Self TitledMatt & Kim
All tracks from Self Titled on iheartcomix.
Yea Yeah [MP3]
     

No More Long Years [MP3]
     

“Brooklyn duo/couple Matt and Kim can’t stop exuding energy—they can only hope to contain it, all while gleefully messing with the usual formula in their debut album.”—iheartcomix

SanDj Klock
Theme [MP3]
     

“One of Japan’s most celebrated underground heros, DJ Klock drops his first U.S. recoding. This is art/hip-hop, experiments in minimilism, maximilism and general turntable weirdness.”—Ropeadope

SJ Esau
Cat Track (He Has No Balls) [MP3]
     

“For SJ Esau’s Anticon debut, the Bristol-based bedroom virtuoso continues his masterful balance of sonic manipulation and songcraft across 12 alternately expansive and explosive tracks. You’ll find Wrong Faced Cat Feed Collapse on the rarely tread common ground between Slint, Arab Strap, Fog, Sonic Youth and Mogwai (with Fennesz and Jim O’Rourke lurking in the shadows), which is to say, this is an album that successfully bridges genre-less explorations into sound to detailed composition, solo meanderings to inspired collaboration, a sense of humor to a sense of melancholy, and the listener to a unique world that could only be inhabited and operated by SJ Esau himself.”—Anticon
