On the 15th of september, 2017, they released their first LP, El Fin Del Mundo y Antes Del Amanecer -name taken from the manga Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae by the renowned mangaka Inio Asano-.

This release solidifies the identity of the band, striving to be one of the most original band on the chilean scene. 8 tracks -one being a new versión of the song Ponón, from their first EP- and 4 remixes (by Tenzon, Orquesta Pandroginia, RISHO and The Holydrug Couple) make this album an incredible journey through a immense variety of sounds and instruments.

Instant Empire is a rock group from Denver that formed nearly eight years ago. Since then, they have released three EPs and a couple LPs, the most recent of which – 'Last of the Lovers' – will be released this August. The five-piece crafted the album with a concept centering around “the relentless march of time … consumed with finding grace and beauty in life’s tiny moments.”
The band's sophomore album is a beautiful listen, with a fairly dark theme complemented by bright and wonderfully contagious melodies. One of many highlights off the release is “Slow to Reveal”, a track with multiple vocal layers rising in intensity over shimmering guitars and an ’80s-tinged polish. The hook that features the lyrics “whispers and sideways glances” is full of intensity and supremely melodic songwriting, a great demonstration of the band’s talents.
“The initial spark for this song came after spending one too many days in Vegas, and all the heat, booze, gluttony and sickness that comes with that town,” vocalist and lyricist Scotty Saunders explains. “But the song eventually took on a larger rumination on how easily we let addiction and darkness into our lives. Depending on the situations you put yourself into, or the people you surround yourself with … evil can sometimes feel tangible. ‘Slow to Reveal’ explores that idea a bit.”
Based out of San Bernardino, California, Manuel Joseph Walker started his synth-tinged, jangle-pop project Foliage at the age of 16. He released his debut LP 'Truths' on Bandcamp the week before his 17th birthday. The record sold out in less than a week on physical. The recording, songwriting, and production for Foliage is all done by Walker, who is now 19 years old.
Foliage's new record is called 'Silence', and tells the story of an abusive relationship he was in. The song "Dare" is about trying to find an escape, but being held back. "Dare" is the first official single from the release.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
