Photos: Bugged Out Weekender 2014 March 7-9, Stockport
Mar 11, 2014 1:03pm | Fact Magazine
Bugged Out turns 20 this year positively geriatric in clubbing terms and to mark the occasion the UK clubnight took its annual Weekender up north to the new location of Pontins holiday camp in Southport.
Carl Craig, Todd Terje, Dixon, Paul Woolford and Eclair Fifi all came along for the ride, as did a few usual suspects like Erol Alkan and Andrew Weatherall, and photographer Tom Horton was there to document the debauchery browse his photos in this gallery.
Meanwhile, co-founder Johnno Burgess told FACT a thing or two about the changes he’s witnessed in two decades of running club nights, accompanied by a selection of vintage party photos.

Extinction of Mankind touring around Maryland Death Fest, playing NYC & other dates
Mar 11, 2014 1:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Wyatt Marshall
England's Extinction of Mankind specialize in seriously heavy-hitting crust with a metal edge--give a listen to their album Northern Scum below (those guitars!). It was exciting enough that Extinction of Mankind was scheduled to play Maryland Death Fest, and now the band has announced a string of dates surrounding their appearance in Baltimore. Extinction of Mankind will be starting off on the west coast before jumping east for a string of east coast shows. The tour will hit NYC on May 29 at a yet-to-be determined venue. Stay tuned for details both here and on the band's Facebook page--there's a lot to come, as no supporting bands or venue info has been released for any of the tour dates.
All dates, a flyer, and a stream of Northern Scum can be found below...

INTERVIEW: Perfect Pussys Meredith Graves
Mar 11, 2014 12:56pm | Chart Attack
Less than a year after their breakthrough cassette demo I have lost all desire for feeling, Syracuse punk group Perfect Pussy are releasing their debut full-length Say Yes To Love next week on Captured Tracks. It’s a spartan release, in every sense of the word: a lean 23-minute dispatch from the psychic minefield we all have but fear to tread. But vocalist Meredith Graves goes there, both inside and out of her music.
I spoke to Graves on the phone a couple of weeks ago, and our interview drifted from her musical beginnings into a lengthy, enlightening discussion about privilege and the painful self-knowledge she had to gain to record Say Yes To Love.
Do you follow the coverage of your band?
Meredith Graves: I try. I dont have a computer, but I have an iPhone, and I get emails that have tons of links to the articles. I get really excited about the really big articles like us getting a review in Rolling Stone. Only because I can show my dad.
Is he a big Rolling Stone head?
No, hes just been in the music scene since he was much younger than me. Hes an old wonk. He cares so much about music, all different kinds, and introduced me to everything. He got me to where I am today. Anything thats like a “big thing” is a big deal to me because it will be a big deal to my dad. [He] gets a good laugh out of it.
A New Stooges Album, Sans Iggy...
Mar 11, 2014 12:50pm | The Daily Swarm
Blasphemy! The Stooges are recording a new album – without Iggy Pop! It’s a little more amicable than you might think; Iggy wanted to take a break, while the rest of the Stooges wanted to keep going. Re-Licked will feature new versions of Raw Power-era tracks that were only performed live with a bunch of different guest vocalists. Guitarist James Williamson spoke with Rolling Stone about the decision:
Iggy later released a statement to the magazine:

Whether you’re gearing up and getting hyped for your trip down to Texas, or kicking yourself on your way to whatever it is you’re doing that isn’t SWSW, there’s a ton of music you need to get acquainted with. Fortunately, we’ve got the playlist you need to make sure you don’t accidentally miss some of the incredible talent that’s going to be passing through Austin this week.
Among these 50 tracks you’ll find everything from the garage-rock charm of Krill to the electro-R&B groove of Young & Sick. You can catch Alvvay’s retro-surf wave on Adult Diversion before swinging along with the shimmery glitch groove of Sylvan Esso’s Coffee, but make sure you take a chillwave break with Vancouver Sleep Clinic, or get sloppy-happy with Young Thug along the way. You’ve got some serious preparation to do, so get started below! And if you won’t be attending the festivities, you’ve got some serious vicarious living to do, and we hope our playlist serves you well.

