Vin Sol and Matrixxman open their label to a mysterious newcomer.

For the label’s tenth release, Soo Wavey presents the un-Googable En’s Communication EP. Deep-and-dark house and techno mutations ‘Truth’ and ‘And Reality’ fit nicely in the label’s catalog, while ’4U’ is an atmospheric Detro-inspired jam; Vin Sol and Matrixxman take the latter for a jacking house spin on their “Underground Railroad” mix.

Stream the 808 and 909-loaded EP in full below. The vinyl-only release is limited to what else? 303 copies.



Roger Waters wants you to know hes not on Pink Floyds new album: This is not rocket science people, get a grip
Oct 1, 2014 10:58am | Cosequence Of Sound

Roger Waters left Pink Floyd in 1985, and though he reunited with bandmates David Gilmour and Nick Mason during a concert in 2011, he has had no involvement in the band’s activities in the 29 years since. However, after enough people mistook the release of Pink Floyd’s new album The Endless River as a reunion between the three surviving members, Waters felt compelled to address the situation.

In a statement posted to his Facebook, Waters wrote:

Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November. Errhh? I don’t have an album coming out, they are probably confused. David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It’s called Endless River. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that’s 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip.

The Endless River arrives officially on November 10th. While Waters may not be featured on the album, unreleased Richard Wright recordings dating back to 1969 were included alongside new music from Gilmour, Mason, and producer Phil Manzanera. Listen to tw...



Mixtape Of The Week: Young Thug, Birdman & Rich Homie Quan Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1
Oct 1, 2014 10:56am | StereoGum

Birdman isn’t the center of attention on the Rich Gang mixtape, but let’s take a moment for Birdman anyway. For someone who, at least according to conventional wisdom, cannot rap, Brian “Baby” Williams sure has verses on a lot of classic songs. “Big Ballin’,” “#1 Stunna,” “Bling Bling,” “Shine,” “Get Your Roll On,” “What Happened To That Boy,” “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” “We Takin’ Over” — the Birdman verses might not be the moments you remember best from these songs, but they’re there. On top of that, you can make the argument that Birdman is the greatest A&R in rap history. Lil Wayne and Drake and Nicki Minaj are all transformative rap stars, people who have remade the genre in their own images, and they all owe Birdman their career in one way or another. That’s not even mentioning the late-’90s moment where Birdman and his brother Slim took a mob of New Orleans rappers even grimier and more impenetrably Southern than the No Limit roster and made them even more popular than the No Limit roster, all while rapping over beats that sounded like what would’ve happened if the alien garbage snake from Star Wars tried to make Detroit techno. Birdman barely raps at all on Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1, and he mostly limits his on-mic participation to ad-libs and inspirational money-talk mo...


Heres a glimpse of the artwork for David Bowies new album Nothing Has Changed
Oct 1, 2014 10:55am | Fact Magazine

Sharing the pic on Facebook, Bowie added that an explanation of the artwork concept for will appear in this week’s issue of NME (out tomorrow).

Earlier this month the greatest pop star of all time announced a brand new single, Sue (Or in a Season of Crime), which will appear on the compilation alongside various rarities. [via NME]


Christopher Owens – “A New Testament”
Oct 1, 2014 10:50am | CMJ

The music of Christopher Owens has always made it clear that he is a scholar of American music. Father, Son, Holy Ghost, his third and final release with Girls, kicks off with the rollicking Honey Bunny, a song which stands as one of Owens’ all-time best singles and aptly borrows the galloping groove from Buddy Holly’s Peggy Sue to make its point. The album’s other bookend is the gorgeous Jamie Marie, a ballad which Owens told Pitchfork was the album’s “Randy Newman song.” Lust For Life, the Girls cut from Album that drew them critical attention in the first place, has layered, Beach Boys-esque backing vocals that set the song apart from the output of other bands of Girls’ ilk. His first solo LP, Lysandre, found Owens committing to the ’70s John Phillips aesthetic with which he flirted on Father, Son, Holy Ghost.

Owens’ second solo album, A New Testament, finds him making the album he’s spent his whole career up threatening to make. It is a completely straight-faced appropriation of American country and roots music, produced cleanly and without a single cosmetic blemish. Owens’ band of highly skilled musicians goes country with ease, and the album’s cover even has the aesthetic of an obscure late ’80s country LP pulled from the dollar vinyl bin and purchased on the virtue of...

