Katy B

London alt-pop singer Katy B is prepping a new release called Honey (no release date yet), and she's prefacing it with the new single "Calm Down." It was co-produced by the excellent beatmakers Four Tet and Floating Points (who are no strangers), and as you might expect they've laid down a masterful, futuristic soundscape. Katy sounds great over it -- listen below.

NPR

The year-end lists keep coming. Today, NPR Music published their 50 Favorite Albums of 2015 list. As usual, it's all over the map genre-wise, with classical, jazz, electronic, rap, mainstream pop, lo-fi DIY, indie rock, folk, country, metal and more.

It's got some of the albums that appear on most of these lists, like Kendrick Lamar, Sufjan Stevens, Courtney Barnett, Jamie xx, Future, Vince Staples, Joanna Newsom and Alabama Shakes, but plenty of surprises too. It's the first list I've seen with the Beauty Pill album, and the first non-rap list I've seen with The Game. It's also got often-underrated albums from Colleen, Jazmine Sullivan and Low. And there's bound to be something on it you haven't heard yet.

Read their commentary here and check out the full list below...

Uncut

The new issue of UK music mag Uncut is out now, and it includes their Top 75 Albums of 2015 list. Like fellow UK mags MOJO and Q, they've got a lot of love for Julia Holter. They also have Sleaford Mods pretty high, lots of the 2015 year-end regulars in the top 10 (Kendrick, Sufjan, Father John Misty, Tame Impala, Courtney Barnett), and lots of older musicians throughout the list (Keith Richards, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Richard Thompson, Nick Cave, Killing Joke, PiL, Paul Weller, Robert Forster, etc). Check out the full list below.

Q

British music mag Q just put out their latest issue which has Coldplay on the cover and also includes their Top 50 Albums of 2015 list (not including the new Coldplay album, which isn't out yet). It's got a lot of the bands that the UK press tends to favor more than the American press (Palma Violets, Wolf Alice, Years & Years, Slaves, Everything Everything), tons of the stuff we'll probably see on most lists (Tame Impala, Sufjan Stevens, Kendrick Lamar, Courtney Barnett), and a few surprises.

Four Tet

Earlier in the year, Four Tet mentioned he was working on the followup to 2013's Beautiful Rewind. Like he did with that album, he dropped the whole thing on us without announcing the release date. It's called Morning/Evening, and it came out yesterday in celebration of the summer solstice. The album features two songs in 40 minutes. Listen below...

Four Tet

IDM great Four Tet is working on the followup to 2013's Beautiful Rewind -- earlier this month he tweeted that side 1 is done -- and he's busy with other stuff too. Just a few days ago, he debuted a remix of Coldplay's "Fix You" on Jon Hopkins' BBC Radio 1 residency, and you can listen to that below.

Four Tet also has some shows coming up, a few of which will have him going b2b with the jazz-influenced UK bass producer Floating Points. One of those is in NYC on April 30 at Output. Tickets for that one are on sale now.

Four Tet and Floating Points also DJed together at the closing party for London club Plastic People in January. Listen to that mix, with the list of all currently announced dates and the Coldplay remix, below...

photo::: Caribou Vibration Ensembe @ ATP NY 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)

You may remember that Caribou toured as the Caribou Vibration Ensemble back in 2009 which featured Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Four Tet's Kieran Hebden, Enon/Braniac's John Schmersal, Sinkane's Ahmed Gallab and more. CVE released a live album in 2010 and have now released a second, this time coming from two shows in December 2011 in Belgium and London with a slightly different lineup of the Ensemble, most notably minus minus Allen. You can stream that in full below and they'll have vinyl copies on tour this spring.

Meanwhile, there's also a live video of Caribou Vibration Ensemble from their ATP UK performance in 2011 that does feature Marshall Allen and the other folks on the live LP (ATP UK was just a few days later). That video was shot and directed by Savages drummer Fay Milton and you can watch that below as well.

As you may know Milton and the rest of Savages are in NYC this month for a nine-show club residency. Marshall Allen, meanwhile, will be here with Sun Ra Arkestra for a free show at the Seaport's inflatable venue Sugarcube on January 31.

Video and live album stream below...

