What was already one of my most anticipated hip-hop albums just became even greater. In a new interview with NPR, Nas revealed that he’s working with Timbaland, Swizz Beatz and No I.D. for his follow up to 2012’s fantastic release, Life Is Good.
Our very first weekender I was locked outside of the van half naked in the middle of nowhere at 3am. It was hilarious for everyone inside the van I’m sure, but for me it was one of those “Mom get me a grey hound ticket. I’m coming home!” moments.
The guys from Copeland will be chatting in this thread at 8pm EST. It’s been over five years since the band released new music, so make it worth their while. Ask them about their new album, Ixora, what they’ve been up to over the past couple years with their side projects, the band’s future and more. And when the chat’s over, be sure to head over to their webstore and pre-order the new album.
Deadmau5 seemed to take issue with Arcade Fire throwing a few jabs EDM’s way the past few weeks. During their Coachella set, Win Butler shouted out “to all the bands playing instruments this weekend” — and the replies via Twitter from Deadmau5 range from, “arcade fire needs to settle down. some dudes devote their lives to instruments, others to electronic composition by cpu, dafuqs yer problem?” to “inb4 some fucking hipster throws a hackeysack at me.” This is way cooler than when I get called out by disgraced band members on my Facebook page.
Sloss Minor, formerly known as Death In The Park and featuring Andy Jackson from Hot Rod Circuit, have released their debut music video for the song “Duffle Bag” — it’s in the replies. It comes from their newly released album, G Major Neutral Zero, available now on iTunes.
For anyone who’s curious, this is a short Fleet Foxes update - been a while! So, after the last round of touring, I decided to go back to school. I never got an undergraduate degree, and this felt like the right time to both see what that was about and to try something new after a while in the touring / recording lifestyle. I moved to New York and enrolled at Columbia, and I’ve mostly been doing that, but I’m working on songs and excited for whatever happens next musically, even if it’s down the line. Hope all is well out there.
No Sleep Records has signed Aviator. The band will release their debut full-length album later this year. A new song teaser is below.
Of all the experiences weve had in the last 5 years, joining the No Sleep team is an all-time high, says guitarist Mat Morin. We couldnt have asked for a more supportive and more passionate group of guys to release this record.
