New Today // emie nathan – “good thing”

Explaining how the song came to be, emie explains “good thing depicts the breaking point of a very good friendship and the agonizing moment where we decided to call it a day. and I moved home-truthfully it felt like a breakup. What it came down to, was a difference in perspective over what we both needed from that space. We were at cross-purposes, trying to be as respectful as possible but hurting each other in the process looking for comfort in a stressful and confined string of winter months during Covid living together. Simply put, it wasn’t how I think either of us wanted it to be. I’d like to think that good thing encapsulates the maturity behind the decision to leave the apartment & the support we had for one another in our next steps, but to me it also speaks to the sadder undertones of losing an element of friendship and things feeling forever changed.”

HEILUNG Shares Mood Video for New Song, “Tenet”

The band explains, “HEILUNG comment on the track: “Our third single release is a palindrome. All individual musical parts, melodies and instruments (and even at times the lyrics) play the same both forward and backwards. The song is based on the “Sator Square”, the earliest datable two-dimensional palindrome, first found in Herculaneum (Italy), a city buried under the ashes of the erupting Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, at that time part of the flourishing Roman Empire. What is particularly interesting with this palindrome is that not only does it read forwards and backwards but also vertically in both directions.


The chilled-out single is a low-fi release that puts Sally Boy’s melodic vocals on full display, volleying back and forth between crooning choruses and his signature fast-paced, witty lyricism. The breezy alt-pop track echoes the easy-going, summer-soaked sounds fans can expect from his latest body of work later this month.

En los pasados años, hemos tenido la dicha de conocer a varios artistas quienes continúan su recorrido, sin miedo al qué dirán, trayéndonos temas que de inmediato se convierten en nuestros favoritos; por eso mismo, por su diferencia. También se dice, que cada artista, debe atreverse a triunfar, con versatilidad, apostando a su visión y si es posible, colaborar para con un fin común; llevar alegría a un público exigente quien pide Salsa Nueva, sin olvidar sus raíces.

Este es precisamente uno de esos casos, pues Edwin “El Calvito” Reyes, en esta ocasión, une fuerzas con el Ex-Vocalista de la Corporación Latina de Puerto Rico, Joe López, para con un tema atrevido, que nos lleva a esos tiempos que el salsero tanto atesora, presentando su nuevo tema llamado “AHORA ME TOCA A MI”.

Russian Circles have released their first ever music video for the title track of their forthcoming LP Gnosis, available next week, August 19th, via Sargent House. The Centerpiece of the album “Gnosis” begins with a slow-build exercise in krautrock methodologies—drones, guitar arpeggios, cosmic synth, hypnotic drum patterns—that eventually explodes into the wall-of-sound bombardment Russian Circles are known for. The accompanying video, directed/edited by Joe Kell, is full of dark imagery driving towards the actual definition of the word “Gnosis.” The band explains:


The rising artist Ber has earned praise for her heartfelt songwriting and angelic vocals heard in her early releases such as ‘Meant To Be’.

Broken Bells is the musical partnership between James Mercer (The Shins) and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse). At the foundation of this mutually magnetic, incredibly close friendship is its origin: a shared love of music, and more specifically the many influences the two have in common. This diverse sonic array makes their 3rd album, INTO THE BLUE, a kaleidoscopic genre and decade spanning ode to those influences — From The Beatles to Pink Floyd, from ’60s psychedelia to 70s rock and AM Gold, from ’80s New Wave to ’90s Trip Hop… and of course the formative Elephant 6 collective. The first Broken Bells album to feature samples in addition to James and Brian’s own organic sounds, INTO THE BLUE finds Broken Bells in uncharted territory. James and Brian venture into bold new directions while retaining their signature glistening pop perfection with just a hint of the sinister.


Elaborating on the new track, Tones And I explained, “’Charlie’ was a song that came out of nowhere, it was done in three hours and we wrote the bass line first. It’s about missing my dog Charlie and other things. It’s a funky jam and I just wanted to have some fun with it.”

NEW MUSIC: Sleepy Tom Drops Groovy Tune, ‘Time and Time Again’ (ft. Hotel Mira)

Watch Franklin Gothic’s “Spark” music video; debut LP out on 8/19

Jay gave some words regarding the single’s origin: “’Spark’ was inspired by a pretty tragic event that occurred in my life around the time I was writing the record. My mind was consumed with “what if” scenarios. I was imagining a different outcome, where someone’s pain was given space or accepted. I guess I was denying the reality of what happened as a way to cope. I’m really grateful to Erik, though, for making this song what it is. The version I originally sent him was similar, but weighed down and brooding. The first time he shared the final version with me, I was floored. It changed my whole perspective. The sadness and discomfort are still very much a part of the song, but he captured something nurturing and compassionate, which was really comforting to me.”

