Rooster Roundabout: This week’s music highlights
By Mark Lopez [ Fri Sep 13 2013 3:54 PM ]
After weeks of teasing and enticing fans, Arcade Fire have now unleashed their first single from their upcoming double LP, Reflektor (out Oct. 29). The title track is given an extended treat as it has gotten not one, but two videos. One is an interactive video where the viewer can take part in the visual experience, while the other is a traditional video (no interaction there) that contains a lot of reflective surfaces. But I'm sure you knew that.
Did you know that Elvis Costello and The Roots were collaborating? I didn't! Now that I do, this is definitely something worth looking into, and if you head over to NPR, you can hear the fruits of their labor, titled Wise Up Ghost, in its entirety. Or you can wait for it to hit stores on Sept. 17.
Just in case you were feeling that lingering spirit, that beckoning call of All Hallows Eve, that grotesque curiosity of the macabre … Franz Ferdinand's got you covered. Probably NSFW.
If you live in the Brooklyn area and have a baby that you think might be the next big DJ to hit the airwaves, contact Natalie Elizabeth Weiss. She runs a baby DJ school. No joke.
Judging from Janelle Monáe's performance on David Letterman, if she ever comes to Albuquerque, there's no way in hell I'm missing that show. Monáe's latest effort, The Electric Lady, hit the music-sphere this past week, and you can catch her performance below:
It looks like some more Beatles memorabilia can now be added to your collection in the form of their widely lauded performance/
Sky Ferreira has finally given a release date for her debut full-length effort, titled Night Time, My Time, and it'll hit the streets on Oct. 29. I became obsessed with her single “Lost In My Bedroom.” It's that sort of infectious pop that just grabs hold and can be listened to over and over again. But you don't have to take my word for it. Give it a listen.
Ty Segall is relentless. If he's not releasing multiple albums in a year or starting various projects with other musicians, he's, well … starting another project called FUZZ. They're coming out with a self-titled album on Oct. 1 via In The Red, and they've released another snippet from said upcoming album. You can hear “What's In My Head” over at Consequence of Sound.
Has it really been 14 years since TLC had a Billboard Top 10 hit? Regardless of longevity, these women (who have been performing as a duo since Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died in 2002) are still working and recording. According to Billboard, we should be seeing some new material from them on Oct. 15. Speculation, people. But listen to their latest chart-topper, as they feature on J. Cole's “Crooked Smile.”
