Orchards cover Crazy Town 17 replies

US nu-metalcore group Orchards have released a cover of the Crazy Town hit "Butterfly", recorded earlier this year. The song, originally written around a sample of a Red Hot Chili Peppers riff, was both Crazy Town's biggest hit and one of their most maligned tracks, with subsequent releases such as follow up album Darkhorse failing to meet the expectations set by the single's success. The new cover by Orchards makes significant changes to the song's structure, bringing in considerably more nu metal elements.
Orchards have recently released a new standalone single called "Misery", while they work on their next album.

Both of course continue to be our best friends and we have all expressed our desire to collaborate in creating more music for Ne ...more

Natalia Lafourcade wants you to chill 19 replies

"Alfonsina y El Mar" is a nursery rhyme hailing Latin America, composed by Ariel Ramirez, written by Félix Luna, and first sang by Mercedes Sosa in 1969 on her album Mujeres Argentinas. As a classic Latin American tune, it only feels natural for Natalia Lafourcade to cover it in the same vein as her latest album Un Canto por Mexico, vol. 1.

Produced by the singer herself, the video clip shows a woman dancing by the sea in black and white. As usual with Natalia, it's pure poetry.

Chris Turner is "TRIGGERED" 35 replies

Chris Turner, of Oceans Ate Alaska and I Am Abomination fame, has released the second single, "Triggered", from his upcoming solo drum album entitled Steezy.

The track features collaboration from Thomas Lang, a revered Austrian drummer who is a founding member of the band stOrk.

Per Chris:
"The goal here was to compose two unique drum parts that interlock perfectly when played together. With this in mind, it was a real challenge to create a piece that could host this kind of drum part without the song feeling imbalanced or overloaded. A lot of work went into the preparation of this one, but it was so awesome doing something different and working with Thomas - hopefully you guys enjoy it too!"

Video made by Guilherme Henriques

Tamás Kátai comments on the new album and track: "Vadak is the tenth album of Thy Catafalque. The state of the world affects all of us, in my case I think it means more escapism. We, like all living creatures are like forest animals chased by death through time and many of these songs are about fleeing, hiding and running either to the past or to the unknown. The record is very colourful, with more guest musicians than ever but also pretty dark and heavy other times. The first song however is a light, nostalgic one about old summers, l ...more

Sputnikmusic launches on TikTok 87 replies

In a widely rumoured but previously unconfirmed turn of events, we can confirm the upcoming launch of a Sputnikmusic Official TikTok channel, to hit the app sometime within the next fortnight.

This follows a mass exodus of users whose niche proclivities and oral ventilation needs have found themselves better served on TikTok's insta-gratinfication dopamine pad ​than on ​the fringes of Sputnik's ever unupdated pizza crust. In particular, this follows the recent reroosting of Sputnik user Lord(e)po)))ts, who has attracted millions of TikTok views and almost three celebrity endorsements for his pithy serrations on the difference between post-garage elevator music and elemental designer trip-hop. High-ups in the Moderator ranks have alleged that a Sputnik debut on the app may bring Deviant back, but scepticism remains rife.

An official statement [this one] underlines that this move has been a long time coming and is in absolutely in no way an attem ...more
