In the interest of making it easier for everyone to catch up, every Friday we present The Lowdown, a weekly wrap-up of the top 10 tidbits from our site. Read more »

Leaving Records Readies Sprawling New Album from M. Geddes Gengras

The "signature sound" of Matthewdavid's Leaving Records imprint has been joyously hard to pin down since its inception, with the label anchoring itself in the world of abstract beats as much as it is unafraid to venture into lopsided noise, refracted house, musique concrete, and, in the case of a forthcoming record from M.

Watch a Dark Short Film Inspired by The Body's Haxan Cloak-Produced Album for RVNG
