? Listen: Jacob Sunderlin - Hymnal

I’m not assuming you’ve ever been to an evangelical church, but IF YOU HAVE, you know what I’m talking about. Worship music is a festering masturbatorial wheeze in execution. It’s the act of getting your spiritual rocks off, a forced sonic circle jerk that a roomful of people are only too eager to participate in. Show More Summary

Free musicians Akira Sakata, Masahiko Satoh, and Chikamorachi get even freer on new collaborative album, stop shy of forming a nudist colony (for now)

You think it’s liberating to let your body hair grow until it reaches the terminal length determined by your genetics? Well, the Family Vineyard label kindly requests that you try Proton Pump on for size — because, in addition to being...Show More Summary

? Listen: Ron$oCold - “designer shit” (Prod. Pierre Bourne)

Say it with me now: “Yo… Pierre…. You wanna…..” You know the rest. It’s an odd era for hip-hop. With some hyperbole, it can be said that today’s hip-hop producers, more than ever, can (and often do) outshine the emcees rapping over their beats. Show More Summary

C. Spencer Yeh The RCA Mark II [Primary Information; 2017] Rating: 4/5 I n 1959, a two-ton mass of circuit boards, cabinets, wires, dials, and knobs was trucked from RCA Laboratories in Princeton, NJ to a building owned by Columbia University at 632 West 125th St. Show More Summary

? Listen: Hermóðr - Midnight Eclipse

On the night of the full wolf moon, January 1st, Hermóðr released his latest effort Midnight Eclipse. The title track establishes its allure through the ominous and the grim. A xylophone and eerie synth strings set you at unease, turning the dial to creepy from the outset. Show More Summary

“Woo woo (woa woa) woo woo woo woo Bakada baa baa baka doo kaa Bakada baa ba waa daa taa” - “Pinwheel Herman,” Niun Niggung (2000) “Ooooooo-pd (doo chh, doo chh, doo chh ch ch) ooooo gsh gsh gsh dgdgdgdggdggg” - “Chartnok,” VarcharzShow More Summary

? Listen: Skeleton Harbor - Maiden Voyage

Andreas Brandal and Rambutan crafted Maiden Voyage across an ocean spanning the distance between Albany, New York (landlocked, I know), and Bergen, Norway (much less landlocked—meaning not landlocked at all). There are details. MostShow More Summary

Amen Dunes discovers that Freedom doesn’t come free, announces new album (which costs money)

Since obviously no one else is really picking up the ball and running with this whole “music thing” so far in 2018, New Yorkian singer-songwriter Damon McMahon has decided to strike out as Amen Dunes once again with the release of his fifth LP, Freedom, out March 30 on Sacred Bones.

Scott Walker tells Genius to shove it, releases book of selected song lyrics

Ever find yourself listening to Scott Walker — the ever-evolving singer-songwriter, not that other one — and think, “Okay, yes, this is great, but what is he actually saying???” It’s fine, let it out — we’ve all been there. Just know...Show More Summary

My Bloody Valentine announce first live gig since 2013, might wanna change the oil in their tour van

Dear Joe Davenport: Just wanted to let you know that, according to a very trust-able voice in music, Kevin Shields and whoever else is in m b v have just announced that they’ll be making their first live appearance since late 2013! (Well, either that, or they announced it four years ago and set a REALLY REALLY LONG DELAY on it.) Yup, for real. Show More Summary

? Listen: Sad Statue Wavves - Sad Statue

Sometimes to waste time I’ll sit somewhere and observe people to be with people. Not that these people — like a dream — can actually talk to me in a way we’d understand. But then the man in the window looking at a glove some lady dropped...Show More Summary

Mount Eerie announces new album Now Only, shares 11-minute song “Distortion”

“But that dead body next to me spoke clear and metaphor-free.” – Phil Elverum Almost exactly one year since the announcement of A Crow Looked At Me (which, by the way, ended up topping our 2017 year-end list), Phil Elverum has re-emerged with the unveiling of another new Mount Eerie album, Now Only.

? Listen: S / H / O / T / M / A / N - ”/ h i m s e l f / c a r r y i n g / a / h e l p l e s s / t h i n g /”

The place: a crowded agora; a pastiche of ancient civilizations. S / H / O / T / M / A / N’s MIDI-classical ethos is a more sincere, spartan take on James Ferraro’s Wyndham Hill-inspired arrangements, eschewing massive digital orchestration for a single flute and what might either be a guitar or a harpsichord. Show More Summary

David Byrne adds a thousand more tour dates to American Utopia tour…and a few of them are even IN America! :-o

Sheesh, this David Byrne character sure knows how to stay in the news. It was barely more than a week ago that we were falling all over ourselves trying to tell you about the man’s forthcoming album American Utopia (yeah, yeah; still...Show More Summary

Listen: datafruits - datafruits 2017

Look, here's the thing. We all take our pants off one leg at a time. Thing is, you need to rip those fuckers clean off with a measurement of manic glee and reckless abandon this time around. Whip those tired trousers around your head once they're off your very dangerous, passionate torso, too. Show More Summary

Music Review: t e l e p a t h & Agia - The Light Of Our Love

O ut of the red mist of desire, out of the blue-grey of breathlessness, out of the sea-green of the ocean's soul. Heavy with the sweetness of secrecy, The Light Of Our Love conveys the frantic presence of something trapped that should...Show More Summary

Listen: 99jakes - “sleep angel”

Go to bed. Put your phone on night mode. Better yet, put it under your bed so when you're tempted to reach for it in the middle of the night you'll be too scared to meet the monster under there. Sleep stops you picking at your fingernails. Show More Summary

Migos to reinvent culture AGAIN on new album “Culture II”

Huerco S. starts new label, to release new double album as Pendant THIS FRIDAY

As the old fable goes: if you give an electronic musician a hugely successful album, they might just launch their own record label. If they do, they’ll probably start making music under a new moniker. When they start doing that, they’re going to need to create albums that just won’t fit on a single LP.

Listen: Frank Hurricane and Michael Potter - Cigarette Museum [split cassette]

T he night was evil and fucked up. I sat alone in my study in front of a stack of papers piled atop my antique desk, tape recorder queued, ready to unravel the mystery of the Cigarette Museum. 1 Lightning crashed outside of the window,...Show More Summary
