My friend Aaron Coker, who has done work in Reggie & The Full Effect and The Appleseed Cast but is currently focusing his efforts on Sisters Of…, sent me a message the other day that Sisters had released a new track and that I had somehow missed it. Well, of course I got right to it and it’s glorious. The song is almost nine minutes in length and honestly I could listen to another ten minutes. I love this band and all that they do, so if you do nothing else today, check out the rad new track titled “The Angel” below. DO IT! Continue reading

Outrun The Sunlight are a band I discovered a few years ago and I have been closely following them ever since.

The cinematography alone is gorgeous, not to mention how amazing this song is. Check out the video after the jump and be sure to show your support over on the bands IndieGoGo. Continue reading
I clamored over Sisters Of… last year and it was announced earlier this year that the band would be releasing a new album next year, which thoroughly excited me. I love this band. In anticipation of the bands forthcoming effort, titled The Serpent, The Angel And The Adversary, the band is currently streaming a radical new track titled “Annabelle,” which you can hear below. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not, but I just watched the new James Wan-produced film Annabelle. I didn’t hate it. That’s not the point. Check out “Annabelle” after the jump. Continue reading

Remember when I interviewed Brian (bassist/vocalist) of Milk White Throat and he told us that the band were finishing up their new album Death Of Beauty? Well, the band has released the album and you can now stream it in full. It’s really a great album and the guys have totally outdone themselves.

Belgian post-metal outfit Charnia have premiered their forthcoming debut full length, Dageraad, over at CVLT Nation. The record features 35 minutes of enthralling soundscapes and crushing doom that call to mind the most tranquil moments of bands like Mogwai and the intensity of early Isis material. Check it out for yourself over at CVLT Nation now.
Dageraad will be released on September 20th via Consouling Sounds. Pre-orders can be placed here.
It’s difficult to reconcile that Happy Diving has only been a band for a little under a year. With only a four track demo out so far, the criminally unknown East Bay, California band embody a natural propensity for eased songwriting with catchy hooks and melodies that suggest a band in the long term, combining the groove and drive of early Weezer and California X alongside the depressive morose of shoegaze and dream pop into a unique concoction all their own. Today brings the second single, “Sad Planet”, off of the group’s recently announced, upcoming debut LP, Big World, recorded earlier this year with producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Whirr). It’s a track that’s more of the same, in a best way possible. Stream “Sad Planet” along with the first single “Weird Dream” below and pre-order Big World, due October 21st via Father/Daughter Records, here.
The Japanese post-rock titans Mono have announced that they will be releasing two new albums this year, The Last Dawn and Rays of Darkness. Both albums will feature contrasting styles (The Last Dawn is reported to be “lighter” and Rays of Darkness “heavier”) and will both be released on October 24th (Europe), 27th (U.K.), 28th (North America) and November 5th (Japan). The band commented on the upcoming releases:
“When we started in 1999, we set out with a simple mission: from bliss to bludgeon, no matter how long or winding the path may be. After ‘For my parents’, we had finally reached the logical conclusion of that era, it was time to remember where we started and re-think where we were heading!
Less strings? Louder? Quieter? Lighter? Darker? Yes. “The Last Dawn” and “Rays of Darkness” are a pair of new albums. Recorded simultaneously yet conceptually, and creatively disparate, the two act as both opposing and complementary sides to a story. No strangers to narratives, the twin albums explore familiar themes: hope and hopelessness, love and loss, immense joy and unspeakable pain. Those elemental parts of life, and the complicated relationships that we create have, never been more resonant through our music.”
The band have also shared the track “Where We Begin” from The Last Dawn and can be streamed after the break. The band will also be embarking on Asian and European tours in support of the releases. Those dates can be found below along with album pre-order information and artwork and track listings.
Post-rockers Pianos Became The Teeth have recently signed to Epitaph Records where they will release their new album Keep You later this year and the band has released the albums first single “Repine.” I absolutely love this track and, well anything PBTT have ever done.

Instrumental patients Set And Setting will be releasing their debut album A Vivid Memory next week and as a treat to everyone the world over, the band is currently streaming the album in full.

Enjoy the beautiful sounds, son! Continue reading

Past 21 Beyond The Arctic Cell will be released on September 9th via Seventh Rule Recordings. Pre-orders can be placed here.
