ISAIAH RASHAD DROPS MESMERIZING VIDEO FOR “HEADSHOTS (4R DA LOCALS)”
Fresh off releasing his hypnotic new single, “Headshots (4r Da Locals),” Isaiah Rashad returns with a fittingly mesmerizing video for the cut. The visual finds Rashad in a solemn support group, Agony Anonymous, before switching between clips of the rapper at a bar, in the back of a car drinking with friends, and wandering aimlessly through the desert before falling into an open pit—a moving depiction of a descent into life’s darkness. With unpredictable imagery and moments of profound stillness, the video for “Headshots (4r Da Locals)” mirrors the rich symbolism for the introspective new song, the latest from his forthcoming, long-awaited new album The House Is Burning. With plenty of thoughts to unfurl, flows to unload, and stories to tell, Isaiah Rashad is set to make his return a triumphant one.
Today, Australian electro-folk singer, songwriter and producer Hayden Calnin shares his anthemic new single, “Politicians,” where his brooding lyrics pulse over sparse atmospheric textures that force the listener to slow down and question the political world around them. Hayden explains, “As the title suggests, this is a song about the leaders of the world; a note of reflection on it and a f**ck you, if you will. The state of politics in the western world, the one I know, feels more like a sporting competition than a representation of the people. I’m not sure if this has always been the case or if I’m just noticing it more now that I’m a little older but one thing I do know is that I’m not alone in feeling frustrated and angry about it. No matter your political views, there is global frustration and it feels like people are taking more action into their own hands than ever before. We are communicating, we are standing together and we have quite frankly had enough of the sh*t-storm that floods most government bodies around the world.”

Leeroy Stagger Releases New Single + Video VENTURA (A Song For Neal Casal)
“The song ‘Ventura’ is about my friend Neal Casal,” says Leeroy. “The first time I met Neal was on a magical night in New York City, he was working on Willie Nelson’s Songbird record as he was in Ryan Adams’ band The Cardinals at the time. He invited us out to the 17th St. bar where all the Cardinals were hanging out, he introduced me to the band and they all had laughed how they were happy that Ryan wasn’t there because they didn’t want me to have a bad impression of him. – Photo Credit: Piper Ferguson
The new single is written by Kirstie Kraus, Arkfoo, and Mark Addison Chandler.

Out Now: Rest For The Wicked Search For The Light At The End Of The Tunnel In “Bones” Video (EMI Music Australia / Universal)
Introducing Rest For The Wicked—the brand new collaborative project from Ben Townsend (aka Ivan Ooze) and experimental producer Tasker. Marrying the raw indie energy of Glass Animals and MGMT, the fluidity of Still Woozy, and an elusive rebel edge to create something completely their own, the Aussie duo have officially arrived. Released via EMI Music Australia / Universal, their debut offering “Bones” and the new video for the single is out now.
Inspired by growing up around desert creatures in a western town, experiencing the sinister lawless side of desert life, and the characters she’s met along the way, the modern goth-western vignettes she conjures up are of ghost towns, dark rodeos, the haunted desert, abandoned motel rooms, skylines on fire, the open road and reckless tales of love and loss in a modern wild west.
