:NehruvianDOOM – OM: DOOM is quite possibly my favorite rapper ever, so I was all in for his collaboration with Bishop Nehru before I even listened to this song. Thankfully, it turned out to be as rad as I figured it would be. NehruvianDOOM will release their self titled effort on September 23 via Lex/Noizy Cricket.
:Joanna Gruesome – Jerome (Liar): Here’s an infectious little gem from Joanna Gruesome. They’re quickly becoming one of my favorite pop acts, and I hope a new full length isn’t too far off. The band’s split 12″ with Trust Fund is due out September 23 via HHBTM Records.
:Alex Napping – Weak Knees: If I were to make a list of new Austin bands that I’m really excited about, Alex Napping would land somewhere near the top of it – they just have such an overwhelmingly compelling sound. Trust me when I say you’re going to dig their upcoming album. Look for This Is Not A Bedroom to be released on September 23 via Punctum Records.
:Spray Paint – Rest Versus Rust: Spray Paint are an act that folks in Austin have rightfully been buzzing about for a while now. Just a heads up, they’re not exactly the kind of band you casually listen to, so you either have to fully commit to them or just get the hell out of the way. Clean Blood, Regular Acid will be released on September 23 via Monofonus Press.
:Black Milk – Detroit’s New Dance Show: I love Black Milk. The guy never does anything twice, and I just really appreciate how dedicated he is to constantly shifting his sound. This one-off effort is a catchy thumper, so be sure to crank the volume when you hit play. BM’s next album is tentatively titled If There’s A Hell Below. This song may or may not be on it.
