Listen Up

From classic hip-hop to a reissue and a remix in our musical round-up this week Tertia May: In My Head Premiering on Wonderland, Tertia May’s “In My Head” is a dreamy, dusky approach to jazz—complete with polished, hip-hop-influenced production from Subculture.

Stereolab: French Disco [Early Version Mix]

Avant-pop was pioneered by Stereolab—the London-based, English/French quartet that rose to epic heights in the ’90s.

Seven albums will return in limited edition vinyl and CD iterations, each with a hand-numbered strip from the original master-tapes.

Buke and Gase Continue their Genre-Defying Education on 'Scholars'

It's often said that there are only two types of art—good and bad—and that rings especially true for music that more or less defies categorization. Such is the case with Buke and Gase, a New York duo comprised of Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez who've been labeled as indie rock, "steampunk art-folk", and math rock, among other things. However, their latest LP, Scholars, most curiously and creatively exemplifies how they "make pop music in the most insane way possible". Filled with atypical instr...

Sharlene Teo's Playlist for Her Novel "Ponti"

Previous contributors include Jesmyn Ward, Lauren Groff, Bret Easton Ellis, Celeste Ng, T.C. Boyle, Dana Spiotta, Amy Bloom, Aimee Bender, Heidi Julavits, Hari Kunzru, and many others. Sharlene Teo's novel Ponti is a stunning debut, a coming-of-age story that deftly explores the relationships of three women. The Guardian wrote of the book: "At once a subtle crit...

Lætitia Sadier has released a statement regarding a tweet she sent earlier this year in support of right wing "intellectual" Jordan Peterson.

Exploring a journey from Bengali heritage to electronic invention

Can electronic music tell a story about who we are? Debashis Sinha talks about his LP for Establishment, The White Dog, and how everything from Toronto noodle bowls to Bengali field recordings got involved. The Canadian artist has a unique knack for melding live percussion techniques and electro-acoustic sound with digital manipulation, and in The White Dog, he dives deep into his own Bengali heritage. Just don’t think of “world music.” What emerges is deeply his and composed in a way that’s e...

Irish cult indie band Microdisney reforming for first shows in 30 years

Irish group Microdisney were only together for a few years in the mid-1980s, but for a time were critical darlings with their mix of biting lyrics (courtesy Cathal Coughlan) and smooth, shimmering music (via Sean O'Hagan) and released a few cult classic records, including their 1983 debut Everything's Fantastic and 1985's The Clock Comes Down the Stairs which reached #1 on the UK indie charts. When the band split up, Coughlan formed The Fatima Mansions (who scored a few UK hits in the early '90s...

The Case for Why Kraftwerk May Be the Most Influential Band Since the Beatles

They are performance artists of self-parody—four stiff Teutonic robots (sometimes played by actual robots), standing behind drum machines and sequencers, pushing buttons and singing things like “Wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn” and “it’s more fun to compute.” As if the Beach Boys had been reimagined from broken memory by German androids thousands of years in the future. Onstage, they match or exceed the commitment of later musical-theatrical acts they inspired like the Blue Man...

Dots And Loops Turns 20

If the first word Dots And Loops calls to mind is "plasticine," the second is "yielding." That these two concepts somehow fail to contradict one another is among the continuing mysteries about Stereolab's fifth LP, which turns 20 today. There had always been a magisterial pomp and fanciful, irradiated sweep to the London-based group, a … More »

Echo Park Rising, Day 3: Crazed crowds for the Buttertones, Surf Curse

[See image gallery at] Second of three posts on Saturday’s Echo Park Rising Things got unhinged a couple times at Saturday’s sixth annual Echo Park Rising. And who knew the Buttertones could inspire such madness? As the Buttertones played their Liberty Stage set, the crowd surge broke the metal barricade between the fans and the photographers’ area, sending it tumbling onto a couple of people working the pit.
