Lets try to solve the lineup for Backwoods Camping & Music Festival 2015
Feb 27, 2015 9:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

Backwoods Camping & Music Festival will return to Stroud, Oklahoma over Labor Day Weekend (September 4th through 6th). Held at The Tatanka Ranch just off Route 66, the festival features six “venues” around the grounds, like the Meadow, with its DJ Booth up in a treehouse; SolLun, with its bar made from 100% recycled material; or Nirvana Woodlands, which is pretty self-explanatory.

Populating those venues will be a vast array of musical talent from across the genres. Today, Backwoods unveiled the full lineup … sort of. The poster below contains the name of each and every artist appearing at the festival this year, but if you’ve never heard of “Ltz Efhsoide” or can’t pronounce “Insdydircpht,” you’re not going insane. The names have been jumbled about and it’s up to you to set them straight.

For multi-part names, you’ll see the correct number of letters in each part, but not necessarily the correct letters themselves. In other words, the first part of “Tie Mucsro” doesn’t have to be “Tie” or “Eit” or “Tei”, but it could be “Tom” or “Rum” or “Tre”.  Get it?

Give it your best shot and post your guesses in the comments below. To find out how good your anagram skills are, check back on Consequence of Sound this Monday, March 2nd at 5 p.m. EST to se...



Sleater-Kinney played their first of two Terminal 5 shows with Lizzo, and 'Seth Meyers' (pics, setlist, review, video)

Sleater-Kinney @ T5 - 2/26/15

Sleater-Kinney kicked off their reunion tour in Washington earlier this month, and last night (2/26) they finally made their triumphant return to NYC. It was their first of two sold-out Terminal 5 shows and first time playing here since Webster Hall in 2006. And "sold out" is no understatement. This place was packed, maybe oversold. They probably could've added a third night and sold that out too. It makes sense for a lot of reasons: Sleater-Kinney are a beloved band, they've been gone for way too long, their old songs still sound great today, and they still have every bit of what made them special in the first place. But that's true for a lot of reunited bands, of which there seem to be more of each day. What Sleater-Kinney have that American Football, or The Blood Brothers, or even The Replacements don't, is new songs. A whole album's worth. Almost half the set was new songs, and they weren't these flimsy reunion tunes that had the crowd wishing for old favorites -- the new material rivals their best work.

The only downside was that Terminal 5 is a less-than-ideal place to see Sleater-Kinney. They still play like a punk band, relying more on their own personal power than the kind of extravagant stage show that can suit a venue that big. But even while I was wishing they would be turned up three times as loud, you couldn't deny that t...



Björk Weighs In On Spotify Debate
Feb 27, 2015 9:39am | StereoGum
The great Spotify debate rages on, and the latest artist to weigh in is Icelandic fairy queen Björk, who addressed the streaming service in an interview with Fast Company. Björk’s agonizing new album Vulnicura was born from her grief at the dissolution of her longterm romantic partnership with Matthew Barney, so when it leaked a […]



Toronto duo Twist released new single, playing two NYC shows this week & other dates
Feb 27, 2015 9:32am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Toronto duo Twist are musician Laura Hermiston and Holy Fuck's Brian Borcherdt, formed two years or so ago. Laura writes the songs, which have a '60s/'70s folk-rock vibe, and Borcherdt adds just enough grit in the production. It's certainly in the Mazzy Star system. Twist's new single, "Albequerque" is out next week and you can listen to it, plus check out a couple other songs and videos, below.

Twist will be crossing the Canadian border this weekend for a few Northeast shows, including two in NYC: Baby's All Right on Sunday (3/1) with LA band Corners, Brooklyn's Roya and DJ Alix Brown, and then Shea Stadium on March 6 with Your 33 Black Angels, Wild Bore, and Moon Tower. In between those two NYC shows, Twist will hit Boston on March 3, venue still TBA.

Björk pulls new album from Spotify: Its not about the money; its about respect
Feb 27, 2015 9:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Björks new album Vulnicura has been out for over a month now, however, it’s been conspicuously absent from Spotify’s otherwise expansive collection. It’s not an oversight by PR, label, and marketing folks, though. As the Icelandic singer details in a new interview, there’s a reason users of the streaming service (myself included) shouldn’t expect to see the LP pop up anytime soon: “It’s not about the money; it’s about respect.”

Vulnicura, Björk’s ninth studio album and one especially near and dear to her heart, was originally slated to hit shelves next month. An unfortunate leak forced her and her camp to surprise release the record two months early, a rushed process her label described as “nightmarish.” It’s not too surprising, then, that Björk is reluctant to put the album on Spotify where it can be streamed for mere pennies.

