Stream: Linkin Park – “Guilty All The Same”

Linkin Park Press 2014
Influential Californian band Linkin Park have recently released a new single, entitled “Guilty All The Same.” It will be the first single off an as-of-yet untitled forthcoming album. The song features an interesting collaboration with famous American rapper Rakim and brings the band’s sound to yet another new trajectory, especially following their previous single, “A Light That Never Comes,” which featured Steve Aoki. Stream “Guilty All The Same” below, and tell us what you think!

Listen: Battle Lines – “Colonies”

Battle Lines

Alternative pop quartet Battle Lines, just unveiled their new track “Colonies” from their upcoming 7″. Following the success of their first release Hearts, they returned to the studio and recorded their next single which you can stream below. The blistered lullaby is replete with wistful paradoxes of emotional and sexual indifference; echoing distaste with the hypnotizing line, “You mean nothing to me” repeated throughout by vocalist Carly Humphries.

The forthcoming limited 7″ features the titular track as well as a new song entitled “Push.” Interestingly enough, the artwork for this release was created by Nick Steinhardt of Touché Amore. Pick up the 7″ via No Sleep Records here. or more information check out their Facebook and catch them at SXSW in Austin, Texas later this month.

Stream: Clouder – “Lost In Reverie”

Clouder Press
Brooklyn-based Clouder are preparing the release of their sophomore album, Sister Raygun, due out March 4th via Fleeting Youth Records. The beginnings of the album were fleshed out by Clouder’s rhythm section (Max, Jim, Steve, and Matt) in their Brooklyn practice space and then sent off to lead singer Eric Gilstrap who was living in North Carolina. After months of immersing themselves in writing and recording rough demos back and forth, Clouder rekindled in producer Jeff Berner’s Brooklyn studio and left it ablaze with album in hand. The first single, Lost in Reverie reveals Gilstrap’s adeptness at shifting seamlessly between droning pitches and invigorating yelps and the band’s capability of bolstering their blank-generation-new york-meets-60s-rock swagger propelled by antsy guitars that morph in and out of surf and psychedelic jangles. Just to emphasize the point once more Gilstrap’s vocals are pretty damn phenomenal. Pre-order the album digitally or on cassette here and stream the single below.

Stream: Chiodos – “Ole Fishlips Is Dead Now”

Post-hardcore legends Chiodos have unveiled Ole Fishlips Is Dead Now, the first single off of their highly anticipated album with Craig Owens returning as vocalist, entitled “DEVIL”. Their fourth studio album is set to be released on April 1st. Listen to the track below!

Listen: Fun Home – “Knit Into Place”

Fun Home Press

Emo folk four piece outfit Fun Home from Pittsburgh, PA started by twin sister songwriters Sara and Rose Savage have recently unveiled their second EP titled “Knit Into Place”. Starting out as an acoustic duo, they soon added Daniel Hagendorf on drums and Benjamin Gardner on bass. Their EP for lack of a better cliché “flows nicely”, not too loud and chaotic, but just five tracks consisting of emo-esque instrumentals with vocals that so perfectly supplement lines such as “They wont be satisfied with me / And all I do is become unglued / And the words sink out through my knees”.

Hopefully there will soon be a full-length in the works, because I’m intrigued as to how they could top this. Meanwhile Fun Home wants to drink all of your boxed wine and play in your basement in 2014. Also they were a part of Big Footprints Records’ 4-way split series which is pretty cool. Pick up their EP in cassette form via Broken World Media here, stream it below and download it digitally on Bandcamp. For updates and other fun stuff check them out on Facebook.

Listen: Tan Sister Radio – “Hole You Live In”

Tan Sister Radio Press
SoCal indie rock outfit Tan Sister Radio have released two new singles, Hole You Live In and Baby Blue from their forthcoming full length. They have been recording their new album officially since April, but in actuality have been working on it for the better part of five years; locking themselves in hot rehearsal rooms, headlining garages for the neighbourhood girls, touring dirty floors and shifty stages up and down the west, and wasting hours of digital tape on songs that never saw the light of day. Their new album “Hat Trick” is the best of sessions they recorded in a converted bedroom in La Mesa, CA via Ursa Polaris Records. Pick up the two singles from their Bandcamp on a “Name Your Price” basis here and stream Hole You Live In below. Check out their Facebook for more information and shows.
