My Favourite Record: Waze & Odyssey
Oct 21, 2014 9:01am | Fact Magazine

My Favourite Record is a new feature where we ask musicians we rate from across the spectrum to pick their most cherished album – a development of our occasional On Record feature, and a chance to take a peek at the albums that maketh the artist. Today’s entry:

(Virgin, 1997)

Picked by: UK house bump ‘n’ grinders Waze & Odyssey. 

“This album has been heaven and a hindrance at times. Heaven in the sense that all the techniques used on the album have helped in educating us along the way, from the very beginning. The arrangement of each track to the synths and drum machines used, and the styles of compression and FX that are used. It opened up our minds. Hindrance in the sense of not being able to apply it to any of our tracks in the same way, which has become more frustrating than you can possibly imagine.

You can remember the first time you heard it out, the first time it came on to the speakers. From clubs to house parties to home listening, it was a firm favourite when it first hit from Paris to Peckham, Brighton to Brixton. They turned their hand to lighter more melodic cuts while also showing us their adept skill at making full on big room screechy numbers.

We’ve dropped ever...

Hubie Davison readies Khayyam Grey EP of peak-time pleasures for Leisure System  stream Get On
Oct 21, 2014 8:58am | Fact Magazine

Irish producer Hubie Davison returns to Leisure System next month with his second release for the classy Berlin label.

The three-track Khayyam Grey EP has a dash of funk and soul in its blood, apparently drawing on Bill Withers and Otis Redding as much as the analogue-y house of Werkdiscs and Sound Signature, and features ‘Get On’, a riotous slab of peak-time psychedelia, which you can stream below.

The other two cuts are the title track, which the label says “takes cues from Daphni’s stand-up-and-shout, sample-heavy house”, and ‘Vowels’, which first appeared on the Leisure System compilation LSR-LSD1 and turns up here in extended and altered form.

Stream the luscious ‘Get On’ below and grab the Khayyam Grey EP from December 1.

Pangaea, The Field and Lucy to play forest rave Together at the Threshold
Oct 21, 2014 8:58am | Fact Magazine

You read that right – London’s Studio 338 are gearing up to provide a “forest rave” in the city.

Partnered with cider makers Kopparberg, Studio 338 have decided to knock up an “enchanted forest” on their massive terrace that should include more trees, ivy, vines, living walls, graffiti, videos and loads more. It’s all in aid of Together at the Threshold, which on Saturday October 25 brings a host of massive names to Greenwich. There’s Swedish innovator The Field, Italian techno producer Lucy, Brit bass don Pangaea, Jonas Kopp, Forward Strategy Group and FJAAK already signed up to provide musical accompaniment to the forest frenzy.

If you’ve not managed to snag tickets yet, you might want to head out to Phonica Records who are giving away an absolutely massive 100 tickets to the event. 50 of the “golden tickets” will be hidden inside random record sleeves throughout the store and 50 more will be given away to customers purchasing records from the artists who are playing Together at the Threshold. Better get digging then.

For more information, check the flyer below; head here to grab tickets.

Crowbar touring, playing Saint Vitus w/ 'NOLA' screening
Oct 21, 2014 8:52am | Brooklyn Vegan

Crowbar at Gramercy Theatre in September (more by Mathieu Bredeau)

New Orleans sludge mainstays Crowbar have spent much of 2014 touring behind their excellent new LP Symmetry in Black. Now they've announced yet another tour to go down before the year ends, this time with Unearth and Black Crown Initiate. That tour rolls into NYC on December 8 at Saint Vitus. The Vitus stop (presented by Noisey) will also include a screening of Noisey's 'NOLA' documentary, which was made by former BV writer Fred Pessaro and is really worth checking out. Tickets for that show will go on sale this Friday (10/24) at noon.

Crowbar also just put out a new video for "Symmetry in White" from their new LP, which you can watch below. The final NOLA episode will be revealed soon, but 'til then you can watch the latest episode, with the full list of tour dates, also below...

