Mister Lies Mister Lies

[Self-Released; 2019]

Styles: dreams, memory, immersion
Others: David Sylvian, You’ll Never Get to Heaven, Laurel Halo, How to Dress Well

The moment that I remember is when he threw the book into the waves. It was less like Rhoda in The Waves who threw her bunch of lilacs into the spreading waters and said, “Consume me, carry me to the furthest limit,” she who said the same to a star riding through clouds one night and, with only a thin sheet to protect her fragility from the infinite depths on all sides surrounding her, supposed that she was dying and died.

Arca stages four-part performance cycle Mutant;Faith at New York’s The Shed

Arca stages four-part performance cycle Mutant;Faith at New York's The Shed

It’s been said that all the world’s a stage, but why appropriate an entire planet for the purposes of individualist expression when you can reduce your footprint and spend your time at a baller-ass (and reasonably scaled) stage like The Shed’s Griffin Theater in NYC?? I assume this comprises at least a substantial portion of the logic Arca applied when conceiving the idea for Mutant;Faith, a four-night performance series at The Shed spanning from September 25–28. At least, I certainly hope so…

Computer Slime Sticky Keys

[Self-Released; 2019]

Rating: 3.5/5

Styles: ya want more than “juke/footwork,” “juke/footwork” is all ya get, #00FF00
Others: sometimes you wish Björk sounded like this, the FBI said American conspiracy is the #1 cause of domestic terrorism, when we get Björk #2 as Illuminati lizard-clone, tho?

i don’t even have fucking cool air conditioning in my apartment, and Mr P is a son-of-a-shit. he has complete curator control over this website, you know? (btw, i’m tryna stop saying “right?” and “you know?” at the end of my sentences, because it sounds pretentious.) Mr P took Computer Slime’s Sticky Keys Choco from me on July 29. “Como ceviche de clear-goo’ y/o ‘translucent-slime?’” Fuck the stress and anxiety in all my IRL shit, but THIS????? kkkkkkkkkkok

Producer/composer Velf dismounts her sherbet unicorn in order to announce new album in a sense on Orange Milk

I’ve got a fever. No, a real one. I know this because the thermometer just told me so. But coincidentally, I also have a fever for more cowbell/endless releases from Orange Milk Records, and the newest promotion from the Ohio-borne imprint (run by Seth Graham and Keith Rankin a.k.a. Giant Claw) is the sophomore effort from an artist whose music fits snugly into Orange Milk’s polygonal gap.

W00dy to release new album "My Diary" next month

A couple days ago, I found out that one of my favorite artists — the Pittsburgh-based, TMT-fave, absurdist-dancefloor-producer extraordinaire W00dy — has a new album coming out.

When I found out this news, I was at work, checking my email during a break, where a new message awaited, the subject line innocently hanging there for me to read: “W00dy releases next album My Diary 9/3.”

Electronic duo Pelada announce debut album on PAN, consider all kinds of movements

Despite what you might think, the recent impulse to get politically involved isn’t just an American response to the systematic shattering of norms by the executive branch. People around the world have been spurned to protest by various events over the past few years; and certainly, Eastern Canada isn’t immune to the issues that have arrived preeminently like a mysterious odor infiltrating one’s apartment.

The record is out September 20 via Room40, and features nine “sonic impressions” inspired by a journey to the burial mounds and Buddhist artifacts of Japan’s Asuka region.

The Deontic Miracle Selections from 100 Models of Hegikan Roku

[Empty Editions/Blank Forms; 2019]

Styles: drone, experimental, ambient
Others: La Monte Young, John Cage

The fact that we can even listen to Selections from 100 Models of Hegikan Roku would seem like a betrayal of Catherine Christer Hennix’s artistic vision. The Swedish-born majordomo fronting the Deontic Miracle demands of her music both speakers and a venue that can accommodate radical fluctuations in frequency and intensity. The space informs the quality of the music as much as the performer, she maintains. Museums, as well as her own home, are ideal locales for her performances, despite whatever physical limitations lie therein.
