VAL TVOAR release new video
Estonian metalhead stoner Val Tvoar released a killer video for his new single “Dark Side of Mine”.
The cinematography is of a deliciously-gritty texture and integrates perfectly with the core story, which is thematically inspired by the Mary Shelley novel “Frankenstein as the Modern Prometheus”.
Some of the first people to recognize STEVE’s unique musical talents were renowned artists such as David Byrne, Dirty Projectors, tUnE-yArDs, Mac DeMarco, Dr. Dog, and elder statesmen like Lee Ranaldo and Built to Spill. STEVE is likely the only guitarist who has cut records with Sondre Lerche and Death Grip’s Zach Hill, been handpicked to open a sold out North American tour for Tame Impala and then provided guitar for Paul Simon’s new record.
These wild artistic relationships came to be because STEVE happens to be one of the most talented songwriters and guitarists currently working. But they are also a direct reflection of the person, the soul of a guy any artist or fan who’s met him will identify immediately. It’s the same soul that fills his songs.

Earlier this week, Maxo Kream spoke to XXL about his plans for 2017.

Deep State Announce New LP ‘Thought Garden’ Out 4/14/17

Burlington, VT true power trio GHASTLY SOUND has signed with heavy music indie Magnetic Eye Records. The bass-driven three-piece, which fuses 90’s-era noise rock dissonance and distortion with a nod to modern stoner, doom and cult rock, will release its self-titled debut EP on February 24.
Gritty, loud, unforgiving and uncompromising, GHASTLY SOUND formed around the foundation of TJ Maynard (bass) and Ryan Lewis (drums), childhood friends who began writing songs as a two-piece focused on guitarless “volume worship and a love for party riffs”. The band’s rolling, thunderous tones blended with a splash of groove attracted vocalist Tyler Gurwicz, whose presence provided equal amounts straightforward candor and raw power. Worshipping at the altar of volume, GHASTLY SOUND’s presence is as large as it is loud; sludgy bass riffs merge with spiraling time signatures and vocal hooks cut through the noise as burning screams interweave with dream-pop melodies. Drawing influence from contemporaries like Kylesa, Torche and Red Fang, as well as no wave pioneers such as Helmet and Unsane, GHASTLY SOUND aims to remind listeners of an era when both bands and people lived authentically.
