Watch G-Eazy’s “No Limit” Remix video

Jon Lindsay ‘Zebulon’ tackles racism & homophobia

Chicago’s File 13 Records has announced they will release ‘Zebulon’, the compelling yet irresistibly catchy new single from solo artist Jon Lindsay. Slated for worldwide release on December 22, this track features a ridiculously funky horn arrangement from Matt Douglas of The Mountain Goats and drums by John Howie Junior of Sarah Shook & The Disarmers.

‘Zebulon’ also happens to artfully tackle systemic bigotry—from the bigot’s point of view, no less. A sonic departure from Lindsay’s 2016 modern pop/rock opus ‘Cities and Schools’ (via File 13 Records), Lindsay describes the “Zebulon” sound as “sort of this psychedelic gospel pop”. While the vibe is indeed reminiscent of late-era George Harrison and Warren Zevon, and the horns, keys, congas and infectious hooks are in step with pop masters of the 1980s like Steve Winwood, something entirely new is happening here.

Ikkarus Take Flight

If you thought Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson was the only rock star balancing his musical career with that of an airline pilot, you’d be sadly mistaken. Javier Lardizábal took to the skies first in Santiago, Chile, then in his homeland of Mexico, all the while spending any available time writing and demoing songs himself in the studio. After nearly ten years of developing the tracks, he found his musical family in the form of Dave Ramos (drums) and Wens Castellanos García (keyboards), Javier himself taking on guitar and vocal duties. Ikkarus is the end result, a relentlessly funky slab of alternative rock which, though it touches on the sounds of the 90s Seattle music scene, has an energy and emotion entirely of its own.

Roo Panes – ‘A Message to Myself’

The first new material from Roo Panes since the release of his 2016 Sophomore album ‘Paperweights’, new single ‘A Message To Myself’ is available to stream now (with a new video now available)

Produced by Bassi Fox of Mt Wolf. “The song started as a minimalist piano concept, with a repetitive piano scale throughout” Roo explains. “It felt different from some of my previous tracks. I felt from the get go that the song needed a particular kind of treatment. Being called ‘A Message To Myself’ I wanted it to have a minimalist, intimate, meditative kind of feeling, but I also wanted to express the sheer power and drama of one’s thoughts and have an expansive feeling, so was bit of a balance. Hearing Mt Wolf’s style and knowing that we shared some similar musical tastes I thought he’d be great to work with on it”.

ROCKSTAR FRAME have announced today that Facebook has censored the cover of their latest single ‘Christmas Rape’ which came out on December 15, while forbidding its diffusion and promotion on the social media.

Rockstar Frame states: “Unbelievable. We’ve been trying to promote it for the past week (…) this seems impossible as Facebook has censored our cover deeming it pornographic, offensive and containing nudity. (…) Nipples and any other intimate part are completely covered. Conveniently enough though, Facebook allows a bunch of girls to post half naked and revealing pics simply because it brings them more people on the platform. There’s no pornography in a half naked body! Rockstar Frame have appealed Facebook’s decision and hope they’ll come back to their senses.””

Simultaneously ROCKSTAR FRAME has released a censored cover.

The band’s singles “Spooky Party” and “Alpha Go” premiered on Huffington Post and The 405 respectively. “Alpha Go” was also just shared on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, which has close to 600K followers. When talking about the new album the duo says, “Inspired by a combination of current events and technological breakthroughs, R.U.R. imagines a future in which humans have been replaced by artificial intelligence. To capture this dissonance between the natural and artificial, our production choices include detuned analog instruments paired with human vocals, polyrhythms comprised of body percussion and plant pots, and samples ranging from rainforest insects to outer space sounds. Hopefully these choices make our album resonate better with listeners.”

Austin’s new-wave punk outfit, ‘Sharks In The Deep End’

Regarding the track, frontman Tucker Jameson shares: “Based on actual events, this song’s roots harken all the way back to 7th grade, where I was blissfully in love, or so I thought, with my very first girlfriend. The holiday season was upon us and I’d saved up my allowance for the perfect gift, a big stuffed animal dog, which was wrapped beautifully in a big box with a big bow. Unfortunately for my fragile 13 year old heart, Christmas break also brought heartbreak and our gifts were never exchanged. For years that gift sat in the attic, as I believe it still does to this very day.”
