AU – Solid Gold Live Performance Video (Into The Woods)

AU’s music is insane — in a marching band out of a circus hall-of-mirrors kind of way. Senses of up and down and left and right are obliterated in maximalist fashion; their recent Into The Woods session utilizes quick cuts galore to highlight the Portland band’s trumpet-sax-guitar-drum-keys madness. It matters little that they’re performing in...Read...

Madness! YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN + Swahili Blonde = On The Topic Of “Psych-Opera”, Genre-Crossing, Press Hype.

A post critiquing two female-fronted, genre-hopping experimental bands — and exaggerations. YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN Pitchfork describes YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN as “psych-opera.” Press point yarn.

When in consideration of YT//ST, one is inundated with hype terminology — including the band’s calling themselves “Noh(能)-Wave”...Read...

Water Borders – Harbored Mantras Album Review

I’ve always been fascinated with music that feels removed, purposefully or not, form the time period in which it is being created. Some records feel dated in a disparaging sense, but the new album from Water Borders sounds like a beautifully scripted scene from a medieval play performed in the modern era. Listen to “What...Read...

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – “Trouble” Music Video (w/ Q&A Interview)

This video for Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur’s “Trouble” resides mostly in a David Lynchian universe, with heroined-out slow-motion vibes. Interspliced, however, are quick flickering shots of TEED (Orlando Higginbottom) being adorned with mysterious headdresses — an art form that has become a staple in TEED’s videos.
