Collapsing Scenery Rage Electronically on "New World Borders"

Bi-coastal electro duo Collapsing Scenery attack U.S imperialism aggressively (and grittily) on new single “New World Borders,” channelling longstanding critiques of American foreign policy into a genre-blending political takedown. Enlisting the help of Israeli-Palestinian hip-hop group DAM (whose verses in Arabic and English fit perfectly with the track’s specific criticism of Washington’s ineffectiveness in the Middle East), “New World Borders” is bolstered by a breathless, palpably exacerbated vocal performance over industrial instrumentation. Given that Collapsing Scenery was formed “under a pall of paranoia and disgust,” this particularly acerbic track is but one of the full-throttle condemnations off their recently dropped debut Stress Positions, out now via Metropolitan Indian. Stream it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney

   

Blue Velvet Drapes manage their internal chaos on "Still," play Silverlake Lounge 7/28

On "Still," Blue Velvet Drapes take a moment to sit back and dial down their internal chaos. The San Fernando Valley sextet's latest intends to appease one's anxiety, carrying that loving sentiment over a bittersweet blend of jangling guitars and a buoyant mid-tempo rhythm section. "Hold from break, keep easy," vocalist-lyricist Jessy Juliet Rodríguez sings, bringing out a welcoming warmth through her sweet tone. The band leaves things to open interpretation, better for the listener to develop their own narrative, even if the song's message touches on their personal story—six high school friends who've managed to stay together through troubling times. 

"Still" is featured on Blue Velvet Drapes' recently released EP, Spiral Down. Catch them perform at Silverlake Lounge on July 28. Juan Rodríguez
