Today, Vapors of Morphine have shared the saxophone-laced, spellbinding “Irene,” the first single to be released from their upcoming album, Fear & Fantasy, which is due September 24th on Schnitzel Records. Vapors of Morphine performs the music of “low rock” pioneers Morphine, utilizing the ethereal, hypnotic and expansive sounds popularized by the group in the nineties. Speaking on the origins of “Irene,” the band’s Jeremy Lyons noted “Although it’s performed with a basic Morphine-style arrangement – slide-bass, sax, drums and vocals – to me, this song is reminiscent of late 50’s/early 60’s pop music. It’s like bubble gum pop grew up, developed a drinking problem, got left at the altar, and went to bed.”

“When I wrote ‘Shimmer’, I was in the process of really learning how to be happy as I was entering a new stage of life.

Gabriele Poso Announces New Album “Tamburo Infinito” Out October 1st on Wonderwheel Recordings
Recorded in Lecce in the south of Italy and almost entirely on his own (unlike previous productions), the undisputed star of the show is once again the drum and the percussion, the Tamburo Infinito (translates to Infinate Drum). Although born in Italy, Gabriele has always looked across the Atlantic for inspirations and rhythms, and this album is no different. This time his sonic adventures took him to the French West Indies and the French Caribbean island like Guadeloupe Martinique, “I’m in love with everything about the sound of their drums, it’s very unique warm and deep sound.”
“The song bounces from one imagined perspective to another as an examination of the hidden internal lives of people that are attending a gathering,” Vocalist Ben Liebsch (pronouns, He/They, Ben is non-binary) tells Under The Radar. “My own perspective on intractable loneliness blends with imagery constructed from overheard conversations, hushed concerns about a friend in addiction, and a life made repetitively solitary due to being labelled as other by this world. It really epitomizes a perspective as trans-rational as the band name itself.”
Thrashers TURN COLD have released their new song “Delusion Solution”. The track is from their EP Break Your Faith which is out on September 10th.
