New Music From The Inbox – Monday Edition! (Aug 30, 2021): Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, T. Evann, Tony Glausi, and more!

Every week, we’re sent dozens if not hundreds of promotional emails from agents, PR firms, and hopeful artists containing the latest releases from around the world. From the biggest superstars to the ambitious self-starters we comb through it all to highlight to you what we’ve been digging, the tunes that caught our eye, and the recommended selections that make the notifications worth it. This is New Music From The Inbox!

Artist: Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes

Song: “Go Get A Tattoo” ft. Lynks

Album/EP: Sticky

Dirty snarling bass and vocals in this spitting alt-punk grease pit sound right at home on new FC&TR album Sticky. Frantic and driving rhythm on the backline generate a thumping pace for the flowing vocals and blown-out guitars to keep up with.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: T. Evann

Song: “Falling by the Wayside”

Album/EP: Pocus

Calm and expansionary indie flow reigns supreme in T. Evann’s “Falling by the Wayside”. Dreamy vocals, sinuous nearly to the point of strung out melodic guitar, and a hazy, subtly reverberating production style bring out a relaxing and enveloping tone throughout the track.

Artist: Tony Glausi

Song: “I Could Fall in Love” feat. Charlemagne the Goddess

Album/EP: EVERYTHING AT ONCE

Jazzy and bouncing R&B with a sincere back-and-forth between Glausi and featured Charlemagne the Goddess, “I Could Fall in Love” plays out like a silver screen meet-cute. Ever-so-subtle muted trumpet runs, soft background harmonies, and a constant key feature elicit some extra organic expression.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: DJ Tweak

Song: “Partner In Crime”

Album/EP: Single

Exhilarating and shifting EDM with a particularly catchy melodic through-line across drops and sonic flashpoints, “Partner In Crime” is a perpetually head-bopping tune.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: Japanese Breakfast

Song: “Glider”

Album/EP: Sable Original Video Game Soundtrack

Dreamy and crystalline bedroom pop characteristic of Japanese Breakfast’s previous body of work, “Glider” is an equally accessible and ethereal entry. Looping and layering vocals and gently shifting melodies keep things interesting and swaddled in an envelope of warmth and wonder.

Mathew Kahansky

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
