This week saw the release of garage rocker Mikal Cronin’s excellent second solo album, MCII. One track that isn’t on that album is the fuzz-drenched “Better Man.” And that’s because Cronin donated it to the latest release by Adult Swim. Aptly titled Garage Swim, the free 15-track comp collects previously unreleased songs from all of [...]

I’ve learned that the only thing to expect from L.A. experimentalist James Ferraro is the unexpected. Dude has been perplexing fans for years now, hopping between hypnogogic pop, psych, synth music, hip-hop, and electronic under various pseudonyms, most recently BEBETUNE$. For his latest project, in which he’s used his most common moniker, Ferraro has cranked [...]

This list could have been in the hundreds, thousands even. And seeing as that would take way too long to compile (it is only a 40-hour work week), we narrowed it down to some personal favourites. No, not Damian’s favourites. Forget that guy. Cam made these picks (Hi!). Valentine’s Day seems like a very indie-rock-friendly [...]

There isn’t a whole lot to know about Giraffage other than it’s a guy from San Francisco named Charlie Yin who makes “sample-based pop.” But the most important tidbit is that he dropped his brand new mixtape, Needs, today for Alpha Pup Records. The label describes it as “churning basslines, screwed down vocals, smooth RnB [...]

Dayve Hawk of Memory Tapes doesn’t like to keep much to himself. There are any number of mixtapes, remixes and bonus material strewn across the internet. Doing a little fall cleaning, Hawk has purged what he calls “all MT b-sides, unreleased tracks, bits from ‘Black Reel’, ‘Slaughtered’ and ‘Grace/Confusion’ as well as a couple recent [...]

The Death Waltz Recording Company is a relatively new label founded by Spencer Hickman, the man behind Rough Trade’s flagship store in East London. Specializing in giving new life to hard-to-find horror soundtracks, in the past few months alone he’s reissued John Carpenter classics like the second and third installments of Halloween, Prince of Darkness [...]

Looks like we spoke too soon. Minutes after posting our Halloween mix round-up, Atlanta’s shit-disturbing crew Black Lips have cooked up 13 spine-chilling cuts that really expose the seedier, freakier side of everyone’s favourite commercial holiday that isn’t Christmas… or really a holiday.

Every year Halloween brings the inevitable: candy, costumes, Jack O’Lanterns and elaborate lawn displays by some over and underzealous neighbours. It’s also a time for a surplus of Halloween mixes that hit and miss the point. This week Diplo completely dropped the ball with his, opting for more of a Diplo DJ set, while the [...]

Diplo stopped by BBC1xtra this week and dropped a three-hour Halloween mix. Joined by System D 128, the two sets actually didn’t exactly focus on the spooky season, but more like a true Diplo party with tracks by M.I.A., French Montana, A$AP Rocky, Skrillex, TNGHT, Juicy J, and Major Lazer, of course. However, he did [...]

It appears as though Halloween this year will be a bit of a literal wash out, at least on the East Coast. And so what better way to comfort ourselves from all that impending loss of candy than to use music, the best medicine (sorry laughter, you’re so last year). Besides candy and costumes, Halloween [...]
