Todd Terje Delorean Dynamite Video
Oct 21, 2014 9:32am | StereoGum

When crafting the live visuals to accompany his It’s Album Time anthem “Delorean Dynamite,” Norwegian producer extraordinaire Todd Terje sought out Frank, a fellow Norwegian who happened to own a Delorean. So when Frank decided to sell the car, Terje and director Espen Friberg decided to make him an advertisement. Thus, the “Delorean Dynamite” video ended up looking like an ’80s infomercial and in fact functions as a real-life advertisement for a car you can actually buy on Norwegian Craigslist. According to a press release, Frank is also accepting offers at delorean_dynamite@hotmail.com — serious inquiries only. Don’t let the gimmick distract you from the fact that “Delorean Dynamite” burble-bangs and It’s Album Time rules. Meet Frank and his vehicle below.

Hannibal Buress slams Bill Cosby: Youre a rapist
Oct 21, 2014 9:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

On stage, comic Hannibal Buress usually tackles slice of life stuff with a decidedly absurdist twist. However, during his Thursday night show in Philadelphia, Buress’ set took a distinct turn toward a grittier reality as he unleashed a scathing verbal assault against comedy legend and hometown hero, Bill Crosby.

As Complex points out, the crux of Buress’ rant was that he finds Cosby’s self-established position as a family-friendly role model rather hypocritical, given that Cosby’s been accused of rape by 13 separate women since the mid-1970s. He went as far to call Cosby a “rapist,” and encouraged audience members to do their own research. “You leave here and Google Bill Cosby rape. Its not funny. That shit has more results than Hannibal Buress.”

Buress also called out Cosby for using his fame and standing as a sitcom icon as an excuse to talk down to younger black people.

Below, you can read the full transcript of Buress’ tirade and watch by fan-shot footage of the rant.

Thirteen? And its even worse because Bill Cosby has the fucking smuggest old black man public persona that I hate. Pull your pants up, black people, I was on TV in the 80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom. Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby. So, brings you down a couple notches.

I dont curse on stage. Well, yeah, youre a ra...



Watch Pearl Jam Cover The Who & Tom Petty In Milwaukee
Oct 21, 2014 9:15am | StereoGum

At a Friday night show in Moline, Illinois, Pearl Jam randomly decided to play their 1996 album No Code in full. (They also played a new song called “Moline.”) Last night, playing Milwaukee’s BMO Harris Bradley Center, the band busted out another superfan treat, playing all of 1998′s Yield in the middle of a titanic 36-song set. They also brought out Cheap Trick guitarist and Wisconsin hero Rick Nielsen (suddenly very in demand among the ’90s alt-rock set) to cover the Who’s “Baba O’Riley.” Later on, Eddie Vedder did a solo cover of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” They got really, really big crowd singalongs on both those songs, too. Watch fan-made videos below.

Youth Worship (ex-Asobi Seksu) released debut EP and video (streams), playing Tran Pecos w/ Dinner & more
Oct 21, 2014 9:14am | Brooklyn Vegan

NYC shoegazers Asobi Seksu went on indefinite hiatus in 2013 and guitarist James Hanna now has a new band, Youth Worship, which formed early this year. Youth Worship finds Hanna in more rocking mode, and "Pink Snow" from their just-released debut EP is a real stomper. (The rest of the EP is a little more in Asobi style.) That song's video, directed by Bradley Cantor, makes its premiere in this post and you can watch it, and stream the whole EP, below. The band have put the finishing touches on their first album which features guest appearances by some of the Boris folks and will be out in early 2015.

Youth Worship will play a hometown NYC show on November 3 Trans Pecos with new Captured Tracks artist Dinner, as well as Night Squad. That's their only upcoming date.

Stream French For Rabbits Spirits (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 21, 2014 9:07am | StereoGum

French For Rabbits occupy the space where gently sighing lullabies and otherworldly post-rock overlap. We were introduced to the New Zealand duo via “Woke Up To A Storm,” a sweeping and sophisticated bit of ethereal chamber-pop. There are more dreamy theatrics where that came from: Spirits, the band’s debut full-length, is a fully-formed vision come to life. It’s tender and intimate yet ambitious as the sky is wide, and you can hear the whole thing below.

Watch the video for Todd Terjes Delorean Dynamite and buy a real Delorean in the process
Oct 21, 2014 9:01am | Fact Magazine

Norwegian crossover star Todd Terje has revealed the latest video from It’s Album Time, ‘Delorean Dynamite’.

Shot lo-fi, the video hawks a rare Delorean DMC-12 and closes with an email address where you can get in touch and buy it. As a press release clarifies, it’s owned by this guy, and features in the visuals for Terje’s live show:

This is a real classified for the sale of Franks Delorean. Frank was kind enough to let Todd Terje use the Delorean for his live visuals. Eventually, Frank decided it was time to sell his prized automobile, so in return for his generosity, Terje offered his music and Terjes collaborator, Espen Friberg (the director who made the ‘Leisure Suit Preben‘ video) offered to make him video to help him sell it. The result is this bizarre advertisement/music video, which is currently sitting somewhere on Norways Craigslist. The email address above is real. SERIOUS ENQUIRIES ONLY, PLEASE.

For more Terje on FACT, read Angus Finlayson’s review of It’s Album Time, Chal Raven’s examination of the album, and Bjørn Schaeffner’s interview with Terje.


My Favourite Record: Waze & Odyssey
Oct 21, 2014 9:01am | Fact Magazine

My Favourite Record is a new feature where we ask musicians we rate from across the spectrum to pick their most cherished album – a development of our occasional On Record feature, and a chance to take a peek at the albums that maketh the artist. Today’s entry:


DAFT PUNK
Homework
(Virgin, 1997)

Picked by: UK house bump ‘n’ grinders Waze & Odyssey. 


