Now over five years since he broke from the constraints of dubstep and time signatures in general, former Vex’d member Roly Porter has been scrambling a whole heap of minds with his dark, amorphous electronic collages.

Peace is nerve-wracking. Always waiting for the big shot: the next bomb; the next stretch of a muscle. In peacetime, it’s all Martin Sheen and the ceiling fan, clashing clusters of stringed instruments, a lonely piano they used to play...Show More Summary
Giant Claw Deep Thoughts [Orange Milk; 2015] by Simon Chandler Rating: For at least one album now, musician, artist, label owner, and former writer Keith Rankin has toyed with the counterintuitive idea that the artificiality of digital technology has the power to liberate human nature.

Frankie Cosmos Fit Me In [EP] [Bayonet; 2015] by Rob Arcand Rating: Lying in bed, chests pressed beneath the weight of warm laptop aluminum, we spot her: 41 minutes and 33 seconds into Noah Baumbach’s 2005 film The Squid and the Whale,...Show More Summary
"What's a Rangda?" she asks as she curled her lips around a cigarette.
Fiction has proven an unwieldy tool in relaying the violence of the Mexican drug war. Roberto Bolano’s final novel 2666 captured the innards strewn over dusty streets and splayed the gore over an expanse of pages centered on a fictive rendering of Ciudad Juárez. Show More Summary
It's been a tough past couple of weeks. IRL has seemed like such a streak of bad luck that going outside redeems instant heart burn. The good look is the amount of outstanding music that is been dropping left and right. And then HKE and t e l e p a t h ????????? drops some future stuff on BARO Records, and brains get mapped by computers and now we don't gotta worry.
If you're a fan of David Lynch and David Lynch-related music on vinyl, 2015 is basically the year all your dreams will come true. Because — drum roll, plz — in addition to the many Sacred Bones releases/reissues that have been poppin' off lately, you can now play the Blue Velvet score/soundtrack on a delicious, crackly blue (duh) vinyl record.
PC Music's Danny L Harle dropped his debut EP today. It's called Broken Flowers and features two versions of the title track, the previously-released "Forever," and a new (and incredible) song titled "Without You." But since we can never...Show More Summary

“What’s a Rangda?” she asks as she curled her lips around a cigarette. “A Rangda,” I say as I smack the cancer stick from her dainty fingers, “is a band consisting of three members whose names I will now list: Ben Chasny, Chris Corsano,...Show More Summary
A truly puzzling piece of Americana out of Western Mass, Gods Lucas is the debut album from Gods Wisdom and DJ Lucas. There’s times I’ll listen to this record and be shaking my head, not entirely sure of what I’m hearing, but I also can’t stop thinking about it. Show More Summary
SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!! DJ NJ Drone went to LA with FUGITIVE, and the SYN slayer got guts deep at #LIVINGROOMTODAY, so -like- the last thing you should be doing is reading, at this point.
Mutant is out today. To celebrate, Arca and visual collaborator Jesse Kanda have released an incredibly NSFW video for “Front Load.” We won’t ruin the experience, but the following sentence is part of the video’s description: “Jesse took one of my pomegranates for this vid without asking.” Read SCVSCV’s review of Mutant (ya bish), and purchase it here and/or here.
Thoughts: where’s Mukqs at on this one? Huh? Pshhhhhhhhhh, nevermind. Words: the majority of my friends listen to Warren Zevon and other shit I politely smile through (Ah, no fucking way. I moan the whole time, fer realz), and I’m also...Show More Summary
