7Horse To Release Fourth Album ‘Superfecta’ On December 7th
7Horse will release their forthcoming studio album titled Superfecta on December 7th. The 11 track set is the band’s fourth studio album and the follow up to 2016’s Livin in a Bitch of a World.
7Horse, formed in 2011, is comprised of longtime friends and musical partners Phil Leavitt and Joie Calio, who first played together in the platinum alternative rock band dada. Leavitt explains: “We made some great music in dada and it took us all over the world (notching a hit song like Dizz Knee Land will do that for you). But we knew it was time for something new. A new approach, more raw, more primal. It can be hard to start over and leave the past behind. But there’s something deeply satisfying about breaking free from expectations and really testing yourself. It makes you feel alive.”

BANGLADEAFY: Decibel Magazine Burns Off Some “Steam”
Through their two prior EPs – 2013’s The Briefcase and 2016’s Narcopaloma – the BANGLADEAFY duo has proven itself as an unstoppable and almost unclassifiable force under the umbrella of technical metal. The band’s moniker reflects its two members, merging reference to bombastic drummer Atif Haq’s Bangladeshi bloodline and the physical impairment of bassist/pianist/vocalist Jon Ehlers, who, alongside his two sisters, was born with sensio-neural hearing loss. The band has created a singular style of avant-progressive, technically super-proficient, and overall stunning style of pummeling sound that comes roaring forth on their debut album, Ribboncutter.

Girl Ultra and Fntxy are accomplices of the lack of love in the video for “Bye Bye”
The ambition to successfully transfer an African-American musical aesthetic, such as R & B, to a mental and social idiosyncrasy such as that of Mexico, has had attempts with diverse results over the decades. However, it is not until the most recent generation of artists, that this exercise has been carried out with greater cunning and understanding, causing what, previously felt as a copy, now be a genuine branch of a specific creative universe, a natural exploration of that same sound, but on the other side of an increasingly symbolically unnecessary border. And this has been possible, above all, thanks to some work teams that have managed to add their identity to a product that is equally and strangely equal. Of course, Finesse Records is one of them, and Girl Ultra, as part of Finesse, is one of the necessary protagonists of this phenomenon.
