Psych rockers Gateway Drugs release DIY video for "Slumber"

Gateway Drugs' new track "Slumber" stands at an intersection between U2, The Smashing Pumpkins, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, blending shoegaze and fuzzed-out arena rock into a song that could blow out your speakers. But instead of going big with the video, the band chose to film it themselves, using a Handycam to record a day in their lives at Josh Homme's Pink Duck studios. The resulting video comes out more intimate and chaotic than anything a big budget could create; it also provides a look back to when you could just walk outside and fool around with your friends. "Slumber" appears on Gateway Drugs' sophomore LP PSA, which drops on May 8th. Take a look at the video for "Slumber" below. - Will Sisskind

Billy King and the Bad Bad Bad Release New Single "Tiger's Den"

 It’s fair to say most of us are cycling through a lot of moods right now during quarantine; anger, fear, boredom, and occasionally hope. While our anxiety runs rampant and the apocalypse looms, Billy King & the Bad Bad Bad have a new single being released to help everyone process what a shit show the world is right now. 

The band’s upcoming single, “Tiger's Den,” takes the band's signature ‘surf-rock from hell’ style, and gives it a rougher, country-style twist.The track’s greatest strength lies in the narrative it lays out, creating a compelling and interactive story within a song. Through the song’s non-linear lyrical setting and immersive soundscape, the single taps into Billy King’s signature sound.  

 

The winding and anticipatory track begins to build and crest before vocalist, Will Reynolds, launches right into a twangy howl filled with bravado. Reynolds speaks in a cinematic but commanding manner, regailing of past days spent in the Tiger’s Den with an old flame. His voice provides a brief exploration into the story the band is telling, without commandeering the narrative.   

 

 In many ways the song reads as a love ballad, but the band replaces the typical lust and loneliness found in love songs with a sense of urgency. Guitarist, Cameron Wren, and bassist, Mike Sellman, really help set this tone in place. The guitar interludes add in a nice call to action, giving the listener space to take in the music and decide where exactly they would place themselves within the world the song presents them with. 

“Tiger's Den" helps make those weird, frantic trips to the grocery store, a rebellious adventure in a post-apocalyptic spaghetti western. Tie that bandanna around your face and let the music take you over in your search for paper towels and oat milk.

-Avril Carrillo

04.03: LA newcomer Moon Darling to self-release new record "In The Wildwood"

These are uncertain times, and when one has little else to do but stare at their four walls and hope for a better tomorrow, there needs to be some ethereal jams to cut through the thick silence. Fortunately, Moon Darling have come to Los Angeles by way of Seattle with their new record In The Wildwood, which drops on April 3rd.. Dreamy and angular, the songs feature the soaring vocals and guitar mastery of Michael Julian Escobar, who channels Led Zeppelin and Ozzy. The track "Which Way To Go" -- a reworked song from years past -- presents what In The Wildwood has to offer; driving psych rock with hints of disco and rock 'n roll. You'll sway, you'll dance, but overall, while listening to In The Wildwood, you sure won't be bored. Take a listen to "Which Way To Go" now. - Will Sisskind
