Plently of electronic albums like to play at foreshadowing a future in which everyone is endowed with nanomachines and robots are effective at performing our most disgusting occupations, but how many of them actually succeed to the point of distinction? Stefan Kushima — a.k.a.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again is a knight in shining armor, a radiant beam of light, a skyrocket to the stars. Or at least, that’s what is easiest to believe after the Baton Rouge rapper’s year last of success and admiration. FollowingShow More Summary
It didn’t make our list of year-end favorites, but I’m willing to usurp the consensus view of the TMT staff and unilaterally make Kelela’s Take Me Apart our (unofficial) 51st favorite album of 2017! A highlight among Take Me Apart ’s...Show More Summary
F or many people, 2017 was a year endured rather than lived. If 2016 was marked by the sheer immediacy of survival, then that sense of heightened awareness led us to wonder just how the fuck we got to where we are now. As reality continued...Show More Summary
LLLL — a veteran chillwave outfit, former J-Pop composer, and one-time Bones sample — stitches translucent quilts with decades worth of dream-pop detritus. Hold their latest tapestry, “Falling,” up to a natural light source and squint...Show More Summary

From Motörhead’s Facebook: We are devastated to pass on the news we only just heard ourselves earlier tonight…Edward Allan Clarke - or as we all know and love him Fast Eddie Clarke - passed away peacefully yesterday. Ted Carroll (who...Show More Summary
Your eyes are creeping open to whispers, naturally gun shy to any sound arousing you from your casual 8pm nap. You can’t quite tell if it’s the opacity of your moist eyes or the tangled sherpa blanket obscuring your sight but you’re grateful all the same, protecting you from (in all likelihood) far too much light for the moment.

You know how some things are sort of uplifting and depressing at the same time? Like 85% dark chocolate? Or pretty much every minute of every Wes Anderson movie? Or setting foot into a Chuck E. Cheese’s as an adult? Frankie Cosmos is kinda like that. Show More Summary
Italians may do it better, but Johnny Jewel — matermind of Glass Candy, Chromatics, Desire, Symmetry, Iris In, Professor Disco, 24fps, Technicolor Marbles, several bands that only appear in Thomas Pynchon novels, legendary USBM pioneers Weakling, aaaand the Italians Do It Better label 1 — does it BEST.

Peaking into the inner workings of someone’s creative process can feel somewhat sneaky and wrong, but Portland, Oregon based artist AMULETS has left his front door wide open and given us all a chance to see how he shapes those lovely swells he swells so well. Show More Summary
Fame has come upon Haley Fohr with all the subtle breakneck speed of a category 5 hurricane. And for good reason. Her breakthrough Circuit des Yeux album, Reaching for Indigo (Drag City), was perched atop many 2017 year-end “best of”...Show More Summary
Orange Milk is already milkin’ 2018 with some exciting release action, and since Tiny Mix Tapes is officially known as “The Music Website for News of Exciting Releases,” it only makes sense that we’d be excited to tell you about another...Show More Summary

At once expansive yet also confined, the texture of Nortt’s sound has polarity. Like a ship marooned in the unforgiving Antarctic ice, the crew huddles in cramped quarters, yet outside is the unending tundra. With reverb used to good...Show More Summary
It's hard to believe that we're approaching the five year anniversary of the tragic death of Jason Molina, who blew thousands of hearts and minds with his melancholic folk songs under his various monikers (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric...Show More Summary
My tangled tongue. The glow of stringlights on plastic firs, plugged in til sunrise. Heart failure polite. Double bass and tom rolls. Louis Johnstone strikes again with a mindful collage of atmosphere and records, to spread out with in the sunshine. Enjoy!
The world’s a pretty fucked up place these days. You’ve got ice caps melting on either pole, you’ve got more marijuana dispensaries than Starbucks and McDonald’s combined — and now, apparently, you’ve got more people buying cassette tapes than healthcare plans. (Actually don’t quote us on that last one).
Seth Graham wants you to know he doesn’t give a FUCK what you think. Okay…not really. But with his upcoming album Gasp, coming in March, the Orange Milk label co-owner has made it clear he is forgoing convention in order to push out a playful, otherworldly modernist album.
