Beat Awfuls is the artistic vision of Boston expat and musical factotum Dave Vicini.

Like his heroes in The Breeders, The Velvet Underground, and Violent Femmes, his songs range from driving, enigmatic rockers to dark, vulnerable laments.

The band showcases their irreverence for genre, combining Japanese shamisen samples and jazzy pianos, with a driving yet evolving rhythm section reminiscent of the avant-pop of Stereolab or Broadcast. This new oddity, “Pripyalab,” ripples with pulsing synths and a haunting arrangement.

Photo Ops- You Must Not Need A Friend At All

Photo Ops, the project of current LA resident Terry Price, announces his new album, Burns Bright, out on Paul Is Dead Records on Aug. 28. You can pre-order it HERE. He has also shared the first single / video, “You Must Not Need A Friend At All.” Price offers some background on the song:

“On the whole record, I was very interested in space, and the contrast being acoustic, natural sounds and instruments, and the analog synth.  There is something very striking about how natural it can still seem – processing the loss of a relationship, from indoors, looking outside, allowing myself to feel the loss and the passing of anger into an honest grief and complaint of what is left.” -Terry Price / Photo Ops

Phyphr- Reaction

Guitarist/producer Phyphr is one of Denver’s most hotly-tipped talents, making waves with his electro-soul stylings and funky, electronic songwriting. Dedicated to inspiring his listeners, the artist has a DIY, self-produced ethos that’s intrinsic to his artistic expression and messaging: for Phyphr, everyone should be empowered to find their passion and make positive change for themselves and the world.

Now, Phyphr releases “Reaction,” a hip-hop-infused electronic cut that stays true to the LP’s central message. In touch with the song’s repeated refrain –“every action causes a reaction” – the song elicits a perpetual call-and-response, both sonically and thematically. The track complements its lyrics with production elements that subside just to give way to new ones, asking the listener to think for themselves: “Will you cause a reaction?”

RIOT- Meditate

 

RIOT returns to Gud Vibrations with their latest single “Meditate.” 

 

RIOT is an Israeli-born, LA-based duo with a reputation for concocting high energy bass tracks that run the gamut from thrashing dubstep, hard-hitting left-field bass and a few soft-edged melodic tracks sprinkled in-between. They have become repeat offenders on NGHMTRE and SLANDER‘s Gud Vibrations label with a history that stretches back almost three years across five singles. They are circling back to the imprint with their next offering, “Meditation,” a genre-blurring creation that flits between relaxing vocal narration, bouncy halftime rhythms, roaring jump-up drum & bass, neck-breaking dubstep, while seamlessly switching between each style with effortless ease.

STAR SEED & Nytrix- It’s Just You

STAR SEED and Nytrix release their new single “It’s Just You” on Lost In Dreams Records. 

Experimental pop duo STAR SEED has made a name for themselves in the electronic space from a sound that explores elements of nature, spirituality and the mysteries of the universe. Nytrix is a singer and producer from Los Angeles known for inserting a cyberpunk aesthetic into genres such as electro house, melodic dubstep and future bass. They have both graced the Lost In Dreams catalog numerous times independently, but they are now partnering up for their first-ever collab together. “It’s Just You” is a soul-stirring love ballad built around Nytrix’s signature vocal belts, which rides on the crest of an rocktronic crescendo until it erupts into a suspense-driven stuttering beat replete with choppy drums, fluttering arps, DJ scratching samples and their trademark ethereal modular sounds.
