Debut Unclaimed Diamonds EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The quartet of Unclaimed Diamonds recently shared its debut EP The First Five Slabs. A casual, conversational approach exhibits a commanding presence. Succinct songwriting quickly allows impactful, sonic scenes to take shape, riding a wave of noise-injected grit. The album was also engineered by Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee, Dark Thoughts, Yowler) of Wherever Audio.

New Bad Heaven Ltd. LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Strength, the new album from John Galm's (ex-Snowing) Bad Heaven Ltd., has recently arrived. The delicate, intimate narratives wrap the listener in a tranquil, hypnotic state. The soothing, somber dynamic drastically alters when earth-shaking, fuzz-filled force enters the equation. You can catch Bad Heaven Ltd. at The Barbary on Sunday, September 8, as part of a lineup that also includes Very Bad Vibes, Highnoon, and Proper.

Kissed By An Animal share new animated video and song

Animated band cartoons playing along with explosive two-minute power-pop song is a can't-miss combination, and that's just what you get with Kissed By An Animal's latest release “The Good Times Are Here Again” (streaming below). Guitarist/vocalist Dima Drjuchin applies the technique of Rotoscoping to live action footage while adding a steady flow of animated flames, hearts, flowers, skulls, birds, bunnies and more to the Peter Max style psychedelic imagery. Self-directed and drawn over in Adobe Animate, the track is a power-noise-pop treat with crunchy guitar, hard-edge drumming and a fluid bassline. The first hook is reached just 30 seconds in, via a descending progression that goes “sometimes hard to be a friend when the good times are here again.” An even bigger hook arrives with the chorus stating “when no one sees you, no one is holding you back,” that get's turned into “there IS no holding back.” The riff breaks lean towards the heavy and tight Dinosaur Jr variety, adding dramatic accent breaks and a touch of pitch-bended warped guitar tones. Big dreamy background “ahhh's” lift it higher into near dream-gaze territory.

One thing is for sure, these guys deserve more than 82 friends on their Facebook page! Don't miss their live show at the Gutter on August 22.- Dave Cromwell

Fire in the Field delivers a sticky-sweet summer single, plays Jewel Music Venue 08.09

The duality of Boston's Fire in the Field is overwhelming: the sharp contrast between the group's sensual lyrics and killer rock riffs is a recipe for a complete mind takeover. The funk flows abundantly in the band's latest single "Under the Sun" as a groovy drum beat and stylish electric guitar strums flourish. The panache with which the lead vocals switch from a swagger-filled modulation to sensible falsettos recall the glory of Prince's '80s heyday. The band delivers a single gooey with style and confidence, and it is bringing all of that to the Jewel Music Venue in Manchester, NH on August 9th. We are streaming the new single for you below. - Rene Cobar
