LET'S GET (META)PHYSICAL

posted June 25th, 2019

The Silence has descended upon us once again! In the two years-plus since their previous album, Nine Suns, One Morning, their leader Masaki Batoh recorded and released his solo album, Nowhere - but from the first chimes of hazy guitar arpeggios that open Metaphysical Feedback, we are transported right back to the unique rock and roll space that The Silence conjure whenever they plug in and come together.

WET HOT HISS-IAN SUMMER: PURLING HISS GET DIGI WITH IT AND TOUR

posted June 17th, 2019

Put the hot 'n humid back into summer! Deep, drippy and super trippy, Purling Hiss' latest EP, Interstellar Blue, is packed to the brim with four new tunes available exclusively on the digital doo-dad of your choice! The first single, "Useful Information", is a euphoric outpouring of sugared guitar and insta-catchy vocals atop a steadfast n' slithering rhythm section, kaleidoscopically coloring what you hear like a full-on head rush. Mike Polizze's got a penchant for executing perfect "stuck-in-your-head" songs... (read more)
