GAEREA Releases New Song, “Conspiranoia”
Speaking of the video, GAEREA comments, “Shot in the ancient Streets of Porto, Gaerea’s birth city, ‘Conspiranoia’ is much more than just an agonizing and mesmerizing voyage into the Vortex’s own Depths. Completely filled with small Easter Eggs throughout the clip which I know very few will be able to spot, the music video for the third and last ‘Limbo’ single crosses the line, the natural border between reality and the mere perception inside our memories, ‘deja vus’ and romanticizing adventures. This is Gaerea being trapped inside its own world. The Martyrs inside Limbo.”
ANDY ROCKS – new single “Digital Detox”
Melodic, maybe a little vintage here and there, straightforward and a bit dirty, but all in all good old rock music – that could be a rough description of the music of Andy Rocks.
wifisfuneral Announces Upcoming ‘PAIN?’ Project, Shares Melodic “End of Story” Single
He made his name with tight technical rhymes, but wifisfuneral is ready to show off another side of his artistry. Preparing his first new project of 2020, wifi announces PAIN?, his upcoming project. Though previous tracks found wifi experimenting with auto-tune, including fan favorite single “Run,” PAIN? proves that wifi has fully integrated melody into his cerebral songwriting. The new project finds the 23-year-old rapper crafting infectious hooks and expressing the deeply-felt emotion evoked in his lyrics.
‘Airport’ explores the crossroads of a relationship, playfully using a quote from Esther Perel – creator of the podcast Where Should We Begin – as a sample. About the inspiration to do so, Doustra says, “I feel like (Perel) is providing my generation with words on how to talk about these subjects. It feels like romanticism and relationships are being redefined at the moment and I find it interesting to listen to these ideas and think about them.”
The band shares: “‘Pretty Lies’ came out of the first time we met with Sir Sly’s Landon, Jason and Hayden. Songwriting sessions between bands can become complicated tinder dates with simultaneous multiple partners, but we’re happy that everyone swiped right and turned a pretty lie into one of our most creative and fun songs in the RRN catalogue.”
The Two Romans announce debut UK album release
The Two Romans have announced their debut album, Everything.Now!, will be getting a UK release on October 16th and will include five exclusive bonus tracks.
Formed by the Zanella brothers, singer Samuele and guitarist/singer Mattia, The Two Romans effortlessly channel pop sensibilities and infectious melodies alongside anthemic choruses to create pulsing and fervently charged indie alt-rock.
The video was directed by Stefan Ekström, who explains “We wanted to find a place for these young people’s own universe, the dreamy gymnastics hall, and the skate park, and then end up on top of a hill where the dance continues forever.” Award-winning choreographer, Niki “Awandee” Tsappos, has won two Guldbagge awards for her work in the documentary Niki and Martha. “I have been a big fan of Swedish dancer and choreographer [Niki] ever since I saw the documentary Niki and Martha and I’ve been wanting to find a good excuse to ask her for a collaboration ever since. I was so happy when she accepted the role as choreographer and casting director for the video,” Brun says of working with Tsappos.

“This is an album for the purists,” says The Loft Club frontman/songwriter Daniel Schamroth. “I’m one of those old school romantics who still practices the dying art of donning the headphones and consuming an album from start to finish via candle light, with sleeve in hand.

GUIDED BY VOICES Announce New LP ‘Mirrored Aztec’ Share 1st Track “Haircut Sphinx”
When we last heard from Guided by Voices, they had released an astonishing four albums in just over 12 months. Each has a distinctive creative identity: Zeppelin Over China was a meat-and-potatoes double album, Warp and Woof was a return to the band’s low-fidelity roots and under-two-minute earworms, Sweating the Plague was a slice of moody stadium rock, and Surrender Your Poppy Field was an unpredictable grab-bag of all of the above. After venturing through the tangled brambles of Plague and Poppy Field, we’re treated to a sunny Summer reprieve, a relentless barrage of hooks.
The new collaboration between London-based German singer, songwriter and producer Matilda Eyre and Devon-based producer PALMR is a musical personification of finding your freedom. Through the lens of progressive electronica and indie-pop melodies, ‘Water’ is the soundtrack to loss and beginning again.
‘”Water’ is about stepping into your truth, your strength and finally going for everything that is important to you. It’s finally leaving all the heaviness behind and being free to run towards your goals. The song is wrapped in a delicate story about losing someone close to you in the beginning of the journey.” – Matilda Eyre
It has been quite the year for the electropop connoisseur Discrete; whose passion and creativity for dance music has guided him into becoming the multi-talented producer that he is today. Fusing pop with dance influences, the Swedish artist will soon release his debut EP ‘EXPLORE’ on June 26th, 2020.

My Morning Jacket to release new album this Friday, July 10
My Morning Jacket are releasing their new album, this Friday July 10. Out via ATO Records, The Waterfall II was massively inspired by the band’s idyllic surroundings in Stinson Beach, CA — and a sense of charmed isolation that frontman Jim James likened to “living on our own little moon.” There, the Kentucky-bred five-piece ended up creating over two dozen songs at the mountaintop studio known as Panoramic House. Though they flirted with the idea of putting out what would have been a triple album, the band ultimately decided that less would be more at the time and divided the project into two halves, releasing the first segment as The Waterfall: a 2015 full-length that earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. My Morning Jacket are now set to share the second half of the project as The Waterfall II, an unforeseen and timely continuation of a psychic and sonic journey begun long ago.
