Stream Never Ending Game’s Hard-As-Fuck New EP Halo & Wings

The Detroit hardcore band Never Ending Game make some real primally satisfying noise. NEG’s version of hardcore is built around gigantic juggernaut riffs and grunted fuck-you-up vocals. There’s some metal in the band’s sound, especially the early-’90s Biohazard kind of metal. Sometimes the band plays fast, but they’re really in their comfort zone when they’re locking into midtempo dinosaur-stomp riffage, and they do that kind of riffage better than just about anyone.

Givēon – “For Tonight”

The Long Beach R&B singer Givēon has had a fast rise in the last couple of years, thanks to a couple of prominent Drake collaborations and an appearance on Justin Bieber’s chart-topping single “Peaches.” But Givēon’s music is a whole lot more low-key than his resume implies. Givēon released two EPs last year, and Epic recently compiled them into the new album-length release When It’s All Said And Done… Take Time; Stereogum’s Chris DeVille had some nice things to say about it. Today, Givēon follo...
