What’s that? You want to know what’s been going in our ears this week, reverberating our cochleas and sending broader vibrations throughout our bodies and by extension our audio-addled souls? That’s a coincidence: here’s this week’s Editor’s Choice.

Expo 70 – Waves in Caverns of Air
Drones always work for me, especially when they are layered upon faded Krautrock bits and psychedelic fragments.
Xander Harris – The Case of Antoine Rogue
Xander Harris just dropped this tune on oraltraditions.fm as part of a 5 disk floppy compilation. Are floppy disks the new tapes?

Struchni – Machine of Decay (WIP)
I have all this aggression in me lately….

TEEN – Come Back
The NYC quartet teamed up with Sonic Boom for their debut LP In Limbo, released this passed August on Washington D.C’s burgeoning Carpark label. Kember’s double-dip lysergic touch is not to be overheard, though ‘Come Back’ veers off into poppier Ronettes territory . . . with a dash of MGMT. Wait: Ronette’s mgmt = Phil Spector. All sleight of brain.
Morning Factory – Anna Logue’s Sleepover
Emotive deep house from Dutch duo Morning Factory, whose EP will be released this month as part of Clone Record’s Jack for Daze throwback series. Rotterdam pleasurecore.

Michael Mayer – Good Times (Smartphone Version)
Co-founder of Cologne’s Kompakt label, Mayer has earned more stripes in the Tech House-world than would fit on the average José’s sleeve. This is the first single off of just-released album Mantasy in a Smartphone version.
Oneohtrix Point Never – Reliquary House
Really handy music to drive your office mates nuts. Though Daniel is always some steps ahead.
