Harman is redesigning its in-car audio systems specifically for electric vehicles

I bet you didn’t know this but car stereos can often be power guzzlers. A decent car audio setup can pull anywhere from 200 to 500 watts RMS of power depending on the number of speaker units, the size of the car, and the bass module. That isn’t really much of a concern when you’ve got a fuel-powered automobile but in an electric vehicle, any sort of efficiency can go a long way in making a car perform better. Harman (which got acquired by Samsung in late 2016) is looking to redesign its audio ...

Stream: The Garden, ‘Clench to Stay Awake’

Iconoclastic brother duo the Garden have reached into their sonic toolshed of sharp, rusty objects on the new song “Clench to Stay Awake.” It’s an abrasion waiting to happen — as well as the lead track on twins Wyatt and Fletcher Shears’ fourth album, “Kiss My Super Bowl Ring,” coming out March 13 via Epitaph Records. The song, which the duo says is based on their mysterious health issues over the years, sandwiches a solid minute of punk fury in between a deadpan one-minute intro and equally imp...
