The Weeks Best Vinyl Releases
Mar 8, 2014 10:00am | Fact Magazine
This year, weve brought in several new weekly features to FACTs schedule.
Joining My Favourite Record and Forgotten Classics is The Weeks Best Vinyl Releases, a Saturday column by our friends at Soho record shop Phonica. It sounds obvious, but few people are onto great records as quickly as a great record store, and after years spent discovering gems in Phonicas end of year lists, it made sense to give them a regular space on FACT. Every Saturday morning, theyll run down the five vinyl records that you should grab this week.
The most memorable drop in a while from Tusk Wax, Weatherall-friendly hypno-beat with a jagged acid centre. Also, we all know that a good track title is half the battle, and ‘Juno How I Feel?’ is pure class.

The FACT playlist: our 10 picks of the week
Mar 8, 2014 9:25am | Fact Magazine
Every Saturday, we post a run-down of the music – old and new – we’ve most been enjoying in our UK and US offices that week.
No emphasis on the boxfresh or the under-the-radar: just an honest account of what’s spent most time on the respective office stereos, with (where possible) links to the music.
Don Peake - The Hills Have Eyes
Synth drone and rattled bone – amidst a profusion of vintage horror reissues, One Way Static’s recent vinyl pressing of the OST for Wes Craven’s 1977 shocker is a (mouldy) peach.
Henry Collins - Music of Sound
As Shitmat, Henry Collins used to make goggle-eyed breakcore for Planet Mu, but this high-concept curio is a world away from the sonic shoe pies of old. Music of Sound presents the soundtrack to 1965′s The Sound of Music with all the speech and music forensically removed; the result is an eerie ambient collage of wind, bird chatter and creaking floorboards. Less ‘My Favourite Things’, more the pottering of lonely goatherds.
100s – IVRY
The glossy-maned Berkeley rapper looks to the ’90s for this highly listenable mixtape on Fool’s Gold, but he’s no earnest East Coast revivalist instead it’s the top-down G-funk of Snoop Dogg in his youthful prime (plus a solid dose of Rick Jame...

Watch sets from Omar Souleyman, Loefah, RP Boo, Big Narstie and more from Just Jams cancelled Barbican show
Mar 8, 2014 8:27am | Fact Magazine
Multimedia epic originally planned for Barbican went ahead in Brick Lane, and you can now see most of it for yourself.
A couple of weeks ago East London-based web channel Just Jam were told that their planned event at The Barbican, billed as a multimedia epic, had to be cancelled due to “concerns raised by police.”
The move confounded both organisers and supporters and left Just Jam with no choice but to relocate to a Brick Lane venue and carry on as best they could with a line up of performers that included Omar Souleyman, Loefah and MC Chunky, one half of Mount Kimbie, RP Boo and dancer Lightbulb, Big Narstie and JME, secret guest SOPHIE and more.
Videos of the event are now available via Just Jam’s website archive – aside from the SOPHIE set.
For more on the cancellation at the Barbican you can head over to The Guardian where sometimes FACT contributor Melissa Bradshaw opined on the London’s police long history of getting in the way of such events.

Mar 8, 2014 8:00am | Brooklyn Vegan
Little Dragon's next album, entitled Nabuma Rubberband, is due in May. This coming week, like they did recently on Letterman (video below), they'll preview some of it down in Austin at SXSW where one of their shows is the Thursday BrooklynVegan free day party. Meanwhile, we cornered bassist Freddy & drummer Erik & asked them 5 QUESTIONS:
1) What is your favorite venue to play in the country and why?
LD: Our favorite venue to play could be the Henry Miller library in Big Sur. Open small outdoor stage surrounded by the giant redwoods trees, what more to say??

Download DJ Shadows footwork remix of 70s Dutch prog rocker outfit Supersister
Mar 8, 2014 7:11am | Fact Magazine
Legendary Californian producer continues modern reinvention with unlikely remix material.
Following his remix of Machinedrum’s ‘Eyesdontlie’ last year, DJ Shadow is giving away a new footwork inspired production.
This time the source material for the song comes from 70′s Dutch prog rock band Supersister. Shadow’s been a fan of the band for a long time and their keyboard player, Robert Jan Stips, is the man you hear on Endtroducing…‘s ‘Organ Donor Remix’ and UNKLE’s ‘Rabbit In Your Headlights’. Shadow met Stips in 2010 while touring his Shadowsphere production, a meeting that apparently led to talks of collaborations and remixes.
Elaborating on the meeting, Shadow said:
And so earlier this week he put up his remix of Supersister’s ‘Dona Nobis Pacem‘ on Soundcloud. The track twists the atmospheric original along current populist lines with a clear hat tip to the footwork and modern beat styles that have been a staple of Shadow’s recent live shows.
You can hear and download the remix for yourself below.
New York rockers The Rapture reportedly break up according to DFA Records
Mar 8, 2014 6:42am | Fact Magazine
Selt-Titled Mag and DFA Records report split despite lack of official statement.
Self-Titled Mag have reported that NYC indie rockers The Rapture have split up, a situation backed up by DFA Records label manager Jonathan Galkin who told the magazine:
The band broke through in 2003 with their debut album Echoes and supported Daft Punk in 2007 after the release of their second LP, Pieces Of The People We Love.
The split was hinted at by a Red Bull Music Academy press release naming frontman Luke Jenner as ‘formerly of The Rapture.’ Jenner had temporarily left the band in 2008, while bassist Mattie Safer had quite in 2009. The band released their last album, In The Grace Of Your Love, in 2011.
Late last year members of the band took part in a benefit for Iranian rock band The Yellow Dogs. [via NME]
