"Mustard on the beat, ho!" You can pretty much turn on rap radio at any time of the day and hear that multiple times -- between producing hits for YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Tinashe, Jeezy, 2 Chainz, Tyga and so many more, DJ Mustard is basically everywhere. And not for nothing, he knows his way around a beat. He also put out his proper debut album this year, 10 Summers, which was produced entirely by Mustard himself and featured contributions from plenty of big names likes YG, Jeezy, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign, Nipsey Hussle, Iamsu!, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, Fabolous, Dom Kennedy, Lil Boosie and more.

UK multimedia duo Public Service Broadcasting are looking to the heavens for their new album, The Race For Space, which is out February 23. As the title suggests, this time the focus their cut-and-paste technique is the '60s obsession with getting into orbit. The first single is "Gagarin," a tribute to Russian cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, the first man to orbit the earth in a spacecraft. With samples from various radio and television broadcasts, J. Willgoose, Esq. and Wrigglesworth have concocted a very funky backing track for it. For the video, directed by Alex Kemp, you get just what you'd expect: a pair dancing astronauts. You can watch it below.
PSB were last in North America for CMJ 2013 but they'll splash down on this side of the Atlantic again next year for SXSW.

New Jersey's Planning For Burial, who released the excellent Desideratum earlier this year, is heading out on a short run of east coast dates this month into December. He'll be hitting NYC for a show at Grand Victory on November 30, which will feature support from Phily's Psychic Teens (who just put out a new 7"), Street Sects nad Hex Cult. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Planning For Burial also recently released a split with Minnesota goth/post-punk crew Liar In Wait. Planning For Burial's track, "Mischief Night," which you can stream below, is really a continuation of the more accessible flavors of Desideratum, showcasing a strongly developed take on shoegaze and post-rock. Its a legitimately lush, beautiful, enveloping listen. Check it out, with the list of dates, below...

Well that didn't take long. Earlier today, a Ride reunion was teased and now it's officially been announced that the legendary shoegazers will bless us with their first shows since their 1996 breakup in 2015! As speculated, they will in fact play Barcelona's Primavera Sound Festival (with The Strokes and more TBA) and they've also announced two North American dates so far, one of which is at NYC's Terminal 5 on June 4 (same place fellow reunited shoegazers Slowdive just played). Tickets will be on sale soon.
Check out the full list of reunion dates (via Pitchfork) and listen to Ride's classic 1990 debut Nowhere and 1992's sophomore LP Going Blank Again...

only other currently announced dates are a festival in Chile in December and a DC show happening a few days after the NYC show. It seems likely that more could be announced, so stay tuned.

Foo Fighters in Chicago in October (more by James Richards IV)
Foo Fighters put out their stadium rock album, Sonic Highways, earlier this month, and now they've announced a tour where they'll appropriately be playing stadiums. Following a NJ show at Susquehanna Bank Center (7/6), the Foos will hit NYC on July 16 at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. In order to "beat the bots" (aka scalper bots), there will be a box office-only presale for most dates starting Saturday (11/22) at 10 AM local time. You can visit the band's website for the complete list of box office locations. You'll just have to camp out for tickets like people did in the ol' days.
The NY and NJ shows, and other dates, are with the UK-loved rockers Royal Blood, but on a much cooler note, several other dates are with Mission of Burma (sometimes we need a reminder that Grohl actually does come from an amazing punk background). Their sold-out Chicago gig is also stacked with cool openers: Cheap Trick, Naked Raygun and Urge Overkill. All dates are listed below.
Speaking of Grohl's amazing punk background, anyone remember that Nirvana interview where they're talking about playing at the same festival as Extreme, and when Krist Novoselic says "I'm not even really sure if they're aware that things can actually operate on a different level" regarding their way of musical life vs Nirvana's, Dave interrupts and says "I don't think they're aware of how much they SUCK!" Would the Dave Grohl of today, who says Lorde represents the Nirvana aesthetic, ever diss a mainstream rock band in a public interview like that?
Meanwhile, Extreme celebrate the 25th anniversary of their album Pornograffiti at a Long Island show on January 24. Tickets go on sale Friday (11/21) if you're into that sort of thing. We're pretty sure we're doing laundry that day.

Radio Silence is a San Francisco-based arts magazine focusing on music and literature. To celebrate the release of their third issue, they're putting on a show in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge on Saturday (11/22) featuring notable talents from both: Stephin Merritt (Magnetic Fields, The 6ths) and Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses, Belly) will be playing, while acclaimed rock critic Greil Marcus and author Rick Moody (The Ice Storm) will do readings. Plus: Sylvie Simmons, Sam Davol, Golden Suits, Matthew Friedberger (Fiery Furnaces), and Jim White.
Also on the bill, author Sam Lipsyte and a reunion of his late-'80s/early-'90s NYC art-punk band Dungbeetle. While the group are mostly a footnote (only one single released), one of their champions at the time was James Murphy who liked them so much he signed on as their sound guy and built his first studio with them in Dumbo. Said Murphy to NY Mag:
Dungbeetle were like Andy Kaufman. When Andy Kaufman performed, he was not just trying to be funny. He was playing with the notion of what it means to try to be funny, of what it means to be an audience expecting somebody to be funny. He was doing a dance and playing a game. Watching Dungbeetle was like being involved in that game.Tickets are on sale now and include a copy of the new issue of Radio Silence which features contributions by Lucinda Williams, Bruce Springsteen Carrie Brownstein, Ian Mackaye, Rick Moody and more.
