Subversions of popular songwriting tropes, if done well, can really speak to an artist’s strengths. In the case of Brooklynite new wave bunch My Son the Doctor, their new song skewers a classic pop-punk fallback: the mutually toxic relationship. Its subject? Er… we’ll let the band explain that one. “We genuinely love pop-punk and thought, …

Hologram is the first release from New York Post-Punk legends A Place To Bury Strangers on their own newly formed label, Dedstrange. It is the follow up to their highly regarded fifth album, Pinned, and is a sonic return to A Place To Bury Strangers’ rawest, most unhinged sound. 2021 welcomed a line-up change, with …

New York dark wave duo Xeno & Oaklander have announced their impending full-length release, Vi/deo, due out on 22 October via Dais Records. The album promises to further distil the group’s iconic noir synth-pop and is inspired by ideas of synaesthesia, scent, star worship, and obsolescent technologies. Duo Liz Wendelbo and Sean McBride conceived the …

If the Brooklyn-based psych rockers Evolfo felt pressured to repeat the successes of their 2017 album Last of the Acid Cowboys they certainly didn’t show it. They are back with the hotly anticipated follow up, Site Out of Mind. One might think a band that racked up 6 million plus streams on their debut record …

There is a power and intensity to the new single ‘Disco’ from Brooklyn band Geese that belies their young age and explains why they have been signed to the eminent label Partisan Records. Initial impressions are that this is a band that has been influenced by the Irish wave of post punk bands like The …

BLURRY THE EXPLORER is a quirkily beguiling new art-rock project oozing outta Brooklyn with experimental composer, drummer, and photographer Jeremy Gustin, aka The Ah, at the helm. They’ve just released their second shortform missive, the Brothers Grimm-meets-Broadcast hallucination of “Limited By Jelly”, the video for which you can be wholly intrigued by below. It sees …

Brooklyn based psych rock septet Evolfo have shared their new single ‘Give Me Time’ taken from their sophomore full-length, Site Out Of Mind, to be released 18 June via Royal Potato Family. Expanding on the usual psych rock cocktail of phasers, fuzz, and echo, Evolfo blends in an array of less typical tones and textures such as …

Brooklyn’s A Place To Bury Strangers announce their new EP, Hologram, will be released on 16th July on founding member Oliver Ackermann’s label Dedstrange. Hologram is the anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Pinned and will be capped by a world tour in early 2022. In 2003, A Place To Bury Strangers emerged on the scene out of Ackermann’s psychotropic …

Arriving off the back of their recent Interzone LP, Brooklyn electro post-punk duo The Vacant Lots have shared a remixed song, ‘Departure’, which has been produced by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s Robert Levon Been. A long-standing crowd-favourite, the track is now set for a release for the very first time and is bolstered by the …

‘Mine’ is the debut single from Brooklyn art-punks Gustaf, who have just signed to Royal Mountain Records (US Girls, Wolf Parade, Pottery). It’s a chaotic, aggressive, and a compelling look at those people that have a false sense of entitlement.   Formed in 2018, Gustaf have built a kind of buzz that feels like it …
