Debut Prom Acid Album Available for Streaming & Download

The duo of Prom Acid just released their debut album. Holy Moldy twists creepy noise-engulfing trance, in a chaotic heady kaleidoscope. Fuzzy, synth-induced grooves and heavier guitar-anchored tracks mingle together, warping the mind. Continuously shifting the ground below one’s feet, a leapfrogging level of experimentation radiates.

   

New Track: "Train To Success" (Feat. Jo Kusy) - Brain Clouds

Dark Web frontman, Sims Hardin, dropped a new single, “Train To Success,” under the moniker Brain Clouds. Guided by acoustic guitar, while featuring backing vocals by Jo Kusy, the song sends a compliment to its subject of interest. Admiring from a distance and hoping for a second chance, there’s a delicate, heartfelt simplicity to the musical message. On Monday, February 19, Dark Web is featured on a lineup at The Sound Hole that also includes another of Hardin's projects, Throbbing ChakraLouie Louie, The Caveman, and Nice Guys.

   

Snakeskin releases fuzzy single, plays The Glove 1.26

Snakeskin started off 2018 with the premiere of “Seize,” a mid-paced fuzz rocker that shows songwriter Shanna Polley embracing collaboration with a full band. It’s still following Polley’s previous path, with sprawling song structures letting her detailed lyricism carve a story, but “Seize” has continued her development from bedroom songwriter to searing rocker. The sizzling guitars and thumping drums build a heavy platform for her voice to stand upon as it gains new emphasis and power. You can catch Snakeskin at The Glove on January 26th alongside Bueno, Milk Dick, and Spowder. – Cameron Carr

   

Garage rockers The Maxims release peculiar video for “Endless Mind”

Three piece garage rock outfit The Maxims made their debut last summer with the release of their eponymous EP, a collection of five songs that showcase their reverence to the retro sound of classic garage rock and soul. Steeped in the sounds of gritty guitars and swirling organs, The Maxims is as brash as it is sly, drifting between foot-stomping blues numbers to cool-headed 60s swagger. Last week, The Maxims released a grainy, peculiar music video for the EP’s first song, “Endless Mind”, which you can watch below. -Charley Ruddell
