Producer Lapsed teams up with turntablist Nonnon for his third full-length, and the combination produces an album that's somewhere between the triangle of glitch, electronic, and hip-hop, with an equal dose of machine-made sounds and organic scratching.

For his latest release, the über-prolific Daedelus unleashes a live set from his July 2007 appearance at L.A. weekly Low End Theory. Armed with his monome, he drops one banging track after another of glitch-hop, avant-rap, IDM, and numerous other styles, all mixed and mastered by Low End Theory resident Daddy Kev.
Formerly just the antics of Charlie Salas-Humara, Panther is now comprised of Humara and drummer Joe Kelly, and the addition of another member has taken the band into surprising directions. The forthcoming 14 KT God still bears some of the clipped, falsetto vocals and screaming beats that made Panther famous, but also sees more traditional, dare we say melancholy, song structures.
Armed with synthesizers and other electronics, Faunts originally created the tracks on their new EP for three short films. Compiled into a 40-minute release, the tracks create a moody, cinematic landscape that should set imaginative minds racing.
The self-titled debut album from Alberta-based band The Whitsundays calls upon the 1960s for inspiration, and comes off equal parts psychedelia, garage, and vintage organ rock. The England-based band has a definite talent for combining musical sensibilities of the past with a present day feel.
A member of The Hidden Cameras, Toronto-based Laura Barrett steps into the solo spotlight with her Earth Sciences EP, with stunning results. The appeal of her songwriting lies not only in her unique voice, which pitches and soars with impressive ease, but also in her use of the kalimba, an African thumb piano on which she plucks ethereal yet haunting melodies.
Stefan Németh, co-founder of experimental label Mosz and member of groups Radian and Lokai, delivers his first solo album under his given name. The aptly titled Film is a collection of tracks originally made for various experimental films and art installations, now repurposed into a proper full-length album. Film is a blend of electronics and acoustics, and features work from members of Radian, Trapist, and others.
