Fear You're Missing Out On Great Records and Reads? Subscribe to DiS
Sep 1, 2014 6:11am | Drowned In Sound

Over the past few years FOMO (the fear of missing out) has been a "trending topic", with various websites, newspapers, and magazines posting click-bait think-pieces about this modern phenomenon. GQ went one step further offering up some helpful cures to this malady.

Whilst FOMO clearly isn't as debilitating as pediophobia (fear of mannequins) or coulrophobia (clowns!), and we doubt anyone is kept awake worrying that they missed our review of the new Interpol album (which is very very good!), we are increasingly aware that things get lost. Like you, we read have sites we like and have acts we love that we'd quite like to know have a new record out, and whether it's any good, and what they have to say about it.

To be fair, we kinda don't blame some of you who only dropping by a couple of times a year to peruse our Recommended Records section, playlists and end of year listicles for a bit of listening guidance.

Of course, you could follow DiS on Google+, Twitter (Follow @DrownedinSound) and Facebook (facebook.com/drownedinsound), however, sadly it's quite likely you will miss our updates amid all the baby/burger updates, ice buckets, quizzes and all of those "opinions" about call centres and Dr Who.

Earlier this year, we decided that it's high time we went back to doing a monthly mailouts to help you digest what we've been banging on about for the past month or so. Sign up below and you will get a monthly playlist, some record recom...

DFA Records deny that James Murphy is working with New Order
Sep 1, 2014 5:13am | Fact Magazine

Sound of Sumner.

Cheery news for a miserable Monday – two generations of dance-rock royalty may well be joining forces. In a video interview with Consequence of Sound, Bernard Sumner has heavily hinted that New Order have been collaborating with quondam LCD Soundsystem leader and Despacio man James Murphy.

When asked whether a Murphy collaboration might ever be on the cards, Sumner replied: “I can’t talk about any of that just yet, but there is news, we’re in the process.” Which, considering all those disingenuous Arcade Fire denials a few years back, pretty much constitutes proof positive in our book.

Exciting as a collaboration with New Order might be, it’s fairly pedestrian news compared to Murphys most recent project – 400+ hours of music with IBM, turning data sourced from US Open tennis matches into . Sumner will release his autobiography, Chapter And Verse (New Order, Joy Division And Me), on September 25.

Update: DFA Records have issued a spiky tweet denying the reports.

FACT mix 458: Kevin Saunderson
Sep 1, 2014 5:04am | Fact Magazine

For the next seven days on FACT, we’re celebrating Rave Week. 

From legends of the dance to the provincial kids keeping hardcore alive in 2014, we’ll be running a series of features toasting rave music in all of its giddy, glorious forms.

First off, we’ve got a mix from Kevin Saunderson. One third of the celebrated Belleville Three (in short, the guys that invented, and then popularised techno – Saunderson, Derrick May and Juan Atkins), Saunderson remains one of dance music’s favourite sons, regularly playing festivals and helping hone the skills of his producer son, Danitez Saunderson.

Later this month, FACT will be co-hosting a stage at London’s Ceremony Festival (a new project by the team behind Found). We’ve got some of house and techno’s greatest ever names on it, from Saunderson’s Inner City project and pioneering DJ Todd Terry to second wave Chi-town hero DJ Sneak and skipmaster Grant Nelson. For tickets and more information about Ceremony, head over here, and get in the mood for both the festival and the (rave) week ahead with Saunderson’s session for FACT below.

For more Saunderson on FACT, check his Record Shopping episode for FACT TV.

Julio Bashmore unveils new single, Simple Love; listen here
Sep 1, 2014 4:33am | Fact Magazine

Simple pleasures from camp Bashmore. 

Last we heard from the Bristol producer, he was reactivating his Velour project with Hyetal. He’s now premiered a new solo single, Simple Love, which got its maiden play on Annie Macs BBC Radio 1 show last on Sunday.

Those who’ve been sniffy about Bashmores recent output are much more likely to be on board with this one – a misty deep house track with echoes of 2010s career-best Footsteppin. Vocals come courtesy of J’Danna.

The track is reportedly plucked from Bashores debut album, which is now expected to drop in February 2014. Earlier this year, we collared Bashmore to talk about his favourite record - Michael Jackson’s ‘Speed Demon’.


DiSection: Simian Ghost 'The Veil' album track by track
Sep 1, 2014 3:47am | Drowned In Sound

Simian Ghost's new album, The Veil, is out on September 8th 2014. The eighteen tracks are a wonderful spectrum of supremely catchy miserabilism inspired by Brian Wilson, Yo La Tengo and Broadcast.

The band sent DiS an exclusive track by track commentary, looking into the influences and lyrical inspirations for the album...

Stream The Veil


Float is a nod to Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys, both musically and lyrically. I actually wrote the core of this song in my sleep, right at the end of the recording sessions. I remember hearing it in this weird dream, I cant really remember it exactly, there was something about the ocean and this melody was playing. I woke up and had a guitar right next to my bed, so I immediately found the chords and made a voice memo of it on my phone. This is not something I say to sound cool or artsy, I actually write a lot of music in my sleep. Most of it is terrible though.

The lyrics are very straight forward. Its basically about how we all need to sort of give in and allow ourselves to be carried sometimes, because no one makes it alone. Were flock animals. You can see it as an invitation to whoevers listening to just sit down, relax and let their minds be carried for a while in this music. We then decided to let it start with waves, theres some pretty straight forward symbolism there as well. It made for a pretty opener I think.

After the first song dr...
