Blu Ernest takes shots on intoxicating R&B joint ‘Dodged A Bullet’
Following the success of ‘The Chill’, the Brighton-based newcomer takes aim in ’22 with an intoxicating debut release from his forthcoming ‘____ On My Mind’ project. Entirely self-produced, ‘Dodged A Bullet’ is a fist-swinging frenzy of gritty 808’s and R&B knocks, soaked in the melancholy of Blu’s sultry harmonies and vocal runs. It’s about stumbling upon your ex at your local bar, and the bittersweet feelings that ensue.
Well it’s that time of the week again, Canadian Punk Legends Dayglo Abortions release their next single – “Raised On Chest Milk” from their upcoming album “Hate Speech” and premiere via The Spill Magazine.
GRAMMA VEDETTA has released their new album The Hum Of The Machine in its entirety, as an 8Bit version. Available on their Bandcamp, this is a nice surprise for their fans as they await the release of the full album.
VANIR release video/single “Dødsfærd”
“Dødsfærd” (deaths journey) is the first single and video on the forthcoming 6th album by Viking melodic death metal band VANIR. The song takes its inspiration from the Words of Hávi (the High One) as a reminder that all our actions echo in death for our legacies to be judged by. Cattle die, Kinsmen die, even you must die, I know one thing that never dies: the judgment of each death.
Connecticut rockers TURKEY VULTURE have released a video for their song “She’s Married (But Not to Me”) via Ghost Cult Magazine. The song is from their EP Twist the Knife which is out on January 14th.
Drummer Jim Clegg comments:
“When it came time to make a new music video, the plan was to hopefully film it at a bar. Luckily, Jess and I are members of one and that worked out. Darin Guerrasio is a childhood friend, a groomsman in our wedding, actor (Wall Street 2, Daredevil) and director (Wake, Apocalypse Live). We made movies growing up and got into some festivals in the early 2000s, and it’s been since then since we’ve creatively worked together. It was great fun working with him again, and we look forward to hopefully collaborate on some new projects in the future.”

Aschenvater – Release Lyric Video For “Sturmreif // Der Verräterkönig”
The band name “Aschenvater” is inspired by the universe of Warhammer 40K, which also serves as content for our first EP named Landungsfeldmassaker. It is about a battle on Istvaan V, the drop site massacre (Landungsfeldmassaker). The sound is raw and destructive, like the rotting battlefields.
Paula Jivén Releases New Single ‘Say That’ via Universal Music Sweden
Swedish singer/songwriter Paula Jivén makes spellbindingly original pop music, each song sparked from her radiant imagination. At just 18-years-old, she’s already cultivated a truly singular voice as an artist, one that defies all expectation in favor of following her most playful and daring instincts. Newly signed to Universal Music Sweden, Jivén is now set to deliver a debut EP titled ‘The Duality In Me’ this summer, revealing her supreme gifts as a storyteller and the tremendous power of her captivating voice. Arriving ahead of the EP release is the stand-out single ‘Say That’, a hypnotic chill-pop offering that served as a cathartic song-writing experience for Jivén. On creating the track, Jivén shares:
Brighton’s PUBLIC BODY fuse noughties indie and modern post-punk on energetic new single “Reset My Password” following supports w/ Squid, Dry Cleaning
Recorded at Echo Zoo studios, produced by the band’s guitarist Theo Verney – known for his production work for FEET, English Teacher, FUR and Home Counties (and engineered by Christoph Skirl), “Reset My Password” bursts into focus amidst rolling percussion, searing guitars and fizzing synths, with singer Seb Gilmore’s affirming his appreciation for his own employment status, whilst being distinctly aware of the trivial nature of ‘adhering to company policy’. A cacophonous blast of agitated indie-punk, “Reset My Password” fuses the energy of naughties indie with the ferocity of modern post-punk to irresistible effect.
