Premiere: Hayden Pedigo - “Stray” feat. Danny Paul Grody

The latest LP from Seattle’s killer Debacle Records comes courtesy of Amarillo, TX guitarist Hayden Pedigo. Five Steps veers between two sides of Pedigo’s musical spectrum: crisp, beautiful acoustic numbers that build upon his low-key debut album, and tripped out, blasted experimentation on the other (the side-long “Dream Theory Parts One-Four”).

Watch: Ahnnu - “goooochi st00pid”

How relevant is a two year old remix of a five year old song? Considering the circumstances, pretty relevant. GodsConnect knows what’s up. Timing is everything, or some other cliche about time. And even if the video/track wasn’t presently pertinent, at least Ahnnu tore that loop a new one. Show More Summary

? Listen: Oren Ambarchi & Eli Keszler - “ALPS I” [extract]

Ominous. A sign of things ahead. A preparation, as it were, of something disturbing. Always pushing ahead with the main act, always trying to go forward where going forward seems impossible. There’s a darkness ahead, isn’t there? But...Show More Summary

? Listen: Katrina Stonehart - “A2”

Like softly running a branch along a chain link fence while staring through its diamonds to see the perfectly sectioned off images comprising a quiet pond on the other side, Drew Gibson’s Katrina Stonehart project has always had a wandering curiosity about it. Show More Summary

Unsound Poland announces fourth batch of performers: Nurse with Wound, Lee Gamble, SOPHIE, Evian Christ, and more

When does a dream become a nightmare? When does it become another dream within that first dream like some sorta dream-like cake product with a tasty nighttime filling? When does it become a dream-themed festival in Krakow, Poland? I only know the answer to that last one: October 12 through October 19, and they’re calling it the Unsound Festival. Show More Summary

Film Review: Down River (Dir. Benjamin Ratner)

Down River Dir. Benjamin Ratner [Gossamer Creative, Haven Films; 2014] by K.M. McFarland Rating: Late in the game in Down River — around the time that all the plot complication cards have been played and all seems lost and happinessShow More Summary

Premiere: Future Ape Tapes - “Man With The Eagle Eye”

Blockbuster Games, in affiliation with Blockbuster Records, has popped off a tease of their newest game DEEJAY TYCOON with a FREE LOOP PACK !?!?!. At MOST, a loop is like eight seconds long. But digital-music conglomorate Chaz Allen passed this along my way, and I felt like popping it up for all you gamers and beat makers. Show More Summary

Watch: Legendary Hearts - “Distance & Desire”

On their latest release, Melbourne duo Legendary Hearts craft spacey, ambient muzak that sounds like demented background music for when you’re stuck in a waiting room reminiscent of that one scene in Beetlejuice. “Distance & Desire,”...Show More Summary

Ty Dolla $ign announces In Too Deep tour, in which he will make buckets and buckets of $$$$$$$$$

Here at Tiny Mix Tapes, we love two things: Oneohtrix Point Never and fat, fat, fat stacks of cash. Your average Tiny Mix Tapes writer makes a seven-figure yearly salary, all from writing news bits about how drone bands are going on tour and editorials about how Scott Walker albums relate to gender issues.

Sorrow comes out at night – the bad thoughts that would otherwise be diverted or distracted during the day by simply doing something linger and intensify in the long, dark hours of the night. Sometimes they can cause insomnia. The music...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Gut Nose - Vicetopia

By Grant 'Gumshoe' Purdum on Aug 29 2014 I love the way “Difficult to Escape,” from Gut Nose’s Vicetopia 12-inch, kicks off. It’s almost like a how-to for aspiring electronic producers: Start with a little hi-hizzie and an ominous bass...Show More Summary

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy announces new album Singer’s Grave a Sea of Tongues via “most awkward radio innerview ever!?!”

I suppose when you’re a musician with an oeuvre as deep and as storied as Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s, you can afford to take a hilariously nonsensical approach to promoting your album releases. I’m trying within my brain not to let theShow More Summary
