Noveller & Wire (& presumably their 600 collective guitars) are going on tour this month with Xiu Xiu

If experienced guitarists had their own cabal, I bet one of the very first things they’d do (after they finished practicing their guitar scales for the day) is start shooting propaganda films with the goal of making audiences appreciate...Show More Summary

? Listen: ? - Eternal August

Hints on funk that barely stank off the lip. Note of fruity screw vibes barely hanging on. Spending the night in New World Mall’s grocery-store antique section, where them long-padded benches be. Staring at an androgynous porcelain statue for too long. Show More Summary

Music Review: LCD Soundsystem - american dream

LCD Soundsystem american dream [DFA/Columbia; 2017] Rating: 3.5/5 U pon first listen, LCD Soundsystem’s new album feels like the sonic mobilization of Danny Glover’s catchphrase as Roger Murtaugh in Lethal Weapon : “I’m too old for this...Show More Summary

Listen: Taylor Swift - “…Ready For It?”

Upon listening, I have decided that the answer is no, I am not ready for it. But thanks for asking! Kanye: 2, Taylor: 0.

Lina Tullgren announces debut album “Won” on Captured Tracks, shares singles

Shaking an obsession is exceedingly difficult. The intoxicating feelings one produces strengthen and empower us at first, and we hold on and pray for those positives to return when the flip-side starts playing and the compulsion begins to consume all other aspects of life. Show More Summary

DJ Manny announces “Greenlight” LP on TEKLIFE

The next time somebody boasts to you about their multitasking ability as they spill coffee all over the place trying to juggle cup, cell phone, and a blow-up doll of Jon Hamm ; kindly point out the far-greater multitasking prowess of...Show More Summary

Listen: Treasure Hunt - All My Children

Now introducing.... What? Newscaster fled the scene before finishing the sentence, had every reason to fear the worst Crickets in the studio and alligator paws on the fences, doing a Kilroy, looking out at all the meat like Crocodile Dundee--or Moses--in Los Angeles. Show More Summary

Watch: Maston - “Swans”

Sunday morning spills through the valley, summoning the ladybugs to raise their wings in harmony and welcome the sun’s rays onto their cool, glistening backs. The hangovers of the world have all but disappeared, leaving room for only the ambiance and appreciation that comes with another day looking upon everything we’ve been given. Show More Summary

Premiere: Bitemap / PLOM - Essential Nerd Tools split

From Barcelona: two sides of a tape, two musicians, two versions of glitch. Bitemap starts us off with a flurry of tones splattered everywhere, his rhythms crammed and jungly. Plom finishes with a sense of the machinic in search of the...Show More Summary

Listen: Sugai Ken - “Wochikaeri to Uzume (????????)”

Earlier this year, New York's RVNG Intl. grafted a particular branch onto their very verdant back catalog with the release of Visible Cloaks's Reassemblage. The CD featured a collaboration with Miyako Koda from dip in the pool, and sounded out many other influences previously explored in member Spencer Doran's "Fairlights, Mallets and Bamboo" mixes.

Shore announce debut EP, “A Hundred Times,” on Mister Saturday Night

Equal parts weekend-fever house and Wednesday-at-MoMA minimalism, A Hundred Times is the groove-packed debut EP from Shore. A composer and professional vibraphonist, Will Shore plays in lofts, while people lie on the hard wood and stare at the ceiling. Show More Summary

Premiere: Così e Così - “Bee”

My most favorite thing in the world is when someone replies to the question, "What kind of music do you like?" with the answer: I don't listen to music. To me, that's like saying, I don't speak your language. But my language (in this scenario) is simply sounds of intrigue. As if music were a language of chess, and "winning" consisted of conveying an emotion though audio.

Music Review: Lil B - Black Ken

L il B put his Kurtis Blow costume on and made an album. If you had any sort of reaction to that sentence, there's your review. But, if you insist… at some point around Pink Flame, Lil B releases started to be viewed in relation to his prior output rather than to the history of rap writ large. Show More Summary

Throbbing Gristle to reissue entire catalog on Mute

Cartilage in your knee just start pulsating? Don’t worry, rain is not about to start pouring down (I know that would put a real wrench in your plans for the day). Nope, that gentle bodily quiver is the universal sign that there’s some exciting Throbbing Gristle news coming your way!

SOPHIE releases 258-file sample pack with an exclusive new track

You haven't heard SOPHIE until you've heard 258 SOPHIE samples... in a row! Lucky for you, SOPHIE — whose EU booking agent is named Nick Cave, by the way — has just shared a 258-file sample pack for Splice, a site that sells samples, presets, and exclusive artist packs. Show More Summary

Listen: Angel 1 - “Karaoke”

Pure way of the afternoon. Apple slices arranged on Sottsass platter and sprinkled with a little bit of lemon and sugar, as if a bird came, and sat on the windowsill, and opened its small mouth to receive me, tripping over its beak,Show More Summary
