stream Clint Mansell's score from the San Junipero episode of Black Mirror

As we alluded to yesterday in our albums of the year post, Clint Mansell's moving, dreamlike score from the beautiful San Junipero episode of Black Mirror may or may not have quite the same impact when detached from the visuals and heartbreaking story for which it was created... Continue reading…


It may or may not be that time yet, but here is the highly subjective list of our 60 favorite albums -- too long, I know, but we could have gone much deeper -- from an unfathomably weird, incredible, terrifying 2016. It was a year marked by loss and uncertainty, and that might be why music felt more monumental to us than ever. Show More Summary

DÆVA – Dream

Here's a glittery, ethereal dream-pop gem from Brooklyn's Gigi Mead, aka DÆVA: "Dream" is the opening track from her beautifully vaporous, two-years-in-the-making, X-Files-inspired debut LP Beta Persei, which has provided a very welcome and chill (and even occasionally danceable) escapist vibe for us these past few nights.

The Librarian (now Black Shield) & Skeleton Hands are very best friends of mine and fellow Racecar pals.

Ellie Herring x gorilla vs. bear takeover: choreograph

Ellie Herring x gorilla vs. bear takeover: dance across the floor

Many years ago my Mom gave me a bunch of her old records & this was by far the best of them. I get that this is a pretty popular one, but I grew up with 60s rock around me. Listening to Jimmy Bo Horne was such an experience! And one that stuck with me. Show More Summary

Ellie Herring x gorilla vs. bear takeover: Throwing Shade – Marble Air

Ellie Herring x gorilla vs. bear takeover: Jad & the Ladyboy

I play this song out a ton & wish there were about 27 more Jad & Ladyboy releases. This one is from Toy Tonic’s Mushroom House Compilation and the entire thing is amazing. “Gervinho” makes me want to be Françoise in “The Beach” but a happy version without Daffy. -- Ellie Herring Continue reading…
