Garden Centre's Searching for a Stream is out today

Can you hear what I’m saying, am I losing you? Are we still connected? I can’t see you, the stream’s frozen.   For years, Garden Centre’s Max Levy has been searching for a steady stream. A stream to watch sports on, a stream to glean information from, a stream to wade in. Occasionally, he’ll immerse himself shin-deep in an actual, physical stream: an activity that pulls him in closest to the hum of the universe. Living is a fractured and fractious experience. A stream is a promise of resonance, unifying our innermost being with our outside reality.   This is […]

Nicole Yun "Matter" is out today

Recorded over a number of sessions in Brooklyn and Roanoke, Virginia, Matter is the deft, brutally honest record we have been waiting for Nicole to make. Flanked by collaborators Joe Boyer (Cloud Nothings), Jacob Sloan (The Pains of Being Pure at Heart), Tom Barrett (Overlake) and Duncan Lloyd (Maximo Park), the fuzzed-out textures and muscular drum beats harken back to nineties guitar rock such as Guided by Voices, Sonic Youth and Belly, while speaking to societal injustices with frankness reminiscent of Bikini Kill and Sleater- Kinney. Nicole Yun takes great pains to explain her struggle to grapple with modern society […]

Garden Centre releases "Hall of Fame", another look at the upcoming Searching for a Stream

The song takes place in the mind of a person asleep at their desk, gleefully dreaming about inducting brutalized boxers into their own personal hall of fame."   Searching For A Stream is out May 19th digital and vinyl, available for preorder now.

dust shares Joy (Guilt)

dust, the fast-rising Australian alt-punk outfit, releases another single from the upcoming debut EP et cetera, etc.   Guitar lines wrung out like chains, reverberating like slammed farm gates or trodden steel step frames, ‘Joy ( Guilt )’ rounds out et cetera, etc’s themes of mortality, family and social commentary with a hypnotic look inward that reflects the catharsis of aimless driving. Crossing the garage lustre of heritage act Royal Headache with a charged spoken word delivery from dual-vocalist Gabriel Stove, as elegiac and affecting as Fontaine D.C.’s Grian Chatten or shame’s Charlie Steen.   et cetera, etc is out digitally […]

Veps shares "No. 2", announces Oslo Park vinyl release

After releasing their critically acclaimed debut album Oslo Park digitally in November 2022, Veps are back with the snarling, yet melodic single No. 2, which will be included on the July 21st vinyl release. No. 2 starts off on the softer side, before the Oslo four piece unleash the massive chorus. The track’s quiet/loud dynamics evokes the spirit from the glorious early 1990s, some good ten years before the teenage members of Veps were even born. Today Norway's Veps shares "No. 2", a new track that will be included on the  "Oslo Park" vinyl, which will be in stores July […]

Nicole shares "Heavy Voices", Bandcamp vinyl campaign closing soon

Nicole Yun recently announced sophomore solo effort Matter with the release of single “Lost Keys,” which Brooklyn Vegan called “an unrelenting, dreamy indie pop track commenting on capitalism, money, and want.” Today, she is sharing “Heavy Voices” which is a very personal cut dealing with her experience as a Korean American woman. Nicole says of the video (directed by Patrick Fitzgerald with cinematographer Alex Kent): Heavy Voices is about facing anxieties, fears and intimidations head on, whether they      are real or perceived.  My personal experience in the past few years during the pandemic with these feelings were most heightened in the cross […]
