Premiere: Ras G - “Auntie Jackie”

Please, if you haven't already head the news: Ras G dropped the fourth Baker's Dozen edition on Fat Beats, and it's fully playable upon clicking these words and the Bandcamp play button. Second, the single, "Auntie Jackie," gripped a nasty VHS smear video of old clips put together by the masterful, GodsConnect.

Feature: 2016: Post-Truth and The Network Affect

"The electric light is pure information. It is a medium without a message, as it were, unless it is used to spell out some verbal ad or name. This fact, characteristic of all media, means that the 'content' of any medium is always another medium." – Marshall McLuhan, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man

Feature: 2016: Favorite 50 Songs

A AAAAAAAAAAAAND WE'RE BACK. Another 12 months slipped away, and what a 12 months they were. Did you guys catch that election? What about that Dr. Phil interview with Shelley Duvall? Boy, we are truly in it now aren't we!? Well, whatever your stance is on the happenings of 2016, surely we can all agree that it's been SOME kind of year, not just another snoozer like 2015 or 2014.

Listen: Miyako Koda - “Butter”

Miyako Koda of Japanese avant-pop band dip in the pool released her first and only solo album, Jupiter, back in 1998. Japan's 17853 Records has just released an iteration of this album, In the Shadow of Jupiter, which features original remixes by Chee Shimizu, Jordan GCZ, and some other un-Googleably obscure names.

Listen: Patrick Piper - Headbang

If you just went IN right now, how far do you think you'd go? Linear concepts are blown pupils out of proportion, and next-level is merely as life changing as uncertainty. Neglectful art is subconscious, though. There's a heavier emphasis on complete oblivion, obviously. Show More Summary

Watch: Odwalla88 - “Purr Hi/Giggle (Lil Ugly Mane Remix)”

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.

Primavera Sound 2017 lineup announced: Frank Ocean, Aphex Twin, Slayer, Solange, Bon Iver, Grace Jones

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 is, until the 2017 Primavera Sound lineup dropped. Like, OK, let's examine what is more or less a dream lineup here. Aphex Twin? Sold. Say no more.

Listen: J.G. Biberkopf - Ecologies II: Ecosystems Of Excess

The shades are drawn. CD-R ((in stereo)) drowns out the town. Cushions brighten up the room. Indoors, all is calm. An alarm, a timer, very little else; a perfect environment to process the noise, as J.G. Biberkopf does. He injects urban audio-observations into bald bleached digital pink. A conceptual coping mechanism?

Listen: Beta Librae - S?/?T

Whether or not the discography of Lillerne Tapes is in a perpetual flux to find new sounds, the Chicago-based label has never fluctuated too far from maintaining their over-arching aesthetic of sound exploration. Presented in S/T, Beta...Show More Summary

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.
