Leon Vynehall rebuilds Midnight on Rainbow Road for the dancefloor
Nov 24, 2015 5:28am | Fact Magazine

Leon Vynehall’s next release brings a low-lit drifter to the dancefloor.

‘Midnight on Rainbow Road’ was released as part of Rush Hour’s second Musik For Autobahns compilation this September, with the Brighton producer tapping into a downbeat Balearic mood just the thing for a long, late night drive.

Vynehall has now unveiled new version of the track “reconstructed for the dancefloor” and set for release through Rush Hour. You can pre-order a copy already.

Hear a snippet of the reconstructed tune via Rush Hour’s Facebook and sink into the cushion-soft original beneath. Catch up with Vynehall’s FACT mix for more.

Kranky artist Loscil creates ambient music app that sounds different every time
Nov 24, 2015 4:45am | Fact Magazine

Vancouver’s Loscil, aka Scott Morgan, drummer for Destroyer, has released his new EP as an interactive smartphone app.

Adrift features four “endless” tracks which “use structured random selection to continuously play with no beginning or end.” Each track, named after a ghost ship, is made from a combination of acoustic and electronic elements which Morgan recorded and produced so that the program randomly weaves them together on the fly. The result is an EP that sounds different each time you play it.

Adrift also features Elisa Thorn on harp, Kelly Wyse on piano and Mark Bridges on cello, and it arrived on iOS yesterday check out the trailer below. The EP is Morgan’s second of the year, following February’s for Greta. [via RA]

Spooky and Capo Lee take no prisoners on Welcome to Clartsville
Nov 24, 2015 4:26am | Fact Magazine

The man with the fastest fingers in grime teams up with rising MC Capo Lee.

Capo has been around for a while, but he’s enjoyed a breakthrough 2015 with a regular presence on radio (both spitting on sets and through single ‘Liff’.) He’s also formed an alliance of sorts with DJ/producer Spooky, teaming up on several tracks and sets.

Welcome to Clartsville sees the pair team up over six tracks. Some are new, some (such as ‘666 God’) have been on radio rotation for a while, but the whole thing is monstrous. Stream it below, and download it here.

Prins Thomas returns with double EP Toransu on Full Pupp
Nov 24, 2015 4:19am | Fact Magazine

Prins Thomas has lined up a double EP to follow his ace Paradise Goulash triple-disc mix from last month.

Toransu comprises a few new tracks with reworkings from his III album and a remix of ‘Stockholm Express’ by Norwegian producer Chmmr, as RA reports, and it marks the 50th release on Prins Thomas’ Full Pupp label, which turned 10 last year with a bumper 32-track compilation.

FACT’s Ben Murphy recently sat down with the always-entertaining Oslo DJ for some pointers on “kicking against the pricks” and the art of the DJ.

Ringo Starr is auctioning copy #0000001 of The White Album
Nov 24, 2015 4:08am | Fact Magazine

The Beatles drummer is selling off the ultimate trophy records for fans of the band.

Ringo Starr is actually selling over 1,300 items on Julien’s, the Beverly Hills auction house that specialises in celebrity tat. In amongst Starr’s jewellery, art and more is his original UK pressing of The Beatles’ classic White Album, numbered 0000001.

According to Dangerous Minds, its widely accepted that copies one to four of the record are in the possession of Beatles members, but it was also assumed that 0000001 belongs to John Lennon (a view echoed by Paul McCartney, who once said that Lennon shouted loudest for it.) Psyche! Turns out Ringo had it all along, and apparently had it stowed away in a London bank vault for over 35 years.

Bidding starts at $20,000, but will presumably rise to much higher. Proceeds from the auction will go to the Lotus Foundation, which Starr and his wife Barbara Bach founded to fund, support, participate in and promote charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare in diverse areas.

Chance your luck over at Julien’s. [via The Vinyl Factory]

Max D announces third album Boost hear Rhythm Automator
Nov 24, 2015 3:48am | Fact Magazine

The Future Times boss unveils a twisted new track.

Max D is behind some of the most singular house records of recent years, refining his groggy, sun-dappled approach to the ‘floor on 2013’s excellent House of Woo (as Maxmillion Dunbar) and this year teaming up with Baltimore sampler Co La for a freaky album on PAN.

In February he’ll be sticking with the more concise Max D moniker for his third solo full-length, titled Boost, which he describes as “seven songs acting on instinct”. Mixed in Amsterdam with Jordan Czamanski, one half of Juju & Jordash, the album is due out in February on vinyl and digital, led by the decidedly wonky ‘Rhythm Automator’, which you can stream below.

Catch up with Max D’s standout FACT mix and go record shopping with the Future Times boss on FACT TV.

Underworld announce new album Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future
Nov 24, 2015 3:44am | Fact Magazine

Dance survivors Underworld will release their ninth album, Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future, on March 18.

So what’s in this shining future? Well, according to a press release it’s “the elegiac swoop of strings as they stretching out across off-world electronics; a demented lupine howl that curls itself into an unshakeable earworm; celestial techno and South American acoustics; voices that warp into harmonic riffs; found lyrics that form fine-tuned monolgues.” Quite.

Underworld will also play a limited number of European shows in March. Stream the first taste of Barbara Barbara below.

The Naturals - Hive
Nov 24, 2015 1:40am | Drowned In Sound
Having been Bristol's best kept secret for over a decade, now seems as good a time as any for The Naturals to reveal themselves to the rest of the world. From their humble beginnings as shoegaze-tinged experimentalists to the frankly uncategorisable beast that stands before us today, The Naturals story has been one of arduous toil and industrious progression. Indeed, were anyone to try and pigeonhole this four-piece into any conscripted genre they'd fail miserably. Which is testament to the ambition and dedication of a band never afraid to push boundaries to their absolute limit and leap over the fences if necessary.

