Brian Miller (Foot Village) and Sam Angiulo (Lana Del Rabies) release debut as America Fuck, the ultimate political facepalm

Foot Village has been one of TMT’s favorites for a good long while now — going back at least to the 2008 interview that we did with the entire band — which means that we’re super excited (and not obligated or anything) to cover everything...Show More Summary

To Live and Shave in L.A.’s Tom Smith organizes 69-track compilation Approach to Fear: Regeneration, feat. Wolf Eyes, Aaron Dilloway, Andy Ortmann, many more

Halloween is almost here, and this year, we all have something truly spooky to be afraid of. I’m of course talking about the proverbial FOMO, because this year’s All Hollows’ Evening brings with it a massive, super-limited new compilation...Show More Summary

Interview: Cherry Glazerr

A lthough they’ve carved out a unique niche for themselves in the indie community and further solidified their singular take on riff-driven rock music with 2017’s Apocalipstick, Cherry Glazerr aren’t a group to rest on their laurels....Show More Summary

Right as we approach the spooky-scariest of times — Hallow’s Eve, when lost souls wander o’er the land unmoored — our fiendish friends at Daptone Records are getting into the spook of things by teaming up with their most frightening house band. That of course would be Queens County’s own The Frightnrs. Show More Summary

? Listen: P A T H S ?? - ???? ??????

On ???? ??????, sweat caresses the eyes. A slow moaning horn seeps past the leaves with unease, and the rest unfolds like an orchid through a kaleidoscope. Modulation of time and tone. Split lips. Muddled confusion turning to mild elation, minus any real dramatic swing. Show More Summary

? Listen: Laura Cannell - “Persuasion”

An instrument speaks - unified and in many voices. HUNTER HUNTRESS HAWKER, fourth solo release from Laura Cannell, was done live, in single takes, in a crumbling church on the Suffolk Coast. As you might imagine, resonating in such a setting, Cannell’s violin carries forward a reverent charge, an ancient echo from the ruin-stone. Show More Summary

? Listen: Taylor Swift - “Gorgeous”

A baby utters the word “gorgeous,” a wave of existential dread and regret washes over the listener, and the primary motif for Taylor Swift’s new single “Gorgeous” is revealed. A predictable venture into saccharine, expertly (read: scientifically)...Show More Summary

Young Thug and Future drop surprise mixtape Super Slimey, ACCORDING TO THE PRESS RELEASE

“There were no rumblings, internet chatter, or hype. They don’t need it. Instead, two of Atlanta’s most influential and prolific titans holed up in the studio for a handful of days and turned up with the 13 tracks comprising SUPER SLIMEY.” –...Show More Summary

Music Review: Destroyer - ken

Destroyer ken [Merge; 2017] Rating: 2.5/5 W hen you listen to ken, you’ll think of “the 80s.” While it’s easy to evoke that period with instrumentation, it’s more difficult to do so with what you might call “a sensibility.” Sure, ken has a lot of synths, but so did Your Blues. Show More Summary

Music Review: Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile - Lotta Sea Lice

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile Lotta Sea Lice [Matador; 2017] Rating: 4/5 C ollaboration is a vital element of rap music. Whether to further affirm the friendship between a pair of MCs or to simply reap the benefits of two lucrative rappers’ combined star power, hip-hop frequently revels in the camaraderie of a shared bill.

? Listen: Endolphins - Large, Complex Machines Which Perform Narrow, Specific Functions

Endolphin call it “a musical Rube Goldberg machine.” I call it Vorticist. In the end, we’re both right. I think. The heap of musical phrases that pile onto Large, Complex Machines Which Perform Narrow, Specific Functions ’ centrifugal groove are typographical in nature. Show More Summary

? Listen: In Gowan Ring - B’ee’s Pent Pouch

As an American, I’m conditioned by the military industrial complex (Eisenhower warned us and we didn’t listen) to see the shape of the pentagon as a forceful, determined shape. It represents aggression and best interests. So excuse if...Show More Summary

Italian club/music concrete artist Silvia Kastel shines a little white light on the Blackest Ever Black label with debut solo album

I’m not sure what “religion” she is (or isn’t); but, as far as Italian electronic artist Silvia Kastel is concerned, heaven must be nothing less than a pristine, ethereal, infinitely-spacious…dance club. And now, having long been a respected-but-somewhat-shadowed facilitator/collaborator in her chosen underground scene (e.g. Show More Summary

? Listen: BAKGROUND - saved data

The rave’s behind you, distant & on other streets, while you are inside with me, safe. A glass of water, the light of the Playstation 2, & the air out there moist; I can tell just looking at it—just looking at you. I turn off the lights and hear only the darkness, raw and fuzzy. Show More Summary

? Listen: Vaperror - “Illumina”

Occupying the space between cloud nine and your favorite PlayStation 1 demo disc, you could be forgiven overlooking “Illumina.” A two-minute cerulean jam, it navigates the ether of acid house and vaporwave, worlds increasingly blurred in Vaperror’s work. Show More Summary

Screaming Females announce new album All at Once on Don Giovanni Records, share new video, continue to make Kathleen Hanna very proud

If you’re a musician, the rogue capabilities of “influence” are something to always keep a watchful eye on. The trick is to wear your inspirations’ affectations well, without letting those swindling, backstabbing little rascals hijack your artistic relevance. Show More Summary

SOPHIE reveals herself in the video for new song “It’s Okay to Cry,” to debut new live show next week

In an interview with Billboard many memes ago, SOPHIE said, “The music is not about where someone grew up or what they look like against a wall therefore you should try to use every opportunity available to say what you’re trying to say instead of saying here’s my music and this is what I look like.

? Listen: Laman Equine - “LE#03”

Overwhelming! Not sure if I should dance to, or run from, the techno-industrial complex bumping from Laman Equine’s self-titled debut, so I’ll split the difference an a paroxysm of combined flail. A side project from Andrea GowasabiShow More Summary
