Pull the thread back through the keyhole. Round off that bandaged table leg with sandpaper. Take a pen knife and poke a hole in your belt, slim one. Reposition the olisbo-kollix on your bookshelf so it gives off just the right vibe. Do all of the above if you feel like it. Show More Summary

Sunn O))) plan Kannon, new LP out on Southern Lord in December

It’s 2015, and I don’t want to talk about genres anymore. They’re just marketing, man. Case in point: Sunn O))) just announced a new full-length coming out December 4 on Southern Lord. Now, I could spend all day trying to explain toShow More Summary, a clone, shuts down

It’s starting to look like the only financially feasible way of indulging in a merry-go-round of music-playing is to literally hijack a merry-go-round, disconnect the automatic carousel organ, and invite friends and acquaintances alike to bob on mutant animals to sounds recently deemed “happening” by the roundabout DJ of the moment.

Cerberus: Ed Askew - Little Houses

By Grant 'Gumshoe' Purdum on Sep 30 2015 Damn, this originally came out in 1997? Because it sounds like every self-centered ____wave kid in the tape game in modern times, squashed together in their bedrooms and forced to compose one titular album. Show More Summary

Music Review: U.S. Girls - Half Free

U.S. Girls Half Free [4AD; 2015] by Willcoma Rating: The year was 2013. I’m a dude falling out of love with Animal Collective and one who didn’t think 2012’s GEM was any good. I was an idiot (w/r/t the latter) and, on top of things, completely oblivious to an exciting new phase of U.S. Show More Summary

? Listen: C DOG - WOKE UP IN LA

You WOKE UP IN LA, huh C DOG? Well, that’s better than waking up on a frigid concrete floor in a jail cell with seven other people surrounding you.

I don’t know about you, but for me, after the initial feel-good buzz of the late-summer news that Deerhunter would indeed be releasing their next album Fading Frontier on October 16 wore off, I somehow felt even MORE DEPRESSED than usual. Show More Summary

? Listen: En - “Blonde Is Back”

When I was in high school, living in the middle of Nowhere, WI, I got way too giddy over upcoming album releases.

? Listen: Personable - “Bushi”

M. Geddes Gengras is a household name at this stage in the game. If he’s not, go dig your own collection and do some research, because chances are he’s on at least a half-dozen physicals you have and didn’t even know that was his amazing drumming or filthy bass-lick. Show More Summary
