Mar 11, 2014 11:58am | Fact Magazine
Three 12″s on the way as the masked producer clears his cupboards.
SBTRKT has announced the release of Transitions, a series of six instrumental tracks due for release digitally and on three separate 12″s over the coming months. The series was teased on Mary Anne Hobbs’ radio show last month, but now the producer has the full details.
“This is music written over the last year, whilst recording for my second album,” the ‘Wildfire’ producer explained. ‘Much of the music I released before my debut album was instrumental and I want to continue to share this side of the music I make.”
Each track can be heard now at the Transitions mini-site, designed by long-term collaborator A Hidden Place (who created SBTRKTs tribal mask) and Japanese creative agency PARTY.
The three 12″s will feature artwork that creates a squiggly Moiré pattern when the inner bag is removed from its sleeve check it out on the website’s background. The six tracks will also be available to purchase separately in MP3, WAV or FLAC formats.
Here’s the full tracklisting and release schedule:
Transitions I: ‘Gamalena’/'Hold The Line’ YT112, out May 5

Julian Casablancas previews new album with surprise shows
Mar 11, 2014 11:54am | Cosequence Of Sound
Last week, Julian Casablancas released a teaser trailer for his long-awaited sophomore solo album. In the days that have followed, he’s further previewed the album with a series of surprise shows. The first one came Saturday night at Washington, DC art space Sleep Walking Cult, where he debuted three new songs accompanied by his new band The Voidz. He did that again last night at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans, this time playing a 10-song set comprised of new songs, material from his debut LP Phrazes For The Young, his Daft Punk collaboration “Instant Crush”, and even cuts by The Strokes. New song titles apparently include “Ego”, “2231″, “Dr. Acula”, and “Arabic”.
According to a source, Casablancas will play a few more surprise shows as he makes his way to South by Southwest later this week. According to one diehard fan who spoke to Casablancas last night, he’ll next play Pensacola, FL. Currently, he’s set to perform at the Fader Fort on Saturday night, but we also hear he has another SXSW show is planned. Keep your eyes glued to Casablancas’ Twitter account, as well as Cult Records’ Twitter account, for more details.
Below, revisit the aforementioned teaser trailer. The album is still without a title or release date; hopefully that changes soon.

When Beyoncé released her fucking amazing surprise self-titled album last year, she put together much of it with the help of a mysterious producer known only as Boots, and we later learned that, in a previous life, he’d led the Stereogum Band To Watch Blonds. Last month, Boots released a solo track called “Dust,” and now he’s followed it up with an architecturally precise synth-rock song called “Howl.” Download it below.
Watch: Corbu We Are Sound [Premiere]
Mar 11, 2014 11:45am | The Line Of Best Fit
Named after one of greatest architects of the last century, Corbu come fresh from Brooklyn with the aim of constructing aesthetically pleasing, non-worldly landscapes. This outlook is embodied in their new video for “We Are Sound”, which you can see here first on Best Fit.
There’s an element of the 80s sci-fi in “We Are Sound”, not least from its VHS tint or the unidentifiable shiny object that the band centre around. The track’s interplay between driving guitars and spacey synths pleasantly echoes this, and while initially it is slightly difficult to find direction in the song, it is redeemed by its clever climax. Admittedly, getting lost momentarily can be a good thing, particularly when it’s part of this upcoming band’s aesthetic.
We Are Sound (self-produced) is available in the UK now via 3Beat.

Screw your friends at SXSW: Stream new albums from Kevin Drew, The War On Drugs, more
Mar 11, 2014 11:35am | Chart Attack
If youre anything like me, your Twitter feed is about to be clogged by friends micro-broadcasting the free tacos theyre eating in their super-cool rompers at the big Brooklyn Mix Tapes BBQ and where the hell are you GET HERE NOW! But even if youre not roadtripping to SXSW to get your picture taken with Grumpy Cat or attend a live podcast taping or launch an app or whatever it is people do down there in the weird part of Texas, the festival thats stolen all the bands from your local scene for a week has left behind a solid bounty of actual music you can stream for free without leaving town.
Today is the first official day of SXSWs music component, sure, but its also Tuesday, which is the default release date for most albums. Most of the albums below are out next week, but bands undoubtedly wanted to get them streaming before their 12 Austin showcases, ready to be sold as soon as they get back. Put them all on in different rooms, run between each, tweet how much each is #killingit, drink some tequila shots, and occasionally stop to piss in a traumatic bathroom.
Perfect Pussy, Say Yes To Love
The first (but heavily-hyped) full-length from the Syracuse noise-punks who helped make 2013 the year of the cassette tape.
The War On Drugs, Lost In The Dream
Another dreamy epic from Philadelphias other rising Americana auteur, Adam Granduciel. Listen at CBC Music.

The masked British producer SBTRKT hasn’t yet announced a follow-up album to his excellent 2011 self-titled debut. But last month, he shared a new track called “Hold The Line” and announced plans to release a series of instrumental 12″ EPs called Transitions, which he’d crank out before giving us that new album that he’s been working on. But now he’s suddenly released all those instrumental tracks into the world in one go, with no warning. The six-track Transitions EP is out now on Young Turks, and SBTRKT describes it like this: “This is music written over the last year, whilst recording for my second album. Much of the music I released before my debut album was instrumental and I want to continue to share this side of the music I make.” And now you can stream the whole EP here.

Stream Evian Christs Waterfall EP for Tri Angle
Mar 11, 2014 11:20am | Fact Magazine
Ahead of its release next week on Tri Angle Records, Evian Christ’s Waterfall EP is now available to stream via his website.
After turning heads with his breakthrough EP Kings And Them back in 2012, last year the producer born Joshua Leery was involved in the creation of Kanye West’s epic Yeezus, an experience that seems to have redirected his hip-hop influence towards an even more scuzzy and aggressive sound on Waterfall post-Yeezus, you might say.
Recorded in his hometown of Ellesmere Port and in New York, the EP was mixed by Noah Rubin and mastered by Heba Kedry. Propeller, contains a sample of Nine by his friend and affiliate producer, Lukid.
Waterfall is out on March 17 digitally and will be available on limited edition vinyl, featuring artwork by David Rudnick, on April 1. Stream it here.
To celebrate the release, the producer will be throwing a Trance Party at London’s Oval Space on March 21, featuring Travis Scott (live), Millie & Andrea (live), Lil Silva, Sophie (live), Powell and Mssingno. Tickets are on sale now.
He’s also heading out on tour across the UK and Europe with Mssingno see the list of dates below.
FACT’s John Calvert caught up with Evian Christ last month to hear about Yeezus and why he “lives for rap”.
