Mac from Superchunk covers Sisters of Mercy for Halloween (listen)

Mac McCaughan @ HiFi during CMJ (via
I make no bones about my love of '80s goth: Bauhaus, Siouxsie, Xymox, Xmal Deutchland, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, The Bolshoi etc...I'm all for it. (Fields of the Nephilim, not so much.) But my favorite is probably The Sisters of Mercy whose first two albums -- 1985's First and Last and Always and (especially) 1987's Floodland -- are pretty much stone-cold classics that I can listen to anytime of the year, but I tend to OD on around Halloween. I was, in fact, listening to them today when I saw that Superchunk frontman and Merge mogul Mac McCaughan had just posted a cover of "First and Last and Always" on his soundcloud. Mac keeps the inherent drama but gives it the Portastatic treatment, stripping it down to acoustic guitar and synths. You can stream it below.
Mac was just in NYC for CMJ, playing a solo show at HiFi. Anybody catch his set? Mac's take on the Sisters, plus a mix of classic '80s goth for your Halloween listening, below..

M.A.P.S. noise series continuing w/ Reverse Baptism, FFH, Gene Pick, Corephallism, Sickness & more
Oct 31, 2014 10:30am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Rob Sperry-Fromm
The noise-oriented M.A.P.S (Metropolitan Audio Pain Source) series will continue in November with performances from a Baltimore-centric lineup. The show is in NYC on November 8 at Trans Pecos and will feature performances from Reverse Baptism, FFH, Corephallism, Gene Pick, Field Grave, Spiteful Womb and Sickness. Tickets for this show are currently on sale.
Reverse Baptism are a power electronics/spoken word project from Jason Crumer of Facedowninshit and various other harsh noise projects. FFH, also from Baltimore, definitely fall on the more abstract end of the harsh noise spectrum, providing distorted vocals and thick washes of dissonant sound. The final Baltimore band, Gene Pick, traffic in a John Wiese-like type of noise that's more evenly distributed and paced, building a progression into madness from a series of harsh blips and hits that evolve into something more enveloping. Masssachusetts-based Corephallism bring a slightly more melodic, more metal-influenced sound (somewhat along the lines of Prurient) into the fray. This is an extremely varied lineup, with each out-of-town act bringing something unique to the table.
These shows are leading up to the big M.A.P.S. festival on December 13 at Trans Pecos. Updated lineup for that, and streams of the artists playing the 11/8 show, below.

