FUTURE USSES: Revolver Premieres “Heavenly Superperson” From Ambient Sludge Rock Unit Featuring Members Of Intronaut And Bereft

An astounding instrumental record of devastatingly heavy, oppressively slow, yet shimmering and lush sludge-paced rock, run through a filter of nightmarish psychedelia, and mixed by Converge’s Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studio, it’s hard to believe that The Existential Haunting is really a debut album. The trio’s sound comes across too shrewd, too canny, and too sophisticated. But while FUTURE USSES has only played a handful of shows in their short career, main songwriter Sacha Dunable has been a member of Intronaut for almost fifteen years and dabbled with various doom metal projects, like Bereft. FUTURE USSES takes small elements of what those bands do and magnifies them, combining the crushing, slow-motion power of doom with the atmosphere and dense harmonic tendencies of Intronaut.

Yoko Ono Shares “Woman Power”

Following twenty albums over 50 years, Yoko Ono’s Warzone is strikingly different from any record she has made previously, but it is also strikingly different from any album that anyone is making…

Yoko revisits and reimagines 13 songs from her past work, spanning 1970-2009, the lyrics and messages still pertinent—perhaps even more pertinent—in 2018. “The world is so messed up. Things are very difficult for everybody. It’s a warzone that we are living in…” says Ono. “I like to create things in a new way. Every day things change.”

Produced by Cirkut, with an appearance from French Montana and additional production from DJ Snake, the first guest artists to ever appear on one of GASHI’s singles, “Creep On Me” is a bright blast of fresh air and a perfect fit for the radio.

Grace Carter Shares New Track “Why Her Not Me”

As with all of Grace’s songs, “Why Her Not Me” strikes the listener to the core. Although its message could be universal, the meaning behind it is much more personal, tackling subjects such as jealousy and abandonment.

They’re everything I wanted to say but never could until now. “

Minor Moon – Sacrificial Animal single

Minor Moon’s latest single Sacrificial Animal, is a playful, guitar-driven spirit journey through layers of disillusionment. At once cynical and searching, dark-minded and light-footed, it’s the feverish soundtrack of a modern duality cracking open and still refusing to reveal an easy way out.

Centering around the juxtaposed images of a ritual animal sacrifice and an unkempt apartment, singer/songwriter Sam Cantor’s dusky lyrics float in and out of major licks and dramatic pauses, stopping to reflect at the song’s moment of greatest potency: “Maybe I feel betrayed by the holy and the profane.”

Julia Why? Reveal New Single ‘Pocket’

Forcing you to sit up and listen, Sydney based Julia Why? shares their new unapologetic single ‘Pocket’, taken from their forthcoming album. They’ll also be taking their music to the people with a mega east coast tour this September.

Drenched in distortion, ‘Pocket’ is slower than what’s expected for the garage-rock trio but no less devastating. Commenting on recent reforms, Julia Wylie explains, “I wrote this song after the government announced it wanted to drug test welfare recipients. When people are down and out, they need help – not another knee-jerk policy that demonises vulnerable people and does nothing to address what leads to addiction in the first place.”
