Stream: Kyle Landstra – ‘Unshared Properties, Vol. 1’

September 24, 2015

Stream: Kyle Landstra – ‘Unshared Properties, Vol. 1’ My excitement over a new Kyle Landstra release was briefly threatened by my mollycoddled millennial attention span: “four fucking tapes?

Diego’s 2014 “Year In Drone” Podcast

February 2, 2015

Diego’s 2014 “Year In Drone” Podcast 2014 seemed to drag on and on and on, like a bad sitcom marathon you can’t stop watching because you have nothing better to do.

Ekin Fil – Wind is Near

January 21, 2015

August 9, 2014

Week in Review #31 Plenty to catch up on this week, including news that French experimental producer High Wolf would be reissuing his Straight Cassette recordings, a “weird hip-hop” outing under his Black Zone Myth Chant moniker; an incredibly fun plod through acidic insanity.
