playlists. However, Spotify is introducing a new feature that will fix that. Spotify has been actively testing the new feature on its iOS. Rather than blatantly “blocking” an artist, the button reads, “Don’t play this artist.” It’s essentially the same thing with less harsh wording. Photo by Tom Warren / The Verge “The feature simply lets you block an entire artist from playing, so that songs from the artist will never play from a library, playlist, chart list, or even radio stations on Spotify,” writes Verge. But it’s not perfect yet. Right now, the function lets you block songs from that artist, but not songs the artist is featured on. As the feature is rolled out to more users, it’s likely that oversight will be fixed. No word yet on when the feature will be pushed wide to all of Spotify’s users, but it likely won’t be that much longer. via The Verge This article was first published on Your EDM.

  14. Halestorm will stay busy in 2019, as the hard rockers have announced a new string of North American tour dates. The trek will set off April 12th and continue through an appearance at Columbus, Ohio’s Sonic Temple Fest in May. Palaye Royale and Beasto Blanco will open on the North American run, which follows a handful of overseas dates. Tickets for the newly announced shows will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. local time Friday, January 25th. Find the full list of tour dates below. You can also grab tickets here. Speaking last year with Heavy Consequence, Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale discussed the #MeToo movement and the treatment of women in the music industry. “I just think that the movement starts where people are brave enough to speak up,” she said. “I think that it will continue to be a ripple effect. I’m proud of the people who are unafraid to step up and say, ‘Hey look, here’s the problems that are happening and here’s where we need to fix things.’ Because, honestly, if there isn’t any communication and we don’t talk about what’s going on, nothing ever changes.” Read Heavy Consequence’s full interview with Lzzy here. “Uncomfortable,” the hard-hitting lead single off Halestorm’s most recent album, Vicious, is up for Best Rock Performance at the 2019 Grammy Awards. The band picked up a Grammy in 2013 for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” for “Love Bites (So Do I).” Halestorm 2019 Tour Dates: 03/09 – Sydney, AU @ Download Sydney 2019/Parramatt Park 03/13 – Auckland, NZ @ Powerstation 03/15 – Wellington, NZ @ Sam Fran 03/21 – Chiba, JP @ Download Festival Japan 2019/Makuhari Messe 04/12 – Ladson, SC @ 98 Rockfest 2019/Exchange Park Fairgrounds 04/18 – Mankato, MN @ Verizon Center * 04/20 – Billings, MT @ Shrine Auditorium * 04/22 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Union Event Center * 04/23 – Boise, ID @ The Revolution Center * 04/25 – Kennewick, WA @ Toyota Center * 04/26 – Vancouver, BC @ Chan Centre * 04/28 – Edmonton, AB @ Northern Jubilee Auditorium * 04/29 – Calgary, AB @ MacEwan Hall * 05/01 – Winnepeg, MB @ Burton Cummings Theatre * 05/03-04 – Mexico City, MX @ Domination Festival 05/05 – Bismarck, ND @ Bismarck Event Center * 05/07 – Rapid City, SD @ Rushmore Plaza Civic Center * 05/09 – Cedar Rapids, IA @ US Cellular Center ^ 05/12 – London, ON @ London Music Hall * 05/13 – Toronto, ON@ Danforth Music Hall * 05/17-19 – Columbus, OH @ Sonic Temple Festival * = with Palaye Royale and Beasto Blanco ^ = with In This Moment, Palaye Royale and Beasto Blanco Alice in Chains' Top 5 Tour Preview: Bring Me the Tool’s Top 5 Music Videos Favorite Setlist.fm Music Moments in Behemoth's Top 5 Songs Source
  15. This June, Morrissey is heading to your living room. On Monday, Funko debuted its forthcoming lineup of POP!s at London’s Toy Fair, and the former Smiths frontman is among the 2019 class, complete with his trademark ‘do and a handful of flowers. Take a look below: Cute, huh? And unlike the real deal, this POP! won’t ever cancel his plans on you, or make you wait 45 minutes, or shame you for eating ham. No, just plop him on the shelf and play your go-to Moz LP nearby. Pre-orders are currently on-going with shipments to go out in June. Though, if Moz isn’t your bag, Funko has an assortment of other musicians, ranging from Billy Idol to Notorious B.I.G. to The Purple One himself. Source
  16. Indie experimentalist John Vanderslice has announced his first album in nearly six years, The Cedars. The 12-track effort is due out April 5th on Native Cat Recordings. The Cedars marks Vanderslice’s 10th LP of original material overall and follows Dagger Beach from 2013 (the same year as his full-album cover of David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs). In the downtime between releases, he founded the Bay Area analog recording studio Tiny Telephone, serving as a full-time record producer. He’s finally back to his own music, however, and he’s sharing our first listen to the effort today. Featuring John McEntire (Tortoise, Stereolab) on drums and synth, “I’ll Wait for You” finds Vanderslice’s voice trying to cut through the buzz, like clarity fighting its way through the haze of addiction. In fact, the song’s lyrics sound like the in-recovery musician reaching out to a friend still battling dependence, unable to fully help with the burden as he still struggles with his own. “It’s a miracle I’m not a drug addict/ But it’s a shame I’m still hard at it/ But damn it sure took you,” he sings. “I got you into this/ And I can’t get you out of this/ ‘Cause I’m always gonna use.” Take a listen below. In a press release, Vanderslice explained that The Cedars takes its inspiration from a plot of land he owns in North California: “I own a small piece of land in very rural West Sonoma and from the tippy top of this land you can see a strange, Mars-like serpentine canyon called The Cedars. Roughly 11×11 square miles in size, it’s a land-locked geological anomaly that has over a dozen endemic trees and plants. It’s only 6 miles away but it takes up a mythic space in my mind, like the perfect sound, the perfect lyric. A lot of this record was written on this land, under the spell of this place.” Digital and physical pre-orders for the album are going on now, and you can peep the tracklist and cover art below.

