Korallreven Death Is Not For Us
Sep 17, 2014 9:55am | StereoGum

The Swedish duo Korallreven landed on our radar three years ago by making beautifully floaty and breezy synth music. They’ve been quietly pumping out tracks since then, and they’ve now announced plans to follow up An Album By Korallreven, their debut, with a sophomore effort called Second Comin’. The new LP will feature collaborations with Cornelius (with whom they worked on the 2013 single “Try Anything Once“) and the I Break Horses singer Maria Lindén. The album’s first single has the impressive title “Death Is Not For Us,” and it adds some darker undertones to a sound that still shimmers. Listen to it below.


Hear PC Musics Danny L Harle tear apart Kero Kero Bonitos Sick Beat
Sep 17, 2014 9:51am | Fact Magazine

Bilingual London trio Kero Kero Bonito dropped their reworked debut full-length Intro Bonito earlier this Summer to a wave of acclaim.

It hit at just the right time, catching a wave of interest in the PC Music stable (who Kero Kero Bonito are loosely related to) and in far-Eastern pop music in general. Now they’re set to release the next chapter – entitled Bonito Recycling – which finds a handful of like-minded producers (from PC Music’s Kane West and Danny L Harle to LA’s Spazzkid) remixing tracks from the mixtape.

You can hear Danny L Harle’s mix in full below, and he does a bang up job, adding a pounding, neon-blasted glow to the sparse original.


01 Sick Beat (Danny L Harle Remix)
02 My Party (bo en Remix)
03 I’d Rather Sleep (et aliae Remix)
04 Cat Vs. Dog (Kane West Remix)
05 Pocket Crocodile (Toby Gale Pixel Pounce Remix)
06 Small Town (Spazzkid Remix)

Bonito Recycling is out Sept 29 via Double Denim.

Hideout Where Youve Been (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 17, 2014 9:49am | StereoGum

When Cory Stier and Gabriel Rodriguez aren’t playing drums and guitar for Cults on tour, they’re recording together at in New York and San Diego under the name Hideout. The duo’s gleaming metropolitan rock ’n’ roll is of a piece with the likes Delta Spirit, Local Natives, and Peter Bjorn And John, framing classic sounds in state-of-the-art sonics. “Where You’ve Been,” an early preview from Hideout’s upcoming album Rookie, is a lively dose of harmonious windswept pop-rock. Hear it below.

Sep 17, 2014 9:46am | Fact Magazine

Legendary noisemakers Godflesh return this year with their first album since 2001, A World Lit Only By Fire.

Crawling jackhammer noise in a similar vein to classic Godflesh albums like Streetcleaner, long-term fans of the group will find a lot to love about the record. Ahead of the album’s release on October 7, we’re premiering ‘Imperator’ below.

For more Godflesh on FACT, check out band leader Justin Broadrick’s contribution to the FACT mix series.

Perfume Genius – Too Bright
Sep 17, 2014 9:45am | CMJ

At the start of Perfume Genius’ third full-length album, Mike Hadreas sings in a thin, but unbreakable voice: “I can see for miles/the same old line/no thanks, I decline.” It’s an immensely personal moment, like the listener has been dropped, uninvited, into someone else’s most intimate thoughts. And because this is just the start of Too Bright, there’s nothing else to hold onto—the walls are smooth, the room is empty, and there’s no one in it except you and Hadreas. The discomfort here is difficult, but captivating. You’ll be timidly looking for a quiet way out while simultaneously straining to hear more.

Although the themes in Too Bright are big—isolation, queerness, youth, acceptance—its moments are small—brief glimpses into one person’s life. Queen, with lines like “No family is safe when I sashay,” is both a tongue-in-cheek mockery of anti-gay hand-wringing and a microscopic view into Hadreas’ own insecurities as a gay man. My Body is a shivering, hopelessly dark song, with guttural guitar shrieks and Hadreas pushing his vocals to a gruff baritone for lines like “I wear my body like a rotted peach/You can have it if you can handle the stink.” In I’m A Mother, Hadreas sing-whispers like his jaw has been wired shut; it’s almost painful to listen to. But the hurt is so palpable&mdas...

Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite goes on campaign trail for Scottish 'Yes' vote

Self Defense Family Been Passed On (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 17, 2014 9:38am | StereoGum

Post-hardcore outfit Self Defense Family have always been an amorphous group, centered around frontman Patrick Kindlon. They’ve also been particularly prolific this year, releasing one and album and three separate EPs, all of which traverse through different sounds with ease. For their latest release, they’ve teamed up with frequent collaborator Caroline Corrigan for a new EP, Duets, that sees Kindlon taking on more of a supporting role than ever before. Corrigan’s airy vocals on “Been Passed On” provide a welcome contrast to Kindlon’s gruff delivery. Duets is the softest collection of songs the group has put out yet, filtering all of their intense energy into smoldering love songs. Listen below.


