Here are the best-selling vinyl releases for Record Store Day 2015
Apr 21, 2015 2:56am | Fact Magazine
The numbers for Record Store Day 2015 are in.
Independent record store data compiled by Buzz Angle Music for Record Store Day 2015 has revealed the top 50 best-selling RSD releases. The White Stripes Get Behind Me Satan and Metallicas cassette demo No Life Til Leather top the list, with the vast majority of spots in the top 50 taken up by reissues of classic albums. Run The Jewels’ ‘Bust No Moves’ 12″ was the highest selling new entry, coming in at number three.
Record stores reported a 628% growth in sales compared to the previous Saturday (April 11). The numbers also revealed a 3.3% growth from Record Store Day 2014.
Our release of Record Store Day data in 2014 was the first of its kind, pinpointing the exact sales for each day and how they changed day-to-day, and this years data is similarly specific and fascinating, said Jim Lidestri, Founder and CEO of BuzzAngle Music owners Border City Media.

Speedy Ortiz - Foil Deer
Apr 21, 2015 2:41am | Drowned In Sound
About two thirds of the way through the film Bring It On, the cheerleading squad led by Kirsten Dunst hits rock bottom. Theyre reigning national champions but this years competition is just weeks away and the find themselves without a routine. All set to give up, Kirsten Dunst gives a rousing pep talk that gets them studying different kinds of movement from swing, interpretive dance and musicals to mime. Of course, theres a montage. The resulting routine is a genre-spanning cheer to a mash-up soundtrack that includes everything from Daphne and Celeste and Blaque to a punk rawk love song some guy recorded on to a mixtape for Kirsten Dunst. Its a cool, refreshing breeze in a competition heavy with tanned limbs following the same trajectories. The judges dont know what to make of it before they realise: the cheer paradigm has shifted.
Speedy Ortizs new album Foil Deer is the guitar band equivalent of that routine. Its a breath of fresh air rolling through a scene where theres plenty going on but everyones so busy trying to be everyone else that no one is being anyone at all. Singer and songwriter Sadie Dupuis has taken influences from all over the place and the band has woven them together into something exciting and new. Anyone hoping for Major Arcana mark two might as well go home because Speedy Ortiz are not resting on their laurels.
One thing thats still here is the Nineties influence - the tired Pavement com...
Bop English - Constant Bop
Apr 21, 2015 2:41am | Drowned In Sound
Constant Bop feels like an album displaced in time. The kind of lost gem youd discover digging through dusty crates in a second-hand record store. And while old maxims remain true you shouldnt judge anything by its cover, be they books, records or whatever its offbeat title and artwork somehow manage to seduce you before youve even heard a note. An aesthetic promise that, when you do give it a spin, more than pays off; the album surveying glam stomp, Seventies AM radio vibes and sweet home southern rock with hints at psyche-rock, country and soul.
Admittedly, on paper that might sound like a god-awful mess, but its held together by the keen abilities of James Petralli, the man behind the obscure pseudonym Bop English. If that name doesnt instantly ring a bell, its because hes perhaps better known for his day job as frontman of Texan rockers White Denim.
That group has grown from eccentric roots in frenetic garage rock, into a mature quartet; their last album, Corsicana Lemonade, channelling The Allman Brothers, with a tour-de-force homage to their Southern ancestry, which delved into psyche and deep-fried rock. And perhaps unsurprising Constant Bop walks a similar path. Even more so when you consider most of his bandmates in White Denim have contributed to the album in some capacity. But, theres no doubt this is Petrallis album it ditches the more sprawling, experimental characteristics of White Denims sound in favour of ...
The Grubby Mitts - What the World Needs Now Is
Apr 21, 2015 2:40am | Drowned In Sound
As an artist dealing in bold, big and beautiful installation pieces as well as the leader of the deliciously oxymoronic Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity! art group, Andy Holden has carved out an appealing niche as Bedfords (only?) renaissance man. While a transition into music may appear more head than heart where some artists are concerned, the fact that The Grubby Mitts have been together in one form or another since their secondary school days throws an instant dampener on such ideas. The fact that his Lost Toy label has also released music by the likes of the frantically excellent Ice, Sea, Dead People also suggests an amount of insight when it comes to banging out a tune.
What nobody would rightly expect is an album quite as majestic, loveable, challenging and outright brilliant as the one were dealing with here. What the World Needs Now is an outlandish, sometimes overwhelming exercise in sonic, thematic world building unlike anything else released thus far this year. In fact that may be an understatement; its hard to recall a record of such delicious complexity that was simultaneously able to offer up anthems alongside the avant-garde in such a convincing, moving fashion.
What The Grubby Mitts seem to be going for here is an aural world of repetition combined with shifting instrumentation, extreme melancholy tempered by childlike optimism a world of late night pub poetry, intergalactic romance, sexual, natural ambiguity and so...
Implodes Ken Camden announces third album for Kranky
Apr 21, 2015 2:20am | Fact Magazine
The Implodes guitarist will release his third album for the Chicago institution.
Ken Camden will release a new album entitled Dream Memory in June. On top of his solo output, Camden is also the guitarist for Implodes, an experimental rock outfit that has released two albums via Kranky in the last few years. Camden has released two of his own albums on the label Lethargy & Repercussions in 2010 and Space Mirror in 2013.
Dream Memory finds Camden once again experimenting with his electric guitar, using “a steel slide and e-bow technique… to bridge the textural gap between guitar and synthesizer,” according to the press release. The LP also utilises an “organic vocal sampling machine” called the Vocaltron, described as a Mellotron for voices.
Kranky will release Ken Camden’s Dream Memory on June 15. Stream album cut ‘Curiosity’ below. [via RA]

The new EP is the first collaborative material from the pair since their debut track ‘The Bong Song’, released on a various artists EP in 2013.
Babicka & Mic Mills Present MBM will be released via Untzz Twelve Inch on May 22. Stream EP cut ‘Lenny’ below.

Its official: Netflix revives Full House for new 13-episode season
Apr 21, 2015 12:02am | Cosequence Of Sound
The Tanner family will in fact reunite for a new season. Appearing on Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Stamos confirmed Netflix has decided to revive Full House for a new 13-episode season.
According to previous reports, the series will be titled Fuller House and star Candace Cameron Bure as D.J. Tanner and Andrea Barber as her best friend, Kimmy Gibbler.
Stamos (Jessie), Bob Saget (Danny), and Dave Coulier (Joey) are all expected to appear in cameo roles on the show, as will several other members of the original cast. Full House creator Jeff Franklin plans to executive produce alongside original EPs Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett.
Full House last aired on television in 1995. In recent years, however, the shows cast members have opened the door for a possible revival. In 2013, Stamos reunited Jesse and the Rippers for an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and last year, much of the cast reunited to sing the Full House theme song at a birthday party for Franklin.
Stamos previously mentioned that he was working on a Full House movie, but it seems the plan has since shifted to a new episodic series.
