Watch: The Last Skeptik - Propulsion (feat. FEMME)
Oct 30, 2014 12:17pm | The Line Of Best Fit
UK nu-electro producer The Last Skeptik has unveiled a new music video for recent track "Propulsion", featuring FEMME on vocals.>
Team Spirit Satisfaction Video
Oct 30, 2014 12:14pm | StereoGum
Team Spirit, the Brooklyn garage-rockers led by the former Passion Pit keyboardist Ayad Al Adhamy, have built up an enviable catalog of goofy, fun music videos. Their new clip, for “Satisfaction,” might not be their best, but it still has the anarchic spirit of its predecessors. Director Alex Russek shot the video at New York’s storied Electric Lady studios, and the clip tells the story of the band’s dealings with a pill-popping, Rick Rubin-esque producer. Watch it below.
Mute unveils its second Dirty Electronics handheld synth and sequencer watch it in action
Oct 30, 2014 12:09pm | Fact Magazine
The second iteration of the gadget originally created for Mute’s Roundhouse event in 2011.
Those electronics-manglers at Mute have unveiled the Dirty Electronics Mute Synth II (MSII), a handheld synth and sequencer created in collaboration with designer and writer Adrian Shaughnessy.
The synth is an update of an earlier device created for Mute’s Short Circuit event at London’s Roundhouse back in 2011, and stems from John Richards’ ongoing project Dirty Electronics, which he positions as an alternative to mass-produced digital culture. Instead of slick, shiny, uniformly designed gizmos, Dirty Electronics are designed to feel heavy, hand-made, hacked, even a bit kitsch.
Packaged with simple instructions, diagrams and essays, the MSII is meant to be accessible to untrained enthusiasts as well as synth aficionados, while additional modules and add-ons make it customisable and scalable. The core of the instrument is a versatile mini patchbay that encourages playful interaction with the instrument, while the printed circuit board artwork has multiple touch electrodes that provide a labyrinth of possible connections and resulting behaviours.
The Mute Synth II comes with a a selection of works using the synth by artists associated with Dirty Electronics and Mute, including Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle/Carter Tutti Void), Simo...
Damien Rice premieres new song The Greatest Bastard listen
Oct 30, 2014 12:06pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In less than two weeks, Damien Rice will return with his new album, My Favourite Faded Fantasy. Produced by Rick Rubin, it serves as his third LP to date and first since 2006’s 9. In anticipation, the Irish singer-songwriter has unveiled a new song entitled “The Greatest Bastard”.
Much like on previous offerings “I Don’t Want to Change You” and the title track, Rice reflects deeply on a relationship. However, between his hushed croon, barely-there traces of an acoustic guitar, and truly gut-wrenching lyrics (“Am I the greatest bastard that you met? The only one you can’t forget?” and “Am I just dreaming once again? Some dreams are better when they end.”), the song just might be one of his most heartbreaking works à la 2002’s “The Blower’s Daughter”.
Listen in below, followed by a short video clip.
My Favourite Faded Fantasy arrives on November 11th via Warner Music. In support of the LP, Rice will be touring North America for the rest of the year. Consult his full schedule here.
power electronics/noise pioneers Ramleh playing two NYC shows in January w/ related acts JFK & Kleistwahr & more
Oct 30, 2014 12:02pm | Brooklyn Vegan
When Gary Mundy formed Ramleh and the Broken Flag label in 1982, he was a primary participant in the UK power electronics scene, which attempted to outdo the industrial template first drawn by Throbbing Gristle. Very much a product of their time, his recordings were violent sonic bursts laced with proto-fascist and misogynist imagery, given vulgar titles meant to shock. Mundy and co-conspirator Philip Best quickly rose from this noise ghetto by applying the scene's best aspects (experimentation, improvisation, volume) to a more traditional rock format. Along with its sister group Skullflower, Ramleh laid the foundations for improvisational noise rock with a stubborn intensity that catered to no one. The band rarely issued records in quantities greater than 500, live shows were few and far between and cover art and liner notes were filled with cryptic drawings, photographs and abstract writings. Their sound remained reliably rooted in an unwavering formula: plodding heavy drums, an endlessly repetitive low-end bass groove and wave upon wave of guitar screech. - [Trouser Press]British power electronics and noise rock pioneers Ramleh, who are currently Anthony di Franco, Gary Mundy, and Martyn Watts, will be playing two rare NYC shows in NYC in early 2015: January 28 at Home Sweet Home for Nothing Changes with JFK and Kleistwahr, and then January 29 at Saint Vitus

Sick Feeling at BV-RBSS show at Palisades (more by Ryan
When we first heard Sick Feeling's tracks on Soundcloud, they came off like a scuzzy lo-fi punk band, but "Liberal Arts," the first single from their debut LP, Suburban Myth, is much different. This one has the band -- whose lineup includes members of Ink & Dagger, Trail of Dead, Trash Talk and more -- sounding more like something that could've come out on Equal Vision in 2001. The production is much higher quality than those early tracks, the riffs are dissonant and metallic, and singer Jesse Miller-Gordon sounds like he's killing his vocal cords with every note. It's a great song, and you can check it out (via FADER) below. The album comes out January 20 via Terrible Records and Geoff Rickly's Collect Records.
Sick Feeling will also be touring the West Coast in November with Geoff Rickly's band United Nations, which is pretty much a perfect pairing. All of those dates are listed, with the new song, below...

