Fleet Foxes Reveal New Album Length, Tease “Folk-Soul” Influence

6 Décembre, 2016 - 22:57

Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold has continued to hint at new material from the band on his Instagram, and in the comments to some of these videos he has responded to fan questions about the upcoming album. The next Fleet Foxes album will apparently span 11 tracks, and be “55ish minutes” long. When another fan commented that it “sounds like there's gonna be some folk-soul songs,” Pecknold responded, “Yeah it wasn't really the plan but it's sort of turning out that way!” Find screenshots of those comments below.

Earlier this month, Pecknold confirmed that Fleet Foxes would be embarking on a world tour in 2017. An announcement that a follow-up to 2011’s fantastic Helplessness Blues was “alllllmost done” came in November.

Grammys 2017: Beyoncé First Artist to Be Nominated in 4 Genre Categories in Same Year

6 Décembre, 2016 - 22:28

Beyoncé led the pack in the Grammy nominations for next year’s award ceremony, with nine nominations in various categories. In addition to nominations for Album, Record, and Song of the year, she also garnered nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, Best Rock Performance, and Best Urban Contemporary Album—that’s four awards in four different genre categories.

In an interview with Complex, the Recording Academy’s Vice President of Awards Bill Freimuth revealed that this is the first time any artist has had nominations in four genres all in the same year. “You’ve had other artists in the past, say Michael Jackson maybe, who have been nominated in that many different fields, but not in the same year and on the same album,” he said. “This is a first timer for us and personally I think it's appropriate and pretty cool.”

According to the New York Times, this year’s nominations bring Beyoncé’s career total to a whopping 62 Grammy nominations, making her the most-nominated female artist in history. Eight more wins will make her the most-awarded female artist in Grammy history, beating out Allison Krauss.

Adult Swim Cancels “Million Dollar Extreme,” Show Accused of Racism and Bigotry

6 Décembre, 2016 - 19:03

Adult Swim has cancelled its show “Million Dollar Extreme Presents: World Peace” after one season, the network confirmed to Pitchfork. The cancellation comes following controversy surrounding the sketch comedy show, which had gained a reputation for promoting racist, sexist, and bigoted viewpoints and symbolism. Its creator, Sam Hyde, is an outspoken member of the so-called “alt-right,” a movement that embraces an ideology of white nationalism.

Comedian Brett Gelman recently severed ties with Adult Swim over the network’s treatment of women and their support of “Million Dollar Extreme.” Tim Heidecker offered his support for Gelman with a statement on Twitter.

Adult Swim did not offer any additional comment on the cancelation.
