Bonus beats for a world that lives technology rather than just using it.
Power Inc. Vol. 1 + Vol. 2 (Tackhead) (2016/06/13 09:00)

City: Works Of Fiction (Jon Hassell) (2016/04/01 10:00)

Does humor belong in music? Yes, but even if it didn't, you're getting it anyway.
Execution Ground (Painkiller) (2014/05/26 10:00)
When John Zorn and Bill Laswell joined forces, the results were nothing short of seismic.

Israel's best-known contribution to "post-punk" takes the bad taste out of my mouth left by the term.
Improvisation (Derek Bailey) (2013/06/09 10:00)
