Mars – Rehearsal Tapes and Alt-Takes NYC 1976-1978

June 28, 2013

Mars – Rehearsal Tapes and Alt-Takes NYC 1976-1978 Though Mars did not ostensibly exist for long as a band, their influence in the New York scene was briefly substantial and their incredible shtick has made them a cult favorite; they played surrealist non-pop with a precocious liberality that to their credit very often cohered into dramatically compelling...

June 26, 2013

Hawaiian Gremlins – “Teenage Ways EP” Imagine three gremlins surfing in Acapulco beach, wearing some animal print shorts and psychedelic multicolor shades. Funny, isn’t it?

Scissor Now! – Not Now, But Right Now!

Stream: Blondes – ‘Swisher’ It’s been a full year since Blondes, the New York freak-kraut duo of  Sam Haar and Zach Steinman, released a self-titled compilation of their earliest 12″ recordings. But while that release merely compiled the pneumatic and mechanical dance movements of a band finding its own sound, Blondes... 

Premiere: Kandodo – “July 28th (edit)”

June 24, 2013

Premiere: Kandodo – “July 28th (edit)” The letter “k” on your computer’s QWERTY keyboard there is only two short strokes away from the letter “h.” Yes, there’s a reason I’m reminding you of this little recognized yet obvious fact about keyboards. It’s because with the title of this new Kandodo...

n u a g e s – “Closer” I discovered n u a g e s a couple of months ago after hearing his track “Forget” while searching for good vibes on Soundcloud — something that, day by day, becomes easier thanks to the global proliferation of producers on the service.
