Tropical Horses whip up quite a toxic brew of industrial-leaning punk on “Dead Gaze Exorcism“. The work of French musician Max-Antoine Le Corre, who writes, plays, and records his own music, this track layers a manic, repeating guitar line over a driving rhythm, while Le Corre unleashes scraping blasts of noise or marauding melodies that reel with drunken abandon. The […]Read more ›
Legendary dub producer Adrian Sherwood has teamed up with the Japanese trio Nisennenmondai and together they will release #N/A this coming April via Sherwood’s On-U Sound Records. Formed in 1999, and with a name that translates as “Y2K Bug”, the all-female instrumental group is composed of guitarist Masako Takada, bassist Yuri Zaikawa, and drummer Sayaka Himeno. Initially a no-wave leaning […]
The Soft Moon played a riveting set last night to a packed house at the Barboza in Seattle. Singer/guitarist Luis Vasquez was joined by a live drummer and bassist, and the animated frontman led the trio thru an hour plus set that included a large dose of tracks from the band’s stellar 2015 LP Deeper (Captured Tracks)–one of our 10 […]
Pyramid Club is a new electronic project from DKA Records collaborators Matt Weiner (TWINS) and Chris Daresta (Anticipation), and today we check out a pair of “demo” recordings from the duo–“Stay Behind” and “Heart Throb“. Setting out with the intention to make to make some tracks that sounded “loosely like the Cabs and Throbbing Gristle doing acid house”, Weiner and […]
The Detroit duo Palaces returned this month with a psych-infused new single, “Glisten & Trip/Still Romantic“. There’s a pretty nifty riff to start “Glisten & Trip“, and every time it seems to be climbing upward, it takes an unexpected detour back down. Meaty enough to marinate on, instead the pair distills several psych styled riffs here, with each time the […]
Looks like the Bay Area garage label Castle Face Records, run by John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees), Matt Jones, and Brian Lee Hughes, will be busy this year with a bunch of exciting releases! While the label probably began as a way to for Dwyer to release his own music, as well as prolific local friends like Ty Segall and […]
Flying Lotus has scored director Eddie Alcazar‘s amazing new short film FUCKKKYOUUU, and it’s showing now at Sundance. Alcazar began his career working for Electronic Art‘s on their gaming series Medal of Honor, before beginning his own media production company, Alcazar Entertainment. Working on video game design and 3-D modeling was profitable, but ultimately unfulfilling creatively, so Alcazar sold his […]
Lumsiokea is the Belgian-Italian duo comprised of Koenraad Ecker and Andrea Taeggi. Based out of Berlin, the pair’s music often blurs the line between electro and acoustic, and their new LP, Transmissions from Revarsavr (Opal Tapes) is no exception. The title references the avant Soviet composer and theorist Arseny Avraamov, whose “Symphony of factory sirens” celebrated the 5th anniversary of […]

1. Oneohtrix Point Never Garden of Delete (Warp) 2015 saw a handful of important electronic artists pushing up against the rigors of the form’s more beat-centric realms to attain something increasingly amorphous in structure. Oneohtrix Point Never‘s Garden of Delete was the most fully realized in this new batch of cutting edge sonic exploration, and it came complete with a […]
1. Dream Koala “Earth” CG artists Adrien Peze and Albin Merle of Fabulous 3D returned this year to work with Dream Koala on this stunning video for the track “Earth“, off the musician’s 2014 LP Earth.Home.Destroyed.

Letherette released their Refresh EP via Ninja Tune on February 5th. The UK-based duo is composed of childhood friends Richard Roberts and Andy Harber.

With little to distract them […]Read more ›

This weekend Death Grips dropped a new track called “Hot Head“, and it’s available for download; though, at the moment the band’s server seems overloaded with requests! Quite appropriate I’d say, as “Hot Head” is an intense sonic juggernaut that mixes a toxic blender full of broken beats, oblique synth shards, and MC Ride‘s unhinged tirade of non-sequiturs. This past […]Read more ›
