Collapsing Scenery Rage Electronically on "New World Borders"

Bi-coastal electro duo Collapsing Scenery attack U.S imperialism aggressively (and grittily) on new single “New World Borders,” channelling longstanding critiques of American foreign policy into a genre-blending political takedown. Enlisting the help of Israeli-Palestinian hip-hop group DAM (whose verses in Arabic and English fit perfectly with the track’s specific criticism of Washington’s ineffectiveness in the Middle East), “New World Borders” is bolstered by a breathless, palpably exacerbated vocal performance over industrial instrumentation. Given that Collapsing Scenery was formed “under a pall of paranoia and disgust,” this particularly acerbic track is but one of the full-throttle condemnations off their recently dropped debut Stress Positions, out now via Metropolitan Indian. Stream it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney

TANSU, The Side Project, and Miranda Joan play The Revolution #40 on 06.29

In Volume #40 of the Revolution, a performance series involving emerging NYC artists curated by The National Sawdust, Harlem-based TANSU, NYC's saxophone quartet The Side Project, and Brooklyn singer and songwriter Miranda Joan will be joining together to share Williamsburg venue's stage on June 29th.

TANSU's story includes studies at The Berklee College of Music, one of the few music schools able to develop well-roundied musical artists. Her voice has an impressive strength and vocal range, propelling her modern and sophisticated soul-pop style. Singer songwriter Miranda Joan, who has collaborated already with The Side Project, offers a more mellow and lush take on soul-pop, with electronic flourishes that don't affect the genre's signature relatability. The Side Project, a sax and voice ensemble dedicated to covers of pop hits and led by the saxophonist and producer Éyal Hai, boasts a roster of past shows at The Brooklyn Bowl and The Art Institute of NYC. They recently released their first album, '#ThisPartySax' under the label Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit Records. Tickets for the June 29th show are on sale now here.

Flash Trading debuts moody single "Similar Devils," plans EP release for year's end

Brooklyn’s Flash Trading is back with a tastefully concocted sonic haze of ambient pop that has a touch of grey to it: the easy-listening vibe of the group's latest single “Similar Devils” seemingly fits for both overcast mornings or foggy evenings, the music evokes a serene mood. “This track was inspired by the lazy monotony of seasonal affective disorder. The feeling of waking up in a drafty room for months on end, your curtains separating you and the world, wanting nothing more than to fall back asleep,” is what the band had to say about the composition. Despite having some elements of house music near the end of the track, “Similar Devils” cruises most of the song, letting its deep bass groove, atmospheric electric guitar phrases, and elegant synthesizer strains carry the listener to the comfortable corners of their mind. Flash Trading once again stimulates the brain, the way a good sophisti-pop band ought to do, letting the listener bask in their mood as they lounge. The band is preparing an EP for release later this year; in the meantime, we are premiering the new single for you below. - Rene Cobar

Wet Dream Song Release

Wet Dream just premiered their song “See Foam Run,” off their upcoming album Future Nostalgic. The dream-pop band manages to peacefully blend the more wistful elements of their music with the more upbeat backing. “See Foam Run” creates a unique and lovely combination of moods. It feels lost but not lonely, guided by an earnest desire to explore the darkness it finds itself in. Listening to the song feels like looking at yourself in the mirror surrounded by shadowy neon lighting. It's a beautiful piece of exploration. 

Future Nostalgic will be out on August 7th.
