Watch Drake Do A New Freestyle In Detroit
May 28, 2015 8:06am | StereoGum
Last night, Drake brought his Jungle tour with Future to the Palace Of Auburn Hills, the arena just outside Detroit. He took the opportunity to unveil a new "freestyle" -- an a cappella verse that was absolutely not done off the dome. Instead, like so many Drake verses, it was a carefully worded rebuke to … More »

Tyler, The Creator Hints That Odd Future Are
May 28, 2015 7:43am | StereoGum
When Odd Future came onto the scene six years ago, the L.A. rap crew came off as a tight unit. Since then, the different members have grown into solo artists, and their paths seem to cross only incidentally. No Odd Future members guested on Tyler, The Creator's new album Cherry Bomb or on Earl … More »



Boomkat do reviews better than your favourite magazine
May 28, 2015 7:16am | Fact Magazine

While half the websites on your Twitter feed were losing their shit over a Jamie xx album that they probably hadn’t even listened to, Boomkat had other ideas.

They fucking slated it.

It takes a special kind of balls to hammer an album and try to sell it in the same article. Slow to Speak’s New York store Dope Jams is infamous for this approach, but you could easily make a case for Boomkat – a Manchester-based record emporium with a maze of excellent in-house labels and a well-curated distribution network – as the kings of the negative record store review. Sometimes Boomkat’s reviews are neutral on the surface but peppered with sly digs (any use of “curls out” is always a giveaway), often they damn with faint phrase, and on occasion they just outright slaughter a record – and still expect you to buy it. Treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen, we guess.

Boomkat’s review squad shouldn’t just be phrased for their vindictive moments, however – even if they’re more honest than half the websites you read day-to-day. When Boomkat love a record, they really love it: it’s not uncommon to see 400 words thrown at a record, filled with imaginative metaphors, ridiculous tangents, and zero regard for paragraph breaks. It’s not just the big hitters of Boomkat ...

Black Sabbath to reissue eight classic albums on vinyl
May 28, 2015 6:52am | Fact Magazine

The early Black Sabbath albums are to be reissued on vinyl this summer, spanning an eight-year period from 1970 to 1978.

The reissues start with Sabbath’s self-titled debut and go through to Never Say Die, the last album to feature Ozzy Osbourne on vocals until 2013’s 13. The campaign includes Paranoid and 1971’s Master of Reality, the album in which Tommy Ionni detuned his guitar even further and took metal into much heavier places.

Each reissue arrives on heavyweight 180g vinyl and features a CD copy of the album. Black Sabbath, Paranoid and Master of Reality arrive on June 22, Vol. 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage arrive on June 29 and Technical Ecstacy and Never Say Die are released on July 13.

If you need to brush up on your Sabbath, the band features in FACT’s 100 best albums of the 1970s.

Stream Matthew Herbert
May 28, 2015 6:32am | Fact Magazine

Matthew Herbert releases a new full-length titled The Shakes next week, and it’s his first under his concise HERBERT guise since 2006.

After spending most of the past decade squeezin music out of pig’s innards and falling bombs, the new album is described as his attempt to “seduce the listener back to the dancefloor”. This time he’s sampled protest marches on ‘Strong’, a piano from Wormwood Scrubs prison on ‘Smart’ and the sound of bullets bought from eBay on ‘Safety’.

Stream the whole thing over at the Guardian ahead of its release on June 1 and read our 2013 interview with the agenda-setting producer.

Shazam now has visual recognition capabilities
May 28, 2015 5:58am | Fact Magazine

“Visual Shazam” is basically a fancy QR reader.

Music recognition app Shazam has just added visual recognition capabilities, meaning you can now access exclusive video content through select objects with a Shazam-readable logo.

It’s not quite as exciting as what was touted when the feature was first revealed back in March, suggesting you’d be able to get information on almost any physical object you could scan. However, if you see the Shazam logo in the physical world (primarily on ads), you’ll be able to access behind-the-scenes videos and coupons – much like you would with a standard QR code reader.

The feature launches today, but if you’re hoping for some decent music content you might be disappointed – as well as Meghan Trainor and Nick Jonas, the current partners include Levi
