In a recent piece for the BBC, Emma Jones questioned the exportability of Scandinavian comedies.
Similar to those '92 feels The Game and Princess Nokia been poppin' this 2016, Dim Wit vibes along the same wavelength, maybe just on another station. Maybe this is a little more white-peep angst, but it works, no? Well, their new single,...Show More Summary
C’mon, we all know no-wave is a dead scene, right? The clubs have been condemned, the saxophone reeds have long gone dry, and the drugs just aren’t as good anymore, man. Is there nothing left? If an amplifier fries and there’s no one...Show More Summary
Exit Sense's artistic practice extends across several mediums. His website, exitsense.net, contains a number of pieces, moods and zones, encompassing the angelic/demonic, the erotic and the digital. His music is similarly wide-rangi...
Music is time machine, easily accessible, and here we are in the phone booth, free again. Factory's "Time Machine" begins with a quick feel of dim theater-ready texture before swelling up and making room for a beloved rock fix and riff, the base for crude and fantastic travel. Show More Summary
Each new track that 4AD Records expatriate SpaceGhostPurrp uploads to (and often eventually deletes from) one of his many Soundcloud channels is a figment of an unending nightmare, the missing corner piece to a hexed jigsaw puzzle found slumbering among sofa lint and lost coins.
Let's be real here: Tokyo-based acid-/psych-rock mastermind Masaki Batoh has been so damn prolific at this whole "music thing" for such a long while now that he must be single-handedly using up like 66% of Drag City's vinyl budget. This dude knows how to put out records.
The Flaming Lips are back with a new album, OCZY MLODY, and they've got the press release lead single to prove it! After offering a preview of the track yesterday, "The Castle" has now been released in full. What an incredible rollo...
This afternoon, I was on a field trip to a college uptown with about 30 younger students, and the tour guides took us to their auditorium hall. During the tour, the kids are doing normative hands gestures used in their daily classroom...Show More Summary

European Deerhoof fans face a most difficult dilemma this fall: if they want to see the band live, it’s going to be expensive. Worse, most of that money will be headed to the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ retirement fund, which I imagine is already doing just fine. Show More Summary
The floor is melting and that push-pop isn’t going to dethrone the crown without some guidance. Happily married spoons laughing without moving their mouths. A candelabra winking with knife patio furniture roving cloven overhead. All that bread and no cake. A snot pool of image and sound. Show More Summary
Koreatown Oddity raps wearing a Wolfman mask, and his (amazing) Ras G-produced EP from earlier this year is basically about smoking so much weed the city melts. In other words, if you can out-weird this man on a track, it says something about you. Show More Summary
"I'm thinking about you. What else can I say?" Not my words. An Atwood, her razor reversal of pronouns in time, the ripping and rippling of people remembering. Memory is time travel, a brain's attempt to cocktail thoughts into the conjured...Show More Summary
Barry Jenkins's Moonlight is a masterpiece. I don't know that I've ever felt confident or un-ironically self-aware enough before to write this. Ordinarily, the contrarian inside me would be alienated by the fact that Moonlight has absurdly...Show More Summary

Album releases are generally a pretty serious undertaking, but I imagine the process is remarkably less stressful if the artist doing the releasing is constantly creating out of sheer impulse or enjoyment. It's a lot easier to honor a request for a rainbow painting if all you do during your downtime is paint rainbows. Show More Summary
Detroit-based, rainforest-grown label Closer to the Equator. Written specifically for the performance at the Latvian National Opera in Riga, Latvia, the 22-minute soundtrack now exists alone, outside predestined, physical movements. The sounds are liquid and alive and move with a grace too pure to rematerialize.
