ADULT. - Becoming Undone

After a quarter century of nearly nonstop activity, dystopian Detroit synth-punk institution ADULT. have perfected a strain of stylistic cohesion in the album format, “but for this we wanted something that’s falling apart.” Becoming Undone, the 9th official full-length by co-founders Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller, explicitly succeeds in this aim, simultaneously rejecting and reflecting the planetary discord that inspired it.

Michael Zodorozny - Other Side

Other Side is the first solo album of Michael Zodorozny, New York post-punk icon and founding member of Crash Course in Science. The side he shows on the album is a rougher and more personal one.

The seven tracks, including a feisty remix by The Hacker, are dark and thrusting with an EBM and industrial feel. Home-made and self-invented instruments complete Michael’s specific, extraordinary sound. Other Side was produced by Matia Simovich aka INHALT. Michael himself painted and designed the cover artwork.

Le Cliché - Vicarious Life

To live vicariously is to experience the world in our minds through imaginative or sympathetic participation in the experiences of another person. As our daily lives become more and more interwoven with the Internet, and especially with social media, our identity construction and portrayal, as well as our interaction with others is increasingly taking place online.

This trend became even more obvious during the COVID19 pandemic when we spent long periods of time stuck at home, cut off from direct contact with others. Faced with the impossibility of doing the things we were so used to pre-pandemic, many of us began to seek out ways of experiencing the world vicariously, through the experiences of others.

Lockdowns · social distancing · stay at home · exercise alone · buy online · work from home! The Covid19 pandemic and the resulting lockdowns set in place the ideal conditions for vicarious consumption to flourish.
