Stream Logreybeams False Start [Remixed] featuring Twerk, Roel Funcken and more
Oct 20, 2014 12:26pm | Fact Magazine

Whether you like it or not, IDM is back.

Some would no doubt say it never really went away, but while it’s been certainly skulking in the shadows for the last few years, it’s right at the front and center of this latest collection from Californian operative Logreybeam (aka Gabriel Morley).

Entitled False Start [Remixed], Morley’s latest full-length is a collection of reworks of the False Start EP which emerged on False Industries in May, and is part of a series of albums for label Touched which will have proceeds donated to Macmillan Cancer Support centers in the UK.

So it’s all for a good cause, but the set of tracks is well worth a listen too, with reworks coming from the unmistakable Twerk and Roel Funcken (two producers featured on FACT’s recent list of the 100 best IDM tracks of all time), Swedish techno don Mikael Stavostrand, Ruxpin, Exercise One and loads more. It’s out officially tomorrow, but you  can snag it from Bandcamp now.



Freddie Gibbs & Madlib Knicks (Remix) (Feat. Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$ & Ransom)
Oct 20, 2014 12:22pm | StereoGum

Earlier this year, Freddie Gibbs and Madlib teamed up to release Piñata, their excellent collaborative album. One of the few album tracks that didn’t have any guest rappers was the floaty sneer “Knicks.” But now there’s a new version of the song with a bunch of other rappers. Gibbs and Madlib will release their Knicks Remix EP next month, and it includes a new version of the song, with a new Gibbs verse, as well as verses from Queens epicurean genius Action Bronson, Brooklyn boom-bap revivalist Joey Bada$$, and Jersey City formalist Ransom. Listen to the track’s new version below.

Hundred Waters playing Rough Trade during tour w/ Interpol (who have a new video)
Oct 20, 2014 12:14pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Hundred Waters at Pitchfork Fest 2014 (more by James Richards IV)

Hundred Waters will soon kick off their tour supporting Interpol which includes the two sold-out Terminal 5 shows (11/24 & 11/26). There's still no opener announced for the third, not sold out T5 show on 11/25, but we can probably assume it's not Hundred Waters, as they'll be headlining their own NYC show that day at Rough Trade NYC. Tickets for that show go on sale Wednesday (10/22) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.

In related news, Interpol just put the video for "My Desire" from their new album, El Pintor. The video was directed by Markus Lundqvist and can be watched below...

Swans announce new EP, share alternate version of Oxygen
Oct 20, 2014 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

On November 24th, Swans will release a new EP featuring several unreleased versions of “Oxygen”, the eight-minute epic from their latest LP, To Be Kind.

The four versions featured on the EP include a live recording from Spain’s Primavera Festival; an early demo frontman Michael Gira recorded at his home studio; an acoustic version; and an edit courtesy of Mute founder Daniel Miller, which is now streaming below. With said rework, Miller cuts the song’s gargantuan run time to a succinct three minutes while maintaining the original’s frantic spirit and manic energy.

Listen in below (via FACT).

Sleater-Kinney cement 2014 as the year of the Very Good Comeback
Oct 20, 2014 11:52am | Chart Attack

Washington punk group Sleater-Kinney disbanded in 2005. Since then, the short film I made in high school using their song "The Fox" from their last album The Woods has only grown in poignancy. Today, the band announced a new album No Cities To Love will be released in January on their old home Sub Pop, with a tour to follow (dates here with more to come).

The band's members have been busy making things you enjoy since the initial breakup. Carrie Brownstein started her sketch comedy show Portlandia with Fred Armisen, and another now-defunct band Wild Flag with Janet Weiss (who also plays in Quasi). Corin Tucker also continued playing loud in her Corin Tucker Band. But word got out last week that their career-retrospective box set Start Together would contain a hint to their reunion: a new 7" containing "Bury Our Friends." You can hear it below in a lyric video directed by and starring Miranda July as Unfrozen Cavewoman Yuppie.

Sleater-Kinney's new album No Cities To Love is out January 20 via Sub Pop. Pre-order it here.

Dirt Dress 12 Pictures (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 20, 2014 11:50am | StereoGum

L.A.-based trio Dirt Dress will soon release a new EP, Revelations, and today they share a track from that EP, “Twelve Pictures.” Compared to the band’s 2012 EP, Donde La Vida No Vale Nada, “Twelve Pictures” is a bit more upbeat, with a simple guitar melody and a brief saxophone interlude. The track marches forward with a peppy feel and a lo-fi sound. Listen.

