Watch A Loopy Neil Young Talk About PONO & GMOs On Colbert
May 27, 2016 8:22am | StereoGum
Neil Young and Stephen ColbertEarlier this week, crotchety old rock legend Neil Young turned heads when he said that he was totally OK with the idea of Donald Trump using his music at campaign rallies. That's pretty weird! And you'd think it would be the sort of thing that Stephen Colbert would bring up when he had Young … More »


Radioheads secret weapon Oliver Coates brings the spirit of Arthur Russell back to the dancefloor
May 27, 2016 8:12am | Fact Magazine

You might not recognise the name, but Oliver Coates has just dropped one best albums of the year.

Upstepping sees the UK musician fuse electronic arrangements with elements of deep house, techno, ambient and rattling footwork in a gorgeous collection of minimalist dance tunes. But what may come as a surprise is that hes a classically trained cellist who graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with the highest grades in the institution’s history. Upstepping is crafted entirely from chopping, distorting and reworking sounds from his cello, creating music that evokes the stark landscapes of Autechre (a group he’s been obsessed with since his teens) as much as the disco experiments of his closest comparison, avant-cellist Arthur Russell.

2016 is set to be Coates biggest year. As well as the release of Upstepping and programming a weekend of “deep minimalism” performances at the Southbank Centre, his cello playing with the London Contemporary Orchestra has formed the backbone of the new Radiohead album, A Moon Shaped Pool. He created the rhythmic drive of Burn The Witch by picking up a plectrum and just twatting the cello, he says, while the orchestral elements composed for ‘Daydreaming’ were hailed by Thom Yorke as the sound of the album.

Hes also worked with Jonny Greenwood before, playing on the Radiohead guitarist’s soundtracks for Paul Thom...

Swiss electro-pop originals Yello announce first ever live shows and new album Toy
May 27, 2016 7:51am | Fact Magazine

The electro-pop jokers will take to the stage in Berlin this year.

Swiss duo Yello, who created some of the most raucously inventive and goofy electronic music of the 80s, will return with their 13th studio album on September 30, titled Toy.

“Taking in liquid techno, continental torch songs and myriad gleaming points in between, Toy is unmistakably the sound of Dieter Meier and Boris Blank gleefully working at the top of their game,” the press release states.

But more excitingly for fans of the ‘Oh Yeah’ innovators, Dieter Meier and Boris Blank have also announced the first live shows in their 38-year career at Berlins Kraftwerk on October 26 and 28. The dup will be joined on stage by guest singers Malia and Fifi Rong as well as many of the live musicians who helped to record Toy.

With the decision to play live for the first time ever at the Kraftwerk Berlin, a new era for Yello begins said Meier. “Get out of cyberspace and into the live experience, with operatic staging in the aesthetics of the Yello videos.”

Blank added: At the center of our show are more than 20 Yello songs that I have ‘reloaded’ for live performance. Of course, we will play the Yello hits, but also tracks from the new album Toy to the future through the past.”

Tickets for both shows are on sale now. W...

This MIDI controller is like a cross between a guitar and a harp
May 27, 2016 4:34am | Fact Magazine

Mune is a wireless instrument launching on Kickstarter soon.

Canadian startup Mune has previewed a new MIDI controller, which it says combines the convenience of a digital device with “the soul of a traditional instrument.”

The Mune has been designed with live performance in mind, and can be held by the performer to face the audience like a guitar or a small harp. It also features wireless connectivity, so the performer doesn’t need to be physically tied to a laptop to use it.

The instrument’s short video preview doesn’t offer any detail on how its 24 touch strips and accelerometer are meant to be played, but it can control a wide range of software and can be used to play melodies, shape sound, program loops, control effects and mix tracks.

Mune is the brainchild of Scott Stevenson and composer and music professor Andrew Staniland, who found that audiences were unsatisfied with the traditional digital controllers used in Staniland’s electroacoustic performances.

Staniland explains in a press release: I found that I was at a disadvantage making music electronically, because, while I was doing a lot of things on stage like the other musicians, there was no visible cause-and-effect between my actions and the sound.”
