Ken Yates announces LP & shares single “The Big One” featuring Kathleen Edwards, along with video
The minimalist pop song is a poignant piece of commentary on heartbreak in the digital age. Her voice is soft yet fragile as she tries to absorb the truth of her own words. “There’s no pretty way to break a heart,” she intones in a half whisper over an ominous drone. A delicate beat then kicks up underneath, urging her to share more. “Breaking up is modern art,” she declares, before orchestral strings sweep in as if soundtracking the credits to another sad ending.
Moderat share “EASY PREY” video ahead of MORE D4TA album
Moderat, the trio of Sascha Ring (of Apparat) and Gernot Bronsert & Sebastian Szary (of Modeselektor), have just shared “EASY PREY,” the second single from their upcoming fourth album MORE D4TA (scheduled for release on May 13). Possibly the most emotionally naked track on the album, the glowing electronic pop of “EASY PREY” showcases Moderat at their best, conveying innermost feelings with grand melodic gestures. Flanked by warm pads and fluttering synths, vocalist Sascha Ring leads the track’s moonlit ascent, his melancholic voice wafting through crystalline textures.

BRYAN ADAMS RELEASES NEW ALBUM “SO HAPPY IT HURTS”
Speaking of the album, Bryan states, “When I realised that we might never tour again due to the pandemic, I dug out all the receipts and drink coasters out of my coat pockets that I’d scribbled song ideas on, assembled them on my laptop and wrote an album.” He adds further on “Always Have, Always Will,” “It’s a declaration of devotion, pure and simple. Someone that has been with you and is still with you despite your ups and downs; someone that can see through your ego and layers of complexity and just sees you for you. Someone you appreciate, someone you respect, someone you trust.”
Tōth Shares New Video For “I Might Be”
Appeal to Authority Premieres “Black Aura” at Metal Injection Today!
Larry Schroeder, Vocals/Guitars/Keys, details the concept of “Black Aura”: “When it came time to write and record the lyrics for this, over eight minutes of music we had constructed, I chose a subject matter that I was dealing with personally and that had a great effect on me. A close-to-home murder left me feeling many different and uncharted emotions in which family members, neighbors, and the community found themselves shockingly trying to make sense of it all. “Black Aura” helped me process and deal with all of this and is a representation of the events that took place. A portrayal of pure unnecessary evil and darkness that this world endures. Teaming up once again with Thomas Crane of Kill Devil Films (Saliva, Todd La Torre) brought out the imagery that matches and fits the narrative.”

The Coffis Brothers New Album ‘Turn My Radio Up’ Out 4/29
“It’s all-American music,” says The Coffis Brothers’ co-frontman, Kellen Coffis. “There’s rock, blues, acoustic folk, and country in there. As music fans, we go all the way back to the beginning — to pioneers like Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers — but we also look to artists like the Eagles and Tom Petty for influence. That’s our playbook.”
“Veo, Veo” es una canción irreverente, desafiante, rebelde y sin tapujos, tal y como lo es su intérprete Villano Antillano. La artista, quien se identifica como transfemme, es la verdadera dueña del “flow” y del chanteo. Sus canciones van más allá del Trap y del género urbano, son líricas reveladoras que cuentan la belleza y también el horror de crecer como una persona Queer en El Caribe.

The nine songs were all written in the emotional ricochet of recent, pandemic life, then recorded with the absolute purity of one man with a guitar and a microphone.
