L.A. Hardcore band Law of Power release Born Into War EP out now on Flatspot Records
“I spent years trying to ‘make it’ in the music industry,” says Kent. “Trying to make a name for myself. Trying to make a dollar. I was newly married to my wife, just had our first baby girl and I was more focused on providing for her than being there for her. I took for granted the things in life that really mattered. I was so busy chasing a dream that I couldn’t see that I had THE DREAM right in front of me the whole time. Now after moving to Texas to be closer to family, working for a pavement company through COVID, and playing over a hundred shows in 2021, here we are with an unimaginable year of success. A lot of people are telling us we just might be the next big thing; that we are going to “make it.” And hell, maybe they’re right. Maybe it’s our time. But what they don’t know is…

NERIAH Releases Sophomore EP “How Do I Get Clean?”
Neriah mentions that “..this EP means a lot to me. I went through a really hard breakup and remember feeling like I was never going to get over him. It felt like an addiction where the highs were so high, but the lows were so low. I remember feeling like I was never gonna find anyone else again and feeling incomplete when we weren’t together. Making this project gave me the closure I needed to ‘get clean’ of the love withdrawals I felt once we ended.”
Bernth Releases Long-Awaited New Single and Music Video “When It Rains”
Brooke Candy and Only Fire get physical with “Yoga”
“I’ve been listening to Brooke Candy since 2012 when she released ‘Das Me,'” says Only Fire, “so her reaching out to make music together felt amazing. I had the idea for ‘Yoga’ in mind for a long time but never got the verses right until she hopped on it and did her thing. Both our styles are very similar so this collab just made sense, and it’s definitely not our last one. I wanted ‘Yoga’ to have a generic house sound you would hear on the radio in the gym; catchy but with very raunchy lyrics. So that’s basically what inspired its sound and lyrical content – I just wanted to make a fun workout song.”
The track listing also features standouts like “Rock And A Hard Place” and “Where It Ends,” which both reached the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart as well. Leave The Light On also includes his most recent release “Never Leave,” hailed by Los Angeles Magazine as a song that “will make a fan even out of those who aren’t country-listening regulars.”

G-Eazy and P-Lo Let Loose on a Party Positive Single from ‘Tales Of The Town’
The multimedia project Tales Of The Town looks at Oakland’s rich Black history from every angle, telling stories directly from community members via a podcast, an album, and much more. Today, Tales Of The Town teams up with local favorites G-Eazy and P-Lo for “PARTY WITH THE GANG” ft. FREDOBAGZ, a new slapper from the upcoming Tales Of The Town album. Though the three previous singles from the album tackled salient issues facing the community, “PARTY WITH THE GANG” proves that the Black experience in Oakland provides plenty of opportunity for letting loose. Blessed with a bouncy Bay instrumental from P-Lo himself, “PARTY WITH THE GANG” finds some of Oakland’s proudest hedonists talking their smack above a rubbery bassline and distorted vocal samples. The new song is a tribute to decades’ worth of NorCal club hits, complete with call-and-response hooks, wild ad-libs, and over-the-top punchlines.
Truly coming into her own, ‘Somebody’ highlights SOHMI’s multidimensional skills as a singer, songwriter, and producer.

Released earlier this year, LOVE SICK’s two thematically linked EPs SICK and SICK II established the Scottish duo’s darkly decadent take on relationships as something different from the pack. A summer highlight came when they hit the BBC Introducing festival (“Their set was even better than I hope… they blew the roof off”) and the station’s support extended to them naming the standalone single ‘I Take It All Back’ as their Track of the Week. LOVE SICK also flourished during their biggest show to date, a Hyde Park set as guests to the iconic Duran Duran.

Combining vivid imagery with masterful production with emotive vocal melodies, Metanoia creates a captivating exposition of Leezy’s struggles with addiction, love, sexuality, anger, and power. Leezy is part of a new wave of talent, with aesthetics influenced by trip-hop legend Beth Gibbons of Portishead, and the lyrical sensibilities of Elliott Smith.
Paravi shares, “”Angry” feels so important to me because it says every emotion I’ve been feeling as I’ve grown into a young woman. It encapsulates the frustration, the loneliness, the confusion, the desperation, every aspect of what life has become…including the fact that it sometimes feels like no one else is experiencing that. It’s the worst kind of state of mind to believe that you are alone in this. That you are ignored and unimportant. This song is a plea, a cry for help to prove that there are other beautiful souls that feel this way, this song is a chance for us to relate in our humanity. From climate change to stopping Asian hate to Roe v Wade, I find myself often asking why everyone isn’t angry? Why they don’t care enough, aren’t loud enough? Why I’m alone in this? But I’m not. None of us are, and the listeners of this song prove that.”
Fused By Defiance Release New Single “Villain” + Official Lyric Video; Tour Dates in Support!
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.
