Jamie xx and Romy Madley Croft skate through confetti in Loud Places video
Mar 27, 2015 6:29am | Fact Magazine

Jamie xx takes his old bandmate skating round London in the video for ‘Loud Places’.

Romy Madley Croft contributes her signature soft vocals to the track, which appears on The xx producer’s forthcoming solo LP In Colour.

“We grew up skateboarding together,” says Jamie. “When I was thinking of what the video for Loud Places should be, I kept coming back to the idea of Romy and I skating in London, visiting the places we used to go to. Its a part of our friendship not many people really know about and its something I wanted to share.”

The album is out on June 1 on Young Turks and also features rapper Young Thug and dancehall export Popcaan.

Benoit Pioulard - Sonnet
Mar 27, 2015 6:26am | Drowned In Sound

For his fifth studio album, Thomas Meluch, aka Benoit Pioulard, returns to Chicago's Kranky label with a lush and vibrant collection of isolated drones, hazy ambience and crackling hiss.

Recorded over the summer and autumn of 2013, the album retains a beautifully pastoral feeling, and one that throbs and aches with genuine emotion. Meluch stated that he removed vocals from some finished tracks as he was striving to 'leave only what felt absolutely essential' in the finished article, and so became an album based around the exploration of restraint. It works in his favour, as the instrumental work here is busy but never cluttered - there's a lot to explore, and a lot of widescreen luminosity to get lost in and discover.

Recorded and mixed without the aid of any software, it's a purely analog affair, which will no doubt delight fans of the crackly imperfections that made records from the likes of early Hood, Ian William Craig and Zelienople such interesting experiences. Sonnet's ebb and flow glides in a beautifully forlorn way - a direct opposition of the fizzing splendour, or epic doom of the likes of Tim Hecker and Ben Frost - it excels in twisting and turning tiny fragments of tape and turning them into meandering melancholic atmospheres.

For the most part, Sonnet benefits from these improvisational slow motion melodies, although on a few occasions, he strays a little too far beyond the sonic world he's so gracefully crafted. A touch o...


Ron Sexsmith - Carousel One
Mar 27, 2015 6:25am | Drowned In Sound

When looking at Ron Sexsmith's career as a whole, one gets the feeling he was born out of time. He was signed in 1995, and has released 13 studio albums since then. Each has been met with considerable critical acclaim but sold rather more modestly. In all likelihood, if dropped into the late Sixties/early Seventies singer-songwriter golden age, Sexsmith's unique gift for melody and classic song structure would have surely seen him become a household name.

A list of his admirers reads like a who's who of rock royalty. He can count Elvis Costello, Steve Earle and Elton John as fans, a songwriters songwriter if you will. On Carousel One, it's easy to see why he has accrued such an enviable list of admirers. The beautiful, expressive melodies that have become his calling card over the years run through the album as strongly as ever, whilst his thoughtful and occasionally playful lyrical approach serves the songs well.

It is with the classic lineage of great songwriters in mind that producer Jim Scott has assembled an all-star band to work on the album. Bob Glaub on the bass guitar (John Lennon, Jackson Browne), Don Heffington on the drums (Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris) and guitarist Jon Graboff (John Lee Hooker, Dr John); all have an impressive history of studio work and are able to provide sympathetic and expertly executed flourishes to Ron's songs. The production itself falls somewhere in between 2011's Late Bloomer (its polished...

Only Real - Jerk at the End of the Line
Mar 27, 2015 5:57am | Drowned In Sound

I press play. The impact is instant. Cod rap verses smashing together with slacker guitar twangs without a care in the world for structure. Every once in a while we're interrupted by a robot bleeping about something or other. It's pretty wild, avant-garde stuff.

Then, it clicks. Something isn't right. The album stream has corrupted. So after a few bashes of the keyboard and a quick reboot the real Only Real record emerges and, well, let's just say it's not the satirical, chopped up, cynical vision of Britain it appeared to be.

In reality, Jerk At The End Of The Line is a much more formulaic, traditional record, and is all the worse off for it. Instead of disturbed time signatures and knowing nods to some of music's cringiest moments we're left with an album of woozy indie hip-hop sketches that sound new and familiar at the same time.



However, in some ways, the record is innovative. It manages to dream up a brand spanking new genre: SU pop. You can almost hear the cheap shots being spilt onto Hollister jogging bottoms throughout the duration of 'Can't Get Happy'. Saying that, the chorus is pretty huge. It takes you through a wormhole to an alternative reality where The Maccabees have embraced Mike Skinner's down-and-out rhymes rather than Guy Garvey's knack for an epic tune. However, the thing about choruses is that they're followed by a verse. And Only Real isn't the best at the whole 'verse' business. A painful suburb...
