SLOW DAKOTA RELEASES “OBELISK” SINGLE
“Obelisk” is a very bold choice for the first single. The song contains a minute-plus synthesized pan flute solo, which is hard to justify, but in “Obelisk,” it represents the whirling, frantic voice of a tornado. A tornado that comes to terrorize a small, countryside village. Sauerteig grew up in the cornfields of Indiana, where tornadoes are an annual fact of life. They’re immensely powerful, yet graceful, nimble and coy. Almost apologetic for the mess they’re making. The “Tornado” is an intentional ambiguous metaphor throughout the entire album. Is the “tornado” a metaphor for global warming, or God, or both? A question that Sauerteig leaves that up to the listener.

People Years Share New Single “Recognizable Animal” in Advance of April Release
People Years is a dream of an amalgamated spitball wadded by the nerdy version of you and made from subterranean and atmospheric particles of bands like Luna, Pavement, Pink Floyd, and LCD Soundsystem, loaded into a straw, and launched into the midnight hair of that Robert Smith-worshipping goth girl named Summer, who sat a few rows in front of you in class. The one who despises everything Americana. The one who seems to know something that the others don’t. Summer pinches that spit ball out of her hair like a fly between her thumb and index finger, walks it over in her Doc Martins and ask you in black-lipstick language if you lost something. You stammer. She feigns anger, then brightens. She smiles, and maintains eye contact as she places said spitball on her tongue and disappears it down the proverbial hatch. You’re in love.

BEAR: Belgian Progressive Metal Unit To Release Propaganda Full-Length Via Pelagic Records
“At various points, Propaganda dips its toes into the mathcore experimentalism of early Dillinger Escape Plan and Car Bomb, the fiery noise rock of Unsane and Today Is The Day, and – as on Propaganda’s first single, ‘Apollo’s Heist’ – the sublimely elastic groove of Meshuggah and Intronaut. All of these elements are wrapped up in adroitly-written songs that combine sheer aggression with infectious hooks in the best possible way.” — MetalSucks
