Hooray For Earth announce breakup
Nov 25, 2014 9:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

New York synth rockers Hooray For Earth have called it quits. The band announced that Monday nights show at Brooklyns Glasslands would be “the last Hooray For Earth show ever. XO HFE.”

Prior to the announcement, the band also posted an Instragram video (below) featuring the caption “in th end u surrnded be ur frns.”

Hooray For Earth began in 2005 as the home recording project of singer and multi-instrumentalist Noel Heroux. After handling much of the bands early recordings on his own, including 2008s Cellophane EP, Heroux recruited several friendsto complete Hooray For Earth’s debut album, 2011s True Loves. From there, the full band went onto release a handful of singles and what would become their second and final full-length, this past summers Racy. Hooray For Earth were also noted for collaborations with fellow NYC acts Twin Shadow and Zambri.

Below, check out a few samples from Hooray For Earths discography.




Michael Feuerstack Clackity Clack (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 25, 2014 9:47am | StereoGum

Canadian indie rock veteran Michael Feuerstack has only been putting out music under his own name for a few years now, though he’s left a long trail of releases dating back to 1994 under the now-retired name of Snailhouse. He’s releasing a new record, The Forgettable Truth, next year and “Clackity Clack” is the first offering from it. The track is a heaving and gorgeous piece of music, anguishing and contemplative. “Only indecision can make a man regret what he hasn’t done” is just one of many poignant and beautiful lines that Feuerstack drops like rose petals. “This song chronicles how hard it can be to feel ok in our time — an ode to stay true in a world of media saturation and cult of personality,” Feuerstack explains. “Swathed in delays — the track was recorded largely live on the first take, with layers of vocals and strings added later.” Listen below.

Track Premiere: Book Club You Say It So Glacial
Nov 25, 2014 9:45am | CMJ


Atlanta’s Book Club is not a book club, but a band, though that doesn’t mean they’re not literary. Despite their music’s pastoral simplicity (they call themselves a “rural pop collective”), there’s a narrative weightiness to their sound. Take You Say It So Glacial, a single off their upcoming album One-Way Moon. Dripping with little but soft strings and the delicate harmonies of guitarist Robbie Horlick and Rachel Buckley, the song creates an atmosphere in its lyrics like, “You say it’s so glacial/like Mars or the moon/another world sometimes/in your room.” Here’s what Horlick had to say about the track and the experience of writing it immediately following a family trip to Iceland:

Some songs you slave over, and some just pour out of you. Its a mystery. And one of the most exciting parts of that mystery is when songs come to you whole. Paul McCartney dreamed all of Yesterday. I Love How You Love Me was written in five minutes on a cocktail napkin. George Michael wrote the sax melody for Careless Whisper on the back of an envelope on a plane. Theres something really pure about songs that come into the world fully realized. And thats how it was with You Say It So Glacial.

All of the lyrics for Glacial came to me in about five minutes. And when I got home [from Iceland], I picked up my gui...


Sleigh Bells and Tink share video for That Did It  watch
Nov 25, 2014 9:42am | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this month, noise pop outfit Sleigh Bells and rapper Tink teamed on “That Did It”. The excellent one-off track highlighted the tangible chemistry between Sleigh Bells frontwoman Alexis Krauss and the rising Chicago MC as the pair seemingly bounced off each other’s lyrics and vocal inflections as if they had been collaborators for years.

Now, Krauss and Tink reconvene for a highly choreographed music video. Directed by Grant Singer (Foxygen, Sky Ferreira), the clip features a whole lot of dancing, outfit changes, and other kinetic visuals that highlight both artists in a total groove. Watch below.



