MORTIFERUM: Disgorged From Psychotic Depths Debut LP From Pacific Northwest Death Outfit Streaming
Profound Lore Records presents Disgorged From Psychotic Depths, the debut LP from Pacific Northwestern US-based MORTIFERUM. One of the most goring, savage, doom-drenched death metal records of the year, the album is now available to be streamed in its entirety on the eve of its official release.
Jimmy Whispers released his debut album, Summer in Pain, in 2015. Inspired by outsiders like Daniel Johnston, Gary Wilson and R. Stevie Moore, Whispers made a name for himself in Chicago before ever releasing a note of music through his zines, anti-gun street art and manic live shows. Now, four years later Whispers returns with “Your Car” and an accompanying self-directed video that is appropriately goth for October.
Long before the indie rock vampires got hip to the jam, Wet Tuna’s Matt Valentine and PG Six (Pat Gubler) were twisting folk-blues, the avant garde, west coast and Swedish psychedelia into a fat one in the beloved underground unit Tower Recordings.
Tower’s journey ended some time ago but MV and PG Six found new paths—Matt mostly around the MV & EE tree and Pat’s solo songwriter sojourns.

JAMES BLUNT REVEALS NEW TRACK “I TOLD YOU”
Described by Blunt as a “hymn to his sons,” “I Told You” is a memorable and deeply moving track from a loyal father to his growing-up-too-quickly children. “Hymn is a great word,” Blunt reflects. “When I realized that things were going on at the older end of my family, with my father, I looked at my children and thought: these are things I need to say to you. We need to live every moment to the full, and celebrate the relationships we have. That’s what this song is about: it’s a celebration, with a dash of melancholy.”
