Gultskra Artikler

Galaktika, the newest release by Moscow-based Gultskra Artikler, is due April 20 via Other Electricities. Wish I had something funny to say here, but this music is too serious.

Foot Village

“Reggae War Zone”

Check out this sweet video for “Reggae War Zone” off last year’s Anti-Magic. The video was created by a class of 50 students who specifically chose the song to make an animation for. I fucking love Foot Village. Maybe you do too?

“New Farmer” [feat. Mia Doi Todd]

Kisses, an L.A.-based duo featuring Jesse Kivel and Zinzi Edmundson, will release on April 27 their first single, “Bermuda,” on Surrounded By Sound. They’re obviously influenced by disco, but don’t they sound kinda like this Swedish fish?

Latapaza Band


Strut is reissuing Duncan Brooker’s Afro-Rock Volume 1 compilation next week. Unfortunately, you won’t hear this Latapaza Band song on it because it’s a bonus, non-album track. Fortunately, TMT is here for you.

CHOCOLATE GRINDER is our audio/visual section, with an emphasis on the lesser heard and lesser known. We aim to dig deep, but we'll post any song or video we find interesting, big or small.