He surveys the night skyline alone as he raps in the midst of penthouse debauchery.

Cory Singer Does it Again and Pays Homage to a Lost Love In New Single “I Still Love You”


Directed by Erik Rojas, the “SELF-SABOTAGE” visual is a cinematic display of the group’s day to day life on tour. Accented with vivid hues of color, the anthem’s snappy guitars and fuzzy electronics underline the manically catchy hook highlighted by Awsten’s wild sky-high register. The spirited vocals and infectiously cheerful guitar riff perfectly contrast with the diary-esque lyrics that detail Awsten’s self-imposed restrictions. “SELF-SABOTAGE” is yet another illustration of the trio’s uncanny knack for the unpredictable.

“Happier Now”, co-written with The Temper Trap’s Toby Dundas and produced by Tones and I collaborator Konstantin Kersting, is a perfect introduction to the Elizabeth of 2022. The lyrical motifs of the wonderful world of nature are recast in neon here, their old prismatic glow replaced by a dangerous, alluring coolness. Unlike Elizabeth’s protagonist’s past, though, the main character in “Happier Now” is marked by her defiance, her total refusal to backslide even as she’s pulled into an ex-partner’s web: “I am happier now,” she insists, “you’re not around.”

Music Submission: Radio Drive

Radio Drive featuring Kevin Gullickson had just released a full album in September of 2021, titled “Before The Day is Through”. It was still the early winter months of 2022 in Minnesota, where Kevin lives and has his home studio. The timing wasn’t quite right to resume live performances, so Kevin being the ever busy musician, songwriter and recording artist, decided to record some new song ideas before the arrival of spring. He didn’t want to undertake such a huge project as a full album and yet had too many songs to just release a single, so a 4 song EP was the perfect option.

Four-member girl group TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE have released their sixth album ‘Nocturnal’ – their first full-length release in seven years. The title refers to creatures that come alive at night, as well as night-blooming flowers, and the album has the theme of “thinking of someone on a sleepless night”. The group members were still elementary and junior high school students at the time of their debut, so this will be their first album they’ve made while in their twenties – and its nighttime theme is an indication that they have grown up.

The result is 9 tracks of Fuck It, If You Don’t Care then We Don’t Care and We’ll Just Do What We Do. Cheers to all the Outcasts!”

NEDY premieres “Fuel” – with Web-Exclusive Interview


“My latest single Ain’t Gonna Be Mine describes the moment after a breakup when you finally remember who you are again,” Emily explains. “You are past the point of feeling sad and you start to remember your own worth. To me, that moment is the most important part of the healing process. The lyrics of this song are empowering and help with moving on. The song refuses to let the person who broke your heart be the one that got away. They will not be your biggest regret in life, they will not be a mistake that you made in your past, and the best part is – it is your choice. This song is a little reminder that only you can decide who and what is going to have power over your life.”


“‘The Tunnel’ is about the longing to connect, and the fear of actually doing so,” explains Jonathan Rosen. “It’s about letting yourself grow towards someone or something, and knowing that in order to get to some light, you gotta first venture out into some darkness. The lyric ‘I know that there’s a light at the end of this tunnel and there’s a tunnel at the end of that light there’ illuminates the uncertainty and time-loop madness that we were all feeling at the start of the pandemic in our own unique ways. I was trying to get at the notion that life is an endless state of transition – we may seek that light at the end of the tunnel, and enjoy it when we get there, but must remember that there’s always another tunnel waiting. At the end of that dark, another light – it goes on and on… But we can find consistency in those changes by grounding them in our connections with others. Some songs take weeks of adjusting and fussing over, while others flip on like a lamp, fully formed. ‘The Tunnel’ was an easy one, something I simply needed to write.”

“It’s a massive honor to have my song The Emperor chosen as the anthem for ESPN’s college football season.

The Happy Fits share new single “Around And Around” ahead of third LP out Aug 26

“Around And Around” is the forthcoming album’s opening track, one that sets the tone and speaks to how life, in the midst of a pandemic and beyond, can often feel like an endless loop–mirrored by the track’s magnetic circular guitar riff written by guitarist Ross Monteith years prior. Explaining how the track came to be, lead vocalist and cellist Calvin Langman says, “It works two-fold to me; during the dog days of the pandemic, it felt like the world was just going around and around and nothing changed. Yet, there’d come months or weeks when it felt like the world was changing so rapidly and violently that I couldn’t keep up.”

