April 2021 Mix

Jeff Cubbison

Featuring new tracks, videos, performances & a heavy dose of Machine Girl mayhem

One of our favorite musical acts these days is Machine Girl, the great New York-based duo whose unwieldy blend of digital hardcore, noise, industrial and breakcore has galvanized audiences on record and especially in DIY live settings. We were huge fans of their latest LP, last year’s U-Void Synthesizer, and we’ve included the album track “Fully In It” on our newest monthly YouTube mix.

In addition to that, leading off the playlist is the track “Catch Energy” off the new album from the avant-electronic duo Prolaps – which features Machine Girl’s Matt Stephenson and Kill Antlers’ Bonnie Baxter. Their new LP Ultra Cycle Pt. 1: Vernal Birth – out now via Hausu Mountain – builds on the chaos and maximalism of their sound, with frenetic, escalating dance floor breakbeats feeding into disorienting, shape-defying synth textures.

Elsewhere, we’ve got a heavy dose of drum n’ bass and jungle from veterans like Tech Level 2, Prayer, and Special Request in addition to a healthy smattering of DIY indie rock, psych, and post-punk (plus whatever the hell black midi are smoking!).