  17. Last fall, Flight of the Conchords made their long-awaited to television with the HBO special, Live in London. Now, the New Zealand comedy duo have announced a companion live album, due out March 8th via Sub Pop. The home release will be available in a variety of formats, including as a double CD and triple LP. North American LP pre-orders through Sub Pop and select independent retailers will receive a limited “Loser” edition pressed on clear with blue and yellow high melt vinyl, while European pre-orders get a standard clear “Loser” edition vinyl. Recorded at London’s Eventim Apollo, the 22-track album boasts two songs edited out of the HBO special for time, “Carol Brown” and “The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)”. Fan favorites sit alongside seven new songs premiered during the duo’s “Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords Tour”, including the previously released “Father and Son”. The other new songs are “Summer of 1353”, “Stana”, “Seagull”, “Back on the Road”, “Bus Driver”, and “Iain and Deanna”. That latter track, about a steamy and X-rated office romance, has been shared ahead of the release. Take a listen below.

  18. Download | Subscribe via Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Play | Radio Public | Stitcher | RSS Discography is a quarterly podcast chronicling a legendary artist’s catalog album by album, and this season is one for the record books. We’re dropping the needle on The Who: every studio album, live record, single, and solo release from Pete Townshend, Keith Moon, John Entwistle, and Roger Daltrey. Yes, this is no ordinary Who documentary. This is a quest to examine the big picture and discover WHO this legendary band really are. By 1973, The Who were superstars. Their gargantuan rock opera Quadrophenia had given wayward teenagers a mirror with which to find themselves, even though the ensuing tour would be the catalyst for each band member to go a bit off the rails in their own ways. Join host Marc With a C on a sojourn through 1973 to 1976, when Ken Russell’s film adaptation of Tommy took the world by storm and turned lead vocalist Roger Daltrey into a heartthrob for teenyboppers everywhere. During this short window, three-fourths of the band would somehow also find the time to make solo statements, each with varying degrees of success, while Pete would bleed onto the page with confessional works like The Who by Numbers. Brace yourselves for Maximum Discography, as this episode touches on the albums Quadrophenia, Odds & Sods, Two Sides of the Moon, Mad Dog, Ride a Rock Horse, The Who by Numbers, One of the Boys, and even a few soundtrack appearances!

