Chicago drill, Cooly G and swampy techno: the weeks best free mixes
Mar 27, 2015 1:01pm | Fact Magazine

Each week, FACTs John Twells and Chris Kelly trawl through the untamed world of free mixes, radio specials and live blends so you dont have to.

We’ve got quite the selection for you this week, with all-girl drill from Chicago courtesy of Meaghan Garvey, sunken techno from one of the scene’s veteran DJs, sizzling UK house (and Haus) shakes and loads more.

Beginning July 10th, new albums will be released on Fridays, and not Tuesdays
Mar 27, 2015 12:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Last month, it was announced that Friday would become the global release date for all new music releases. The move was put into motion by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) in hopes of preventing music piracy. Now, the very first worldwide Friday release date has been revealed to be July 10, 2015.

The compelling logic of Friday is that it is the day that best suits consumers the highest footfall in physical retail stores and the highest levels of purchasing traffic online,” the IFPI wrote last month of the big industry shift. “Its also the time of greatest activity on social media, helping amplify the buzz around new releases everywhere. And the weekend is a time for greater spontaneous purchasing.

Still, news of the singular release date hasn’t been warmly received by all. “I fear this move will also lead to a market in which the mainstream dominates, and the niche, which can be tomorrows mainstream, is further marginalised,” said Beggars Group founder Martin Millis. “I fear it will further cement the dominance of the few — and that that is exactly what it is intended to do.

Play It Again Sam [PIAS] co-founder Michel Lambot voiced similar concerns. “If a global chart reigns supreme, development artists and local artists will have to get used to hearing the voice of America, everywhere,” he wrote in a blog post, adding, “Big money, big global campai...

This Weeks 5 Best Music Videos: Dan Deacon, Run The Jewels and more
Mar 27, 2015 12:44pm | Chart Attack
This week, we hosted a roundtable discussion heralding the golden age of the animated music video. Then, Dan Deacon dropped this masterclass of animation done by 9 artists, including Chad VanGaalen (who was in our panel). But it was a strong week for live action videos too, both weird and funny and staid and thought-provoking.

Dan Deacon, "When I Was Done Dying"

Sne brave team of 9 animators (including Chad VanGaalen) tackled the song individually to create a morphing, twisted, sometimes literal, and eyegasmic journey into the most confusing and best acid trip you've ever had. At times it perfectly captures this generation's inability to stay focused, and at others it illustrates your dreams of drifting to a new world.

QT, "Hey QT"

This is pretty much it: starkly bright pinks and whites, self-consciously blank dance routines, and a retro-futuristic vibe that I think I last saw in an Eiffel 65 video. Sold!

Run The Jewels, "Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)"

Director AG Rojas pictures a police-civilian brawl that lasts all day and all night; so long, in fact, that they forget why they're entangled. As if they, the police officer and the unarmed young black man, are just chemically opposed a predator and his prey.

Charli XCX, "Famous"

Charli XCX taps funnyman-director Eric Wareheim to explore the peril...


Simon Amstell performing new show 'To Be Free' on US tour, including five NYC shows (dates)
Mar 27, 2015 12:42pm | Brooklyn Vegan

British comedian Simon Amstell will be back in the US next month with his new show To Be Free where he explores "freedom, joy, love, death, adventure, art, peace, sex, regret, success, eating, suffering, dreaming, healing, forgiving and everything in between." If you caught his Numb shows in 2012 you know he's a smart, thoughtful and very funny guy -- and maybe you saw his "work in progress" shows last year. A few recent videos of Amstell are below.

His tour brings him once again to NYC's Theatre 80 from April 14-18 and tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Death Grips I Break Mirrors With My Face In The United States Video
Mar 27, 2015 12:41pm | StereoGum
Death Grips have shared another video from Jenny Death, the second disc of their double-album The Powers That B. This time it's the frantic electro-noise-rap rave-up "I Break Mirrors With My Face In The United States," following "On GP" last week. The clip is basically just an insane MC Ride selfie, yet it's still highly engaging. Watch.



SBTRKT FLAREtWO
Mar 27, 2015 12:28pm | StereoGum
SBTRKT didn't wait long to drop new music after last fall's Wonder Where We Land. Only a few months after the release he premiered six new songs on a takeover of Benji B's BBC Radio 1 show. And while Wonder pursued a smoother, playful bent among its murky electronics, today's new "FLAREtWO" is jagged and discordant. Hosts of internet producers have attempted to copy SBTRKT's anonymous mystery and evolving, off-kilter production style, but he stay always manages to stay one step ahead. No word yet on whether this is the beginning of a new project or just a one-off track. Either way, it's a great listen for releasing tension after a long week. Listen below.



Young Guv Ripe 4 Luv Video
Mar 27, 2015 12:28pm | StereoGum
On the side, the Fucked Up guitarist and former No Warning frontman Ben Cook records shivery, synthy power pop under the name Young Guv. He released his Ripe 4 Luv album a little while ago. The new video for the title track, from director Danielle Nemet, is made entirely of black-and-white footage of British boxers training for next year's Summer Olympics. It has the odd effect of turning "Ripe 4 Luv" into a Rocky-movie training-montage song. Check it out below.



Chief Keef Fans Love To Record Themselves Turning Up To Faneto
Mar 27, 2015 12:21pm | StereoGum
Chief Keef's biggest hit is undoubtedly "I Don't Like," the song that went viral, got a star-studded Kanye West remix, and made Keef a hip-hop household name. But Chicago street blog Kollege Kid (via The Fader) argues that "Faneto," which first appeared on Keef's October 2014 mixtape Back From The Dead 2 and is earmarked for his upcoming album Bang 3, has now surpassed "I Don't Like." That sounds crazy to me, but they offer some compelling evidence: a 62-minute compilation called Chief Keef Faneto: The Movie that's nothing but a montage of fans (starting with A$AP Rocky, pictured) turning up to "Faneto." Mostly selfies. Watch below.



Know Your Beach Bands
Mar 27, 2015 12:20pm | StereoGum
In the mid-'00s, we witnessed a torrent of new bands with "wolf" in their names. Among the acts with lupine roots were Wolf Parade, Wolfmother, We Are Wolves, Sea Wolf, Wolf & Cub, and more. It got old, as trends do, and we reached Canis lupus critical mass in 2009 with Wolf Gang. The gentler onslaught of the Deers, Deer Tick, Deerhunter, the Dear Hunter, etc. happened pretty much concurrently, by the way. A decade later, indie bands aren't as interested in embracing their animalistic tendencies. The only way to tame the beast within is to hit the dunes, swallow the sun, and scamper in endless blue waters. In 2015, it's all about the beach. But there's a difference between groups with beach imagery (Best Coast, Wavves, Surfer Blood) and those that fully cannonball in and include the word "beach" in their names. The past couple of years have brought a barrage of such bands. With a new Brian Wilson album (featuring Al Jardine) out next month and a biopic that just premiered at SXSW, now's an especially good time to round up these young crews of sandy bums in hopes of sharing in their sun-soaked zen. Of course, not all of them are sprinkled with sunshine. Some are downright frosty and jagged. But there are many of them, so you may have had as much trouble as we did telling them apart until now. Catch the wave.
