? Listen: Faangface - “Everyone On This Ship Is A Goddamned Liar”

Yeahhhhhhh. Put on a slab of unidentifiable static chaos like “Everyone On This Ship Is A Goddamn Liar” and react to its twists in structure like you would a particularly surreal high school romance anime. With nothing familiar to cling...Show More Summary

Oneohtrix Point Never to perform new score for Koki Morimoto’s Magnetic Rose on October 4 in the UK

So, aside from replacing Death Grips on tour with Nine Inch Nails with his “hard-rock cyberdrone” guns blazing, what’s Oneohtrix Point Never a.k.a. Daniel Lopatin been up to these past few months? It’s funny I should start off a news...Show More Summary

Film Review: Second Opinion: Laetrile at Sloan-Kettering (Dir. Eric Merola)

Music Review: Rustie - Green Language

Rustie Green Language [Warp; 2014] by Josh D Rating: Glass Swords, Rustie’s debut album, was released when the terms “trap” and “EDM” had the respective contexts of both gangsta-oriented Southern rap and, like, David Guetta, and thereby escaped the economy of festival market-shares through its unique sound and vision.

Music Review: Bitchin Bajas - Bitchin Bajas

Bitchin Bajas Bitchin Bajas [Drag City; 2014] by Matthew Phillips Rating: Relax. Feel the waves of relaxation wash over your body. Beginning at your toes, feel each one relax as a soothing ripple of calm moves over your legs, up into your back and chest, out into your arms and fingers, up your neck, across your face.

? Listen: SOPHIE - Live @ RAY-BAN X BOILER ROOM 005

Using a stand-in pictured above (along with a stand-in for QT) at last Friday’s RAY-BAN X BOILER ROOM 005 event, SOPHIE destroyed everything in her wake. Yeah, you had OPN up there fucking around with sounds beforehand and Hudson Mohawk...Show More Summary

Oh, so you enjoy music, huh? Well, me-oh-my, do I have something for you. yyu — human being and human doing — recently doled out a little babe of beauty called moomoo vol?.?1 via his Bandcamp, which is the best news I’ve heard in a bit. Show More Summary

Sebadoh announce fall tour in support of recent album Defend Yourself, Thurston Moore, warm thoughts of the 1990s, more

Bask yourself in the glow of the 1990s! The glow emits from Sebadoh, a shining light of the 1990s. Yes, Sebadoh put out a new record, Defend Yourself, last year. Yes, Sebadoh’s first album came out in 1989. But they did put out six albums...Show More Summary

? Listen: Deadboy - “Footsie Work”

I love when producers reappropriate some really clear, really intense grime vocal and pair it with a synth that could just as easily soundtrack some medieval fantasy film. The new production fills out Footsie’s vocals while still highlighting the beat. Show More Summary

Wildbirds & Peacedrums return with new album, cleaner cowbell

Swedish duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums are back, you guys! They’ve got a new single, and they’re charting the course for their first European tour since 2011, which is NEWS because one of them is literally a bongo and one is, like, a stork that won’t stop twerking or something. Show More Summary

? Listen: Gem Jones - Admiral Frenchkiss

Fuck pop. Not like “Fuck Pop, man!” but maybe #fuckpop and “maaaaaaaan.” French-kissing in a cloth-top at Ectomorphic Lover’s Point, flipping the A-side back upward after the click, and watching (Name)ville burn under a purple sky. I’m all about “God in U” personally. Show More Summary

Run the Jewels announce injurious new LP RTJ2, punch creative album titles in the throat

Tired of the musical equivalent of small-talk, or the musical equivalent of obnoxious drunkards calling attention to themselves by seeing how many scalding onion rings they can fit down their pants? Despite the “boast rap” impression...Show More Summary

? Listen: A l i c e // MIMA! - geminemini

The only way to achieve full-on glitch-out mode is to prepare yourself to live it. If your life hasn’t already been cracking around the surfaces, maybe that smooth talk you always front ain’t working in your favor. Presentation is everything and A l i c e // MIMA! goes to great lengths to bring you geminemini. Show More Summary

Matt Nelson (tUnE-yArDs, Battle Trance) releasing new solo sax LP on October 21 via Tubapede Records

As an instrument, the saxophone has taken a beating to its credibility. Blame it on its overuse as the solo instrument du jour during the 1980s or the fact that Lisa Simpson was its prime advocate during the 1990s… for whatever reason,...Show More Summary

? Listen: Victor Portsmouth - “Instruments to Detect”

Beau Devereaux has had a very productive year. In addition to releasing a very dope tape on Sacred Phases (under the Samantha Glass moniker), Beau also just issued a cassette as Roan Linden, via his own Golden Cloud Tapes imprint. If...Show More Summary

TEEN to go on tour with Sondre Lerche, according to the cool guy who hangs by the 7-11

Hey, dude, can I get a smoke? Thanks, pal. Got a little info for you. TEEN, you know TEEN, right? Band from Brooklyn, but who isn’t, right? Yeah, well, they put out a record earlier this year, think it was called The Way and Color, pretty sure it came out on Carpark. Show More Summary

Premiere: Cadu Teno?rio - “Bebe?”

There’s a real stagnant nature to Cadu Teno?rio’s Vozes. Like, purposefully pensive, but just awaiting the drop. As if the entire release were just a man in shorts, hands in his pocket, posed as if he’s waiting for the bus, 10-toes hanging...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Smokey Emery - Soundtracks for Invisibility Vol. III

By Jspicer on Aug 25 2014 For an artist now on his third installment of invisibility-influenced soundtracks, Daniel Hipolito is doing a poor job of hiding himself. But maybe I misrepresent? Perhaps it’s a misunderstanding? Likely, I just missed him. Show More Summary

Mix Tape: I fucking hate you, but I also think you I loved you and now all I want is to move on without relying on copious amounts of alcohol and casual sex
