Yeezus comin’ on June 18

Kanye West’s newest LP confirmed

Think what you will about Kanye West. Personally, I’ve always appreciated his music, but his personality always got in the way of me finding him likable. So, I just tend not to focus on him outside of his righteous rhymes. Sure, the rapper has garnered himself some controversy. (Remember that whole Taylor Swift speech interruption? Way to steal a young girl’s spotlight, K-Dubs). But music blogs are going nuts today over the announcement that West’s upcoming record, titled Yeezus, is dropping on June 18 and is already available to preorder on iTunes.

West performed two new tracks from his forthcoming LP on “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend, giving fans a taste of what’s to come. And Kim Kardashian posted a photo on Instragram, which has already been confirmed to be the cover art for the album. You know ... because they gotta keep it in the family (but only if it’s in front of the entire world). So, be on the lookout for what will no doubt be another interesting and thought-provoking record from one of hip-hop’s most notable figures.

Venous volume, hip-hop devotional, Burque + klezmer 4EVA and sonic docs for lovers

There's a strong musical connection between Burque and Denver. From Denver "ladyz"-centric music/art/performance fest Titwrench to local solo outsider ladyfest Gatas y Vatas, there's a lot of crossover love. The Meat Heart recital at Synchro Studio (512-B Yale SE) showcases the Denque (did I just coin that?) bond with performances by Denver-based poof-punk trio The Matildas and avant-garage/slop-pop outfit Pacific Pride and local prankster duo The Jeebies (real-life couple Clifford Grindstaff and former Alibi editor Marisa Demarco), supergroup Fando and solo experimental persona Lady Fox (Mauro Woody). Peep the 411 on the Meat Heart concert, hip-hop and klezmer fests and two terrific music docs (Beware of Mr. Baker and Ornette: Made in America) in this week's Music to Your Ears. Check out related A/V below. Synchro Studio • Meat Heart • The Matildas • Pacific Pride • The Jeebies • Lady Fox • Fando • Thurs Feb 14 • 8 pm • $7 • ALL-AGES!
