Twin Peaks soundtrack to be released on vinyl in August
May 6, 2016 12:03pm | Fact Magazine
Twin Peaks fans and vinyl nerds rejoice!
Announced back in February 2014 and expected to be released October 2015, the wait for Angelo Badalamentis Twin Peaks soundtrack on vinyl via Death Waltz/Mondo has been a long one. But now it is set to finally drop this year.
Death Waltz announced today on Twitter that they would be releasing the soundtrack in August, although no exact date has been specified. You can stay up-to-date by subscribing to Mondo’s newsletter.
A summer release date should keep superfans of the show at least moderately satiated as the wait for Showtime’s Twin Peaks reboot wanes. The first of two seasons is slated to begin at the top of 2017. Principal photography for the series wrapped last month and a massive cast list was unveiled, revealing an almost-absurd number of cameos, with everyone from Trent Reznor and Sky Ferreira to John Ennis and Matthew Lillard. Badalamenti was also tapped to score the new series.

Con Brio announces debut album, Paradise, shares single Free and Brave listen

Have you heard of Con Brio? You should.
The most exciting act to come out of last year’s Austin City Limits Festival was without a doubt San Francisco’s soul squeezing septet. Led by frontman Ziek McCarter, and fueled by the Hallelujah Horns of Marcus Stephens and Brendan Liu, the shimmy shaking outfit conquered the Tito’s tent early Friday afternoon. The entire weekend was ahead of us, but their unique blend of cheery funk and soulful R&B set a watermark that no other act could touch.
Although they’ve been around since 2013 — and dropped their sizzling Kiss the Sun EP last year — they’ve yet to release an official full-length debut. Come July 15th, they’ll do just that when they open the doors to Paradise. Produced by Mario Caldato Jr. (Beastie Boys, Beck, Seu Jorge), the 12-track album is “a declaration of independence you can dance to; an assertion of what can happen when the human spirit is truly free,” as the press release notes.
The album’s title comes “one of the most spiritual moments of my life,” McCarter notes, referring to a vivid dream he had involving his father, an Army veteran who died at the hands of the East Texas police in 2011. In the dream, his father had one specific message for his son — an invitation, in fact: “Come wi...

Stream: OxenFrees debut album Beacons

Oftentimes, artists use albums in order examine on very specific relationships or micro moments of their lives (a breakup, birth, death, etc.). For Brooklyn four-piece OxenFree, however, it was important for them to broaden their scope and to see the bigger picture. Thats why, when it came time to put together debut album Beacons, they decided to step back and reflect on their adolescence and adulthood, as well as the character-defining metamorphosis that takes place in between these two particular stages.
The New York indie rock outfit comprised of Christopher Burns (drums), Jeff Doyle (guitars, vocals, keys), Sam Ghitelman (guitars), Emily Olson (vocals, keys), Sean Padden (bass) found itself wrestling with dualities, the childlike curiosity and disregard associated with growing pains and the clarity and self-awareness of grown-up thinking. OxenFrees music, which juxtaposes poppy melodies and precise, hefty guitar work, seemed to mirror the subject matters at hand.
The writing in the album spans seven years (two in college, five out), with a tracklist that includes angsty anthems (Kids, Believers) and nods to youthful antics (Fine Dining, Make Out), alongside a more reflective, mature set of songs (Captain, Everybody Knows), Doyle explains to Consequence of Sound. He considers the full-length as eleven snapshots or beacons of their lives.
Doyle concludes, The result is a...
The weeks best mixes: South American techno, New York vogue and Cooly G
May 6, 2016 11:43am | Fact Magazine
Each week, FACT trawls through the untamed world of free mixes, radio specials and live blends so you dont have to.
A mix of summertime bangers from UK funky pioneer Cooly G sits at the top of this week’s list, along with an equally thumping selection from The Hague’s finest, Legowelt. There’s also room for selections from rising Australian star Mall Grab and Discwoman’s Volvox, who showcases her South American take on techno.
Ahead of her set at The Yard in east London later this month, Hyperdub stalwart Cooly G has thrown together a sizzling hot banger of a mix. Firing up a selection of choice UK Funky-ready beats, with bass dips and drums tripping over themselves in a flurry of highly danceable shapes, this is a fortuitous blend to seriously get you in the mood for summer.
Legowelt puts out more records in a year than an average pressing plant, but DJ mixes from The Hagues finest are actually quite uncommon. This selection for Thumps new mix series is a reminder that hes a fantastic DJ as well as a demon in the studio, combining his own smudged beats with lo-fi crunch from MGUN, Seven Davis Jr, Paranoid London and more. A lot of the tracks here are pretty recent, but in Legowelts hands they sound ...

