Promoters launch campaign to turn disused fort on Thames into Berghain-on-sea
Aug 20, 2014 10:26am | Fact Magazine
Let’s make Berghain-on-sea happen.
Scottish promoters have launched a crowdfunding campaign to convert a disused fort on the river Thames into a nightclub.
Located off the Isle of Grain at the mouth of the Thames estuary, the fort was built in the 19th century as part of a chain of coastal defences before being extended in the 20th century with a red brick barracks block and concrete gun tower. It’s hideous.
It’s also completely surrounded by water at high tide, making accessibility a major issue but Aberdeen promoters Minival have fallen for the fort’s brutal charms, saying they want to turn it into “Berghain in the middle of the sea”.
“Imagine a place you could go to, to get away from it all. With the worlds best DJs and music running continuously. A place where you are allowed the true freedom to express yourself among friends. Lets do this,” they’ve written on their campaign page.
The fort is currently listed for sale at £500,000 and the group hope to raise £750,000 to purchase and renovate the building. Head to the campaign page to make a pledge it’s an all-or-nothing deal, so donations will be refunded if they don’t reach their goal. [via Hyponik]

Ekoplekz unveils club-primed new EP Rock La Bibliotek
Aug 20, 2014 10:25am | Fact Magazine
Ekoplekz (aka Nick Edwards) is having a vintage year.
Dropping his career-topping Unfidelity LP on the esteemed Planet Mu imprint back in March, Edwards quickly followed with the twisted sequel Four Track Mind, which emerged last week. Not stopping for a moment, he’s now announced another EP, this time for the West Norwood Cassette Library label.
WNCL reportedly asked Edwards for material some time ago, and promised them “should he attempt to make any tracks for the club, he would get in touch.” He eventually got back to them with Rock La Bibliotek – a suite of six bizarre, labyrinthine compositions. It might not be the soundtrack to any club we’ve frequented (we’re guessing dungeons and chains might be involved, somewhere along the line), it’s yet more high quality, fractured electronic music from Edwards.
FACT’s very own Joe Muggs sat down with Edwards earlier this year and chatted about his wide range of influences, his methodology and club memories.
Rock La Bibliotek is set to drop on West Norwood Cassette Library on 22 September.
Video : The War on Drugs : Under The Pressure
Aug 20, 2014 10:21am | My Old Kentucky Blog
Lost in the Dream from The War on Drugs has been one of those transformative albums for us that we will always go back to at points in our life. It is just that good of an album. The video for “Under The Pressure”, one our favorites from it, completely captures the wandering, introspective experience of listening to the LP and is absolutely mesmerizing visually. The flooding of colors and film textures really bring it to life. It was directe by Houmam and can be watched below.
Deerhoof announces new album, La Isla Bonita, streams Exit Only
Aug 20, 2014 10:20am | Cosequence Of Sound
The members of Deerhoof have spent much of the last year indulged in side projects: Greg Saunier teamed with Sean Lennon as Mystical Weapons; Satomi Matsuzaki played a few solo shows, including one at Philip Glass Philippines benefit concert; John Dieterich recorded as Bad News from Houston; and Ed Rodriguez did some remix work. On November 4th, however, the San Francisco noise rockers will reconvene for the release of their 12th studio album, La Isla Bonita.
Serving as the follow-up to 2012’s Breakup Song, the 10-track effort was produced by Nick Sylvester (formerly of Mr. Dream) and draws upon a wide array of influences, including Beck, Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, and more.
In a statement, Saunier said, “No band is an island. Felt like one sometimes, in those budgetless and obscure early days, Satomi and me locked in the basement trying to figure out how our clashing personalities and ideas could turn into a band. If we hadn’t had that crazed mid-’90s Bay Area punk scene to call home, I doubt we’d still be here to chat about a 20th anniversary. We don’t set out to create masterpieces. The Deerhoof fan is a thrill-seeker. This is the latest volley in an ongoing conversation we’ve been honored to hold for 20 years.”
Our first taste of the LP comes via its lead single, “Exit Only”. After exploring the realm o...

Deerhoof Exit Only
Aug 20, 2014 10:14am | StereoGum
Deerhoof have a tremendously admirable work ethic. As a fan, you’re almost guaranteed a new album every year or two. Their last, Breakup Song, came out in 2012, and now, right on time, Deerhoof have announced that their new album, La Isla Bonita, will be released in November. The album is produced by Nick Sylvester (of the late Mr. Dream as well as Godmode Records), who also produced Courtship Ritual’s recent Album Of The Week, Pith. Below you can hear La Isla Bonita’s first single, “Exit Only,” which is a crunchy, stomping rock song led by Satomi Matsuzaki’s sugar-rush vocal delivery. Basically it’s classic Deerhoof, and it feels good to have them back.

The War On Drugs Under The Pressure Video
Aug 20, 2014 9:50am | StereoGum
The War On Drugs’ Lost In The Dream is one of the best albums that anyone has released in 2014, and the sprawling, gorgeous, nine-minute “Under The Pressure” might be its single greatest song. The new “Under The Pressure” video is a stark departure from the band’s last one, the knowingly goofy “Red Eyes” clip. This one is a somber zone-out that takes its time, with directour Houman alternating images of the band members playing alone in rooms with non-representational light-bending footage that seems to quote old experimental films. Check it out below.

Thurston Moore announces new album and tour dates, listen to The Best Day
Aug 20, 2014 9:43am | Cosequence Of Sound
Former Sonic Youth leader Thurston Moore has announced the release of his first new solo album in four years. Entitled The Best Day, the follow-up to 2011’s Demolished Thoughts will arrive on October 21st via Matador Records.
Moore record the album with Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Googe, and UK musician James Sedwards. Aptly dubbed The Thurston Moore Band, those three musicians will also accompany him on the road for dates in both Europe and America.
According to a press release, The Best Day “radiates with both his signature thrashing electric guitars as well as blissful 12-string acoustic ballads.” That’s certainly holds true based on our first two listens of the LP. While “Detonation” was a wall of wailing guitars, the album’s title track is a melodic alt rocker. Listen below.
The Best Day Tracklist:
Moore has also expanded his upcoming tour, adding a leg of East Coast shows for October. See the updated itinerary below.
