Jungle classics, Diagonal and outsider Ibiza: the weeks best free mixes
Feb 27, 2015 12:46pm | Fact Magazine

Each week, FACTs John Twells and Chris Kelly trawl through the untamed world of free mixes, radio specials and live blends so you dont have to.

This week’s haul includes a nostalgic set of classic jungle from one of the scene’s most well-known characters – a mix that’s especially relevant with the news that legendary London store Black Market has closed – a selection of Memphis-influenced electronic music, some noisy material from the Diagonal camp and a mix we’re labelling “outsider Ibiza” – make of that what you will.

We profiled Atlanta indie rockers Warehouse last spring ahead of the release of their debut LP Tesseract that they dropped for free that summer on bandcamp. The band since signed to Bayonet (Dustin from Beach Fossils' new label) and plan to re-release Tesseract on the label on March 3. The bandcamp's stream been taken down, but you can listen to "Promethean Gaze" below.

Warehouse are currently on tour with Breathers, which hits NYC twice this weekend. The first is tonight (2/27) at new Bushwick venue Alphaville with True Blue on the bill too. Admission is $8 at doors. More info at the Facebook event. Then, they play Cameo on Saturday (2/28) with Caged Animals and Turnip King. Advance tickets for that one are on sale.

The National are recording their Grateful Dead tribute w/ Will Oldham, Lee Ranaldo, Tallest Man on Earth & more (pics)
Feb 27, 2015 12:18pm | Brooklyn Vegan

the whole crew (via)

The National have been talking about an all-star indie rock tribute to The Grateful Dead for long time now, and 2015 would be a good year to finally release it given all the excitment surrounding The Dead's 50th anniversary. It's seeming like a possibility that that will in fact be the case, as the band are/were up in Woodstock at Dreamland Recordings working on it.

We already knew they were planning to include members of Vampire Weekend, Bon Iver, Kurt Vile, The Walkmen and Megafaun, and from the pictures they've been posting on Instagram, it's looking like way more really exciting people are involved too. It had already been talked about to maybe include Sonic Youth guitarist and major Dead fan Lee Ranaldo, but it's now confirmed that he recorded at Dreamland with them too. Will Oldham (aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy) is there (!). Kristian Matsson (aka The Tallest Man on Earth) is there. Cass McCombs and Phil Lesh collaborator Joe Russo, who both just played a Dead tribute in Brooklyn were there, and Sam Amidon too. Yellowbirds/Josh Ritter's band, etc member Josh Kaufman, and Takka Takka/Gabriel and the Hounds/sometimes National, etc member Conrad Doucette are in the pictures too.

Looks like this is turning out even more exciting than it first seemed. Check out more pictures from the recording sessions below...

City of Ships are releasing the followup to 2011's Minor World this year with Ultraluminal, due April 21 via Science of Silence Records. If you're unfamiliar with the band, consider that they've released a split and toured with Rosetta, and that they're on a Hum tribute album, and you've probably got a pretty good idea of their sound. Also, if you've ever heard Deftones cover Jawbox, they're a little like that too. Get a taste of the new album from the single "Alarm," below.

They'll celebrate the record with a release show in Brooklyn on April 5 at Saint Vitus, where they'll actually be the opener on the previously-mentioned Single Mothers / Dirty Nil show. Tickets are still available. After that show they'll head to Europe to tour there with Junius. All dates are listed below.

Male Bonding cover "Still Ill" on upcoming Smiths tribute LP with Kevin Devine, Soft Metals, Field Mouse & more (listen)
Feb 27, 2015 12:07pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

The Smiths' groundbreaking self-titled debut album turned 30 last week (2/20), and in honor of that Reimagine Music will be releasing a tribute album called Tease Torment Tantalize: A 30th Anniversary Tribute To The Smiths' Debut on March 24 (pre-order). The album features covers by Male Bonding, Kevin Devine, Soft Metals, Field Mouse, Seapony, Jaymay, Blackbird Blackbird, Mother Falcon, Young Statues, Heidemann and more. Full tracklist (including three bonus tracks) below.

We've got the premiere of British punks Male Bonding's take on "Still Ill" Vocally, Male Bonding do their best Morrissey for this and keep some of Johnny Marr's guitar lines, but they otherwise turn it into a driving lo-fi jam not unlike the stuff on their own albums. Listen below.

Male Bonding have also presumably/hopefully been teasing album #3 by dropping a couple recent singles to their Soundcloud. You can stream those below as well.

Stream Zula/annexs psychedelic Water Pressure EP inspired by the Internet and the ocean
Feb 27, 2015 11:58am | Fact Magazine

Inspired by internet traveling through undersea cables, Brooklyn’s Zula rethought their entire musical approach to become Zula/annex.

