Feb 12, 2016 8:36am | Brooklyn Vegan

Kanye

Yesterday, Kanye West debuted his new album The Life of Pablo at MSG, and one particular that took the internet by storm was "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous." First TMZ reported that Taylor Swift approved of it in advance, and then Jon Caramanica revealed that her spokesperson actually said she "declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a song misogynistic message." Now Kanye has responded in a series of numbered tweets:

Kanye West says Famous lyric about Taylor Swift was her idea
Feb 12, 2016 8:26am | Fact Magazine

Why hasn’t someone taken his Twitter password away yet?

Another day of T.L.O.P. promo, another Kanye West Twitter story: Earlier today, we reported that Taylor Swift declined approval of West’s ‘Famous’, which includes the lyric: “I feel like Taylor and I could still have sex.” West has now taken to Twitter to dismantle this story and describe some of the creative process behind it, so to speak.

Read his tweets below, which detail his feelings about the watering down of rap, as well as some reflection on last night’s Yeezy Season 3 event.

Ty Segall scares the shit out of Colbert with wild performance of Candy Sam watch
Feb 12, 2016 7:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

In January, Ty Segall released Emotional Mugger, his eighth studio album under his own name. Last night, the prolific garage rocker swung by the Late Show for his first late-night appearance in support of the LP. His faced covered in face paint, the eery album artwork projected in the background,  Segall and his band the Muggers delivered a fiery rendition of the track “Candy Sam”. Near the end of the performance, Segall began handing out actual candy to the audience before ultimately collapsing to the ground. It was all pretty wild to say the least.

Catch the replay below.

Segall is currently touring the US behind Emotional Mugger; find his itinerary here.



FKA twigs rare debut EP1 back on vinyl
Feb 12, 2016 7:30am | Fact Magazine

Originally posted on The Vinyl Factory

Dont pay silly prices, a re-press is finally here.

Originally self-released in 2012 in a painfully limited edition of just a few hundred (Discogs has the number at 200, Amazon at 500), FKA twigs debut EP1 is set to return on vinyl.

A lot has changed for twigs since then, with the success of subsequent EPs and her Mercury-nominated debut album pushing the value of the original up to around £150 a copy on Discogs.

With pre-orders listed on Amazon, Fat Beats and New On Vinyl, the four-track EP reissue is due to drop on April 8 via Young Turks.

Last year twigs released her M3LL155X EP with four self-directed videos.

Feb 12, 2016 6:50am | Fact Magazine

Kanye was happy to share the spotlight at the Yeezy Season 3 show last night.

During the event he welcomed the arrival of 18-year-old Brooklyn hopeful Desiigner into the G.O.O.D Music label fold, which is currently headed up by president Pusha T.

New York City, your very own Desiigner straight from Brooklyn just signed to G.O.O.D. Music, said Kanye, while standing next to his new signee.

Desiigner pops up twice on Kanye’s freshly-baked seventh album The Life of Pablo, which Pusha T confirmed in this tweet.

Last month we chatted to Pusha T about a new chapter for G.O.O.D. Music.

Hear Gwen Stefanis new disco-pop track Make Me Like You
Feb 12, 2016 5:23am | Fact Magazine

Gwen Stefani cements her comeback with another new track.

Following the release of emotive ballad ‘Used To Love You’ late last year, she’s revved up the beat for ‘Make Me Like You’, a three-minute hit of disco-infused bubblegum pop.

“I was free before I met you / I was broken but free,” sings a newly-empowered, post-divorce Gwen on the new track, produced by Da Robin and Matt Man.

She’ll be debuting it at the Grammys, where it will be acted out, filmed and broadcast live during a four-minute ad break.

‘Make Me Like You’ is the second offering from Stefani’s forthcoming album This Is What the Truth Feels Like, which is due out March 18. It’s her first full-length record in 10 years, following 2006s The Sweet Escape.

Stream Prins Thomas epic ambient album Principe Del Norte
Feb 12, 2016 5:07am | Fact Magazine

Prins Thomas’ fourth solo album is voyage into deep space.

First off, could there be a better title for an Ibiza-via-Oslo ambient album by the king of cosmic disco than Principe Del Norte? Unlikely. Kicking off with eight minutes of soaring euphoria on ‘A1’, the album’s nine tracks clock in at nearly 100 minutes and explore the kind of dosed-up, spaced-out territory explored by minimal and synth pioneers like Terry Riley, Steve Hillage and Manuel Göttsching in the 60s and 70s.

Settle in via the NPR stream below and look out for the 4xLP album on February 19 through Smalltown Supersound.

Hear Prins Thomas’ take on the art of DJing and why he’s still “kicking against the pricks” in our 2015 interview.
