Top metal band Fallen Stars release their explosive new album “Execution” and stream in its entirety via INSANE BLOG.
Fallen Stars adds – “Execution is an experience front to back and each song tells a different chapter of the same story that is Fallen Stars.”
NBA Youngboy was running super late to his session a couple months ago. He originally booked 12 AM – 8AM but didn’t arrive until 4AM. Miles knew he set up the best equipment for his new label client but no one was there so he took advantage of the time and recorded this song. The song is also recorded on the Sony c800 which is the best microphone to ever be created in history. They’re about 20,000 a piece or more.
NY’s entrepreneur, producer, emcee, and graphic designer, Hanzo Bladez, is a Hip Hop purist. From the early days of Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap to the modern sounds of Griselda and Roc Marciano, he is always in tune with anything related to the culture. Since the summer of 2019, he has joined forces with his newfound brothers – Mo Rukuz, Enels, Frank White, and Lace Fueg (GRIMEWAV). Known for his obscure sample flips and hard knocking drums, Hanzo Bladez is always searching to find that new Underground sound with a touch of the Golden Era!

Eva No Showcases Her Captivating Style With Catchy & Uplifting Pop Single “100%”
The Swedish artist Eva No is making waves around the world with her single “100%”. In September 2020, she released her highly-acclaimed debut EP “History of Now,” with the five tracks “History of Now”, “The Shore”, “Things & Lies”, “Alive”, and “Trouble in Paradise”.
“100%” is a playful and infectious pop song with a modern sound that will captivate any listener. The emotion-drenched vocals and atmospheric instrumentation seamlessly work together for a must-listen record.
Melbourne-based alt metal / stoner / prog power-trio Canyon have just released a new music video for “Static”, the title track of their new EP. The video for “Static”, which has just been premiered by NextMosh, is a chilling and mysterious piece of 3D animation created by Small Robot Studio.
Both the song and the video recall the work of luminaries such as Tool, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains. The dark and mind-bending video perfectly complements the poignant and visceral progressive alt metal of the song itself.
Canyon commented: “We are proud to be able to release the final part of our EP Static. Small Robot Studio have done a beautiful job of interpreting the music we wrote and the album art that Nate Hill made. The constant haze of technological noise that surrounds all of us and is always seeking to suck us in. We hope you enjoy all the music and all the art!”
NLE CHOPPA RELEASES EMOTIONAL “LETTER TO MY DAUGHTER”
Just in time for Father’s Day, Memphis rap star NLE Choppa releases an emotional, introspective ode to his baby, “Letter to My Daughter.” The track, out now via No Love Entertainment/Warner Records, finds Choppa tapping into his reflective side to outline the ways in which his child has changed his life for the better.
WaxWorm, the industrial project of Duncan Evans (Formerly A Forest of Stars) and Arthur Brown (Based in Australia) have released their song “Klexos” via NextMosh. The track is taken from their upcoming release Mea Kulpa which will be out on July 23 2021 via Trepanation Recordings.
‘Klexos’ is a word invented by John Koenig which means ‘the art of dwelling on the past’. The mood of the track — sombre, reflective, melancholy — seemed to fit with that theme. I like the hypnotic and minimalistic melody, which was originally composed as an ambient loop by Arthur, before we fleshed it out with dark and rhythmic electronic textures, and a doom-laden drum groove. I hope the music is evocative and somehow tells an emotional story without needing lyrics. We’re really pleased that NextMosh have premiered ‘Klexos’, and we hope you like it as much as we enjoyed creating it!
Produced by powerhouse producer Rymez (Bugzy Malone, Headie One, Stefflon Don, Kamille), the instantly percussive synths brush up against a thick, bass-filled beat as shimmers of ad-libs set the anticipation of the record. Yxng Bane confidently manoeuvres through melodic, rhythmic bars as he delivers his signature sound, before Stefflon Don pulls up with a soulful, seductive verse delivered in a blend of English and Jamaican patois for her blessing on the track. Meanwhile the record builds through the verses in to a magnetic, timeless hook that is set to become a Birthday anthem for years to come.
TIMECHILD release video/single “This Too Will Pass”
“This Too Will Pass” is the second video and single from the new Danish heavy rock band TIMECHILD and is now available on YouTube and digital platforms. The song gives the listener an insight into the heavier and more riff-based part of the band’s characteristic Scandinavian sound. The song is written and recorded during a pandemic that paralyzed the global society and the lyrical universe, therefore, revolves around the fleeting nature of the human condition.
Six-piece Lakes share brand new single ‘Matches’
Watford based six-piece ensemble Lakes today share second single ‘Matches’ from their forthcoming new record ‘Start Again’. The band recently announced their signing to Big Scary Monsters for the new album, out 30th July.
Have you seen the beautiful new Tom Rosenthal video?
‘I Went To Bed And I Loved You’ is taken from Tom’s forthcoming new album Denis Was A Bird, out via Tinpot Records/Universal Music on August 20th.
It’s a very touching record written as a reflection on the recent death of his father. While there are solemn moments like lead single ‘Now You Know’, there’s also great uplifting songs celebrating the joys and happiness of life such as ‘I Went To Bed And I Loved You’.
With Fourth of July celebrations able to proceed this year due to the fact that 45% of the population is vaccinated and states have largely reopened, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2021’s Most Patriotic States in America, as well as accompanying videos and expert commentary.
To determine where Americans have the most red, white and blue pride, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 13 key indicators of patriotism. Our data set ranges from the state’s military enlistees and veterans to the share of adults who voted in the 2020 presidential election to AmeriCorps volunteers per capita. Below are some additional highlights from the report.
