Listen: Proc Fiskal - “Greatest of All Times”

Not one for nuance or humility, Edinburgh-based producer Proc Fiskal cuts right to the sonic chase. "Greatest of All Times" is as assertive as its name suggests, pummeling its imagined opponents up against the ropes with a flurry of muscly bass riffs, drippy chiptune melodies floating in the hostile air to signify a boss battle.

Not Not Fun announces new albums from X.Y.R., Iguana Moonlight, and Canada Effervescent

Just as I'm psyching myself up to spend yet another summer faded-down in Key West listening to "I'm the One" on repeat, Not Not Fun (mercifully) comes along to remind me that the party's over.

Listen: Barbati Confeti - “????”

I don't know what it means. It's devotional tho, but to what god, I know not of. It kinda starts in the ether of action figures in the sun, then tilts, nimble & snowy, gliding w/ the zephyrs on sea-serpents. A kind of music that you intensely listen to at first & then let fade into the furniture halfway through. Show More Summary

Listen: Apartment Mouth - Nystagmus

The premature baby hippo born early yesterday morning, six weeks before her due date, remained stable overnight and is receiving around-the-clock intensive care from Zoo vets and animal care staff. Her mom, Bibi, is doing fine and, because of her experience standing still for ultrasounds, is allowing milk to be collected. Show More Summary

Legendary Florida post-punk group Morbid Opera gets reissue treatment, premieres “Polyester Pig”

It's an inescapable fact of life that, despite how good a band might have been "back in the day," there are scads of them throughout time who, for whatever reason, made scarcely an impression outside their own hometowns or states. It's...Show More Summary

Old Joe Knight still on that Rangers, and his most recent video is for the single "Max Heart Rate" off his recent Doom Trip Records release of Texas Rock Bottom (on tape or CD). The video is comprised of a cut-motion photos laying in a line on a path to... You tell me!

Premiere: Thalassa - Bonds of Prosperity

"... after so many millions of nights without sleep, without purpose, without self-deception." The sea still has the benefit of being beyond cliche.
