Video: Pete Nolan – “Sound of Bees”

June 17, 2015

Video: Pete Nolan – “Sound of Bees” After countless releases with Magik Markers and Spectre Folk, guitarist Pete Nolan is finally putting out a solo record under his own name. The first transmission from his debut album, Easy, “Sound of Bees” has a simplistic vocal melody and primitive, to-the-point drumming reminiscent of Woods (who... 

Video Premiere: Gel Set – “Ether Or”

June 16, 2015

Video Premiere: Gel Set – “Ether Or” On Human Salad, Gel Set’s debut LP, nothing is quite as it seems. From the shapeshifting sonics to the vacillating emotional thread, Laura Callier’s narrative is a skewed and affected arc that charms as much as it does unsettles, making for one of the more addicting and disarming listens... 

Video Premiere: Night Court – “Night Court”

June 15, 2015

Video Premiere: Night Court – “Night Court” Not Not Fun’s emphasis on imagined sonic worlds and soundtracks for unmade films has always been a strong facet of the label’s charm. Be it Umberto, Xander Harris and Dylan Ettinger’s early output with NNF, or Sand Circles’ fairly recent cassette, the imprint never shies away... 

Video: Kevin Greenspon – “Happiness Pt. 2”

June 10, 2015

Video: Kevin Greenspon – “Happiness Pt. 2” Earlier this month Los Angeles-“based” Kevin Greenspon — I use quotes there because I and many others know him best as an industrious tour-dweller — unveiled his meticulous and self-conscious To Leave a Mark cassette/CD-R, less than two weeks before kicking off a mammoth tour... 

Video: Gashrat – “I Decided”

June 8, 2015

Video: Gashrat – “I Decided” Hailing from the hallowed, incredibly fertile musical soil of Montreal, Gashrat may be the best rock band around. The four piece makes a sort of warehouse- and/or basement-ready scuzz that is brutally transcendent, beautifully primordial, and elegantly dissonant. But while Downs is due out this week... 

Video Premiere: Sagan Youth – “Surface”

June 4, 2015

Video Premiere: Sagan Youth – “Surface” Carrboro, NC analog synth duo Sagan Youth finally followed up their older releases (and a more recent mini-EP for Silber Media) with a new concept album on Break World, titled CELA; an old-fashioned sci-fi burner focused on Saturn’s sixth moon, Enceladus. Discovered by your friend and mine... 

Video Premiere: Last Daze – “Quantuum Hamiltonian Chaos Crystal”

June 2, 2015

Video Premiere: Last Daze – “Quantuum Hamiltonian Chaos Crystal” Back in January, Port Vandelay released a handful of cassettes by Uaxyacac (who we adored quite a bit when first hearing the project), Paranerd  and Oxygenfad (a split, mind you), and a curious and massive double-cassette by Last Daze. Spread out across “two cassettes, 132 meters of magnetic...
