At this point on the spectrum of modern glazed eyes, how many genres of -gaze have been made-up and created? Because I’m thinking we could add another, and the honor of its initial inception goes to Alice MIMA’s “E U P H O R I A,” accompanied by a blissed-/hued-out video, as the world’s best first example of bit-gaze.

Chain and the Gang announce May tour, while Ian Svenonius inadvertently makes you feel bad about yourself

Ian Svenonius makes me feel bad about myself. It’s not his fault. He’s not trying to. He’s just got great hair. I have pretty crappy hair. He wears great suits. I try my best. He makes music and books and speaks in public. I live in a trash can, where I belong. Show More Summary

Premiere: Iglew - “Cymatism”

It’s no secret that grime has begun to unshackle itself from its once solitary London isolation. Not only are British regional variations beginning to bubble up, international artists like Houston’s Rabit and Australia’s Strict FaceShow More Summary

Watch: François Roux - Delayed Boomerang

What stands next to you and is invisible in the mirror? Shadow steps in the locker room, doubting the heel of a black sneaker. Videographer is scared of own shadow cast from clinical top-down lighting. The nuclear steam, scared to roam free, retreats back into the cooling towers. Show More Summary

Vic Mensa joins The Illuminati… er, Roc Nation Records

The latest student attending Jay Z’s charm school for ultra-cool musical young people is Chicago rapper Vic Mensa. Which is basically to say that the lad behind last year’s catchy, smart single “Down On My Luck” has signed with Roc Nation, home of Jay Electronica, Ri Ri, J. Show More Summary

Music Review: Malcolm - GIVEITAWAY14

White Poppy does what is right and natural by announcing Natural Phenomena on Not Not Fun

Like all those times when I was younger and my mom was around to tell me that the prehensile tail my younger brother had was totally normal, I am now here to tell you how absolutely and completely natural it is that White Poppy, a.k.a., Vancouver’s Crystal Dorval, has a new album coming out June 23.

Film Review: Misery Loves Comedy (Dir. Kevin Pollak)

Misery Loves Comedy Dir. Kevin Pollak [Heretic Films; 2015] by 80s Tom Hanks Rating: Applying the lax, conversational pace of his chat show to a tidy 95-minute survey on stand-up, with comics by the score, is an admirable feat on Kevin Pollak’s part. Show More Summary

Many Arms and Toshimaru Nakamura non-surgically join limbs for new collaborative album

It was an unusual phenomenon subjected to a concerted media blackout: during the spring of 2013, an enormously long (but not quite as wide) shadow stretched from east to west across the United States, and maritime experts talking forcibly off-the-record confirmed that the darkness extended across the entire Pacific Ocean as well.

Watch: Furchick - “Hangouts with Wires” (prod. by Dental Drill)

Live buoyant heartbeat noise jam supports a split screen birth ritual. The gloves are on in the mirror maze where pulsing orbs lost from the ball room must be dodged or handled like rattlesnake eggs. Once you take those prophylactic gloves off then once you handle those eggs, they’re yours - heart and soul take responsibility. Show More Summary

? Listen: Mat Dryhurst - MINE: Chapter 1

“”I’m not an artist, I’m an architect.’ The agent didn’t seem to care for the difference.” Furthering his notion of net-concréte, the act of metabolizing one’s internet surroundings ala The Age of Earthquakes, frequent Holly Herndon collaborator, Mat Dryhurst has taken on the task of creating reality-testing art.

? Listen: bryantcanelo - “Pic-A-Watt”

There’s something important going on in the bryantcanelo world. Pick a track. “Pic-A-Watt.” Listen to how the fellah switched sounds from 928 / cold sweat to around PC_MUZAK. Like, there’s that same type of playful and jovial vibe. And similar depth in layers and maximilism controlled with focus in expansion. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Nostromo - Entropy

By Jspicer on Apr 23 2015 A world of what ifs now summarized in Entropy, though the biggest may be what would have happened had Ozzy joined Rush and crashed CBGBs in 1975. But that reads like PR fodder and does Nostromo’s blend of fleshed out hard rock no favors. Show More Summary
