FACT mix 497: The Black Madonna
May 25, 2015 7:28am | Fact Magazine

Although Marea Stamper has only been releasing music as The Black Madonna since 2012, her story stretches much further back.

After moving from Kentucky to Chicago in her early 20s, Stamper made music under various aliases while working for Radek’s Dust Traxx label. After some time struggling to get attention for her music, Garrett David – an intern at Dust Traxx while Stamper worked there – asked to release ‘We Don’t Need No Music (Thank You Rahaan)’ on his new label. The whole story is told in an excellent RA feature, where Stamper admits that the success of that track, as well as a subsequent EP on Argot, Lady of Sorrows, “changed my whole life in a period of – not kidding – three months.”

As well as a renowned – and fantastic – DJ, Stamper is creative director at Smart Bar, a decades-old Chicago venue where as well as organising residencies for Honey Dijon, DVS1 and more, she’s diversified the club’s make-up with programs like this year’s DAPHNE, a series of workshops, parties and more in celebration of Women’s History Month, described as “a month full of reminders that women always have been and always will be central to dance and electronic music culture”.

On June 13, The Black Madonna will touch down in London for Found Festival, where she’ll be spinning alongsid...

The new season of Twin Peaks will be twice as many episodes
May 24, 2015 11:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

With David Lynch back on board, production for the new season of Twin Peaks is full steam ahead. Correspondingly, we’ve received new details on what to expect.

For one, the show’s third season will span 18 episodes, double the amount than previously announced. Some fans have speculated that the number of episodes was one of Lynch’s main points of conflict with Showtime, which will be airing the revived series.

Additionally, Angelo Badalamenti is confirmed to be scoring the new episodes. The American composer created the music for the first two seasons of the show in addition to other Lynch projects such as Blue Velvet.

Also of note: Twin Peaks will be filmed in North Bend and Snoqualmie, Washington, including Double R Diner, which is being restored specifically for the series.

These revelations were made by cast members y Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee during a Twin Peaks panel at Crypticon in Seattle.



What's going on Memorial Day? (Laura Jane Grace, Blonde Elvis, Mary Epworth, Joan As Police Woman & more)
May 24, 2015 11:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Laura Jane Grace w/ Against Me in Chicago, 2014 (more by Jeff Ryand)

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

Laura Jane Grace @ City Winery
Laura Jane Grace has been up to a lot lately, including fronting one of the most vital punk bands around (Against Me!), covering The Replacements with Miley Cyrus & Joan Jett, and producing the new Worriers record. The whole AM! crew will be here for a free show in June, but tonight you can see Laura in solo mode.

Gracie, Blonde Elvis, Shark?, Gingerlys @ Palisades
Jesse James Laderoute is a maintstay in the quirkier side of Toronto's music scene, having played drums for Slim Twig, collaborated with Ell V Gore, and his own band Young Mother. His current concern is Blonde Elvis who make off-kilter glam somewhere between Brian Eno and Pulp. This is an all-around good bill with Shark?'s '90s-ish indie rock and jangly shoegazers Gingerlys.

Computer Magic, Heavenly Beat, Nicholas Nicholas, Double Trouble Double Dragon DJs @ Riis Park Beach Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar had it's final night last night, but the folks behind just opened Riis Park Beach Bazaar this weekend in the Rockaways. There's shopping, yummy food options, beverages, and live music. Today's entertainment (which starts at 2 PM) features synthpop act Computer Magic, and the breezy pop of Heavenly Beat.

May 24, 2015 10:27pm | Fact Magazine

A 2003 clip shows Tinashe performing a Bob Dylan classic.

Masked & Anonymous was a largely unsuccessful comedy drama written by and starring Bob Dylan. A cute clip from the 2003 film shows future R&B chanteuse Tinashe performing for Dylan as a 10-year-old.

The ‘All Hands On Deck’ singer covered Dylan’s classic ‘The Times They Are a-Changin’ in front of the man himself. Watch the footage below.

Hear Young Thug
May 24, 2015 10:02pm | Fact Magazine

Young Thug’s music has been leaking all over the place lately.

Earlier this month, more than one hundred Rich Gang tracks surfaced online. Some were unfinished efforts, including a collaboration with Jamie XX and Popcaan, while others could have passed as potential singles.

The latest Young Thug cut to find its way to the masses is the sinister ‘Spaghetti Factory’, produced by frequent collaborator Metro Boomin. The pair’s alchemy comes to the fore once again, with Thugger appearing to have found a kindred spirit in the ascending ATL producer.

PC Music pair talk Pop Cube, Red Bull and Madonna.

PC Music co-founder A.G. Cook and close PC affiliate Sophie have given their first joint interview to Rolling Stone. The piece also marks the first time that Sophie has given an in-person interview to any journalist. During the conversation, the pair took the opportunity to discuss a number of topics, including pop music, gender and corporate sponsorship.

On whether or not PC Music is satire, Cook said: “Everything can get interpreted as satire, in that very cynical way. But when we were doing Pop Cube with Red Bull, there was a really good moment quite early on where they wanted to scope out what we were like. Within the first minute, they could tell we weren’t pranksters. We take it seriously. This is a big part of our lives. There’s no way that satire could be at the core of anything.”

The pair also discussed their recent Pop Cube event, which was sponsored by Red Bull (check out a photo gallery here). “We wanted it to fall outside the feeling of a normal music event

May 24, 2015 12:11pm | StereoGum
Rumor has it that someone out there is sitting on a veritable treasure trove on unreleased rap tracks, just waiting for the right time to leak them. Allegedly, that's been the source of the recent Drake leaks, and the Kendrick Lamar/Lady Gaga one as well. And there's apparently even more where that came … More »
