Good news for all you Christians, Superman readers, fans of Dr. Who, et. al: “Resurrection” is not just for fan-fiction anymore; it’s now A TOTALLY EMPIRICAL FACT!

Following 2017’s (willful) dissolution of Swans in its then-current iteration, Michael Gira has resuscitated the band for album number fifteen. It’s called Leaving Meaning, and it’s out October 25 via Mute/Young God.

Brooklyn-based transcendental black metal quartet Liturgy are back with their first new release since 2015’s The Ark Work. The eight-minute “God of Love,” which it is TMT’s honor to premiere here, is an absolutely searing return to form that sees the band dishing out some of their most hard-hitting and emotional music to date.

Returning from a three-year absence, Lower Dens have outdone themselves again with their new album The Competition, out Friday, September 6 on Ribbon. Its 11 infectious, sophisti-pop songs are a thing of wistful yet grounded interior grandeur. They’re sturdy enough to serve as endearing meditations on this essential/impossible human feat of juggling both our suffering with exuberance and our succinct expression with ecstatic abandon.

Lil B drops 50-track mixtape, The Hunchback Of BasedGod

Lil B drops 50-track mixtape, The Hunchback Of BasedGod

Reunited and it feels so good! To no one’s surprise, Lil B, Caillou’s favorite rapper, has released another mixtape, this time one-upping his last tape (28 Wit a Ladder) by 8 tracks to reach Ultra BasedGod status of an even 50 cuts.

Loscil Equivalents

[Kranky; 2019]

Rating: 3/5

Styles: ambient, drone, minimalism
Others: Stars of The Lid, Christina Vantzou, Eluvium, Deadbeat, Pop Ambient, Dedekind Cut

Steadily active since 2001, Vancouver musician (and VG sound director) Scott Morgan’s Loscil project has given us one immaculate ambient album after another. Although it still sounds amazing (“Emma” in particular remains a potent, solace-instilling slice of brain raki), First Narrows and its skittering dub have since nearly folded into a templated sort of bed/study music role. But so has Eno’s ambient work. Both artists make albums that are somewhat utilitarian in a fashion that befits their chosen genre.

Khruangbin Hasta El Cielo

[Dead Oceans/Night Time Stories; 2019]

Rating: 3/5

Styles: dub
Others: Scientist, Lee “Scratch” Perry

No topic is ever exhausted. There is always another voice, another way to voice. An iteration might literally arrive on the wispy tail of a reverberation or inspirationally from the ghosts riding that same trail. We wonder, what was its origin? And from where? And/or. In the space of that dash, in one more laterally elliptical, Hasta El Cielo stretches out as/in an unending echo.

With a cascade of releases spewing from the likes of DatPiff, LiveMixtapes, Bandcamp, and SoundCloud, it can be difficult to keep up with the overbearing yet increasingly vital mixtape game. In this column, we aim to immerse ourselves in this hyper-prolific world and share our favorite releases each month. The focus will primarily be on rap mixtapes — loosely defined here as free (or sometimes free-to-stream) digital releases — but we’ll keep things loose enough to branch out if/when we feel it necessary.

Hypermagic audio allstar Klein has returned with a new album called Lifetime // and a performance of the same name.

The album hits on September 6 through ijn inc. // That night, she’ll be delivering “a multisensory performance” at London’s Serpentine Galleries, and later at Poland’s Unsound festival.

The record is an intimate experience, like “giving someone your diary,” according to Klein. // The performance explores “the fragility of one’s culture through memory and loss using this performance as a tool of preservation.”
