Ron Gallo Debuts Apocalyptic Dance-Punk Single/Video via Under The Radar | Nat’l Tour | LP out 3/3 on Kill Rock Stars

Ron Gallo welcomes 2023 with the release of his apocalyptic dance-punk single “AT LEAST I’M DANCING”, the latest cut off his blistering, brand new studio album, FOREGROUND MUSIC due out March 3, 2023 on Kill Rock Stars. Gallo’s critical political and sociopolitical vision is met with an encouraging playfulness and an intellectual sense of humor as he mentally dances between hope and crisis, caring and apathy. The “AT LEAST I’M DANCING” video follows his optimistic approach with the comical image of someone with giant headphones dancing and flailing combined with social media imagery while the world burns in the background. “What else can you do?” says Gallo. “I don’t know where things are going, but I think the world is gonna be what we make it and so giving a shit is always a good choice. If that fails at least we will enjoy the last moments we have.”

Nick Waterhouse announces new album “The Fooler” + shares “Hide & Seek / The Fooler” | New album out 1st April via Innovative Leisure

The title of the sixth album from the Californian singer-songwriter is more than just the name of one of its dozen immaculate tracks. The Fooler is both a clue and a red herring. The Fooler is the observed and the observer, narrator and subject, truth and lie. The Fooler is the shadow and reflection of a city the artist knows sufficiently well to wander with his eyes closed, and a place which very possibly never even existed. The Fooler is not so much an unreliable narrator as a constantly shifting perspective. The Fooler is the new album by Nick Waterhouse, and it’s a lot.
