Austin Lucas Shares Politically-Charged "Already Dead" (premiere)

He says, "Our world is at the edge of a great changing of paradigms, and it comes to each of us to choose where we will stand. I've chosen an inclusive world of beauty and acceptance, the kind of place where we can all dance to our own beat, without fear of the echoing boot heels of authoritarian, fascist bullies. They may seek to terrorize us into submission, but they can't stop joy, they can't stop love. The right ain't got no rhythm, and it falls to us to dance these bastards out of power...

VickiKristinaBarcelona Celebrate Tom Waits on "I Don't Wanna Grow Up" (premiere)

Homi adds, "They are truly geniuses, using one continuous shot for the entire piece. We happened to have a whole bunch of action shots of us dressed in Carnival costumes goofing around from a photoshoot with the great Albie Mitchell, our official photographer, that suited the video perfectly." "It seems like people are ready for some light-hearted silliness. It's also pretty cool to be in company with the Ramones who covered the song," said Radigan. What the trio taps into on this rendition...

Raye Zaragoza's "Fight Like a Girl" Shatters the Idea of What Women Can and Can't Do (premiere)

Produced by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Modest Mouse), "Fight Like a Girl" brings us more of the forward-driving, conscionable indie-folk that Zaragoza has always championed. It's an easily accessible song that lends itself to an everlasting message of resilience and inclusivity, and one that will offer itself as the soundtrack for many movements to come. Zaragoza continues to be a resonant voice for young women with multicultural upbringings. Zaragoza will be hosting StageIt concert...

Whitney Rose Gets Stonesy With "In a Rut" (premiere + interview)

I love how the album ends with the title track. It has just a tiny bit of a departure from the other material. I didn't really know where else to put it. I like that track because it is different. To me, it had a "Love" from the Robin Hood soundtrack vibe. I think when a lot of people hear this record, they'll think I'm departing from country music. The title implied a lot of things: Don't worry, I still identify as a country artist. The song reminds me that you can still do fun things when t...

Alex de Grassi Explores Different Paths with "The Bridge" (premiere)

He continues, "At night, headlights of cars crossing the bridge create a steady rhythm of flickering of light between the uprights of the railing, and that rhythm became the basis for the piece, a steady ostinato over which the long, syncopated notes of the melody unfold slowly. I wanted to convey both that image as well as the perspective of the driver approaching, crossing, and then arriving at the other side. For me, there is a sense of mystery, a little bit of danger, as well as getting lo...

British Alt-Pop Band Polo Cast a Lasting Spell with New Single "Witch Hunt" (premiere)

Between 1644 and 1647, the self-appointed Witchfinder General, Matthew Hopkins, was responsible for the hanging of more people for the crime of witchcraft than in the entire 100 years prior. Hopkins' arrival came at a time when the populations' general anxieties were fuelled by economic uncertainty and the threat of civil war. His success was, in large part, a result of the public demand to vilify a single group for the ills that were befalling large swathes of the English countryside. Women...

The Seshen Are "Faster Than Before" on New Single (premiere)

"'Faster Than Before' represents the continuous search for who I am beyond the constructs I've been conditioned with," she continues. "Swimming in people-pleasing, compromising myself for the sake of others and circumstance has been detrimental to my psyche and I am creating the path through it."At what seems like the end of her path in the video, she finds the figures from her memories and lies down before them. They blindfold her, walk away, and let an incoming ocean tide splash against her,...

El Búho and DJ Raff Celebrate Chilean Social Resistance with "Resiliencia" (premiere)

DJ Raff's work, of course, has been foundational in Chilean hip-hop since the '90s, when Rafael Pérez first started putting together loops and beats with other young artists growing up in what was another politically turbulent time for the nation. Since then, as DJ Raff, he has circled the globe. So has Perkins, whose music career took shape more recently in Mexico and has landed him for the time being in Paris. Kindred spirits in many ways, the two came together for "Resiliencia" in ways that...

Roo Panes Previews New EP 'Pacific' with Two Tracks (premiere)

Speaking on the forthcoming release, Panes says, "The reason I liked the idea of releasing this A- and B-side is because on this EP I've tried quite a lot of new ideas and textures, but also have some songs which are more traditionally me. 'Colour in Your Heart' and 'Pacific' represent this. 'Colour in Your Heart' is a new sound experiment, and whilst being excited to share that as a single, I also wanted 'Pacific' to be there to show the continuity with my other work. Together I think they ...

Lord Buffalo Expand Americana's Horizons via "Dog Head" (premiere)

"This is a song from the new LP, Tohu Wa Bohu, and while the album version begins as a dark, downtempo piano creeper, we'd been doing the song live with an extended intro of bowed guitar and violin. Lord Buffalo songs often come out a little different every night, and we wanted to capture a little of that with this live-in-studio version of 'Dog Head'. 'Dog Head' begins with a drone of bowed guitar and violin and the holds to the low road until the switch gets flipped and fuzzed-out guitar b...
