To usher in this new chapter for Brighter Than A Thousand Suns we recorded our cover of Linkin Park’s “Heavy.” We felt this song provided the perfect canvas to show our hybrid of synth-rock and post-hardcore.” – Randy Roswell (Guitars/Programming/Synthesizers)

Chino XL and Rama Duke “Under The Bridge”

It is hardly commonplace for hip-hop and rock to become bonded bedfellows. And it takes a crafty vision to mesh the disparate musical species in a way that begets fire and ice in a single song.

“Under the Bridge,” the 1992 global hit from Red Hot Chili Peppers, is a moody, potent exposè about alienation, despondency and the search for one’s truth. Lead singer Anthony Kiedis penned the platinum-selling song as he found redemption on the other side of addiction. Who can forget the indelible chorus: “I don’t ever want to feel, like I did that day/Take me to the place I love, take me all the way.”

We’re just a few weeks into 2017 and LA-based rock band IRONTOM have already landed an arena tour, put the finishing touches on their full-length debut and released two new songs and a video. The news started when multi-Grammy winners the Red Hot Chili Peppers announced that they’re taking IRONTOM on the road for a string of arena dates that begin on May 11th at the Paints Arena in Pittsburgh and run through May 29th at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary (see itinerary below). It’s an understatement to call it exciting news for the band, who cite the Chili Peppers as one of their musical influences.

“It’s difficult to measure just how much of an impact and influence they’ve had on us as a group,” says IRONTOM vocalist Harry Hayes. “It’s an unbelievable honor and we’re so excited to get to open for them – they’re truly a great rock and roll band.”


Starting off as a not so secret band within a band, three dudes assembled and bonded over their love of punk rock. Keeping the cliché alive, Jack, Danyon and Zac jammed to poorly recorded drum tracks on Youtube in a small study turned studio room, nicknamed “the toaster shack oven”. Never being able to start simultaneously with the internet, Youtube was easily replaced with the arrival of Jedd who completed Curbside Drive.

The Perth based band have been leaving their mark on the local scene through their ’90s punk inspired riffs accompanied by their happy sad lyrics. Being described as pop punk, punk rock and even grunge at times, Curbside Drive are channeling their inner awkwardness and insecurities through their upcoming debut EP, ‘Outside Your Window’. Recorded and produced by John Prosser of Vision Studios in their hometown of Perth and mastering done by James Newhouse of Reel2reel Studios, the EP leaves listeners with powerful driven chords, highlighting short catchy riffs whilst sneaky bass riffs linger beneath it all.

Mr Easy is a man over-flowing with music and melodies that deal with the more harmonious aspects of life and living. He was born in the verdant, undulating hills of the Cockpit Country. The transition at the age of ten, for this country boy, to the cold, gray streets of New York City was not an easy rite of passage.

Directed by one of the bands’ masterminds Toto Vivian, the video is a dizzying visual recount of the bands’ recent experiences – on the road, in the studio, backstage, on stage, eating pizza. Evoking a similar headspin to their last clip, “Rings”, the videos together serve as an indicator as to what listeners can expect from the upcoming full-length release – chaotic rhythms, manic guitars and swerving melodies, rinsed through with the reverby post-punk attitude that characterises the Splashh sound.

David Bazan’s new album, ‘Care’

During transition, there is the urge to look backwards to figure out where we are supposed to go. It can be nostalgic; the golden haze that surrounds our selective memory. Sweet moments that make up our individual narratives, or the stories we tell each other to reinforce our collective identity.

But that glance backwards can distract us from where we are now and what it really means; from the sea change, from the tide that sweeps what we know away and leaves us unencumbered, shivering, and beginning again.

Vokab Kompany & 9 Theory – ‘Beneath The Shallow’

High energy, synth driven hip-hop group Vokab Kompany, and indietronica vocalist/producer 9 Theory bring us Beneath The Shallow. This collaborative two track EP sounds like the intersection of Radiohead and Outkast. While Vokab Kompany is often known for their intense live show and dance party flow, the subject matter here is much more intense and personal.

