Nova Miller releases the video for her girl power anthem "Man's World"    ​  


Today, Nova Miller, is gifting fans with the edgy music video for her girl power anthem "Man's World," - watch here. The dynamic music video for "Man's World" shows Nova in a new light, proving her power and boldly stating that she doesn't need to rely on anyone-- especially a man. The Man's World video embodies the song's theme that women are capable of anything a man can do and more. "Man's World" features epic instrumentals and poignant lyrics about self-validation and independence. The song has a vintage sound and challenges the antiquated idea that a woman needs a man to be happy. This video is passionate, forceful, and is all about female strength-- it's a woman's world!

"Man's World" comes off of Nova's latest EP, The Passion, released in October. The EP features 8 brilliant pop anthems to dance to, blast at a party, or get in your feels to, hitting on themes of self-love and girl power. She is a standout talent with a sound that seamlessly blends new school pop with a retro aesthetic, elevated by her soulful voice and her undeniable charm. Her music takes inspiration from 60's era groups and makes use of classic strings and harmonies that make her stand out from the crowd. Nova Miller's striking personality and show-stopping vocals have earned her popularity on TikTok (@novamillermusic) with 2.2 million followers and over 24.1 million likes. Nova uses TikTok to connect with fans and show off her acoustic capabilities and range.

Music is a cornerstone in Nova Miller's life. Her remarkable story includes her sleeping in her father’s guitar case backstage while on tour with her parents and performing for the Crown Princess of Sweden. Discovered by former artist turned music executive Lolene in a Stockholm dance studio at age 12, Nova has spent much of her life in the studio or on stage and she wouldn’t have it any other way. The multi-instrumentalist and 8 octave vocalist quickly learned that dealing with opinionated personalities and constantly being underestimated in the music industry was a daily occurrence, but learned to find strength in those experiences. “As girls, we have to be better, we have to do more to be seen. I'll take that fight. I'll work a bit harder, and I'll prove myself.” At only 19, Nova has an unwavering sense of identity and a strong-minded lyrical narrative that gives her music passion and heart. Her empowering lyrics, perfect pitch, layered over shimmering splashes of pop make Nova Miller a unique force in music.

TENEBRO sign with Xtreem Music and reveal their 1st single


Italian horror death metallers TENEBRO sign with Xtreem Music for their debut album to be released next summer. The band will see their debut "Demo 2019" plus the new released cassette EP "Liberaci dal Male", both on CD format on February 23rd through Xtreem Music.

TENEBRO is a Horror Glorifying Death Metal band from Italy. Inspired and influenced by Italian horror cult movies from the 70/80's. The horrendous concept comes from Il Beccamorto's (aka Mortician in English) long-lived family business of funeral directors which they are handing down since 1949.

After some problems and due to illegal activities of their early line-up, they never officially recorded anything. Il Becchino has been forced to stop immediately the project. During last years, he started to write music again that was recorded in 2019 with the help of Il Beccamorto. So, "Demo 2019" was born in March of the same year.

After a short time from the release, Il Beccamorto officially joined to the band. TENEBRO just released a new 3-song EP called "Liberaci dal Male" on cassette format on December 25th, 2020 and will be released on CD format together with "Demo 2019" in February 2021 through Xtreem Music.

KILLER KIN: Ball-breaking, black leather sporting, garage-punk outfit prep debut 7" 'Sonic Love'


Killer Kin is a screaming, sonic, rockin’ waltz that actually rolls; garage-punks claiming to be the descendants of Arthur “Killer” Kane make rock n roll feel dangerous again.

Frustrated duo Mattie Lea and Chloe Rose write ball-breaking, black leather sporting, soundtrack-to-your revenge songs. In 2018, the pair formed the band, recruited the rest of the gang, and it began to burgeon and burn.

Notorious for these untamed exhibitions the Kin sate a deep-desire for reprisal, retribution, revenge, and will cut the words from your motor mouth and brandish a blues that will make you want to bounce to the beat in your black boots.

