? Listen: Vatican Shadow - Media in the Service of Terror

Start your fashion-design career inspired by photos of SWAT police. Now, go vote for someone who might lose and await the next phase of America. Like, loving someone promising to save us all, while speeding away in their get-away vehicle. Show More Summary

Blonde Redhead time travel in their own way, announce box set of early material

Is it officially a summer of contrasts when a band named Blonde Redhead announces a retrospective box set called Masculin Féminin ? I haven’t been this intrigued by advertised differences since Michael Jackson paraded naked people of various ethnicities in front of the camera for too much of an entire music video.

Premiere: Kai Whiston - Houndstooth

Kai Whiston’s filth-rawness is intriguingly matched by the crisp quality presented in the new TAR EP, Houndstooth. As heard in young Kai Whiston’s TMT mix, the cut level and master editing abilities are abound. Grit like faded memories still struggling to hang on. Show More Summary

Björk announces Vulnicura Live, special mask included in box set version

For the Björk completists out there, this Icelandic wonder will be doing her usual trick of releasing a live version of her latest album Vulnicura on July 15 (which we loved by the way). The tracks from Vulnicura Live have been collected...Show More Summary

Arab Strap to reunite for glummest 20th anniversary concerts ever!

Sad bastards, REJOICE (or whatever it is you do in “rejoice-appropriate” situations). As Pitchfork reported recently, ye olde Scottish sadcore duo Arab Strap (a.k.a. those two glum, affable blokes Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton, a.k.a. Show More Summary

? Listen: Angelo Harmsworth - Blush

Give yourself a moment to breathe. It’s about time “right” treated you. Blooming grown only buds from patience. All this hustle and bustle is worth an electric scissor in the end. Like, how much time do you think you’re individually saving? Is there a counter or savings bank for minutes you spared? So recharge. Show More Summary

Premiere: Michael Beharie - Ray Like Morning

Been almost a year since TMT heard something fresh from Michael Beharie, and NO SHIT Astro Nautico put it on again! Dag, it’s been TWO YEARS since his THIS IS ONE BREATH. So let me be the first to publish: Ray Like Morning has been worth...Show More Summary

Interview: Dylan Carlson (Earth, drcarlsonalbion)

Untethered from his band Earth, Dylan Carlson uses his drcarlsonalbion solo project to draw on older and more mystical influences from English folklore. As a solo guitarist, he’s able to paint in even darker hues and explore tunes in...Show More Summary

Premiere: Khun Narin - “Baisi Sukwan”

The closest qualifier one often reaches to when describing new forms of traditional eastern music is “psychedelic.” It is simple to commodify a foreign band in relation to our canon when we portray the musicians as plugging in and rocking...Show More Summary

Music Review: Swans - The Glowing Man

Swans The Glowing Man [Young God/Mute; 2016] Rating: 3/5 T iny Mix Tapes was thrown into something of a behind-the-scenes tizzy last month when it emerged that Beyoncé, that unimpeachable icon of feminine empowerment and liberation, was making more than a few bucks out of female sweatshop labor in Sri Lanka.

Cerberus: Jealousy - Paid For It

Moniker’s elastic firecracker roster just got gritty and down-low. Paid for It is some nega-Pulp; a noir Afghan Whigs—a lot of sexual undertones in a filthy den of propagation and deceit. The lewdness is never front and center a la Cocker or Dulli, but it’s hidden in the bones. Show More Summary

? Listen: Dean Blunt - SS16 [mix]

“Know me broken by my master Teach thee on child of love hereafter” – Alice in Chains “How bad do you have to jack up a neighborhood before the neighborhood just says enough?” – Reginald Denny Hash bars, cherry mash, and tinfoil tiaras. Show More Summary


The innards of machine just need a bit of banging around. That echo like a reverberation that wont quit. Unless the gears start working. So test every last cog. Plug them strings like they’re about to snap. As if resonance has no being but space. Show More Summary

Sam Coomes (Quasi) announces solo debut, shares first single, still feels comfy enough around you to grab a beer from your fridge without asking

Hey, remember your glum chum from Portland, Sam Coomes? You know, from back in your old college days, when he and (Sleater-Kinney) drummer Janet Weiss would crash on your floor after those shambly Quasi shows? Sure you do! Well, break...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Krem ôn’ Wo?ol - Shlubby Dreamer

I write this review with a guilty conscience because I made Krem ôn’ Wo?ol (turns out it’s dude from Florida=Death, which is RAD) send another tape, then found the ORIGINAL tape he sent buried in fecal matter in the corner of my record room TODAY, just as I sit down to finally jot thoughts on this fucker.

? Listen: Mike Nigro - Vertical Music

The appeal of the underarms of a lover, who, pressing flanks of flesh tightly against more flesh so the fragrance, although becoming and lovely to the recipient due to its honesty and scarcity, is displeased by her/his rawness and feels...Show More Summary

? Listen: Daniel Wyche - Our Severed Sleep [Eh???86]

Thousand-mile stares are based on distance. Not a measurable distance, but one that is of memory. Like logging onto a network and becoming fully engrossed in compressed complicity of condensing data. Or blips of clouds within your mind that ring along into an infinite swan-song of bliss. Show More Summary
