Rhino Records to release box set of The Replacements’ Twin/Tone output

After a series of reunion shows this past year, everybody loves The Replacements again. (As they rightly should.) Cool dads AND their prepubescent cool offspring can both wear their same flannel shirts together, as they sing along to the songs that helped put Minneapolis on the punk rock map in the 1980s.

? Listen: Tether - “Get to Work”

Clock in. The time clock is bred with enough teeth this time. Employees have conducted their own private research, and are eager to see how their skills will play out in a team environment. Bedrock. Gain goes sour. Julienned onions, spread out like thrown dice, on the ocean floor. Show More Summary

Premiere: Bobby Browser - “Manchester”

This past weekend I rode my bike from Seattle to Portland (not alone, but as part of a large group ride), and needless to say it was a grueling experience, especially when done in one day. Smooth, mechanical techno works especially well for lengthy athletic events requiring repetitive movement. Show More Summary

Music Review: Dang Olsen Dream Tape - Just Roll

Dang Olsen Dream Tape Just Roll [Constellation Tatsu; 2015] by Hydroyoga Rating: Just Roll. Just go out into the dark night with a sword in your hand, battling evil. Battling internet addiction, battling eating fast food when you have a fully-equipped kitchen and cookbooks for all kinds of cuisines that you could eat. Show More Summary

James Elkington and Nathan Salsburg reunite (not around a campfire though) for another round of acoustic guitar duets for Paradise of Bachelors

Sometimes all you need for a rocking good time is an acoustic guitar; just ask that guy at the campsite who takes requests and then proceeds to ignore your request and play “Wonderwall” ad infinitum. Two acoustic gun-slingers who definitely...Show More Summary

? Listen: Lana Del Rey - “Honeymoon”

After much anticipation, Lana Del Rey has finally released the first single from her forthcoming third album, Honeymoon, which is rumored to be released in September. It’s the title track, and it’s almost six minutes long. (cc: Max Power) Check...Show More Summary

? Listen: TJ Sicilia - Clarity Stones

You’ve crashed on an asteroid. Now what? Are you going to stand still and gaze out in cold fear while ice chunks stream past your helmeted head? Or are you going to lift those big old moonboots off of the hunk of rock you now inhabit...Show More Summary

Karl O’Connor, the Birmingham-born techno producer best known as Regis, has announced a new retrospective album, Manbait. The anthology will include Regis’s recent remix work (Vatican Shadow, Raime, Dalhous, Ike Yard), alternate takes...Show More Summary

? Listen: La Nuit - “Road Snakes”

“un voiture, deux voiture, trois voiture, beaucoup de voiture” Here are three things that most self-identifying intellectuals will admit are pretty fucking great: 1. A woman quietly speaking French. 2. A narrative about aimlessness and futility, involving cars. 3. Show More Summary

Watch: Destroyer - “Girl In A Sling”

What is a house? A temporary structure on a commodity. But then, we wouldn’t know this. We spend our lives filling them with junk. With items. With events. With memories. However, a house is a temporary structure. Replaceable. Destructible. The...Show More Summary

POP Montreal new lineup additions include Tim Hecker, Jerusalem in My Heart, Arto Lindsay

The luminous festival of wonders that is POP Montréal (Montréal itself is basically a wonder in the first place) has added some new names to its 2015 fest lineup. From September 16-20, attendees will be able to breathe the same musical...Show More Summary

? Listen: RAMZI - “princess of cups”

Lashed tongued RAMZI presents the dequilibration in “princess of cups.” Hissed and whispered. Warped and truncated. Naturally melting throughout. 1080p clarity of stuttering PAUSE freeze-frames. Deep acoustic, broken up drum circles....Show More Summary

Future gives Dirty Sprite 2 a release date

The road to Dirty Sprite 2 has been hard. So much has happened in the years between Future’s lauded 2011 Dirty Sprite mixtape and its forthcoming sequel. I don’t know if I can even talk about it. However, I’m quite confident that I can talk about Dirty Sprite 2 ’s release date, cover art, and at least a bit of its tracklist. Show More Summary

? Listen: Zeno van den Broek - “A Diverging Sun”

You wake up during the transfer to see your heart pumping on a silver platter, which is next to a silver platter, which is next to a silver platter–a line of silver platters, each with its own pumping heart, on a steel work table that stretches miles, into a heat lamp red void. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Saif Mode - Troubled Heart

By Jspicer on Jul 14 2015 As any American youth above a certain age, I fondly remember the electronic themes of Saturday Morning cartoons and PBS kids’ entertainment. They still resonant, still echo in the chest cavity where my heart once stood. Show More Summary

Music Review: Slackk - Backwards Light EP

Slackk Backwards Light EP [R&S; 2015] by Stefan Wharton Rating: Slackk’s Backwards Light EP harbors the unshakeable sino-grime sound of yesteryear and mobilizes it, bringing it successfully into the current by combining it with a raving orchestration that fits well with its R&S home. Show More Summary

Watch: AUJIK w/ S. Araw “Trio” XI - GAZEBO EFFECT

It’s an honor to feel weak in the knees because of music, at this point in my life. And Sun Araw and the “Trio” XI street crew got stems just melting with GAZEBO EFFECT. No matter how misunderstandable the GAZEBO EFFECT is, everything surrounding the album is a brilliant blend of PR and art. Show More Summary

Premiere: Gel Set - “The Abyss”

Let me use language here that isn’t applicable to anything insinuating “The Abyss” or manicuring Gel Set. The core that I enjoy in a lot of female-lead pop music this year (Beat Detectives, Smurphy, Eartheater, Lolina, Chikiss, etc.), flickering in the wee-corners, is the hale-yet-faded vocal delivery.

Interview: Circuit des Yeux

by Ze Pequeno • July 2015 Single moments can be fundamental in altering a person’s being. A musical perception often changes over time, but sometimes an event can override one’s aural mentality completely, and push them in a different direction. Show More Summary
