‘Jimi: All Is by My Side’: Photos From the Set of the Hendrix Biopic

August 23rd, 2014 · Guitar

John Ridley earned his first Academy Award this year for his 12 Years a Slave screenplay, and now he’s in the director’s chair for Jimi: All Is by My Side, a biopic tracing a year in the life of Jimi Hendrix with Outkast’s André Benjamin in the title role. Scenes take place everywhere from New York’s barely remembered Cheetah Club to the famous Monterey Pop Festival, and the film will receive a limited release on September 26th. Here, one month early, take a look at shots from the set — photos featuring not just Benjamin as Hendrix but Imogen Poots as Linda Keith, Hayley Atwell as Kathy Etchingham and Ruth Negga as Ida.

Everyone remembers the Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke twerk-heard-around-the-world from last year, but how many recall that Justin Timberlake‘s “Mirrors” won Video of the Year?

Martina McBride, Billy Ray Cyrus Salute the Beatles in L.A.

August 23rd, 2014 · Guitar

By Andrew Leahey |
August 22, 2014

Fifty years ago this month, the Beatles met Bob Dylan, tried marijuana for the first time and launched a sold-out tour of the United States. The summer tour took them to 23 different cities, including Los Angeles, where the band played the Hollywood Bowl on August 23, 1964. It was a deafening, challenging show, with the Fab Four doing their best to serenade 17,000 screaming fans without the use of stage monitors. Even so, the gig marked another victory for the so-called British Invasion, and a live release in 1977 — which included six songs from that first Hollywood Bowl appearance, along with cuts from a follow-up show in 1965 — proved that the Beatles could pack a punch even when they couldn’t hear themselves.

Martina McBride

This weekend marks the half-century anniversary of that first L.A. appearance. To celebrate, a genre-spanning group of Beatles followers — including country crooners Martina McBride and Billy Ray Cyrus — will host three concerts at the Hollywood Bowl. The music kicks off tonight, with Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart serving as the ringmaster of all three performances. Michelle Branch, Mary Lambert, Liv Warfield, Allen Stone, Australian hit maker Vanessa Amorosi and The Newlywed Game TV host Bob Eubanks (who produced the Beatles’ original appearance at the Hollywood Bowl) will also contribute throughout the weekend.

Although the lineup will slightly change every night, the shows on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings will all include the Beatles’ original setlist for August 23, 1964, from the opening number, “Twist and Shout,” to the set-closing cover of Little Richard’s “Long Tall Sally.” The second half of each gig will focus on songs that hadn’t been written by that point, including “Strawberry Fields,” “Hey Jude” and “Blackbird.”

Run the Jewels Enlist Zack de la Rocha, Travis Barker for Star-Studded New Album

August 21st, 2014 · Guitar

August 21, 2014

Killer Mike and El-P will release their second record as Run the Jewels, descriptively titled RTJ2, on October 28th. The album features numerous guests, including Rage Against the Machine mouthpiece Zack de la Rocha and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, among others yet to be announced, and will be available on CD, LP and digital release alongside a free download.

Killer Mike and El-P of Run the Jewels

The duo has heralded the record with a new single, “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” which pulls no punches in the opening verse, where Killer Mike raps, “Last album fooled ‘em/ Proved that we was fucking brutal/ I’m talking crazy, half-past the clock is cuckoo,” over a trudging, bassy beat.

Before the group puts out the new album via Mass Appeal Records, which Killer Mike declared “the best rap group album since RTJ1!” in a statement, it will release another new song via Adult Swim’s Singles Series on September 15th.

Outside of Run the Jewels, Killer Mike has been voicing his feelings about the murder of Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager whom Ferguson, Missouri police shot dead earlier this month. Previously, he posted an Instagram of Brown’s grieving parents and accompanied it with a powerful essay explaining how it affected him.

