Boots shares new music in short film Motorcycle Jesus watch
Feb 26, 2015 10:40am | Cosequence Of Sound

Ever-engrossing producer Boots has released his new short film Motorcycle Jesus. The original score for the 30-minute movie contains a handful of new material from the Beyoncé producer, as well as contributions from El-P and Carla Azar.

Press for the clip says Boots chose to create the short film as opposed to a traditional music video release cycle. Set in the sparse, red Mojave Desert, Boots worked closely with director of photography Hunter Baker to set up every shot, making the film entirely his own. For the tech savvy, the clip additionally claims to be “one of the first of its kind to be presented in 4K HD (2160p).”

The soundtrack to Motorcycle Jesus is due out March 3rd via Canvasback/Atlantic. Watch the whole thing below.




Album release day officially moving to Friday worldwide

After being talked about for a while, Billboard confirms that Friday will be the global release date for new records starting this summer. It's an amendment to the current system where albums become available at different dates in different countries (the US release day is currently Tuesday). From the article:

"Music fans live in the digital world of today," wrote IFPI head Frances Moore. "Their love for new music doesn't recognise national borders. They want music when it's available on the internet -- not when it's ready to be released in their country. An aligned global release day puts an end to the frustration of not being able to access releases in their country when the music is available in another country."

The proposal wasn't met with hosannas from every corner of the industry, however. While most agreed that a globally agreed-upon day for new music was best, there was some consternation over the choice of Friday. "The only justification for a Friday release date would be if it resulted in a net increase in sales," Entertainment Retailers Association Kim Bayley said in early October. (Sales weren't central to the IFPI's justifications for the move, though combating piracy could be considered the same thing.)

Just this week, Beggars Group chairman Martin Mills said: "I fear this move will also lead to a market in which the mainstream dominat...


Friday Is Officially The New Global Record Release Day
Feb 26, 2015 10:30am | StereoGum
I think we can safely say that we’ve reached a point where release dates are totally 100% irrelevant. Albums still leak, of course, and albums stream online in advance of their “official” release date, and sometimes a digital release will precede a physical release by days if not weeks. One of my favorite records of […]



Watch Boots Motorcycle Jesus Short Film
Feb 26, 2015 10:25am | StereoGum
When the name of the mysterious producer Boots appeared, over and over, in the credits of Beyoncé’s staggering self-titled album, he was an unknown, and he kept it that way for a while. But after a period of mystery and obfuscation, it emerged that Boots was Jordy Asher, the former leader of onetime Stereogum Band […]



The music industry makes Friday new global release date for music
Feb 26, 2015 10:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

For many, the release of new music has been a shining light for otherwise insufferable Tuesdays. However, that’s about to change.

According to Music Week, the music industry is “on the verge of” making Friday the global release date for new music. The idea has been floated around since last summer, but Frances Moore of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) told Music Week that the organization intends to make a formal announcement soon.

Update – Thursday, February 26th: The IFPI officially announced the global release date, writing in a statement, “The compelling logic of Friday is that it is the day that best suits consumers … the highest footfall in physical retail stores and the highest levels of purchasing traffic online. Its also the time of greatest activity on social media, helping amplify the buzz around new releases everywhere. And the weekend is a time for greater spontaneous purchasing.” The change will go into effect this summer.

“The good news has been the widespread support we’ve seen around the world for global release day — no one has seriously questioned the concept, the only debate has been about the day,” Moore said of the IFPI’s ongoing conversations within the industry, including retailers, labels, and artists. “The artist organisations and many retailers and ...


Stream Moby and Daniel Ahearns original soundtrack for The Ever After listen
Feb 26, 2015 10:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies, the upcoming Point Break remake) and Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World13 Sins) are most widely known for their actings roles. Recently, however, the pair teamed up to co-write a small independent feature called The Ever After, in which they both star and Webber directs.

The film follows a disintegrating marriage in Los Angeles as two “lovers struggle to overcome the everyday temptations of an ordinary human life; what they discover is somewhat extraordinary.” (Almost ironically, Palmer and Webber got engaged during filming and were married in 2013.) To help bring the story to life, the filmmakers enlisted the equally extraordinary talents of Moby and LA alt-folk singer-songwriter Daniel Ahearn to contribute original music for the movie.

“Working with Daniel and Moby on the score for The Ever [After] was such a gift for me as a filmmaker,” Webber says. “I remember Daniel would send me links to bits of score the moment he was done in a frenzy, and it was just perfect every time. The ultimate organic collaboration that felt effortless.”

Each artist supplied five new tracks for the soundtrack. Moby’s offerings range from the jiving “Break 2012″ to the slow, heavy whirl of “Viktor Plane”, all of the songs playing heavily in the electronica DJ&r...


