We don’t throw the term “legend” around too much, but today it’s very appropriate—Keith Morris, founder and former lead singer of Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and OFF! joins us to talk about his career, his music, his life, his unique perspective, and of course his record collection.

We go deep on this one and share information on Keith’s new autobiography My Damage, a fascinating read through his life and the early days of punk rock. Plus a short record-nerd tutorial on Black Flag and SST’s first record, “Nervous Breakdown”—early pressings fetch several hundred dollars. Today we share what you need to know to spot one.

Code Elektro’s sequel to the critically acclaimed debut, Superstrings is available via Iceberg Records. The title of the new album is Wolf.

The music is characterized by the use of synthesizers and sound design. It sounds similar to the soundtracks of movies like Blade Runner and TRON: Legacy. However, it also takes a step forward to create something new. The previous record, Superstrings was well received by critics and audiences worldwide and was nominated for a GAFFA Award for Best Danish Electronic Album 2015.

The Vinyl Guide’s “Vinyl Artist Series” showcases new artists who have committed themselves to the vinyl record format. These are totally independent artists who wish to share their music and hopefully encourage listeners to pick up their music on vinyl.

Matt Chamberlain & Brian Haas – Prometheus Risen | Prometheus Risen is a free-flowing, no-holds-barred, in-the-moment encounter based on daredevil instincts, a shared arranger’s aesthetic, and mutual trust. While all the keyboard parts, Moog bass lines, ambient washes, textures, loops, and huge groove playing on the kit might suggest a precisely-crafted project involving multiple layers of overdubbing and tons of post-production work, the entire album was in fact done live in the studio. Together on Prometheus Risen, Chamberlain and Haas present spontaneous composition at its finest.

In 1997 Failure had it all; a growing legion of fans, a community of supportive artists, and a fantastic creative effort in the album Fantastic Planet. Then…they broke up.

Nearly 20 years later they’ve mended fences, personally and creatively, and began the next chapter releasing the album The Heart is a Monster, and now touring the US and beyond. Today we talk to Kellii Scott of the band about the arc of the group and their recent return to studio and stage.
