ABRAHAM: MetalSucks Premieres Débris de Mondes Perdus In Its Entirety

An album that is as rough, ugly, and brute as it gets, ABRAHAM has taken conscious distance to the polished, metallic side of post metal, in favor of a more rock-oriented, gritty, and less produced sound. However, these are not glorious singalong rock anthems, but utterly raw, dissonant, abrasive, and clinking cold compositions, in the most refreshing and invigorating sense of these words.

Exclusive Album Stream: Abraham Paint a Lumbering, Pitiless Landscape on Débris de Mondes Perdus


Director and editor Frances Carter, on the song and video, says “I got really attached to this track during the August lockdown — cooped up at home and trying to pretend everything was fine. Every time ‘Bottle It In’ came on the radio I’d crank it up and have this cathartic experience. It has such a tense, ominous energy that builds up and explodes into something completely unhinged at the end. It reminded me of one of my favourite disturbed anthems, Gaskrankinstation by Headless Chickens, and I wanted the video to have the same mix of darkness and comedy.

Today Jeanines are announcing their sophomore LP, Don’t Wait For A Sign, and share the lead single/video titled “Any Day Now.” Check out the premiere on BrooklynVegan here. BV gave some praise to the track, stating “The wistful ‘Any Day Now’ is a perfect example of what Jeanines do so well, a song lifted by Alicia’s ethereal harmonies and its ‘la la la’ chorus. It clocks in well under two minutes long but will be stuck in your head after the first listen.” Jeanines’ Don’t Wait For A Sign is due April 22nd, 2022 via Slumberland Records.

Yony share “The Only Naked Guy at the Party”

Cionni continues: “This song was the reason we got the Sub 37. We knew it needed that fat pulse. Moog was the only way. Once that was in, everything else came together. This song and “Waves of Exhaustion” gave the acoustic a real home on this record. The real magic, though, happened in Sweden with Norbert. He added extra pads, those distorted guitars at the end, and even more to make it really pop. Thematically, this song is about vulnerability. People have a tendency to avoid hard conversations in order to keep things positive. I’ve been told I’m too sensitive, too intense, and that always bums me out. The last thing a person in distress should do is keep it inside. If you don’t let it out, your emotions will play out in much uglier ways.”

Latinx Pop Artist ericdoa Shares New Single “fool4love” + Announce North American Tour

Of making the track eric shares “’fool4love’ was probably my favorite experience making a song I’ve had, it was all of my close friends on the floor of my bedroom hearing me annoyingly hum a guitar melody into the amazing fortuneswan’s ear until 6 AM rolled around and the finished product was what your hearing now. A classic tale of my awkward stages of figuring out what being committed to a human being is all about.”

I can feel the anxious emotions and still make the choice: I Will Not Fear.”

After much anticipation, Belgian psych-rockers Hugs of the Sky share their fourth studio album, Tangerine Boredom Delusion via Joyzine. Leading listeners by the hand through a psychedelic soundscape of heavy guitar distortion, gravely vocals, and high-energy drums, Tangerine Boredom Delusion pushes Hugs of the Sky’s sonic boundaries into completely new directions while still maintianing their signature DIY integrity. This record is the first time Hugs of the Sky have worked with an external mastering engineer: Joe Carra. Carra mastered albums for Australian psychrockers Pond and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and was even nominated for a Grammy in 2019 in the category “Best Engineered Album.” The songs were written during the lockdown of 2020. They have the typical Hugs of the Sky ingredients: fuzzy guitars, a sparkly bass and tight, punky drum-fills. Combined with the existential yet unworldly lyrics, it is an album for fans of the niche and weird.

Ace Hood “Free”

Today, Ace Hood dropped his new single “Free” from his upcoming M.I.N.D. EP, which releases Feb. 25th via Hood Nation/EMPIRE. Backed by a low-BPM beat full of snares and dancing synths reminiscent of a somber ’80s synth-pop track, Hood is able to harmonize on hooks and lay down wordplay like never before. Motionless on an examination table, Ace delves into his own mind and taps into the traumatic experiences that are too familiar in society today; from police brutality and blue-collar racism to domestic abuse. As Ace says plainly, “My goal is to heal the preexisting,” he’s on a mission that sidesteps fame and fortune, a mission to ultimately heal and free his people from the deep traumas they experienced.