Beneath the Shallow is a direct response to the vibe and superficiality that can often permeate the mainstream festival circuit, particularly throughout the last decade and the rise of EDM. The EP tackles the intense and all too human issues of depression and drug abuse.

Big Surr premiere full stream of catchy, surfy debut ‘In Business’

In the center of landlocked Tennessee there is a basin at the bottom of which sits Nashville, where humidity settles in on the city like a sweatbox and Big Surr dream of beaches. Borne in an Ohio basement and raised below the Mason-Dixon line, this ebullient five piece, led by frontwoman Helen Van, has been cooling the Middle Tennessee region with their special brand of summer bummer fuzz pop for years. In 2010, Big Surr released their Miss You Most EP on RAD FRNDS and, in 2012, their Baked + Bruised 7-inch on Infinity Cat. They quickly became mainstays in the burgeoning Nashville DIY scene and garnered comparisons to the likes of the Jesus and Mary Chain, Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls and Camera Obscura meets Dinosaur Jr.


Of the video, songwriter Ritchie Hemphill stated: “Using music or video media as a platform to start stating things, I wanted to start simply with a message of self celebration and loving the humanity of people. I wanted to show people privately doing self-care. The song is about celebrating ones own specificity as well as being open and accepting of people’s sexual identities. And the partnering idea for the video is celebrating ones own athleticism.”

Hollow Everdaze shares “Catastrophe”

Hollow Everdaze have thrust back into gear for 2017 with new single “Catastrophe”, an infectious slice of psychedelic-pop carved from their forthcoming album Cartoons (due for release later this year via Deaf Ambitions). Featuring a rollicking, garage-indebted hook, “Catastrophe” trades swirls of violin present in previous single “Still Ticking” for flourishes of keys and guitar-fuzz — at times recalling moments of Dutch shoegazer Jacco Gardner.

EXTREMITY: “Chalice Of Pus” From Debut LP

EXTREMITY’s lineup of Bay Area veterans, Shelby Lermo (Vastum, Ulthar), Aesop Dekker (Worm Ouroboros, Ludicra, Agalloch), Marissa Martinez-Hoadley (Cretin, Repulsion), and Erika Osterhout (Necrosic, Scolex, Trepanation), stirs the salaciously sanguine death and grind sewage on Extremely Fucking Dead to a crepitating clamor of cacophonous cruelty.

Decibel spills forth “Chalice Of Pus” from the LP, adjoined by an interrogation of Martinez-Hoadley and Osterhout. The mag calls out the record’s, “ungodly morbid destruction,” continuing, “Whether rending limbs with trem-picked, blastbeat-riddled dirges reminiscent of old school NYDM, or pummeling your brainmeat until it bruises and calcifies into something like caveman coprolite, a la early Grave, EXTREMITY clearly know their way around death metal.”

Tashaki Miyaki shares new track + video “City”

The Los Angeles-based duo Tashaki Miyaki will release their highly anticipated debut album ‘The Dream’ on April 7 via Metropolis Records (pre-order here). This week the band shares the album’s second single “City.” The cinematic video for the track was directed by Kelsey McNamee. “The song brought to mind the image of a woman who feels disconnected, someone who floats through spaces and life,” McNamee explains. “I was inspired by the portrayal of a lonely woman in Barbara Loden’s film Wanda and the dynamic in Paper Moon. As well as Los Angeles and the way it can make you feel isolated.”

Daniel Tortoledo “Dark Times”

Brooklyn-based Folk/Rock American-Venezuelan songwriter Daniel Tortoledo drops new single “Dark Times”, in collaboration with visual artist Lill Martinez. Watch video.

“Dark Times” is the first cut of Tortoledo’s upcoming album “Throughout These Years”, due this summer. “Inspiration for the song came while cleaning an old piano”, he says. “The random sound of the keys served as original sound bites for the groove to start taking place. That’s the beautiful thing about art, it may come from where you least expect it.”

