Daily Round-Up For January 10th, 2013
Why hello there! Here’s a round-up of all the news of the day in the worldwide music scene!
Here’s a new track from Guards. You can listen to it over at Oh So Fresh.
How to Destroy Angels have announced a new album and begun streaming a new track. You can check it out at Consequence of Sound.
Here’s a new track from The Growlers hosted by Everybody Taste. Their new album is coming out soon!
Here’s a new track from Victories at Sea. You can check it out at Oh So Fresh music.
The first legitimate fake Coachella lineup got released. Stereogum has the link to what might have been a pretty awesome lineup. But sadly, it has some holes that are too good.
Hudson Mohawke, one-half of the indie and bass-face loved progressive electronic/hip-hop duo TNGHT, has released a new track. Without a doubt, these two producers (Mohawke and his partner in crime Lunice) are on the forefront of this massive and exponentially growing musical scene built around the trap subgenre. And they have nowhere to go but up! You can listen to the new song as look for others like it over at my favorite music blog, The Music Ninja. Mohawke’s new song is called “Chimes.”
Here’s a new track from Stevie Crooks. You can listen to it on their Soundcloud.
Check out this new track from Foxygen. It’s hosted over at Consequence of Sound.
Thurston Moore’s new band have announced a new album and supporting tour
Here’s a new video from Childish Gambino. He had a record year last year and is looking to hit the ground running in 2013.
Justin Timberlake has announced/hinted that he will release new music. Story at Consequence of Sound.
The 2013 South by Southwest Festival has announced they will be adding Vampire Weekend, Local Natives, and Eagles of Death to their lineup. It’s shaping up to be an amazing concert!
Retail behemoth Amazon have made one more step on their quest to take over iTunes as leaders in the online music business – today they released a business model that suggested pairing digital downloads of music files to be paired with every sale of a physical CD – essentially one-upping iTunes’s classic and pioneering method of downloading songs. You can read the whole story at USA Today.
Sadly, David Bowie’s new single will for some reason not be eligible to chart or become a #1 hit.
Apparently a few indie labels have jumped at the opportunity to release the Beatles’ track “Love Me Do,” as it became public domain today.
The Oscar nominations were released today! Amidst the suprises, snubs, and watercooler talk among the movies, the music category also was a point for extensive conversation. Adele got an Oscar nomination, and Arcade Fire and Fiona Apple got snubbed.
There’s also a new track from the band Empty Pools. You can listen to it on their Soundcloud.
And that’s all the news we have for today folks! Hope you had a great day! Have questions, comments, suggestions, or love? As always, you can contact me through email at [email protected], or through Twitter @robincopple1. If you like I can include your message in a future edition of the Round-Up!
