Provocative New Song about Mass-Shootings
This past weekend of gun carnage at Geneva Presbyterian Church in Laguna Woods, California, a Houston, Texas flea market and at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York is yet another wake-up call to the gun madness that has overtaken this country.
The song I wrote you about earlier and below is an effort to help stimulate action on this tragic situation, so I am sending you this reminder with the hope that you will publicize its availability. This effort is not about making money on a song: Any proceeds that may result will be donated to organizations working to end gun violence. — Doug Moss

Scott Nolan Collaborates with Glenn Buhr on New Track “Annabella Street”
Nolan’s new track with Glenn Buhr entitled “Annabella Street” is about the Point Douglas neighborhood in Winnipeg’s North End, which was an infamous red light district in the early 1900’s. While researching some of Winnipeg’s history, Nolan learned how early Chief of Police John Mcrae was tasked with dealing with a growing problem with prostitution. Mcrae sought out one of the most well-known wet madams of the era and told her if she could contain it to the neighbourhood there would be no interference with the police. They had a list of rules, one of which was that the women must not play the house piano too loudly.

KING SATAN • Industrial Metal • Lyric Video “Left Hand Path Symphony”
Band’s vocalist King Aleister Satan comments:
“With ‘Left Hand Path Symphony’, it feels like closing the circle we started already with our first singles and music videos years ago.
And our new ‘Occult Spiritual Anarchy’ album is indeed the end of a trilogy we started already with our 2017 debut. The song itself is a microcosm of the whole album as well, where the in-your-face bashing, danceable parts and symphonic elements blend into one chaotic symphony.
Together with this lyric video it includes parts from all of our albums and music videos through the years. Clowning is serious business or better yet, as quoted in the song from the Charles Baudelaire:
‘The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn’t exist.’
Lucy Lucy returns with sweet new single ‘Apple Tree’
Hot off an appearance at THIS THAT with What So Not and her Like a Version performance with Slumberjack earlier this year, Lucy Lucy serves up yet another juicy pop track. Silky vocals wind effortlessly through softly bouncing beat and jangly guitar rhythms, making ‘Apple Tree’ a syrupy and refreshing alt-pop joy. Peel back the deliciously sweet exterior of this melodic bop and listeners will discover a sincere and hopeful anthem for hopeless romantics. ‘Apple Tree’ was written after Lucy got swept up after meeting someone new, only to realise the relationship wasn’t going anywhere. “I had to leave to do some shows pretty soon after meeting them so felt a bit ‘out of sight out of mind’ and really bummed at the thought of not being around to keep the momentum up and it eventually fizzling out. I’m a bit of a hopeless romantic so sometimes (all the time) I can get ahead of myself,” explains Lucy Lucy.
