Old Apparatus – “Compendium (Live)”

May 30, 2013

Old Apparatus – “Compendium (Live)” Live electronic and instrumental blends such as Old Apparatus playing here inspires a mucho realistic sense of soundtrack in my mind. Gad DAMN this “Compendium (Live)” is deep and heavy. My mind would crack had I actually seen this live. Glad someone there popped they’s camera. There’s... 

Premiere: IKEBANA – “Alone”

May 24, 2013

Premiere: IKEBANA – “Alone” The Japanese word “Ikebana” refers typically to the minimalist art of flower arranging. It’s considered a form of artistic expression, but still has certain rules dictating its beauty. Perhaps it’s in this way that an art of floral display and a mysterious Japanese duo are more... 

Dirty Beaches – “Casino Lisboa”

May 23, 2013

Dirty Beaches – “Casino Lisboa” Smash cut to: waking up the next day and forgetting what city you’re in, when you came, and what language is being spoken. Take the elevator to the last button you can press and you enter the “Casino Lisboa”. From the front window you see a scattered Dirty Beaches and two women fighting.... 

Dylan Ettinger – “The Pale Mare”

May 21, 2013

Dylan Ettinger – “The Pale Mare” One of my favorite synth lords, Dylan Ettinger, just sent over this stunning TACHYONS+-directed video video for “The Pale Mare”, from the recent split single with Goldendust on DKA Records. If you’re not yet hip to DKA, don’t sweat it. This beautiful 7″ is the first release... 

Poisonous Relationship – “Men’s Feelings”

May 21, 2013

Poisonous Relationship – “Men’s Feelings” Ecstasy has been an underdog of sorts for the dance scene over the past few years. Having mostly issued EPs and 12-inches of refined, modern House sounds by the likes of The Miracles Club and C.L.A.W.S. as well as forward-thinking experimental grooves by Operative and Temples, the humble label just... 

Bill Baird – “Ride the Toxic Wave”

May 20, 2013

Bill Baird – “Ride the Toxic Wave” I dig the vocal sound on this here “Ride the Toxic Wave” by Bill Baird. Personally, I’m not one for lyrics. Most of the time I don’t like people telling me what to think, but I can dig on the sound of vocals as part of the melody, which really feels it in “Ride the Toxic... 

Rick Ross & Birdman – “The H (PSA)”

May 17, 2013

Rick Ross & Birdman – “The H (PSA)” FACTmag dropped this sack on me earlier today and I HAD to share, cause if I got it everybody got it. The hype is real: Rick Ross & Birdman are releasing a lost album they made back in 2008, and Khaled is hosting it. We The Best! Maybach Music! Young Money Cash Money Billionaires! This ain’t... 

Young Fathers – “I Heard”

May 16, 2013

Young Fathers – “I Heard” Daaaaamn, shit gettin’ REAL on Decoder with this Young Fathers‘ track “I Heard”. It’s weird, this song reminds me of a socially awkward person at work. The kinda person who sits a desk away from you, but only says, “Good morning, Emery,” via e-mail. Does the... 

18+ Live in Amsterdam

May 16, 2013

18+ Live in Amsterdam Thanks for the super short post from our pal C Monster over at Tiny Mix Tapes… Coming down off they’s European tease of a tour (for America, that is), 18+ really exists! Ok-ok, there’s been a real video before, but so-what/so-what? He is hiding, pretty much; and this here “live... 

Master Musicians of Bukkake – “Gnomi”

May 15, 2013

Master Musicians of Bukkake – “Gnomi” Seattle’s filth-referencing psych ethnographers Master Musicians of Bukkake return in June with their first album since 2011’s Totem Three. Far West, which will be released by Important Records on June 10th, marks a turning point of sorts for the collective, who have added itchy welts of...

Today they’ve hit us with the premiere for this brilliantly fun video for “Crusher”, directed by Andrea Scary, bka Snow Wite. The video touches heavily on the absurd while holding... 

Kendrick Lamar – “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” [Director’s Cut]

May 14, 2013

Kendrick Lamar – “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” [Director’s Cut] One of my favorite aspects of Kendrick Lamar‘s good kid, m.A.A.d city is the flawless use of skits throughout the album. I’ve always enjoyed skits on rap albums, and I feel they allow us to often see a more playful side of rappers that we rarely get otherwise. Mike Mihail and The Lil Homies... 

Thunderbird Gerard – “T.R.O.U.B.L.E.”

May 14, 2013

Thunderbird Gerard – “T.R.O.U.B.L.E.” Okay. Yeah, this track “T.R.O.U.B.L.E.” is real fresh, kinda. I mean, the lyrics are a little cheesy, but I can cheese, yo! Just saying, the beat, the vocals, the backing vocals, etc…. it all flows well together. Thunderbird Gerard is certainly getting some ganders cause of this new work too.... 

Young Smoke – “Suspicious Planet”

May 13, 2013

Young Smoke – “Suspicious Planet” So, my Grams if fucking awesome. Other than her first name being Meta, she has a half dozen subscriptions to nature and space magazines, and donates to a place that sent her an Earth blanket for free, which she gifted to me, that I’m using at work right now, cause it’s as cold as my boss’... 

Lau Nau – “Valolle”

May 13, 2013

Lau Nau – “Valolle” 19-second mark. THERE-THERE. That’s the thesis/motif/dimension. And this video is the recording of how Lau Nau found “Valolle” and became trapped in the diamond-universe, where color is based on white and mist is a thick density of weight. Right? Buuut it seems like she’s in... 

Èlg – “Notringo Indigo”

May 10, 2013

Èlg – “Notringo Indigo” Èlg is responsible for one of the most criminally underlooked albums of 2012 in Mil Pluton (I didn’t even hear the damn thing until January of this year and it would sit in my top 10 retroactively) and he’s ready to break hearts and confuse everyone with its brilliant follow-up, La Chimie.... 

Premiere: Great Valley – “Bleacher Honey”

May 9, 2013

Premiere: Great Valley – “Bleacher Honey” Brattleboro pop mega-weirdos Great Valley recently finished up their third full-length LP, Continental Lunch, for Feeding Tube Records. The band draws influences from the likes of the B-52s, campy powerpop, and of course the crew of weirdo friends that keep them just at the brink of sanity. Today GV... 

Premiere: Tiger Stripe – “Liquid Crystal”

May 8, 2013

Premiere: Tiger Stripe – “Liquid Crystal” The weight of Wednesday bugs everyone out. And foggy, misty days as these, one can only look to the “Liquid Crystal” horizon in two different ways. One can see it as a sign of drear; a mid-week gloom that clouts not only one’s brain cells, but the entire functioning of their body.... 

Love Cop – “Hunger 4 Yr Heart”

May 7, 2013

Love Cop – “Hunger 4 Yr Heart” This new video from Love Cop features the band and friends hanging around, doing things people do when they hang around; such as playing WrestleMania 2000 on N64, smoking weed, and cooking things on a grill. All of this soundtracks a moody track titled “Hunger 4 Yr Heart” in a nostalgia-inducing... 

Zachg – “Mountain Ain’t Heavy”

May 7, 2013

Zachg – “Mountain Ain’t Heavy” Here’s a fun new video for Zachg‘s  “Mountain Ain’t Heavy”. The video features some pretty heady green screen work, with Zachg’s face and hair transposed over a variety of animations from Alex Soto. While the clip is pretty short, there’s a promise of more moving...
