Double Grave (Album Release)
Much like the actual New Year's Day, Double Grave (formerly known as Ego Death)'s new single "New Years Day" is a slow burner. Things can be slow to start after a long New Year's Eve night, but there's an unpredictability that lies ahead. Following a string of EPs, the Minneapolis band are getting ready to release their upcoming full length debut, New Year's Daydream, this Spring with Sad Cactus Records and they've embraced that unpredictability.



"New Years Day" is the record's first single, opening at a crawling pace (like many of us on New Year's Day) with a gloomy slowcore intro provided by guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Warden. Things don't stay sleepy for too long though as the band burst in around the one minute mark with a jangly art-pop riff and a change in perspective as Warden sings "hey look, I'm doing okay".

From there "New Years Day" spirals out as they layer on fuzzy riffs, thick grooving bass lines, and a tight rhythm, eventually pulling itself into a brilliantly distorted collapse of skronky chaos. The tempo contracts as the noise builds, swallowing the song whole as the guitars and Seth Tracy's clamoring drums wrestle to keep everything afloat. It's the perfect blend of eccentric pop hooks and tonal destruction, sounding something like a band being sucked through a black hole mid-performance. Welcome to the new year.

angry pop songs that smell weird
Finesse
Finesse
Finesse is a pop duo inspired by 1982, created for 2017. Members Patrick Donohoe (CLAPS, Principality) and Jeff Cornell (Posh Lost fka Gloss, Pale Spectre) recall memories of the forward-looking, second wave of synth pop. They function as what Simon Reynolds describes as the “Composer-operator and the Singer-lyricist”, or the “Fire-and-Ice” combo. Donohoe’s themes of longing, memory, and aspiration recall Pet Shop Boys, George Michael, and Naked Eyes. Underneath Donohoe’s vocal leaps and bounds are Cornell’s glistening, mirror ball arrangements, combining electronic rigidity with jaunting melodies. This creates a synthetic-soul landscape that is both instantly recognizable and unique to the duo’s chemistry.
