Nov 23, 2014 8:47pm | Cosequence Of Sound

During Lordes last major awards show appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards last August, she made history by becoming the first woman to win the award for Best Rock Video. Since then, the New Zealand pop singer has only made further in-roads into our shared cultural lexicon. Shes been spoofed by South Park, curated the star-studded Hunger Games soundtrack, and participated in an equally illustrious Beach Boys charity cover. Oh, and did we mention she turned 18, like, two weeks ago?

Despite her continually rising profile, Sunday night marked the young singers American Music Awards debut. She performed her new, Hunger Game single, “Yellow Flicker Beat”, marking the first time she’s done so on American TV. Watch the replay below.




Sam Smith and ASAP Rocky team up at AMAs watch
Nov 23, 2014 8:34pm | Cosequence Of Sound

The American Music Awards arent simply the bastard younger brother of the Grammys. Unlike the stratified Grammy hierarchy, the AMAs are voted on in part by the public at large, which means theres usually a more populous lean to the pool of nominees and performers.

And whats more popular than two of Americas most beloved acts coming together for the publics collective entertainment? Case in point: Sam Smith and ASAP Rocky, who hit the stage to deliver the live debut of their “Im Not The Only One” remix. Watch the replay below.




John Cale has created the worlds first drone orchestra watch the documentary
Nov 23, 2014 7:51pm | Fact Magazine

Cale’s flying symphony is the first of its kind.

Former Velvet Underground lynchpin John Cale teamed with Australian speculative architect Liam Young to create a performance entitled LOOP>>60Hz: Transmissions from the Drone Orchestra. After two years searching for the right venue, the performance took place at The Barbican in London and featured flying drones as musical instruments.

The fleet of drones, each adorned with elaborate costumes, flew around the venue and and spread Cale’s voice, different audio tracks and their own motor sounds over the audience. According to Cale, the show represented ”a collaboration between airborne architecture and music.”

“It took a long time to find the right venue,” said Cale’s collaborator Liam Young. “Putting these technologies above people’s heads that are really violent; they spin at extraordinary speeds. These propellers are gonna take someone’s head off if you let them. It required someone with some vision and some bravery to let us attempt it. And it really is the first time that these things have been flown above the heads of an audience.”

The Creators Project prepared a short documentary that provides an insight into how the performance came together. You can stream the documentary below.

Killer Mike shares mixtape of forgotten freestyles, stream Sunday Morning Massacres
Nov 23, 2014 6:01pm | Fact Magazine

Killer Mike opens up the archives.

In 2008, Killer Mike put together a regular series of freestyles known as Sunday Morning Massacres. DJ Greg Street has compiled eighteen of the freestyles for the Sunday Morning Massacres mixtape, unveiled earlier today.

Killer Mike delivers his typically fiery bars over instrumentals originally popularised by the likes of The Game, Young Jeezy and Jay-Z, interspersed with a handful of skits.

Whilst the lyrical depth we have come to expect from the Run The Jewels rapper remains present, the mixtape highlights the progression Killer Mike has made in the six or so years since originally delivering his Sunday Morning Massacres.

James Blake hopes new album will feature Kanye West, could be out in about five months
Nov 23, 2014 4:39pm | Fact Magazine

Blake says he is “70 per cent done” with his third studio album. 

James Blake has been hard at work on his third LP, revealing to the Miami New Times that the album should be out in “about five months.” Blake also confirmed that he has been working alongside Kanye West, and he hopes to have West feature on the album.

“I have a lot of respect for [Kanye], for what he has been releasing for years,” said Blake. “We havent done a great deal of work in the same room yet, but weve done a few things, kind of helped each other with our own music. In terms of the actual collaboration for this record, it looks like we should be able to get something done. I know that theres a specific song I would like him to be on, and if he can do that by the time my record comes out, that would be fantastic.”

Discussing his approach to the album as a whole, Blake said, I’m working hard and doing my bestI’m aware that people want to hear this record, so I’m not being complacent. I should hope that [the new album] will be a step on, as much as the second one was to the first. I guess Ive taken a focus on the songwriting again, even more closely, and Im dabbling in some different production techniques, things Ive developed.

A lot of things have changed in my life since the last record, and overall for ...


New study reveals Americas movie viewing habits
Nov 23, 2014 1:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Despite the relative hassle of going to a movie theater these days — chattering audiences, crinkling candy wrappers, ridiculous ticket prices and even more ridiculous concession costs — most of us still enjoy going out and seeing a flick every now and then. In fact, Google recently teamed with Millward Brown Digital in a study (via The Playlist) that found 68% of Americans (i.e. those in the US) and Canadians saw a movie in theaters last year. That’s a staggering 228.7 million people, 11% of whom went twice a month.

But knowing how many people go to the movies begs the question: What does it take to get people into seats? For some, it’s as simple as a name or an association; I, for example, can tell you exactly what movie I’m going to be seeing on July 6th, 2018. But, apparently I’m an exception.

According to Google/MBD’s data, 70% of moviegoers don’t actually choose the movie they’ll see until they’re at the theater. What’s more, what they actually choose depends on a number of factors. Those who pick comedies are drawn in by the cast, action fans look at the director, and horror lovers seem to care more about convenient showtimes than who’s doing the hacking and slashing. Not that these folks go to their local AMC without knowing at least what’s out there, of course. 4 out of 5 moviegoers will use YouTube to learn about a film, with 39% most...

James Blake has been playing a lot of new material on his BBC Radio 1 program over the past few months — including tracks like “200 Press” and “Building It Still” — which demonstrates that he’s hard at work on a follow-up to 2013′s Overgrown. In a recent interview with The Miami New Times, he’s revealed that he’s “probably about seventy percent done” with the new record, which he said should come out in “about five months.” (So around March or April of next year.) “I’m working hard and doing my best — I’m aware that people want to hear this record, so I’m not being complacent,” he said. “I should hope that [the new album] will be a step on, as much as the second one was to the first.
