DiScover: Parlour
Jul 25, 2014 4:39am | Drowned In Sound

Ahead of tonight's performance at the DiS-curated AIM Awards show at The Lexington, which will be headlined by those magnificent Scots The Twilight Sad, we caught up with openers Parlour to find out a little more about the band who manage to blow The Doors off of Murray Street by blasting their pyramid of glittering psych-gaze into the stratosphere... Or to put it another way, click play on this, turn it up, turn it up some more and head off into deep space:

DiS: If your band was a reception room, how would it be furnished?

Angela: Can it just be a James Turrell skypace please? This is fantasy, right? Hes an artist who makes these rooms you can sit in with a big opening in the ceiling, and manipulates the light so your perception of colour and depth of the sky above changes. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow but theres a constant progression, but actually the sky above has never really changed and youve been looking at the same thing the whole time. It is quite hard to explain, and its not something you can really photograph or video, you have to experience it. Anyway, that please.

DiS: From chatting to you at the DiS Christmas Party, your band seems to be made up of people who are in or have been in involved with 100s of other bands. Please pick some songs for an extra curricular mixtape.

I played guitar in Carousels.

I did some guest vocals on one of Rorys ...



Where It Came From: The inside story of Popcaans amazing debut album
Jul 25, 2014 4:36am | Fact Magazine

Last month, Andre Popcaan Sutherland released one of the best albums of the year.

Popcaan has been one of the worlds most popular dancehall artists for a few years now, emerging in 2010 with songs like Dream and Gangster City before breaking through with an appearance on Vybz Kartels ‘Clarks’. He would soon surpass his mentor on Ravin, his version of Kartels Summer Time; Ravin and Party Shot would ensconce him as The Ravin King.

But despite his growing profile, listeners outside of the dancehall world only became familiar with him a year and a half ago, thanks to appearances on Snoop Lions Lighters Up and Pusha Ts sinister, Young Chop-produced Blocka. His intro to the latter was sampled by Kanye West on Yeezus cut Guilt Trips, and soon the world was asking, who is Popcaan?

In June, Popcaan released his debut album, Where We Come From, via Brooklyns Mixpak Records. The album is getting played everywhere from Kingston to Kings County thanks to summery, synth-laced riddims and Popcaans wide-ranging lyrics, which bound from the usual party-starting anthems to more socially-conscious fare. Unlike most dancehall records, it feels like a statement of purpose, more an album than a collection of singles.

We spoke with Mixpak boss / executive producer Dre Skull (who served in the same role on...
