The Hate My Day Jobs – Mouth on Fire

The Hate My Day Jobs – Mouth on Fire

Ms. Mitzi’s been on my ass for MONTHS to talk about this record and she’s been right to ride me ragged because this motherfucker is so good, so tight, so goddamn OUTTASIGHT! it makes me want to punch my dick in the face. And that’s saying something because anyone who...

Cosmic Psychos – Cum the Raw Prawn

Cosmic Psychos – Cum the Raw Prawn

All the old ladies in my neighborhood grow lilies. I fucking hate lilies. I didn’t used to. Hell, I used to think they were lovely and fragrant and the perfect way to center a bouquet to say, “Thank you so much for the sex, young lady. You are pretty and...

Flesh World – The Wild Animals in My Life (in pictures)

Author’s Note: It’s been a long, lost weekend. Two or three, I suppose. Teeth out. Pills in. Grind, suffer, succumb. Repeat. It’s been a time for reflection. A time to reconsider the skin and the way I’m spent in it. A somber seance, in flashes but also a celebration of...

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – The High Country

Death Grips – Jenny Death

Death Grips – Jenny Death

You want to talk about Death Grips? Sure. Why not? Fuckit. Let’s talk about Death Grips because lord knows there’s nothing else to talk about other than these insouciant actionists and their willfully convoluted narrative of filth, riches, fashion, acclaim, assholishness, suicide, resurrection, bondage, domination, cut-up Sea Org theory, synaesthetic...

Fred Thomas – All Are Saved

Fred Thomas – All Are Saved

This weekend, they will bury my dog in Phoenicia. At the very least, they will scatter her ashes along the soft creek that runs behind Humminbird Lane with her should-have-been Labrador lover, Larry and her would-have-been tripedal cat nemesis, Jackie-Do. I imagine that there will be much weeping from the...
