Listen: Chippy Nonstop Me + You Feat. Kitty (Pryde)
Aug 19, 2014 1:55pm | CMJ


Here’s another song with the iPhone text bloop, because this is the sound of teen lyfe now. And Chippy Nonstop, a genre-less musician from Oakland who’s worked with the likes of Hot Sugar and Ryan Hemsworth, embodies the rattling sugary hormones of everyone born in the ’90s. Me + You, which Chippy teased in her recent Summer Mix, features a bouncing cheerleader beat, some gooey twee rap from Kitty (formerly Kitty Pryde) and squishy lyrics like “We can grab a burger and a milkshake at the drive-thru/Catch a late night movie, you can call me your boo.” Listen below.

These are the actors playing Daft Punk in the EDM-inspired film Eden
Aug 19, 2014 1:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Eden is the name of a forthcoming film chronicling the rise of France’s electronic music scene through the eyes of DJ Sven Love, co-founder of the duo Cheers. Described as “largely autobiographical,” the film’s plot centers around a young man named Paul (played by Félix de Givry), who discovers raves and house music, and eventually forms his own DJ project.

The film incorporates many of the clubs and parties synonymous with the scene, as well as prominent DJs like Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, aka Daft Punk. Above is a look at the actors cast to play the legendary duo (Arnaud Azoulay and Vincent Lacoste, respectively).

According to Love, the real Daft Punk members signed off on the film and allowed the use of three of their songs in the soundtrack. “Without their consent, the project could not succeed,” Love told Tsugi.fr.

Eden is set to premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film also stars Greta Gerwig, Brady Corbet, and Laura Smet.

Hear the new album from Vancouvers 1080p label, Mark Wundercastles Cell
Aug 19, 2014 1:46pm | Fact Magazine

There’s a good reason why we’ve been so obsessed by Vancouver’s 1080p imprint in recent months.

Somehow, they’ve managed to carve out a niche for themselves in the overcrowded electronic music world, not by putting out a slew of 12″s from dead-cert artists we all know and love, but by discovering a new family of like-minded producers operating under their own set of rules.

The latest 1080p signing to come to our attention is Kiwi techno producer Mark Wundercastle who welds together airs swirls of Detroit techno with traces of New Zealand’s club scene (whatever that might be). It’s absorbing, unusual stuff, and just the kind of vanguard oddness we’ve come to love and expect from the 1080p lot. You can hear the entire thing below, and buy it on cassette and digitally from the 1080p site.

If you fancy reading more about 1080p, FACT’s very own Chal Ravens picked five of her favorite releases from the label, and asked boss man Richard MacFarlane to talk us through each one – check it out here.

Toro Y Mois Chaz Bundick announces new album as Les Sins, shares Bother
Aug 19, 2014 1:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

When hes not performing under the Toro Y Moi moniker, Chaz Bundick indulges his more straightforward, dance music-inspired tendencies as Les Sins. Over the last few years, Les Sins has released a handful of singles and a 12-inch LP called Lina.

On November 4th, Bundick will issue the projects first full-length LP with Michael. The 11-track effort is the first release under Bundicks brand new label, Company Records, an imprint of his longtime label Carpark Records.

As our first taste, Bundick has shared “Bother”. Those more accustomed to the gentle chillwave of Toro Y Moi may be shocked by the bouncy, infectious amalgamation of 90s dance grooves and sturdy alt rap bass. Theres little going on lyrically (save for slightly robotic repetition of the title), but thats the point: Les Sins isnt about emotions, but getting people on the dance floor and into a tizzy of pure passion.

Listen in below.

Michael Tracklist:
01. Talk About
02. Past
03. Toy
04. Why (feat. Nate Salman)
05. Bother
06. Minato
07. Bellow
08 Sticky
09. Call
10. Drop
11. Do Right



Quit Your Day Job: Lemonade
Aug 19, 2014 1:43pm | StereoGum

Quit Your Day Job is a series that ran on Stereogum from 2007 to 2013, and in that space, we talked to dozens of indie artists — from Girl Talk to the National to Deerhunter to the Hold Steady — about the work they did when not making music, the things they did to make, y’know, money. Today, we’re bringing back QYDJ … in video form!