In 2021 the band will release their debut vinyl 45 called Sonic Love on Pig Baby Records, which will be followed up by a full length in early 2022 the Killer Kin is COMING FOR YOU!

Detroit rock ’n’ roll band The Stools keep it simple, stupid on new EP 'Carport'


Dwelling from Detroit, The Stools are a bluesy punk trio. Think Nuggets vs. Killed by Death.

This is the kind of mangled barking terrifyingly manic garage that the Midwest pumps out better and more consistently than anybody and The Stools seem to be challenging every one of us to a frenetic fistfight for top spot.


With 4 songs averaging less than 2 minutes, their new Carport EP is a garage punk banger a la Gun Club meets the Oblivians that tremors and nearly buckles under its own weight before it ends.

Brazilian art-punk trio Herzegovina drop 'potent, schizophrenic jangle' with debut LP, 'Emergency'


Listening to songs like the schizophrenic jangle art-punk "Fellini's Dreams" and smashing jammer, surf punk-esque "Ego Arcade" from Brazil-based Herzegovina and I am pleasantly, ecstatically (in fact) transported to proto-punk, pre-new wave, art-punk sounds circa 1973 to 1979. Within the hills of Rio de Janeiro, Rafael Crespo (guitar/vox), Marcello Fernandes (bass) and Mario Mamede (drums) have been creating their post-punk abstracted sound since 2016.

As I listened to these two songs that sit smack dab in the middle of their latest album "Emergency" and the divergent mix of tracks prior and after like the jagged surreal "Black Cat" or the bottom-fed bass/guitar assault of the title track or the dark horror pop affection of "Intoxicação" (which is deliciously mind-blowing), I thought of an amalgam of so many artists I love like Television, Devo, Richard Hell and the Voidoids and even early Talking Heads.



Herzegovina will take you on a surreal journey full of dark turns and sharp edges. I am digging the ride.

Singer Songwriter Chris St. John Releases Contemplative Single “I Called You Rose”

2021 brings new talent to light without wait. Singer/Songwriter Chris St. John just released "I Called You Rose", the first single from his upcoming debut album- "I'm Dreaming". The song is a mix of stylistic flavors including soothing vocal tones reminiscent of James Taylor and Jackson Browne, as well as vintage country rock vibes like troubadours of the 1960's Gene Clark and John Martyn. It's a very tight and perfectly produced single with great harmonies, stellar arrangements and fantastic guitar solos. John's mellow mood and musicality is remarkably fresh and enticing for this brand of songwriting. It is not any sort of replica of previous artists but brings forth a new 'sound' to kickstart the new year. 2020 was all over the place and music listeners are in need of some focused direction. 

For those who prefer softer and comforting singers that write lyrics we can all relate to, Chris St. John is here to swiftly provide that. I look forward to the full length which features 13 originals and a cover version of The Grateful Dead's "Ripple". The complete album release is expected in early February 2021.

“I Called You Rose was the last song I wrote for the album”, said St. John “It came fast and I could not get it out of my head. It’s a song about falling in love and breaking up – with alcohol. I like that it’s upbeat and has a happy ending. I pray this song for everyone who finds it hard to put the bottle down.”




Over the last quarter century, Singer/Songwriter (and former Judge) Chris St. John has truly led a diverse and successful professional career in the field of law. Now, his dream of lateral success in the music business is starting to become a reality, with the release of the instantly satisfying first single “I Called You Rose” available this Friday Jan 15th, 2021 on Spotify and all the major music services.

St. John has been a practicing attorney for 26 years; a former judge and prosecutor; worked in the State Department, participating in the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit in 1987; and lived, studied, and taught in China later that year. He was also a Congressional Aide and is now a volunteer firefighter.

In 2015, he and his friend started a not-for-profit charity called HALO Missions, which provides medical care, clothing, food, farming equipment, and surgeries for AIDS orphans and the extreme poor throughout Africa, Central America, and the Caribbean.

“My professional career is what I do. These songs are who I am. They are about my personal life. The songs have been written over about 30 years, with four new ones written in the last several months to finish up the album,” he added.

