VETO Release New Single “A Pit” from Upcoming Album “16 Colors”

VETO released another single from their upcoming album “16 Colors,” to be released on February 9. Check out the song below:

The band had this to say about the song and the album:

“‘A Pit’ circles the psychological problem around one only having symbols available to understand – experiencing a sort of alienation against the world, as a result. There is a reality that we cannot reach which is outside of our language, our symbols. We can’t get a pure reprieve from the constant stream of news that floods us daily. Could it be that the stream alters to ‘fit’ us? Or do we involuntarily see all impressions through a prism that transforms to our symbols, languages and interpretations?

We began recording ’16 Colors’ in 2014, after taking a year off from a hectic tour schedule that had kept us on the road since 2011. We had to retrieve our drive, and creativity demanded both time and space in order to flourish once more. This saw us parting ways with our record label and business partners, and granted us with a calmer, freer approach to the creative process. We worked alongside producer Mikkel Bolding over a two-year period, influencing our sound by introducing us to the world of analogue recording.”

When We Met’s Latest Music Video for “Ride the Tide”

Portland native duo When We Met released their psychedelic new music video for their latest single “Ride the Tide” off the recently released album “Where Did They Come From.” Check out the video here:

The video was created by cartoonist Magnificent Kaaboom, who brought to life the song’s ocean-themed lyrics with visuals that showcase a unique art style complete with retro animation. Right from the get-go, the video literally grabs you in as a hand pops out from a book and drags the viewer into a wacky world full of surfing cavemen and globetrotting aliens. The duo is backed on this occasion by a robot drummer, which somehow brings it all together. If you’re looking for a dream world to escape to with a new wave, indie rock soundtrack, look no further than When We Met’s latest video “Ride the Tide.”

The video was directed by La Femme and features the band on the road complete with costumes, razor blades, and trippy filters that match the funky bassline and haunting synths. La Femme released their new album “Mystère” worldwide which, continued to leave a huge mark on modern Paris’s cultural landscape, with the two sides of the city – the glamour and the grit – engrained in their music. Returning to a more psychedelic sound and a range of guest vocalists that slice through the starkest of electro beats, “Mystère” sees the French pop connoisseurs celebrating all that’s wonderful about their city.

“Mystère” reached the second place in the French digital charts, 8th place in the overall French charts, and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the French Music Awards 2017. Ever since the release of their debut album “Psycho Tropical Berlin,” that topped the French digital charts and saw the band appear on national television as the Best New Band of the year at the French Music Awards, La Femme’s rise has only gained momentum with fans.

LA River Bend Release Feel Good Love Song

Americana/folk band LA River Bend has released its new single “Summer Wind” off its upcoming EP intended to be a feel-good love song. Check out the song below:

LA River Bend is a four-piece band made up of Nate Weiner (vocals, guitar), Emily Elkin (cello, vocals), Branden Stroup (bass, vocals, guitar) and Jacob Seldes (drums) and have honored traditions of Americana folk by building the walls of their epic soundscapes, embracing the dynamics and ultimately developing an aesthetic unique to their own.

Their latest single “Summer Wind” features three-part harmonies, driving drum beats and catchy Californian melodies built upon intricate guitar embellishments, indie-folk facets and poetically pop melodies. The fast paced, toe-tapping anthemic chorus is highlighted by the band’s approach of exploring the new sounds that could only be found in the So Cal environment.

The band began life as backing Weiner’s solo album, “Ride The Sun,” where the group spent time rehearsing and touring up and down the West Coast. After spending hours recording and mixing tracks for this project, with longtime friend Stroup and the addition of Elkin’s string arrangements, LA River Bend was born. With the introduction of their now signature three-part harmonies and Seldes on percussion, the new and improved band mastered their authentically rustic, yet beautifully atmospheric sound.

“The addition of Seldes to the band is immeasurable, because I think our sound would have been less dimensional without his style of drumming,” Weiner said.

LA River Bend’s upcoming EP entitled “Run These Hills” is a collection of relaxing, vivid, nature themed music, bringing a contemporary and fresh approach to the indie folk genre and was entirely self-recorded by Stroup. Mastered by Grammy award-winning Eric Boulanger (Eric Clapton, Iggy Pop, Green Day), the EP is focused thematically on the symbolism of nature-based imagery and the tracks depict a serene feeling reaching emotional depths.

“The calming influence of nature in LA has been a huge musical inspiration to us,” Weiner said.
