For Skope: Pushing Daizies encourage to live in the present with “I Want To Know.” Out now on Dim Mak

“‘I Want To Know’ is a song that should get you up to dance like no one is watching. Just living in the moment. It’s a song that makes us smile & shows us how truly blessed we are in this world.” – Pushing Daizies

OS “Free Roam Syndrome” EP (w/ new song “Zero Sum”) just released!

Occult Stereo has always been about free collaboration, but the new two-song EP is actually ‘solo’ (i.e. all instruments played by me, Alex).

The album was engineered, mixed, and mastered during a massive upheaval & transatlantic relocation. It captures a vibe and tension of uncertainty, while embracing forward momentum and rebirth.

Azealia Banks / Paul Oakenfold / Benny Benassi – “Hypnotic”

TERMINALIST: The Great Acceleration Debut LP From Danish Thrash Metal Act Out Today Via Indisciplinarian

The world is ruled by speed. Speed which drives history forward in a state of ever-increasing acceleration. Such is the central claim of dromology; a theory of speed originated by French philosopher Paul Virilio (1932-2018). It is on this premise that TERMINALIST bases their conceptual universe. On The Great Acceleration, they bring the dromocratic philosophy together with their own science fiction narratives as they describe a world in crisis and a planet in collapse being abandoned in favor of colonization of space.

NJ’s Buzziest Surf Rock Band DENTIST Release New Single

When last we caught up with NJ trio Dentist, they had just released a brand new single “Don’t Let Me Catch You,” along with a hilariously twisted video that fans of the band’s dark humor found comfortingly familiar. Now the band has prepped the release of another new single that takes its emotional content a little more seriously and straight-faced. “Let Me Let Go,” is a reverb drenched tune that kicks in with bouncy indie pop and explodes into fuzzed out garage rock by the first chorus. The video, directed by Mat Hale of Image 8 Nineteen brings the lyrics and energy of the track to life in a surreal world of anxiety and uncertainty.


The song, built around smooth keys, slick bass, and Dev’s buttery crooning, is a West Coast delight that’s echoed by the slick visuals. Dev and his crew pal around outside a gas station, two-stepping and busting moves in preparation for the lively summer ahead. Dev’s charisma and charm in the visual call back to the greatest California MCs, who built long careers out of rapping well and having a good time.
