Today OBJECT AS SUBJECT share the stunning, feminist led video (directed by Dave Paige) for “REMOVAL” with Paper Magazine.
LIZZIE WEBER WEST COAST DATES THIS SUMMER
Lizzie Weber – a current resident of Seattle via St. Louis, MO – will hit the road this month with headlining dates in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles. In July, she will support JD Souther for two nights and will make a stop at the Seattle Acoustic Festival in August.
This summer, Lizzie will release a self-produced, three song EP titled, “You.” “I wrote these pieces many years ago, after a traumatic break-up. They were so brutally honest that I couldn’t bring myself to record them for a while, even though personal lyrical candor has never been difficult for me–I couldn’t face them. When enough time had passed, I felt compelled to record them as I know these feelings to be universal for those of us who have ever felt the pain of lost love.”
They say life moves in seasons, everybody that enters your life is for a reason, and each year when summer comes around, the warm months bring promise. Perhaps the days stretch out into the horizon as the rush of a new crush unfolds, or there’s a sense of freedom from the dark winter days of past. Essentially there’s a renewal: all of the bad is reflected on for a minute before being pushed to the side, painted over, released to make space for something new and better.

Hey, seen the new gun violence awareness video by Anjulie & Pusher “All We Can Do?”
“All We Can Do” is an emotionally-driven pop track that covers the current issue of gun violence we’re facing as a country, community, and society in 2018:
“I wrote ‘All We Can Do’ after the Vegas shooting about the complacency around gun violence and the culture shock I had being a Canadian in America and seeing how common place it has become over the years. The song is a satirical play on how ignorance is bliss” – Anjulie
Steampunk inspired ‘Alice’s Night Circus’ premiere new single with Louder Than War!
Read between the lines of a familiar fairytale and you may stumble across a rabbit hole you never noticed before. Those curious enough to follow their ears into the black will be met with a world of escapism, narrated by the weird and wonderful music of Alice’s Night Circus.
Ringmaster Julia Scott orchestrates the magnificent sounds of Alice’s Night Circus. Juggling a smorgasbord of influences with a pop sensibility, the Sheffield-born artist walks the tightrope between her theatrical world and the mainstream sound-du-jour. Eccentric single ‘Curious World’ is the ultimate demonstration of this: what begins as an off-kilter waltz that harbours her eccentricities eventually bursts into a grandiose chorus, showcasing her earworm hooks.
Mini Mansions Share Surreal New Music Video for “Works Every Time”
Mini Mansions share the satirical music video for their new single “Works Every Time” from their recently announced EP Works Every Time EP, available September 28. BlackBook premiered the “surreal” video yesterday.
“We knew we wanted to work with Colin Hanks again after his amazing performance in our “Any Emotions” video, and this time thought we would use his expertise behind the camera,” explain Mini Mansions. “He wisely chose Bob Baker’s Marionette theatre, an LA institution and venue we had all visited as kids growing up in Los Angeles. Colin was able to seamlessly marry this song’s message with the theater puppeteer’s imagination and creativity. We have him to thank as he really pulled some strings to deliver this spectacle. Colin Hanks, Works Every Time.”
Hear The Holydrug Couple’s “Waterfalls” ahead of their new album
The Holydrug Couple’s latest single “Waterfalls” is a woozy, intoxicating ballad that reworks the feel of 60s and 70s psychedelia with modern production and dizzying synthesised textures.
Speaking about the track Ives Sepúlveda Minho explains: “I wrote a demo for this about two years ago, on a morning that I had a bad hangover. At the time I was really into this sort of melodic/chill-out, instrumental house music and Exile on Main St.-like ballads. It was the last song that I recorded on Hyper Super Mega and the lyrics are very abstract, they have metaphors of what it means to meet someone and fall in love.”
Beacon shares “Losing My Mind” video
“Losing My Mind” is Beacon’s boldest sonic departure to date and a glimpse into the future. On the somber ballad, Thomas Mullarney III sings of stability, whether romantic or spiritual, and the comfort in knowing someone remains in the absence of light.
