Hyperdub joins forces with Adult Swim for new comp ft. Dean Blunt, MHYSA, Laurel Halo, Burial, Angel Ho, and more

A lot of people don’t know this, but Hyperdub and Adult Swim were roommates way back in their Freshman year of college. Back then, life was simple. They were both Musical Theater majors who spent the majority of their time smoking cheap weed out of tin foil bowls and playing Counterstrike over their dorm’s shitty T-1 connection.

Ethr3 The Consciousness Of

[Self-Released; 2019]

Rating: 3.5/5

Styles: dance, electronic
Others: emergent properties

They say you can’t name a mountain badly; they don’t say anything about hills. And so, despite the number of Capitoline clubs and big-character promos, Seattle isn’t exactly known for dance music. To make and market any fourth-floor heresy here — a place still very much predisposed to a sometimes unbelievably dated alt sensibility — reflects a kind of Alexamenos-is-faithful graffiti instinct. It’s a nose-thumbing reactive whim to not only trespass, but to declare oneself on, and in, personal terms.

Uh… Well, sooo, yeah. I guess it’s like the headline said:

Experimental punk-jazzers The Flying Luttenbachers, having relatively recently reincarnated, are now about to release a new album called Imminent Death, which, according to the band, it consists of “seven long tracks of rhythm and insanity.”

How imminent is IMMINENT?

Hey, what do you know? Life found a way! Rhythm-centric mad scientist Beatrice Dillon has just announced her debut solo album for PAN. And, much like those engineered animals on Jurassic Park, it’s a friggin’ MONSTER.

Recorded over 2017-2019 in London, Berlin, and New York, Workarounds is part UK club skronk, part Afro-Caribbean experimentalism, and ALL GROOVE — mixing “meticulous FM synthesis and harmonics with crisply edited acoustic samples,” all at a “fixed 150bpm tempo.”

“You love being devastated,” Max said as we drank gin and tonics at my dining room table the night we found out about Hugo’s closing for good. Hugo’s, the bar where Max and I yelled about listening to Moonface during the worst years of our lives, where I yelled about the time I saw Moonface play the entirety of Julia With Blue Jeans On and Spencer Krug sat down at his piano and told us that he’d be playing the songs according to their sadness.

SSIEGE Fading Summer

[YOUTH; 2019]

Styles: sundry
Others: Objekt, 1991, Rainer Veil, Hiele, Ford & Lopatin

Sibilance dissembling, the siege slews sluggish but sly, a Trojan Horse without the spectacle. And, before long, we, slapdash and staggering, survey what’s supervened: a slipup on our parts, that’s for certain. That’s curtains. Summer’s faded, sun dispirited away and sky sable. But of course there’s still tension — struggle, even — in the surrender.
