The artwork for the new Government Plates reissue has been unveiled via Reddit — it features the original artwork covered up by some 3-D renderings of items like a pill bottle and a grenade.

Sun Kil Moon The Possum
Nov 21, 2014 7:36am | StereoGum
Something that’s gotten a bit lost in the recent War On Drugs saga: Mark Kozelek can write an absolutely incredible song. There were a whole bunch of them on Benji, the astounding album that Sun Kil Moon released earlier this year. And now there’s another one. Kozelek is going to release a new single called “The Possum” in a couple of weeks. It’s a nine-minute narrative song that moves through different stories and moods and musical movements, and it’s all about the things that might go through your head after you see a possum dying on the sidewalk. Parts of the song also comprise some of the prettiest music you’ll ever hear about hanging out with Godflesh. Like some of the songs on Benji, the song features the former Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley backing Kozelek up. Listen to it below.

Following on from his single Protector SE5 on Mixpak, along with recent work with fellow London-based Chilean rapper Blaze Kidd, Palmistry shares with us his hallmark range on Ascensión. Neon, Fruit Ninja-like slashes dice up watermelon emojis with each note on the euphoric Steal a x ft Jazzy Grez, whereas Pree is far darker and more intimate. The words I was dying/No-one helped me,” barely make it out over soft chords that wash over the brutal edges carved out by the table in the artwork. Sobs and laughter appear at the start and near the close respectively, but the two samples become more indiscernible with every repeat. Simply put: this release is genius. Listen below.

House of Lords votes to crack down on online ticket touts
Nov 21, 2014 7:06am | Fact Magazine
Touts will now have to reveal their identity and the face value of the tickets they’re selling.
The House Of Lords has voted to add a new clause to the Consumer Rights Bill forcing online ticket touts to be more transparent. The amendment, which was approved by 183 votes to 171 yesterday, will force ticket resellers on sites like Viagogo, Seatwave and StubHub to reveal their identity and the face value of the tickets as well as giving details like seat numbers and booking references.
They will also have to state whether the terms and conditions give the promoters the right to block entry if they discover the ticket was resold (which is usually the case if you look at the small print of your tickets). The ticket reselling sites would also be obliged to ensure this information is given.
Not everyone in the live music industry supports the amendment, particularly those ticket sellers who have got into the secondary ticketing market recently. Live Nation’s Ticketmaster, for instance, reckons that regulating ticket reselling will push touts onto online platforms outside the UK’s jurisdiction, leaving customers more likely to be the victims of fraud. The proposals have some support in parliament, but the narrow margin of approval in the Lords vote yesterday suggests that it won’t be an easy victory in the House of Commons.
The amendment stems from a report published...
Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is putting together French Band Aid with Vanessa Paradis, Lou Doillon and more
Nov 21, 2014 6:17am | Fact Magazine
The former First Lady of France helms another charity single.
Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is putting together a French version of Band Aid to raise money for the campaign to fight Ebola in west Africa.
The model/singer/wife of Nicolas Sarkozy has recruited singer Vanessa Paradis, Téléphone rocker Louis Bertignac, Lou Doillon (daughter of Jane Birkin), guitarist Jean-Louis Aubert, jazzy singer-songwriter Zaz, experimental rock band Shaka Ponk, rock singer Izia Higelin, jazz guitarist Thomas Dutronc (son of Jacques Dutronc), rock band BB Brunes and rapper Joey Starr to appear on ‘Noël est là’ (‘Christmas is here’). The track is being released by Mercury Music Group, part of Universal.
Initial reports suggested Daft Punk would be involved, but unsurprisingly they’re staying out of the spotlight once again, according to Mercury’s statement on the participating artists. ‘Noël est là’ will be released on December 1 and will be accompanied by a video, presumably the usual hands-on-headphones thing filmed inside the studio. All proceeds will go to Band Aid.
Bob Geldof’s Band Aid 30 reboot has been mired in controversy, with Ghana-born Afrobeats star Fuse ODG turning down an offer to appear on the single after being “shocked and appalled” by the song’s new lyrics. [via Guardi...

Watch a human-sized synthesizer in action at RBMA Tokyo
Nov 21, 2014 5:19am | Fact Magazine
A Japanese designer has unveiled an enormous synthesizer on the streets of Tokyo as part of RBMA’s month-long festivities.
The plainly named Human Sized Synthesizer was invented by Daito Manabe as an interactive instrument that everyone can have a go at, with basic touchscreens and palm-sized knobs for adjusting the sound. The synth “is designed for people to experience intuitively,” he says. “I wanted this to be very simple so kids can also have fun.”
Watch it in action in the video below, with luminaries like Carl Craig having a knob-twiddle and a group of Japanese musicians managing to wrangle a decent hip hop beat out of it.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has been uploading his drum covers of Foo Fighters and Coldplay to YouTube
Nov 21, 2014 4:19am | Fact Magazine
The gloves come off.
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech hasn’t been much in demand at Stamford Bridge this season, what with being usurped by a younger, taller and better model but at least he’s taken his time on the bench as an opportunity to work on his hobbies.
The Czech footballer has been uploading homemade videos of himself drumming along to two of his fave indie tracks, Foo Fighters’ ‘Walk’ and Coldplay’s ‘Clocks’. He’s not half bad either, although the best bit is watching him mouth the lyrics. Such concentration!
“It is not perfect but I wanted to do it in one take without correcting it,” he wrote on the Foo Fighters video, referring to them as his “favourite band”.
On the Coldplay cover he added: “I filmed myself to compare with older video to see the progression, but you asked for more.”
As NME points out, he appeared on BBC’s Football Focus last year jamming with Queen’s Roger Taylor, and he’s also performed Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ at a live show. It’s safe to say he’s got marginally better taste than the England team and their godforsaken compilation album.
