Mineral @ Mohawk - 8/17/2014

Veteran emo band Mineral are reuniting for their first tour in 17 years, which begins with four sold-out NYC shows next week (starting 9/4). However, like American Football did in Chicago, the Austin band decided to bless their hometown with a surprise show last night (8/29). Billed as "The Parking Lot" (whose name is a Mineral song and whose logo resembled The Power of Failing's artwork), Mineral strongly hinted on their Facebook that it would be them, and opener Jess Williamson later revealed it on Instagram, writing:

The secret's out: I'm very honored to announce that tonight I will be opening for "The Parking Lot" which is all the members of Mineral playing Mineral songs. Just me and my band at 10 and then they play at 11. EndSerenading was one of my favorite records as a wee little 14 year old girl trying to find my angsty place in the word. You can probably still email me at so honored and excited for tonight!!
Doors for the show opened at 9 PM, and the line was already down the block by 7. The show (a benefit for SXSW Cares) took place in the venue's smaller indoor room, and was (of course) entirely sold out. Mineral split the set pretty evenly between their two full lengths, though leaned a little more heavily on EndSerenading, and also included both sides of the "February / M.D." single. Were y...

Watch the video for MDNSGN Txt (Msgs) taken from his Stones Throw debut album
Aug 30, 2014 10:44am | Fact Magazine

A zen like approach to beats.

Ringgo Ancheta, aka MNDSGN (mind design), is the latest addition to the Stones Throw roster. Over the past few years Ancheta has been quietly but steadily making moves within the Los Angeles beat scene, collaborating with the likes of Jonwayne (on whose Stones Throw debut he featured) and most recently picking up a Breakfast Show on Boiler Room.

Ancheta’s debut album is titled Yawn Zen and was released this week on vinyl and digital, following from a cassette of outtakes released on Leaving Records in early August.

With a background unlike that of most modern day producers – he was raised in a forest as part of the Filipino arm of the Aum Supreme Truth Cult – Ancheta has developed a relaxed sound over the years, with a keen ear for melodies. Speaking on his process for the album, Ancheta told Stones Throw:

“I’ve allowed myself to study the absence of daily struggle and its effects, and began to subconsciously paint that vibe in the music. Yawn Zen comes from a very neutral place that we, sometimes, are too busy to realize is there.”

The label unveiled a new video for album cut ‘Txt (Msgs)’ which precisely highlights Ancheta’s taste for dreamy, sweeping melodies.

Yawn Zen is out now on vinyl and digital via Stones Throw.</...

Black Thought, Meek Mill, Danny Brown, Jay Electronica and Action Bronson among Rap Quotes installed in Philadelphia
Aug 30, 2014 8:56am | Fact Magazine

Art rap project moves to Philadelphia after New York and Los Angeles.

The Rap Quotes project is without a doubt one of the best art projects to deal with rap’s relationship with cities. Conceived and executed by Jay Shells, Rap Quotes involves the designer printing rap lyrics that namecheck specific locations onto official looking street signs before putting them up at the exact spot.

After starting in New York City in March 2013, Shells took Rap Quotes to Los Angeles earlier this year. He then returned to the Big Apple in the spring and this week he was in Philadelphia, putting up signs from the likes of Will Smith, Meek Mill, Action Bronson, Jay Electronica, Danny Brown and Black Thought across the city.

New York magazine Animal once more has a full gallery of Rap Quotes’ Philadelphia movements as well as a short interview with Shells on how locals received his artistic endeavours, including one older man who apparently ran out of his house in socks asking what was going on before approving of the project’s public art approach and noting that “Oh, okay, I know Jay Electronica, very good.”

Head over to Animal to view the whole gallery and words from Shells, as well as a video documentary of his Los Angeles efforts. We’ve selected a few of our favourites from the Philadelphia trip below. Next up is Atlanta and Shells also says...

Courtney Love: My memoir is a disaster
Aug 30, 2014 8:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

Courtney Loves long-awaited memoir, The Girl with the Most Cake, doesn’t seem to be hitting bookshelves anytime soon. Originally scheduled for release in December 2013, the autobiography remains unfinished and, according to Love, is a “disaster” and “nightmare.”

Speaking to Paper magazine (via ABC News Radio), Love said her relationship with the book’s ghostwriter is “just not working.” She added, “I never wanted to write a book in my entire life. It just sort of happened.”

If and when the memoir is released, it will cover Love’s life up until 2006 at which point it will end. “It has to stop,” she explained. “What happens from 2006 on in the book is my personal business. I’ve been discreet from that time on, and I want to keep it that way.”

Nas Time Is Illmatic documentary set for release on October 1, watch the trailer
Aug 30, 2014 8:07am | Fact Magazine

The celebrations for the landmark debut of Queensbridge’s finest culminate with release of documentary this October.

When Queensbridge rapper Nas released his debut, Illmatic, twenty years ago, people knew it was something special. Like all good things however, it has only gotten better with age.

Nas has been celebrating the album’s 20th anniversary all year long: first with the release of a deluxe edition and then with an extensive tour that saw him perform the classic to worldwide audiences. The celebrations culminate with the release of the Time Is Illmatic documentary this October.

Announced earlier this year, Time Is Illmatic was directed by One9 and looks at the making of Nas’ debut as well as the conditions that influenced its creation, the legacy of Nas’ family (his father was a jazz musician) and the reception it received from his peers.

A trailer for the documentary was released yesterday, which you can see below.

The documentary premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in April this year and will open on October 1 via Tribeca Film. It’s not clear at this time if the release date is US-only or worldwide.

On October 2 Nas will embark on another tour to celebrate the release of the documentary with screenings and performances of the album. See below for dates.
