Against the Clock: Brassica
Oct 23, 2014 12:48pm | Fact Magazine

Against the Clock is a series on FACT TV where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. You can watch all the past episodes here.

Next up for the challenge: London synth artist Brassica (aka Michael Anthony Wright), who has spent the last few years exploring left-field electronics for the likes of Dissident and Civil Music.

On November 10, he’ll release his debut album, Man is Deaf, via Civil Music (pre-order it here). Until then, see what he comes up with 10 minutes and a handful of gear that includes a discontinued Nord modular synth.

Watch Underworlds 20th Anniversary Mini-Documentary On Dubnobasswithmyheadman
Oct 23, 2014 12:45pm | StereoGum

British electronic wizards Underworld released their seminal record Dubnobasswithmyheadman in 1994, and in celebration of the album’s 20th anniversary, Rick Smith and Karl Hyde participated in a documentary about its creation. The two-part documentary includes performance footage and testimonial interviews, giving some insight into the process of creating Dubnobasswithmyheadman as well as an account of how Underworld translated the album to a live setting. Smith commented that Underworld prepared every bit of technology in advance to make sure it performed to its fullest capability, and that the group did not rehearse before taking the record to the stage. “It was all about the pressure of the moment, and the failing, and the recovery,” he said. Watch below.


CMJ: Ryn Weaver @ Bowery Ballroom, 10/22/14
Oct 23, 2014 12:40pm | StereoGum

Chances are, if you read this site or anything about music on the internet, you heard about Ryn Weaver this summer. Back in June, Weaver appeared, seemingly apropos of nothing, on SoundCloud with “OctaHate,” a song that garnered considerable buzz because A) it’s a really great, infectious song, and B) the murderer’s row of people involved. Charli XCX co-wrote, Benny Blanco and Passion Pit mastermind Michael Angelakos and Cashmere Cat produced. And then Jessie Ware and Hayley Williams and Tom Krell of How To Dress Well all tweeted it. The whole thing made Weaver ascendant overnight, and also yielded criticism from writers and readers alike, with people assuming Weaver was nothing more than an industry creation, or a rich kid with connections. (It’s kind of amazing how worked up people still get about the former in 2014.) Weaver herself took to the Stereogum comments section to set it a bit straight, and later spoke to Chris for an Artist To Watch feature, in which they talked about how, while the arrival of Ryn Weaver was sudden and definite, she’d been kicking around and working on material under her real name, Aryn Wuthrich, and briefly as FemFemFem first.


U2 May Have Scrapped A Danger Mouse-Produced Album
Oct 23, 2014 12:39pm | StereoGum

Early in the year, we saw reports that U2 were teaming up with producer Danger Mouse for a full album, one that was expected in April. They teamed up for the 2013 soundtrack song “Ordinary Love” and the free-giveaway single “Invisible.” And then the album never came out. When U2 did pull off their surprise release of Songs Of Innocence a few months later, Danger Mouse was in the credits a lot, but he was far from the sole producer, and those two previously released songs weren’t on the album. And based on what the band and their collaborators told Rolling Stone in a new profile, the band may have scrapped an entire Danger Mouse-produced album, one that sure seems like it was far along the way to completion.


Moodymann, Jeff Mills and Borderland added to Torinos Movement Festival
Oct 23, 2014 12:39pm | Fact Magazine

Torino’s edition of the legendary Movement Festival is only a few days away, but they’re still confirming new additions to the lineup.

This week they’ve added a handful of bona-fide legends – Moodymann, Rick Wilhite, Jeff Mills and Juan Atkins and Moritz von Oswald‘s Borderland project. If you’re as bonkers about classic house and techno as we are, you’ll know what a big deal it is to have all these guys playing on the same line-up.

It’s not as if Movement needed it either, there’s already a stonking selection of artists, from Skream and Steffi to Karrenn and Ellen Allien (who incidentally just told FACT about her favorite record).

You can take a peep at the flyer below, and make sure you head here for tickets.

CHVRCHES Under The Tide Video
Oct 23, 2014 11:54am | StereoGum

CHVRCHES’ debut album, The Bones Of What You Believe, came out more than a year ago, but presumably due to their inclusion on the newly reimagined Drive soundtrack, as well as the new Hunger Games soundtrack, the Scottish electro-pop trio is once again promoting The Bones Of What You Believe via a new video. Unlike the majority of CHRVCHES songs, “Under The Tide” has Martin Doherty singing lead vocals. The visuals combine anime cartoons with a TRON-like geometric, computer-generated landscape. The video is also interspersed with flashing images of the band, in particular Martin who is singing, to produce a highly stimulating aesthetic that mirrors the boisterous synthesizers in the track. Watch.

