Chloé Maratta and Flannery Silva's Odwalla88 project giggles and clangs into ever weirder and whimsier wilds. Cut, draped, knotted, and cinched sounds arrange into strangely textured swaths; around the corner, the long, dirty hem of a skirt disappears, to be followed by a flourish of perfume spritzed through a lighter's flame.

I'd given up on music festivals. I went to Pitchfork Music Festival for six or seven years, I've been to Lollapalooza and Summerfest, to LouFest, and as a grown man, I've more or less felt like I've seen it all.

That's right, TMTeenyboppers, bubblegum pop sensations Serengeti and Sicker Man, who previously teamed up on such feel-good summer anthems as "Accommodating" off their 2013 LP Saal and "Got Dat" off 2011's Shtaad are back with a shiny new set of jingles just in time for the holidays!
We got a homedunker! CINDYS TAPES (who gifted us a guest mix this summer) and ROLAND JONES (the Ukrainain twenty-one-year-old who's SoundCloud stream is pure heat) have teamed together for a brand new cassette, entitled MISTAH ONE EIGHT SEVEN.
Broken records surround each and every lowly music blogger; "Year-End Season" brings all the TMT writer top-## lists in our private forums. It's cool getting feedback from what I may have miss-out on this year, so in light of that, I looked up and listened to John K. Samson's Winter Wheat.
A merican cities have never had walls, only towers — our national narrative far too immature to have witnessed the elitist grandeur of a pre-Ringstrasse Vienna or even the fortifications of medieval Paris. And so the buildings became the walls. Show More Summary

Bristol’s Throwing Snow a.k.a. Ross Tones works with familiar sounds, but his material can be hard to pin down. “Cosms,” the first track released ahead of his upcoming Embers LP, is characteristic. With overlapping arpeggiating synths...Show More Summary

L ike everything else in 2016, my experience at this year’s AFI Fest was a bit of a bummer. Although not the fault of the fest itself, which was as wonderfully programmed and organized as usual, it just happened to fall during my busiest week of the year, amid escrow hell, packing and moving prep.
