scradam just sent me a copy of his new mixtape, Kool Keith vs. Goblin & Friends, along with an extra copy of John Carpenter vs. NYC! It features tracks by Kool keith, Mr. Hyde, Motion Man, QNC, Masters Of Illusion and more. Definitely worth the pick-up, especially since it’s FREE and comes with some super rad pins. Shoot him an ask or an email - email@example.com - if you want a copy.
Kool Keith is one of the best MCs in the Universe. Goblin is one of the wickedest bands in the Netherverse. This is what it would sound like if you put them together in the octagon, no holds barred.
Respect to the producers who sample Goblin songs in rad ways. They all help expose future generations to Goblin’s unique brand of sonic profanity. Kool Keith is the greatest.

Blackbird Blackbird has had this album floating around for a while now. It’s difficult to sum up succinctly, as there are nearly twenty tracks of mostly electronic music, varying from lazy, Bibio-informed beats to twinkling chillwave to glitzy synthpop to Swift-esque broken-down pop. The music transmogrifies constantly while maintaining a consistent vibe that keeps it from feeling like a thrown-together sampler. Blackbird Blackbird has a lot of strengths and I look forward to hearing him play to them.
If you liked Big Black Delta’s previously-posted BBDEP1, you’ve probably already clicked the link to download. The EP and the LP share 3 tracks as well as the same overall vibe. The songs on this LP would work well as straight-up pop songs but are made all the better with dense, stellar production. The music is draped with crushing drums and overdriven synthesizers, upon which are built choruses to light up the heavens. If you need some music to kick ass to, look no further than BBDLP1.
This download costs 1 email address and is only free for the next week.
TV Girl is a San Diego fuzzy pop group that counts Kynan among their members. Their music definitely has a lot of pop throwback influcences, like the ever-present reverb-heavy interpretation of Phil Spector’s and Brian Wilson’s productions. The music, however, embraces the sample-heavy background that can be traced from the Beastie Boys straight through the Avalanches to Panda Bear—building other songs upon layers and layers of tiny samples in a way that completely obliterates the source material. My only complaint about this EP is its brevity; there’s not quite ten minutes of music here, but I could honestly listen to this sound—dense production under airy pop—for hours.
Their bandcamp page, linked above, is out of downloads, but the album can be had for free below or at their facebook page for the cost of 1 email address.
M83 and their following of electro-shoegaze bands have typically allowed themselves to be awash in melancholy and nostalgia. DGRS (Degrees) don’t fall into that same trap. In fact, they seem to take that same longing and turn it into a fist-pumping, Journey-esque sincerity. In that sense, DGRS are more akin to Mew with some of the prog traded out for synth and noise. The band does allow themselves to lapse into some wistfulness without losing its stadium focus. They continue to make huge, swelling music even while keeping the songs intricately balanced. It’s much like spending a private moment with someone you love in a vast and picturesque locale—like stealing a kiss in Monument Valley.
This is Adult Swim’s best compilation, and it’s from one of my favorite labels: Ghostly International. They’ve been curating a stable of some of the best electronic musicians in the world. They’re genre-independent with styles from synthpop to krautrock, from hip hop beats to straight-up techno. If you like electronic music, you either have this already of you need all 19 tracks.
First EP under Snow Wolf, and it’s FREE. ;)
1. Lavender Town (Snow Wolf Syndrome Remix)
2. Coco & Frostee

A nice prequel for more music, go download it now for free ;)
God, I love the long memory of the internet. In 2006, Cock Rock Disco was home to music destroyer Jason Forrest and they had collected a good number of similar-minded noise-manglers. This compilation features a ton of insane noise, including could’ve-been Glitch-rap geniuses Food for Animals. There are two classical pieces, one a glitch remix of an Erik Satie piece and the other a noisy chiptune cover of an Aaron Copland piece. There is assaulting drum ‘n’ bass, punch-yr-face metal, wild and free jazz, and some really nice glitchy synthpop. You sometimes get all of that in a single track. You might HATE some of the tracks here but love the hell out of some of the others. I think that’s kinda the point.