Speedy Ortiz Doomsday
Oct 1, 2014 10:36am | StereoGum

The latest Speedy Ortiz song comes to us via Brooklyn art collective Famous Class, whose monthly LAMC single series solicits an unreleased song from a musician for a 7″ single and asks that musician to curate the B-side. It’s a charitable endeavor, with 100 percent of digital proceeds going to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save The Music. For the October entry in the series, Speedy submitted “Doomsday,” a brightly sung mid-tempo sway that’s both quirky and dramatically sweeping. It’s a pleasant complement to the aggressive guitar onslaught of this year’s Real Hair EP. Hear it below.

Aphex Twin believes in Illuminati, thinks September 11 attacks absolutely an inside job
Oct 1, 2014 10:27am | Fact Magazine

Away for 13 years… and back to his old tricks.

If one thing has been true about Richard D. James throughout his entire career, it’s that he gets a special joy from bullshitting the press just check out our rundown of his various tall tales or that old interview for proof.

It appears that his time away from the music world has not changed his attitude. In a new interview with Q, James explains that after watching YouTube documentaries he’s sure the September 11 attacks in 2001 were “absolutely” an inside job. Plus, it turns out he’s a fan of other online conspiracy theories.

“When you follow stuff on the internet about Illuminati, New World Order, aliens, even if none of it’s true, it’s just a thousand times better than any science fiction film that’s ever been written,” he said. “I do believe pretty much all of it. You can’t only believe things which can be proven. It’s boring. Loads of things are unproven, but it doesn’t stop you believing them.” [via NME]


Owen releasing a covers album, shares Smoking Popes cover; American Football "wouldn't rule out" new material
Oct 1, 2014 10:23am | Brooklyn Vegan

American Football's secret Chicago show in August (more by Jeff Ryan)

As you might have heard, American Football are reunited this year (and they just added four New Year's shows in Chicago), but singer Mike Kinsella is keeping busy in other ways too. On December 2 he'll release an album of covers under his Owen alias via Polyvinyl. Appropriately titled Other People's Songs, the record will feature covers of Lungfish, Blake Babies, Mojave 3, The Promise Ring, Depeche Mode, All, Against Me! and Smoking Popes. The Smoking Popes song he chose, "Under The Blanket," just premiered over at Stereogum and you can take a listen below. He does a great job with it and really makes it sound like an Owen song, which he's proved he's pretty good at on past covers like his version of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale."

In other news, a new article on Buzz Weekly mentions that there may be new American Football material:

"There are no plans to record any new material currently. I wouldn't rule it out, but the logistics of doing it are tough," [guitarist Steve] Holmes said. "That said, I do have a few parts in my back pocket for potential new songs. Mike and I have worked on one of these so far, and we may try to finish it up to include in this run of shows."
The American Football NYC run begins this month with sold-out shows at Webster Hall on 10/10 with S. Carey, 10/11 wi...

Mark Fell collaborator Gábor Lázár preps EP16 for The Death of Rave, hear Extended Play Part 6 now
Oct 1, 2014 10:22am | Fact Magazine

Following a split tape with Russell Haswell, and an album for Lorenzo Senni’s Presto! imprint, Gábor Lázár moves to The Death of Rave for his latest statement.

The Hungarian minimalist shows off his skewed rhythmic modes perfectly on EP16 – there’s no discernible melody, just manic pulses, glitches and comb-filtered hiccups crafted into surprisingly effective chunks. Mark Fell or SND would be a good reference point, so it’s hardly surprising that Lázár is prepping a 2LP (also for The Death of Rave) collaboration with the Sheffield innovator.

If you happen to be in Manchester, you can catch Gábor Lázár performing live alongside Keith Fullerton Whitman and Mark Fell at Joshua Brooks on October 30. Head over to the Facebook page for more info.

EP16 will be released on October 13 via The Death of Rave.

Oct 1, 2014 10:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

Fleetwood Macs Stevie Nicks will release her new solo album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault, on October 7th via Warner Bros. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in full via Amazon.

Serving as the follow-up to 2011’s In Your Dreams, the album was co-produced by Dave Stewart and Waddy Wachtel and features new recordings of previously unreleased material from Nicks storied career.

Most of these songs were written between 1969 and 1987, Nicks described in a press release. One was written in 1994 and one in 1995. I included them because they seemed to belong to this special group.

The Fleetwood Mac singer added, “Each song is a lifetime. Each song has a soul. Each song has a purpose. Each song is a love story They represent my life behind the scenes, the secrets, the broken hearts, the broken hearted and the survivors. These songs are the memories the 24 karat gold rings in the blue box. These songs are for you.”

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing. Below, watch the lyric video for “The Dealer”.
