Mar 30, 2015 11:40am | Fact Magazine

The pianist and composer’s new album features several collaborators and will be out this May.

Pianist Rachel Grimes is best known as one of the founding members of the innovative chamber music group Rachel’s and has continued developing her arrangement skills with her solo work. Later this spring Grimes will release The Clearing a new album that features neoclassical compositions built around improvisation.

We’ve previously heard the jazz-inflected ‘The Herald‘ and now you can hear the brief, beautiful string based piece ‘The Air In Time’ which features Scott Moore on viola and Loscil (whose recent EP we featured among January’s best bandcamp releases) on sound design.

Listen to the new song below and grab The Clearing May 26 via Temporary Residence

Mar 30, 2015 11:34am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Turnover

Turnover's current tour hit the NYC-area twice this past weekend (opening for New Found Glory), and luckily for those who would like to see them somewhere more up close and personal, they now announced another run which hits NYC's Studio at Webster Hall on May 29, this time on a tour opening for Fireworks. Sorority Noise are on that leg too, and tickets for the NYC show will be on sale.

Fireworks also have a west coast run with Weatherbox, who played NYC earlier this month. All of their dates are listed below.

Turnover recently put out first single "Cutting My Fingers Off" from their upcoming sophomore album, Peripheral Vision (due 5/5 via Run For Cover), and today they put the video for second single, "New Scream." Both are the kind of atmospheric punk that fans of Title Fight, Pity Sex, Nothing, Superheaven and other stuff like that need to check out. Listen, with the list of dates, below.

Jay Zs epic new commercial for TIDAL features a summit of music heavyweights watch
Mar 30, 2015 11:31am | Cosequence Of Sound

Today marks the launch of Jay Z’s new streaming music platform TIDAL. A number of fellow music luminaries have thrown their support behind the high-fidelity audio service: not only are they tweeting about it, but the likes of Daft Punk, Jack White, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Arcade Fire, and others all show up in a new commercial. It’s essentially the be-all, end-all of musical summits, but the video cuts shorts before we know what they’re all looking at.

From a marketing standpoint alone, I imagine rival streaming services have to be at least a little worried.

Full details of TIDAL will be revealed by Jay Z during a live stream scheduled for this afternoon.



De La Soul to sample themselves on Kickstarter-funded album featuring David Byrne, Damon Albarn and more
Mar 30, 2015 11:29am | Fact Magazine

The Native Tongues legends prep their first new album in more than a decade.

Hip-hop originals De La Soul re-emerged last year, dropping a Dilla-sampling mixtape and releasing their entire back catalog for free.

Their creativity reignited, the trio have begun work on their first new album since 2004’s The Grind Date. As is becoming de rigueur for this type of release, De La have taken to Kickstarter to fund the project.

Intriguingly, the group plans to sample themselves, whittling down three years of “free-styled, unrehearsed, jam sessions” with L.A. studio musicians into the sample bed for the album. They write:

“We are now in the process of going back to that 200+ hours of music, listening, enjoying and discovering those special moments where, musically, something magical happens, where interesting sounds and layers were forgotten, where new sounds can be sampled, looped, chopped, filtered and arranged, freely, without the intrusive presence of publishing politics and the infamous sample police.

“What we’ve done is created our own crates of records; album upon albums to mine and sample from. In our world, what weve created is freedom, freedom to make the art you believe in without having to compromise your vision. Thats what weve always wanted most, thats what weve always believed in, thats what ...

Burger Records held their fourth annual Burgerama festival at the Observatory in Santa Ana this past weekend. The two-day fest featured appearances from bands like Together PANGEA, Fidlar, La Luz, Gang Of Four, Public Access T.V. and many, many more. Ty Segall and Weezer were the headliners, and Rivers Cuomo's dad Frank Cuomo made a special guest appearance on "Back To The Shack." Cuomo addressed his recent reunion with his estranged father in a lengthy Rolling Stone interview prior to the release of Everything Will Be Alright in the End last fall. You can get a closer look of father and son jamming out together and watch video of Weezer's full set below; Cuomo's dad shows up at the 30-minute mark. Above, scroll through the rest of our pictures from the festival.

