Watch: Julian Cubillos - “I Explode the Bully with My Mind”

There we go… now that’s what it feels like to have blood pumping through your veins.

Cerberus: Handofdust - Walk in White

By Grant 'Gumshoe' Purdum on Jan 21 2015 When thinking about Handofdust it’s best not to consider what’s wrong about what you’re hearing but what ISN’T wrong, as in, any notions of traditional ‘rock’ production and performance don’t apply. Show More Summary


This is a level I’m typically not used to from GOLDEN LIVING ROOM. Last few visits I’ve soared with GOLDEN LIVING ROOM in and out of daily life and on to planes of digital and virtual and pixel existences. Yet, this is REALLY noisy, in a psychedelic mixing zone. Show More Summary

? Listen: Lil Wayne - Sorry 4 The Wait 2

Lil Wayne is sorry for making you wait for his freestyle raps over songs by Beyoncé, Bobby Shmurda, Dej Loaf, OG Maco, Dej Loaf, Meek Mill, O.T. Genasis, and more. • Lil Wayne:


Yeah yeah yeah, doom and gloom and fire and brimstone. We get it, ya old thumpers! Earth’s inevitable end is upon us, and while vermin carry the plague and gross tremors eat through the ground, at least some of us know how to see past the (questionable) future. Show More Summary

Cannibal Ox announce long-awaited sophomore album, Blade of the Ronin

Remember when Cannibal Ox pinky swore they’d release a new album in 2013? And remember when 2013 came and went and all you had to show for it was a bunch of shitty albums? I remember, too, and am still v. fucking pissed. But I also remember...Show More Summary

Cerberus: Charles Barabé - Stigmates

By Strauss on Jan 20 2015 A real eye-popper/exploder. This is one of the more surprising spools to roll through the reels of my deck in some time. Mr. Barabé is a Montrealite who’s in charge over at the La Cohu label. For his own music he’s composing some kind of bizarre musical bric-a-brac, nether-world insanity. Show More Summary

The Go! Team return with a new album this spring in an effort to keep “indie pop” in the OED for one more edition

If you were like me, you’ll probably remember shambly Brighton, UK six-piece power indie group The Go! Team being all kinds of awesome 11 years ago. But also, if you’re STILL anything like me, you probably read this news headline and thought to yourself “whoa, haven’t thought about that band in ages; those dudes are still a THING? Huh…” Well.

Watch: Mondo Cool - “I Wish I Knew”

Deep reflection is purely natural. Nothing else can take away the fragments of mind in memory of a person or situation or span of time. It’s a warp that two-ways what really happened to how the perceiver retells it, mentally. It’s like a fingerprint: everyone has one, yet nobody’s looks like a pool of water. Show More Summary

Action Bronson preps new album, shares “Actin’ Crazy” and freestyle: fuck, that’s delicious!

It’s customary to mention Ghostface Killah when speaking of Action Bronson, and I’m not gonna buck that trend: there’s more than a passing similarity between the two, in both cadence and tone of voice. It’s perfect ammo for Bronsolino’s...Show More Summary
