PREMIERE: Adrian Teacher & The Subs hit fast forward on gentrification
May 25, 2016 11:14am | Chart Attack
Adrian Teacher used to play in Apollo Ghosts and COOL TV, both venerable Vancouver bands, but with his new band The Subs he's able to take a wider, more sardonic gaze at the world and survey "a rapidly changing city, an endangered planet, faltering relationships and personal loss." And, especially, gentrification.
The video for "Terminal City," the title track from the band's upcoming You've Changed debut, speeds the process of gentrification to two and a half hilarious, teachable minutes of claymation.
Drawn to the "character" of an old Vancouver neighbourhood, young professionals open up their artisanal nuts shops, their artisanal oils shops, their artisanal marijuana dispensaries with their artisanal doctors on Skype, and before you know it giant babies are suckling craft beer and going Godzilla all over the block. Then everyone goes for pho.
Designed and animated by drummer/singer Sub Amanda Pezzutto, the 2:25 video took three painstaking months to make, while the song was recorded in "a few takes live to tape in Montreal on the hottest day of the year," Teacher remembers.
"First song the Subs learned together as a band, last song they play at the show."
"Terminal City, the last stop on the train...isolation now ends. Will Adrian surf the wave?"
Adrian Teacher & The Subs' Terminal City is out May 27 on You've Cha...

Real Estate announce departure of Matt Mondanile, replaced by Julian Lynch
May 25, 2016 11:05am | Cosequence Of Sound
Real Estate have announced that they’ve parted ways with founding member Matt Mondanile. In a statement, the band said that Mondanile would be focusing his energy on Ducktails, a project he began working on prior to Real Estate’s formation in 2009. Stepping in for the departing guitarist will be Julian Lynch, an accomplished musician in his own right who also happens to hail from the band’s hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey.
But consider this a bad news, good news situation, as Real Estate have also revealed new dates for their “Going Up the Country 2016” tour. The shows will find the new lineup traversing California from Santa Ana to Sonoma. What’s more, the announcement adds that the concerts are “a prelude to the recording of their next album, tentatively slated for early 2017.”
So though fans have to say goodbye to a long-time band member, they’ll soon be able to say hello to a follow-up to 2014’s Atlas. (And it sounds like we can expect more Ducktails material soon, as well.) Read Real Estate’s full statement below, followed by their complete tour itinerary.
“Having previously announced a short run of shows in California and a show at Red Rocks Amphitheater with The National, Real Estate expand on this by adding two further California dates. This limited run of dates is a prelude to the recording of their next album, tentat...
Hoodboi gets a hypnotic video for thumping new single Closer
May 25, 2016 11:00am | Fact Magazine
LA producer Roger Schami’s new single is a mesmerising tangle of heavy bass, frenzied dance beats and melodic vocals, so it’s only fair that the track now has a mesmerising video to accompany it.
Directed by SHINOSM, the clip for ‘Closer’ featuring New York duo ASTR, on what’s Hoodboi‘s first new music since last year’s celebrated Palm Reader EP sees artist Anny Wang’s artwork for the single morph into a CGI spectacle featuring underwater light-shows and electrical storms, witnessed from clouds.
“Initially, I reached out to Anny Wang to create the still artwork for ‘Closer’. We had worked together in the past on my first EP Palm Reader and the remix EP. The original concept for ‘Closer’ was two bodies reaching out towards each other, yet never truly touching and creating a sense of tension,” says Hoodboi. “Once it was time to create the video, I hit up Shin who I had worked with in the past on my side-project Athletixx.”
Hoodboi has also rounded up friends from around the globe to put their own spin on ‘Closer’ for a must-hear remix EP on Fools Gold. You can purchase the ‘Closer’ remix package here.

Swing Ting MC Fox releases Florentino-produced Vacio featuring Trigganom
May 25, 2016 10:33am | Fact Magazine
Fox is the next to get a Swing Ting release.
It’s been less than two years since Manchester club night Swing Ting launched its own eponymous label, but the prolific releases are consistent and impressive. Next up is Fox’s Musik, an EP deeply rooted in inspiration from both Manchester and Kingston, where the MC has split time most of his life.
Those influences are especially apparent on single ‘Vacio’, which is perfectly bashment-primed – if the party is not just inhabited by people who know how to wine up to Beenie Man, but are also well-versed in minimalist electronics. The synthesis, helmed by Swing Ting producer Florentino, takes dancehall into a new sphere, the kind of thing Swing Ting has always been adept at.
Fox’s Musik is out June 17 via Swing Ting.

Factory Floor return with ultra-minimalist 25 25 album
May 25, 2016 10:32am | Fact Magazine
The LP is inspired by late night club rhythms.
Industrial synth two-piece Factory Floor have announced details of their second album, 25 25.
Released on August 19, the album is once again released on DFA Records, and is the first since the departure of founding member Dominic Butler.
As the label explains, the album was inspired by the duo’s increasing number of late night club shows, which contributed to the album’s “stark, ultra-minimalist and eerily soulful dancefloor pulse.”
The first single to emerge from the album is ‘Dial Me In’, which Nik Void says was the first track she and bandmate Gabe Gurnsey wrote when starting the album.
“At this time we were both exploring new set ups – some unfamiliar gear like modular systems, as well as various machines combined with regular old stuff like my Roland sampler, live drums and effected live vocals,” Void says in a press release.
Factory Floor formed in 2005, and gained themselves a formidable live reputation before releasing their self-titled debut album in 2013.
Combining brittle guitar textures with muscular synths, the band have drawn comparisons with early industrial acts. Void has since gone on to work with Throbbing Gristle members Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti on two albums as Carter Tutti Vo...
