stream Anwar Sadat's 'Obedience' EP in full
Nov 26, 2014 7:30am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Rob Sperry-Fromm
Last week we told you about the new Anwar Sadat EP, Obedience. After sharing the new song "Rotted Out", we're now pleased to premiere a stream of the full EP, which is out next week (12/2) via Sick Room Records.
Obedience marks a continued step forward for these noisy post-punks after their strong 2013 LP Gold. The elastic baselines, cacophonous drumming and screeching guitar lines are still on display as their musicianship continues to develop. All the riffs on Obedience stick in your head long after the first listen, and the ground these guys cover over a mere four tracks is pretty impressive.
As mentioned Anwar Sadat start their tour this weekend, and will hit NYC soon, playng Shea Stadium on 12/13 with Tropical Trash, Bad Behavior, and Chat Logs.
Listen to Obedience below...

DiS meets King Tuff: "Everyones got something ugly about them"
Nov 26, 2014 7:26am | Drowned In Sound
Kyle Thomas is the mastermind behind the sex, drugs and Rock & Roll persona of King Tuff - a bat shit crazy hedonistic rock god shooting infectious riffs from the horns of his SG. Their latest release Black Moon Spell is a warts n all ride through the excess and occasional romanticism of King Tuff and his minions, or as they put it an hysterically magical Rock & Roll Sexperience.
The reassuring and reliable admiration that came with being in a rock band in the 70s is no longer there for our 21st century axe-men. Their forefathers abused their solo-sympathetic audiences - giving birth to things like Rick Wakemen and Keith Emerson - for only to arrive at the 80s and lose their shit completely in the video age. The main problem I think we can all agree is the fact that theyre still here! Be it on the One Show or on Whitesnakes never ending how-old-can-David-Coverdale-look-before-he-stops-singing Fool for Your Lovin bravado, theyre still dying their hair and sticking around like a bad smell presumably one emanating from Ian Andersons codpiece.
A vastly experienced and prolific songwriter, Thomas is seemingly able to channel the past through his own crazed filter, weaving intricate motifs with ease whilst still filling the sound of a tight and well-versed rock trio. Shaking off derivative comments with their refreshingly care free attitude, Tuff are one of those rare breeds who dedicate themselves completely to their image and sou...

Live Review: The Jesus and Mary Chain @ Manchester Academy (20/11/14)
Nov 26, 2014 6:50am | Drowned In Sound
Say what you like about "full album" shows, but they've been a regular feature on the live circuit since ATP started the ball rolling in 2005 with their Don't Look Back series. Some have been more deserving than others, the words "classic" and "seminal" becoming overused terms of reference in many cases. However, one record that's clearly earned the right for such hefty superlatives would have to be Psychocandy, The Jesus & Mary Chain's timeless and impeccably flawless debut.
Released in November 1985 during a winter of discontent still reeling from the fallout of a year long miners strike. Unemployment was rising and the apocalyptic "No Future" John Lydon had warned of during 1977's Golden Jubilee suddenly had a despondent ring to it. These were hard times and even though the pop stars of the day did everything within their powers to convey everything was fine and dandy it clearly wasn't.
Indeed much of the music on offer around this time didn't speak much to anyone in particular. While The Smiths may have been in their heyday and The Cure continued to confound the mainstream the majority of acts in the charts conveyed an air of fake sincerity about them. Harry Enfield's spoof character 'Loadsamoney' seemed to become an idol to those it was ironically lambasting (much in the same way Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Ali G' character would a decade or so later) while the divide between rich and poor grew more chasmic with every pass...

Björk to publish Archives book with contributions from Chris Cunningham, Spike Jonze and Nan Goldin
Nov 26, 2014 5:16am | Fact Magazine
Iceland’s national hero looks back on her peerless career.
Björk is putting together a meaty book to accompany her forthcoming retrospective at New York’s MoMA.
The luxurious Björk: Archives will trace her artistic development since 1993 through poetry, academic analysis, philosophical texts and photographs, as i-D reports (check out their brilliant vintage cover shot of the musician in her Goldie years).
Björk herself has overseen the creation of the book with contributions from her friends and collaborators, including directors Chris Cunningham and Spike Jonze, Icelandic poet Sjón and musicology professor Nicola Dibben, while MoMA curator Klaus Beisenbach will provide the introduction.
The book also features portraits by Nan Goldin, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh and Araki, as well Björk’s many iconic costumes designed by Alexander McQueen, Sophia Kokosalaki and Hussein Chalayan. Due for publication by Thames and Hudson on March 30, 2015, it also comes with four booklets and a poster featuring artwork from her releases.
In the meantime, Björk has been busy working on her next album with co-producer Arca and keeping her finger on the pulse by showing up at PC Music gigs. We approve. Super-fans should head directly to Björk’s 10 ...
