BONES: Chicago Extreme Metal Outfit With Current/Ex-Members Of Usurper And More To Release Fourth Album, Vomit, Through Disorder Recordings; Teaser, Artwork, And More Posted
BONES unites drummer/vocalist Joe Warlord (Usurper), guitarist Carcass Chris (ex-Usurper), and bassist/lead vocalist Jon Necromancer (Contrition, High Spirits, ex-Usurper). Vomit sees The Windy City’s filthiest trio continue their signature blend of death, thrash, and black metal on cuts like “Beware Of Ghouls” and “Noose,” while also venturing into sludgier elements on the title track and ripper “Tower Of Skulls.” Drummer Joe Warlord even treads in early Neurosis territory on the tribal drum heavy instrumental, “Retch.” While these elements are truly new territory for BONES, overall, the band relentlessly sticks to the roots of their tainted peers in Autopsy, Coffins, Nunslaughter, and the like.

Connie Constance Releases New Track “Mood Hoover”
Today, budding indie rock star Connie Constance releases new track, “Mood Hoover”, from her forthcoming album, Miss Power due out November 4th via Play It Again Sam. Full of killer melodies and scintillating lyrics, “Mood Hoover” is a love-hate song complete with playful guitar riffs and one of Connie’s trademark anthemic choruses.
George FitzGerald enlists Panda Bear on “Passed Tense”
Opening to a subtle yet enveloping melodic line, the track drops back into more front-facing territory with a garage-esque percussive arrangement and the introduction of Panda Bear’s unmistakable vocal guiding the track’s up-tempo nature. As the track breaks into its chorus, Panda Bear’s delivery helps present one of the album’s most indisputably feel-good moments – unveiling his deft ability for bold, upfront songwriting with no less of a rousing edge. George’s instrumental work on the track never strays far from the limelight; simultaneously rhythmic, delicate and energetic. “Passed Tense” is a sophisticated work of pop-leaning electronic music that helps to further showcase Stellar Drifting’s stunning diversity.
ICYMI: TAI VERDES DROPS NEW SINGLE “HOW DEEP?” OFF HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ALBUM HDTV, OUT SEPTEMBER 16TH

OUT NOW: Giolì & Assia release new single “Eurydice” ahead of forthcoming album ‘Fire, Hell & Holy Water’
Following the release of recent singles “Fire Hell and Holy Water,” “Silence,” “I’ll Be Fine,” and “Playing Chess,” “Eurydice” brings us closer to Giolì and Assia’s highly anticipated LP release. Through enchanting melodies and imaginative lyricism, “Eurydice” details the tragic love story of mythological Greek characters Orpheus and Eurydice. A delicate addition to their collection of intricate originals, “Eurydice” beautifully pairs Assia’s ethereal vocals and Giolì’s dynamic percussion. Captivating from start to finish, “Eurydice” is a true testament to their talents both as songwriters and storytellers.
Knifeplay announce their sophomore LP with “Promise”
Combining folk acoustics, glass slide guitar, and orchestral strings with shoegaze distortion, toy keyboards and Sam DiGristine’s broken saxophone (mem. Full of Hell), “Promise” shows Knifeplay working gracefully with their ever-expanding, complex sonic palette. “Promise” takes a simple line stolen from Tony Soprano — “You’re born into this shit. You are what you are.” — and projects it onto stagnant landscapes of rural America “where rivers meet in lakes of mud and animals sleep through heat” creating an abstract reflection on American stagnation.

THE ACADEMIC RETURN WITH FIRST NEW MUSIC OF 2022, “DON’T TAKE IT PERSONALLY”
“Don’t Take It Personally” is the sound of a band that intrinsically know their way around a melody. Friends for as long as they can collectively form memories as boys at school, there’s that classic gang mentality about this four-piece honed by years of live shows from the halls and backroom pubs of Ireland to the wide-open fields of the festival circuit (via support slots for the likes of the Rolling Stones, Noel Gallagher, and The Strokes). Musically, the track doesn’t require too much description; a bold guitar tune that best evokes the sound of primetime 2000s NY guitar bands, harnessed by vocalist Craig Fitzgerald’s acute observations on the fragility of man and how that feeds a desperate desire to be seen as anything but fragile. It packs a punch and demands your attention.

Platinum band MisterWives New Single
An intensely personal reflection on growth in unexpected places, MisterWives’ last album SUPERBLOOM marked a moment of major transformation for frontwoman Mandy Lee and her bandmates: Etienne Bowler (drums), William Hehir (bass), Marc Campbell (guitar), and Mike Murphy (saxophone). The New York City-bred band’s third full-length, the 19-track epic found MisterWives greatly expanding their already-adventurous sound, introducing new textures and colors to their magnetic form of indie-pop. On the album’s soul-stirring title track, MisterWives close out SUPERBLOOM with a moment of pure triumph and a profound sense of possibility. With its chorus including a lyric Lee later adopted as a mantra in times of self-doubt (“I deserve congratulations, ’cause I came out the other side”), “SUPERBLOOM” draws much of its power from its graceful arrangement of so many potent elements: soulful horns and luminous piano melodies, hard-hitting rhythms and gospel-choir harmonies.
