Album of Kurt Cobain home recordings to be released this summer
May 1, 2015 1:41pm | Fact Magazine

The director of Montage of Heck announces the release.

In an interview with Bedford + Bowery (via Pitchfork), director Brett Morgen says he’s not done with the Kurt Cobain archives that he used to help create the authorized documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck.

Asked if there were any still-unreleased “gems” from the Cobain archives, Morgen said: “We



Donkey Kong Country creators Kickstart Yooka-Laylee featuring game music legends David Wise and Grant Kirkhope
May 1, 2015 1:40pm | Fact Magazine

Listen to David Wise’s ‘Jungle Challenge’ now.

Today a Kickstarter appeared for Yooka-Laylee, a video game from veterans of the development company Rare. Rare is perhaps best known for making the Donkey Kong Country games for Super Nintendo and Banjo Kazooie for Nintendo 64, and the team has cited the latter as the direct inspiration for Yooka. The game originally set a goal of $270,041, but has already broken $600,000 in a few hours.

One of the most exciting pieces of news to come from it is in the music. That’s because Yooka-Laylee features a soundtrack by David Wise and Grant Kirkhope, the respective composers behind Donkey Kong Country and Banjo Kazooie. Both composers are featured heavily on our feature The 100 Greatest Video Game Soundtracks Of All Time, which we published earlier this week.

Furthermore, Wise was interviewed on FACT a few years ago by Ryan Hemsworth, who described Wise’s ‘Stickerbrush Symphony’ as “one of my favourite pieces of music ever.”

Listen to a new song by Wise that features on the Yooka-Laylee soundtrack titled ‘Jungle Challenge’ below.

Another night, we might sell half-pint bottles of Jim Beam, or serve pancakes during a Sunday matinee. Perhaps we will have a mustachioed guy in a vest serving the freshest, most well-balanced cocktail you've ever had. Mayb...

Foxygen namecheck David Bowie, Drake, and Ezra Koenig on
May 1, 2015 12:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Next week, Foxygen are scheduled to hit the road for the second leg of their farewell tour, but apparently that hasn’t stopped them from recording new material. Today, the band have shared a song titled “24 Hour Lover Man”.

Here, the California outfit couple wiry, noise-addled garage rock with a host of truly bizarre, even crude, lyrics. Frontman Sam France also namechecks David Bowie, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Drake, Freddy Krueger (!?), and — uhh, you just have to hear it for yourself. Listen to the song below and take a peek at its “interesting” prose.

“24 Hour Lover Man” Lyrics:

Straight from the space age
havin a cocaine habit
sup bitchboy the backstabber fucked my shit up
put to bed the notion that i give a fuck
I’m David Bowie
maniacal, exxon to mobile
fucked up in Calabases fucked up in Barnes and Noble, boi
Heard your man can’t last too long
drinks three beers and falls asleep before you cum
fuck it
I’m on some post-Ezra Koenig fuckin North Face bullshit boyfriend
24 hour lover man baby

Likes boys but he’s not gay,
cuz they’re just toys for which to play with
your favorite was some girl in Beverly Hills who’s famous
Famous, famous, everyone’s famous
everyone’s famous in this section of Hell
Move on, get off, cerulean military jackets fro...


BB King hospitalized following minor heart attack, daughter alleges elder abuse
May 1, 2015 12:17pm | Cosequence Of Sound

BB King is currently in a Las Vegas hospital after suffering a minor heart attack on Thursday.

According to TMZ, King’s daughter Patty allegedly called police after King’s longtime manager Laverne Toney refused to take him to the hospital. After paramedics arrived, it was determined that the 89-year-old blues great was in need of urgent care.

Patty recently filed a police report against Toney — who has power of attorney over her father — accusing him of elderly abuse and burglary. Patty contends that Toney has stolen upwards of $30 million and withheld medication from King whilst he was on tour.

Police investigated the allegations and chose not to file charges. However, Patty said she’s now in the process of trying to strip Toney of his power of attorney.
