A languid, irreverent album, Teal Clods from Tim's House balances between psychedelic and psychotic. With lo-fi vocals, tambourines and steady rhythms to keep things marching on, Dark Meat has released a collection of tracks from various points in their past. Now you, too, can enjoy the fruits of their time spent at Tim's house with a lot of free time and a 4-track recorder. Not for the faint of heart, squares, or anyone offended by strong language.
According to their liner notes, "In terms of our song-oriented material, that's where we were at our freest, weirdest, most acid-fried and experimental. And shakiest and funniest and most fucked-up too. But, hey, that beans-and-rice combo of fearlessly pushing it and pathetically caving-in was always our thing: musically, socially, financially, psychically. You best believe it was by design, too, Jack."
Tune in below or listen to the whole album here:

Straight from the underground (literally, figuratively and musically), this new compilation is a bit of a head-scratcher but definitely intriguing for its topic alone: fungi! Nenormalizm Records has compiled a 21-track long album and released it into the wild: the Fungi Compilation. Each track, by a different artist, is named after something related to mushrooms - from colloquial names like "Destroying Angel" to the mycelium itself (the 'root system' of filaments that transfer nutrients and where mushrooms sprout from). If you like a micro-dose of science with your glitchy electronic tunes, this is the compilation for you! If it's not your thing, there's a veritable smorgasbord of other music to check out in our collection. If you're curious, take a bite out of the sample tracks below:

Toy Sounds, Vol. 1 is like espresso for your headphones (or at least a sugar buzz)! This jaunty electronic album will scratch your mid-tempo itch and sports a few crispy samples here and there to liven it up even more. Build-ups, bouncy beats, and bubbly bass bump along while high-end drips and drops keep things moving at a quick pace. This belongs in every video game enthusiast's collection or anyone looking for fast-paced electronic tracks to keep them company at work or at play.
The latest release to FMA from the prolific Chicagoan, Captive Portal, is the 19th album he's added to FMA - we can't wait to hear what he comes up with next!
