Noble Rot

Noble Rot is the new project from Alex Edkins of METZ and Graham Walsh of Holy Fuck.  The Toronto duo's first single "Casting No Light" is a noisy, pulsing piece of thumping post punk.  Check it out below and pre-order the upcoming "Heavenly Bodies, Repetition Control" LP here from Joyful Noise.

Daily Jam - Ninna Nanna Per Adulteri

Ennio Morricone's body of work is so vast that there are a significant amount of films i've never seen (and most likely will never get a chance to see) that he provided the scores to.  So i don't know the original context in which the beautiful and dreamlike "Ninna Nanna Per Adulteri" played, what kind of scene it underscored.  But i think that's okay because it's a wonderful piece of music all on its own.  Listen below, our Daily Jam.

Daily Jam - Doll Is Mine

I listened to Blonde Redhead's "Misery Is a Butterfly" the other day for the first time in a long while, and honestly, i had forgotten how goddamn good the thing is.  Here's a track from it for your Sunday.  Listen to "Doll Is Mine" below, our Daily Jam.

Saturday, February 25, 2023


Bristol band NAUT just released their new album "Hunt," a collection of tracks smashing the sounds of post punk, darkwave, goth, death rock, and '80s British heavy metal into one glorious aesthetic.  Check out "Unity of Opposites" below and get the record here from Season of Mist.

Daily Jam - Within You

We've been so busy around here the last few weeks with seeing family, work stuff, and trying to clear all the broken limbs and debris from the ice storm, that we haven't cleaned our house in four weeks.  It's gross around here.  Really gross.  So, about to turn up the stereo and let the jams play at random while we get to work.  Let's start with this wistful little number from Ray LaMontagne.  Listen to "Within You" below, our Daily Jam.

Ray Charles is one of the first artists i remember liking when i was really young.  Going through my parents' record collection as a pre-schooler, it was him, The Beach Boys, and Bobby Darin that i first gravitated towards.  Here's a track from Ray.  Listen to "Born to Lose" below, our Daily Jam.

Thursday, February 23, 2023

Daily Jam - Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like That)

If i thought about it for a little while, i'm sure i could come up with a good list of artists who are just too cool for their own good.  Digable Planets are definitely on that list.  Here they are with "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like That)," our Daily Jam.

Allison Lorenzen & Midwife Cover Bush

Allison Lorenzen is a Denver based artist whose sound is a lulling mix of shoegaze, dreampop, and slowcore alt-rock.  Midwife is also a Denver based artist whose sound rides the same kind of vibes, but with some drone thrown in for good measure.  Together, they cover Bush apparently.  And i'll be damned if it isn't excellent.  Check out the duo's take on "Glycerine" below and download it here.

Principles of Geometry Remixed by MPU101

Check out Munich based artist MPU101's remix of Principles of Geometry's "Qontinent AG."  Airy, dreamy stuff.  Listen below and download it here.

Daily Jam - Last Exit

Been trying to get through all the branches and tree limbs we lost during the ice storm at the beginning of the month.  It's a lot of work, and we still have a lot to do, and my body is currently screaming at me, it's so sore.  Anyway, here's Pearl Jam.  Listen to a track from their best album (yeah i said it) below, "Last Exit," our Daily Jam.

Demetrio Cecchitelli

I still have not recovered from my last two busy weekends, and i think its taking its toll on me physically.  There's much to do today and tomorrow too, but for the next 10 minutes, i'm going to try and center myself to the cathartic sounds of multi-instrumentalist and composer Demetrio Cecchitelli.  New album "Infinite Gesture" is out now.  Get the cassette here from Rohs! Records, calm yourselves, and listen to "Invisible Landscape" with me below.

Daily Jam - If Looks Could Kill

Here's a wonderful piece of '00s pop from Scottish group Camera Obscura for your Saturday.  Listen to the wall-of-sound din of "If Looks Could Kill" below, our Daily Jam.

Friday Horror Trailer - Mystics in Bali

Beck - Thinking About You

Beck dropped a new acoustic track a few days ago, a melancholy lament that would fit right at home on "Mutations" or "Sea Change."  Listen to "Thinking About You" below.

Cory Hanson

Wand's Cory Hanson is readying his third solo album for release this summer.  First single "Housefly" finds the artist a little more rollicking tone than his previous efforts, a mix of Americana and bar rock.  Check it out below and pre-order the ridiculously titled "Western Cum" here from Drag City.

Daily Jam - Out of Time

My favorite Stones song is pretty locked up, but there's a constantly revolving cast for the number two slot.  I think today it's "Out of Time."  Listen below, our Daily Jam.

The Lost Days

The California duo of Tony Molina and Sarah Rose Janko make music together as The Lost Days, and this March sees the release of their debut full-length LP "In the Store."  Gentle, sing-song, psych and folk-tinged pop abounds.  Check out the title track below and pre-order the record here from Speakeasy Studios SF.

