Roger Harvey made a video for "City Deer," playing shows with Bouncing Souls, The Loved Ones & more (dates)
Nov 24, 2015 8:34am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
Last month, Roger Harvey released his debut album Twelve Houses, a nice dose of heartfelt poppy indie that we said fans of Neutral Milk Hotel, The Antlers, Death Cab and Youth Lagoon should check out. One of the album's more rocking songs, "City Deer," has been given the video treatment. It juxtaposes shots of Roger and his band playing in an open field against a whimsical romantic storyline. The video was directed by John Skip Volcsko (full credits here) and premieres below.
Roger also has dates coming up, including an opening slot on one of the Bouncing Souls holiday shows at The Stone Pony. He plays the December 28 show, which also has The Loved Ones and Static Radio NJ. Tickets are still available.
He also has some 2016 shows with The Loved Ones (but not their NYC show, which Cayetana play). All dates are listed below...

My Morning Jacket perform Tropics on Colbert watch
Nov 24, 2015 8:20am | Cosequence Of Sound
We haven’t heard much from My Morning Jacket since they released their Red Rocks-set music video for “Compound Fracture” back in September. However, this week, Jim James & co. come roaring back with a four-night residency at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. Last night, the band got a chance to warm their chops with a guest spot on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. There, they gave a magnetic performance of The Waterfall track “Tropics (Erase Traces)” with the accompaniment of a string quintet. Catch the replay below.
Although My Morning Jacket have kept a relatively low profile the last few months, their music’s still regularly making headlines: Recently, Strand of Oaks covered “Wonderful (The Way I Feel)” and Giorgio Moroder remixed “Compound Fracture”.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart covered Tori Amos' "China"
Nov 24, 2015 8:06am | Brooklyn Vegan
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart recently released their new "Hell" single that comes with Felt and James covers (order yours), and now they did a one-off cover of another artist: Tori Amos. Singer/main member Kip Berman recorded it himself, and it's a stripped-down take on "China" off Tori's 1992 debut album Little Earthquakes that was reissued earlier this year. Kip writes on Facebook:
Have a listen to a simple home recording I did tonight of "China" by one of my heroes Tori Amos over on Stereogum. Our last show for a while will be in Hong Kong on November 29, so I thought this would be a nice way to say thank you to all our fans and friends around the world. Without you, none of this would be possible. We get the chance to play the music we love, meet incredible people and see places we'd never get to see. To everyone that's ever supported us, let us crash on their couch, or just said hi after a show - thank you. x KipThat Hong Kong show is the day after they play the Neon Lights festival in Singapore with Chic, Mogwai, Sun Kil Moon, Blackalicious, and more.
Meanwhile, Tori Amos released the original cast recording for her musical with Samuel Adamson, The Light Princess, last month. Kip tweeted, "New @toriamos is really good. I guess when you're magnificently talented and a visionary, that...

Stream Slackk and Dullah Beatz Forest Walk, from Boxeds first single
Nov 24, 2015 7:04am | Fact Magazine
After two years of club nights showcasing instrumental grime and a pair of free compilations, Boxed makes its label arm official in December.
The first 12″ is a various artists affair showcasing some of the sometimes-unsung producers who’re played regularly at the night. Trends, Spokes and Lloyd SB all contribute solo tracks, while Boxed co-founder Slackk teams up with Dullah Beatz – best known for his trap-cum-grime demolition jobs and collaborations with Big Narstie – for ‘Forest Walk’, which combines the longing melodies of Slackk’s debut album Palm Tree Fire with wonky drums and Dullah’s trademark ‘huh!’ sounds. They should feel out of place, but totally work.
Stream ‘Forest Walk’ below, and order Boxed 001 here.

Lisbon trio Niagara launch Ascender label with new 12 stream Beto
Nov 24, 2015 6:33am | Fact Magazine
Lisbon crew Niagara have started their own label.
After introducing themselves to the world via the city’s essential Principe Discos imprint, releasing their Ouro Oeste EP in 2013 and Ímpar earlier this year, the hardware-loving mutant house group will launch Ascender next month.
The first release is a fresh 12″ from Niagara, also titled ‘Ascender’ and led by the fizzing, super-squelchy house stomp of ‘Beto’ stream that below and grab the record on December 7.
Niagara’s house leanings are a somewhat distanced from the burgeoning batida scene typically profiled on Principe, but you’re here now, so check out scene elder DJ Marfox’s FACT mix and rewind to Robert Barry’s 2013 feature on the sound of Lisbon’s ghettos.

