♫ Listen: Pontiac Streator & Ulla Straus – Chat

Even though I’ve talked to you in my room, we’ve only chatted. The waves gets all tangled between your phone and mine, or your computer and mine, or we glitch and I can’t hear you anymore. Everything’s a bit behind, trailing off into echoes and delays that bounce off...

♫ Listen: John Dope – “Raw.”

Why is it that tracks with dusty, lithe piano loops always seem to pair so well alongside crispy compressed drums? Suppose it’s in the same realm as why ripe mangoes always taste so heavenly? Anyway, John Dope picked up some mangoes from the market, washed and cut ‘em...

Music Review: GAS – Rausch

GAS Rausch [Kompakt; 2018] Rating: 4/5 “A screaming comes across the sky. It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.” — Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow (1973) a screaming comes across the forest: quiet whistles bellow deepening the fog, seep...

♫ Listen: Lil Yachty & Valee – “Wombo”

“Beat weird as hell” —YouTube comment by user scure Lordy me, this beat!!! Talk about a lush background, maybe TOO lush for some rappers. Not for Boat & Valee though. Fearless chaps, those two. You already know Lil Yachty as having an affinity for left-field hip-hop...

♫ Listen: Molly Tigre – Molly Tigre

It’s a kneejerk reaction now — oh yeah, new tape from Very Special Recordings in the mail? Nice! Gotta be a good one. And it is — this one I mean, the newly-flung-at-us self-titled meat slab from Molly Tigre, a New York “supergroup” (yeah, I said it) whose press...

Music Review: Kayla Guthrie – Falling Star

Kayla Guthrie Falling Star [Wild Flesh; 2018] Rating: 4/5 I discovered Kayla Guthrie’s music a few years ago through the recommendation of multidisciplinary artist Eve Essex, someone I deeply respect due to her seemingly limitless range of projects and abilities,...

Premiere: Lily Konigsberg – “7 smile”

Okay, if I’m remembering it right, and this is how my high school chem teacher told it sophomore year, the joke has it that Heisenberg is driving down the freeway. He has no destination, no trepidation. Foot on the pedal, mind on the asphalt, he’s in it for the ride....

Amnesia Scanner announce debut album Another Life on PAN

Since 2014, we here at TMT have been patiently awaiting the first major statement from the cryptorave mediators/technological fetishists known as Amnesia Scanner. Of course, that didn’t stop us from including the Berlin-based duo’s music on a bunch of year-end lists,...

Premiere: Paul Page – “Au-We, Wahine”

There’s no better soundtrack to a unusually sweltering evening in L.A. than good ol’ exotica, am I right? Or maybe it’s just me: having moved here from Poland, I still exotify the place left and right. There’s no denying, however, that the tiki bar, the...

Premiere: EEL TANK – “MAMIYA”

I would like the night to last longer. I would like that kind of grey darkness to plug itself into my chest. I would like to turn out all the lights of my mind and descend somewhere small to crowd myself with indiscernibly moving bodies and have my own limbs alight...

Music Review: Forma – Semblance

Forma Semblance [Kranky; 2018] Rating: 3/5 Semblance can mean resemblance: “Semblance bears some semblance to the recent crop of 80s synth revivalists.” In Merriam-Webster, this is definition #4, “actual or apparent resemblance.” Oddly, semblance can also mean the...

♫ Listen: 회사AUTO – Informatique Métaphysique

The new 회사AUTO release Informatique Métaphysique delivers like a vaporwave mixtape masterpiece. An all-in-one slip in slide on the glide synths composed, all original, dawning another nu-age of spicy. Warm spicy. Even the Informatique Métaphysique solo tracks rip in...

Watch: Armand Hammer – “Dettol”

Yesterday, at the health food spot in my neighborhood, the guy behind the counter making my tuna ceviche wrap complimented me on my shirt. I told him it was an album cover, correctly assuminng he’d think it was a metal band. When he asked as much, I told him, no, it’s...
