Listen: Sunless 97 Aia (Feat. Palmistry)
Nov 26, 2014 10:59am | CMJ


Recently we heard Pure4Sure, a seductively thumping single from London trio Sunless 97’s upcoming EP for Rinse FM. That song ended up being one of our favorite tracks of the week, so news of the single’s b-side is very welcome. Aia features production work from Palmistry, whose Ascensión mixtape dropped last week. It’s an almost desperately sensual song, its shy beat building from a soft tap to a Caribbean-influenced mid-tempo rhythm. Sunless 97’s 2-track EP is out December 1 on Rinse FM. Listen to Aia below.

Nov 26, 2014 10:58am | Fact Magazine

Another Harmonimix surfaces.

James Blake continues his long-running series of “Harmonimix” rap and R&B remixes with a reworking of Gorillaz favorite ‘Feel Good Inc’.

The remix turned up in a FABRICLIVE x Hit & Run Mix by Rich Reason, who notes that the remix is “from back in the day.”

Stream the remix and hear it in context below. In other Blake news, the singer-songwriter hopes to have a new album with a Kanye collaboration out in a few months and just released a new single.



Hear Little Pain and ISSUEs Aphex Twin-sampling Issues
Nov 26, 2014 10:55am | Fact Magazine

Sad boy rapper Little Pain returns with his weirdest joint to date.

It shouldn’t come as a massive surprise that notorious Bay Area oddball ISSUE is involved. The teaholic rapper (who, if you didn’t already know, is the son of the legendary E-40) adds his unique sound to the track, which chops out elements of Aphex Twin’s pioneering ‘Icct Hedral’ – a cut that appeared on both Donkey Rhubarb and I Care Because You Do before being remixed by none other than Philip Glass.

The familiar strings are chopped beneath sparse beats, forming an apt bed for Pain’s melancholy mutterings and it might be one of the finest moments for either artist thus far. It’s certainly a great taster of Little Pain’s forthcoming album L.I.T.T.L.E. which is set to land on December 2 and features guest spots from Michael Christmas, SKYWLKR, Friendzone and more. You can check the ace artwork above.


Body Stuff playing full-band (mem Mutilation Rites, ex-Today Is The Day) w/ Corrections House; MR playing w/ Black Breath
Nov 26, 2014 10:39am | Brooklyn Vegan

Curran Reynolds w/ Today is the Day at MDF 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)

Eyehategod/Neurosis/etc-related supergroup Corrections House will kick off their previously-discussed tour with Statiqbloom this weekend. As discussed that tour hits NYC for a sweet show at Saint Vitus on Monday (12/1) with Uniform (ex-The Men, Drunkdriver) and Body Stuff. Tickets for Vitus are still available.

In our initial post, we referred to Body Stuff as a one-man project, and it is indeed the brainchild of local heavy polyglot Curran Reynolds (ex-Today is the Day and much more). Only the live show at Saint Vitus will feature a four-piece lineup including Rush Moody, Ryan Jones and Matt Kepler. Ryan is also ex-TITD and is a member of local rippers Mutilation Rites, who Rush has also joined as a live member. Matt is known for metal-related design projects and also worked at the now-closed Lit Lounge. Body Stuff's self-titled EP, which is streaming below, is a bracing slab of industrially-oriented hardcore, and this band should give it full, brutal expression in a live setting (this is the only show they'll be playing in 2014).

Speaking of Mutilation Rites, they've been added as openers for the previously-discussed Black Breath show happening at Saint Vitus on December 14. Also on that bill is White Widows Pact and Blackest. Tic...


Mike Will Made It preps new mixtape Ransom for December release
Nov 26, 2014 10:35am | Fact Magazine

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since Atlanta producer Mike Will Made It‘s last mixtape.

#MikeWiLLBeenTriLL emerged just before Christmas last year and since then the superproducer has been hard at work building his Ear Drummers empire, snapping up iLoveMakonnen and having a hand in one of the year’s biggest rap anthems – Rae Sremmurd’s ‘No Flex Zone’.

