VANCE JOY ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM IN OUR OWN SWEET TIME OUT JUNE 10+ FINDS HIS “CLARITY” ON NEW SINGLE
On the title of his new album, In Our Own Sweet Time, Joy shared, “I’m always drawn to the idea of timelessness or that shared moment that takes you out of the chaos outside. If the world is crazy, you can retreat somewhere. It’s always hard to think of the right title but I think that sums up the album perfectly.”
‘Stupid Drama’ has a repetitive minimal funk thing going on, reminiscent of Use No Hooks and Pylon, but the vocals are sharp, dry and fiery, sometimes eroding into an acerbic Sleaford Mods style bored and anguished drawl. It’s a bratty, snotty, foot-stomping, sax-screeching romp through the types of absurd, mundane predicaments that sometimes grow so big they seem to generate their own gravitational fields.

London based duo Pet Deaths today announce their second album unhappy ending – out 27th May via Silver Mind Records and release new single “swingtime” alongside a stark, surrealist black and white short film. The announcement follows the band’s widely acclaimed debut album To the Top of the Hill and Roll… – released in 2019, described by Huw Stephens as “beautiful, understated and special” – noting it as one of his favourite albums of the year.
Inspired, musically, by the spiritual moments of Alice Coltrane, the freeness of Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew with a sprinkling of Talk Talk’s Spirit Of Eden in its colourful unravelling, unhappy ending is an enveloping experience, touching upon universal themes but all shone through the lens of lyricist and vocalist Liam Karima’s signature perspective.

After declaring its comeback last week and announcing the release of the new album “Spirit & Liberation” for late summer, the German Gothic Metal band CHILD OF CAESAR is releasing the first single “Seven” accompanied by a menacing music video now, which was produced in collaboration with Maria Goruleva of All4Band Design (e.g. Ignea, Diamond Head, Doomeye). The video clip perfectly matches the lyrics, which are about youth and their rebellion against a slavish moral system and the achievements of ethics and human reason. “Seven” is a song that gets stuck in your head with its anthemic haunting Gothic Metal, thrilling riffs and punching beat.

The recording and mixing of the album was done at guitarist Christopher F.

Oceanator releases sophomore LP ‘Nothing’s Ever Fine’ tomorrow, April 8th, on Polyvinyl Record Co!
“The cars break. Everything goes slow motion. There’s disaster and fire,” foretells Elise Okusami, describing her cinematic vision of the end of the world. Apocalypse is a subject she mined in acute detail and to critical acclaim on 2020’s Things I Never Said, her debut full-length as Oceanator. But in her most recent cataclysmic telling, she keeps the camera focused on the people who survive and need to keep on living. A couple escapes the wreckage in a classic pickup truck, their dog riding in the back. They find a new home in the woods and consider how to start over. “It could either be hopeful or negative,” Okusami explains of the tale’s ambiguous ending. “You’re either walking off into a nice sunset or going off into a black hole. For me, it depends on the mood; it can be both ways.”
