System of a Down make Armenia proud with massive 37-song set
Apr 23, 2015 3:12pm | Cosequence Of Sound

System of a Down embarked on their “Wake Up the Souls” Tour earlier this month to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. To cap off the excursion, the band, made up entirely of Armenian-American musicians, performed their very first concert ever in Armenia.

SOAD put on a free show in Yerevan’s Republic Square, where they played for nearly two-and-a-half hours and delivered some 37 songs. “In Armenia, our status is unparalleled,” frontman Serj Tankian said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “I don’t want to use any monikers like the Beatles or anything, but it’s a unique kind of thing. So we want to go there and play for the people, which we’ve never done as System of a Down.”

More than just remembering and asking for reparations for the 1.5 million Armenia deaths in 1915 at the hands of the Ottoman Empire, Tankian said the tour was about ending all genocide. “Part of it is bringing attention to the fact that genocides are still happening, whether you use the word ‘genocide,’ ‘holocaust’ or ‘humanitarian catastrophe. None of that is changing. We want to be part of that change. We want the recognition of the first genocide of the 20th century to be a renewal of confidence that humanity can stop killing itself.”

Frank Ocean has legally changed his birth name
Apr 23, 2015 2:48pm | Fact Magazine

The man born Christopher Edwin Breaux has now legally become Frank Ocean.

Since his meteoric rise, we’ve always known Christopher Breaux by his musical moniker Frank Ocean. Now the singer has legally changed his name to Frank Ocean following delays that help up the proceedings since last year. Ocean followed all of the rules required for a legal name change including making announcements of it in local newspapers to ensure he is not attempting to commit fraud. According to TMZ the process was held up by “a driver’s license issue”.

In other news, Ocean, who just finished a tour with James Blake, will release his wildly anticipated new album this summer.

Will Oldham

Bonnie "Prince" Billy (aka Will Oldham) and Watter (mem Grails, Slint) are teaming up as Bonnie Stillwater and will release The Devil Is People next week (4/28) via Termporary Residence Ltd. The title track is out now, and it's got Will Oldham's unmistakeable voice over some laid-back, trippy psych rock. It sounds great -- check it out below.

To celebrate the new album, Bonnie Stillwater are teaming up with the beer company Stillwater Artisanal Ales, and will do pop-up shows at five different NYC bars on Saturday (4/25), playing one song at each. They'll hit Jimmy's No. 43, Cooper's Craft & Kitchen, Fool's Gold, Spuyten Duyvil, and The Well, and each bar will have the Bonnie Stillwater record and Stillwater beer available to purchase. Chavez's Matt Sweeney (who's played with Oldham before) is drumming at these. The schedule for when they'll be at which bar is on the flyer below.

Then, on Sunday night (4/26), the members of Bonnie Stillwater will head to The Studio at Webster Hall for a free party that they're DJing.

In related news, Bonnie "Prince" Billy released a split 7" with Dutch singer/songwriter broeder Dieleman last week for Record Store Day. You can watch the video for Bonnie's stripped-down, somber "Gloria" from that split, with the Bonnie Stillwater song stream and flyer, below...

UK psych band Loop got back together a couple years ago for ATP End of an Era, and then toured around Austin Psych Fest last year, including a show at Le Poisson Rouge here in NYC. Now they're back in the studio, with three releases due out this year. The first of which is Array 1 which will be out June 22 via ATP. The four-song, 32-minute platter (EP? LP? Mini-LP?) is the first new music from LOOP since 1990's A Guilded Eternity and features the current lineup of Robert Hampson (vocals/guitar), Hugo Morgan (bass), Wayne Maskell (drums) and Dan Boyd (guitar). Stereogum debuted "Precession" from it today which, like most of their music, builds on one riff and expands. There is more than a little '90s alt-metal (Hum or Quicksand at their droniest) here as well. Check it out below.

The band will be playing some dates in the UK around Array 1's release and those are listed below.

FIDLAR

It's been a little while since we've heard from L.A. punk rockers FIDLAR, who released their fun-as-hell self-titled album back in 2013. (Their "Cheap Beer" still rules hard.) But the band has just roared in out of nowhere with a brand new song called "40 Oz. On Repeat." It's a fantastically bratty anthem about … More »



DJ Premier to score and executive music produce VH1 film The Breaks
Apr 23, 2015 1:46pm | Fact Magazine

The hip-hop legend will play a major role in VH1’s fictional film set during the rise of the hip-hop industry.

Later this year VH1 will release The Breaks a film that uses a fictional story to examine the history of the hip-hop business. Appropriately DJ Premier, a man who shaped hip-hop history through his production work on NasIllmatic, Jay Z‘s Reasonable Doubt, Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die and more, will compose the film’s score. In addition to providing music, DJ Premier will also serve (in what’s certainly a familiar role) as executive music producer.

The film is the project of Seith Mann, best known for his directing work on shows including The Wire, The Walking Dead, and Homeland. The Breaks tells the story of three friends in New York circa 1990 who attempt to find their way in the hip-hop industry. It is expected for release this fall.
