The Rolling Stones announce North American stadium tour
Mar 31, 2015 7:57am | Cosequence Of Sound
This summer, The Rolling Stones will embark on their first full-fledged North American tour in eight years.
The 15-city Zip Code tour kicks off May 24th in San Diego and runs through mid-July. Each performance promises a set of greatest hits and “special gems” from the band’s iconic catalog. Fans can also look forward to a unique stage set-up that extends deep into the audience, as well as massive video screens and special effects.
Coinciding with the tour, the band will release a deluxe reissue of their 1971 album Sticky Fingers. (The tour’s name is actually a play on the album’s Andy Warhol-designed cover.) Due out May 25th, the reissue will feature “a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones audio outtakes,” including an outtake of “Brown Sugar” featuring Eric Clapton, an acoustic rendition of Wild Horses, and five tracks recorded live at London’s Roundhouse in 1971. Pre-orders are now ongoing through iTunes.

Watch Van Halen Make Their First US TV Performance With David Lee Roth On Jimmy Kimmel
Mar 31, 2015 7:54am | StereoGum
David Lee Roth rejoined Van Halen, righting a longstanding historic injustice, in 2007. But somehow, Diamond Dave had not appeared on TV with his old band until last night, when they were guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live. With the band performing on the show, Kimmel shut down Hollywood Boulevard and put a huge stage on it, and they probably needed a stage that size to fit Alex Van Halen's drum kit on there. Judging by the performance they gave, it's entirely possible that Roth has lost his sense of rhythm completely somewhere through the years. But he's still one of the great clownish presences in rock history, and he's so much fun to watch. (He wore a giant nose bandage on the show, which somehow made him look even sketchier. It was great!) On the show, the band trotted out a couple of classics, "Panama" and "Runnin' With The Devil." Watch both below.
Mokonas brilliant Nocturnal Meditations radio shows made available for the first time
Mar 31, 2015 7:50am | Fact Magazine
If you happen to be awake between midnight and 1am on a Monday night (GMT), then you may have stumbled upon Mokona‘s Nocturnal Meditations radio show.
If you’re asleep like you should be at those times, then you won’t have: unlike most of Radar Radio‘s broadcasts the shows aren’t uploaded as podcasts. If you miss them, you miss them, basically.
Some background: Mokona tends to keep himself to himself, but has low-key released some of the coldest tracks of the last few years. ‘Stewardess Rush’, from Templar Sound’s first compilation, was a favourite of Ben UFO’s, while ‘Untitled’, featuring Ruff Sqwad’s Rapid, was a grime anthem for insomniacs (the same people who’re awake for Noctural Meditations, we guess). [disclaimer: Templar Sound is a label operated independently by FACT’s Australian editor Aidan Bennison]
Mokona’s music has always been heavy on atmosphere, and on Nocturnal Meditations, he shows the full breadth of his ambient collection, from new age tomes to video game OSTs. After weeks of FACT (and plenty of others) bugging Mokona to make these radio recordings available to hear again, he relented. Below, stream a playlist of some of his favourite Nocturnal Meditations epsiodes – the first time they’ve been available for playback – and read our Q&A with...
My Morning Jacket Spring (Among The Living)
Mar 31, 2015 7:41am | StereoGum
My Morning Jacket have shared "Spring (Among The Living)," the second single from the band's upcoming seventh studio album. Like lead single "Big Decisions" before it, the track is accompanied by a slow-motion visualizer that shows off some pretty striking images of the eponymous waterfall from the album title. (Which is apparently Yosemite's Vernal Fall, though this looks like some pretty heavily stylized footage of it.) This song was also featured in the album trailer that MMJ put out earlier this month. Listen to the new track below.

Tidal is here, and it looks a lot like Spotify
Mar 31, 2015 7:26am | Fact Magazine
Can you tell the difference?
Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service relaunched yesterday with a press conference attended by all 16 of its celebrity backers. However, the exclusives so far have been paltry, leaving many wondering if it’s worth the subscription fee.
Tidal’s interface also looks a lot like Spotify. As you can see from the image above and below, the only real difference is Tidal’s choice of blue as a contrasting colour compared to Spotify’s green. It should be noted that the service has looked like this since before Jay Z purchased the company, but given that he’s positioning Tidal as an alternative, looking a lot like the primary competition isn’t a good look.
If you need a reminder as to what Spotify looks like, there’s an image of the interface below that looks a lot like the image at the top.

Watch Mac DeMarco Breeze Through Let Her Go On Conan
Mar 31, 2015 7:24am | StereoGum
Mac DeMarco brought his goofy antics and trademark toothy grin to last night's episode of Conan. He performed a high-energy rendition of his breezy Salad Days track "Let Her Go." It also looks like the singer stumbled across a giant O'Brien head backstage, and was rightfully confused judging by the look on his face in this Instagram he shared yesterday. Watch the performance below.
South London club Crucifix Lane forced to close
Mar 31, 2015 7:18am | Fact Magazine
South London club Crucifix Lane will close after the Easter Weekend.
As with Cable, located close to Crucifix Lane in the London Bridge arches, the closure has been forced by Network Rail’s expansion of London Bridge train station.
The venue has existed under different names for over 20 years, hosting shows by the Chemical Brothers as early as 1994 as part of Andrew Weatherall’s Sabresonic weekly. It opened in its present guise at the beginning of 2011, hosting parties by Night Slugs, Bugged Out, Whirl-y-Gig, Harlem Nights and more.
A press release from the club remarks that “the establishment is at it again … Crucifix Lane is the next London nightclub to fall foul of rich redevelopers and callous gentrification. Just around the corner from Cable (a club that suffered the same fate not so long ago) and in the same set of railway arches, Network Rail are coming in to batten down the hatches and take control of the space to make way for London Bridge Station expansion.”
“This is yet another sad and shameful example of the little people getting pushed aside at the expense of Londons rich culture”, it continues. “The upshot is that the famed arches of London Bridge, which have for so long been a bustling creative nest in the heart of London, are soon to be just another faceless corporate facade.”
The club’s final parties will take place imminently –...
Stream Semteks growling Bad Teeth, forthcoming on Niche n Bump
Mar 31, 2015 6:43am | Fact Magazine
The latest release on Niche ‘n’ Bump, following drops from Beneath, Spatial and Samrai, comes from Semtek.
Semtek has slowly but surely carved out a reputation as one of the UK’s most reliable house and techno acts, both through his own productions and his work running the Don’t Be Afraid label (home of Mr. Beatnick’s excellent Sun Goddess trilogy, as well as music by DJ Bone and more). On ‘Bed Teeth’, Semtek takes things dark and gently psychedelic – there’s no OTT dynamic swings, no dramatic builds, just atmospherics that will sweep you away in the right settings, and one hell of a growling bassline. Nods to UK Funky in those stabs too, surely?
‘Bad Teeth’ / ‘John of Worcester’ will be released in mid-April. Stream the A-side below, and pre-order it here.
