The month in Bandcamp: Purple metal, Orange Milk and here comes Dat Boi
May 25, 2016 12:02pm | Fact Magazine
Every month Miles Bowe rounds up the best of Bandcamp, unearthing the finest, freshest and weirdest releases the burgeoning DIY platform has to offer.
This month in Bandcamp is a mix of new and old faces, with exciting debuts alongside worthy follow-ups from artists featured in this column last year. Labels likes Dream Catalogue and Orange Milk deliver some of their best releases in recent memory, and a Bandcamp great makes a rare appearance with a new album.
Our release of the week is a blend of old and new too. It’s an artist who has appeared in this column and even topped it before, but here they explore something new entirely. In a sad coincidence, our release of the month is uniquely tied with the last — the gorgeous dream pop album Psychopomp from Japanese Breakfast. That album captured the grief of a daughter losing her mother, and now comes an entirely different sounding album written from a son to his late father. Listen to that and plenty more below.
Bandcamp Release Of The Month:
Love is not a burden / Love is a sun.
These might not be lyrics you’d associate with metal, but A ...

Mastodon, QOTSA, At the Drive-In supergroup Gone Is Gone share new song Starlight listen
May 25, 2016 11:40am | Cosequence Of Sound
Gone Is Gone is a new supergroup comprised of heavyweight rockers in Mastodon singer/bassist Troy Sanders, Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, and At the Drive-In drummer Tony Hajjar, and guitarist/keyboardist Mike Zarin. Though they formed only recently, their self-titled debut EP is set to hit shelves on July 8th via Rise Records.
Already we’ve heard the lead single off Gone Is Gone, a sludgy number called “Violescent”. On a recent Beats 1 radio show hosted by Savages Jehnny Beth, the four-piece unboxed another preview in “Starlight”. Here, quiet yet foreboding verses give way to a dynamite chorus and Sanders’ earthshaking growl.
Stream it below via Apple Music.
Beth also interviewed Van Leeuwen about the group’s songwriting process, formation, and … preference in pajama fabric. Check out a short clip of their discussion.

David Crosby mocks Neil Young over his Donald Trump comments
May 25, 2016 11:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
Yesterday, Neil Young made a surprise about-face. The activist rocker, who has publicly come out in support of Bernie Sanders, told Reuters that he’d be fine with Donald Trump using the music.
“Once the music goes out, everybody can use it for anything,” Young explained.
Young’s former bandmate, David Crosby, has now chimed in. Responding to a fan on Twitter, the Crosby Stills Nash and Young member wrote, “Everybody makes mistakes sometimes. There’s one.”
Last year saw the dissolution of Crosby Stills Nash and Young following several critical comments made by Crosby about his longtime bandmates. He referred to Young’s girlfriend Daryl Hannah as a purely poisonous predator.” Meanwhile, Nash told Dutch magazine Lust For Life that Crosby for “ripped the heart out of [CSNY],” adding, “Hes been awful for me the last two years, just fucking awful. Ive been there and saved his fucking ass for 45 years, and he treated me like shit.”

PREMIERE: Adrian Teacher & The Subs hit fast forward on gentrification
May 25, 2016 11:14am | Chart Attack
Adrian Teacher used to play in Apollo Ghosts and COOL TV, both venerable Vancouver bands, but with his new band The Subs he's able to take a wider, more sardonic gaze at the world and survey "a rapidly changing city, an endangered planet, faltering relationships and personal loss." And, especially, gentrification.
The video for "Terminal City," the title track from the band's upcoming You've Changed debut, speeds the process of gentrification to two and a half hilarious, teachable minutes of claymation.
Drawn to the "character" of an old Vancouver neighbourhood, young professionals open up their artisanal nuts shops, their artisanal oils shops, their artisanal marijuana dispensaries with their artisanal doctors on Skype, and before you know it giant babies are suckling craft beer and going Godzilla all over the block. Then everyone goes for pho.
Designed and animated by drummer/singer Sub Amanda Pezzutto, the 2:25 video took three painstaking months to make, while the song was recorded in "a few takes live to tape in Montreal on the hottest day of the year," Teacher remembers.
"First song the Subs learned together as a band, last song they play at the show."
"Terminal City, the last stop on the train...isolation now ends. Will Adrian surf the wave?"
Adrian Teacher & The Subs' Terminal City is out May 27 on You've Cha...

Real Estate announce departure of Matt Mondanile, replaced by Julian Lynch
May 25, 2016 11:05am | Cosequence Of Sound
Real Estate have announced that they’ve parted ways with founding member Matt Mondanile. In a statement, the band said that Mondanile would be focusing his energy on Ducktails, a project he began working on prior to Real Estate’s formation in 2009. Stepping in for the departing guitarist will be Julian Lynch, an accomplished musician in his own right who also happens to hail from the band’s hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey.
But consider this a bad news, good news situation, as Real Estate have also revealed new dates for their “Going Up the Country 2016” tour. The shows will find the new lineup traversing California from Santa Ana to Sonoma. What’s more, the announcement adds that the concerts are “a prelude to the recording of their next album, tentatively slated for early 2017.”
So though fans have to say goodbye to a long-time band member, they’ll soon be able to say hello to a follow-up to 2014’s Atlas. (And it sounds like we can expect more Ducktails material soon, as well.) Read Real Estate’s full statement below, followed by their complete tour itinerary.
“Having previously announced a short run of shows in California and a show at Red Rocks Amphitheater with The National, Real Estate expand on this by adding two further California dates. This limited run of dates is a prelude to the recording of their next album, tentat...
Hoodboi gets a hypnotic video for thumping new single Closer
May 25, 2016 11:00am | Fact Magazine
LA producer Roger Schami’s new single is a mesmerising tangle of heavy bass, frenzied dance beats and melodic vocals, so it’s only fair that the track now has a mesmerising video to accompany it.
Directed by SHINOSM, the clip for ‘Closer’ featuring New York duo ASTR, on what’s Hoodboi‘s first new music since last year’s celebrated Palm Reader EP sees artist Anny Wang’s artwork for the single morph into a CGI spectacle featuring underwater light-shows and electrical storms, witnessed from clouds.
“Initially, I reached out to Anny Wang to create the still artwork for ‘Closer’. We had worked together in the past on my first EP Palm Reader and the remix EP. The original concept for ‘Closer’ was two bodies reaching out towards each other, yet never truly touching and creating a sense of tension,” says Hoodboi. “Once it was time to create the video, I hit up Shin who I had worked with in the past on my side-project Athletixx.”
Hoodboi has also rounded up friends from around the globe to put their own spin on ‘Closer’ for a must-hear remix EP on Fools Gold. You can purchase the ‘Closer’ remix package here.
