J.Antonette has released the music video for her single, “Drunk On Me”
“Drunk On Me” was directed by Logen Christopher of Stormlight Pictures. The video captures the lyrics and instrumentation by depicting the dark, raw, and edgy visuals that perfectly highlight her sultry vocals.
“I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone for this music video. Drunk On Me is about being addicted to a toxic love who you just can’t seem to let go of. You are addicted to the person who is addicted to something else, but you love them anyway. Some have thought it was a breakup song, but it’s not. Drunk On Me is about loving someone through their very worst. Even to points where it’s ultimately unhealthy for you. It’s about that inner struggle some of us face. Do we stay? Do we leave? We see the good and there is so much love… but is it enough?
Milwaukee’s Guerrilla Ghost has been one of the city’s most consistently prolific outfits since coming together in 2016, steadily releasing a potent stream of singles and EPs before delivering their debut full length in 2018. The duo, which consists of rapper Bad Graphics Ghost and producer Tron Jovi, aren’t shy about their love of everything from UK Grime to US Grind, and have spent the last four years crafting an interesting cocktail of sounds that aren’t often found together. At the core, Guerrilla Ghost are a hip hop outfit, but with both members having an extensive background in metal and punk, the group’s sound also reflects some of the more aggressive pockets of the American underground. All of these influences came together on their 2018 effort, Perpetually Sad Motion Machine, which found the band strengthening their focus via the help of a handful of collaborators, from Carnage the Executioner to fellow Milwaukeean Lorde Fredd33. A remix album followed, which featured contributions from Godflesh and Jesu founder Justin K. Broadrick and Chicago based musician and producer Sanford Parker. A busy year of live appearances followed, with the group serving as local support for Kool Keith, Mac Lethal, Blueprint, Mega Ran, Carnage the Executioner and 9th Prince. Ever prolific, though, the band continued to keep busy and are now preparing for the release of their sophomore full length, We Get What We Deserve, slated for release on July 31 via Triple Eye Industries.

Watch “Smoke” by Bendrix Littleton (ex-Bent Denim)
Bendrix Littleton is the writing and recording project of Nashville-via-Dallas musician Bennett Littlejohn. The project’s namesake, Maurice Bendrix—the protagonist of Graham Greene’s 1951 novel The End of the Affair—is described by enotes.com as “sometimes an unreliable narrator, for he is so consumed by jealousy, self-pity, self-hatred, and bitterness, that he measures everyone else by himself…[and] confesses that from time to time ‘a demon’ takes possession of his brain.” It’s an appropriate moniker for the self-aware, malaise-filled songs of Bendrix Littleton’s debut. While in the album is imbued with the contradictions and painful beauty of the modern American South (as opposed to Greene’s WWII-era London), the hazy, solitary narrative voice remains.
Most Expensive Motown Vinyl Record Ever Sold Comes To American Airwaves For First Time, Courtesy Of Uncle Nearest

DEAD TREE SEEDS (Fra) “Push the Button” @ Thrash Metal
From the ashes of the Thrash TRIAKANTHOS project, Nico and Alex decided in 2009 to continue the adventure, and completed a line-up by finding Franck on guitar, Tom on bass and Alban “Shamane” on vocals.
The foundations of a solid band resolutely oriented towards old-school thrash are laid.
The band makes its first concerts in very modest rooms but keeps a steady rhythm. The arrival of Pierre to replace Franck gives a more technical and ambitious direction to the sound, without leaving aside the brutal violence and they continue to scour the halls of the Paris region (in particular the Bastille Stage) with a few dates in the south of France.
The style becomes more complex, going from a thrash inspired by the great classics of Metallica or Megadeth and Slayer, to the most violent fringe of the first Kreator or Sepultura, passing by some more groovy forays like Testament or Pantera.
