Syd Carter West Unveils New Music Video for “Venom Hurts”

Vancouver-based Southern rock artist Syd Carter West has just released her newest track and accompanying video, “Venom Hurts.” The song utilizes classic roadhouse blues tunes and the raw passionate vocals of Syd Carter West. The track focuses on the emotional turmoil Syd Carter West goes through and how it symbolizes forgiveness of one’s self.

“Mental health doesn’t have to define who we are but rather the obstacles we can face and come back stronger and wiser.” – Syd Carter West

Amy Jay premieres new video on the heels of first LP

Following the February release of her first full-length album Awake Sleeper, indie-folk artist Amy Jay unveils the video, “Lucid Dreaming.” The album was profoundly influenced by life in New York C
ity, and Jay found the inspiration for this song during a particularly strange morning commute when, through a half-asleep haze, she faintly picked up the smells of sunscreen and cigarettes.

APEIRON BOUND To Release Multiplicity

Prog metal band APEIRON BOUND will release their new album Multiplicity via Layered Reality Productions on August 26th, 2022. The first single “Emotive Servitude” will be released on March 25th, 2022.


Following up on the bold statement made by their 2018 debut album, the band founded by late Motörhead guitarist Würzel, Leader Of Down, returns with a killer new single “Hitman.” The song features the band’s trademark driving rhythms and gritty distorted guitars, including a brilliant contribution from one of Iron Maiden’s first guitarist, Dennis Stratton, who shines on a late-song solo that gives the song a fantastic finale. Lyrically, “Hitman” takes the listener deep into the mind of the song’s central character, a charismatic if mentally unbalanced murderer for hire. All together, “Hitman” hits its mark with professional precision!

TODAY: Toronto’s alt pop artist Jenny Palacios shares emotive single/video “Grateful” reflecting on depression

Jenny’s somber new single, “Grateful,” explores the guilt she felt when she was surrounded by abundance but still felt a lack. “I wanted to elicit a sense of slow dreading numbness, because it can be really visceral hitting these low periods. It’s like everything is a little blurry, faded, and far away. Everything’s confusing but nothing’s urgent. No beginning or end.”


Montreal’s queer bilingual pop icon Maryze announces her much-anticipated debut LP, 8, and shares a stormy-sweet pop R&B single “Experiments” on March 3rd. If Caroline Polacheck and Charli XCX collaborated to make a 2000s club banger, you’d get pretty close to “Experiments”… but not quite. A dark and sexy Y2K club banger produced by Jeshway, “Experiments” is inspired by Timbaland beats and ominous but fun tracks like Nelly Furtado’s Maneater. Combining R&B beats with a wash of dreamy harmonies, infectious dark pop hooks, smooth vocal runs, and layers upon layers of synths, “Experiments” dives head first into the awe-inspiring sonic universe that is Maryze.

Para acompañar el lanzamiento de “KRACK Deluxe”, Lenny presenta “Que Vamo’ Hacer” con una artista de talla mundial como lo es Anitta. El tema se puede definir como un reggaetón melodioso, casi romántico, con un poderoso “beat” que invita a mover las caderas, producido por el mismísimo Ovy on the Drums, quien tuvo la idea de juntar a ambos artistas en esta canción.
