CMJ Premiered "Stop/Listen" off of The Gods Themselves' Upcoming Album, 'Pink Noise'

The Gods Themselves have come to rescue you from the musically mundane. No, not those gods, but this human three-piece from Seattle brandishing a fresh bit of woozy wha-wha pedals and shrewd rhythms, and offering zero apologies for their forthright grooviness.

Stop/Listen is the first track off their sophomore album Pink Noise, and mixes brisk drums with the sultry voices of Astra Elane and Dustin Patterson, as Elane wails the distortion pedal in all the right ways, commanding your body to move.

Consequence of Sound Premiered Benjamin Verdoes' "Highly Emotional" off His Upcoming EP, 'The One & The Other'

Seattle songwriter Benjamin Verdoes is always seeking out new experimentations. While fronting Mt. St. Helen’s Vietnam Band, he established himself as a versatile multi-instrumentalist and fervent math-rock enthusiast. In 2014 he branched out even more, drumming for the experimental punk project Iska Dhaaf and releasing his first solo album, Evil Eye, which saw him easing into indie rock.

Not one to be locked into any one idea, he’s now moving into production and beat-making. His first foray comes with his new EP, The One & The Other, out September 18th via Brick Lane Records. Ahead of the release, Verdoes has shared the EP’s opening track “Highly Emotional”.

Tiny Mix Tapes Premiered Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp's "Long Beach Idyll," the First Single Off Their Upcoming Album, 'The Island'

Chris Forsyth and Koen Holtkamp have banded together to create the follow-up to 2012’s Early Astral, and one can only imagine how intense the recording session for this disc must’ve been. Titled The Island, the four-track album boasts dreamy, subdued instrumental work that somehow feels like the aftershock of a two-day studio tsunami: priceless musical instruments shattered over mixing boards in a fit of rage; drunk hangers-on playing with their Euroracks in the hallways; bathtubs full of “psychedelic fruit” and circus performers.

Death & Taxes Has the Premiere of elle le fantôme's Video For "sore"

elle le fantôme is the musical moniker of Brooklynite (by way of TX and TN) Tyler Elizabeth. As one might imagine from her name — which translates to “she the ghost” — she makes moody, minimalist synth-pop to which one might listen while moping around Paris feeling super depressed about a fight you had with your friend and wondering if you even deserve to be around people (not that I have ever done that!).

My Dead Air Drops Airy Single In Advance of 8/14 Release!

Songwriter Dan Ballard didn’t intend for My Dead Air to become more than a side-project. For years he saw his gig as guitarist for pop-rock oufit Until June as his primary project, but things began to slow down with the band after 2012’s_ Young And Foolish_. It was then that he began to rethink My Dead Air as his new focus.

He holed up in his basement studio in Southern California and started working on tracks. During the sessions he worked as both musician and producer, recording the record on his own. Now Ballard’s finally releasing the songs as his first proper solo album, The Thief Who Knows My Name, out August 14th. Ahead of the release, he’s shared a new single called “Reckless With Your Memories”.
