Daily Round-Up For January 30, 2014
Hello, one and all! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s one and only assortment of all the music news to grace the headlines today. Let’s get right to business.
Some new recordings of the late Elliot Smith have surfaced on the Internet. Musician Mike Doughty posted the three tracks, which feature Smith alongside some electronic sounds, this week. If you are interested or would like to hear the songs, follow the link back to The Line of Best Fit.
Just in time for his birthday, J. Cole has released a new EP, entitled Revenge of the Dreamers. Featured on the EP are two new songs from J. Cole, as well as a J. Cole feature on a tune by Dreamville. If you are a fan, check these out back at The Music Ninja.
On the heels of their announcement of an upcoming new album, Cloud Nothings have made plans to hit the UK and Europe in a tour this May, culminating with a stop at the Primavera Music Festival in Barcelona. Cloud Nothings may have taken 2013 to stay out the spotlight, but it looks like 2014 is going to be a big year for this much-loved punk band. The full story is at The Line of Best Fit.
Rapper and singer Drake made some news earlier this month by releasing a song called Odio, in which he sings and raps in English and Spanish. This week, the official lyric video was released. To see those Spanish lyrics in beautiful HD, just head back to The Line of Best Fit.
The first Super Bowl ads of the year have begun to appear, and this year ads from Chobani and Chrysler are lucky enough to feature legend Bob Dylan. His song I Want You can be heard in a new ad for Chobani, and he is set to appear in all his glory in a Chrysler soon to be seen. Check out the full story at Stereogum.
The Allman Brothers Band has announced that they plan to stop touring after an unprecedented 45 years on the road. Founding member Gregg Allman made sure to leave the door open for future endeavors (“we may get back together every five years”), as well as to plug the band’s new CD/DVD Play All Night: Live at the Beacon Theatre. And the band has a few more tour dates left in them. Get out and see them while you still can! All this information can be found at Consequence of Sound.
