Watch Win Butler & Régine Chassagnes Surprise DJ Performance At The Louvre
May 27, 2016 8:59am | StereoGum
Arcade Fire at the LouvreYesterday, the street artist JR opened a show at the Louvre, which, as I understand it, is a pretty famous museum in Paris. (Sadly, this JR is not JR Smith; I would absolutely pay for a transcontinental flight if that guy had a Louvre show.) And as part of the opening festivities, he brought … More »


Gordi Nothings As It Seems Video (Stereogum Premiere)
May 27, 2016 8:59am | StereoGum
GordiWe named Gordi an Artist To Watch on the strength of her stunning Clever Disguise EP. The young Australian singer-songwriter's winsome ballads course with complex currents of emotion, and they're lifted to new heights by rich electro-organic production. One great demonstration of that formula at work is EP opener "Nothing's As It Seems," which … More »

Outer Spaces, the current band of Cara Beth Satalino (ex-Witches), release their debut album A Shedding Snake today on Don Giovanni.

The Avalanches launch hotline for fans to hear new music
May 27, 2016 8:36am | Fact Magazine

The Australian act are strongly rumoured to be releasing a new single soon.

The Avalanches continue to lay breadcrumbs for their expected comeback album, with a hotline number you can ring to hear what we’re assuming is new material.

As a Reddit user noticed on some posters spotted by journalist Matthew Horton around London, you can call +44 800 098 8938 for “preview screenings” of their recent teaser video. What you actually get is a loop of what’s believed to be new Avalanches music.

Looks like @TheAvalanches might even be serious about this. pic.twitter.com/r7BTtjVm6P

On putting the track through Shazam, it was recognised as an Avalanches track called ‘Subways’, which definitely isn’t on 2000’s Since I Left You.

The track first featured on a teaser video that emerged earlier this week called ‘Since They Left Us’, which featured interviews with artists strongly expected to appear on their next album including Danny Brown and Ariel Pink.

As Stereogum points out, another new track from the video has been recognised by Shazam as a track called ‘The Wizord Of Iz’ by an act called ...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens soundtrack vinyl etched with ridiculous 3D spacecraft holograms
May 27, 2016 8:28am | Cosequence Of Sound

The music in Star Wars: The Force Awakens might not measure up to John Williams greatest work, but the Force is undeniably strong with the vinyl soundtrack. Vinyl geeks and Star Wars nerds alike will be able to appreciate the soundtrack’s unique artwork, which features 3D holograms of a TIE fighter and the Millennium Falcon etched into the actual records.

Created by Tristan Duke — the same artist responsible for the floating angel artwork on Jack Whites Ultra Lazaretto vinyl — the holograms spin around as the record moves on the turntable, creating a hovering effect that’s well, its pretty goddamn cool, is what it is. At this rate, the soundtrack for Episode VIII will come in the form of an actual spaceship, so better start saving up those portions.

The double-LP Force Awakens vinyl will be released via Disney Music Emporium on June 17th, and its currently available to pre-order from Amazon for $47.99. Seems like a pretty fair ask for the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. Check out a photo of the vinyl below, and see the video above for an in-depth look into how it was made.

Neil Young and Stephen ColbertEarlier this week, crotchety old rock legend Neil Young turned heads when he said that he was totally OK with the idea of Donald Trump using his music at campaign rallies. That's pretty weird! And you'd think it would be the sort of thing that Stephen Colbert would bring up when he had Young … More »

Radioheads secret weapon Oliver Coates brings the spirit of Arthur Russell back to the dancefloor
May 27, 2016 8:12am | Fact Magazine

You might not recognise the name, but Oliver Coates has just dropped one best albums of the year.

Upstepping sees the UK musician fuse electronic arrangements with elements of deep house, techno, ambient and rattling footwork in a gorgeous collection of minimalist dance tunes. But what may come as a surprise is that hes a classically trained cellist who graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with the highest grades in the institution’s history. Upstepping is crafted entirely from chopping, distorting and reworking sounds from his cello, creating music that evokes the stark landscapes of Autechre (a group he’s been obsessed with since his teens) as much as the disco experiments of his closest comparison, avant-cellist Arthur Russell.

2016 is set to be Coates biggest year. As well as the release of Upstepping and programming a weekend of “deep minimalism” performances at the Southbank Centre, his cello playing with the London Contemporary Orchestra has formed the backbone of the new Radiohead album, A Moon Shaped Pool. He created the rhythmic drive of Burn The Witch by picking up a plectrum and just twatting the cello, he says, while the orchestral elements composed for ‘Daydreaming’ were hailed by Thom Yorke as the sound of the album.

Hes also worked with Jonny Greenwood before, playing on the Radiohead guitarist’s soundtracks for Paul Thom...

Swiss electro-pop originals Yello announce first ever live shows and new album Toy
May 27, 2016 7:51am | Fact Magazine

The electro-pop jokers will take to the stage in Berlin this year.

Swiss duo Yello, who created some of the most raucously inventive and goofy electronic music of the 80s, will return with their 13th studio album on September 30, titled Toy.

“Taking in liquid techno, continental torch songs and myriad gleaming points in between, Toy is unmistakably the sound of Dieter Meier and Boris Blank gleefully working at the top of their game,” the press release states.

But more excitingly for fans of the ‘Oh Yeah’ innovators, Dieter Meier and Boris Blank have also announced the first live shows in their 38-year career at Berlins Kraftwerk on October 26 and 28. The dup will be joined on stage by guest singers Malia and Fifi Rong as well as many of the live musicians who helped to record Toy.

With the decision to play live for the first time ever at the Kraftwerk Berlin, a new era for Yello begins said Meier. “Get out of cyberspace and into the live experience, with operatic staging in the aesthetics of the Yello videos.”

Blank added: At the center of our show are more than 20 Yello songs that I have ‘reloaded’ for live performance. Of course, we will play the Yello hits, but also tracks from the new album Toy to the future through the past.”

Tickets for both shows are on sale now. W...
