Miles “Faint Hearted” 2xLP

I’m hitting play for the 3rd time on this stream of the new Miles album, but I can’t help but think how much better this would sound on a proper analog system. If you didn’t know, Miles is one half of techno deconstructionist crew Demdike Stare; safe to say he knows a bit about sound […]

The Black Angels “Indigo Meadow” LP

What could you possibly want more than a new Black Angels album? Hot sauce? A new iPhone case? Well, we’ve got you covered there, too: theblackangels.colortestmerch.com. Stream the album in full at pitchfork.com.

Sacriphyx “The Western Front” LP

After numerous singles and splits, we finally have a full length album from Sacriphyx. This is to be avoided at all costs if you are not a fan of real metal crafted by true musicians. Not really sure how this band remains so criminally underrated, but it shouldn’t be hard for anybody who knows a […]

Lapalux “Nostalchic” 2xLP

Wow, Brainfeeder continues to set the high-water mark for next level beat music. Los Angeles vibes by way of Essex, or vice versa. Whichever way you want to spin it, just get it on your turntable, because this record is definitely in contention for one of the best of the year. Order from bleep.com or boomkat.com. […]

Bonobo “The North Borders” Pre-order

Ninja Tune has announced the imminent release of the newest album from Bonobo, aka Simon Green. And guess what? It’s wonderful. Every new sound from the man is more lush and more pristinely produced than the last. If you haven’t listened to Bonobo before, go back and do your homework (and/or check out the link […]

Lee Noble “Ruiner” LP & “No Becoming” Reissue

Lee Noble’s official followup to Horrorism will be released shortly, and is now up for a pre-order. Ruiner is another collection of “elemental pop music” from Lee Noble, and is being released alongside a much needed reissue of No Becoming, which sold out on cassette so very long ago from none other than Sweat Lodge […]

Tape Tuesday: Holodeck Records

Holodeck has a batch of no less than 6 new tapes out. Each deserves your attention, but if we were pressed to pick favorites it would either be the deeply-concentrated, dancefloor rhythms of Dylan C or the heavy, gnarled and searing psych of Sungod. But what the fuck do we know? Take a listen for […]

Implodes “Recurring Dream” LP

Implodes return with their second album of dark, psychedelic and heavy yet somehow completely endearing music. The first album came out of nowhere and totally blew us away. This album is much the same only instead of coming out of nowhere it’s coming out of somewhere: kranky.net. Copies start shipping on Wednesday for an April 1st […]

Deerhunter “Monomania” LP

What else happened this weekend? Well, Deerhunter announced a new album, that’s what. And just like every other lazy ass “online music journalist” out there I am simply going to copy and paste the band’s own writeup: Mystery disc of NOCTURNAL GARAGE. rat tapes / NEW FORMAT is avant garde(?) but only in context not […]

Daft Punk “Random Access Memories” 2xLP

The new Daft Punk album, Random Access Memories, is available to pre-order on 2xLP. It’s $40, but what are you gonna do about it? Wait until it shows up somewhere cheaper? Whatever, it might. It might not. I don’t know, I didn’t invent the internet. Daft Punk may have though, for all I fucking know: myplaydirect.com. […]