  19. Having been booked to play some high-profile U.S. festival dates in May, Swedish tech-metal mavens Meshuggah will fill in the days between with a brief headlining stateside jaunt featuring support from The Black Dahlia Murder. As previously announced, Meshuggah will perform at the festivals Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, FL; Epicenter in Rockingham, NC; Sonic Temple in Columbus, Ohio; and Chicago Open Air in Bridgeview, IL. Six headlining shows have now been added to the band’s U.S. itinerary, including stops in Atlanta, Boston, and New York City. You can get tickets here.

  20. On March 22nd, American Football are returning with a new album. Their third full-length to date is aptly titled American Football (LP3) and due out through Polyvinyl. “We were all thoughtful about what we wanted to put out there,” Mike Kinsella previously explained of the band’s approach to the new LP versus its predecessor, 2016’s self-titled LP. “Last time, it was figuring out how to use all of our different arms. This time, we were like – Ok we have these arms, let’s use them.” The veteran emo rockers teased the forthcoming record with last month’s “Silhouettes”. Another offering, “Uncomfortably Numb”, has been unboxed today and features guest contributions from Paramore singer Hayley Williams. Check out the collaborative track below via its official music video. Helmed by Atiba Jefferson, it features American Football band members as well as Workaholics actor Blake Anderson.

  22. Despite having over 35 films to his name since 1983, two of which being 1989’s Do the Right Thing and 1992’s Malcolm X, Spike Lee has never been nominated for an Oscar for Best Director. That was, until today. This morning, the Academy awarded the Brooklyn filmmaker with a Best Director nomination for last year’s BlacKkKlansman, which also received five other nominations including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. Needless to say, he was quite thrilled, as you can see by his reaction via his own Instagram: Previously, Lee had been nominated for Best Original Screenplay in 1990 for Do the Right Thing and once again in 1998 for Best Documentary Feature for 4 Little Girls. In 2015, he received an Academy Honorary Award. In December, Consequence of Sound named Lee their Filmmaker of the Year. Revisit our exhaustive interview with the veteran in which he discusses the ways in which we should approach nostalgia and the current presidential administration. Winners of the 2019 Academy Awards will be announced on Sunday, February 24th. Click here to see the full list of nominees and stay tuned for our complete coverage in the weeks to come.

  24. Origins is a recurring new music feature that tasks an artist we like a chance with sharing what inspired their latest song. Following up on the release of 2017’s Doris and the Diggers, Scott Kannberg’s first Spiral Stairs LP since 2009, the founding Pavement member is back with another solo album. Called We Wanna Be Hyp-No-Tized, the “feel-good” LP arrives on March 22nd via Nine Mile Records and Coolin’ By Sound. “To me We Wanna Be Hyp-No-Tized feels like the records I’ve been listening to and the records I’ve been digging and aspire to sound like,” Kannberg says in a press release. “In my early-twenties I felt like I knew everything — I always knew about new bands before everyone else — but that kind of closed off a lot of bands that I didn’t give much credence to, and now I’m a bit older and it’s, like, ‘Wow, how did I miss that?’” He cites artists like Nick Lowe, Jim Lowe, and Van Morrison as influences on the album.”I even tried to sing like Van Morrison on a lot of the songs,” he added, “like how he repeats himself a lot. Those are the kind of bands I would never have liked in 1984… or 1994… or 2004 really.” The album was originally built upon four cuts that didn’t make it on the last Spiral Stairs record, which he elaborated upon. Kannberg also penned new songs alongside Posies bassist Matthew Harris, multi-instrumentalist Tim Regan, and Kelley Stoltz, as well as drummer Jim Lindsay, a touring member of Kannberg’s other band, Preston School of Industry. Today, Consequence Of Sound shares the album’s rip-roaring first single, “Hyp-No-Tized”, which embodies the aforementioned “feel-good” vibes with some bouncy brass and slick riffs. Hear it below.

