Feature: Transfigurations II

by SCVSCV • September 2014 Harvest Records’ Mark Capon and Matt Schnable are bold dudes. I mean, dudes opened a record store in 2004, the same year that every single person went digital. That’s just their style: an aged, mature ownership of a distinctively Appalachian work ethic. Show More Summary

? Listen: Ben Aqua - “He She”

I lost my iPod on a connecting flight Tuesday and the super airbus conglomerate won’t return my calls unless I tithe, so I’m looking out into the nearest body of water, gathering Eurythmics cassettes. Where did you go? Did a youngin’...Show More Summary

Music Review: The Underachievers - Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium

The Underachievers Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium [RPM MSC; 2014] by Hydroyoga Rating: Brooklyn’s deli cats, like the cats in ancient Egypt, roam the crowded, shelved confines, guarding sacred objects that stimulate the opening of the third eye, our pineal gland, which releases DMT.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow announce sunny December tour dates and sunny new music video in warm soothing tones

Hell. To. The. Yeah, reader. Don’t know if you’ve ever been there, but there’s definitely nothing like shitty, raw, balls-cold winters on the East Coast of the US to make a fat lonely music fan like me want to instinctively binge on some good cocoony, shoegazey dream pop. Show More Summary

? Listen: Cooly G - “So Deep”

Hyperdub’s Cooly G has a new track from the appropriately named upcoming LP Wait ‘Til Night. Her past work oscillates between serving an R&B “deep” and a techno “deep”, and “So Deep” goes the direction of the former, giving us the sensual...Show More Summary

? Listen: Various Artists: Secret Songs (GFOTY, Kero Kero Bonito, etc.) - shh#ffb6c1

After LOGO unexpectedly leaked a fap-worthy transcript from an online date between GFOTY and Ryan Hemsworth, the latter’s new Secret Songs label has been forced to do damage control today by releasing a 10-track compilation of “light pink” songs. Show More Summary

Important Records announces upcoming LPs by Ashley Paul, Zurich, Aidan Baker, and Mugstar + Damo Suzuki

Important Records just won’t quit, just can’t quit, just don’t wanna. Who else would deal with all these fringe musicians on such an astonishingly prolific basis? Probably plenty of people, but the Massachusetts-based Important army get the job done. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Stella - Big Table No People

By Jspicer on Sep 23 2014 Arab on Radar and Fat Worm of Error eloped to Columbus (OH). They had a baby (allegedly pregnant with its own baby), which was adopted and nourished on the teat of New Village Tapes. They named their baby after their favorite Comedy Central program or the first memorable name from some forgotten play. Show More Summary

? Listen: Chicagojazzen - “Jag Trivs Sämst I Öppna Landskap”

At first, the coin is flipped. Chicagojazzen plays the heel to Ulf’s anthem. Chicagojazzen, like Eva Garbor, chooses metropolis, the meddler’s paradise: a version that is softly blighted: a city, simplified and censored, from the pen of a playwright. Show More Summary

? Listen: Lara CrÅft - “The Fire That Burns On Rough Bounce”

Typically, I am NOT a big fan of songs like “The Fire That Burns On Rough Bounce.” But there’s something so compelling about it, especially because nothing else on his SoundCloud sounds like it. I met Lara CrÅft through Andre this past...Show More Summary

Film Review: My Old Lady (Dir. Israel Horovitz)

My Old Lady Dir. Israel Horovitz [Cohen Media Group; 2014] by Amy Lee Ketchum Rating: The Paris featured in My Old Lady, Israel Horowitz’s latest film, is not the glowing romantic city of lights featured in other films like French Kiss or Midnight in Paris. Show More Summary

Apple to maybe shut down Beats Music… or maybe not… but probably? It’s really up to Bono.

Okay. Bad news first: if you’re a NERD, you’ve probably already heard and reacted nerdily to the (relatively-speaking) TERRIBLE news that Apple (the computer company, not the Beatles thing) plans on shutting down the streaming-music, all-you-can-stand-for-$10-a-month-style subscription service founded by Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Show More Summary

Film Review: The Equalizer (Dir. Antoine Fuqua)

The Equalizer Dir. Antoine Fuqua [Sony Pictures; 2014] by Dustin Krcatovich Rating: People like thrillers and action movies because they almost never ask you to think. One can hardly blame anyone for wanting to turn their brain off every...Show More Summary

? Listen: Lipstick Elite - “Holiday”

CALLING ALL CHILLERZ: Holidays themselves are not necessarily chill, although they have a reputation as such. Even the most ostensibly chill holiday I’ve ever taken –to Aruba– was a bit of an ordeal, due to the fact that I was with my best bro (who had invited me) and his girlfriend (at the time).
