New Order sign to Mute for dance-based new album
Sep 2, 2014 10:08am | Fact Magazine


Big day over at Mute Records: the legendary independent label have signed dance-rock mainstays New Order. The news was announced by Mute boss Daniel Miller at a press conference earlier today.

The band’s next record – their 10th, if you include last year’s offcuts set Lost Sirens - will be their first since Peter Hook’s acrimonious departure circa 2007. According to Sumner, the band’s new record will see them tilt the emphasis back in favour of the dancefloor:

“We made a conscious decision with this next set of material for it to be more synth and dance-based. More dance orientated and keyboard orientated. We’re pretty excited about that.”

Miller – whose previous signings include Depeche Mode, Swans, Plastikman and Nick Cave – has spoken about the process behind the link-up:

“This is an exciting new chapter for both Mute and New Order and I feel privileged to be working with artists with such a long, creative and successful history. When the possibility of us working together first came up, I was invited to hear some of the new material and immediately had no doubts whatsoever that Mute would be the right home for New Order. We’ve already had a number of creative conversations, and I am looking towards an exciting future.

The news followed rum...

Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders Come On Back This Way (Feat. Sharon Van Etten) Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 2, 2014 10:08am | StereoGum

Australian surrealist crooner Jack Ladder and his band, the Dreamlanders (including one of Stereogum’s favorite weirdos, Kirin J. Callinan) will return with their fourth album, Playmates, this fall. Album opener “Come On Back This Way,” one of two tracks featuring guest vocals by Sharon Van Etten, sets Ladder’s haunting baritone against jaunty karaoke-lounge synth sounds. It’s an eerie song in its own right, but Alex Smith’s video lifts it to Lynchian heights. Let Ladder and a lady entrance you below, and be sure to stick around for a pedal steel solo by a guy with a hook for a hand.


Stream Moleskins cinematic Satis House EP, forthcoming on Keysound
Sep 2, 2014 10:07am | Fact Magazine

After his first full EP on Goon Club Allstars, Moleskin makes a deadline day move to Keysound for a new record, Satis House.

If his debut was designed for the club, then Satis House‘s intentions are slightly more lofty. This EP is a small part of a larger (incomplete) body of work”, Moleskin explains in the press release, written between 11 and 14, originally conceived as a film score for a film I had put together in my head.”

That’s not to say Satis House won’t terrorise a club, however: we’ve seen fellow Keysounder Logos put ‘The Fantasy Between Your Lips’ to great uses in both clubs and on radio.

We’re premiering the stream for Satis House below; it’s out on September 8.

Spanish artist Holograma releasing new LP on Trouble in Mind (stream a track)
Sep 2, 2014 10:06am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Spanish artist Cráneo Prisma records under the name Holögrama, using synthesizers to accommodate "the most lysergic acid sounds and turn stained with nice melodies." It's also a little like Suicide (or Spacemen 3) but with a positive spin. Holögrama's debut album, Waves, will be out October 28 via Trouble in Mind and you can get an early taste via the blissed-out "In Your Head" which makes its premiere in this post. Stream it and check out album art and tracklist, below...

PC Musics Kane West shares free album, Western Beats
Sep 2, 2014 10:05am | Fact Magazine

Western Beats" width="685" height="385" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-227473" />

The first proper release from a DJ-producer with a double-take moniker.

Kane West emerged earlier this year, dropping ten minutes in that now-infamous PC Music radio show, and the DJ-producer has now shared a free EP/album entitled Western Beats.

To which definition(s) of “western” the title alludes is up for debate: over seven tracks and 30-odd minutes, Kane bounds across house, electro, and UK Funky with PC Music’s usual blend of video game samples, disembodied pop vocals, synth gymnastics, and commercialism commentary albeit without some of their divisive rambunctiousness.

Download the album and preview it below. Last month, FACT’s John Calvert ran down the label’s ten best tracks so far.

Watch Christopher Willits Planet Earth-meets-Koyaanisqatsi visual album
Sep 2, 2014 10:04am | Fact Magazine

The San Francisco multimedia artist shares the visual component of his latest project.

Today, Christopher Willits released OPENING, an audio-visual project that combines seven ambient tracks, 45 minutes of visual, seven photographs and a multi-sensory, multiple channel live performance.

We premiered the music last week, and now we’re proud to present the visual component: an abstract narrative film built from images and footage from Willits’ travels in California, Hawaii, Japan and Thailand.

“There are no actors or dialogue in this film,” he writes. “The audience and their perception is the main character, and everyone’s imagination is going to create some meaning that’s relevant to their own experience. My intention is to create a space where people can open up and expand into, relax and recharge.”

Watch the 45-minute film above; OPENING is out now via Ghostly.

Hannah Lou Clark Silent Type (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 2, 2014 10:01am | StereoGum

British rocker Hannah Lou Clark wrote “Silent Type,” the title track from her upcoming EP, about living above a Quaker meeting house and listening in on the quietly intense worship happening beneath her floorboards. The song itself isn’t silent, but it’s definitely a study in nervous energy and restraint, setting Clark’s coos against a slinky yet intense bass line, nervous stabs of guitar, and a maddeningly steady backbeat. The resulting alt-rock track feels like it’s always about to burst but mostly just builds and builds, mirroring what it must be like to be the “strong, silent type.” Put your ear to the ground and listen closely below.