Mike recently appeared on CNN, posted in two parts, to discuss in greater detail why Brown’s death has struck such a chord with Americans. “This seems very gratuitous,” Mike said. “There is no gun found on the child. If there are no burns or gunpowder, it says they weren’t in close proximity…. The consciousness of this country does not agree with this shooting. I don’t think it agreed with Sean Bell. I don’t think it agreed with Amadou Diallo. I don’t think it agreed with [Eric] Garner. I don’t think it agreed, but I think that this is a child.

“This was a college-bound child. This was a child that had done childish stuff. Children shoplift. Children act like gangsters and robbers. Children do stupid stuff. But no one could go to bed the night of finding out about this young man’s murder comfortable that a child had been shot up to or more than six times in a defensive position.”

The 22-year-old singer has also just released a video for the title track, giving fans a look at the performer and his band both onstage and behind the scenes.

Of the material on the new project, which was co-written with such Music City luminaries as Craig Wiseman, Luke Laird and James Dean Hicks, Crouse says, “My songs will always be about honest experience. I always want to be the one telling my story.”

The album features the Massachusetts native’s singles “Don’t Tell Me” and “If You Want Some,” along with fan favorite, “Why God Made Love Songs,” and the track Crouse notes as his personal favorite, “Ruby Puts Her Red Dress On.”

Crouse celebrated the release of the new album with a performance, live chat with fans and autograph signing at the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday, the day the new project was officially released.

Aphex Twin’s New Album ‘Syro’ Will Be Out Next Month

August 21st, 2014 · Guitar

By Daniel Kreps |
August 21, 2014

Earlier this week, we learned that Aphex Twin would end his 13-year hiatus with a new LP titled Syro, but other than a usually cryptic track list, Richard D. James didn’t offer up much more information. Thankfully, Warp Records helped fill in the blanks by revealing that Syro would be released on September 23rd. Warp also unveiled the Designer Republic’s insane album cover for Syro, which is essentially just an itemized cost breakdown of Aphex Twin’s previous promotional obligations, like “The Making of Windowlicker” and “Hotel in Seattle for album playback meeting.”

Aphex Twin fans are a passionate bunch, as we learned when a rare, unreleased 1994 LP by James’ Caustic Window side project somehow became available for purchase and fans raised over $67,000 through a Kickstarter campaign to buy it. However, the fanbase is going to be clawing at one another after Warp revealed that only 400 limited-edition Syro box sets will be produced “due to the labour-intensive hand-crafted print process.” In order to buy a box set, fans must enter a lottery, and then 200 lucky Aphex Twin fans will have the opportunity to drop $400 on this special Syro. For everyone else, the album will also be released on CD, triple-vinyl and digitally.

As evidenced by the absurd Syro cover, James is having a laugh with the whole promotional process, and the album’s press release cements that: It’s like if someone took the Aphex Twin Wikipedia page, fed it into Google Translator set to Russian, then translated that Russian into Mandarin, and then back into English. One thing we do learn from the press release, however, is that James claims to have “unreleased music under several thousand monikers.” Read it for yourself below:

T.I. on Ferguson Aftermath: ‘America Has Created a Monster’

August 21st, 2014 · Guitar

By Ryan Reed |
August 20, 2014

As protests rage on in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by a local police officer, debates about racial profiling and law enforcement ethics continue to dominate national headlines. On Tuesday, rapper T.I. added his thoughts to the conversation with a pair of powerful Instagram posts, writing that “America has created a monster.”

Related

Ferguson man holds hands in the air.

In the first post, T.I. says the Ferguson tragedy and the country’s current racial tensions are “the result of ignoring and mishandling an already fragile-spirited, recently enslaved, presently oppressed race/generation of people.” He adds that African-Americans “created their own” culture, religion and traditions after being “brought to this place,” saying, ”our people have had an increasing lack of opportunities for generations.

“How long can you expect a nation/race/generation of people to be blatantly disrespected?” the rapper writes. “Spoken to and treated with arrogant tones of insignificance. Our fathers, uncles, brothers and role models were killed and imprisoned more often than educated. Now look at us. Our friends and relatives murdered and cast aside without thought, as though your human life is more valuable than ours. How long can that go on without consequence?”

