Daily Yinz – Gnarled Horse Throat – Melting Mammoth

The sludgy industrial project from Dave 8cylinder and Nick Breinich unveiled its debut, A Futile Stream of Commands (Darkfloor Sound), in October. Over the course of six tracks (and five remixes, including takes from Luke Lund and Napalm Death's Mick Harris), modular synths crawl all over each other like giant centipedes, while a drum machine … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Gnarled Horse Throat – Melting Mammoth

It takes its time to build up from a base of gentle strums, cycling through … Continue reading Daily Yinz – I4A – Fence of Pearls

Daily Yinz – Ozilate – Hazy (feat. Indigo Rae)

New collaboration between producer Ozilate and singer/songwriter Indigo Rae traverses a post-breakup wasteland. Last time we checked in on Indigo Rae, they were singing melancholic ballads over spare ukulele. On "Hazy," the melancholy lingers ("When I breathe in/My bed still smells like you/Baby, now I'm faded/Self medicated"), but its soundtrack takes a different tack.