“Guess what? This streaming thing just does not feel right,” Björk said she told her manager. “I dont know why, but it just seems insane.” She added, “To work on something for two or three years and then just, Oh, here it is for free. Its not about the money; its about respect, you know? Respect for the craft and the amount of work you put into it.”

Going forward with her music, it looks as though she may take a cue from Netflix’s approach. “You go first to the cinema...

The onetime glam rock icon Gary Glitter may well spend the rest of his life behind bars, and yet it’s impossible to feel sorry for him. Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was found guilty of a number of sex crimes earlier this month. A British court found him guilty of having sex with […]



I need things to be tangible: Trevor Jackson on why hes releasing his new album across 12 different formats
Feb 27, 2015 9:00am | Fact Magazine

Originally published by The Vinyl Factory

In this candid and personal interview, graphic designer, producer, DJ and label boss Trevor Jackson speaks out about the contemporary music industry and the simple joy of physical formats some 14 years since his last release.

Trevor Jackson has spent his career refining the art of meaning. As a young designer given his break by Mel Meladies Champion Records and enlisted to design sleeves for dance records fresh off pirate radio, his contact with the artists themselves was limited. His subsequent breakthrough relationship with Stereo MCs may have addressed that in allowing him to work closely with musicians to form a coherent visual identity, but as he told Resident Advisor in 2011, something was still missing. I made a conscious decision to only do records sleeves for people whose music I liked, he explained. I probably could have done a lot more work, but I only wanted to do things I felt inspired by.

It was only a matter of time before Jackson assumed complete creative control and launched his own label, Output Recordings, taking as its logo a graphic visualization of a phono jack output which, perhaps in premonition of this very project, celebrated the beauty in the design of physical objects. Designing sleeves for releases hed A&R-ed himself with artists he admired, Jackson manufactured a label which at its height was likened to the Factory R...

Blade Runner sequel confirmed with Harrison Ford returning
Feb 27, 2015 8:54am | Cosequence Of Sound

Harrison Ford is confirmed to return as Rick Deckard in a sequel to the sci-fi cult classic Blade Runner. Oscar-nominated Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies, Prisoners) is in talks to helm the film, with the original’s director, Ridley Scott, aboard as producer.

The screenplay from Hampton Fancher, who wrote the seminal 1982 original, and Michael Green (TV’s HeroesGreen Lantern) was turned in late last year. Set “several decades” after the first film’s 2019 dystopian future, Ford reportedly told Scott the script is “the best thing hes ever read.”

Alcon Entertainment acquired the rights to Blade Runner in 2011, and the Warner Bros.-based production company’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson will produce alongside Scott.

We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners, said Kosove and Johnson in a joint statement. Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldnt be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team.

Below, watch a trailer for the Blade Runner 30th anniversary edition.



Sloan working on 'One Chord to Another' box set, playing Coachella ++ US tour dates in June
Feb 27, 2015 8:48am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Sloan, who released the very good Commonwealth last year, are busy working on the 20th anniversary vinyl box set reissue of 1996's One Chord to Another (my personal favorite Sloan album, if you were wondering). The box set, out next year, will be similar in size and content to the one they did for Twice Removed. Start saving now. A Rdio stream of One Chord to Another is below.

They'll also be doing some touring this year, playing Coachella in April and then a short Midwest/East Coast run this summer, including a stop at NYC's Rough Trade on June 29. Like last year's Bowery Ballroom show, the Rough Trade show will be comprised of two sets: a Commonweath set first (where the album is pretty much played in full), and then a second with songs from their whole catalog. Tickets for Rough Trade go on sale today at noon.

All dates are listed below...

London record store BM Soho formerly Black Market has closed
Feb 27, 2015 8:38am | Fact Magazine

Long-running London record store BM Soho appears to have closed.

Techno artist Truss tweeted a picture of the storefront today, explaining that the shop was empty, “except three or four records in the window.”

We’ve been down and can confirm that this is the case (see a closer image of the storefront below). The sign simply reads “due to circumstances, BM Soho has to close”, and says that Dub Vendor, the specialist store in its basement, will stay open until March 1.

The store, which opened in 1988 as Black Market Records, tweeted this week that they were now opening at 9am on weekdays, and were still tweeting about new releases as recently Wednesday. As pointed out on Facebookthe property is available for let.

BM Soho are yet to comment on this news, though people close to the store have said that the shop had been struggling for some time. We’re trying to find out more.

Update: BM Soho have made a statement on Facebook, explaining that “unfortunately due to contractual dispute over the building that has been home of BM Soho for the past 25 years we have been forced to temporarily close. Our landlord has been certain that our address will join the massive gentrification of Soho and regrettably we could no longer afford to fight the legal battle to stop that happening anymo...
