James was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), who also produced Bronson’s most recent, self-titled album. “It was a pleasure working with Eliot,” says Cobb. “He is a brilliant lyricist and poet.”
“Dave Cobb’s honesty and old-fashioned vibe were so appealing to me,” Bronson says. “They leant themselves to the way I created. And, of course, it was a huge boost to have this great artist/producer at your back.” Cobb and Bronson had worked together previously on his 2014 release, Eliot Bronson. “But this album is different,” Bronson points out. “It’s more sparse and economical. My voice is stronger. And I think it’s a step away from the purely Americana vibe of the last one in a direction that I have a hard time defining. I’m excited to discover how this music will define itself. I’m immensely proud of this record. It’s the best thing I’ve done. I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
Following a standout remix of Spokes’ ‘Flight’ in 2016, Miami-based producer Marks returns to Coyote Records to make his debut proper with new five-track tape, ‘Drain’.
Discovered after the label stumbled across his Soundcloud page and lead track ‘Drain’ in particular, the tape represents almost a year’s worth of back-and-forth emails, demo submissions and tracklist deliberations.

Written over an extended time on three different continents, Seekers and Finders finds the nine-piece multi-cultural band in top form – an aural party of violins, accordions, trumpet, marimba amongst the standard rock basics of guitars, drum and bass. “I was still bouncing between Latin America and Eastern Europe when songs were emerging, but finally, as soon as I moved back to New York, it all came into focus… as it always did for me here,” he explains.

Tasseomancy Share Video For “Jimi Infinity”
Sari Lightman elaborates further about the video: “When my sister and I were little girls, we used to pour boxes of cereal onto the floor and take turns ‘swimming’ into shallow piles of stale grains, dried raisins clinging to our unbrushed hair.ideas of Desire often seems delicious until poured into practise. As Leonard Cohen once wrote, “nothing in this human realm is meant to work”, so watch it fall fast into messy, consequential snack. Jimi Infiniti riffs on a borderless drive, an endless, impossible love and a life spurred on by the all night search for the alternative milkshake. The video makes visual nods to tom rubnitz and it’s conceptual glamour that quickly shifts shape when it’s entirety is spilled upon the kitchen floor.”

With the release of the terrifying new Atraments full-length by ANIMA NOSTRA – the Sweden/UK-based industrial/doom duo founded by Henrik Nordvargr Björkk and Margaux Renaudin – just over a week from release through Malignant Records, Decibel Magazine has hosted a stream of “Composition For The Shadow Self.”
The lead track to the new album is an immediate sign of the tortured output awaiting the listener on Atraments, inducing a traumatizing state of helplessness right from the start. Decibel Magazine offers with their exclusive song premiere, “When it comes to dark industrial doom (heavy on the industrial), ANIMA NOSTRA might be some of the darkest,” continuing of the song itself, “On ‘Composition For The Shadow Self’ ANIMA NOSTRA create dark soundscapes that rumble and crash not unlike a storm building in the distance. Rumbling screams and growls add to the tumultuous but massive feeling of the song.”
