Disclosure are co-producing the new Mary J Blige album
Sep 1, 2014 8:25am | Fact Magazine

The Lawrence brothers unlikely union with the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul continues. 

Mary J Bliges January re-vox of Disclosures F For You was a neat little coup – a commendably ambitious (if not entirely successful) attempt by Disclosure to broaden their horizons. As The Guardian report, that collaboration wasnt a one-off.

In an extensive interview, Blige goes into detail about her forthcoming album, Mary J Blige: The London Sessions. It transpires that Disclosure are responsible for at least one track on the album, titled Right Now. According to the pairs Twitter account, their role was even more extensive: We have been writing/producing some songs on @maryjblige ‘s forthcoming record with @jimmynapes and @samsmithworld

As the album’s title suggests, The London Sessions will also feature a roster of chart-troubling UK songwriters and producers, including Sam Smith, Disclosure collaborator Jimmy Napes and Naughty Boy. Rodney Jerkins takes an exec producer credit.

In the article, Disclosures Howard Lawrence went into detail about the creative process of working with Blige;

“The track Right Now started with some chords I made on Jimmy Napes’s piano. We took that and gave it a Disclosurey feel with some drums that Guy made. Mary leaves the instrumental side to us and gets much more involved when it c...

New Band Smell : Gaslighters Union
Sep 1, 2014 7:34am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Been a coon’s age since we’ve thrown a NBS at ya’ll, so we figured it was about time to open to container and see if the contents were still fresh. Gaslighters Union is the latest outfit to peek its collective head above the waves in the turbulent Twin Cities music scene and have just released their showroom-fresh debut recording, The Corvair EP.

The band’s enigmatic promo shot depicts four members (perhaps entering the soothing light?), however, the EP’s liner notes suggest that no fewer than a dozen folks were strong-armed into this recording; more proof that you can believe none of what you see and even less of what you hear.

And speaking of what you hear, this five-song EP suggests a band that’s still trying to find its place in this big ‘ol scary world. “Water Tower” stylistically belies the Union’s TC base, but that seems to be a passing fancy as the EP is otherwise loaded (overloaded?) with non-rock instrumentation and oft challenging arrangements. Nowhere is this more evident than the title track, which stretches nearly seven minutes and has the druggy charm of a lost Raymond Carver short story.

Indulge in the wonders created by the LA singer-songwriter, but beware - there's immense trauma, darkness and, unfortunately, precious few new cuts.

The dancefloor version of a Buzzfeed list: QT, Skream and Marquis Hawkes reviewed in the FACT Singles Club
Sep 1, 2014 7:14am | Fact Magazine

Each week on the FACT Singles Club, a selection of our writers work their way through the new music of the week gone by.

With the way individual tracks are now consumed, the idea of what constitutes a single has shifted dramatically in the last half a decade, and its for this reason that the songs reviewed across the next pages are a combination of 12 vinyl releases, mixtape cuts, Soundcloud uploads and more.

Rated and slated this week? Redlight, Skream, Marquis Hawkes and, inevitably, QT.

Christopher Owens - Never Wanna See That Look Again [takeover] - DiS Does Singles 01.09.14
Sep 1, 2014 6:58am | Drowned In Sound

Hello, and welcome to a very special edition of DiS Does Singles. In case you hadn't guessed already, it's dedicated to the one and only Christopher Owens.

Having made so many of favourite songs over the past five years, both as a solo artist and as part of Girls, we asked him some nerdy questions about nine of them. Want to know know the inside scoop on 'Hellhole Ratrace' and 'New York City'? You came to the right place.

Also, 'Never Wanna See That Look Again' is Single of the Week. Because, of course it is.

Single of the Week

Christopher Owens

Never Wanna See That Look Again (Turnstile)


Whenever Christopher Owens talks about his new album, he always seems to be teasing the next one. The former Girls frontman has claimed hell make 20 records and, with 100 unrecorded demos kicking around on his hard drive, you wouldnt bet against him. Give it a decade and youll be debating the blue-eyed dreamers best songwriting era.

For now, Owens is in full-on-solo-whimsy mode having stripped away the scuzz from his days spent with JR White. Following on from last years Lysandre, Never Wanna See That Look Again is a simple, sincere love song. As all too often the case for the man behind Heartbreaker and Forgiveness, theres trouble afoot with his beau.

There was one time when I drank too much / Two times when I said too much, simpers Owens in his trademarked waifish tremble. You know the tone, it could make e...
