Wire to curate Brighton festival, will collaborate live with Swans
Sep 17, 2014 8:41am | Fact Magazine

Since last year, Wire have been running periodic DRILL festivals, affording them the opportunity to big up their favourite artists old and new.

Previous iterations have taken place in London and Seattle, and now you can add Brighton to that list. The DRILL: BRIGHTON festival will run from December 7-10, and will feature a broad spread of artists handpicked by the band and promoters One Inch Badge.

The big coup on the bill are enduring industrial rockers Swans, who will be performing off the back of this years rollicking To Be Kind. Thats not all: theyll be appearing alongside Wire for a one-off live performance of the latter’s ‘Drill’, which should have fans of vintage post-punk in conniptions.

Elsewhere, the current manifestation of electro-prog favourites Goblin will be performing their hair-raising classic Suspiria – a high placer in our best albums of the 1970s list - in its entirety. Mercury nominee East India Youth will be showcasing maudlin cuts from his debut album Total Strife Forever, and Gold Panda will be offering detailed, brocaded beat music. Psych outfit Grumbling Fur will explore the outer regions, Ulrich Schnauss will represent the shoegazers, and Savages and Toy will provide succour for the indie crowd. Oh, and Wire will be there, of course.

Talks, exhibitions and films are also promised. Tick...

Watch Jessie Ware & BenZel Break Down Say You Love Me
Sep 17, 2014 8:36am | StereoGum

Jessie Ware broke down her new song “Say You Love Me” for The Guardian’s Behind The Beat video series. The song was co-written by Ed Sheeran and produced by BenZel (Benny Bianco and Two Inch Punch, who both appear in the video). “My voice is definitely more up front in this record and that was really scary for me at the beginning,” Ware said. “I was obsessed … addicted to reverb and Benzel were like, ’No, we’re pulling this back.’” She also reveals that Bianco’s father and brother are part of the group of voices singing at the climax of the song. Watch the video below.


Mineral had their van broken into, gear stolen

Mineral at Riot Fest Chicago 2014 (more by James Richards IV)

Mineral are in the midst of their first tour in 17 years which began with four nights in NYC (after a surprise hometown show in Austin), hit Riot Fest Chicago this past weekend, will hit Fun Fun Fun Fest (Nite shows included), and more. Unfortunately, they've now run into some bad luck. The band posted on Facebook:

ALERT: After our show this evening in St Louis at the Firebird we went to celebrate Chris' birthday by going bowling at Flamingo Bowl. Shortly after 1am our van was broken into and all of our belongings were stolen. Thousands and thousands of dollars in personal electronics, a cash box with several shows worth of merch sales, clothing, invaluable intellectual property, and many many other items. Our rear cargo hold with most of the gear was thankfully left safe. The van was locked, we specifically paid to park in a well lit lot with an attendant. When we came out 30 min later, attendant was gone, locks popped off, and belongings gone. Please if anyone in the area has any information email us at There have been many burglaries targeting band vehicles and clubs in the St Louis area, please repost/share and help spread the word so other traveling bands are more aware and alert of their surroundings and decision making.
Total bummer to hear. Best of luck to them.

Celeste Whats Your Poison
Sep 17, 2014 8:33am | Abeano

Co-produced by faceless Londoner Tev’n, the second track to surface from Brighton-based singer-songwriter Celeste features all the hallmark chimes, spacious beats, chopped vocals and icy synth wobbles that made his Solitude mixtape such a diamond in the rough. The star here, though, is Celeste’s bottle-swilling voice: the song is built around an age-old love/addiction trope, but there’s a timeless weary glamour to the 19 year old’s voice as she intones, “all I’m sippin’ is youuu.”

Interpol release video for Twice As Hard watch
Sep 17, 2014 8:32am | Cosequence Of Sound

Riding high off the release of El Pintor, Interpol has revealed a new video for “Twice As Hard”. Self-directed by frontman Paul Banks, it proves once and for all that Interpol is great gym music. Watch below.

Interpol just kicked off an extensive North American tour in support of El Pintor – though based on early reports, it seems as if new bandmate David Letterman has already gone the way of Carlos D. See the full tour itinerary here.

Run The Jewels Might Make A Version Of Their Album With Nothing But Cat Noises
Sep 17, 2014 8:18am | StereoGum

Next month, Run The Jewels, the duo of El-P and Killer Mike, will release RTJ2, their second album as a group. It’ll be available as a free download, but there are plenty of deluxe versions of the album available for anyone who feels like owning a physical version of it. Some of those versions are real, and some are deeply, obviously ridiculous; nobody, for instance, is likely to pay El-P and Killer Mike $50,000 to open a private detective agency. One of those joke packages, though, may well happen for real. El-P and Killer Mike might record a new version of their album with nothing but cat noises.


