Orbital split up again, Paul Hartnoll announces solo album 8:58
Oct 21, 2014 3:32am | Fact Magazine

Orbital have disbanded for a second time.

Phil and Paul Hartnoll have gone their separate ways again. “Orbital had stopped working properly. We had a great four years since getting back together in 2008, but it was time to move on,” said Paul in a statement.

The British rave institution split in 2004 but reunited five years later for a string of shows and festival appearances, including an appearance at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony in London, and the release of their 2012 album Wonky.

The end of Orbital doesn’t mean an early retirement for the brothers, though, as Paul Hartnoll has announced a new album under the alias 8:58, set for release on February 16 on ACP Recordings. The album’s title track, which is available as a free download and video, is introduced with a monologue on the theme of time by actor Cillian Murphy.

“Ive always had a thing for clocks and for time as a powerful force – but also the way it oppresses you,” he explains. “Its one of those things I keep coming back to. For me, 8:58 is a moment of choice. Its almost 9 oclock. Are you going to school? Are you going to this job you hate? Everybody faces that decision now and again. 8:58 am is when youve got to make up your mind.”

The veteran producer has also announced a tour for next February, with tickets going on pre-sale to fans from his new website

Stream Black Milks new album If Theres A Hell Below in full
Oct 21, 2014 2:02am | Fact Magazine

The Detroit producer and lyricist unveils his fifth album.

Curtis Cross, better known as Black Milk, has shared his newest LP with the world one week ahead of its release. Entitled If There’s A Hell Below, the album features collaborations with Bun B and Pete Rock. 

If There’s A Hell Bellow follow’s last years’s No Poison, No Paradise but carries less darkness according to the rapper. ”I’m still giving you a glimpse of different struggles for the point of view of an inner city youth but rhyming in different patterns over instrumentals that sound different from anything I’ve done in the past.” he said.

“I’m never one to say which album of mine is the best, that’s for the fans to decide,” Cross said of the album, “but at this point I feel like I’m making the best music of my career on a creative level and on a technical level. I think you’ll hear that in this new album.”

If There’s A Hell Below is released on October 28 through Computer Ugly Records. Check the tracklist below and stream the album in full via The New York Times.

Slipknot - .5: The Gray Chapter
Oct 21, 2014 1:48am | Drowned In Sound

The loss of Paul Gray haunts Slipknot's first record in six years. As it should. Up until his sudden death in 2010, Gray served as bassist, key songwriter and, in a band that aggressively embraces the idea of extended family like few others, brother. Throw in the firing of drummer Joey Jordison last December and the structural damage looked beyond repair.

As it turns out, the Slipknot of 2014 are a reinvigorated unit. Pain and angst are still worn as badges of honour, but there's considerable weight attached now. .5: The Gray Chapter wears its scarred heart proudly on its sleeve from the opening seconds as Shawn 'Clown' Crahan intones that 'XIX' is not a song for the living, but for the dead. Fittingly, it resembles a funereal dirge, the march numb and naked as Corey Taylor takes point, delivering the first of many on-the-nose lyrical exchanges of an hour that features his best vocal work in a decade. His words are far from subtle, but they never were, really. At his best, he flits from guttural growl to melodic inflection with a grace not usually associated with thrash metal.

Slipknot's fifth volume finds Taylor indulging in plenty of both. There's a conviction in his voice that has been absent for some time. It helps him sell lines like "The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you/The world will never know another man as amazing as you" as found on the manic 'Skeptic'. Not much to look at on paper, perhaps, bu...


Young Karin - n1
Oct 21, 2014 1:48am | Drowned In Sound

Its sometimes a wonder that theres room for fresh partnerships in Icelands compact but prolific music scene, but Young Karin represent just that - they formed in the winter of 2013 after Logi Pedro Stefánsson - who committed Icelandophiles may recognise as one eighth of dance pop act Retro Stefson - met the bands titular singer Karin Sveinsdóttir at a song contest. After a short stint under the name Highlands (nixed due to a pre-existing band with the same name), they now go under their current moniker and are ready to release their debut EP no.1 into the wider world.

Berlin kicks proceedings off strongly, with the city providing the backdrop for the story of a summer romance that has gone cold as winter draws in - distorted bass and hip-hop influenced beats give way to icy-cold synths, which swirl around the wistful chorus I still think of that summer/when the sun shined bright and we were in love/now its cold outside/Berlin in wintertime. Hearts raises the bar further, running a glitched-up vocal sample across a chilled, minimal backdrop while Karin sings of guilt and loneliness - conflicted between hiding her feelings after a one night stand (I hope theyll never, never know/how low our hearts can go.), and a desire for companionship (I hate sleeping alone/Im scared when no-ones round.). Its a perfectly-formed slice of bittersweet pop, and the best indication here that Young Karin could be a significant ad...


Lorde enlists Tinashe, Kanye West, Grace Jones and more for Hunger Games Soundtrack
Oct 21, 2014 1:13am | Fact Magazine

Hunger Games Soundtrack" src="http://factmag-images.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Lorde190314.jpg" width="685" height="453" />

The New Zealand singer-songwriter has curated the upcoming film’s official soundtrack.

Lorde has taken a break from her busy touring schedule to put together the soundtrack for blockbuster film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Featured on the OST are a diverse array of artists from Grace Jones to Bat for Lashes as well as a number of curious collaborations. 

The soundtrack’s opener brings together Lorde, Stromae, Haim, Q-Tip and Pusha T whilst there is also a joint effort from Miguel and The Chemical Brothers. Kanye West has provided a rework of Lorde’s ‘Flicker’.

“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” Lorde said in a press release. “The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”

You can hear Lorde’s ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ and check the full tracklist below.
