You may remember me talking a little about Perfect Pussy last year, the Brooklyn punk band that stole my heart. The bands debut album Say Yes To Love damn near ended up on my year-end list, but fell do to some last minute additions. Well, vocalist Meredith Graves is kicking off her solo career while Perfect Pussy is on a break for the time being. She is releasing her debut material as a split 7″ with Kevin Divine, who I am not familiar with but will be checking out. Meredith has released the first song off of the 7″ titled “Took The Ghost To The Movies” and it is amazing. It’s a post-punk indie beauty loaded with heart and sole and Meredith‘s stunning voice. Check out the track below. Continue reading

And the promotion for Anxiety’s Kiss never ends. Coliseum are a brilliant band and it wasn’t enough that their new album was released today, they had to quickly chase it with another new music video. This video is for their song “Dark Light Of Seduction” which is one of the more chilled out tracks on Anxiety’s Kiss. I really dig the song and video is very dark and very cool. Check it out below.

Pennsylvanian post-metal giants Rosetta have premiered a new track from their forthcoming fifth full-length album and follow-up to their 2013 opus The Anaesthete and last year’s Flies to Flame EP, Quintessential Ephemera, over at Noisey. The new track is titled “Untitled V” and just like everything in the band’s discography, it is vast and multi-faceted. The song soars to interstellar heights and is heavy and punishing when it need to be. Check it out for yourself after the break.
Oakland-based post metal outfit Secrets of the Sky have premiered the official video for their track “Angel in Vines”, which will appear on their forthcoming sophomore full-length, Pathway. The huge, emotive track is set to a strange yet visually stunning clip directed and edited by Andrew Nethery (Melvins, etc). Guitarist Clayton Bartholomew comments on the new video:
“For this video, we went back to director Andrew Nethery, who also did the video for the song ‘Decline’ from our first record, To Sail Black Waters. He did a great job for that video and was an easy guy to work with. For the ‘Angel In Vines’ video, we let him run with his own vision. The song itself relates to the loss of innocence, and he found an interesting analogy to express this same sentiment, while keeping the video abstract and not just giving away the premise of the song. We like that he was able to avoid cliché and the imagery he was able to capture is a definite work of art on its own.”
The video can be viewed after the break.
Pathway will be released on May 19 via Metal Blade. Pre-orders can be found here. The band’s upcoming tour dates can be found after the break as well.
Connecticut-based instrumental progressive metal quartet Earthside have premiered a new track from their forthcoming debut full-length, A Dream in Static, over at Metal Insider. The track is the eight minute behemoth “The Closest I’ve Come”, which cycles between dreamlike atmospherics, intricate melodies and pummeling post-metal sensibilities. The band offered the following comments on the new track:
“‘The Closest I’ve Come’ was a coming of age song for us. It was the first piece of music we wrote for the record, and in a very personal way it represents our journey, both as musicians and people, from adolescence to maturity. This track defined us on a core level and set the bar for our future output.
It also tells our story through an instrumental medium—the feeling of pushing oneself and striving for something greater, but also longing to reach the point of fulfillment—which rarely happens in the creative process!”
Feel free to stream the song after the break.
A Dream in Static is due out later this year. An official release date is still pending.
