Stream “Spooky” by Luke Seymoup (Folk-Punk)

Australian ukulele enthusiast Luke Seymoup is streaming the first single off his new album Poke’Gods, out May 27th. It’s called “Spooky” and it’s about spooky monsters, naturally.

Of the album, Symoup says, “A tribute to the early days of Poke’mon and the Wild West days of the World Wide Web. When instructions to find rare, unheard of Poke’mon could be found on Angelfire and Geocities websites and then spread by word of mouth as if they were fact.

Mew is under the truck.

There is a secret garden behind Bill’s house.

If you find the Mist Stone, your Poke’mon will evolve into Poke’Gods.”

After 10 years as a band, Albany Americana punkers The Slaughterhouse Chorus are calling it quits at the end of 2019. For this longtime fan that’s a hard pill to swallow.

Having heard the entire release I can attest to the fact that it represents the fellas’ best material to date and you can get yourself a taste via the new track “Greenplates” below.



DS Exclusive: Assembly of Arsonists Releases Video For ‘What Lies in Ashes’

I wish I could say I “like” The Assembly of Arsonists new video for their track “What Lies In Ashes” but that would be far too simple of a statement for such a dense subject. The video, like its architect Travis James, is frightening, clever, original, disgusting, comical, theatrical, and above all intelligent.

“What Lies in Ashes” is the second single off of The Assembly of Arsonists upcoming LP The End is Dear due for release on May 24. The album’s first single “Learning At Both Ends” dropped on April 14,

Check out the video for “What Lies In Ashes” below.

If you are unaware of Sincere Engineer here is the rundown: Sincere Engineer exists in several forms but is primarily the brainchild/working moniker of Chicago’s Deanna Belos. She released her début full-length late last year accompanied by a full band, and it landed like a welcome breath of fresh air; honest, raw and inspiring fresh air.