The topics include the loss of love at a young age; the loss of his parents; the birth of his son John (now 17) and life with his wife of 27 years Elisabeth; a surprise DNA discovery; a serious illness where he was put in a medically induced coma, and a nurse sang him back to life; the loss of a young relative in a car accident and the subsequent climb out of depression; alcohol addiction and recovery; and a gift from his grandmother that he intends to return to her someday.

“The title of the LP is ‘I’m Dreaming’ because some of these songs were dreamed up and written down when I awoke. And there are so many references to dreaming in the album. I guess I like to dream. People have told me I should write a book or make an album. This is both to me.”

The album will and individual songs can be downloaded for purchase from iTunes, Spotify, and all other musical platforms shortly. These first listens are offered as a gift.

Another Sky Releases “Was I Unkind?” From New EP 'Music For Winter Vol. 1'


On the first day of 2021, Another Sky will release their latest body of work, an EP entitled Music For Winter Vol. I. The EP follows their debut full-length I Slept on The Floor, released earlier this year via Fiction / Missing Piece Records. Today, the band released the EP’s third single "Was I Unkind?", following the recently released "It Keeps Coming" and "Sun Seeker". Alongside the studio version of “Was I Unkind?,” the London-based four piece have also released two very special live performance videos, recorded with London Contemporary Voices at London’s Union Chapel in 2019. The first being a live version of “Was I Unkind?,” and the second a medley of “Was I Unkind?,” “Tree,” and “Avalanche.”

“We wanted to release a song to celebrate Winter Solstice, a significant time of year in many cultures,” Catrin Vincent, vocalist and lyricist of Another Sky says of the new single. “‘Was I Unkind?’ was written about the time I accidentally killed my favourite plant. The plant became symbolic of how I treated myself. I realised I was as trapped in the world as the plant was, at the mercy of myself. Winter Solstice is a time of death and rebirth.”

"Winter is the perfect time for sombre music," she continues. On how the project came together, Catrin explains, "some songs are old, some are new, all are entirely collaborative. After being kept apart because of the lockdown and writing a bunch of our second album separately, we just wanted to get back into our studio and record." The entire EP was recorded, produced and mixed by the band themselves at their South London studio, The Lighthouse, in October 2020.

"Where do we find our portable paradises?" - Catrin found herself staring at this very poem by Roger Robinson on the London Underground in March 2020.


For the first time in six years, the band couldn't see each other, and the band's bassist Naomi was able to sit still long enough to confront her intense fear of going to hell for being in a same-sex relationship, due to a Christian upbringing.

Catrin explains, "after lockdown eased, myself and Naomi revisited the opening track 'Pieces', an old track originally sung by Naomi. We wrote lyrics together from an imagined conversation with a loved one telling Naomi she was going to hell." 

Naomi’s journey became the lyrical foundation for each of these six songs as Catrin drew universal comparisons with others' lives; "a struggle with identity, walking past churches you are no longer part of and the person you become when you are in pain. If there is no end in sight of struggle, where are our white sands, green hills and fresh fish? If we can't ever truly escape, which is what we were exploring in our debut album I Slept On The Floor, can we carry paradise in ourselves?"

Naomi adds about her experience, "It’s so easy to push things to the back of your mind. You never really know the impact this has on you until it becomes overbearing, and you're forced to address it. I found it incredibly cathartic to tackle these issues head-on by visualising certain situations and being able to say whatever I needed to say, both in therapy and in writing music”.

The band are currently recording their second full-length album which is anticipated to drop in 2021. Music For Winter Volume. II is also set to be released winter 2021.

Another Sky’s debut album I Slept On The Floor proved to the world just how vital the words of lyricist and vocalist Catrin Vincent truly are. Her poetic rage has been titular in Another Sky’s story, grappling with the topics of toxic relationships, childhood trauma, systematic elitism, Brexit Britain, the rise of Donald Trump and much more. Juxtaposed against the horizon reaching sound of guitarist Jack Gilbert, bassist Naomi Le Dune and drummer Max Doohan, Another Sky sound like nothing and nobody else.
