Remember about 10 years ago when you had your whole life ahead of you? Tiny Mix Tapes was just starting kindergarten. You secretly thought you were cooler than all of the emerging hipsters, and you were vibing hard to Panda Bear’s Person Pitch. Show More Summary
Everyday is a flurry of snow on your favorite block. Don’t fight it: feel it. Sunset Diver just “Sailing” a vibe straight through the mind grapes of your psyche. Tantalizing quakes. Unusual sensations. Zones realmed only to blissfully cast one away on the wind that blends relaxation with the calm of mirror water. Show More Summary

W e all want to believe. There's a feeling in us all that something exists without tangibility. Like sharing a yawn. Or vowing to/with another. The only other thing to despair upon you, dear reader, is the idea that there are a lot of things in existence you don't know about [or whether or not you have faith in the unknown].

Revert to yolk in the bearing coolant or simply ignore the disassembling circle? The ZRD experiment is irreversible. Bio Future Laboratory is a subsidiary of Eco Futurism Corporation. An echolocated surge to etch the surface. The Nine Variations.
The rounded handles of the SNES controller are warm in your hands -- utilitarian grey with its candy control pad. Fat buttons invite presses like primary colored commands on the Death Star's dashboard. Earthbound's tinny calliope trills to a procession through the streets of Onett. Your buddy plucks a tortilla chip thorn from the carpet when he thinks you aren't looking.
Due to "personal reasons," Bon Iver have canceled all dates from their upcoming European tour (as well as an appearance on A Prairie Home Companion). € 20TøøøøøøøøüR17 has died as it lived: not existing at all. Thus also ends my impassioned plea to find meaning in life, to be allowed to join Bon Iver as their woodblock player. NOT THAT IT WAS GOING WELL AT ALL THANKS FOR ASKING.
I think I already know the answer, but I'm going to pose the question anyway for rhetorical purposes: remember late last year when Spotify was reportedly in serious talks to purchase SoundCloud? Spotify backed out of that theoretical...Show More Summary
Speaking about his working life, James Turrell once said: "In the desert you have the opportunity to do things, and some of them are crazy." California native Ross Wallace Chait (drummer for Ducktails and WALTER) seems to get this notion, using his "Find Your Beach" video to enact a desert-bound incantation that's a little bit crazy and a little bit beautiful.
Thru the clouds with baskets of goodies in yr arms. Into rainbows & drinking from tea cups. A marimba. 2 marimbas. 3. Extravagant vegetation slaps you alive. Unmoored, but coagulating: A palace laden with fruition. A tender know-how,...Show More Summary
Mother lights up at mention of word "guitar" because they rock. It's a different story when her children start begging to play guitar and other secular instruments. There are real dangers. Fall risks and eye injuries. A pack of strings makes a mean banana peel. An amp could easily fall over and crush somone. A drumstick could take an eye out.
The xx have announced a US tour to support their new album I See You, which comes out next week on Young Turks. This spring, their cross-country jaunt will kick off April 15 in San Francisco, after which they will play Seattle, Chicago,...Show More Summary
“Being extremely sensible and matter of factish is a very infantile characteristic,” says Pictorial Candi’s Candelaria Saenz Valiente, as a way of summing up the ideas behind the second video off of last year’s fOREVER TILL YOU DIE.Show More Summary
What if superheroes walked among us? This question, the basis of every other graphic knockoff since Watchmen definitively answered it in 1986-87, has over the past few years made its way to every other comic book adaptation for the big...Show More Summary
Following last year’s “Keep Your Name” (not to mention the five tracks he helped write for Solange’s A Seat at the Table ), Dave Longstreth returns in 2017 with another new Dirty Projectors song and video. The track’s called “Little Bubble” and once again ramps up the earnestness and sincerity in the context of love and loss. Show More Summary
The Shins have a new album. It’s called Heartworms. It’s their fifth, and it’s self-produced. The album is coming out March 10 on Aural Apothecary/Columbia Records. You can pre-order it here. There’s a lyric video for the first single...Show More Summary
People don’t look at you the way they used to, you know. Actually, people rarely look at you to begin with, amirite? How often do we even focus on who’s in the room? It’s a glitch away from nocturnal pneumonia. As if one could possess illness throughout a dream world entered consciously into after taking a break from ours. Show More Summary
Just a few days before the holidays, The Talkhouse premiered “Little Hollywood”: an offbeat children’s story penned by Satomi Matsuzaki, best known as the singer of Deerhoof. The tale, illustrated by artist Kyotaro and narrated by Matsuzaki,...Show More Summary
