Premiere: Benjamin Seretan - “Take 2” [Yellow Roses Side-A]

There’s earnestly something inspiring about just a bunch of people jamming out and feeling a piece of music together. It’s an experience that’s unlike no other because there’s a spirit involved, but something more like the jammers are Ghostbusters, harnessing an aura, but only together can the captivate it.

Film Review: Dope (Dir. Rick Famuyiwa)

Dope Dir. Rick Famuyiwa [Open Road; 2015] by Willcoma Rating: Friends are underrated, for sure. That’s why they become undervalued. But we need our friendships, paradoxically, sometimes more than that gallingly finite biological imperative that pressures us all in different ways. Show More Summary

? Listen: PC Noise x Pedicure Records - PC Noise x Pedicure Records, Vol. 1

Let’s get this all straight (potentially). SOPHIE was playing with a brand of music that riffs from a Time’s Square -esque club riddled with advertisements and molly, while simultaneously A. G. Cook PC Music‘d the fuck out of an army that brands from similar territory. Show More Summary

NY venue Trans-Pecos pulls in a fresh batch of curators, including James Chance, Hisham Bharoocha, and David Grubbs

It wasn’t likely at all, but with the recent reception of their long-awaited liquor license, NY venue Trans-Pecos could’ve easily drowned itself in a celebratory consumption of libations, literally flooding the Ridgewood block nary a day after the framed license was nailed to the wall.

? Listen: Jesse Osborne-Lanthier & Robert Lippok - Timeline

When like-minded producers and electronic gurus come together for a “one-shot jam-session,” it’s hard not to be a little wary of the results. Granted, if their track record is solid, one can assume all will be fine; on the other hand, jams can often be indulgent and noodly, resulting in an interesting concept but boring record.

Duran Duran announce new album Paper Gods and tour

You may remember the band Duran Duran from the hit song “A View to a Kill” and a Yoplait yogurt commercial from 2013. Those dudes from those things are back, and this time they have an album that sounds like the title of an old Mobb Deep record. Show More Summary

Premiere: Flatliner - “Blasted Highway”

You wake up under a thick sheet of dust on the shoulder of the highway. You sit up and squint off into the distance, but you see nothing resembling a landmark in any direction. You better set out somewhere before the sun comes up or the ground will fry you where you stand. Show More Summary

? Listen: IZLA - “Live at BK Museum” [6/6/15]

This is DANCE MIX WATCH. I’m posting the best mixes coming in right now. DMW #5 comes from Brooklyn based deejay IZLA, who takes us on a journey of queer global bass, and very quickly too. While Izla’s selecting skills definitely leave a mark (from Celia Cruz to Ynfynyt Scroll), it’s the quick, precise mixing that defines this set. Show More Summary

Watch: Lovely Little Girls - “Buttocks of Gloss”

With proper editing behind-the-scenes becomes theater when the make-up has already been applied. Make-up accelerates transformation; with make-up, a masquerader can conduct spirit, even while sitting there, in the green room, in Chicago, sitting still. Show More Summary

Silicon is the sound of love. Like, all the teens are at the beach in 1980s L.A., and a breeze ruffles the hair of the hottest, blondest cool girl, and all the nerds are just drooling, and then some chiseled future white-collar criminal...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Âmes Sanglantes - Chindia Tower Impalements

By Ryan Simpson on Jul 02 2015 “An inexorably haunted landscape” best sums up the three hours of noise on these cassettes. If field-recordings of the history that surrounded Chindia Tower were folded and layered into 180 minutes of sound this would be the result. Show More Summary

Music Review: RP Boo - Fingers, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints

RP Boo Fingers, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints [Planet Mu; 2015] by SCVSCV Rating: Let’s assume the history of footwork — RP Boo is the father of footwork, etc. — and instead focus on the materiality of the genre’s movement. Footwork oftenShow More Summary

? Listen: Le Scrambled Debutante - Delicious Troglodyte

Who is going to wear the trog suit tonight and pass out the crumbling soul cakes up and down a New England alley studio set, for the new mini-series that is running over budget, intentionally, to keep the crew at task? A hippie undertaker...Show More Summary

Film Review: Rebels of the Neon God (Dir. Tsai Ming-liang)

Rebels of the Neon God Dir. Tsai Ming-liang [Big World Pictures; 1992] by Amy Lee Ketchum Rating: Rebels of the Neon God wanders languorously through life in modern day Taipei. Director Tsai Ming-Liang takes his time, but never bores...Show More Summary

? Listen: The Garment District - “The Feral Surfers”

Whatever wave you’re riding, The Garment District will tint it purple-green with the “The Feral Surfers.” Cut with menacing keys and wash-out stark guitar, backed by a beat that just remains, “The Feral Surfers” hang-ten with the grimiest hang-loose hand gestures. Show More Summary