YouTube channel Majestic Casual shut down over copyright infringement
Nov 24, 2015 5:58am | Fact Magazine
Majestic Casual, a YouTube music channel with over two million subscribers, has been shut down for violating copyright restrictions.
The channel’s massive archive has been wiped from the site, with a message reading: “Majestic Casual has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted.”
Focusing on electronic music from the EDM end of house to hip-hop beatmakers, the channel launched in 2011 and in 2013 released a two-disc compilation featuring SBTRKT, Flume and Nosaj Thing. They also had a reputation for covering their videos with images of lightly attired babes, triggering an avalanche of eyerolls from certain quarters of the dance community.
As Mixmag points out, the takedown follows news that YouTube owner Google plans to provide up to $1 million (£650,000) in legal fees to defend the targets of copyright takedowns though it’s not clear if Majestic Casual would qualify for this support if legal proceedings are brought.
Fred von Lohmann, Google’s copyright legal director, wrote in a blog post: “We are offering legal support to a handful of videos that we believe represent clear fair uses which have been subject to DMCA takedowns.
“We’re doing this because we recognise that creators can be intimidated by the D...

Leon Vynehall’s next release brings a low-lit drifter to the dancefloor.
‘Midnight on Rainbow Road’ was released as part of Rush Hour’s second Musik For Autobahns compilation this September, with the Brighton producer tapping into a downbeat Balearic mood just the thing for a long, late night drive.

Kranky artist Loscil creates ambient music app that sounds different every time
Nov 24, 2015 4:45am | Fact Magazine
Vancouver’s Loscil, aka Scott Morgan, drummer for Destroyer, has released his new EP as an interactive smartphone app.
Adrift features four “endless” tracks which “use structured random selection to continuously play with no beginning or end.” Each track, named after a ghost ship, is made from a combination of acoustic and electronic elements which Morgan recorded and produced so that the program randomly weaves them together on the fly. The result is an EP that sounds different each time you play it.
Adrift also features Elisa Thorn on harp, Kelly Wyse on piano and Mark Bridges on cello, and it arrived on iOS yesterday check out the trailer below. The EP is Morgan’s second of the year, following February’s for Greta. [via RA]

Nov 24, 2015 4:26am | Fact Magazine
The man with the fastest fingers in grime teams up with rising MC Capo Lee.
Capo has been around for a while, but he’s enjoyed a breakthrough 2015 with a regular presence on radio (both spitting on sets and through single ‘Liff’.) He’s also formed an alliance of sorts with DJ/producer Spooky, teaming up on several tracks and sets.
Welcome to Clartsville sees the pair team up over six tracks. Some are new, some (such as ‘666 God’) have been on radio rotation for a while, but the whole thing is monstrous. Stream it below, and download it here.

Nov 24, 2015 4:19am | Fact Magazine
Prins Thomas has lined up a double EP to follow his ace Paradise Goulash triple-disc mix from last month.
Toransu comprises a few new tracks with reworkings from his III album and a remix of ‘Stockholm Express’ by Norwegian producer Chmmr, as RA reports, and it marks the 50th release on Prins Thomas’ Full Pupp label, which turned 10 last year with a bumper 32-track compilation.
FACT’s Ben Murphy recently sat down with the always-entertaining Oslo DJ for some pointers on “kicking against the pricks” and the art of the DJ.

Ringo Starr is auctioning copy #0000001 of The White Album
Nov 24, 2015 4:08am | Fact Magazine
The Beatles drummer is selling off the ultimate trophy records for fans of the band.
Ringo Starr is actually selling over 1,300 items on Julien’s, the Beverly Hills auction house that specialises in celebrity tat. In amongst Starr’s jewellery, art and more is his original UK pressing of The Beatles’ classic White Album, numbered 0000001.
According to Dangerous Minds, its widely accepted that copies one to four of the record are in the possession of Beatles members, but it was also assumed that 0000001 belongs to John Lennon (a view echoed by Paul McCartney, who once said that Lennon shouted loudest for it.) Psyche! Turns out Ringo had it all along, and apparently had it stowed away in a London bank vault for over 35 years.
Bidding starts at $20,000, but will presumably rise to much higher. Proceeds from the auction will go to the Lotus Foundation, which Starr and his wife Barbara Bach founded to fund, support, participate in and promote charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare in diverse areas.
Chance your luck over at Julien’s. [via The Vinyl Factory]

Max D announces third album Boost hear Rhythm Automator
Nov 24, 2015 3:48am | Fact Magazine
The Future Times boss unveils a twisted new track.
Max D is behind some of the most singular house records of recent years, refining his groggy, sun-dappled approach to the ‘floor on 2013’s excellent House of Woo (as Maxmillion Dunbar) and this year teaming up with Baltimore sampler Co La for a freaky album on PAN.
In February he’ll be sticking with the more concise Max D moniker for his third solo full-length, titled Boost, which he describes as “seven songs acting on instinct”. Mixed in Amsterdam with Jordan Czamanski, one half of Juju & Jordash, the album is due out in February on vinyl and digital, led by the decidedly wonky ‘Rhythm Automator’, which you can stream below.
Catch up with Max D’s standout FACT mix and go record shopping with the Future Times boss on FACT TV.
