? Listen: E+E - “summermix #2”

Hot, steaming chunks of earth rolling on down the mountain – pyroclastic flow style, DAMN we have “summermix #2” erupting from the heart of EPC (E+E). The last mix (“summermix #1”) sounded like an inverted, down-pointing tower of babel;...Show More Summary

? Listen: De Leon - S/T

I’m in a movie. I’m De Niro in Heat. De Leon’s self-titled cassette on /\Aught is my soundtrack. I’m Leon in The Professional. My back’s to the wall. My forehead is beaded out, like a hippie’s walkway. I’ve blinked more in the past 30 seconds than I have all day. Show More Summary

Secretly Canadian plans deluxe reissue of Songs: Ohia’s Didn’t It Rain for November 11

It’s a testament to the strength of Jason Molina’s songwriting that you could probably ask three different people what his best album was and you’d get three different answers. Ask me on a Tuesday night when it never quite stormed and I’d probably say 2000’s Ghost Tropic. Show More Summary

? Listen: Abigail Press - “????·?·???”

Abigail Press is intriguing. As I’m unfamiliar up until this point (which is Wednesday around 5:11PM), I took the liberty in finding more about this (LEGIT) elusive chanteuse. This is where I fell into her trap: she wanted me to find out more. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Derek Monypeny - How Can Be

By Jspicer on Aug 28 2014 I am devoted to Ambivalent Soap as I once was to Stunned. I never knew I had a hole to fill but Ambivalent Soap has done so. Why, I ask rhetorically to whoever may read this? When you listen to the latest Derek Monypeny that has sneaked out, you’ll know. Show More Summary

Hieroglyphic Being announces The Seer of Cosmic Visions compilation to be released through Planet Mu

Have you been in search of that perfect space-jazz/techno blend? When you listen to Sun Ra’s most wack-o Moog solos, do you just yearn like some techno-sadist for a distorted, four-four kick to play on top, working manically, futilely...Show More Summary

Premiere: Old Testament - “Trip Light”

Imagine a dead meadow (yes, that Dead Meadow). Now imagine the spirit of one of three stoners rocking out in said pasture drifted from his corporeal form and sank into the pit below, where he picked up a fallen black angel (yes, The Black Angels) before gathering three other kindred spirits and setting off on a journey through Americana wasteland.

Watch: Juicy J - “Low” (Feat. Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby & Young Thug)

The picnic table in a white room (w/ concrete walls, or maybe outside) is a greatly appreciated gallery showcase of Core™ water + Wise™ chips & snacks @ the backyard party. SOMEHOW these snacks and refreshments transfer aqua-marine visual environments right into you. Show More Summary

? Listen: ICH BIN N!NTENDO - “Live from SPL” & “Live from BRKSND”

I haven’t listened to a record in about five years. So you better believe when Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s “T-Bone” hit my ears by way of a warbling and spinning slab of vinyl, I was blown away. Ever since that moment, I can’t get enough of that song. Show More Summary

These days, singer/songwriter Cass McCombs is pretty well reputed as a witty, recondite, and cutting-edge Americana artist who is usually doing tons and tons of cool shit constantly. By contrast, country-punk old-but-goodsters Meat Puppets...Show More Summary

Cass McCombs announces co-headlining tour with Meat Puppets, while a cassette tape melts in the back of my parents’ car

In the summer of 2010, the only music I had in my car was a handful of cassette tapes, including Meat Puppets’ II and a mixtape my friend made me that was labeled John Mayer/More John Mayer and contained no John Mayer. In 2010, Cass McCombs was in between his albums Catacombs and Wit’s End, neither of which came out on cassette. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Suspirians - Suspirians

By Grant 'Gumshoe' Purdum on Aug 28 2014 Suspirians start with a lot of the vibes found on a recent reissue of a Blood Robots record I grew fond of last year (on Water Wing Recs), what with the small snippets of synth, all-girl lineup, and intense nature of many of the riffs. Show More Summary