The video is an audiovisual art piece hand-drawn frame by frame. Through a moving panorama technique, artist Lill Martinez conveys a kaleidoscopic sea of elements that match the music both in a unique and experimental manner.

Gayle Skidmore hits the road in support of ‘The Golden West’

Amsterdam-by way of San Diego, CA-based singer-songwriter Gayle Skidmore is excited to announce the release of her latest full-length, The Golden West. The album will be available nationally on Friday, April 7, 2017.

She’ll also be touring in support of the album. The tour, and the album release, are the culmination of nearly two years of both heartache and mind-clearing revelations. The Golden West would test her perseverance, but ultimately help her grow as an artist.

“The week before my wedding I was still finishing vocals for the album, which was pretty insane,” says Skidmore, discussing The Golden West, her twentieth independent release overall, and her third to feature an adult coloring book with the album, each picture depicting a different song.


Berdmajik Premieres Effervescent New Track, ‘The First Time’

The man behind Berdmajik, Donnie Felton, is best known for his work with psych-surf-indie cult favorites Grubby Little Hands. Berdmajik’s debut album, SPELLS, sounds like a distant relative to his previous outfit – a psychedelic second cousin, twice removed. Felton’s airy pop instincts merge with melancholy vocals in a sweet/savory axis. Utilizing the same soul-steeped pop songwriting that has always been simmering just beneath the surface of Felton’s earlier efforts, as Berdmajik those undertones come frothing over.

Bleeding Knees Club sign to Inertia

Australia’s own garage-pop ratbags Bleeding Knees Club, have finally returned, announcing a brand new label home with Inertia Music and revealing their first single in over three years. “Chew The Gum,” that premiered overnight with Linda Marigliano on triple j, is a sugar-rush punk nugget that makes you not only fall in love with the home-grown hooligans all over again, but makes you realize just how much you’ve missed them.

Splashh release new video for “Waiting a Lifetime”

Sydney via East London scuzz-pop quartet Splashh have shared the video for “Waiting A Lifetime”, premiering on Pilerats. The track is lifted from their forthcoming sophomore album of the same name, set for release on April 14 via Cinematic Music Group.

Directed by one of the bands’ masterminds Toto Vivian, the video is a dizzying visual recount of the bands’ recent experiences – on the road, in the studio, backstage, on stage, eating pizza. Evoking a similar headspin to their last clip, “Rings”, the videos together serve as an indicator as to what listeners can expect from the upcoming full-length release – chaotic rhythms, manic guitars and swerving melodies, rinsed through with the reverby post-punk attitude that characterises the Splashh sound.

“Sunrise” Official Video by Jillionaire

The accompanying video to “Sunrise,” the brand new single by Jillionaire, Fuse ODG & Fatman Scoop makes its world debut on the Major Lazer YouTube channel.

TW Walsh’s Terrible Freedom LP out 04/28

Terrible Freedom is an album about fear and liberation, space and time, the self and the mind. Its themes are existential and broad, but they also characterize the cultural and political dumpster fire in which we find ourselves engulfed today. Walsh grew up in Reagan’s America (The New Cold War, the AIDS crisis, trickle-down economics, The War on Drugs), so Trump’s chaotic presidency is familiar territory.

If Terrible Freedom has a message, it’s to cultivate compassion and courage. If you can muster the strength, simply lean into the fear. All things must pass. Whatever comes, just let it arrive.

Westing Release New Song “Skipping Beats”

Westing is about to release their loudest album to date, I Haven’t Been Feeling Myself. With this album, Westing departs from their previous quiet acoustic sound and introduces a whole new intensity, expanding into a full band post-hardcore sound. ?

“After several solo shows, I quickly realized playing quiet acoustic songs by myself is not what I want to do. I need to be loud.” – Matt Mascarenas ?

Matt Mascarenas started Westing as a solo project in 2015. In what began as a way to keep his musical creativity alive when he wasn’t touring, Westing quickly became an ongoing pursuit, releasing a series of impromptu acoustic singles and splits. ??
