    The Kut – ‘I Want You Maniac’ (Out Now on Criminal Records)

    Listen now! Make your own mind up:
    I Want You Maniac
    If you like it please give it a heart <3

    Produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / Sonic Boom Six / My Vitriol), The Kut -‘I Want You Maniac’ is an upbeat, grunge fused horror-rock track taken from the bands forthcoming EP. As a quick follow up to their ‘Make Up’ EP, it has been good news that the band is back in the studio so soon, especially given what spanned a near 3 year hiatus.

    Front-woman Maha spoke about the single, shortly after the news they’d been confirmed on the Camden Nightmare Festival line up today… “We’ve always wanted to put out a Halloween single, it’s always been our rock Christmas, and I Want You Maniac was the right track for us to celebrate it with... It’s been awesome working with James in the studio again, and the video was a lot of fun to make as well… We envisioned it as a zombie version of pet cemetery, it’s a bit scary”

    Forthcoming Dates
    Fri 31st Oct: Halloween Special, The Lincoln Imp, Scunthorpe
    Sat 1st Nov: Nightmare Festival, (Proud Camden), London
    Mon 10th Nov: The Black Heart, Camden, London

    The Kut: Biography
    Inspired by bands like Deftones, L7, Hole, Incubus, Placebo, Nirvana, Faith No More and others, The Kut are a London basement rock trio formed from the alternative scene. Having been voted into in the winning spots for MTV UK Brand New Unsigned 2014 Poll, the recent ‘Make Up’ EP was produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / My Vitriol / Page & Plant / Def Leppard), featuring 3 brand new tracks plus 2 previous releases ‘DMA’ and ‘Closure’. The latest offering, ‘I Want You Maniac’ ties some of those tracks together, combining elements of horror pop with their grunge rock sound. Recently joined by ex-Riot Squad drummer, Violet, on drums, the band are due to release their new EP in Spring 2015.

    This year the band’s first EP, ‘Make Up’ saw dark and emotive tracks like ‘No Trace’ into the Scuzz Most Wanted Rock Chart, alongside bands like Paramore, Green Day - as well as playlisted on their 'All-Stars of Rock Show'. The single was also supported by Alex Baker on Kerrang! Radio and picked up by BBC Introducing in Lancashire and Oxford. This lead to The Kut being invited in for a BBC Introducing live set, where they performed a 4 song set live from the Blackburn studios. The video was play listed on Putpat TV (Germany, Switzerland, Austria) and featured by Vevo, with a number of USA stations also including the track.

    Most recent single ‘Mario’, was supported by Scuzz TV on their ‘Huge Rock Anthems’ show, as well as Putpat TV and BBC Introducing Lancashire, just ahead of the release. The band’s previous video, ‘Closure’ was playlisted on Sub TV, Tuune and NME TV (Radar), whilst their first ever video ‘DMA’ (aka Doesn’t Matter Anyway) was added to 16 USA cable channels on the Bongo Boy Rock n Roll Show this May. The band has also had a number of tracks playlisted at the major UK clubs including Club NME and Medication. Previous shows include London 2012 Olympics and the Paralympics, and a sold out UK tour. In 2013 the band performed DJ sets for Kerrang! Klub, London and a string of 14 dates on the Club Criminal tour.

    Kerrang! Magazine
    “Despite the loud Courtney love references they’re more than just Hole II. Mario has an Against Me! Strut to the intro, while DMA is a pounding gem”

    Metal Mouth
    “If they can fulfill their early promise, then The Kut could end up being a big name in no time at all.” 8/10

    “Heavy guitar, banging drums, dirty crisp vocals and a whole of attitude… the NMS would like to welcome The Kut to the party … without a shadow of a doubt they’re on the ascendancy! ”

    Hit The Floor Magazine
    “[No Trace] epitomises the girls’ influences from the likes of Nirvana and Incubus, displaying their no messing around approach to modern day grunge and taking us back to the early 90′s, where grunge rock was at it’s best!”

