Amazing song, kinda like having your head wrapped in a cloud for seven minutes! 'How Light Works' ( free download ) is essentially an instrumental with some vocal effects that will drag you into a day dream. Note - not to be confused with the electronic duo out of the UK also called Linea Aspera. Linea Aspera - 'How Light Works' [...]

Deadspin recently dug up this beautiful video of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev getting dominated by a kid named Nate in a high school wrestling match, set to the tune of "America, Fuck Yeah!" For comedic purposes, we'll ignore the fact that Tsarnaev is actually an American citizen and just enjoy the sight of a terrorist getting his ass handed to him on the mat. Made my day to watch this kid flail around harder and less successfully than a Magikarp in a Pokemon fight. Not so tough without the help of gunpowder and explosives now, are we? [...]
I had the wondrous opportunity to see echo-synth-noise-darkwave duo Tearist (pronounced tear like rip apart) perform at Los Angeles's Lyric Theater a few nights ago. As a total Tearist virgin, I was only marginally prepared for what would ultimately become an invitedly deep aural penetration. The magnetically charged female vocalist, Yasmine Kittles, took the stage with [...] The post Tearist live @ Lyric Theater, Hollywood appeared first on Cougar Microbes .

Aye yo! Did you know Surkin , the house music golden child, came back with a new EP? Advanced Entertainment Systems? Well, he did, and it features a little bit of every style Surkin has developed over the years. His debut LP was, admittedly, very underwhelming and it's a shame because we all know just how talented this guy is. He's still somewhat focusing on a retro house sound and is doing it properly albeit perhaps Stronger , the EP's low point. Will we be treated to a follow up [...]
Our dedicated writer of all things heavy Ryan Stephenson was happy to find out that the mighty Goatwhore was playing in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA, only 10 blocks away from his house. Of course he went along to see what it was all about.

After Mike Skinner put The Streets to rest after 5 albums I didn't think I would hear much from the bloke. I waited for some time, and nothing... I followed Skinner on his blog http://mikeskinner.so and watched for him to put out something new. Nothing happened... I mean, there were some new posts and interesting photos, and words, but no music. And then-a few months back, I became aware that I was literally on Mike Skinner's personal emailing list. A message popped up from one of my favorite anti-mainstream mainstream artists. I had received an email from [...]
Luis Vasquez and his project THE SOFT MOON present another music video from the second album Zeros, which was released in November 2012. Want is a dark journey again. Vasquez knows to create gritty atmospheres with his music. And so the impelling and deep sound fit perfectly to the threatening setting. Although the musician chose The post The Soft Moon with new video "Want" appeared first on Nothing But Hope And Passion - NBHAP - Music Magazine & more .
With a sound influenced by some obscure 802s mojo, an indie edge and a dark mood. The Manhattan duo Cardiknox, made of Lonnie Angle on vocal and producer Thomas Dutton, prove they can deliver some quality sounds even if their two tracks ‘Hold Me Down’ and ‘Where I’m Headed’ might sound diametrically opposite. Keep a close eye for these guys in the near future. Shout Out to Ilovepie for digging this one out for us : Ilovepie.co.uk . In the meantime head on hit play and download these two tracks below, [...]
Back in January Tycho played a pair of back-to-back shows at The Troubadour in West Hollywood. And just so you don't make the same mistake I did, let me clarify - though both are from San Francisco and both start with "Ty", Tycho and Ty Segall put on two very different shows. Yes, admittedly, I [...] The post Tycho Live @ The Troubadour appeared first on Cougar Microbes .

Whether it is solo or as part of his Odd Future it seems Tyler, The Creator is unable to sit still for a minute. In the buildup to the recently released 'Wolf' album Tyler dropped a video for "IFHY", continuing his streak of ludicrously brilliant vids. Having just proclaimed (rightfully) to be "dope as fuck" on [...] The post Weekend Videos: Tyler, The Creator - "IFHY" (feat. Pharell) appeared first on Cougar Microbes .

Camera2 is a decidedly new direction and a departure from the sounds of the previous projects for all the members who have now stepped into a harder hitting, darker, upbeat and more electronically driven indie-universe... http://camera2.com [...]
It's always hard for me to review the Strokes because I'm conscious of being far from objective when it comes to them and that, to counteract my innate subjectivity, I tend to become far too critical. I openly admit to putting them on a pedestal that is so high that even Kanye West's ego wouldn't [...] The post The Strokes' 'Comedown Machine' reviewed appeared first on Cougar Microbes .