The second post is similarly worded but even more moving, as T.I. calls for an end to the “insanity” still raging in the Missouri town. “Look at us,” he writes. “Rebels without a cause. Soldiers without a general. A lost generation. Ready for War. No strategy, no training. Armed only with our grief, aggravation, and passionate disdain for our treatment in America. Sick and tired of everything…especially ourselves.” 

Later, he expresses his disgust at going into “Fuck-it” mode (“‘Fuck the world, ‘fuck the police, and even ‘fuck’ the wishes and requests of a grieving mother, father, family who lost a son…whose memory they would NOT like to see tarnished by OUR negative ACTIONS/DECISIONS”). 

“Nah, G, that ain’t the code,” he writes. “This ain’t da way. . . One question to MY PEOPLE: What are we changing…Really? Look at us. Destroying our own community, but continuing to spend money in theirs. Refusing education…revolving in the same cycle of ignorance instead of evolving out of it. . . I do have a fun fact for you. Insanity is…going about things the same way, expecting a different result.”

Meanwhile, Devonté Hynes, the eclectic indie-funk artist who records under the moniker Blood Orange, expressed his shock and horror in an interview with OkayPlayer

“You don’t want it to be real, but it is,” Hynes said. “And I don’t know what’s happening or what’s going to happen. To me, it feels like I’ve been getting poked all my life. . . and people are just getting tired. It feels like you associate time with learning. I think in our culture, it’s a real shock that that doesn’t add up in everything. Just because the Civil Rights Act was 50 years ago doesn’t mean that we’re 50 times past it.”

12 Great Coldplay Songs You Probably Don’t Know

August 21st, 2014 · Guitar

By Tom Mallon |
August 20, 2014

Given their ubiquity on modern-rock radio and relentless stream of hits, it’s easy to forget that Coldplay make more than just arena-sized singles. Digging deeper into the dark corners of their discography reveals a different side to the band, showing off bizarre detours, tributes to their influences and glimpses of Coldplays that could have been. Listen along via Beats Music here.

“Such a Rush”
Found on: Safety EP / The Blue Room EP
In 1998, every band in the U.K. with more than one guitar was automatically entered into the “Next Radiohead” sweepstakes. Coldplay’s debut EP/glorified demo Safety put them solidly in the running: Instead of being “Fitter Happier” they were “Bigger Stronger,” a Bends-worthy slice of dissonant, modern-life-fearing rock. But final track “Such a Rush,” building from a stark acoustic and chiming electric piano to a fiery, crashing conclusion, hinted at the bigger things ahead.

“Easy to Please”
Found on: Brothers and Sisters EP
Before bringing Brian Eno onboard as their producer, Coldplay’s sonic experiments were few and far between: They were more focused on clean and pretty than on bizarre. “Easy to Please” is an early exception, a barely-strummed acoustic song awash in a sea of amorphous found sound.

“See You Soon”
Found on: The Blue Room EP / Live 2003
Considered by many hardcore fans to be one of the band’s best B-sides, both versions of the elegiac “See You Soon” are worth seeking out. What seems like a beautiful, stripped-down love song on the surface quickly grows sniper-rifle sinister: “In a bulletproof vest, with the windows all closed/I’ll be doing my best, and I’ll see you soon/In a telescope lens.” The Blue Room presents the song as a claustrophobic acoustic ballad, but it really shines on Live 2003, where a slower tempo and Jonny Buckland’s plaintive whale-song guitar make it truly haunting. 

Guy Berryman and Chris Martin of Coldplay in England, 2003.

“I Bloom Blaum”
Found on: “In My Place” single
A Rush of Blood to the Head is where Coldplay’s mastery of U2-level bombast really began to take off. So it’s easy to see why “I Bloom Blaum” (Icelandic for “the blue people”) didn’t make the album; its delicate, finger-picked folk would be more at home on a John Martyn record than sitting alongside “Clocks.”