Pink Floyds entire catalog to be reissued on vinyl for first time in 20 years
May 6, 2016 11:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
For the past two decades, the only way Pink Floyd fans have been able to pad their vinyl collections has been by digging deep into record store bins with fingers crossed. But it’ll soon be much easier to snatch up those releases, as the band has announced an extensive vinyl reissue campaign for its entire catalog.
Beginning June 3rd and lasting throughout the year, Pink Floyd Records will release fresh vinyl pressings of every record in the iconic rockers’ catalog, the first such releases in over 20 years. The first batch of reissues will include Floyd’s first four releases: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets, the soundtrack for More, and the live/studio double-LP set Ummagumma.
Each record will be housed in meticulously recreations of the original packaging. James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman handled mastering for the first four reissues, which will be distributed by Warner Music in Europe and Sony Music everywhere else.
Release dates for the rest of the catalog will be rolled out regularly throughout the year. Bellow, check out the cover art for the Ummagumma reissue.

Aesop Rock Dorks Video
May 6, 2016 11:26am | StereoGum
NY underground rap stalwart Aesop Rock dropped his solid seventh album, The Impossible Kid, last week. The album has a very dark undercurrent, and "Dorks" is one of its bleakest tracks. Its video is just as dark, starting with a mysterious black-gloved figure pulling out a "missing" flier with the rapper's picture on it … More »

Listen to The Wheel from inc.
May 6, 2016 11:18am | My Old Kentucky Blog
Since dropping their debut album No World back in 2013, things have been relatively sparse for Los Angeles brothers inc. outside of a collaboration with FKA twigs in 2014 and song “A Teardrop From Below” released last year. However, things might be changing with the unveiling of the next level song “The Wheel” or at least we can only hope. The song is a tremendous impression of emotional lyric-driven soul laced with guitar work that would make even Prince, D’Angelo, and even Hall & Oates proud. We are anxiously crossing our fingers for a new album from the pair this year.

Danny L Harle teams up with Chairlifts Caroline Polachek on new single Ashes of Love listen
May 6, 2016 11:00am | Cosequence Of Sound
PC Musics Danny L Harle has teamed up with Caroline Polachek of synthpop duo Chairlift for a new song called Ashes of Love. The track comes on the heels of Harles 2015 Broken Flowers EP and is available to purchase via PC Music and Sony Music beginning today. Check it out via Soundcloud below.
Polachek has stayed busy this year, releasing full-length Moth with Chairlift in January. She delivers an impressive pop vocal performance on Ashes of Love, and Harle raved about working with her in a statement:
“Caroline has a completely unique melodic style. It sounds like a kind of perfect, organic, distorted symmetry. I was so excited to work with her as I love her music, particularly Chairlift’s ‘I Belong in Your Arms’, which I think is one of the best pop tunes I have ever heard in my life. I love how her melodies are so closely related to her singing voice. This is different to me as I see my melodies as an object which I gradually craft in front of me. Caroline’s style of writing worked really well with mine as we are both so detail obsessed. I feel that the combination of our styles has produced a track like no other. I am so excited about “Ashes of Love,” it has a forward thrust and a sense of hyper-emotion to it that I really love in music. It has a nostalgic and romantic heart but is positioned very much in the present day.”
And heres what Polachek had to say about collaborating wi...
