I just heard Canadian rapper Backxwash for the first time a few weeks ago with her appearance on a new track from post punk band Algiers.  Doing a little digging, and the rapper has released some really dark and impressive work on her own mixing hip-hop, metal, punk, noise, and more.  New album "His Happiness Shall Come First Even Though We Are Suffering" just dropped today, and it kicks ass.  Check out "VIBANDA" featuring Morgan-Paige and Michael Go below and get the album here.

Tai Chi Tommy

Tai Chi Tommy makes a spooky mix of lo-fi doo-wop, surf rock, and garage psych.  New album "Nightmares at the Sad Souls Social Club" sounds like it was assembled from a thousand different Halloween novelty 45s from the '50s and '60s, and pureed into its truest form.  Check out the lament of "Nightmares" above and order the record here from Library of the Occult.

Voice Actor

I'm not 100% sure what to make of "Sent from my Telephone," the absolutely massive new album from Voice Actor.  The album comes in at over 100 tracks and over 3 hours long and is a mesmerizing and woozy mix of ambient synths, old hip-hop samples, hypnotic spoken word, digital folk, and other sonic detritus.  Put yourself in a trance and check the whole thing out here from, but listen to "Another Day" below in the meantime.

The Telescopes and Flavor Crystals have combined their talents again for a new Foam Giant album.  "Under the Trees" is described as a "soundtrack to a Danish film that was never made in 1991."  Cool.  Check out the practically oozing "Billiken (When Are You Coming Down)" below and order the record here from mpls ltd.
