Andrew Matson appears in the following:

First Listen: The Alchemist & Oh No, 'Welcome To Los Santos'

Sunday, April 12, 2015

Sprawling over 14 songs and two dozen vocal acts, Welcome To Los Santos still holds together as a diverse, modern West Coast rap album, complete with heavy rock, electro and funk influences.


First Listen: Shabazz Palaces, 'Lese Majesty'

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Lese Majesty is MC and producer Ishmael Butler's most relentlessly noncommercial chapter yet. No hits, no singles; just raw, graceful tunes from the inventive former leader of Digable Planets.


First Listen: Clipping., 'CLPPNG'

Sunday, June 01, 2014

Let the band and album names be a warning for this industrial act featuring copious rapping. You are about to receive rough treatment, heavily stylized.


First Listen: Raz Simone, 'Cognitive Dissonance'

Sunday, March 02, 2014

This swinging-for-the-fences album feels like a plea for connection and sounds like a brooding hit.


It's A Process: Mount Kimbie On Making Their New Album

Friday, May 24, 2013

The British duo struggled, broke through and got by with a little help from its friends.