    Bristol Live Magazine
    “If Deftones and Hole had a little baby they’d probably sound like The Kut”

    Tasty Fanzine
    “‘Mario’ has guitar hook similar to Trey Spruance era Faith No More and an awesome ending. ‘Closure’ and ‘DMA’ are equally noteworthy and the whole EP is impressively polished. Bravo The Kut.” 7/10

    SWNK Magazine
    “No Trace, the opening song on The Kut’s Make up EP, has a big chance of being the most played song this summer. Awesome stuff!”

    Alt Dialog
    “It’s almost as if Soundgarden and Hole were put into a blender with The Kut being the result.”

    Ultimate Underground
    “They are equal parts L7 and bands like Placebo. They even show influences of Nirvana without being a retread and falling prey to the familiar.”

    Seba-Rashii Culture
    “When we first heard The Kut, we knew that the London based trio were going to be worth keeping a careful ear on. Our patience has been rewarded with the release of the Make Up E.P!”

    Uproar Webzine
    “Known for their enthusiasm and uncontrollable energy on stage, The Kut have created quite a crazy fan base who as you would expect are ecstatic over the release of their new EP, Make Up.”

    Peek-a-boo Magazine
    “The Kut present a sonic collage that evokes everything that made the 1990’s alternative rock scene such a beautifully broken beast”

    Blast Out Your Stereo
    “Grunge trio, The Kut have released a brand new music video for their song, “Mario,” which is off their upcoming EP, Make Up.. Trust me, you’ll be singing along to this number for a while (if you aren’t already).”

    Mistree Magazine
    “Mario” is 90s alternative rock at it’s very best. It is gritty and heavy, with chugging riffs and thudding percussion.”

    Palace of Rock
    “There are moments when the all female rock band The Kut sounds like Courtney Love´s Hole… But there are also moments when this London trio bring thoughts to a heavier The Bangles like “Mario”, I guess you can call it grunge pop.”

    Backseat Mafia
    “The rock girl trio based in London have not long since visited my hometown’s longest running live music venue The Lincoln Imp. I went to see them live and they rocked the room with their melodic tracks, long metal hair shaking and rock stances.”

  • Как вернуть старый Spotify на Mac [RU]

    10 apr 2014, 06:39 av Tranceroute

    Заинтересовался этим вопросом в связи с крайним кардинальным обновлением интерфейса приложения. На скриншотах и в мобильной версии все выглядело куда лучше. В целом новый интерфейс напомнил мне ненавистную мной ios7 (не обновился до нее ни на одном из гаджетов) - минимум деталей и контраста, максимум минимализма. Круглые "оватарчики" не забыли {здесь должен быть щенячий восторг} ! Как и положено у настоящих демократических разработчиков Спотифай, возможность выбрать тему в настройках отсутствует на настоящий момент.:-/

    Итак как откатиться к любой из представленных ниже по ссылке сборке приложения.

    01 Найдите и загрузите интересующую вас старую версию приложения здесь:;
    02 Монтируйте образ и замените приложение в вашей папке приложений тем, что было загружено;
    03 Теперь убедитесь что Спотифай не обновится автоматически:
    а) Откройте в Finder ~/Library folder - использйте хоткей shift+cmd+g и введите в окне "~/Library" без кавычек и нажмите ввод,
    б) Откройте папку Application Support - Spotify,
    в) Удалите файлы _new.archive и Spotify_new.archive.sig (если они есть),
    г) Теперь откройте текстовый редактор, я скопировал файл с настройками на рабочий стол, открыл дефолтным редактором и удалил содержимое внутри, переименовал (см.следующий шаг), далее переместил их в папку Application Support - Spotify,
    д) Создайте два документа и назовите их "Spotify_new.archive" и "Spotify_new.archive.sig" - без кавычек, такими же именами, как у тех файлов, что вы стёрли в шаге в),
    е) Установите атрибуты созданных файлов. Используйте cmd+i или правый щелчок мыши - установите флажки "защита" и закройте вкладки - на иконках файлов должны появиться изображения замков;
    04 Перезапустите приложение и наслаждайтесь им без авто-обновлений!
