Film Review: Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton

Read my review of the excellent new Stones Throw documentary here.


Video: Tajh Spikes – “Lesson”

Slowed-down Louisiana hip-hop from this MC I have never heard of before. Glad to make his acquaintance.

Sounds: Ghostface Killah and BADBADNOTGOOD feat. Danny Brown – “Six Degrees”

Sounds: Godflesh – “Ringer”

Justin Broadrick returns with a new EP this June from his beloved industrial-metal Godflesh incarnation.

Sounds: Freeman – “The English and Western Stallion”

Gene Ween is back with another post-Ween release and it’s pretty pretty.

Sounds: Darq E Freaker – “Minger”

Dark-tech-synth-shit from Darq E Freaker.

Video: Die Antwoord – “Pitbull Terrier”

So… Die Antwoord hates Pitbull? New album Donker Mag out 6/3. This video is like a Rob Zombie movie.

Whiskey – Get To Know The Brown Stuff A Little Better

I did an advertorial piece for Deadspin and Gizmodo about Knob Creek bourbon, which you can read here. I like the brown stuff.


Video: Cam’ron and A-Trak – “Dipshits”

But seriously, stop saying “no homo.”

Film: Rye Coalition – The Story of the Hard Luck 5

Who knew there was a documentary about Rye Coalition coming out? And who’s gonna care? You should, this band is excellent.

Sounds: Braid – “Bang”

I loved Braid’s¬†reunion tour for Frame and Canvas, and now a new album is on the way – No Coast, out July 8. Listen to a new song below. Dig Chris’ vocals.

Sounds: Craft Spells – “Komorebi”

Another new one from Craft Spells’ forthcoming album, Nausea, due out June 10.

Video: PAWS – “Owls Talons Clenching My Heart”

My fave Scottish band, with my fave new album.

Sounds: Mr Flash feat. Cities Aviv, Action Bronson, Oh No – “Number 1”

French producer Mr. Flash hooks up with some underground bigwigs.
