  • Web Destination: That Special Record

    Gabi Von Dub, April 18th 2017

    Finding myself suddenly flooded by awesome new and old music – ok great excuse, i´m always like that – i´m a bit puzzled of what to write about at the moment, since i need the writing progress bar to actually progress and deliver you another tip on one of the zillion aural extravaganza available around. It´s […]

    • Anthony Rother – Sex With The Machines

      Gabi Von Dub, April 10th 2017

      Allow me to highlight herr Rother‘s classic “Sex with the Machines”, which was released end of April, 20 years ago, on Kanzleramt.   A defining masterpiece on its own, carefully designed with classic German precision, it purports an intimate “liaison” between the driven spirit of Anthony and his garden of buttons, keys, plugs and cables…  breeding […]

      • Repost – Why is this website mixing ambient music with police scanner audio so intensely gripping?

        Dave Wesley, April 3rd 2017

        When I wake up in the morning and find this kind of stuff on Facebook, it literally makes my day.  This is a re-posted from FACT Mag.   “Youarelistening.to is a site that generates strange, endless sound collages by loading ambient tracks from SoundCloud and blending them with police radio chatter from locations across the […]

        • HTRK – Fascinator – Part Time Punks Session

          Dom Fox, April 1st 2017

          I have developed a healthy fascination with this recording.  This is one of those tracks that, at the very same time, takes me back and forward in time.   I will sleep on a sidewalk outside a ticket vendor to see this live (like I did for The Cars in 1979 where other ticket goers […]

          • NightFlight is Back!

            Dom Fox, February 19th 2017

            NightFlight is back with a Plus subscription and a Roku channel.  I can not overstate the amount of influence that this late night cable television production had on my young life, in the 80s…  an open cultural window to the world from a barren small North Dakota college apartment. The resurrected site and library feature […]

            • Johnny Rotten Show – The Punk and His Music Pt 2. Capital Radio 16th July 1977

              Dom Fox, February 1st 2017

              How cool is this?  If the internet existed for only one reason…  this might very well qualify.

                • C​:​/​NN​/​1

                  Dom Fox, January 26th 2017

                  Chill and interesting music from C​:​/​NN​/​1 who is “An implausible particle and genuine actual human person. Making unpopular music for unpopular people since 2001.”  Their artist alias and Bandcamp tagline make this worth a click and the music is worth the time. C:/NN/1 by Negative Neutron

                  • Dewtone – Super Chilled Streaming Radio and Label

                    Dave Wesley, January 3rd 2017

                    Dustin Morris curates one of the great pleasures in my life…  Dewtone streaming radio.  This station is instant Valium and a connection with hyper-contemporary electronic music currents and music producers across the globe.  It’s free and easy…     Watch the flickering light…  You’re getting very sleepy…

                    • 80s Bristol Glory – Claytown Troupe

                      Dave Wesley, November 28th 2016

                      Bandcamp is such a wonderful thing on so many levels.  My email inbox surprised me with a super cool vintage 80s release on repertoire label Bristol Archive Records, that embodies so much of what I love about that period.  Claytown Troupe previously unknown to this author.  Bordering on Goth but more like the Alarm, vocally…   […]
