The Effens - Glum/Grunge "Half" Music Video

Toronto glam grungers The Effens have released a new EP “Burn Blush” on Lootbag Records. They also dropped a new music video for the single “Half”. This track has a dark, lazy opening that slowly escalates to the droning yet catchy chorus. This tune is a real 90’s throwback that’s like a creepier Stone Temple Pilots. The emotional intensity grows throughout the song ending with a very powerful chorus. “Burn Blush” EP available at their store. – Kris Gies

As one negotiates through a maze of thoughts. there seems to be a balancing act of the internal and external existence. mewithoutYou also announced that a new full-length album, [Untitled] (Run For Cover Record), is slated for release on October 5. The TLA will also be hosting the band on Wednesday, December 5. (Photo by Hayley Rippy)

Haley Fohr Appears on Roy Montgomery’s New Album

New Zealand’s Roy Montgomery released his latest album, Suffuse, via New York’s Ba Da Bing Records last week. The album’s opening track, “Apparition”, features the chilling, other-worldly, voice of Haley Fohr of Circuit des Yeux.

Haley and Circuit des Yeux will be touring the world this fall, but you can catch her providing a live score to the 1923 silent film Salomé on August 24th at Art Institute of Chicago.