Public Enemy bring the noise to Fallon watch
Sep 17, 2014 8:17am | Cosequence Of Sound

Believe it or not, but Jimmy Fallon and Public Enemy go way back: the seminal hip-hop group appeared on Late Night on numerous occasions, and Fallon himself introduced Public Enemy at the 2009 Hip Hop Honors.

To mark the 30th anniversary of Def Jam Records, Chuck D, Flava Flav, and the rest hit The Tonight Show for the first time last night. They teamed with The Roots to perform “Public Enemy No. 1″ from their landmark debut LP, Yo! Bum Rush the Show, and it was great. Watch the replay below.

The 30th anniversary of Def Jam will also be celebrated with a massive new archival box set along with an all-star concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on October 16th.

ICYMI, Public Enemy are the subject of two recent features on CoS. Chuck D’s ongoing feud with NYC’s Hot 97 is dissected in a recent installment of our new online zine, The Plug. Meanwhile, in his newSound to Screen column, Dominick Mayer discusses how Public Enemy gave a voice to the static between love and hate with their inclusion in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing.

Kendrick Lamar may be releasing new single (i) (love myself) next Tuesday
Sep 17, 2014 8:08am | Fact Magazine

Kendrick Lamar‘s long-awaited follow-up to Good Kid, M.A.A.D City could be arriving sooner than expected.

If reports from the Pulse Music board are to be trusted, Interscope Records-run website PlayIGA accidentally leaked details of Lamar’s new single, which is entitled ‘(i) (love myself)’ and is set to drop on Tuesday September 23 at 8am ET.

This would be the first taster of Lamar’s follow-up to the massively acclaimed Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, a record that managed to garner almost universal praise when it dropped back in 2012. Over the last year Lamar has been relatively quiet, appearing recently with Flying Lotus and hinting that more material may be in the works, but keeping relatively tight-lipped about his own delicate second album.

The Point (members of MEN & The Lisps) releasing debut LP (stream a track), playing shows including opening for EMA
Sep 17, 2014 8:03am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

When he's not making music with JD Samson as MEN, Michael O'Neill makes pretty electronic pop with his girlfriend (and onetime Lisps singer) Sammy Tunis as The Point. Their debut album, Pretty Marsh, is out September 30 via Hope for the Tape Deck and is comprised of their first two EPs plus new songs as well. We've got the premiere of "I'm Sky" from it, and it can be streamed in this post. The song was produced by Gary Olsen (Ladybug Transistor) at his Marlborough Farms studio and cowritten by Kyle Forster (Crystal Stilts, Ladybug Transistor). Says O'Neil about the track:

I'm Sky is a bittersweet love song that Sammy and I wrote for each other about taking love for granted. The hustle of what it means to be creatives in this city often clouds our ability to be good partners. The song is really about the times where all of that seems to vanish, and we feel joyful, open and limitless.
You can catch The Point live tonight (9/17) at Cameo with Color War, and then they'll play Bowery Ballroom on October 5 where they'll open for EMA and Doldrums (tickets).

Album art and "I'm Sky" stream below...

Report: Kendrick Lamar to release new single (i) (love myself) on Tuesday, September 23rd
Sep 17, 2014 7:49am | Cosequence Of Sound

New music from Kendrick Lamar could arrive much sooner than expected, as the Compton rapper is rumored to be releasing a new single entitled “(i) (love myself)” on Tuesday, September 23rd.

According to Pulse Music, Interscope Records’ website PlayIGA prematurely leaked details of the single on its website. The single’s existence has also been reported by HipHop-N-More and video production company watchLOUD.

Representatives for Interscope Records did not immediately respond to our requests for comment.

If true, “(i) (love myself)” would mark the first single off Kendrick’s highly-anticipated sophomore album. According to a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the album is filled with “aggression and emotion,” along with production from Dr. Dre and Lamar’s Top Dawg Entertainment affiliates.

Below, listen to Kendrick’s recent collaboration with Flying Lotus, “Never Catch Me”.

And this one timethe best Bandcamp releases of the month: September 2014
Sep 17, 2014 7:30am | Fact Magazine

In his regular column for FACT, writer Laurent Fintoni tackles Bandcamp, a platform that allows artists to sell music direct to fans, and which, more than ever, is becoming a go-to site for both independent musicians and independent music fans. Each month, hell pick out some of the months best and most interesting releases from the platform.

And this one time on Bandcamp we went down a rabbit hole and never came back out. Who needs reality when you have the internet after all? This month, we grapple with a snapshot of underground dance music from the American northwest, psychedelic shoegaze from Karachi, martial art beats from Detroit, haunting chamber music from Germany, a big cup of dance music juice with all your favourite sonic vitamins from Fukuoka, straight rap from Bas-Canada and the return of a beatmaker long thought lost to the cause. Oh and devotion.
