  • 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 […]

                    • Mark Ward – Into the Deep of it All

                      Gabi Von Dub, March 14th 2017

                      It doesn’t matter how much you are a digger, if you substantially dedicate yourself to it, it will payoff with sophisticated and accurate music discoveries,  some with the potential of mining your cosmic depths and roots. Such is a case of recent random discovery, Mark Ward.  Mark is a Sheffield musician with a degree in Fine Arts, “playing joyfully […]
