Hey there music lover! You like new stuff? Great! You’ve stumbled into the perfect corner of the internet.  Each week all sorts of audiolicious goodies are unleashed onto the masses and this is where they come to be judged. I’ll tell ya what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s a waste of your precious time. So strap on your headphones and let’s take a ride!

The Big News

So the big news this week was supposed to be the new Izzy Agalea record Digital Distortion. But that whole thing got pushed back again for some reason or another. Frankly, I don’t care if it ever gets released because I’m never gonna intentionally listen to it anyway. So the new BIG NEWS, which should be bigger news anyway, is the new Avett Brothers release, True Sadness. I know, I know, weren’t we all just waiting for the Avett’s to release a record called True Sadness  or Infinite Desire or something like that? It’s the most Avett Brothers title ever. It’s even more Avett Brothers than if they had named it The Avett Brothers. This three star review from Slant (ugh, really?) sums up exactly how I’ve felt about the Avett’s since their teaming up with Rick Rubin in 2009: “Whereas a decade ago, the presence of an electric guitar would have been a bold departure from their austere traditionalism, their latest, True Sadness, is full of squiggly synths, bubblegum melodies, drum machines, and syrupy Hollywood strings.”

Hips & Hops

Dope rapper from Chicago Lil Durk unleashes his anticipated sophomore effort 2X.

And DJ Shadow is back with The Mountain Will Fall, his first since 2011.

Miscy Discy’s

The latest from French housers Cassius, Ibifornia.

Under the Radar insists that the new Deerhoof, The Magic, is a “scruffier, more serrated affair” than most of the San Francisco outfit’s work as of late.

Hot Hot Heat will be the final album from Canadian veterans Hot Hot Heat. It’s the band’s first in six years.


This is the part where we say goodbye to those who’ve hit their last high note. Rock on and rest in peace, brothers and sisters.

Folkstress Chayito Valdez.


Prince Be of PM Dawn.


English ragga man Tenor Fly.


Henry McCullogh of Spooky Tooth.

My Recommendation

Plastic House on Base of Sky is the new one from Kayo Dot. You have been warned.

Next Week!!

Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from: Blink 182!
