The White Stripes Get Behind Me Satan scheduled for first ever vinyl release
Mar 3, 2015 1:17pm | Fact Magazine

Despite Jack White’s well documented vinyl obsession one of his former band’s best album’s has never actually been given the 12-inch treatment until now.

Jack White has done a tremendous amount to popularize vinyl in recent years and it wasn’t that surprising last year when his solo album Lazaretto became the best selling vinyl record in two decades. The vinyl landscape was very different 10 years ago to the point that even a format nut like White had trouble getting The White Stripes’ genre hopping album Get Behind Me Satan released on wax. In fact, the album has never been available on vinyl outside of a few extremely rare (and extremely expensive) test pressings which also feature entirely different artwork.

Now this version of Get Behind Me Satan will be available on Record Store Day just in time for the album’s 10 year anniversary. It will come in a limited edition double-LP with one pressed on red vinyl and the other on white on April 18 (Record Store Day). A standard black vinyl LP will be available later this year.

Check out the track listing for the release below and revisit the Get Behind Me Satan highlight, ‘The Nurse’, which blended marimba and noise rock surprisingly well.

NYC Popfest announces 2015 line-up (The Loft, Darling Buds, Club 8, Veronica Lake, Eternal Summers, Wildhoney & more)
Mar 3, 2015 1:14pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

The Loft

NYC Popfest has just announced the lineup for its 2015 edition which happens May 28 - 311 in venues across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Shows will happen at Cake Shop, Knitting Factory, Cameo, The Bell House and Baby's All Right. Schedule is still TBA but four-day festival passes are on sale now.

Like always it's a mix of bands from around the world, both new and veteran acts. Some of this year's highlights include: The Loft, fronted by Pete Astor and one of the first bands signed to Creation Records; Sweden's Club 8, one of the many bands featuring Labrador Records owner Johan Angergård; C-86 era band The Darling Buds who scored a few college radio hits in the late '80s and early '90s (and who many couldn't tell apart from The Primitives); shortlived Ann Arbor, MI band Veronica Lake who put out records on Spin Art, Simple Machines and Bus Stop and haven't played a show since 1994; The Catenary Wires, the duo featuring Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey of Heavenly and The Tender Trap; and Germany's Brideshead who have been making music since the '90s.

More on the international front: The Spook School, who charmed last year's Popfest crowd, and other UK acts like Young Romance, and

Sam Prekop Weather Vane Video
Mar 3, 2015 1:04pm | StereoGum
Sam Prekop is typically referenced as the lead vocalist of Chicago post-rock OGs the Sea And Cake, but he’s also well-known for the three solo albums he’s released since the late ’90s. “Weather Vane” is the ambient single off of Prekop’s fourth LP, The Republic, which dropped today along with this black and white video […]

D.R.A.M. Cha Cha Video
Mar 3, 2015 12:52pm | StereoGum
There was a period earlier this winter when the only thing that could make me smile was listening to D.R.A.M.’s infectious, genre-bending “Cha Cha.” As the process of making music is slowly co-opted by capitalism, it feels more and more precious to stumble upon an artist who is creating music in their little corner of […]



Check Out Björks Eye-Popping Vulnicura Physical Album Cover
Mar 3, 2015 12:51pm | StereoGum
Björk’s heart-shattering new breakup album Vulnicura came out in January because of an early leak, but it wasn’t supposed to come out until sometime this month. The album miraculously appeared on iTunes, and many of us rushed to buy it. But if you decided to wait for the physical edition to come out, you will […]



Björk shares awesome Vulnicura physical album art
Mar 3, 2015 12:45pm | Fact Magazine

“drum roll please…”

Björk has taken to Facebook to share the first look at the sleeve for the physical release of Vulnicura, which is due out in mid-March.

The image is by Björk and artist Andrew Thomas Huang, who has worked with the singer-songwriter on ‘Mutual Core’ and the forthcoming, Oculus Rift-ready video for ‘Stonemilker’.

A 3D rendering with hints of The Exorcist and Cronenbergian body horror? Sign us up. This is certainly an incentive to buy Vulnicura after the record’s “nightmare” leak, the type of incident investigated by FACT’s Tom Lea.

Yolandi From Die Antwoord Picks A Fight With Drake
Mar 3, 2015 12:35pm | StereoGum
Die Antwoord seemed to be on the verge of climbing to a new tier of celebrity this year with Ninja and Yolandi Visser playing prominent roles in the dystopian sci-fi twee oddity Chappie. Now they’ll definitely be more famous, but not for the right reasons; notorious might be a better word for it. Drake and […]



Bob Dylan Recorded A Second Album Of Sinatra Covers
Mar 3, 2015 12:35pm | StereoGum
Last month, Bob Dylan released Shadows In The Night, a full album of nothing but Frank Sinatra covers. It is absolutely crazy that he did this! Dylan is an all-time great, of course, and apparently he’s been a Sinatra fan for decades, but he must know that his voice sounds like a toad’s death-rattle. The […]