Daily Jam - Wings of Light

An Elephant Six band that i think never really got their due is the wonderful Georgia band Elf Power.  They always kind of played JV to likes of Neutral Milk Hotel and the others.  But they're still kicking around and they're still great.  Here's a track from their 2000 album "The Winter Is Coming."  Listen to "Wings of Light" below, our Daily Jam.

Secret Machines

Next month sees the release of "The Moth, The Lizard, and The Secret Machines," the latest from New York based space rock band Secret Machines.  Work on the record actually began way back in 2010, but was shelved for awhile after the death of bandmate/brother Benjamin Curtis.  And now, it finally sees its completion.  Check out "The Finalizer" below and pre-order the album from the band here.

Daily Jam - You Keep Me Hangin' On

Like Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay," The Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On" is one of those songs i seem to love every version of.  Here's psych rock version from Vanilla Fudge the regained some traction a few years back due to its inclusion in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood."  Check it out below, our Daily Jam.

Teeth of the Sea

Things get cosmic with the latest single from UK band Teeth of the Sea.  The prog-tinged group soundtrack Apollo's Moon Shot with "Vortex of Release," synths humming over a din of electronic beats, horns, and more.  Check it out below and download it here.

Daily Jam - Pendulum

Every day is a good day for Broadcast.  In my opinion, one of the top five artists of the last 25 years.  Listen to "Pendulum" below, our Daily Jam.

Mark Peters

Last year, UK artist Mark Peters released one of my favorite albums of the year with the Americana/dreampop blend of "Red Sunset Dreams."  March sees the release of "The Magic Hour EP," and new track "Alpenglow," which drops a lot of the sweeping soundscapes of its predecessor for something a little more churning.  Check it out below and pre-order the 10" here from Sonic Cathedral.


Chicago's FACS are back with a new album of noisy, angular post punk to darken our collective skies.  Listen to new song "When You Say" below and pre-order the band's upcoming "Still Life in Decay" here from Trouble In Mind.

Poison Ruïn

Philly band Poison Ruïn make a rad mix of dungeon synth and punk rock.  The result is a moody and lo-fi blast.  New album "H​ä​rvest" is out in April on Relapse.  Pre-order it here and listen to the title track below.

Daily Jam - Twenty Four Hours

The sun may be out and shining this morning, but it feels like a Joy Division kind of day if you ask me.  So here's a track from the band's sophomore album "Closer."  Listen to "Twenty Four Hours" below, our Daily Jam.

Daily Jam - Clairaudients (Kill or Be Killed)

I was really into Bright Eyes for awhile in the '00s.  My adulation of the group eventually waned after a few years, the 2007 track "Clairaudients (Kill or Be Killed)" being the last song the band released that i truly adored.  Soothing, melancholy alt-folk for the soul.  Check it out below, our Daily Jam.

Saturday, February 11, 2023

Daily Jam - Marigold

I've said it before, but Nirvana is one of those bands whose B-sides and demos and rarities are better than most other bands' singles and main output.  Here's the Dave Grohl fronted "Marigold," our Daily Jam.

Friday Horror Trailer - Alone

Daily Jam - What You Don't Want Me to Be

I've got a work thing going on all day today and this weekend, so the next few posts were all written and scheduled a few days ago.  If anything awesome or awful is happening right now, you're not gonna read about it here.  Anyway, here's some '70s Atlanta soul from Lee Moses for what is hopefully an excellent Friday.  Listen to "What You Don't Want Me to Be" below, our Daily Jam.

The Utopia Strong

UK psych and krautrock band The Utopia Strong just dropped new album "Gyre."  The album consists of two sprawling, enormous songs that touch on Eastern melodies and tones, analog synths, and cosmic drone.  Check out "Mansions of the Soul" below and download the album from the band here.

Daily Jam - Nebraska

I don't know if there's a song that better captures the feeling of driving through the plains quite like Bruce Springsteen's "Nebraska."  You can practically see the endless fields and farmland, and a road that stretches into nothingness on the horizon.  Listen below, our Daily Jam.

Tuesday, February 7, 2023


April brings us new music from New York band Spotlights.  The mix of shoegaze and stoner metal on 2019's "Love & Decay" made for one of my favorite albums of that year, and while the album art for the upcoming "Alchemy for the Dead" may be a little too mid-'00s Hot Topic for my tastes, i'm still onboard.  Check out "Algorithmic" below and pre-order the record here from Ipecac.

Sister Grotto

New Mexico's Madeline Johnston makes music under the moniker of Midwife, but has just released an album with new project Sister Grotto.  "Song for an Unborn Sun" is a mix of ambient drone and subdued riffs, part shoegaze, part Americana, part something else.  Check out "Placeholder" below and get the album here from The Flenser.
