The Alchemist and Oh No put together a new compilation album called Welcome to Los Santos, which was inspired by Grand Theft Auto V, and comes out on April 14 with the PC version of the game. That includes the brand new Killer Mike and MNDR collaboration "Lock & Load," which you can stream below.
We also mentioned earlier today that Alchemist has an upcoming NYC show with Mobb Depp, Funkmaster Flex, and Smif N Wessun.
The first of the live music events happens tonight (9/30) at Church of Saint Paul the Apostle (405 W 59th St) with four composers who worked on the game's score: ambient legends Tangerine Dream, hip hop producers The Alchemist and Oh No (who worked on the new Danny Brown album), and composer Woody Jackson (Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire).
After that, there's an afterparty at Le Poisson Rouge at 11 PM with DJ sets from Flying Lotus and BBC's Gilles Peterson, who both host radio shows in the game.
The show was initially $150 for the concert and afterparty, but has since been reduced in price. There's now a $40 ticket option that gets you into the concert and the afterparty, and $20 tickets for just the concert, or $20 advance tickets ($25 day of the show) for just the afterparty. We're also giving away tickets to both the concert and the afterparty. Details on how to enter to win are below.
Flying Lotus recently made his GTAV station, which includes music from Outkast, Tyler the Creator, Machinedrum, Tundercat, Aphex Twin, and more, available to stream in full (via Rolling Stone). You can listen to that, along with its tracklist and the contest details, below...
Rapper Danny Brown has been planning the release of his much-anticipated new album, Old, for some time now, and the whole thing can finally be streamed via Spotify. Check it out below.
The album features appearances from Purity Ring, Schoolboy Q, A$AP Rocky, Ab-Soul, Freddie Gibbs, and more, plus production from Rustie, Darq E Freaker, Oh No (who plays NYC tonight [9/30]), A-Trak, and more. It officially comes out on October 8 via Fool's Gold.
Danny is currently wrapping up a tour with Action Bronson and Trash Talk (who played their own show at 285 Kent over the weekend), and he'll play NYC again when he opens for Sleigh Bells at Terminal 5 on November 22 with Doldrums. Tickets for that show are still available. Danny also would have played NJ's Rock The Bells this weekend, but that's been cancelled.

Most excitingly, there will be a concert on September 30 at Church of Saint Paul the Apostle (405 W 59th St) with the game's score composers including ambient legends Tangerine Dream, two hip hop producers The Alchemist and Oh No, and composer Woody Jackson (who also scored Red Dead Redemption and LA Noire). As they perform, a projector screen will show images of GTAV's fictional setting, Blaine County. Show starts at 9 PM. Tickets for the concert go on sale today (9/27) at 10 AM, and there's also an option than gains you entry to the afterparty...
After the concert, there will be an official afterparty at Le Poisson Rouge, which features DJ sets from Flying Lotus (who hosts FlyLo FM in GTAV) and BBC's Gilles Peterson (who hosts Worldwide FM). It's a late show, happening after the Typhoon show at LPR that takes place the same night.
The next day (10/1), Tangerine Dream, The Alchemist, Oh No, and Woody Jackson will also discuss the game's music at a panel taking place at Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center (144 West 65th Street) at 8 PM. In addition to the game's composers, it also features Rockstar Games music supervisor Ivan Pavlovich and will be moderated by Pitchfork founder Ryan Schreiber. This panel's totally free.

Wavves at Bonnaroo 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Earlier today, we mentioned that a bunch of punkish bands were added to Jay Z's Made In America festival, which goes down at Philly's Benjamin Franklin Parkway (8/31-9/1) this weekend. Since posting, one more band that fits that description has been added: Wavves. They play the Liberty Stage at 2:30 PM on Sunday. Full schedule here and tickets here.
Meanwhile, Nathan Williams and Stephen Pope of Wavves were also revealed (in an interview with Rolling Stone) as two of the radio hosts on the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V game that Rockstar Games is putting out on September 17. You can watch the trailer for GTA5 that came out today that features a song by Chain Gang of 1974 (Remember them? They're still a band.) below.
The game also includes a station hosted by Flying Lotus which will play much of his own music, along with tracks from Tyler the Creator, Outkast, Aphex Twin, Machinedrum, DJ Rashad, Thundercat, Clams Casino, Dabrye, Kingdom and Shadow Child.
Other hosts include Pam Grier, Bootsy Collins, Kenny Loggins and dancing outlaw Jesco White (!). And additionally, the game's score is being done by Tangerine Dream, The Alchemist, Oh No, and Woody Jackson (Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire).
Updated Wavves dates are listed, along with a video, below...
Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli has been working on his new album, Prisoner of Conscious since before the release of 2011's Gutter Rainbows, and after continuously delaying it, he's finally set to release it for real this time. It comes out next week (5/7). The record features contributions from some pretty hot of-the-moment guests, including Miguel ("Come Here") and Kendrick Lamar & Curren$y ("Push Thru"). It's also got a track produced by Harry Fraud ("Upper Echelon"), one produced by RZA with a verse from Busta Rhymes ("Rocket Ships"), and a handful of tracks produced by Oh No. You can stream/watch videos for "Come Here," "Push Thru," "Upper Echelon," "Rocket Ships" and two other cuts from the album below, along with the full tracklist. That's the artwork above.
Talib's next hometown gig is this weekend on Sunday (5/5) at Union Hall, where he'll be providing "music and monologues" followed by improv comedy from Coal, Swag, and Sandino, which will be inspired by Talib's set. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Two hip hop producers, House Shoes and Dabrye, are teaming up for some shows together this month. They've got two shows in California this week, and then they'll come to NYC for a Bandshell-presented show on February 28 at Le Poisson Rouge with Lamin Fofana. Tickets for the LPR show are on sale now. At the moment, those are the only three shows announced for the two producers, and you can see them all in list format below.
House Shoes has been a mainstay as a producer in the Detroit hip hop scene for years, but it wasn't until 2012 that he released his "official" debut album, Let It Go, which features guest spots from Danny Brown, Roc Marciano, The Alchemist, Oh No, Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, Chali 2na and more. Like collaborator The Alchemist's 2012 album, Russian Roulette, Let It Go is a great showcase of the current indie rap scene, but it also works as its own cohesive album of retro-futuristic boom bap. You can stream the entire album and watch the video for the song with Danny Brown, "Sweet," below.
Dabrye hasn't released anything too recently, but like House Shoes, his albums feature a variety of great indie rappers (his 2006 release, Two/Three featured DOOM, Vast Aire, Beans, Guilty Simpson, and others), and his material has been taken on by some pretty great remixers like Kode9 and Flying Lotus. A stream of the instrumental version of his Two/Three LP is below.
