Einstürzende Neubauten to release World War I-inspired LAMENT on Rough Trade
Oct 24, 2014 5:25am | Fact Magazine

Prisoners’ testimonies used as source material in industrial icons’ new album.

Einstürzende Neubauten have announced a Rough Trade release for their WWI-themed composition that will have its premiere in Belgium next month.

Titled LAMENT, the piece is inspired by testimonies of prisoners of war dating between 1914 and 1916, which the band have been exploring in the sound archives at Humboldt University in Berlin and the Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv (German Broadcasting Archives).

The LP, which is set for release on vinyl, CD and digital on November 7, attempts to evoke “the filth and terror of the industrialized 20th-century world at war with itself,” says Rough Trade, adding that archaic nationalist songs, dadaist writing and algorithmic composition techniques were also an influence.

The piece will be performed in Diksmuide on November 8 as part of an event called Against The Neglection: Gone West, the Fall of Diksmuide 1914-2014, and then taken on tour across Europe  see the dates below. [via RA]

Tracklist:

01. Kriegsmaschinerie
02. Hymnen
03. The Willy Nicky Telegrams

Murlo made his own animated video for Into Mist and its brilliantly surreal
Oct 24, 2014 4:54am | Fact Magazine

He’s just showing off now.

By now everyone should know that Murlo is one of the most exciting new producers around, but they might not have realised that the boy’s got mad skills as an illustrator and animator too. To demonstrate, the Midlands-via-London grime producer has unveiled his own video for Boxed anthem ‘Into Mist’, the lead track on a new EP due on Rinse next month.

Immerse yourself in his surreal world of floating globules and marble statues above and hear another track from the EP, ‘Vertigo’. Don’t miss his FACT mix from the beginning of the year, either.

House hero Mr. Beatnick serves up Marshmallows EP on Tief
Oct 24, 2014 4:24am | Fact Magazine

Sweet treats from the London scene stalwart.

Mr. Beatnick, producer, DJ, NTS host and writer of this parish, will release his first original material of the year next month on Tief, the label arm of the Corsica Studios club night.

The Marshmallows EP follows Nick Wilson’s essential Synthetes trilogy, which appeared on Don’t Be Afraid in three annual doses before being compiled onto a full-length last year. The new four-track EP is due for release at the end of November and features three original tracks and a remix from Melbourne producer Francis Inferno Orchestra.

Wilson also moonlights as FACT’s resident Sun Ra expert, and earlier this year he marked the space jazz pioneer’s centenary with a special two-hour mix and an interview with a Sun Ra reissue specialist. Take a tip from his FACT mix from 2013 too. [via JunoPlus]

Download Run The Jewels RTJ2
Oct 24, 2014 2:27am | StereoGum

RTJ2, the second album from the Killer Mike/El-P rap juggernaut Run The Jewels, was not supposed to come out until Monday. But El suddenly dropped the free-download album, a legitimate contender for Album Of The Year, two hours ago, in the middle of the fucking effing night. (Maybe he wanted to make sure you’d get to hear it before ebola overtakes New York?) The album pushes what these two were doing on their amazing self-titled debut even further, and it will absolutely hurt your brain from the opening seconds on. It is just a beast of a thing. We’ve posted the early songs “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry,” and the Zack De La Rocha collab “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck).” And right now, you can, and absolutely should, download the whole thing right here.

Just call in sick to work tomorrow and just let this thing rip your whole shit up completely. You deserve it. Let’s talk about this thing in the comments section.





Album Stream: Twilight Sad's 10/10-awarded masterpiece Nobody...
Oct 24, 2014 2:19am | Drowned In Sound

To say that DiS loves gloom-shattering Scot's The Twilight Sad, would be a bit of an understatement.

Call us predictable, but a bunch of world-weary men making euphoric, intense, melodic, poetic and late-late-night dark-night-of-the-soul shoegaze gone rogue-pop is 'music we like' in a nutshell. Throw in the fact that they have that exotic (to my South Coast dwelling ears anyway) Scottish burr, and you've got the recipe for a band we love. And since their incredible debut LP seven years we've championed the band, inviting them to perform whenever we're asked to curate a festival stage or book a show, and now they've delivered a new record to further underscore why we - and so many of our readers - adore their hefty 'rock'.

With their new album, Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave, our love has turned into that dangerous kind of love. In fact, restraining orders may be in order, as Dan Lucas has awarded their new album 10/10 and our editor (er, that's me!) thinks this dark-hearted opus should be an eleven outta ten, placing the band up there in the DiS canon with The National, PJ Harvey and Deftones.

In his review, Dan said:

The Twilight Sad gave birth to one of the greatest British debut albums in living memory. That was in 2007 and just seven years later theyve given us an indication that they could attain greatness on a par with MBV or The Jesus and Mary Chain. Hell, carry on like this and well be comparing t...

Skrillexs Chicago show leaves sixteen fans hospitalised
Oct 23, 2014 11:56pm | Fact Magazine

Most of those taken to hospital received treatment for drug overdose.

A total of sixteen people were transported to hospital from a Skrillex show in Chicago last weekend continuing a worrying trend at large US EDM events. An Emergency Medical Services source confirmed this week that the majority of transports were the result of drug overdoses. Several of those transported were taken to children’s hospitals due to being under age.

“The policy in Chicago has been to take anyone who presents to the hospital,” said Andrew Bazos, who oversaw safety for the concerts promoter. “Were there for people who havent been smart, and safety is number one.”

Bazos claimed that “If their parents were there, they would have gone home with their parents… Its not fair to make the promoter take care of kids who dont know how to behave. … Theyre young, and theyre often irresponsible.”

A total of 10,000 people attended the event held at Chicago’s Navy Pier.
