At this point, Hunter S. Thompson's drug-fueled excursions are a sort of American mythology on their own. Troy Little's graphic adaptation of his seminal 1971 book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas portrays Dr. Thompson as cartoonish and larger than life, which isn't much of a leap from the source. More

James first plunked out esoteric keyboard melodies and launched ambient IDM into mainstream consciousness, few producers have been as consistently creative and adept at establishing mood as Oneohtrix Point Never's Daniel Lopatin.

Hell-bent on grappling with moderate success on their own terms, Parquet Courts open Monastic Living with the straightforwardly titled "No, No, No!," which finds them rejecting everything that can be stuffed into a 73-second song.
