Brand New Single From Rachel Ana Dobken
The multi-talented artist has a knack for blending indie-rock, soul and jazz throughout her music, describing herself as “My Morning Jacket meets Lake Street Dive.” She’s been featured by The Aquarian Weekly, The Deli Magazine, NJ Arts, Relix Magazine, New York Times, Asbury Park Press, Travel+Leisure and more. All photographs for the record were taken by famed rock photographer, Danny Clinch, who has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, My Morning Jacket, Ryan Adams and many more. Rachel works closely with Clinch as his Music Director at his Transparent Gallery in Asbury Park.
The track premiered via Impose Magazine where the band shared, “This song is meant to be a fun, poppy ode to our purpose and a follow-up to our old festival tune, ‘Shakin’ & Swayin’. We give ‘Shakin’ a little shout-out in the chorus of ‘Gimme.’ At our live shows, it’s important to us that we create an inclusive atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and feels like they can be themselves, and that’s what ‘Gimme’ is all about. We beseech our audience to let their hair down and send us back the same love and energy we’re trying to send to them.”
URGENT – PUSSY RIOT’S PETER VERZILOV IN CRITICAL CONDITION – POSSIBLE POISONING
‘First it was his vision, then his speech, and then his legs’ Pussy Riot member Pyotr Verzilov is hospitalized in critical condition and friends fear he was poisoned
Pyotr Verzilov, a member of Pussy Riot and one of the publishers of the independent news website Mediazona, was hospitalized in critical condition late on September 11. His partner, Veronika Nikulshina, told Meduza that he’s started losing his sight, speech, and mobility.
Pyotr Verzilov is currently receiving treatment at the toxicology wing of Moscow’s Bakhrushin City Clinical Hospital. Verzilov’s friends told Meduza that his mother came to the hospital on the evening of September 12, but staff wouldn’t let her see her son, and even refused to describe his condition or inform her about his preliminary diagnosis. “[At the hospital] they said they don’t have the right to disclose any information… They sent her away and were rude. They said they can’t admit her. They kept pointing at this sheet of paper, saying that they can’t disclose [any information] until the patient signs a release himself, but he’s unconscious,” Verzilov’s friend told Meduza.
Last week, Norwegian noise/art rock enigmas ÅRABROT released their Who Do You Love full-length via Pelagic Records. Described as, “a universe unto themselves,” by Louder Sound calling frontman Kjetil Nernes, “an iconoclast for dark and dysfunctional times, whose perverted dogma you would do well to fall under the sway of,” the Norwegian Grammy award winning ÅRABROT carry all the hallmarks of a sonic spectrum that has always been a wide and wild field of purposeful mismatches; a world of friction between the noisy, the disharmony, and the tension, with rivalling moments of harmonic relief.
