Cerberus: Richard Garet - 60’ Cassette

By Jspicer on Sep 24 2015 You take the goood, you take the bad, you take them all and then you have 60’ Cassette. The vibrant long playing cassette from Richard Garet is a mind meld of atonal earth; the ghastly sounds of magnetic fields colliding with the eroding waves of a perpetual tide. Show More Summary

Boris and Merzbow collaborate on new full-length for Relapse

Ever dip a pizza into a bowl of ice cream? Of course not — those are two awesome things that don’t go together at all. Metal band Boris and noise master Merzbow? Those are two awesome things that mix wonderfully together, like peanut butter and hamburger. Show More Summary

DJ Earl drops fresh new LP Live Love Teklife, plots dates

What’s a young footwork-loving parent to do on the occasion of a new LP from DJ Earl? Having never actually been a parent, I can’t say with any certainty. However, as someone who likes to make diaper jokes, I’d say that the first thing one ought to do is live. Show More Summary

? Listen: P_SH - “02”

No hate on Squiggle Dot, because their inception game is fucking FIRE, but it’s SO hard for me to fuck with music when the description reads “Hailing from…” It’s 100% a pet-peeve of mine (especially as someone who writes one to six posts...Show More Summary

Premiere: Erica Eso - “One Hundred Years”

Perhaps one of the most quotable hooks of 2015 comes from an unexpected source. Erica Eso, a new “globalized pop” sensation emanating from avant synthesist Weston Minissali, delivers a excitable melody in an unknown falsetto: it croons...Show More Summary

Arcade Fire announce Reflektor deluxe edition, plus seven-inch and cassette releases

Cheers to Arcade Fire for letting their most recent album breathe a bit before smothering it with the deluxe-edition treatment. Jeers to world hunger. Reflektor, the group’s most recent full-length, came out in 2013, when we were all only babies. Show More Summary

Selena Gomez releases new video through Apple Music, Revival due October 9

I thought the last thing I’d write for TMT would be my farewell letter to all of my fans, but due to the economy and Obamacare, I had no choice but to renew my contract with this fine organization. My first new assignment was delivered to me by my manager, Skarl Poogers, who slammed his genitalia on my desk yesterday. Show More Summary

? Listen: Juçara Marçal & Cadu Tenório - “Canto II”

So, this guy Cadu Tenório has been destroying the Brazil noise and avant scene. And I really hate it when people us words like “avant” and “jazz” and “pop” to describe shit, but I’m really talking avant here in the same performance-way...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Peter J. Woods - Impure Gold Pt. 2

By Grant 'Gumshoe' Purdum on Sep 23 2015 I have to say right off the bat that the approach taken by Peter Woods on his second entry in the Impure Gold series almost NEVER works. Detached narration is a tough pill to swallow, even when all systems are GO-GO-GO otherwise, so for Woods to crack the code is noteworthy in and of itself. Show More Summary

Premiere: Woset - Woset

Deep in the swamps and springs of North Florida lived a slow-moving creature never before seen by human eyes. It’s fur was coarse, it’s face drooped, and it’s back arched. It hadn’t figured out where it began and had no home but found comfort in the few Bossa Nova vinyl it lugged around in a camper’s lost sack. Show More Summary

Oneohtrix Point Never announces tour, requests fan submissions sourced from MIDI files

Didn’t we make things clear enough less than 48 hours ago? It’s a MIDI bonanza! And the only solution to this notational craze is to use the MIDI files that Oneohtrix Point Never (or his alien companion Ezra, if we’re amicable players)...Show More Summary

???? ??????? [Dream Catalogue/Not Not Fun; 2015] by C Monster Rating: Forget the functional music aspect of ??????? by ????; dosing a cocktail of DXM, spliff, Gray Goose, and duster; the shower scene beams light from the blinds in rays of steam at 2:30 PM on a Saturday — nobody is home.

“Happy Birthday” song now in public domain, judge denies copyright claim

The nightmare is over. After 80 years of publishing company Warner/Chappell Music capitalizing off the “Happy Birthday To You” song, a federal judge ruled that its copyright claim is fucking bullshit. More specifically: “Because Summy Co. Show More Summary

Dan Friel announces new album Life, tours with Lightning Bolt

My dad’s a great guy. Attentive, kind, an even-hand with discipline — my father had it all. Well, except for that one dark cloud on my childhood. Sometimes, when I really needed him, Dad would be out making a new experimental noise record. Show More Summary

? Listen: Slobodan Kajkut - Terrible Fake [excerpts]

.And tuned in to the hard broadcast with my cemented hand as if out of a wax museum scare tactic pushed mechanically off the helium singed neuron sucker that listened to me and prodded at me as I played the piano with suckers eyes before...Show More Summary
