De Lux

Here's a little retro, post-disco bop from LA duo De Lux for jamming away deep into the night, or early into the morning hours if you will.  Listen to "Poorn in the Nightmare" below and get the group's "More Disco Songs About Love" LP here from Innovative Leisure.

I was a big fan of the "Memory Bed" cassette EP that Portland, Oregon lo-fi, shoegaze band drowse released back in 2016, so i'm stoked that the project now has a full-length LP on the way this March from the always outstanding The Flenser.  "Cold Air" looks to be a rumination of sorts about death and uncertainty set to reverbed melodies.  Listen to "Quickening" below and pre-order the record here.

Cavern of Anti-Matter

Stereolab's Tim Gane also makes music under the moniker Cavern of Anti-Matter, crafting quirky, motorik, kosmische pop with an array of modular synthesizers and drum machines.  It's good fun.  Listen to "Make Out Fade Out" below and pre-order the upcoming "Hormone Lemonade" LP due in March here from the band's own Duophonic label.

The Soft Moon

February brings us new industrial-tinged, synthy and gothy post-punk from the ever pulsing The Soft Moon.  Listen to "Choke" below and snag the upcoming "Criminal" LP from Sacred Bones in a couple weeks.

Hot Snakes

Attention!  New music from Hot Snakes!  Attention!  New music from Hot Snakes!  Listen to "Six Wave Hold-Down" below and be on the lookout for new album "Jericho Sirens" in March from Sub Pop.

The Decemberists - Severed

I've never been the biggest fan of The Decemberists, their brand of Americana-drenched indie rock serving as so much background noise.  But you throw in super producer John Congleton and some synthesizers into the mix, and you've got my attention.  New single "Severed" sounds like the band spent some time listening to a bunch of New Order records and then decided to make one of their own, albeit with their Americana-drenched indie rock still intact.  It works way better than it probably should, and i feel it's only going to grow on me.  Watch the video below and look for new album "I'll Be Your Girl" in March from Capitol.


Here's some dancey, synthy, gothy post punk from Spanish trio S.A.D.  Propulsive beats, flowing washes of synthesizer, and punchy, catchy melodies to dance in the gray to.  Listen to "Money From Savages" below and get the "She's Gone" 12" here from Oraculo Records.

Mount Eerie

Phil Elverum continues to explore and work out his grief over his wife's passing on new album "Now Only," the follow up to last year's stark and devastating "A Crow Looked At Me."  Listen to "Distortion" below and look for the new record in March on Elverum and Sun.
