Listen: Mister Lies Deepend
Aug 28, 2014 1:12pm | CMJ

Mister Lies, the bedroom project of Nick Zanca, is following up its 2013 LP, Mowgli, with a release on Orchid Tapes. The new album will be called Shadow, and if its first single is any indication, the LP will see Zanca drifting from his space-glitch instrumentals of the past and shifting to a softer, internalized sound. Deepend features shyly pained vocals from Zanca that sound as if, at any moment, they might tear in half. Shadow drops this October. Listen to Deepend below.

David Lynch almost directed Kanye Wests video for Blood on the Leaves
Aug 28, 2014 1:09pm | Cosequence Of Sound
David Lynch has not been shy about his admiration for Kanye West.
During a lengthy talk at the Brooklyn Academy of Music back in April, the acclaimed Blue Velvet filmmaker openly praised Kanye and the Yeezus highlight “Blood on the Leaves”.
“I love ‘Blood on the Leaves'”, he raved. “I just think it’s one of the most modern pieces and so minimal, so powerful but at the same time so beautiful. It’s a great, great song.”
It turns out Lynch’s love for the song almost led to a real-life collaboration with Kanye. Keyword: Almost.
In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Lynch revealed he was asked to direct the video for “Blood on the Leaves”. Being the big Kanye fan that he was describing the brazen Chicago MC as “just ridin the wave and not takin no for an answer” Lynch diligently went to work. However, the video never came to fruition because he was unable to “come up with ideas” he believed Kanye would like. “I feel I let him down a little bit,” Lynch added.
Here’s his full account of the epic project that could have been:

SOHN is a British-born and Vienna-based dance producer who got some shine for remixing Disclosure and who released his debut album Tremors earlier this year. Today, he’s shared a non-album loosie called “The Chase,” a warm, bubbling synth-soul track with some lovely adult-contempo vocals and a strong sense of atmosphere. Give it a listen below.
Documentary series explores history of Japanese video game music, feat. Flying Lotus, Dizzee Rascal, Just Blaze and more
Aug 28, 2014 1:04pm | Fact Magazine
Diggin’ In The Carts premieres September 4.
Leave it to the Red Bull Music Academy to take everyone to school. RBMA has announced a six-episode documentary series called Diggin In The Carts that tells the stories of the men and women behind Japan’s greatest musical export: video game music, from the 8-bit era to today.
We want to show that these Japanese men and women had an incredible influence on the global culture and on some of the biggest names in modern music, says series creator Nick Dwyer. The series comes in advance of this year’s RBMA takeover of Tokyo.
The series features Japanese composers Hirokazu Hip Tanaka (Tetris, Metroid), Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage), and Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy) alongside some of the underground heroes influenced by them: Flying Lotus, Dizzee Rascal, Just Blaze, Joker, Fatima Al Qadiri, Kode9, Havoc, J-Rocc and Ikonika.
Watch a trailer below; the first episode will debut on September 4. Earlier this year, FACT had video game obsessive Ryan Hemsworth interview Donkey Kong composer David Wise.

Members Of Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Bon Iver To Play Basketball For Charity
Aug 28, 2014 12:54pm | StereoGum
Win Butler never met a Canadian celebrity basketball game he didn’t want to take part in, and next month, he’ll share the court with some fellow indie rock heavy hitters at this year’s Pop Vs. Jock charity game. The game is an annual part of the Pop Montreal festival, and both Win and Will Butler will play for the Pop team, as they have in years previous. As Exclaim! reports, Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture, another veteran of the game, will also play, as will Bon Iver’s eternally busy Justin Vernon. Spurs role player and noted indie rock superfan Matt Bonner will coach the Pop team. The game goes down 9/20 at McGill University Sports Centre.
Wannabe Jalva On Porto Alegre, Brazil

In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on whats going on sonically in their hometowns. This week, Felipe Puperi of psychedelic space-groovers Wannabe Jalva, clue us to the sitch in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Their new album, Collecture, will be out October 15.
Porto Alegre is well known as the capital of Brazilian rock.
That explains a lot about what kind of bands and genres predominate
here. The city is full of great people and great music. There are
only a few record stores and not too many venues (except huge
ones), which makes it difficult for new artists. Currently its
possible to go watch shows of old-school acclaimed bands as well as

Bruce Springsteen to release graphic novel

Torn Hawk Im Flexible
Aug 28, 2014 12:34pm | StereoGum
Experimental guitarist Luke Wyatt aka Torn Hawk might get the award for most accurate song title of the week. “I’m Flexible,” the first single off his upcoming Let’s Cry And Do Push Ups At The Same Time, mangles synths, drum machines, and guitar playing in the same way he has through many releases, but here it hits with a muscular heaviness. It’s a beautiful piece of music filled with sounds that are grindingly abrasive. The dichotomy makes “I’m Flexible” a song that you can sit with and appreciate for all of its art, or simply enjoy the aural wonder. The best comparison from this year is probably Mark McGuire’s Album Of The Week Along The Way, but Wyatt covers much more ground. It conjures the same inward-looking space sounds of pre-Replica Oneohtrix Point Never, but with the a pure-pleasure electronica that reminds you how great that first Ratatat album was. This is around the time of the year when I expect the unexpected, a late in the season game changer that makes me reconsider what my favorite recent music is. That might have just happened. Listen to it below soundtracking one of Wyatt’s “visual mulch” constructions.
James Murphy making music based on data from US Open tennis matches
Aug 28, 2014 12:25pm | Brooklyn Vegan
After dabbling in film and coffee, James Murphy has finally gotten back to making music. Sort of. Murphy has teamed up with some big brains at IBM to generate music based on game data from 2014 US Open matches which is happening as we speak out in Forest Hills, Queens. (Did they pick him for his fondness for wearing white?) The project, called The US Open Sessions, uses every point, ace and foot fault to create bleeps and bloops coming out of your speakers. (It's very bleepy and bloopy.) Some 400 hours of it will be generated by the end of things on September 8. It's being generated live, so if you're watching on TV and want a soundtrack to it, here you go. The matches' music is archived as well. For more on this, a short video of how this all came about can be watched in this post.
In related news, we weren't able to get James to sit on our City Gardens Q&A panel at AMC Loews Village 7 tonight (8/28), but we do hope he comes to watch the documentary about the club he once worked at as a bouncer.
US Open Sessions video below...