“One I Love”
Found on: “In My Place” single / Live 2003
They may be borrowing their title from R.E.M., but “One I Love” is a byproduct of Coldplay’s love affair with Echo the Bunnymen. Coldplay made no secret of their admiration for the band, covering “Lips Like Sugar” regularly in 2002 and 2003. “One I Love” strips away the Bunnymen’s goth trappings, turns up the “soar” knob and recasts them as the arena-rock stars that Coldplay were fast becoming.

“1.36″
Found on: “The Scientist” single
“1.36″ is an oddity in the Coldplay catalog. It’s one of their only songs that could truly be said to “rock,” sporting a filthy PJ Harvey groove… and appears on the single for one of their least rocking songs, “The Scientist.” Ash guitarist Tim Wheeler guests, as does friend/superfan and Shaun of the Dead star Simon Pegg, who was “roped in” to shout the “YEAHs” near the end, an accomplishment of which he is “inordinately proud.”

“Crest of Waves”
Found on: “Clocks” single
The smash “Clocks” set the template that would drive Coldplay’s hits for the next few years: circular piano figures, swimmy synths, barely-there guitars, ooh-aah hooks. The “Clocks” single also contains a look through a door that they decided not to walk through with “Crests of Waves”: straightforward guitar rock. Like Live 2003‘s “Moses,” “Crests” recalls the glory days of late-Eighties alt-rock, and shows what the band might’ve sounded like if Martin hadn’t discovered that synthesizer.

“The World Turned Upside Down”
Found on: “Fix You” single
Chris Martin talked up the influence of krautrock on XY, even borrowing from Kraftwerk for the hook of “Talk,” but the album used the genre’s color palette more than its building blocks. This leftover from the XY sessions gives a glimpse at a Coldplay (almost) seduced by the motorik pulse. “World” plays like an immediate-gratification version of Wilco’s “Spiders (Kidsmoke)”: Will Champion and Guy Berryman lock into a metronomic hypno-thud while Jonny Buckland ticks away, but Chris Martin can’t stay restrained for long. Where Wilco waited seemingly forever to break out on “Spiders,” Martin can’t resist the lure of a huge chorus, going majestic just after the 1:30 mark.

“Things I Don’t Understand”
Found on: “Speed of Sound” single
Bassist Guy Berryman can often be overlooked with his non-flashy playing and Coldplay’s reliance on piano. On “Things I Don’t Understand,” he steps up Peter Hook-style, leading the melody on bass. New Order gets less mentions for influencing XY than they deserve, but this track pays proper tribute. 

Coldplay at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards.

“Prospekt’s March/Poppyfields”
Found on: Prospekt’s March EP
The constant, Eno-mandated stylistic shifts of Viva la Vida didn’t leave much room for the quiet, scaled-back Coldplay of old, which makes “Prospekt’s March” a treat for old-school fans. Released on the bonus disc of the special edition and later on its own EP, this lush, atmospheric track reminds fans that Coldplay are still masters of the tender ballad. 

“The Goldrush”
Found on: “Life in Technicolor II” single
You might find yourself moved or have your soul searched when listening to Coldplay, but you’re not necessarily going to get in a few laughs. This is what makes “The Goldrush” the weirdest track in their entire discography. It stretches the definition of “great song,” but it’s a rare track where it sounds like the band is having a great time making it. Drummer Will Champion sings, Chris Martin giggles through the background and shouts out instructions and the band joins the likes of Talking Heads and U2 by getting Brian Eno in on gang vocals.

“Christmas Lights”
Found on: “Christmas Lights” single
Given their unflagging earnestness, it’s amazing that Coldplay made it over a decade before recording a Christmas song. This digital-only one-off single appeared shortly before Christmas 2010 and starts off as the biggest bummer since “Christmas Shoes,” with Martin lamenting: “Christmas night, another fight/Tears we cried a flood/Got all kinds of poison in/Poison in my blood.” Before long, the magic of Christmas takes over and it’s choirs all around. The seriousness of the song is offset by the whimsical video, which features Simon Pegg as a violin-playing Elvis impersonator.

