LA-based roots-rock band Jason Heath And The Greedy Souls is set to release its new album, But There’s Nowhere To Go, on October 13, 2017 via Industrial Amusement. It is the band’s second album for Wayne Kramer’s label. The record is a cry from the broken belly of the American Dream, where time, neglect, and corruption have taken their toll on this grand experiment called the U.S. of A. Seems like there’s nothing left to do but howl at the moon, and set out through the wilderness of the unknown in search of a new direction.
The new songs were mostly written as the band was on tour after the U.S. Presidential election last November. Traveling the country in its aftermath, Heath saw and heard from all walks of American life and put those observations into his new work. “It couldn’t be helped,” says Heath. “We are losing our national identity. Everyone is looking for someone else to blame. Faith in the status quo has been lost. There is a general feeling of confusion and misrepresentation, no matter who one voted for. There is a national ambience of panic, a fear of the unknown, and an overall distrust of any institution.”

ALASKALASKA song ‘Patience’
ALASKALASKA is an art-pop 6 piece from London. They make beautiful groove-aden music that seamlessly blends jazz, disco, funk and R&B into a bold and playful sound uniquely their own; synthetic beats play alongside live drums, delayed guitars and swirling saxophones to create something musically rich and delightfully intricate. Band leader and vocalist Lucinda twists brooding and introspective lyrics – akin to the words of Arthur Russell – into infectious melodies reminiscent of Warpaint, Dirty Projectors or Talk Talk, which demand repeat listens and could as easily soundtrack an afternoon alone as they could a party. They’ve built a cult following and reputation as extraordinary performers through a handful of low-key London shows.

Today, Connecticut’s The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die premiere their video “Marine Tigers” at Noisey.
The song “Marine Tigers” is based off content from singer David Bello’s father José Bello’s new book Marine Tigers that he wrote about his experience coming to New York from Puerto Rico in the ‘40s. Bello explains, “Marine Tiger was the ship that carried people from Puerto Rico, and so the white people in New York started calling all the Puerto Rican people ‘Marine Tigers.’ The idea of being named after something that you’re not excited about ties into that feeling of always being foreign.” The song also references his mother’s personal history as a second-generation American of Lebanese descent—as well as his own upbringing in a predominantly white West Virginia town.
Bond Twins Share “Dance Night” Track On Consequence Of Sound
Typical narratives about twins center on innate, idiosyncratic closeness. Most people expect identical twins in particular to possess inexplicable synergy from birth. Andrew and Brendan Bond are not those kind of twins.
The song premiered in an interview piece with Culture Collide where the band’s Sivan Lioncub (electric violin, lead vox) shared, “When my liver failed from an allergy to antibiotics, I felt like a prisoner in the hospital, and was in complete denial. I wouldn’t let the band cancel any shows. We were supposed to play Noise Pop, SXSW and Treefort in Boise and I was convinced we’d be going. It was a hard reality to face when I realized I wasn’t going anywhere. I felt so sad, like I let the band down and I had no control over anything that was happening. Writing was something I could do from the hospital bed. I keep a journal, and my entries from that time are angry, or spaced out, hallucinating fantasies in a Dilaudid stupor. Many of the lyrics of the album were written during this time. We do all of our recording at home, where Chris has his studio, Donut Time, so for lack of being able to tour, we focused on what we could do, which was record. My energy level was scary low, but we recorded anyway. Recording music was a total escape from otherwise terrifying times.”

In the dimly lit interior of a small nightclub, where the stale smell of a thousand extinguished cigarettes drowns out the smell of spilt beer and broken dreams, a band plays against a backdrop of cheap golden tinsel. Outside, palm trees line the night’s horizon. In the years to come, the streets will swell into highways and interstates, but for now Los Angeles is still a young city growing daily with transplants from across the United States, all looking for a new life. It’s still a city largely cut off from the rest of the country, and in the years before the Manson family forever tarnishes the infinite hope of the Western enclave and before the Hell’s Angels of Altamont interrupt rock n’ roll’s peaceful trajectory with unprecedented violence, there is still a dreamy California sound for those dark rooms suffused with neon light. The three women of L.A. Witch wouldn’t be born for several decades, but their sound transports you back to those warm Californian nights in smoky rooms.
Excited to share his new track, “Bigger,” with the world Nairn says, “I’ve been fortunate enough to tour the world over the past few years playing at some of the most amazing venues, with such incredible crowds, and this track really evolved from the sound of my live set.

Pageants was formed by Rebecca Coleman in the aftermath of leaving Avi Buffalo (Sub Pop) in 2010, a band in which she was a founding member at the age of sixteen. Frustrated with clashing personalities and differences in musical sensibility, she, along with two other Avi Buffalo defectors, set out to revive the simplicity and spirit of earlier days. Diaristic yet dreamy and abstract in nature, her songs merge pop levity with melancholic lyrical undercurrents. Collaborating with boyfriend Devin O’Brien to flush out demos, their debut LP, ‘Forever’ was close to completion in 2015. When label interest around the album hit a wall, the band decided to hold off on finishing the record while pursuing other opportunities. Coleman continued to write, O’Brien focused on engineering and producing, while also being picked up by Cherry Glazerr (Secretly Canadian) to tour as their bassist and drummer Dylan Wood went on to play with Best Coast (Harvest). Inspired by fresh material and perspectives, Pageants decided to finish ‘Forever’ earlier this year and will be releasing their debut album via Eye•Dull Records.
