Toronto noise punk trio METZ have shared an epic new single, ‘A Boat to Drown In’, ahead of their forthcoming fourth album, ‘Atlas Vending’. At 7 minutes and 37 seconds in length, it’s the band’s longest song to date. Whilst this might seem counter-intuitive as a single release, the song also features some of METZ’s …

Bully will release their new album SUGAREGG worldwide on August 21st through Sub Pop. In celebration, Bully’s Alicia Bognanno has shared a new video for the single “Every Tradition”, which she co-directed remotely with Alan Del Rio Ortiz. Pivoting traditional video making techniques due to the pandemic, Del Rio Ortiz and Bognanno aimed to make something simple …

We were highly impressed by Corridor‘s album ‘Junior’, released late last year and the band has just released a gorgeous video for the track ‘Grand Cheval’ off the album. ‘Grand Cheval’ is a delight – underpinned by a driving bass and steady drums. Sharp crystalline guitars punctuate the song with the dreamy vocals in French …

Frankie Cosmos have announced their fourth studio album, ‘Close It Quietly’. Recording close to home — at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 Studios— grounded the band. ‘Close It Quietly’ is a continual reframing of the known, taking the band’s trademark micro-universe and upending it, spilling outwards into a swirl of referentiality that’s a marked departure from earlier releases, imagining and …

They’ve always been pruveyors of bubblegum garage/grunge rock, with – in the past oddball, funny, and feminist lyrics sprinkled over the top like hundreds and thousands. With their fourth album, and first on legendary label Sub Pop, they might have found that …

Seattle four piece Tacocat have revealed a new video for the third and final pre-release single from their forthcoming new album ‘This mess is a place’, out on the seminal Sub Pop records on May 3rd on all your favourites, well… LP/CD/Digital and Cassette anyway. The Joke of Life is part-Elvis Costello’s Attractions, part Bangles (check …

It took me a bit before I truly could appreciate the magic of Beach House’s music. The Baltimore band’s appeal eluded me their first couple records. What I’d heard off of Teen Dream and then Bloom was nice in a passerby sort of way, but I didn’t know what all the accolades were about. What …

New York duo Mass Gothic release their latest single for Sub Pop, ‘Dark Window,’ a captivating mix of scuzzy squall and crystalline synths, accompanied by a lyric video co-directed by the band and filmmaker Nira Burstein. Mass Gothic’s Jessica Zambri had this to say, “It was late at night, I started dancing around the studio …

So I may have been wrong about Kyle Thomas, aka King Tuff. I know he’s been around for a few years now and that he’s got connections to Ty Segall and that whole crew of prolific garage/punk/pop artists that seem to be readying new albums every couple months. Around 2012 Thomas seemed to  be all …

The last four months has seen a renaissance of post-hardcore comebacks. Earlier in the year, seminal outfit Glassjaw released an incredibly abrasive new album which led to a revisit to elder statesmen within the scene. Hot Snakes, comprising of member of Drive Like Jehu, have become the latest group of formative musicians to grace our …
