JERSEY CLUB X DRILL PIONEER BANDMANRILL DROPS INTENSE NEW TRACK “REAL HIPS”
“It’s a massive honor to have my song The Emperor chosen as the anthem for ESPN’s college football season. I wrote this song when I was seventeen, it was just an outburst of unfiltered energy that I knew would have its moment one day. I played it live for years but never found the right time to release it until now. College football is such a massive part of American culture and all I ever want to do is bring energy to people, so I can’t wait for the song to bring that energy to the fans and the players at the games all season.” – YUNGBLUD

The Happy Fits share new single “Around And Around” ahead of third LP out Aug 26
“Around And Around” is the forthcoming album’s opening track, one that sets the tone and speaks to how life, in the midst of a pandemic and beyond, can often feel like an endless loop–mirrored by the track’s magnetic circular guitar riff written by guitarist Ross Monteith years prior. Explaining how the track came to be, lead vocalist and cellist Calvin Langman says, “It works two-fold to me; during the dog days of the pandemic, it felt like the world was just going around and around and nothing changed. Yet, there’d come months or weeks when it felt like the world was changing so rapidly and violently that I couldn’t keep up.”

Primus releases official video for “Follow The Fool,” vinyl edition of new EP
Primus announced the ‘Conspiranoid’ EP in April with the release of its epic, 11-minute opening track, “Conspiranoia.” “I’d been itching to record an opus–basically a long, winding, bastard of a song, reminiscent of some of the compositions I cut my teeth (or ears) on, in my music-hungry adolescence,” bassist Les Claypool said. “”Conspiranoia” was sprouted from a seed I had planted in my notebook a year or so ago–a few lines commenting on the mental state of the contemporary world.”
Aussie Indie-Rockers LAST DINOSAURS Announce Fall Tour Dates with Bad Suns; Release New Song “Auto-Sabotage”
“Self-sabotage. Everybody does it, everybody is puzzled by it,” he explains. “I wrote this song at a time when living through the pandemic in Mexico, the sheer surplus of time that I had firstly got me facing my demons and disciplining myself. But it’s as if the other things in life which generate difficulty or tension that require some sort of self-sabotage to deal with them. To dabble in the dark side of things even if they are mundane (alcohol, lust, addictive video games, gossip) is somewhat necessary to existence. We can’t be hyper controlled and all entirely pure, at least in most cases. But it is the fact that this self-sabotage is so prevalent in everybody, that it seems disproportionately high. Whether it was me, my own mind, my best friend in Mexico or anybody really, the sense of self-destruction at the time was infinitely infuriating. I don’t wish to make a song which simply makes it okay to destroy yourself and your goals, but rather to point it out a problem, to expose it as a sly and clandestine condition of the mind.”
A sultry jazz ballad, “Starseed” finds Katja faced with the difficult decision of whether or not she should leave the man she loves, despite knowing he’ll never fully reciprocate those feelings and they may never be together. The track’s sparse instrumentation enables Katja’s vocals to work as “Starseed”s centerpiece. In the music video, this unreciprocated love is escalated even further. Katja, dressed as Marilyn, is confronted by her lover as he threatens her to get her little red diary, which contains all the evidence she has against him. The confrontation between the two eventually erupts into a physical altercation, with Katja at one point being pinned down to the floor and threatened by the man she loves. A heartbreaking tale of deadly romance that explores the conspiracies surrounding the death of Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, the music video demonstrates Katja’s artistry fully realized and leaves the door open as to what she’ll do next to further her artistic creativity. “Starseed” and “Diamonds” have already won awards, including Best Song at LAFA.
BRYNN CARTELLI UNVEILS NEW SINGLE “GIRL CODE”

Something terrible has happened, people are screaming and crying. He doesn’t know exactly what he’s done and we don’t actually find out but he knows that he is to blame and that the jig is finally up; he’s hit bottom.”

DAYSHELL Releases New Single “Letting Go”
“Letting Go” is a song written for the ones who find themselves in a toxic relationship. A relationship running on empty with no clarity in sight. Sometimes finding the strength to leave can be very difficult. But when you do find that strength, Leaving on civil terms can also be difficult. The resentment for each other can do more harm then the entire relationship itself. This song is a reminder to let it all go. To remind yourself it’s ok to forgive and move forward. To wish them well in their quest for love.
