Known for cutting up exotica with knifley detail, Monster Rally is back. Go ahead and slice a spell of time out of you day, and prepare to get lost in Mystery Cove. Sounds coil. Humid atmospheres build. Air wraps. I mean, seagulls don’t venture this far inland unless the turntable is prepped. Show More Summary
Following 2015’s Ink, Jacob Long’s (Mi Ami) Earthen Sea project will deliver yet another batch of vaporous ambient dub with new record An Act of Love, out early next year on Kranky. The album, according to the label, is the result of a particularly challenging period in Long’s life. Show More Summary
B efore we get into the newest missive from Virginia steel-string worker Daniel Bachman, let's talk a little bit about Jack Rose. Few guitarists loom larger over the modern fingerstyle movement than Rose, and the man's tragic, much-too-early passing has only compounded his legendary status within the rustic circles of contemporary folk.

From Lymbyc Systym's Facebook page: Last week I lost my brother, my bandmate, my creative partner, Michael. I love him. I miss him. Thank you to everyone for listening, supporting and keeping his memory alive. He was so, so lucky to have all of you. Jared Here are two Lymbyc Systym tracks we helped premiere earlier this year. RIP. :(
From Sharon Jones's rep: We are deeply saddened to announce that Sharon Jones has passed away after a heroic battle against pancreatic cancer. She was surrounded by her loved ones, including the Dap-Kings. Thank you for your prayersShow More Summary
Isn't it lovely? Here in the cabbage patch here in a trick film? We're playing bump the pumpkin while the silhouette of the cinema's first director glides a'course the patch. Whichever fat suit came and tried to give off folliculitis of the reel is prohibited from this spin around the earth. Show More Summary
Hey, remember your ex, TIDAL? I think you guys met several months ago when you were desperate to listen to The Life Of Pablo, and TIDAL was the only one who could get you your fix. What a wild ride that was; you must have listened to “Highlights” like 60 times. Show More Summary
Veteran Philly noisenik punks Pissed Jeans are coming out with another record; Why Love Now will be released February 24 via Sub Pop. The four-piece have also dropped the album's first single, a sludgy behemoth-of-a-banger titled "The Bar Is Low."
If you're feeling like listening to a record that feels epic and uplifting at the same time as prophesizing something catastrophic and foreboding (and we can't for the life of us think why on earth that might be the case), then chances are you'll have the early-oughts Texas cult band Lift To Experience's sole album The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads on high rotation right now.
Here I sit with a 55-gallon drum of coffee from Dunkin' listening to wonderful ambient synthwash from Seattle's HOLOVR, morning light filtering through the window above my computer, a new day. Feels good. But it's pretty hazy outside—wildfires...Show More Summary
From sunny Los Angeles, the Sofia Reta Corporation sends nutrients and information.
Trashcan-lid drum hits beat against a calcium shell of off-white noise until it punctures -- a trickle of math rock yolk seeps down the static hum's pale paunch like a neutralized pimple's red teardrop. Its contents are collected in a squat coffee mug painted the waning orange of a Muppet's flesh. Show More Summary

D ?WN's new album, Redemption, is billed as the third in the trilogy she began with 2012's Goldenheart.
The rounded edges of your pink DS Lite rest snugly between a cradle of adolescent fingerpads and thumbs that survey blocky buttons below like twin cobras poised to strike. Textureless threads of melodica augment your balloon's-eye view of the village below as a 16 bit avatar treads a dirt path, leaving a neat succession of ovoid indentations in his wake.
Face it, y'all: these days, "reality" just ain't cutting it anymore.
From sunny Los Angeles, the Sofia Reta Corporation sends nutrients and information. Like QT before them, “Whoa Cowgirl,” with a little nod to GFOTY, hyper-performs the commercial release of character, except, here, there’s no one face,...Show More Summary