Ambient legend William Basinski preps new albums Cascade and The Deluge, shares haunting excerpt
Mar 30, 2015 11:17am | Fact Magazine

The tape loop-based recordings make up the composer’s first new work in two years.

Next month experimental composer William Basinski will release Cascade and The Deluge, a pair of albums inspired by his latest tape loop composition. Cascade examines the same gentle, piano loop over a single 40-minute track. The release also comes with a free download for the otherwise vinyl-only The Deluge, which finds the same composition run through several feedback filters live at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn before blooming into an full orchestral finale.

Cascade and The Deluge are out April 28 via his label 2062 Records and Temporary Residence. Below you can listen to an excerpt of the ghostly new work and watch a trailer for Cascade. Revisit our interview with William Basinski here.

He just compared his dick to a flaccid Haribo: Hud Mo, T-Pain and more reviewed in the FACT Singles Club
Mar 30, 2015 11:15am | 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.

With the way individual tracks are now consumed, the idea of what constitutes a single has shifted dramatically in the last half a decade, and its for this reason that the songs reviewed across the next pages are a combination of 12 vinyl releases, mixtape cuts, Soundcloud uploads and more. Up this week: the first cut from Hud Mo’s Lantern, Leafcutter John, Lil Durk & Jeremih and yes, T-Pain’s penis.

Mar 30, 2015 11:13am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Low fi powerpop practitioners Warm Soda, who last year relocated from San Francisco to Austin, will release their third album, Symbolic Dream, on May 4 via Castle Face. That's the cover art above. Main man Matthew Melton's ability to cram in a crazy amount of hooks, choruses and solos into a two-minute song, as first single "I Wanna Go Fast" attests. You can stream that below.

The only North American date Warm Soda have is in Austin this Saturday (4/4) at Hotel Vegas, but the band will be heading to Europe for most of May and June, and all tour dates are listed below.

The recently reformed '90s spacey alt-rockers Failure came back early last year for a round of live sets, later announcing that they had already begun work on a new album months prior to revealing the reunion. The Heart Is A Monster is the band's first full-length since 1996's Fantastic Planet and has now been set to come out June 30. No word on whether or not last summer's track "The Focus" is among the new album's 18-song tracklist.

According to the press release, the band's recent SXSW appearance was their first since completing the recording of the new LP and they debuted "Hot Traveler," the first track from The Heart Is A Monster, there. Check out all of the band's currently announced dates and a video of the new track, below...

Native Instruments new open multi-track format lets DJs remix on the fly
Mar 30, 2015 11:04am | Fact Magazine

The Stems technology should offer a fresh revenue stream for labels. 

DJ technology behemoth Native Instruments has announced Stems, a new multi-track audio format that allows DJs and live performers to incorporate individual parts of a track in their sets.

Revealed at a presentation at Miami’s WMC last Friday (March 27), the new format allows anyone to create and distribute their own music files capable of splitting a track into four different parts. Primarily aimed at both DJs and live performers wanting to remix on the fly, the Stem file allows you to play and modify individual parts of a track, such as bass, drums, melody, or vocals.

The technology works by using the MP4 container format to store the four components in a single file, meaning that it can be played like a normal MP3 file using standard audio players, or split into individual parts using Stem-supported software and hardware.

The idea isn’t entirely new – a few years ago Native Instruments introduced Remix Decks as part of its Traktor software, a feature that let Traktor users do much the same thing. However, the function required special Remix Sets to use, which have so far only been sold by labels working in partnership with Native Instruments. As the Stems technology is open it should help the idea to catch on a little more successfully – producers, ...


Dolores Haze The Haze (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 30, 2015 10:57am | StereoGum
Dolores Haze have an aura about them, an unfuckwithable attitude that makes them a force to be reckoned with. After building up a following on the Stockholm underground, they're set to make their international debut next month with the Accidental EP, a brightly burning collection of top-heavy punk tracks that come with a sinister bite. It opens with "The Haze," their wildly anthemic quasi-theme song that channels late-era Sleater-Kinney. "The haze is forever" comes across as both a threat and a promise, and Dolores Haze feels readily equipped to handle both. Listen below.
