Alien Weaponry share new video
Man, it’s crazy seeing these guys signed to Napalm Records. We’ve caught up with the lads a couple of times in 2015 and 2017, before they were signed on to Napalm earlier this year. Predictably enough, Napalm is a great fit for Alien Weaponry, as proved by their new video for Kai Tangata racking up over 100,000 views already. Their album upcoming album, Tū, is set to be released on 1st June, and is available for pre-order here.
Fletcher Valentine drops Synthetic
Auckland-based Fletcher Valentine has released a beautiful, laid back tune Synthetic, and it sounds anything but. The simple, clean electric guitar provides the backbone of the song, which is built upon with some ambient synths, soft drums, and a smooth, melodic vocal performance.
Skinny Hobo finish off epic video series, drop new album
Do you like riffs? How about riffs? What about some more riffs? If you answered yes to all three of those questions, there’s a hot chance that you’ll like Skinny Hobos, New Zealand’s funnest two-piece out. Jacked Like the Ripper sounds absolutely massive, and even more so during the second half when the tempo drops drastically. Their new video also finishes off an epic, four-part series of videos that have to be seen to be believed. Here’s the link to the first in the series, The Merchant of Tirau, if you’ve got a few spare minutes. It is said that riffs are best felt live, straight from the source, so head on over to UTR to grab tickets to their upcoming tour.
Andre 3000 releases gorgeous new track
If you wanna hear 3 Stacks rapping again, you’re out of luck. But if- like any Outkast fan worth their salt- your willing to hear Andre playing around with new sounds, Me&My (To Bury Your Parents) will not disappoint. Although it may just make you cry.
Jam of the Week
Ever wanted Nine Inch Nails to do a song that dips its toes into the style of Blackstar-era Bowie? Well I wasn’t aware that I did, but here it is, horns and all. How long has Trent been hiding that vibrato?
