  • (Friday Night) Luxury Liners' Tape Swap Nostalgia Mix MP3

    Carter Tanton, pka Luxury Liners, got nostalgic for his contribution to our Friday Night series. I wish I had friends like his growing up. I gave out a lot of tapes in adolescence with little to no reciprocity. He and his friends played record digger growing up though, testing their knowledge to see who could unearth the strangest cut to slide into their mixtape unexpectedly. With The War On Drugs and Lower Dens in h...

  • (Friday Night) Jimy SeiTang aka Stygian Stride's Kraut-glide Mix MP3

    Jimy SeiTang has been a member of Psychic Ills and most recently Rhyton. While his involvement in those bands might have been the small doses of motorik and minimalist German wave patterns in both bands, as Stygian Stride he explores it without limitation. Stygian Stride is a project all his own that's given carte blanche to emulate the German techno scientists of the 60s who birthed the style through ambience an...

  • (Fresh Daily) Rheteric Ramirez, "N2Deeper" MP3

    Who said the west coast isn't getting any love from the East Coast? It certainly isn't true for us here at Impose. LA resident, Rheteric Ramirez, is bringing the LA west coast, hip-hop funk back to the world . Rheteric Ramirez drops off his new single, "N2Deeper". This slanging track has everything you want in a hip-hop song, from pulsating sounds to witty lyrics. The track breathes in that west coa...

  • (The Future) Sister Crayon, "Floating Head" MP3

    Northern California trip-hop duo Sister Crayon has offered up two new cuts of their upcoming Cynic EP, due out in April. Two years after releasing their debut album Bellow, Terra Lopez and Dani Fernandez new offerings sound to be on a dark and deeply personal kick. Both new tracks spotlight Lopez’s beautiful but damaged vocals that cut deep into your soul in that Beth Gibbons sort of way. Each song also boast ...

  • (Debut) Caleb Stone & Liphemra, "FIGLI" MP3

    With Professor Calculus in a possible hiatus state, Caleb Stone carries on under his government name armed with Protools and the pro tools of LA beatmakers. Last year he dropped the Sleepy Bitches mixtape, proving he's a skilled beat technician. He's following the tape with PUURREESSHHEERRMM, resurrecting the '90s LA slang for a joint dipped in embalming fluid. If further references are needed look to Tup...

  • (Fresh Daily) Cult Favorite, "For All These Birds" MP3

    When you really think about it, crazy people or madmen are looked down upon. Hip-hop duo Elucid and producer A.M. Breakups made an album called For Madmen Only, that treats being mad as an exclusive club. The duo take on the name, Cult Favorite, and their new album titled, For Madmen Only, is a maddening journey of eclectic trip-hop. The album is getting a digital and vinyl (300 pressings) on the label, Reservoir Sou...

  • (Debut) Dream Panther, "Oh, my love // I Just Dont Wanna Stop" (Catamaran Bootleg) MP3

    Last week, dreamy Los Angeles twosome Dream Panther caught our attention with their impressive debut EP Beyonce’s Child. It should probably be mentioned that the promo photo played its fair share in drawing both an awe and horror-inspired focus that feels like descending into a black hole. That mole alone demands at least a day’s worth of consideration! Shit, now I’m looking again... Where was I?...

  • (Friday Night) Shivastep, "Moksha Medicine Mix" MP3

    Shivatep sent a mix under the title, "Moksha Medicine Mix, which meant pulling up a Wikipedia tab in order to interpret "moksha". Like any body who's read more than two Herman Hesse novels, I've got a passing and pedestrian interest in Eastern faiths and traditions, but this was my introduction to moshka which can be translated as self-realization or liberation. Once again, if you've ever r...

  • (Friday Night) Glenn Jackson's "House, Weed, and Much Much More Mix" MP3

    I've never met Glenn Jackson of James & Evander, but in reading his intentions with the mix he curated for the Friday Night series, a kindred soul was introduced. Prior to receiving the quote below, I gave his "House, Weed, and Much Much More" mix an afternoon test run. His selections got me off the couch and enthusiastic about tiddying up my place. The usual desire to invent a reason to crack a bee...

    San Francisco garage-psych rockers, Thee Oh Sees, are known for their prolificacy, having released 11 studio albums since 2003, not to mention the live records, collections and various EP's that they've also put out. Refusing to slow down, the band recently released one of the tracks off their forthcoming album Floating Coffin, set to be their fourth in less than two years time. You may wonder if it's eve...

    The letter you've just read above is written in sincerity and with love from Detroit's Zoos of Berlin. One's first thoughts might be, "wait, people are moving back to Detroit, how have I not heard of this?. Therein lies the ways of Detroit. Never ones to brag, those calling the Motor City home are more concerned with themselves and the furthering of underground movements that involve bartering with g...

  • Misery, Redemption & LoveRegal MP3

    Whether you want to call it revival or interpretation, what is going on over in the EU with Azbin Records is a damaged cut of modern rock ‘n’ roll enterprise. Stripped, swallowed and regurgitated all over the stagnating pressures of confidence, acceptance and happiness. A seance to rouse the bludgeoned corpse of garage rock neurosis. Meek, manic, paranoid. French gaunt. Bellowing from the diaphragms of a...

If you go there, get the catfish plate – spicy with everything on it and a piece of cheese, with spaghetti/macaroni and the baked beans. Goddamn.

  • (Debut) PC Worship, "Like A Sponge" MP3

    PC Worship has new record, you punk bitches. The Brooklyn bottom dwellers are tearing down the drywall on "Like A Sponge" with an offbeat jam that puts the odd in odyssey. Operating as a constant is an unsettling jangle that already stirs feelings of unease. It's magnified by a anxious lick that at first almost sounds mouthed rather than plucked. Come to think of it, maybe it was played with someone'...

    Ellie Herring graced our radar last year with a Social Studies remix that altered the storyline of the original through clever re-arrangements of the vocals, but she's been an ambient mastermind since her 2011 debut Flailing In Attraction on RACECAR. Her ghostly presence on her debut's album cover reflects her intuition towards haunted vibes, which she furthers with her contribution to our Friday Night series...

    I awoke this morning to find two interesting tidbits of hate directed at journalists; one that will go largely unnoticed by readers of this website, and one that should garner much attention. The internet is a fickle place, but not hard to predict in the slightest. The less noticeable affair occurred when Paste Magazine pasted a less than stellar review for the band Hollowpaw's Academy Songs Volume 1. To be fair,...

    There's little Lee Bannon won't touch when it comes to production. In a year's time he released noir-electro under the moniker Gnarlon Bando, ambient-doom that sounded like Burial on purple drank on his cope. EP and Caligula Theme Music EP, traditional hip hop bangers alongside C-Plus as Young Champions, and still found time to explore the Doom with a capital D with the group Super Helpful.

Peaking Lights went deep into their dub collection, Ohbliv went deep into his grown man R&B collection, U.S. Girls enlightened me to the players on her latest record, and Work Dru...
