Vaelastrasz's “Glyph of Inspired Hymns” is weird, eerie, and good

For the past year or so, Fairfax's Vaelastrasz has been quietly developing their electronic composition skills. The releases have always seemed promising, and “Glyph of Inspired Hymns” gives a lot of reason to think that Vaelastrasz is starting to really come into their own as an electronic musician. The album art, a black and white photo of an old church, is at once nostalgic and haunting, an aesthetic which meshes well with the antique, dystopian ambiance given off by tracks like “In Memory of the Third” and “Cathedral I”. Interestingly, behind the ambiance often lies post-rock grooves, keeping the tracks from sounding repetitive.

In all, some very good music produced on this album, looking forward to hearing more from Vaelastrasz.

Spare Spells Finally Drop Long Awaited Full Length

Spare Spells first caught our eye at the top of the year, when we nominated them for our Artist of the Month poll. Their haunted synth rock granted them the win, of course, but at the time the only peeks into it we had were from Neon/Noir EP. We longed to hear more and after being teased with the prospect of their first full length The Narrows coming out at an undisclosed time. Finally, Spare Spells adorers have gotten their wish, since The Narrows officially comes out today.

You can stream it below, but stopping by the Waypost tonight to see them perform the tracks live will be even better. Combined with some visuals from Ash Plains and the night becomes elevated in its perfection.

Q&A with DJ/Producer Sweater Beats - currently touring non stop

If you met Antonio Cuna, aka Sweater Beats, without a formal introduction, in all likelihood you wouldn't think he's one of NYC most successful DJ/Producers. Hailing from the Philippines via Maryland, Antonio belongs to the rare breed of musicians who are so hard working and talented that they don't need to dress up (or pose) to impress. In the last decade Sweater Beats has been growing incessantly, with Antonio's music, a contagious mix of dance, synth pop and R'n'B, becoming more and more viral. Notwithstanding the fact that in 2017 he's been touring incessantly, we managed to ask yhim a few questions about his musical project. - Check out his latest single "Alstar" (streaming below) and read the Q&A here.

Guerrilla Toss unveils new video, releases 'GT ULTRA' LP on 06.24 at Sunnyvale

The truly insane bands that last more than a few months are often the ones that deliver creatively satisfying records later in their career, when the mayhem of their youthful and disruptive energy gets moderated by a more grown-up search for... a meaning? Brand new single 'The String Game by Guerrilla Toss (streaming below) seems to suggest precisely this development. The song channels the band's creativity and innate restlessness in more cerebral ways than they got us used to, which could also be seen as a consequence of their move to brainy NYC (where the band relocated last year from New England). The production here is truly spectacular, with fragments of guitar and synths building an arrangement that's at once fun and totally unique. The band just released their new LP 'GT ULTRA' - don't miss the record release party on June 24th at Sunnyvale.
