CAZADOR invites listeners into its turbulent world with new single "Skeleton Crew," plays Middle East 09.07

Boston's CAZADOR is a vivid symbol of everything that has made progressive rock a nearly religious listening experience for so many: the band uses ear-piercing guitar riffs, break-neck pace changes, ambient sounds, and intense vocals to stimulate all senses, to possess souls. The band's latest single "Skeleton Crew" showcases the group's tendency to mix up its viscera-shaking breakdowns with psychedelic atmospheric stretches that are a nod to progressive rock's genesis bands like Pink Floyd and Yes. The single is part of the band's upcoming record Failure to Thrive, due out July 12th. For progressive rock and metal zealots, the single is a promise of a record that deserves praise, recognition for its commitment to the modernization of the sometimes obscure genre. We are streaming "Skeleton Crew" below in anticipation of the new album and the band's upcoming show at Middle East on September 7th. - Rene Cobar

Music Blesses America at High Sierra Music Festival

Looking for something fun to do this 4th of July weekend? Do you love you some great mountains majesty, music of all shapes and genres, and food? Beverages? Trees? Camping? We recommend the High Sierra Music Festival for some good ol’ fashioned American purity. From Dispatch to Jim James, Del & Dawg to The New Mastersounds, the festival has something for most musical tastes. It’s like Burning Man but peaceful. Local favorites include Midnight North, Royal Jelly Live, Rainbow Girls, More Fatter and Eric Long. The festival runs from July 4th thru 7th in the lovely Quincy, Ca. We hope to see you there and tell us post-fest: which acts were your highlights? Land of the free, home of some killer music. May music bless America! - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

 

 





Futurist's "Olive Mountain" is both transcidental and tangible, release new LP "Omens" 9.27

Animistic metaphors play center stage on “Olive Mountain,” the new single by Brooklyn psych-rock veterans Futurist. Interspersed among syncopated sunny guitar lines and trance inducing background vox, frontman Curtis Peel waxes on about “fountainhead’s through the noose,” “diamond science,” and “separating blood from a stone.” Futurist’s lyrics wouldn’t be out of place in a tarot deck, but they’re not entirely detached from reality; at the core of “Olive Mountain” is a clear yearning for closure, likely of a romantic nature. As such, the band’s ability to bridge the gap between the tangible and the transcendental endows their music with a unique magical realism, and promises more esoteric imagery on their forthcoming sophomore effort, Omens, out September 27th.

New Taiwan Housing Project LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sub - Language Trustees, the new full-length Taiwan Housing Project album, recently arrived via NYC's ever/never records. The band stirs one’s expectations, commanding as fierce vocals spotlight the distorted, jarring, sonic debris. Explosive, experimental instrumentation rips through the terrain as a perpetual buzz lingers in the atmosphere. Scattered noise remains within earshot, yet an intense rhythmic focus pushes the soundscapes forward with a distinct purpose. (Photo by Rich Wexler)