Although staples of the Howling Owl collective that's spawned the likes of Spectres, Velcro Hooks and Oliver Wilde, Hive, its creators have more in common with the beat-heavy experimentation associated with Bristol's underground (trip)hip-hop scene of the 1990s. Not necessarily in the most obvious musical sense. But certainly from the perspective that nothing is beyond the realms of possibility. So it's no surprise that reference points across Hive's eight discordant pieces range from the Dystopian sonic purges of Einsturzende Neubauten through to Channel One inspired dub sounds via electronic elements of a Dusseldorf persuasion and math rock signatures from as far afield as Washington DC.

Adele performs Water Under the Bridge on Fallon watch
Nov 24, 2015 12:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Over the weekend, Adele proved it is possible to sound great on Saturday Night Live without having to lip sync. The global pop star stuck around the Big Apple on Monday for another performance behind 25, this time appearing on The Tonight Show Starring. She turned in a similarly first-class performance, showing off her regal yet soul stirring vocals on an outstanding rendition of “Water Under the Bridge”.

Additionally, Adele played a game called “Box of Lies” and sat down for a brief interview with Jimmy Fallon. Catch the replay below.

25, which came out last Friday, sold over 2.3 million copies in its first three days of release, making it the fast-selling album in music history.

What's going on Tuesday? (Stevie Wonder, George Clinton, My Morning Jacket, Mayhem & Watain, Fishbone and more)

My Morning Jacket

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

My Morning Jacket, Woods @ Beacon Theater
My Morning Jacket returned this year with their very solid seventh album, The Waterfall. They always shine as a live band too, and tonight begins their four-night run at The Beacon in support of it. Each night has a different (and also good) opener. Tonight it's folk rockers Woods.

Stevie Wonder @ Madison Square Garden
Stevie Wonder has been on tour playing his classic 1976 double album Songs in the Key of Life, and he brings that tour back to NYC tonight.

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ B.B. King's
It's a tough night for fans of classic funk/soul/etc though. The equally legendary George Clinton hits BB King's.

Mayhem, Watain, Rotting Christ @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The double bill of Mayhem and Watain was already a must-see for black metal fans the first time it happened this year, so thankfully they're doing it all over again. This show's in a more intimate venue than last time too.

Fishbone, Murphy's Law @ House of Independents (Asbury Park)

M for Montreal

Pure insanity. This is how you end a festival. Duchess Says singer Annie-Claude is a bit like a gremlin, spreading gleeful mayhem wherever she goes. Saturday night, headlining the BrooklynVegan M for Montreal showcase and post-Grimes fesival closing party at Club Soda, she and Duchess Says dialed it up to the max and the audience were her willing playthings. She walked atop them, parted them like the red sea, had them all sit down on the floor as she tormented fans individually, invited them up on stage for a mid-set dance party (and onstage crowd-surfing!) and generally had us wondering "what's next?" the whole show. I have seen Duchess Says many times over the last seven years and this was by far the most bonkers, awesome and flat-out fun show of theirs I've witnessed.

While Annie Claude is the focal point, the band's music -- warped synthpunk -- is what helps power things. Popular in their hometown, Duchess Says are virtual...

Killer Mike goes to lunch with Bernie Sanders, introduces him at presidential rally
Nov 23, 2015 9:10pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Last week, Killer Mike gave a lecture on racism and civil rights down at Florida State University. Tonight, the outspoken Run The Jewels MC got behind the podium once again, this time for a much bigger event: a rally for presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.

Killer Mike delivered the opening speech at the political function, which took place at the rapper’s hometown of Atlanta. His words were thoughtful and impassioned — as they usually are — as he referenced the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., warned that the US oughtn’t return to the Reagan years, and even quoted his own 2012 song “Untitled”.

“In my heart of hearts, I truly believe that Senator Bernie Sanders is the right man to lead this country,” Killer Mike told the crowd. “He’s trying to talk truth throughout this country and, in fact, throughout the world — trying to bring people together.”

Watch footage of his speech below.

Prior to the rally, Killer Mike and Sanders hung out and dined at local soul food joint Busy Bee. Check out some photos below.

Pusha Ts new album Darkest Before Dawn due out December 18th
Nov 23, 2015 8:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Pusha T has been teasing a new album all month, dropping stellar new single “Untouchable” and holding a special listening party during the Adidas event celebrating his forthcoming “EQT” sneakers. There will, indeed, be a Pusha LP due out by year’s end, but it’s not the one we were expecting.

According to Noisey, an LP titled Darkest Before Dawn is due out on December 18th. Meanwhile, King Push, aka the full-length we all thought was on the way, is slated to hit shelves in the spring.

Darkest Before Dawn will reportedly feature production from Kanye West, Puff Daddy, Timbaland, Q-Tip, and Baauer, among others. The album serves as the official follow-up to Pusha’s impressive My Name Is My Name, released back in 2013.

Pusha, the new President of G.O.O.D. Music, spoke to Noisey about his decision to release two separate albums:

“Ive been recording so muchI didnt want to break up that body of work, I feel like I had the producers doing things that they werent usually known for, a little out of their wheelhouse. I wanted to give the fans that body of work. Thats the music I love, and thats the music that my fans love from me. Instead of having those moments throughout King Push, lets just separate the game.”

Below, revisit the video for “Untouchable”:
