Singles! Replicant, “Lifelike”

The title track to a lost album is what “Lifelike”, the latest from Chicago’s Replicant, is being branded as and if this is any indication of what the rest of that record was going to sound like then we’re praying to the Electro Gods that the rest is found soon!

There are artists out there that, whenever they put anything new out, immediately bring a smile to listeners faces…not necessarily because the music itself is feel good or happy go lucky but because of a sense of pride that this given artist is continually putting out compelling and exciting new music.

Modern Mimes Preview Next Full-Length With New Single “Stare”

Ex/Current Members of Easter Bloodhounds, Test Meat And textbookcopilot Join Forces In forktie, Debut “Spores”

The measure of a good debut song is something that’s timeless: It sounds like a song you’ve heard before but can’t quite place it but it also sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard at the same time. Still with us? Great! Because that’s exactly the sort of reaction that “Spores”, by forktie, evokes on each consequent play through. [Read more…]

Untitled Metal Column: Volume 13 (Nuke Everything, “No Control”)

It seems that 2018 is the year for resurrecting old columns here and the latest single from Nuke Everything seemed to be the perfect excuse to bring back “Untitled Metal Column”! Also, holy shit, we haven’t done one of these in almost three years? And holy shit! We’ve been around for over three years?!?! [Read more…]
