Le prochain film de Sofia Coppola , The Bling Ring , fait déjà beaucoup parlé de lui. Outre sa présentation en ouverture du Festival de Cannes qui se déroule ces jours-ci, le film marque également par sa bande originale qui frappera nos disquaires quelques jours avant la sortie officielle du film dans les salles obscures le 12 Juin. On retrouve sur cette compilation un excellent panel d'artistes qui ont marqué nos derniers mois d'actu à l'image de M.I.A. , Kanye West , Sleigh Bells , Azealia Banks , Phoenix , [...]
Surprise, surprise: director Sofia Coppola ( Lost in Translation , The Virgin Suicides ) has put together another hip-as-hell soundtrack for tweens, teens, and shattered twentysomethings. This time around, she's snagged the likes of Kanye West , Frank Ocean , deadmau5 , M.I.A. , Sleigh Bells , Azealia Banks, Can (!), and her hubby's band, Phoenix , whose tunes will sugarcoat her latest picture, The Bling Ring . What's more, she's recruited Oneohtrix Point Never's Daniel Lopatin to score the film. For this project, Lopatin's again working [...]

Natasha Kmeto LFTF Mix “Detroit, New York, LA, London, Ibiza, and Berlin all loom large in the world of dance music—but Portland, OR has managed to hold its own. The city gave us Philip Sherburne, the high priest of electronic music writing, and has recently fostered a vibrant community of dance music visionaries, from the lo-fi house throwbacks leaking out of the Ecstasy Collective to the swirling indie bass jams offered up by the Dropping Gems crew. The latter group has been gearing up to release a new EP from Natasha Kmeto, a Portland-based singer/songwriter and [...]
The RYE RYE 's mixtape has surfaced and it includes a new mp3 AFTER PARTY which reminds I should listen to the GO ! TEAM on the walk to Sunday lunch.
Corridor Podcast , a podcast about Baltimore/D.C. music hosted by journalist Kelsi Loos, recently invited me to appear as a guest, to play and talk about some of my favorite Baltimore songs of the year. So I picked songs from 5 local releases on my top 50 albums of 2012 (by Among Wolves, War On Women, Dave Fell, DDm/Rye Rye and Jumpcuts), and at the end talked about my band Western Blot and played our song "Child of Divorce." The podcast is available on iTunes as well as on the Corridor site.

With only days left until the end of 2012, the Internet is full of best-of essays and lists and embeddable Spotify playlists that reaffirm critics' and tastemakers' street credit and perpetuate the myth that most people writing about music actually have any kind of significant impact on the way that pop music is created, packaged, and sold. I won't bore you with such gas. Instead, here are some fun superlatives that summarize the world of pop this year, for those of you who may not have kept up with this realm. These are undeniable touchstones — meaning that should you, [...]
Oh, Rolling Stone . Sometimes you make it so easy. We try not to spend too much of our time nitpicking the amusingly out-of-touch pontifications of Jann Wenner's empire, but occasionally something comes along that annoys us so much that it's hard not to react. So it was recently, when the magazine's editors came back from the mountain with stone tablets purporting to contain "The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs of All Time." In fairness, reading RS for hip hop recommendations is like reading Trucking Monthly for advice on bicycles, but even so, if [...]

La petite protégée de M.I.A. nous offre un rework de l'incontestablement très célèbre piste de Kanye West et Jay-Z , Niggas in Paris . Renommé pour l'occasion In My Zone , Rye Rye reprend une partie du rap de Kanye West en fond sonore avec bien évidement un travail au niveau de la partie musicale bien loin du titre original.
Tonight Kreayshawn's sold out "Group Hug" -tour together with Chippy Nonstop, Honey Cocaine and Rye Rye kicks off in Oklahoma City (for all dates and venues check here ) and Young Klout Gang's finest a.k.a Chippy has kept herself busy these past months while this site has been trapped in limbo. Besides featuring on the Free School-produced 'Ch00k Ch00k Tare', one of the best tracks off Kreaywhawn's album debut, Chippy has also dropped a new EP called "Money Dance 101" consisting of five great tunes all produced by DJ Two Stacks and Grave Goods (download here ).

It's hard to type this because of all the tears filling my eyes, but Italian production duo Crookers have decided to retire the long-time Fidget House alias. Obviously I'm not crying, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a fan of, or in some regard influenced by, the Crookers; especially in the height of the blog era (yeah, talk to me about it). They had a fun vibe about them and based on the statement from their website, more good times are to be expected. For old times sake... [...]
DJ A-BE , Get Lifted Tonight's designated event DJ and writer, recently recorded a trap mix for your listening pleasure. This "amateur" DJ from Brooklyn, as he humbly describes himself, takes inspiration from turntablists DJ AM and A-Trak , who “definitely know how to rock a party”. Although he grew up listening to hip-hop and Chicago house, he admits “a guilty pleasure for pop music” as well. You’ll see Abe lugging around his heavy Technic 1200s to parties in and around his university in the Providence area as well as to gigs in NYCs’s niche [...]
By Michel Dussack New York City is always filled with free concerts during the summer, and 2012 has been no exception to that rule. This past Saturday, Converse sponsored a free show featuring Mr. Dream, Jel, Rye Rye, and Sleigh Bells at Hudson River Park which is right on the Hudson River at Pier 63. Being that Sleigh Bells is a band that I'll drop anything to see, I made sure to grab a pair of tickets early on. The ...
“Let’s celebrate the aquababes ,” Azealia Banks demands on her recently released Fantasea mixtape — and what better way to pay homage to Banks’ recent infatuation with all things under-da-sea than to host a party fit for a mermaid queen? That’s exactly what the 20-year-old rapper did Saturday evening at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood with her Mermaid Ball . Riding the wave of buzz following a wildly successful New York incarnation of the show, Banks transformed the otherwise inconspicuous venue [...]
Good news this week for fans of UK experimental trio Factory Floor — after nearly a decade of waiting, the band are finally putting out an actual full-length debut album. It's due early next year through DFA, and we're betting it's gonna be excellent. This news, along with the release of Purity Ring's long-awaited first LP next week (we've heard it, and it's not bad at all) got us thinking about debut albums that have proven worth a lengthy wait. Most bands chunk out an album as soon as they get a sniff of a record deal; these bands didn't, [...]

Photos by G. New York loves Scissor Sisters so much that the audience didn't get enough on the first night, so the Sisters flipped it over and grilled it up again! They played the second of two shows (the final US date on their 2012 Summer tour) at Terminal 5 in Manhattan on July 7, [...]