Primus releases official video for “Follow The Fool,” vinyl edition of new EP

Primus announced the ‘Conspiranoid’ EP in April with the release of its epic, 11-minute opening track, “Conspiranoia.” “I’d been itching to record an opus–basically a long, winding, bastard of a song, reminiscent of some of the compositions I cut my teeth (or ears) on, in my music-hungry adolescence,” bassist Les Claypool said. “”Conspiranoia” was sprouted from a seed I had planted in my notebook a year or so ago–a few lines commenting on the mental state of the contemporary world.”

Aussie Indie-Rockers LAST DINOSAURS Announce Fall Tour Dates with Bad Suns; Release New Song “Auto-Sabotage” 

“Self-sabotage. Everybody does it, everybody is puzzled by it,” he explains. “I wrote this song at a time when living through the pandemic in Mexico, the sheer surplus of time that I had firstly got me facing my demons and disciplining myself. But it’s as if the other things in life which generate difficulty or tension that require some sort of self-sabotage to deal with them. To dabble in the dark side of things even if they are mundane (alcohol, lust, addictive video games, gossip) is somewhat necessary to existence. We can’t be hyper controlled and all entirely pure, at least in most cases. But it is the fact that this self-sabotage is so prevalent in everybody, that it seems disproportionately high. Whether it was me, my own mind, my best friend in Mexico or anybody really, the sense of self-destruction at the time was infinitely infuriating. I don’t wish to make a song which simply makes it okay to destroy yourself and your goals, but rather to point it out a problem, to expose it as a sly and clandestine condition of the mind.”

Katja Glieson Channels Marilyn Monroe in New Single “Starseed”

A sultry jazz ballad, “Starseed” finds Katja faced with the difficult decision of whether or not she should leave the man she loves, despite knowing he’ll never fully reciprocate those feelings and they may never be together. The track’s sparse instrumentation enables Katja’s vocals to work as “Starseed”s centerpiece. In the music video, this unreciprocated love is escalated even further. Katja, dressed as Marilyn, is confronted by her lover as he threatens her to get her little red diary, which contains all the evidence she has against him. The confrontation between the two eventually erupts into a physical altercation, with Katja at one point being pinned down to the floor and threatened by the man she loves. A heartbreaking tale of deadly romance that explores the conspiracies surrounding the death of Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, the music video demonstrates Katja’s artistry fully realized and leaves the door open as to what she’ll do next to further her artistic creativity. “Starseed” and “Diamonds” have already won awards, including Best Song at LAFA.


WHO ON EARTH Premiere Music Video for New Single “Down & Out”

WHO ON EARTH is a band with stories to tell and experiences to share and they once again deliver them with groove and melody. Bassist and songwriter Pete Rizzi explains, “This is a song about alcoholism and drug addiction. It’s about a guy who wakes up after being in a blackout. Something terrible has happened, people are screaming and crying. He doesn’t know exactly what he’s done and we don’t actually find out but he knows that he is to blame and that the jig is finally up; he’s hit bottom.”

DAYSHELL Releases New Single “Letting Go”

“Letting Go” is a song written for the ones who find themselves in a toxic relationship. A relationship running on empty with no clarity in sight. Sometimes finding the strength to leave can be very difficult. But when you do find that strength, Leaving on civil terms can also be difficult. The resentment for each other can do more harm then the entire relationship itself. This song is a reminder to let it all go. To remind yourself it’s ok to forgive and move forward. To wish them well in their quest for love.

An introduction to Roofman: first album single out now

Some songs need the glitz and blitz of big city life, the concrete jungle and the urban drama, drenched in white noise. Others simply a forest, the serene whisper of the wind in the leaves. It’s not hard to guess which world Thijs van der Meulen alias Roofman is coming from. The reason his achingly beautiful upcoming debut album “Still The Mess I Was” sounds so big and glorious is that he decided to record it in Hamburg’s analogue heaven, Clouds Hill studio (a.o. The Killers, Peter Doherty, Elbow). The trees and the streets, the calm and the storm: Roofman is a man of contrasts.

Would you act the same way if someone was watching you? Would they think differently of you? Therefore, should you look at yourself differently? Who’s the real you?

