Vita and the Woolf – FANG SONG

Genre: Electronic, Soul-Pop

Favorite Tracks: “Mary,” “Slipping Hills”

Led by the indomitable and immediately striking Jennifer Pague,  FANG SONG is a string of epic pop ballads that grab the listener and refuse to let go. Despite the band’s overall modern tone, the power in Paug’s voice is reminiscent of early Patti Smith and Grace Slick. There’s absolutely no reason this Philly act couldn’t be the next massive Coachella hit, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t hear about them first, here. [Carter Moon]

dreamcrusher – HACKERS ALL OF THEM HACKERS

Genre: Harsh Noise

Favorite Tracks: “Adore,” “Trapdoor”

Making music that is described as “nihilist queer revolt musik” dreamcrusher really doesn’t care if you’re listening if you’re not part of their revolution. As such, this is some of the harshest and most alienating noise imaginable, but damned if it isn’t some satisfying aural destruction. The intriguing challenge to this LP is how utterly uncompromising it is; leaving one to wonder, can revolution really come about through such a fascist aesthetic? That’s a question best answered subjectively- by listening to the record- which you can do here. [Carter Moon]
