Ghost Against Ghost, “Unarm”

Woodstock NY’s Ghost Against Ghost have released a track from their forthcoming album still love. The new song is called “Unarm,” and it is a massive, spaced-out blast of streaming riffs, thundering drums, off-kilter chords, and cathartic distorted noise, all couched in the dreamy glow of an ocean of reverb.

The LP will be released on April 14th via Our Silent Canvas in two versions; the first is the more subtle “audiophile” version, dynamic and challenging, while the second is a more standard commercial master in keeping with current industry standards. Listen below and follow Ghost Against Ghost on Twitter @gagdoctrine.

Konshens Performs “Militant” At Kennedy Center

One of last month’s Finals winners, Konshens The MC, often performs with his seven-piece band State of Mind. A recent project of the group is Classically Dope, a show that incorporates with the band a classical ensemble. We wanted to share this great video of them performing Konshens’ winning track “Militant” at Washington DC’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts back on February 8th.

Aloud Release New Single “Agua Mala” To Benefit Flint Water Fund

As the Flint Michigan water crisis stretches into its THIRD YEAR, attention and outrage wane, directed elsewhere, as outrage demands exceed supply. Some dedicated folks remain focused, however, and retrain our collective eye on the prize (the prize here being the most fundamental of basic human needs – potable water). Count among these the United Way, whose Genesee County operation continues to try to raise money in order to help the neglected people of Flint, and socially conscious people like those in one of our current favorite rock and roll bands, Aloud. The band today released a single, “Agua Mala,” to help raise money for the United Way fund, and they will perform tonight at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory at a Flint benefit, snow be damned, along with Cold Blood Club (who also feature on the new single).

A great cause and worthy effort, we’re sure you’ll agree. Luckily for us, Aloud is also a great band who make great songs, and this one is no exception. Seething, dark, and dynamic, “Agua Mala” reflects the frustration of this ongoing crisis in the tone of the music alone.

If you’re able, please spread the word, get the track, go to the show.

Yonas Debuts Video For “Photo”

Yonas and director Mike Squires have teamed up again (truth be told, it seems like they never stop working) for the official video for “Photo.” It’s an instant classic. Not only is the video straight up hilarious, with Yonas making appearances in iconic images from Einstein and Ali to Kim Kardashian and Stranger Things, but the driving and intense single is one of the best we’ve heard from the Bronx rapper.
