I’ve been championing the new double album from the djentlemen in Periphery because I truly dig the new music. This band has grown a lot in a short period of time and I think Juggernaut is the best work of their career. The band released both albums yesterday and also released a pretty rad music video for their track “Alpha.” The video features the band playing with virtual reality. It’s pretty cool. Check it out.

I’ve never been very familiar with Nick Drake, but I am very familiar with East Of The Wall, so I am aware that the band is planning to release a split 7″ with Cryptodira.
