Jamie Foxx talks Kanye, Teddy Riley and how he got into music in great Ellen interview
May 6, 2015 6:39am | Fact Magazine

Wanna know what working in the studio with Kanye West is actually like?

Well, according to Jamie Foxx, you get slapped down for being too r’n’b – on ‘Slow Jamz’, at least. The singer and actor was interviewed by Ellen this week, where he spoke candidly – and very amusingly – about how he got into music, his first encounter with Teddy Riley (when he was dressed as a woman), and making ‘Slow Jamz’, ‘Gold Digger’ and more.

It’s a great interview, watch it below.

Bryan Adams Comments On Ryan Adams
May 6, 2015 6:11am | StereoGum
Last week, Ryan Adams took to the stage at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium and played a solo acoustic cover of Bryan Adams' "Summer Of '69." This was more than a decade after he'd kicked a heckler out of the same venue for requesting that song. Depending on who you ask, this was either a funny … More »




Pharmakon announces debut London show and European dates
May 6, 2015 6:10am | Fact Magazine

New York noise artist Margaret Chardiet has announced her debut London performance among a handful of European tour dates this summer.

Pharmakon’s “raw, deeply physical” live show is not to be missed, as FACT’s Maya Kalev wrote in her review of last year’s Bestial Burden: “Chardiet took complete possession of the space as she stomped around, not so much screaming as hurling cries from somewhere deep inside, and thumping metal with abandon. The force and volume she wielded with her body was a match for the backdrop of power electronics that filled the space, and though from my vantage point she appeared to be little more than a black-clad speck, her control and ownership of the vast room was impressive.” Sign us up.

Chardiet plays Tufnell Park Dome on June 4. See the rest of her forthcoming dates below, including gigs in Barcelona, Berlin and Athens.

Tour dates:

13/05 – Brooklyn, NY

Video : Retiree :
May 6, 2015 6:04am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Sydney four-piece Retiree have announced a new three-song EP titled Gundagai slated for release on June 23rd via Rhythm Section International/Plastic World. With the announcement, they have shared the title track via one of three conceptually related yet geographically different videos, filmed between Sydney, Melbourne and London. The song could possibly be fall in the category of the passé world music genre highlighted by tropical rhythm and guitar work. The Jack Peddey shot visual follows a man dancing this taking in the Victorian country side in Australia. Watch and listen below.

Does Giorgio Moroder have his own synth on the way?
May 6, 2015 5:41am | Fact Magazine

The ‘Déjà vu’ video shows us a glimpse of the ‘MoroderNova’.

The video for Giorgio Moroder’s recent collaboration with Sia has thrown up an interesting detail – the eagle-eyed people at Sonic State have spotted a synth that looks like a custom version of the Novation’s compact MiniNova synthesizer.

Novation has remained tight-lipped as to whether the MoroderNova is a one-off or expected to go into production, but you can check it out in the video for ‘Déjà vu’ below (it’s at the 2:45 mark).

Love Songs For Robots finds Patrick Watson in fine voice, but not his finest

The Canadian balladeer's 5th LP sees his ambitious melodic pop take a turn towards longer, darker tracks, with mixed results.

Human Future - Spectrum
May 6, 2015 5:11am | Drowned In Sound

Human Future are one of those bands that specialise in all the nebulous 'post' genres - punk, hardcore, metal: the genres that tried to break with what had come before and which all ride that line between melody and noise where so much great music lives. But what can start as a movement to tear down what came before can sometimes lead to a new set of 'rules' being made, and new orthodoxies being established.

The press release says that the label Truthseeker Music was established with the explicit aim of not releasing anything predictable and mostly Spectrum avoids this stated pitfall, even though it does feature all the elements you might expect from the post-hardcore/alternative metal world. That is to say: long songs with complicated, non-traditional structures; a mix between melodic and brutally atonal riffs; mostly shouted vocals with some serious-sounding spoken word sections.

