Indie rock court jester Mac DeMarco held an impromptu barbecue in Brooklyn last month, and beforehand, he spent four days recording Some Other Ones, an 8-track set of woozy, sun-warped instrumentals to soundtrack the event.

AFX (Aphex Twin) – “oberheim blacet1b”

By Caitlin White / July 31, 2015 - 4:02 pm

Aphex Twin was infamously quiet for 13 years before releasing new album Syro last year, followed by enough random tracks to make new music from Richard D. James barely a surprising thing anymore. But today, BBC had the world premiere of James’ first track off his new EP Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008). The EP i… More »

Kill J – “Propaganda”

By Caitlin White / July 31, 2015 - 3:18 pm

Copenhagen’s fiercest drone-pop mercenary Kill J is back with a new track. “Propaganda” is a bombastic, fangs-bared snarl at sexism twisted into a glassy, sinuous groove. Take everything you know about Scandinavian pop and dip it in darkroom chemicals; Kill J is the monochrome film negative that emerges. “You should be more like those girl… More »

Tory Lanez – “Say It”

By Caitlin White / July 31, 2015 - 12:11 pm

Toronoto rapper and producer Tory Lanez’s 2014 mixtape Lost Cause helped put him on the map in more ways than one. Most importantly at this point, it caught the ear wunderkind super-producer Benny Blanco, who signed Lanez to Interscope via his own Mad Love imprint. The two are currently working on Lanez’s debut album, but… More »

By James Rettig / July 31, 2015 - 11:21 am

We’ve pretty much already heard every track from Mac DeMarco’s upcoming new mini-album, Another One, whether because he’s already officially put out over half of the eight songs featured, or because it’s been “out there” for a long while.

Gangrene – “Reversals”

By Tom Breihan / July 31, 2015 - 10:10 am

Gangrene is the duo of Alchemist and Oh No, two veteran West Coast underground rapper/producers. They’ve got vastly different resumes, but they work well together, slapping together a janky and psychedelic form of rap music that lurches as much as it slaps.

Carly Rae Jepsen – “Warm Blood”

By James Rettig / July 31, 2015 - 9:53 am

Here it is: “Warm Blood.” Say what you want about the first four E•MO•TION singles, but Carly Rae Jepsen’s latest is indisputable, unfuckwithable pop genius. On my first run-through of the album — which was only a little over a month ago, something that’s insane to think about compared to how many times I’ve played… More »
