MAYA B DELIVERS VIDEO FOR “SELENAS”
With a poet’s sensibility, Maya B explains, “Art was that whisper I heard at 5, telling me this is what you’re meant to do. Growing up, I was stuck between quick confessions and eternal silence. I was stuck between Mom and Dad. I was stuck between breaking the mold and being cemented into the cracks. I’m still stuck to the way art touched me…. Art is that feeling I get when I lose. Art was the push telling me to use this hurt as fuel. Art is spring food for my eyes while irritating my nostrils. Art is the calm sun squeezing through the blinds, waking me up and telling me, ‘get the fuck up and work’.”
Bliss Signal announces ‘Bliss Signal’ LP for True Panther / Profound Lore
BLISS SIGNAL is a new metal project between James Kelly (WIFE, Altar of Plagues) and UK DJ / Producer Jack Adams (Mumdance). Their eponymous debut album, out September 28th on True Panther Sounds / Profound Lore, is the stunning result of an unlikely partnership soldering an even more unlikely melange of sounds.
BLISS SIGNAL takes the frenzy and repetition of body-focused electronic music and pairs it with extreme metal’s core elements, resulting in a visceral, often hypnotic, hybrid that belongs neither on a dance floor nor in a mosh pit. Awash in ethereal textures, blast beats are simulated by drum machines while synths soar over heavily distorted shredding guitar. Throughout the album’s 8 tracks, Adams and Kelly trace a line between blackened metal, driving electronic rhythms and ethereal atmospherics. The result finds a common ground in the intensity of these sounds and how they affect the body.

Seattle duo NAVVI share a new single “Sampaguita” via All Things Go who says “Sharp vibes and sultry vocals permeate as subtle recollections of the past punctuate like grammatical perfection.” You can listen to + share the track here.
“It’s celebrating every version of myself – ” adds Kristin from NAVVI, “the versions that have already existed and passed, the versions that currently exist, and also the versions that have yet to exist. I’m celebrating the entire spectrum of me and taking pride in my experiences… as a woman, as a late bloomer. I am singing it to my highest self that I have yet to meet. I’m singing to my soft edges, and I’m singing to my sharp edges. I wanted this song to be a celebration of it all.”
“The songs are about being lonely,” Swamp Dogg says of Love, Loss, And AutoTune. While Auto-Tune has become a fixture of the modern pop music landscape, this is Swamp Dogg’s first major exploration of the device. “Every time I listen to some new music that everybody thinks is the greatest thing since hot biscuits, it’s full of Auto-Tune,” Swamp Dogg says. Like Kanye West on 808s & Heartbreak, Swamp Dogg utilizes the cold digital tone of Auto-Tune to convey a sense of emotional detachment during the album’s most anguished moments. Olson adds a range of inventive synth sounds and drum machines to Swamp Dogg’s sonic palette, as well as an impressively artful approach to arranging Swamp’s compositions. The result is a wildly fresh take on the classic Swamp Dogg sound. Swamp Dogg agrees, “I was knocked out by what I heard. I couldn’t believe it was me. It’s some of the greatest and outrageous music I’ve ever heard come out of the Swamp Dogg.”

KILLING GRACE Announce New Music Video “Say My Name”
Killing Grace is not afraid to genre bend with straight-up southern rock like “One Finger Salute” or something more hard-core as ‘Screaming In Silence”.

Energized by the yearlong celebration of his 50th Showbiz Anniversary, iconic pop singer, Engelbert Humperdinck feels the urge to start his next decade on a celebratory note as well.