Another potential problem with this kind of music is that it can sound a little too cold and calculated - proficiency for the sake of it. Sometimes it can leave one unmoved, as songs feel like a succession of ideas welded together with little thought to the progression. Getting rid of traditional song structures doesn


Vote Furry: Gruff Rhys on Politics, Mwng and The Future
May 6, 2015 4:56am | Drowned In Sound

Timing, as the old adage goes, is everything. So the fact that the Super Furry Animals have reunited to reissue their Welsh language masterpiece Mwng on its 15th anniversary, and are embarking upon a comeback tour precisely two decades on from their first live shows, feels a particularly neat and pleasing turn of events.

Aphex Twin has opened another SoundCloud account

user48736353001 is no more.

If you’re trying to find the tracks Richard D. James has been uploading to the user48736353001 account over the past few months but find they’ve disappeared, don’t panic – he’s migrated them to another account, 8user48736353001. He’s also uploaded 15 fresh tracks in the past 24 hours, a few of which are streaming below.

Intriguingly, the previous account has now been named ‘Caustic Window’ – a former alias and lost album released through a Kickstarter campaign last year. It’s currently empty, but worth keeping an eye on. [via RA]

Kanye West in talks to have a show on Vice
May 6, 2015 4:53am | Fact Magazine

Kanye West is reportedly in talks to have his own show on Vice’s new TV channel. 

As the NYT reports, the magazine-turned-media-goliath is on the verge of getting its own cable channel, giving the company a mainstream outlet for its non-news programming like Action Bronson’s food show Fuck, That’s Delicious.

Vice plans to take over H2, the History Channel spin-off owned by A&E Networks (itself owned by Hearst and Disney), filling it with shows on sport, fashion, food and travel, including Ellen Page’s Gaycation and the self-explanatory Weediquette. There’s no detail on what form Kanye’s show might take, but we’d guess it might focus on his current fashion obsession.

In other ‘Ye news, he recently wrote an essay about the American dream and renamed his forthcoming album SWISH.

Capac - Sea Freeze
May 6, 2015 4:46am | Drowned In Sound

Naming their debut album Sea Freeze was a good move, because it seems as though it took quite a while for UK-based electronic collective Capac to thaw out. The quartet have spent most of their career moving at a glacial pace, forming in 2007, releasing an EP in 2010 and then seemingly going into hibernation for several years. With Stuart Cook, Matt Parker, Gary Salomon and vocalist Kate Smith scattered across various parts of the UK and restricted to exchanging parts and piecing tracks together via email, it was always going to take time for them to get off the ground, but they released the Nested EP as a primer for further activity last November, and have now finally brought an album into the world, the product of years of fragmented work.

Other bands would have been broken by the logistical stress, and indeed, it seemed possible that the Capac project had ceased to exist long before now, but their recent resurgence has led to the creation of a frequently beautiful record that urges you to listen to it from start to finish, albeit in its quietest tones. Constructed around a leitmotif that's introduced in opening track 'Yoona' and rears its head in fascinating ways throughout, drifting between instruments, moods, and even (as on the title track) time signatures. The single idea is married to tracks that can shift gears from sparse to cavernous in the blink of an eye; the introduction of the rumbling bassline of 'Prophet of...


The Beatles didn
May 6, 2015 4:17am | Fact Magazine

Further empirical evidence of what we already knew was true: Migos are better than The Beatles.

The notion that The Beatles revolutionised pop is a truism the boomer generation loves to hang on to, but a new study claims that the Fab Four’s influence on music is dwarfed by the impact of hip-hop.

A group of researchers from Queen Mary and Imperial College London measured musical patterns in the US pop charts between 1960 and 2010 to pinpoint trends and track their duration. Gathering data through Last.fm, the group used signal processing and text-mining to analyse the musical properties of songs.

Their findings suggest that far from the “British invasion” of the 1960s causing a revolution in the pop charts, the musical style of those bands
