Boris Divider and Conquerer

This one’s got a real “end of 2001 (the movie not the year) communicating with extraterrestrials” kind of feel to it.

Get it here.


Austra goes “Home”

A new song by Austra. I like it.

Ambient in Blue: 1969, by Cherry

Some pretty ambient dub/house with some vaguely Durutti Column-esque guitar, recently released on a little label called Blue Tapes.  I’m not quite sure what it has to do with 1969 — it sounds more like 1996, actually — but I’ll let that pass. For more info, or to buy it, go here.

I heard about this one from Cassette Gods, a very handy guide to ultra-obscure cassette releases.

Freak Yourself Out With Soap&Skin [Note: Video contains disturbing images.]

Well, that was an exceedingly creepy 3 minutes and 35 seconds.

Have a Droney Dance Party With Hanetration

Some nice droney stuff with a glitchy beat and a horn.

Here’s the rest of the EP, which you can download for free.

Check out Hanetration’s Bandcamp page for a couple more free EPs.

H/T to Dogs Can Read Your Mind

Acteurs mix up an 80s-style industrial stew

Probably not so good to listen to if you’ve got a pounding headache.

Low Sea, No Evil


This is sort of my favorite song in the world right now. (Note: the worst dancer in the world, like worse than Elaine on Seinfeld, makes an appearance at 1:55.)

Fun fact: The band is not French, but Irish.

This song ain’t bad neither, and this is a real video and everything:

A pair of songs by Gazelle Twin


So, a couple of songs off of Gazelle Twin’s new EP Mammal. They’re moody, pretty, and a bit creepy. The first video here is the official video for “Heartbeat.” The visuals for the second song, “I Turn Your Arm” come from the horror film Beyond the Black Rainbow, which, in an amazing coincidence, I recently watched. It’s a gorgeous film, as you can see from the video, but it doesn’t quite live up to the visuals.

Official Gazelle Twin site here.

Ok, so now I have Porcelain Raft’s ‘Drifting In and Out’ stuck in my head

In my defense, it is awfully earwormy.

That said, I have no idea what’s going on in the video, or why it’s so damn smoky. I will not be eating at that restaurant, that’s for sure. Second-hand smoke kills!

Is Tropical makes an infomercial

After watching that I felt a really strong urge to buy a fountain.
