LATHE: The Sleeping Shaman Premieres “Journey To The East” From Instrumental Americana Doom Trio; Tongue Of Silver Nears Release Via Grimoire Records/APT 66
LATHE’s sound can be found somewhere between sand and rust, where sparkling leads and pedal steel are met with blistering riffs and a pummeling rhythm section. Tongue Of Silver is a collection of songs that began as a studio project in 2018. After countless revisions and setbacks, a pile of demos were brought to producer and Grimoire Records owner Noel Mueller for a proper studio assessment throughout 2021.

They’re Getting “Mad,” Trapland Pat is Getting Rich
With his radiant intensity and his dexterous flows, Trapland Pat is a force of fun in South Florida trap. Determined to elevate to a worldwide audience, Pat shares the new video for “Mad,” a highlight track from his recent project, Trapnificent. The Dizzy You Violated-produced track finds Pat skating over slick Latin-flavored guitar licks and pitter pattering hi-hats as he paves the way for a bright future while staying true to his humble roots: “Hundred bands cash, I can tell you never seen that/And I don’t talk money cause my people ain’t rich yet/My people stuck in Haiti, I can’t even much fix that.” Directed by WesHype2.0, the video for “Mad” finds Pat cool as a cucumber at a kickback, toting burner-shaped liquor bottles, reclining on a couch surrounded by baddies, and even using a D’usse bottle as a microphone, which he previewed in a clip on Instagram last week.
Music Video – Judy Whitmore “It Could Happen To You”
The follow-up to her highly lauded 2020 debut album Can’t We Be Friends, “It Could Happen To You” marks a new era musically for Whitmore with a bold departure from the more traditional arrangements of its predecessors, unfolding in a more free-flowing sound imbued with the improvisational spirit and exploratory musicianship of jazz – a feat she achieves with both dazzling ingenuity and extraordinary grace. Produced by John Sawoski (a composer, orchestrator, and musical director who also helmed the production of Can’t We Be Friends,) the track came to life at the legendary Capitol Studios in Los Angeles (where her story began as a singer in college) in a series of sessions with Grammy® Award-nominated recording engineer Steve Genewick (Barbra Streisand, Burt Bacharach). With more music on the way, Whitmore stays true to her exquisite gift as a song interpreter, brightening each track with her warmly nuanced vocal style and radiant personality.
