Oneohtrix Point Never scores Sofia Coppola
May 16, 2013 2:11pm | Fact Magazine
It’s Suntory time for Daniel Lopatin.
Sofia Coppola has always had an ear for soundtracks, from the smart use of French dreamers Air in her debut The Virgin Suicides to the influential and quite eccentric soundtrack to 2003′s Lost in Translation. This time FACT favourite Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) has been enlisted by Coppola to handle the score of her latest movie The Bling Ring, aided by her regular collaborator Brian Reitzell.
While the duo only have a single track on the freshly announced official soundtrack album, there are still plenty of reasons to check it out. Picked by Reitzell, there’s an unsurprisingly eclectic mix of genres with kosmiche legend Klaus Schulze and Krautrockers Can next to Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Phoenix, Frank Ocean and more. How all this fits into a storyline about a group of young bandits stealing from the California rich and famous we have no idea, but we’re looking forward to finding out. [via Pitchfork]
The Bling Ring OST will be released on June 11 via Def Jam. For those of you that want to hear Lopatin’s score, the movie itself will be in theaters on June 14.

Stream a long-lost track from Arthur Russell,
May 16, 2013 2:05pm | Fact Magazine
As outlined in our recently uploaded The Essential…Arthur Russell, the New York-based musician was a genuinely incomparable figure: art musician, disco producer, cellist-for-hire, storied DJ, and the mind behind the immortal romantic classic World Of Echo.
Russell’s list of collaborators is long - Allen Ginsberg, David Byrne and Larry Levan have all spent time in the studio with the man – but his list of admirers is longer. His death from AIDS in 1992 was a tragedy, made sharper by the fact that so much of Russell’s music drifted under the radar during his lifetime.
Promoters Circoloco are set to pay tribute to Russell with a major event at Detroit’s TV Bar on May 25. It’s testament to Russell’s standing that Carl Craig has agreed to top the bill, with Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss, Andrew Grant, System Of Survival and D’Julz also on the ticket. Art installations, performances and other Russell-inspired happenings have also been commissioned for the purpose.
In honour of the event, we’ve been furnished with a previously unreleased version of ‘Oh Fernando Why?’, provided by Russell’s regular collaborator Ernie Brooks (of The Modern Lovers). Click below to stream, or head here for tickets for the event. All proceeds from the night will go towards two Detroit based charities, Youthville Detroit and the Detroit Techno Foun...

UK Festivals Are Too Expensive for the Kids...
May 16, 2013 1:57pm | The Daily Swarm
A new study has found that 60 percent of Britons aged 18-24 can’t afford to go to the country’s famed summer music festivals. The average festival spend worked out to £423, or nearly $650, in 2012. Via Gigwise:
The study also found that the festival’s headliners have an average age of 39, while the average festival goer is roughly 36. Mumford and Sons, who are headlining T in the Park, are the only band to headline a 2013 festival who had released their debut album in the last five years.
The Crystal Method
May 16, 2013 1:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound
The Crystal Method, the Los Vegas-based, Grammy Award-winning electronic duo, have been forced to push back the release of their new studio album, and a number of upcoming tour dates have been canceled, as co-founder Scott Kirkland continues to recover from brain surgery.
As Kirkland explained in a lengthy statement issued to fans, he began to experience painful headaches a few months. Doctors discovered a “benign posterior fossa arachnoid cyst in his brain,” which could have caused complications “due to my tendency to get a little excited on stage.” He had surgery on April 11th, 2013 and within a week was back in the studio. However, “Just when I thought I was on the mend, I contracted an infection and, due to complications, I ended up back in the hospital where I spent most of my next 10 days in ICU dealing with a painful lumbar spinal drain, aka a

Because they are kind and generous people who want nothing but nice things for us, Liars are giving away two brand-new tracks, “I Saw You From The Lifeboat” and “Perfume Tear.” Both songs are harsh, buzzing synthetic things, keeping many of the textures from the band’s 2012 album WIXIW but bringing a more merciless, sinister edge than most of that album had. Right now, you can download both songs by heading to this site and entering an email address. Meanwhile, watch a video for “I Saw You From The Lifeboat,” which pairs the track with random tour photos, below.

Watch the cinematic video for Gunplay
May 16, 2013 1:32pm | Fact Magazine
The MMG madman flashes cash in the video for a mixtape-standout.
Last year’s 601 and Snort mixtape cut ‘Bible On The Dash’ has finally received the video treatment. After a Spanish-only intro, Gunplay rolls around his Carol City hometown in a throwback-Buick and lays down his rueful but realistic verses: “I asked the pastor, what’s the fastest way to heaven for a bastard / With a tarnished past, give me your honest answer/ With all this Hannah Montana, without the Arm and Hammer / Am I going to get the slammer or the casket?”
Watch the video below. Gunplay is one of FACT’s rappers to watch in 2013; his Living Legend LP (originally titled Medellin) is due out this year.

Patrick Stickles of Titus Andronicus chants, “Bring back the dudes!” in the beginning of the video, the super fucking official name of the band’s spring tour with dude friends The So So Glos.

Previously, Titus Andronicus covered “Born To Run” with Diarrhea Planet, and now So So Glos and Titus team up for the Beastie Boys anthem “No Sleep Till Brooklyn”, honoring the So So Glos’ home turf.
