Cleveland doom-gazers HIRAM-MAXIM deliver intense new album Colder today

Cleveland’s HIRAM-MAXIM deliver their intense new, city-levelling ripper Colder today. Unlike the hurried sessions of old, Colder is the result of a more nuanced, un-rushed studio experience. The result is an album with twice the songs of the band’s debut, but retaining all the hallmarks of HIRAM-MAXIM’s noisy sound, a sonic sturm and drang reflecting the band’s varied influences.


“Save Me (From Myself)” takes the listener on a sonic journey with vivid highs and jarring lows. “I lost my light on my own, tryna find my way out of the dark — terrified, all alone,” Hume sings over waves of melodic bass. “But you saw the smoke and you came, pulled me through the flames, carried me away.” The song builds to a bone-rattling drop that boasts bombastic synths and propulsive percussion, making it another winning addition to NURKO’s discography.

Oracle Sisters Debut Album ‘Hydranism’ Out Now

San Cisco Releases Hypnotizing New Track “Horoscope”


“After each of my last four albums I’ve released acoustic counterparts – it’s something that fans expect at this point,” notes Lights. “But PƎP never felt like an acoustic thing to me. I actually haven’t picked up my acoustic guitar in a long time, it’s just not right for this era. PƎP is alt, hyper and vibrantly sarcastic, visually extravagant and exaggerated in all forms, so I wanted its counterpart to be the absolute opposite: dark, chill and electronic. I enjoyed really developing my production toolset, digging into the chill step genre, using heavy bass tones set on dreamy soundscapes. If PƎP is for dancing and feeling yourself, dEd is for driving and making out. After all, dEd is PEP turned PƎP down—even the tracklist is reversed.”


On “Lost My Mind (Wake Up),” BUNT. samples Elley’s original 2018 hit single, “LOST MY MIND.” BUNT. comments, “I was delivering groceries on a bike in order to pay my rent last year, believing that this music thing will all work out at some point. Now I can announce this. Elley Duhé has been one of my favourite artists for years now – having a song with her still feels unreal to me.”

Puma June Sheds the Past in New Single “Glass Curtain”

“Glass Curtain” is ultimately about shedding the weight of the darkness of the past. “My sister, brother and I didn’t have an easy childhood,” Puma June discloses about the new single. “This song started as an apology to my siblings for how much pain they felt, and my own feeling of helplessness to take that hurt away. It grew into more of a call for us to come together and let [it all] go.”


“Street Honors” cements the range of realness Ralo has maintained since his emergence on the music scene. Currently incarcerated, Ralo shows that no holds are barred for the Rap maven as he expresses his deepest thoughts and overall artistry. Evoking feelings that make his presence felt through grim bells and a knocking base, “Street Honors” moreover doubles-down on the strength of Ralo, which has not—in the slightest bit, weakened. As it stands, it has been 97 months since Ralo has been incarcerated. His forthcoming project, along with today’s new track, was recorded entirely on the phone.

TODAY Sam Corbett of The Sheepdogs Debuts Solo LP ‘NUTANA’

“Ave H Blue is the street I live on. When I was diagnosed in summer 2018, we had to cancel a couple of shows so I could have surgery,” Corbett says candidly. “I had some follow-up tests, and the cancer had spread to my lymph nodes. I had to back out of a couple of Sheepdogs tours to get the treatment. That was a very hard decision because I’ve been in the band from the beginning in 2004. I’d never not played a Sheepdogs show. The radiation treatments made me very sick and weak; I couldn’t even play the drums. But I could play the piano, and I started writing a bunch of melodies and songs that later became this album. It’s what I worked on when the guys were on tour, and I was recovering at home.”
