Kill J Barbie Girl (Aqua Cover)
Nov 28, 2015 1:02pm | StereoGum
Sharp-edged Danish sneer-pop mastermind Kill J has just shared a cover of Aqua's 1997 hit "Barbie Girl." She takes the unnerving elements of the original and blow them up into something outright menacing, swapping out the palette of plastic pinks and blues for a sinister, shadowy grayscale and mostly avoiding the song's iconic chorus. "My … More »

Use your brain: George Dubose on 30 years of iconic music photography
Nov 28, 2015 11:31am | Fact Magazine
George Dubose was an unwitting witness to the birth of an icon.
In the early 1980s, Dubose was contacted by artist manager Camille Barbone to take photos of a young female singer named Madonna Louise Ciccone. The shoot took place at a small venue called Uncle Sam’s Blues, in Long Island. It was Madonna’s first show as a front woman, for a band called The Breakfast Club. Dubose’s photos captured the young singerand her only, at the request of Barbonein various outfits and poses, hinting at what would become her trademarks.
Halfway through the performance Dubose noticed Madonna seemed nervous. In between set changes he went into the dressing room to give her some words of encouragement but Barbone overheard the conversation and decided to kick the photographer out. The photos Dubose took that night were never paid for nor used by Barbone, and wouldnt appear until decades later. This story is one of many Dubose has of a period when he happened to be in the right place at the right time, with a camera.
After 25 years in New York City, today Dubose resides in Cologne, Germany, where he lives off his extensive work archiveover 300 covers including 18 gold and platinum albumsand still shoots artists as diverse as heavy metal bands and r&b singers. I call him in October during a visit to the states, and shortly after a boat trip off the Florida coastI don’t take photos as a hobby, I go sailing, it annoys the shit ou...

Nov 28, 2015 9:00am | Gorilla Vs Bear
Taken from Melbourne group Caroline No's limited No Language cassette, a lovely collection of dreamily languid, vaguely psychedelic, and loose, often improvised bedroom pop gems that reveal themselves more with each listen. Recorded with a handheld recorder, and out now "on a hot green cassette in a hot pink case, extra special put together to be beautiful." The group apparently has another new record called Swimmers, produced by Mick Turner of Dirty Three, out soon.

The Essential Oneohtrix Point Never
Nov 28, 2015 5:00am | Fact Magazine
Its the usual response after getting to that mouthful of a name. Always misheard, occasionally mispronounced (weve all cringed at someone, possibly ourselves, upon the utterance of Oh-Nee-Oh-Trix). That awkwardness is a built-in quality that every fans grappled with while internally composing their best sales pitch. We have it easy on Twitter with its spacious social canvas, but who has time for 140 characters irl? all apologies if that sounds glib, but really thank you so much for the click.
Miscommunication is at the heart of Daniel Lopatins work as Oneohtrix Point Never, the central form being arguably the most personal: memory, that slippery interference with our sense of self in time. The name is a garbled reference to the radio station Magic 106.7 from the Boston-area where Lopatin grew up. The channel, in a medium thats always earned affection for its knob-twiddling fight for clarity, becomes Oneohtrix Point Never a project that captures the same distortions of memory through .
Memory is constant in Oneohtrixs wildly diverse world it may comfort and soothe us, it may torture us with dread and anxiety, but it is always constant. 106.7 was an adult contemporary station tomorrows golden oldies and while some oldies are certainly goodies as advertised, the format can feel exploitative, designed to catalyze a triggered response (Now, lovers, were gonna take you back to that sweet summer of 72 with the one and only ) that tempor...
