Richard Youngs – “Tessellations”

Free MP3: Battles – "Ice Cream" Featuring Matias Aguayo

Mar 24, 2011 1:15 PM by Anngie

Battles "Gloss Drop" Warp Records

Known for deconstructing rock, punk, and electronic, taking it to the garage and stripping its fancy parts, the math-rock supergroup Battles experiment with new blood–one with Chilean sweet vocals. His name is Matias Aguayo and on the first song from the forthcoming album Gloss Drop called “Ice Cream” we get sticky prog-rock gone haywire, a bonanza of vicious riffs and made-up words. What an interesting treat! But, that’s the Battles for you.

Free MP3: Thurston Moore – "Benediction" (Produced By Beck)

Mar 23, 2011 8:06 PM by Anngie

He can rock you or he can lull you with an unraveling tale, but either way, once you hear Thurston Moore‘s music (or even Sonic Youth for that matter) one thing is clear: You’re hooked, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

On May 24th, Matador Records will be releasing the Beck produced Demolished Thoughts, a 9-song collection described by the label as “achingly beautiful and amongst Moore’s most nuanced and personal.” Download the album’s opening track “Benediction,” featuring a Moore with a slightly wounded tone over some acoustic guitar love balladry.

“The Great Pan Is Dead” is the first track off of Cold Cave‘s forthcoming album entitled Cherish The Light Years (April 5/Matador Records). Recorded with Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), this synth-rock group crafts an album in the same spectrum as their musical compatriots, (Cut Copy, The Rapture),  but tweaked with the aesthetic of Morrissey ‘s “How Soon Is Now” wailing over the dance angst of Nitzer Ebb

Marrying the experimental instincts and heavy bass instrumentation of math-rock outfit Battles, with the harmonious melodic breakdowns of Aphex Twin, Australian outfit PVT (formerly known as Pivot) creates powerful, concentrated electronic-rock on third full-length, Church With No Magic.

While we don’t have the original title track to giveaway, the Midnight Juggernauts remix breathes the same energy except this one moves more like a psychedelic-rock molasses: dark, thick, and smooth as can be.
