DMZ returns to Brixton this July for 10th birthday bash
Apr 18, 2015 8:57am | Fact Magazine

Ten years of meditating on bass weight.

Yesterday, DMZ co-founder Mala let out via Twitter that the original crew – Sgt. Pokes, Coki, Loefah and himself – would return to their spiritual home in Brixton for a July bash in celebration of their tenth birthday.

No details as to where in Brixton the party will go down yet. DMZ’s original homes at Third Base and then Mass in St. Matthew’s Church are now closed.

While you wait for more details, including the line up, listen back to Mala and Loefah back to back in 2006 at FWD>>.

Watch The Series Premiere Of Diplos Animated TV Show Major Lazer
Apr 18, 2015 8:10am | StereoGum
Diplo's Major Lazer animated series has been in the works for a long time -- they were obviously fixated on '80s cartoons since the release of their first album back in 2009 -- and it finally premiered on FXX's Animation Domination block on Thursday night. They also debuted a new song, "Night Riders," in … More »

Frantic Comes With the Territory: Friday the 13th composer Harry Manfredini talks horror, synths and jazz
Apr 18, 2015 7:16am | Fact Magazine

One day, at the dawn of the 1980s, Harry Manfredini sat down in the front room of his Bergen County home off Route 4 and started to compose the score to Friday the 13th Part 2.

He didnt have long maybe three weeks but he had a secret weapon by his side and it said Korg on the box. This would be his second contribution to one of the best-known and longest-running horror film sagas of all time and only his tenth feature as principal composer.

He would go on to write the music for the next five blood-soaked visits to Camp Crystal Lake, take a break when Jason took Manhattan in 1989, and return for parts 9 and 10. In the meantime, Manfredini added his distinctive blend of jazz-inflected rhythms and post-Schoenberg sonorities to films from the House, Wishmaster, The Hills Have Eyes, and Swamp Thing series. Now in his early 70s, Manfredini lives in California, with over 140 films to his name and another 10 in the pipeline.

“He said to me, I am going to make the scariest film ever, called Friday the 13th, and you are going to score it.”
Harry Manfredini

Born in Chicago at the tail end of World War 2, Manfredini developed a love of music early on from the classic Hollywood films he would see at home on television. He studied at DePaul University in his hometown before pursuing a master’s at Western Illinois, and finally mo...


Sci-fi techno, lo-fi dub and Japanese minimal: The weeks best vinyl releases
Apr 18, 2015 6:28am | Fact Magazine

Few people are onto great records as quickly as a great record store.

After years spent discovering gems in Phonicas end of year lists, it made sense to give them a regular space on FACT. Every Saturday, staff from the Soho institution pick out the five vinyl records you should grab this week.



THE WHITE MAN & THE ARAB
Hashashin EP
(The White Man & The Arab)

Better known as deep house don BLM and Phonica staffer Soho, The White Man & The Arab have been delivering their deep, hardware-driven cuts since 2013. This is their third record, and probably their lushest to date – Vanished is filled with cosmic flourishes while the dubby Hashashin and woozy The Tribe are both well primed for more discerning dancefloors.

Audio / Buy here



DARTIIX
Flying One Hand 2×12″
(op.disc)

Japanese producer Fumiya Tanaka will be known to most for his recent releases on Perlon, and his Dartriix collaboration with Yoshihiro Hanno offers him another place to explore his individual take on minimal techno. Its been five years since they last teamed up, but Flying One Hand sounds fresher than ever, as they use their jazz-funk structures to tease out a rich variety of sonics.

What's going on Saturday? (Record Store Day, Doldrums, Juan Maclean, Kelela, Prurient, The Album Leaf, more)
Apr 17, 2015 11:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Doldrums at Bowery Ballroom in 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

RSD at Rough Trade last year (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Don't forget the L Train is not running between 8th Ave and Bedford Ave this weekend, so plan accordingly. You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Record Store Day
It's maybe gotten a little out of hand (a lot out of hand) with all the exclusive releases but any day that encourage people to go buy records in actual record stores is okay by us. Expect lines and for the hot-ticket items to go quick, so get there early. Or you can just go and see some live in-store performances, or drink some free beer. Check out our guide to events for more info.

Dresden Dolls, Buzzcocks (signing), Kim Gordon (book signing), Lord Raja, Special Guests, Saun & Starr, Howlin' Rain, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires @ Rough Trade
Rough Trade has the most going on Saturday. Having either Record Store Day or Dresden Dolls perform for free would be enough to pack the place. Today you get both, plus Kim Gordon and Buzzcocks stopping by to sign stuff, and more performances. All free. The records, you gotta pay for.

Doldrums, Moon King, Malory @ Baby's All Right
Airick Woodhead's new album as Doldrums is both poppier and dancier than anything he's done before, while remaining resolutely of odd...


The official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is here watch
Apr 17, 2015 6:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Following a leak earlier this week, Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics have released the official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Check it out below.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 26th, 2016. The film stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White.

Those worried about the darker elements of 2013’s Man of Steel should keep on shivering. The atmosphere is bleak in this trailer as our two titular heroes are hidden in the shadows and paired with some not-so-sunny visuals. “False god” is scrawled across a statue of Superman while Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne broods at his suit in a chilly room. By the end, the two are staring eachother down in the rain with Batman wondering if Clark Kent truly bleeds. Needless to say, the film appears to have earned its vs. title.

The trailer was due to premiere next Monday as part of a special IMAX event, but a bootleg appeared online on Thursday. As was the case for the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer last fall, the leak forced the studio to jump the official release date. Still, Snyder promises the IMAX event will still be worth it for fans:

Father John Misty shares acoustic version of I Love You, Honeybear listen
Apr 17, 2015 5:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but you wouldn’t know it by the looks of Father John Mistys limited-edition Record Store Day release. The colored-vinyl 7-inch is cut in the shape of a heart and comes with two lovely, previously unreleased tracks: “I Loved You, Honeybee”, an acoustic version of his “I Love You, Honeybear” single, and a B-side titled “Never Been a Woman”. To hype the release, Sub Pop has shared “I Loved You, Honeybee”, and you can check it out below.

The original version of “I Love You, Honeybear” appears on Father John Misty’s excellent new album of the same name.

Alice Glass responds to Ethan Kaths Crystal Castles comments, teases new music
Apr 17, 2015 4:25pm | Fact Magazine

The singer responds to her former bandmember’s comments.

Yesterday Crystal Castles returned with new music. This was a surprise for many who assumed the project was over since the duo of Alice Glass and Ethan Kath split last year.

When Kath posted his new song ‘Frail’ it came with a note underplaying Glass’s role in the project, and mentioning how she took credit for lyrics that he wrote. The post was deleted shortly after, but Glass has now responded to the comments on Twitter with a very different take.

On a more positive note, she followed her comments with a promise that new music is on the way.

Liturgy at Saint Vitus - 4/15/15

Liturgy brought their tour in support of their new album, The Ark Work, to their hometown of Brooklyn for a sold-out show at Saint Vitus on Wednesday (4/15). The new album abandons the harsh vocal style of their previous material and is closer to art rock than anything you'd call "metal," but it does retain some of their more aggressive elements like drummer Greg Fox's punishing blastbeats. They're focusing mostly on the new stuff for this tour but including a couple from its predecessor, 2011's Aesthetica, too.

Opening was another band who walk the line between metal and non-metal, Psalm Zero, and the new-music ensemble Mivos Quartet. Pictures of all three bands are in this post and continue below...
