Static Diary (Scott Danbom of Centro-matic) shares "UFO's" with PopMatters


"It's an adventure... feeling as ethereal as its name might imply. Unassumingly infectious," says Jonathan Frahm of PopMatters. "UFO's" is taken from the upcoming debut by Static Diary, the new project of Scott Danbom of Centro-matic (out July 27th from Goliad Media Group.) Danbom's former bandmate Will Johnson makes several appearances on the album as well.


Jeanne Vomit-Terror "etches MIDI labyrinths into the 4th dimension" on "Empire Waste" debut, out Aug. 3rd


Courtesy of Desperate Spirits: In her feature length debut, Mlle. V-T etches MIDI labyrinths into the 4th dimension with alacritous disregard for contemporary electronic microgenre orthodoxies, forging sonic hybrids at once novel and grotesque, eschewing the easy pentatonic or four-banger for labyrinthine harmonic and polyrhythmic structures that run perhaps contrary to her household-name aspirations, pop naïf that she is." The debut album Empire Waste arrives on Aug. 3rd via Lexington, Kentucky's Desperate Spirits label.

“I imagined Syd Barrett joining New Order with just the kick drum and the 808 state, or whatever it’s called, for the pulse," says  John Andrew Fredrick of the black watch about Witches! (July 27th, ATOM Records), his band's 16th (!) album in a prolific career spanning 30 years. Look out for lead single "Georgette, Georgette" coming soon. Hear current single "Oh You Little Witch" (from "The Paper Boats" EP) at PopMatters.
