Any year that produces new music from Sacramento’s Will Haven is a good year in my book so the announcement that the band have signed a new deal with Artery Recordings and that a new EP is imminent means 2015 is going to be a really good year. [Read more…]
It’s some Southern-fried/down home acoustics (By way of New Jersey, of course) which drive “Ghost”, the first single off of Malkasian’s self-titled debut which is set for re-release with bonus tracks through Dead Industry Records in the near future. [Read more…]
What can one possibly say about a song that has everything? Not much really because Dive Exit’s “Living Dangerous” has it all: great riffs, a catchy chorus, AND a fun video! But I’d be remiss if I didn’t say something…. [Read more…]
Some days you wake up and just yearn for the sweet, sexy sounds of Jason Bieler, y’know? Today was one of those days for me and luckily, there just happened to be a new Owl Stretching song waiting in my inbox! “Evolution” is the name and rocking is its game. [Read more…]
This Friday, February 27th, is International STAND UP to Bullying Day and Liverpool’s Matchstickmen have decided to bring attention to a very serious matter with their newest song, the very personal “For No Reason”. [Read more…]
The only thing that makes me happier than when some great, new music comes across my digital desk is when I get to share said great, new music with all of you. That’s exactly the case when talking about London duo Evawolf. [Read more…]
Are you ready for some wholly uplifting Pop to start out your day? Then you’ve come to the right place if you press “play” on the stream of “The Balance” from Royal Tongues below. Hailing from New York, Royal Tongues deliver the perfect blend of electro and Pop on their debut single. Taking cues from Duran Duran and contemporaries like Black Taxi at times, “The Balance” shines with huge sing-a-long choruses, lush synths and some driving guitar riffs making sure new fans will be sticking around for the long haul.
For the latest and greatest info on Royal Tongues, head on over to their official Facebook page. But for now, be sure to play “The Balance” repeatedly at ludicrous volumes from the rooftops.
I don’t think there’s ever been a name more fitting for a band and the music they create then “Unstoppable Death Machines”. On their upcoming 12″, “Single Clarity”, the brothers Tucci yield impeccable skill on a completely improvised track that doesn’t relent for a second of its’ almost ten minute run time.
It’s a barrage of guitars and drums that hit like a nuclear bomb from second one. Billy Tucci’s playing is frenetic yet almost a metronome in spots with a sound reminiscent of Lars’ “trash can” overproduced St. Anger bullshit but, y’know, actually good. When the vocals eventually saunter in around the three minute mark, it’s like Jello Biafra is singing at you.
Take all the modern duos out today, throw ’em in a blender, and you still wouldn’t have the creativity and ferocity that Unstoppable Death Machines create on “Single Clarity” alone.
Need I say more?
“Single Clarity” is available on July 15th through Beat Imprint. Pre-order it here, and hey, the digital track is only a buck. What have you got to lose?
“Hang Out” might be a slow burn compared to last single “Roll Out” but shows the range of things to come on Tomboy’s upcoming EP, due this summer.
William Shore’s brilliant beats and beautiful synths create a spacious sonic landscape that serves as the backdrop for Sarah Aument’s breathy, enticing vocals. Aument hints at even greater things previewing a smooth cadence early on in “Hang Out” that gives a slight Beyonce vibe (Hey, Beyonce is a great singer!).
If “Roll Out” got you excited for Tomboy then “Hang Out” will only further your obsession with Tomboy.
Listen to “Hang Out” below and stay tuned for more details on Tomboy’s upcoming EP.
