VOYAGERS is a glittering, sensual exploration into an unchartered and fully-electrified universe. It is a tale of “Future Love”, where a newly-conscious, idealized romanticism is propelled by contagious dance beats, synth-driven melodies, and sweetly seductive vocals. The soundscape is sophisticated and visionary, yet the stories are intimate and relatable. “VOYAGERS” is a journey through a spectrum of emotional highs and lows: from the apex of adult infatuation and desire, to the darkest abyss of disconnection and existentialism. Every detail from beat, hook, and lyrical lexicon is unveiled deftly. Clearly, Rose and Johan wouldn’t surrender anything less.
“Hands Up For Africa”
The bredren Ras Teo is back with a new testament to his timeless roots rock style.

LISTEN: Internazionale – “Bells of Addiction”
The Pale and the Colorful is the first album of Internazionale presented on vinyl by Posh Isolation after a near flood of limited tape releases both through his own remarkable Janushoved label and through Posh Isolation.
The Pale and the Colorful is a logical summary of Internazionale’s work up to this point and is the prime example of the sensual synthetic meditations he has come to be known for.
The clear pop sensibility to his compositions are clouded with noises and ambiguous field recordings and it is somehow hard to really figure out if the music intends to lift us up or hold us down. What is certain is that no Internazionale release up to this point reaches the level of this new album.
NOVEMBERS DOOM Premiere 2nd Album Track

Skating Polly, the stepsister duo of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse, often calls its music “ugly pop.” It’s a fitting description for songs that veer between sweet and catchy and full-throated screams with distorted, chug-a-lug guitar. The band’s sound is deeply indebted to ’90s grunge and alt-rock, but never comes across as pure imitation, perhaps because the duo viewed that era from the outside; when Skating Polly released its first album in 2011, both Mayo and Bighorse were still teens.
Today Skaters share the video for their second single “Criminal” on Clash. When discussing the video, guitarist Josh Hubbard states, “All good things come to an end…and some bad things.

Penned from the point of view of his brother Michael – Declan explains: “‘Fallen So Young’ is about my brother Michael and his wife Hayleigh and how they’ve been together since they were 15.

Faze Wave Premiere single, “Chemistry” via ATWOOD
Faze Wave is an alternative duo that has been playing around the Southeastern United States as an independent band for the past year. Singer/guitarist Matthew Flynn and drummer Zachary Stickler met through their love for music in the early years of high school and have not looked back since. Their sound has evolved dramatically since the release of their first EP “Okay Alright” back in 2015. Their recently released debut album MELT is a feel good and thought provoking body of music that is a glimpse of the vision Matthew and Zachary have for the future of Faze Wave.
The track premiered via PureVolume where the band’s Nick Lerangis shared, “I started this song years ago with my friend Marc Lacuesta, sitting on his porch in Nashville. Both of us were in uncertain relationship situations: he was just starting to date someone new, I had been with someone who had moved out of the country and I couldn’t stop thinking about her.

On their debut album Silver & Gold, RYAL has created an innovative sound that’s both classic and cutting edge, driven by the vintage electronic textures of modular synth bass lines locked to analog drum machines and keyboards.
RUN THE JEWELS UNVEIL “LEGEND HAS IT” VIDEO
Rap super-duo Run The Jewels have premiered “Legend Has It”, the first video (of many to come) from their universally lauded album Run The Jewels 3. Directed by esteemed talent and old compatriot Brian Beletic (who previously helmed El-P’s classic “Deep Space 9mm” video), the clip portrays the duo in a police lineup, which they suspect might just be a set up. The acid they just dropped isn’t helping, either.
Director Brian Beletic states: “The video for ‘Legend Has It’ plays with the theme of guilty until proven innocent. We live in a world where the stronger the truth the greater the opposition. In this story EL-P and Killer Mike are in a police lineup and the cards are stacked heavily against them. But why is that?” Run the Jewels offer that “this video is a worst nightmare scenario. High on acid and caught in the system. Pitted against icons of innocence in a police line up that doesn’t feel real. No bunnies were hurt in the making of this video.” The duo also capped last week with a ferocious performance of “Legend Has It” on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