Song : Pale : Two Wrongs
Sep 2, 2014 10:00am | My Old Kentucky Blog

London minimalistic R&B duo Alan and Lee aka Pale are a project you should be keeping tabs on. They have been putting out fantastic music for the past year or so and will be releasing a new EP, The Comeback, on September 9th available as a free download on their Soundcloud. “Two Wrongs” is the third song we have heard from the four-song EP that includes a collab with producer Eyedress, also. The song has a cold, almost industrial quality with edges being smoothed out by silky smooth vocals. Listen below.


Listen: Married To My Hack, written by Bob Dylan and performed by Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Jim James, and more
Sep 2, 2014 9:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

As previously reported, an all-star contingency of folk rockers recently converged to create music for two dozen newly discovered lyrics written by Bob Dylan.

Entitled Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes, the 15-track collection is the culmination of two-plus weeks of studio time by My Morning Jackets Jim James, Mumford and Sons Marcus Mumford, Elvis Costello, Dawes Taylor Goldsmith, Carolina Chocolate Drops Rhiannon Giddens, and super producer T-Bone Burnett. The lyrics in question date back to 1967, taken from the same period that spurred on the recording of Dylans iconic Basement Tapes.

In anticipation of the album’s release, the collective has already shared the Jim James-led “Nothing To It”. Today, Costello steps up to the microphone for “Married To My Hack”. Only the UK singer’s unique croon, which mixes complete cynicism with brooding intensity, could adequately purvey Dylans emotionally-nuanced take on married life and the ins and outs of romance itself.

Watch its accompanying lyric video below, which pairs brightly colored cartoons with dusty archival footage.

Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes will arrive November 11th via Electromagnetic Recordings / Harvest Records. The album is being accompanied by a Showtime documentary, set to debut on November 21st.  According to a press release, d...

Zammuto Anchor
Sep 2, 2014 9:51am | CMJ

It would be easy to say Nick Zammuto is still figuring things out. As the frontman and namesake behind Zammuto, he spends much of the project’s sophomore album finding a groove. Anchor is not, in fact, anchored in one thing in particular—rather, it jumps from prog-rock to avant-electro to art-pop and back to total chaos without warning. But throughout, there’s a sense of careful, patient precision that pokes several holes in this hypothesis.

Every move on the album is intentional and nothing is unchartered territory for Zammuto. Great Equator side swipes the apocalypse with a flitting hi-hat, video game synths and prophetic near-threats (“Gravity is only a theory in need of revisions”). Hegemony is both ethereal and academic, dappled with wild, uneven percussion and a chorus that’s just the word “hegemony” over and over until it sounds like some made up sound. Henry Lee (Trad.) is soft and gauzy, but with a pinching synth and tongue-y harmonies.

It’s clear his time as one-half of the Books still sits heavy in Zammuto’s consciousness. Electric Ant swings and clatters, and, even though it’s the most obvious narrative on Anchor, it’s structure is washed away by sandpaper percussion and vocals that shift from monotone to shrieking falsetto. As on their first album, Zammuto still appreciates a mechanical s...

Interpol The Depths
Sep 2, 2014 9:49am | StereoGum

Next week, the veteran New York brood-rockers Interpol will release their new album El Pintor, an LP that’s been the subject of a whole lot of discussion around here lately. El Pintor is already streaming online, and now the band has shared “The Depths,” a confident and sweeping song that’ll serve as a bonus track on some editions of the album. It includes the lyric “I met a waitress and she turned me on,” which immediately goes into contention for the “most Interpol lyric of all time” prize, thought it’s probably still not beating “the subway is a porno.” Listen to “The Depths” below.


Sleater-Kinney to reissue entire discography in new box set
Sep 2, 2014 9:47am | Cosequence Of Sound

Sleater-Kinney have announced plans to reissue their entire discography as a new vinyl box set. Entitled Start Together, the seven-LP collection will hit stores on October 21st via Sub Pop Records.

The box set will feature remastered versions of all seven Sleater-Kinney studio albums, pressed on colored vinyl. Also included is a 44-page hardcover book of rare photos from the band’s personal collections, along with an exclusive art print. Pre-orders are ongoing through the label’s website, but hurry: copies are limited to 3,000.

The remasters were carried out by engineer Greg Calbi (Lou Reed, Talking Heads, St. Vincent). Calbi discussed the process in an issued statement, saying, “For such ferocious music, it was actually a very delicate process. I found, in dealing with one of the earlier albums, that my signal path and compression, including my Burl B2 convertor, gave me a more resonant, deeper sound on the guitars than the originals.” He continued, “Because the band rarely, if ever, used bass, I felt that this added to the aggressiveness and power of the band overall. I believe this treatment added a subtle, yet important, dimension to the band, and I explored each of the other albums with the same intention.”

Sub Pop will also release the remastered albums on standalone CD and black vinyl. Starting today, the reissues are also available for purch...
