A Deli Premiere: The Waking Point covers Nirvana's "Something In The Way"

We covered Sadie Belica's single "Bad Girl" earlier this summer; now, under her moniker The Waking Point, she's released a cover of Nirvana's "Something in the Way". Faithful to the original, Belica echoes Kurt Cobain's darkness and the urgency of his voice, while adding her own touch to the classic grunge track. Layers of sound and reverb give the song new depth without muddling it, so that Nirvana fans will recognize and accept the cover as a suitable homage to Kurt's vision. Take a listen to "Something in the Way" below. - Will Sisskind

   

Knot releases debut LP on Exploding in Sound on August 28

Brooklyn's Knots raised from the ashes of Boston's Krill, and offer a tense mix of nervy post-punk instrumentation and '90s slacker vocals that perfectly blend two genres that have stood the test of time in the constantly evolving sea of rock'n'roll waves. The single Knot, streaming, is included in their debut, self titled LP out on August 28 on Exploding in Sound. 

   

Theyrgy "Walk Away"

Post-Punk group Theyrgy have released the first single, "Walk Away", from their debut EP "Exit Strategies" via which will be released via their own Dead Sage label on August 21st. On the surface the song focuses on a fictional, sociopathic cannibalistic killer, but it is designed as commentary on our fascination with true crime and the eerie ability to just walk away.

This is the work of John Doyle (I Decline,13 Flowers), John E. Bomher (Yakuza, Iklatus), Michael Fabiano, and Tony Hooper.
