Of the song, Jurvanen recently told Paste, “The album was more or less finished when we decided to go back in and cut this track…it’s a song about believing in someone, someone who doesn’t really believe in themselves. It’s about encouragement, which is something I think we could often use more of.”
MOTOFIGHTR POST NEW SINGLE
Last month LA/SF duo MOTOFIGHTR shared their single “Grow”, a slow-burner, tropical teaser track to their forthcoming Pacific Post Highway EP.
Today they release the first official single from the EP; “Piano Fu*k”. Just as “Grow” thrived on the patient build up of energy, so too does. Steel drums kick alongside glistening synths and thinly slices guitars, with layers of multi-tracked pianos pounding throughtout – hence “Piano Fu*k”
NEW SINGLE BY REKS
Brick Records is proud to present the REKS & Hazardis Soundz collaborative album Eyes Watching God. The concept album has the duo showcasing a contrast between “good and evil” beginning with a “God Side” and finishing with a “Devil Side.” The CD artwork features a dual-image album cover showing both the ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’ sides, depending on what angle you view it from. The Massachusetts lyricist linked up with the Queens native in South Florida to complete the album during the past year, and they enlisted N.O.R.E, Saigon, Fredro Starr, Termanology, Ruste Juxx, Dutch Rebelle and others to add to their cause. The result is a highly conscious and fiercely political album.

WE ARE THE BRAVE PREMIERE “YOUR GHOST” VIDEO
We Are the Brave were formed in Sydney, when singer-songwriter/producer Jess Chalker began to collaborate with hip hop producer Ox Why. The multi-instrumentalists found common ground in 70’s soft rock, 80’s pop, 90’s sci-fi, trip hop, and contemporary alterna-pop, which inspired them to create a modern sound that re-imagined all these influences. Hailed as one of this year’s most promising acts to emerge out of Australia’s fertile indie scene, the duo gained international acclaim and domestic airplay with their self-produced and self-released debut EP, “Noctua”, and singles “All Good Things Must Come To An End” and “Sparrow” (with its accompanying MTV Iggy and MTV Buzzworthy-championed video, directed by James Chappell).
NEW VIDEO BY BAD CASE BIG MOUTH
Harrison, New Jersey Easycore band Bad Case of Big Mouth will release their debut LP Straight Up Bad Luck on August 19th via Eulogy Recordings. The band’s new music video for the track “Elmer and the Man That Feeds Him” is premiering today on New Noise Magazine.
Lead vocalist Tyler Drama says, “The song ‘Elmer and the Man That Feeds Him’ is really the best representation of what we’re trying to go for; the perfect combination of Hardcore and Pop-Punk music. John (co-vocalist/screamer) and I switch on and off to give the music some diversity, but it all flows really well together. The video came out really well too. Basically, we’re all ten years old and it’s John’s birthday. His boring parents try to throw him a party and everyone looks miserable. So then we start playing our music, and then John escapes the party and starts his demonic screaming. It’s pretty awesome.”
NEW EP BY FEED ME
In May, Feed Me revealed the return of his newly enhanced Teeth show and plans for a new EP on Sotto Voce. Today he gives all his fans what they’ve all been waiting for, with his hard hitting four track EP titled Feed Me’s Psychedelic Journey.

THE SOCAL-BASED ONE-STOP VAPING SHOP AND DISTRIBUTION COMPANY
The thousands of people worldwide whose lives have been transformed by the powerful and growing cultural phenomenon known as “vaping” probably don’t know the names of the brilliant minds that have helped make their dynamic switch from traditional tobacco cigarettes to inhaling from personal vaporizers possible.
According to Amber Lee, Chief Communications Officer for the groundbreaking Cerritos, Calif.-based VapeRev (www.vaperev.com) -a fast growing one-stop vape shop and national distributor of a wide array of vaping products- the very first electronic cigarette was patented in 1963 by Herbert A. Gilbert, whose cigalike device heated the nicotine solution and produced water vapor. In those days, traditional smoking was considered cool and was even advertised on TV, so his device was not popularized until later. The 1963 cigalike is now being sold with Emperor Brand.

With an impressive sixteen-song tracklist, the album spans a wide range of the bands growth. “This record has been a work in progress since around 2009/10, so it’s great that some of the songs that were written that far back have stood the test of time (and member/style changes) and made it onto the album,” said bassist Bobby Magnell. “We wanted to do something very 90’s and people told us we were a 90’s-esche band,” added guitarist Zack St. Paul. “What they did back then was 16 or more songs, and we thought it would make sense for us to do that.”
