The weeks best mixes: Drexciyan wavejumpers, Brazilian hip-hop and locked grooves
May 27, 2016 11:31am | Fact Magazine

Each week, FACT trawls through the untamed world of free mixes, radio specials and live blends so you dont have to.

If you’ve ever wondered what a mix entirely made of locked grooves would sound like, you’re in luck this week. There’s also a monster electro mix recorded in the heart of Drexciya’s natural habitat, meditative ambient from Laraaji and Tinder-inspired techno from Machine Woman.


Laraaji
NTS Radio, May 24

Its been quite a newsworthy week for ambient fare, with Moby sharing four hours of really, really, quiet music and Norwegian veteran Biosphere announcing the vinyl reissue of his 1994 classic album Patashnik. Then there’s the ambient guru himself, Laraaji, who graced the NTS studio with his celestial presence on Tuesday for a special live-streamed session of his meditative, cloudy, zither-led drone. The pigeons in Gillett Square never looked so cosmic.


Machine Woman
Juno Plus Podcast 139

Following the release of her killer Genau House record, FACT one to watch Machine Woman delivers a 40-minute mix of original material. Titled ‘A Tinder date with Bruce’, it’s a tongue-in-cheek introduction to her world of failed romanc...



Choir! Choir! Choir! sings Ahead by a Century in a touching tribute Gord Downie
May 27, 2016 11:27am | Chart Attack

Lately, the heartaches have been heavy and many. It's comforting to see people get together and turn that shared hurt into celebration. Toronto's open-invite singing group Choir! Choir! Choir! have become a trusty outlet for the music lovers' collective grief and gratitude.

At the beginning of the month, they gathered 1,999 people at Massey Hall to perform "When Doves Cry." Earlier in the year, they arranged a 500-person rendition of "Space Oddity."

On Wednesday, after we'd just learned that Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip has terminal cancer, they turned their weekly meeting into a tribute.

The group maybe 150 singers dusted off their cover of "Ahead by a Century" from The Tragically Hip's 1996 album Trouble at the Henhouse.

A song that lives immortally in campfire sing-alongs and lighter-up live performances, it's the perfect choice for a Choir! Choir! Choir! toast. It's a loving display for a man who's made it his life's mission to tell distinctly Canadian stories. Give him the Order of Canada already.

Sheer Mag make TV debut on Seth Meyers watch
May 27, 2016 10:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

For a band that eschews typical publicity practices, Philadelphia rockers Sheer Mag have grown quite a name for themselves. They don’t have a publicist, they don’t do many big interviews, and they don’t have any social media accounts. Based simply on the power of their blend of ’70s hard rock and garage punk, they’ve grown big enough to book spots at the likes of Coachella and Primavera Sound. And now they’re only going to get bigger, because last night they made their television debut on Seth Meyers.

Supporting their recent IIEP, the Philly five-piece performed “Nobody’s Baby”. With frontwoman Tina Halladay belting out a guttural chorus with lines like, “I’m nobody’s baby/ I’m nobody’s girl,” they couldn’t have chosen a better song to exemplify their ethos for their national debut. Watch the performance above.

PREMIERE: Dead Messenger party their way to oblivion in Master Plan video
May 27, 2016 10:45am | Chart Attack

A month ago, we premiered "In The Dark," a gritty track from the Montreal psych rockers Dead Messenger. The chaotic single was the first taste we got of their album, The Owl In Daylight. Today, we premiere the video for "Master Plan," a three and a half minute cut from that record, which is out today. The song is a definite change of pace, exchanging distortion for colour, slowing things down a touch and opting for clean vocals and an infectious, bouncing bassline rather than anything abrasive.

"I feel like it has this kind of O.M.D-meets-Springsteen-at-a-Clash-after-party-somewhere-in-Ashbury-Park kind of sound," says lead singer and guitarist Roger White. "At least I hope it does..."

YouTube Video

The fun, light-hearted video shows Dead Messenger performing on stage alongside a group of quirky party goers. Disco balls, lip stick, colourful outfits, dry humping on stage... sounds about right.

"Master Plan is about Social Darwinism," writes lead singer and guitarist Roger White. "I guess its about excess and consumption and questioning if were living out some kind of Master Plan as we party ourselves into extinction. Its also our not so subtle tribute to the Material Girl.

If you feel like walking hand-in-hand with Dead Messenger down the celebratory pathway to extinction, you can catch them at S...


Bat for Lashes shares spooky video for Sunday Love watch
May 27, 2016 10:37am | Cosequence Of Sound

Bat for Lashess forthcoming album The Bride tells the sad tale of a woman who loses her fiancé to a car crash on the day of their wedding. In her previous video for “In God’s House”, we saw Natasha Khan’s bride character coming to terms with the death of her loved one, and now the story continues.

In her latest clip, this time for “Sunday Love”, the bride wanders about the same California desert before encountering a random leather jacket-clad man on the road. Together, they both stumble upon some freaky flying saucers, which leads to big trouble.

The visual was co-directed by John De Menil and can be seen above. The Bride, the follow-up to 2012s The Haunted Man, is due out July 1st via Echo Label Limited/Parlophone.
