No Sun to Release 'If Only' LP; "Drown in You" Streaming at Impose

Posted on November 9th, 2016

We're so excited to welcome No Sun to the family! We will be releasing their debut album 'If Only' on January 20th on limited edition vinyl, as well as digitally. The first single "Drown in You" is streaming at Impose.

Since their formation just a couple of years ago, Salt Lake City’s No Sun have been quietly crafting loud, confident, and modern shoegaze. Originally a solo project for singer/ guitarist Jordon Strang to experiment with, No Sun has since grown into a nuanced and voluminous four piece.

In the tradition of Swervedriver and Failure, and contemporaries like Nothing and Pity Sex, No Sun’s debut album ‘If Only’ swells with walls of reverb and texture. It’s shoegaze for those who can appreciate the loudest and dreamiest aspects of the genre. Lyrically, the album leans mostly toward introspection and existential doubt, and Jordon's coping with depression, anxiety, and love.

Grave School Release Cock Sparrer Cover for Halloween

Posted on October 31st, 2016

Listen to Grave School's cover of the Cock Sparrer classic "We're Coming Back" at Clrvynt!

"There are a lot of fools in punk rock who try to tough-guy you out of the scene. They'll act like you don't know what you're talking about, like you don't listen to whatever the "right" bands are. Which is why Grave School's cover of Cock Sparrer's "We're Coming Back" is a nice "fuck off" to all that bullshit. The street punk original is reborn via Grave School's attitude, showing that the song is, above all else, catchy as hell and a very sweet kick to the teeth at the same time."

Keep an eye out for a new Grave School EP coming in 2017!

Drowse Premiere "Memory" Music Video At Clrvynt

Posted on October 20th, 2016

Watch the music video for Drowse's "Memory" now streaming at Clrvynt!

"The music trades reverb for bare instrumentals; it's easy to lose yourself in the light acoustic guitar. He's accompanied by Maya Stoner of Sabonis, who adds another beautiful vocal texture. The song is immaculate, illustrating that strides can be made in the genre with the barest of tools."
