Forma Physicalist [Kranky; 2016] Rating: 3/5 A ccording to Brooklyn kosmische trio Forma, whose newest album Physicalist comes titled after an ontological field of thought concerned with the “physical” nature of all things in existence, the concept of a fully improvised, shape-shifting musical approach is a loaded and perhaps misleading endeavor.

I feel Das Black Milk are far too cool for me. This nearly-cassingle length matchbox of a cassette strikes the flint hard. It sparks and sizzles, lighting the cigarette in panoramic slo-mo. It’s James Dean hair and Jan and Dean’s dead man curve; racing for pink slips amidst a full midnight moon. Show More Summary
I know what you’re (possibly) thinking. Here comes another album riding the wave of the ASMR hype tsunami in part set in motion by the Holly Herndon track “Lonely at the Top” (from the album Platform ), and so now we’re imminently subject to roughly 50 minutes of a woman whispering nothings that are as sweet as they are creepy.

Roads near my house lined with trees, driving. Almost fall, browning leaves soon to be pulled away by the wind. Late September. Upbeat French house music stained with euphoric pop blares over my speakers. I’m feeling happy, immersed in the frenzied bliss of CLUBKELLY’s debut EP. Show More Summary
I’ve been looking forward to this moment. People have “taken it there, but never to this unintentionally [blatant] limit. Like, all at once, reality television soundtracks on cassette are like THE WAVE. And nobody ever gonna listen to...Show More Summary
"S taring out your car window, I feel my size." The opening line from the Bellows' single "Thick Skin" evokes a certain turn of feeling, an external bolt of stimulus that sits deep in the brain, a note both small and powerful.
I am 19 and we just broke up and my ears want loud things. I ask Lauren, tattooed whirl of a bartender, petting a potted plant ("they can feel it, you know?") if she's heard the new Against Me! record. "They're a little mainstream for me, you know? Arena rock, right?" I confront how invested she is in stroking that particular fern. Show More Summary

New York-based techno producer and former 1080p associate Via App has a new album on the way. Sixth Stitch is coming out November 11 via Break World Records.
Each track on Quay Dash's new EP Transphobic feels club-fit, whether the spot's damp and blunty or pouring $13 well shots—and all the wonderful variations in between. "Shades On Top Down" bumps at an especially infectious bubblegum pace as her quick sass and wit skip along with the warm keys and cute zips of Korean producer Hongsamman.
I know I don't have to worry about Luciernaga, nee Jao Da Silva, at all; he's going to get in touch when he needs to with his carefully curated wares. He's not like that tape-label-ownin' guy in NYC who kept mispronouncing Goebbels.Show More Summary
It seems almost Make Believe that anyone would want to buy Weezer's third, fourth, fifth, and sixth albums on vinyl, just to add a little bit of warmth to the progressively insufferable songs of Rivers Cuomo. Yet on October 28, Geffen...Show More Summary
The octaves in unison, the melodies clean; forgery is beside the point. The whole thing is scrubbed clean against the metal ritmo basin, in a round motion, into a round cut. The basin is ripe with rust and filled with rain water. A little of it drizzles out the drill-holes at the base of the ritmo. Show More Summary
Finally-free Gucci Mane has been wasting precious little time in getting new music out into the world. With one album under his belt this year (July's recorded-in-six-days Everybody Looking ) and his ankle now free of its house arrest monitor, Gucci Mane's new new album Woptober is already set to go.
