Hear Demdike Stares gruesome Testpressing#006 in full
Jul 31, 2014 12:10pm | Fact Magazine

Industrial duo Demdike Stare are back with the sixth installment of their ongoing Testpressing series.

Following the neo-grime shakes of their last drop, this new 12″ finds the lads getting doomed and dirty – A side ’40 Years Under The Cosh’ (which was debuted on the first FACT at BBOX radio show a few weeks back), is a slack-jawed dancefloor weapon, with choppy rhythms and razor-sharp synths primed sloppy post-1am moments. The flip, however, is where it really gets going – a noise-drenched slow jam that’s packed with enough lo-lite atmosphere that you’ll be searching for your box of matches and candles with eyes like fucking saucers.

Testpressing#006 is out now via Modern Love, and you can listen to the whole thing below.

HOMESHAKE Announces Debut LP, In The Shower, Shares Cash Is Money
Jul 31, 2014 12:10pm | CMJ

You might know Peter Sagar from his time spent playing live with Mac DeMarco, or because we featured him on Letters From Bandcamp, or because he was at CMJ Music Marathon last year. But now the guy behind HOMESHAKE is finally putting out his debut solo album, In The Shower.

The album’s first single, Cash Is Money, pairs Sagar’s affected, sighing vocals with a soapy bassline, softly percussive shakers and sporadic keyboard clatters. In The Shower is out this fall via Sinderlyn. Listen to Cash Is Money and check out the album tracklist below.

Tracklist For In The Shower:
01. She Can’t Leave Me Here Alone Tonight
02. Chowder

Pussy Riot member suing Russian government in European court of human rights
Jul 31, 2014 12:06pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Pussy Riot's Nadya and Maria in NYC in January (more by Gretchen Robinette)

Pussy Riot members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina are suing the Russian government in the European Court of Human Rights over their 2012 arrest and imprisonment:

Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, who were given an amnesty in December after serving 21 months in prison and pre-trial confinement, are demanding 120,000 (£71,000) each in compensation, plus 10,000 in court fees. They argue that the investigation and prosecution violated their rights and amounted to torture.

"They didn't get fair trial here in Russia so they want to get it finally in the European court of human rights," said Pavel Chikov, the head of the human rights legal group Agora, which is representing the two women.

"Plus they want this case to set a precedent that Russians can speak publicly on sensitive political issues, even if this speech is not supported by majority. This is a case about freedom of expression and fair trial first of all." - [The Guardian]

Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova were released in December as part of a Russian amnesty.

Hieroglyphic Being fires back at coked-up haters with The Worst DJ Ever cassette
Jul 31, 2014 12:06pm | Fact Magazine

The Worst DJ Ever cassette" width="685" height="395" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-224510" />

Jamal Moss, tongue-in-cheek as ever.

In April, Hieroglyphic Being played a three-hour, three-deck set at Faktion X in a private Manchester warehouse, dropping everything from fusion jazz to industrial, classic techno to raucous Chicago house, and even The Smiths.

Unfortunately, the DJ’s predictably-eclectic set was met with disdain by “a contingent of beaked-up kids couldn’t handle his cosmicness,” who proceeded to use their cell phones to show him messages reading “you are the worst DJ ever.”

Those messages inspired the subtitle of his Reel Torque Volume 5 release, a two-tape recording of the set that will be released as an individually-numbered edition of 100. You can grab the tape at Boomkat.

Earlier this year, Moss adopted the alias IBM for the Eat My Fuck, an LP complete with equally obscene titles. He’s also remixed Roedelius and Aïsha Devi as Hieroglyphic Being. [via RA]

Lil Silva Dont You Love Feat. BANKS
Jul 31, 2014 11:40am | CMJ

Lil Silva’s upcoming EP, Mabel, features two tracks with the rapidly rising U.K. singer BANKS. Today, one of those collaborations, Don’t You Love, made its way onto the internet. While the EP’s title track showed off Lil Silva’s fractured croon and First Mark was a scattered instrumental, Don’t You Love gives us a taste of Lil Silva in a duet, his soulful inflections playing off BANKS’ almost weightless vox. Listen below and check out the tracklist for Mabel after that.

Tracklist For Mabel:
01. First Mark
02. Kimmy
03. Dont You Love (feat. BANKS)
04. Mabel
05. Right For You (feat. BANKS)

Philip Selway Coming Up For Air Video
Jul 31, 2014 11:34am | StereoGum

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway is getting ready to release Weatherhouse, his second album as a solo singer-songwriter, and lead single “Coming Up For Air” is a fine piece of way-out psych-pop that sounds something like a song his band might’ve recorded during that stretch between The Bends and OK Computer. Selway’s gleaming dome never shows up in the song’s new NYSU-directed video. Instead, it’s a loosely connected series of trippy, ominous, vaguely dystopic images, and it shows a lingering fascination with optical illusions. Watch it below.


Andrew Weatherall heads up his own festival at Frances Carcassonne Castle
Jul 31, 2014 11:33am | Fact Magazine

It would be fair to say, at this point, that Andrew Weatherall has indeed been there and done that.

As a member of Two Lone Swordsman and Sabres of Paradise, he was crucial part of the early techno and electronica scene, and under his own name he produced some of the most important albums of the last few decades – Primal Scream’s critically revered Screamadelica being the most obvious.

