Pinegrove performs gorgeous acoustic versions of New Friends and The Metronome
May 4, 2016 10:13am | Chart Attack

I dare anyone to listen to Pinegrove's latest album Cardinal and not fall in love with the band. The raw, emotive, and powerful vocals of Evan Stephens Hall bring the gorgeous instrumentation to another level. The music tugs right at your heartstrings. If there's a breakout band in 2016, my bet is on Pinegrove.

YouTube Video

We couldn't pass up the opportunity of getting to witness Evan Stephens Hall perform these songs live, so we brought him to our offices and said "do your thing." Everyone on the floor slowly removed their headphones as his voice echoed throughout the building. It was so jaw-dropping I had double check I hit record.

Above he performs an alternate take on "New Friends," a song from Cardinal, and the beautiful, climactic "The Metronome" below. Take a listen, and you won't regret it.

Pinegrove's album Cardinal is out now on Run For Cover Records.

We’re getting ever-closer to the 2016 edition of Montreal’s long-running Mutek festival.

It was already shaping up to be a must-see event, with more than 80 (!) live performances from over 100 artists, including appearances from FACT favorites Lee Gamble, Aïsha Devi, Peder Mannerfelt, Powell, Colleen, Tim Hecker and more.

For the second year in a row, the festival will spice up the area in front of the Maison Symphonique from Thursday to Saturday from 5PM-11PM (from 3PM on the Saturday).

Mutual Benefit shares lush new song The Hereafter listen
May 4, 2016 9:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

Skip a Sinking Stone, Mutual Benefits follow-up to 2013 debut Love’s Crushing Diamond, is looking more promising than ever. After releasing single “Not For Nothing” and sharing track “Lost Dreamers“, Jordan Lee’s indie baroque project just scored a hat trick with his latest song, “The Hereafter”.

Love’s Crushing Diamond came from a variety of creative sources and inspirations. Lee used this record as a means of reifying his discovery of the world around him, anger at racial injustice in North America, and the breakdown of his relationship. Though contrasting, these elements come together to create raw and unfiltered emotion, and this is certainly not absent from “The Hereafter”.

The fuzzy crackle hidden in the background of “The Hereafter” immediately draws images of playing vinyl on a record player, almost signifying a wish for simpler times. Lee’s demure voice strains with sadness as he gently opens the song with, “What’s to say?/ When we break in our skin?” We most commonly use “heartbreak” to describe how we feel upon dissolving a romantic relationship, but Lee’s lyrics redefine that overwhelming emotional pain as something that spreads throughout our whole body. As other elements of double vocal tracking and synths layer over the opening piano, what Lee creates is a lush and ...


Berlins electronic vanguard spike a grand social occasion with confusion and complexity at Decession
May 4, 2016 9:42am | Fact Magazine

With performances from Amnesia Scanner, Bill Kouligas, T.C.F., Physical Therapy and Claire Tolan, Decession at Berlin’s Volksbühne on Saturday felt like a grand social occasion for the city’s electronic scene, reports Lisa Blanning.

If you ask older members of Berlins music community what they think about the large number of foreign expats that come to live and work in the city, youll very often get a positive response. Its invigorated the scene, theyll say, or perhaps theyll note how its helped to make Berlin part of the international conversation. Most of the time, those older musicians came from elsewhere in Germany themselves, although they tend to have arrived much sooner after the fall of the Wall. Modern-day Berlin has been a relatively cheap western capital for over two decades, consequently welcoming a large number of creatives living here either temporarily or indefinitelyfirst from Germany, then from all over Europe (thank you, EU freedom of movement), and finally, as both the reputation and artistic community of the city grew, the world.

This explains why the main line-up of Decession, a large-scale multimedia happening featuring brand new commissions from six influential figures within the Berlin-based electro-pop avant-garde, included not one German musician (although there is one German DJ and one German collaborating artist. Not all of the collaborating ...
