New Tracks Weekend, October 23-25

A chaotic week gives way to a weekend full of sonic sparkle. First among equals is the worth-waiting-for LP from STAR, Violence Against STAR. Drop the needle somewhere, anywhere, you’ll find a song that makes you smile, makes your pulse race a little. That’s stock in trade for Scott Cortez and co., who meld power […]

Nothing – The Great Dismal

Philadelphia heavy gazers Nothing are back with a new album, in what must be described as an attempt to make 2020 not a complete and total loss. The Great Dismal was conceived when singer and songwriter Dominic Palermo picked up a copy of the New York Times from a newsstand and saw the famous first […]

New Tracks Weekend, September 25-27

What’s on deck for the weekend? So so much. Three albums qualify as headliners for the proceedings, so that qualifies as depth. Kicking off with Tapeworms (pictured above), whose Funtastic album lands somewhere between Stereolab and classic JAMC, with a rollercoaster’s worth of thrilling twists and turns. Sentimiento Mundial, the new LP from Mint Field […]

Video story


The Alisons – Thoughtless

alisonsthoughtless

I can’t even recall how we backed into The Alisons. This credible album spawns too many great and propulsive singles to be ignored as the year ends, as we begin to compile year-end “best of” lists. As we were working on our critics picks, we also backed into this “making of” preview for Thoughtless. And […]
DKFM Promo Video

dkfmpromo

We’re not that weird. Okay, yes we are. Or at least we were. In recompiling the new website for 2019, we were inadvertently reintroduced to some of our classic works. Including this, our first “commercial” promo video from 2014. We’re only slightly embarrassed by it. But it still exists, and we’ll pretend it’s awesome for […]
Be Forest – Atto I

The curtain opens on Knocturne Be Forest do the slow reveal With a puff 0f smoke and a slow curtain pull, Be Forest announce their forthcoming album, Knockturne. The first purchaseable single, “Bengala”, dropped 13 December, so “Atto I” rather serves as the teaser, the mysterious reveal. Knocturne releases February 8th on We Were Never […]