Read on as Kannberg details a few of the other iconic artists who informed “Hyp-No-Tized”. Jimmy Barnes and Cold Chisel: They love ’em in Australia. The song was originally called “I Wanna Headbutt Barnesy” ’cause that’s what I want to do every time I hear their songs. Mark E. Smith: Actually finished vocals the day he died. Kelley Stoltz had a big framed photo of him and I sang with tears. He would’ve hated the song. Bryan Ferry: Bryan Ferry, photo by Lior Phillips I tried to write a song that could’ve ended up on The Bride Stripped Bare. 1978 LA west side vibes! Great videos of the songs from this record. “Burning Down the House”: Great Talking Heads song with the second-best solo breakdown in rock. First was the solo in “How She Boogaloo’d it” on Wild Honey. Trumpsters, Religion, Netflix…: Lyrics reflect our need to be numbed. I’d rather play golf! Source
  25. Black Panther has already recalibrated the way Hollywood views its product, proving that a film starring a predominantly black cast can not only become a cultural phenomena, but a box office smash. With today’s announcement of the 2019 Academy Awards nominations, it’s now redefined how comic book movies are regarded in terms of classic filmmaking appraisal, as the Marvel Studios epic has become the first superhero film to receive a Best Picture nomination. The writing was already on the wall: Black Panther received recognition from the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Awards, the Producers Guild, the Writers Guild, and the Screen Actors guild. But the Oscars are another level of prestige all together, and the film’s inclusion alongside nominees like The Favourite, A Star is Born, Roma, and Vice is a landmark moment. It was 10 years ago that the Motion Picture Academy chose to expand their Best Picture category from five to up to 10 nominees. The move came after many criticized the Academy for refusing to give Christopher Nolan and The Dark Knight recognition in the major categories (that is, Best Director and Picture) despite its eight other nominations. (Read: After Avengers: Infinity War, What’s Next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe?) At first, the shift led to films like Inception, District 9, and UP — movies popular amongst audiences but not as high-brow as those usually considered Oscar-worthy — appearing on nominations lists. Eventually, however, a status quo seemed to return, as popular blockbusters failed to break through. The Academy proposed a new “popular movie” category last year to rectify this, though it quickly backed down amid outcry over the ill-defined stipulations. Critics were also concerned films like Black Panther or A Star is Born, crossover hits that were both box office and critical successes, would be relegated to the second-tier award. Superhero tales like Wonder Woman and Logan previously failed to make the Best Picture cut (though the former’s sloppy third act arguably excludes it from consideration and the latter did become the first superhero movie to receive a writing category nod), but it’s fitting that Black Panther would be the one to bring such recognition to the genre. Beyond its status as the third-highest grossing domestic film of all time ($700,059,566, unadjusted for inflation), it’s a cultural milestone. The movie connected with a historically underrepresented demographic without pandering and while maintaining a wide appeal; for the Academy to recognize that and not simply see it as a comic book blockbuster is a notable moment. Even if you argued that cultural relevance played into the film’s nomination as much as its actual quality (it’s certainly the first nominee to feature CGI War Rhinos), the nomination widens the interpretation of what defines the Best Picture. Black Panther received seven nominations overall, including Best Original Score (Ludwig Goransson), Best Original Song (Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All the Stars”), Best Production Design (Hannah Beachler and Jay Hart), Best Costume Design (Ruth E. Carter), Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing. It may still be an underdog for the big prize, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see the movie take home some gold on when the 91st Academy Awards air Sunday, February 24th on ABC.
