'Behind The Camera' (UK Release: 28 July '14) // Words: Maxamillian John

E J-yong’s fictional documentary 'Behind The Camera' is the postmodernist film I’ve been waiting for all my life. It deals with a particular concern of postmodernism that can’t be tackled through isolated academia alone: the interaction between fiction, reality, and the viewer. Subjects like intertextuality and archive fever are all possible topics for study without the presence of any art, but how can you talk about fiction without some example of fiction?

Fresh off announcing a new London tour date, as well as a run of co-headline US dates with Sir Sly, London quartet Wolf Gang have unveiled a rather excellent new track - 'Ghost In My Life'. The brass-infused offering gives us a hint of forthcoming new album, 'Alveron', and follows impressive recent EP, 'Black River'.

The very last song I caught at this year's Glastonbury Festival was 'I Wanna Get Better' by Bleachers. It's probably my favourite song of 2014. And it's an anthem that I've particularly come back to quite a lot in the last few days, after I was run over on the way home. (I'm okay, relatively speaking.) With his usual aplomb, RAC has put together an ace remix of the track. Listen to both versions below.

'Begin Again' (UK Release: 11 July '14) // Words: Alexia Belisle

Music – in all its different amalgamations of sound and silence – has the ability to transport and move us to new and previously undiscovered places. Turn on 'Live Or Let Die' by Paul McCartney to feel as invincible and classy as Roger Moore with a bourbon in hand, or shake it up with ''Come On Eileen' by Dexy’s Midnight Runners for a night of ill-footed Baby Houseman moves that will get you out of the corner. John Carney explores this notion in 'Begin Again', by asking viewers: can a song save your life?

We're pretty well aware that we play a fairly insignificant role in the grand scheme of things here at FADED GLAMOUR. But it was rather nice to hear that we helped introduce Brooklyn's Janna Pelle to Mancunian experimentalists boxboxbox - subsequently combining to create a remix of Pelle's 'Living A Lie'. Listen to the original and the new version below.
