New Music – Sober In A Forest Fire

“You are fearless, you defy death” describes the first moments spent with Wednesday on their 2021 release, Twin Plagues.

New Music – The Anti-Album

Always well known for bordering on the obtuse and indirect for hip-hop, Injury Reserve was one of the genre’s most exciting underdogs of a three-man weave that trades in the sonic cityscapes for twisted deserts of sound.
