  • 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

      • But Darling It’s Hideous EP – CY006

        Adas Butler, May 20th 2017

        Contort Yourself, purveyors of obscure, difficult industrial noise that damn well makes your body move, are on their sixth compilation, and this one is flat-out great. As usual, it’s a mix of old and new, with the standout discovery being Penelope’s Fiance, a Greek producer who shifts uncannily between the unsettling and the sublime. There’s two […]

        • Jesse Osborne-Lanthier – From A Flawed Apex Which Led To The Head

          Wesley Mayhem, May 18th 2017

          This is a rare and fantastic blend of experimental music and techno structures with a striking holism.  Bandcamp showed me that Philip Sherburne purchased these bits and bytes, so I checked it out.  I shot.  I scored. Long live Jesse Osborne-Lanthier. Long live Where To Now? Records, UK. Long live Philip Sherburne. Long live Bandcamp. […]

          • Live Streaming – 24/7 Lofi Hiphop Radio – Beats to Study | Game | Relax

            Dom Fox, April 29th 2017

            Copyright infringement detectorists be damned…  Nothing like some warm tubey lo-fi chill instrumental hip-hop (some calls it trip-hop) to start your European Saturday morning.  No matter if you wake and bake or stim your nodes with the dark bean, this might just get your day off to a good start…  or it might just be […]

            • 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 […]

              • Corroded Trip-Hop – “GEA” WeMe030 by J.K.

                Dave Wesley,

                In the 2000’s, trip-hop was my gateway sonic drug to lo-fi deep dark dub techno and related genres… which have ended up as genre quicksand… engulfing my aural foci ever since. J.K.’s “GEA”…  Wo…  I haven’t heard anything as corroded, dark, jarring and cool since some of the earlier DJ Krush releases (before he went […]

                • 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 […]

                    • 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 […]