Listen: Fé 50/50
Mar 11, 2014 12:45pm | The Line Of Best Fit
After cutting their teeth as buskers on the capitals train network (getting under the skin of the city, they called it), London’s Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan of Fé have alighted with 50/50.
The AA side of a single that also includes Turn Your Light On, 50/50 is a gently pulsating and darkly romantic pop song that brings to mind both the wistful smoothness of Roxy Music and contemporary bounce of Foals, the latters producer Luke Smith also sitting behind the boards here.
50/50/”Turn Your Light On will be released on 24 March via Generator.
La Femme made a new video, playing BV SXSW day party, answer our 5 Questions (updated dates, stream)
Mar 11, 2014 12:35pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
As mentioned, La Femme are over from Paris for a lengthy tour of North America that is currently in Austin for SXSW. They play the French Tech party tonight (3/11) at Trinity Hall (RSVP) and their last shows of the week is the Friday BrooklynVegan free day party at Red 7. La Femme also play NYC at Glasslands on March 23, which is presented by BV and also features Future Punx and Regal Degal, making for a solid Sunday night's entertainment. (I'll be DJing between sets, too.) Tickets are still available. They'll also open for Trail of Dead on their two NYC shows (MHOW 3/28, Bowery Ballroom 3/29) at the end of March. All dates are listed below.
The band's 2013 album, Psycho Tropical Berlin, was just got a stateside release with a few bonus tracks. The band just released a video for album cut "Amour Dans Le Motu" and it's an eight-minute epic into the heart of darkness, and then the heart of a disco. Jungle warfare, topless dancers and general French sexiness abounds. Needless to say it's not exactly safe for work. Watch it below.
The band also took time out of their busy schedule to answer our 5 QUESTIONS:
1) What is your favorite venue to play in the country (or world) and why?
Probably one that we have not played yet! But of the ones that we have played, we would sa...
Stream: SBTRKTs surprise new EP Transitions
Mar 11, 2014 12:29pm | Cosequence Of Sound
SBTRKT is currently finishing work on the follow-up to his self-titled debut LP. But first, the British electronic artist has plans for a new series of instrumental 12-inches called Transitions. Already we’ve heard the track called “Hold the Line”; now, you can stream the entire collection via SBTRKT’s website.
The 12-inches will be released in three parts, each featuring two songs with artwork and 2D Moiré animated created by A Hidden Place. Transitions I will be available May 5th, with part II following on May 19th, and Transitions III on June 2nd. The material will also available for digital download.
SBTRKT stated in a press release that the music was all written in the past year while in the processes of recording his sophomore record. He added, “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.” In that vein, the new material is “along the lines of the music [SBTRKT] put out on Ramp or the early Young Turks releases.”
Below, listen to ”Highs & Lows” from Transition III.

The 10 Best Hold Steady Songs
Mar 11, 2014 12:10pm | StereoGum
Rumors of rock and roll’s demise have been greatly exaggerated for almost as long as there’s been rock and roll, so it’s not like this generation has a monopoly on rockist panic. But as today’s most popular rock acts cease to be rock acts — Mumford And Sons’ pop-folk, Eric Church’s country-fried wallop, the car-ad concept art that is Imagine Dragons — rock purists have found themselves increasingly rudderless against the Billboard chart’s current. While it’s true that rock has been losing ground with young people for decades, it’s typically been to other genres. Now the other genres eat it from within.

Philly punks The Menzingers recently announced that their fourth album, Rented World, would be out on April 22 via Epitaph and revealed its lead single, "In Remission," a track with a bit more studio shine than their last release but possibly even more aggression.

Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/14) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (3/12) at noon.
