Thought Forms - Ghost Mountain
May 21, 2013 3:10am | Drowned In Sound
It's the politically incorrect stance to take, but I am pro-pigeonholing - in theory, anyway. An inbox with colour coded labels is one to be revered and emulated. Sadly, I've never found myself with the patience or tenacity to go much beyond multi-hued stars for emails that I will remember to have a look at one year down the line.
Similarly, the Dewey Decimal System, washing machine settings, actual pigeonholes, and rubbish bins, all serve to demonstrate the triumph of segregation. Catalogue your life. Label your experiences. Consider the science and the religion that tell us that the grandest complexities are just larger manifestations of the simplest event. Consider how psychology has reduced an endless continuum of human experience to six basic emotions.
Consider how much I rely on labels to make my job easier.
Bloody Thought Forms.
Ghost Mountain is an album so musically ambiguous, it is impossible stow it away under a conveniently selected all-encompassing genre. Which is actually a Good Thing because no one likes to be labelled (nor should they be), but, conversely, everyone loves speaking in labels. If it weren't for genres we'd be forced to validate Roland Barthes' snide observation that music criticism is simply the scattered 'poorest of linguistic categories: the adjective'.
Adjectives, adverbs, and descriptors in general are horrific (see what I did there?). As a rule, they tend to take more away from a statement,...
The Clash to collect remastered albums in boombox-shaped box set, Sound System
May 21, 2013 2:59am | Fact Magazine
Sound System" src="http://factmag-images.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Clash210513.jpg" alt="The Clash announce new boombox-shaped box set, Sound System" width="642" height="390" />
Punk warriors The Clash will go all LL Cool J on a new box-set, overseen by guitarist Mick Jones.
The Sound System box-set will feature the band’s first five LPs – that’s The Clash (1977), Give ‘Em Enough Rope (1978), London Calling (1979), Sandinista! (1980) and Combat Rock (1982) – remastered from the original tapes by Jones. The set will also include three CDs of rarities, demos and singles, a DVD featuring previously unreleased footage, and a fresh edition of the band’s iconic Armagideon Time zine. Art direction has been co-ordinated by Clash bassist Paul Simonon, who has elected to design the box in the shape and style of a vintage boombox.
According to Jones, the “concept of the whole thing is: best box set ever”:
Full version of Beyonce's 'Grown Woman' surfaces online
May 21, 2013 2:56am | NME
The track was teased in a Pepsi advert back in April
May 21, 2013 2:35am | Fact Magazine
Noted chicken enthusiast Beyoncé toasts her maturity in her new single.
Snippets of ‘Grown Woman’ first appeared in last month’s rug-pulling Pepsi advert. In contrast to the lacquered surfaces of The 20/20 Experience, ‘Grown Woman’ sees Timbo on playful and experimental form, crafting an instrumental that’s two parts moombahton, one part Song Of The South. B, aided and abetted by The-Dream, continues to push the warrior queen motifs found on ‘Run The World (Girls)’ and ‘Bow Down/I Been On’.
Note: The-Dream’s also been working with Beyoncé cohort Kelly Rowland. FACT’s review of Beyoncé’s recent O2 jaunt is here. [via Miss Info]

YYYs @ GoogaMooga 2013
We've already posted photos from the first two bands (The Darkness and The Flaming Lips) to play the Great GoogaMooga kickoff concert on Friday (5/17). Here are a set from headliners Yeah Yeah Yeahs who were the only band to actually get to play after sunset. A few shots of Chairlift, who played two different DJ sets that day and who will perform in the same location of the park this summer, are also in this post.
Did you go on Friday? How was your GoogaMooga experience?
Right after playing GoogaMooga, YYYs hopped down to Gulf Shores, Alabama to play the 2013 Hangout Fest on Sunday (5/19).
"About halfway through the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Hangout Music Festival set, frontwoman Karen O took a moment to make a special announcement before playing the band's 2004 breakout single "Maps." "This is dedicated to Stevie Wonder," she called out to the thousands of fans who showed up to catch the Yeah's set. The iconic R&B star was slated to follow the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the Hangout Stage as the weekend's headliner." [MTV]---
Despite not having the most successful event either this year (rain) or last year (lines), a Channel 12 report claims GoogaMooga will be back in 2014. Meanwhile, BV Chicago reports that GoogaMooga might be coming to Chicago in A...
