premiere: Korallreven November Rain
Nov 27, 2014 10:11am | Gorilla Vs Bear
Swedish duo Korallreven premiere a twinkling hyper-pop cover of the singular piano power-ballad of my 9th grade year (Daniel Tjäder‘s, too, apparently) and possibly of all time, Guns N’ Roses’ sprawling ’90′s classic “November Rain“. Heartfelt and beautifully restrained, which means no epic, self-indulgent guitar solos, for better or worse. Korallreven’s Second Comin’ is out now on Cascine.
Iggy Azalea gives Thanksgiving performance on Fallon watch
Nov 27, 2014 9:40am | Cosequence Of Sound
Iggy Azalea may not be from this country, but she’s still got plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. On the same day she released the deluxe reissue of her debut album, The New Classic, she beat out Drake and Eminem for the rap/hip hop Favorite Artist and Album awards at the American Music Awards. Last night, she celebrated all the good news by teaming with The Roots for a performance of “Bet For It” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Watch the replay below.
After performing on Saturday Night Live and Ellen in addition to Fallon over the last few weeks, Iggy is finally ready to take a break. Her next scheduled performance will be on New Year’s Eve at Las Vegas’ Drai’s Beach Club. No doubt she’ll use the downtime to prep the lawsuit against her contract forging, unauthorized music releasing ex-boyfriend.
Bizarre scene as AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd appears in court on drug charges watch
Nov 27, 2014 9:20am | Cosequence Of Sound
AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd recently avoided a murder charge of attempting to hire a hitman, but he’s not yet in the clear. The New Zealand native is still being charged with threatening murder, as well as possession of methamphetamine and marijuana. Video of the bail hearing for the latter charges has appeared online (via NBC News).
The clip opens with a very twitchy-eyed Rudd standing in court before cutting to him leaving the building after the bail was posted. A reporter asks if he has any comment for his fans, to which he replies, “No, I haven’t got any fans.” Asked what he thought of the charges against him, he says, “Well, they’re [bullshit, ain’t they?]” He then proceeds to piggyback ride a security office to his car, which he promptly backs up into the road and stops in front of an oncoming semi. It’s a bizarre scene to be sure, and you can watch it below.
The other members of AC/DC said in a statement to Rolling Stone that they were made aware of Rudd’s arrest at the same time as the rest of the world. They went on, “We have no further comment. Phils absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year.

Campaigners launch petition to protect venues from noise complaints
Nov 27, 2014 8:30am | Fact Magazine
Petition wants to turn down the volume on whining residents.
Luke Abbott, Om Unit, B-Traits and Hospital Records are among the artists and labels backing a campaign to protect venues from noise complaints.
Over 20,000 people have signed the petition calling for the introduction of mandatory noise complaint waivers for people who live near music venues. The campaigners say too many venues have had their licences revoked or been shut down completely when residents take exception to the volume, a situation that has affected London clubs like Plastic People and Ministry of Sound in recent years.
They propose that anyone who wants to buy or rent a property within a determined distance of a venue should be forced to sign a document waiving their right to complain about noise. “If they do not wish to be bothered by something that was a fixture of the community long before they arrived, they should not move there in the first place,” the petition points out.
“It is extremely detrimental to the UK’s entertainment industry, particularly on a grassroots level, when all the music venues start disappearing. Music is a key British export and to endanger our strong national artist community is to endanger a key British industry.”
You can check out the petition and add your name over here.

My Chemical Supergrass: Gerard Way and Gaz Coombes in conversation
Nov 27, 2014 7:54am | Drowned In Sound
Over the years, DiS has been pleasantly surprised by the tastes of some of our favourite acts, but when we heard that emo-legend Gerard Way was a massive anglophile, who was particularly into Brit Pop and that Supergrass were one of his favourite bands, an idea was born. A few emails later, and it was happening.
Here's what happened when the former My Chemical Romance frontman visited Oxford and met his boyhood hero Gaz Coombes, for a chat about the challenges and joys of going solo.
Part two of this conversation will be live on Sunday 30th November 2014. To be alerted when it's live subscribe to our YouTube channel or follow us on Twitter @drownedinsound or Facebook.

Stream Dramatic Records mind-boggling compilation of devotional music for spaces and places unknown
Nov 27, 2014 7:34am | Fact Magazine
And now for something completely different.
The latest release from the proudly eccentric Dramatic Records is as confounding a project as they’ve ever put forward, and that’s saying something when their catalogue includes music from a fictional 1970s superclub (The Endless House) and a Carl Sagan-obsessed swimming teacher-slash-preacher (Sebastian Palomar).
Devotional Music for Invisible Cities is an anonymous collection of music “for spaces and places unknown” put together by Dramatic over the last two years. The artists were instructed to create music inspired by 13 ‘invisible cities’ (inspired by Italo Calvino’s 1972 novel) and an accompanying belief statement that would become a track title: ‘Their God Is Ugly’, ‘The Devoted Destroy All Machinery’, ‘Their City Tessellates Infinitely’, that sort of thing.
“Their palette, all deranged chorales and Globalisch instrumentation, calls to mind everything from Michael Nyman to Demdike Stare, Ghostbox to Angelo Badalamenti,” says label boss Jack Fryer of the record’s resulting “delirious ethnography”. ”We try to do more than just release some tunes. Our mission remains an effort to weave electronics with some degree of storytelling and Phantasy.”

The Ghosts of Goldie: how Om Unit is dismantling drumn'bass
Nov 27, 2014 5:25am | Fact Magazine
When I wrote the How Drum’n'Bass Got its Groove Back feature for FACT last year, my motivation came from a combination of excitement for the music as a fan and personal engagement with it as a writer.
This engagement arose primarily from my friendship with Jim Coles, known by then as Om Unit, and the fact we shared a flat together in London around the time he began the Philip D. Kick project. There was also something in the air, and we all felt it and lived it in different ways. Writing the feature was my way of contributing to what was being shared in the music.
The ideas discussed in the piece still feel valid a year on. Instead of the bubble bursting around this new movement, as part of me feared, artists like Om Unit and dBridge have continued to do their thing in a very natural way, inspiring and fostering others around them. Coles work has captured the attention of other drum’n'bass godfathers too, like Ray Keith and Goldie. The latter invited Coles to contribute to Metalheadzs Platinum Breaks series in 2013, inadvertently sparking a relationship that has since led to two more releases. First was a short three-track 12 of brooding and icy drum’n'bass in late 2013, followed by a longer EP this November – eight tracks across two 12s – that acts as a statement from Coles on both his junglist roots and his current state within the scene.
