Mastermind Alexi Laiho states:
"Transference is a straight up CHILDREN OF BODOM to the core type song and therefore was a good pick for a video and obviously is one of our favorite tracks.
It always had an evil vibe to it which I wish I knew how to explain because it still gives me chills… Enjoy!”

Out on Hang Up and SP Records, “Witness to A Chase Scene” is a testament of Porcupine’s musical expertise - a grinding guitar riff injected with adrenaline preempts Virock’s smoothly doubled vocals that cascade atop closely calculated distortions and reverb. At the chorus, Virock belts out “you've been chosen / now collect your spoils” with control and authority. Porcupine successfully mixes math rock, shoegaze, and indie rock with Seattle grunge guitar to create this radio-friendly single.
While building a local fan base, the band plays a lot of gigs in some of the surrounding larger cities in the Midwest. Porcupine has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with 18th Dye, Mission of Burma, Meat Puppets, Black Box Revelation and more.
Denai plays live at The Slaughtered Lamb, EC1V 0DX next Tuesday 7th May.
19 YO Denai Moore has been receiving lavish praise on the blogosphere for her blue soulful folk, all wrapped up in complex harmonies.
The lush emotional resonances that country-folkers like Iron & Wine draw from their music are combined with a teenager's ear for pop melody that could be a Paramore song.
A songwriting talent of Feist-ian proportions, inspired to pick up a guitar by Bon Iver at the age of 17 she now counts Plan B and Tom Odell as fans.
The ‘Saudade EP’ is her first on the new Hard Livings label licensed through Because Music (Metronomy, Django Django, Soko, Connan Mockasin).
Now she is headlining at The Slaughtered Lamb to launch her debut EP - an opportunity to catch her pulse-quickening voice live.
'Saudade' is a Portuguese word that has no direct translation in English but it means a longing for a lost loved one. A bitter-sweat nostalgia for the excitement, happiness, pleasure and well-being of that love.
Listening to ‘Wolves’, ‘Fatigue’, ‘Gone’ and ‘Part 4’ with that in mind, you have a suite of heartbreak songs with a raw freshness from a London teenage soul channeling Americana and producing something strangely new.
Catch Denai live:
- 7th May - The Slaughtered Lam - 'Saudade EP' launch headline show
- 23rd May - Electric Ballroom, London - supporting Tom Odell
- 30th May - Opera House, Manchester - supporting Iron & Wine
- 31st May - The Barbican, London - supporting Iron & Wine
- 1st June - Cigale, Paris - supporting Iron & Wine
- 17th August - Green Man Festival, Wales
Will Hagle did not pump this up like Dee Brown.
The rest of the world was introduced to Chicago’s harrowing new form of gangster rap when Kanye decided to remix Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like.” The song found ‘Ye firing off a barrage of names of young rappers from Chicago. Then he stepped off the plane in Qatar to design hotels and nail it. Kanye is as emotionally distant from the city he enlisted Chris Martin to sing about as Derrick Rose is right now.
But if Kanye remains globetrotting, the least we can hope for is that he acts as an ambassador. When Justin Bieber’s visit to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam somehow became national news, the media’s general consensus was that if his comments inspired just one belieber to pick up Anne Frank’s diary, this’d all be worth it. All we can hope is that one befuddled Kanye fan in some distant corner of the world consults RapGenius to decipher the line “Shout out to L-E-P, Jay Boogie right?” Right?
What that fan would find is the LEP Bogus Boys, a duo with the street hardness and knowledge of youngsters like Chief Keef but a throwback poise reminiscent of aging 90s-era MCs. The Bogus Boys recently released a track called “Coroner Van,” which borrows its title and hook from Jadakiss’s “Made You Look” remix. The song was released in anticipation of Frank The Butcher’s forthcoming mixtape, All Is Fair, which will celebrate the launch of his BAU clothing line. In Chiraq, apparently, “why put you in a verse when I could put you in a coroner van” is considered a strong marketing tagline.
“Coroner Van” has a gritty beat with organ-stabs fit for a horror movie, and the boys are as menacing as the track’s production. When they threaten to turn white tee-shirts burgundy, they sound believable. The duo also references Dee Brown, and I can only hope they’re talking about one of my favorite basketball players, the one that led the University of Illinois to the 2005 national championship game. Illinois isn’t all that bad after all [ed. note: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqxaGNbTIOk.] Unfortunately, they follow the basketball reference with “shots ricochet and catch ‘em on the rebound.” It’s never a good sign for a society when truly violent gangster rap comes back. It’s a sign of something gone wrong. But then again, this is good.
