Music Review: Lana Del Rey - Lust For Life

"Daffodil bulbs instead of balls Stared from the sockets of the eyes!" – T.S. Eliot, "Whispers of Immortality" "I could watch, through the songs, my life start to come back to me." – Stevie Nicks, "Dreams Unwind: Lana Del Rey In Conversation with Stevie Nicks"

DeLorean: Lungfish - Sound In Time (1996)

I n 1996, there really wasn't another band like Lungfish around. They were tough to pinpoint, even among punk's various red-headed genre stepchildren. Sure, one could place them side by side with some of the better math-rock and post-hardcore...Show More Summary

Listen: I am just a Pupil - CRYSTAL PAIN

Stranded on an island without a raft, I am just a Pupil messaged out CRYSTAL PAIN in a Fiji bottle that eventually landed on Illuminated Paths' coastline. After setting and forgetting the damp USB in some dry rice, the contents were extracted, then dubbed to tape to be distributed out into the world. Contagious movement, for sure.

Daniel Johnston announces final tour, with support from Jeff Tweedy, Built to Spill, and more

Hi, how are you? Actually, wait. Before you answer that, I've got some bittersweet news to tell you that'll probably tug your mood in all kinds of disparate directions: Austin DIY legend Daniel Johnston has just announced what's being called his final set of live shows ever.

Listen: Nate Scheible - Fairfax

Shit, I keep having good weekends with my wife. There's plenty of friends we've situated around New York. And I've always had pals growing up that I latched onto: Rob, Stephani, Brandon, Laura, Jeriah, Jackie, and the vastness of that in-between. Show More Summary

Ben Frost teams with Steve Albini on surprise EP “Threshold of Faith”

Ben Frost's music has always sounded like the soundtrack to a global machine-takeover (hence, the aptness of the title to Frost's 2016 release on Bedroom Community), so it's no surprise that the Aussie expat recently inhabited a Chicago studio and seemingly attempted to establish AI through punishment and sheer force of will.

Listen: Tomoki Tamura - “DSC House”

"DSC House" nails everything I expect from a proper B-side. It jams just as hard as the tunes on the flip, sneaks some perplexing sounds into its groove, and does so without wasting much time. Here. Berlin-based house producer Tomoki...Show More Summary

Lana Del Rey Lust For Life [Interscope; 2017] Rating: 3.5/5 “Daffodil bulbs instead of balls Stared from the sockets of the eyes!” – T.S. Eliot, “Whispers of Immortality” “I could watch, through the songs, my life start to come backShow More Summary

Watch: The Chainsmokers & Coldplay - “Something Just Like This (Live at the BRITs)”

If you’re expecting a harsh Coldplay smackdown, this is the wrong place. My TMT colleague S. David dropped some wisdom with a recent review/takedown of Chris Martin & co.’s recent EP. No doubt Coldplay is a laughably stupid band, and it’s hard to fathom their ability to stay on the charts for twenty years (!) of blandness. Show More Summary

Apple quietly discontinues iPods Nano and Shuffle

You walk up to the massive marquee: BENE’S WORLD. Everything glistens, is maximally refreshing, feels endlessly replenishing. Infinite. Watch the word stretch out into a formless nothing.

DJ Escrow Universal Soulja Vol.1 [Self-Released; 2017] Rating: 4/5 S cratching at your face, yah. Just scratches, tho. Kill people moving up. Outside > SHOOOOOFFFFFFF: CVS, Rite Aid, or Duane Reade is your pharmacy. This is where you pick up the physical of DJ Escrow’s Universal Soulja Vol.1. Show More Summary

? Listen: M4 - ???? ?? ??

Keeping myself out of the vaporwave flourishings on social media is a priority. First off: I’ve never given a shit so much to ignore why and what and how I enjoy music. Secondly: Music past and present is glorious and I would never ravel enough to ruffle the negative of its existence. Show More Summary
