Constellation Tatsu announces spring tape batch, shares track by L’eoscombu Couti

It would be senseless to say that a label specializing in mellow, ambient tapes could be "shredding it," but I can think of no other way to describe the glorious sounds emanating from Oakland, CA's Constellation Tatsu. If you haven't had a deeply emotional experience while listening to one or more of these tapes, then you need to set aside a weekend and lose yourself.

Premiere: Hooded Fang - Venus On Edge

Let's face it: although it often says all the cool political things, gets funky with all the sexy dance moves, or fills the gaping hole in your mortal soul with good, simple, "big" emotions... alas, most punk just doesn't "get weird" enough to do all three of those things at once. Not to mention: almost NONE of it makes you smarter. What the hell?!

Listen: SH-2000 - ?Katsu Dons?

Infinite is the ocean of electronics. Plundering takes time into a realm of vastness. Vapid spirals that hurricane the Earth's core and floor that magma melts slow too, and wait. The patience it even takes to travel to Mars, but to start digging now -- to the center of our planets demon -- continues eternity. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Phork - K

Confession: I'm a Gen X kid. I know many of us are lumped with that hateful Baby Boomer put-off, Millennials, but sorry -- I'm a tried and true Gen X kid. I didn't battle with the same issues as many of my friends, who came from nicer and more stable homes but ate that sad sack Corgan shit up. Show More Summary

Drive Like Jehu 7-inch seeing reissue on Merge, announce tour

If you've been spending much of your adult life in a panic of rage and regret over missing the chance to cop the sole Drive Like Jehu 7-inch when it was initially released, your long period of suffering is almost over! The good people over at Merge are reissuing "Bullet Train to Vegas"/"Hand Over First" on June 3. Show More Summary

Premiere: T_A_M - In Tandem

After four years of strong grime-centric releases, Aberdeen’s T_A_M (a.k.a. Thomas Emslie) is stepping back into shade for his most focused released thus far, In Tandem. T_A_M’s four release since December 30 – the self-released There...Show More Summary

Listen: Sunshower - So Romantic

Love finds its layers. As the cover-art for So Romantic by Sunshower below depicts two mannequin hands barely holding hands, it reminds me of the fragility and gentile building of love. Well, y'all, this is where it'll get you.

Music Review: Jessy Lanza - Oh No

S oft beneath the threshold of perceptibility, I am bigger than a body. This is an affirmation I repeat daily until I convince myself with certainty of its truth.

Music Review: Licht-Akiyama Trios - Tomorrow Outside Tomorrow

A s sound artists, one of the fascinations shared by Tetuzi Akiyama (Tokyo guitarist and violinist) and Alan Licht (the musician, writer, and longtime NYC noise scene fixture) is the physicality of distorted guitar sound. Akiyama has...Show More Summary

Mix Tape: I’m super gay and super sad

These cover a gambit of emotions tied to sadness for me and are comforting in times of trouble. Many of them are tied to the time of losing my boyfriend and grandmother. Everything has a way of changing, and you are more than your emotions. Show More Summary

Film Review: Eva Hesse (Dir. Marcie Begleiter)

Decomposing latex dripping from ropes and vaguely sexual sacks and tubes are among the varied objects that comprise the work of the late Eva Hesse (1936-1970). Standing before her seminal sculpture, Hang Up, one beholds a bandaged monstrous frame with a wire coming out at the viewer. Show More Summary

Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Tobacco announces “Sweatbox Dynasty,” tour

Who's hungry for some probiotics? Good. Cuz two years after the perverse, fetid wonder of Ultima II Massage, electronic scuzz-wiz and Black Moth Super Rainbow frontman Thomas Fec — a.k.a. Tobacco — is once again rising up from the fermented bowels of his moldering Pennsylvanian soundlab with a crunchy a new album of hypnagogia-radiated earworms. Yum.

Cerberus: Matt München - Kavierstücke #39 + #16

Beginning soft and nearly inaudible, Matt München’s “Klaiverstrüke #39” opens with sparse and delicate notes, but quickly builds volume and momentum into a frenzied piano composition. The spontaneously composed 18-minute long piece plays out in moments of tranquility and furor (a wind blowing through a field of tall spring grass). Show More Summary

Elysia Crampton announces Demon City with Chino Amobi, Why Be, Rabit, and Lexxi

There’s no hiding our love for Elysia Crampton. From Bound Adam and her mixes to The Light That You Gave Me To See You and last year’s American Drift (#6 on our year-end list), her music as both E+E and under her given name has been enrapturing us for years. Show More Summary

Slowdive working on first album in 20+ years

Reunion tours not serving as a precursor or coincidence to new music have certainly been a thing, but in those cases, we have to assume an unnatural resistance to peer pressure that would otherwise be fit for leadership within the D.A.R.E. Show More Summary
