? Listen: Diamond Soul - “Jackie (Monroe Dub)” & “Window Shopping”

Goodness, for a second, I though Diamond Soul was Diamondstien, and it threw me WAY off guard upon hitting the play button. So I got my head straight, and immediately think “WAIT, DO I OWN Augmented Reality?” Found it; I own it. Then I found this filthy Orange Milk Records compilation. Show More Summary

? Listen: Grand Canyon Spring Breaks - “visage”

Hiss plays a major role in the vacuum-sucking nothing but a trick reed burp in the draw of the receding back-riff, a wave ring of f n the distance between the substance of the soul survivor and the drone of the soul suck. Well, survive this sealed clear bag of vitamin ma x -ers; take the whole mario pill set for a real lon grid e. Show More Summary

Music Review: Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions - Until the Hunter

Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions Until the Hunter [Tendril Tales; 2016] Rating: 3/5 “It’s not so precious; it’s just a song. It’s just art and art is nothing. Art is not precious, anybody can do it. A five-year-old can do it. It’s not a big deal.” – Hope Sandoval A lot of people seem to be unplugging now, and it’s a bracing sort of peace.

Cerberus: Billy Gomberg - Slight at that Contact

In 2014 I interviewed Students of Decay head Alex Cobb about his own music and various musings on the state of experimental noise and drone. At one point we spoke of “the enchantment of the everyday,” and as Cobb elaborated, “Applied...Show More Summary

? Listen: m a l i b l u e : ( - just end it ???

Don’t give a fuck about the new year, y’all. Always give yourself new music. m a l i b l u e : ( here with those gloomy, up-beat vibes, just end it ???. Pairing harmony with anti-hero ways of getting listeners to feel uncomfortably pleasant, just end it ??? is almost like smiling when seeing how it all comes to a close. Show More Summary

Listen: Pun Collins - “Interface”

A stylized mutative lore to it. A sizzled buzz like an incoming subway. Soft whoops lift crescents into its fantasy. Droop down to it. Sway in the darkness to it. Kiss it with ancient lips.

Listen: Sage Caswell/Nackt - “Take A Day Call Back Later” / “Rising Tide”

It's crazy to think Sunset Silk came out more than a year and a half ago. Feels like that's been a back-up banger every time I've needed a back-up banger, which feels like a weekly appeal. And although the L.A.

Listen: DTTØ - Botanics

Zooming on the highway, Above the city, Palm tree, Palm tree, Palm tree; A uniformity like the moon's surface. Sometimes a cigar is just a symbol. Sometimes a movie camera is just a movie camera. But whatever; what has never been and...Show More Summary

Listen: Yearning Kru - “Ambrosio, gum-sapper”

Warp into the Yearning Kru dimension and find yourself stranded upon an island of a lost, modern time. The mountain upon this island is a hologram of well-decorated rock, molten lava, and moss. Palm trees and plants are entirely edible, and have a re-growth process that reoccurs weekly, almost. Show More Summary

Listen: Perras On The Beach - Chupalapija

To be a young man in the fucked-up Argentina of 2016. The old "No future/nihilistic/hedonistic" thing was already done to death by your father, brother, cousins, and whatnot. What's left to do? Smoke some pot with your friends and record lo-fi garage rockers about your fear of falling asleep 'cuz that's the time you are not with them? It's pretty much what you guys already do.

Listen: nemuri winter - nemuri winter vol. 1

Shutting Christmas' back door behind me, I circumnavigate the block without my winter coat for the first time in weeks. Front lawns are slightly thawed, yet still bear their frosted tips. From afar they resemble fat pieces of spearmint chewing gum: hospital green with powdered white highlights. Between premature coldspells and January malaise, now is the winter of contentment.

Watch: Jane Zhang - “Dust My Shoulders Off”

Since moving to Flushing, Queens, I’ve been using a live-translation application with my work-phone. It’s something I do in transit from home to work and work to home. Mostly Mandarin with some Korean, as the demographics here are 75% Chinese and 17% Korean. Show More Summary

? Listen: Payroll Giovanni & Cardo - Big Bossin Vol.1

The DJ Quik produced Big Bossin Vol.1 MC’d by Payroll Giovani & Cardo is exactly the sort of warm-feels we all need on those dark-at-noon winter days that are grey at sunrise, street-lamp lit for 20 hours a day. Classic gangster funk...Show More Summary

? Listen: Holy Fuck - “Shivering”

Abandonment. It’s a word that doesn’t get tossed around all that much, but you can feel it permeating. What is this year, but a sense of abandonment of anything meaningful? This isn’t about what happened on a particular day a month ago. Show More Summary

? Listen: MEINSCHAFT - “The Midday Sun at Midnight”

In windmills of fire, I go under, forgotting everything that happens after the burn (post-truth / post-music / post-fake). I am being carted around by Little Man in a longaberger basket. We’re on our way to the ceremony, taking place among the daisies. Show More Summary
