The Price of Salt, produced by Thomas Rehbein (Small Towns Burn A Little Slower, Farewell Continental, Näive Sense, Robosapien), will be released via Epitaph Records on July 9. You can listen to the first track from the EP “Firehawk,” which channels classic ‘90s influences like Fugazi, Jawbox, The Jesus & Mary Chain, and The Flaming Lips.
Argentina’s Lagartijeando is excited to announce his new single “Sideral Cumbia,” which is out now! It is the first release from his upcoming album due out in October on Wonderwheel Recordings.
The new song brings the listener to celestial levels by taking traditional Cumbia vibes deep into the outer reaches of space. “Sideral Cumbia’s” ethereal soundscape comes with minimalist drums, a bouncing bassline, echoes upon echoes of synth, staccato guitar and even some mbira before coming back to earth momentarily to a swelling horn section. A triumphant return for Lagartijeando known for pushing the boundaries of Latin Music, Folk, and Electronic music even further.
Released through Xtra Mile Recordings, it features 12 brand new compositions that exclusively feature on the score of ‘Rare Beasts’. The soundtrack also includes the former Johnny Lloyd solo single: “Next Episode Starts In 15 Seconds”, which was written around the time of filming and features prominently at the climax of the film. With all songs composed by Lloyd and Coen, additional vocal contributions come from Hazel Baillie (who also edited the film).
Massachusetts emcees Benefit (of EMS) & Kaine, the newly formed duo “The Tangiers” are currently working on their debut project “The House Always Wins.” On the first single “Wrath of the Titans” they enlist the likes of Boston veteran wordsmith M-Dot (Pete Rock & Hi-Tek collaborator), who carries double duties as both MC and producer on this gem. Adding to the cascade of fire power is that of Brooklyn battle rap legend and Griselda affiliate RJ Payne, who was recently quoted as being Eminem’s favorite rapper. The fast-paced and soulful production from M-Dot sets up the perfect backdrop for the four emcees to verbally eviscerate any opposition. Look for “The House Always Wins” on all outlets later this summer.
Endearments’ debut single, “Left Side”, is a mirror for the inner world of Brooklyn-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Marksson. Initially written to convey the dysphoria of obsessive-compulsive disorder, “it quickly became a song about the way my OCD was affecting my relationship, and making it difficult for me to see the toxic expectations that were hurting me,” says Marksson.
The resulting track unspools unanswerable questions over mighty pulses from drummer Jonathan Schmidt and Marksson’s own multi-tracked vocals, which flicker, omnipresent and cool, around the edges of the song’s atmosphere. “Left Side” ponders the limits of love and empathy, its hook—”you should know me like I do”—asking for the impossible as glimmering arps cycle between twin poles of solipsism and codependence.

Qveen Herby debut album ‘A Woman’ out now
“I need to thank you, the Qveendom, for supporting me for SO LONG,” says Qveen Herby. “Watching me grow as an artist. Teaching me & inspiring me. I love you. This album is YOURS as much as it is mine… you have made me ‘A WOMAN.’”
Chasny’s gift is in making even the mutant rock of his new record The Veiled Sea as enveloping and mysterious as the unsettling chance operations of his Hexadic period. The Veiled Sea is, in some sense, a record built around guitar solos. Not the blown-out deconstructions of his work with Comets on Fire nor the saturnine processions of The Sun Awakens; not even the haunted, lysergic summonings of his early masterpieces like Dark Noontide and Compathia. The ones here are big, open, implacably ascendant edifices crowning the album like church spires over the towns of Europe. They reminded me of the enormous, chiming solos of Katzenmusik-era Michael Rother, but Chasny insisted on a decidedly less rarefied touchstone: 80s American pop shredder Steve Stevens. He of Billy Idol’s band; he of “Dirty Diana”; yes, he of the soaring Top Gun anthem. Chasny continues to draw the improbable lines of connection.
Gregory Dillon returns with enchanting deep-house remix of ‘Screenshots’
Dancing alone, New York based Gregory Dillon reinvents the melodies from his debut EP into an enchanting follow up, his Dark Magic EP due for release July 16th. Today, he unveils his collaboration with Indian producer/DJ Frozt for a remix of Screenshots, a confident deep house mix and the first taste of this upcoming project.
“This tune was composed mostly of samples from other songs I had recorded which was a new process I was trying on with this record. I like the idea of themes and pieces folding in on themselves. In this process I have found there to be lots of happy accidents. Ideas I wouldn’t have thought of appear with the slip of my finger. It is very fun that way! The trumpet parts and parlor piano were all chopped using a sampler and then blasted into the groove. I had been fooling with the idea of chances and their meaning ever since I saw Jim Carey do his commencement address at the 2014 MUM GRADUATION. This Youtube video heavily influenced the lyrics of this song.”
