New Entry: S.C.A.B. Return With New Single "Stolen Jag Off Morgan Ave"

New York indie rock/jangle pop/post punk band S.C.A.B. have returned with their new single "Stolen Jag Off Morgan Ave".

From the band: Everyone in Bushwick has had a late night at Our Wicked Lady. We’ve found love, lost gear, and found ourselves in the bathroom with people we never would have guessed. For our first single in a new direction we decided to pay homage to our city and our Daphne blue Fender Jaguar. It was last seen leaning on our van outside OWL on our first gig there 2 years ago. Why it was there unsupervised when all our other gear made it into the van? We will never know. What we do know is how emotional we can get when we lose something of value and maybe we play the blame game until we get over it. All of this is explored in the first song we ever wrote altogether. “Stolen Jag Off Morgan Ave.” is an honest account of materialism vs the “it’s all good” attitude.

Watch: Pictish Trail Airs Music Video For "Natural Successor"

Scottish label owner/producer/singer-songwriter Johnny Lynch aka Pictish Trail has aired the video for his newest single "Natural Successor".

The song "a purgative surrender to nature’s whim driven by a clattering machine drumbeat and rolled in a puddle of filthy dirty fuzz", is out today (October 22) via Lost Map Records/Fire Records. Buy your copy here.

“Going into the bothy, the intention had been to write about connecting with my surroundings, feeling ‘at one’ with the island,” says Johnny. “With ‘Natural Successor’, I quickly discovered it was more about the desire to surrender to nature’s whim. Letting nature take charge. I was imagining all the different natural disasters joining forces, and wreaking havoc on mankind.

“I’d been reading about earthquakes caused by fracking, man’s responsibility for global warming, oil fires, etc. All these Manufactured Disasters. Then, throughout the pandemic, seeing all the horrible stuff that we do to one another, the fault lines we’ve created in society that separate us. Whether it’s a pandemic, or the destructive effects of climate change, there are definitely some days where I think we deserve the revenge the planet is taking upon us.

“Not quite sure that ‘Natural Successor’ eloquently captures all this, mind you... but it was a cathartic experience playing a big dumb riff over and over again. Would recommend.”

Watch: Sea Power Reveal Music Video For "Folly"

UK indie/alt band Sea Power (FKA British Sea Power) have revealed the video for their latest single “Folly”.

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their forthcoming new album 'Everything Was Forever', set to be released on February 11, 2022 via the band’s own label Golden Chariot. Pre-order your copy here.

Speaking about it, guitarist Martin Noble had said: “‘Folly’ is in the tradition of singalong Sea Power apocalyptic anthems—everyone ambling down the road to a multitude of catastrophes. Party on! You might find yourself standing up on the South Downs, up on the fells or the dales, looking down at the world, a world where we seem to avoid the decisions and changes to stop the rot. It’s all folly, but in this case set to some pretty life-affirming music—good stuff underpinning the donut vibes and maybe making you think it’s not all over, not quite, not yet.”

Vocalist/guitarist Neil Hamilton Wilkinson added: “I was thinking of things like greedy overlords playing fart games on the lawns of their great dominions, the enclosure of common lands, bodies, minds, the fantastical gusto of doom and frivolity that feeds the world, me included. I was feeling all on edge, paranoid like the old vampire in Nosferatu when I got into this song.”

SYZYGYX Announces New LP '(Im)mortal', Airs "Light You On Fire"

Washington DC electro/synth artist S Y Z Y G Y X (aka Luna Blanc) has announced the release of her new studio album '(Im)mortal'.

The 15-track record will be out on December 3rd via Cold Transmission, featuring her new single "Light You On Fire". Pre-order your copy here.

From Luna: You can call this album “Immortal” or “I’m mortal”, the idea of the title (Im)mortal is that both ways apply, there is no right or wrong way.

Since I was a kid, I always struggled with the concept of mortality, not as a body, but as a person, as an artist. Once I started studying the lives of long gone artists I realized they were still alive, through their art. I believe art transcends human life.

This album touches that, and many emotions that I’ve felt throughout the past year (and really, ever in my human life). This is me, uncensored. Me sad, me happy, me angry, me in love, me losing hope, me gaining hope, the many parts of me, as a human being, as an artist, every part that hopes to live through my art, and past my human body.
And per usual, I want you to dance with me, dance until you drop, babes!

Check out the album's tracklist and the video for "Light You On Fire" below.

(Im)mortal Tracklist:
01. Im(mortal)
02. Self-Sabotage
03. Unknown Humanoid
04. News Flash
05. Always Talking
06. Deeper
07. Te Siento, Tan Dentro