The construction zone setting of the "Yale's Life" video was partially shot at new Bushwick venue Alphaville (140 Wilson off the Jefferson L stop), which is co-owned by Beverly bassist/producer Scott Rosenthal. (285 Kent's John Rambo is also involved) The venue (which will be a restaurant too) opens to the public tonight (10/23) :

We're not 100% done with this wondrous hunk of wood and brick and cement, but close enough.

This Thursday evening we are ...

Panache: Reigning Sound, White Fence, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Shonen Knife @ Knitting Factory: October 22, 2014
Oct 23, 2014 11:46am | CMJ

Aussie psychedelics King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard were the tongue-twisting crowd favorite at Brooklyn’s the Knitting Factory last night, but their competition was solid: Reigning Sound brought the garage nostalgia, White Fence got raw and moody and Shonen Knife kicked out the jams.

Herbie Hancock Reveals Crack Addiction In New Memoir
Oct 23, 2014 11:41am | StereoGum

Among the great jazz musicians who came to prominence in the ’60s, Herbie Hancock always seemed to be the most together. He easily adapted to fusion and funk and synthpop and Grammy-awarded singer-songwriter fare while his peers either died or got left behind. So it’s a little surprising to learn that Hancock spent a few years fighting a crack addiction. Today, Hancock has published a new memoir called Herbie Hancock: Possibilities. Part of the book deals with Hancock’s battle with the drug, a subject that I don’t think he’s ever discussed in detail before. Right now, Vulture has an excerpt about the first time Hancock tried crack. Here’s a quick taste:

CHVRCHES mix psychedelics and anime in video for Under The Tide watch
Oct 23, 2014 11:33am | Cosequence Of Sound

As noted earlier this week, CHVRCHES have contributed a new song, “Get Away”, to a reworked soundtrack of the Ryan Gosling film Drive. Today, the Glaswegian trio lend their brand of synthpop to another form of cinema as they unveil a video for “Under The Tide”, from their excellent debut album, The Bones of What You Believe.

Here, director Sing J. Lee pairs inspired performance shots from band member Martin Doherty with anime footage, including clips of a giant spaceship comprised entirely of laser lights and the band itself as made from tiny, twinkling stars. It doesn’t have quite the same goofy, feel-good vibe of Pharrell’s recent foray into anime, but the mix of psychedelic visuals and romantic subplot enhance this already surging ballad. Plus, one character totally shoots balls of lasers and it’s super awesome.

Watch it below.

STAFF PICKS: Missing Organs finds the humanity in instrumental drone on Undiscovered
Oct 23, 2014 11:27am | Chart Attack

Undiscovered, a new record of passionate drone movements from Missing Organs, shouldn't be so unpretentious. Tristan Bath, a music writer based in London who records under the name Missing Organs, tells me via email that after interviewing electronic hellion Ben Frost, he was provoked into only making music that meant something. This could have easily been a toxin. But the unnecessary grandeur of some of Undiscovered's moments is easily overshadowed by Bath's honest concerns: human stuff, especially what we put out of our minds.

The genuflections are there. Faust, Tim Hecker's Ravedeath, 1972 and the Kranky roster all join Undiscovered's solemn march from room to room of an abandoned, cavernous orchestra. But the album best distances itself from these artists - and even its own songs - when there's a mixture of analogue and digital.

Undiscovered by MISSING ORGANS

Second track "Absence of Evidence," the album's most baldly aggressive, lives in the red through its waves of yawning distortion as well as the anxious strings. "Rotting Apricot" becomes a kind of ashram from its psychedelic guitar line, its phaser giving it the glow of astral projection. And "Evidence of Absence," well, those glockenspiels make me feel like I'm back inside Vangelis's soundtrack to Blade Runner. Which is always welcome.

Referentiality isn't the guiding ...

Ryn Weaver, Circa Waves, Public Access TV @ Bowery Ballroom: October 22, 2014
Oct 23, 2014 11:23am | CMJ

Though you might not immediately pair Circa Waves’ sharp indie rock with Public Access TV’s slap-happy surf slog and all that with Ryn Weaver’s sweet bedroom R&B, all three acts made for a not-at-all-surprising great pairing at Bowery Ballroom last night.
