“It’s Hard To Be Humble (When You’re From Alabama)”
Matthew Houck — a.k.a. Phosphorescent, a.k.a. the guy who is NOT obsessed with porn (dated reference) — is releasing a new LP, Here’s to Taking It Easy, May 11 on Dead Oceans.
“The Love Between”
Tim Presley’s White Fence project is set to release a self-titled debut on April 27 via Woodsist. Don’t care? Well, Presley is also a full-time member of The Strange Boys, sings in Darker My Love, and was a musician on The Fall’s Reformation post TLC. Oh, so NOW you care. Christ.
“Master Cleanse (California)”
WHY’s Josiah Wolf has gone solo on our asses. His debut LP, Jet Lag, is due March 2 via Anticon. Our lives will never be the same.
Nick Jaina’s latest, A Bird in the Opera House, is due April 13 on Hush. Expect lush orchestration, exquisite melodies, and, if you’re listening closely enough, nudity.
“Don’t Go Phantom” (Amtrak Remix)
Jookabox’s Dead Zone Boys was released late last year via Asthmatic Kitty, but the label has teamed up recently with Audio Recon for a remix EP titled Dead Zone RMXS. I have no fucking clue what RMXS means. Anyway, check out this track, remixed by Amtrak.
“I Need a Dollar”
Aloe Blacc’s single “I Need a Dollar” is the lead track to the new HBO show How To Make It in America. It stars the TMT staffers, who has clearly made it in America.
