Hyperdub announce new album from footwork crew Teklife, Next Life; all profits to go to DJ Rashads family
Oct 1, 2014 8:18am | Fact Magazine

Chicago footwork crew Teklife announce their first Hyperdub release.

Teklife is as golden a brand as you’ll find in Chicago footwork – the label and collective, spearheaded by DJ Spinn and the sadly deceased DJ Rashad, have been behind many of the scene’s best full-lengths, and arguably served as the sound’s principal ambassadorial face during footwork’s rise to global prominence.

Next Life will compile new material from the collective, including work from DJ Rashad. Plenty of familiar footwork elders appear: DJ Spinn, RP Boo, Traxman, Manny and Gantman all contribute. A host of newer names will also feature, with DJ Earl, Taye and Boylan among the newer breed, and a smattering of non-Chicago (Durban, Tripletrain) and European producers (Durban, DJ Paypal, Feloneezy) are also represented.

Hyperdub have confirmed that all profits from sales of the CD will go to Rashads son, Chad; the disc is expected in the coming months. As reported, the label will host a huge Teklife night on October 11.

Tracklisting:
DJ Spinn & Taso – ‘Burn That Kush’
DJ Earl & DJ Taye – ‘Do This Again’
DJ Taye x Heavee x DJ Phil – ‘The Matrixx’
DJ Phil – ‘Godz House’
DJ Tre – ‘DNB Spaceout’
Traxman – ‘Sit Ya Self ...



Jessica Lange Will Cover Lana Del Rey On American Horror Story: Freak Show
Oct 1, 2014 8:15am | StereoGum

In retrospect, it’s a bit weird that American Horror Story devoted an entire season to witches without involving Lana Del Rey in any way. Well, that particular oversight is about to be corrected. The forthcoming circus-themed season is called American Horror Story: Freak Show, and it will feature two-time Oscar winner Jessica Lange singing a Lana Del Rey song. As Just Jared reports, series creator Ryan Murphy tweeted this to a fan who said the coming season looked too scary: “The clown is scary, true. But dont you wanna see Jessica Lange sing a Lana Del Rey song?” He hasn’t said what song it’ll be yet, but fingers crossed for “Fucked My Way Up To The Top.” The season starts 10/15 on FX.

Stream Allo Darlins new album We Come From The Same Place
Oct 1, 2014 7:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

Allo Darlin’ will release their third studio album, We Come From The Same Place, on October 7th via Slumberland Records. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in full at Pitchfork.

Serving as the follow-up to the indie pop group’s 2012 record, Europe, the 12-track effort was partially inspired by a series of life events experienced by singer Elizabeth Morris, who fell in love, got married, and moved to Florence, Italy.

“The songs were written very quickly, during a period when I found writing songs very easy, whereas I often find songwriting very difficult,” Morris said in a press release. “Some of the songs were written so fast I can’t even really remember writing them. The songs were a joy to write, and writing them made me feel better about lots of things.”

Guitarist Paul Rains noted that the LP was also influenced by Allo Darlin’s time spent on the road: “We’ve used three years of touring to try and get some of that sweat and grime and togetherness and sweetness and anxiety onto a record.”

We Come From The Same Place is preceded by the singles “Romance and Adventure” and “Bright Eyes”. Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.

We Come From The Same Place Tracklist:
01. Heartbeat
02. Kings and Queens
03. We Come From The Same Place
04. Angela
05. Bright Ey...


What's going on Wednesday? (Bryan Ferry, Black Lips & King Khan, Blake Mills, Delta Spirit, The Blow, Ed Schrader, more)
Oct 1, 2014 7:44am | Brooklyn Vegan

King Khan at LPR in June (more by Chris La Putt)

Blake Mills at Capitol Theatre in 2012 (more by David Andrako)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Blake Mills, yMusic @ Le Poisson Rouge
When not working and touring with Fiona Apple, Blake Mills makes his own accomplished blues folk. His new album, Heigh Ho, just came out and tonight's the release show. It's sold out, but if you bought a ticket you got a copy of the record as a bonus.

Bryan Ferry, Dawn Landes @ Beacon Theatre
He's been battling a throat infection which has forced him to cancel a few recent shows, but the onetime Roxy Music singer and still-suave dude will be playing tonight's show. He's got a guest-filled album on the way soon.

The Black Lips, King Khan & BBQ Show, LiveFastDie @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This two-night NYC stand (yesterday at Irving Plaza) sounds like trouble -- in a good way. A double-dose of party-friendly garage and soul, get in it.

Jack and Eliza, Larry and the Babes @ Baby's All Right
If you miss the winsome, early days of Slow Club, this Brooklyn duo make a similarly sweet sound. Tonight's the release show for their debut EP. Early show, over before 9 PM.

Team Spirit, Sunflower Bean, Bluffing @ Baby's All Right

FACT to host stage at Bristols Simple Things Festival with Actress, Zomby, Happa and Impey
Oct 1, 2014 7:41am | Fact Magazine

Bristol’s Simple Things festival returns this year – and we’re hosting a stage.

FACT will be taking over Coroners Court, Stokes Croft with some of electronic music’s most unique figures. Actress, the artist behind masterpieces like Hazyville and Splazsh will bring his cloudy take on techno, hip-hop and more to the stage, while Zomby, a past collaborator with Actress, joins him. Expect everything from Atlanta hip-hop to jungle, via – we expect – a shower of exclusives from his Cult label.

Techno prodigy Happa, fresh from a FACT mix, will bring the breakneck 4×4, while the line-up is finished by Impey, an up-and-coming grime producer whose ‘Bangclap’ has become a lowkey anthem this year.

That’s not the only thing to see at Simple Things, of course: the full festival features Mogwai, Caribou, DJ Harvey, Jessy Lanza, SOPHIE, DJ Sprinkles and many more.

For full information on Simple Things head here, and for tickets, head here.
