Tender Glue “Goodbye Bushwick”
Tender Glue is the project of Tom Klewicki, who moved to NYC from Poland in 2002, at age 17. His formative music experience was an interesting one, to say the least:
“When I was in Poland, probably 12 years old, my brother was confronted by a group of gypsies. He was holding a brand new ADIDAS soccer ball and was hassled to trade it with a broken guitar. He brought the guitar home and I was excited because I always wanted to learn how to play guitar. I took the guitar and tried fixing it by taping the neck with duck tape because duck tape works for everything. [smiles] But one day I came home and I found out that my mother had thrown it away and I even went to the garbage container to look for it, but I couldn’t find it. After that, it stayed in the back of my mind that it was something that I would eventually get into.”

DYING SCENE RECORDS has just announced that on December 20th they will be releasing “Holy Shit”, the first fully plugged-in album from Chicago acoustic-punk act DAVEY DYNAMITE.
If you’re new to Davey Dynamite he is as political as he is emotional and his songwriting is scalpel sharp politicized poetry sung with steadfast conviction. You might say he is the folk-gone-electric lineage of O Pioneers! and Against Me! born anew in the vein of Chicago punk rock.
“Holy Shit” has sing-a-longs, shout-a-longs, and scream-a-longs, but its always more than just noise. It’s youthful and scrappy and bleeds with every cut. Get a taste by streaming the album’s title track on bandcamp.
Goo Goo Dolls have shared the official music video for their latest single “Over and Over”! The video was created by Eliezer Castillo and chosen through a contest in partnership with Talenthouse.

The Friday, dark ethereal doom trio WORM OUROBOROS will drop the fruit of their stunning What Graceless Dawn studio offering upon the masses via Profound Lore. In advance of its impending release, Noisey is streaming the record in its forlorn entirety issuing, “‘Beautiful’ is generally a relative term — hideously abrasive black metal can be beautiful as a gentle folk song — but some artists are able to circumvent those grey areas of perception and personal taste, and cross genre lines without a moment’s thought, in pursuit of grace. WORM OUROBOROS is one such musical entity, and what its members collectively create is objectively, inarguably, utterly beautiful. To attempt to deny that fact is to deny one’s own ears.”
Today, Spooky Mansion premiered “Disco Bitch” via IMPOSE. Their split EP with Tino Drima ‘A Space God Appears’ is set to come out December 13th, via Dingo Vinyl.

NO WYLD NEW ALBUM ‘NOMADS’ AVAILABLE NOW
International hip-hop/electro trio, No Wyld, released their Columbia Records debut album ‘Nomads’ on November 25th, 2016.
With No Wyld’s diverse cultural, racial, and religious background, the group releases ‘Nomads’ in hopes of reaching a divided nation after November’s controversial U.S presidential election.

The sound and culture of hip hop have historically been regionalized and represented through an artist’s city and hometown affiliation. No Wyld serves as a turning point in this tradition. The now Brooklyn based trio originally met in New Zealand and have learned to embrace their lack of a home. Their debut album “Nomads” explores the concept of belonging, their nomadic upbringings, and the often turbulent journey to triumph.

Animator Joel Williams set this emotional whirlwind against the seeming mundanity of walking home alone – a time when the truths you’ve been hiding from can sneak up on you. The clip quite literally rolls the credits on the story it tells, wistful and nostalgic – but ultimately letting go.

Guitarist/vocalist Saara Untracht-Oakner stated, “I forgot where I first heard this song, but when I did I was totally entranced. It was one of the sexiest songs I’d ever heard – so much feel and so much cool for such a simple song. I loved how it could convey so much with so little. I wanted to cover it for a while, but never actually tried. Then one day this summer I was playing it in the car and proposed it to Glenn [van Dyke] and Chase [Noelle] and they were both super into it. So Chase learned the drum part and Glenn came in with some tambourine and psychy noise guitar stuff. I borrowed Chase’s harmonica and we laid down our version on the song in a little studio that Glenn rents out in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.”
