Daily Round-Up For September 22, 2013
Hello devoted music lovers! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s one and only destination for all of the latest, greatest, and most important music news of the day. Let’s get right to work.
The iHeartRadio Festival is going down this weekend, and there are performances upon memorable performances worth mentioning. But the two most interesting moments occurred when artists brought guest performers out on stage to join them – especially because there is video. Katy Perry brought out none other than Juicy J, and rapper J. Cole had both TLC and Miguel come assist him on stage. Both reveals made for rather great moments, and you can watch them both, through their respective links, at 2dopeboyz.
One thing that the band Mumford & Sons don’t get enough credit for is that they are constantly at work. They toured relentlessly behind the strength of their debut record, and when Babel was released last year, they toured relentlessly behind it too. They even recovered from a member’s brain surgery in amazing fashion. Now it is time for some much-needed downtime, said keyboardist Ben Lovett. You can read his remarks in full back at Consequence of Sound.
Ty Segall has yet another new album out. Sleeper hit shelves last month, but today three commercials for the record that apparently ran in select cities hit the internet. And they are weird. If you’re interested you can check out the videos back at Stereogum.
Video of Kanye West performing Bound 2 on the UK’s Later…With Jools Holland hit the internet last week, but today his performances of two other songs were released. These performances of New Slaves and Blood On The Leaves both differ from their album versions, and they carry with them a different emotional resonance. You can check them out Stereogum. Oh, and Kanye recently gave an interview to BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe. It airs next week, but judging from the 50-second snippet that was put up today, it’s going to be a very interesting one. Check the preview out at Consequence of Sound.
The new sophomore release from Odd Future-associated duo The Internet is due next week, but the band is making the record available to stream via Soundcloud right now! Go listen while you can, and check out Feel Good when it comes out on the 24th.
Eminem has released the album cover for his upcoming record The Marshall Mathers LP 2. The cover, which is apparently a picture of Eminem’s childhood home in Detroit, features the same color scheme and style of the original Marshall Mathers LP. We are all extremely excited for this new record. Check out the cover at Consequence of Sound.
