? Listen: I am just a Pupil - CRYSTAL PAIN

Stranded on an island without a raft, I am just a Pupil messaged out CRYSTAL PAIN in a Fiji bottle that eventually landed on Illuminated Paths’ coastline. After setting and forgetting the damp USB in some dry rice, the contents were extracted, then dubbed to tape to be distributed out into the world. Show More Summary

Welcome to your last chance: Daniel Johnston announces final tour with support from Jeff Tweedy, Built to Spill, and more

Hi, how are you? Actually, wait. Before you answer that, I’ve got some bittersweet news to tell you that’ll probably tug your mood in all kinds of disparate directions: Austin DIY legend Daniel Johnston has just announced what’s being...Show More Summary

Watch: The Chainsmokers & Coldplay - “Something Just Like This (Live at the BRITs)”

If you’re expecting a harsh Coldplay smackdown, this is the wrong place. My TMT colleague S. David dropped some wisdom with a recent review/takedown of Chris Martin & co.’s recent EP. No doubt Coldplay is a laughably stupid band, and it’s hard to fathom their ability to stay on the charts for twenty years (!) of blandness. Show More Summary

? Listen: Nate Scheible - Fairfax

Shit, I keep having good weekends with my wife. There’s plenty of friends we’ve situated around New York. And I’ve always had pals growing up that I latched onto: Rob, Stephani, Brandon, Laura, Jeriah, Jackie, and the vastness of that in-between. Show More Summary

Apple quietly discontinues iPods Nano and Shuffle

As reported by MacRumors, Apple seems to have discontinued its iPods Nano and Shuffle; their pages now redirect simply to Apple Music. Along with the discontinuation of the iPod Classic in 2014, this strips the iPod line to only theShow More Summary

Ben Frost and Steve Albini use torn speakers and razorblades on surprise EP Threshold of Faith

Ben Frost’s music has always sounded like the soundtrack to a global machine-takeover (hence, the aptness of the title to Frost’s 2016 release on Bedroom Community), so it’s no surprise that the Aussie expat recently inhabited a Chicago studio and seemingly attempted to establish AI through punishment and sheer force of will.

? Listen: Tomoki Tamura - “DSC House”

“DSC House” nails everything I expect from a proper B-side. It jams just as hard as the tunes on the flip, sneaks some perplexing sounds into its groove, and does so without wasting much time. Here. Berlin-based house producer Tomoki...Show More Summary

Benedek invites us to take a magical trip to Bene’s World on new album for Leaving Records

You walk up to the massive marquee: BENE’S WORLD. Everything glistens, is maximally refreshing, feels endlessly replenishing. Infinite. Watch the word stretch out into a formless nothing. Dance floor boulevards and G-Funk memories. We are the vapor we exhale from our E-cigarettes. Show More Summary

? Listen: Emily Berregaard - “Solis Lae (Lack remix)”

For his new label, enmossed, Philip Maier, aka Lack, gathers the laurels and brooms, powders and forks, feathers and cushions, junipers and liverworts that float down and around from Emily Berregaard’s Hallowed LP, dries them, amalgamates...Show More Summary

Music Review: DJ Escrow - Universal Soulja Vol.1

DJ Escrow Universal Soulja Vol.1 [Self-Released; 2017] Rating: 4/5 S cratching at your face, yah. Just scratches, tho. Kill people moving up. Outside > SHOOOOOFFFFFFF: CVS, Rite Aid, or Duane Reade is your pharmacy. This is where you pick up the physical of DJ Escrow’s Universal Soulja Vol.1. Show More Summary

? Listen: M4 - ???? ?? ??

Keeping myself out of the vaporwave flourishings on social media is a priority. First off: I’ve never given a shit so much to ignore why and what and how I enjoy music. Secondly: Music past and present is glorious and I would never ravel enough to ruffle the negative of its existence. Show More Summary

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead announce 2xLP reissue of… yeah, that album (Source Tags & Codes)

Suspicion was probably roused subsequent to reading one of the longest band names ever, but for those who didn’t jump on the bandwagon early by picking up their first two indie endeavors, I’d guess that their ultimate realization ofShow More Summary

Cerberus: Dauðyflin - Ofbeldi

I was just demonstrating, for my rapt daughters, the old “UN… EWWW… EEEEE… AWWWW” way of counting off the beginning of a song, and I think that if any band deserves such a count-off before every song, it’s Dauðyflin. These three-gals-and-0ne-guy AREN’T MESSING AROUND. Show More Summary

? Listen: Klaus - TNM004

Content saturated we are to the point that “information overload” seems laughably quaint, an artist going fully not prolific becomes a welcome counterbalance. True for London producer Klaus, who, following a 2011 debut EP on R&S, established...Show More Summary

? Listen: Le Makeup - “Sketch for Wheat Road”

All awash in the warmth of Le Makeup. Towards the sweltering world, Keisuke Iiri strides through golden fields. Winds flatten and swirl the grasses. Sunsets turn the whole sky pink, and scribbles of other pastels mark the horizon. Watercolors...Show More Summary

Benoît Pioulard announces new album Lignin Poise, premieres single “Same Time Next Year”

American ambient/folk/shoegaze master Benoît Pioulard has announced Lignin Poise, a new album that will drop in September on Beacon Sound. Compared to some of his folkier, poppier releases, Lignin Poise is a hazy, slow-motion experience, featuring airy synths and bucolic, hallucinatory vibes. Show More Summary

Katie Von Schleicher talks to Tiny Mix Tapes about Shitty Hits, out THIS FRIDAY on Ba Da Bing

They say you have your whole life to write your first record; it’s the next one that’s troublesome. Regardless of how you define Brooklyn DIY’er Katie Von Schleicher’s solo offerings (albums? mini-albums? petite-albums?), there has been no second album slip. Show More Summary

? Listen: Michel Tenoît - Je m’apelle Michel

Why is TXK starting to look more-and-more like Mortal Kombat menu screens, visually via color schematics? By blood: there was never a French person in the Mortal Kombat game series. But ironically, it was the Dom of fighting games. Forever. Show More Summary

Music Review: Alan Vega - IT

Alan Vega IT [FADER; 2017] Rating: 4.5/5 T he infamous early performances of Suicide are understood to be foundational events that set the bar for shock-punk extremity. As Henry Rollins stated a year ago in the official public announcement...Show More Summary

NYC noise pop artist L’Rain announces self-titled debut album on Astro Nautico

Visibility is an illusion. Certitude is over rated. Who’s ready to open up and accept a little obscurity in their lives? Brooklyn experimental pop auteur Taja Cheek is here to help. The artist and musician has announced her debut full-length album via Astro Nautico. Show More Summary
