C-Bo, a West Coast rap veteran, has been a staple in Sacramento, a city infested with gang violence, for decades. Now, Sactown’s own Mozzy has risen to popularity despite of (or perhaps in part due to) the violence surrounding his music. Videos like “The Truth” and “I’m Just Being Honest” sparked shootings that killed people close to Mozzy, but he’s yet to bite his tongue, and now he has dissed the Sac-Town legend, C-Bo, with his “New Era New King” single. So, it was only right that C-Bo responded with his “Body 4 Body” song, which is the first single from his forthcoming album, “The Problem” set to drop in a few weeks.
GARY NUMAN SHARES NEW SONG “AND IT ALL BEGAN WITH YOU”
Savage (Songs From A Broken World) is an album with a narrative that’s set in an apocalyptic, post-global warming Earth in the not-too-distant future. There is no technology left and most of the planet has turned to a desolate desert wasteland. Food is scarce, water even more so and human kindness and decency are just a dim and distant memory. Western and Eastern cultures have merged, more because of the need to simply survive than any feelings of greater tolerance or understanding. It’s a harsh, savage environment, as are the survivors who still roam across it.

Using blunt and startling imagery, “Radical Eyes,” the new video from Prophets Of Rage draws a straight line between the civil rights era struggle of the 60’s and the ugly events that unfolded last week in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Currently celebrating 20 years piloting his revered record label Bella Union, Simon Raymonde has scaled another personal peak, a new collaboration with drummer Richie Thomas. They’re called Lost Horizons, and their stunning debut album, Ojalá, released 3rd November on Bella Union, is a rare sighting of two gifted musicians who, for different reasons, have been largely absent from music-making for the last 20 years. Yet the record is proof of a telepathic relationship through music, established when the pair first became collaborators and friends in the eighties. Raymonde was recently interviewed on NPR’s World Café on the project and the label.

Tom Freund feat. Ben Harper “Let My Love Open The Door”
Harper adds, “Tom and I are lifelong collaborators. As much brothers as friends. We have known one another longer than we haven’t. I hold him and his artistry dear. Anytime Tom calls for a session it’s an honor. Even considering our camaraderie, he has his pick of ‘first call’ players who all love playing with him, so I jump at the chance. Tom had been doing ‘Let My Love Open The Door’ in his live show. When we’d tour together, he would invite me to sit in on the song during his set, and we’d do it as a duo: ukulele and lap steel, and of course those two instruments of Hawaiian origin were born to be played together. Each time we’d play it live was more fun than the last, and that carried over into the studio recording. I feel the recorded version captures the essence of those live versions we did. And to get to play with one of the greatest living drummers: Matt Johnson, that’s the crowning jewel.”
No Echo has unveiled the crushing “Restarting” by Finnish noise rock/hardcore raging unit OVERDOSE SUPPORT, the new single pulled from their incoming debut album, Try Dying, nearing release in September through Kaos Kontrol.
Evangelia Releases Debut Single
On Evangelia’s upcoming debut EP, an attentive listener can feel the rhythmic pulse of the Mediterranean Sea where she spent summers as a kid writing lyrics on the balcony of her family’s farmhouse. Another listen will bring to light the influence of 60 years worth of folk heroes and rock bands and jazz trios trying to make a name for themselves at The Bitter End or Kenny’s Castaways. Perhaps, the most endearing experience you will hear though is that of the Jersey girl with an all-consuming passion for music that found her playing at clubs throughout the tri-state area both solo and with Little Rose; the alt-folk band she formed with some of the standout players she met through the open mics she organized while at Rutgers University.
Revlover present funky debut single “Johnny Brown”
The Legend of Johnny Brown is a song that can as easily be labeled “Gospel Funk” as it can be labeled “Dance” or “Disco”. Its distinct sound, simply stated, is a collision between different approaches to making music. On the one side is the thinking of Garcia who moved away from the Miami music scene years ago to start what became one of the fastest growing and most influential churches in South Florida. On the other side you have the modern approach of his long-time childhood friend and well-seasoned Miami music scene legend Tony Laurencio. Tony, also known as Smurphio, has played with almost everyone in town in addition to releasing a volume of electronic music over the last decade with his band, Afrobeta. This serendipitous reunion of two friends that started their first band in junior high along with the songwriting and powerhouse voice of Megan Morrison (Dorothy’s Surrender) has given birth to a unique yet familiar sound that effortlessly connects with the human heart.
Today, Los Angeles based outfit The Night Game premiered their first music video for debut single, “The Outfield” on The FADER. “I wanted to portray the lyrical intent of “The Outfield” and the idea of swimming upstream.

Monogold announce sixth album
The prolific NYC-based psych-pop trio recruited a group of young art students from The Good School, a mobile arts education school for young NYC students that specializes in stop-motion animation. Students at The Good School work out of schools all over Manhattan and Brooklyn, so Monogold went into a class to meet with a group of them and talked to them about food, candy and dreams, and the students created this absolutely adorable video that was as weird as the band hoped. All of the kids who worked on the video were between 6-7 years old and did all of the animation by hand, completely on their own. Pretty, pretty amazing!
