“WARNING: This song will turn any pair of shoes into dancing shoes. You may experience a twitch in your hip and a tap in your toes. Also has had history of making days better.” That’s Joshua Logan’s introduction to his new video for “City’s Alive,” the latest single off his self-titled debut album under the name Chief White Lightning. The Long Beach-based musician – who also fronts Austin’s stoner-rock trio The Blind Pets – is no stranger to a few hot moves, and combined with a fresh Nudie style suit by LA-based designer Rusty Cuts, turns this video into pure entertainment. Plus the track is bursting with energy, teetering on the edge of garage, psych, even country, with a steady piano trickle and a thumping beat that wraps the whole thing into one pretty package. So press play and get ready to have your day made better.

Mothers reveal new song and video for ‘Pink’
“’Pink’ deals with the passage of time,” explains Mothers lead singer and songwriter Kristine Leschper of their new song from upcoming sophomore album Render Another Ugly Method, coming out September 7 on ANTI- Records. “It describes a series of memories within cars – cars of my childhood, recent past, and present – and subsequent feelings of childlike removal and helplessness. The video aims to reciprocate these three vignettes of idling, through limited actions and minimalist set design divided into three parts.”
‘Beyond The Pale’ is the second album from Swedish Wheel In The Sky. A theme album about darkness and death. An album with a twilight touch and an essence of psychedelic rock and a close to death sensation. The album contains an overflow of melody and a dark gothic energy. Tracks as ‘Burn Babylon Burn’ and ‘The Only Dead Girl in the City’ holds both epic elements as catchy pop hooks. There is a feel-good vibe and large atmosphere over the track ‘Undead Love’ at the same time as the very spaced out song ‘Far Side of Your Mind’ shows the dynamic of the Swedish group. Wheel In The Sky is obsessed with various mystical and religious imagery, obscured politics and they harbor a morbid fascination for immolations and blood sacrifice, trying hard to incorporate it all into a tasteful setting. There is a peaceful sense of death over the album that will be released the 31st of August 2018 on The Sign Records.
