Black Dices Eric Copeland preps LP Black Bubblegum on DFA, shares sunny single On
May 3, 2016 1:07pm | Fact Magazine
The DFA mainstay sounds poppier than ever on his new Arthur Russell-influenced album.
Eric Copeland, best known as one of the founding noisemakers in Black Dice, will release his new solo album this summer.
Black Bubblegum follows 2013’s Joke In The Hole, but takes a sharp turn from his traditionally sample-based electronics for a brighter sounder sound built on keyboards, guitars and effect pedals.
As the first single ‘On’ makes clear, Copeland has shifted his interest towards the most pop-oriented music of his career. It still contains plenty of the psychedelic weirdness that you’d expect from one of the Black Dice, but the song’s bouncing beat and chirpy flute-melody are undeniable.
Using quickly jotted down phrases, Copeland described inspirations for the album including “Glam holes, glitter dreams, one hit wonders, LGBT disco parties, Jonathan Richman, Missing Foundation, Neil Diamond, New Orleans, poverty, getting pushed out of another Brooklyn neighbourhood no Beach Boys, no Beatles, no Buddha … more Bad News Bears adding that he was passing kidney stones for the entire recording in Brooklyn.
Look for Black Bubblegum July 8 via DFA, listen to ‘On’ below and revisit our interview with Copeland.

Fans discover secret artwork hidden within David Bowies (Blackstar) album cover
May 3, 2016 12:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Even after his death, David Bowies presence has been felt in unexpected ways, almost as if he intentionally hid a series of treasures for fans to discover. The Thin White Duke’s first-ever film was recently uncovered, as was a never before heard demo called “To Be Love”. Last month brought the posthumous release of a new video for single “I Can’t Give Everything Away”, and now, fans have found an easter egg hidden within the artwork of his final album.
As FACT points out, when placed directly under sunlight, the album’s blackstar artwork transforms into a field of glowing stars. Once the light source is removed, the stars fade away.
The discovery is just further proof that the artwork is much more complex than it initially appeared. The designer, Jonathan Barnbrook, discussed his process in a recent interview with Dezeen.
Its subsided a bit now, but a lot of people said it was a bullshit cover when it came out, that it took five minutes to design, Barnbrook said. “But I think there is a misunderstanding about the simplicity.
This was a man who was facing his own mortality. The Blackstar symbol , rather than writing Blackstar, has as a sort of finality, a darkness, a simplicity, which is a representation of the music.” Barnbrook explained some of the larger concepts tucked away inside those five black points, saying, The idea of mort...

Man uses lottery winnings to open record store in Cambridge
May 3, 2016 12:52pm | Fact Magazine
After winning £148 million in the Euromillions in 2012, Adrian Bayford has opened a record store in Cambridge.
Opening over the weekend, Black Barn Records deals second-hand albums, as well as music and film memorabilia. Bayford was already working in the music industry, running Suffolk Music Centre in Haverhill when he and his then-wife Gillian won the second-biggest jackpot in British history.
Earlier this year, Bayford purchased £10,000 of Lady Gaga merch, as well as rare photo of The Beatles signed by John Lennon right before he died: “Unlike a lot of the national chains who sell you what they want to sell we cater to what people actually want,” he told Cambridge News. “Not everyone wants to buy online, we offer a unique experience in the shop, catering from eight-year-olds to 80-year-olds.”
Bayford plans to open more record shops in the future and also hopes to open a vinyl pressing plant in the UK.

Radiohead goes analogue in Burn The Witch, their first new single in 5 years
May 3, 2016 12:30pm | Chart Attack
Last we heard from Radiohead or their frontman Thom Yorke, the band was exploring the glitchy electro-kraut soundways they'd been mapping since In Rainbows. Over the weekend, though, they deleted themselves from the internet. Something big was afoot. They'd gone totally analogue: their web page and Facebook and Twitter, all gone; their whole digital presence seemingly purged. Fans received mail-out leaflets mysteriously teasing something called "Burn The Witch."
And here it is: the first Radiohead single in five years.
In that same analogue spirit, it's a baroque '60s number, sweeping and melodromatic like Yorke singing over a Scott Walker composition. The video, too, belongs to that era, animated in the stop-motion style of the BBC's Trumptonshire. But you wouldn't call its depiction of English country life quaint.
"Burn The Witch," directed by Chris Hopewell, is a retelling of the 1973 British horror classic The Wicker Man. Wrought in cheery blobs of clay, the smiling, waving, perfectly cordial townspeople woo an outsider, then burn him as human sacrifice inside of a giant wooden effigy.
We can only hope the gift of his life encourages a bountiful crop (new Radiohead album) by next solstice.

Anthony Mackie set to play attorney Johnnie Cochran
May 3, 2016 12:28pm | Cosequence Of Sound
The life and legacy of Johnnie Cochran is louder than ever.
Earlier this year, FX and Ryan Murphy turned heads with American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, which brought the legendary criminal lawyer to life through a powerful and charismatic performance by Courtney B. Vance.
Now, it’s up to Anthony Mackie to follow in his footsteps. As Variety reports, the Captain America hero has agreed to play Cochran in an untitled film that zeroes in on one of his earlier court cases involving Signal Hill, CA circa 1981.
Long before he defended The Juice, Cochran aided a family who lost their son, Ron Settles, a young college football star who was found severely beaten and hanging in his jail cell the morning after his arrest. The police ruled a suicide.
Watching O.J. playwright and TV screenwriter David McMillan wrote the script. Currently, there’s no director attached but the film will be produced by The Firm’s Robbie Brenner alongside Jason Spire and Mackie himself.
Mackie can currently be seen in Captain America: Civil War.
