Four Tet announces two 12s under his Percussions alias plus an EP from the mysterious Taraval  hear Blatant Water Cannon
Apr 15, 2014 10:19am | Fact Magazine

Four Tet has announced the next three releases on his label Text.

“TEXT029 and TEXT030 and TEXT031 are ready and will all be released on the same day. Around 28 April I think,” he wrote on Twitter.

The first pair of 12″s are from the producer’s Percussions alias and are both split singles ‘KHLHI/Sext’ and ‘Ascii Bot/Blatant Water Cannon’.

The third is an EP from unknown entity Taraval titled Streetways, which will be available as a 12″ and digitally. Check out Taraval’s ‘Gonna Rain’, taken from a recent Four Tet mix, below.

He added, quite possibly with tongue firmly in cheek: “Special Pono 23bit mastered limited RSD versions coming soon.”

VIDEO PREMIERE: Teen Tits Wild Wives cover a murder ballad, travel to denim heaven in Louis
Apr 15, 2014 10:17am | Chart Attack

Just as we were contemplating what heaven looks like (our final conclusion: not, like, fluffy clouds and harps or anything, you know?), into our inbox comes "Louis," the new Eric James Mayer-directed video for Toronto polysonics Teen Tits Wild Wives, and we have our answer once and for all: Heaven is a '90s Bugle Boy ad. Over a dreamy. twangy cover of Mississippi John Hurt's murder ballad "Louis Collins," we see the souls of passed-on Denim Youth wandering around the afterlife. They may have been shot down in the previous life and left their mamas mournin', but now their troubles are behind them and all that's left is a straight-cut paradise. Watch it below.

Teen Tits Wild Wives have a genre-hopping new EP Street Hawkz (out today) for $4 at Bandcamp. They play a release party this Friday at Milk Glass Co. in Toronto.

Soca meets techno on new Mixpak EP by Mr One Hundred; download a bootleg here
Apr 15, 2014 10:16am | Fact Magazine

Mr One Hundred is the new alias of London-via-St. Louis producer Paul B. Davis.

While he’s working under a new alias, Davis is a veteran of midwest raves and the Chicago art world that eventually landed in London. In a previous life, the self-described hacker artist crafted the video game-sample phreaking 8 Bit Construction Set with Corey Arcangel.

It was in London that Davis fell in love with soca, a genre that shares an intensity with his “techno upbringing.” Both influences are on a collision course on his debut as Mr One Hundred, the Palm Tree Destruction EP, out today via Mixpak. Described as “power soca music from the future,” the EP joins official samples from soca heavyweights Machel Montano, Fay Ann Lyons and Bunji Garlin with Mr One Hundred’s hyperactive techno productions.

In addition to the EP, Mr One Hundred has bootlegged Montano’s ‘Higher Than High’, taking the song’s already-anthemic bombast to new levels. Download the bootleg and stream the EP below. Mixpak boss Dre Skull previewed the EP and more from the label on FACT’s recent East Village Radio show.


Stream: Futures new album Honest
Apr 15, 2014 10:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Futures star-studded new album, Honest, arrives on April 22nd via Epic Records. In anticipation, the 12-track effort is streaming in its entirety via MTV. Listen in below.

The follow-up to Future’s 2012 debut Pluto features a handful of hip-hop’s biggest names, including Kanye West, Pharrell, Drake, Andre 3000, and Pusha T, among others. It is preceded by the singles “I Won” featuring Kanye and “Move That Dope” featuring Pharrell and Pusha T.

Future discussed his mindset while recording Honest: “The album that you gonna get when it comes out is not the album I was working on when I first started recording. It was another kind of album. It was more I guess I was just expressing myself about everyday life and where I was at thenjust emotionally, personally. The beats were slower, had more guitar riffs, just playing around with the piano more and with different instruments. I started going in another direction after I made the Shit record. It just flipped the whole album. I got in a whole other mood when I went in the studio. I just started recording, recording, recording as much as possible. I just got in a great zone. I was able to capture the best moments. It helped me make a classic album. Its just going to be very timeless.”

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing. Below, watch the video for “Move That Dope”:

Jackmaster and Oneman team up as Can U Dance, tour Europe
Apr 15, 2014 10:10am | Fact Magazine

While they’ve been spotted playing back to back sets on countless occasions now, Jackmaster and Oneman have now made the partnership official.

The duo have adopted the moniker Can U Dance, and are set to take their 4-deck setup on the road this summer, moving through the UK and Europe. Thankfully, they’re are remarkably down to earth about the concept behind the project, and don’t have any grand plan or annoying manifesto, they just want to play a bunch of bangers and make sure crowds lap it up.

Jack Revill, aka Jackmaster says it best: “we always ended up playing together when were on the same line-up so this was just a natural progression, and a chance to do something on a festival level without sacrificing the spontaneity of our back to back sets.” You don’t need to tell us twice.

Check out the duo’s brand spanking new site here.