“This album has been heaven and a hindrance at times. Heaven in the sense that all the techniques used on the album have helped in educating us along the way, from the very beginning. The arrangement of each track to the synths and drum machines used, and the styles of compression and FX that are used. It opened up our minds. Hindrance in the sense of not being able to apply it to any of our tracks in the same way, which has become more frustrating than you can possibly imagine.

You can remember the first time you heard it out, the first time it came on to the speakers. From clubs to house parties to home listening, it was a firm favourite when it first hit from Paris to Peckham, Brighton to Brixton. They turned their hand to lighter more melodic cuts while also showing us their adept skill at making full on big room screechy numbers.

We’ve dropped ever...

Hubie Davison readies Khayyam Grey EP of peak-time pleasures for Leisure System  stream Get On
Oct 21, 2014 8:58am | Fact Magazine

Irish producer Hubie Davison returns to Leisure System next month with his second release for the classy Berlin label.

The three-track Khayyam Grey EP has a dash of funk and soul in its blood, apparently drawing on Bill Withers and Otis Redding as much as the analogue-y house of Werkdiscs and Sound Signature, and features ‘Get On’, a riotous slab of peak-time psychedelia, which you can stream below.

The other two cuts are the title track, which the label says “takes cues from Daphni’s stand-up-and-shout, sample-heavy house”, and ‘Vowels’, which first appeared on the Leisure System compilation LSR-LSD1 and turns up here in extended and altered form.

Stream the luscious ‘Get On’ below and grab the Khayyam Grey EP from December 1.


Pangaea, The Field and Lucy to play forest rave Together at the Threshold
Oct 21, 2014 8:58am | Fact Magazine

You read that right – London’s Studio 338 are gearing up to provide a “forest rave” in the city.

Partnered with cider makers Kopparberg, Studio 338 have decided to knock up an “enchanted forest” on their massive terrace that should include more trees, ivy, vines, living walls, graffiti, videos and loads more. It’s all in aid of Together at the Threshold, which on Saturday October 25 brings a host of massive names to Greenwich. There’s Swedish innovator The Field, Italian techno producer Lucy, Brit bass don Pangaea, Jonas Kopp, Forward Strategy Group and FJAAK already signed up to provide musical accompaniment to the forest frenzy.

If you’ve not managed to snag tickets yet, you might want to head out to Phonica Records who are giving away an absolutely massive 100 tickets to the event. 50 of the “golden tickets” will be hidden inside random record sleeves throughout the store and 50 more will be given away to customers purchasing records from the artists who are playing Together at the Threshold. Better get digging then.

For more information, check the flyer below; head here to grab tickets.


Crowbar touring, playing Saint Vitus w/ 'NOLA' screening
Oct 21, 2014 8:52am | Brooklyn Vegan

Crowbar at Gramercy Theatre in September (more by Mathieu Bredeau)

New Orleans sludge mainstays Crowbar have spent much of 2014 touring behind their excellent new LP Symmetry in Black. Now they've announced yet another tour to go down before the year ends, this time with Unearth and Black Crown Initiate. That tour rolls into NYC on December 8 at Saint Vitus. The Vitus stop (presented by Noisey) will also include a screening of Noisey's 'NOLA' documentary, which was made by former BV writer Fred Pessaro and is really worth checking out. Tickets for that show will go on sale this Friday (10/24) at noon.

Crowbar also just put out a new video for "Symmetry in White" from their new LP, which you can watch below. The final NOLA episode will be revealed soon, but 'til then you can watch the latest episode, with the full list of tour dates, also below...

Charli XCX London Queen Lyric Video
Oct 21, 2014 8:45am | StereoGum

Charli XCX’s Ramones-inspired new single “London Queen” has been growing on me the more I listen to it. It’s certainly kitschy, but it’s also pretty damn catchy, even if the lyrics leave a lot to be desired compared to the goth-pop of something like “Nuclear Seasons,” which was Charli’s first major collaboration with producer and songwriter Justin Raisen. (He worked on some other songs from Charli’s first record, had a hand in “Boom Clap,” and co-produced Sky Ferreira’s debut alongside Ariel Rechtshaid.) The lyric video for “London Queen” is done in the colorful and bubbly animation style of basically every ’90s edutainment computer game. Watch below.

R.I.P. Orbital electronic duo announce breakup
Oct 21, 2014 8:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

British electronic duo Orbital have once again called it quits.

Co-founder Paul Hartnoll announced the group’s breakup Tuesday in a statement posted to their official website. “Weve had our ups and downs, and its not always been easy, but Ive loved my time with Orbital,” he wrote, before adding, “But nothing lasts forever and it’s time to stop.”

Comprised of Paul and his brother Phil, Orbital emerged out of London’s acid house scene in the late 1980s. The duo made a name for themselves thanks to their distinct knack for improvisation and roots in both electro and punk rock. They really hit their stride, however, with the back-to-back releases of their second and third LPs — 1993’s Orbital 2 and 1994’s Snivilisation — which featured several simultaneously charting singles and parlayed into soundtracking gigs for The Saint and Mortal Kombat, as well as a spot at Glastonbury.

Orbital initially broke up in 2004, but reunited in 2009 to headline The Big Chill Music Festival. They subsequently released what would be their final album, 2012’s Wonky, and performed at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony alongside Stephen Hawking.

In the same statement announcing Orbital’s disbandment, Paul Hartnoll also revealed the formation of a...
