Kendrick Lamar Talks New Album http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/07/22/kendrick-lamar-talks-new-album/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/07/22/kendrick-lamar-talks-new-album/#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 02:18:18 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1122666 Since the Beats by Dre commercial featuring Kendrick Lamar, we’ve been in anticipation of what’s come with his followup to the hugely successful good kid, m.A.A.d. city.

He recently opened up about the album a bit more in an interview with Complex Magazine. With production work done by Dr. Dre and thirty to forty songs already ready to roll, Lamar sets out for a late 2014 release — and we couldn’t be more excited.

Since the Beats by Dre commercial featuring Kendrick Lamar, we’ve been in anticipation of what’s come with his followup to the hugely successful good kid, m.A.A.d. city.

He recently opened up about the album a bit more in an interview with Complex Magazine. With production work done by Dr. Dre and thirty to forty songs already ready to roll, Lamar sets out for a late 2014 release — and we couldn’t be more excited.

An excerpt from the Complex conversation reads, “Unlike GKMC, which Kendrick planned years in advance, there’s no cover art in mind for the follow-up. As for a title, Kendrick says he’s ‘flirting with ideas.’ He’s been working primarily with TDE’s (Top Dog Entertainment) in-house producers, Tae Beats and Sounwave of Digi+Phonics, but has also gotten in the studio with Dr. Dre. He’s still just ‘getting his ideas down,’ but so far Kendrick’s recorded 30 to 40 new songs for the album (he recorded 60 to 70 songs for GKMC). He says he’ll be ready for a fourth quarter release.”

Kendrick talks about his infamous verse in “Control,” lyrical content in the follow-up, and much more in the full interview.

Stay tuned to UTG for any information about Kendrick Lamar.

Furthermore, the entire thing is now available to stream as well.

The title track and “Giving Up” are great examples of what Weiss does best: indie pop with heart and a driving beat. Robyn cover “Call Your Girlfriend” showcases the raw emotion in the cracking of her voice.

The title track and “Giving Up” are great examples of what Weiss does best: indie pop with heart and a driving beat. Robyn cover “Call Your Girlfriend” showcases the raw emotion in the cracking of her voice. The cover to the EP is grabbing–bubblegum pink with a black crayon sketch of a campfire–and gets you ready to reminisce with Weiss but also suggests how bright her star is burning right now. The short-haired, bespectacled crooner is out on the road for the entire month of July as a feature of the Acoustic Basement set on Warped Tour. If the tour and the EP aren’t enough for you, head over to Stage It for her Internet Summer Residency, where she performs a live internet show every second Wednesday for the duration of the summer.

You can stream Remember When below via Rdio.

STAND-UP TUESDAYS: Steve Byrne http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/07/22/stand-up-tuesdays-steve-byrne/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/07/22/stand-up-tuesdays-steve-byrne/#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 00:33:17 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1122653 Stand-Up Tuesdays is a weekly comedy spotlight written by the wonderfully talented Angie Frissore.

Stand-Up Tuesdays is a weekly comedy spotlight written by the wonderfully talented Angie Frissore. Covering both known and unknown comics, Stand-up Tuesdays is your new source for all things funny.

This week, Angie puts a spotlight on Steve Byrne’s comedy career. If you or your comedy troupe would like to be featured on Stand-Up Tuesdays, please email utgjames@gmail.com.

Comedian Steve Byrne‘s latest special, Champion, is the focus of this week’s Stand-Up Tuesdays, and I can’t think of a more fitting title. They may say that nice guys finish last, but Byrne is clearly on top of his game and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Byrne acts as a champion for the people in his new special, pointing out life’s oddities and incongruities in an honest, no-holds-barred fashion. Riffing on everything from animal rape to ethnic stereotypes, the veteran performer and star of TBS’ hit show Sullivan & Son calls it as he sees it: you don’t see a lot of fried chicken commercials during hockey games, and there’s something clearly wrong with you if you’re not married by your forties. There are so many moments I know I, myself, could relate to, but would never confess: “When I see a fat girl going to use the bathroom, I assume she’s taking a shit.”

Some might find Byrne’s brutal honesty slightly off-putting, but those folks probably don’t belong in a comedy audience. Having interviewed Byrne a couple of times, I have the advantage of knowing what a great person he really is – and his material is harmlessly fun. Byrne touches upon the subjects and opinions that most people secretly share and does so in a manner that turns the tables on your expectations.

I also find it fitting that Byrne is currently starring in a sitcom based in a bar, given that he’s the type of comedian that you just want to sit down and have a beer with. His high energy and likability are infectious, which is clearly demonstrated as he takes the stage to uproarious applause. My recommendation would be to enjoy Champion on video (it is currently available on Netflix instant), as Byrne’s comedy has a healthy amount of physicality to it (particularly when he’s impersonating a flamboyant gay man).

Steve Byrne certainly is the Champion in my book and should be a key player in your stand-up collection. Stream it now on Netflix, or snag it on iTunes today.

Grade: A-

The deal was made in exchange for Coolio’s ability to use the website’s prime talent for his upcoming music video, “Take it to the Hub,” so look forward to seeing his face in all its 50-year-old glory while totally not browsing PornHub in the near future.

