Industrial psych-rockers GHXST share digital album "Gloom," play SXSW on 3/13

Brooklyn electronic psych rock duo GHXST dropped their latest digital album “Gloom” at the end of 2018. After playing a select number of hand picked shows around the release date, they are now preparing to showcase the new material at this years SXSW music festival. Lead track “Hunger” immediately establishes a dark, slow-burn foreboding that places emphasis on deep-end howling guitars, many of them sampled. Dreamy female vocals come adorned with a level of unsettling doom that would surely please David Lynch and his fans. Additional tracks like “Ocean is a Desert” and “Vaquero” continue that vibe while adding eery electronic elements reminiscent of Swiss industrial guitar-rock pioneers The Young Gods. “Bad Blood II” introduces a pulsating electronic synth progression, while “Ride” digs down into a bass-tone heavy groove that A Place To Bury Strangers frequently resides. Final track “Heatwaves” incorporates bended slide-guitar along with its apprehensive vocal delivery, dark ambience and snaking progression. GHXST will be performin at an official SXSW showcase on 3/13 at BD Riley's. - Dave Cromwell

Brothertiger celebrates premier of new wave EP at Knitting Factory 02.21

It might seem like the electronica genre is ever pushing forward into the future, but Brothertiger’s focus hones in on the past, specifically the 1980s, for his source of inspiration. That focus is more than just a passing interest, and it’s clear that frontman John Jagos knows his stuff. Listening to his moody new wave vocals and analog synths brings to mind bands like Duran Duran and Tears For Fears, who Jagos proudly claims as an influence (he even covered the entirety of the latter’s album Songs From the Big Chair in 2017). Luckily for Brothertiger, there’s some new tech to take advantage of - and with the help of more refined and modern production, his music showcases those influences with stunning and lush results. Brothertiger will celebrate the release of his new EP A Chain of Islands at the Knitting Factory on February 21st - you can check out its featured single “Shallow” below. - Sunny Betz
