What songs, rarities, or videos would need to be included or excluded for you to break open your wallet and buy a colossal compendium of music? Leave your wishlists down below.
Other headlines covered on today’s episode include the dates for Coachella 2014, whether System of a Down will record an album without Serj Tankian, and Sami pays tribute to The Doors’ Ray Manzarek.

Wes Eisold describes the new Cold Cave A-side as, “Cool nihilism. Existential, groovy, psychedelia.” I think the former term fits “Black Boots” pretty well, insofar as it means anything at all. The latter, though? Sorry, but “existential, groovy, psychedelia” this is not. Maybe “DeLillo-esque, urban, goth”? Or “violent, subterranean, death-rock”? Or “pale, rigid, post-punk”? I dunno, I think I’m being thrown by the word “groovy” or something. Anyway, Eisold is back with another self-released 7″, which appears to be his chosen form for new Cold Cave material at present. It’s a good look for him: Such “bleak, focused, minimalism” is perhaps better appreciated in small doses. Listen.
Hear Daft Punk

Didn’t like Random Access Memories? There’s hope for you yet.
Daft Punk‘s latest album didn’t appeal to everyone, but don’t give up just yet as the Japanese release of Random Access Memories had a bonus track missing from the regular album release. Entitled ‘Horizon’ it’s possibly the least pop moment on the record, and without guest vocalist or even vocoders the duo recline in a haze of 80s-era Tangerine Dream lens flare.
It’s a fitting end to an album that’s not afraid to wear its yacht rock influences on its sleeve, and we’re kind of miffed it didn’t make it onto the international LP.
Take a listen here. [via Consequence of Sound]

The enigmatic Californian rap producer Madlib is exactly the type of person to make a new track, put it on a 7″ single, only make 300 copies of that single, and then only sell those copies to the people who show up at one specific show. His new two-track single Rock Conducta is only available at a forthcoming San Francisco show, and one of songs is “The Mad March,” which chops up a funky marching band stomp into a time-stretching ripple. Listen below.

As far as we know, the great inward-looking indie singer-songwriter Cass McCombs has no plans to drop a new album on us anytime soon. But this summer, he will release a split 7″ with the veteran folk-music outsider Michael Hurley. McCombs’s contribution is a warm and buoyant shuffle called “Three Men Sitting On A Hollow Log,” and you can hear it below.
Listen to Cold Cave channel Joy Division on their new song
May 21, 2013 3:13pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Having just returned from an East Asian tour that took Wesley
Eisold and his band Cold Cave through Japan, Korea, China,
Thailand, and of all places Nepal, Eisold offers up another one-off
single with sweet & dour “Black Boots”. The Casio
drum track and the, ahem, cavernous vocal echo are a nice homage to
the Joy Division sound, and the bare-bones track does enough to
carry Eisold’s anxious croons about bodies, death, sex, and
agoraphobia. Listen to the art-rock, dark-wave single

UK quartet Syd Arthur playing NYC in June (dates, streams)
May 21, 2013 3:01pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Prog/psych/folk quartet Syd Arthur hail from Canterbury, England and released their debut album, On and On, last year, which got four stars in Mojo. While the album has its share of time signature left turns and trippy elements, pop songs are at its core -- with some nice jazzy moments too. One of the band's distinct sonic elements is violinist Raven Bush, whose aunt is Kate Bush. Paul Weller is also a fan. Maybe you saw them at this year's SXSW? You you can can stream a few tracks below and the whole record's up on Spotify.
As mentioned, Syd Arthur will be coming to the U.S. next month
for a show at Mercury Lounge on June 18 with
Celestial Shore. Tickets for that show are still
available. It's their only North American show, but all upcoming
dates (mostly in the UK) are listed below.

Apologies for those who already know, but before “Crazy” and “Fuck You” and The Voice, Cee-Lo was one fourth of the ridiculously great Atlanta rap group Goodie Mob, whose first two albums are indisputable essential classics and whose third album is kind of sneaky-great. Last year, the group reunited on (of course) The Voice and released a somewhat perplexing new song called “Is That You God.” They’ve now announced plans for a full-on reunion album with the kinda-hilarious title Age Against The Machine, and its new single is a pretty great piece of stomping circus-funk called “Special Education.” Janelle Monáe shows up to supply a showily art-rocking hook. Listen to it below.

Gone, but not forgotten; Romanthony was one of the greatest vocalists that the dance floor has ever seen. When Dj/producer Tommie Sunshine heard the news – he couldn’t stop crying. But when the tears subsided, Sunshine reflected on what made the loss so devastating. Via The Huffington Post:
