The Carters EVERYTHING IS LOVE

[Roc Nation; 2018]

Styles: rap
Others: Patek Philippe, Lamborghini, http://www.sothebys.com, Louis Vuitton

Several publications have said that EVERYTHING IS LOVE is the finale of a trilogy of albums that also includes Beyoncé’s Lemonade and JAY-Z’s 4:44. It’s true, but the trilogy isn’t about marital triumph; no, it details the despair and the gradual flattening of a once-interesting relationship.

Billy Gomberg Beginners

[Dinzu Artefacts; 2018]

Rating: 3.5/5

Styles: drone, noise, electronics, dark
Others: Anne Guthrie, Delicate Sen, Other Vultures, Fraufraulein

As the follow-up to his excellent Slight At That Contact on Students of Decay, Beginners is a collage of field recordings, processed electronics, and drones that lulls the listener into a waking nightmare as unsettling and enigmatic as anything Billy Gomberg has released to date. Beginners sounds as though it were transmitted into our stereos from unknown sources; the more you tune in, the less clear it becomes.

Styles: pop
Others: Hannah Diamond, Prurient

Every morning and night, I take two 2mg tablets of estrogen and place them under my tongue, waiting for them to dissolve into a sickly-sweet teal effervescence that courses through my veins and reshapes my tissues, contorting and remolding my body and mind.

Happy Chromatics season, loyal readers! Of course, as you already know, every season is Chromatics season as long as Johnny Jewel has the work ethic of Sisyphus on Adderall…but today’s Chromatics-adjacent news is extra special, because it’s about an especially significant project tied to another topic perennially on TMT’s office moodboard: Twin Peaks.

Numerous anthropomorphic tour dates were announced back when Josiah “serpentwithfeet” Wise’s debut album soil was explicitly foreshadowed, but now that soil’s been released and is unloading all sorts of magnificence on the general public, it’s only natural that the chronic resident of the Northeast megalopolis would try to supplement those eccentric love songs with some addit

*Sigh…* You know, sometimes writing for Tiny Mix Tapes is hard. It more or less requires that you try and pin some tacky tags like “post-internet” or “nonbinary breakbeat hypo-information vaporcore” to music that is just downright impossible to define. Yeah, yeah I’m whining… But how would you describe the music of Chicago’s resident transcendent transfemme Angel Marcloid? Huh? If it’s so easy, why don’t you do it!?

The hysterical pace of development in north Brooklyn led to chronic conditions for DIY art spaces like Glasslands and Death By Audio, where a fair amount of the zeitgeist that fueled said development was forged. But, absorbing the environs of Elsewhere on a damp May evening, the destruction of those haunts at least pangs with creativity.
