March in Music, Don’t Refuse It
Summer is here. Turn the volume up up up.
Your Old Droog – What Happened To Fire?
Bars, bars, bars hittin’ hard hard hard. Doesn’t hurt to have the major chops of Black Milk, !llmind and Statik Selektah on the desk either. Quite accurately tagged “outsider music” i.e. you probably won’t be obsessing over this if the new Kendrick joint is the greatest shit you’ve heard lately.
Oh No & TriState – 3 Dimensional Prescriptions
Oh No is back with a fucking doozy, with TriState on the assist. Essential listening from front to back. You won’t regret it.
fly anakin & koncept jack$on – Chapel Drive
BigFat put me onto this on the drive from Bandra to Sewri over the weekend. Been hooked ever since. Best $5 I spent all month.
Locust Leaves – A Subtler Kind Of Light
Voidhanger’s catalogue feeds directly into my thrashy, proggy Slayer/Sepultura/sludge/doom cravings. A Subtler Kind Of Light dropped last week and its combination of new and old hit the kind of spot I didn’t know existed. Can’t tell whether I’ll hate this record by the end of the year or not but I love each of these four tracks equally; right now though, this is the one.
Strategy – The Infinity File
Sort of falls between ambient and noise and glitch music with very little in way of beats. The kind of record you let wash over you; meditative almost. Ends with about 11 minutes of this.
Blonde Redhead – 3 ‘O Clock
Been a while, eh? This is quite addictive, especially on those rare days I’m not in the mood for anything heavy.
Depositos Noturnos Vol. 1 – Meia Vida
VA album shining a light on some fantastic Brazilian talent across industrial electronics, acid and dangerous club music. Not for the faint-hearted or and especially not for the technofuckbois who prostrate themselves in front of Geigling’s discogs page. Be gone you twats.
Teengirl Fantasy – 8AM
Worth it for this track alone and it doesn’t get more 8AM than this. If you never knew before, now you do. Eat it up, hipsters.
