Spotlight on Aaron Roche with release of powerful new song/video for Bang

August 31, 2017

We bring the spotlight on the powerful new song/video for Bang from Aaron Roche. The song is about having a panic attack and it truly captures the raw emotion along with the heightened senses of a vulnerable moment like that. The song is from his new album,  HaHa HuHu,  a record of his grappling with mental illness over the years of the album’s construction.  Check out the video below:     More about Aaron Roche: HaHa HuHu is the beautiful new album by Brooklyn-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Roche. Released through figureight records, the album acts as an anchor for Roche’s contrasting narratives: a singer-songwriter with an ear for the avant-garde; a contemporary composer who sings American folk music; an instrumentalist who works as a recording engineer. Roche’s musical CV offers some insight into his craft. He performs (guitar) in the touring bands of musicians as diverse as R. Stevie Moore, Lower Dens, Sufjan Stevens and ANOHNI, he has composed music for the American Ballet Theatre, he has played trumpet with his father’s brass ensemble.

August 30, 2017

Florida rockers Lydia Can’t Breathe have just released a new music video for their explosive new track, Adventure Out. The song is off their upcoming record, Tastes New which is set for an October 10th release. Vocalist Kyle Bolduc comments, We are proud to announce the video release for “Adventure Out” the first single off our upcoming album Tastes New. The song was written after a night out with my drummer Josh. It is based on a guy meeting an attractive female while out with his friends. After pursuing her, the two hook-up however the guy moves on quickly and she is left upset thinking about what they could have had. We wanted to write something relatable from both perspectives. As an example of how love can be cruel and one sided at times. This song is ultimately about the trials of finding love and realizing things are not always what they seem.” Check out the new video here:   You can join the fun as the band is currently on the “Last Get High” tour [Read More]
