Long Island hardcore band Stray From The path have announce their new album "Euthanasia". It will be released via UNFD on 9/9.
Stray has always used our songs as an outlet to speak against oppression", say the members of SFTP. "It's been close to 10 years, and now our third instalment of the Badge And A Bullet series entitled III has the same target. Policing in the United States has always been rooted in racism, hate and violence. Public funding for police departments has skyrocketed since the 1980s. The U.S. now spends more than twice as much on police as it does social welfare programs. Many major cities spend over a third of their budgets on police. Despite the hundreds of billions of federal, state and local money poured into police departments and the corrections industry every year, there is little oversight. The outcomes have been fucking horse shit.

My Boy, the third solo record from New Zealand singer/songwriter Marlon Williams, announces an artist emerging anew. Gone is thesolemn, country-indebted crooner with the velvet voice in his place comes aplayful, shapeshifting creature.

Following the release of his second album, 2018s Make Way ForLove, Williams toured the world, playing major festivals and collaborating withLorde, Yo-Yo Ma and Florence Welch. He also forged a fledgling acting careerwith roles in films The True History of the Kelly Gang and Netflix series SweetTooth, as well as a cameo in Oscar winning film A Star Is Born. My Boy parlaysthis flush of worldly experience into a vivid record as spirited and kinetic asthe unfolding life of its performer. Ive always explored different characterelements in my music, says Williams. And the more I get into acting, the moretricks Im learning about representation and presentation. To get braver andbolder with exploring shifting contexts and new ways of doing things.

As the pandemic paused global travel, Williams found himself athome in New Zealand, reconnecting with family and friends. Soon new demosand lyrical themes emerged: of self-identity and escapism; tribalism and agnarled family tree; and ruminations on the role of masculinity and mateship.

Co-produced with Tom Healy and recorded at Roundhead Studiosin New Zealand, My Boy finds Williams leading a new band through a set ofgenre-hopping tunes: from the cheery sway of My Boy and chugging 80s noirsheen of Thinking Of Nina, to the charging synth of River Rival, and the sultrypop jam Dont Go Back. All this sonic and emotional whiplash is intentional,and ultimately My Boy sees Williams having fun, even while interrogating thebehaviors of himself and those around him.

Roadrunner Records / FRKST band Highly Suspect have announced details of their anxiously awaited fourth full-length album, The Midnight Demon Club, which will arrive on September 9th. The three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated band have also shared two new tracks: Natural Born Killer and Pink Lullabye

Regarding the LP, lead vocalist and guitarist Johnny Stevens a.k.a. Terrible Johnny shared, Life comes at you fast. We are constantly reminded of this, and perhaps no greater occurrence will spark the imagination more than the death of a loved one. In my experience, its during these moments of processing great loss that the mind is completely focused on what ifs as we try and escape what is.The Midnight Demon Club is about becoming the best version of yourself after tragedy, so its a second chance on life with a happier mindset. The Midnight Demon Club is all about having fun and keeping it moving. Because as we all know, this life is way too short.

Stevens also remarked on lead single Natural Born Killer explaining, Im always fighting for my place out here in this world. And there are two mindsets one could have - rollover and mope about the hard shit or just be a motherfucking life beast and smash all your challenges at hand. And if youre really a badass, have fun doing it. Thats the flow. Thats the essence of being a natural born killer.

The Midnight Demon Club finds Highly Suspect at a turning point. Produced by Highly Suspect and WZRD BLD, the 12-track offering teems with truth barely contained in fits of metallic exorcism and hip-hop-induced beat-craft. Stoned musings about a world on the brink of destruction ride over gorgeously uneasy orchestration and vocal transmissions that drip with sadness, longing, rage, and confidence all at once.

Chicago-born composer, producer and arranger Charles Stepney is known to some for his work with Earth, Wind & Fire, Deniece Williams, Ramsey Lewis, Rotary Connection, Minnie Riperton, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Terry Callier, and many more. In the decades since his untimely death in 1976, the presence of his name in liner notes has become a seal of quality for record collectors, while his sound has been sampled extensively by artists such as Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, The Fugees, MF Doom, and Madlib. Step on Step which comes almost 50 years after Stepneys passing is the enigmatic producer's eponymous debut album. It's an album full of creative compositional seedlings originally written, performed, and recorded by Stepney in the basement of his home in Chicago, between the late 1960s and early 1970s, using just primitive drum machines, early-gen Moog synthesizers, pianos, vibraphones, and a few other instrumental accessories.

Magic Man the alter ego of Jackson is transported to various realities, each bound by its own set of rules. This is Jackson at his most vulnerable - exploring what it means to be human and stripped away of any armor. Jackson truly experimented with this record, inspired by 70s rock. Its edgy and dark, its not perfect, its real. This album is an energetic and gritty exploration of toxic love and self-discovery. Jackson is going back and forth trying to attain the approval of his love/music and in turn we see him struggle with himself trying to break free from the cycle and walk away.

BDP's first album--and the only one to include the late DJ Scott La Rock--sounded harder than hell when it came out in 1987. Though the simple beat-box patterns on a few tracks sound dated, most of La Rock's tracks are bluntly effective, especially the AC/DC riff he appropriates on "Dope Beat." And KRS-One still performs most of hisCriminal Mindedrhymes, because his audience knows them word for word: the ultraviolent dancehall of "9mm Goes Bang," the battle cry of "South Bronx" (and its counterpart, the anti-Juice Crew screed of "The Bridge Is Over," with its little Billy Joel homage), the catalog of La Rock's condom collection on "Super-Hoe." KRS bloomed later; here, he just rocked.
