New Albums: March 2017

Folks, I told myself I was gonna watch a movie tonight. But I couldn't decide between Alien or the original Ghost in the Shell. So I wrote a blog instead! Enjoy!

Arkasist (Fresno, CA)
Evolutionary Onset
MEEEEEETTTTTAAAAL.

Crash (Fresno, CA)
Sub Life
Winner of the Cutest Album Cover contest. Is this a thing people do with their kids? I feel like I've seen alot of these elaborately dressed baby photo shoots lately. It is an amazing trend. Plus this album has weirdcore production and legit flows. Basically, come for them chubby cheeks, stay for the good tunes.

Cease (Fresno, CA)
The River
METAL WITH A TWIST OF HARDCORE.

Ensepulcher (Fresno, CA)
No Sanctity in Death
EVEN MORE FUCKING METAL!!!!!
FM Transmitter (Fresno, CA)
95.5 fm
Ay! FM Transmitter, I'm talking to you! This is some WEIRD shit. Like, I'm digging it and all, but that high pitched vocal is kind bugging me out. It's like the little voice inside my head decided to make a freak folk album. It's unsettling. Keep it up!

Neon the Unknown (Fresno, CA)
Millennial
Neon the Unknown just keeps cranking out them purple hued tunes, soundtracking my psyches inter-dimensional travels.

Ocher (Visalia, CA)
Found Songs
Ocher frontman Steven Potorke literally reached into his very own version of the Disney Vault and found these previously hidden gems. Classic Ocher, repleat with jangly hooks and laid back feels. Ima start up #OcherReunion right now!

White Glove Service (Fresno, CA)
Infinite
Refined hip-hop reggae rock from Fresno's favorite butler posse.
