Let's just call it like IT is. Writing about Ben Seretan's music in the modern North American music market, such as what TMT covers, is --[RE] let's say-- out-dated. shrug emoji though because he won't stop. You can't stop Deakin from bringing you back to those golden years, or hardvapour. So why not recognize the memories, right?

Umberto releasing new album “Alienation” on Not Not Fun

Russian Circles to release “GUIDANCE,” announce tour

YES! I'm so excited! This is great news for us all, readers. I don't know about you, but I was JUST COMPLAINING to my therapist the other day about how my life just didn't seem...

Watch: James Ferraro - Human Story 3 (Official Trailer 2)

Listen: Rodeo - “Ghost Town”

At camp, long live the fire of plastic and paper. Long live stage sets, humbuckers, magnetic tape, and Morricone. Volumes of rain, enough for retreat. Volumes of rain, denser than a bookcase. It speaks volumes about a man that he can... that he can... well, I'm at a loss for words, but you know what I mean, don't you? Don't you know what I mean, know what I mean?

Listen: yyu - Karaoke

Since knocking us to our knees with 2012's TIMETIMETIME& TIME, Chicago based musician yyu has kept a fairly low profile. Though, when talking about someone who performs underneath a sheet, that's not such a surprising tidbit.

Music Review: Operators - Blue Wave

Operators Blue Wave [Last Gang; 2016] Rating: 4/5 I have three points to make. The first point is of scale: This era of the album release as cultural singularity leaves little room in our conversations for minor, modest, and frankly inessential records. Show More Summary

Premiere: The Craters - “Kids Can Tell”

Moderate vandalism, smashed guitars, rooftops, 40 oz beers, gas station snacks, night drives, and an empty parking garage accented by yellow balloons blend together in The Craters’ video for “Kids Can Tell,” creating the perfect recipe for a longing sense of desire to suspend the days of a clichéd youth.
