As Weird As We Can — A Q+A With The Digitized Distortion Junkies of feeble little horse

Photo provided by artist Feeble little horse are a quartet that filters compact pop music through layers of fuzz and electronic sound effects. Their April debut EP, modern tourism, contained five nuggets of bummed out bedroom fare, while their upcoming full-length album, Hayday (due out 10/22 on Julia's War Recordings), raises the group's sound to … Continue reading As Weird As We Can — A Q+A With The Digitized Distortion Junkies of feeble little horse

Daily Yinz – Dikon – Almost Blues

Matt Dickun is a Pittsburgh composer--currently residing in Thailand--who leads the jazz outfit Dikon. Thommy Knoles: COPY CAT, one of Dikon's recently released EPs, was designed to sound like "Thelonius Monk, only with Bootsy Collins was playing bass and Madlib was the musical director." "Almost Blues" is a strong encapsulation of this ambitious synthesis; it's … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Dikon – Almost Blues

Daily Yinz – Moemaw Naedon & C.Scott – Owls in the Sun (feat. JM the Poet)

Rapper Moemaw Naedon and producer C.Scott's September project, River Rats, emerged from days and nights spent outdoors on the banks of the Allegheny. As is often the case with these artists' work, River Rats is dusty, sample-heavy, and gritty, a real throwback hip-hop record. The meditative, jazzy "Owls in the Sun," which brings Driving While … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Moemaw Naedon & C.Scott – Owls in the Sun (feat. JM the Poet)

Daily Yinz – RITUAL MASS – DESCENT/SEPULCHER

Death metal quartet RITUAL MASS recently released "DESCENT/SEPULCHER" (Steel & Bone Productions) a crushing two-part single. RITUAL MASS prefers to put their band name, album and song titles, and even lyrics in all capital letters, an appropriate move for a band whose music is forceful, heavy, and LOUD. "DESCENT/SEPULCHER" is a punishing, seven-minute track broken … Continue reading Daily Yinz – RITUAL MASS – DESCENT/SEPULCHER

Daily Yinz – Juss Jala – Vapor Rub

Rapper Juss Jala continues her run of ferocious verbal beatdowns with "Vapor Rub," a single released in August. The track positions Juss Jala's flows-- cold and serrated as a steel bread knife, as always--against looped piano, knocking bass, and subdued percussion. The atmosphere is menacing; Jala fills her bars with boasts that double as put-downs … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Juss Jala – Vapor Rub

The Stick Figures – Archeology

Pittsburgh's newly established Floating Mill Records, a label that reissues underrated post-punk albums from decades past, recently re-released a 1981 EP by Tampa, FL's The Stick Figures (the group broke up soon after recording the original), adding a number of previously unheard tracks to the earlier iteration's four-song list. The Stick Figures' music combines off-kilter … Continue reading The Stick Figures – Archeology

Daily Yinz – Lindsay Liebro – Wasted Potential

Lindsay Liebro is a Pittsburgh high school senior whose rousingly defiant single, "Wasted Potential," recently went viral after being confused for a Taylor Swift leak. "Wasted Potential" would stand on its own even without the boosting by confused Swifties; it's an irresistibly catchy power-pop anthem that positions journal-scrawled (or, rather, notes app-typed) yearning overtop a … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Lindsay Liebro – Wasted Potential

Daily Yinz – Fortune Teller – Metal Earth

Fortune Teller, a psych-rock duo consisting of guitarist Giovanni Orsini and drummer J.J. Young, are due to release a new album, Collapse (Steel City Death Club), in October. "Metal Earth," one of two singles released in advance of Collapse, is an apocalyptically sludgy maelstrom of a song that turns the doom knob up to 11. … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Fortune Teller – Metal Earth

Daily Yinz – G Kiddo x Bolt x Baby Swervin – Watchu See In Me

Rappers G Kiddo, Bolt, and Baby Swervin unite for the celebratory "Watchu See In Me." The track sees the emcees trade melodic verses back and forth, delving into their values, goals, and accomplishments. The three work as a unit, each one riffing on the song's central refrain ("Tell me what you see in me/Why you … Continue reading Daily Yinz – G Kiddo x Bolt x Baby Swervin – Watchu See In Me
