Nick Waterhouse – Time’s All Gone [7.8]

It’s an inherently human quality to feel you were born in the wrong decade; It’s a thought you get when popular music doesn’t seem to give you the chills, clothes don’t fit just right, and culture seems like a meaningless wash.

Dub Trio – IV [8.0]

  Brooklyn-based instrumental masterminds, Dub Trio, have dropped their fourth album, IV, a nine-track release loaded with chunky drop-tuned guitar riffs, experimental noise, and tasteful effect work.
