The Julie Ruin share punchy new song Im Done listen
May 23, 2016 10:55am | Cosequence Of Sound
On July 8th, Kathleen Hannas The Julie Ruin will put out a new album called Hit Reset through Hardly Art. The group’s second album to date follows 2013’s Run Fast and is previewed today with “I’m Done”.
Unlike last month’s morose single “I Decide”, this latest offering finds The Julie Ruin embracing some of their poppiest hooks yet, as well as a batch of squishy, wacky synths. Even so, the band still knows how to get the point across succinctly and with a punch: “I’m dooooone!” Hanna wails during the chorus, her powerful delivery reminiscent of fellow punk pioneers Sleater-Kinney.
Stream it below.
Along with “I’m Done”, The Julie Ruin has announced a leg of tour dates across North America and Europe.

Shabazz Palaces to release live album via Third Man this spring
May 23, 2016 10:53am | Fact Magazine
Following up the spacey video for ‘Dawn in Luxor’, Shabazz Palaces announce live album.
Shabazz Palaces live performance last year at Third Man HQ in the Nashville Blue Room was recorded direct-to-acetate and will now be released as a full-length LP at the end of the spring.
Of the performance, Third Man affiliate Ben Swank says: “Shabazz Palaces’ obstinately original oeuvre emanates from a fully formed higher conscious, they plant their flag in the outermost realms of the hip hop global soundscape where vibrations throb into beat-heavy explorations, chrome covered constellations of higher reveries each offering its own sonic boom.”
Last week it was announced that the Seattle duo will open for Radiohead at their LA concerts in August, so this is a great preview of what’s to come.
Shabazz Palaces: Live at Third Man Records is out June 3. Pre-order now and listen to ‘Youlogy’ below.

Singles Club: Clams Casino, Neptunes fan fiction and RZAs decline
May 23, 2016 10:29am | Fact Magazine
Each week on the FACT Singles Club, a selection of our writers work their way through the new music of the week gone by.
This week, we rate and slate the latest from cloud rap innovator Clams Casino, Chicago’s Joey Purp and Chance The Rapper, Sampha, Lee Gamble, a collaboration between Interpols Paul Banks and RZA, and Exploded View.
Lee Gamble – ‘For Infernomatics’
Hayley Potiker: I guess this is preferable to listening to a dial tone or the fax machine busy signal but like, not by a lot. (3)
Daniel Montesinos-Donaghy: A lot of the time for Singles Club I write about nostalgia and futurism, because I guess those are my concerns when I listen to and think about music. ‘For Infernomatics’ is no different for reminding me of the early days of leaks on peer-to-peer sharing networks, where a brand new song would pop up and be rabidly downloaded thousands of times, only for everyone to realise it was a fade-in/fade-out loop of the real song’s first 20 seconds. If that was the concern of Gamble’s clattering, that would still only give me a wry smile and nothing more; as it stands, this is just bad music. (2)
Son Raw: Why cant all techno sound like this? Subsuming jungles speed rush to a muted thump should be awful but Lee Gamble knows that the two genres workable intersection is their al...
PJ Harvey performs The Community of Hope on BBC One watch
May 23, 2016 10:20am | Cosequence Of Sound
PJ Harvey swung by the set of BBC One’s The Andrew Marr Show this past weekend in support of her first new album in over five years, The Hope Six Demolition Project. The alt rock titan — and one of the most anticipated live acts of the summer — rolled out a no-nonsense performance of single “The Community of Hope”. Additionally, she sat down for a short but rare interview about the record.
On the album’s combining of songwriting and journalism, she said: “I still call myself a songwriter, really. I mean, I gather information for songs and my biggest drive in my life is to want to sing to people — that’s the way I get across the things that interest me and the things that concern me.”
