  1. Kikagaku Moyo are one of the most consistently rewarding psych bands going, and they've proven it again today with a contribution to the Sub Pop Singles Club that shows off their eclectic range and hypnotic power. More »View the full article
  2. The Atlanta rapper Young Nudy has come up rapping on the bleary, chaotic beats of ascendant producer Pi'erre Bourne. Nudy was the first artist of any note to work with Bourne, and last year, the two of them teamed up for the collaborative album Sli'merre. At the time, I mostly heard Nudy as … More »View the full article
  3. The Sony Xperia 1 II. It would have been Mobile World Congress this week if not for the panic over the coronavirus—so get ready for plenty of news from the world of international smartphones. First up, we have a reminder that Sony is still out there making cellular telephones, and last night it announced the "Sony Xperia 1 II." Wait, the what?! The "Sony Xperia One Two?" Actually, this is branded similarly to the Sony cameras, so just as the "Sony A7 III" is pronounced "Sony Alpha seven mark three," this thing is apparently the "Sony Xperia One Mark Two." Wild. Like most of the phones that will be announced this week, this is a flagship 2020 smartphone with the Snapdragon 865 and 5G, though Sony opted to only include mid-band 5G and not mmWave. There is a 6.5-inch, 3840×1644 OLED display, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4000mAh battery. The phone is IP68 rated, and it has a MicroSD slot and wireless charging. It may also be the only flagship smartphone in 2020 with a headphone jack. Like every other Sony smartphone, the design is very square and rather handsome looking. While the rest of the industry is all about maximizing display space with camera notches and other display blemishes, Sony has a pair of symmetrical bezels on the top and bottom that house front-facing stereo speakers and the front camera. The combination of bezels and a 21:9 display makes this one of the tallest smartphones on the market, with measurements of 166mm × 72mm × 7.9mm.

  6. Last year, Jenny Lewis' On the Line was one of the best albums of the year. It was a big album with big goals and it paid off. Thus, when Lewis went to Washington, D.C. to perform a set at NPR's Tiny Desk, it showed just how great of a songwriter she is with two of the three… View the full article
  7. How many good things can you stuff onto one track? Let's try four. Today, 100 gecs are releasing their "ringtone" remix featuring Charli XCX, Rico Nasty, and Kero Kero Bonito. The all-star weirdo pop team-up was teased a few weeks back and it's part of a forthcoming remix album of 100 gecs' 1000 … More »View the full article

  9. "Bib" is a good name for the Omaha band Bib. It's a good name because they sound like they're drooling all over themselves. Bib's music is a sloppy, raw, intentionally ugly take on hardcore punk. There's a lot of murky old-school garage rock in what Bib do, and there's plenty of unstable and tape-hissy Japanese … More »View the full article

  13. The Roots have been a Philadelphia institution for decades. ?uestlove and Black Thought, the two original members who are still in the band, formed the Roots in 1987, when they were both students and a Philly performing-arts high school. They played their first show -- not counting street-corner busking -- at a 1989 talent show, … More »View the full article

  15. We like to have a bit of fun at Jack White's expense around here, but I genuinely love seeing him use his considerable music-biz leeway to spotlight music he loves. For instance, next month White's label Third Man Records will release a previously shelved LP from Detroit punk band the Pathetx, marked with … More »View the full article
  16. The two driving forces behind the Los Angeles band Momma, Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten, are going to college in New York and New Orleans, which means that, at least for right now, they reconvene in between semesters and communicate online to put together their twangy rock songs that have a fantastical edge. They released … More »View the full article

  18. No Age is back with their latest single, "Turned to String." Staying true to their noise rock sound, the track is the first release since their 2018 album, Snares Like a Haircut. With the rolling guitars and bouncy tempo, "Turned to String" is a great teaser on what's come on their forthcoming album, Goons… View the full article
  19. The Native Cats are a duo from the Tasmanian town of Hobart who've been at it for a dozen years now, making noise alongside likeminded Australian underground fixtures like UV Race and Total Control's Mikey Young.

  25. Enlarge / Most open source projects are vastly more restrictive with their trademarks than their code. OpenBSD's Puffy, Linux's Tux, and the FSF's Meditating Gnu are among the few FOSS logos that can easily and legally be remixed and reused for simple illustrative purposes. (credit: OpenBSD, Free Software Foundation, Larry Ewing, Seattle Municipal Archives) Most people have at least heard of open source software by now—and even have a fairly good idea of what it is. Its own luminaries argue incessantly about what to call it—with camps arguing for everything from Free to Libre to Open Source and every possible combination of the above—but the one thing every expert agrees on is that it's not open source (or whatever) if it doesn't have a clearly attributed license. You can't just publicly dump a bunch of source code without a license and say "whatever—it's there, anybody can get it." Due to the way copyright law works in most of the world, freely available code without an explicitly declared license is copyright by the author, all rights reserved. This means it's just plain unsafe to use unlicensed code, published or not—there's nothing stopping the author from coming after you and suing for royalties if you start using it. The only way to actually make your code open source and freely available is to attach a license to it. Preferably, you want a comment with the name and version of a well-known license in the header of every file and a full copy of the license available in the root folder of your project, named LICENSE or LICENSE.TXT. This, of course, raises the question of which license to use—and why? Read 39 remaining paragraphs | Comments View the full article
