This October Portland-based band Hustle And Drone will release their new album What An Uproar. Today, the band released the first single 'Stranger' from the forthcoming release. The track premiered at PopMatters and can also be shared at Spotify. About the song, PopMatters says, 'With crystal-clear lyrics, an infectious chorus and production that recalls the Top 40 glory of Howard Jones, Thomas Dolby, and others of their kind, 'Stranger' brings together progressive music with pop in a way that's insulting neither to the heart nor the intellect. We should be more than lucky to have Hustle and Drone around for years to come, making these sophisticated and alluring sounds.'Hustle And Drone's Ryan Neighbors adds, ''Stranger' is the product if toying around with and reversing some mellotron sounds and loops. The big influence on the drums was going for an 80's Phil Collins vibe. The lyrical content eludes to filling your voids with so much noise and busyness. Avoiding the issues that are painful for you until you eventually start to become somebody else. It gets you to a place that you no longer recognize who you are anymore.  You're more or less sharing your body and headspace with this other personality that is starting to take over.'

We all know the beloved classic story written by J. M Barrie that had us all wishing we could never grow up, and reaching to find a way, "second star to the right, and straight on till morning." What if however, there was a different side to the story? A story stripped of all the Disney magic and theatrics and left with a guttural, heartbreaking tale, of love, loss, and the unique idea that even when you don't want to grow up…we all have a way of doing so in the end.

Staged on a brilliantly creative two-setting, split-level scenic design by Dane Laffrey which includes a scene-dividing projected face on a screen on which the most extraordinary, ever-changing, light-flashing and color-changing eyes appear, this inventive retelling of a sharp, subversive fable debates how much our souls are worth when hope is hard to come by beginning when a charming Devil (Evan Jonigkeit, a black-clad, roguishly perfect scene stealer) arrives in the quiet village of Edmonton to bargain for the souls of its residents in exchange for their darkest wishes. But which of the five inhabitants will agree to sell their soul to attain whatever it is they think will make them happiest?

This gorgeous contrast illuminates the artist's 2019 full-length debut, SWEETEST THING, available October 4th.

De La Noche, featuring Ivan Howard of The Rosebuds, Gayngs, Howard Ivans, will release Blue Days, Black Nights on August 23 via Get Loud (pre-order). Today Atwood Magazinepremiered 'Blue,' the latest single from the forthcoming release. About the song Atwood Magazine says, 'De La Noche shows with 'Blue' is that their band is force unlike any other, incorporating old and new in a seamless fashion and ending up on top. And despite the gloom of a broken heart, one can't help but groove to it, slowly losing themselves in the funk-soaked melodies and captivating vocals of Howard. If their upcoming debut album, Blue Days, Black Nights, contains this same level of talent, then fans will be in for a sonic treat.'

To kick off the album announcement, Starcrawler share the heavy, swinging and brutally catchy “Bet My Brains” alongside its manic and murderous music video. “That song came from thinking about the tunnel people in New York and Vegas and the Catacombs in France, and the underground village of people who live in the sewers of the L.A. River,” says de Wilde. “I was fascinated with the fact that there is a whole other world happening right under our feet.” Guitarist and vocalist Henri Cash adds: “Arrow and I hadn't even talked about it yet, but I'd already written something about the same thing—about how these people's eyes adapt to pitch-blackness, and they end up going crazy from never seeing the sunlight.” Check out the song and the Jellyclaw-directed video below!
