About The Band
Marionette ID, from Hungary (Budapest/Tatabánya), plays an interesting blend of modern rock styles. (Though they despise any kind of categorization.) Their heavy and emotionally deep music looks to set trends rather than to follow any. Although they lack the experimentalism that might make their music inaccessible, and instead have quite a minimalist attitude, they still flirt with progressive structures, strange noisy patterns and unconventional rhythms. This makes their music stand out from contemporary indie/alternative stuff.
About The Album:
Emptiness Will Change Your Mind is Marionette ID’s debut which was released by the band in 2008. The band joined Fluttery Records in 2010 just before their European Tour and the label decided to bring it to a wider audience.

REVIEWS :
marionette ID are practicing a precision few bands dare to. If you are willing to give Emptiness Will Change Your Mind some time to grow, you will be richly rewarded.”
(soundaslanguage)

marionette ID from Budapest are creating an exceptionally mix between PostRock and IndieRock. In nearly 50 minutes on ‘Emptiness Will Change Your Mind’ they’ve wrapped up 8 really good songs which incite one to sing along.”
(postrockcommunity)

Excellent cross between Alternative and Progressive with a tip bit of post-rock influence. Turns out VERY GOOD. Give it a go. I did and I dig. Its musics like this that makes posting and writing entries fun. Solid 4 to 4.5 with GOOD vocals. Definitely look forward for more of their sound

FACT mix 85: Andrew Weatherall

Posted in Eclectic, Electronic, Experimental, Podcast, Progressive Rock on September 21, 2009 by E.N.


This Monday’s FACT mix comes from Andrew Weatherall, a British DJ and producer who should require no introduction.
A vital part of UK music in the late ’80s and early ’90s, Weatherall was the wry wit and leading DJ behind seminal acid house crew Boys Own whose early remixes and productions for the likes of Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine and Saint Etienne led the way in blending dance and rock music into blissed-out loose-limbed union, writ largest on the ‘Scream’s still peerless debut album Screamdelica (which Weatherall produced).
A mid-’90s stint as part of The Sabres of Paradise followed (check their stunning Haunted Dancehall album for Warp) whilst Weatherall’s DJ sets reached legendary proportions – at this point he was one of the UK’s most in-demand remixers, and now boasts a back catalogue of edits that includes Bjork, Manic Street Preachers, Mogwai and more. In 1996, he formed Two Lone Swordsemen with Keith ‘Radioactive Man’ Tenniswood, setting up the Rotters Golf Club label and releasing several full-lengths, including the particularly acclaimed Tiny Reminders, also on Warp.

Never one to be shackled to a particular groove or sub-genre, Weatherall’s contributed a wonderful micro-house mix for Force Tracks, a forward-thinking dancefloor-leaning mix for Fabric (that introduced many to the likes of Villalobos, The Emperor Machine and more), the ground-breaking ’9′O Clock Drop’ comp of post punk classics (before the world and his wife discovered them) and an excellent comp of his much-loved rockabilly to Soma’s Sci-Fi-Lo-Fi series. And if that wasn’t enough, this month he releases his first solo album, a collection of slow-burning punk-funk titled A Pox on the Pioneers, that merges Weatherall’s longstanding interested in rock ‘n’ roll and “modernist electronics”.

While we’re at it, he’s produced the new Fuck Buttons album, has a regular slot on BBC 6Music, and remains one of the world’s best DJs, as comfortable spinning nosebleed techno at German superclubs as he is digging through the crates for his more eccentric rock sets. He’s a bit of a national treasure really.

His FACT mix is subtitled ‘A Pox on the Influences’, and features Circlesquare, Dennis Wilson, The Monks, The Durutti Column, White Williams and more. We’re fucking proud to be hosting it.
