UZIMON has been blazing a trail since 2009 with his original blend of Reggae Dancehall and Hyper-Roots-Rock style. Straight out of Bermuda, and known for his wild stage antics, outrageous lyrics, and inexorable dedication to the true sound of reggae, UZIMON has been labeled “the Anti-Matisyahu. An outsider, yet a dogged practitioner of the true […]
The second video from Happy Music Radio Hour’s EP, The Chicago Manual of Style, features mechanized robot arms, gameboys, nuclear explosions, clones and spaceships, which is entirely appropriate given the subject matter of the song. Set to a relentless Kraftwerkian beat, is it an indictment of technology? A celebration? A portent of the approaching singularity? Whatever […]
New York based artist, KOORTWAH, has just unveiled a stunning new video for his song Forty Five. Its bleak, sexually charged imagery, paired with Jake Courtois’ monotone recitation, haunting howls, and soaring falsetto, make for a stimulating piece that lingers in your mind long after the last flicker of the KOORTWAH logo. Black and white images of […]

Two of the rap games bigger up-and-comers, Danny Brown and A$AP Rocky, are no strangers to being lavish, eye grabbing, and bold. Noisey’s YouTube channel had a creative idea to sit the two young lyricists down in a multi-part series to talk about everything from girls to rock stars, to drug experiences to Ol’ Dirty […]

Most of his equipment and ideas come from using basic micro-chip boards contected to frequencey nobs to create ‘noise’. This technologival equipment has been sought after by groups such […]
Are you reading this drunk? If not, grab a whisky and let’s rendezvous in thirty. Highway Landscapes by French singer Pauline Andrès is in no rush. The video is paced precisely the way Transformers 2 isn’t, and the song’s loose, languid style is like a Lynchian lullaby – all brooding menace, and dark-eyed girls in […]
Media artist Brian House just did the unthinkable: he used a personal tracking app to collect all his movements over a year, worked out an algorithm to set the places he visited most to music, then stamped it all on vinyl. In other words, he effectively turned his location data into Quotidian Record, an epic […]
Fuck Buttons have a new album out called Slow Focus. It is their first new album in four years and well worth the wait. Check out the first video off the album, The Red Wing, then go grab the album for the rest of the electronic tripiness inside.
Words can not express the choreographed magic in this performance set to the song Eclipse Blue by Jason Chung, aka Nosaj Thing. It was created by Daito Manabe, takcom, Satoru Higa, and MIKIKO, with support from The Creators Project.
He’s handsome, sounds a bit like a mixture between Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow, and his recent single, Invisible Man, comes with a dreamy video produced by the artist himself. Former Leftfield vocalist Ruu Campbell has everything it takes to be a singer-songwriting star. And it’s great to see him switch genres with such […]

Athens, Georgia, heavy metal duo, Jucifer have unleashed a preview of their new album, ЗА ВОЛГОЙ ДЛЯ НАС ЗЕМЛИ НЕТ (There is No Land Beyond the Volga). The song is called Queen of Antlers and is a BRUTAL narrative from the viewpoint of a Soviet female combat soldier in World War II. Not for the faint of heart, but […]
This is precious: a handwritten ‘Top 50 by Nirvana‘ note by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain on the best music acts. Besides the usual suspects (Sonic Youth? Leadbelly? But of course), it’s cool to find the likes of PJ Harvey, Public Enemy and Mazzy Star making the list as well.
