Music Mayhem Premieres K-Bust’s New Single “Torn”

MM

Music Mayhem has the exclusive first listen of K-Bust‘s third single release, “Torn”, off the forthcoming March 9th album, Fearless. This new single is one of K-Bust’s darkest songs that was produced for Fearless.

K-Bust says “Torn” is “one of my favorites of the album for the intense emotions it makes me feel every time I listen to it. It’s about the losing of oneself to another. Giving all we have in a relationship and getting nothing in return, leaving us empty handed. Torn talks about reaching a point of no return, when we realize that we’ve been in a toxic and abusive relationship for too long and that is time to put an end to it.That’s what the music, around it, is all about; an explosion of feelings and emotions, coming from a very dark place, from anger and sadness.

Trace Repeat Concert Crap guest blog

“Earlier this year, our Oakland-based Motown soul and funk band Trace Repeat took on the ambitious task of printing our new album “The Oaktown Sound” on CD and 12-inch vinyl. Two master revisions, countless artwork updates, three months of manufacturing time, and $4,000 worth of debt later, we finally had our record ready to sell on yet another form of extinct media. Because let’s face it. We all end up listening on Spotify anyway, right?”

Trace Repeat talks about floppy disks, CDs, vinyl, and our emotional connection to physical music media in their guest blog for Concert Crap. Read more here.

Substream Premieres The Sometimes Island’s “Can’t Move On”

7BFB3918-EE82-4E0F-987A-54AE4D2319E7

The Sometimes Island is premiering a second track, “Can’t Move On” from their upcoming EP exclusively on Substream.  The single is equipped with dreamy harmonies, synth tones, and a bass line perfect for summer nights.  Lyrical content courtesy ofMatt Blankenship Jr., the man behind The Sometimes Island, really shines in this track that tackles the struggle of being between two feuding exes.

“Two very close friends of mine were dating, and when they broke up I was in the middle of it, hearing both sides and feeling very torn. Those sentiments channeled into this song, written from each of their perspectives. The inability to communicate – with battle lines drawn and pride on the line – made me feel a little like a cloud floating over a battlefield. This song was my way of dealing with it, using the music symbolically to put in little silences and finally an explosive, dramatic bridge.”

Keep an eye, and an ear, out for the full EP set to release July 28th.  The Sometimes Island will also be heading out on a West Coast tour later this summer.
