Music Review: 9T Antiope – Nocebo

9T Antiope Nocebo [PTP; 2019] Rating: 4/5 REMS, the debut solo album by Nima Aghiani (one half of 9T Antiope with Sara Bigdeli Shamloo), still haunts me. It lingers and still I shudder, not because its onslaught of power noise is especially frightening on its...

Music Review: Nate Wooley – Columbia Icefield

Nate Wooley Columbia Icefield [Northern Spy; 2019] Rating: 3.5/5 Save for trucks full of afternoon tourists or the odd climber, the Columbia Icefield is some hundred-thousand miles into the Rockies and 125 square miles of nothing. Like a post-12 Monkeys...

Music Review: Boy Harsher – Careful

Boy Harsher Careful [Nude Club; 2019] Rating: 4/5 “The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.” We may still watch television, but who watches a television? Who today knows static, and where could consumption be...

Music Review: Silk Road Assassins – State Of Ruin

Silk Road Assassins State Of Ruin [Planet Mu; 2019] Rating: 2.5/5 If sound is a story about what happened to itself, then State of Ruin is a coyote sucking the pheromone-marrow from a fallen cyborg. Its rhythms are like muscle-spasms, its melodies like...

Watch: Forest Management – “Blue Leaves”

Passageways, John Daniel’s newest record as Forest Management (out March 22 on the superb Whited Sepulchre), is an “ode to Daniel’s childhood home — a secluded apartment complex in Cleveland that his parents managed.” My own childhood home had some fun passageways: a...

Music Review: SPELLLING – Mazy Fly

SPELLLING Mazy Fly [Sacred Bones; 2019] Rating: 4/5 At the beginning of the second verse of “Hard to Please (Reprise),” a sultry psych-R&B number from SPELLLING’s latest album Mazy Fly, the Bay Area experimentalist softly croons, “I...

Introducing Pop Punk Act: Halogens

My New Year’s resolution for 2019 was to have more diverse playlists. I’ll admit it, I get hyper fixated on a band or song and listen to them over and over. On my quest to spend more time listening to new music, I discovered the Halogens and...

Music Review: Croatian Amor – Isa

Croatian Amor Isa [Posh Isolation; 2019] Rating: 3/5 (whose end of the world is the end of the world?) (whose ending of the world is the ending of the world?) (whose apocalypse is the apocalypse?) (who survives but is not considered to have survived?) –...

♫ Listen: Tom Mudd – Brass Cultures

Brass Cultures finds Tom Mudd at work on algorithmic brass models. Various tubes, valves, and slides of the instrument group simulated. Likewise the playability, even down to subtle variations in lip pressure. A double simulation really, with the winding maze-works of...

Music Review: Wizard Apprentice – I Am Invisible

Wizard Apprentice I Am Invisible [Ratskin; 2018] Rating: 4/5 Wizard Apprentice’s main act toward expression is unpacking: picking their self open, laying their self bare and exploring the remains. For that reason, it’s hard to say much about...

Music Review: Ariana Grande – thank u, next

Ariana Grande thank u, next [Republic; 2019] Rating: 4.5/5 I hope you find love. Don’t let that be too much to ask. “Why can’t you imagine a world like that?” Not love like reductive metaphor, no string of useless monogamies. Not...

Music Review: Illiterate Light – Sweet Beast

Illiterate Light Sweet Beast [Self-Released; 2019] Rating: 3/5 I don’t begrudge any band for aggrandizing their happiness, especially not a group as optimistic as Illiterate Light, who can wrap a decently upbeat melody around downer lyrics like:...

♫ Listen: Cat Temper – Purring for Vengeance

This isn’t something I feel I should be apologizing for. I was just talking to my friend about the new Jah Division album, and I asked him, are they as dumb as they sound, or are they worth the listen? His answer: yes and yes. That’s my...

Music Review: Lee Gamble – In a Paraventral Scale

Lee Gamble In a Paraventral Scale [Hyperdub; 2019] Rating: 3/5 Cities. New cities. Cities that aren’t even on this earth yet. The kind that Lee Gamble, on In a Paraventral Scale, gives a language to. Cities like shrines shining, where stars spill their...
