Premiere: Erica Eso - “Pink Atlantic”

Last October, one of Chocolate Grinder’s fav labels Ramp Local dropped the Erica Eso CD and CS release of 2019. The entire album itself is very theatrical in the sense that there is something flagrantly going out within and outside the lyrics narrating the story. Show More Summary

Watch: Joseph Bastardo - “Rhododendrons”

Every year, my wife and I take me moms out to the New York Botanical Gardens. As the vegetation typically changes seasonally — although annually everything remains rotated and fairly consistent — the trip is never planned, but typically coincides with an event or holiday. Show More Summary

Cerberus: Matt Shoemaker - Flight | Chromatic Splitting Injunction

Matt Shoemaker has kicked up quite a din here so let’s get right to unpacking Flight | Chromatic Splitting Injunction and the many tape-game rules it breaks. First off, loving the beats that spring, slither, and sprawl across the spools like snakes crawling under my ear skin. Show More Summary

Premiere: Jonathan Snipes - Excess Flesh

Excess flesh? Excess everything. That’s what being scared is all about. Gorging on both ends of the spectrum until you’re practically immobile from over-stimulation. Ride the high of “I Don’t Race (Lunchtime Remix)” through to its nightmarish...Show More Summary

Fluxus artist Yoshi Wada’s 1985 album Off The Wall gets vinyl reissue, putting the THRILL back in bagpipe music

Like many of you reading this, my MAJOR COMPLAINT with the glut of experimental, mind-altering bagpipe music on the market has long-been the fact that it just… doesn’t sound good unless it’s on vinyl. So just imagine my tremendous combination...Show More Summary

? Listen: Lipgloss Twins - “Doodle”

“We’re back.” – Lipgloss Twins Lipgloss Twins return! PC Music’s once-scariest duo — who we’re guessing is A. G. Cook + Felicita — has now become one of its cutest. They scared the fuck out of everyone two years ago with “Wannabe,” but...Show More Summary

? Listen: Stress - “Lift”

I had an interesting conversation the other day with a mutual pal in the “music industry,” and the topic was about how modern dance music is not only something to make people feel the need to MOVE, but it’s also something of an endurance test. Show More Summary

Rabit’s Halcyon Veil releases compilation feat. artists from Janus, Príncipe, N.A.A.F.I, premieres DJ Nigga Fox track

Rabit’s Halycon Veil imprint has been on a tear since it started last year, with releases and mixes by Why Be, Angel Ho, Imaginary Forces, Chino Amobi, and more. The label’s latest, its fourth official release, arrives today. It’s called...Show More Summary

Premiere: Alpha Strategy - “Grasshopper”

First look, that’s a lot of eggs. I take another look. That is a lot of eggs. Just what in the world are these grown men with grocery bags on their heads doing with all of those eggs? And it’s not just the eggs, young grasshopper. These...Show More Summary

? Listen: iLoveMakonnen - “Black Mamba Freestyle”

After taking a shit-ton of shots tonight, Kobe Bryant made it to an astonishing 60 points in his last NBA game, closing out a 20-year career with key final shots that capped off a rare Lakers win. Since Flea’s absurd rendition of the...Show More Summary

Music Review: Deftones - Gore

Deftones Gore [Warner Bros.; 2016] Rating: 3.5/5 C ultural reappraisal and cultural cycling are things, and they’re never going away — even the best DJs in the world are starting to toy with sampling System of a Down and KoRn. No one’s...Show More Summary

Lolina (Inga Copeland) announces CD, vinyl, and digital versions of the previously video-only release Live in Paris

As far as I can tell, nothing about this was alluded to at the time of the original Live in Paris video release about a month and a half ago, and it’s important that we dispel an obvious theory from the get-go: there wasn’t a susceptible...Show More Summary

Watch: Lil Durk - “Trap House” (ft. Young Thug & Young Dolph)

Fresh off January’s 300 Days 300 Nights mixtape (which swiftly made it into our monthly mixtapes column), Lil Durk has decided to tap Young Thug to join him and Young Dolph for a new version of mixtape highlight “Waffle House.” Only now it’s called “Trap House.” Whoa. Show More Summary

Film Review: Everybody Wants Some!! (Dir. Richard Linklater)

Everybody Wants Some!! Dir. Richard Linklater [Paramount Pictures; 2016] Rating: 3.5/5 About a third of the way through Everybody Wants Some!!, Willoughby, the chill, California-bred stoner/pitcher rises to the challenge and casually takes the self-proclaimed largest bong hit in campus history.

? Listen: Fog Lake - “Rattlesnake” / “Strung Back Around”

Fresh from the release of last year’s incredible Victoria Park on Orchid Tapes, Newfoundland native Aaron Powell has been slowly gearing up for the latest LP from his bedroom pop project, Fog Lake. After premiering “Rattlesnake” with...Show More Summary

MUTEK Montréal details “second wave” of lineup, featuring Lee Gamble, Lorenzo Senni, and curation from SHAPE and RBMA

Maybe it’s a consequence of being the premier North American festival for fans of electronic avant-garde, or maybe the plethora of organizational affiliations is confirmation of MUTEK’s own gravitational pull, which is sure to bode poorly...Show More Summary

Premiere: Severed+Said - “Error Unknown”

Cerberus: Shane Tripp - Silk Challenge

Though we number but few, there are those of us who still remember the wonderful evolution of power pop as its tendrils were continuously pruned throughout the 90’s. By the time nu-cock rock screamo metal rap became vogue, the offshoots of the Big Star sound may as well have been roots hiding underground. Show More Summary

FKA twigs working with Oneohtrix Point Never

Either it’s completely coincidental that both FKA twigs and Oneohtrix Point Never posted the same exact teaser clip last night to their respective Instagram accounts or the two acclaimed artists are working together on new music. Probably...Show More Summary

? Listen: Brandon Locher - “Medium Frequency”

“I don’t think I will ever find the Motherlode because I believe it’s more than just one thing. It’s about here and now. About waking up to this moment, seeing this for what it is. This awakening is available to all of us, at every moment.” –...Show More Summary
