WHITE REAPER ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ASKING FOR A RIDE
Elaborating on “Pages” and Asking for a Ride, vocalist / guitarist Tony Esposito remarked, “It seems like ‘Pages’ could’ve easily existed on one of our earlier records, it’s just a few chords and a simple melody; but because of that, I’d say that it’s pretty unique to the rest of our new album. We can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on.”
PC Music collaborator Golin debuts her futuristic, J-Pop opera “Rowdy,” video out now
Today, Japanese-American multidisciplinary artist Golin debuts her new single and video for “Rowdy,” a frenetic, hard-hitting track that blurs the lines between J-pop, glitchcore, and experimental club music. “Rowdy” presents an otherworldly forbidden love story, and its visual is equally as enthralling – Golin pulls us through tunnels of alternate realities, each one represented by a different character with their own props and backgrounds. Within these seemingly isolated worlds, Golin reacts to the sense of enclosure and fights back.

Jimmy Edgar teams with LIZ for “EUPHORIA”
Jimmy Edgar, the Detroit-raised electronic/hip hop producer whose collaborators range from Hudson Mohawke to DAWN to Vince Staples and beyond, has just shared “EUPHORIA,” a swirling stab of experimental electronic pop from his forthcoming LIQUIDS HEAVEN album (out via Innovative Leisure on November 11). “EUPHORIA” features vocals from LIZ, the underground pop princess whose trademark mix of future-kitsch and ’90s/00s R&B has rendered her the proclaimed “First Lady of Mad Decent.”
Said Brandon Curtis of their forthcoming LP and its title track: “This record is the result of an unconventional approach, our writing and recording techniques were all about recording the moments as they occurred, with minimal edits and no self censorship. Our plan was to catch ideas as purely as they could be captured. The stream of consciousness approach resulted in material that we later knitted together into song form. This song represents a slice of that process.”

It’s a reminder of the divine dichotomy: to be a light in this world, we must embrace our darkness.

[PRESS] New Nightmarathons Album Out Now!!!
Surprise!!! Pittsburgh punk group, Nightmarathons, have a brand new album and it’s out right now. No premieres, no build up, no waiting. Hidden Vigorish is their Sophomore album (A-F Records) and one that builds on the foundation laid out on their debut album Missing Parts (A-F Records). The guitars have a certain twang and warmth to them that perfectly matches the bite of the vocals. It’s familiar but inviting. In fact, it seems baked into the band’s DNA to deliver the youthful and unapologetic sound that they discovered in VFW hall shows of yesteryear. The songwriting feels even more focused and I can’t help but hear a distinct Against Me! influence throughout the album. Hidden Vigorish is available on all of your preferred digital platforms today, so dig into it. Nightmarathons will be performing at The Fest 20 on Saturday, October 29th at The Backyard @ Boca Fiesta from 11:30 PM – 12:00 AM.

FORLESEN Premiere New Album Black Terrain At Decibel Magazine
FORLESEN are streaming their album, Black Terrain, in its entirety over at Decibel Magazine. The album is officially out on October 28th via I, Voidhanger Records. The band draws from dark ambient, epic doom, black metal and slowcore, subverting traditional songwriting.
The band comments: “Black Terrain coheres around themes of dissolution and entropy, traversing and overlapping the intimate and personal with the metaphysical and cosmic, and in doing so, seeking the transcendent. However high-minded this might sound, heartbreak, things falling apart, death, transcendence—these are universal themes. So our muse dances or lurches in perhaps seemingly disparate places that sing with this resonance and we draw thread from them all to hopefully weave something new.”

Pepper Lewis Releases “FABIO” Music Video
Cosmic black metal band from the extreme metal homeland of Gothenburg, Sweden, LIGHTLORN will release their EP These Nameless Worlds on October 28th! Ahead of the album’s release, the band is now streaming the EP in its entirety via Invisible Oranges.
The band comments: “If you’ve ever gazed up at a starry night sky and felt insignificant, small, and alone, then you’ve already heard this album. Perhaps not these exact songs or melodies, but you’ve felt the emotions they’re trying to convey. We really hope these songs resonate with listeners, and we’re looking forward to writing and releasing more music.”
