CRAIG CLOUSE, the artist behind the $hit & $hine name, has partnered with Teeth of the Sea’s Mike Bourne to create an enthralling, pummeling visual miasma for his latest single, “Devil’s Backbone”: you can watch it, below. Witness the visual spectacle of a roughly hewn flood of distorted footage, all bathed in a violent and …

J.Zunz, the alias of Lorelle Meets The Obsolete‘s Lorena Quintanilla, released her debut album Silente in 2017, which melded fuzzy-or erstwhile intricate- guitars with textural synths.
