? Listen: Anla Courtis - “B-RAIN FOLKLORE”

To what do we owe this transformation of self within tones? Further than the distance of a professional swimming pool. The definition of professional is akin to Anla Courtis’ discography.

Cerberus: Curse Purse - Curse Purse

By Grant 'Gumshoe' Purdum on Feb 17 2015 I knew I was going to fall in love with Curse Purse’s self-titled effort, but I’ve felt that way about a lot of so-called ‘super groups’ and been left wanting and wasted (remember Swan Lake? Metallic Falcons were good though). Show More Summary

The Silence rise from the ashes of Ghost with debut album on Drag City

Carpark plans sweet 16 celebration with shows, release, and loss of virginity

If I learned anything from MTV’s ol’ My Super Sweet 16 show, it’s that teens expect a car on their 16th birthday, and if you’re an independent record label named Carpark Records, then there better damn well be a gift “car parked” at every upcoming Sweet 16 show. Show More Summary

Watch: ABBI PRESS - “Ambush” (Prod. Yusin)

Look, lemme be straight up about this: the video and music of “Ambush” (produced by UK duo Yusin with vocals from home-girl ABBI PRESS; all three musicians within the video) are both a bit out of my interest’s realm. However, I’ve always...Show More Summary

Watch: Juiceboxxx - “No Escape From the Heartland” (prod. by White Rainbow)

“No Escape From The Heartland” is a brand new Juiceboxxx joint, and it fucking kills. This is coming off the upcoming mixtape Highway to the Heartland, due to drop March 3!

? Listen: Yàocavé - Fanta?-?C Plus

Deb in graphics suggested three years ago that I should be taking Emergen C once a day to ward off negative body effects. This woman is in her mid-50s, but looks MAYBE young 40s. So I’ve been drinking that V-C since, no matter how much it fizzles into my eyes and/or nose while I be on the sip. Show More Summary

Premiere: Wind Atlas - “Ecdisis”

Wind Atlas, if “Ecdisis” is any indication, sound a bit like Sioux Sioux after the Banshees broke up, if she had gone in a more interesting direction. Or maybe if Peter Murphy had started a project with Sioux Sioux? Something like that. Show More Summary
