  • Ms. Sharon Jones! is a new documentary that follows Sharon Jones (and her Dap-Kings) through 2013, the year she and the band released their amazing Give the People What They Want and when she was diagnosed with cancer. The film was directed by two-time Oscar winner Barbara Kopple and will premiere in Seattle on September 2 at the Northwest Film Forum. Check out the trailer below. [The 405]

  • It’s been 16 long years since The Avalanches made their debut and today they have finally released their sophomore album, Wildflower. If you’re an apple music user you can stream the entire album now. If not, you only have one more week to wait before it’s officially released. [SPIN]

  • Former Guns N’ Roses members Matt Sorum and Izzy Stradlin teamed up together on a new single called “F.P. Money.” On Facebook, Sorum wrote, “It was great to reconnect again and make Rock N Roll with this great singer, songwriter, guitarist and all around cool dude. Music for music’s sake, it was really organic and fun.” Though the full single doesn’t come out until next month, you can hear the teaser below. [CoS]
