Wounds "An Undead Awakening"

Wounds have released the first single, “An Undead Awakening”, from their forthcoming EP. This is the Progressive Death Metal of Rick Mora, Franco Caballero, Nate Burgard, and Neilus McHangusmengus, and the speed and aggression they play with is truly impressive.

Indie rockers Valentin Marx grapple with social norms in new single "Made Up"

Brooklyn indie rock trio Valentin Marx is premiering here a brand new single, titled “Made Up.”. This band has certainly reemerged with an enlightened new perspective on this track, exposing more than just their collaborative talent. “Made Up” offers a bold look at the modern social landscape (and all zombifying apps that come with it), voicing the afflictions of forming relationships in the digital age—and it does it with style. Starting with an airy dream-pop feel, the song’s smooth jangly guitars in the opening are met by lead singer Andrew Kissel’s slacker-ish vocals, forming a tension that is all too fitting for this track’s lyrical context. Being just the first taste of this band’s upcoming releases, “Made Up” gives a relatable, jam-worthy preview of the new material that can be expected in the new year. Check out Valentin Marx’s newest single below and stream their earlier music on Bandcamp.

New Orion Sun Mixtape Available for Streaming

Versatile musician, producer, singer Tiffany Majette, a.k.a. Orion Sun, recently shared a side-long sonic quilt, entitled “Test:Experimental Tape”. Fusing familiar hip-hop fragments from such staples as Redman’s “Can’t Wait,” A Tribe Called Quest’s “1nce Again,” Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing),” the mix weaves unreleased songs, and remixes ones left off next year's forthcoming album, serving as a teaser of sorts. There’s a delicate singer-songwriter/R&B vibe as subtle keys and beats intermingle. That ability to intertwine fabric from the past with ones own originality as both an acknowledgement/tribute and origin story is a difficult needle to thread.

Protovulcan

The futuristic Post-Industrial trio Protovulcan has announced a new double EP, “Life Is Twigs” b/w “Psychic Pinball” which is due out January 25th. The album’s first single is called “The Force Remains The Same”, and is accompanied by a wild Evan Tyler directed video.