LA’s Paper Pools shares “Evil” music video, directed by Philipp Dietz

“There are two sides to this song. It is very uptempo and seems upbeat on the surface, yet the lyrics are dark. Contrast is a key theme for the EP. I wrote “Evil” from the perspective of someone like me (though not necessarily me) who is in a toxic relationship. There’s a real push-and-pull in a relationship like that: I need to reject this person, but I also really love this person. But the song also applies to anything in life that can be both positive and negative. There are stretches in our lives when we latch onto things that may bring us happiness and joy, yet they’re not good for us long-term. Thinking back to my upbringing with the Jehovah’s Witnesses, I was raised in an extremely specific way of thinking that had both positive and negative moments. But I reached a point when the turmoil became too much, and I needed to take life in a new direction.” -Allen Orr

The A.M.s Release New Atmospheric Single, “Ignite the Sky”

The cinematic yet empathetic track gives listeners a deep understanding of the profundity and emotional care The A.M.s possess through their nostalgic lyrics. “Humans coping with separation – whether because of adoption, quarantine, distance, or death – try as we might, we can only do so much,” The A.M.s state. “Continually, we hope for the stars to align so we can all be reunited once again.” The six-minute track centers around the feeling of longing for someone in hopes of reuniting with them once more. “But clouds begin to gather, the night no longer clear. Celestial friends move on, I’m wishing they were near,” is a line expressing both metaphorically and literally times of separation. “I like to write in metaphors, and I often use nature as inspiration. The richness and sonic range of textures attempts to capture the immense vastness of the sky while the moments of quiet remind us of being solitary, separated within that vastness,” says Langan. According to Libertini, “Spiritually, we’ve been a band way longer. Probably from a past life.” The track depicts that the stars will align again and bring people together.

Indie Rockers FORTY FEET TALL Exposes the Ugly Creep Hiding Behind the Picture-Perfect Date in “BOIL” Video. New EP out September 23.

Krisiun Releases Lyric Video For “War Blood Hammer”

“’War Blood Hammer’ follows the same path of the other 3 singles we’ve released for ‘Mortem Solis’, maybe a bit more tech oriented but we tried to sound as brutal, aggressive and natural we can but avoiding all the artificial tools like grid editing, emulators, plugins, metronomes. All was recorded to give people the real Death Metal vibe of early 90s’. It’s not perfect but heavy!!! Death Metal nowadays sounds too melodic for me, too artificial. Bands are technical but not brutal or aggressive! We want to bring the real death metal vibe back but with the modern approach and have Krisiun identify there,” states KRISIUN guitarist Moyses Kolesne about “War Blood Hammer”.


He notes: “With so much online noise artists have become the flavor of the day. I wanted to step back on the scene to ask, “Do you really speak the language? Do you know what your name is?” Calling into question the validity of the industry.”

Dark Rockers, Sisteria, Share New Single “Wade My Way”

Sisteria is a thunderous new psychedelic band from Norman, OK, spearheaded by folk-singer-turned-rock- goddess Katie Williams. With an alliance of accomplished players at her side, she spelunks into deep, primal consciousness to reclaim buried treasures of the self. If it is taboo to fraternize with raw mineral deposits of untempered life force, Sisteria wears its adultery with the purest scarlet. Dark Matter — and Sisteria itself — is a testament to what feels right. From the outset of the album’s incarnation, the band unchained itself from streaming algorithms and audience expectations, choosing instead to feed the desires of the art itself. Naturally, this fits the nature of psychedelic rock to a tee, but it also captures the album’s themes of embodied spirituality. What better way is there to rekindle unity within (and beyond) the self than through the transformative power of unadulterated music? –Evan Jarvicks, Make Oklahoma Weirder

$uicideboy$ share new album Sing Me a Lullaby, My Sweet Temptation

“In the past, a lot of the music was about heroin, oxy, hating your life, and wanting to kill yourself,” observes Ruby. “You think achieving your dreams will solve every problem in your life, but it doesn’t. The problems that were there don’t go away. We’ve learned a lot. This album is more positive than anything we’ve ever done before.”


“‘Got Weird’ was written after a strange date. The whole song can probably be described as; I get the ick with myself whenever I date girls. It might be internalized biphobia, it might be from lack of representation growing up (“no one told me, course I stumbled”) – but regardless, ‘Got Weird’ is about a kiss with a girl on a date following a faux confident arrangement (“I played the man, and you bought it”), and how clearly, following that, I really have got some “shit to figure out”,” explains dodie.
