Toro y Moi’s early 2019 tape Soul Trash gets an official release + short film
Toro y Moi releases a proper version of his stellar + very vibey January 2019 dropbox/instagram tape drop Soul Trash, featuring what Chaz says are "the same songs but presented in a more hi-fi setting". Listen to the whole tape + watch the Lanéya Billingsley-directed film below, and download the new version of Soul Trash on Chaz's bandcamp.
premiere: stream Exit Someone’s Dry Your Eyes tape
Montreal's Exit Someone, a group we fell in love with almost a year ago on the strength of their wonderful debut single, follows up a great recent non-EP jam and a low-key beautiful Robert Palmer cover with their first official physical release, out today on Atelier Ciseaux...
George Clanton’s 100% Electronica getting cassette release; hear unreleased track “Make You Cry”
One of our favorite records of last year is getting a limited cassette release this month, complete with a handful of unreleased tracks and alternate versions on the b-side, courtesy of Greenville, SC, tape label Plastic Response. Check the wavy "abandoned" song "Make You Cry" — not to be confused with the awesome "It Makes the Babies Want to Cry", which gets a re-wor
Caroline No – why are you there

Recorded with a handheld recorder, and out now "on a hot green cassette in a hot pink case, extra special put together to be beautiful." The group apparently has anot
download Cindy Lee’s MALENKOST tape for free
We mentioned the other day that Cindy Lee (Patrick Flegel, formerly of Women) had an extremely limited new cassette release out on Vancouver label Isolated Now Waves; that tape has since sold out, and the band is now giving the record away as a free download — along with their even better Act of Tenderness LP — over on their geocities page. Listen to another haunted lullaby from MALENKOST + downlo
Cindy Lee - Always Lovers
Cindy Lee, the experimental pop project from former Women guitarist/singer Pat Flegel, follows up one of the best albums of 2015 with MALENKOST, an 11-song cassette release on Vancouver label Isolated Now Waves. Every bit as dark and harrowing as Act of Tenderness — if anything it's even more intensely noisy and abrasive at times — with the light from Flegel's distant but timeless pop melodies see
video: White Poppy – “I Had a Dream”
More from the latest round of quality releases to emerge from L.A.'s Not Not Fun camp: here's the title track from the debut cassette from Vancouver's Crystal Dorval, aka White Poppy, out now on the label. Dorval's sweet + blurry submerged melodies occasionally recall a slightly poppier Grouper, as heard on this appropriately gauzy clip for the tape's closing lullaby, "I Had a Dream... Read M
