EXO’S CHEN RELEASES NEW SOLO EP, ‘LAST SCENE’
John Grant shares his take on “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” (as heard on Netflix’s Inside Man)
Popularized most famously by Johnny Cash for the Rick Rubin produced American Recordings series, John Grant has just released his cover of famous American folk song “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” – out now on Bella Union – which appears as the theme song for the drama Inside Man which just debuted on Netflix in America. Since premiering, Inside Man has been top five trending on the platform! The decision to use the song and record a new version was made after Johnny Cash’s recording was used as temporary music in the edit. At a recent press event for the show, director Paul McGuigan said that it was actually composer David Arnold’s “brilliant” idea to use the song, as when looking at a cut of the episode he said of the temporary music, ‘Well this is perfect, so why don’t we do a version of that?'”

ICYMI Bailey James, Finalist of The John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Releases “Better Angels”
“This song is dedicated to the world. We are all battling something. Everyone is dragging some type of pain that most people around them have no idea about. There is no pain or loss that this life can put on you that heaven can’t heal. I challenge everyone to love more, fight less and help those that need it. We are stronger together than we are all alone. Sometimes it’s just recognizing someone’s existence through a smile or wave that can set them on a more positive course. May the world know better angels,” Bailey James says of the new single.

In The Rosemary Dreams emerges with noise rock and critical thinking in the musicvideo for “Teleincision”
While devices and peripherals don’t always capture the real, art is the light that reveals the world. Low light over the rubble of objects as charming as they are obsolete, expressions loaded: the video for “Teleincision” has somber imagery, which suggests the aesthetics of indie-pop celebrities.
The sound of this single moves from noise rock to the striking beats and robotic riffs of industrial rock to pack a free dance. When the darkest shadows give way to the glare of the spotlight, revealing the joy of finding music that touches the soul.
“Awash” was one of the first songs produced from my upcoming album, and is definitely the most experimental. Combining UK Garage with lofi, I made an 88BPM lofi beat and warped it to 120BPM, which laid the foundation for the track. Inspired by UKG artists like salute, as well as by friends and collaborators Indigo Eyes and Tyde, I was excited to give this genre a spin – Houis

Rich started creating his own music and promoted it through social media, but in order to double down on getting his songs played, he networked heavily and built relationships to get his music heard.

Elizabeth P.W. Shares Her Second Indie Folk Album ‘The Company You Keep’
The Company You Keep was written during the midst of the pandemic. As someone who suffers from Crohn’s disease – a chronic gastrointestinal disease, Elizabeth P.W. had to live in extreme isolation for 2 years. “I had to find new ways of maintaining my relationship with friends and family. I noticed that in isolation and with all the chaos that was going on in the world, relationships changed quickly and sometimes severely. And in my isolation, ruminations ran wild. This was a blessing and a curse. To have the time to figure out your relationship to yourself and others is a gift we may never feel so strongly again, but it was not without pain, heartbreak and discord.”
