In the month of June, the post punk band The Foreign Resort will release a new single every week. Their first selection is a mashup cover of Real Life’s Send Me An Angel and Corey Hart’s Sunglasses At Night. The origin of this cover stems back to 2015 when they played a Halloween show and…
Chicago’s Jack Armondo is a truly one-of-a-kind musician, and his Panic Priest project is profound proof. Following the release of 2018’s self-titled debut comes the appropriately titled Second Seduction – a deeply relevant record for the wildly chaotic world in which we find ourselves floundering for sincerity and connection amidst the upheaval of daily routine.
It seems almost ironic that sunny, colorful Miami is home to a musical project like Astari Nite. Quintessentially goth, cemented by their blended Cure-meets-Bowie darkling post-punk sound, their somber tones and poetic lyrical memento mori belie a celebration of the resplendence of this cobwebbed corner of the music scene.
Ist Ist’s debut album Architecture lures you down the wet, monochromatic streets of Manchester, UK. Casual fans of Joy Division and Interpol might feel instantly at home but with each listen, Ist Ist reveals a rich tapestry of color woven into the black, whites, and grey that mingle on the surface of each song
Jim Bob, from Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, has shared a new single appropriately titled ‘2020 WTF’. This song is 30 seconds punk style angst whose lyrics reflect what many of us our thinking.

The debut album, Architecture, is due out on May 1. In advance of the album, the band has released 3 singles – Wolves, You’re Mine and Black.
While everything that Shopping does well sounds better than ever on All or Nothing, the band’s sense of exploration really surfaces on the second side of the record. The intensity of “Lies” sounds more foreboding than anything they have done before while Rachel Aggs’ guitar starts to add some effects to the normally clean, prickly notes. Aggs and Andrew Milk continue to weave vocal lines through each other as Gang of Four once did but the intensity of “Expert Advice” cuts like a diamond
ot to get ahead of myself but…I think I found a candidate for song of the year, and it’s only February! The Berlin band The Wars just premiered a video for their new single for Differences, a track off of their We Are One EP.
