Industrial Pop Artist BABYCHAOS Collaborates With DIE KRUUPS On A Cover Of SIOUXSIE SIOUX To Kick Off The HALLOWEEN Season!
Aptly described as a “Post-apocalyptic Bratz doll from hell,” babychaos is the musical persona of model Lyzzie Larosa, who blends the harsh electronic sounds and massive guitar distortion of gothic-industrial with modern electronic music and her own pop vocal sense of melody. For her newest single, babychaos covers another pioneering female artist, the great Siouxsie Sioux, on a frighteningly good version of the song “Halloween” from Siouxsie’s celebrated 1981 album Juju. And helping babychaos craft this memorable tune is German industrial icon Jürgen Engler of Die Krupps, who brings all the pieces together in a sharp, danceable package to kick off this year’s spooky season!

Lo-Fi Hero (Amy Winehouse/Eminem) Release Debut Single
The whole project of Lo-Fi Hero is based on taking live performances then turning them into samples and resampling the parts in inventive ways. They want to show new ways of using modern technology in conjunction with old technology to create a new sonic landscape – in essence, making modern music on analog gear.
BOIL is “a collection of five songs that span a bunch of different influences and sounds, but we wanted to be very intentional in creating some sonic through lines that tie everything together,” says Portland-based indie rockers FORTY FEET TALL about their new rage-filled EP BOIL, (Out now via Magnetic Moon). Launching from where their previous album A Good Distraction left off, BOIL progresses the band forward in a new genre-bending direction. “The EP captures where we’re headed well, I think. It’s a lot more post-punk oriented and energetic. I think it holds a lot of anger that so many people are feeling while still being playful and fun,” explains Forty Feet Tall. While that album was focused mainly on the effects the pandemic and the political climate had on the band, this EP harnesses the adrenaline and angst that being cooped up has created.

Global Superstar & Hip Hop Legend LIL WAYNE Celebrates His 40TH BIRTHDAY!
GRAMMY Award-winning, multi-platinum selling music icon Lil Wayne has achieved another milestone by ringing in his 40th birthday. This past weekend, he gathered with his entire family and a few friends to commemorate his birthday with an intimate dinner. The evening included other iconic guests such as YG, Yella Beezy, Shannon Sharpe, Skip Bayless and Marcus Wiley. The night included a special performance by Keith Sweat, a set by DJ Meel and was sponsored by Wayne’s own Bumbu Rum.
The new album differs from last year’s acclaimed Djinn by trading sparkling, arpeggiated soundscapes for a dusky mix of organic instrumentation, vinyl samples, field recordings, and “analog dirt” inspired by artists like Portishead, Little Dragon, and Forest Swords that might be best described as “outlaw electronica.”
Before The Reds, Pinks & Purples started getting noticed by a larger audience, the I Should Have Helped You 4 song EP snuck out on Swedish experimental label I Dischi Del Barone and quickly disappeared, becoming a little-heard but often whispered about piece of the RPPs discography. Recorded around the same time as the material that ended up on his breakthrough LP Uncommon Weather, it contains some of the best examples of Glenn Donaldson’s melancholy but wry take on indie pop. Needless to say, it’s terrific.
