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.

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.

On October 7, Flying Lotus will drop a new album titled You’re Dead! via Warp. Heads up: it’s going to be incredible.

The follow-up album to 2012′s excellent Until the Quiet Comes has been teased for some time now. In November of last year, he tweeted that the album has more of a “jazz feel” and that it’s been undergoing production fine-tuning for months. All relatives aside, the jazz influences may come from his recent work with jazz legend Herbie Hancock.

See the full list of tour dates in support of You’re Dead! below. If you want to be his number one fan, pick up a copy of Bob Ross on DVD and give it to him at one of the stops. FlyLo’s is so nice that it’s almost guaranteed he would give you swag in return.

Back in April, they put out a lyric video for the album’s title track, but now the single has gotten a proper music video — and it was worth the wait.

Directed by Martin de Thurah, the “Do It Again” black and white video is a beautifully shot clip that takes place in Mexico and tells a huge story about oppression and rebuttal with the youth and a city’s people. While Robyn and Röyksopp are in the video, they make sure to stay as mere players in the larger tale, a humble decision for the sake of art.

Watch the video below and catch them on tour when they stop near you.

Now, according to The Sun, “the new album will drop before the end of the year, most likely in November,” and the band will probably play in London as a part of this year’s iTunes Festival.

The record is U2′s first album since 2009′s No Line on the Horizon and their 13th in total. They’re “very confident” ahead of their long-awaited comeback, and rightfully so considering they have been recording with Danger Mouse. Another source said the album has been “a real struggle for them to make” and that it’s taken “a long time” but that they’re convinced “the wait has been worth it.”

Until then, we can always listen to their Golden Globe-winning hit “Ordinary Love” from the Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.

GQ magazine’s latest issue stars none other than Kanye West and his cover story is an extensive interview that delves into new music, his wedding, and what he thinks of Drake (“Let’s be honest—he got last summer.”). The most exciting bit of the interview is that Kanye does announce he has a new single on the way titled “All Day” that will drop in “the next couple of weeks.” According to Kanye, it’s a club song (like “Don’t Like” or “Niggas in Paris”). As for the album, it’s coming in “most likely September.”

Read more about the new track in the following excerpt:

What does that mean in terms of putting the new record together? Do you want the pendulum to swing back and do something more pop, like Twisted Fantasy or GraduationI think just my usual pattern is like that. It’s like a pendulum. The pendulum gains momentum by swinging in the other direction. Even lyrically, I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called “All Day,” that usually Jay would say, but Jay’s not on there. So I say, All day, nigga, it’s Ye, nigga. Shopping for the winter, it’s just May, nigga. Ball so hard, man, this shit cray, nigga. You ain’t getting money unless you got eight figures. Right? Jay would have said that. And then eventually I would have came in with, like, whatever I come in with. But the balance of a meal is that when people walk in, they want water first. People definitely weren’t getting water first on Yeezus. I do fight with myself to say, “Keep fighting.” But also, you know, you can’t win every single fight. It’s a long war, and if you’re out there trying to, like, blow up every single building, you won’t win the war.

As for Jay Z and Beyonce missing his wedding? Well, Kanye had straightforward and heartwarming words to say: “All that, I wouldn’t even speak on. It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me. I had to fight for that for seven years.” D’aww.

You Will Eventually Be Forgotten is due August 19.

Earlier this year — in May, to be specific — we had the chance to premiere a live music video for The Most Dangerous Animal, a promising punk outfit hailing from Flint, Michigan. A few months later with the band still going strong on our radar, we’re excited to bring the Save Your Generations Records outfit to your attention once more in the form a brand new track.

Entitled “Snack,” the cut is yet another shining example of the group’s ability to make one powerful piece of music as all the raw energy one could ask for courses through churning instrumentals and impacting screams. It never quite enters overdrive into a full-on “punk” track in regards to pacing, but speed isn’t necessary since just the right amount of emotion and enjoyable music is packed into its grooving three-minute run-time.

Follow the jump to give “Snack” a listen, and if it sounds up your alley, then mark your calendars and set aside that hard-earned cash as the band’s brand new Breakfast EP is set to drop September 30 via SYG. Featuring six tracks, the record will be pressed on 200 copies of 12″ purple haze vinyl with screen-printed artwork on its B-Side courtesy of Craig Horky.

Fortunately, pre-orders are now available for those who can’t wait to claim a copy of Breakfast, so go ahead and click here while spinning “Snack.”

Yes, that’s right…beetles. The Los Angeles Times is reporting the southern California monument dedicated to the fallen Beatle, who lost his fight to cancer at the age of 58 in 2001, has been destroyed by an infestation of the pesky black bugs. The monument, which was planted after Harrison’s death in 2001, was reported to have grown larger than 10 feet tall in 2013.

At the bottom of the tree contains a plaque memorializing Harrison‘s life, stating: “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener.” It also includes a quote from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, saying: “For the forest to be green, each tree must be green.”

The tree is planned to be replaced and I’m sure we all can agree Harrison wouldn’t want the Taxman’s money spent any other way.

The trio resides in Brooklyn, NY, although a piece of the group will always live in Colorado.

When the DJ duo and drummer took stage at The Hudson Project in Saugerties, NY, the vibe was slow and steady. By the time the set was underway, the mud-filled tent was uncontrollable. Smoke streams and laser beams were the theme of the evening, as will be the theme of Savoy’s upcoming ‘Mo Lasers Mo Problems Tour.’ If you catch them at Terminal 5 in New York City, expect to see Heather Bright take stage for vocals …