Wild Beasts announce special edition release of 'Present Tense' with Foals remix listen

New version of latest album will come accompanied with bonus disc of remixes

Report: Beyoncé and Jay Z at work on collaborative album
Sep 17, 2014 9:34am | Cosequence Of Sound

Logic would dictate that if Beyoncé and Jay Z were going to collaborate on an album together, they would have done it prior to embarking on a stadium tour. But I guess that’s why they are global pop icons and I’m just a guy eating a bowl of pre-packaged fruit from my local Jewel Osco.

According to radio DJ Skee — who has worked with everyone from Snoop Dogg to Clipse to Chris Cornell over the years — Bey and Jay are currently in the studio working on their first full-length collaborative record. Skee’s cites multiple sources for his report, but doesn’t provide any further details.

Aside from the aforementioned tour, Beyoncé and Jay Z have teamed up for a number of songs over the course of their decade long relationship, including “Drunk in Love”, “Crazy in Love”, and “03 Bonnie & Clyde”.

Below, listen to Skee deliver the news on his radio program.

Björk amends Declare Independence for Scotland
Sep 17, 2014 9:31am | Fact Magazine

Icelandic pop savant Björk has weighed into the debate over Scotland’s impending referendum.

The vote is set to take place tomorrow, and will decided whether Scotland will continue to be a part of the United Kingdom or whether it will break away into its own separate country. In honor of this chance, Björk made a brief Facebook post amending the words to her 2008 cut ‘Declare Independence’ to support the popular Scottish “yes” vote – which would see the country secede from the Union.

The chant of “raise your flag/declare independence!” was originally made in support of Greenland and the Faroe islands, and has been applied to several causes since, courting controversy in Shanghai, for example, where Björk used the song as a declaration of support for Tibet. [via The Guardian]

Take a look at the fresh lyrics here, and then listen to the original below.

Wild Beasts Palace (Foals Remix)
Sep 17, 2014 9:29am | StereoGum

British art-poppers Wild Beasts are into remixes. They dropped their Present Tense LP earlier this year, and since then, they’ve recruited people like Factory Floor, the Field, Lone, and SOHN to rework its tracks. And on a forthcoming Present Tense special edition, they’ll include a full bonus disc of nothing but remixes. One of those comes from Foals, the band’s peers in critically-acclaimed and ambitiously tricky Brit-rock. Foals have turned the album track “Palace” into a swirling thump; check it out below.


Watch Hudson Mohawke bring out Busta Rhymes, Flying Lotus, Kabuki dancers and more at Boiler Room
Sep 17, 2014 9:28am | Fact Magazine

HudMo celebrates Chimes in LA.

You’ve probably already seen the much-discussed SOPHIE and QT performances, and now Boiler Room has unleashed the main attraction: Hudson Mohawke’s 70-minute set.

It features an Eric Wareheim introduction, special guest Busta Rhymes, Flying Lotus (as Captain Murphy), Kabuki-inspired displays choreographed by Kaz Matamura and monsters designed by Trish Hunter (best known for her work on Bjorks ‘Wunderlust’ video).

Zookeeper (Chris of Mineral) streaming "Conclusions" from new LP, 'Pink Chalk' (listen)
Sep 17, 2014 9:23am | Brooklyn Vegan

Chris w/ Mineral in Austin in August (more by Tim Griffin)

Though veteran emo band Mineral are in the midst of their first tour in 17 years playing the old favorites, singer Chris Simpson is also busy with new material with his Zookeeper project, whose new album Pink Chalk comes out October 14 via Count Your Lucky Stars (pre-order). You've already heard the title track and now we've got the premiere of another, "Conclusions." Like we said about the last single, the emo stylings of Mineral won't be found here. Instead, "Conclusions" would sooner fit alongside the indie folk of the the early-mid 2000s. It's mostly Chris and his acoustic guitar, but with gorgeous string arrangements playing behind him. It's good stuff, and you can check it out below.

If you haven't yet, you can also read our interview with Chris.

And in sadder news, Mineral's van was broken into and all of their belongings were stolen last night.

Beyoncé And Jay Z Are Allegedly Working On An Album Together
Sep 17, 2014 9:15am | StereoGum

Talented, world-conquering musical spouses Beyoncé and Jay Z have been on tour together for months, and they’ve made it a point to counter divorce rumors on stage and in the studio. Well, here’s one way to demonstrate your oneness: According to DJ Skee, multiple unnamed sources have confirmed that the couple are working on an album together. Vulture speculates that Jay and Bey’s very own matrimonial Watch The Throne could be out as soon as late 2014 or early 2015, though Skee’s report doesn’t hint at a timeline for the release. Hip-hop stars do a lot of recording on the road these days, so the Carter family would certainly have the opportunity to hit the studio while On The Run. Let’s just hope Jay brings his A-game so we don’t end up with a whole album of “Your breasteses are my breakfast.” In the meantime, the duo’s On The Run tour special airs 9/20 on HBO.
