  • Underground Find – Basement Revolver

    Maxine Wesley, September 6th 2017

    Although Basement Revolver doesn’t have a wide range of songs released, they’re definitely a band that has huge potential and deserves more recognition than they’re currently getting. The dreamy female vocals combined with the slow tempo instrumental make for incredibly easy listening, especially if you’re a fan of artists like Angel Olsen or other female-led […]

    • Cool Find – The Blurry Underground Pop of Ummagma

      Dave Wesley, August 23rd 2017

      Ummagma is a blurry pop band in the absolute best sense of that description.  I recently discovered a bunch of their unique tracks and videos on YouTube.   My penchant for intentionally lo-fi production finds me heavily rotating the track Live And Let Die. Their style varies a bit across releases, but it firmly remains […]

      • Dif Juz: Time Clock Turn Back

        Joel Hanson, July 23rd 2017

        In a YouTube video entitled Finding Dif Juz, Bella Union co-founder and ex-Cocteau Twins bassist Simon Raymonde unearths two rare 12-inch singles by the early 80’s instrumental group Dif Juz and claims that the origins of post-rock are found in the grooves of these low-fi recordings. While that may be true, as evidenced by the […]

          • Repost – Steve Kilbey Talks New Kilbey Kennedy Album Glow and Fade, The Church and More

            Wesley Mayhem, June 6th 2017

            This is a cool interview with Steve Kilbey on the Smells Like Infinite Sadness blog.   If you know me, you know that I’m a major fan of The Church.  I hadn’t heard of Steve’s side project Kilbey Kennedy.   When I searched Spotify, I discovered a ton of Kilbey Kennedy music, which I’ve quickly playlisted […]

            • Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever – French Press

              Wesley Mayhem, June 1st 2017

              When Greg Dulli recommends a release, guys like me listen.  The Rolling Blackouts (now on SubPop) are a new discovery, thanks to a Dulli tweet.  This single reminds me of music I love from the fertile 80s.  I’m paying it forward. Wesley Mayhem – Etter, MN

              • The KVB – Fixation / White Walls

                Adas Butler,

                A little bit nasty, a little bit ecstatic, a little bit bedroom and a little bit demented dancefloor – here’s another interesting slab from The KVB. Psychedelic moments and reflective space all in a not-too-difficult package – worth trying especially if you’re fans of other projects of their label, Invada, or the label’s founder, Portishead’s […]

                • Northern Valentine – Born Yesterday

                  Dave Wesley, March 30th 2017

                  I discovered this amazing track during a Soma Drone Zone infused meditation session, this morning.  It is was compelling enough to break through my theta trance that I interrupted the meditation to check the track that was streaming.   Born Yesterday is the perfect combination of organic and electronic drone.  It sounds great detuned to […]
