10 Essential Record Store Day Releases
The Stranger

Not featured: The tortured poet. by Dave Segal Record Store Day, one of the most contentious of retail traditions, returns on April 20. We've gone over this manufactured holiday's pros and cons many times before (here's one explication; here's another), so let's just say this: every year, RSD yields about 10%-15% crucial titles out of its hundreds. But which 10%-15%, you ask? Well, that varies, obviously, as musical taste is subjective. However, as I have spent too many decades crate-digging and record-collecting, I submit that I have a fair idea of what RSD releases you need, even if you don ..read more

The Stranger
by Dave Segal
1d ago
somesurprises' album Perseids is out on Doom Trip Records Friday, April 19. by Dave Segal Of the thousands of bands I've talked to as a music journalist, somesurprises are the most soft-spoken. Their absolutely chill voices barely register on the playback of our interview, which took place in their Fremont rehearsal space, ExEx Audio. And this chillness seeps into the Seattle quartet's extraordinary music, which alchemizes a few of the finest rock strains—space, kraut, and shoegaze—into songs that massage your mind and tingle your body with subtle insistence. Led by guitarist/vocalist/songwrit ..read more

Why Amazon's Just Walk Out Technology Failed
The Stranger
by Charles Mudede
1d ago
Amazon recently admitted that it does use humans in this technology. by Charles Mudede Earlier this month, Business Insider reported that Amazon's Just Walk Out technology was not run by robots, but by the eyes of "1,000 workers in India who review what you pick up, set down, and walk out of its stores with." And so what looked like a new trick was in fact old hat. The work of American cashiers and attendants (a high-income society) had simply been, like service-related jobs, offshored to India (a low-income society). And this transference of services from one economic zone to another is only ..read more

Seattle’s Pay Up Problems May Have Little to Do with the New Minimum Wage
The Stranger
by Hannah Krieg
1d ago
If the Pay Up policy widened the gap between the “winners and losers,” then the council could shape policy to uplift bike couriers instead of effectively or entirely tossing out the law. by Hannah Krieg After a relentless campaign from big corporations, the Seattle City Council appears poised to repeal or dramatically cut a minimum wage ordinance for gig workers known as “Pay Up,” which took effect this year. But interviews with the gig workers themselves reveal that the corporatist council might make that extreme decision despite missing a big piece of the puzzle. Over the last two weeks, The ..read more

Like dropping acid—you didn’t know what the trip would bring, but you knew some crazy shit was about to happen. by Brittne Lunniss Oneohtrix Point Never, the moniker of Daniel Lopatin, may not be a household name, but you’ve likely heard his work.
