What’re you feeling like today? It’s the day before the weekend, but chances are you’ve been up ’til 4 every night this week trying on different bands like new pairs of jeans. And there’s still more to go! Today you can check out skronky garage rock, sweet bedroom pop or big synth pop blares. Don’t you dare take a nap.

Purling Hiss @ Babys All Right

Crackling psych-pop pound with that Drag City odd edge, from Philadelphia.


Teen Commandments @ Living Room

Groovy Brooklyn synth pop with all the social anxiety of David Byrne at his most, well, anxious.


Heliotropes @ Matchless

This group of Brooklynites, led by Jessica Numsuwankijkul, send out reverb-laden garage missives with all the force of a t-shirt cannon enthusiast.


Aurora @ Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

Effervescent minimalist synth pop from this young, up-and-coming Norwegian singer.


Nude Beach @ Union Pool

Surfy, sunny, garage fan-outs from this Brooklyn band.


Bears Den @ Mercury Lounge

High-flying festival folk that will sweep you away on its emotional waves. Don’t fight it!


Foxes In Fiction @ The Shop

Warren Hildebrand’s bedroom project has yet to do anything wrong. He calls his music “healing pop,” we call it “the best fucking thing coming out of anyone’s bedroom right ...


GoGo Penguin - V2.0
Oct 24, 2014 6:50am | Drowned In Sound

Ahead of this year's Mercury prize, DiS in partnership with Naim Audio's new wireless music system, mu-so, will help you GoDeeper into 2014's nominated albums. Today, we would like to turn your attention to jazz trio GoGo Penguin. Visit our Mercury mini-site for our interview with the band, plus more coverage of all of this year's nominees.


You can almost hear them trying to resist the word jazz. They stretch their textures beyond the confines of their trio, moving into dance-based electronic and post-rock soundscapes. But being nominated alongside Polar Bear for this years Mercury Prize doesnt deflect from the obvious ways of labelling them. It highlights the comparison. GoGo Penguin are this years Mercurys New Jazz Act. And while the title V2.0 suggests a flick of the reset button from the sprawling influences of their lauded debut, the album actually sounds like a refinement of their styles into relaxed, stately arrangements. It gently resists the stereotypes of an improvisation-based piano trio, while accepting the pleasures of exploring its familiar contours.

The most obvious subversion of expected form is in the rhythm section. Almost all of this music is driven by a skittering, nervous break beat; more usually suited to electronics than sweeping piano licks. Early in the record, the suitably erratically titled Garden Dog Barbeque showcases the trio at its most hyperactive; with hammering keys sitting atop pounding left hand...

Britains tiniest vinyl record shop opens in Peterborough
Oct 24, 2014 6:30am | Fact Magazine

A shop claiming to be the UK’s smallest vinyl record shop has opened its, er, door.

Owner Matthew Hawton cut the ribbon of Marrs Plectrum Records this week in the garden of his house in Peterborough. “It was simply impossible to open a shop in the town centre,” he says of his miniature shopfront. “This way we can keep the costs down which is great for our customers.  I cant complain about the commute to work either.”

The recent growth in vinyl sales encouraged Hawton to launch a physical store. “For many of us, vinyl has never been away, but its popularity is certainly on the rise,” he says. “Its an exciting time for record collectors.

Despite its limited capacity, the shop stocks several thousand new and old vinyl records across all genres. Judging from the photographs, they’ve got LPs by Nas, St Vincent, De La Soul, Ramones, Morrissey, and Sleaford Mods twice, which is very commendable.

Its not just about the records that your mum and dad played,” adds Hawton. “New and relevant bands are all releasing their music on vinyl again. Its at the point where the pressing plants cant keep up with demand.  Thats why were mixing new releases with the classics and collectables.

The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and Saturday from 11am to 2pm find it at 387 Fulbridge Road, Peterborough, PE4 6SF. [via...

Gogo Penguin. Polar Bear. Jazz bands. Mercury Prize Nominees. The formula to their success? Names that include animals from our planet's extremities. Obviously. In all seriousness, the appearance of two jazz acts amongst the nominees may finally put pay to the Token Jazz Band tag that has hung over past jazz nominees like a bad smell. The Mercury prize purports to help give artists a boost in both sales and popularity, however previous TJBs (see Roller Trio, Gwilym Simcock, Led Bib - all by the way still very much active and still very good) have experienced a brief moment in the sun before drifting out of sight of the mainstream eye, forever 'Jazz Famous' and forever pre-fixed by 'Mercury Nominated'.

Polar Bear are of course no strangers to the award, having been nominated in 2005, and they are one of the few TJBs who have maintained a semblance of mainstream presence since then. The absence of a "who the fuck are Polar Bear?" reaction this time round said a lot about their enduring popularity and, it should be noted, fairly ...


Run the Jewels release new album RTJ2 as free download listen
Oct 24, 2014 5:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

The duo of El-P and Killer Mike (tka Run the Jewels) will technically will release their sophomore album, RTJ2, on October 28th via Mass Appeal. However, this morning, El-P tweeted a link to download the album for free. Grab it here.

Severing as the follow-up to the duo’s excellent 2013 self-titled debut, the 11-track effort features collaborations with Rage Against the Machines Zack de la Rocha (“Close Your Eyes”), Blink 182s Travis Barker, Beyoncé collaborator Boots, and Foxygen offshoot Diane Coffee.

In an interview with XXL, El-P described how people might react upon hearing the album for the first time:

They are going to jump out the window. They are going to run through the wall like the Juggernaut. Its a relentless record and its got some depth to it that we didnt touch on in the same way in the last album. Hopefully people just enjoy it and have an experience with it. We feel really lucky for having people paying attention. Were trying to make something beautiful for people and something that gets us excited about music. Hopefully people feel the same way. You can only hope for that, hope for the best and that people feel connected to what you are doing. I think people are going to be amped off this music in a sense its the type of music that amps you up. Theres some moments of beauty on here that Im really excited about. Me and Mike came together did some shit on here that ...

Einstürzende Neubauten to release World War I-inspired LAMENT on Rough Trade
Oct 24, 2014 5:25am | Fact Magazine

Prisoners’ testimonies used as source material in industrial icons’ new album.

Einstürzende Neubauten have announced a Rough Trade release for their WWI-themed composition that will have its premiere in Belgium next month.

Titled LAMENT, the piece is inspired by testimonies of prisoners of war dating between 1914 and 1916, which the band have been exploring in the sound archives at Humboldt University in Berlin and the Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv (German Broadcasting Archives).

The LP, which is set for release on vinyl, CD and digital on November 7, attempts to evoke “the filth and terror of the industrialized 20th-century world at war with itself,” says Rough Trade, adding that archaic nationalist songs, dadaist writing and algorithmic composition techniques were also an influence.

The piece will be performed in Diksmuide on November 8 as part of an event called Against The Neglection: Gone West, the Fall of Diksmuide 1914-2014, and then taken on tour across Europe  see the dates below. [via RA]

Tracklist:

01. Kriegsmaschinerie
02. Hymnen

Murlo made his own animated video for Into Mist and its brilliantly surreal
Oct 24, 2014 4:54am | Fact Magazine

He’s just showing off now.

By now everyone should know that Murlo is one of the most exciting new producers around, but they might not have realised that the boy’s got mad skills as an illustrator and animator too. To demonstrate, the Midlands-via-London grime producer has unveiled his own video for Boxed anthem ‘Into Mist’, the lead track on a new EP due on Rinse next month.

Immerse yourself in his surreal world of floating globules and marble statues above and hear another track from the EP, ‘Vertigo’. Don’t miss his FACT mix from the beginning of the year, either.
