  • (Friday Night) Ohbliv's Grown Man Mix MP3

    Richmond, VA's Ohbliv has a quiet prolificity in beatmaking. He's graced our ears at random, in those rare moments when we wonder if dude has new music and we spend an hour catching up on his Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages. Perhaps it's the hermetic distance Richmond has from our stomping grounds? As it stands, Culture Dealer is the sole purveyor in Ohbliv music, releasing the Freekbeat Cs last year. We...

  • (Brooklyn Hater) Get zoned with Loop MP3

    If you ask Sonic Boom about the new "deluxe" Loop reissues, he might tell you (like he told an interviewer) that he doesn’t care much, because the band ripped off his own highly influential band, Spacemen 3. While I don’t really believe this to be the case, I could understand Kember’s paranoia due to the fact that yes, both bands functioned around the same time period and played droning...

  • (Just Heard) Featureless Ghost, "Cover of Night" MP3

    Last month, Atlanta-based duo Featureless Ghost dropped their debut LP Personality Matrix, via Night-People. The dyad consisting of Elise Tippins and Matt Weiner has now announced the new video for single 'Cover of Night'. Video producer TACHYONS captures the electro/synth-pop aesthetic of the song with band members emerging from behind a wall of acidic haze, VHS fuzz and bleeding cathode ray colors. Check o...

  • (Debut) Zac Nelson remixed by Kenseth Thibideau MP3

    West coast weirdo-pop extraordinaire, Zac Nelson snuck his Charbroile LP under our radar in November. Had we known, it would have graced our Best Music list for the month. Stream the record at Debacle Records' Bandcamp if you can't just take our word for it. But this world moves fast, too fast to dwell on last month. Nelson has several exciting remixes in the work for Charbroile, but the first comes from Kens...

  • (AM Gold) Alex Calder, "Suki And Me" MP3

    Reading "THE TAPE 2008-2011 RIP DUDE" on Makeout Videotape's Bandcamp would have led to a combo byte post of Say Hello with a late notice addendum and the memoriam of Say Goodbye had Captured Tracks not shown good will towards Montreal men. Rather than sign the Mac-man strictly, the Brooklyn label recognized that Makeout Videotape was a two-man operation of balanced parts and signed former drummer Alex ...

  • (AM Gold) The Furr cover The Kinks' "Sunny Afternoon" MP3

    Sure, it's Monday, arguably one of the worst on record after Google crashed. That was hours ago though, much like the last whimper of the weekend hangover was quelled by a pot of coffee. Still need a pick-me-up? Try this Kinks cover by The Furr. Loosely associated with Crash Symbols, and by loosely I mean through marriage, The Furr consists of Liz Pavlovic on drums, Eli Pollard on vox, Cy Pollard on bass, and Fra...

  • (Friday Night) Sinkane's End Of Days Mix MP3

    Being a Brooklynite, Sinkane got a taste of how one prepares for disaster during Hurricane Sandy. A person must stock up on necessities; food, water, first aid, and booze. But what if the disaster is potentially our last day on earth? Well for Sinkane, born Ahmad Gallab, he plans to disappear into the ether or fight off flesh-eating zombies and winged-demons to a soothing soundtrack. In preparation for the looming Ma...

  • (Scuzz) Las Robertas, "Seconds Away" MP3

    After a two-year hiatus, Costa Rica’s Las Robertas are back with more American-style dream-punk courtesy of Art Fag. Since their last LP Cry Out Loud, the trio has switched to a new a drummer and beefed up the production and distorted muscle. The Dissected Affair 7” certainly punches harder then anything on their debut, but still takes the bulk of its sound from the cesspool of garage-poppers outfitted w...

    Heed the rapture. 12-21-12. It’s coming up kids, quick. Bow down. Sell your souls…to the hands of the Lord. “Whether my love will go/And everyone I know/Will disappear/I have no fear in the hands of the Lord,” raspingly croons Torino, Italy’s Vernon Sélavy, aka Vincenzo Marando, on his debut LP’s closer “All the Sinners Burn”. Stressed Desserts Blues comes courtes...

  • (Friday Night) Kid Smpl's Evening Mix MP3

    When I contact potential curators for the Friday Night Series, I always stress that it does not need to be a dance mix. Friday Night can be game night in with intimate friends, background music while you apply make-up, dinner music, or music for an impromptu, scandalous rendezvous. Upon listening to Kid Smpl's mix, I felt as though the loners and night owls were spoken for. Kid Smpl's music is often associate...

    Time No Place offered Impose the privilege of premiering a song of our choosing from Coyote Clean Up's second record of 2012, Magma Mondays. No pressure from publicists, no wooing us towards a particular track, just indulge in the record and take our pick - a rare privilege that led to much diress. While selecting a track to discuss from a record that pleases us greatly, front to back, proved difficult, there'...

  • (Mixtape) Songs for getting through a bad month. MP3

    Blustery winds and damning skies loomed over the city. Public transportation shut down in early preparation of Sandy, the angry-mother-of-a-sea-monster tearing along the eastern seaboard. John Rambo, the DJ, band manager of Total Slacker, and booker for Brooklyn’s Cheap Storage, is mysteriously covered head to toe in glitter by some unexplained accident from the previous night, and looking quite pensive. A mis...

    Recent Anticon signee and WEDIDIT Collective member, D33J thrives in the dark arts of sound.

  • (Debut) Jeffrey Lewis, "The Chelsea Hotel Oral Sex Song" MP3

    In order to tell you about Jeffrey Lewis, I must first admit I'm not one of his quiet super fans. Mr. Lewis is a fringe artist for me, one that operates in the blurry wash of my peripherals. The name is significant. He wrote a Friends With Benefits editorial for us once and it was a big deal, so I was told. I knew the song-writing style was mercurial, akin to Moldy Peaches. It took a free vinyl copy of Lewis'...

    When I was 17 it was Beat Junkies mixtapes that educated my Ohio-raised ass on the West Coast underground beyond Jurassic 5's "Jayou" from Lyricist Lounge Vol.1 and Dilated Peoples' "Work The Angles" single on ABB. In fact, I picked up the The World Famous Beat Junkies Vol.2 for "Work The Angles", but it was cuts like "Three Card Molly" (with Xzibit, Ras Kass, and Saafi...

  • (Newish) Absolutely Free live up to their name MP3

    Absolutely Free might be a reference to Frank Zappa's second album, or it might be a reference to the feeling of starting anew. Comprised of four members of Impose alum DD/MM/YYY—essentially the whole crew minus guitarist/singer Tomas Del Balso—some insider knowledge would lead us to believe this is more about a new start than it is a new band. Luckily it all plays out stoically on their first singl...

  • (The Future) An Azizi Gibson/Flying Lotus record must happen MP3

    Azizi Gibson has been following FlyLo on tour, bigging up the Brainfeeder label head in his free time on Twitter and Instagram, and spinning Until The Quiet Comes like it's not just his favorite record because his boss made it. We think he deserves a proper full length by now. So as we look to the future we can say with the utmost certainty that an Azizi Gibson record produced entirely by Flying Lotus should happ...