HOLY Golden Fog (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 25, 2014 9:32am | StereoGum

HOLY is the new project of north Sweden-based musician Hannes Ferm, but if I heard his debut single “Golden Fog” without knowing anything about him, I would have bet on him coming from someplace a little warmer. The Scandinavian countries are best known for two types of music: sparkling but icy pop, and discordant stuff that can either come in a post-punk or metal flavor. HOLY’s none of those things — instead, Ferm opts for a more romanticized version of garage rock, sweet and a little bit noisy but not oppressively so. On the chorus, he sings “flying through that open door” and the syllables are all stretched out, almost as if he’s screaming while in mid-air. And even though Ferm’s voice is drenched in reverb, his sentiments come across clearly. The track is taken from his debut EP, Silver Of Your Heart. Listen below.

Ariel Pinks Gorilla vs. Bear Mixtape
Nov 25, 2014 9:30am | Gorilla Vs Bear

Ariel Pink‘s brilliant, demented, and only sometimes infuriating new record pom pom is out now, and despite evoking bafflingly polarized reactions that seem influenced by mostly manufactured controversy (granted, he says some dumb shit), or that occasionally miss the point altogether, we think it’s one of the best records of the year. So we asked Ariel to take over the site for a day, and he made us this “mixtape” instead, featuring tracks from Puro Instinct, the Shaggs, Vashti Bunyan, Rexy, Cassie Ramone, Jewel, and more. It’s just a youtube playlist, but it somehow feels more telling than all of his half-hearted trolling and trash-talking combined. Check it out below, and stick around all day for more posts from Ariel’s crucial pom pom collaborators/band, including Jorge Elbrecht, Don Bolles, Tim Koh, and others.

Stay up on all of Ariel Pink’s (and his band’s) picks throughout the day here.


Stream AC/DC Rock Or Bust
Nov 25, 2014 9:26am | StereoGum

AC/DC, the Australian kings of bone-crunchingly simple classic rock, have had a tumultuous year, with Malcolm Young being treated for dementia and Phil Rudd facing charges that he hired a hitman. But the band is about to kick things into gear with Rock Or Bust, their first new album in six years. We’ve posted the early singles “Play Ball” and “Rock Or Bust,” and both find the band tapping effortlessly back into that great and inimitable signature sound. And right now, you can stream the full 11-track album at iTunes Radio.

Rock Or Bust is out 12/2 on Columbia.

Warehouse Omission
Nov 25, 2014 9:20am | StereoGum

Back in July, the Atlanta-based band Warehouse self-released their debut album Tesseract, an equally methodical and messy group of songs that stood out as one of the more distinct and exciting soundtracks to my summer. Yesterday, Beach Fossils’ Dustin Payseur and former Captured Tracks manager Katie Garcia launched their new label Bayonet Records and announced that Tesseract will be one of its first releases in March of next year. Bayonet promised new material from Beach Fossils, and announced forthcoming releases from Warehouse’s fellow ATL punks Red Sea, as well as Frankie Cosmos. On “Omission,” Elaine Edenfield’s voice is gothic and snarling, soothed only by what can be described as Warehouse’s expertly tailored movements. In just over four minutes the track expands and makes room for new iterations of its introductory riff, all the while maintaining its initial feral energy. Listen.

System of a Down reunite for Wake Up the Souls tour
Nov 25, 2014 9:12am | Cosequence Of Sound

System of a Down will reunite next April for a string of concerts in the UK and Europe. Dubbed the “Wake Up the Souls” tour, the seven-city jaunt coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

The band, whose members are all Armenian-American, hope the tour will bring renewed awareness of the genocide, which saw the murder of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire in 1915.

Frontman Serj Tankian said in a statement, “As a band, its been one of our dreams to play in Armenia. To be able to play in the homeland of our forefathers while respecting the memory of those that perished in the first genocide of the 20th century will be an honor.

System of a Down 2014-2015 Tour Dates:
12/13 – Inglewood, CA @ The Forum (KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas)
04/10 London, UK @ Wembley Arena
04/13 Cologne, DE @ Lanxess Arena
04/14 Lyon, FR @ La Halle Tony Garnier
04/16 Brussels, BE @ Forest National
04/17 Amsterdam, NL @ Ziggo Dome
04/20 Moscow, RU @ Olympisky
04/23 Yerevan, AM @ Republic Square

Read the band’s full explanation of tour and watch a trailer.

