Daily Jam - To Here Knows When

Every once in a while, i can go back and listen to My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless," and it's like hearing it for the first time.  Just a perfect and amazing record.  Listen to "To Here Knows When" below, our Daily Jam.

Daily Jam - Holocaust

Big Star are one of those bands that influenced pretty much everybody, but for whatever reason were kind of ignored during their own time.  I dig them a lot, particularly their third album, when they started to get weird.  Listen to the quietly devastating "Holocaust" below, our Daily Jam.

Pink Mexico

Here's some new shoegaze i missed last month from New York band Pink Mexico.  Layered guitars.  Feedback.  Dreamy vocals.  Reverb.  It's all here.  Check out "Junkie Smile" below and get the new "Mirrorhead" LP here from Quiet Panic.

Daily Jam - Solaris 2014

When Failure came roaring back to life in 2014, they re-recorded a track from their 1996 masterpiece "Fantastic Planet," a slowed down, extended version of "Solaris."  The new version sounds like being lost in space.  Check it out below, our Daily Jam.

Saturday, June 24, 2023


You gotta love when an album cover gives you pretty much all the information you need on what the music therein sounds like.  And so we have "Expanding Majesty," the latest release from Mammatus.  Trippy, heady, proggy, stoned, psychedelic rock prevails.  Check out the title track below and download the album here from Silver Current Records (the vinyl is sadly already sold out).

Daily Jam - Take, Take, Take

Officially on vacation as of last night.  And it's gonna go by way too fast.  Here's The Helio Sequence with "Take, Take, Take," our Daily Jam.

Woke up this morning to the news that Slowdive are back with new music.  Happy day!  The band's new album, "Everything Is Alive," is out in September.  Pre-order it here from Dead Oceans and let's all listen to the dreamy "Kisses" while we wait for the rest of the thing to drop.


LA band Sprain have a new record coming our way in September, and our first taste, "Man Proposes, God Disposes," is a cool mix of post-punk and post-hardcore noise.  The track is all over the place, spoken lyrics and shouting, shredding guitars, and feels like it might unravel at any second, but somehow manages to keep it all together for its 7-minute runtime.  Check it out below and pre-order the upcoming "The Lamb as Effigy" LP here from The Flenser.

Daily Jam - Untrust Us

Fifteen years on, this song's still a banger.  Listen to Crystal Castles' "Untrust Us" below, our Daily Jam.

Gae Vinci

Here's some wonderful music from the Milan based producer Gae Vinci.  "Lonely Ballads" is a hazy and melancholy mix of electronics, dreampop, shoegaze, and more.  Check out the haunting, album opening "Lonely Ballad" below and get the record here from the artist.

Daily Jam - Your God Is Dead

There are far, far too many fascists and Nazis out there.  We used to understand that.  The excellently named English industrial band Mussolini Headkick sure understood it.  Here's a track from their 1989 album "Themes for Violent Retribution" to kick some Nazi heads to.  Listen to "Your God Is Dead" below, our Daily Jam.

It is unreasonably hot here.  It's making me think twice before doing anything outside today, or tomorrow, or the next few days after that.  Guess i'll just listen to A Certain Ratio.  Here's "Hot Knights," our Daily Jam.

Sigur Rós

Sigur Rós are surprise releasing new album "ÁTTA" tomorrow, and the first single is the kind of beautiful, minimalist neo-classical, and post rock sound we've come to expect from the band, even if it's been a few years since we last heard from them.  Check out "Blóðberg" below and watch the glaciers move.  Look for the album digitally tomorrow from BMG and pre-order the vinyl, due in September, here.

Daily Jam - Group Four

I wonder how much money Massive Attack made when "Teardrop" was used as the theme song to the TV show "House?"  I would guess a pretty penny.  Anyway, here's another song from the "Mezzanine" album.  Listen to "Group Four" below, our Daily Jam.

Wednesday, June 14, 2023

Monday, June 12, 2023


There is something so otherworldly yet simultaneously familiar about the sounds of vaporwave.  It's an odd little genre that pulls half remembered memories of Muzak in public spaces from the ether and mixes it into a lo-fi stew with bits and pieces of synth, reverb, and more.  It's like being in an alien mall, and it's oh so weirdly soothing.  Montreal artist KENMORE Classic just released new album "Woolcowave" which throws in some exotica and library music into the mix as well.  Grab the cassette here from Austin label Mall Talk Collective and listen to "The North Hall" below.

Daily Jam - Drum Gets a Glimpse

I a sucker for genuinely weird albums, and in 2006, i don't know if there was anything released into the wild weirder than Liars' third album "Drum's Not Dead."  It was a difficult album for some people, but i found that multiple listens opened it up and revealed some beautiful layers interwoven into its sonic tapestry.  Check out the tranquil "Drum Gets a Glimpse" below, our Daily Jam.

Saturday, June 10, 2023


UK artist Mat Handley makes electronic music at Pulselovers, and his latest release, "Northern Minimalism 3," serves as a veritable love letter to South Yorkshire, its landscapes and environment, and its culture and sounds.  Post punk vibes abound.  Check out "Shock Cubes" below and order the record here from Castles In Space.

Thursday, June 8, 2023
