Golden Ones – Nowhere Fast

Heavy OKC shoegazers cursetheknife released their debut EP Thank You For Being Here Pt Ion November 13th. The EP draws from several of the band’s influences: Hum, Nothing, Duster, My Bloody Valentine, Codeine, and Red House Painters for a layered sound that’s undeniably heavy, melodic, and gazey.

CLIFFDIVER РGas City 

Soon after announcing the addition of Bri (Nightingale) as co-singer, CLIFFDIVER released “Gas City”, an uplifting emo anthem championing the importance of supporting your friends. The inclusion of Bri’s soaring vocals and some sultry saxophone make this new single nothing short of perfection.

Lonemoon – Flower
