  • DJ Krush & Toshinori Kondo – Ki-Oku (1996)

    Dave Wesley, April 16th 2018

    DJ Krush’s minimal instrumental hip hop intertwined with Toshinori Kondo‘s Kind Of Blue lonely trumpet puts me deep inside a Cowboy Bebop episode.  I had this on serious repeat when I so joyfully owned a vintage 1984 Porsche 928S in the early 2000s.  Serious driving music for serious driving (or chilling out).  The lo-fi hip […]

    • Paper Dollhouse – The Sky Looks Different Here

      Dave Wesley, March 28th 2018

      I’ve been a fan of Paper Dollhouse before the tide of publicity started rolling their way.   I think one of the band members works at The Wire, so their press is naturally laced with intellectual cool and it looks like they will be playing some gigs that feature a juice bar and knitting classes. Paper […]

      • New Deadbeat – You Gonna Like (These) Snakes

        Dave Wesley, March 3rd 2018

        If you like Ricardo Villalobos’ deconstructed groove production, you “gonna like (these new) snakes” from dub techno pioneer Deadbeat. Remember Ricardo’s Fabric mix of original tracks and the specific track with the Taiko drums combined with a rambling nightclub era Liza Minnelli?  (At least I think it was Liza Minnelli.)  Berlin is obviously importing water from […]

          • Giulio Aldinucci: Borders and Ruins

            Joel Hanson, January 24th 2018

            Growing up in a Protestant household in the mid-80s, I was exposed to the folksy remake of Christianity, which always struck me—historical inaccuracies and problematic dogma aside—as missing the point of religious experience. The main problem was the music; the inability of those tired hymns, and folk-rock ballads, to take me anywhere close to the […]

                • Leafar Legov – Family

                  Adas Butler, January 6th 2018

                  “Giegling can be described as a feeling, where the warmth of nostalgia is brought to vivid life and the instinctive pleasure of the dance is tempered with an existential inquisitiveness.” Family, the new record from Leafar Legov on the Giegling label, is fantastically deep, warm and varied; the perfect antidote to anyone who still says […]

                    Adas Butler, January 5th 2018

                    “Are the days of winter sunshine just as sad for you, too? When it is misty, in the evenings, and I am out walking by myself, it seems to me that the rain is falling through my heart and causing it to crumble into ruins.” ― Flaubert Let’s embrace winter. It’s not all the bareness […]

                      Franklin Streck, January 2nd 2018

                      So a Swede, a Finn, and an American walk into a bar…this was the other night in a very small town in Denmark called Viborg, located in a farm-covered area called Jutland (the peninsula part of Denmark that’s connected to Germany). We’re here for work, and after having dinner decided to go to a dive […]
