Effin- Take Two
Enter Sceptre- Tormentor
Enter Sceptre – the solo project and brainchild of Cascina Caradonna – share their second single “Tormentor” (following the release of debut single “Majesty” in January 2023). About the release, Cascina says: “I started with the line, ‘you don’t know, where I go, my Tormentor’ as the melody came to me during a stale class one morning. I wrote verse after verse in my notebook, nodding my head every so often to assure the teacher I was in agreement with her lecture. Back at home that night I began crafting the beat, pads and lead line for the instrumental bit. The bulk of the song made me want to dance, and was so upbeat and happy. There had to be more pain. I crafted an intro out of violins, and pretty soon had two completely separate songs on my hands. Transitioning from one section to the other was a complete accident as the delay effect on my vocals was being modulated as the tempo rose. The feedback of it in the silence was so good that I kept it as it was, and enjoyed the journey the song presented itself as.
Goth Babe- Alone In The Mountains
Just in time for Earth Day and the kick off for his US tour, Goth Babe has shared his newest single, “Alone in the Mountains,” out on Mom+Pop Music. Founded by former Tennessean Griff Washburn, Goth Babe is Griff just enjoying himself.

Ghost Love- Mourners Disco
“Mourners Disco was a pandemic album we wrote and produced via distance between 2020 and 2022. My mother passed away in 2019 and for me it was really the only thing I could do to deal with that grief and the isolation because of the pandemic that hit me like two trains coming from different directions. The album is a meditation on grief and despair that seeks to transcend these emotions through music and dancing away the pain. It was also a way for me to honour and remember my mothers life in a way that felt tangible and concrete. We really enjoyed mixing club oriented dark pop songs meant to be celebrated communally with more textural and experimental sonics. The attempt was to bring the listener to a place where it could be appreciated both in a very introverted and extroverted way. I have no idea if we succeeded but that was the intention anyways”. – David Rancourt (Ghost Love)
Monstercat Uncaged’s beloved genre-bending producer Godlands returns today with the drum & bass-meets-trap single, “Charmer.” The record marks the second offering from Godlands’ upcoming EP, and showcases her groundbreaking sound design with a fusion of energetic trap elements, cinematic breaks, and drum & bass stylings driving the second half of the track. Written as her mother was fighting for her life, Godlands’ fraught emotional state shines through the intense percussion and heavy beats. “Charmer” is a testament to Godlands’ musical evolution, and highlights brand new sounds that will be fully showcased on her anticipated EP due this summer.

Under The Radar on the song, “‘Bi Postal’ leans into the garage rock side of the band’s sound, pulling back on the band’s psychedelic and prog instincts for a track that is more lean and propulsive.
