Night Tongue release “exquisite” video for “Drift,” full-length out October 11th

Australian darkwave duo Night Tongue premiered “Drift,” the latest single from their upcoming LP, The Stag King, earlier today with a haunting video for the eight-and-a-half minute song.

“Drift” officially premiered yesterday with a glowing, Halloween-tinged track review over at Last Day Deaf. “Almost 9 minutes of melancholic, darkwave soundscapes, like an invisible hug that would give you the maximum comfort,” the site praised. “Take a deep breath, this Aussie post-punk veteran duo will pin you down with this sublime slow-burner.”

NY’s United Waters are back with a new single “Arrowheads”

United Waters was formed in the twilight years of Mouthus, around 2009-2010, as a solo project of Brian Sullivan. It was an outlet for more song-based structures that had been drifting around the past decade and coalescing in the Arbitrary Signs imprint’s release of the 2010 LP “Your First Ever River.” Flushing out the project to play live, Patrick Cole [KHF] on 2nd guitar and Robert Mayson [Grey Daturas / Skydiver] on percussion joined in 2010. 2012 saw Chris Shields [Mr. Transylvania / Alien Trilogy] come in on percussion and new material being written, which would become the “Sunburner” LP released on Bathetic Records in 2014.


He takes viewers on a tour of South Florida hip-hop hotbed Broward County down Oakland Park Blvd and through the hood he calls home. Along the way, he discusses his come-up, the genesis of the F$O crew, and why it’s always “Fly Shit Only.” The revealing piece cuts between never-before-seen footage of the group and a confessional-style interview with Dinero. Get to know Florida’s fieriest new team as they prepare for a series of wins in 2019 and beyond.

Steve Forbert To Release Limited Edition Remastered Vinyl For Jackrabbit Slim’s 40th Anniversary

A little over 43 years ago, Meridian, MS, native Steve Forbert boarded a train bound for New York City. Twenty-one years old at the time, Forbert, with his guitar and harmonica, spent two years working his way up from street performer living at the YMCA to filling historic Greenwich Village clubs and signing a major label contract. By 1979, Forbert had really hit his stride, releasing Jackrabbit Slim, which produced his first top 40 hit, “Romeo’s Tune,” and afforded Forbert the opportunity to share his music with the world. On November 8th, 2019, Blue Rose Music will be releasing an extremely limited edition vinyl reissue of Jackrabbit Slim, remastered by the legendary Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound (The Eagles, The B-52s, Dave Matthews, Norah Jones). 500 copies will be pressed on red-colored wax, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Kirin J. Callinan & Hubert Lenoir collaboration and Skope Mag

This track is his first new music since the album, and came about when he and Kirin saw each other backstage at a festival in France. They didn’t speak, but Hubert DMed him the next day and asked him if he’d want to collaborate and a week later Kirin flew to Naples to meet him and they made this track. It’s a bit of a departure for Hubert, whose album was essentially a glam record (it drew a lot of Bowie and Prince comparisons), and this one is pretty much a warped dance track, although there’s still a little bit of a Prince feel in there.
