New Release From Blacc Zacc ‘Lookin Like’ Out Now On South Coast Music Group/Interscope Records.

In 2021, Zacc unleashed a pair of videos in “Lace Front” and “Dirty Money,” which came on the heels of Zacc’s 2020 album 803 Legend. He also opened up for MoneyBagg Yo as part of the Memphis rapper’s A Gangsta’s Pain Tour. Released in October 2020, the Carolina Narcos MC tightened his grip on the trap world with his 13-track collection. With features by Kevin Gates, 42 Dugg, Foogiano, Fat Loc, and more, 803 Legend included a flurry of highlights, ranging from “Tennis” to his bombastic tune “Knew Dat.”


The track hinges on sparse acoustic guitar punctuated by warm lo-fi production from Oliver Tree, Whethan, and Casey Mattson. Right out of the gate, he declares, “I’m a weirdo, I’m a freak, no matter who I try to be…I change my life. I change my ways. I always wanted better days.” His vulnerable vocals resound on the chantable refrain as he ultimately serves up an empowering anthem for outcasts everywhere.


Deem’s Tape is an album born out of a deep reflection process. In this album, Deem examines his internal thoughts and feelings around a concept piece he called “my wife and kids,” where he begins to conceptualize the future he wants for himself. The slow melancholic production by Big Flowers, Coach Wave and Frank Leone guide Deem’s subconscious thoughts as he meditates on his upbringing, romantic life and the abundance of his life.

Spaghetti & Frank revisits “My Sharona” with The Knack and Nashville Pussy

But the big surprise came when they scored the double-coup of getting The Knack’s original lead guitarist Berton Averre to reprise his classic lead guitar solo on the studio version of the song, and then nabbing Nashville Pussy guitarist Ruyter Suys to recreate it in the music video!


Nardo Wick is the rapper up next; he’s your favorite rapper’s rapper – getting nods and co-signs from major artists within the rap space – while continuing to hone in on his unique dark, energetic sound that is unforgettable.

Jeff Lake Releases a New Single, Today From His Debut EP, Field of Grass

Written & recorded in his home studio during last year’s covid “lock-down”, it’s only fitting this song would be released in winter number two of the pandemic. Featuring only acoustic guitar & vocal, the song’s melancholy is in stark contrast to the uptempo jubilation of Lake’s previous release, “Better Times Will Come”, while its simplicity features Lake’s smooth, unaffected tenor.

INCITE: Arizona Metal Unit Presents “Deadbeat” Video

On their five albums The Slaughter (2009), All Out War (2012), Up In Hell (2014), Oppression (2016), and Built To Destroy (2019), INCITE cemented their reputation as one of America’s leading groove armadas, heavily hitting home with their blend of old-school thrash majesty, frantic aggression, melody, skill, and bravado. What began as a band of greenhorns driving around the States in a shitty van, thrashing small clubs, has evolved into a band with the potential, the passion, and the power to become one of metal’s biggest acts.

PLANEPACKED Premiere “War Song” at V13

“War Song” is the dynamic double single from metaltronica project, PLANEPACKED. Officially releasing on the 28th of January 2022 with a B-side instrumental version, the track is now available to stream exclusively at V13.

PLANEPACKED mastermind Jessica Kagen comments:

“‘War Song’ was written as I learned how to sing, early in the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s an ode to trans joy and pride, and the LGBTQ+ community’s long struggle against prejudice. This single is also a proving ground for musical ideas I plan to explore in future Planepacked albums.”

ICYMI — Marion Raw has a new single out! Have you had a listen?

“Unfuckable” is the first bit of new music Marion Raw has shared since the release of her 2021 album Deep Cuts. It serves as another example of her songwriting that is at times heartbreakingly familiar, rollicking throwbacks of dreamy rock & roll with a touch of garage folk, and that somehow channel the spirit animals of a heartbroken “Jolene” (Dolly Parton) driving across Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska, on some obscure b-side bootleg audio cassette. Marion consistently manages to cram a lifetime of musical yearning into her songs.


New ‘Ella Baker Shaker’ Video feat. Big Freedia Here to Mark Black History Month!

“The Black Joy Experience Vol. 2: Comrade” is a rousing, uplifting sonic journey that, according to Lykes “carries on the aim for social justice that our ancestors started.” Case in point, the lead single and video, “Ella Baker Shaker,” is a high-energy tribute to the 1960s civil rights activist and features the Queen of New Orleans Bounce herself, Big Freedia.

This week we announced a new single and video from Bitch! Her new album Bitchcraft is out tomorrow on Kill Rock Stars! Bitch has released this new electrifying video “Nothing In My Pockets” from the new album. An early version of the song was crafted with Melissa York (Team Dresch, The Butchies) years ago and was later reworked for the album. “It’s about an emptiness after a breakup. Almost like withdrawal from a drug,” explains Bitch. “When you just feel numb, like nothing is real. Like there is NOTHING.”
