Fall Apart
by Ellis
(4 plays) | (0 fans)

“This is really just an honest reflection of my struggle with anxiety and how I can’t hide it from the people closest to me. It’s about the feeling the first time someone you admire sees you in your most vulnerable state, about putting in the work to get better but still having moments of weakness,” Siggelkow said in a statement. “My anxiety comes over me like a tidal wave, and it feels like I am spiraling out of control. I am finding better and healthier ways to cope, to talk myself down when I can feel myself starting to fall, but it still happens sometimes even though I wish that it didn’t.” She's playing Barboza on March 29th. http://www.thebarboza.com/e/ratboys-with-ellis-80973785773/

Silver Tongue
by Torres
(4 plays) | (0 fans)

Before she wrote Silver Tongue, Torres' Mackenzie Scott stopped writing music altogether. She found herself "emotionally overloaded" — drained by the global political scene, romantic heartache and a family health scare. And in April of 2018, she was dropped by 4AD. On Twitter, she said the label dropped her for "not being commercially successful enough." "I wish them all the best," she said in a tweet. "Also, fuck the music industry."

“There were a lot of people coming out of the woodwork going: ‘I loved the My Woman record.’ I’m like: ‘Yeah…’” She affects to look supremely unmoved. “‘I’ve made records before.’” Read The Guardian's interview: "Angel Olsen: ‘I don’t really want to be a pop star’" here: https://bit.ly/2UnFa1t

When I Die
by Beirut
(7 plays) | (0 fans)

Multimedia artist Brody Condon directed the intense “When I Die” video. “After the psychosomatic session that inspired the [cover art for Beirut’s recently issued LP, Gallipoli], I ran another session with Zach to guide a new video for ‘When I Die,'” Brody Condon said in a statement. “Something was missing. Later I learned the song was loosely about a fictional suicide cult, so I facilitated a group encounter with the band before their show in Berlin. I was surprised by their willingness to test each other’s boundaries, and spontaneously embody elements of Zach’s inner zone. They told me these intimate processes didn’t feel so differently from what they already do on stage.” Find the video here: https://youtu.be/tAbGfxGBmlQ

Alaska in Winter consists of front man Brandon Bethancourt, who reportedly, "spent a semester in a tiny cabin out in the middle of nowhere Alaska recording music on a laptop during the winter", and which later came to be known as the project, "Alaska in Winter". Bethancourt later went to New Mexico and enlisted the help of fellow musicians, Zach Condon (Beirut), Heather Trost (A Hawk and a Hacksaw), Hari Ziznewski (Rap), Stefanie Lamm, Rosina Roibal, Hilary Bethancourt, and Naila Dixon to help with his later musical compositions.

by Straitjacket Fits
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

Very sad to tell you that Andrew Brough has passed away. Andrew played in the bands the Blue Meanies, The Orange, Straitjacket Fits, and Bike. In September 2008, he was inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame. Chris from Eyelids said "He was a secret weapon to that band offering shimmery beauty to Shayne's more aggressive musical tendencies."
