He’s been part of the New York performance art noise scene for over 15 years, and the weird and wonderful go hand in hand on the forthcoming debut solo album from Rob Erickson, also known as LUMBEROB. The reference points for the 22-track collection range from Captain Beefheart to Dan Deacon via Deerhoof, which is …

Up above is the suitably kaleidoscopic artwork for the debut album by The Midnight Wishers; that’s Jin Lee, Rachel Herman and Jessica McFarland, the trio being overseen by the Brooklyn-based Curtis Godino. Three weeks today, the collaborative project releases their self-titled LP, and we’re bringing you another taste of the record after we premiered lead …

As the northern hemisphere moves into autumn, the onset of falling leaves and shorter evenings may have you pining for sunnier times; here’s a band that can help with that. Full of whimsy and intrigue, the Kamloops, BC-based quartet Mother Sun serve up an ideal tonic for seasonal blues on their brand new double single …

He’s been part of a number of bands including the live setup for Tycho, but Billy Kim has only recently started to embark on a musical venture of his own. Back in March, the artist also known as Karaboudjan (yes, that is a The Adventures of Tintin reference) released his debut single ‘Seems Like’, and …

Should their albums be considered solely within the context of their solo endeavours or do they have to stand in the spotlight alongside the collective behemoths that preceded them? It’s even trickier …

SARAH K PEDINOTTI is the living, breathing Brooklyn-based human behind the glam-psych-pop stylings of LIP TALK, who’s just dropped the video for the glitteringly trippy “More” – and we’ve got it here for you. “More” concerns just that; the craving, the craven, the wish to hold and consume; be more excited, more satiated, love more …

Just when you think everything’s lost, and you’ve lost your own mind, that’s when you know you’ve then come to the end of the road.“ Ross Godfrey of Morcheeba. I …

Matt Berry has celebrated a decade being signed with groundbreaking, eclectic record label Acid Jazz, as well as marking his subsequent album, via his new single ‘Abroad’.
