Kelela announces Hallucinogen EP; watch the video for Arca-produced A Message
Mar 3, 2015 8:57am | Fact Magazine

Plus, the L.A.-based talent heads to Europe.

Even with a deluxe version of her breakthrough mixtape Cut 4 Me and an eagerly-anticipated debut album on the way, Kelela is not slowing down: the Fade To Mind singer-songwriter has announced Hallucinogen, a six-song EP that explores a cycle of love and sexuality, from “rejection and amputation” to “feral lust and longing” through to “the payoff.”

The EP is comprised of songs originally intended for her debut album, which is due this Fall. Heartbroken lead track ‘A Message’ kicks off the cycle with “rejection and amputation,” and was produced by man-of-the-moment Arca, with additional writing and production by Boots and Mocky Salome.

“I met Alejandro [Arca] on a boat in August of 2012,” Kelela says via press release. “We sought one another out across a dance floor and within 5 minutes agreed to meet each other as soon as possible to collaborate. I had one song released to my name and had just heard one of his mixes, but we knew we’d found something in one another.

“We spent the next three days, 14 hours a day talking about our artistic visions and how it intersected with our personal lives, making songs that reflected that while dancing around the room to let it all out. About 5 or 6 demos were ...



Definitive Bruce Lee biopic is in the works
Mar 3, 2015 8:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

The family of Bruce Lee has announced a new biopic about the legendary martial artist and actor. Lee’s daughter Shannon and her company Bruce Lee Entertainment have teamed with producers Lawrence Grey (Hope SpringsLast Vegas) and Janet Yang (The Joy Luck Club, The People vs. Larry Flynt) for what they say will be “a definitive biopic of the iconic Hollywood and Chinese star.”

The film will be the first biopic to involve Lee’s family. “There have been projects out there involving my father, but theyve lacked a complete understanding of his philosophies and artistry,” Shannon said in a statement. “They havent captured the essence of his beliefs in martial arts or storytelling. The only way to get audiences to understand the depth and uniqueness of my father is to generate our own material and find amazing, like-minded partners to work with.”

Lee, who died at the age of 32 in 1973 just days before the release of his iconic Enter the Dragon, is largely credited with inspiring Western interest in martial arts. He rose to international acclaim in films like Fist of Fury, Way of the Dragon, and Enter the Dragon, as well as his unfinished masterpiece Game of Death. The actor also originated the live-action role of Kato on The Green Hornet, and created the martial arts style and philoso...

My Morning Jacket are back with The Waterfall, their first album in four years, which will be released on May 4. The album was recorded at Panoramic House in Stinson Beach, CA, a hillside studio that overlooks the Pacific -- a location that proved inspirational, says frontman Jim James:

For me, every record has the spirit of where we made it. Stinson Beach was so psychedelic and focused. It was almost like we lived on our own little moon out there. It feels like you're up in the sky.
You can check out first single "Big Decisions" below.

Already scheduled for appearances at Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and other festivals, My Morning Jacket have now announced a full North American tour. Support along the way comes from Hiss Golden Messenger, Lizzo (who just opened for Sleater-Kinney), Lucius and others. All dates are listed below.

Sleater-Kinney brought their reunion tour to NYC's Terminal 5 twice, first on February 26 (check out our pics and review) and then again the following night (2/27). The setlists were mostly the same, but night two got two songs from 1996's Call the Doctor (night one didn't get any), plus "Little Babies" and the 11-minute "Let's Call It Love." Anybody go to both?

More pictures from night 2 (including opener Lizzo), the setlist and a video, below...

Chastity Belt playing BrooklynVegan-presented show at Rough Trade after Bowery Ballroom run w/ Courtney Barnett
Mar 3, 2015 8:30am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Seatle's Chastity Belt will be on tour with Courtney Barnett this spring, including three sold-out shows at NYC's Bowery Ballroom in May. You'll have one more chance to see them in NYC as BrooklynVegan is presenting a Chastity Belt headlining show at Rough Trade on May 22 (that's the day after the last Courtney Barnett show Bowery Ballroom). It's a late show (doors at 10:30 PM) with an opener TBA. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/6) at noon.

Chastity Belt's great new album, Time to Go Home, puts real snarl (and welcome humor) into jangly pop, and it will be out March 24 via Hardly Art. (Pre-orders are available.) Check out the video for the album's slow-burn title track below.

Kanye West and Skepta reportedly in the studio together
Mar 3, 2015 8:29am | Fact Magazine

It makes perfect sense.

After Skepta (and pretty much all of grime) got invited to flank Kanye West’s performance at the Brit Awards last week, the US-UK love-in looks set to continue in the studio.

