Drawing ‘Blood’: How Former It Band Rhye Returned From the Brink
Music News

In the fall of 2012, Mike Milosh released “Open,” his first single under the name Rhye, a track that melded hushed chamber pop with a serene electronic pulse. The music was unwaveringly gentle, but surprisingly, it incited a major-label feeding frenzy. “I was not expecting 20 labels to be fighting for it,” Milosh remembers, speaking in his hotel room in downtown Manhattan on a frigid January day. “As a joke, this sounds super cocky, but I was like, ‘I’ll sign...

Review: Migos Deliver An Epic, Hypnotic Inventory Dump on ‘Culture II’
Music News

For the first 40 minutes of Migos’ Culture II, the Atlanta trap-rap trio’s combative, aspirational mantras of jet-set consumption achieve such a stark, staccato groove that the music almost becomes meditative – the kind of stupefyingly decadent reverie that gets you “lost in the sauce,” to paraphrase trap forefather Gucci Mane. But, then, something startling happens. On the album’s eleventh track “Gang Gang” (there are 24, and you’ll feel all of them afterwards), the eerily glittering fog...
