Cave Mode Shake release splintering indie single "This Is It"

We were celebrating America on July 4th -- drinking heavily and lamenting the injustices carried out by the nation's rich and powerful, that is -- so we slept a bit on Cave Mode Shake releasing their driving new single "This Is It". But now we share this indie jam with you; these five rockin' boys go ham on this track which sounds like an homage to LCD Soundsystem's latest work, what with the reverb on Joe Gladstone's vocals and Dennis Pickett and Ben Merlotti going absolutely bonkers with the guitars. "This Is It" is a good pump up tune for a night out this summer; maybe you're looking in the mirror getting your makeup on or driving up to the club with your friends, and you need a track that's going to speed up your heartbeat a little bit. Cave Mode Shake are happy to deliver. Take a listen to "This Is It" below. - Will Sisskind

   

The Lilacs Announce First New Music in 25 Years!

Power Pop veterans The Lilacs are preparing to release their first new music, The Lilacs Endure, in over 25 years via Pravda Records on August 16th.

The group, fronted by guitarist and vocalist Ken Kunson, got their start in the early ’90’s, but unlike contemporaries like Material Issue, Smashing Pumpkins, Urge Overkill, Fig Dish, Certain Distant Suns, etc., they were mistakenly overlooked in the Capitol Records signing hast.

Along with Kunson, original band member Dave Levinsky (guitar/vocals ) is back, and wrote two of the groups four new songs. These two are joined by John Valley, founding member of Green, on drums and Nashville’s Steve Poulton on bass.

As we prepare for this exciting new album, we find ourselves diving down youtube wormholes and below is a gem from The Lilacs' 1992 full-length debut album, The Lilacs Rise Above The Filth, called “Very Last Time”.

   

New Music Video: "Annihilator" - Night Sins

Portrait in Silver is the forthcoming album from Night Sins, the solo project of Nothing's Kyle Kimball. The release is set to arrive on September 6 via Funeral Party. A video for its lead single, “Annihilator,” is out now. The footage, which was directed by Cassandra Nguyen, captures a couple of goths getting down and possibly finding love/lust in a synth-fueled, bondage-friendly club scenario. Images of the perfect day, enhanced by nicotine and a stroll through a graveyard, are intermittently shuffled, causing you to question the line between fantasy and reality. Night Sins will be holding its record release show on Wednesday, September 4 at Johnny Brenda’s.
