Thunder Bay’s Along the Lines Release Impactful Debut Metalcore EP “Our Dear Finale”
Along the Lines is a metalcore band out of Thunder Bay, Canada is releasing their debut EP “Our Dear Finale”. The seven-track EP has 24 minutes of songs that hit hard, lyrics that pop, and a dramatic story that is based on a story of domestic abuse. They previously released two singles, to a great response from fans around the world. The band comments on the EP:
Will Sheff (Okkervil River) Releases Solo Debut Nothing Special, Out Today On ATO Records
Today CAUSTIC CASANOVA release new album “Glass Enclosed Nerve Center”
“I wrote ‘HABIBI (MY LOVE)’ as a sweet and simple love song to remind those closest to me how priceless and valuable their love is,” Faouzia says. “I used the word ‘Habibi’ (which means ‘my love’) since it’s an Arabic term I use (as well as anyone who speaks the language) and it is very authentic and real to me. It’s a very simple term but holds so much meaning.”
Indie-alternative act Expert Frowner releases No Smiles EP
Today Charlotte, NC-based act Expert Frowner aka Patrick Haynes releases its debut EP, No Smiles. Calling to mind everything from Oasis and Joy Division to more recent acts like Cloud Nothings, the record is an exploration of rock music fused together into a punk-power-pop sound. It’s an EP born of the extra time at home caused by the pandemic. Haynes recorded all the vocals, guitars and bass on No Smiles in Charlotte, with Miguel Vasquez (Echo Base) adding drums from Philadelphia. It was mixed by Steve Kelly (Sinking Ships Records) and mastered by Jon Markson (Drug Church, Soul Blind). Opener “Rookie of the Year” is a hook-laden track that gives an introduction to Haynes’ knack for writing thoughtful, guitar-driven material. “Last Chance” digs into a more jangly, pop-forward influence while “See You Again” is a fuzzed out number with somber lyrical content. The album ends with a cover of The Kinks’ “Death of a Clown,” which Haynes always wanted to hear distorted and loud, as if a ’90s power-pop band wrote it instead of a ’60s British-Invasion group. The self-release of No Smiles is intended to serve as a calling card to be followed by a full-length Expert Frowner LP in 2023.

Nonô drops infectious new single ‘Lovesick’
Her first release after signing with Helix Records, the infectious, high-energy dance jam, ‘Lovesick’ combines soaring breakdowns and a pumping bassline with Nonô’s irresistible vocals. Produced by Lewis Thompson (David Guetta, Joel Corry) and co-written with Karen Poole (Becky Hill, Kylie Minogue), ‘Lovesick’ is the latest in a long line of revered singles Nonô has released this year, following on from ‘All Day’ with Welshy, ‘Time To Groove’ with Majestic, ‘Deep’ with Example and Bou, and ‘Sky High’ with Alok.
This time around, the group break dimensional boundaries, layering pensive, poetic, and ponderous wordplay above psychedelic architecture. Producer Ant sets airy sonic flourishes against a backdrop of live instrumentation courtesy of G Koop on guitar, bass, and percussion and Graham Richards on piano, organ, and synth. It instantly transfixes as Slug’s bars cut deep. Getting existential, he thinks aloud, “This could be the last song that I ever wrote. Only Heaven knows I’m like whatever though. Everybody’s gotta travel across it. When I go, I hope I go from supernatural causes.”

electronic artists INZO and Elohim release “Earth Magic” single
“Earth Magic” is INZO’s first release for Lowly. (home of NGHTMRE, Said The Sky, TroyBoi, and more) and heralds a new direction for his sound marked by the more quiet, introspective areas of his range. Created during lockdown, Earth Magic is more cinematic and calmer, with lo-fi beats, piano breakdowns, and transcendent synth beams—a byproduct of INZO’s renewed focus on health and wellness. Making music itself has become therapeutic for him, so it’s fitting that his new work reflects that cozy headspace. As much as he enjoys playing live, he especially loves the quieter, more intimate moments of listening back to a track he’s made for the first time and realizing it’s exactly what he’d envisioned.
