Favorite Mixtapes of February 2015 by TMT Staff on 02-27-2015 With a daunting cascade of releases spewing out each day from the likes of DatPiff, LiveMixtapes, Bandcamp, and SoundCloud, it can be difficult to keep up with the overbearing yet increasingly vital mixtape game. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Intolerant - Snow Stained With the Blood of Traitors

By Grant 'Gumshoe' Purdum on Feb 27 2015 I’m not sure what it is about Snow Stained with the Blood of Traitors that has stayed in the back of my mind since it arrived on my doorstep, but its blackened lofi metal appeal is unmistakable. Show More Summary

? Listen: Yagi - SLOWCOLOR

Though you may miss Thailand, it’s still nice to have you back, Yagi. Must’ve had your sampler with you there, huh? Find any good digging spots? Prolly. Special treat, this SLOWCOLOR is. Lithe guitars, pianos, and horns, dismembered and reassembled vocals, and various other jazzy samples mesh with crisp drums. Show More Summary

Film Review: Young Bodies Heal Quickly (Dir. Andrew T. Betzer)

Young Bodies Heal Quickly Dir. Andrew T. Betzer [Factory 25; 2015] by Matt Biancardi Rating: I obsessively watch nature documentaries: partly because I find them calming, partly because I wanted to be a zoologist when I was ten, and partly because I get tired of staring at my wall. Show More Summary

Music Review: Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - A Year with 13 Moons

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma A Year with 13 Moons [Mexican Summer; 2015] by Birkut Rating: When Jefre Cantu-Ledesma took up his residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts, he began making field recordings on his way to the studio. The recordings...Show More Summary

Music Review: Dawn Richard - Blackheart

Dawn Richard Blackheart [Our Dawn; 2015] by Pat Beane Rating: Despite the suite-laced sweep of Blackheart, dense and chimeric, I find myself drawn to the misdirect simplicity of its beginning — Dawn Richard’s solo voice, the emotional and musical bedrock of this project. Show More Summary

? Listen: Big Sigh & Bad Dream Vacuum - “Circus”

My uncle Ralph use to always say, “Listen to this new song by Big Sigh & Bad Dream Vacuum. It’s called “Circus,” and it’s truly top notch!” And I’d always say, “Will do, uncle Ralph. Heck, I could use some new music in my life,” not believing him that such a song existed, but still playing along. Show More Summary

Music industry declares with creepy enthusiasm: Friday will now be the official release day for the world

They can do that, I guess, and it’s apparent that the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) has put an astounding amount of thought into something that probably won’t matter a lick to the industry’s ultimate, collective...Show More Summary


DANCE MIX WATCH! DANCE MIX WATCH! DANCE MIX WATCH! This is DANCE MIX WATCH. I’m posting the best mixes coming in right now. DMW #2 comes from New York DJ/graphic designer JOHNBENNET, who, like like-minded producer Sophie, seems to be using music as advertising. Show More Summary

Watch: Booba - “Tony Sosa”

S/O to my Paris homies JUNKADELIC for hitting me with the new Booba, “Tony Sosa” video. Now, as I’m familiar that half our readership for TMT is outside the U.S., giving us a wider breadth of coverage in musical genres generally unexplored; you’re welcome. Show More Summary

? Listen: Le TRASH CAN - “Prevention”

Behind the pastel science-fiction cover lives a collection of short stories (e.g “SNI Texto,” “CEO,” “Sanction!,” and, reviewed here, “Prevention”), all page-turners. The stories are, letter-by-letter, hyperactive. You’ve heard it before, the battle of left versus right. Show More Summary

Film Review: Queen and Country (Dir. John Boorman)

Queen and Country Dir. John Boorman [BBC Worldwide North America; 2014] by Robert Ham Rating: I rather admire the turn that John Boorman’s career has taken as he settles into his eighth decade on the planet. If his previous feature The...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Henry Plotnick - Qualia (Blue Fourteen)

By Strauss on Feb 26 2015 Henry Plotnick sits at a freakishly talented thirteen years old, but his music can somehow feel even younger. That’s not a jab at whether or not he sounds “experienced,” or “practiced.” Actually, he doesn’t at all, which is precisely what makes his work so distinguished and engaging. Show More Summary

Premiere: Night Cleaner - Sketch for Winter III: Green Sleeves

Late drives into a pit of darkness. No physical destination, just forward. Mentality melting away. Knowing no body knows. Connect to the higher-power within self. Become the all-mighty master of personal fate. Feel the enveloping colorless atmosphere. Show More Summary

Load Records plans LP release of Timeghost’s Cellular for March 17

Listen, I’m a well-known fan of ghosts of every stripe, so if something comes up in the ole TMT news queue with even a hint of ghostliness about it, I’m going to snap it up like the greedy toddler that, in many ways, I kind of am. So...Show More Summary

Premiere: PolyGlove - “Ohm”

“Ohm” – the first single off POLYGLOVE’s newest Redial EP out now on cassette via Illumined Paths – had a video made by SecondFrams Films in all it’s meditative and possessive hypnotic journey, and it’s nothing short of mind controlling. Show More Summary

? Listen: easyFun - Deep Trouble

Q: Is this a new easyFun EP? Is this the same people who made the other easyFun EP? Is it just one person? Is it A. G. Cook? Is it someone named Finn Keane? Is that Hannah Diamond on vocals? Is it ‘Sarah’? Is it Finn Keane? Is the speeding...Show More Summary

Lawrence English swoops down on his decorated hang glider to reissue The Peregrine on Room40

A repetitive and “ominous bird of yore” has gotten all of the celebrity treatment over the past century or so, and it’s finally time for a new avian featherhead to supplant that snide bastard on the deliberately tree-lined red carpet. Show More Summary
