Whitney Johnson of Verma has a new album coming out via her Matchess solo project. The Rafter will be out June 3 via Monofonus Press, which once again displays her skills at making eerie, often unnerving, music. We've got the premiere of "The Fog" off the album, a haunting instrumental that weaves synths, strings, choral voices to splendid, haunting effect. Stream it below.

Matchess will be on tour in June and will play the Monofonus Northside Showcase which happens at Union Pool on 6/10 with Running, Spray Paint, Dan Melchior, Beech Creeps, and the Kid Millions & Jim Sauter Duo. Tickets for that show are on sale and the flyer is below. All dates are listed below.
