Premiere: Hakobune - “curtains far seen”

I offer humble thanks to Takahiro Yorifuji for continuing to enrich our lives with his whispered ambient guitar work. The catalog he has created under the Hakobune moniker gathers limited cassette and CD releases by the month, like motes of dust and ash carried by the wind to their resting place in some untouched corner of the forest floor.

Mike Krol signs to Merge for new album Turkey

Every day I like to figure out what I learned. Sometimes you’ve gotta dig a little, and it’s something less than mind-blowing. Like yesterday, I learned that my fridge magnets are getting grotty. Today, I learned something a bit more...Show More Summary

? Listen: DJ 809 - “SpongeBob SquarePants Anthem”

Jersey club producer DJ 809 continues the tradition of taking children’s TV show theme songs and turning them into something trying to invoke nostalgia, and while it’s easy for that to succeed, it takes a certain skill to make the track more than just that. Show More Summary

Feature: 2015: Second Quarter Favorites

by TMT Staff • July 2015 Disgusting hybrid outgrowths. Nebulous movements of rhythm. Ontological nihilism. The last three months can’t be easily reduced to pithy storylines, but there were certainly themes that arose from our favorite releases. Show More Summary

Blank Realm return with Illegals In Heaven

Emerging from the sweaty streets of Brisbane with a penchant for creating their own take on the cross-pollination of the garage/psych/pop daisies, Blank Realm have been setting our hearts on fire for some time now. And after their “gloriously...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Internazionale - Elegy For The Victors

By Ryan Simpson on Jul 01 2015 Ennui has always been fashionable to one degree or another, but boy is strong right now. Internationzale is one of a handful of bands whose modus operandi is a kind of semi-tumescent, electronic-based industrial that lends itself well to extended afternoon moping sessions.

Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster, Harmonia) and Christoph Mueller (The Gotan Project) plan collaborative LP

Not to sound too conservative, but I think that when two people come together before (g/G)od, their family, and the state, it’s usually called a marriage. Which makes me wonder: why is it that when two people come together before a record...Show More Summary

? Listen: Sly & The Family Drone - A Fiesta Of Skin And Tears

A humorous, playful veneer encompasses the music of Sly & The Family Drone (“The ampersand is obligatory”). A bit of wordplay and Sabbath worship here, a sneering track title there; you get the sense that the joke is on you when Sly’s...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Sumbu Dunia - Sister Nature

By Strauss on Jun 30 2015 Look, not gonna lie, I’ve been sitting on this one a little too long. Sorry and everything, but hey, we are dealing with really good music here, not something I can take lightly for these scant little bursts of thought-splurge/ego-splays I get with the old Cerberus. Show More Summary

Music Review: Abyssal - Antikatastaseis

Abyssal Antikatastaseis [Profound Lore; 2015] by Joe Davenport Rating: Fans are fickle. We want so much and yet can rarely agree on what it is that we want. Artists, of course, are also fickle and can’t always find whatever sound it is they’re searching for. Show More Summary