It stands to reason that the noted musical explorer should have his own festival, and the Andrew Weatherall Festival is returning to France’s Caracassonne Castle for its second year. A two day affair starting on Friday September 26, the festival is located in the gorgeous South of France, and not only boasts a genre-bending soundtrack, but also food cooked by Michelin star chef Jerome Ryon and wine selected by sommelier Olivier Zavattin. It’s all a far cry from the muddy British gatherings we’re all used to.

Musically, Weatherall has picked an unsurprisingly eclectic selection of acts – from Ennio Morricone-influenced French band The Liminanas and Bucharest-based Turkish music obsessives Khidja to David Cronenberg fetishist Scott Fraser and The Asphodells. Weatherall will also be performing himself, as Andrew Weatheralls Musics Not For Everyone, and that probably doesn’t need any introduction at all.

Brian Eno writes a letter condemning Israels ethnic cleansing of Gaza and Americas support
Jul 31, 2014 11:26am | Chart Attack

As the third week of Israel's latest siege of Gaza continues, its military has bombed the city's mosques, hospitals, schools and the city's sole power plant as part of a "pinpoint operation" ostensibly targeting Hamas operatives and weaponry. It has instead incurred massive civilian casualties which the UN believes constitute war crimes.

Yesterday David Byrne published an email on his website he had received from Brian Eno. The ambient music pioneer blasts Israel as well as the support it receives from the United States, which he says "is like sending money to the Klan":

"The America I know and like is compassionate, broadminded, creative, eclectic, tolerant and generous. You, my close American friends, symbolise those things for me. But which America is backing this horrible one-sided colonialist war? I can't work it out: I know you're not the only people like you, so how come all those voices aren't heard or registered? How come it isn't your spirit that most of the world now thinks of when it hears the word 'America'? How bad does it look when the one country which more than any other grounds its identity in notions of Liberty and Democracy then goes and puts its money exactly where its mouth isn't and supports a ragingly racist theocracy?"

He also describes what he saw on a trip to Jerusalem:

"I was in Israel last year with Mary. Her sister works for UN...

Watch: Radioheads Phil Selway shares video for Coming Up For Air
Jul 31, 2014 11:16am | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this week, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood debuted his latest composition “Skip Loop” in London. Now, another musician from the Radiohead camp has offered up new material from his own solo project. Drummer Phil Selway returns with the music video for “Coming Up For Air”, the lead single off his forthcoming album, Weatherhouse.

Drawing from the atmospheric nature of the song itself, the NYSU-directed clip is a fascinating and somewhat surreal visual experience. “Good videos can make you rethink the song that youve written,” Selway noted in a press release. “They also shine a light on what makes the track tick. NYSU have made a visually rich and intriguing piece for ‘Coming Up For Air’ which stands up in its own right, yet feels in tune with the track.

Watch it below:

Weatherhouse officially hits shelves on October 7th via Bella Union.

Weatherhouse Tracklist:
01. Coming up for Air
02. Around Again
03. Let It Go
04. Miles Away
05. Ghosts
06. It Will End in Tears
07. Dont Go Now
08. Drawn to the Light
09. Waiting for a Sign
10. Turning It Inside Out

man arrested on narcotics charges related to 2013 Electric Zoo death
Jul 31, 2014 11:07am | Brooklyn Vegan

You may remember that there were two drug-related deaths at last year's Electric Zoo Festival in New York, causing the final day to be canceled. Jeffrey Russ was one of the fatalities and now Federal prosecutors in Mahattan have brought charges agains the person they believe sold him the drugs. From the NY Times:

Patrick Morgan, who at 23 is the same age that Mr. Russ was when he died, was arrested on Wednesday in Buffalo on charges of narcotics distribution and narcotics conspiracy, after an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration that zeroed in on the group of friends involved in the alleged drug deal as recounted in the criminal complaint against Mr. Morgan. Both charges carry a maximum prison term of 20 years.

One of the friends, who was not identified in the complaint, cooperated with the D.E.A. special agent leading the investigation, Louis Schmidt. In March, the friend met with Mr. Morgan and discussed the drugs that Mr. Morgan allegedly sold the three, according to the complaint. After the meeting, the two exchanged text messages.

"Hey it was great to see you last week," the friend who was working with the authorities texted Mr. Morgan, the complaint states. "Glad we got to talk about Jeff a little it was bugging me. Just know that I no longer blame us for giving the molly to him because it was him that made the mistake of taking too much."

Morgan is currently out on a $100,000 signa...

Stream Willis Earl Beal Experiments In Time
Jul 31, 2014 11:03am | StereoGum

Willis Earl Beal spoke last month about why he decided to leave his old label, XL, and release his new album entirely by himself. That album, Experiments In Time, sounded more and more intriguing as singles like “Traveling Eyes” and “Until We Die” emerged. Hearing it now in full, the album sounds like something Beal would not have been able to explore while working with a major label. It plays like blown-out, lo-fi, ambient versions of blues and soul music. There’s a song on the album called “Monotony,” which almost feels like a prediction of how some people might react to this thing, but Experiments In Time feels like a record that will benefit from close and repeated listens. Stream it via Pitchfork now.
