DIRTY STREETS TO RELEASE THEIR NEW LP “DISTRACTIONS” SEP. 14TH | UNVEIL NEW VIDEO
Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, a hub of historical soul and blues that crafted much of the world’s modern music, Dirty Streets have spent years on the road and in the studio forging their own style. They’ve moved from DIY, independant recordings to ambitiously self-produced studio ventures over the course of five albums. Their fifth, and latest, LP, Distractions, is an explosively charged follow-up to their acclaimed 2015 release White Horse, which contains a unique style of heavy, soulful and sometimes psychedelic rock. Recorded at the historic Sam Phillips Recording studio in Memphis, the album pushes the sonic palette of the band to the next level with an eclectic mix of songs. Drawing from influences that span from the bluesy twang of Howlin’ Wolf and Wilson Pickett, to the heady expansiveness of Hendrix and Donovan, Distractions lives in its own time and place. The album was recorded live in the studio by Matt Qualls and Wesley Graham in the room where the raw and explosive energy of the Yardbirds’ iconic “Train Kept a Rollin’” was originally put to tape. This album continues the tradition.

New GC PROJECT Official Video From The Forthcoming Album ‘Two Of A Kind’
Italian prog/fusionists GC Project are back with the first cut from their newly announced forthcoming album Two Of A Kind to be released worldwide via Sliptrick Records on October 16th, 2018. The track is Black Rose and is accompanied with an official video. Here’s how GC Project describes the concept behind the song and visuals; “The video speaks of love in the most absolute sense of the term; the protagonist writes a letter to the person who loves “listening” to the feelings of others, feelings common to all of us, that are felt towards a child, a sister, parents and even a person of the same sex. All these people within the same room, interact with each other without ever talking, but creating a cross-over of feelings, which give way to the protagonist to express his in the letter.”
