Listen: Sunny Day Real Estates Lipton Witch, the bands first new song in 14 years
Apr 20, 2014 10:22am | Cosequence Of Sound

Emo-rock band Sunny Day Real Estate reunited in 2009 with promises for a new album, their first since 2000′s The Rising Tide. It’s been a bumpy road since then, however, as recordings sessions “just fell apart,” according to bassist Nate Mendel, and the band’s status is currently described as “inactive.”

But yesterday, the band unveiled a surprise new song for Record Store Day. Entitled “Lipton Witch”, the emotionally charged rocker appears on a split 7-inch with Circa Survive. In case you didn’t grab a copy, take a listen to the stream below (via Stereogum).

Circa Survive band member Brendan Ekstrom discussed the collaboration in an issued statement: “I went to see a few of the Sunny Day Real Estate shows when they toured in 2009 and I knew theyd written and recorded at least one song during that time. I got Jeremy Enigks info from a mutual friend and emailed him asking if they had anything planned with the track. I knew they were on a hiatus and I hated the idea of that song never being released. Jeremy spoke with the other guys who all seemed interested to do the split I had I proposed. We had a B-side wed been sitting on that had a mellower vibe which seemed to balance their more rocking song in a way that another upbeat jam might not have. I couldnt be more happy that this is happening. I honestly think this one of the best songs Sunny Day has ever written and Im really ...

Bruce Springsteen and newly inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Famers the E Street Band are currently touring North America in support of their latest album, High Hopes. Last night, the band descended on Charlotte, where they played a 30-song setlist chock full of covers and sing requests. Among the biggest highlights? A rollicking rendition of Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”. Watch fan-shot footage below.

The setlist also included covers of Suicide (“Dream Baby Dream”), The Isley Brothers (“Shout”), and Richard Berry (“Louie Louie”), in addition to originals like “No Surrender”, “Out in the Street”, “Racing in the Street”, and “Darkness on the Edge of Town”.

Gucci Mane and Young Thug drop collaborative mixtape Young Thugga Mane La Flare
Apr 20, 2014 9:28am | Fact Magazine

An Easter Sunday and 4/20 celebration.

ATL bosses and fellow weird geniuses Gucci Mane and Young Thug have finally dropped off their collaborative mixtape.

Young Thugga Mane La Flare comprises a very manageable 13 tracks from the inimitable pair, plus a quickie guest appearance from PeeWee Longway. Extra points for the artwork.

The mixtape is one of a promised pair of releases from Gucci this month, with The Brick Factory Vol. 1 expected to drop any day now. The rapper has been on astoundingly prolific form given that he spent most of 2013 fending off lawsuits, sitting in jail and battling a serious lean addiction, managing to release eight mixtapes and two albums last year (most recently The State Vs Radric Davis II, released on Christmas Day).

Things aren’t looking so rosy for Brick Squad protégé Young Thug, however, with recent reports suggesting the young rapper is trapped in label limbo with just a $15,000 advance.

Pharrell returned to Indio, CA on Saturday night for another star-studded set at Coachella. After spending time on stage with Gwen Stefani, Tyler the Creator, Snoop Dogg, and Diplo during his weekend one performance, Pharrell rounded up an equally impressive set of guests for weekend two.

Over the course of the 20-song set, Pharrell joined by the likes of Jay Z, Pusha T, Usher, Busta Rhymes, and T.I. The set began with a cover of Daft Punk’s “Lose Yourself to Dance” before he brought out T.I. for a rendition of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”. Pusha appeared to perform his Clipse classic “Grindin’”, while Usher crooned his way through “U Don’t Have to Call”. Jay Z, meanwhile, joined Pharrell for “Frontin’”, “Excuse Me Miss”, “La-La-La (Excuse Me Miss Again)”, and “I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)”.

Check out the full setlist, along with a few video clips below.

White House declines petition to deport Justin Bieber
Apr 20, 2014 8:56am | Cosequence Of Sound

A petition to deport Justin Bieber back to Canada drew upward of 250,000 signatures on the White House’s website, requiring a formal response from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. On Saturday, President Obama’s administration finally issued its decision — or, rather, non-decision.

The White House declined to comment on Bieber’s legal status, explaining that in order “to avoid the appearance of improper influence, the White House may decline to address certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government in its response to a petition.” Bieber is currently facing a series of charges stemming from separate arrests in Toronto and Miami.

Rather, the White House used the opportunity to push for immigration reform as a whole, while also working in a few Bieber-related puns for good measure.

“We’ll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Biebers case, but were glad you care about immigration issues. Because our current system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and 11 million people are living in the shadows.

That status quo isnt good for our economy or our country. We need common-sense immigration reform to make sure everyone plays by the same set of rules.

Not only is it the right thing to do morally, its the rig...

Arctic Monkeys and Mogwai lead the best vinyl sales figures in a decade
Apr 20, 2014 8:27am | Fact Magazine

The Scottish rock titans score the biggest selling vinyl record released this year.

To coincide with yesterday’s Record Store Day festivities, the Official Charts Company has revealed the UKs top-selling vinyl albums of the year so far.

The top spot is occupied by Arctic Monkeys’ fifth album AM, which was released last year but has continued to shift units following the band’s BRIT Awards wins.

Rather more excitingly, at number two and the biggest selling vinyl album to be released this year is Mogwais Rave Tapes, which broke the UK’s Top 10 when it came out back in January.

Bruce SpringsteensHigh Hopes is at number three, followed by Elbows The Take Off And Landing Of Everything and Warpaints self-titled second album.

Last year 790,000 vinyl albums were sold in the UK, but 2014 is already more than one-third of the way to that target after 15 weeks, according to the Official Charts Company, who predict sales will hit around 900,000 for the full year if they continue at the current rate.

Mogwai are currently rustling up a deluxe reissue of their 1999 album Come On Die Young, bundling together a mammoth 17 additional tracks. The hardworking band also have a new EP in the works

Clay Rendering fuse dream pop and black metal and the results are stunning
Apr 20, 2014 7:29am | Fact Magazine

Even the name Clay Rendering evokes the principles of birth and growth that guide Mike and Tara Connelly’s new band.

Tara and Mike have been involved in countless other projects, both separately (The Pool at Metz, Wolf Eyes) and together (The Haunting), but it’s a drive to create something new that characterises Clay Rendering. To the husband and wife duo, it almost feels like their first band.

Clay Rendering have just released Waters Above the Firmament, their second EP for Hospital Productions. Its four immense songs take in ambient and pop as well as black metal and heavy rock  cathartic and intense, but underpinned by a touching vulnerability that foils the heaviness. Given that Clay Rendering is such a personal project, it’s unsurprising how excited Mike and Tara are about the huge scope it offers for them to explore new ground together.

What are you up to?

Mike: We’re playing a show in New York tonight. We’ve been loving touring. We did a bunch last year and we already have a lot more lined up this year. We’re a self-sufficient, highly mobile touring unit that can play anywhere!

Are you carrying on with The Haunting or focusing only on Clay Rendering?

Mike: Yeah, it’s kind of on the back-burner. We still love doing that stuff, and I think we’ll develop stuff t...
