Snuffing Gaslighters :: Kady Rain Cuts Deep With ‘Crooked’

A seemingly inevitable part of human interaction is toxicity… it is not present in all individuals you meet, but the capacity is there, and more than enough people in the world do not hesitate to show the worst of themselves, especially if it benefits them, and regardless of who may be impacted.  It’s clear that Kady Rain is aware of this fact also, as her latest single, the part-pop, part-industrial and highly danceable Crooked focuses squarely on these types of individuals.  Big props to Kady Rain and collaborator/bandmate Morgan Davis for penning such a powerful follow-up to the high energy lead single Got Away… go find this one on your favorite streaming service or digital storefront, or even better, show some direct support by visiting the Bandcamp links above, but whatever you do, don’t sleep on this one.

Primal Scream :: MC Homeless Drops ‘Not A Human’

a1779758727_16

MC Homeless has never been one to shy away from his industrial and hardcore roots, even while affixing himself firmly within the world of hip-hop.  While many of his recently released songs and projects wade in the pools of the aforementioned genres, Not A Human is a deep dive with cement boots into both of those worlds.  On top of jarring and aggressive production (in the best ways possible) from Death WoodsMC Homeless unleashes a torrent of a statement about being more than your average man.  This one is definitely for those tired of hearing the same old, run of the mill hip-hop and rap, and I’m totally on board for seeing him do this live in the near future.  Check out the track, share it around, and drop a buck or two when you download it, if you can.

Organized Noise :: Blank Hellscape Unleashes ‘Demo 2017’

a3032770755_10

Austin-based industrial/noise duo Blank Hellscape decided to close the door on 2017 with a bang.  New Year’s Eve brought the release of Demo 2017, a 6-song set (4 via Bandcamp) that is a statement project if I’ve ever heard one.  If I had to guess, ‘demo’ is being used ironically in this context, because these tracks have body to them, and are quite arresting.  For those into heavy rhythm, boundary pushing and raw emotion in their music, Blank Hellscape is like hitting the jackpot.  Give it a listen, a share, and donate a few bucks if you can, because supporting local and independent music helps us all.
