Preview The New Kenton Slash Demon EP

Clips of Kenton Slash Demon’s EP “Daemon” are now up on SoundCloud. I’m excited to see that one of my favorites, Axel Boman, has both B Side remixes. Get pumped for the full release this April.

Best New Music: Jatoma

I’ve been really getting into “enchanting electronica” lately (term from Ari Stein discussing Walls and Caribou in his review).