Song : Ariel Pink : Black Ballerina
Oct 20, 2014 11:47am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Ariel Pink follows up “Put Your Number In My Phone” with this fantastic new cut “Black Ballerina”. It holds that quintessential Ariel Pink quirkiness. While it just dropped, we know this one is going to stick in the rotation for a while. It might be our favorite from him since “Round and Round”. The song will appear on his upcoming new double-LP, pom pom, out on November 18th via 4AD. Listen below.


Pianos Become the Teeth streaming 'Keep You' LP (listen)
Oct 20, 2014 11:47am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Pianos Become the Teeth already released "Late Lives" and "Repine" off their new scream-less album, Keep You (due 10/28 via Epitaph), and they've now made the whole thing available to stream over at Pitchfork. Here's a bit of what we've already said about the record:

Though the stylistic change may be jarring to some, it's also resulted in some of their best material yet. Turns out vocalist Kyle Durfey has an excellent singing voice, one that's powerful, passionate and sounds great at the forefront of their sound.
If you've dug either of the two singles, the full thing lives up and giving it a listen is highly recommended.

Pianos will be on tour soon, hitting NYC on their run with Frameworks and Gates on October 29 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still available.

All dates are listed, with streams of the two singles, below...

The New Lines & DC band Sansyou share collaborative single, playing NYC Halloween week show together (dates)
Oct 20, 2014 11:42am | Brooklyn Vegan

The New Lines (photo by Jenn di Donna)

You never know where inspiration may strike. The New Lines and DC band Sansyou have a new collaborative single, "Gowanus Canal Field Inspection," which was a direct result of an actual visit to the titular Brooklyn body of water by Sansyou's David Nicholas, who shared his thoughts on it with The New Lines' Hewson Chen. Conversation, lyrics and music flowed like dirty water and here we have it, a jangly two-minute pop number which premieres in this post. Stream it below.

The New Lines and Sansyou will play NYC on October 27 at Radio Bushwick, a Halloween show also featuring Winkie and Prima Primo. Then in December, The New Lines will head out with Dead Leaf Echo for a weekend tour that includes stops in Philadelphia and DC. All dates are listed, along with the new single stream, below...

Twin Peaks Making Breakfast Video
Oct 20, 2014 11:38am | StereoGum

As a rule, the Chicago garage rockers Twin Peaks (who should really consider changing their name now that the real Twin Peaks is coming back) make really good music videos. Their clips for “Flavor” and “I Found A New Way” are both dumb, sloppy fun, and even something as minimal as their new “Making Breakfast” video turns out to be way more watchable than it should be. Singer/guitarist Clay Frankel spends the entire video either living with egg mashed into his hair, which seems like a terrible way to live, or cooking breakfast on an outdoor grill, which seems like an amazing way to live. Past collaborator Ryan Ohm directs. Watch it below.

Song : Suixx : Hi
Oct 20, 2014 11:33am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Suixx is the moniker taken by Sydney’s Sarah Jullienne. Her latest song, titled “Hi”, is what we imagine it would sound like if Tame Impala and Beach House hooked up and mixed their sonic aesthetics. The song is just another example on how Australia has been killing it lately with its musical exports. Expect it to appear on her forthcoming debut EP slated sometime in the very near future, possibly before the end of the year. Stream below.

Q&A: Iceage On Snakes In The Music Business, Violence At Shows, And Plowing Into The Field Of Love
Oct 20, 2014 11:17am | StereoGum

Iceage are currently trekking across the United States (and a bit of Canada) in support of their excellent new album, Plowing Into the Field of Love. The album, the band’s third, shows them moving away from the brutish punk pummel of their first two albums and expanding their sonic palette to include things like mandolins, violas, and discernible lyrics. Even though Plowing isn’t necessarily a feel-good record (or even a pop record, as some have called it), it does feel like a deliberate step forward for the band and a move toward a kind of more accessible songwriting. Tracks like “Abundant Living” and “The Lord’s Favorite” have more in common with old school country music than hardcore, and Iceage’s videos flirt with a kind of ambiguous sexuality and, dare it be said, amorousness that would have been hard to imagine if you’d seen the band play live a couple of years ago. And while there was definitely something to be said for the punishing nature of New Brigade, there’s something equally compelling about frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt stepping out of the shadows and commanding the listener to, “Come here and be gorgeous for me now.”
