CO/NTRY is an adult-contemporary post-punk duo comprised of Newfoundland-born/Montreal-based artists Beaver Sheppard and David Whitten.

Though the band likes to think of themselves as genre-neutral, their music cycles through a wide variety of styles with manic indifference. The name — originally “Country” — was chosen because it was confusing and impossible to search for online, in the tradition of enigmatic acts like Boston and Chicago. The new version was selected with greater visibility in mind, provided people can remember how to spell it, or are aware that the name has changed at all.

LIL DICKY shares “short film” for “Pillow Talking”

Lil Dicky has released his “short film” for “Pillow Talking” off his chart-topping debut album ‘Professional Rapper.’

Clocking in at over eleven minutes, it’s more of a cinematic experience than a music video, one that needs to be seen to be believed. What starts off as a polite conversation between Lil Dicky and his one night stand, ends up evolving into a hilarious – and yet deeply existential – debate concerning the existence of aliens and God (played by John C. Reilly), the extinction of the dinosaurs (with animation from the same team that did the last Jurassic Park film), and the morality of carnivores. Not to mention, a fully animated representation of Lil Dicky’s brain (Brain is also the featured artist on the track). The other pretty incredible fact about the video is that it’s the 49th most expensive video of all time. Artists just aren’t making music videos this expensive anymore, especially indie artists…it’s pretty epic…


Lovechild of a wayward New York boy and the city of Nashville, Sundaes survives on McFlurrys, “Steel Magnolia’s” and the complete works of Lana Del Rey. The band draw influence from a combination of early oughts’ indie rock, blues, and genre assorted hits or all eras. Dancing among the kings of country, a queen does her best.

The Rocketboys will release their third full-length, Certain Circles, on May 12, 2017.

Their dynamic, expansive songs often outsize the clubs in which they’re performed and have garnered The New York Times’ apt description, “… sounds like an amped up Death Cab for Cutie with Coldplay-style melodies.”

Lyon, France dark dreamweavers LES DISCRETS return with Prédateurs, their first full-length album in five years. The record will see release on April 21 via Prophecy Productions (Alcest, DOOL). Ever-evolving, the sound of LES DISCRETS in 2017 takes a stylistic shift which sees the band’s dreamy shoegaze and metallic tinged post-rock colored with a heavy post-punk influence and electronic chill while incorporating inspiration from trip-hop and 70’s film soundtracks. In advance of the new record’s release, BLURT premieres the new track, “Rue Octavio Mey”, saying, “It’s a cliché to play mix ‘n’ match with influences, but consider a blend of Pink Floyd and Massive Attack and you’re swimming in the right part of the ocean.”

THRILLERS Release Sweaty New Video For “HEAT”

“Heat” is the sleek lead single off THRILLERS forthcoming album “Break Free” (Lights & Music Collective, April 28), and they’ve got the video to match it. THRILLERS have managed to merge their fascination with contemporary art and the LA club scene in the form of the hypnotic and pulsating video for ‘Heat.’ Taking cues from fashion-forward artists like Grace Jones, THRILLERS invite us into a psychedelic and sexual world. Soaked in red, the video alternates between the erotic and the esoteric; a sensual dancer is juxtaposed by the duo’s stillness as they appear intertwined together, cloaked in black foil, or caught behind an opaque but seemingly impenetrable wall.
