Communions Out Of My World
Mar 26, 2015 10:33am | StereoGum
Late last year, the young Copenhagen band Communions impressed the hell out of us with their “So Long Sun” b/w “Love Stands Still” 7″. Later this year, they’ll follow up that single with a new self-titled EP, and they’ve just shared one of its tracks. “Out Of My World” has some of the chilliness of […]

A sound one might easily imagine floating through the emptiness of space quite happily waiting for some distant life form to receive its message.

Watch sound waves extinguish a fire
Mar 26, 2015 10:29am | Fact Magazine

Fighting fire with fiyah.

Two engineering students from George Mason University in Virginia have stunned their professors by inventing a fire extinguisher that uses sound to put out flames. 

By blasting a fire with low frequencies between 30 and 60 hertz range, the extinguisher separates oxygen from fuel, explains inventor Viet Tran, who built the device with fellow student Seth Robertson. “The pressure wave is going back and forth, and that agitates where the air is. That specific space is enough to keep the fire from reigniting.”

The pair faced plenty of opposition to their project initially because they’re electrical engineers, not chemical several faculty members refused to act as advisers on the project. Eventually their professor Brian Mark agreed to oversee their work and not fail them if the whole thing flopped, said Tran.

Although they originally envisioned it as a tool to stop kitchen fires and to eliminate the toxic and messy chemicals used in commercial extinguishers, Tran and Robertson think their invention could be used in wide areas outdoors, such as forest fires, or even in space. A local fire department has also asked them to test their bass waves on a large structure fire.

Read more about the extinguisher in the Washington Post, and check out this project to show what sound waves really look like.

Police officer fights unarmed black man in Run the Jewels new video for Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck) watch
Mar 26, 2015 10:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

Run the Jewels dove into heavy topics of racism and police brutality in their excellent 2014 album Run the Jewels 2. Now, the hip-hop duo expands on those themes with help from director A.G. Rojas in the new video for standout single “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)” featuring Rage Against the Machine’s Zach de la Rocha.

Starring Keith Stanfield, whose breakout role came in the moving foster care drama Short Term 12, and Shea Whigham from Boardwalk Empire and Agent Carter, the video depicts two men wrestling each other for what seems like hours. One is a uniformed, white police officer, and the other is a young black man that he’s been chasing. The fight is exhausting, and we see the fatigue setting in on the two characters until night falls and they finally both give in at the home of Stanfield’s character. It’s a moving, human portrait of racial tensions and violence set in miniature, and a perfect fit for the politically-charged single.

Rojas said of the short:

“We had to exploit the lyrics and aggression and emotion of the track, and translate that into a film that would ignite a valuable and productive conversation about racially motivated violence in this country. It’s provocative, and we all knew this, so we were tasked with making something that expressed the intensity of senseless violence without eclipsing our humanity. For me, it was importan...


Hard Left = Mike from Slumberland/Black Tambourine + mems of Boyracer & Lunchbox (listen to a song from their debut LP)
Mar 26, 2015 10:18am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Slumberland Records founder, Black Tambourine drummer and Manatee gutarist Mike Schulman has a new band called Hard Left, and the indie pop sounds you may associate him with are nowhere to be found here. Also featuring Boyracer's Stewart Anderson and Lunchbox's Tim Brown and Donna McKean, Hard Left make throwback punk recalling the late '70s UK era. If you're into stuff like Sham 69, Cockney Rejects or The Sex Pistols, this band is for you.

The band's debut LP, We Are Hard Left, comes out May 12 as the third release on Mike's new label Future Perfect Records. We've got the premiere of its newest single, "Red Flag," which you can listen to below.

The California-based band also have a few upcoming shows in their home state. Those dates are listed below too...

Run The Jewels Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck) (Feat. Zack De La Rocha) Video
Mar 26, 2015 10:11am | StereoGum
The release of Run The Jewels’ RTJ2 will always remind me of 2014’s tumultuous racial climate in the US — the way Killer Mike and El-P’s lyrics eerily predicted the pattern of white police officers’ repeated deadly violence against unarmed black men, Mike’s thoughtful CNN appearances and Billboard op-ed, the powerful speech Mike gave in […]

Boston DIY-scene kings Pile just scored Album Of The Week honor with their new LP You’re Better Than This, and they’ve just now unveiled their video for the quick, scratchy rave-up “Rock And Roll Forever With The Customer In Mind.” In the clip, bassist Matt Connery plays a high-school burnout whose name is literally “American […]



Popol Vuh, phantasmagoric rave and Broadcast: Marchs 10 must-hear reissues and retrospectives
Mar 26, 2015 10:03am | Fact Magazine

Thanks to the graft of reissue labels and canny collectors, theres an embarrassment of neglected, forgotten or misunderstood material being unearthed week by week.

The volume of new-old music doesnt outpace new-new music, of course, but its not too far behind either. With so many more archival releases turning up on shelves, weve worked though the stacks to pick our favourite reissues and retrospectives of the last month.

Excavated in March (or thereabouts): impossibly good hiplife from Ghana; Greek electro-noir; impromptu duets for pipe organ and Henry Hoover; and the eeriest Eric Prydz remix youll ever hear.

Beatport launches a mobile streaming app
Mar 26, 2015 9:57am | Fact Magazine

The Beatport app also lets EDM fans buy tickets for shows.

Online dance music retailer Beatport has launched a new mobile app for iOS and Android, designed to complement its recently launched streaming service.

The Beatport app now allows users of its free streaming service to listen to tracks on their mobile devices. It also features access to Beatport Shows, a calendar of events with integrated ticket purchasing, tying nicely into parent company SFX Entertainment’s concerns in the live music sphere.

The new app isn’t the first time Beatport has launched an app – in 2010 it released an iPhone app, allowing users to browse, listen, and add music to their cart on the go. The app has since been removed from the App Store.

The Beatport app should be available on iOS and Android platforms later today. [via The Verge]

Calvin Love Daydream Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 26, 2015 9:57am | StereoGum
That smirky gentleman staring into your soul up there is Calvin Love, a veteran of the same Edmonton scene that birthed other oddball indie rockers like Mac DeMarco and Alex Calder. On 2012’s New Radar, Love borrowed some inspiration and a few neon-colored synths from ’80s new wave, but on his newly announced album Super […]

Ceremony @ BV-SXSW at Red 7 - 3/21/2015

Ceremony were just down in Austin for SXSW last week, playing a few shows including the BrooklynVegan Saturday party at Red 7. The shapeshifting band previewed a few songs from their upcoming album, and while people often use "sounds like Joy Division" to just mean "post-punk," these new Ceremony songs really sounded like Joy Division. Not a bad thing though, because Ceremony do it well.

Now the album's officially been announced, and studio recordings for two of the tracks, "The Separation" and "The Understanding," are out. Check them out for yourself in the band's new video (dir. Ross Thomas), below. The album's called The L-Shaped Man, and will be out May 19 via Matador.

The band also announced a few tour dates, including a NYC show happening July 1 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon via Ticketmaster. They're also performing songs from the new album this Friday (3/27) at Kinfolk 94 (94 Wythe Ave in Brooklyn) at 6:45 PM. RSVP here, but admission is still first come, first served.

All dates are listed, with more pictures of their BV-SXSW set, the album artwork and new video, below...
