Off of their debut album, Forgive Yourself, “Canary” from Publicist UK (terrible band name), possesses the sort of weighty doom and gloom you might expect from a metal act while being just moody and melodic enough to err on the side of post-punk.

NYC-based singer Tei Shi has released a brand new version of her song “Go Slow” off of her latest EP Verde. The collaboration with Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune is a pretty big contrast by comparison but against Tei Shi’s inherently seductive voice it works.
