Copenhagen Psych Fest 2016

Copenhagen Psych Fest 2016

I practically can’t believe it. Here we are yet again, Copenhagen Psych Fest, for the third time and bigger than ever. Sure, there have been all kinds of precursor events like the winter and spring editions and pleasant as they were, nothing quite compares to ‘the real deal’, the ultimate psych gathering in Denmark by far, and possibly even Scandinavia. The rise has been fast-paced; from starting small at Stengade in 2014 with two stages, only to move to Huset-KBH and upgrading both capacity and number of stages, to now finally ...

Music video for new Touché Amoré track "Skyscraper" premieres

Posted by AP on 23/08/16

Burbank, CA melodic ‘wave’ hardcore act Touché Amoré have premiered the official music video for ”Skyscraper”, taken off their upcoming album ”Stage Four”, which comes out via Epitaph Records on September 16th. The record deals with the loss of frontman Jeremy Bolm’s mother to cancer, and of this particular song he offered:

My mother always dreamed of New York City. Whenever I would travel there, she’d demand stories including hyper specific details of the buildings and a new tchotchke of a historic landmark. She had moved from Nebraska to California and was never able to travel east. When she was diagnosed with cancer, I knew I had to make the trip happen. In the spring of 2014, months before she passed, her dream came true. My brother, her and I hit every tourist location imaginable.

Aside from the cancer making her weak, she had severe scoliosis which prevented her from being on her feet too long, so we pushed her all over the city in a wheelchair. It got us to the front of every line as if she were royalty to now everyone, not just me. Her eyes lit up in time square, and her mouth never lost a smile on the subway train. “Skyscraper” is a thank you letter to the city that brought her so much joy at a time when joy felt unattainable. Her ashes were buried in her small hometown in Nebraska I’ll likely never see again, but when I’m in New York City I feel her love.

Muncie Girls make single "Respect" available for "Name Your Price"

Posted by MAK on 23/08/16

Exeter indie-punk trio Muncie Girls have released their single "Respect" as part of a "Name Your Price" download deal with all proceeds raising funds in aid of Refugee Action.

Bass player, Lande Hekt explains:

Refugee Action is a UK-based charity that supports refugees and asylum seekers and campaigns for a fairer asylum system. They do such important work, so check them out!

‘Respect’ is taken from the band’s debut album ‘From Caplan To Belsize’, reviewed by HES here. The single is indicative of the band’s ongoing motivation to deal with social and political issues and acts as their message to any “lad” that has been caught up in the rape culture that’s rife in our current society, particularly on university campuses and online. Fuelled by discontent and anxiety, Muncie Girls eloquently address issues of modern living as a self-aware young adult.

You can purchase "Respect" here.