Man Dies After Alleged Altercation at Hank Williams Jr. Show

August 21st, 2014 · Guitar

By Rolling Stone |
August 20, 2014

A concertgoer at a Sunday night Hank Williams Jr. concert in Michigan died after a tragic fall in the concourse of the DTE Energy Music Theatre about an hour northwest of Detroit. The fall occurred after the victim, 55-year-old Robert Kobe, was apparently pushed by a 15-year-old family friend, according to the Detroit Free Press. Kobe struck his head on the pavement and was rushed to a local hospital, where he died on Tuesday.

According to comments from the victim’s son, the incident appears to have been a tragic accident. The police investigation, however, is still ongoing. The performance by Williams, famous for such songs as “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” and “A Country Boy Can Survive,” went on as planned.

Kobe’s death is just the latest incident to mar country concerts this summer. In July, an 18-year-old man was arrested for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl on the lawn of the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts, during a performance by Keith Urban. More than 50 other arrests were reported at the concert, and 46 fans required medical treatment for alcohol-related illnesses. Also in July, a 22-year-old fan was found dead in a nearby landfill after vanishing during a Jason Aldean concert in Cleveland; while a woman at a Brad Paisley concert in San Diego alleged discrimination over her breastfeeding of her child after she was asked to leave the pit area in front of the stage. A June stadium concert by Luke Bryan at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh resulted in more than 150 emergency calls.

Tame Impala Plagiarism Accuser: ‘It Was a Joke’

August 20th, 2014 · Guitar

By Jason Newman |
August 20, 2014

The authors of an article accusing Tame Impala of plagiarizing Argentinian pop star Pablo Ruiz that went viral earlier this week now say the story was written as a joke and should not be taken seriously.

Related

kevin parker tame impala bonnaroo

Chilean music site Rata published the article earlier this month, claiming that the Australian psych rock group’s biggest hit “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” was lifted from Ruiz’s 1989 song “Océano.” While a side-by-side video in the post shows only a dubious, tangential connection between the two songs, the post began to receive pickup and spread to multiple, international music and pop culture sites.

“It was a joke,” site editors Raúl Álvarez and Patricio Pérez tell Rolling Stone. “We were at a party and had that idea. Curiously, it was viralized pretty fast. We never thought we’d had this impact, and we’re very surprised about it.”

In a new article written earlier this week detailing how widespread the original post went, Álvarez and Pérez wrote, “Things sometimes take an unexpected turn that you never expect. What started as a joke went viral thanks to the magic of the Internet.”

When Rolling Stone reached out to the band for comment, Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker simply replied, “This is a joke, right?”

Yes, though it may have real-world consequences for the band. Ruiz spoke to ESPN Radio Argentina (via Rata) after the post was published and said, according to the site, “Obviously there is plagiarism. Not if you have done it on purpose or not, but there are seven bars that are equal to my song.” Ruiz added that he would consult with lawyers before deciding on his next move.

“He thought our ‘research’ was accurate in proving the similarities between both songs,”Álvarez and Pérez say.

Asked if they would feel guilty if Tame Impala is forced to defend themselves in court, the site’s editor said, “Of course we think it’s funny, but we hope there are no charges against Tame Impala. We actually like them a lot.”

Tame Impala recently announced a mini-tour this November that will include South American stops. Ruiz told ESPN Radio that he would be interested in performing with the band when they play BUE Fest in Buenos Aries on November 24th. 

The group released Live Versions, a nine-track live set taken from a Chicago concert, last month. In a press release, Parker said he hand-picked the songs based on how different they sounded from the studio versions. The album was originally released as a limited-edition vinyl for Record Store Day and became the event’s highest-selling release.

Tame Impala Tour Dates

November 9 –  New York, NY @ Beacon Theatre
November 12 – Los Angeles, CA @ Shrine Auditorium
November 13 -Las Vegas, NV @ Brooklyn Bowl
