Let True Moon hex you with debut single ‘Voodoo’
‘Voodoo’ is the debut single from Swedish dark wave act True Moon. The minimalistic band is fronted by Karolina Engdahl who´s strong voice both empowers and stand out in a dark and raw musical landscape.

Veonity released brand new single
The Swedish power metal band Veonity releases their second studio album September 23rd.

ELECTRO PUNKS ‘VELVET KILLS’ UNVEIL ‘RED SHOES’ VIDEO SINGLE
Concluding their run of video releases from the ‘Memory’ EP unleashed earlier in 2016, the Berlin based duo ‘Velvet Kills’ deliver news of their ‘Red Shoes’ video single.
Driven by a sensually hypnotic pulse that is layered with atmospheric textures and sultry vocal tones, Red Shoes tells the tale of an epic love story both aurally and visually. ‘A trip inside a woman’s mind that listens as her inner critic rejects and fights against love, until realising that being vulnerable is a mark if strength, not weakness. The challenge of accepting love’ (Quote – lyricist – Susana Santos). Produced by Ron Goldstein and Art Mistake, the Red Shoes video features guest appearances from Tanja Ellensohn and Maria do Rosario Pocas.
Last Exit In New York “I Can’t Call You Mine”
Whatever route you take there are signs all around pointing you in the right direction – you just have to take notice. Singer-songwriter Esteban Rivera did. One summer morning in 2013 Rivera trekked from New York to Jersey for a concert celebrating Colombian Independence Day. At the border there was a sign that said he was approaching the last exit in New York. And suddenly it hit him – “I immediately knew that was the name I was looking for,” he explains. The rock band that morphed out of his solo project finally had a moniker, one that would suit the band for years to come. And with their forthcoming EP, Trentmont, Rivera and co. discovered something else: the last exit in New York was actually a highway to something bigger.
Bigger meaning the band is on course to establishing a solid reputation in their current home base of Colombia. In 2015 their song “Take Two” hit #1 on the VivaColombiaTop100 charts. As word spread about their unbridled live shows, they’ve been invited to perform at music festivals in Europe and South America – a long way from the Empire State where the band conceptualized a couple years prior.
The NASCAR Foundation will host their first-ever NYC fete to celebrate 10 Years of Giving and to honor its Founder Betty Jane France, who passed away unexpectedly last month. Grammy® and Tony® nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles will perform at the gala.

Long-time collaborator Wes Freed created the art for the video; lyrics appear over an animated version of the painting seen in the gatefold of the vinyl version of the new album.
“We had finished recording American Band and were about to mix it when Cooley wrote ‘Filthy and Fried,’ and we all fell in love with the song and felt like it should be included in the album,” says Patterson Hood. “That weekend, DBT was about to do our annual HeAthens Homecoming shows at the 40 Watt Club in Athens GA. We had planned on recording the shows and David Barbe had his mobile recording rig set up so we cut the song live on stage during soundcheck. Two days later we began mixing the album.”