Seattle punks New Gods releasing an EP (watch a video)

by Andrew Sacher
New Gods were formed in 2013 by members of various Seattle bands and so far have a demo and the Sex & Destroy EP out. Their next release will be the What Did I Say? EP on Painter Man Records (pre-order), and we've got the premiere of the video for the title track in this post. Sounding something like Henry Rollins shouting over a Kurt Cobain riff, "What Did I Say?" is a ripper. Check it out for yourself below.

Chief Keef Paper (Feat. Gucci Mane)
Oct 30, 2014 11:26am | StereoGum
Chicago drill overlord Chief Keef may have lost his label deal, but when he gets together, he will still be a force on the mixtape underground. I have high hopes for the forthcoming Back From The Dead 2, the sequel to the tape that helped build Keef’s name in the first place. “Paper,” a track from that tape, has an uncommonly slurry verse from Keef’s incarcerated buddy Gucci Mane and a purposeful, fiery verse from Keef. It may be the first time Keef has ever outrapped Gucci on a song. Listen below.

Anthony Naples to release debut album on Four Tets Text Records
Oct 30, 2014 11:13am | Fact Magazine
Four Tet’s imprint presents the first full-length from the impressive newcomer.
Miami-via-New York house producer Anthony Naples has commanded our attention across a slim run of releases ever since his superlative 2012 debut on Mister Saturday Night, the fizzling, Pharrell-sampling ‘Mad Disrespect’.
After dishing out a stack of 12″s and an EP for Trilogy Tapes last year, as well as launching his own Proibito label, he’s now set to release his debut album on Four Tet’s Text Records in 2015.
Kieran Hebden made the announcement on Twitter and hinted that he might tease a few of the new tracks on his Rinse FM show tonight (Thursday, October 30), so tune in from 11pm if you want to find out.
In the meantime, enjoy Naples’ FACT mix from 2013 in the player below.

Damien Rice The Greatest Bastard
Oct 30, 2014 11:11am | StereoGum
Damien Rice has been on hiatus for eight years, but last month we heard a single off his forthcoming release, My Favourite Faded Fantasy. Today, the Irish singer-songwriter shares a new song, “The Greatest Bastard,” accompanied by a stylized performance video promoting the new record. “The Greatest Bastard” is a gorgeously lonely and ruminating track — it hits you in all of the right places without causing too much damage.

Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford and Jim James perform lost Bob Dylan song Six Months In Kansas City (Liberty Street) watch
Oct 30, 2014 11:10am | Cosequence Of Sound
Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes is a 15-track collection of new music based on two dozen recently discovered Bob Dylan lyrics. Due out on November 11th via Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest Records, the T-Bone Burnett-produced LP features folk supergroup The New Basement Tapes, aka Elvis Costello, My Morning Jackets Jim James, Mumford and Sons Marcus Mumford, Dawes Taylor Goldsmith, and Carolina Chocolate Drops Rhiannon Giddens. The lyrics are said to date back to 1967, during Dylan’s iconic Basement Tapes era.
Already we’ve heard a number of Lost on the River tracks, including “Nothing To It”, “Married To My Hack”, “Spanish Mary”, “When I Get My Hands On You”, and “Liberty Street”. Now, Costello leads the mighty collective through a live performance of a new song called “Six Months In Kansas City (Liberty Street)”. Equal parts powerful and soulful, it’s yet another solid showcasing of each of the artists’ individual talents and a great nod to Dylan’s lyrical prowess.
Watch below (via Rolling Stone).
Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes will be accompanied by a Showtime documentary set to debut on November 21st. According to a press release, director Sam Jones Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued presents an “exclusive ...
Sweet Apple Reunion (Feat. Robert Pollard) Video
Oct 30, 2014 11:05am | StereoGum
Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis leads the riff-rock side project Sweet Apple, but the band’s namesake is Dave Sweetapple, the Witch member who also plays in Sweet Apple. He’s the star of the band’s new Halloween-themed video for “Reunion,” a triumphant track that features fellow indie legend Robert Pollard on videos. (It’s on The Golden Age Of Glitter, the album that Sweet Apple released earlier this year.) Sweetapple plays a skateboarding, candy-thieving warlock who somehow survived the Salem Witch Trials but who doesn’t fare so well in his war against a gang of resourceful neighborhood children. Fellow band member John Petkovic, a former Cobra Vere member, directed the seriously adorably, lovably amateurish video. Check it out below.