Not a week goes by where I don’t get sad knowing The Books are no longer around. But then, almost immediately following that thought, I remember we have Zammuto and thank the musical stars above. Started by Nick Zammuto of The Books shortly after the band called it quits in 2012, Zammuto stays in line with The Books’ found sound electronic style but replaces the cello with plenty of luxurious harmonies and shaky guitar lines. On September 2, Zammuto will be releasing his sophomore solo album, Anchor, via Temporary Residence.

Our first taste of the album comes in the form of the glitchy, winking single “Great Equator,” and today we get a taste of the more playful “Hegemony.” The latter toys with salsa and disco while roping in handfuls of drums and silky vocal samples. Zammuto once again manages to keep things warm but detached, a sensation few musicians know how to master. Give “Hegemony” a listen over at NPR, and check out “Great Equator” and the album’s full tracklist below:

Anchor Tracklist
01. Good Graces
02. Great Equator
03. Hegemony
04. Henry Lee (Trad.)
o5. Need Some Sun
06. Don’t Be a Tool
07. Electric Ant
08. IO
09. Stop Counting

11. Your Time

Maroon 5 are one of the few solid acts nowadays who very capably maintain and gain a larger fan base continuously despite the differences in sound and appeal of their last couple records. Notably a very pop-infused collection, the band shares that V will not be as poppy as Overexposed was, indicating a more personal touch from Adam Levine and the rest of the band, both lyrically and aesthetically. This record also welcomes the return of keyboardist Jesse Carmichael who was on a hiatus during the production cycle of M5’s last record. With the production involving people like Ryan Tedder, Gwen Stefani, Benny Blanco and other wonderful people in the music industry, V is highly anticipated and expected to garner much success.

You can find V’s newly unveiled track listing, B-sides, and album art below.

1. “Maps”

Fortunately for the bass pounding producer, most listeners will surely be pleased with his latest effort.

Due to receiving stamps of approval ranging from hoards of trap music fans all the way up to our lord and savior Kanye West, expectations are always high for Hudson Mohawke’s newest releases, whether they be for collaborations with Lunice under the now defunct TNGHT banner, or in the case of a brand new cut entitled “Chimes,” his solo work. Fortunately for the bass pounding producer, most listeners will surely be pleased with his latest effort. Featuring bare-bones percussion and bass kicks sounding more akin to Death Grips than Mohawke, floaty synths swirl about before sinking into a slow-burning beatdown courtesy of the aforementioned instrumentals alongside his staple of horns aplenty.

Give “Chimes” a listen after the jump and be sure to look out for Mohawke’s forthcoming EP of the same name when it drops September 30 via Warp Records. For those who can’t keep their money from burning a hole in their pockets, though, the record is currently available to pre-order here.

The duo have claimed numerous times that the album will drop this year and we trust that it’s the truth, so with that in mind, RTJ2 may very well be my most anticipated album for the remainder of 2014.

I’m hoping that when I see them at Outside Lands in San Francisco in a few weeks that I’ll be showered in a wealth of new material.

Anyway, today, El-P teased a wee portion (like 15 seconds) of a new track on his Instagram which you can listen to after the jump. He shared, “very soon we will drop something in some form from rtj2. in the meantime all i can do is offer little peeks like this.”

The fascinating Sub Pop art rap releases Lese Majesty in one week, but you can hear it for a week via NPR’s First Listen series.

The album has plenty of the avante garde weirdness of past Shabazz tunes, but it’s also a surprisingly lush, relaxed release. As Andrew Matson points out, “the album’s title comes from the French phrase for sacrilege against royalty.” Perhaps its posh nature shouldn’t be a surprise, then, as the names gracing the album and its tracks relate to royalty.. …

To delve further into the weirdness, pre-order the album from Sub Pop.

Hostage Calm Premiere New Music Video and Announce ‘Die On Stage’ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/07/22/hostage-calm-premiere-new-music-video-and-announce-die-on-stage/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/07/22/hostage-calm-premiere-new-music-video-and-announce-die-on-stage/#comments Tue, 22 Jul 2014 18:33:19 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1122548 After first listening to Hostage Calm’s late 2012 release, Please Remain Calm, I thought I was hearing the Connecticut-based band at their very best. After giving “Your Head/Your Heart” a play for the first time, I find myself corrected.

The quartet’s music video for the lead single off their newly announced album, Die On Stage, was shared by AV Club earlier today and can be found following the jump. Yes, they may be clinging to their 60s shtick more than ever before, but I suppose this is just another case of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” …

Yes, they may be clinging to their 60s shtick more than ever before, but I suppose this is just another case of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This track is so full of layered, pop-tinged vocals and glockenspiel fills that you might have a punk song your parents actually want to listen to.

Follow the jump to get a look at the tracklist and cover art for Die On Stage, which will be released on September 16 through Run For Cover Records. Stay posted for pre-order info.

Hostage Calm Die on Stage

1. When You Know
2. A Thousand Miles Away From Here
3. Love Against!
4. Someone Else
5. Fallen Angel
6. Your Head / Your Heart
7. Raised
8. 12/31
9. Darling You
10. Past Ideas Of The Future
