Cerberus: Glass House - Headlands

33 minutes agoMusic / Rock & Pop : Tiny Mix Tapes

By Strauss on Mar 30 2015 I’m sure the name “Glass House” is meant to invoke some notion of “transparency” – see-through drones passing through one another, reflective of a certain light or aura, etc… and yeah, that is for sure the vibe I’m getting all over this Headlands tape. Show More Summary

Premiere: Courtesy - “Nite Nite”

There’s always something slightly off-key with Moon Glyph releases that keep reeling me back into their charm. Beyond the psychedelia there, Courtesy is going for the big-sleep, providing visual and soft sound elements, inviting the tired with “Nite Nite” in a mind expansion project for dreaming.

? Listen: Opaline - Spatial Awareness

In the last two plus years, Opaline has released burner after burner on the likes of Twin Springs Tapes, Constellation Tatsu, Phinery, Habitat Tapes, Rainbow Pyramid, Big Ear Tapes, as well as a few self-released cassettes, all without a hitch in his step. Show More Summary

Leftfield to release Alternative Light Source, their first album in 16 years

Speaking personally, there was a bit of comfort in Paul Daley and Neil Barnes releasing two memorable (which may be an understatement) electronic albums as Leftfield and calling it quits before facing the prospect of inevitable decay. Show More Summary

Music Review: Eartheater - Metalepsis

Eartheater Metalepsis [Hausu Mountain; 2015] by Pat Beane Rating: #BeforeTwitterI. Somewhere along the way in the inky stretches of the imagination, as online worlds folded transpersonality with autocorrective 21st-century mediated subjectivity, I think self-representation meshed with the special process of metalepsis.

Music Review: Lena Willikens - Phantom Delia [EP]

Lena Willikens Phantom Delia [EP] [Cómeme; 2015] by Gage Taylor Rating: Lena Willikens is a selector through and through. I don’t say that as a pithy one-liner to demean her debut EP by filtering it through her DJ career, but rather as a reverential way to approach her production output. Show More Summary

Interview: Daphne & Celeste (with Max Tundra)

by Will Neibergall • March 2015 Pre-9/11 pop music was uncanny, hyper-simulated, not-yet hyperreal, and somehow innocent. Now, the web-surfing public is thrilled with the latest celebrity “no makeup” selfie, deeply interested in theShow More Summary

? Listen: LORD SMS - “16stoned”

Living hard is a life-style choice. Chances are if you live in New York, you have to choose to follow this life-style or get cut off. And there are LAYERS to how hard you can get here too, but a distinguishable separation between those who back down or just go for it. Show More Summary

Premiere: Roomful of Teeth - “The Ascendant: The Beginning And”

Upon first encountering the 8-piece ensemble Roomful of Teeth, I became fascinated by the power and the reach of their pooled vocal prowess. The might of their debut full length seemed to stand in contrast to everything else that was...Show More Summary

Blackest Ever Black announces label compilation, doesn’t quite sing “Hooray for Hollywood!”

Anyone capable of unembellished thought knows that Los Angeles isn’t just red carpets and homeless people fiddling around in their pockets for the purposes of handing you money. A super informative study that conforms with my preestablished...Show More Summary

? Listen: TRIAD$ - “Energy”

Anything. I mean A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G that samples “Jumpin Like Jordan” is certifiably mean. Not schoolyard bully mean. Not you’re getting audited mean. MEAN. Get knocked out in the club mean. Migo Lingo mean. Then you put TRIAD$ on command and AH. Show More Summary

Premiere: Cankun - “Moyit”

Cankun is no stranger to the TMT crew. Nor is Hands In The Dark. And as the French label blesses their fellow country-man with his second album, Only The Sun Is Full Of Gold, Cankun’s newest track “Moyit” is the first great leap into his next musical step. Show More Summary

Film Review: While We’re Young (Dir. Noah Baumbach)

While We're Young Dir. Noah Baumbach [A24; 2015] by Jake Marcks Rating: There’s really no hiding the inspiration for Noah Baumbach’s latest film, While We’re Young. The 45-year-old director has this time given us a story about… a mid-forties filmmaker. Show More Summary

Woods announce 2015 tour dates and that, sure, they guess they’ll play a set at their own festival

Woo hoo! I know it’s only March right now, but… bring on the summertime, right guys? I can see it all now: barbecues, domestic beer with citrus pre-added to it, babes/dudes decked out in their skimpiest and/or neon-est attire, street...Show More Summary

Watch: Asha Tamirisa - XR

In XR, color becomes pain. Taste the rainbow after the finishing move, after the firing squad goes home. Lounge on a flatline behind a TV dinner while watching the artificial sunset dance. Bands of pollutants are stretched over the flicker. Show More Summary

If Steve Gunn were to incorporate and float stocks in “Steve Gunn Inc.” on the stock exchange, I’d be telling everyone I know to invest. The dude’s on an incredible rise at the moment. Following on from last year’s Way Out Weather, an...Show More Summary

Premiere: Mountains - You Can’t Hide Your Love Forever Vol. 11

Electro-acoustic journeymen Mountains populate their full-length LP releases with drifting expanses of analog drone, sculpting meditations equally capable of dilating time during a focused listen or enhancing any concurrent tasks with the benevolent murmurings of their machinery. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Patrick Piper - Bye

By Jspicer on Mar 27 2015 The first I thought I had as Bye unfurled its colorful wings was, “I hope this isn’t goodbye.” In fact, this is a minor plea to Mr. Piper to stay. Much like the classic television episode “Farewell My Little Viking,” I can’t stand to see this minor but powerful character leave. Show More Summary
