• Demon Queen Tobacco Zackey Force Funk Video

    Evil Lives in Demon Queen's 'Demon Practice' Video

    Evil is passed from person to person like a satanic game of tag in Demon Queen's new video for "Demon Practice". It's NSFW but it's also not suitable for those times you're home alone at night either. When we found out Black Moth Super Rainbow mastermind Tom "Tobacco" Fec and falsetto fiend Zackey Force Funk of the hardcore crew Machina Muerte were teaming up, we knew things were going to get weird — but this, this is downright terrifying stuff. The track is aggressive and hits hard, the aesthetic a tangle of hardcore and twisted party vibes, from the demented duo's Exorcise Tape, due August 6 on Tobacco's Rad Cult label.

    Watch Kylesa Blow Up a Texas Living Room With Three-Song Set

    There's not a whole lot going on in Denton, Texas, but today we're grateful for this one living room they've got there. Recently, Georgian sludge-metal outfit Kylesa stopped by to take part in the Violitionist Sessions, an interview and live recording series of local and touring bands making their way through the town. The space is small, but the sound most certainly is not, and Kylsea through "To Forget" from 2010’s Spiral Shadow, "Said And Done" from 2009’s Static Tensions, and "Hollow Severer" from 2006's Time Will Fuse Its Worth. Head to the Violitionist site for audio downloads and a brief interview (via Stereogum).

  • Joey Bada$$ 95 Til Infinity Summer Knights

    Joey Bada$$'s '95 Til Infinity' Nods to Souls of Mischief, Offers Pure Boom-Bap

    Since Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ dropped "Word Is Bond" last month we've been getting amped awaiting his Summer Knights mixtape. That was supposed to come out today, but now we're told it's been pushed back a month until July 1. Fret not, the young MC has thrown us a bone with "95 Til Infinity."The Souls of Mischief-nodding track features production by Lee Bannon (who's been said to be working on a new Souls album as well) and rolls with an engrossing, laid-back beat topped off by heavenly backup vocals. The 18-year-old Bada$$ from the Pro Era posse, meanwhile, comes hard with his lyrical flow — each word sharp and pointed in its delivery, not to mention utterly steeped in the boom-bap of the song's titular time period.

  • Pure X Thousand Year Old Child video Crawling Up The Stairs

    Pure X's 'Thousand Year Old Child' Gives the Performance of a Lifetime

    On Pure X's peaceful Crawling Up the Stairs entry, "Thousand Year Old Child," an old soul serenades his lover as she walks out the door. The Austin band's new video puts a face to that narrator, a grizzed visage that looks to have been around for as long as the title claims. Our hero wakes and contentedly walks the land of his country home, stopping to check on his goat and feed his chickens. Soon, the video's journey cleans him up and drops him in the city, a sense of ruin and finality looming ahead.

    Watch Black Sabbath Desecrate Prime-Time Television With 'End of the Beginning'

    Heavy metal elder statesmen Black Sabbath treated CBS' elderly audience to eight minutes of hell-raising rock on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation's last month, and now the episode is available online.Originally aired on May 15, the performance debuted "End of the Beginning," the long lead-off track to Sabbath's Rick Rubin-produced new album 13, and ate up a sizable portion of cop drama's 43-minute run time. That explains why Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler, and guitarist Tony Iommi look so excited, milking every second of screen time. In a questionable cinematographic choice, the video toggles from black-and-white to color around the three-minute mark, as the song starts to heat up. The staged audience is just really feeling it."I'm not an actor," Osbourne said in a behind-the-scenes clip. "It’s like a hurry-up-and-wait.

