Music For Headphones - Life In Mono

Mixing the heady sounds of 60's psychedelia and vintage Krautrock, Life in Mono keeps that motorik pulse of driving The Autobaun.  OK it's not exactly Kraftwerk but this is a fun little album.

Listen on their bandcamp page.

Space Is Only Noise

Pitchfork gave a smashing review to Nicolas Jarr's spaced-out futuristic electro pop album Space Is Only Noise.  Hot and Heavy worthy for certain.