Joanna Gruesome Announces Split 7-Inch With Perfect Pussy, Shares Psykick Espionage
Aug 19, 2014 1:40pm | CMJ

Cover/Comic by Phil McAndrew



Today, Cardiff noise-poppers Joanna Gruesome and Syracuse, NY, punks Perfect Pussy announced their plans to release a split 7-inch, to be sold in limited quantities on the band’s upcoming U.S. tour. The 7-inch features four songs total, with each band contributing one original new tune and one cover. Joanna Gruesome takes on a tune by ’90s emo titans I Hate Myself, whereas Perfect Pussy tackles the Sugarcubes’ Leash Called Love. The record also comes with a 24-page comic by Phil McAndrew, brother of Perfect Pussy’s guitarist Ray McAndrew. In the comic, whose cover appears above, a superhero (who is half-Alanna McArdle of Joanna Gruesome and half-Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy) battles misogynistic online trolls and other assorted enemies.

The 7-inch will see a joint release from Slumberland, Captured Tracks and Fortuna Pop, and fans can expect a digital release this fall. Joanna Gruesome has also shared one of their contributions to the split single, the fiercely hooky Psykick Espionage. Check out that track and Perfect Pussy’s cover below, along with the full tracklist for the split single and Joanna Gruesome’s upcoming tour dates, among them a handful of shows with Perfect Pussy.

Watch James Franco And Seth Rogen Annoy Iggy Azalea And Nicki Minaj In Dave Skylarks Very Special VMA Special
Aug 19, 2014 1:27pm | StereoGum

The VMAs are coming up this weekend, and the Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy The Interview is coming out this December, and to cross-promote both events, MTV staged a special episode of the fictional Interview program, featuring Franco as the show’s host, Dave Skylark, Rogen as his useless, hapless producer, and VMA nominees Jason Derulo, Iggy Azalea, and Nicki Minaj as Skylark’s terrorized guests. (It also features a smaller but still notable performance from Ben Schwartz — aka Parks And Rec’s immortal Jean Ralphio — as a crew member.) It’s basically a 20-minute commercial for two things that probably don’t need any additional exposure, but goddamn it’s pretty funny. My favorite part is when the Interview crew assaults Azalea with a barrage of Australian paraphernalia: a stuffed kangaroo, a boomerang, a didgeridoo … If you have 20 minutes to kill, you should watch it, because it’s really good. Check it out.

Stones Throw invite you to rap over their debut 7 with new iPhone app
Aug 19, 2014 1:22pm | Fact Magazine

Dropping back in 1996, the aptly-titled ‘My World Premiere’ from Charizma and Peanut Butter Wolf was the first release to appear from the Stones Throw imprint.

Now, almost two decades on, Stones Throw (in collaboration with AIAIAI) are asking fans to rap over the classic track and upload their freestyles to the World Premiere Mic Contest website. The companies have designed a special iPhone app which allows you to use your headphones to record your voice over Peanut Butter Wolf’s original production.

It just so happens that innovative Scandinavian company AIAIAI have been working with Stones Throw on a new pair of headphones, which is obviously where things tie together, but we at least agree that rapping into one headphone cup is historically accurate.

Stones Throw boss man Peanut Butter Wolf will pick a winner on September 8, and their brand new version will get the honor of being pressed to its very own 7″. What more can you ask for? You can download the app from the My World Premiere micro-site.


Small Stone Records headquarters flooded, needs help
Aug 19, 2014 1:18pm | Brooklyn Vegan

By Ian Chainey

Small Stone Records, the home and distributor to quality stoner metal and stoner rock from artists such as Acid King, Dozer, and Sons of Otis, was recently flooded due to the storms Detroit endured early in August. Now owner Scott Hamilton needs help to get everything back in order. A YouCaring.com page has been set up to take donations with the following message:

Gear and product were both destroyed and insurance in Michigan is crap, so we're coming together to help Scott from Small Stone with some of the massive expense of cleaning up from this flood.

Scott's support for heavy music over the last 19 years that he's run Small Stone has never wavered and this is a chance to help somebody who's helped us by enriching our lives with great bands and great riffs.

Oof. You can see more pictures of the flood below.

In related news, Small Stone artist Lo-Pan are still kicking off their tour at the end of the month with Black Cobra, a run that includes an Invisible Oranges presented show on September 18 at NYC's Saint Vitus.

Pictures of the flood along with highlights from Small Stone's ample roster appears below.
