Best friends since the age of 11, the members of Wallows have spent most of their lives obsessing over music together, steadily gathering a musical vocabulary that’s expansive and erratic and wildly eclectic. On their full-lengthdebut Nothing Happens , the L.A.-based trio puts that vocabulary to work and draws from infinite inspirations: scores to Spike Jonze movies, the Beatles’ most rhapsodic digressions, bedroom pop and lo-fi hip-hop and ’70s post-punk. The result is an album that’s endlessly unpredictable, yet… more

Peter Bjorn and John return with their eighth full-length studio album fall 2018 when they release Darker Days on October 19th. Written almost immediately after the release of 2016’s Breakin’ Point, the band decided to strip away the noise and take it back to a simpler time where it was just the three of them, playing music together and releasing albums every other year. The 11 songs on Darker Days reflect this move, showcasing each member’s unique songwriting style while sounding resolutely like a band that has played… more

The Melvins return with the new album Pinkus Abortion Technician, featuring both ongoing Melvins’ bass player Steven McDonald and Butthole Surfers’, bottom ender Jeff Pinkus on bass. “With our upcoming release, we double your bass player with Steven McDonald AND Jeff Pinkus holding down the bottom,” explains Dale Crover. It’s an experiment in the low end of the aural spectrum where we asked ourselves, ‘would it work?’ ‘could it work??’ ‘should it work???’ The answers were yes, yes and YES!” “We’ve never had two bass… more

The third full-length from L.A. band Bad Suns, Mystic Truth gets its title from a piece of art that vocalist Christo Bowman stumbled upon while visiting London’s Tate Modern on tour. Created by Bruce Nauman in 1967, the neon-and-glass piece spells out a possibly paradoxical statement in blue spiraled cursive: “The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths.” “I thought that connected back to the message of the record, which is about finding the extraordinary in very simple things, even though we’re living in… more

BONES is, online, an impenetrably fascinating character. In his homemade, VHS-recorded music videos – shot on his family’s old tape recorder – he’s typically crouched low to the ground, hiding behind long black hair which frames his face like a closed curtain, firing off bars against a brooding beat about the bullshit he sees around him. His sardonic rhymes, haunting production, and grim aesthetic have amassed BONES a cult online following, one that he’s maintained by putting out music and visuals at a manic… more

BLUE OCTOBER, the San Marcos, TX-based band known for shimmering rock songs and haunting lyrics on albums such as 2009’s Billboard Top 15 debut, Approaching Nor mal, 2011’s Billboard Top Ten debut Any Man In America and the Platinum-selling Foiled, makes a triumphant return with Sway (Up/Down Records), the band’s first album in two years. With lush, atmospheric songs such as “Bleed Out,” “Angels In Everything” and “Fear,” and the edgy rocker “Put It In,” the Texas four-piece comes back strong with a revitalized energy… more

It takes only seconds of Band of Skulls' fifth album, Love Is All You Love, to realise that they are no longer the band you thought they were. Carnivorous begins with a fanfare of synths, which lead into a pounding, throbbing dancefloor bassline, an Arabesque lead guitar figure, and electronic percussion patterns – yet underneath it all there's still a blisteringly powerful rock'n'roll band. "Carnivorous opened the window for the thought: What can we do now? What are we capable of?" says bassist and singer Emma… more