Yesterday Kanye turned up at the Adidas Store on Carnaby Street in central London to give away a few pairs of his Yeezy Boost kicks, and revealed to fans that he’s been recording with Skepta during his whirlwind trip to the UK.

As RWD Mag reports, he also chatted to them about his new single ‘All Day’, which features his new pal Paul McCartney on acoustic guitar and was revealed in its studio version today.

Meanwhile Skepta has just unveiled his new single ‘Shutdown’, which samples Drake’s hilarious “truss mi daddi” Vine in a nod to the Toronto rapper cribbing from ‘That’s Not Me’ on his recent track with Lil Wayne. It’s a beautiful thing.

Modest Mouse Of Course We Know
Mar 3, 2015 7:40am | StereoGum
“Of Course We Know,” the latest single we’ve heard from Modest Mouse’s forthcoming album Strangers To Ourselves, is the band at its most epic. It’s a slow-burning psychedelic track with more than a bit of Ennio Morricone in it, and it might be the best of the album tracks we’ve yet heard. Strangers To Ourselves […]



Song : Purient : ILLWAIT4U
Mar 3, 2015 7:28am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Not much is to be found other than a Soundcloud of fantastic, dreamgazy songs from a recent discovery of ours from Melbourne, Australia going by the name of Purient. Out of the handful of songs to choose from, but we have singled our her latest output “I’LLWAIT4U” that mixes the gorgeous atmospherics of Warpaint and the ominous undertones vocally of Purity Ring. Her music would be the perfect backdrop for those moments of introspection when you are staring into the oblivion contemplating life. Listen below.


This is how to use Photoshop to avoid buying scratched secondhand records online
Mar 3, 2015 7:21am | Fact Magazine

This insider tip will change the way you buy records online.

Weve all been there  youve bought a record on Discogs or eBay with a VG+ condition rating, only to find it looks like its been cleaned with a belt sander and a fork. And although we know that life has surface noise, its frustrating when the record youve bought not only looks ratty but sounds like it was recorded in a wind tunnel. But there’s a simple and ingenious solution to help you avoid buying scratched records: Photoshop.

The problem (mainly for buyers, of course) with photographing vinyl is its hard to photograph something that is black and shiny and still capture the actual surface of the record unless you understand manual photography,” says the brains behind the tip, Reddit user REMAIN_IN_LIGHT.

“In fact, the shine (‘luster,’ ‘gloss,’ whatever you want to call it) of a record which often remains a characteristic of the vinyl regardless of surface marks, unless the record is very, very worn can be misleading as to its true condition. A cameras automatic exposure factors mostly in the highlights, and a lot of information remains buried in the shadows.

The answer? Drag the image into Photoshop and get creative with the levels. Its pretty simple choose Image > Adjustments > Levels (Command+L is the shortcut) and have a play with the...


My Morning Jacket announces new album, The Waterfall, streams Big Decisions listen
Mar 3, 2015 7:10am | Cosequence Of Sound

My Morning Jacket have announced the release of their seventh studio album, The Waterfall, due out May 4th through ATO/Capitol Records. It’s the first of two new records coming out from the Louisville outfit over the next two years.

For The Waterfall, MMJ once again enlisted the talents of Tucker Martine, the producer of 2011’s Circuital as well as frontman Jim James 2013 solo album Regions of Light and Sound of God. The group holed up at Panoramic House in Stinson Beach, California to begin recording the album. While there, they became enamored with the scenery of the Pacific Ocean from their recording studio. Though they also recorded bits in Louisville and Portland, Oregon, their experiences at Stinson Beach ended up informing the record the most.

For me, every record has the spirit of where we made it, James explains in a statement. Stinson Beach was so psychedelic and focused. It was almost like we lived on our own little moon out there. It feels like youre up in the sky.

A press release describes the 10-track album as sounding like “history and decades colliding, like a record made by fervent music fans in search of that tingle up the spine.” It goes on to say, “Inveterate music geeks will hear echoes of vintage rock and pop as MMJ continues to honor its influences without aping any of them; The Waterf...

Young New York City duo Jack + Eliza have been splitting their time between college studies and time in the studio for their forthcoming debut LP, Gentle Warnings, out on June 9th via Yebo Music.

Song : Sports Boyfriend : Pop Psychology
Mar 3, 2015 6:47am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Sports Boyfriend is the bedroom pop project of Chicago’s Eileen Peltier. Her music is a little raw and rough around the edges, but those qualities are the exact thing that have drawn us in. Her most recent song “Pop Psychology” is understated, sexy little jam that we have found ourselves playing over and over again. The song is just one in a treasure trove of songs over at her Soundcloud that we recommend checking out. Listen below.
