KXSF Album of the Month. March 2019. By Bob Newman. Primus vocalist/bassist Les Claypool and musician/scion-of-music-legends Sean Lennon, perhaps one of the more unlikely creative pairings of recent years, have returned with a follow-up LP to Monolith of Phobos, their 2016 collaborative debut.  As with the earlier long-player, the new South of Reality (KXSF’s album of the month for April […]

KXSF Album of the Month. March 2019. Eton Alive, the latest release (and fifth full-length studio LP) from Nottingham, England’s Sleaford Mods, is the most interesting and engaging work to date from Jason Williamson (vocals and lyrics) and Andrew Fearn (laptop and music). It finds the duo further developing the minimalist electronic post-punk, rap-adjacent sound […]

After her acclaimed collaboration with Kurt Vile and The Sea Lice, she releases “Tell Me How You Really Feel,” her third full-length album. This […]

KXSF Album of the Month. October 2018. The KXSF album of the month is the third full-length in as many years from Terry. The first two LPs from this Melbourne band, whose four members are/were in a number of other combos (including such notables as Dick Diver, Constant Mongrel, Total Control, and Primo) were winsome […]

KXSF Album of the Month. September 2018. This month’s choice for our KXSF Album of the Month (#KXSFAOTM) was a rather easy one. That is, because during the first hours of the month, IDLES’ highly anticipated follow-up to their debut,  2017’s Brutalism was dropped. Joy as an Act of Resistance, which just by its name […]
