Drew McDowall announces ‘The Third Helix’ LP for Dais Records
For his third release on Dais, Drew McDowall reaches into concept, ritual, and immersion, in an exercise of unravelling the DNA of hallucination. The Third Helix is McDowall’s product of deconstructive exploration, twisting the fibers of being into new structure, shape, pattern, and pulse, without reconstituting its inscribed template.
The result is a true “third act,” in McDowall’s career, that has seen him peregrinate from the late-’70s art-punk of the trio Poems to his work with Psychic TV and Coil throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, into his current home of New York City, where he has composed with CSD, Compound Eye, as well his solo work. That triangulation is central to The Third Helix, as it begins with his dive into the existence of a sensory toolkit unique to McDowall before twisting faculties and re-configuring consciousness by honoring inherent power, cognizant of memory yet agnostic of context.

Coming off performances at this year’s Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, EDC Las Vegas and opening for Rusko, the rising duo PURGE continues to make headway with their rebellious and forward-thinking approach to electronic music.

The duo gained traction and heaps of media attention in the fall of 2016 with their debut release Feel Your Love via Skrillex’s imprint and media platform, Nest HQ. This EP inspired the duo to continue genre-bending while maintaining gritty, technical sounds and a haunting dark bass as their personalized paradigm. Since then, they have released music on Elysian Records and Artist Intelligence Agency’s imprint, Type 91, receiving support from the likes of Krewella, San Holo, QUIX and more.
Nashville-based singer/songwriter Guthrie Brown is set to release his forthcoming EP, Keeping On, next Friday, August 31. Produced by multi-Grammy Award-winner Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Tom Waits, Niall Horan), the five tracks on Keeping On expand Brown’s Americana-leaning sound into new territories of pop and soul. All Things Go notes, “Classic alternative pop sounds surround, taking us back to the golden age of contemporary songwriting.” The BMG-signed songwriter’s new music has been compared to that of Brett Dennen and Jason Mraz, while his full-band live shows draw to mind something as strong and pure as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Brown has been playing guitar and writing songs since he was six-years-old, and Keeping On is his fourth EP by the young age of twenty-four. It follows his Natural EP, also produced by King, of which the standout single “Wild Child” recently surpassed 500,000 streams on Spotify
