We’ve been riding high on the warm and fuzzy vibes of this LP for a couple of weeks now, and if the lukewarm Pitchfork review caused you to neglect it, we suggest you re-evaluate. pleasure suck ticks exactly all the right boxes for us, and is bound to be in heavy rotation as the Midwest […]

Candelabrum – Necrotelepathy LP

If raw, in-the-red, wall-of-sound black metal is your thing, then you are likely well familiar with Portugal’s Black Cilice. You probably didn’t miss the extremely limited initial pressing of Necrotelepathy from side project Candelabrum either. So you wouldn’t have any need to pick up the repress that is now available from analogworship.com or arcanealtar.bigcartel.com.

Thee Oh Sees – Live In San Francisco LP + DVD

I’m sold on the cover photograph alone, but if you need more convincing: it is worth mentioning that Thee Oh Sees are objectively proven to be the greatest live band of all time. Or so I’ve heard; I’ll have to rely on documentation like this in order to confirm: castlefacerecords.com.

Reuben Sawyer. You may not be familiar with his name, but you’ve likely seen his art adorning records and merch for Chelsea Wolfe, Deafhaven, etc. Hollow Sunshine is his brain child and their new record is ready for pre-order from Iron Pier. “Bring Gold” is easily the best one yet from the illustrator-guitarist-drummer-singer & co.

Jefre Cantu–Ledesma – A Year With 13 Moons LP

‘A Year With 13 Moons’ is the new distorted and pulsing offering from Cantu-Ledesma.

Medicine – Home Everywhere LP

Laner & Co. are back with a new fuzzy blissed-out Medicine record. ‘Home Everywhere’ sounds the way walking out into the light after being in a dark theatre feels.

Kindling – Spike & Wave 7″

7”s just don’t get enough love these days! Not everyone has time for a long player. Maybe they need a jolt of something before something needs to come out of the oven, or before the significant other who hates their musical tastes/volume addiction comes home. Whatever the case may be, there is always room for […]

Tape Tuesday: Tiger Village – V

Tim Thornton aka Tiger Village is killing here here on ‘V’ (the fifth tape in a series of his). Synths, samplers, tape loops and drum machines all collide to generate some absolutely whacked out elctronic…I mean, tech..actually wait, or…man, I don’t know whats going on here but its totally hypnotic and gaze widening. It’s something […]
