Oog Bogo :: Disappear

Posted on

Oog Bogo :: Disappear Excavated from a box of tapes during lockdown, and sonically self-described as stoned, sunbaked and windburnt, LA’s Oog Bogo’s EP 2 vibrates on a woozy and wavy, lo-fi plane. Mixed and mastered by Ty Segall, and released on his God? Records imprint, the four tracks recall psych-folk whiffs of homespun Barrett … Continue reading Oog Bogo :: Disappear

Videodrome :: Doctor Death (1989)

Posted on

Videodrome :: Doctor Death (1989) (Welcome to Videodrome. A recurring column plumbing the depths of vintage and contemporary cinema – from cult, exploitation, trash and grindhouse to sci-fi, horror, noir, documentary and beyond.) Doctor Death isn’t your typical Halloween movie. For starters, it’s more sci-fi than horror. Nevertheless, you’d be hard-pressed to find a movie that better … Continue reading Videodrome :: Doctor Death (1989)

Starflyer 59 :: Vanity

Posted on

Starflyer 59 :: Vanity For the better part of three decades, Jason Martin has recorded and released music as Starflyer 59. Though the shoegaze classic Gold rightfully earned Martin a spot on Pitchfork’s 50 Best Shoegaze Albums list, he’s steadfastly maintained a low profile, never showy or overwrought, as his concisely worded interviews and sometimes … Continue reading Starflyer 59 :: Vanity

Tonstartssbandht :: Petunia

Posted on

Tonstartssbandht :: Petunia Orlando brothers Andy and Edwin White—a warm, enveloping duo known as Tonstartssbandht—return with Petunia, their follow-up to 2017’s Sorcerer, a record we dug for its dynamic and invigorated orbit of jammy neo-psych-folk, cloud-bound vocal harmonies, and spacey ambient soundscapes. This new work is a bit more song-oriented than its predecessor—it has four … Continue reading Tonstartssbandht :: Petunia

Dina Ögon :: Ficktjuven The self-titled debut from Sweden’s Dina Ögon is, at its root, a collaboration between vocalist Anna Ahnlund and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Ögren.

Marissa Nadler :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview Since the early aughts, Marissa Nadler has made a chillingly beautiful kind of music, based on intricate folk-picked guitar and deeply personal.

Ty Segall :: Harmonizer

Posted on

Ty Segall :: Harmonizer There’s a fine tradition of albums named after the recording studios that birthed them, so in the modern era of so much at-home recording, it’s almost a warm and welcoming anachronism when it happens. Harmonizer, the first recording to be completed at Ty Segall’s new Harmonizer Studios, is just that. Coming … Continue reading Ty Segall :: Harmonizer

Gloria Ann Taylor & Misha Panfilov Sound Combo :: Be Worthy In the late ’70s Gloria Ann Taylor walked away from the music business, her career having largely stalled out since its auspicious ’60s origins. But a recent renewed interest in the pioneering R&B/soul singer—ultimately resulting in the winning 2015 compilation Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing—sparked … Continue reading Gloria Ann Taylor & Misha Panfilov Sound Combo :: Be Worthy

Bedouine :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview On the heels of two outstanding studio records, singer-songwriter Azniv Korkejian (Bedouine) has crafted an enviable trajectory sharing a creative space akin to the folk sphere of Karen Dalton or Nick Drake.

Jerry David DeCicca :: The Unlikely Optimist & His Domestic Adventures This one from the outstanding Texas Hill Country-based singer-songwriter Jerry David DeCicca emerged digitally last year, but it definitely needs another bump — especially since the Worried Songs label has now given it a well-deserved vinyl edition. The Unlikely Optimist & His Domestic Adventuresisn’t a record … Continue reading Jerry David DeCicca :: The Unlikely Optimist & His Domestic Adventures

Ben Chasny :: The Intimate Landscape

Ben Chasny :: The Intimate Landscape Let’s hear it for Ben Chasny, who’s pulled off a rare hat trick for 2021 — three radically different (and just plain radical) releases in a single calendar year.

Tarah Kikuchi :: Science EP

Posted on

Tarah Kikuchi :: Science EP Tokyo based Tarah Kikuchi is by turns throwback and on-trend. His homespun recordings feel snug, warm and familiar. Songs like “Railgun Girl” reside in a sweet spot between Hosono and Demarco, but it’s when he ventures out from that place of comfort, sonically, on a track like “Veronica,” the results … Continue reading Tarah Kikuchi :: Science EP
