From Pitchfork: "It took Eddy Current Suppression Ring just six studio hours to craft a follow up to their sophomore LP, Primary Colours. That's less time than most Americans will spend at work in a day. While that pace created a final product much less polished than the band's previous work, Rush to Relax is also a more accurate, interesting sonic articulation of the band's frenetic frontman, Brendan Suppression."

This Feeling Is Disgusting
by Mourn
(7 plays) | (0 fans)

"The song is really about fear of the future, being anxious about what’s going to happen, not knowing if you’re going to be able to earn a living or not. It’s a really happy song, but one that represents being stressed out. The idea of “I don’t know if I’ll be able to afford an apartment any time soon, but hey, let’s dance and have fun!” That’s the concept behind it, and that’s what I was thinking about while writing the lyrics. I also thought about my parents, and everyone’s parents. They often have high expectations for you, or they want a certain lifestyle for you, and you don’t always agree with that. So you try so hard to do life your own way, but you’re super stressed out and you’re scared, and every now and then you think “Is it worth it?” In the end, I think it’s worth it." --Mourn https://bit.ly/3jLiMs5 https://mournct.bandcamp.com/

Siberian Butterfly
by Bob Mould
(10 plays) | (0 fans)

Of this new single, Mould has shared, "The genesis of 'Siberian Butterfly' spoke to the notion of 'collectors' — people with excessive means who gather the works of creative folk for their ego-driven portfolios. "As I kept writing, the narrative shifted toward themes of change, growth, and freedom. These motifs are central to how we become our true selves. This is how we begin our journey toward our true identities. It’s autobiographical as well. I put myself through some self-hating years as a young gay man — never feeling 'good enough,' not recognizing the positive qualities I had to offer, while inhibiting the development of my gay identity. "I hope for a world where all people can be what they want to be. Life seems shorter every day; maybe this simple song can be of use to people who are struggling to find their true selves." https://bit.ly/35KZy2f
