“Nothing Like Us” is the latest song by Revalation, and if you have been impressed by his works in the last few years, you will definitely be into this one. The song also features EmliOMG & Keace, the latter of which is the man responsible for the production.
You may have recently read a story about Eric Garner, a Staten Island man who was harassed by police officers to the point where he was unable to breathe, which lead to his death. Uncommon Nasa wanted to touch on this and he made a song about it called “We Living In These Dark Times”. While the sample in question, King Crimson’s “Epitaph”, is slightly different from how I also used it years ago, it is meant to tell a story to insure its message gets across, and I feel it does. Have a listen.
Toronto’s Alex Metcalfe creates music under the name Waxlimbs, who not only creates it in the studio but brings it out in a live setting, and wants to make use of his presentations in the best way possible. He has released a new single, “Spots” and “Breathing”, both which sound distinct from one another but give a partial taste as to what he is doing and hinting at. If you like the songs and want to download it, it’s available for a limited time. To find out what Waxlimbs has in store in the future, check his official Facebook page.
The only thing I don’t like about this video is that Will Hill is dancing over a graveyard. Maybe in the grand scheme of things, it’s just dirt but there’s a level of respect when someone is at a cemetery. Nonetheless, Atlanta’s Will Hill headed out to the Oakland area and decided that one of his video concepts involved dancing over a graveyard. Maybe there’s a reason for it, and he may talk about it in his new song, “Andele”. The song is from his new album Idle, available as a free download.
If you’re looking to hear something completely new in the punk department, you’ll want to try out this new demo from Houston. They go by the name of Holy Money, and someone said they sound like “a cross between Dystopia and Column Of Heaven.” The band consists of Hughes (drums/noise/vocals), Therani (Bass), and Hirth (guitar/vocals) and while a few of you may think it sounds rough, consider that this is just a demo. I like it as is, very rugged and full of demanded rage.

Her name may be Hanah, but she calls herself H/\N/\H, and she is someone who is looking to make an impression on you so you can be sure of who she is by the end of the year and 2015. She has just released her debut single called “Out Of Touch”, said to be a nice blend of different genres to appeal to many people at the same time. This Brooklyn artist loves her soul music but is also looking to weave herself into other different textures as well. Have a listen and see if her weaving works.
“With Love Comes Rain” may sound on the Kanye West side of things, but Stealth Is Metal wants to show there’s more to it than that and in hip-hop, you definitely have to get more than just that. Stealth Is Metal is the Atlanta MC/producer formerly known as Stealth. In fact, he produced “With Love Comes Rain” himself so I hope he does more tracks in the future.
After he releases his debut song “Thyreoalis” earlier this year, which was described as eclectic (and I’m sure the word “iconic” could’ve been used if it wasn’t used enough already), V E E N is back with a new one called “Babylon”. This producer, originally from London but now based in Sydney, is ready to cause a sensation, even an eclectic sensation, on you and everyone who listens.
If you want to listen to it again, or download it for future use, here it is.
Reuben Sawyer and Morgan Enos gave joined forces again as Hollow Sunshine and will be releasing a new single, their first set of new music since their debut album last year. In what’s being described as “two songs of helplessness, departure and relief”, the two new songs are “Cold Truth” and “I Wandered”. Nostalgium Directive of Seattle are keeping things easy with this one, only 500 copies are being pressed on black vinyl with a picture sleeve. You may pre-order it through their web store or go for it digitally below through Bandcamp.