The first genocide of the 20th century was perpetrated by the Ottoman Turks against the empire’s Armenian, Greek and Assyrian populations. The failure to prevent the atrocities or punish the perpetrators led to the modern cycle of genocide.<...


Watch Dej Loaf Play Try Me With The Roots On The Tonight Show
Nov 25, 2014 9:06am | StereoGum

Detroit rapper Dej Loaf’s “Try Me,” a prettily sleepy half-sung cloud-rap song about being ready to kill someone, has been a slow-burning hit for months. Last night, it actualized its potential. Dej Loaf was the musical guest on The Tonight Show, and the Roots backed her up on “Try Me.” She wore what appeared to be a bathrobe, and she looked proud as fuck posing next to Fallon when it was all over. It’s a serious blast to watch her in the early stages of what could be world-takeover mode, and you can watch the performance below.

Artist To Watch: Shura
Nov 25, 2014 8:53am | StereoGum

With just three singles this year — the misty-lens ballads “Touch” and “Just Once” and the umtempo dance-pop track “Indecision” — Shura established a compelling, unmistakable artistic imprint. The London native, born to a British father and a Russian mother, had been honing her craft in her city’s pubs and the recesses of YouTube. By way of solo acoustic works and collaborations with London DJ/producer Hiatus, she experimented her way toward a hybrid strain of early ’90s pop, blending R&B, synthpop, and new wave with ghostly overtones of Madonna, Janet Jackson, and “Time After Time” Cyndi Lauper.

Jackmaster shares his epic 2014 Mastermix
Nov 25, 2014 8:53am | Fact Magazine

Jackmaster continues his yearly series of mixes with 2014′s epic installment.

For the last few years, Numbers boss and international DJ superstar (really) Jackmaster has been putting together a selection of his favorite tunes to round up his 12 months in jetsetting and spinning. This year’s been his biggest to date, so it’s hardly surprising that the blend reflects that with a soupy selection of soul, funk, electro, house and obscurities dug from the nether-regions.

It’s an expertly curated collection as usual, and gives us hope that sometimes the good guys do actually win. You can stream and download the entire mix in full below.


Nest made a video for "Hands In A Hole" (watch)
Nov 25, 2014 8:47am | Brooklyn Vegan

Earlier this year, Nashville band Nest put out the Hadal EP on Broken Circles, one of the better releases to come out of the recent trend of Hum aping. Now they've made a video for one of its tracks, "Hands In A Hole," which is premiering in this post. Watch below.

Peverelist kicks off 12,000 Seconds cassette series on Bass Clefs label
Nov 25, 2014 8:45am | Fact Magazine

Bristol bass head teams up with a Brooklyn experimenter on the first tape.

Cross-genre club producer Bass Clef is launching a cassette offshoot of his Magic + Dreams label with split releases from Peverelist and Ashley Paul plus Bristol’s Vi and Somerset collective Hacker Farm.

Each tape in the 12,000 Seconds series will feature two artists contributing a side of music each, dividing their 12,000 seconds into eight tracks lasting 0:06, 0:23, 1:11, 2:37, 3:03, 3:14, 4:20 and 6:06 seconds. Label boss Bass Clef, born Ralph Cumbers, realised after he’d come up with the concept that he’d got his maths a bit wrong  the track lengths actually add up to 12,060 seconds. “But hey, nobody’s perfect. I left the series title as a reminder of my infallibility,” he notes.

Both cassettes are out on December 5 hear some of the tracks in the player below.

Peverelist recently teamed up with Andy Mac for a house-leaning release on The Trilogy Tapes under the name Zennor, and his Solid Steel mix from a few months back is well worth checking out. If you’ve recently discovered the joy of (tape) decks, FACT’s monthly Caught On Tape column from Digitalis boss Brad Rose is a fine place to start.
