Shade - "Combat Rave" Music Video

When I first saw Shade live I was taking a leak after the set when the singer walked in. I said hey what was the fourth song you played? He said “Combat Rave”. I knew that was the tune. This riff is top notch. The whole song and video oozes 90’s. It hits the spot for sure. This is the title track of their debut LP which is set for release May 1st. Stay safe, clean and tuned into Shade for details on the eventual LP Release Party. – Kris Gies

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

   

Peach Tree Rascals share video for new single "Things Won't Go My Way"

These times of isolation have not stopped Peach Tree Rascals from putting out new work, as they've released their new single "Things Won't Go My Way", along with its music video. The song puts into words feelings of self-doubt, the transitions of life and the dangers they present, and how disillusionment can get in the way of aspiration. Its music video channels The Truman Show, with the band acting as characters beaten by misfortune after misfortune, all of which brings them together at the end. Take a look at the video for "Things Won't Go My Way" below. - Will Sisskind