  • My Morning Jacket One Big Holiday Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya Mexico

    Una Gran Fiesta: My Morning Jacket Book Mexican Vacation Concert

    Musical cruises have grown in popularity over the years: the Bruise Cruise, Weezer's cruise, the Coachella Cruise, Holy Ship!!!, the (mercifully) nixed Mark McGrath '90s alt-rock cruise, and on and on. But My Morning Jacket, whose sound is too grand for one mere cruise-liner to contain, are relocating the vacation-concert concept back onto land.The Louisville natives announced Tuesday (June 11) a four-night event for a select 2,500 fans. One Big Holiday (named after the band's 2003 song) runs January 26 to 30 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, one hour south of Cancun near Playa Del Carmen. Tickets run from $1,249 to $2,599 per person, which includes lodging, meals, drinks, activities, three full MMJ shows, and a dance party hosted by the band. Travel is not included in the cost. Pre-sale begins June 19.

  • Fat Tony Hood Party Video Tom Cruz Kool A.D. of Das Racist Despot

    Fat Tony Brings Kool A.D. to His Chat-Room 'Hood Party' in Rambunctious Video

    Ain't no party like a Google Hangout party. In his new video for laid-back anthem "Hood Party," Houston rapper Fat Tony spans the States with a video conference call that brings on producer Tom Cruz and rappers Kool A.D. (formerly of Das Racist) and Despot. They're all raging from their own locations — Fat Tony's in Houston, Kool A.D. is in Oakland, Tom Cruz and Despot are in Brooklyn — but thanks to the power of technology they can drink and cleverly wax poetic on gentrification all together.The song's solid and the parties look fun, as simultaneous story lines unfold through MacBook webcams. We won't spoil it for you, but there's an unexpected and appreciated twist that changes things up at the end of the night."Hood Party" is off Fat Tony's new album Smart Ass Black Boy, which is out today on Young One. 

  • New Freddie Gibbs Track

    Freddie Gibbs Previews 'ESGN' Album With Bleak-Banging 'One Eighty Seven' Single

    We've been watching Indiana-raised rapper Freddie Gibbs for a minute now. And through all of professional struggles and record label headaches — Interscope dropped him in 2007, and he left Young Jeezy's CTE imprint last year — a strong anticipation has continued to build toward the man's long-delayed debut studio album.At long last, we're looking at a stable release date for ESGN — which stands for "Evil Seeds Grow Naturally" — due July 9 via the artist's own damn self, and now we finally have a single to consider as well. "One Eighty Seven" features Compton rapper Problem and, perhaps even more prominently, a looming sense of trouble. The track is so dark-sounding, in fact, that it just about makes all of the hard-boiled MC's previous work feel sunny.That said, the song's content isn't as bleak as it could be considering its title a synonym for murder.

  • King Khan and The Shrines new Born to Die Idle No More

    King Khan & the Shrines Get Psyched-Out on 'Born to Die'

    We learned last month that psych-and-soul outfit King Khan & the Shrines signed to Merge for a new album. Now we know the name of the thing — Idle No More — plus the release date: September 3. What's more, we've got an ominous first taste of the forthcoming set via the bone-rattling single, "Born to Die." Via statement, Khan explains that the heavily trippy track, is "an apocalyptic ode to the heinous war machine that to this day ruins our lives." It's also a head-spinning LSD bath brimming with wah-wah noodle and tasty grooves.Idle No More will be the group's eighth album and their first since 2008's rowdy The Supreme Genius of King Khan and the Shrines.

  • lonely island robyn sean diddy combs paul rudd go kindergarten the wack album

    The Lonely Island 'Go Kindergarten' with Diddy, Paul Rudd, and Robyn in New Video

    We already had a taste of the Lonely Island's Robyn-featuring banger "Go Kindergarten" in a faux-viral hashtag-happy video. But now, with the help of Sean "Diddy" Combs and Paul Rudd, the comedy trio have served us a total #upgrade. The new guest stars play real-life best buds on a night out on the town. In a bizarre club, Andy Samberg and his fellow Islanders perform with the Swedish pop star, putting the audience in a puppet-like trance. It starts innocently enough, sure, but soon the dudes are, to paraphrase the song, whipping their dicks out, eating garbage, and sucking helium through their butts."Go Kindergarten," of course, hails from the Lonely Island's third long-player, The Wack Album, which came out today.
