Proud owners of cars manufactured pre-millennium, rejoice: Björk is reissuing her nine studio albums — from Debut to Utopia — as limited-edition cassette tapes! Let me rewind and hit you with that again (wait, hold on, give me a minute…); yes, that’s right: you can finally collect Björk’s nine timeless albums on the most archaic music format still in mass production!

And just like that, The Caretaker finishes off his massive multi-album series on early-onset dementia, titled Everywhere at the end of time, with its sixth and final installment. Part 6 (the “post-awareness stage) is 90 minutes long, with excellent artwork once again provided by Ivan Seal. From Leyland Kirby:

Well, guess we all knew this day was coming sooner or later: after eight incredible years’ worth of basically sharing his fastidious compositional sketchbooks with the world, Jason Lescalleet has released what he’s officially calling the final installment of his vault-clearing This Is What I Do series.

Eight years on, and New York City-dwellers are suddenly less concerned about a warming-induced future that’ll have speedboats replacing ride shares and coral replacing bagels in the city’s collective breakfast routine. The clarity of that future persists, to be sure; but helping to mitigate the feeling of inevitable human/global catastrophe is the annual End Tymes Festival, which has been happening in Brooklyn since around the time that Al Gore was still vaguely synonymous with both cyborgs and climate change activism.

Wow, Foodman, wow. Whatcha got cooking in there? What’s with all this chemistry I’m feelin’? Oh? Ho! ODOODO EP??? ODOODO EP!

ODOODO EP coming March 29 (via Mad Decent), “Moyashi Kids” streaming right now. “Moyashi Kids” is tasty spaghetti without tomatoes (Amore tomatoes?, Roma tomatoes?) and tasty shepherd’s pie without potatoes (don’t you get off that pan, Otis!). No need to be so ODOODO, dude. This stuff is great!

Guess what, hyperreal internet superfriends??

Greta “your nickname will be Frankie Cosmos!” Kline just announced the release of a NEW THING.

It’s called Haunted Items, and it’s thing-ness consists of “a digital-only collection of new stripped-down songs for the piano.” Observe:

When you were listening to Liz Harris’s excellent album as Nivhek, After its own death / Walking in a spiral towards the house, did you wonder what it would be like to hear it either while on DMT or while fighting the alien at the end of the movie Annihilation? Well, assuming you haven’t already had those experiences (and props if you have), you’re now one step closer to approximating them.