Beat the worst part of clubbing with Smirnoffs #Queue the Music
Feb 26, 2015 10:12am | Fact Magazine

Sick of queuing? Smirnoff takes the hassle out of one of clubbings most annoying aspects with #Queue the Music.

At the end of last year, Smirnoff transformed the queuing experience for punters at Pryzm nightclub in Bristol. At its most busy, the queue at the club can get up to 500 people deep, but when the queue reached its peak that Saturday, Smirnoff surprised clubbers with a unique experience. A Landrover-come-soundsystem with a DJ playing a set rocked up and people in the queue were provided with headphones, turning the occasion into a silent disco. There were even lights, confetti canons, fire eaters and a smoke machine.

Although this particular event was a one-off, we’re told they have similar shenanigans in the pipeline for 2015, so watch this space for those.

To see Smirnoffs #Queue the Music experience in action, watch the video below.

Pale Angels announce new album & tour (listen to first single, "If Only You're Gone")
Feb 26, 2015 10:08am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

We profiled NJ/Wales punks Pale Angels in our Fest preview last year, and at the time their only album was 2013's Primal Play. They're now set to release its followup, Imaginary People, on April 6 via Specialist Subject/Recess Records. Like the last album, they recorded it with Ben Greenberg (ex-The Men, currently Uniform and Hubble), and for this one they've got new drummer Chris Krause on board. Mikey Erg played on their debut.

We've got the premiere of the album's first single, "If Only You're Gone," a noisy, shambolic dose of garage punk that rips as hard as everything we've heard from the band thus far. Recording with a former member of The Men makes sense here, as anyone who dug that band's Open Your Heart era will probably dig this too. Of course that also means fans of The Replacements, The Gun Club, or any handful of SST's mid-'80s bands may have a soft spot for Pale Angels as well. Check it out, along with the album tracklist, below. That's the artwork above.

Pale Angels also have an extensive tour of the UK, Canada and the US coming up this spring. The tour wraps up in Brooklyn on May 6 at Coco 66. Other bands TBA, and tickets should be on sale soon. All dates are listed below.

Young Guv Crawling Back To You (Stereogum Premiere)
Feb 26, 2015 9:58am | StereoGum
Young Guv is the alter ego of Fucked Up guitarist Ben Cook, and while he shreds majestically at his day job, his solo work is decidedly lighter and poppier. His latest album, Ripe 4 Luv, is due in March, and we’ve already heard two excellent (and very different) singles: the smoothly funky, Kaputt-esque “Wrong Crowd” […]



Nicolas Jaar remixes Florence and the Machines What Kind of Man listen
Feb 26, 2015 9:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this week, Nicolas Jaar unveiled a new 20-track score for the 1969 Armenian film The Color of Pomegranates. Today, the producer returns with a similarly impressive undertaking in the form of a massive 12-minute remix of Florence and the Machines latest single “What Kind of Man”.

Glitchy and entrancing, Jaar’s reworking sees the powerful pop anthem molded into an eclectic club banger. Though the track goes on for quite some time (it’s nearly 3x longer than the original), there’s hardly ever a dull or dry moment. Would Florence Welch get down to this? Somehow, I think she’d love it. Listen in below.

“What Kind of Man” is taken from Florence and the Machine’s forthcoming album, How Big How Blue Beautiful, due out June 2nd via Republic Records.



Super Furry Animals are back for 2015

After a five-year rest, it looks like Super Furry Animals are finally coming out of hibernation. There hasn't been an official announcement, but the band (who haven't played the US since 2009) just posted a video of the giant, blow-up bear from their 1997 album, Radiator, getting inflated for the first time in ages, with the only message being "Deffro'r arth o'i drwmgwsg" (Google says it's Welsh for "Woke from his slumber bear") and the hashtag #sfa2015. What, exactly, the 'Furries have planned remains to be seen. Watch the video below and stay tuned.

Meanwhile, you can catch up on your SFA history via their just-published official biography, and there are a number of side-projects to listen to as well. In addition to that teaser video, there's a few classic Super Furry Animals videos below...

Football, etc. Open (Stereogum Premiere)
Feb 26, 2015 9:44am | StereoGum
Football etc.’s music is as emotionally potent as it comes, and the Houston band doesn’t exactly need to reinvent the wheel to get their point across. But they manage to find nuance in familiarity, treading the well-worn ground of treacly Midwestern rock with particular panache. “Open” — the closer to their upcoming Disappear EP — […]



Against the Clock: Ansome
Feb 26, 2015 9:40am | Fact Magazine

Against the Clock is a series on FACT TV where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. You can watch all the past episodes here.

In some Against the Clocks, the artists focuses on the finished beat, adding elements step by step. Others – KiNK, Mathew Jonson – are as much about the process, and Ansome falls into the second bracket. The South London-based producer, who’s released a series of belting techno 12″s over the last year or so, has one hell of a studio, complete with modular synthesiser, and he utilises it to full effect here.
