Daily Yinz – West/Step – Revere

Nathan Whitman's West/Step returns with Peace Material, a nebulous collection of warped electronics and obscured vocals. "Revere" rolls in like an industrial storm cloud, all rippling static and flanged percussion, before ascending heavenward aboard Whitman's layered, impressionistic chants.

Daily Yinz – Sommelier – My Hypocrisy

Eccentric Pittsburgh indie-poppers Sommelier join forces with Andrew Muse, another theatrical area artist, for a remix of their song, "My Hypocrisy."