Pitchfork

Yesterday, Pitchfork posted their top 200 tracks of the decade so far, and today they've listed the top 100 albums to have come out between 2010-2014. There's some surprises on there. For example, I didn't expect to see Bon Iver's self-titled, their #1 album of 2011 and with a score of 9.5, rank as low as #27 on this list. I was also surprised to see Chief Keef make it but not, say, Shabazz Palaces or Schoolboy Q. And there's a few other glaring omissions: nothing by The National? Grizzly Bear? One thing that will surprise no one though, is their #1 pick.

You can check out the full list below...

2014 Osheaga Festival

2014 Osheaga Festival

Headliner OutKast took the stage with a more pertinent query: "Are you ready for the greatest rap group of all time?" It was classic rap hype, and yet as the ensuing 90 minutes proved, the recently reunited duo of Big Boi and Andre 3000 has earned the right to include itself in the ranks of the hip hop elite. Not only did these guys show no rust, they reminded us what made them great since their first album, Southernplayalisticadillacmusik, was released 20 years ago: a dynamic and utterly complementary MC team blessed with rare musicality, lyrical ingenuity and stylistic audacity. From frenetic opener Bombs Over Baghdad to the understatedly anthemic Wheelz of Steel, civil rights party jam Rosa Parks and the song that made them a household name, Ms. Jackson, they were at once authoritatively engaging and sonically adventurous. Sure, there were hits, lots - including irresistible genre-bender Hey Ya! (delivered by André 3000 with a line of female fans dancing on stage - cheesy, but effective), sly boast So Fresh, So Clean, and the beautifully sleepy Elevators - but it's all relative. At its best, OutKast mixed cool and creativity like nobody's business. [Montreal Gazette]
Taking place over the same weekend as Lollapalooza, and boasting a similarly huge lineup, Montreal's annual music festival Osheaga went down over this past weekend (August 1-3). The stacked festival included sets from Outkast, Jack White, The Replacements (with Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong), Arctic Monkeys, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Modest Mouse, Danny Brown, Mac Demarco, Against Me!, The Dismemberment Plan, Haim and many more. Pictures of some of those artists, and a bunch of others, are in this post.

They continue below...

As mentioned, Neneh Cherry will release Blank Project, her first solo album in 18 years, next week (2/25) via Smalltown Supersound. Produced by Four Tet, the record is stripped down, raw, and live, letting Cherry's still powerful voice carry most of the weight. Some of it even recall her early years in postpunk bands Rip Rig & Panic and Float Up CP, and Robyn shows up on "Out of the Black" for guest vocals. You can stream the Robyn collaboration and a couple other tracks below, or listen to the whole thing via NPR.

Speaking of, Four Tet plays a NYC's Terminal 5 this Saturday (2/22) with Martyn (live) and Anthony Naples (DJ). Tickets are still available.

The goal of the Everything is New project is to empower the children of Light of Love Children's Home, many of whom have been rescued from bonded labour, child prostitution, homelessness and abject poverty. The project creates the opportunity for the children to 'star' in the cultural forms they themselves consider most meaningful - popular music and cinema.
The Everything is New project has resulted in two albums, both of which are out January 20: Sun Choir, which was composed and recorded by Scottish art-pop band Marram with the kids of Southeast India's Light of Love Children's Home and features guest appearances from Jarvis Cocker, Owen Pallett, Irvine Welsh and more; and BOATS where artists such as Four Tet, Rustie, Dan Deacon, YACHT, Bear in Heaven, Deerhoof's Greg Saunier, Max Tundra, Gang Gang Dance and more took samples of the children and built songs around them.

Proceeds from the project go to the charity Scottish Love in Action which feeds, clothes, houses, educates and provides medical care for over 500 children through the Light of Love Home and School. You can stream Rustie, YACHT, Jarvis Cocker and Four Tet's tracks below.

There's also a 70-minute feature film that's included with physical copies of the Sun Choir album. You can watch a short and a not so short making of videos below...

The xx in Tulum - 12/31/13 (via @hickduarte)
Young Turks

There were tons of New Year's Eve shows here in NYC, as well as around the rest of the country, and down in Mexico, the Young Turks label threw a party on the beach in popular tourist site Tulum (famous, among other things, for its ruins). It literally went all night, kicking off with some of the label's DJs at 8 PM, followed by Sampha, John Talabot, Chairlift, The xx, Grimes, SBTRKT, Koreless, Pional, Four Tet and others playing past 11 AM New Year's Day.

During SBTRKT's set, he revealed an unreleased Jessie Ware collaboration, "Runaway." You can stream that, along with a video featuring clips of multiple sets from the show, and a few more pics, below...
