Finally, there’s a cvlt worth joining: May 7, 2021 will see mysterious Finnish dark occult rock act CVLT OV THE SVN release its grim and addictive first full length, We Are The Dragon, on Napalm Records.

Creatively exploring his one-track mind, YN Jay is a major contributor to the Michigan rap lexicon. Coming through with a colorful new chapter in the adventures of “Coochie Man,” Jay shares “Coochie Language,” his new video single. Produced by ENRGY, YN Jay’s favorite producer, who combines syncopated kicks with detuned synth sounds, “Coochie Language” showcases Jay’s unique pocket, smirking ad-libs and stop-start flows, packing in plenty of over-the-top quotables: “B*tch ask me who that at the door, that’s my daddy knockin’.” Directed by 2M Digital, the video is powered by Jay’s million watt smile, as he kicks back in a private room in the club under neon lights and a starry ceiling. Coming hot on the heels of Jay’s appearance on Lil Yachty’s Michigan Boy Boat album, “Coochie Language” is the prolific rapper’s third new video in less than 10 days, following the videos for two 2020 Flint collabs, “The Mafia” ft.

New Single VEINS

“Veins” is about the endless battle with your inner demons. The negotiation. The self-medication of those feelings and the addiction that can come with them.

It came about the same way our innermost and darkest desires appear, out of the fog of the subconscious. Creeping closer and closer to the forefront of the mind.

AWAKE AT LAST Release New Single “Armageddon” + Official Lyric Video

CULTED Shares Official Music Video for “Crush My Soul”

The band comments, “We are longtime admirers of Godflesh’s body of sound and have attempted to respectfully interpret and do justice to an incredible song. ‘Crush My Soul’ was the first music we recorded for the album ‘Nous’ and in many ways laid the emotive foundation for its modus operandi. We heartily agree with Decibel Magazine who eloquently stated, ‘In a parallel universe, [Crush My Soul] would be the name of the album.'”

Karaboudjan Shares “Let Go”

Southern California-based indie psych-rock artist Karaboudjan (mem. Tycho) shares his second single off his solo debut, IMAGO, due out September. Combining dark synth pads with lo-fi dance beats and fuzzy techno soundbites, “Let Go” creates a washed out electronic ambience reminiscent of Tame Impala, Grizzly Bear, or MGMT. But the dreamy psychedelic slow burner is not just ear candy; “Let Go” explores grief in its many forms. A tender ode to his late father, Karaboudjan’s sophomore single showcases not only Kim’s artistry and production chops (tightened up by years of playing with Tycho), but also an astute understanding of acceptance and loss. Simultaneously vulnerable and celebratory, “Let Go” creates a musical sanctuary where grief is left to simmer, percolate, and settle.

Rising singer, songwriter, and producer DENM has released the official music video for his latest single “Califas” with Jared Watson of Dirty Heads off his debut studio album, Slum Beach Denny, out May 14th via Ineffable Records. The visual for the reggae/rock hybrid, which highlights DENM and Watson’s slick vocals and eclectic styles, was shot around Huntington Beach and San Diego, paying homage to those who have also grown up around Southern California.


In speaking about the inspiration behind the song, Ritt says: “It’s kind of about feeling like you’re disrupting a relationship or a family dynamic and you don’t know how to stop. I guess I pulled from feelings of being ‘the problem child’ when I was younger. And kind of now too.”

“Release Me”

Growing up listening to a range of genres, from psychedelic and folk to progressive rock and new wave, “Release Me” opened my eyes to the world of synths and everything electronics can provide to create a whole new universe of sound. Taking something seemingly fun and cheerful on the outside, and revealing something deeper on the inside.

ICYMI: Electra Mustaine (daughter of Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine) releases infectious new single “Evergreen”

Rising star pop singer Electra Mustaine has always been an artist that commands attention – not just from the weight of her lineage (her father is Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine), but by effusing knowledge of self by unapologetically embracing who she is. At 23 years old, Electra has begun to hone in on a unique identity as a musician, balking the expectations of those who remember her from numerous performances with her father, stints in musical theater and a country-pop rendition of Megadeth song “I Thought I Knew It All”.
