AUTUMN IN JUNE DEBUT HIS LATEST TRACK “IDK”
Hip hop beats, svelte vocals, and a crescendo of drums. It may be a simply constructed symphony but the inspiration behind Autumn in June’s new indietronica single “IDK” goes much deeper. Beginning with the skeleton of the song, Autumn in June (AIJ) builds “IDK” up from the bare bones of a rhythmic beat and gentle vocals. As the song progresses, the lyrics become wrought with emotion, backed by intensified drum beats, delving into the meat, the muscle tissue if you will, of the single.

MYSTERIES UNVEIL “NEWLY THROWN” PREMIERED VIA STEREOGUM

The John Komar (Compositing) and Reza Iman (Art and Animation) directed video features Storyboards by Dana Terrance. “John and I had been going back and forth perfecting this video for quite some time,” explained Evan Weiss to NPR Music. “The most difficult part was coming up with something for the bridge section of the song – conveying the lyrics (about a very serious and sensitive topic) while still giving the story an optimistic outcome. This song was written for my fallen friend Mitch Dubey. The video was designed and written with him in mind. I think he would have loved it.”

CHAOS CHAOS ON NOISEY
Noisey said, “Still only 22 and 20, the Seattle-born, Brooklyn-based sisters continue to hone their sound, which has now blossomed into assured synth-pop… Their first new cut in this year, “Breaker” is a powerful kiss off to a lover who can’t quite grasp the truth of what’s before them. It’s another example of their precocious talent and the sisters ability to craft hooks that are both instantaneous and timeless.”

MYSTERIES NEW SINGLE “NEWLY THROWN”
You read that right — the identities of Mysteries’ three members are entirely unknown, even to their label. There’s a sense that the band would prefer to keep your focus on the music and not who they are, where they come from or what you might perceive them to be before hearing a single note. If you need glorious mug shots and preamble to capture your intrigue, then this is not for you. The album’s title, New Age Music is Here, could even be interpreted as a sarcastic shot at the new listening habits dictated by the constant noise all around us, but is more likely a simple invitation to engage with the music on its own terms, in its own universe.

FRNKIERO ANDTHE CELLABRATION VIDEO “JOYRIDING”
“This is a video I had seen in my head for a long time,” commented Iero. “I honestly thought it was going to be easier to pull off than it was. When you imagine it, you think, ‘oh, this doesn’t sound that difficult…,’ but when you begin to fully realize what needs to happen, in what specific order things need to happen, and what can get ruined and stained in the process… the task becomes a bit daunting. We ended up building a room in my backyard, shooting the video, and then tearing the room down in a span of 17 hours. The very next day we shot the video for “Weighted.””

“I Just want to share this fantastic video of SuperXtar with Skope!”
AMONGST THIEVES SIGN TO ROGUE
It’s astounding when you think of all the amazing talent that has recently signed up with Rogue Records America.

It’s these things that make Rogue different. Because of this, another amazing artist to watch out for has signed up with the label. Rogue Records America proudly announces the signing of AMONGST THIEVES to the Rogue family.
