EMA today shared “Dark Shadows,” a second track from her forthcoming EP, Outtakes From Exile, set for release on February 2nd via City Slang. “I wrote ‘Dark Shadows’ for the film 20th Century Women,” explains Erika M. Anderson. “There was a moment when they were looking for a band to play in a punk club and thought maybe EMA would be a good fit. That didn’t end up happening, but I was intrigued by the premise – badass women living in 1970s Santa Barbara getting into punk. That’s all I knew! But I wrote the song with that in mind. I think of it as a survivor song, someone leaving a dark past behind, emerging again into the world. Whoever it is they definitely are wearing sunglasses.”
Anenon channels Philip Glass on “Two for C” streaming now
Anenon’s Tongue, the follow up to 2016’s breakthrough Petrol, is a beautiful album. That’s an adjective whose meaning has practically been obliterated by Hallmark prose and hyperbolic idiocy. But occasionally, a work of art digs deep enough to excavate the underlying meaning that existed in antiquity and figures to persist until we’re soil and dust.

Club 8 share “Fire” from the upcoming album “Golden Island”
Club 8’s sound is getting increasingly difficult to pin down. “Fire” is possibly the closest they come to a straightforward pop song (it even has an epic chorus!) on “Golden Island”.

Jack White shares new album details

BOARDING HOUSE REACH sees Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern. Written and conceived while holed up in a spartan apartment with literally no outside world distractions, White exclusively used the same kind of gear he had when he was 15 years old (a quarter-inch four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation). The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain — crunching rock ‘n’ roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country — all remapped and born anew to fit White’s matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation. BOARDING HOUSE REACH is a testament to the breadth of Jack White’s creative power and his bold artistic ambition.
The track is the latest from her forthcoming debut album, set for release this spring on Interscope Records/Virgin EMI Records.
“We can find solace in the fact that we have to go through the bad stuff to truly get to the good,” says Uchis of the track. “Just because you’re losing at the moment doesn’t mean you’ve lost yet. The storm may be scary now but it’s how your flowers bloom later, and paradise is just beyond the rainbow.”

The band’s follow up, titled Unearth, which will be released on January 12th, 2018, incorporates similar themes drawn from their first record but makes a deliberate shift in production; the songs touch on love, loss, and total disillusionment, but rather than hiding these ideas behind a cacophony of layered samples and synthesizers, Crater sheds itself of any unnecessary weight in hopes of being more direct. Unearth poises itself as a pop record while occasionally nodding at the duo’s more experimental cravings.
THE SHINS SHARE NEW TRACK “HEARTWORMS (FLIPPED)”
When James Mercer wrote, produced, and recorded Heartworms, he had this desire for an alternate version, an opposite version. The original track order is reversed and songs are reborn, yet the lyrics and melody remain intact. “The Fear” is transformed from tender lament into a growling garage rock cut, “Dead Alive (Flipped)” is given a more sober and serious take, while “Half a Million” is reworked into a reggae and rocksteady-tinged reboot. The reasoning was to showcase the versatility and strength of Mercer’s songwriting, the result is The Worm’s Heart.

It was part of the story and it was part of the healing. It goes out to the people who aren’t sure tomorrow can be better. It can. Making this video was therapeutic in a way. It was filmed in an abandoned psychiatric hospital whose focus was once to bring beauty from tragedy.”
Hope falls into two halves—the songs written earliest in the process address the near death of Tom’s brother and explore the fragile nature of self-esteem and nostalgia for childhood. The second half is about finding a home and hope in fatherhood.
