Watch: Black Nite Crash Unleash New Single/Video "Wrong"

Seattle garage pop/psych band Black Nite Crash have unleashed the video for their newest single "Wrong".

The song, "a simple and direct comment on the surveillance state and our leadership in general," is taken from the EP 'Colony Drive', set to be released on 4 September through Neon Sigh. Pre-order it here.

The EP commenced recording at the end of 2016 as this current world devolution began in earnest, with lead single "Wrong" a simple yet scathing indictment of the surveillance state and a government that, even then, did not speak for the people, and has only worsened in that regard over the ensuing years.

Plastic Ivy Announces New LP 'Spots of Time', Shares "Too Deep for Tears"

Philadelphia minimal wave/electronic/cold wave artist Plastic Ivy has announced the released of her new album 'Spots of Time'.

The 8-track record will be out on 18 September 2020 via Kraftjerkz. Pre-order your copy here.

Spots of time is as much a lyrical treasure as it is an analog synth dream, brought to life through abundant melodies and arpeggiations, alluring vocals, and a somber emotional tone that courses through the veins of the album.

Plastic Ivy’s influences are wide ranging; sonically, the nod to cold wave, the new romantics, and early indie is clear. Lyrically, the album draws influence from William Wordsworth to historian Timothy Snyder to jazz composer Billy Strayhorn.

Check out the album's tracklist and listen to new single "Too Deep for Tears", below.

Spots of Time Tracklist:
01. Ode: In Advance of Loss
02. Images
03. Too Deep for Tears
