    Earl Sweatshirt Thinks Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' Video Is 'Perpetuating Black Stereotypes'

    After weeks of teasing, Taylor Swift dropped "Shake It Off," the first single from her forthcoming album 1989, on Monday night. The dance-oriented clip has already drawn the ire of some corners of the internet, not the least of which was from Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt. The Los Angeles rapper took to Twitter last night, as Pitchfork points out, to criticize the "inherently offensive" video which features, at different points, Swift prancing through a crowd of breakdancers and crawling through a tunnel of twerking women."Haven't watched the Taylor Swift video and I don't need to watch it to tell you that it's inherently offensive and ultimately harmful," Earl said.He then went on to claim that the video was "perpetuating black stereotypes."

    Haim's Fake Talk Show Stars Vanessa Bayer, ASAP Ferg, Kesha, and More

    Haim's Days Are Gone arrived almost a year ago, but the former SPIN cover stars are finally set to release a video for one of that album's outliers. The glitzy, bass-driven barn-burner "My Song 5," which recently got an A$AP Ferg remix, received a star-studded teaser clip today that includes their new friend Vanessa Bayer as a daytime talk show host not unlike her Sound Advice character. Alongside a cameo from the Trap Lord himself, the video seems set to feature appearances from Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, a woman who looks a whole lot like Aidy Bryant, Kesha ("Keysha"), a mime, and a Haim sister with a serious secret.Watch the brief VHS-quality clip above and stay tuned for the rest.

    Hear Death From Above 1979's Sleazy Punk Crusher 'Government Trash'

    Doomy duo Death From Above 1979 are set to return with The Physical World, their first album since 2004's You're a Woman, I'm a Machine, next month. The nearly 10-year wait for the Toronto band's sophomore album has gotten a little easier today with the release of the second single from that set, "Government Trash." At a show last week at Los Angeles' Troubadour, they handed out CD-rs of the track and it trickled onto the Internet over the weekend.Like "Trainwreck 1979," this one kicks off with some downcast dance-rock, but from there things get a little unhinged. Sleazy, distorted basslines collide with rattling lo-fi drum beats while the duo unleashes some throat-scorching vocalizations. Sebastian Grainger and Jesse Keeler are definitely back, even if they've sort of made it seem like they don't want to be. Listen in here:

    Hear Ice-T Narrate a 'Dungeons & Dragons' Audiobook

    Along with his rap career, his numerous acting roles, and his metal band Body Count, Ice-T has an occasional side gig as an in-demand voice actor. He's taken more traditional roles in video games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but his latest project is a bit of a strange one. As part of a collection of stories called The Legend of Drizzt, based on the Dungeons & Dragons universe, the rapper read a story called "Comrade at Odds" which is available for free download now via Audible.As Consequence of Sound notes, he first spoke of the project on his podcast back in February, explaining that it was almost "impossible" because of some of the pronunciation involved."It's some of the most crazy, deep, deep nerd shit," he said at the time.

  • Aphex Twin Announce New Album SYRO Deep Web

    Aphex Twin Announces 'SYRO,' His First LP Since 2001, on the Deep Web

    On Saturday, a blimp bearing both the year 2014 and Aphex Twin's logo flew above a London venue, causing some speculation that Richard D. James might be plotting a new release for the first time since 2001's Drukqs. Today, James himself has confirmed such speculation, albeit in typically cryptic fashion.As Stereogum points out, the U.K. producer tweeted a strange url ending in .onion, the domain that's often used in the deep web's TOR browser. Apparently, once you get to the site a text page appears that seems suggests the existence of a new album called SYRO, as well as a string of track titles. Keep scrolling down and the bizarrely edited picture of James' face that you see above appears.If you go to a .com mirror of the url, the same page appears, sans track titles and album name.

    See Drake and Lady Gaga Take the Ice Bucket Challenge

    While on their co-headlining tour in Pittsburgh, Drake and Lil Wayne set aside a little time to join in on the ALS Association's ongoing Ice Bucket Challenge.

She now has 24 hours to dump a bucket of ice water on her head or otherwise donate to the ALS Association.Drake's challenge follows a number of other musicians and celebrities, including Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready, and "Weird Al" Yankovic. Lady Gaga also took the plunge today and nominated noted "#richpeople" Adele, producer Vincent Herbert, and Live Nation honchos Michael Rapino and Arthur Fogel.Watch Drake get wet above.

    Interpol Return to 'Ancient Ways' on 'El Pintor' Single

    On September 9, Interpol will finally release El Pintor, their first album since the departure of longtime bassist Carlos Dengler. They've already shared a black-and-white surf video for the album's lead single "All the Rage Back Home" and a professional live clip for "Anywhere," but today the trio has shared another dusky track "Ancient Ways." This new song relies on gloomy guitar lines and frontman Paul Banks' near-Corganian moan to hearken back to the dim post-punk strains of their earliest work.Listen to the full track below as you wait for the El Pintor's September release on Matador and the Fall tour they have planned in support.

  • Danzig Evil Elvis Cover EP Facebook

    Glenn Danzig Plotting Elvis Presley Covers EP

    Glenn Danzig has been busy lately pursuing a share of the Misfits merch that former bandmate Jerry Only has been peddling at Hot Topic stores across the country, but as Consequence of Sound points out, he's working on new music as well. The man occasionally known as Evil Elvis revealed Saturday night—the anniversary of Elvis Presley's death—that he's working on a new covers EP called Danzig Sings Elvis. If that seems like a strange mix, consider that even as far back as 1993 Danzig was playing Presley's "Trouble" with his band. There's no more details available on the EP as of yet, but you can watch archival footage of a metallic "Trouble" above.

    Arcade Fire Take Barack Obama Bobblehead to Fugazi's 'Waiting Room'

    There's only nine dates left on Arcade Fire's Reflektor tour, which leaves only a few more chances to show off their knowledge of the famous local acts of each city they pass through. Sunday night however, the Montreal crew stopped off in Washington, D.C. and thus had a wealth of choices for their cover of the day. Rather than take on a Wale song, the band went the D.C. punk route, playing a rendition of Fugazi's "Waiting Room." You can watch their lilting take on the track above, via Consequence of Sound, and be sure to note the giant Barack Obama caricature bobbling along to every note. For more recent Arcade Fire covers check out Neil Young in Winnipeg, Nirvana in Washington, Dead Kennedys in Los Angeles, and the Smiths in London
