Montreal/LA’s American Lips makes their debut with Beyond The 7-11, the first release from their debut album Kiss The Void, due out June 16th via Ancient Fashion Records. This new project comes from Death From The Above 1979 drummer Sebastian Grainger as well as singer/guitarist Adrian Popovich and singer/bassist Jessica Bruzzese. They dish out plenty of DFA 1979′s angular dance punk and The Buzzcocks’ rhythmic thrashing rock on this stormy entangling thriller. American Lips even explained that they wanted Beyond The 7-11 to sound as if David Lynch played rhythm guitar in The Buzzcocks. In support of the debut, the band will be setting off for a run of shows including stops at Sled Island and Ottawa Explosion festivals.  Pre-order American Lips’ debut album Kiss The Void, here.

Rochester band Joywave is back with their first new song in over a year, and this time around, we’re in for a dark heady ride. Content is an ominous thudding, inky intoxicating beast of a tune. About a minute into the song’s eerie introspection, Joywave breaks into thrashing ferocity. They’ve melded indietronica with industrial tinged electro rock in heart pumping fashion. Content is like Nine Inch Nails paired with The Shoes or Big Data, with even a sprinkling of Radiohead in its subdued and meditative moments and a sliver of Crystal Castles in its acerbic synths intens. Content is a trip of a tune and just the right kind of danse macabre I adore.
