Enough Dark Intensity: An Interview with Jimmy Lacy of SiP

By Jason Cabaniss

"I like the idea of “cocktail music.” Something intentionally light and pleasant. I’m always trying to write music that communicates some type of positive mood and when I’m playing, trying to focus my energy there"

Clean is Dirty: An Interview with Flowertown

By Lindsay Oxford

The birth of San Francisco’s Flowertown makes for a good story: longtime Bay Area scene compatriots Karina Gill (Cindy) and Mike Ramos (Tony Jay) compose a song together for an upcoming show in later winter 2020, and the day before they’re slated to play it, the world stopped.

Needles and Pins: Derek Piotr's Journey to the Heart of Britain's Folklands

By Steve Dewhurst

“Yorkshire is not so dissimilar to my home in the Northeast of America,” Derek Piotr tells me from York, the latest stop on his great British journey. “Connecticut is part of New England, so that makes sense.”

Stream: Debby Friday – “Indulge Me”

Deathbomb Arc has announced the arrival of Vancouver’s Debby Friday to their rapidly expanding roster, with a limited cassette re-release of her self-produced breakout BITCHPUNK preceding a planned EP this Autumn.  Not unlike Moor Mother (although vocally more akin to Karen O), the Nigeria-born artist blends rap, noise, punk and electronics to startlingly powerful effect meaning she’ll fit in perfectly alongside fellow experimentalists like clipping., Signor Benedick the Moor and Lana Del Rabies at the LA label.

Having supported both Mykki Blanco and Princess Nokia on tour already, and garnered praise from publications such as Thump and Loud & Quiet, Deathbomb Arc has picked up yet another exciting prospect at the perfect time. As yet untitled, Friday describes her forthcoming EP as “hot noise: full of grief and relief,” and “the sacrificial offering of my old life to the new.”

For a small taste of what might be in store, check out BITCHPUNK standout “Indulge Me” below and pick up one of the last remaining copies of the EP on tape over at the Deathbomb Arc webstore.
