Venetian Snares announces Last Step archival package
Mar 1, 2015 5:47pm | Fact Magazine

The IDM icon will release a batch of archival material from his Last Step alias.

Aaron Funk, better known as Venetian Snares, will release his Lost Sleep EP this week. The EP collects material recorded by Funk under the banner of Last Step, the heavily acid-tinged alias that has previously delivered a trio of LPs for Planet Mu.

According to Funk, the machine-made tracks on the new release were written around the same time as his Sleep LP, which was released in 2012. According to the producer, the EP was “produced in the liminal zone between wakefulness and its opposite.”

“The third of March is 303 day and here’s some acid from my collection to celebrate!” reads a preface for the EP. “These were made on the same setup I had for Sleep at some point after I made those tracks. Can’t remember making them but they sound really nice. March 3, 1982 was a Wednesday.”

You can check the full tracklist and stream ‘Loni Anderson’ below. [via Resident Advisor]

Björks next music video to be available on Oculus Rift
Mar 1, 2015 5:01pm | Fact Magazine

The video is for Vulnicura track ‘Stonemilker’.

The video for Björk’s next single will be available to view on the Oculus Rift virtual reality device. Björk is no stranger to innovative technologies, having released her Biophilia album as an app in 2013. Last year, that app became the first to be added to MoMA’s permanent collection.

Speaking to Fast Company, the Icelandic singer spoke about this month’s MoMA retrospective, her decision to keep Vulnicura off Spotify and the upcoming film clip for her track ‘Stonemilker’. The video for ‘Stonemilker’ is directed by Björk’s frequent collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang, and has been shot for Oculus Rift.

When quizzed about the intersection between music and technology, Björk said, “It cant just be working with the gadget for the sake of the gadget. But also its about budgets. You can do apps cheaply. Apps was kind of punk, actually. It was like starting a punk band again. Filming for Oculus Rift is not.”

No further details have been released regarding the video for ‘Stonemilker’. Björk’s MoMa retrospective begins on March 8. [via The Verge]

Faith No More Superhero
Mar 1, 2015 3:55pm | StereoGum
Faith No More have shared the second single from Sol Invictus, their first album in 18 years. They’ve been slowly building up to their new record, and this is the first new track we’ve heard from them since their Record Store Day single “Motherfucker.” “‘Superhero’ was one of those where it was definitely a superhero […]



Faith No More premieres new single Superhero listen
Mar 1, 2015 3:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Faith No More will return with their first new album in 18 years, Sol Invictus, on May 19th through Reclamation Records and Ipecac Recordings. Today, the seminal rock outfit has shared their new single “Superhero”, appropriately premiered on Marvel.com.

The band’s bassist Bill Gould grew up a fan of Marvel’s Silver Surfer and Nova, so he was chosen to sit down with the website to talk about the track and the new album. Gould said the song came together as much of Faith No More’s music does: visually.

‘Superhero’ actually just started from the sound of the song, where it has these pounding drums and it has like this throbbing kind of pulse, and we just called it the Superhero song. Because, a lot of the ways we write we visualize things.

Actually this is kind of interesting because were probably a unique band in a way. While we write music were talking about chord changes and different things like that. What we do is we describe scenes together, and we can visualize the scene and the music kind of comes. We kind of make movie scenes for movies that dont exist. ‘Superhero’ was one of those where it was definitely a superhero comic, I mean that was just the vibe of the song, and when Mike came to me writing words about it, we were already calling it Superhero. So its kind of like in the DNA; its a comic strip.”

Mar 1, 2015 2:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

The Mountain Goats have shared a new song from their forthcoming concept album about pro wrestling, Beat the Champ. Entitled “Heel Turn 2″, the track premiered during the most recent episode of the podcast “Welcome to Night Vale”.

As listeners of the faux newscast know, host Cecil introduces the weather towards the end of each episode, but never actually gets to the forecast. Instead, there’s always a musical interlude. In episode 63, “There Is No part 1: Part 2″, that interlude was “Heel Turn 2″.

You can snag the podcast for free via iTunes, or scroll to the 20:06 mark below to hear the song now.

Beat the Champ is out April 7th via Merge (April 13th in Europe and 3rd in Australia/New Zealand). We’ve previously heard the track “The Legend of Chavo Guerrero”, and the band has revealed a large tour schedule; hear and see it all here.

Drizzy’s “truss mi daddi” is immortalised on the grime star’s new track.

After Drake borrowed a line from Skepta’s ‘That’s Not Me’, the BBK MC has paid him back by sampling the Toronto rapper’s hilarious Vine from the start of the year.