Dizzee Rascal Couple Of Stacks Video
Oct 31, 2014 10:28am | StereoGum
At this point we are all well aware that Dizzee Rascal puts out some hyper-stylized and weird, objectively “cool” music videos, like the one that we saw last year for “I Don’t Need A Reason.” However, his new video manages to exit the realm of the “weird and cool” and can instead be found categorized under the “supremely fucked up.” The video for “Couple Of Stacks” was directed by Emile Sornin, and is well-suited for a Halloween premiere — its content is so gory that it comes accompanied with a note of caution. Taking on exhausted horror movie tropes, Dizzee Rascal sneaks around a haunted mansion while brutally murdering its inhabitants in a variety of somewhat humorous, mostly disgusting ways. What I find to be particularly disturbing about the video is not so much the fact that these deaths are nausea-inducing (albeit slapstick), but rather, that every single person murdered in the video just so happens to be an attractive young woman. Oh, and two guys get some of their appendages chopped off. Maybe that’s just another horror movie trope that I’m looking too far into, but I doubt it. You can watch the video on Noisey.
U2s Concert Reviews: Bono Loves Future Islands, The Edge Thinks Neutral Milk Hotel Arent That Great
Oct 31, 2014 10:23am | StereoGum
It’s become so easy, of late, to think of U2 in international-corporation terms that it’s weirdly surprising to imagine them as human beings who listen to music sometimes. But in a new Rolling Stone story, both Bono and the Edge have a few words on younger bands. Bono, for instance, is all the way into Baltimore synthpop weirdos Future Islands, which means Bono has good taste: “Have you seen them? That song, ’Seasons’? A miracle, that is.” Yes, Bono! Yes, it is! I can’t wait for “The Miracle (Of Samuel T. Herring)” to open the next U2 album. Meanwhile, the Edge went to Coachella this year, and he spent enough time watching Neutral Milk Hotel to dismiss them as “strange hippie stuff.” Here’s what he says:
The BBCs rescore of Drive is the most horrifying thing youll see this Halloween
Oct 31, 2014 10:12am | Fact Magazine
The controversial rescore of Drive aired last night on BBC Three.
Masterminded by Zane Lowe, the updated version of Nicolas Winding Refn’s modern classic has been stripped of its Cliff Martinez score and After Dark-inspired synth-pop, and now features a collection of exclusive new tracks by Banks, Baauer, Jon Hopkins, SBTRKT, The 1975, Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, CHVRCHES, Eric Prydz, Foals, Laura Mvula and The Neighbourhood.
The bold idea didn’t go down too well with fans of the film when it was announced earlier this month, prompting Lowe to defend the concept as a parallel experience that you can choose to watch or not.
Decision time, then, because the movie was broadcast on BBC Three last night. Perfect timing if you’re looking for a Halloween frightfest watch if you dare on iPlayer (um, but only in the UK, of course).
Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Warg sentenced to over three years in jail
Oct 31, 2014 10:10am | Fact Magazine
The charges are for hacking, not copyright infringement.
Gottfrid Warg, the co-founder of torrent mecca The Pirate Bay, has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison for hacking into Swedish tech giant CSC. He and a co-defendant downloaded police and social security files in what prosecutors say is the “largest hacking case to date”.
The hacking incident took place in February 2012. Warg and his lawyers maintained that he didn’t steal the files, alleging that his computer had been taken over by another hacker; the judge and jury found it “unlikely” that others were involved.
Previously, Warg was arrested in Cambodia and deported to Sweden, where he served a jail term for copyright theft; he also had a two-year sentence for hacking into a bank’s computers reduced to one year. In November 2013, he was deported to Denmark to face charges in the hacking case. [via BBC]

Watch Big Talk singer Conway sample the sounds of Bermuda
Oct 31, 2014 10:00am | Fact Magazine
In the latest edition of Bacardi and Noisey’s Music World series, host Mr. Green is joined by ‘Big Talk’ singer Conway in Bermuda.
As ever, the plan of action is to create music based on what they find on their travels, from field recordings to appearances on local radio stations. At one point a dive into the sea gets sampled and re-used as a clap, which makes the usual Tuesday browse through Freesound seem a bit pathetic in comparison. Watch the video above to find out how things end up sounding, and head here for more information on the #BarcadiTriangle project.
Download Chief Keef Back From The Dead 2 & Big Gucci Sosa Mixtapes
Oct 31, 2014 9:51am | StereoGum
Chicago drill star Chief Keef isn’t going to let a little thing like being dropped from his label stop him. Today, Keef has two new mixtapes out in the world. We already knew he was readying Back From The Dead 2, the sequel to the 2012 mixtape that helped put Keef on the map. We already posted one track, the Gucci Mane collab “Paper,” but that turns out to be the only collaboration on the whole tape. Keef produced much of the tape himself, as well. But speaking of Gucci, it turns out that Keef has another mixtape out today as well: Big Gucci Sosa, a full-length collaborative tape with the incarcerated Gucci. This one is presumably all repurposed vault material, whereas Back From The Dead 2 is an all-new full-length statement. Still, two new Keef tapes! That is a bounty of material! Check out both of them below.

Experimental synth artist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has a lot of cool projects coming up. She's working on music for the film Brasilia: City of the Future which was co-written by and starring Reggie Watts and directed by Brooklyn filmmaker Benjamin Dickinson. She helped electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani prepare for a European tour and has a collaboration with her in the works.
