MIXTAPE: Christmas.

December 22, 2011


As far as I’m concerned, Christmas is the best time of year. There’s not a person alive whose argument can beat gifts, coma-inducing amounts of food and booze and the general fuzzy, cozy feeling I get whenever I see a Christmas tree. So with that in mind, we’ve put together twenty songs to complement this, […]

JJ DOOM – ‘Rhymin’ Slang’ (Dave Sitek Remix)

December 17, 2011


We already hooked y’all up with DOOM’s Thom Yorke/Johnny Greenwood collaboration off of Lex Records upcoming tenth anniversary compilation, Complex, but it turns out that won’t be his only appearance on the release. The mercurial MC came together with producer Jneiro Jarel as, what else, JJ DOOM, resulting in ‘Rhymin’ Slang’, which Dave Sitek of TV […]

Tech Out the Dresser 10: Best of ’11

December 16, 2011


2011 has been an interesting year for rap; it was the year Odd Future blew up and Tyler, the Creator became annoying, the year Harlem-born-but-not-Harlem-sounding ASAP Rocky signed a massive 3 million dollar deal with Sony and the year that the grinding, dissonant Zach Hill-related Death Grips smashed their way into the rap sphere’s consciousness. […]

D’s Top 20 Releases of 2011

December 16, 2011


Yeah, so this is what the entire year boils down to. Sorry it took us so long to post these lists, I’m pretty sure regular-ish posting will now resume. 2011 was pretty alright and some people put out some radical tunes. I struggled a fair bit to order the top 5, but I think I […]

J’s Top 20 Releases of 2011

December 16, 2011


This was easily the toughest thing I have had to this year, and i’m not including studying for my finals OR being banned from playing PS3 for a week.  This year has kinda been a haze of rad music and rad times, so figuring out what actually came out this year, let alone putting it in a […]

Pygmy Lush/Turboslut – Split LP

December 9, 2011


I’m really not a fan of Pg.99, and the same can be said for a host of other so-called “seminal” screamo bands (see Saetia, Chokehold, Jeromes Dream, etc.), so you can imagine my skepticism when it turned out that, after the band broke up, some of its members formed Pygmy Lush: a band alternating between […]

Alcest – ‘Autre Temps’

December 8, 2011


So everyone’s favourite shoegazing black metallers Alcest are set to release a new record entitled Les Voyages De L’Âme on January 6th of next year, and suffice to say, I’m excited. 2009’s Écailles de Lune was one of the best things to come out that year, and the same goes for 2007’s beautiful Souvenirs D’un Autre Monde. A mere mention of […]
