  • (Goldmine Sacks) Week in Pop: Esher, Lilies On Mars, Tynethys MP3

    As we spend our holidays feasting and vegetating, Impose's Week in Pop is here to give you a listen and look at what you may have missed, and a glance on what the future may bring. So in the Thanksgiving spirit, we give thanks for Kanye West's "Bound 2" video and adjoining parodies for providing dinner table non sequiturs, we give thanks for The Walkmen and lament news of their Washington Post ...

  • (Friday Night) Shortcircles' Deep Bedroom Mix MP3

    In two productive years Matthew Tammariello, operating as Shortcircles, grew from crafting free EPs of blissed out hip hop with a believer and mentor in Glenn Jackson, to masterminding texturally explorative productions reminiscent of heavy weights like, but not limited to, Bonobo or DJ Shadow. Next week he releases Between Waves on Plug Research, a record that harkens back to a pre-chilwave era. The difference is Ta...

  • (Debut) The Mallard, "Crystals & Candles" MP3

    The art of the break-up and reunion for bands is a cash cow. All those differences that seemed so real in the 90s are being ritually washed clean for a price. There's no such thing as the last show. Not for The Replacements. Not for The Postal Service. Not for My Bloody Valentine. Not even when you're stoked its over for Passion Pit and Foxygen. Bands get back together because there's money in that sort o...

  • (Scuzz) Download a new track from Hunx And His Punx, "Bad Skin" MP3

    Hunx And His Punx are typically in the habit of making glamour-filled girl-laden Motown garagey songs and we loved every minute of it. In a coy, tongue-in-cheek tribute to their name, the Seth Bogart-led group has moved from the sweeter side of the tracks with sodapops and saddle shoes to the barbwired broken bottle-ridden cave where the bad boys go. Their album, Too Young To Be In Love, is a shirtless, headless man ...

  • (Friday Night) Co La's "Disco Nap Companion" MP3

    Matthew Papich, pka Co La, is a master of the cut/paste dubbing, to a point many have considered his innovations worthy of a genre all his own. Since the inception of Co La, Papich has turned minute sample chops into an artform that rivals some of hip hop's most proficient beat technicians. We've always been somewhat astounded by Papich's formula, chopping the vaguely familiar into mince meat, but spicing...

  • (Debut) Dinowalrus, "No Expectations" (Rolling Stones cover) MP3

    Peter Feigenbaum's Dinowalrus is in the process of recording its third album, due in 2014, but in the mean time the trio is busying themselves further with a Knitting Factory show with Crystal Stilts and recording trippy covers of bluesy Rolling Stones songs. Dinowalrus take to "No Expectations" with shimmering psychedelia that sounds as though Robert Johnson learned guitar from the devil on a hippy com...

  • (Hot Cheetos) Jonny Makeup, "DADT" MP3

    Nothing says a summer banger like the subject of Don't Ask Don't Tell being mixed over motown beats and doo wop vocals. In the latest single from Wacky Wacko's label staple Jonny Makeup, previously of the gay hip-hop trio VIP Party Boys, we see the story unfold of Jonny getting a little caught up with a military man, who seems reluctant to do the same. The single artwork evokes a teeange girl's bedroo...

  • (Friday Night) Pharmakon & VÃ¥r, "Passing The Space Inbetween" mix MP3

    I knew this week's edition of Friday Night would be different. The possibilities seem virtually endless when asking a New York-born industrial noise specialists to collaborate on a mix with a (what I perceive to be) moody Dane from an electronic post-punk band. Did I expect to hear the  indigenous/tribal music of John Duncan? No. But, I love that Loke Rahbek of Vår and Margaret Chardiet, aka Pharmakon, mana...

  • (AM Gold) Premiere: Half Waif, "Wooden Horse" MP3

    Classically trained musician Nandi Plunkett can do a lot with little. In this debut track from her now released EP, Future Joys, we see the bedroom musician creating a scope so big that it's hard to imagine anything but a full studio or a live audience behind her. Her voice is comforting, placating, and vibrant in ways that contribute layers of nuance to the track, "Wooden Horse", which makes us think o...

    With their debut LP, Impersonator, set to come out on May 21, Majical Cloudz have released a new track for download called "Bugs Don't Buzz" and it's a slow, patient, and emotional piano ballad that cuts straight to the core. On the group's Tumblr, singer Devon Welsh claims that the song is representative of a time when he'd given up on his songwriting ability, and a friend used it as an exa...

    Today the highly anticipated new record from multi-instrumentalist and drone master Lee Noble releases on Bathetic and with a limited edition opportunity to get both Ruiner and a reissue of No Becoming as a compact deal, you'd be remiss to not take our advice and go order it. Noble's latest is patient and drastic without spilling over the edges; longtime fans of any artist on Bathetic (Angel Olsen, William Co...

    Last week 100% Silk recording artist Pharaohs took us to an alternate universe with their mix. This week we follow up with an artist/band on big brother label Not Not Fun, Jonas Reinhardt, who through some cosmic intuition caused a chain letter by leading with Pharaohs' "Everything Copy". Throughout Jonas Reinhardt's contribution to the series, 100% Silk and Not Not Fun artists like Octo Octa, Xande...

    Brooklyn's band of sisters (not actual sisters, sisters in rock solidarity) Heliotropes have released a song from their upcoming debut album, A Constant Sea, and if there's a record we can't wait to get our hands on, it's this one. After Jessica A. Numsuwankijkul submitted to us a story entitled Monica Lewinsky vs. Eddie Vedder in Purgatory while the band was recording their record in upstate NY, we k...

  • (Friday Night) Greetings from Pharaohs! MP3

    A quality I've always admired in 100% Silk and its artists is the ability to be invariably vintage. Whether the album dropped two days ago or two years, each release is distinctively LA but could easily be mistaken or displaced in the linear history of house and disco. Pharaohs began as an LA-based duo of Sam Cooper and Alejandro Cohen, but with each passing weekend of performing at dance parties, collaborators b...

Along with the announcement comes a free download of their latest single, "Stolen Flowers", which is a distorted pop-punk dream with enough punch and plenty of "ooo"s to keep us thinking of—what else?—summer.

    UK synthpop artist Chad Valley (also known as Hugo Manuel) just released his first full-length record, Young Hunger, and is touring the US and bumping out those good dancy vibes, but that hasn't stopped him from releasing two new remixes. The first comes from Depeche Mode founding member and 1/2 of the duod Erasure, Vincent Clarke, who has taken the song "Up and Down" to a high-powered sweetness that mi...

    When Adventure first graced these hallowed pages, it was in a super hero costume (well, spandex body suit) dating back to some distant era when we made frequent trips to Baltimore for things like Whartscape or plain bored vibrations on a random Tuesday. By Lesser Known, he'd shed the disguise, signed to Carpark and was doing tours with Toro Y Moi and as part of the Dan Deacon Ensemble. They grow up so fast. One m...

    Brainfeeder's Jeremiah Jae is pushing rap weight at an alarming rate in 2013. He spent the month of January organizing his Black Jungle Radio Series, which became a full-length download and a favorite from the month. He linked up with Oliver the 2nd for the Rawhyde cassette, which flipped wild west samples from the television program. He's generally kept his Soundcloud feed scrolling with battered and bruised...
