From monastery to Bandcamp via hospital bed: meet Tatsumi, the skateboarding monk making brilliant electronic music
Apr 24, 2014 7:00am | Fact Magazine
This is a story that’s in equal parts sad, strange and beautiful.
A couple of years ago I got invited to a showing of a film about music in Japan called KanZeOn; I think it was FACT’s Laurent Fintoni, a long time lover of Japanese music and culture, who put me on to it originally. It turned out to be amazing, a dreamy semi-documentary meditation on the art of listening, featuring some fascinating characters including a lady in a tall hat who plays the Sho mouth organ along to the sounds of water, a teacher in a Buddhist university, some preternaturally sprightly old ladies, and a hip-hop monk.
This monk goes by the name of Tatsumi, and in KanZeOn we see him ringing the gongs and bells in his monastery, instructing said old ladies in scratch mixing and the meaning of hip-hop, and taking a microphone and amp out onto mountaintops and rope bridges through forests to beatbox along with the natural world. He also appeared at the showing of the film at the ICA, beatboxing, DJing and generally charming everyone there.
I stayed in touch with the film’s makers Tim Grabham and Neil Cantwell, who gave me some lovely field recordings and a new track for an article, then last month I got a bittersweet email from Cantwell. It contained a link for an album’s worth of amazing electronic music that it turned out Tatsumi had been making in his monastery bedroom studio: really unique stuff that s...

To Rococo Rot joined by Arto Lindsay on first album in four years, Instrument
Apr 24, 2014 5:58am | Fact Magazine
After unveiling a brand new track on FACT last week, electronica boffins To Rococo Rot have announced their first album in four years.
The Berlin-Düsseldorf trio return to the City Slang label with Instrument, the follow-up to 2010s Speculation and the group’s eighth album so far.
Brothers Robert and Ronald Lippok and Stefan Schneider are joined by No Wave pioneer Arto Lindsay on three of the tracks, expanding their musical vocabulary with vocals from Lindsay, as heard on brooding album opener ‘Many Descriptions’.
“We wanted to make clear that something is different,” said Robert Lippok. “I think maybe weve come in a way back to where we started. Weve been through a lot of experimenting, buying new gear, trying this and that with electronic and non-electronic stuff.”
Instrument is due out on July 21, and to mark its release the group have lined up a show on the same date at Londons Café Oto.
Catch up with previously unveiled track ‘Pro Model’ and hear ‘Many Descriptions’ below and the album tracklist underneath.

Slayer announce first album since 2009: download new track Implode
Apr 24, 2014 5:52am | Fact Magazine
Slayer will release their first album since 2009′s World Painted Blood this year.
The metal legends have announced the news with a new track, ‘Implode’, which can be downloaded on their website. The as-yet-untitled album will be the band’s first in over two decades not to be released through Rick Rubin’s American Recordings.
In Tom Araya’s words, ”Rick has played a huge role in our career, we’ve made some great albums with him. But today is a new day, record companies don’t play the kind of role they once did, and we really like the idea of going out on our own, connecting directly with our fans, and Nuclear Blast is fired up about taking on that challenge with us.” [via The Quietus]
The exact personnel on the album remains a mystery, of course: Dave Lombardo was publicly fired from the group after a pay dispute in February 2013, and Paul Bostaph is currently drumming for the group. Later that year, guitarist Jeff Hanneman died of liver failure – it’s reported that this new album may feature material written by him before his death.
