Panda Bear – Mr. Noah

Animal Collective’s Panda Bear give us a taste of his forthcoming album.

Girl Talk and Freeway – “Suicide” (Remix) ft. A$AP Ferg

Girl Talk and Freeway drop an animated video featuring a load of Simpsons-esque characters for the song “Suicide,” and that’s not all: This is also a remix of the song, featuring a verse from none other than A$AP Ferg right at the start of the track. Freeway’s verse is fresh as well. The beat doesn’t seem like it’s been altered in any significant way, but it’s still a great revisit of the Broken Ankles cut, which you should download right here.

Gnaw Their Tongues – Wir Essen Seelen In Der Nacht

On November 1, Dutch black metal outfit Gnaw Their Tongues will put out a new full-length titled Night of Consecration. In the meantime, they’ve thrown this EP of four experimental pieces up on their Bandcamp. It’s a really thick mix of drone, dark ambient, baroque classical, and black metal elements and makes for a quite riveting listen. I don’t imagine it’s an accurate representation of the nearing full-length’s direction, but it’s nevertheless a direction I’d be interested in seeing them pursue further.

Clockwork Indigo (Flatbush Zombies/The Underachievers) – Clockwork Indigo EP

The Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies team up for a collaborative EP.

Stream the Clockwork Indigo EP (Flatbush Zombies / The Underachievers)

2014 is ending off with a bang, I tell ya! In an effort to promote their current tour together, previously praised New York underground hip hop titans Flatbush Zombies and the Underachievers have dropped a collaborative EP under the name Clockwork Indigo. It’s got five tracks, which I encourage you to stream via the embed above.

Orbweaver – Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon

Try out this new EP from Florida technical death metal band Orbweater. The title certainly is a mouthful: Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon. You’re in for some fast, dizzying, interstellar guitars on this one. The playing is consistently flashy, but it usually only adds up into making these songs weirder and weirder. Orbweaver’s music may be grim, but also sounds like it takes place in the deepest recesses of space. Imagine the bloodiest slasher flick taking place on a stranded spaceship, and you’ll be most of the way there.

Stream Neuralnomicon above, and grab a vinyl copy of it here.

The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die – Between Bodies

Previously praised Connecticut emo revivalists The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die have a new release out titled Between Bodies.

It’s a collaborative project that features a number of passionate spoken word performances from poet Chris Zizzamia. Sometimes the instrumentals underneath his words compliment him well, sometimes they don’t, but this is still a pretty good listen. Skip right to the song “Thanks” if you’re looking for a really wonderful climax! Give it a try via the widget embedded above.

Milwaukee Banks – “Pluto Bounce”

Check out this video for “Pluto Bounce,” which one of the handful of cuts to come off the new self-titled EP from Australia cloud rap duo Milwaukee Banks. Apparently, this video was shot on about 10 minutes worth of infrared film, so nearly everything in the video has this surreal red hue to it. Insane!

The music of Milwaukee Banks is quite psychedelic as well. I’m loving the vast atmosphere, subdued flows, serene synths, and resonant bass. It reminds me a bit of what A$AP Rocky was doing when he initially hit with tracks like “Peso,” but Milwaukee Banks actually delivers on the more artsy implications of the cloud rap sound.

Bölzer – Soma

Swiss death metal outfit Bölzer drop another EP of grimy, blood-caked, old school death metal.

Armand Hammer – Furtive Movements

Armand Hammer drops a post-album EP of fan-pleasing odds ‘n’ ends.
