EDDY ATLANTIS $AFFIRE (Who You Gonna Be)
Aug 27, 2014 7:12am | Abeano

Riding in on a warm rush of synths and gooey backing vocals that are practically holy, all rise for the debut single from EDDY ATLANTIS. The London-based artist has been low-key working on his production alongside rappers Xander Ghost and Ibn Inglor for a while now, but makes his solo debut this summer with the Boxroom Mansion EP. ‘$AFFIRE’ is the lead single, by the singer-songwriter’s own admission finding itself somewhere between Travi$ Scott and Toro Y Moi, and sees him working his gravelly vocal chops around a hook that demands to know “who you gonna be tonight?”

The Brazilian businessman buying up all the worlds records has put in an offer for the Birmingham shop selling its stock for £1 a pop

He really is trying to buy all the records in the world.

Zero Freitas has become the worlds most famous record collector overnight. Featured in a New York Times interview earlier this month, the Brazilian bus magnate is described as buying up all the worlds vinyl records, his multi-million strong collection bolstered recently by the recent acquisition of two of the largest collections around that of million-record man Paul Mawhinney and the late Music Man Murray.

On the other side of the world, just a few days after the interview was published, Dan Reddington of legendary Birmingham record shop Reddingtons Rare Records announced that he was putting his entire stock of close to 75,000 records up for sale at £1 a pop, regardless of rarity or value. Go figure What happened next somehow seems too obvious to be true.

As reported by ITV, Zero Freitas has caught wind of Dan Reddingtons fire sale and put in an offer to buy every single record in his collection for a total of £23,000, with Zeros New York buyer Allan Bastos confirming the offer: I spoke with Mr Freitas and we are interested. The condition is that Mr Reddington does not take anything out of the stock and, of course, he has to cancel the (public) s...


The best weekend for live music of my life: Green Man 2014 - The DiS Review
Aug 27, 2014 6:53am | Drowned In Sound

It would take a lot to get me to call Green Man Festival anything other than my favourite weekend of the year. Its always unrivalled in my calendar, and universally adored by all who fall into its embrace. But even by its own dizzying standards, 2014s Green Man was a true stand out in a history of highs, striking complete bullseyes in atmosphere, curation and execution.

Recently, Green Man has undergone a little bit of feet-finding. In its beginnings, it was purely a folk affair, but over the years it has let more general alternative influences bleed in at the edges, mainly to its credit. But the pendulum swung too far the other way a few years ago, with Ben Howard sitting as a thoroughly awkward headliner. Im not one for begrudging others their tastes, but this undoubtedly felt like mission drift.

In stark contrast, this years Sunday headliners of Neutral Milk Hotel arent just an incredible coup of a booking, but a flag planted right in the centre of the old folk-freak Green Man heartland. There can be no moaning about how the festival isnt the same as it used to be with these at the head of the bill (nor with the incredible, stately set from Bill Callahan earlier in the evening). And whats more: they blow the place away in a perfect hurricane of a set; Mangums astonishingly strong voice soaring across the chaos of fuzz and waltzing rag-and-bone orchestras in an all-time highlight set for Green Man.

And this capped of...


"We've got a great sense of urgency now": DiS meets The Flatmates
Aug 27, 2014 6:52am | Drowned In Sound

Twenty-five years ago, the smart money was on The Flatmates to "do a Primitives" as it was called back then and gatecrash mainstream radio and eventually the official charts. Formed in Bristol during the summer of 1985 by guitarist Martin Whitehead and (then) drummer Rocker, their adrenalin fuelled fusion of The Ramones meets The Ronettes saw them quickly rise to prominence as part of the C86 indiepop scene.

Nevertheless, despite being on the cusp of commercial success, the band imploded around the end of 1989, seemingly never to be heard of again. Until the summer of 2012 that is, when the aforementioned founder members decided to get the band back together. Recruiting Lisa Bouvier on vocals, Brian Price on drums and a succession of bass players "just like the old days", they set about writing a bunch of songs culminating in last year's seven-inch 'You Held My Heart', the first Flatmates release to feature brand new material since 1987's 'Heaven Knows' single.

Last month, DiS caught up with Whitehead, Rocker and Bouvier prior to their set at Indietracks and found a band eager to embrace the future rather than their past.

DiS: This is your first time playing Indietracks. Have you been wanting to play the festival ever since the band reformed?

Martin Whitehead: It was two years ago at Indietracks 2012 when me and Rocker were standing at the side of the church chatting and peo...

Cold Specks - Neuroplasticity
Aug 27, 2014 6:44am | Drowned In Sound

Cold Specks first record was a remarkably mature and well-developed record, one of the best of the year. She disowned it almost immediately. Over a year ago I saw Al Spx voice, guitars and songs of Cold Specks perform a set where she hated playing the songs of her debut. When I saw her a few months ago, shes become more detached from them still. From almost immediately after releasing her debut, Spx was more than ready to release Neuroplasticity.

These songs evidence her eagerness to move into new territory, with swirling infernos of rasping New Orleans horns and guttural tones right at the hearts of dark red textures. Its a wildly fiercer sound than before. And the main difference is Spx willingness to release the tensions she builds in her arrangements, rather than damming them up as she did on I Predict A Graceful Expulsion. Those songs hinged on subtlety. These lurch into sudden tempo changes, set songs ablaze with roaring noise, and bury double tracked vocal takes laced with decay and distortion.

It gets to the point of outright menace. Spx was never going to win optimist of the year, but the songs of her debut glowed from the uplift of soul performed without winking. On Neuroplasticity, the textures allow Spx to let loose with a threatening and desperate tumult of misery. Shes fixated on bodily destruction at every turn people hung, drawn and quartered; knives going in; bodies needing to be kept at bay. And with the albums fin...

A Decade of Space Disco: whats eating Oslos club scene?
Aug 27, 2014 6:28am | Fact Magazine

With Todd Terje’s It’s Album Time one of 2014′s biggest crossover records, and the likes of Prins Thomas and Lindstrom international stars, Norwegian dance music should be at an all-time high. However, everything’s not always as it seems. FACT’s Chal Ravens flew to Oslo’s Øya Festival to investigate, speaking to Terje, Thomas, DJ Strangefruit and key figures from Norway’s new wave of electronic artists.


It’s two in the morning in Oslo’s Dattera til Hagen club, a three-storey venue that spills onto an open courtyard where a crowd of unfeasibly wholesome-looking Norwegians chain-smoke like it’s the 20th century. Upstairs, they’re dancing to sets from rising Detroit DJ Jay Daniel and, on the floor above, local talent Andre Bratten, who came out of nowhere last year to release his debut album, Be A Man You Ant, on Full Pupp  making him one of the youngest torchbearers of the disco scene that emerged in tandem with Prins Thomas’s label a decade ago.

Everyone in the club, it appears, is either drunk or steaming drunk. This is notable because the pair of gin and tonics I’ve just bought cost a fraction under 200 kroner (around £20). Getting pissed in this country requires a little organisation and a lot of cash; conveniently, Norwegians tend to have both of these in spades. I’ve come to the club near the water...
