Sematary Forever

Chicago’s Sematary Records released their first ever complication cassette today called Seminary Forever. The label launched last month with a 10 point ambitious and laudable mission statement headed by the goal to give a platform to POC and LGBTQ+ youth to be able to present their art on a wide scale.

The collection contains 11 tracks ranging from noise pop to R&B and features contributions from musicians across the country and local musicians Asbestos Lead Asbestos, Graves, Dog Mom, and Fahrenheit 808.

Post Animal "Tire Eyes" Video

Psych Rock band Post Animal has released a video for their single “Tire Eyes” from their recently album When I Think Of You In A Castle. The Alec Basse and Max Moore directed video was premiered today via Billboard.

You can catch Post Animal at Lollapalooza on August 3rd and at Empty Bottle for an official Lollapalooza After show on August 4th.


Man’s Body

Man’s Body is the trio of Greg Franco, J. Niimi, and Marco Obaya. They release a video for the lead single, “Man’s Body Theme”, from their forthcoming album, Put Your Family In It, which is due out on July 13th. The video was directed by Wes Tabayoyong and shot at Uptown in Westmont.

When I first pressed play on this one I wasn’t sure if it was a joke or just not my thing. However, found myself hooked by the chorus and the sincerity. It is truly refreshing to see body positivity presented in this way. After the third viewing, I simply can’t get this song out of my head.

You can help Man’s Body celebrate the release of their album at Debonair Social Club on July 13th with Two Trouser Betty and Hex Kittens.


Mutant Beat Dance

Mutant Beat Dance is the far reaching collaboration of DJ/Producer Traxx (Melvin Oliphant), Electronic/Found sound producer and molecular biologist Beau Wanzer, and House producer Steve Summer. The trio is preparing to release their epic 25 track self0-titled debut album via Rush Hour Music on July 16th.

The album features a contribution from Tyler Pope and Patrick Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem on “Feed The Enemy” and Gavin Rayna Russom (also of LCD Soundsystem) on "Geometrical Disease”.
