The Caretaker - "Bedded Deep In Long Term Memory" Video

This is a perfect Sunday afternoon record. The Caretaker

The album is a collage of edits of 78-RPM records that are inspired by a recent study that Alzheimers patients are "better able to remember new verbal information when it is provided in the context of music even when compared to healthy, older adults."

And it really kinda feels like it sounds. Dark yet uplifting.

Tyler, the Creator releases new summer mix

How bout a new mix from Tyler, the Creator!

Curren$y - "Smoke Break" Video

Check out the new Curren$y video "Smoke Break" from his new album Weekend at Burnie's

Marissa Nadler sings on Cloud Seeding debut out today

If you missed this Cloud Seeding release today, this is what you've missed: It's a single featuring Marissa Nadler and Cloud Seeding main man Kevin Serra. It's more than awesome. It's pure in its reining in of both honesty and hopelessness and yet polluted with its dark space-like, dreary, dream-like soundscape. This brilliant single will have you begging for a full length that can pull you up from its gorgeous despair.

Listen & Stream "Ink Jar" and " Unquestioning" here: Buy them here via iTunes, Bandcamp and Amazon
