FMTM’s latest, Little Known Frequencies (Dim Mak), is frankly a little boring. Just because you are awesome at playing your instrument doesn’t mean you rock. Read my review here.
I’ve been talking about Wavves here for a bit, but the record is finally out. Read my review here. I’m digging it, but I will admit I haven’t listened in weeks. Perhaps there’s a lack of staying power…
Grandmaster Flash is back with his first studio album in a long time, The Bridge (Strut Records). Full of guest MC’s, domestic and international, it’s a worthy effort (despite what some other reviews are saying…) Read my take here.
Any Anticon fans in the house? Over there, in the back? Odd Nosdam’s got a new album coming out this March, a soundtrack for an Element Skateboards film. Read my review here.
Listen: Fly Mode
Bibio’s latest, Vignetting the Compost (Mush), is out now. His mix of electronic and field recordings is similar to Boards of Canada, but he leaves the beats behind. Read my review here.
I recently interviewed M. Ward for a story for Spinner.com. Read it here. He wouldn’t give up much about the progress of the forthcoming She & Him record, but it’s a bit early for that.