While half of the Brooklyn psych band Zula were putting the final touches on their new LP, cousins Henry and Nate Terepka took the time to record a new EP of their own as Zula/annex. Inspired by the image of internet speeding through undersea fiber-optic cables, the duo play with the themes of technology and water creatively. Shifting to a significantly more electronic set up the Terepkas began experimenting with different ways to blend their digital and natural worlds. Filtering and distorting all their vocals through recorded Skype calls and crushing generic synth samples through analog filters the band created something that sounds pastoral even while the digital destruction bears down. Stream the entire EP below and grab it March 10 via Inflated Records.

Leonard Nimoy, RIP
Feb 27, 2015 11:52am | Brooklyn Vegan
Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut "Star Trek," died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Mr. Nimoy announced last year that he had the disease, which he attributed to years of smoking, a habit he had given up three decades earlier. He had been hospitalized earlier in the week.

His artistic pursuits -- poetry, photography and music in addition to acting -- ranged far beyond the United Federation of Planets, but it was as Mr. Spock that Mr. Nimoy became a folk hero, bringing to life one of the most indelible characters of the last half century: a cerebral, unflappable, pointy-eared Vulcan with a signature salute and blessing: "Live long and prosper" (from the Vulcan "Dif-tor heh smusma"). [NY Times]

Well that is sad news for Trekkies, Trekkers, Federation members, Klingons, Romulans and just about everyone else. In addition to his role on Star Trek (which he reprised for JJ Abrams' reboot), Leonard Nimoy was also a castmember of Mission: Impossible, and was a memorable murderer on the 1973 Columbo episode, "A Stitch in Crime." He was also a director, having ...

Watch Vampire Weekends Ezra Koenig Get Burned By Triumph The Insult Comic Dog
Feb 27, 2015 11:41am | StereoGum
Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend has become one of those cultural fixtures that’s bigger than just the indie rock community. His Twitter feed is funnier than most professional comics, he’ll randomly show up on a song with Makonnen and Despot, and now Koenig is letting a cigar-smoking puppet dog insult him on TV. Who is […]

Super Furry Animals announce 2015 UK tour dates and deluxe 'Mwng' reissue (dates, streams)
Feb 27, 2015 11:37am | Brooklyn Vegan

After teasing us with a few videos, Super Furry Animals officially confirm they're back in action, announcing a few UK tour dates for May. Those are listed below and let's hope for North American dates sooner than later. They haven't played here in six years.

The other news on the SFA front is they're reissuing their long-out-of print fourth album, Mwng, via Domino on May 5. Originally released in 2000, it's the Furries' only full length sung entirely in Welsh -- the title translates to "Mane" -- and remains the biggest-selling Welsh album in UK chart history (and, therefore, probably the world). Despite the scarcity of vowels, there are no shortage of great, catchy songs and it's one of SFA's best albums (it's my second favorite, next to Radiator). The deluxe edition vinyl is on three discs, containing the Mwng Batch bonus disc that came with the original US edition of the CD, plus a previously unreleased Peel session from the time and full live set recorded at ATP. Pre-orders are available now, and you can stream a few songs from Mwng, and check out the deluxe vinyl/CD tracklists, below.

R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek actor dead at 83
Feb 27, 2015 11:32am | Cosequence Of Sound

Leonard Nimoy, the beloved actor who famously portrayed Spock in the Star Trek film and television franchise, has died at the age of 83. According to his wife, the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He passed away Friday at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles.

Nimoy earned three Emmy Awards for portraying the half-Vulcan, half-human Spock on the Star Trek original television series, which aired between 1966 and 1969. In addition to voicing the character on Star Trek: The Animated Series in the early ’70s, he reprised the role in the first six Star Trek films. He directed two of those movies himself, including 1986’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, the second highest grossing film in the franchise to date. He also lensed Three Men and a Baby, the highest grossing film of 1987.

Nimoy enjoyed a career working in numerous genre shows, including the original Mission: Impossible TV show, the documentary series In Search Of…, and most recently Fringe. He also provided the voice of two Transformers: Galvatron in the animated classic The Transformers: The Movie and Sentinel Prime in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Most recently, he played the elder Spock Prime in the 2009 Star Trek reboot as well as its 2012 sequel, Star Trek Int...


Action Bronson releases crazy video for Actin Crazy watch
Feb 27, 2015 11:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

In the video for his Noah 40 Shebib-produced single “Actin Crazy”, Action Bronson explores the endless possibility of green screen. The clip sees him riding everything from a robotic flying griffin to a metal shark with freakin’ lazer beams. He also goes one-on-one on the court with Godzilla in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. It all goes down in one continuous shot while he munches breakfast cereal between takes like a boss. Check out the ridiculously appropriate video below.

“Actin Crazy” comes from Bam Bam’s upcoming major label debut, Mr. Wonderful, due out March 24th via Vice/Atlantic Records. Check out previously released cuts Easy Rider, A Light in the Addict, and “Terry”.
