Feb 10, 2016 12:04pm | StereoGum
Preceding the release of their seventh studio album We Disappear and, aptly, Valentine's Day, the Thermals' new single "My Heart Went Cold" is a hard-hitting, upbeat rock and roll number without a semblance of passivity. This song swells through its intro and into a defiant chorus in which lead vocalist Hutch Harris sings over driving, … More »
Purling Hiss My, My, My
Feb 10, 2016 12:03pm | StereoGum
Philadelphia garage psych-rockers Purling Hiss have been quiet since 2014's Weirdon, but that album was some joyful lo-fi chaos with plenty of Philly attitude, so to hear from them anytime is welcome. The band is back and ready to drop their four-track Something EP. They shared the lead single "Fumble Tumble" a week … More »

together PANGEA share new video for My Head Is On Too Tight watch
Feb 10, 2016 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound
together PANGEA may have worked with The Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson on last year’s The Phange EP, but that doesn’t mean they’re some big time rock stars now. No, the Los Angeles troupe are still just a bunch of chilled out punks who like to rock ridiculous mustaches and lie back on some grass. That’s pretty much all they do in their new video for “My Head Is On Too Tight”. That, and of course play some blissful garage rock tunes.
Check out the Zoe Reign-directed clip below.

Sonic The Hedgehog is coming to a theater near you
Feb 10, 2016 11:45am | Fact Magazine
Your inner child may be cheering (or crying) right now.
Sonic The Hedgehog, Sega’s posterboy and the only 90s video game mascot able to compete with Nintendo’s Mario, is coming to the silver screen.
Hajime Satomi, CEO of the Sonic’s parent company Sega Sammy Holdings, confirmed the plan today in an interview with World Folio. Satomi says the company is working with Sony Pictures to bring a hybrid live-action/animated Sonic film to theaters in 2018. Yes, that makes us nervous too.
We’re pretty big fans of Sonic here at FACT — especially the music. We featured the excellent soundtrack to Sonic 3 & Knuckles on our list of the best video game soundtracks of all time and then went even deeper on the the blue blur with a FACT Focus mix. Revisit that below.

Eddie Vedder covers The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour in trailer for Netflixs Beat Bugs
Feb 10, 2016 11:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
Beat Bugs is he name of a new animated series inspired by The Beatles, the one-time band of audio emoji innovator Paul McCartney. Each episode draws its story from a different Beatles song, which means the episode based on “Happiness Is a Warm Gun” should be a real trip.
Because Netflix blew too much money on reviving Full House, the soundtrack does not feature any original Beatles material, but rather covers sung by the likes of The Shins, Regina Spektor, Chris Cornell, and Sia. Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is also a contributor, and you can hear his magnificent interpretation of “Magical Mystery Tour” in the show’s newly revealed trailer.
Beat Bugs is set to premiere on Netflix in August.

Feb 10, 2016 11:28am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Britta Phillips has made records with Luna and as one half of Dean & Britta, not to mention her early-'90s band The Belltower. (She was also the singing voice of Jem.) Here comes her first solo album, Luck Or Magic, which will be out April 29 via Double Feature Records. The record started as a collaboration with electronic producer Scott Hardkiss, who died in 2013. She shelved the project for a while but came back to it with help from producer Eric Broucek. The album is half covers (including The Cars' "Drive" and Dennis Wilson's "Fallin' In Love") and half Phillips originals. The first single is a gorgeous cover of Evie Sands' "One Fine Summer Morning" from 1969, and you can listen to that below.
Speaking of, Dean & Britta recorded the soundtrack to Noah Baumbach's 2015 film Mistress America, and released a 7" single last month with Britta covered Dylan's "Don't Think Twice" on one side, and they both tackle Paul and Paula's 1962 hit "Hey Paula." you can listen to the Dylan cover below as well.

Manchesters Levelz to play Hackneys Shapes in May
Feb 10, 2016 11:26am | Fact Magazine
Watch out London: the Mancs are coming.
MCR crew Levelz – the loose-knit, 14-strong group of MCs, DJs and producers – will take over Shapes in Hackney Wick on May 27 for what is bound to be a gloriously mixed bag of a show. They’ve even been described as “Wu-Tang meets the Happy Mondays.”
Last month saw their release of the LVL 11 mixtape, which takes in hip-hop, grime and dubstep to drum & bass, house and even a sprinkling of jazz.
And in other non-music related Levelz news, they made a bit of a name for themselves in December when they hijacked the social media channels of embattled booking agency Elastic Artists, as a form of protest against unpaid debts.

Last night, Lana Del Rey debuted a new video for "Freak," a standout from her 2015 release Honeymoon.

Battles 2006 classic EP C/B EP comes to vinyl
Feb 10, 2016 11:13am | Fact Magazine
Mirrored and Gloss Drop will also be repressed.
Warp has announced a comprehensive campaign of Battles reissues, with all of the band’s early releases available on vinyl again.
As well as represses of Mirrored and Gloss Drop in the original deluxe packaging, the classic EP C/B EP will be available on vinyl for the first time.
EP C/B EP was originally released on CD by Warp in 2006 when Battles could still be loosely classified as a math rock band, and compiled the music from EP C on Monitor Records, the B EP on Dim Mak, and the Tras single on Cold Sweat Records.
While Tras and B EP saw a vinyl release, none of EP C has been previously available on wax. Warp’s reissue features new gatefold artwork by Battles guitarist Dave Konopka, and comes as a double LP.
The reissues all arrive on April 1 and join last year’s La Di Da Di. Battles will also be touring in spring – dates for that below.

Yeasayer share dreamy new song, bizarre Donald Trump-inspired album artwork
Feb 10, 2016 11:05am | Cosequence Of Sound
On April 1st, Yeasayer are set to return with their fourth studio album, Amen & Goodbye, via Mute Records. Spanning 13 tracks, the follow-up to 2012’s Fragrant World was recorded at Outlier Inn Studio in New York with help from Joey Waronker of Atoms for Peace.
Last month, the Brooklyn natives revealed “I Am Chemistry”, the excellent lead single and their first new song in nearly three years. Now, they’re sharing another offering, a slowly unfurling psych pop gem.
The track, whose title has not been revealed, can be heard in a new video that showcases more of Amen & Goodbye’s bizarre artwork from David Altmejd. The band describe it as “Sgt. Pepper meets Hieronymus Bosch meets Dali meets Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” which sounds just about right.
Check it out below.
And for kicks, see if you can spot the Donald Trump reference in this video screenshot:
