AViT- Lines of Death

In the anime Kara no Kyoukai, the show’s main protagonist is able to see “death lines” in people and objects. She identifies their biggest weak spots and attacks them accordingly.

Brook Pridemore- Wore Me Well

Fresh home from a US tour to a Brooklyn that was silenced by the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployed and unable to play live, Brook Pridemore was overcome with a flurry of middle-of-the-night songwriting. More intimate and unflinchingly honest than anything they’d written before, this batch of nascent songs painted snapshots of the most trying moments of the songwriter’s life: an altercation with a teacher (“The Man Who Tried to Kill Me”), the suicide of a childhood friend (“Learned to Play the Drums”), etc. Pridemore imagined this songbook to be a humble demo, a la Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska.

Eli 07
I’m an 18-year-old artist from Berrien Springs, Michigan. When growing up, you could find 6-year-old me sitting next to the radio flipping through channels and listening to everything that I possibly could. When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say “A Superstar”. It wasn’t until late into my junior year of high school that I started making music. It all started when my friends and I were bored and tried to make a song for fun. I realized I really enjoyed doing this and continued with the best dude in all of Berrien Springs. My friend Felipe Navia! I would record a track and then send it to Felipe to edit the vocals. 6 months into making music people were feelin’ the music and we got addicted to just creating. I started posting on TikTok regularly and gained the attention of many different people. In my senior year of high school, I accepted that music was what drove me and what I wanted to do with my life. Just recently I signed a record deal with an great indie label and I’m excited to see what comes next.

I suppose the human condition is the same regardless of where in the world you are.

Patriarchy- The Unself

The 2+ year history of this album, “The Unself,” finally to be released August 26th 2022, I will try to briefly paraphrase:

I fell out of my strong ritualistic routine and into a chaotic semi-relationship full of amazing sex and non-verbal interactions.An Understanding could never be reached. There was no Control. There was nothing but carnality and confusion; it became my obsession, projection, fantasy and failure. It became my Unself.
