Watch: Kanye West - “Famous” (directed by Eric Wareheim & Aziz Ansari)

Man, I can understand how it might be kinda hard to read another Kanye West post. I don’t blame you much for wanting to be free. I just wanted you to know that Eric Wareheim and Aziz Ansari’s unofficial video for “Famous,” released earlier this month, is now the song’s official video. God damn! Don’t worry. They still hood famous.

ESP-Disk’ to release collaboration from Mat Walerian, Matthew Shipp, and Hamid Drake

Okuden sounds like a place, but I’ll be buggered if I can find it anywhere on Google Maps. This is probably because the Okuden I’m looking for isn’t so much a place as a state of mind, man. A place where the heaviest of the heavy current...Show More Summary

Watch: Tim Heidecker - “Work From Home”

Watch: James K - “SOKIT to me Baby”

Last we heard from James K, it was on 1080p by-way of collaboration in SETH. As a solo project, James K sounds like Chicklette- or Odwalla88-lite, but in an extremely good way, as all three projects explore fragmented beauty within the experimental pop realm. Show More Summary

Music Review: Gaika - Security

Gaika Security [Mixpak; 2016] Rating: 4/5 S ecurity. Opens with jingling keys at a grating Hz, the skid of trains on skinned tracks, the drone of unremitting vigilance: I stand here, but it’s not the front line. If security is access to information, man does his own security, standing at the vantage of a badman. Show More Summary

? Listen: RAMZi - “00”

Is there anything unsettling about psychedelia anymore? It’s been generations since Pink Floyd and Jefferson Airplane, since college dorm rooms had that sort of dizzying tapestries and Grateful Dead kitsch that my dad still proudly holds onto today. Show More Summary

After having covered the previous two releases for New York label Psychic Troubles, it’d be easy to assume they’re dropping either a delicate acoustic tape or a dark ambient burner, but Allover’s debut Afterimage churns and grinds along a darker, noisier path. Show More Summary

Premiere: Lyonnais - “Hyperblues”

Geographic North is still continuing to keep the realness in “underground” music, y’all. From folk to ambient to club to basement rock, Geographic North is an excellent example of maintaining and curating with a musical vision, while having fun. Show More Summary

Ghostly to release Melbourne duo Kllo’s “Well Worn” EP

The project of two probably-ultra-cool cousins (my cousins are NOT this cool, ugh), Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul, Kllo has generated quite a buzz in Australia, where they’re playing sold-out shows and making festival appearances off the strength of their breakthrough release, the Cusp EP.