Now he’s set to debut a set of entirely new material – the mixtape is called Ransom (you can see the artwork above) and he’s just announced (via Instagram) that it’s set to drop on December 15. There’s no tracklist yet but we’re sure some familiar voices (Miley? Gucci? Makonnen?) will be gracing Will’s unmistakable filtered backdrops.


Q&A: Father/Daughter Records
Nov 26, 2014 10:32am | CMJ


Based in San Francisco, Father/Daughter Records has been a solid indie imprint for four-plus years now, offering up albums and singles from brand new, melodic indie rock like Spirit Kid, Bent Shapes, Pure Bathing Culture, Happy Diving and more. But recently, founder Jessi Frick had a flashback moment to her kid days of being an avid pen pal and zine publisher. She got to thinking about how to bring that excitement of friends discovering music together via actually touching the stuff back into her, literally, mom & pop operation. And up came the “Keep In Touch” flexi disc series. You pay a one-time subscription fee, and each month you get a postcard/flexi with an exclusive track and some cool artwork (each one limited to 450 copies). The first run starts in January, and will feature bands like the So So Glos, Big Ups, Ava Luna, Tops, Girlpool and more. We rang up Frick to get her to open up about this musical pen pal plan.


Okay, so a basic history of the label.
Father/Daughter started about four years ago. It was me and my dad that started it, hence the name. My parents had me when they were really young, so they were still cool and into music and whatever when I had this idea to start a label, so we decided to all start it. Now, my husbands a part of it, my stepmoms a part of it, my moms a part, everyone has a little hand in it. 2015 we’ll be working on our 25th release. Basically weve been a kind of a one-off for ba...

James Blake remixes Gorillazs Feel Good Inc. listen
Nov 26, 2014 10:19am | Cosequence Of Sound

James Blake may have a new album on the way, but that doesn’t mean he’s done away with his Harmonomix alter ego. Under that moniker, the UK crooner has remixed the likes of Kendrick Lamar (M.A.A.d City), OutKast (“International Players Anthem”), and Destiny’s Child (“Bills Bills Bills”). This week, Blake tackles another classic in Gorillaz 2005 Grammy-winning hit, “Feel Good Inc.”. Peppered with additional percussive oomph and synth-y spark, the Demon Days original is flipped into a frenetic and feverish jam. Listen in below.

Here’s the original for full comparison:

As FACT notes, the “Feel Good Inc.” remix surfaced during a FABRICLIVE X Hit & Run Mix by Rich Reason and is said to be “from back in the day.”

In related news, Blake recently announced a North American tour, whose dates can be found here.

Listen To The First Single From Chance The Rapper & The Social Experiments Upcoming Album, Surf
Nov 26, 2014 10:15am | CMJ


Though Chance The Rapper might be the most recognizable name in the Social Experiment, its trumpet player Nico Segal (aka Donnie Trumpet) is the ringleader behind the group’s debut album. Along with Nate Fox and Peter Cottontale, Chance and Segal are set to drop Surf before the year’s end. Sunday Candy is the album’s first official single, and it’s a testament to the members’ ability to work their different aesthetics into one cohesive, slightly offbeat track. The song borrows elements of gospel and Chicago bop, with an optimistic hook from singer Jamila Woods and big, brassy flourishes. Then there’s Chance, smirking through lines like, “Pan-fried, sun-dried, South Side and beat the devil by a landslide.” Stream and download the track below.

SD Circles
Nov 26, 2014 10:12am | StereoGum

Chief Keef associate SD teamed up with Danny Brown on a song last year, and Brown tweeted a link to another great SD track this morning. “Circles,” from SD’s full-length debut Truly Blessed, puts him in a tradition from Biz Markie to 50 Cent to ILoveMakonnen: guys who have an innate sense of melody even though they can’t really sing. (Lest we forget, SD’s pal Keef has a similar gift.) In SD’s case, that means melodiously intoning violent threats, Dej Loaf-style, over forebodingly ornate production at a molasses crawl. It’s an absolute monster, so listen below.
