Death After LifeDeath After Life, Thug Entrancer's debut for Software Recording Co. is
a deliberately realized collection of dance experimentation and hybridized
electronic music with narrow stylistic precedents. It's also a gripping, somber
tide formed from the gravitational pull of an artist's amble through unknown
Ryan McRyhew's footing as a creative lynchpin in the Denver DIY
electronic music scene shued to the other world and beat of the South side
of Chicago in 2011. McRyhew's new home allowed him secluded time and
space to create in-depth and unconditional music as Thug Entrancer. The
move also provided McRyhew direct access to Chicago's dance music history
and the groundbreaking works being crafted in bedrooms and blasted on
speakers throughout his neighborhood.
A summation of varied approaches to electronic music, Thug Entrancer's
multiverse is not dissimilar to other Software artists (Slava and Huerco S.,
for example). McRyhew draws inuence from pioneering electronic and
experimental composers who placed an emphasis on extended development
and technique, alongside early analog dance producers who went all-out and
all-in with little more than a TR-808 in their arsenal.
Death After Life is comprised of eight chapters drawn from the album title,
each numbered I through VIII. These portions underscore a pitch-dark
motif thread throughout the album's fty minutes. Death After Life I is
whittled and icy - long echoed claps and panned sawtooth shapes swelter
around the skittering percussive elements over the four-and-half-minutes of
unsettled, environmental shifting.
Death After Life III delivers rapid-re, straight up acid with a snare heavy rhythm registering in an upper BPM range before fraying into the
sonic beyond. Death After Life V frenetically lashes out with hi-hat
triplets, lower mix perimeter synths and pounding claps / snare at a
breakneck footwork pace.
The album's nal cut is the most up-front Juke number. Altogether shorn of
the more abstract spaces heard earlier, "Death After Life VIII" attacks with
the feel of a live, improvised performance. In fact, the majority of the tracks
on Death A!er Life were composed on the y with very few overdubs and
zero reliance on sampled sources.
While Death After Life reframes elements of Chicago Juke and house in
long-form design, the end result one in which a subtler horizon is discovered,
trumping more palatable musical codes and dissuading us from treating
electronic music, or any genre-stamped style matter, with rote attention.1. Death After Life - I

Umphrey's McGee entered I.V. Labs Studio in Chicago in November of 2016 to record what would become the band's eleventh full-length studio album. The result was it's not us, the most vibrant, mature expression of the band's growing studio prowess to date. "We decided to go in for a week, live, eat, and breathe Umphrey's McGee," recalls Joel, "we're known as a strong live band, but we take so much pride in our writing. [In this album] the focus is on that writing."1. The Silent Type

Adult FilmTim Kasher seems to never rest. Since 1997, he has written and released 12 full-length albums both as a solo artist and with his bands Cursive and The Good Life, and has crisscrossed North America and Europe countless times on tour. His newest album, sophomore solo effort Adult Film, began coming together in late 2011, just shortly after Cursive finished recording their seventh LP I Am Gemini (Saddle Creek, 2012). Kasher continued to work on it over the next year before heading to Electrical Audio studio in his adopted hometown of Chicago, IL in spring 2013.
Adult Film is more thematically elastic than any other of his recent albums, and spans songs that reflect on matters such as aging and mortality, growing up and growing older, and how these things impact our relationships-including the way we interact with and view the life around us. Kasher is as lyrically incisive as ever: the album is packed
with thoughtful apprehensions, cleverly turned phrases, and reflections on himself and the world at large, all run through his distinctive filter of dry wit and frequent self-deprecation.
Musically, the new album plays down the orchestral element of his lush debut solo album The Game Of Monogamy (Saddle Creek, 2010) and offers a more direct, yet no less affecting, blend of rock and pop. Kasher is aided throughout by Sara Bertuldo (bass, vocals), Patrick Newbery (organ, keys, synths, horns), and Dylan Ryan (drums) - who backed him while touring around Monogamy-as well as Nate Kinsella (drums; of Make Believe and Birthmark); Laura Stevenson (vocals; of Laura Stevenson and the Cans); Matt Focht (drums; of Head Of Femur); Jenna Morrison (vocals; of Conduits); Laura Carrozza (flute; of Aficionado); and Sarah Holtschlag (saw). Adult Film was mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Wye Oak, Explosions In The Sky) at Elmwood Recording in Dallas, TX.
Kasher has become known throughout his career for insightful, literate, and candid songwriting, and his solo work and albums with Cursive and The Good Life have been praised by Rolling Stone, Esquire, The New York Times, Alternative Press, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, The A.V. Club, and Vice, among many others.1. American Lit
