Om at the Met, July 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
Al Cisneros of Om/Sleep/Shrinebuilder quietly released a pair of 7"s on his own Sinai imprint, but now is preparing to go wider with a new effort with Drag City. The solo venture features a pair of tracks on a 10", "Arc Procession"/"Jericho," and is very evocative of the material he has produced with Om, yet leaning heavier on the drone side. Stream the A-Side below alongside his entire solo discography.
In related news, Grails (which features Emil of Om) has also released a new track from their forthcoming Black Tar Prophecies 4,5,6 titled "Self-Hypnosis". Stream that below, and look for them on the road this fall.

Belgium is a hotbed for a certain type of hardcore sound, embodied in bands like Rise & Fall, Amenra and others. Oathbreaker is another band that flirts with that particular oppressive-hardcore sound, yet this Belgian crew also dabbles in epic screamo (ala Envy) on their new LP Eros|Anteros due via Deathwish on August 20. Sure, black metal, post-rock, and punk/metal riffs are all present, but the band's melodicism also adds a different spin, making tracks like "Condor Tongue" that much more interesting.
Stream "Condor Tongue," alongside the band's tour schedule (no dates in the US), below.

No, you are not looking at a Parliament-Funkadelic or Kool Keith promo. In fact, "the Stoned Ranger" you see above is none other than Johnny Cash's right-hand man Chance Martin. Martin is readying the reissue of his originally private-press, limited-to-200-vinyl-copies solo debut, In Search for larger reissue on July 16 via Paradise of Bachelors:
Under the direction of Chance as a guru, his band spent five years in secrecy in the late 1970's recording this fierce, inimitable collection of mythmaking countrydelic tunes in a "bonus room" above his parents' garage in South Nashville... Chance turned off all outside influences, hunkered down and began writing songs on Johnny Cash's D35 Martin, gifted by the Man in Black himself.Look for the release on gatefold vinyl with a photo booklet, as well as CD/digital. Order yours via the label, but make sure and stream the first track to emerge from the release, "Mr. Freedom Man," below. Don't expect a straight ahead country track, a wealth of influences creep into this eccentric 1981 release.

Following the release of their debut LP in 2003, and after two years of extensive touring, guitarist Ian Love parted ways from the New York post-hardcore outfit Rival Schools. Rival Schools added their longtime friend and musician Chris Taynor to the lineup, and following six months of writing and recording in various studios around New York, bits and pieces of that album leaked on the internet, often being referred to as a "lost album."That "lost" album has been Found, and you can stream "Dreamlife Avenger," and check out a picture of the song's original lyric sheet, below.
Vår may share members of Iceage (who will be here soon) and share an overall dark aesthetic, but the two projects are unmistakably distinct. While Iceage's primary MO is in the rich gothic post-punk/punk rock vein, Vår mine darkwave synths to create their poppy gems. The band is preparing to release their new LP, No One Dances Quite Like My Brothers on Sacred Bones on May 15. Stream the new track "The World Fell" below.

Though Dangerous Boys Club features members of Heroin, Antioch Arrow and Get Hustle, don't mistake their latest effort, Pris, for another hardcore-centric entry. The release, which features appearances from names like Joe Preston (Thrones, who recently played Saint Vitus), Mark Burden (Litanic Mask) and Kaetlin Kennedy (Lost Lockets), is more of a synth-based, over-driven slab of darkwave that stretches nine tracks across 23 danceable minutes. Look for the witchy album when it releases via Dais Records on April 9. In the meantime, though, blast the fog, turn the lights down low and slither the day away while you stream the record in full below.
DBC has a few live dates in their future, though nothing set for the NYC area thus far. Check out those live dates, listed below.