Charli XCX London Queen Lyric Video
Oct 21, 2014 8:45am | StereoGum

Charli XCX’s Ramones-inspired new single “London Queen” has been growing on me the more I listen to it. It’s certainly kitschy, but it’s also pretty damn catchy, even if the lyrics leave a lot to be desired compared to the goth-pop of something like “Nuclear Seasons,” which was Charli’s first major collaboration with producer and songwriter Justin Raisen. (He worked on some other songs from Charli’s first record, had a hand in “Boom Clap,” and co-produced Sky Ferreira’s debut alongside Ariel Rechtshaid.) The lyric video for “London Queen” is done in the colorful and bubbly animation style of basically every ’90s edutainment computer game. Watch below.


R.I.P. Orbital electronic duo announce breakup
Oct 21, 2014 8:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

British electronic duo Orbital have once again called it quits.

Co-founder Paul Hartnoll announced the group’s breakup Tuesday in a statement posted to their official website. “Weve had our ups and downs, and its not always been easy, but Ive loved my time with Orbital,” he wrote, before adding, “But nothing lasts forever and it’s time to stop.”

Comprised of Paul and his brother Phil, Orbital emerged out of London’s acid house scene in the late 1980s. The duo made a name for themselves thanks to their distinct knack for improvisation and roots in both electro and punk rock. They really hit their stride, however, with the back-to-back releases of their second and third LPs — 1993’s Orbital 2 and 1994’s Snivilisation — which featured several simultaneously charting singles and parlayed into soundtracking gigs for The Saint and Mortal Kombat, as well as a spot at Glastonbury.

Orbital initially broke up in 2004, but reunited in 2009 to headline The Big Chill Music Festival. They subsequently released what would be their final album, 2012’s Wonky, and performed at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony alongside Stephen Hawking.

In the same statement announcing Orbital’s disbandment, Paul Hartnoll also revealed the formation of a...

Orbital Break Up; Watch Paul Hartnolls 8:58 Video
Oct 21, 2014 8:28am | StereoGum

The British duo Orbital were one of the most important group’s of the early days of rave in the UK, and their 1989 single “Chime” was one of the anthems of its day. The group stayed busy throughout the ’90s and broke up in 2004, but they got back together in 2009 and released two more albums. But now, the brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll are once again calling it quits as Orbital. Paul, who has been composing music for movies and TV shows, is starting a solo project called 8:58, and his first track under that name, also called “8:58,” is a largely beatless piece of warm and sunny electronic music. Its new video, which has narration from the actor Cillian Murphy, is a piece of black-and-white expressionism about a couple who fantasize about leaving behind workaday drudgery and becoming, like, old-timey circus folk. Watch it below, and read some words from Paul Hartnoll.


Pearl Jam perform Yield front to back in Milwaukee watch

On Friday, Pearl Jam shocked fans attending their concert at Moline, Illinois by performing their fourth studio album, 1996’s No Code, in its entirety to kick off the set. According to Eddie Vedder, it marked only the second time in the band’s illustrious history that they had performed any one of their albums front to back in a live setting. Seems like the band enjoyed it as much as we did, because last night in Milwaukee, they gave a full performance of their fifth LP, 1998’s Yield.

Also of note was a cover of The Who’s “Baba O’Riley”, which featured a surprise appearance from Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen. It marked Nielsen’s second major gig in less than a week, as he also sat in with Foo Fighters for their Chicago club show on Friday night. Later, Vedder celebrated Tom Petty’s 64th birthday by covering “I Won’t Back Down”.

Watch fan-shot video from last night’s show along with the full 36-song (!) setlist below. Fans of 2000’s Binaural may want to grab tickets to PJ’s show in Denver tomorrow night — just sayin’.

Ringo Starr Is The New Face Of Skechers
Oct 21, 2014 8:19am | StereoGum

Ringo Starr is officially the new face of Skechers. According to a press release, the Beatles drummer “will be bringing his legendary talent and style” to the Skechers line of Relaxed Fit shoes. Star will join an esteemed group of endorsers that includes Britney Spears, Joe Namath, Pete Rose, and Mariano Rivera, all of whom have represented the Skechers brand in the past, which is mostly sold in shopping malls around the world. “We can’t wait for everyone to see how Ringo’s charm and cool charisma makes him the perfect ambassador for Relaxed Fit,” the statement says. His campaign begins in the spring, when he’ll appear in his first TV commercial for the shoe company. Hope the paycheck was worth it… (It probably was.)
