Oh My Gawd!!! The Flaming Lips have just announced a new album called Oczy Mlody, their 15th studio release. The album follows 2013's The Terror, as well as last year's Miley Cyrus collaboration and that one Beatles covers record that I can't look up at the moment because I'm naked (seriously) and am about to hit the shower.
From his home base in Brixton, GAIKA has previously expressed an affinity for Prince and how the latter wasn't especially bound by societal coaxing in his attire or his output as one of the most memorable artists of the 20th century...

Moonlight Dir. Barry Jenkins [A24; 2016] Rating: 5/5 Barry Jenkins’s Moonlight is a masterpiece. I don’t know that I’ve ever felt confident or un-ironically self-aware enough before to write this. Ordinarily, the contrarian inside me...Show More Summary
It doesn’t get much more mind-blowing than algorithmic club music right now. One of the most exciting champions of “algorave” — a movement wherein sounds are “wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive conditionals” — is Tokyo-based musician/programmer, Renick Bell.

Album releases are generally a pretty serious undertaking, but I imagine the process is remarkably less stressful if the artist doing the releasing is constantly creating out of sheer impulse or enjoyment. It’s a lot easier to honor a request for a rainbow painting if all you do during your downtime is paint rainbows. Show More Summary
Pushing percussive music to some kind of an edge, Timber (2011) by composer Michael Gordon (Bang on a Can) is built out of simple ingredients: written for an ensemble of six wooden 2x4s, the piece uses the concept of hitting wood and...Show More Summary
Nothing could do Rhythm Baboon’s “Head In The Clouds” than these two tag-teamer can in the video. Think of it like a Street Fighter II Turbo match. Each with a separate background: the red Volvo, pizza shop, grocery, meter, etc. Not to mention a certain gleam, or aesthetic represented in equal parts. Show More Summary
I t should come as no surprise that Yaroze Dream Suite make beguiling music. Like the Murlo/Deadboy collaboration from earlier this year, combining the talents of Mr. Mitch and Yamaneko is a no-brainer. Both have an affinity for abstract soundscapes, an intuitive feel for melody and rhythm, and an exploratory approach to grime.
More Eaze on that music SNEEZE with h3ll0!. Damn, sounding like Seth Graham — what a corner pocket! Mingling a little Foodman. Grazing Kroger-brand Giant Claw. Tapping out the random vibes. Celebrating another day in paradise of humanity. But it's tomorrow soon. We all "Gotta be somewhere." Perking up is merely More Eaze. h3ll0! on the trickle-spine effect.
When I first heard of Tickled, the much hyped new documentary by David Farrier and Dylan Reeve, I was cautiously suspicious, as it seemed to rely too heavily on an aesthetics of deviance. I’m usually wary of deviant subject matter in...Show More Summary

Feet, don't fail me now! EQ Why season just dropped, tips getting frosty, and heat "is provided throughout the building." Holy smokes off the linoleum after being turtle-waxed into an ice skating rink, and your socks ACTUALLY burn holes in themselves as Whythoven, Volume 2: Nine Sixteen Eighty?-?Eight crashes them noisy downstairs neighbors.

At this stage in his career, I could not think of a more appropriate name for Toth's work other than Wooden Wand. It's a wholesome, almost off-the-beaten-path version of magic. Toth is able to conjure music that I doubt any other person -- save for the shamans and wizards of Appalachia and the Ozarks -- is capable of in such distinct bursts. Show More Summary

Fantastic Fest 2016 may be seen as a crossroads moment for the film festival. While Tim League and the rest of the Drafthouse crew behind the fest have always courted international films, this year felt more like a departure from genre fare to bring in other, excellent foreign films.
