BLEETH delivers crushing new single "Divulging Souls" by Florencia Franceschetti

Bleeth_2.jpg

The single premiered on 6/8 on Decibel Magazine. The Miami based sludge metal trio announce new album Geomancer.

Miami's sludge/stoner band Bleeth is a well known secret among South Florida denizens. Since their formation in 2014 they have been counted as part of the essential metal bands to see when visiting. Now, Bleeth is back with a new single and the announcement of their first full length album, titled Geomancer, due August 3rd via Anti-Language Records. 

"Divulging Souls" is a massive sounding track, with a pounding rhythm that gives into aggression and back again. Over its 6 minutes, the music flows from heavy riffs reminiscent of the band Sleep, to scorching verses and soaring solos, with touches of stoner and post-metal sprinkled in for good measure.
The rhythm section plays slow, heavy and very steady, allowing for the guitar to expand and explore, to mix styles and genres. In correlation to the guitar are the vocal styles of guitarist Lauren Palma switch from singing to screaming throughout the track, creating some angsty and edgy moments of heavyness interspacing the more melodic verses.  
"Divulging Souls" is for fans of King Woman, Swans, Acid King, and early Black Sabbath.  Additionally, this single is one of the most 420 friendly tracks to come out in Miami in a long time.

"This song for me is like going on a journey exploring different soundscapes, dynamics, and feelings. I think that was the point of it. How far can we push this? How heavy and powerful can we make it but still explore thoughts and expressions? It's easy for me to get lost and entranced when we play this song live. Easy for me to feel it roaring through me."  - Lauren Palma, guitars and vocals.

Miami's Bleeth signs with Anti-Language Records! by Florencia Franceschetti

Bleeth_2.jpg

We are pleased to announce the signing of Bleeth, a heavy rock/sludge trio from Miami.
Anti-Language will be releasing Bleeth's upcoming album Geomancer, due out this summer. 

Bleeth's visceral sound is grounded in a sludgy grime of groovy, psychedelic stoner riffs. The Miami based band formed in late 2014, and is composed by bassist Ryan Rivas, guitarist Lauren Palma, and drummer Juan Londoño. 

The group self-released their debut EP "RE-ANIMATOR" in April 2015 and immediately took off in popularity in the East Coast underground scene.  The band has since done multiple Florida and East Coast tours, and taken the stage with acts such as Youth Code, Weedeater, ASG, Wrong, Destroyer Of Light, Andrew WK, Shroud Eater, Crud, Holly Hunt and many more.

Listen to Bleeth's music below and get ready for the release of Geomancer! 

Vowws shares video for Structure of Love by Florencia Franceschetti

 Structure of love is the third single off Vowws album  Under the World .    "This song is about paranoid love, obsession, idealization and the hopelessness it can bring. We couldn’t truly confront those ideas and do what we needed to do with anyone else around to help. We couldn’t have a hotel room lined up either or think about anything besides what we were doing so we took some shrooms and went for it. It was all pretty surreal, I couldn’t remember much of what happened until we got back home two days later and was able to look at the footage.... I was like wtf... but we went with it and created this sort of psychedelic desert nightmare.”                                                                                                                                                                            - Rizz

VOWWS' UNDER THE WORLD VINYL OUT NOW by Florencia Franceschetti

Vowws_Under The World

Available on Bandcamp and stores across the US
The band recently toured North America in support of the release.
Read the tour diary on Post-punk.com

With the new album Under the World, VOWWS craft a dark pop masterpiece - a cinematic, stylish and menacing statement of intent. Drawing upon influences as diverse as classic western folk, electronica, surf rock, alternative, and film music, the enigmatic duo weave disparate threads of cultural influence together into a tapestry of drama, imagination and surprising warmth.

The album is available on all digital streaming services, and it was released on vinyltoday to celebrate 4/20. You can get it on Bandcamp and in selected record stores around North America, including Waterloo (Austin, Texas), Amoeba (Los Angeles, California), Electric Fetus (Minneapolis), among others. European label Weyrd Son Records will release a two color special edition in May.

Under the World was largely recorded with friend, mentor and engineer Kevin S. McMahon (Swans, Titus Andronicus) at his New Paltz (NY) studio. While the timeless influence of McMahon and his weatherworn studio in a barn are still present, this time around VOWWS took on a more prominent role in producing and mixing the record. Under the World deliberately eschews any obvious Post-Punk and Industrial tropes, instead allowing space for its stylish hooks, direct vocals and rich textures to shine.

It is the first full length release on the band's own label, Anti-Language Records. You can listen to, share and buy the album here.

MEZKO bring us their new single "Come & Go" by Florencia Franceschetti

The single comes with a classy and edgy video, pairing perfectly with the music

Mezko.jpg

Sydney multi-instrumentalists MEZKO unveil their new track and video "Come & Go". The track is the first arrival from the enigmatic duo since their 2017 debut with the Polychronic EP, and is out now on Inertia Music in Australia and Anti Language Records in the US.

The track's mood is captured and translated by director Ellen Hodgson through its visual treatment, on which the pair are joined by another set of strangely familiar figures, culminating in a simple yet stunning celebration of androgyny. The video for the new single is a tribute to MEZKO's love of the early 70s glam era, where David BowieThe New York DollsPatti SmithIggy Pop and more blurred the divide between gender through their music and aesthetic.

 "Come & Go is a song about just getting on with it. It's inspired by the sounds and style of the early 70s - there's no other genre that celebrates sass in the way glam does, and we wanted to feel that attitude in MEZKO." - Kat & Laura

Check out MEZKO's new video "Come & Go"

 

MEZKO are Kat Harley and Laura Bailey. Forged by an insatiable musical connection that is the foundation of MEZKO'S unique sound, the result is a collision of styles that casts one hand backwards at post-punk and krautrock and one hand forward at futurist pop and electronica. 

Their melange of groovy beats, harmonic riffs and hypnotic vocals are anchored by taut, melodic bass lines and expansive synths. This explosion of sounds is combined with thoughtful songwriting and technical prowess, resulting in a mesmerizing experience -
a space controlled by them and for them, yet welcoming anyone in its path.  

A regular fixture across Australian radio stations for their previous singles 'Steady On,' 'Trust' and 'Everyone', MEZKO have grown a diverse, energetic fan base through memorable live shows alongside King Gizzard & the Lizard WizardEmma LouiseMosquito CoastRunning TouchMiami HorrorWorld Champion and Gold Class. They’ve also played VolumesBlurst of TimesPurple Sneakers x VividGaytimesSecret GardenBad Friday,  and Perth’s Disconnect Festival. Ahead of their national tour dates this summer, which will see MEZKO perform  'Come & Go' and a slew of other new material live, the duo are traversing Australia this April in support of Crooked Colours
