After listening to Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “Twin of Myself,” Homeboy Sandman was inspired to make Apple. He explains, “It was so beautiful and it had such a beautiful pocket it took top priority in my consciousness immediately.” Homeboy Sandman’s appreciation for the song prompted him to write the lyrics in under an hour before sending it to be mixed and mastered by Darko The Super. The title comes from the final lines of the song, “Nothing left for me to tackle, but trying to regurgitate the tree of knowledge apple.” Like all of his music, Apple is about Homeboy Sandman trying to rid himself of all the nonsense that has been put into his head, making him afraid and separating him from God. The artwork for Apple was done by artist and pop-culture aficionado, Gangster Doodles.

“AOIFE NESSA FRANCES – Signs to Partisan + Drops “Emptiness Follows” Single
Partisan Records have signed Irish artist Aoife Nessa Frances, who today has released a new single entitled “Emptiness Follows” with accompanying video. The track is a mesmerizing, pastoral piece of psych-folk, the playfulness of Aoife’s instrumentation juxtaposed by her beguiling voice as she meditates on the pain of friendships drifting apart (“the weight of the water / it holds you and tortures time away from you”). It’s also the first taste of the follow up to her much loved 2020 debut ‘Land of No Junction’, with further details to come later on that.
Bo Milli releases new video “At The Wheel”, MADE Management (Sigrid) co-produced by Odd Martin (AURORA, Sløtface)
With a predisposition to self-criticise and a talent for turning that into art, Bo Milli is an essential new voice in music. Through her diaristic lyrics, the super smart environmentalist writes hook after hook as she navigates her inner conflict. And indeed, in putting her own life into words, she has unknowingly narrated our collective existential angst. “Writing music is an emotional outlet, but it’s also a puzzle,” she says, reflecting on her craft. “Sentences come to me and I try to make the pieces fit together. And if just for a moment my music is a good thing in someone’s life, then I will take any opportunity to play it.”
