New Release: Rowland S. Howard "Pop Crimes"


Rowland S. Howard "Pop Crimes" is available now:


Always respected by his peers, a scan through the catalogue of Rowland S. Howard sees him allied with the likes of Lydia Lunch, Thurston Moore, Wim Wenders, Barry Adamson, The Gun Club, Nikki Sudden, the Beasts Of Bourbon, the Hungry Ghosts and HTRK. Rowland’s own ensemble, These Immortal Souls, gun their engines in the ill-lit background and the legacy of his work with The Birthday Party scores the skin of successive generations of musicians and fans.

But it’s a history Rowland would gleefully put a match to. With or without it, Rowland S. Howard would make tense, beautiful music, would deliver us his personal vision of the world, would create Pop Crimes.

Dralms To Release "Crushed Pleats" 7"

Vancouver, BC quartet, Dralms, led by songwriter Christopher Smith, have announced their debut 7" single, "Crushed Pleats", will arrive September 2 on Fat Possum in the U.S. (Boompa Canada/Full Time Hobby UK)- pre-order here.  Stream the A-side, "Divisions Of Labour", via Soundcloud.  Dralms is the soundtrack of the quiet hours of a hot summer night, Smith's soft, sultry vocals intertwining thick and heavy bass and synth lines.  Half sweaty, underground club, half dream-like euphoria - Dralms debut single is the afterglow of an epic night on the town.

Dralms is the latest project by Christopher Smith, featuring long time collaborators Shaunn Thomas Watt (Siskiyou), Will Kendrick (Failing)  and Peter Carruthers (Siskiyou).  With Dralms, Smithdeparts from his minimal and subdued musical constructions of his solo album's to a much more complex, heavier sound. Still led by the cloud-soft vocals of Smith the group veer off into cyclical dub rhythms on "Divisions," while the spacey "Crushed Pleats" mixes OK Computer era Radiohead, rising post-rock arrangements and glitched-out electronic tones. Also contributing to the sonic heft of Dralms is producer and electronic artist Andy Dixon (Secret Mommy, Caving), with whom Smith had previously trusted with a remix of Earning Keep's "Pillars and Pyre." the extra clicks, echo and ambiance layered onto the songs by the
producer came late in the game, after being recorded by John Raham of Vancouver's Afterlife Studios

"Dralms spits and curses below the sweet top layer. Below, in the miserable underbelly, sits something built to explode under the weight of its own industrial misery." - Portals Music
