VIOLENCE Releases Human Dust to Fertilize the Impotent Garden

Seven months after the single release "The 16th Descent to Verdant Victory," experimental artist Olin Caprison unveils Human Dust to Fertilize the Impotent Garden—a collection of seven songs blending power dynamics, industrial sonics, and rap composition—as VIOLENCE on New York-based label Purple Tape Pedigree. Blatantly irreverent toward genre conventions, the album ebbs and flows with blast beats, power electronic bursts, and permutations of metal riffplay.

"This music is a struggle," describes the Baltimore-raised Caprison.

"It is a struggle from within this anti-history vacuum, a struggle against the all-embracing, multicultural, ahistorical ecosystem of contemporary music that renders all hierarchies impotent and null."

VIOLENCE performs live on October 5th in support of experimental composer Aïsha Devi’s debut Los Angeles appearance, along with a live ambient set by Los Angeles by-way-of-New-York producer Kelman Duran. Cop tickets here, and stream "Human Dust" off the album below.

Sun Colony releases hypnotic debut EP

Sun Colony have been fortunate enough to acquire one hell of a press release tagline. Just recently, the psych rock-leaning quartet received an unexpected ringing endorsement from none other than Slowdive’s Neil Halsted. Even if Halsted may know a thing or two about a genre he helped pioneer, the question remains: is it really any good? Well, the good news about the Topanga Canyon band’s self-titled EP is that it doesn’t try to reproduce a tired facsimile of Slowdive’s incandescent melancholy. They approach a more sunburned form of post-rock with just a taste of classic Britpop, which is fitting given that their EP was mixed in the U.K. after rising local producer Kyle Mullarky gave their ascending, yet oblique structures a hypnotic aura.

Sun Colony’s debut EP is out now via all streaming platforms. A 12’’ release will follow in the next 1-2 months via their official website.


Morgan Delt talks about gear on Delicious Audio

LA-based Morgan Delt crafts acid-tinged tracks that are meant to be seen with your third eye. His music is blissful and hazy, with his soft vocals stretching across lush, textured instrumentals and sweet melodies. With such an expansive sound, our friends at Delicious Audio were curious about the kind of gear that goes into the making of his music, and Morgan was kind enough to share a bit about the equipment he uses on his latest record, Phase Zero, out on Sub-Pop Records.

Dinner shares video for "Siren Song," plays the Bootleg on 10/01

Dinner, the synth pop project of Danish producer/vocalist Anders Rhedin, is a suave wanderer on the video for his latest single, "Siren Song." The Copenhagen via L.A. transplant gallivants to the night's natural rhythm with a coquettish demeanor, thinking about his pleasure-filled day as he flirts straight into the camera with his boyish, yet penetrating eyes. Rhedin is simply having fun with it, taking cues from the New Romantics who made the boys and girls swoon back in the golden age of MTV. 

"Siren Song" is taken from Dinner's recent second effort, New Work, which is out now via Captured Tracks. Get lost in his dreamy vision when he plays The Bootleg Theatre on October 1st.