Tour dates:

06/07 – Field Day, London
06/08 – Parklife, Manchester
07/10 – Exit Festival, Serbia
07/17 – Dour Festival, Belgium
08/01 – Dekmantel Festival, Amsterdam
08/29 – Dimensions Festival, Croatia

Apr 15, 2014 10:10am | StereoGum

Pluto, the last album from Atlanta sing-rap auteur Future, was one of those albums that absolutely changed the face of rap, and Future’s voice has been possibly the most inescapable presence on rap radio over the past two years. He is a big, big deal. And for many of us, his new album Honest, which was originally supposed to come out last year, is one of the most feverishly, painfully anticipated LPs of the year. It’s here now. After we’ve posted early tracks like the amazing Pharrell/Pusha T/Casino collab “Move That Dope” and the Kanye West team-up “I Won,” we can finally stream the whole album. It’s below.

Listen: Cloud Control Praise You (Fatboy Slim Cover)
Apr 15, 2014 10:05am | The Line Of Best Fit

Austrailian Blue Mountains dwellers Cloud Control are currently on a relentless tour from Oz to America, pursuing the promotion of their celestial second album, Dream Cave. Today hears the gang try something really quite different: a cover of a Fatboy Slim classic.

The band’s brand-new track is a blissful cover of Slim’s 1999 big beat hit, Praise You. Abandoning the piano-heavy composition of the original (then promoted by Spike Jonzes standout music video) Cloud Control infuse the song with psychedelic chanting and endless keyboard loops. The quartet excitedly seem to create a tear in the space-time continuum, in which 1960s American mind-expanding-hippies meet up with 1970s German electronic-pioneers. The lyrics, weve come a long, long way together, have never felt so appropriate.

“Praise You” is featured on 5, a new limited edition vinyl album released as part of Infectious Music’s fifth birthday celebrations for Record Store Day (19 April). The LP features a range of new and exclusive material from  Temper Trap, Drenge, Local Natives,


Woods With Light And With Love
Apr 15, 2014 10:00am | CMJ

Brooklyn’s Woods have combatted the “jam band” label for almost 10 years now by releasing albums filled with intricate folk-rock tunes. But tracks like the instrumental September With Pete from 2009′s Songs Of Shame have made this an uphill trudge, courtesy of those who associate seven-plus-minute songs with the jam band tag. So admittedly, Woods are not without blame for this impression. While you may not hear too much Garcia or Allman in the mix, the band’s tendency to venture into festival-ready rhythms and guitar noodling has remained an integral constant on their releases. With Light And With Love is no exception, but it also finds the band exercising their unique roots-pop expertise to an even deeper effect than before.

Part of this album’s success can be credited to the band’s decision to shift away from their traditional bang-em-out writing style. This was their first time in a proper studio, and the extra time and attention given to each song pays off. The drums pack a bigger punch, with deep grooves and powerful fills; the nuances of various guitar parts are all brought out without clashing; and Jeremy Earl’s falsetto sounds just as much at home over the distorted squeals of With Light And With Love as it does over the light Americana strums of the opening track, Shepherd. The bluesy Leaves Like Glass is the strongest example of t...


Weed touring, playing NYC shows w/ Audacity + Coathangers and Laced (new band ft. Dustin of Beach Fossils) (dates)
Apr 15, 2014 9:59am | Brooklyn Vegan

Vancouver sludge rockers Weed released their debut album, Deserve, last year and they're currently over in the US continuing to support it on tour. The tour brings them to NYC for two shows this week, including Shea Stadium on Wednesday (4/16) with Tonstartssbandht, Laced and Nandas, and the next day they open the Baby's All Right (4/17) stop of the Coathangers / Audacity tour. Ex-Humans are on the Baby's show too, and tickets for that one are still available. All Weed dates are listed below.

For Laced, the Shea show will be their first-ever live gig. The brand new band features Beach Fossils singer Dustin Payseur and former Cairo booker Ian Kim Judd. They're not to be confused with the UK band of the same name, who Shea's site actually links to in the show listing. No music from them yet, but stay tuned. (Also yes, this does mean you can see "Laced with Weed" at Shea this week.)

All dates are listed, with a stream of Weed's LP, below...

Twin Shadow To The Top
Apr 15, 2014 9:57am | StereoGum

Between Swans and the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, this has already been a ridiculously strong morning for new music. And now Twin Shadow have taken a break from their UNDER THE CVRS project, in which George Lewis, Jr. has been persistently knocking out beautiful covers on YouTube, to give us a brand-new near-masterpiece of their own. Lewis is currently working on a new Twin Shadow album, and now he’s shared a new song called “To The Top.” It’s a beautifully rendered piece of ’80s-style slow-dance prom balladry, and it’s possibly the biggest, grandest thing that Lewis has ever recorded. Download it below.

The 10 Best Galaxie 500 Songs
Apr 15, 2014 9:56am | StereoGum

If rock-critic clichés never existed, Galaxie 500 would have had to invent them. Named after a classic model Ford that none of the band members had ever actually driven, Galaxie 500 — vocalist/guitarist Dean Wareham, bassist/vocalist Naomi Yang, and drummer Damon Krukowski — began like many eighties bands reared on rock and roll radio and back issues of Trouser Press: as imitators, not innovators. Luckily, something got scrambled in the translation, serendipitously resulting in the organic compound that is Galaxie 500. Like contemporaneous visionaries Sonic Youth, the Jesus & Mary Chain, or Public Enemy, Galaxie 500′s music suggested innate greatness; because of this, there has always been something more than a little fluke-ish about their rise to glory.
