 Wintermute versus Skynet

The singularity is already here, it is just unevenly distributed. We sense it in the smell of burnt ozone and transcendence of the flesh through the flesh that pervades the metal box of Rrose’s The Stare. This is the future sound of pistons pumping in the night of a xeno-formed Earth, as the cattle train... Read the full post »

Octave Minds – In Silence

Sometimes even I can get very excited about something and in the case of Octave Minds, a collaborative effort from Boys Noize & Chilly Gonzales, I believe that I’m fully justified in being quite hyped. The last time they worked together the end result was “Ivory Tower” an album that influenced the return of the [...]

The Other Jungle

German Army are back.  Oh happy days. German Army are back.  Bringing with them those tape delayed vocals.  Those drum machines on the verge of oscillating themselves into a heap of splintered circuits.  Those synth washes that speak in the words of confused androids, gazing on a leather clad world of indifference (like that version...

Everywhere you look in the city there are shrines

(photograph is So long ago I left it in the dust by Fritsch) These are hymns for urban-grey pyramids. Everywhere you look in the city there are shrines. Though moments of trascendentalism in the urban experience are rare, they can be achieved with a decent pair of headphones and an active imagination. The sound in your ears... Read the full post »

Experimental evidence of massive-scale epic state contagion through oneiric networks

Epic states can be transferred to others via oneiric networks, leading people to experience epic states without their awareness. Oneiric contagion is well established in religious experiments, with people experiencing epic sensations and epiphanies through oneiric networks. Show More Summary

Tatsuro Yamashita – Merry-Go-Round

Check out this cool-looking guy in the picture above. His name is Tatsuro Yamashita and last week we posted some of his songs that had been filtered-up by some other people. We have only just gotten acquainted with him and as he’s been around since the 70?s it’s probably going to take sometime to properly get [...]

Super Discount 3 // Etienne de Crécy – Night (Cut The Crap)

Didn’t expect to see the return of Étienne de Crécy‘s ‘Super Discount‘ but it certainly is a pleasant surprise considering ‘Super Discount 2‘ came out around ten years ago. If you aren’t aware of these two albums and like the more electric end of the ‘French-Touch’ genre, it would be a good time to go [...]

Hidden Gems Pt.4 ?Vinyl Edition?

Not as many tracks this week for the ‘Hidden Gems’ selection. But, still a very strong bunch of tracks you might not be aware from some very good artists indeed. Phoenix – Heatwave I think this track is pretty much considered to be first single from Phoenix. A track the rides the tail-end of the [...]

The Hated Squeak of Seagulls

(art is by Michelle Lanter.) Though this blog cut its disco teeth on the mean streets of Brighton, gosh, it actually has been a bit of a while since we actually gave you lot a heads up about any hometown sounds. (My theory about this is that because of the way thinks work now, it actually... Read the full post »

Death From Above 1979 – Trainwreck 1979

Death From Above 1979 are back, didn’t actually expect to do a post on this because I thought it would be terrible and it’s pretty much the opposite. “Trainwreck 1979“, which is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album, “The Physical World” and I’ve found myself really enjoying it because at least [...]

The T-word

Trip hop’s allure was its cryptic intimacy. The feeling of intruding into someone’s psychic chambers, into their memories, obsessions and desires, there yet never fully articulated, shapes swirling in the shadows, breaking through the surface of consciousness like killer whales of emotion, muffled sighs and dark moods universal in their abstraction.

Crystal & S. Koshi – From Red To Violet

According to the internet, today is #tbt which stands for ‘Throwback Thursday”. Are you ready? Ready to get thrown-back? ??????????????#tbt????’Throwback Thursday”??????????????????????????????????????? WoooooooooooAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAhhhhhhhhhhhh-ooooh—Wooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. ...Show More Summary

The Presets – No Fun

The Presets return with new single, “No Fun” and the world’s first six-sided, interactive music video, which may just send your computer to noisey-town if you are lucky (like me). If you want to avoid all of that or have had problems listening to it via the world’s first six-sided, interactive music video, then you [...]

Aesthetics are Godlike

(art is by Anna Oguienko) As much as – for  while at least – communal listening experiences seemed to be dominated by the shuffle function (you’d be round someone’s house and there would forever be a mac or iPod on shuffle, plugged into speakers, rather than an ‘album’ proffering a soundtrack) – one thing digital music...

The Man with Two Brians

The time that this has been sitting in our inbox seems inconsequential when compared to the 30 odd years it’s been in existence. After all, what’s a few months between friends? Maybe the 21st Century approach to neglect shall be measured in internet time. Thus being missed by months is the new decades of obscurity.... Read the full post »

This is not Science Fiction

(photo taken from Chris Jordan’s series from the Midway Atoll on how disposable plastic is killing seabirds.) Swirling like Jupiter’s eye in the middle of the Pacific ocean is a lost land. Its landscape and topography are unlike that of any known in the solar system. Bright colours. Strange edges. It has been conferred immortality by... Read the full post »

the interview show: Lindi Ortega

4 weeks agoMusic / Dance & DJ : Versus

Lindi Ortega is a Toronto girl who fled to Nashville to pursue her dream. She doesn’t want to be a mainstream country star, because she’d lose creative control, so she flirts with the boundaries of classic country and indie music. This had led her down an interesting path, opening for Southern California punk legends Social Distortion […]

Jake Kaufman – Pick Yourself Up and Dance

If there is anything all those young and kewl whipper-snapper EDM kidz have taught us from their insightful interviews it is that video-game music is perhaps the most inspirational music ever created. But, what inspires those who make music for video games? Well, in the case of Jake Kaufman, actual music that existed before video-games [...]
